DePaul University is a private, Roman Catholic university in Chicago, Illinois. Founded by the Vincentians in 1898, the university takes its name from the 17th-century French priest Saint Vincent de Paul. In 1998, it became the largest Catholic university by enrollment in the United States. In 2018 it was still considered nation's largest Catholic university. Following in the footsteps of its founders, DePaul places special emphasis on recruiting first-generation students and others from disadvantaged backgrounds. DePaul's two campuses are located in the Loop; the Lincoln Park Campus is home to the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and Health, Education. It houses the School of Music, the Theatre School, the John T. Richardson Library; the Loop campus houses the Colleges of Communication and Digital Media, Law, as well as the School of Public Service and the School for New Learning. It is home to the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, part of the nationally ranked Driehaus College of Business, the tenth oldest business school in the nation.
The Loop campus houses the Loop Library, the Rinn Law Library, the Barnes and Noble-based Student Center. The university enrolls around 16,000 undergraduate and about 7,600 graduate/law students, making DePaul the 13th largest private university by enrollment in the United States, the largest private university in Illinois. According to the Division of Student Affairs website, about 90% of DePaul's students commute or live off campus; the student body represents a wide array of religious and geographic backgrounds, including over 60 foreign countries. DePaul's intercollegiate athletic teams, known as the DePaul Blue Demons, compete in the Big East Conference. DePaul's men's basketball team has made 18 NCAA tournament appearances and appeared in two Final Fours. Named St. Vincent's College, DePaul University was founded in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission priests and brothers, known as the Vincentians. Followers of 17th-century French priest Saint Vincent de Paul, they founded the university to serve Roman Catholic children of immigrants.
Student enrollment grew from 70 in 1898 to 200 in 1903 in what is now the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. In that year, James Quigley, Archbishop of Chicago, announced plans to create a preparatory seminary, now Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary, for the archdiocese and allow the Jesuit Saint Ignatius College, now Loyola University Chicago to move its collegiate programs to the north side, threatening St. Vincent College's survival. In response, the Vincentians re-chartered in 1907 as DePaul University, expressly offering all of its courses of study to men and women of any religious background. DePaul began admitting women in 1911 and awarded degrees to its first female graduates in 1912, it was one of the first Catholic universities to admit female students in a co-educational setting. DePaul established the School of Music and the College of Commerce, the latter becoming one of the oldest business schools in the nation. In 1914, the College began offering courses in Chicago's Loop, the precursor of DePaul's second primary campus.
In 1915, the Illinois College of Law completed its affiliation with the university and became the DePaul University College of Law. Enrollment totaled more than 1,100. Although finances were rocky, the university continued to build in the 1920s. In 1926, the university was first accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities; when DePaul's first sports teams were formed in the early 1900s, the monogram "D" was selected for the uniforms. From this originated the nickname "D-men" which evolved into "Demons"; the color blue, which signifies loyalty and was chosen in 1901 by a vote of the student body, was added to the name to create the "Blue Demons". By 1930 more than 5,000 students were enrolled in eight schools on two campuses; the Great Depression led to fluctuations in enrollment and tuition as well as cutbacks, including elimination of the football team in 1939. In 1938, the Department of Elementary Education was established the only one in the Midwest and one of six in the United States.
With the entry of the United States into World War I in 1918, DePaul formed a unit of the US Army Reserve Officer Training Corps and converted its College Theatre into Army barracks. DePaul mobilized for World War II, offering its facilities for war training and free courses to train people for industry work; the G. I. Bill, which paid the tuition of veterans enrolled in college, turned the financial tide for DePaul. Enrollment in 1945 skyrocketed to 8,857 students, twice as many as the previous year, totaled more than 11,000 in 1948. Although a consulting firm recommended relocating from its deteriorating Lincoln Park neighborhood to the suburbs, trustees voted to remain and support revitalization of the neighborhood. In 1942, DePaul named Ray Meyer as head basketball coach. Meyer coached for DePaul until he retired in 1984, leading the 1945 team to the championship of the National Invitation Tournament and earning numerous honors, including election to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979, the fourth active coach to be so honored.
