Form 8-K : is a report required to be filed by public companies with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. After a significant event like bankruptcy or departure of a CEO, a public company generally must file a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days to provide an update to previously filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and/or Annual Reports on Form 10-K. Form 8-K is a very broad form used to notify investors of any unscheduled material event that is important to shareholders or the SEC.
Form 10-K : is an annual report required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), that gives a comprehensive summary of a public company‘s performance. Although similarly named, the annual report on Form 10-K is distinct from the often glossy “annual report to shareholders”, which a company must send to its shareholders when it holds an annual meeting to elect directors (though some companies combine the annual report and the 10-K into one document). The 10-K includes information such as company history, organizational structure, executive compensation, equity, subsidiaries, and audited financial statements, among other information.
Form 10-KSB: Similar to the SEC Form 10-K, the Form 10-KSB contains crucial information for investors researching potential investments. This is especially true with the companies that file the Form 10-KSB since the stocks of these small companies most often trade as “penny stocks.” Consequently, they do not receive significant coverage by third-party analysts.

Edgar Allen Poe

...Kayla E. Lockaby Research Paper Rough Draft Mrs. Lawson and Mrs. Maddox English IV and History April 22, 2011 Edgar Allan Poe To most people, Edgar Allan Poe was a troubled soul that had many psychological issues. Some people think that his works mimicked his own mental torment and torture; others thought that he was an American writer romantically doomed to failure by events and emotions too great for him to handle. His writings reflect each theory, and his style was very unique and unusual for the time period in which they were written. The artistic liberties and risks that Poe took in his works sparked the beginning of what we call the Romanticism Period. The hardships and tragedies which Edgar Allan Poe faced throughout his life played a big part in influencing his writing, how his writing influenced the period, and how it affected his mental stability (Life 240). Poe was born on January 19, 1809, in Boston, Massachusetts, to David and Elizabeth Poe. He had two siblings, a younger sister named Rosalie and an older brother named Henry. When Poe was just one, his father abandoned his wife and children. At two his mother died of tuberculosis and the children were split up into different homes (Tragedies 240). Poe was taken in by John Allan and his childless wife Frances, giving him his middle name. Having experienced many tragedies at an early age, he, starting at the age of six, developed a great fear of death and this influenced how and what he would later write...

When these titles of the books take over the attention, it is only normal that the main part of Poe’s work should see to be known as nightmares.

In 1849, Poe became engaged to marry the widowed......

He was a criminologist and became the man who changed the Bureau of Investigation to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and remain at his position for 48 years until his death in 1972.

Edgar Allan Poe

...Edgar Allan Poe Essay 9. The mood of “The Cask of Amontillado” is one of rising horror. What descriptive details help produce this mood? “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe, was about a man named Montresor who was seeking revenge on another man named Fortunato. Fortunato had insulted Montresor is some sort of way so he arrived at the carnival with a masterful and evil scheme to get rid of him. Throughout this story there are many events that make you gasp and sit on the edge of your seat. Horror is the mood in this graphic short story. One descriptive detail in the story that is filled of horror was when they arrived at Monstresor’s house and they explored his vaults. It was filled with dead corpses. While I was reading this I felt a little disturbed. If I was the one walking through multiple dead bodies lying on the ground I would feel very uneasy and petrified. This event showed horror. Another example of a horrid scene was when both of the men walked into Monstresor’s crypt. A crypt is usually a place where people are buried and they contain coffins. Fortunato had a little too much to drink so he didn’t exactly notice his unpleasant surroundings. Also, there were human bones on the walls. Lastly, the most horrifying, descriptive scene in this short story was the ending. Montresor wanted revenge on Fortunato so bad that he was willing to take his life. He trapped Fortunato inside the wall and began to place stones over top of him. ......

Edgar Allan Poe

...Final Poe Essay Edgar Allan Poe is one of the best, and unusual horror story writers, but does his conscious lead to his creepy ambition? It seems like he would write like any other horror story writers that just write about any ideas that they can think of or anything that sound like it could make a good story, but Edgar Allan Poe shows his struggles, tragedies, and hardships that he portrays through his stories and poems, and might just seem obscure to us. Edgar Allan Poe is a manic depressive lunatic, or a literary genius. Edgar Allan Poe shows that he is more of a manic depressive lunatic than a literary genius because of how most of his stories involve something scary, and how the protagonist ends up doing really outrageous things. Also the way that he writes his stories and what he makes the protagonist do in his stories, and poems. Edgar Allan Poe incorporates most of his experience, and what he went through than the literary elements, and structure that he uses. In “The Black Cat” it states, “I took from my waistcoat-pocket a pen-knife, opened it, grasped the poor beast by the throat, and deliberately cut one of its eyes from the socket! I blush, I burn, I shudder, while I pen the damnable atrocity.” This shows that all the hardships he went through played a big role in how he wrote his stories. Edgar Allan Poe had many reasons why his stories and poems turned out the way that they did. Another issue that he wrote about in his poems, and stories......

