WHO SHOULD I START IN WEEK 2 AT TE-ROBERT ROYAL OR OWEN DANIELS?
Daniels. The Ravens will beat Houston since they are terrible and be forced to pass more since they will be coming from behind and their running game is a joke, whereas Buffalo is a solid team with a stud back in Lynch, so they will run more, And Edwards has Evans, Parrish, Hardy, etc to throw to other than Royal
He commanded the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland when I was a Hospital Corpsman on a ship home ported in Yokosuka, Japan. He had earlier served as commanding officer of Bethesda before it became the National Naval Medical Center. That tour was marked by the death of President Kennedy, whose autopsy was conducted at Bethesda.

Community Experiment in America (1825)
New Moral World, Owen's envisioned successor of New Harmony. Owenites fired bricks to build it, but construction never took place.
In 1825, such an experiment was attempted under the direction of his disciple, Abram Combe, at Orbiston near Glasgow; and in the next year Owen himself began another at New Harmony, Indiana, U.S., sold to him by George Rapp. After a trial of about two years both failed completely, due to Owen's lack of presence to govern either of the communities. Neither of them was a pauper experiment; but it must be said that the members were of the most motley description, many worthy people of the highest aims being mixed with vagrants, adventurers, and crotchety, wrongheaded enthusiasts, or in the words of Owen's son "a heterogeneous collection of radicals... honest latitudinarians, and lazy theorists, with a sprinkling of unprincipled sharpers thrown in."
Josiah Warren, who was one of the participants in the New Harmony Society, asserted that community was doomed to failure due to a lack of individual sovereignty and private property. He says of the community: "We had a world in miniature — we had enacted the French revolution over again with despairing hearts instead of corpses as a result. ...It appeared that it was nature's own inherent law of diversity that had conquered us ...our "united interests" were directly at war with the individualities of persons and circumstances and the instinct of self-preservation..." (Periodical Letter II 1856) Warren's observations on the reasons for the community's failure led to the development of American individualist anarchism, of which he was its original theorist. The Forestville Commonwealth Owenite community at Earlton, New York was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974
I'm sure Robert and Laura Wilson, Luke and Owen's parents would disagree. Isn't the first time (and won't be the last) Wikipedia has posted such nonsense.
Someone has 'vandalized' the article on Robert Redford and it has not been reported and edited out as of yet.
Robert Owen, the son of a saddler and ironmonger from Newtown in Wales, was born on 14th May, 1771. Robert was an intelligent boy who did very well at his local school, but at the age of ten, his father sent him to work in a large drapers in Stamford, Lincolnshire. After spending three years in Stamford, Robert moved to a drapers in London. This job lasted until 1787 and now aged sixteen, Robert found work at a large wholesale and retail drapery business in Manchester.
It was while Owen was working in Manchester that he heard about the success Richard Arkwright was having with his textile factory in Cromford. Richard was quick to see the potential of this way of manufacturing cloth and although he was only nineteen years old, borrowed £100 and set up a business as a manufacturer of spinning mules with John Jones, an engineer. In 1792 the partnership with Jones came to an end and Owen found work as a manager of Peter Drinkwater's large spinning factory in Manchester.
As manager of Drinkwater's factory, Owen met a lot of businessmen involved in the textile industry. This included David Dale, the owner of Chorton Twist Company in New Lanark, Scotland, the largest cotton-spinning business in Britain. The two men became close friends and in 1799 Robert married Dale's daughter, Caroline.
With the financial support of several businessmen from Manchester, Owen purchased Dale's four textile factories in New Lanark for £60,000. Under Owen's control, the Chorton Twist Company expanded rapidly. However, Robert Owen was not only concerned with making money, he was also interested in creating a new type of community at New Lanark. Owen believed that a person's character is formed by the effects of their environment. Owen was convinced that if he created the right environment, he could produce rational, good and humane people. Owen argued that people were naturally good but they were corrupted by the harsh way they were treated. For example, Owen was a strong opponent of physical punishment in schools and factories and immediately banned its use in New Lanark.
David Dale had originally built a large number of houses close to his factories in New Lanark. By the time Owen arrived, over 2,000 people lived in New Lanark village. One of the first decisions took when he became owner of New Lanark was to order the building of a school. Owen was convinced that education was crucially important in developing the type of person he wanted.
When Owen arrived at New Lanark children from as young as five were working for thirteen hours a day in the textile mills. He stopped employing children under ten and reduced their labour to ten hours a day. The young children went to the nursery and infant schools that Owen had built. Older children worked in the factory but also had to attend his secondary school for part of the day.
