Daisy Duck

Daisy Duck is a cartoon character created in 1940 by Walt Disney Studios as the girlfriend of Donald Duck. Daisy is an anthropomorphic white duck, but has large eyelashes and ruffled tail feathers to suggest a skirt, she is seen wearing a hair bow and heeled shoes. Daisy shows a strong affinity towards Donald, although she is characterized as being more sophisticated than him, going on dates with Gladstone Gander when she becomes frustrated with Donald's immaturity. Daisy was introduced in the short film Mr. Duck Steps Out and was incorporated into Donald's comic stories several months later, she appeared in 11 short films between 1940 and 1954, far in Mickey's Christmas Carol and Fantasia 2000. In these roles, Daisy was always a supporting character, with the exception of Donald's Dilemma. Daisy has received more screen time in television, making regular appearances in Quack Pack, Mickey Mouse Works, Disney's House of Mouse, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Mickey Mouse, Mickey and the Roadster Racers.

Daisy has appeared in several direct-to-video films such as Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, The Three Musketeers, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. Daisy is the aunt of April and June, three young girl ducks who bear resemblance to Huey and Louie. Daisy is a close friend of Clarabelle Cow and Clara Cluck in the comics and Minnie Mouse's best friend. Since her early appearances, Daisy is attracted to Donald and devoted to him in the same way he is devoted to her; this is most seen in Donald's Dilemma as Daisy is to the point of suicide after Donald forgets her. Despite this, she's shown to have her boyfriend wrapped around her finger and is shown to keep him in line whenever his anger starts to boil. Besides her love for Donald, Daisy is shown to be more sophisticated and intelligent than him; this causes her to be frustrated with his immaturity, their relationship has an off-again, on-again nature as a result in the comic books. When Daisy is fighting with Donald or temporarily breaks up with him, she goes on dates with Donald's rival Gladstone Gander instead.

In Cured Duck Daisy gives Donald an ultimatum regarding his temper but reforms in Donald's Dilemma. Daisy herself sometimes exhibits a temper. In the Mouse Works/House of Mouse cartoons, she was sometimes portrayed as intrusive and overly talkative, she would tag along on trips where she was not wanted. In House of Mouse, Daisy was waiting for her ″Big Break″, taking any and every opportunity to perform a number of talent acts on stage. Daisy was separated from Donald in that her quest for fame was not as prominent, relied less on jealousy than eagerness. Daisy is a white duck with legs, she has indigo eyeshadow, long distinct eyelashes and ruffled feathers around her lowest region to suggest a skirt. She's seen sporting a blouse with puffed short sleeves and a v-neckline, she wears a matching bow, heeled shoes and a single bangle on her wrist. The colors of her clothes change often, but her signature colors are purple and pink; the creators of the television series Quack Pack, in keeping with their modernization theme, reworked Daisy's character into a career-oriented woman and thus gave her a different appearance to match.

While keeping with the purple and pink motif, Daisy wore long dresses with high-heeled shoes and instead of wearing her trademark hair bow, the feathers atop her head got the same treatment as her tail feathers had before. House of Mouse got her a blue and purple employee uniform, with a blue bow, a long ponytail. In Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Daisy regained her purple blouse with shoes, she wears a gold bangle and has a short ponytail, similar to the longer one seen in House of Mouse. Daisy Duck has been voiced by several different voice actors over the years, yet by far the most extensive work has been done by Tress MacNeille, who took on the role in 1999. Clarence Nash voiced Daisy in her debut in The Nifty Nineties. In both shorts, Nash voiced Daisy in a similar'duck-like' voice as Donald's. Starting with Donald's Crime, Gloria Blondell took over vocal duties on the character, giving her a more "normal" female human voice. Blondell would voice Daisy in a further four shorts between 1945 and 1947, with her last being Donald's Dilemma.

For Donald's Dream Voice, actress Ruth Clifford, best known as the voice of Minnie Mouse in the late-1940s / early-1950s, voiced Daisy. Blondell returned to the role one final time in Crazy Over Daisy. Vivi Janiss voiced the character in Donald's Diary, while renowned voice actress June Foray voiced her in her final classic shorts appearance, the educational Donald Duck short How to Have an Accident at Work. Voice actress Janet Waldo, best known as the voice of Judy Jetson, voiced Daisy in the Disneyland Records album An Adaptation of Dickens' Christmas Carol, Performed by The Walt Disney Players. In 1983 Daisy was voiced by Patricia Parris in Mickey's Christmas Carol. Daisy was voiced by Kath Soucie in Down and Out with Donald Duck and throughout her first regular television series Quack Pack. In 1998 Daisy was voiced by Diane Michelle in the anthology film The Spirit of Mickey. Michelle alternated in the role with Tress MacNeille for Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas and Mi

In a debate over the coming year's budget in December 2015, Jallow expressed his concerns over the Gambia's "ill economy". In particular, he expressed concerns over trade deficit.

