It's been an exciting ride for Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Corey Clement. Clement, a Glassboro, N.J. native, was an undrafted free agent out of the University of Wisconsin last spring and had to work diligently to get a spot on the team.

Clerc was the third out of five children Joseph-Francois and Marie-Elisabeth had. Clerc’s Family were well-known by the jobs the males had. Since the 15th century the males in his family would serve the king. Laurent father was an attorney and was also a mayor of La Balme from 1780 to 1814.

Toussaint L’ouverture was a slave, who was born and raised on a plantation. As a child, he was thought how to read and right. In 1770, Toussaint was a free man, but during that time, many people in Haiti were enslaved and weren’t granted equality. Toussaint and his good associate, Jean Jacque Dessalines wanted everyone to be free and treated equally. During this time, many slaves were treated brutally and it was a struggle for the slaves in the French’s colony. In 1799, Whites in Haiti had more power over the colony, but since it was a mixed raced colony, the Blacks hoped for an essential change in the colony. Even though those Blacks were born free, they wanted to be treated with equality and with respect. Throughout this, there was a slave who was a voodoo priest,
Born on December 26th, 1785 in the small village of La-Balmes-les-Grottes, France, (a village on the northeastern edge of Lyon) Laurent Clerc was born the only child to the Clerc family. The name of his parents were Joseph-Francois Clerc and Marie-Elizabeth Candy. Joseph was the Royal Civil Attorney and Justice of the Peace and his mother, Marie, was the magistrate of another town. His father was also mayor of their village from 1780-1814. Although, soon they’d come to realize their young boy wasn’t your average infant. It is unclear whether Laurent was born deaf or if it was caused from an accident he had as a child.
Everything has been done before, and the trick is to craft the sound and present it in a new light. When scrolling through the world of music the genre "garage blues" popped up in association with the band Le Zets. My assumption led to a universal sound of covers and repetitive noises. Never assume. The first time I heard Le Zets, the only thing that came out of my mouth were the words, "holy shit."
Andre Courreges, who developed it separately and incorporated it into his Mod look, for spring/summer 1965. His miniskirts were less body-hugging, and worn with the white "Courrèges boots" that became a trademark. By introducing the miniskirt into the haute couture of the fashion industry, Courrèges gave it a greater degree of respectability than might otherwise have been expected of a street fashion. An even more prominent French fashion designer, Yves St. Laurent, began to show shorter skirts in his fall/winter 1965 collection, including his famous "Mondrian" dress, a trend that he continued with throughout the 1960s,
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Sj, was born on May 1, 1881 in Sarcenat, France and he died April 10, 1955 in New York City ("Pierre Teilhard De Chardin"). He was a Jesuit paleontologist who worked to connect and understand both evolution and faith. Teilhard first became interested in nature as a child and as he grew older he furthered his studies in both geology and the natural sciences. After he entered into the Jesuits, when he was eighteen, he prepared to give up his interests so that he may better give himself to his spiritual vocation. While in the Jesuits, the Church issued a monitum to Teilhard warning him against uncritical acceptance of the ideas he had and would later write about. Even with this warning, his spiritual dedication was
journalist. Vorilhon claims to have had a visitation from aliens who proclaimed that they did by
Times have changed in the venerated world of those devoted so greatly to the love of the lord, yet in this change has aroused a nuance of thinking of how that love should be portrayed to the masses. Many factions have been roused and felled throughout the many ages of Christianity, many holding greater disdain for their fellow believers than even that of the infidel. In all realizing that some of these paragons of virtue have no real admiration for the religion of which they stand as advocates, but that in their lust for power they use the Church as their proxy for attaining greater strength and influence.
Henri Philippe Petain was France’s greatest hero and military general in World War I. In 1914, Petain was a 58 year old colonel at the start of battle, earning great honor from stopping the Germans at the Battle of Verdun and then gained command over the French forces in 1917. Over a spread of many years Petain held multiple top military positions, including chief of state in 1940 after Germany’s invasions. Petain worked with the Nazi regime and began to adopt repressive measures against the Jews as he pursued a National Revival. In his later years, Petain was accused as a traitor for being in charge of the pro-German Vichy regime after France’s defeat in World War II. Petain was tried for his actions and was sentenced to death before his sentence was changed to life in prison.

Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most famous painters of all time. His style was post-impressionism. He was a Dutch man, born in an averaged sized town called Groot-Zundert, Netherlands. The reason he became an artist, and the thing that influenced him the most to become an artist was actually his mother. His mother was interested in nature, she did a lot of drawing and watercolors and that really influenced her son heavily and got him into art. When he was fifteen years old, his family was really struggling with their finances. Because of this, he was forced to get a job and help them provide. It ended up that his uncle owned an art dealership, so he got a job there.
Fashion has been around ever since ancient times, since the time of the Romans, it survived the world wars and is yet today a business with rapid changes. Fashion started off as an art form, a way for the riches to show their social status with unique and innovative designs that only they could afford. It was a way to separate the social classes of the society. In this paper I will include the creator of haute couture, and how the following designers developed couture, as well as having leading names in today’s ready-to-wear industry. The list is long, but I chose to focus on the three most important designers of the modern fashion industry.
Paul Poiret was born on April 20th, 1879 in Paris, France. His contributions to twentieth-century fashion has earned him the title in many people’s eyes as the “King of Fashion”, because he established the principle of modern dress and created the blueprint of the modern fashion industry. Poiret’s designs and ideas led the direction of modern design history. He was born into a working class family and his natural charisma eventually gained him entry into some of the most exclusive ateliers of the Belle Époque. Jacques Doucet, one of the capital’s most prominent couturiers, hired him after seeing promising sketches he had sold to other dressmakers. Furthermore, he was hired by the House of Worth and was put to work to create less
