John Barrymore

John Barrymore was an American actor on stage and radio. A member of the Drew and Barrymore theatrical families, he tried to avoid the stage, attempted a career as an artist, but appeared on stage together with his father Maurice in 1900, his sister Ethel the following year, he began his career in 1903 and first gained attention as a stage actor in light comedy high drama, culminating in productions of Justice, Richard III and Hamlet. After a success as Hamlet in London in 1925, Barrymore left the stage for 14 years and instead focused on films. In the silent film era, he was well received in such pictures as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sherlock Holmes and The Sea Beast. During this period, he gained the Great Profile, his stage-trained voice proved an asset when sound films were introduced, three of his works, Grand Hotel, Twentieth Century and Midnight have been inducted into the National Film Registry. Barrymore's personal life has been the subject of much attention since his death, he struggled with alcohol abuse from the age of 14, was married and divorced four times, declared bankruptcy in life.

Much of his work involved self-parody and the portrayal of drunken has-beens. His obituary in The Washington Post observed that "with the passing of the years – and as his private life became more public – he became, despite his genius in the theater, a tabloid character." Although film historians have opined that Barrymore's "contribution to the art of cinematic acting began to fade" after the mid-1930s, Barrymore's biographer, Martin Norden, considers him to be "perhaps the most influential and idolized actor of his day". Barrymore was born John Sidney Blyth in Philadelphia, was known by family and colleagues as "Jack". Although the Barrymore family Bible puts his date of birth as February 15, 1882, his birth certificate shows February 14, he was the youngest of three children. His siblings were Lionel, Ethel, his father was Maurice Barrymore, an Indian-born British actor, born Herbert Blyth, had adopted Barrymore as a stage name after seeing it on a poster in the Haymarket Theatre in London.

Barrymore's mother, Georgie Drew Barrymore, was born into a prominent theatrical family. Barrymore's maternal grandparents were Louisa Lane Drew, a well-known 19th-century American actress and the manager of the Arch Street Theatre, John Drew an actor whose specialty was comedy. Barrymore's maternal uncles were John Drew Jr. and Sidney. Much of Barrymore's early life was unsettled. In October 1882, the family toured in the US for a season with Polish actress Helena Modjeska; the following year his parents left the children behind. Modjeska was influential in the family, she insisted that all three children be baptized into the Catholic Church. In 1884 the family traveled to London as part of Augustin Daly's theatrical company, returning to the US two years later; as a child, Barrymore was sometimes badly behaved, he was sent away to schools in an attempt to instill discipline. The strategy was not always successful, he attended elementary schools in four states, he was sent first to the boys' annex of the Convent of Notre Dame in Philadelphia.

One punishment. I wanted to be an artist", he was expelled from the school in 1891 and was sent to Seton Hall Preparatory School in New Jersey, where Lionel was studying. Barrymore was unhappy at Seton and was soon withdrawn, after which he attended several public schools in New York, including the Mount Pleasant Military Academy. In 1892, his grandmother Louisa Drew's business began to suffer, she lost control of her theater, causing disruption in the family; the following year, when Barrymore was 11 years old, his mother died from tuberculosis. The loss of their mother's income prompted both Ethel and Lionel to seek work as professional actors. Barrymore's father was absent from the family home while on tour, when he returned he would spend time at The Lambs, a New York actors' club. In 1895, Barrymore entered Georgetown Preparatory School located on Georgetown University Campus, but he was expelled in November 1897 after being caught waiting in a brothel. One of his biographers, Michael A. Morrison, posits the alternate theory that Barrymore was expelled after the staff saw him inebriated.

By the time he left Georgetown he was, according to Martin Norden in his biography of Barrymore, "already in the early stages of a chronic drinking problem". 1897 was an challenging year for Barrymore: he lost his virginity when he was seduced by his step-mother, Mamie Floyd, in August his grandmother, the main female role model in his life, died. Barrymore traveled with his father to England in 1898, where he joined King's College School, Wimbledon. A year he joined the Slade School of Fine Art, to study literature and art. After a year of formal study, he left and "devoted much of his subsequent stay in London to bohemianism and nocturnal adventures", according to his biographer Margot Peters. Barrymore returned to New York in the summer of 1900, by November he found work as an illustrator on The New York Evening Journal, at a salary of $50 a week

