William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon in Warwickshire, England on April 23, 1564. His mother, Mary Arden, had come from a fairly wealthy family. His father, John, was a glove maker and a leather merchant by trade. He also held the prestigious position of town bailiff in their community. In all, the Shakespeares had eight children, William being the third of these children and the first son. Three of William’s brothers and sisters died during childhood.

Reportedly, Shakespeare did not have an extensive education. He did attend Stratford Grammar School, a school for the sons of prominent citizens, although it appears his family may not have paid for his education due to his father’s status as a high-ranking town official. While it is not certain, it is believed that Shakespeare attended this school from age 7 to 14. The time he spent at this grammar school is assumed to be the only education he received, yet the literary quality of his works suggests a more advanced education. This matter has contributed to the debate concerning the authorship of his works.

On November 28, 1582, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, a farmer’s daughter. ■ A) Anne was twenty-six years old when they married and was pregnant at the time. William was only eighteen. ■ B) Their marriage produced three children. ■ C) Shakespeare apparently abandoned his family and disappeared from 1585 to 1592. ■ D) No records of Shakespeare exist from this period of his life, and they are usually referred to as “the lost years.” Some have speculated that he either became a schoolteacher, a butcher’s apprentice, or was running from the law.

Shakespeare reappeared in London where he arrived with the goal of becoming an actor and playwright. Evidently, Shakespeare garnered envy for his talent early on. He even found a sponsor to help pay for his services. Shakespeare’s work in the theaters came to a halt, however, when the theaters of London closed down due to the plague in January of 1593. This closing inspired Shakespeare and his company to move to the Globe Theater in the Bankside district, across the river from London’s city limits.

Shakespeare’s company, originally called “Lord Chamberlain’s Men,” changed their name to “The King’s Men” after King James took over the throne in 1603. Because Shakespeare worked and performed for royalty, his company became the biggest and most famous acting company in the area. Consequently, Shakespeare became quite well-to-do as a director, writer, actor, and stockholder in The King’s Men.

During his time, Shakespeare published and sold his plays in octavo editions. Also known as “penny copies,” these were sold to the more literate members of his audience. It is noted that a

playwright had never before enjoyed sufficient acclaim as to see his works published and sold as popular literature in the midst of his career. His 37 plays span the genres of tragedy, comedy, and history. While Shakespeare could not be considered wealthy by London standards, his success did allow him to purchase New House and retire in comfort in Stratford in 1611. e made a will on March 25, 1616, and died, as the legend has it, on his birthday, April 23, 516. He was buried at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford on April 25th.

Shakespeare wrote his own epitaph to avoid the common tendency at the time of a person’s gave being dug up after several years to accommodate another body.

“Good Friends, for Jesus’ sake forbear,

To dig the bones enclosed here!

Blest be the man that spares these stones,

And curst be he that moves my bones.”

To this day, no one has disturbed Shakespeare’s grave.

In 1623, two working companions of Shakespeare from the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, John Heminges and Henry Condell, printed the First Folio edition of his Collected Works, half of which were previously unpublished. The First Folio also contained Shakespeare’s sonnets. Many argue that William Shakespeare’s legacy is a body of work that will never again be paralleled in Western civilization. His words have endured for 400 years and still reach across the centuries as powerfully as ever.

Types Of Memory

[1] As mentioned previously, one of the most important characteristics of a computer is its           capability of storing information in its memory long enough to process it. Not all computers      have the same type of memory. In this section, three types of memory will be discussed; core       memory, semiconductor memory (or chip), and bubble memory.

[2] The memory of the first computers was made up of a kind of grid of fine vertical and horizontal       wires. At each intersection where the wires crossed, there was a small ferrite ring called a core       (hence the name “core memory”) which was capable of being either magnetized or      demagnetized. Every intersection had its unique address; consequently, when an electrical            current was passed through the wires, the magnetized as well as the unmagnetized cores were   identified by their respective addresses. Each core represented a binary digit of either 0 or 1,             depending on its state. Early computers had a capacity of around 80,000 bits; whereas now, it is     not surprising to hear about computers with a memory capacity of millions of bits. This has been     made possible by the advent of transistors and by the advances in the manufacture of      miniaturized circuitry. As the result, mainframes have been reduced in both size and cost.       Throughout the 19508, 1960s and up to the mid-19708, core memory dominated the market.