The university would go on to honor Ray Meyer by naming their fitness center after him. In 1954, DePaul adopted its current armorial seal with coat of arms and motto: "Viam sapientiae monstrabo tibi". In 1955, the Frank J. Lewis Foundation donated the 18-story Kimball Building, rechristened the Lewis Center, at 25 East Jackson Boulevard, to the university; the building, still used today, was the hub of the Loop campus until 1993, when the DePaul Center opened at 1 East Jackson Boulevard (at State Str

When Trumpets Fade
When Trumpets Fade is a 1998 HBO war film directed by John Irvin and starring Ron Eldard, Frank Whaley, Zak Orth, Dylan Bruno. First presented on June 27, 1998, it was produced by John Kemeny, written by W. W. Vought, it is set during the World War II Battle of Hürtgen Forest, in the autumn of 1944. The film portrays the actions of an American soldier, David Manning, during the World War II Battle of Hürtgen Forest, between the United States Army and German Wehrmacht, on the Western Front, from September 14, 1944 to February 10, 1945. Private David Manning is a soldier in the 28th Infantry Division who, in order to survive, does just enough to stay out of trouble but not enough to make a difference. Through the sheer bloodiness of the Hürtgen battles, Manning is left as the sole survivor of his platoon, he is promoted to sergeant. He tries to get out of it, saying he is unqualified for the position, but his company commander, Captain Roy Pritchett, thinks otherwise. Manning tries to back out of responsibility by asking to be filed on a Section 8, but is refused.
Leading a squad of replacements on the front line is a prospect he is less than thrilled with. He meets with his new men, during the evening, leads them into position on the line; the next morning, on patrol with his squad, Manning puts Private Warren Sanderson on point. Sanderson goes forward too gets separated from the squad, narrowly avoids contact with the enemy. After some time, Manning decides. At that moment, Sanderson returns. After the incident, Manning is scorned by his peers and berated by his platoon leader, First Lieutenant Terrence Lukas. Manning's company makes a push toward the town of Schmidt, to hold a bridge. However, they are shelled by 88 mm guns, they retreat, Pritchett comes to Manning with a mission that he requires volunteers for. Manning wishes him luck, so Pritchett offers Manning a Section 8 if he volunteers for and succeeds on the mission. During the mission, one of Manning's men, Private Sam Baxter and starts to flee, the other men follow suit. To stop them, Manning shoots Baxter, hitting the flamethrower he is carrying on his back, which causes it to explode and burn him to death.
Although the rest of his men are horrified by this, they stop fleeing and assault the position where the two 88s are located. Led by a crazed Sanderson, armed with another flamethrower, the group succeeds in destroying the dreaded guns. Manning's company secures the bridge after suffering horrendous casualties, but soon get attacked by German tanks. In the assault, Lukas is overcome with stress. Sergeant Patrick Talbot gives him a handful of dog tags from the dead soldiers in their platoon. Manning, Sanderson and Despin attempt to escape from the attacking Germans. Lonnie is killed, Despin is captured by the Germans. Manning and Sanderson escape, but Pritchett, who has survived the ordeal but cracked under pressure during the mission, is ordered off the lines before he can uphold his promise to Manning; when the battalion commander, Lieutenant Colonel George Rickman and asks him about the status of his platoon, a traumatized Lukas snaps and assaults him. Manning confronts Rickman as the howling Lukas is led away, picks up the mass of blood-soaked dog tags Lukas dropped, presses them against Rickman's chest as his answer to the platoon's status.
Because of Manning's insubordination, Rickman recognises him and orders him to the command post. He subsequently gives him command of the platoon. After an altercation with Talbot and Manning's friend, Corporal Toby Chamberlain, the platoon medic, in which they confront Manning for shooting Baxter, Manning tells them of a plan to destroy the German tanks the night before the assault. Chamberlain states they have no proof as he did Baxter. Private Sanderson, who survived the retreat back to American lines, defends Manning's conduct by acknowledging the fact that everybody would have run instead of fighting had Manning not shot Baxter. Manning silences them by telling them that the battalion is making another push in the morning, anyway. If they don't knock out the tanks, he knows the entire battalion - themselves included - are in jeopardy. Manning leads Sergeant Talbot, Corporal Chamberlain, Private Sanderson in a pre-dawn raid on the German tanks, without the knowledge or support of the battalion.
Manning clears the minefield and cuts the wire, enabling the group to continue on, before they engage the German tanks with a bazooka. The operation costs the lives of all but Manning and Sanderson, although Manning is wounded, but the tanks are destroyed just as the rest of the battalion begins their advance; the film concludes with the rapidly-fading Manning being carried back to the American lines by the now battle-hardened Sanderson, who assures Manning that he can now go home. This forms a mirror image of Manning carrying a wounded comrade at the opening of the film. Manning appears to die; the film closes with a note that the bloody Battle of the Hürtgen Forest was overshadowed by the Battle of the Bulge soon afterward.