Edgar Allan Poe

...EDGAR ALLAN POE Synopsis Born January 19, 1809, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. American short-story writer, poet, critic, and Editor Edgar Allan Poe's tales of mystery and horror initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction. His The Raven (1845) numbers among the best-known poems in national literature. Early Life With his short stories and poems, Edgar Allan Poe captured the imagination and interest of readers around the world. His creative talents led to the beginning of different literary genres, earning him the nickname "Father of the Detective Story" among other distinctions. His life, however, has become a bit of mystery itself. And the lines between fact and fiction have been blurred substantially since his death. The son of actors, Poe never really knew his parents. His father left the family early on, and his mother passed away when he was only three. Separated from his siblings, Poe went to live with John and Frances Allan, a successful tobacco merchant and his wife, in Richmond, Virginia. He and Frances seemed to form a bond, but he never quite meshed with John. Preferring poetry over profits, Poe reportedly wrote poems on the back of some of Allan's business papers. Money was also an issue between Poe and John Allan. When Poe went to the University of Virginia in 1826, he didn't receive enough funds from Allan to cover all his costs. Poe turned to gambling to cover the difference, but ended up......

Edgar Allan Poe

...Personally, I liked the story The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe because if grasped my attention more then Everyday Use by Alice Walker. In this story the exposition would be during the Carnival in Italy when Montresor runs into Fortunato and offers to share a bottle of Amontillado wine. Montresor offers to share the Amontillado wine because he is seeking revenge against Fortunato and Fortunato seems to be completely oblivious to the fact that he is Montresor’s enemy. The Rising action of the Cask of Amontillado is when Montresor brings Fortunato to his catacombs to taste his Amontillado. During this time Fortunato get a little big intoxicated and not becomes unaware what is happening around him. Montresor claims that he bought a large barrel of Amontillado and doubts if the wine is legit or not. The climax of the story is when Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall of the catacombs and Montresor then ignores the screams of Fortunato for mercy. The falling action of the story is when Fortunato stops screaming, and Montresor only hears the jingling of the bells on his costume when he throws his torch the catacombs. Montresor also is finishing sealing the wall he is making in front Fortunato, so one finds him. The resolution of the Cask of Amontillado is this phrase “In pace requiescat,” (Literature, Page 19) which leads us to believe that Montresor succeeded in his revenge and murder. I picked this piece because it really is suspenseful, and that is what kept my......

Edgar Allan Poe

...For most readers, the name of Edgar Allan Poe has become a byword for horror and fear. Moreover, the images and motifs created by the novelist had an immense influence on the following generations and works of other authors, so that they even became immersed into the popular culture. Poe’s memorable images and quotes became an integral part of the world’s cultural heritage, giving inspiration to the horror movie script writers and novelists. As a result, many fans of the horror genre don’t even rate Poe’s contribution at its true value, taking his efforts for granted. For nearly two centuries so far, Poe has been providing realistic images of morbidity, fear and the horror of life to everyone who is interested in the genre or makes parallels between fiction and certain moments in life. The biography of Edgar Allan Poe is full of mystery which can be explained by his own passion for exaggeration and fantasies, which confused biographers who were trying to learn about his life from his works or his own words. However, most biographers agree that Poe hardly knew his parents and when biographers claim that he was a spoiled child, they mean the family who adopted Edgar. Edgar was born in a family of young actors. His father was an alcohol addict, whose addiction went so far that he even was drunk on the stage. Once he left his wife and kids and nobody saw him ever again. Edgar’s mother fell ill and died when Poe was only a child. That’s how Edgar was adopted by the Allens, the......

