Groucho Marx

Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx was an American comedian, stage, film and television star. A master of quick wit, he is considered one of America's greatest comedians, he made 13 feature films with his siblings the Marx Brothers. He had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show You Bet Your Life, his distinctive appearance, carried over from his days in vaudeville, included quirks such as an exaggerated stooped posture, cigar, a thick greasepaint mustache and eyebrows. These exaggerated features resulted in the creation of one of the most recognizable and ubiquitous novelty disguises, known as Groucho glasses: a one-piece mask consisting of horn-rimmed glasses, a large plastic nose, bushy eyebrows and mustache. Julius Marx was born on October 1890, in Manhattan, New York. Marx stated that he was born in a room above a butcher's shop on East 78th Street, "Between Lexington & 3rd", as he told Dick Cavett in a 1969 television interview; the Marx children grew up on East 93rd Street off Lexington Avenue in a neighborhood now known as Carnegie Hill on the Upper East Side of the borough of Manhattan.

The turn-of-the-century building that his brother Harpo in his memoir Harpo Speaks called "the first real home they knew", was populated with European immigrants artisans. Just across the street were the oldest brownstones in the area, owned by people such as the well-connected Loew Brothers and William Orth; the Marx family lived there "for about 14 years", Groucho told Cavett. Marx's family was Jewish, his mother was Miene "Minnie" Schoenberg, whose family came from Dornum in northern Germany when she was 16 years old. His father was Simon "Sam" Marx, who changed his name from Marrix, was called "Frenchie" by his sons throughout his life, because he and his family came from Alsace in France. Minnie's brother was Al Schoenberg, who shortened his name to Al Shean when he went into show business as half of Gallagher and Shean, a noted vaudeville act of the early 20th century. According to Marx, when Shean visited, he would throw the local waifs a few coins so that when he knocked at the door he would be surrounded by adoring fans.

Marx and his brothers respected his opinions and asked him on several occasions to write some material for them. Minnie Marx did not have an entertainment industry career but had intense ambition for her sons to go on the stage like their uncle. While pushing her eldest son Leonard in piano lessons, she found that Julius had a pleasant soprano voice and the ability to remain on key. Julius's early career goal was to become a doctor, but the family's need for income forced him out of school at the age of twelve. By that time, young Julius had become a voracious reader fond of Horatio Alger. Marx would continue to overcome his lack of formal education by becoming well-read. After a few stabs at entry-level office work and jobs suitable for adolescents, Julius took to the stage as a boy singer with the Gene Leroy Trio, debuting at the Ramona Theatre in Grand Rapids, MI, on July 16, 1905. Marx reputedly claimed that he was "hopelessly average" as a vaudevillian, but this was typical Marx, wisecracking in his true form.

By 1909, Minnie Marx had assembled her sons into an undistinguished vaudeville singing group billed as "The Four Nightingales". The brothers Julius and Arthur and another boy singer, Lou Levy, traveled the U. S. vaudeville circuits to little fanfare. After exhausting their prospects in the East, the family moved to La Grange, Illinois, to play the Midwest. After a dispiriting performance in Nacogdoches, Julius and Arthur began cracking jokes onstage for their own amusement. Much to their surprise, the audience liked them better as comedians than as singers, they modified the then-popular Gus Edwards comedy skit "School Days" and renamed it "Fun In Hi Skule". The Marx Brothers would perform variations on this routine for the next seven years. For a time in vaudeville, all the brothers performed using ethnic accents. Leonard, the oldest, developed the Italian accent he used as Chico Marx to convince some roving bullies that he was Italian, not Jewish. Arthur, the next oldest, donned a curly red wig and became "Patsy Brannigan", a stereotypical Irish character.

His discomfort when speaking on stage led to his uncle Al Shean's suggestion that he stop speaking altogether and play the role in mime. Julius Marx's character from "Fun In Hi Skule" was an ethnic German, so Julius played him with a German accent. After the sinking of the RMS Lusitania in 1915, public anti-German sentiment was widespread, Marx's German character was booed, so he dropped the accent and developed the fast-talking wise-guy character that became his trademark; the Marx Brothers became the biggest comedic stars of the Palace Theatre in New York, which billed itself as the "Valhalla of Vaudeville". Brother Chico's deal-making skills resulted in three hit plays on Broadway. No other comedy routine had so infected the Broadway circuit. All of this stage work predated their Hollywood career. By the time the Marxes made their first movie, they were major stars with honed skills. Marx started his career in vaudeville in 1905, he was asked by a man named Robin Leroy to join the group as a singer, along with fellow vaudeville actor Johnny Morris.

