Dolley Madison

Dolley Todd Madison was the wife of James Madison, President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. She was noted for holding Washington social functions in which she invited members of both political parties spearheading the concept of bipartisan cooperation, albeit before that term was in use, in the United States. While founders such as Thomas Jefferson would only meet with members of one party at a time, politics could be a violent affair resulting in physical altercations and duels, Madison helped to create the idea that members of each party could amicably socialize and negotiate with each other without resulting in violence. By innovating political institutions as the wife of James Madison, Dolley Madison did much to define the role of the President's spouse, known only much by the title First Lady—a function she had sometimes performed earlier for the widowed Thomas Jefferson. Dolley helped to furnish the newly constructed White House; when the British set fire to it in 1814, she was credited with saving the classic portrait of George Washington.

In widowhood, she lived in poverty relieved by the sale of her late husband's papers. The first girl in her family, Dolley Payne was born on May 20, 1768, in the Quaker settlement of New Garden, North Carolina, in Guilford County, to Mary Coles Payne and John Payne Jr. both Virginians who had moved to North Carolina in 1765. Mary Coles, a Quaker, had married John Payne, a non-Quaker, in 1761. Three years he applied and was admitted to the Quaker Monthly Meeting in Hanover County, where Coles' parents lived, he became a fervent follower and they reared their children in the Quaker faith. In 1769, the Paynes had returned to Virginia and young Dolley grew up at her parents' plantation in rural eastern Virginia and became attached to her mother's family, she had three sisters and four brothers. In 1783, following the American Revolutionary War, John Payne emancipated his slaves, as did numerous slaveholders in the Upper South. Some, like Payne, were Quakers. From 1782 to 1810, the proportion of free blacks to the total black population in Virginia increased from less than one percent to 7.2 percent, more than 30,000 blacks were free.

When Dolley was 15, Payne moved his family to Philadelphia, where he went into business as a starch merchant, but the business had failed by 1791. This was seen as a "weakness" at his Quaker meetings, he died in October 1792 and Mary Payne made ends meet by opening a boardinghouse, but the next year she took her two youngest children and John, moved to western Virginia to live with her daughter Lucy and her new husband, George Steptoe Washington, a nephew of George Washington. In January 1790, Dolley Payne had married a Quaker lawyer in Philadelphia, they had two sons, John Payne and William Temple. After Mary Payne left Philadelphia in 1793, Dolley's sister Anna Payne moved in with them to help with the children. In August 1793, a yellow fever epidemic broke out in Philadelphia, killing 5,019 people in four months. Dolley was hit hard, as her husband, son William, mother-in-law, father-in-law all died. In addition to her grief, Dolley experienced, as many women did, the compounding effects of coverture law – the legal system that limited women's ability to own property and wages – to her time of mourning.

While undergoing the loss of much of her family, she had to take care of her surviving son without the monetary support of a husband and in the weakened financial position of being female under the coverture system. While her husband had left her money in his will, only men could be the executor of that money and, as such, her husband's brother was the executor. Like many women, Dolley experienced this injustice as her brother-in-law withheld the funds that her husband had left to her, so she had to sue him for the $19 she was owed. Dolley's loss of her early family, the accumulating expenses of both caring for her child and paying for the funerals of lost relatives, highlights the weight of the difficulties many women faced during times of great grief and mourning. Despite Dolley's weakened position after the death of most of her male relatives, she was still considered a beautiful woman and was living in the temporary capital of the United States, Philadelphia. While her mother went to live with another married daughter, Dolley caught the eye of James Madison, who represented Virginia in the U.

S. House of Representatives. While remarrying would have been crucial for her, as keeping herself and her child that a woman could bring in would have been challenging, it is reported that she did seem to genuinely care for James; some sources state that Aaron Burr, a longtime friend of Madison's since their student days at the College of New Jersey, stayed at a rooming house where Dolley resided, it was Aaron's idea to introduce the two. In May 1794, Burr made the formal introduction between the young widow and Madison, who at 43 was a longstanding bachelor 17 years her senior. A brisk courtship followed and, by August, Dolley accepted his marriage proposal; as he was not a Quaker, she was expelled from the Society of Friends for marrying outside her faith, after which Dolley began attending Episcopal services. Despite her Quaker upbringing, there is no evidence, they were married on September 15

Allan Lamport

Allan Austin Lamport, was mayor of Toronto, Canada, from 1952 to 1954. Known as "Lampy", his most notable achievement was his opposition to Toronto's Blue laws which banned any activities on Sundays. Lamport fought to allow professional sporting activities on Sundays, he won the 1954 election, but resigned after six months to become vice-chairman of the newly formed Toronto Transit Commission. Lamport returned to City Council and made headlines for his opposition to Yorkville's hippies in the late 1960s, he first sat on Toronto City Council in 1937. A licensed pilot, he urged the city to build airports in Malton, Ontario; these projects were approved and became the Toronto Island Airport and what is now Pearson International Airport. He advocated the construction of the Mount Pleasant Road extension connecting it to Jarvis Street in order to create a north-south alternative to Yonge Street. From 1937 to 1943 he was an Ontario Liberal Party Member of Provincial Parliament for the Toronto riding of St. David.