[3] In the 1970s, there was a further development which revolutionized the computer field. This was       the ability to etch thousands of integrated circuits onto a tiny piece (chip) of silicon, which is a          non-metallic element with semiconductor characteristics. Chips have thousands of identical       circuits, each one capable of storing one bit. Because of the very small size of the chip, and        consequently of the circuits etched on it, electrical signals do not have to travel far; hence, they          are transmitted faster. Moreover, the size of the components containing the circuitry can be   considerably reduced, a step which has led to the introduction of both minis and micros. As a   result, computers have become smaller, faster, and cheaper. There is one problem with     semiconductor memory, however, when power is removed, information in the memory is lost ­      unlike core memory, which is capable of retaining information during a power failure.           

[4] Another development in the field of computer memories is bubble memory. The concept        consists of creating a thin film of metallic alloys over the memory board. When this film is    magnetized, it produces magnetic bubbles, the presence, or absence of which represents one bit       of information. These bubbles are extremely tiny, about 0.1 micrometer in diameter. Therefore,           a magnetic bubble memory can store information at a greater density than existing memories,      which makes it suitable for micros. Bubble memories are not expensive, consume little power,   are small in size, and are highly reliable. There is probably a lot more to learn about them, and    research in this field continues.

1. The most important function of a computer is to hold information in its memory in order to process it.

2. Minicomputers, microcomputers, and mainframes all have the same kind of memory.

3. Semiconductor memory was developed before core memory and after bubble memory.

4. Core memory uses small metal rings which can be magnetized or unmagnified.

5. The state of the core can be represented by either 0 or 1.

6. Early computer memories had less storage capacity than newer ones.

7. A transistor and a chip are the same kind of device.

8. The development of chips made it possible (or minicomputers and microcomputers) to be invented.

9. Bubble memory is smaller than a chip.

10. Bubble memory doesn’t have very many advantages.

Recent letters in your columns about insurance companies prompt me to cite this example. Some months ago a car (1) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦to my daughter was (2) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦from outside her house in Birmingham.

As a doctor in daily need of her car, she was surprised when her insurers said she would have to wait six weeks for (3) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ .

To her annoyance they managed, by all kinds of procrastination, to drag this out to three months; and then only after a (4) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦of lengthy, rather unpleasant phone calls would they pay a penny.

My daughter was then (5) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦to find that there would be no refund, or no extension of the period of insurance, to cover the three months lost.      A full premium (no (6) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦sum for (7) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦cover in Birmingham), had to be paid for a quarter of a year, when no          cover was (8) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦at all.

Surely this is another example of the way insurance companies (9) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦money, perhaps legally but to my mind immorally, which gives them such a bad image. If any of your readers know of a way (10) â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ this difficulty, I would welcome their advice.

Passage A

As Christmas evolved in the United States, new customs were adopted and many old ones were reworked. The legend of Santa Claus, for example, had origins in Europe and was brought by Dutch settlers to New York in the early 18th century. Traditionally, Santa Claus – from the Dutch Sinter Klaas – was depicted as a tall, dignified, religious figure riding a white horse through the air. Known as Saint Nicholas in Germany, he was usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. In North America he eventually developed into a fat, jolly old gentleman who had neither the religious attributes of Saint Nicholas nor the strict disciplinarian character of Black Peter.

Santa’s transformation began in 1823, when a New York newspaper published the poem A Visit from Saint Nicholas, which Clement Clark Moore had written to amuse his daughter. The poem introduced many Americans to the story of a kindly saint who flew over housetops in a reindeer-drawn sleigh. Portraits and drawings of Santa Claus by American illustrator Thomas Nast further strengthened the legend during the second half of the 19th century. Living at the North Pole and assisted by elves, the modern Santa produced and delivered toys to all good children. By the late 19th century he had become such a prominent figure of American folklore that in 1897, when Virginia O’Hanlon wrote to the New York Sun newspaper asking if Santa was real, she received a direct answer: “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”.