Edgar Allan Poe

...1Stephen King, creator of such stories as Carrie and Pet Sematary, stated that the Edgar Allan Poe stories he read as a child gave him the inspiration and instruction he needed to become the writer that he is. 2Poe, as does Stephen King, fills the reader's imagination with the images that he wishes the reader to see, hear, and feel. 3His use of vivid, concrete visual imagery to present both static and dynamic settings and to describe people is part of his technique. 4Poe's short story "The Tell-Tale Heart" is a story about a young man who kills an old man who cares for him, dismembers the corpse, then goes mad when he thinks he hears the old man's heart beating beneath the floor boards under his feet as he sits and discusses the old man's absence with the police. 5In "The Tell-Tale Heart," a careful reader can observe Poe's skillful manipulation of the senses. 1The sense of sight, the primary sense, is particularly susceptible to manipulation. 2In "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe uses the following image to describe a static scene: "His room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness . . ." Poe used the words "black," "pitch," and "thick darkness" not only to show the reader the condition of the old man's room, but also to make the reader feel the darkness." 3"Thick" is a word that is not usually associated with color (darkness), yet in using it, Poe stimulates the reader's sense of feeling as well as his sense of sight. 1Further on in the story, Poe uses a couple of words......

Edgar Allen Poe

...In the story "The Cask of Amontillado," by Edgar Allen Poe, Montressor is not a reliable narrator. Readers are not supposed to trust Montressor’s account of events, because he demonstrates that the information he provides about himself and what happens in the story is to be suspected. One reason Montressor’s account of events is not to be trusted is that his view is likely to be bias, as he is the one who commits the murder of Fortunato. Another reason Montressor’s reccollection of events is not to be trusted, is because 50 years have passed since he committed the murder. Montressor’s view of the events between himself and Fortunato are bias. Montressor feels he is justified in the murder because Fortunato has injured him many times, however Montressor never gives the reader a specific example of how he has injured him. The bias in Montressor’s story makes his whole account of events unreliable because Montressor could have easily made up the Fortunato has injured him many times, without input from a third party, readers can not know if Montressor is being truthful or not. The truth may also have been skewed because so much time has passed since the events actually unfolded. Readers are told that 50 years has gone by since Montressor murdered Forunato. Over the 50 years it is likely that Montressor justified his actions in his own mind, more and more, as time passed, Montressor also has likely forgotten exactly how the events unfolded, and has modified his......

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle Analysis

...2015 The Story of Edgar Sawtelle: Connections Analysis The main character in David Wroblewski’s novel, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, is marked for greatness in a way that many would not realize. Often, physical marks or imperfections are an author’s way of letting their readers know that a character is important. For Edgar Sawtelle, this imperfection is the fact that he is unable to speak. Although on the outside there doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with Edgar, the readers understand that there is something distinctly different about him. Due to his “disability”, Edgar sees more, understands more, and perceives more than almost all of the other characters. Claude himself describes Edgar’s watchful gaze when Edgar discovers the relationship between Claude and his mother. Claude describes Edgar as “a boy that spends his days watching”, (Wroblewski 249) and this watching is exactly what allows Edgar to see things that others can’t. He knows that Claude is hiding something after Gar’s death, even though Trudy doesn’t realize it. Edgar knows early on that something is wrong with the way Claude acts. Unfortunately, this inability to speak was also the reason for many conflicts, like when Edgar was unable to speak into the phone while Gar was dying on the floor of the barn. This lack of spoken communication also gives Edgar control over who can understand what he is “saying”. Such as when Glen Papineau was interrogating him about his father’s death. Edgar was able to keep......

Edgar Sia Ii

...Mr. Edgar Sia II The Man Behind Mang Inasal It started in 2003 when smalltown lad Edgar Sia II, then a 26-year-old college dropout, grabbed a tiny spot in the parking lot of a mall, the site of an upcoming food hall. As a frequent customer of McDonald's and KFC, Sia knew what he'd been missing in the fast-food scene: Filipino-style street fare served in a restaurant-type setting. Before long customers were lining up outside Mang Inasal as word spread quickly through Iloilo City about Sia's new eatery. Its charcoal-grilled chicken served with rice wrapped in a banana leaf wasn't like anything on the menus ofMcDonald's, KFC or even Jollibee, the local burger chain. The flavors were distinctively Filipino, as was the earthy décor with wooden tables, handmade paper lamps and walls painted in orange, green and yellow. "We really wanted to create a new category in this business, one that wasn't influenced by American food," says Sia, 34, who's often referred to by his nickname, Injap. It's a winning recipe; Mang Inasal's affordable concoctions aimed at Filipino taste buds has made it the country's third-largest fastfood chain after Jollibee and Chowking, both owned by fellow lister Tony Tan Caktiong, whose expanding food empire has made him a billionaire. Sia's eight-year-old barbecue chain, with 380 outlets, has even overtaken McDonald's. And it has lately put him on the road to riches. Last October Jollibee, in a nod to its upstart rival, scooped up 70% of Mang Inasal for......
