I didn’t have anything else to do” (Salinger 61). He had no one to spend time with so he had nothing to do. The lyrics “Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days/and the people I meet always go their separate ways/Sometimes you tell the day/by the bottle that you drink/and times when you're alone all you do is think” (Bon Jovi) from the song “Wanted Dead or Alive” fits Holden’s character very well. The song is about how he is when he’s alone he thinks and his relationships never last and how he drinks to forget everything. This is very much accordant to Holden’s character in the sense that he is alone through most of the book and he is quite the alcoholic.
Although he took his punishment in prison, 12 years. Another example of the fact he did not think about himself, is when the assistant who spoke with Joe on the terrace, said Alistair's apartment was empty. It seemed cold and there was not much joy to see in it. Usually when people get apartments or houses, they fill it with pictures and memories. The apartment is their own place where you can often see a person's personality.
These words were spoken by a broke man alone in a New York hotel room that had only been living on milk and Nabisco crackers. His name was Nikola Tesla and he had invented alternating current, the radio, dreamed of supplying wireless power to the whole world and received honorary P.h.d’s from various universities across the world. Nikola Tesla was a wealthy man but his dreams weren’t about making a profit and that caused him to lose all of his money. Tesla held over valuble700 patents but he hardly ever forced people to pay him for his ideas. Nikola Tesla is not a well-known inventor because he, wasn’t focused on getting recognition, Thomas Edison pushed Nikola’s inventions out of the lime light., his inventions weren’t profitable or practical for the time and he also suffered from mental disorders.

The Godfather has been one of my favorite movies of all time. I have never read the book, only watched the movie. After reading the book, I see that there are many similarities and differences between the book and the movie. The book, by Mario Puzo, starts with the scene of Amerigo Bonasera in the court room where the two boys who beat up his daughter badly and tried to dishonor her were set free by the judge. The boys smiled at Amerigo Bonasera as they were leaving the court room free of any charges and left Amerigo Bonasera crying in the court room for not getting justice for his daughter.
However the neighbors did report that none of the members spoke to anyone in the neighborhood or had any interaction. It seemed that after Applewhite made his claim on national television that he was dying from cancer that his followers believed that after he died there was nothing else to live for on planet Earth. They believed that their bodies were simply carriages to get them to the next level in life. When Applewhite decided to perform the mass suicide using barbiturates and pudding, all of his followers did the same exact actions by ensuring the house was immaculate, their identities and press packages for the newspapers and news stations. Each member lied in their bunk with their hands crossed and glasses lay to their side with plastic bags over the faces.

The younger waiter is stumped by the fact that someone with a large sum of money would try to commit suicide, without taking into account the things that are transpiring in the old man’s life. The older waiter at least takes into account the fact that the old man is alone and without a job or pastime. When I was about eight years old I was beaten by my step-father, he was taken to jail and then bailed out, he was allowed x number of hours of community service and no contact until I am an adult. The next time I saw my mother after the fact she blamed me for everything and told me that because of me her marriage would never be the same.
Why he can make it because lots of investors lack financial knowledge. Also they won’t doubt about what the investment is as long as Madoff can make money for them. People didn’t know what is going on until Madoff can’t find any new investor to throw money in his schemes. After that, his schemes collapsed. In March 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies and admitted to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme but he never indicated the involvement of any other company employees or his family members.
