Ada Augusta King

Augusta Ada Byron was born on December 10, 1815 in London, England to the poet George Gordon Noel Byron and w3ife Anna Isabella Milbanke. Ada was the only legitimate child of her parents. It was rumored that Ada’s father Lord Byron fathered a child by his half-sister, Augusta Leigh, whom Ada was named after. Several months after Ada’s birth her mother took her and left her father, filed for separation and left England for good. Ada’s father never saw her again. It was years later before Ada would have any contact with her sister, Medora Leigh, the daughter of Byron’s half-sister Augusta Leigh. Ada and Medora were told by Ada’s mother that Byron was Medora’s father.

Ada’s mother taught her music and mathemathics at an early age and home schooled her as well. Ada also received tutoring in mathemathics and science from William Frend, William king, and Mary Somervilleand Augusta De Morgan.

In 1932, Mary Somerville, noted researcher and scientific auther of the 19th century introduced Ada to Charles Babbage and later to her husband. Ada began studying and documenting on Babbage calculating machine, the Analytical Engine. She published the first in-depth paper on programming a computer.

In 1935, at the age of 19 Ada married William King, later becoming the first Earl of Lovelace, in which she gained the title the Countess of Lovelace. The couple had three children, sons Byron Noel, Ralph Gordon, and daughter Anne Isabella.

Ada became an expert on Babbage’s work by observing his design and asking him questions. In 1842, Luigi Federico Manabrea, an Itilian mathematician at the University of Turin, published a paper describing the function and theory of Babbage’s Analtical…...

History of Ada

... is an assessment of the history of the ADA and the ensuing legal precedence that has been set since its adoption. It will discuss in detail the forcefulness of its passage including several political issues that led to its adoption as well as the legal issues that resulted in its conception and development. The paper will also address any outcomes that may have changes or clarified the act, especially those most recent findings that could change the act significantly. The paper will then go on to discuss the foundational way in which the ADA has changed the everyday lives of people. The ADA has changed the face of the belief system with regard to disabilities and the people who have them. It has given people with disabilities a voice, and a set of sounding board organizations that will hear their voice. It among other legislation’s has allowed people with disabilities an opportunity to be seen in the world, rather than to hide within the confines of their home or an institution. It has also changed the way people with disabilities live their lives, and are employed in many good ways. Lastly the paper will express an opinion about the progress that the ADA has created or not created in the overall goal of creating an inclusive environment of respect for individuals with disabilities. The answer to the question “Does abuses no longer occur?” may seem surprising but in truth the answer is no, abuses still occur regularly and the ADA has not done as much as it was hoped it...

...Due to Karina having a medical condition that requires her to take steroids, I would deem her disabled under the ADA. Karina taking these steroids and other medications has made her body gain weight making her unable to wear the uniform properly, the stockings and heels. Due to her condition she has back, circulatory system, and endurance problems throughout the day. According to Karina’s doctor, her condition prevents her from wearing the stocking and heels. Karina is technically disabled due to her condition. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prevents any discrimination against those who are challenged physically due to disability, which would be Karina. Although her symptoms do not prevent her from performing her daily work activities. Her employer cannot hold against her the fact that she has to take this medication to relieve her pain. If Karina’s employer is willing to compromise with her about a solution that will accommodate her and her medical condition then she will able to still hold her position in the front of the store and working the register as she is required to do. The company could allow Karina to wear flat black shoes or black tennis shoes with black slacks to show that she is an employee.

The King

...Metamorphosis of King Lear Through the course of the play, King Lear goes through a process of attaining self-knowledge. With this knowledge, he goes through a metamorphosis of person, much like a caterpillar's change into a butterfly. In the beginning, King Lear's vanity, and the image and exercise of power dominate his person. But a series of losses (based on his own bad decisions), a wise "fool", a powerful storm, a seemingly crazy man, and the death of one who truly loved him clear his vision and allow him to see himself and the world as they truly are. The pain and suffering endured by Lear eventually tears down his strength and sanity. Lear is not as strong, arrogant, and filled with pride as he seems in the beginning of the play. Instead he a is weak, scared and confused old man. At the end of the play Lear has completely lost his sanity with the loss of his daughter, Cordelia and this is the breaking point that leads Lear to his death. In the beginning, King Lear shows his need for praise is how he chooses to divide his kingdom among his daughters. The one who praises him with the most "love" shall receive the largest area of land. This is even more evident when considering that Lear already has divided up the kingdom before the praising even begins, as he gives each daughter her land before hearing the next daughter's praise. Thus the entire arbitration is just a show and an ego boost to himself. It is because of his love for praise that makes him react so......

