I Will Always Love You

"I Will Always Love You" is a song written and recorded in 1973 by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. Her country version of the track was released in 1974 as a single and was written as a farewell to her former partner and mentor of seven years, Porter Wagoner, following Parton's decision to leave The Porter Wagoner Show and pursue a solo career. Parton's version of "I Will Always Love You" was a commercial success, it reached. It first reached number one in June 1974, in October 1982, with her re-recording on the soundtrack of the movie version of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Thus, she achieved a number one position twice with the same song, a rare feat that Chubby Checker had done with "The Twist" becoming number one in 1960 and again in 1962. Whitney Houston recorded her version of the song for the 1992 film The Bodyguard, her single spent 14 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is one of the best-selling singles of all time. It holds the record for being the best-selling single by a woman in music history.

Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You" re-entered the charts in 2012 after her death, making it the second single to reach the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 in separate chart runs. The song has been recorded by many other artists including Linda Ronstadt, John Doe, Amber Riley, LeAnn Rimes and Sarah Washington, whose dance version reached number 12 on the UK Singles Chart. Country music singer-songwriter Dolly Parton wrote the song in 1973 for her one-time partner and mentor Porter Wagoner, from whom she was separating professionally after a seven-year partnership, she recorded it in RCA's Studio B in Nashville on June 12, 1973. "I Will Always Love You" was issued on March 18, 1974, as the second single from Parton's thirteenth solo studio album, Jolene. In 1982, Parton re-recorded the song, when it was included on the soundtrack to the film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. In addition to the 1982 re-recording for the soundtrack album, Parton's original 1974 recording of the song appeared in Martin Scorsese's film Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, the 1996 film It's My Party.

The song won Parton Female Vocalist of the Year at the 1975 CMA Awards. Author Curtis W. Ellison stated that the song "speaks about the breakup of a relationship between a man and a woman that does not descend into unremitting domestic turmoil, but instead envisions parting with respect – because of the initiative of the woman". According to sheet music published at musicnotes.com by Hal Leonard Corporation, the country love track is set in a time signature of common time with a tempo of 66 beats per minute. Although Parton found much success with the song, many people are unaware of its origin. During an interview on The Bobby Bones Show, Dolly Parton revealed that she wrote her signature song "Jolene" on the same day that she wrote "I Will Always Love You."Several times, Dolly Parton suggested to singer Patti Labelle that she record "I Will Always Love You" because she felt Patti could have sung it so well. However, Patti admitted she kept putting off the opportunity to do so and deeply regretted it after she heard Whitney Houston's rendition.

During its original release in 1974, "I Will Always Love You" reached number four in Canada on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart and peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, becoming one of the best selling singles of 1974. When Parton re-recorded the song in 1982 for the soundtrack of the film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the track was issued as a single and once again charted at number one on Hot Country Songs — making her the first artist to earn a number one record twice with the same song; the 1982 version reached number 53 on Billboard's Hot 100 and number 17 on its adult contemporary charts. Parton's recording has sold 489,000 digital copies since becoming available for download. Parton recorded a duet with Vince Gill in 1995 for the album Something Special, the duet version of "I Will Always Love You" made the Billboard country chart and peaked at number 15. Parton and Gill were awarded the CMA's "Vocal Event of the Year" award in 1996 for their recording of the song.

Another duet version of the song was released in 2017 with Michael Bolton from his album Songs of Cinema. When the 1974 recording of the song was reaching number one on the country charts, Elvis Presley indicated that he wanted to cover the song. Parton was interested until Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, told her that it was standard procedure for the songwriter to sign over half of the publishing rights to any song Elvis recorded. Parton refused, she recalls:I said,'I'm sorry,' and I cried all night. I mean, it was like the worst thing. You know, it's like, Oh, my God … Elvis Presley.' And other people were saying,'You're nuts. It's Elvis Presley.'... I said,'I can't do that. Something in my heart says, `, and I just didn't do it... He would have killed it, but anyway, so he didn't. When Whitney came out, I made enough money to buy Graceland. In Curtis W. Ellison's book, Country Music Culture: From Hard Times to Heaven, he stated: "In the early 1990s, when ambiguity in romantic relationships accompanies changing expectations for both men and women, this song demonstrates Dolly Parton's appeal as a songwriter in the pop music market."