Owen's partners were concerned that these reforms would reduce profits. Unable to convince them of the wisdom of these reforms, Owen decided to borrow money from Archibald Campbell, a local banker, in order to buy their share of the business. Later, Owen sold shares in the business to men who agreed with the way he ran his factory.
Robert Owen hoped that the way he treated children at his New Lanark would encourage other factory owners to follow his example. It was therefore important for him to publicize his activities. He wrote several books including The Formation of Character (1813) and A New View of Society (1814). In 1815 Robert Owen sent detailed proposals to Parliament about his ideas on factory reform. This resulted in Owen appearing before Robert Peel and his House of Commons committee in April, 1816.
Robert Owen toured the country making speeches on his experiments at New Lanark. He also publishing his speeches as pamphlets and sent free copies to influential people in Britain. In one two month period he spent £4,000 publicizing his activities. In his speeches, Owen argued that he was creating a "new moral world, a world from which the bitterness of divisive sectarian religion would be banished". His criticisms of the Church of England upset many people, including reformers such as William Wilberforce and William Cobbett.
Disappointed with the response he received in Britain, Owen decided in 1825 to establish a new community in America based on the socialist ideas that he had developed over the years. Owen purchased an area of Indiana for £30,000 and called the community he established there, New Harmony. One of Owen's sons, Robert Dale Owen became the leader of the new community in America.
By 1827 Owen had lost interest in his New Lanark textile mills and decided to sell the business. His four sons and one of his daughters, Jane, moved to New Harmony and made it their permanent home but Owen decided to stay in England where he spent the rest of his life helping different reform groups. This included supporting organisations attempting to obtain factory reform, adult suffrage and the development of successful trade unions. He expressed his views in his journals, The Crisis and The New Moral World.
Owen also played an important role in establishing the Grand National Consolidated Trade Union in 1834 and the Association of All Classes and All Nations in 1835. Owen also attempted to form a new community at East Tytherly in Hampshire. However, like New Harmony in America, this experiment came to an end after disputes between members of the community. Although disillusioned with the failure of these communities and most of his political campaigns, Robert Owen continued to work for his "new moral order" until his death on 17th November, 1858.
In 1825, Robert Owen, a British industrialist, who believed in communal living, property held in common, and work that would not be drudgery but "of joyous work for the good of all," founded New Harmony, Indiana.
Try this from Wikipedia:
"His proposals for the treatment of poverty were based on these principles. Communities of about twelve hundred persons each should be settled on quantities of land from 5000 to 5500 acres (4 to 6 km²), all living in one large building in the form of a square, with public kitchen and mess-rooms. Each family should have its own private apartments and the entire care of the children till the age of three, after which they should be brought up by the community; their parents would have access to them at meals and all other proper times. He pursued to create a life of complete equality in regards to wages in which each person in the society (after the age of 15) would recieve according to their needs, much like a communism"
That would compare, for instance, to Plato's idea that the children should be taken away from their parents and trained for what was assumed to be their function in society outside of the home.
Owens' communities in the US failed because there is no way that a utopian society can really exist since the word "Utopia" literally means NO PLACE in Greek. There were many communities in the US, one of the most famous being New Harmony in SW Indiana, they all failed as have most utopian dreams.
what did robert owen think about industrialization?
Robert Owen was a social reformer and one of the founders of socialism and the cooperative movement. Owen's philosophy was based on three intellectual pillars:
1. no one was responsible for his will and his own actions, because his whole character is formed independently of himself; people are products of their environment, hence his support for education and labour reform, rendering him a pioneer in human capital investment.
2. all religions are based on the same absurd imagination, that make man a weak, imbecile animal; a furious bigot and fanatic; or a miserable hypocrite; (in dotage, he embraced spiritualism).
3. support for the putting-out system instead of the factory system.
His utopian community hoped to see a perfect community formed without use of money or personal possessions. Brook Farm, Indiana was never extremely successful however since there are always lazy people. That is why communism never works. There are always hard workers that provide for others and there are always lazy people who expect form others.
between karl marx and robert owen who should i like and why?
I would go with Owen because he was hands on and demonstrated he truly cared for the workers. Workers were not just a nebulous class in need of help from someone like Marx who spent all of his time in a library.
Very briefly. Karl Marx was a journalist, philosopher and social, political and economic theorist which all comes together in the 2-volume "Das Kapital' which essentially developes the theory and outlines the practice of communism.
He was not a major political activist although he was a leading figure in the International Workingmens' Association from 1864 to 1872.
In contrast, Robert Owen was an industrialist and social reformer who established model communities with enlightened working and social conditions and went on to found co-operative communities in Britain and the US. Later in life he founded a Trades Union and took up other causes including spiritualism.
