The Yellow Kid

The Yellow Kid is an American comic strip character that appeared from 1895 to 1898 in Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, William Randolph Hearst's New York Journal. Created and drawn by Richard F. Outcault in the comic strip Hogan's Alley, it was one of the first Sunday supplement comic strips in an American newspaper, although its graphical layout had been established in political and other, purely-for-entertainment cartoons. Outcault's use of word balloons in the Yellow Kid influenced the basic appearance and use of balloons in subsequent newspaper comic strips and comic books; the Yellow Kid is famous for its connection to the coining of the term "yellow journalism." The idea of "yellow journalism" was the sensationalized stories for the sake of selling papers, named from the "Yellow Kid" cartoons. Although a cartoon, Outcault's work aimed its humor and social commentary at Pulitzer's adult readership; the strip has been described as "... a turn-of-the-century theater of the city, in which class and racial tensions of the new urban, consumerist environment were acted out by a mischievous group of New York City kids from the wrong side of the tracks."

Mickey Dugan, better known as The Yellow Kid, was a bald, snaggle-toothed barefoot boy who wore an oversized yellow nightshirt and hung around in a slum alley typical of certain areas of squalor that existed in late 19th-century New York City. Hogan's Alley was filled with odd characters other children. With a goofy grin, the Kid habitually spoke in a ragged, peculiar slang, printed on his shirt, a device meant to lampoon advertising billboards; the Yellow Kid's head was drawn wholly shaved as if having been ridden of lice, a common sight among children in New York's tenement ghettos at the time. His nightshirt, a hand-me-down from an older sister, was white or pale blue in the first color strips; the character who would become the Yellow Kid first appeared on the scene in a minor supporting role in a cartoon panel published in Truth magazine in 1894 and 1895. The four different black-and-white single panel cartoons were deemed popular, one of them, Fourth Ward Brownies, was reprinted on 17 February 1895 in Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, where Outcault worked as a technical drawing artist.

The World published another, newer Hogan's Alley cartoon less than a month and this was followed by the strip's first color printing on 5 May 1895. Hogan's Alley became a full-page Sunday color cartoon with the Yellow Kid as its lead character. In 1896 Outcault was hired away at a much higher salary to William Randolph Hearst's New York Journal American where he drew the Yellow Kid in a new full-page color strip, violent and vulgar compared to his first panels for Truth magazine; because Outcault failed in his attempt to copyright the Yellow Kid, Pulitzer was able to hire George Luks to continue drawing the original version of the strip for the World and hence the Yellow Kid appeared in two competing papers for about a year. Luks's version of the Yellow Kid introduced a pair of twins and George dressed in yellow nightshirts. Outcault produced three subsequent series of Yellow Kid strips at the Journal American, each lasting no more than four months: McFadden's Row of Flats Around the World with the Yellow Kid – a strip that sent the Kid on a world tour in the manner of Nellie Bly A half-page strip which adopted the title Ryan's Arcade.

Publication of both versions stopped abruptly after only three years in early 1898, as circulation wars between the rival papers dwindled. Moreover, Outcault may have lost interest in the character when he realized he couldn't retain exclusive commercial control over it; the Yellow Kid's last appearance is most noted as 23 January 1898 in a strip about hair tonic. On 1 May 1898, the character was featured in a rather satirical cartoon called Casey Corner Kids Dime Museum but he was drawn as a bearded, balding old man wearing a green nightshirt which bore the words: "Gosh I've growed old in making dis collection."The Yellow Kid appeared now and in Outcault's cartoon strips, most notably Buster Brown. The two newspapers which ran the Yellow Kid, Pulitzer's World and Hearst's Journal American became known as the yellow kid papers; this was contracted to the yellow papers and the term yellow kid journalism was at last shortened to yellow journalism, describing the two newspapers' editorial practices of taking sensationalism and profit as priorities in journalism.

The Yellow Kid's image was an early example of lucrative merchandising and appeared on mass market retail objects in the greater New York City area such as "billboards, cigarette packs, cracker tins, ladies' fans, postcards, chewing gum cards, toys and many other products". With the Yellow Kid's merchandising success as an advertising icon, the strip came to represent the crass commercial world it had lampooned. Entertainment entrepreneur Gus Hill staged vaudeville plays based on the comic strip, his version of McFadden's Flats was made into films in 1927 and 1935. The Yellow Kid made an appearance in the Marvel Universe in the Joss Whedon-written Runaways story. In this take on the character, he exhibits superhuman powers. In the Ziggy of February 16, 1990, Ziggy points to a smiling old man seated next to him on a park bench and says, "No kidding... You were The Yellow Kid!"

Inferiority complex

An inferiority complex consists of feelings of not measuring up to standards, a doubt and uncertainty about oneself, a lack of self-esteem. It is subconscious and is thought to drive afflicted individuals to overcompensate, resulting either in spectacular achievement or asocial behavior. In modern literature, the preferred terminology is "lack of covert self-esteem". Stemming from the psychoanalytic branch of psychology, the idea first appeared among many of Sigmund Freud's works and in the work of his colleague Carl Jung. Alfred Adler, founder of classical Adlerian psychology, held that many neurolytic symptoms could be traced to overcompensation for this feeling; the use of the term complex now is used to denote the group of toned ideas. The counterpart of an inferiority complex, a "superiority complex", is a psychological defense mechanism in which a person's feelings of superiority counter or conceal their feelings of inferiority. An inferiority complex occurs when the feelings of inferiority are intensified in the individual through discouragement or failure.