Ken Knight, author of The Midnight Show: Late Night Cable-TV "Guy-Flicks" of the'80s, commented that Parton is the only singer who can sing "I Will

Chrysler LH platform

The LH platform served as the basis for the Chrysler Concorde, Chrysler LHS, Chrysler 300M, Dodge Intrepid, Eagle Vision, the final Chrysler New Yorker. A Plymouth to be called the "Accolade" never saw production; the platform pioneered Chrysler's "cab-forward" design. As the 1990s dawned, Chrysler faced a renewed round of financial troubles; the US economy slipped into a recession following the 1987 Black Monday stock market crash and the Savings and Loan Crisis, but the company's main problems were due to a lack of engineering innovation and careless spending during the years of prosperity in the 80s. Most of Chrysler's lineup was based on the proven, but dated K-car platform, plus debt accumulated from expensive purchases including Italian automakers Lamborghini and Maserati, along with American Motors, critics criticized their inability to produce cars that were competitive with Japanese companies or Ford, which had just struck a coup-de-grace with the Taurus line, it was widely believed that Chairman Lee Iacocca had stayed at the helm of Chrysler too long.

Thus, it was time for the automaker to make a fresh start for the 1990s. In 1992, Iacocca was persuaded to retire. Although some suspected that he would turn the leadership over to Bob Lutz, he instead designated the more conservative, straitlaced Bob Eaton as new chairman. With Chrysler facing an uncertain future in the late 80s, engineering teams were allowed to explore new designs, discouraged under Iacocca's tenure; the LH platform was based on the American Renault-derived Eagle Premier. According to Bob Lutz, "he Premier had an excellent chassis and drove so damned well that it served as a benchmark for the LH... the spiritual father, the genetic antecedent of the LH is the Premier." Like the Premier, the LH-cars featured a longitudinally-mounted engine with a front-wheel drive drivetrain, unusual in most U. S. front-wheel drive cars. This arrangement meant that the design team had to use a chain to connect the automatic transmission with the front differential, a design reminiscent of the original Oldsmobile Toronado though subject to greater wear and noise.

The LH platform team was headed by François Castaing, responsible for product engineering and development at American Motors Corporation. Working with an engineering team of only 700, it took just over three years from the styling studio to the showrooms. To give focus for the platform engineering team, the benchmark target was the Eagle Premier. Exterior styling was influenced by another Chrysler design which debuted as the Lamborghini Portofino, a concept car introduced at the 1987 Frankfurt Auto Show, developed for Lamborghini by Kevin Verduyn, one of Chrysler's chief designers; the Dodge and Eagle LH cars competed directly against the Ford Taurus and other mid-size cars replacing the K-based C-bodies. The Chrysler models competed with upmarket domestics such as Oldsmobile; the LH cars debuted in 1992, were updated in 1997. The LH platform was replaced with the rear-wheel drive Chrysler LX platform for the 2005 model year. While Chrysler's sales never rose to the levels of those popular rivals, the LH vehicles succeeded in altering Chrysler's dowdy public image, recasting the automaker as an innovative design leader.

The cab-forward look influenced Chrysler's subsequent compact PL and midsize JA platform car designs in the 1990s. Much as the company had done in the months leading up to the introduction of the K-platform cars in 1980, Chrysler referred directly to the LH platform in advertisements touting the advantages of its "cab-forward" architecture, referred to the platform name for the Chrysler LHS sedan. Although the real "gold mine" of Chrysler's acquisition of AMC was the Jeep brand, their minivans and LH sedans helped to bail the company out of certain bankruptcy in the 1990s; the first generation LH cars used the existing 3.3 L OHV V6 as well as a new 3.5 L SOHC V6, a four-speed automatic transmission. Cars that used the first version of the LH platform include: 1993-1997 Chrysler Concorde 1993-1997 Dodge Intrepid 1993-1997 Eagle Vision 1994-1996 Chrysler New Yorker 1994-1997 Chrysler LHSAll versions shared a 113-inch wheelbase. One year after the original three cars were introduced, the "stretched" LHS and New Yorker had different rear bodywork providing 5 inches more overall length as well as a revised rear seat providing more leg room.