In January 2011, the network placed a pilot order. Casting announcements began in mid-February, with Leelee Sobieski being cast as Jennifer Perry, one of the rookies. Next to board the project were Judy Marte, Tom Reed, Stark Sands, who all portray rookie cops. Adam Goldberg joined the cast a week as a former reporter turned rookie cop. Terry Kinney signed on in mid-March as the field training officer for the rookies. CBS green-lighted production of the series in May 2011 under the new title The 2-2, but the name was changed again when the network announced that the series would premiere on April 15, 2012, as NYC 22. NYC 22 took over the timeslot of CSI: Miami, which had its season shortened to make room for the new drama.

Monogamy is a form of relationship in which an individual has only one partner during their lifetime — alternately, only one partner at any one time — as compared to non-monogamy. The term is applied to the social behavior of some animals, referring to the state of having only one mate at any one time; the word monogamy derives from the Greek μονός, γάμος, gamos. The term "monogamy" may be referring depending upon context. There are four overlapping definitions. Marital monogamy refers to marriages of only two people. Social monogamy refers to two partners living together, having sex with each other, cooperating in acquiring basic resources such as shelter and money. Sexual monogamy refers to two partners remaining sexually exclusive with each other and having no outside sex partners. Genetic monogamy refers to sexually monogamous relationships with genetic evidence of paternity. For instance, biological anthropologists, behavioral ecologists use monogamy in the sense of sexual, if not genetic, exclusivity.
When cultural or social anthropologists and other social scientists use the term monogamy, the meaning is social or marital monogamy. Marital monogamy may be further distinguished between: classical monogamy, "a single relationship between people who marry as virgins, remain sexually exclusive their entire lives, become celibate upon the death of the partner" serial monogamy, marriage with only one other person at a time, in contrast to bigamy or polygamy. However, this does not take into account the relative population of each of the societies studied, the actual practice of polygamy in a tolerant society may be low, with the majority of aspirant polygamists practicing monogamous marriage. Divorce and remarriage can thus result in "serial monogamy", i.e. multiple marriages but only one legal spouse at a time. This can be interpreted as a form of plural mating, as are those societies dominated by female-headed families in the Caribbean and Brazil where there is frequent rotation of unmarried partners.
In all, these account for 16 to 24% of the "monogamous" category. The prevalence of sexual monogamy can be estimated as the percentage of married people who do not engage in extramarital sex; the Standard Cross-Cultural Sample describes the amount of extramarital sex by men and women in over 50 pre-industrial cultures. The amount of extramarital sex by men is described as "universal" in 6 cultures, "moderate" in 29 cultures, "occasional" in 6 cultures, "uncommon" in 10 cultures; the amount of extramarital sex by women is described as "universal" in 6 cultures, "moderate" in 23 cultures, "occasional" in 9 cultures, "uncommon" in 15 cultures. These findings support the claim that the reported amount of extramarital sex differs across cultures and across genders. Surveys conducted in non-Western nations found cultural and gender differences in extramarital sex. A study of sexual behavior in Thailand, Tanzania and Côte d'Ivoire suggests about 16–34% of men engage in extramarital sex while a much smaller percentage of women engage in extramarital sex.
Studies in Nigeria have found around 47–53% of men and to 18–36% of women engage in extramarital sex. A 1999 survey of married and cohabiting couples in Zimbabwe reports that 38% of men and 13% of women engaged in extra-couple sexual relationships within the last 12 months. Many surveys asking about extramarital sex in the United States have relied on convenience samples: surveys given to whoever happens to be available. Convenience samples do not reflect the population of the United States as a whole, which can cause serious biases in survey results, it should not be surprising, that surveys of extramarital sex in the United States have produced differing results. These studies reported that 12–26% of married women and 15–43% of married men engaged in extramarital sex; the only way to get scientifically reliable estimates of extramarital sex is to use nationally representative samples. Three studies have used nationally representative samples; these studies found that about 10 -- 15 % of 20 -- 25 % of men engage in extramarital sex.
Research by Colleen Hoffon of 566 homosexual male couples from the San Francisco Bay Area found that 45% had monogamous relationships. However, the Human Rights Campaign has stated, based on a Rockway Institute report, that "GLBT young people… want to spend their adult life in a long-term relationship raising children." Over 80% of the homosexuals surveyed expected to be in a monogamous relationship after age 30. The incidence of genetic monogamy may be estimated from rates of extrapair paternity. Extrapair paternity is when offspring raised by a monogamous pair come from the female mating with another male. Rates of extrapair paternity have not been extensively studied in people. Many reports of extrapair paternity are little more than quotes based on hearsay and unpublished findings. Simmons, Firman and Peters reviewed 11 published studies of extra-pair paternity from various locations in the United States, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and among the native Yanomami Indians of Amazon forest in South America.
