Robert Kilwardby

Robert Kilwardby was an Archbishop of Canterbury in England and a cardinal. Kilwardby was the first member of a mendicant order to attain a high ecclesiastical office in the English Church. Kilwardby studied at the University of Paris was a teacher of grammar and logic there, he joined the Dominican Order and studied theology, became regent at Oxford University before 1261 by 1245. He was named provincial prior of the Dominicans for England in 1261, in October 1272 Pope Gregory X appointed him as Archbishop of Canterbury to end a dispute over the election. Kilwardby was provided to the archbishopric on 11 October 1272, given the temporalities on 12 December 1272, consecrated on 26 February 1273. Kilwardby crowned Edward I and his wife Eleanor as king and queen of England in August 1274, but otherwise took little part in politics, he instead concentrated on his ecclesiastical duties, including charity to the poor and donating to the Dominicans. In 1278 Pope Nicholas III named Kilwardby Cardinal Bishop of Santa Rufina.

He resigned Canterbury and left England, taking with him papers and documents belonging to the see. He left the see deep in debt again, after his predecessor had cleared the debt, he was buried in the Dominican convent in Viterbo, Italy. While in theory this was a promotion it was not, as the pope was unhappy with Kilwardby's support of efforts to resist the payment of papal revenues and with the lack of effort towards the reforms demanded at the Second Council of Lyon in 1274. Kilwardby's theological and philosophical views were summed up by David Knowles who said that he was a "conservative eclectic, holding the doctrine of seminal tendencies and opposing...the Aristotelian doctrine of the unity of form in beings, including man." Some sources state that he was the author of Summa Philosophiae, a history and description of the schools of philosophical thought current, but the writing style is not similar to his other works, Knowles, for one, does not believe it was authored by Kilwardby. It has been alleged.

In 1277 he prohibited the teaching of thirty theses, some of which have been thought to touch upon Thomas Aquinas' teaching. Recent scholars, such as Roland Hissette, have challenged this interpretation.

Rich Conaty

Richard Brian "Rich" Conaty was a New York City disc jockey. He was an important figure in popular music of the 1920s and 1930s. Conaty is best known for the weekly music radio show he hosted, The Big Broadcast, on Fordham University's FM radio station, WFUV, in the Bronx, New York; the show's title is derived from the 1932 film of the same name starring Bing Crosby, who plays a star singer at a radio station. The show featured jazz and popular music recordings from the 1910s through the 1930s. Conaty founded The Big Broadcast when he was a freshman at Fordham University in January 1973, it ran for over 2200 shows over more than 40 years. In its final form, The Big Broadcast was a four-hour long show that, aside from a variety of recordings, included birthday tributes that featured records of compositions or performances created by artists whose birthday fell during the week of broadcast. Over the years Conaty developed a large record collection. In the course of putting together his program he developed a depth of scholarly knowledge on the music of the period, displayed on air.

Conaty highlighted once-popular artists who have dropped into obscurity. The program was a showplace for his humor self-deprecating; because he started his show at a young age, Conaty had the chance to meet or interview more than a few artists from the 1910-1939 period, some became his close friends. These people included Annette Hanshaw, Bob Effros, Edward Eliscu, Ben Selvin, Vet Boswell, Dolly Dawn, Cab Calloway, Connee Boswell, Arthur Tracy. Bill Challis, Mitchell Parish. Conaty knew radio personalities Joe Franklin, Floyd Vivino, Danny Stiles, Phil Schaap. Conaty's first involvement with radio was in 1971, while he was attending Monsignor McClancy Memorial High School in Queens, New York, when he served as an intern at the Hofstra University radio station, WRHU, he attended Fordham University. In 1983, Conaty was hired by program director Jim Lowe at WNEW-AM, a station which at that time featured a pop-standards format, and, home to well-known DJs specializing in that sort of music, from whom Conaty was able to learn.

For a time he hosted Milkman's Matinee, a show, on for decades. In the early 1980s, he got a chance to fill in as host of Make Believe Ballroom, a show, hosted by the legendary William B. Williams; when WNEW-AM changed format, WQEW attempted fill the market niche on the New York radio dial playing pop standards, Conaty moved The Big Broadcast and his Saturday program, The Big Bandstand, from WFUV to WQEW in December 1992. By the late 1990s it was evident that WQEW would abandon the format, in 1998 the station became Radio Disney. In July 1997, Conaty brought his shows back to WFUV; the Big Broadcast aired in reruns on WFUV during his illness, for about six months after Conaty's death. The old shows have been archived on the Fordham University Library web site, where they can be listened to by the public. Rich Conaty was a longtime friend of Vince Giordano, Conaty played an important role in the founding of Giordano's band, the Nighthawks Orchestra. Conaty was the band's frontman, Conaty and Giordano were for a time partners in the band.