Chrysler came close to giving Plymouth a variant of the LH platform, called the Plymouth Accolade, a name consistent with the then-current Plymouth Acclaim. It was to be a base model below the equipment level of the Intrepid; the Accolade never made it into production. The second generation LH cars used the 2.7 L DOHC V6 and 3.2 L SOHC V6, as well as an updated version of the older 3.5, a four-speed automatic transmission. Cars that used the second version of the LH platform include: 1998-2004 Chrysler Concorde 1998-2004 Dodge Intrepid 1999-2001 Chrysler LHS 1999-2004 Chrysler 300M 2002-2004 Chrysler Concorde LimitedWhen Chrysler discontinued the Eagle brand after 1998, the Chrysler 300M was introduced as a replacement for the Vision. All models again shared a wheelbase of 113 inches; the 300M was several inches shorter than Concorde, Intrepid, & LHS, due to shorter front and rear overhangs in order to bring the car's length under 5 meters.

Richard Pearson (film editor)

Richard Pearson is an American film editor, associated with action films. Pearson, with Clare Douglas and Christopher Rouse, received the BAFTA Award for Best Editing for the film United 93. Pearson was born in Minneapolis and raised in New Hope, Minnesota; as a college student in the early 1980s, Pearson was an intern at the television station WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. He moved to Hollywood in 1985 to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, his first editing credit was for the television miniseries From the Earth to the Moon. The "1968" episode of From the Earth to the Moon was nominated for an American Cinema Editors "Eddie" award and for an Emmy Award. Christopher Rouse, Pearson's co-editor on The Bourne Supremacy and United 93 worked on this miniseries. Following an editing credit for the film Muppets from Space, Pearson edited two films that were directed by Frank Oz, Jim Henson's early collaborator in developing The Muppets. United 93 was directed by Paul Greengrass, noted for films that are "shot verité style as a detailed mass of hectic vignettes—jagged jump cuts, sudden blackouts, overlapping everything."

The use of three editors on United 93 was dictated by its short post-production period. Greengrass and Douglas had worked together quite on the film Bloody Sunday. Despite the accelerated post-production schedule for United 93, the editing was successful. Ellen Feldman has written an analysis of the film's editing. In addition to the BAFTA Award, the editors were nominated for an Academy Award for Film Editing and for an ACE Eddie Award. Pearson has been elected to membership in the American Cinema Editors. Pearson was an editor of Quantum of Solace, along with Matt Chesse, he worked on Safe House. He resides in California.

Rogerian argument

Rogerian argument is a conflict-solving technique based on seeking common ground instead of polarizing debate. According to English professor James Baumlin, The Rogerian strategy, in which participants in a discussion collaborate to find areas of shared experience, thus allows speaker and audience to open up their worlds to each other, in this attempt at mutual understanding, there is the possibility, at least, of persuasion. For in this state of sympathetic understanding, we recognize both the multiplicity of world-views and our freedom to choose among them—either to retain our old or take a new; the writings of American psychotherapist Carl Rogers inspired rhetoricians to formulate principles of communication based on empathizing with the views of others and seeking common ground. The rhetoricians proposed trying to understand the adversary's beliefs and emotions, by listening to them, instead of adopting a point of view without considering those factors; some rhetoricians have portrayed this form of argumentation as the opposite of Aristotelian argumentation, which they portrayed as an adversarial form of debate, because Rogerian argument attempts to find mutual understanding and compromise between two sides.

Rogerian argument can be useful in charged topics since it defuses emotional reasoning and highlights rational arguments. Young and Pike identified four stages: An introduction to the problem and a demonstration that the opponent's position is understood. A statement of the contexts in which the opponent's position may be valid. A statement of the writer's position, including the contexts in which it is valid. A statement of how the opponent's position would benefit if they were to adopt elements of the writer's position. If the writer can show that the positions complement each other, that each supplies what the other lacks, so much the better