The rates of extrapair paternity ranged from 0.03% to 11.8% although most of the locations had low percentages of extrapair paternity. The median rate of ext
The National Broadcasting Company is an American English-language commercial terrestrial television network, a flagship property of NBCUniversal, a subsidiary of Comcast. The network is headquartered at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, with additional major offices near Los Angeles and Philadelphia; the network is one of the Big Three television networks. NBC is sometimes referred to as the "Peacock Network", in reference to its stylized peacock logo, introduced in 1956 to promote the company's innovations in early color broadcasting, it became the network's official emblem in 1979. Founded in 1926 by the Radio Corporation of America, NBC is the oldest major broadcast network in the United States. At that time the parent company of RCA was General Electric. In 1930, GE was forced to sell the companies as a result of antitrust charges. In 1986, control of NBC passed back to General Electric through its $6.4 billion purchase of RCA. Following the acquisition by GE, Bob Wright served as chief executive officer of NBC, remaining in that position until his retirement in 2007, when he was succeeded by Jeff Zucker.
In 2003, French media company Vivendi merged its entertainment assets with GE, forming NBC Universal. Comcast purchased a controlling interest in the company in 2011, acquired General Electric's remaining stake in 2013. Following the Comcast merger, Zucker left NBCUniversal and was replaced as CEO by Comcast executive Steve Burke. NBC has thirteen owned-and-operated stations and nearly 200 affiliates throughout the United States and its territories, some of which are available in Canada and/or Mexico via pay-television providers or in border areas over-the-air. During a period of early broadcast business consolidation, radio manufacturer Radio Corporation of America acquired New York City radio station WEAF from American Telephone & Telegraph. Westinghouse, a shareholder in RCA, had a competing outlet in Newark, New Jersey pioneer station WJZ, which served as the flagship for a loosely structured network; this station was transferred from Westinghouse to RCA in 1923, moved to New York City. WEAF acted as a laboratory for AT&T's manufacturing and supply outlet Western Electric, whose products included transmitters and antennas.
The Bell System, AT&T's telephone utility, was developing technologies to transmit voice- and music-grade audio over short and long distances, using both wireless and wired methods. The 1922 creation of WEAF offered a research-and-development center for those activities. WEAF maintained a regular schedule of radio programs, including some of the first commercially sponsored programs, was an immediate success. In an early example of "chain" or "networking" broadcasting, the station linked with Outlet Company-owned WJAR in Providence, Rhode Island. C. WCAP. New parent RCA saw an advantage in sharing programming, after getting a license for radio station WRC in Washington, D. C. in 1923, attempted to transmit audio between cities via low-quality telegraph lines. AT&T refused outside companies access to its high-quality phone lines; the early effort fared poorly, since the uninsulated telegraph lines were susceptible to atmospheric and other electrical interference. In 1925, AT&T decided that WEAF and its embryonic network were incompatible with the company's primary goal of providing a telephone service.
AT&T offered to sell the station to RCA in a deal that included the right to lease AT&T's phone lines for network transmission. RCA spent $1 million to purchase WEAF and Washington sister station WCAP, shut down the latter station, merged its facilities with surviving station WRC; the division's ownership was split among RCA, its founding corporate parent General Electric and Westinghouse. NBC started broadcasting on November 15, 1926. WEAF and WJZ, the flagships of the two earlier networks, were operated side-by-side for about a year as part of the new NBC. On January 1, 1927, NBC formally divided their respective marketing strategies: the "Red Network" offered commercially sponsored entertainment and music programming. Various histories of NBC suggest the color designations for the two networks came from the color of the pushpins NBC engineers used to designate affiliate stations of WEAF and WJZ, or from the use of double-ended red and blue colored pencils. On April 5, 1927, NBC expanded to the West Coast with the launch of the NBC Orange Network known as the Pacific Coast Network.
This was followed by the debut of the NBC Gold Network known as the Pacific Gold Network, on October 18, 1931. The Orange Network carried Red Network programming, the Gold Network carried programming from the Blue Network; the Orange Network recreated Eastern Red Network programming for West Coast stations at KPO in San Francisco. In 1936, the Orange Network affiliate stations became part of the Red Network, at the same time the Gold Network became part of the Blue Network. In the 1930s, NBC developed a network for shortwave radio stations, called the NBC White Network. In 1927, NBC moved its operations to 711 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, occupying the upper floors of a building de