Through this act, Marx got his first taste of life as a vaudeville performer. In 1909, Marx and his brothers had become a group act, at first called The T

Dunbar Magnet Middle School

Dunbar Gifted & Talented Education International Studies Magnet Middle School is a magnet middle school for students in grades 6 through 8 located in Little Rock, United States. Dunbar Magnet Middle School is administered by the Little Rock School District, it is named for Paul Laurence Dunbar. With construction supported by the Rosenwald Fund and a matching program, the school was built in 1929. For nearly three decades it provided comprehensive education for black students in Little Rock, under a segregated system, its curriculum covered senior high school classes, as well as some junior college. After 1955 the junior college was discontinued and, with construction of a new high school, this building was devoted to junior high school, it was adapted as a magnet middle school in the public school system. Dunbar Junior and Senior High School and Junior College, is located at the corner of Wright Avenue and Ringo Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. Named for Paul Laurence Dunbar, the first African American to gain national eminence as a poet.

The institution has become significant in four distinct areas: African-American history, education history, legal history, architecture/engineering achievement. Between 1929 and 1955, Dunbar provided comprehensive education for black students in Little Rock, under a state-segregated system; the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Dunbar is located near the famous Little Rock Central High School and is a principal feeder into that school. Little Rock Central is on the National Register of Historic Places. Since its construction in 1929 supported as a Rosenwald School, Dunbar was the site of the Negro School of Industrial Arts, the Paul Laurence Dunbar Junior and Senior High School, Dunbar Junior College. Architecturally, Dunbar is a scaled miniature of Central High. Between 1929 and 1955, the school served as a junior and senior high school, with some classes developed for a junior college. In May 1955, the junior college program was abruptly terminated by the public school system, following the US Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education ruling that segregated education was unconstitutional.

In the fall 1955, this school became used as a junior high school. High school students attended the opened Horace Mann High School. In the early 21st century, most students take a foreign language class, 6th graders are required to take nine weeks of Spanish, German, or French, plus Latin. Many go on to second-year courses in these languages. Central High maintains a foreign language program that culminates with Spanish VI, German VI, French VI, Latin IV classes. Dunbar is the local anchor for an extensive Talented program.

Endpoint security

Endpoint security or endpoint protection is an approach to the protection of computer networks that are remotely bridged to client devices. The connection of laptops, mobile phones and other wireless devices to corporate networks creates attack paths for security threats. Endpoint security attempts to ensure that such devices follow a definite level of compliance to standards; the endpoint security space has evolved over the last several years away from limited antivirus software and into a more advanced, comprehensive defense. This includes next-generation antivirus, threat detection and response, device management, data leak protection and other considerations to face evolving threats. Endpoint security management is a software approach which helps to identify and manage the users' computer and data access over a corporate network; this allows the network administrator to restrict the use of sensitive data as well as certain website access to specific users, in order to maintain and comply with the organization's policies and standards.

The components involved in aligning the endpoint security management systems include a virtual private network client, an operating system and an updated endpoint agent. Computer devices that are not in compliance with the organization's policy are provisioned with limited access to a virtual LAN. Encrypting data on endpoints and removable storage devices helps to protect against data leaks. Endpoint security systems operate on a client–server model, with the security program controlled by a centrally managed host server pinned with a client program, installed on all the network drives. There is yet another model called the software-as-a-service, the security programs and the host server are maintained remotely by the merchant. In the payment card industry, the contribution from both the delivery models is that the server program verifies and authenticates the user login credentials and performs a device scan to check if it complies with a designated corporate security standards prior to permit network access.

In addition to protecting an organization's endpoints from potential threats, endpoint security allows IT admins to monitor operation functions and data backup strategies. Endpoint protection platforms are solutions that can be deployed on the endpoint to protect against file-based and other types of malware, through prevention and investigation and remediation capabilities. A number of vendors produce systems converging EPP systems with Endpoint Detection and Response platforms - systems focused on threat detection and unified monitoring.
