Rosa Jochmann

Rosa Jochmann was an Austrian resistance activist and Ravensbrück survivor who became a politician. Rosa Jochmann was born in the 20th district of the fourth of her parents' six children, her father worked as an iron foundryman: her mother worked in domestic service and as a laundry worker. While she was still young the family moved to the 11th district, in the southeast of the city, where they lived in a succession of rented rooms until 1912 when they moved into an apartment in the one of the new so-called "Krankenkassenhäusern", built at the instigation of the socialist politician Laurenz Widholz, alongside the "Braunhubergasse", she would still be living in southeast Vienna seventy years later. Her parents had both migrated to the capital from Moravia, where her father had been active in the Social democratic movement, her mother grew up in a Roman Catholic family. The language spoken at home was for the most part Czech - sometimes identified in contemporary sources as "Bemisch". Jochmann recalled that her father had never learned German.

He was, according to at least one source unemployed because of his reputation as a political activist. His daughter recalled in an interview that he "was a Social Democrat who never went to church, but had to say their prayers"; the Jochmann children grew up bilingual. When Rosa Jochmann was fourteen her mother died. Jochmann told an interviewer that she had by this time been nursing her sick mother for six years, she now became the principal carer for her two surviving younger sisters and Anna, while looking after her father. War had broken out in 1914 and Rosa's brother, returned with Tuberculosis, the "Viennese sickness" / "Wiener Krankheit" as it is described in one source. Karl died in 1920. In his years her father had a large red scar on his shoulder, inflicted with a sabre by a government official on a horse, policing a street protest. Rosa was with her father at the demonstration, conducted in order to press for voting rights, when her father received his injury. Like his wife, he never reached old age.

As a child it was a mother. When she was eleven, as a top student at her school, she was able to complete a typing and stenography course, which under other circumstances might have opened the way to a teaching career, but her domestic situation closed off that option. Nor would she become a mother. In 1915 she started work as an assistant with Victor Schmidt & Söhne, a long established Viennese manufacturer of sweets/candy; because she was young she earned only half as much as older workers though she was just as productive as they were. This gave rise to a sense of injustice which would become a theme of her political activism; because of the war, she was conscripted for work at a cable factory. Here, during a night shift, she crushed a finger on the flywheel of a winding-drum, she transferred to the Apollo candle factory. Early on she became a works council member and active trades unionist. In 1920 colleagues at Auer elected her chair of the works council. Jochmann's union activism continued, came to embrace a wider political activism.

In 1926 the head of the Chemical Workers Union, Julius Weiß, arranged for her to be a member of the first group of students at the newly established Workers' Academy in Vienna 19. She was one of few women attending the wide ranging six month course which she completed successfully. Topics included Applied Economics and Civil Law and Rhetoric, her teachers included future leaders of the Social Democratic movement in Austria, such as Otto Bauer and Karl Renner. Still aged only 25, she emerged to be appointed union secretary of the Chemical Workers Union. Rosa Jochmann joined the Social Democratic Party in 1926, she attended that year's party conference, at which the important new party programme was adopted, as an observer, viewing from the visitors' gallery. However, she moved up the party hierarchy. In 1932 she became a member of the party Women's Secretariat. In 1933, at the last party conference before the SDAP was banned, Rosa Jochmann and Helene Postranecky were elected to the party national executive in succession to Adelheid Popp and Therese Schlesinger.

During the four day February Uprising in 1934 Rosa Jochmann was installed inside the Republican Protection League headquarters at George Washington Court. From there she stenographed radio messages, updating the outside world about the progress of the fighting, delivering texts to Otto Bauer and Julius Deutsch in the next door room; the insurgency collapsed. On the night of 12 February 1934 Jochmann was one of those who persuaded the leader of the party, Otto Bauer, that for him to remain in Austria would be fatal. Bauer escaped across the border to the north, would spend the next four years as a political exile in Brno, he resigned the party leadership, but during the difficult years that followed was able to remain in frequent contact with former

Button (computing)

In computing, the term button refers to any graphical control element that provides the user a simple way to trigger an event, like searching for a query at a search engine, or to interact with dialog boxes, like confirming an action. A typical button is a rectangle or rounded rectangle, wider than it is tall, with a descriptive caption in its center; the most common method of pressing a button is clicking it with a pointer controlled by a mouse, but other input such as keystrokes can be used to execute the command of a button. A button is not however always restricted to a rectangular shape; the sole requirement of button interaction is. Thus pictures and background areas can be programmed as buttons; when pressed, in addition to performing a predetermined task, buttons undergo a graphical change to mimic a mechanical button being depressed. Depending on the circumstance, buttons may be designated to be pushed only once and execute a command, while others may be used to receive instant feed back and may require the user to click more than once to receive the desired result.

Other buttons are designed to toggle behavior off like a check box. These buttons will show a graphical clue to indicate the state of the option. A button displays a tooltip when a user moves the pointer over it; the tooltip serves as built-in documentation that explains the purpose of the button. Some common incarnations of the button widget are: An OK button for confirming actions and closing the windows A Cancel button for canceling actions and closing the window An Apply button for confirming actions without closing the window A Close button for closing windows after changes have been applied Buttons in macOS's Aqua interface are depicted as rounded-rectangles of crystallised glass; these buttons are light grey in color, turn blue when pressed. The button with keyboard focus appears with a blue glow surrounding it; the default button in an active window animates between a darker blue. Used within application toolbars, are rounded rectangles with a light grey metallic appearance; these buttons appear darker and "pushed inward".