...Death of King Tut In: Philosophy and Psychology Death of King Tut Did King Tut die from a sickness or was he murdered, that’s the question. Some Egyptologists and Scientists argue over the fact regarding King Tut’s death. The first theory is that King Tut was murdered because he had a lot of power. King Tut’s father (Akhenaten) changed Egypt in a big way. He wanted Egyptians to only believe in one God, in which it was against what they believed in. Some of the Egyptians wasn’t happy with that decision. King Tut’s father changed the way that the priest thought and it would have forced the priest to close down their temples and believe in what he believed in. The change caused the environment to be unstable. This change would also change the thinking from hundreds of years prior. When King Tut was a child, his father died and that’s how he received the throne. With King Tut being so young, he had little knowledge of how to run Egypt so that meant that he needed someone with a lot of experience to help him, so they would also look at the help that he had. Meaning, the help may have had something to do with his death. The second theory from Forensic experts was that King Tut may have had an infection. Doctor Zahi Hawass, stated that King Tut had a crack in his skull and it may have been caused during the process of mummification. Doctor Zahi Hawass also stated that King Tut had a fracture in left leg, supposedly to have happened a few days before...

Augusta Savage

... Spanning from the 1920s to the mid 1930s the Harlem Renaissance was a literary, artistic, and intellectual movement that kindled a new black cultural identity. The Harlem Renaissance influenced future generations of black writers, artists, musicians, and intellectuals. Many renowned black writers, artists, and musicians had help give birth to this new movement taking place. One in particular being Augusta Savage. She was an African American artist and arts educator. She was born Augusta Christine Fells on February 29, 1892,in Green Cove Springs, Florida. As a child began to make art by using the natural clay found in her community. She would sculpt animals and other small objects she could find. Though she loved to sculpt her father greatly disapproved. He tried hi best to stop her from sculpting and focus on something more productive. But despite her father's objections, she continued to make sculptures. In 1915 after her family moved to West Palm Beach, Florida Savage found it difficult to make sculptures due to the lack of clay. She then started to use other materials from the local potter in order to make sculptures. She then created a group of figures that she entered in a local county fair. Her work was well-received, winning a prize and the support of the fair's organizer, George Graham Currie. He encouraged her to study art. Savage moved to New York City during the early 1920s to better establish herself as a sculptor. She studied art at Cooper Union......

Psychology Ada

...scholarship and cheating on her, with her cousin no less, was more than Ada thought she could bear. However, with heartache, Ada made a great discovery of her wonderful powers. She had super strength and the ability to sense when people lie and hear their thoughts. Feeling the lowest she ever felt, Ada made a promise to herself that she would do everything in her power to prevent or stop anyone else from being used and betrayed the way she had. And as for the betrayers, she would bring them to justice. After making this personal vow, Ada worried that it would be a hard one to carry out, being that sometimes people don‘t want to accept or believe that their loved ones are deceiving them. To her surprise, things turned out the exact opposite. As if sensing a change in her, people began to ask her for her advice, and pretty soon she became the go-to girl when it came down to relationship problems and concerns. After finishing high school and earning a degree in psychology from Mississippi State University, Ada met and fell in love with a young but extremely successful lawyer, and decided to practice psychology and settle in Philadelphia, Mississippi, and continue her work protecting hearts. The people of Philadelphia were so appreciative of the help she provided that they decided to give a banquet in her honor. Dressed to kill in a black satin off the shoulder evening gown, with her hair in a softly upswept bun, Ada made her rounds at the banquet, thanking everyone for......

History of the Ada

...employment, access to society, and education. When the individuals with disabilities were seen as a group or a minority, they were seen as deserving of basic civil rights protection. No one individual was the first to need civil rights protection from being disabled. As society progressed, those with disabilities were left behind. They had to fight for their rights to be a part of society and this took place in countless towns all over the country, for years, before anything was done about it on a governmental level. The first barriers faced by Americans with disabilities included access to transportation, employment opportunities, and access to numerous public services. “Passed by Congress in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the nation's first comprehensive civil rights law addressing the needs of people with disabilities, prohibiting discrimination in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications” (eeoc.gov). Title I of the act is the provisions for employment discrimination. Title I did not go into effect for two years so that the commission had time to develop regulations regarding Title I, to conduct public education programs to inform employers of the disability law, and to allow employers time to adjust for the new regulations. Title II prohibits discrimination based on disability in public services and activities provided by state and local government to exclude local transportation. The Department of......