Those who are at risk for developing a complex include people who: show signs of low self-esteem or self-worth, have low socioeconomic status, or have a history of depression symptoms. Children reared in households where they were criticized or did not live up to parents' expectations may develop an inferiority complex. Many times there are warning signs to someone who may be more prone to developing an inferiority complex. For example, someone, prone to attention and approval-seeking behaviors may be more susceptible. According to Classical Adlerian psychology the second inferiority feeling results when adults feel inadequate from desires to achieve an unobtainable or unrealistic result, "The need for perfection." Stresses associated with feelings of failure and inferiority cause a pessimistic attitude and an inability to overcome difficulties in life. According to Adler, "Everyone has a feeling of inferiority, but the feeling of inferiority is not a disease. It becomes a pathological condition only when the sense of inadequacy overwhelms the individual and, far from stimulating him to useful activity, makes him depressed and incapable of development."

Classical Adlerian psychology makes a distinction between primary and secondary inferiority feelings. A primary inferiority feeling is said to be rooted in the young child's original experience of weakness and dependency, it can be intensified by comparisons to siblings, romantic partners, adults. A secondary inferiority feeling relates to an adult's experience of being unable to reach a subconscious, reassuring fictional final goal of subjective security and success to compensate for the inferiority feelings; the perceived distance from that reassuring goal would lead to a negative/depressed feeling that could prompt the recall of the original inferiority feeling. The reassuring goal invented to relieve the original, primary feeling of inferiority which causes the secondary feeling of inferiority is the "catch-22" of this dilemma. Desperate attempts to obtain therapeutic reassurance and delivery from a depressing feeling of inferiority and worthlessness may fail; this vicious cycle is common in neurotic lifestyles.

When an inferiority complex is in full effect, it may impact the performance of an individual as well as impact an individual's self-esteem. Unconscious psychological and emotional processes can disrupt students’ cognitive learning, negatively “charged” feeling-toned memory associations can derail the learning process. Hutt found that math can become associated with a psychological inferiority complex, low motivation and self-efficacy, poor self-directed learning strategies, feeling unsafe or anxious. In the mental health treatment population, this characteristic is shown in patients with many disorders such as certain types of schizophrenia, mood disorders, personality disorders. Moritz found that people suffering from paranoid schizophrenia used their delusions as a defense mechanism against low implicit self-esteem. Alfred Adler identified an inferiority complex as one of the contributing factors to problem child behaviors. Individuals with increased inferiority feelings have a higher tendency toward self-concealment, which in turn results in an increase in loneliness and a decrease in happiness.

Eye (song)

"Eye" is a song by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released in 1997 on the soundtrack to the David Lynch film Lost Highway. Along with the song "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" from Batman & Robin and "Christmastime" from A Very Special Christmas 3, "Eye" represented a period of work on compilations done by the Pumpkins in between the release of the two albums Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and Adore, it appeared on their greatest hits collection Rotten Apples. This is their first song after the firing of their drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. In the aftermath of the quadruple-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Billy Corgan's music publisher suggested he collaborate with basketball superstar and rapper Shaquille O'Neal, who had begun work on You Can't Stop the Reign. Corgan began work on a programmed backing track loosely inspired by Dr. Dre, but the collaboration fell through. Meanwhile, film director David Lynch and Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor were assembling the soundtrack to Lynch's new film Lost Highway.

Lynch, who would call Corgan a "magical musician", rejected Corgan's submission, "Tear", which would be included on Adore. Corgan finished off "Eye" and Lynch loved it, using it in a nightclub scene in the film. An acoustic version of the song was performed in 1997 at the Bridge School Benefit concert; the performance featured Marilyn Manson. So far, "Eye" has been performed live by the band on their 1997, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2016 tours, opting for a guitar-driven sound with live drums in lieu of a drum machine, it has been played in their 2018 and 2019 tour with Jimmy Chamberlin. The song reached number eight on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1997. Corgan said the surprise success of "Eye" as a single inspired the band to continue with the new electronica-tinged direction as they began work on Adore

Kings Tableland

The Kings Tableland is a plateau, located in the Blue Mountains in Wollondilly Shire, New South Wales, Australia. The ridge is an eroded remnant of a sandstone layer, 1,000 metres AMSL, situated south of Wentworth Falls; the Tableland is the major southerly spur of the main spine of the Blue Mountains Range and forms the beginning of the Southern Escarpment, an unbroken series of tall sandstone cliffs which fringes the Jamison, Megalong and Hartley Valleys. Situated to the west of the locality of Blue Labyrinth, Kings Tableland extends from Bodington Hill south to McMahons Lookout, with views over Lake Burragorang, further about 4.8 kilometres. The plateau was named by Governor Macquarie after King George III, it is the eastern boundary of the Jamison Valley. There are views from several points along the ridge, accessed via paths breaking off the main fire trail; the ridgetop fire trail itself is accessible to 4WD and AWD vehicles in good weather conditions, is used as a mountain biking route.

Along the way is Battleship Tops, an aboriginal meeting place where ochre paintings could be seen, though these have been damaged by vandalism. A 2007 survey of the area found four rock shelters with several other sites. A portion of the Kings Tablelands has been gazetted as a camping and meeting place of significance for the Aboriginal Gandangara people; the conserved area includes a sandstone rock platform with extensive grinding and other grooves, a shelter with rock art, recorded as being the oldest Aboriginal site in the Blue Mountains region and containing unique vertically engraved depictions of kangaroo and bird tracks. A road from Wentworth Falls runs north and south along the plateau to the current lookout area of McMahons Point. Before the construction of Warragamba Dam the track continued down the escarpment along a track all the way to the Cox's River area in the Burragorang Valley. There is a track descending from the western edge down into the Jamison Valley leading to the old sewerage works below the cliffs at Katoomba.