Hilo High School

Hilo High School is a public, co-educational high school of the Hawaii State Department of Education, serves grades nine through twelve. Established in 1906, its first class graduated in 1909. Hilo High School is near the Wailuku River in Hawaii County on the Big Island of Hawaii; the campus boasts the black marble terrazzo and gray gravel sculpture Matrix by Ken Shutt in the middle of its two patios in its courtyard. The school is situated at 556 Waianuenue Avenue on across the street from Hilo Intermediate School, one of its two feeder schools, the other being Kalanianaole Intermediate School. Hilo's symbol and mascot is the Viking and its school colors are blue and gold. Hilo High School celebrated its centennial during Homecoming of 2006. Hilo High School's crosstown rivals are the Warriors of Waiakea High School. Hilo High School was started by the school authorities in September 1905; the idea for a high school is attributed to principal of Hilo Union School. The weak public interest grew stronger as the public realized the benefits from a high school in Hilo, Hawaii.

At the time, the only High Schools on the island were Kau High and Pahala Elementary School and Honokaa High & Intermediate School, both over 30 miles away in rural sugar communities that were disconnected from most of the island and were only accessible by railroad. Most students who wished to attend high school went to boarding school in Hawaii; the school changed location in 1907 to the District Annex location and was named Hilo Junior High School, moved yet again in 1922 to its present location on Waianuenue Avenue. Hilo High School's rival is Waiakea High School. Hilo High School's sports are neck to neck with Waiākea High School's. 1922- First Building- Makai Building 1926- Miss Margaret Way's music class created the Hilo High Alma mater 1927- Auditorium Building donated by the Alumni Association. 1931 and 1934-Cafeteria built 1935- First stage of the Mauka Building built 1936- Second stage of the Mauka Building built 1939- Third stage of the Mauka Building built 1937- Original gym and wood shop built 1961- Administration Building Built 1962- Swimming Pool donated by Mrs. John M Ross and Mrs. Isabel Kennedy 1963- The Library and Multi Purpose Room was built 1968- The Cafeteria was built 1970- R-Building 1977- Mauka Building burns down 1979- 100-car parking lot built 1980- C Building built 2014- New Gym built at the old annex location.

The Hilo High School Foundation was formed in 1990, with the purpose of creating and maintaining an endowment fund that would fund educational programs and activities at Hilo High School that would not or could not be funded from State of Hawaii funds. It annually provides the school with the interest earnings for distribution to programs. A committee designated by the Principal solicits and reviews proposals from faculty for new and innovative programs that benefit the educational experience of Hilo High School students. To date, the Foundation has distributed a total of over $130,000 to Hilo High School, its 2005 Financial Report place its assets at $724,063.44.

Beneath the tropic Skies of Hilo Stands dear old Hilo High School Dearer shall it grow With the spirit of Blue and Gold In our hearts we hold thee Alma Mater mine Loyalty and Honor Shall Forever be thine! Hilo High School's commencement exercises are held during the end of May. Hilo High school has several commencement traditions that stretch back to the school's first graduation in 1909; the graduating class recites a variation of Gaudeamus Igitur with lyrics directly referencing Hilo High, members of the Hilo High School Alumni Association pass out a lei to every graduate. This latter tradition is attributed to the patriarch of the Tong family, among the school's first graduates and gave a lei to a fellow graduate, without one during their commencement ceremony; the Tong family awarded the school's Salutatorian award and trophy with a cash prize until 2003, when the Salutatorian returned the cash prize out of respect for the family's disagreement with the school's current practice of awarding the Valedictorian distinction to more than one student.

The Valedictorian trophy is maintained by the Hilo High School Foundation. Now, with the introduction of AP classes to Hilo High, it is possible for more than one student to become a valedictorian within the same graduating class since AP classes allow the student to get over a 4.0. The current requirements for becoming a valedictorian include getting the distinguished BOE diploma as well as getting a weighted GPA of at least 4.0. Hilo High supports an array of clubs that promotes and supports the talents, knowledge and abilities of the students; the clubs al

Club gave the episode a C rating, writing: "It's sloppy, but that's to be expected from an episode of American Horror Story that tosses seven or eight of its proverbial chainsaws into the air without any noticeable concern for juggling them. Not to mention the rendition of a Nirvana song that would be written forty years after the episode takes place. What irks me about "Test Of Strength" is how it left me feeling: Numb."

Matt Fowler of IGN wrote: "Test of Strength" may have been power plays and backstabbing, but it was tight and helped Dell feel