Ada Lovelace

...Ada Lovelace was born in 1815, and died in 1852 from cancer. Ada Lovelace was the daughter of a famous poet Lord Byron and Anabella Millbank, who also enjoyed math. Ada’s parents were divorced right after she was born and was never able to meet her estrange father. However, her father corresponded with her mother on her upbringing. Anabella Millbank, Ada’s mother, did not want her daughter to be a poet like her father and did everything possible, pushed Ada night and day, to learn mathematics. Even though Ada’s fond interests were elsewhere, her mother diminished those interests until Ada grew a fondness of math, by no choice of her own. At an early age Ada met with Charles Babbage in London, and with that Ada first learned of the Difference Engine. This is when Ada Lovelace’s eyes grew with enormous content, interest, and enthusiasm of the invention, which was later known as the Analytical Engine. In her twenties, Ada married her husband (several years her age) Earl William King and soon after, she bore three children. After having her children she became engrossed and focused on the formulation of the Analytical Engine, which took several years of extensive work, which she loved. Ada composed a “plan for how the engine might calculate Bernoulli numbers. This plan is now regarded as the first “computer program” (Larry Riddle, p. 1). Ada became ill and was diagnosed with cancer of the uterus and died at an early age, like her father, right after her accomplishments. Ada’s......

Ada Versus Adm

...Running Head: ADA VERSUS ADM ADA versus ADM Christina Dickinson Grand Canyon University: EDA 535 November 8, 2011 ADA Versus ADM Many factors must go into account when distributing funds in schools. Some of the funds must be distributed between administration, teachers and support staff salaries, bus drivers, coaches, and school police to name a few. Once all the funds are distributed throughout the district, then the focus becomes on student allocation. When allocating money for students, the school district needs to take into consideration meal plans for the lower economical students, after school activities, and extra-curricular programs. The question becomes whether or not we allocate funds bases on our students daily attendance or their average daily membership? In order to determine how student funds should be allocated we must understand what average daily attendance (ADA) and average daily membership (ADM) and the differences between the two. It is important to also understand how each of them could be applies to our school districts budget. According to EdSource, average daily attendance is defined as the total number of days of attendance for all students divided by the total number of school days in a given period (2011). There are many aspects to think about when deciding whether ADA will work for our school district. As a school district, we must look into how many students we have to provide funding for throughout the entire district. We......

Ada and Affirmative Action

...ADA and Affirmative Action The United States of America is a culturally diverse place. There are people from all over the world living in here. There are people from different cultures, people with different religious and moral standards and beliefs, and people from different races and of different ethnicities. There are also people living amongst us that face special circumstances such as being physically or mentally disabled, challenged by a chronic illness or even sexual orientation. Throughout history there have been cases where people have been discriminated against, ostracized and excluded based solely on their race, culture, religion, or disabilities. The American Disabilities Act and Affirmative Action are examples of two separate laws that were put into place to protect these people, and in turn offering these people equal opportunities. The American Disabilities Act or ADA was put into place initially in 1990 by President George W. Bush. The ADA is a civil rights law that protects people with disabilities. The ADA describes a person with a disability as follows: “An individual with a disability is a person who -- has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, or has a record of such an impairment” (U.S. Department of Justice, American Disabilities Act, 2012). Specific illnesses covered are epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, heart disease, mental retardation, cancer, and diabetes. Specific learning, speech and......

The King

...Rosie, who always wore a tiny pair of rose earrings and kept a wad of chewing tobacco in her mouth, talked with my mom between spits of brown, runny liquid directed into her plastic cup. Including my cousins and a few distant relatives, approximately twenty-five people were there talking, laughing, and mingling. And there I was, all alone in the land of giants with only my cowgirl Barbie to protect me. I felt like a guppy trying to swim upstream with a school of trout. Even though we had only been there for five minutes, finding my dad and leaving were my priorities. Looking through the rambunctious crowd, giving up on ever finding my father, I found someone better-my Uncle Chris. His spirit and his look had all the markings of the King. He was wearing a pink and purple paisley shirt with a wide-pointed collar that nearly covered his shoulders. His shirt was neatly tucked into a pair of pearl-white bell bottoms that were too long and covered his feet; strapped around his waist was a belt sporting a tremendous silver buckle with "TCB" engraved on it. He had dyed black hair with a tinge of blond roots showing that was always greased back with Royal Crown pomade. He spoke in a strong baritone voice with a slight southern twang that I could always hear over anyone else's voice, especially that day when he noticed me staring and yelled, "There's my little Amy Marie!" I repeatedly endured listening to Uncle Kelly refer to Chris as "the family retard." Every year I heard......