He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II and once rose in the legislature to denounce Henry Ford for his lack of support for the Canadian war effort, calling him a "black-hearted American Quisling". As a result, he was transferred by the RCAF to the east coast and was unable to carry out his political duties contributing his electoral defeat in the 1943 provincial election, he returned to city council in 1946 and campaigned for the provincial government of George Drew to permit the opening of cocktail bars in Toronto. In 1947, the legislature approved the opening of bars in cities with more than 100,000 people. In 1949 he was elected to the Board of Control for the first time. In 1950, Lamport spearheaded a municipal plebiscite; until playing fields and swings were padlocked on the Lord's Day. He was won on his second attempt the next year; as mayor, Lamport encouraged the construction of Toronto's subway system which would be Canada's first when it opened in 1954. He advocated the creation of Regent Park, Canada's first large scale public housing project.

Premier Leslie Frost considered Lamport for the position of Chairman of the newly created Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto but he was not interested. Lamport resigned as mayor in 1954 to serve on the Toronto Transit Commission first as vice-chairman and as chairman from 1955 to 1959 and recommended and won approval for the construction of the Bloor-Danforth subway line. Following a political scandal over control of the TTC, he clashed with Metro Chairman Fred Gardiner, was nearly ousted from the TTC. In 1960, he was defeated by Nathan Phillips. In 1964, he was defeated by Phil Givens, he returned to City Council again in 1966 as a Controller, as an alderman when the Board of Control was abolished. He famously opposed the hippies who populated the neighbourhood of Yorkville pledging to drive them out of Toronto and encouraging police action against them and urged that the neighbourhood be demolished and replaced by a shopping mall, he clashed with David DePoe, unofficial spokesperson for the Yorkville hippies opposing DePoe's bid to address city council.

The confrontation resulted in Lamport ordering police to remove the hippies from the city council chamber This conflict was documented in the National Film Board of Canada films Flowers on a One Way Street and Christopher's Movie Matinée. In 1994, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada. Lamport Stadium in Toronto and the Allan A. Lamport Regatta Course on Toronto Island are named in his honour, his funeral was arranged through Ralph Day Funeral Home and services were held at St. Paul's Anglican Church and he is buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto. Lamport was known as Metro's Goldwyn Mayor, a take on movie mogul Sam Goldwyn because both of them were known for their malapropisms, he was quoted on many subjects. For example, on the subject of progress he said "All this progress is marvellous... now if only it would stop." On the future, he said "It's hard to make predictions - about the future." On achieving the impossible, he said "It's like pushing a car uphill with a rope." Some of his quotes were related to political life.

On being Mayor of Toronto, he said "Being Mayor of Toronto is like being a Prime Minister - without a cabinet or a majority." He once commented on Metro Chairman Fred Gardiner: "Trailing Fred Gardiner is like tracking a bleeding elephant through a fresh fall of snow." "Allan Lamport". Find a Grave.

Curriculum vitae circa Faculty website


Pianoman is the alias of dance music producer James Sammon from Bradford, West Yorkshire who got to number 6 in the UK Singles Chart with the hit single "Blurred" in June 1996. His follow-up to "Blurred" released on 3 Beat Records was from a Belinda Carlisle sample of "Live Your Life Be Free", entitled "Party People" which narrowly missed a place in the UK Top 40, peaking at number 43. Sammon used the assistance of music production engineers for the majority of the tracks that he produced; as well as his own commercial releases and remixes, he has worked and recorded/remixed for musicians such as Ian Brown, Craig David and Donna Air. Pianoman has had many other guises, the most successful being Bass Boyz, signed to Polydor and reached number 74 in September 1996 with "Gunz and Pianos"; the name Pianoman was first popularized by the Billy Joel song "Piano Man", but this was not the reason for Sammon's use of the name, due to the many records he released during the 1990s that were dance music piano anthems, including "That Whitney Tune" featuring samples from "I Wanna Dance with Somebody".

This would lead to the use of that name for his future releases, become his best known moniker. Although known for the commercial dance sound, he has produced tracks and released vinyl in many dance styles, from drum and bass, garage, 2-step, house and R&B, his first release was The Happy Hardcore EP billed as DJ Sammon, the name he took to using during his ten-year stint on pirate radio. In his twenties, Sammon began on one of Yorkshire's first pirates radio stations, the Bradford based station Paradise City Radio, worked at several others, including Dream 107.6 FM. Since 2006, Sammon along with his writing and producing partner Alan Hinton has written and remixed tracks under a variety of aliases covering different genres of dance music including bassline, hardcore and funky house; as of 2008, he was signed to Ministry of Sound in the UK under the 2tyme and Service Crew alias a bassline act and co-writing original material such as "Missing You", "Ain't Your Sweet Thing", "So Hot" and "Tease Me Please Me".

Other names used by Sammon to produce bassline include Serious Business. Alongside his partner Alan Hinton, they are signed as Phonik to AATW Records with a track called "Something Special" featuring Sally Jaxx on vocals. Additional members of Phonik include Ben Trengrove. Sammon has his own publishing company called Blurred Music, administered by Bucks Music Group and a record label called Salford Central Records.

