William Harrison Ainsworth

William Harrison Ainsworth was an English historical novelist born at King Street in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature, his first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Ainsworth died in Reigate on 3 January 1882, was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery. Ainsworth was born on 4 February 1805 in the family house at 21 King Street, Manchester, to Thomas Ainsworth, a prominent Manchester lawyer, Ann Ainsworth, the daughter of the Rev. Ralph Harrison, the Unitarian minister at Manchester Cross Street Chapel. On 4 October 1806, Thomas Gilbert Ainsworth, was born.

Although the family home was destroyed, it was a three-storey Georgian home in a well-to-do community. The area influenced Ainsworth with its historical and romantic atmosphere, which existed until the community was replaced by commercial buildings. Besides the community, Ainsworth read romantic works as a child and enjoyed stories dealing with either adventure or supernatural themes. Of these, Dick Turpin was a favourite of Ainsworth. During his childhood, he adopted Jacobean ideas and held Tory ideas in addition to his Jacobite sympathies though his community was strict Whig and Nonconformist. During this time, Ainsworth began to write prolifically; the Ainsworth family moved to Smedly Lane, north of Manchester in Cheetham Hill, during 1811. They resided in the new home most of the time; the surrounding hilly country was covered in woods, which allowed Ainsworth and his brother to act out various stories. When not playing, Ainsworth was tutored by William Harrison. In March 1817, he was enrolled at Manchester Grammar School, described in his novel Mervyn Clitheroe.

The work emphasised that his classical education was of good quality but was reinforced with strict discipline and corporal punishment. Ainsworth was popular among his fellow students, his school days were mixed. Ainsworth was connected to the event because his uncles joined in protest at the incident, but Ainsworth was able to avoid most of the political after-effects. During the time, he was able to pursue his own literary interests and created his own little theatre within the family home at King Street. Along with his friends and brother, he created and acted in many plays throughout 1820. During 1820, Ainsworth began to publish many of his works under the name "Thomas Hall"; the first work, a play called The Rivals, was published on 5 March 1821 in Arliss's Pocket Magazine. Throughout 1821, the magazine printed seventeen other works of Ainsworth's under the names "Thomas Hall", "H A" or "W A"; the genre and forms of the work varied, with one being a claim to have found plays of a 17th-century playwright "William Aynesworthe", which ended up being his own works.

This trick was exposed. In December 1821, Ainsworth submitted his play Venice, or the Fall of the Foscaris to The Edinburgh Magazine, they printed large excerpts from the play before praising Ainsworth as a playwright as someone that rivalled George Gordon Byron. During this time, Ainsworth was contributing works to The European Magazine in addition to the other magazines, they published many of his early stories, he left Manchester Grammar School in 1822 while contributing to magazines. After leaving school, Ainsworth worked under Alexander Kay; the two did not get along, Ainsworth was accused of being lazy. Although Ainsworth did not want to pursue a legal career, his father pushed him into the field. Instead of working, Ainsworth spent his time reading literature at his home and various libraries, including the Chetham Library, he continued to work as an attorney in Manchester and spent his time when not working or reading at the John Shaw's Club. By the end of 1822, Ainsworth was writing for The London Magazine, which allowed him to become close to Charles Lamb, to whom he sent poetry for Lamb's response.

After receiving a favourable reception for one set of works, Ainsworth had them published by John Arliss as Poems by Cheviot Ticheburn. He travelled some during 1822, visited his childhood friend James Crossley in Edinburgh during August. There, Crossley introduced Ainsworth to William Blackwood, the owner of Blackwood's Magazine, through Blackwood, he was introduced to many Scottish writers. Besides Crossley, another close friend to Ainsworth was John Aston, a clerk who worked in his father's legal firm. In 1823, Ainsworth and Crossley began to write many works together, including the first novel Sir John Chiverton, based around Hulme Hall in Manchester. Ainsworth wrote to Thomas Campbell, editor of The New Monthly Magazine, about publishing the work: but Campbell lost the letter. At the request of Ainsworth, Crossley travelled to London to meet Campbell and discuss the matter before visiting in November. Although the novel was not yet published, in December 1823, Ainsworth was able to get G. and W. Whittaker to publish a collection of his stories as December Tales.

During 1824, Ainsworth set about producing his

Tanniemola Liverpool is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Bristol. Liverpool was born in London to parents from Sierra Leone, his father, Lennox Liverpool has a PhD in Mathematics and taught at the University of Jos. He went to school at the Liverpool Blue Coat School, he studied physics at Trinity Hall, graduating in 1991. He completed his doctoral studies, "A Stochastic Approach to Describing Geological Systems" at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Sam Edwards in 1995. Whilst at Cambridge he was part of a Group to Encourage Ethnic Minority Applicants. Liverpool studies the role of hydrodynamic interactions in the collective behaviour of particles in a fluid, he observed that swimming bacteria and spermatozoa could be described as "living liquid crystals". By understanding the movement of artificial'swimmers' in soft matter, he hopes to design new cancer treatments. After his PhD, Liverpool joined University of Cologne as a postdoctoral researcher. Liverpool was awarded a Royal Society Research Fellowship in 2000.

He joined the University of Leeds. Liverpool works at the University of Bristol in the Centre for Synthetic Biology, he studies the self-assembly of protein building blocks. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Theoretical Biology, he is the chair of the Institute of Complex Physics group. He is part of several initiatives to improve diversity within the physics and mathematics communities, he was selected as one of several outstanding scientists to be featured in the book "Science, Not Art: Ten Scientists' Diaries"