He noted that the government "will have to engage in agricultural diversification" and that it ought to repair its relations with the European Union to regain access to its foreign aid. He concluded that the Gambia will "continue to face problems if we do not do some of these adjustments."He criticised Jammeh's government on a number of issues throughout 2016.

Duesenberg

Duesenberg Motors Company was an American manufacturer of race cars and high-end luxury automobiles. It was founded by brothers August and Frederick Duesenberg in 1913 in Saint Paul, where they built engines and race cars; the brothers moved their operations to Elizabeth, New Jersey, in 1916 to manufacture engines for World War I. In 1919, when their government contracts were cancelled, they moved to Indianapolis, home of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, established the Duesenberg Automobile and Motors Company, Inc.. In late 1926, E. L. Cord added Duesenberg to his Auburn Automobile Company. With the market for expensive luxury cars undercut by the Great Depression, Duesenberg folded in 1937. In 1913, German-American brothers Fred and Augie Duesenberg founded Duesenberg Motors Company, Inc. on University Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota, to build engines and race cars; the brothers built many experimental cars. Duesenberg cars were considered some of the best cars of the time, were built by hand. In 1914, Eddie Rickenbacker drove a "Duesy" to finish in 10th place at the Indianapolis 500, Duesenberg won the race in 1922, 1924, 1925, 1927.

The fledgling company sidestepped into aviation engine manufacturing when Colonel R. C. Bolling and his commission acquired a license to produce the Bugatti U-16 for the U. S. Army Air Service; the end of World War I stopped this project before it could mature. In 1921, Duesenberg provided the pace car for the Indy 500, driven by Fred Duesenberg. In 1921, Jimmy Murphy became the first American to win the French Grand Prix when he drove a Duesenberg to victory at Le Mans. According to archives of The Des Moines Register, the first Duesenbergs were built at 915 Grand Ave in Des Moines, Iowa. In the 1970s, Virgil Exner tried to revive Duesenberg, but due to his early death, only concept cars were made. At the end of World War I, they ceased building aviation and marine engines in Elizabeth, New Jersey, at the corner of Newark Avenue and North Avenue. In 1919 the Duesenberg brothers sold their Minnesota and New Jersey factories to John Willys and moved to a new headquarters and factory in Indianapolis, where the "Duesenberg Automobile and Motors Company, Inc." was established in 1920 to begin production of passenger cars.

The plant was located on a 17-acre site on West Washington street at Harding street until 1937, adjacent to the Overland Automobile factory. Although the Duesenberg brothers were world-class engineers, they were neither good businessmen nor administrators; this had the Duesenberg Straight-8 engine, the first "mass-produced" straight eight engine in the U. S, it was an advanced and expensive automobile, offering features such as single overhead camshafts, four-valve cylinder heads, the first four-wheel hydraulic brakes offered on a passenger car anywhere. The Model A was a smaller vehicle than the competition, it was among the the fastest cars of its time. Among the celebrities who purchased this model were Rudolph Valentino; the model experienced various delays going from prototype to production. Deliveries to dealers did not start until December 1921. Sales lagged and the goal of building 100 Duesenbergs each month proved far too high, as the Indianapolis plant struggled to roll out one a day. In 1922 no more than 150 cars were manufactured, only 650 Model As were sold over a period of six years.

1922 Model A specifications Winning races did not translate into financial success either, although that winning reputation would attract new investors, who supplied the cash flow to prop up the production facility. The brothers continued to create excellent engines for cars, a few planes but only as employees of various capitalist investors who bought the rights to their famous family name; the firm had acquired a considerable aura of prestige when in October 1919, Fred signed over the rights to his name and drawings for a passenger car to a pair of promoters, Newton E. Van Zandt and Luther M. Rankin. On March 8, 1920, these men became president and vice president of the "Duesenberg Automobile and Motors Corporation of Indianapolis". Fred was chief engineer and Augie his assistant, both were salaried as employees. Van Zandt quit after a year, business went from bad to worse in 1923. In 1924 the company went into receivership. In 1925, the firm's name was changed to "Duesenberg Motors Corporation" and Fred assumed the title of president.

Fred and August struggled to keep the company, but to no avail, as they weren't able to raise enough capital. Model X Duesenbergs are rare, it was a sportier version of the model A with a heavier and longer chassis and 100 hp engine that enabled it to reach 100 mph. The most notable differences between the A and X were that the latter had hypoid differentials and all its valves were on one side; this braking system could have earned him a fortune. According to Randy Ema, the top Duesenberg authority in the United States, only 13 were built, they fit in between the Duesenberg Model A and the famous J. E. L. Cord bought the company on October 26, 1925, for the brothers' engineering skills and the