Jonathan Reis

Jonathan Reis is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a striker and a free agent after leaving Albirex Niigata. Born in Contagem, Minas Gerais, Reis started out at Atlético Mineiro’s Academy. In October 2006, he went on trial at Eredivisie side PSV Ajax. After the trial, it was announced two months that PSV Eindhoven signed Reis on a five–year contract. However, the move will not take effect until July 2007, as he wasn't eighteen at the time of signing for the club, it was revealed that the club did not pay the transfer fee to sign Reis. Ahead of the 2007–08 season, Reis was given a number nineteen shirt, he was mentioned by Manager Ronald Koeman about using him in the first team in the 2007–08 season before leaving in October 2007. Reis made his PSV Eindhoven debut in the Johan Cruyff Shield against Ajax on 11 August 2007, where he started the match before coming off in the 73rd minutes for Género Zeefuik, in a 1–0 loss. Eight days on 19 August 2007, Reis set up a goal for Ibrahim Afellay, in a 2–0 win over Heracles Almelo.

He made his UEFA Champions League debut on 12 December 2007, coming on as a late substitute, in a 1–0 loss against Inter Milan. However, he spent the rest of the sidelined, due to lack of first team opportunities. Ahead of the 2008–09 season, Reis suffered a foot injury, causing him to miss PSV Eindhoven's pre-season tour. However, PSV coach Huub Stevens, furious over this'unprofessional attitude', relegated him to the reserve squad. Stevens was dismayed by the bad influence of Reis' agent Vlado Lemić. After receiving more disciplinary action for returning too late from a stay in Brazil where he attended his grandmother's funeral, his career at PSV looked over. Fellow Dutch league teams Roda JC and FC Utrecht as well as Portuguese side Vitóia Setúbal showed interest, but Reis stayed at PSV. However, in January 2009 Reis returned to Brazil by joining Tupi for the rest of the season. In the 2009–10 season, Reis was given a first team chance following a new management of trainer Fred Rutten after he made some impressive pre-season performance.

Reis made his first appearance of the 2009–10 season came on 27 August 2009, where he came on as a late substitute, in a 1–0 win over Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv. It wasn't until on 12 September 2009 when he made his first league appearance in over a year, coming on as a late substitute, in a 3–0 win over Roda JC. On 17 September 2009, in the Europa league group K match at Sparta Prague, Reis came on as substitute in the 64th minutes and scored twice, in a 2–1 win, salvaging a point and becoming an unlikely hero. On 23 September 2009, Reis plays his first full match for PSV in the 2–1 Dutch Cup win against first division side De Graafschap, he added three goals throughout October, scoring against Copenhagen, N. E. C. and Roda JC. He added three more goals between 27 November 2009 and 6 December 2009, scoring twice in the league and once in the UEFA Europa League. Since returning to the first team, Reis established himself in the starting eleven at the striker position. On 24 January 2010, his contract was terminated after he tested positive for a banned substance and subsequently refused the club's offer of help to treat drug addiction.

It was reported that in the case of Reis signing for another club, PSV would file a lawsuit against the player to try to get back some of the money the club had invested in him. Up until his release, Reis made twenty scoring eight times in all competitions. Since his release by PSV Eindhoven, Reis spent time at rehab in Brazil for several months. Over the summer, the club were determined to re–sign him. On 17 July 2010, Reis re–signed for PSV Eindhoven for the second time, signing a one–year contract, with an option of extending the contract into a three-year deal. In the 2010–11 season, Reis’ first month return saw him out of the first team, as he was not selected in the starting eleven. Instead, he spent his first month return with the club's reserve; the following month, on 16 September 2010, Reis played his first match since re–joining the club, in a UEFA Europa League match against Sampdoria, coming on as a late substitute, in a 1–1 draw. After losing his place over driving under the influence of alcohol, he returned to the first team on 3 October 2010 against VVV-Venlo, scoring twice, in a 3–0 win.

This was followed up by scoring against Willem Debreceni and Vitesse. Reis netted a hat-trick against Feyenoord in a 10–0 victory on 24 October 2010, his goal scoring form led suggestion from Piet de Visser that he could earn a place for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil if only he continues to be clean. Due to his goalscoring forms, many people in Eindhoven thought the natural heir to Romário and Ronaldo's momentous heritage had arrived. However, in a 2–1 win over FC Utrecht on 7 November 2010, Reis was sent–off mid-way through the first half after elbowing Alje Schut; as a result, he served a two match suspension. Things got bad to worse for Reis when he suffered a serious knee injury during a 3–1 win over Roda JC on 19 December 2010, it was announced and never played again. In response to the news, Reis received about 1400 messages from PSV supporters for positive support. Up until his knee injury, he went on to make fifteen appearances and scoring ten times in all competitions, he spent the rest of the season and having operation on his knee injury.

Throughout the 2010–11 season, his contract with PSV ran out despite PSV planning to offer Reis a one-year extension to his expiring deal, but was plagued due to fitness