Starting in 2006, Conaty annotated a series of collections of 1920s and 1930s jazz. Like the show, these were titled The Big Broadcast. There were 12 volumes, released annually in the spring; the final CD was released posthumously, with the selection of tracks made by Conaty, while the track annotations were written by friends and fellow 78 rpm record collectors. Those CDs still in print are available from Rivermont Records. Aside from being offered for sale by Rivermont, they were used as membership gifts for listeners joining WFUV. Conaty was raised in Queens, he was married to Mary. He nicknamed his wife "Manhattan Mary", a reference to a 1927 show of the same name and its title song. At the end of his life Conaty lived in New York in New York State's Hudson Valley, he was known in the area for his 1950 Nash Ambassador. Aside from his radio show, Conaty worked as a driver of a bus for adults with disabilities. Conaty died of lymphoma on December 30, 2016 at the age of 62 in Catskill, New York

His catchphrases include "Neato Mosquito", "Leaping Lima Beans", "Mighty Macaroni", "Awesome Possum", "Hi, I'm Todd, this is my world!" Benny is Todd's talking dog, energetic and playful with a big appetite. He can be lazy at times, sleeps in a lot; however he likes to hang out with the group valuing his bond with Todd above all else, to the point of acting childishly if he feels their time together is being tampered with, or worrying over Todd's opinions of him if he should mess up.

Hideaki Anno

Hideaki Anno is a Japanese artist, anime creator, screenwriter, producer and businessperson. He is best known for creating the popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, his style has become defined by his incorporation of postmodernism and the extensive portrayal of characters' thoughts and emotions through unconventional scenes presenting the mental deconstruction of those characters. Anno's other directorial efforts include Gunbuster, Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Kare Kano, Love & Pop, Shiki-Jitsu, Cutie Honey, Re: Cutie Honey, Rebuild of Evangelion, Shin Godzilla. Anime directed by Anno that have won the Animage Anime Grand Prix award have been Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water in 1990, Neon Genesis Evangelion in 1995 and 1996, The End of Evangelion in 1997. Anno was born in Yamaguchi. Anno is an agnostic and has stated that he has found Japanese spiritualism to be closest to his personal beliefs. Anno is a vegetarian. Anno began his career while attending Osaka University of Arts as an animator for the anime series The Super Dimension Fortress Macross.

Wrapped up in producing the DAICON III and IV Opening Animations with his fellow students, he was expelled from Osaka University. Anno did not gain recognition until the release of his work on Hayao Miyazaki's 1984 film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Running short on animators, the film's production studio posted an ad in the famous Japanese animation magazine Animage, announcing that they were in desperate need of more animators. Anno, in his early twenties at the time, read the ad and headed down to the film's studio, where he met with Miyazaki and showed him some of his drawings. Impressed with his ability, Miyazaki hired him to draw some of the most complicated scenes near the end of the movie, valued his work highly. Anno went on to become one of the co-founders of Gainax in December 1984, he worked as an animation director for their first feature-length film, Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise, became Gainax's premiere anime director, leading the majority of the studio's projects such as Gunbuster and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water.

However, Anno fell into a four-year depression following Nadia — the series was handed down to him from NHK from an original concept by Hayao Miyazaki and he was given little creative control. In 1994, the minor planet 9081 Hideakianno was named after him by his old friend Akimasa Nakamura. Anno's next project was the anime television series Neon Genesis Evangelion. Anno's history of clinical depression was the main source for many of the psychological elements of the series and its characters, as he wrote down on paper several of the trials and tribulations of his condition. During the show's production, Anno became disenchanted with the Japanese "otaku" lifestyle. For this and other reasons, Evangelion's plot became dark and psychological as the series progressed, despite being broadcast in a children's television timeslot. Anno felt that people should be exposed to the realities of life at as young an age as possible, by the end of the series all attempts at traditional narrative logic were abandoned, with the final two episodes taking place within the main character's mind.

The show did not garner high ratings in Japan at its initial time slot, but after being moved to a more adult-oriented venue, it gained considerable popularity. Budgeting issues at Gainax forced Anno to replace the planned ending of Evangelion with two episodes set in the main characters' minds. In 1997, Gainax launched a project to re-adapt Evangelion's scrapped ending into a feature-length film. Once again, budgeting issues left the film unfinished, the completed 27 minutes of animation were included as the second act of Evangelion: Death and Rebirth. In response, Anno received several letters both of encouragement and criticism, including death threats and letters of disappointment from fans who thought Anno had ruined the series for them; the project culminated in The End of Evangelion, a three-act film that served as a finale to Neon Genesis Evangelion. In September 1999, Anno appeared on the NHK TV-documentary "Welcome Back for an Extracurricular Lesson, Senpai!", answering some Evangelion-related questions, including the origin of the name Evangelion, teaching children about animation production.

On April 15, 2015, Anno spoke about his feelings regarding Rei. He claimed: "The truth is. In the midst of making Eva, I realized that I had forgotten her, her existence. For example, in episode seven, I added one shot with Rei. I had no attachment to her at all. I think, okay, because in episode eight, she didn't appear. Not in a single shot." After Evangelion, Anno directed the 1998 anime series Kareshi Kanojo no Jijō, the first Gainax television series to be directly adapted from previously-written material. During the production of Kare Kano, Anno became frustrated with the restrictions placed on the show by TV Tokyo after the Pokémon seizure incident and has not directed television anime since then; the director has made forays into live-action films, beginning with Lo