Window management controls appear in the top left corner of each window. These buttons are color-coded as a memory aid. From left to right, these are: "Close Window", shown in red. Buttons in Microsoft Windows are rectangular, with mildly rounded corners in Windows XP, 7. In Windows 8, the buttons are rectangular with sharp corners. A button with active focus is shown with a black dotted line just inside the border of the button. In addition, more recent versions, the default button is shown with a blue border. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, the default button will fade between its normal appearance and the blue border. Window management controls are in the upper right-hand corner of the application window, from left to right: "minimize" the window; the appearance and behavior of buttons in Linux and other Unix-like operating systems is defined by which widget toolkit is being employed, the most popular being GTK+ and Qt, though other toolkits are used as well. The use of multiple toolkits can feel across applications.

Most widget toolkits have theming capabilities, so there is no single standard appearance as there is with Mac OS and Windows. Buttons appear as elements of HTML forms to carry out actions such as clearing user input or submitting the form contents to the server. Buttons specified in HTML may be rendered by web browsers in different ways either using the native button appearance of the underlying OS, or by using a button definition from within the browser. Buttons may be styled by the developer of the web site the form appears on by using cascading style sheets. HTML links are sometimes represented by a graphic resembling a button. Sometimes this type of link is used in advertisements to induce the user to click the ad and visit the advertiser's site

John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site

The John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site is the birthplace and childhood home of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States; the house is at 83 Beals Street in the Coolidge Corner neighborhood of Massachusetts. The property is now owned by the National Park Service; the Kennedy home was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964, was established as a National Historic Site on May 26, 1967. The house was purchased by Joseph Patrick Kennedy, Sr. on 20 August 1914 in preparation for his marriage to Rose Elizabeth Fitzgerald on 7 October 1914. John and his sisters Rosemary and Kathleen were born in the upstairs master bedroom; the family lived there until 1920, when the growth of the family motivated the Kennedys to move to a larger home just a few blocks away on the corner of Abbottsford and Naples Roads. The Kennedys sold the Beals Street house to his family; the Kennedys lived in the Abbottsford Road home until 1927, when Joe Kennedy's business interests prompted the family's move to Riverdale, New York.

The Kennedy family was the third owner of the house on Beals Street. It was built in a period of rapid growth in Brookline; the Kennedys moved into the home the last on the street, after returning from their honeymoon in 1914. A few months after they were married, Joe Kennedy purchased a new Model T Ford that he used to commute to downtown, where he worked as the president of the Columbia Trust Bank; the "T" line to Coolidge Corner existed. Rose Kennedy would walk from the Beals Street house down to the shopping district in Coolidge Corner, where there was a S. S. Pierce store -- which replaced the Brothers General Store -- among the other shops. Brookline was a growing suburb of Boston, it appealed to the growing Kennedy family because the suburbs would have more space for the children to play than if they were raised in the crowded inner city of Boston. In 1966, the Kennedy family repurchased the home. From 1966 to 1969, Rose Kennedy restored it to her recollection of its 1917 appearance, she wanted to restore the home to the hour of John's birth, but the home paints a picture of a typical American home 1914–1920.

About 19% of the artifacts in the home are original to the Kennedy family, either used in the Beals Street residence or in homes and returned to Beals Street during the restoration. Rose Kennedy worked with an interior designer named Robert Luddington as she restored the home, he was in charge of procuring the rest of the items in the home, which are either period antiques or reproductions. Rose Kennedy donated the home to the National Park Service in 1967 as a memorial to her son, it is open to the public and visitors can take a ranger-guided tour or self-guided tours through the home. The house: Visitors can tour each of these rooms by both the ranger led and the self-guided tours; the basement is the visitors' entrance and National Park visitor center. There is a small Eastern National retail shop. Visitors can watch a film. Living room Visitors to the Kennedy home would have been shown into the living room, or parlor as it would have been called when the family lived there. Here, visitors can see both a space for formal entertaining within the home, but a space where the family would relax in the evenings when the children were getting ready for bed and when Joe Kennedy returned from his office in Boston.

The piano dominating the parlor belonged to Rose Kennedy and is one of the original pieces in the home. It was a wedding gift from two of her uncles. Dining room The dining room has the home's most complete collection of Kennedy artifacts; the china was Rose's wedding china. The table would not have been set with a formal place setting for day to day meals. Rose Kennedy sets the table this way because as she is turning the house into a museum, she is expecting company. Meals were a time for the family to have lively discussions about topics that ranged from history, to politics, current events and religion. Rose was fond of saying "history is shaped by those who get their ideas across" and mealtime discussions were a staple in the Kennedy home. Meals were a formal affair, with the family assembling in the dining room and the food brought from the kitchen by a uniformed maid. Master bedroom The master bedroom is where Jack and Kathleen Kennedy were born. Jack Kennedy was born at 3:00pm on May 29, 1917.

Rose Kennedy had seven of her nine children at home, the same doctor, Dr. Good, delivered all of them, as well as the final two who were born in a hospital; the bedroom has several photographs, including the 6 month old baby pictures of Joe Jr. Jack and Kathleen. Nursery The nursery has a bassinet that will hold each of the nine Kennedy children, as well as a christening cap, a number of books and toys Joe Jr. and Jack would have played with. Visitors can see Jack's two favorite books: "King Arthur and his Knights" and "Billy Whiskers and His Kids." Guest bedroom The guest bedroom showcases linens bearing Rose's initials - REF - and Rosemary Kennedy's toiletry set. The guest room was converted to a girl's bedroom as soon as Kathleen were born. Boudoir The boudoir was Rose's private space as well as her office space, she would use the desk to do her correspondence. The desk showcases a card file. Rose kept an index card for each of her children where she would list important milestones in their medical history - things like vaccinations, major illnesses and hospital stays, as well as birthdays and confirmation dates.

Jack Kennedy's card is on the desk. Ki