Karl Marx could be said to have founded communism by his intellect, Robert Owen could be said to have founded the co-operative movement by his activism. Both were pioneers in their respective fields and their influence is still strong today.
Should schools teach students about Robert Owen and New Harmony Indiana?
No,that sounds like indoctrination not teaching. When I was in school many years ago,the indoctrination method was used extensively with younger children,but as I moved into the upper grade levels a much more open and questioning method was used. That open method provides a more stimulating and vibrant catalyst for real thinking and learning to take place. A good teacher doesn't feed students conclusions but allows student to arrive at their own interpretation of material with guidance in critical thinking skills.
Robert Owen endeavored to improve the health, education, well-being and rights of the working class.
Owen established this utopian colony in New Harmony which gained prominence as a cultural and scientific center and attracted many noted scientists, educators, and writers. Dissension arose, and in 1828 the community ceased to exist as a distinct enterprise, although the town remained an intellectual center. The nation's first kindergarten, first free public school, first free library, and first school with equal education for boys and girls were all established there. Some
What's Robert Owen's contribution to modern economics?
None that I can see.
He wrote that no one was responsible for his own will or his own actions because his whole character was determined by others.
This is utter nonsense, but apparently a couple hundred years ago, somebody listened to him.
Robert Owen wanted to create a Utopian society. Like a perfect world. Marx wanted communism. Basically a dictatorship that the dictator would make soung good. So they really just disagreed about how a country should be run
Robert Owen and the collapse of New Harmony, Indiana?
Hope these sites help.
here's tons of information,
cottontimes, historyguide, and faculty.evansville should have the most info on New Harmony.
Hope I could help.
Both were to an extent Utopians, only one was Socialist and the other was Communist (not in the Lenin/Stalin/Mao sense of the word). Owens started up many religious communes in the US that were supposed to be utopian societies. New Harmony, Indiana was just one of them, but it probably the most recognized. Rugby in Tennessee is another. All of them failed, as will all utopian societies. You can find the locations of many of them by looking for communities named Harmony, New Harmony, Providence and New Providence - but Providence RI is not one of them.
EDIT: you don't bench one of the elite wide receivers in the league right now, if not the greatest of all-time. you don't bench t.o. and randy moss period.
and how the hell is t.o. struggling? he has over 300 yards the past 2 games and scored in both games. are you retarded?
the other guy is a scrub who is no better than the 4th or 5th option on his team. marques colston, jeremy shockey, lance moore, devery henderson are all better fantasy options on that team. they have to spread the ball around. even more so when reggie bush comes back.
who was robert owen of lanark? ( something to do with the industrila working conditions)?
Robert Owen owned textile mills, but he was also a humanitarian, so he treated his workers very well, even giving them a free elementary school education. He did this and still made a profit, much to the consternation of other textile mill owners of the time, who simply couldn't believe that workers could be treated much better, and the business owner still make a profit. This was in the 1830's.Despite the evidence right in front of their faces, they refused to believe it.
Mr. Owen was also something of a Utopian. He bought a lot of acres in New Harmony, Indiana, where he tried to set up a utopian society. The members couldn't make his vision work, and it broke up as a Utopian community.
What was the commune established in New Harmony, Indiana by Scottish industrialist Robert Owen?
Robert Owen and his followers purchased the town of Harmonie in Posey County, Indiana, in 1825. They hoped to establish a model communal village, which they named New Harmony, where they tried to practice Owen's theories about cooperative living. The project failed and the town was dissolved in 1928. Historic New Harmony now contains a group of restored buildings and other landmarks.
The first American Utopias grew out of Robert Owen's attempt to create a model company town in New Lanark, Scotland. In the United States, Owen organized the New Harmony Community along the Wabash River in western Indiana in 1825. There the residents established a socialist community in which everyone was to share equally in labor and profit. Just months after the creation of a constitution in January 1826, the thousand residents at New Harmony divided into sub-communities that then disintegrated into chaos.
I'm not sure about the Massachusetts commune. It could be Brook Farm, a short-lived utopian experiment in communal living (1841 – 47) in West Roxbury, Mass. (near Boston), founded by George Ripley. The best known of the many utopian communities organized in the U.S. in the mid-19th century, Brook Farm was to combine the thinker and the worker, to guarantee the greatest mental freedom, and to prepare a society of liberal, cultivated persons whose lives would be more wholesome and simpler than they could be amid the pressure of competitive institutions. It is remembered for the distinguished literary figures and intellectual leaders associated with it, including Charles A. Dana, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, Horace Greeley, James Russell Lowell, John Greenleaf Whittier, and Ralph Waldo Emerson (though not all of them were actual members). It was also noted for the modern educational theory of its excellent school.
What was the role of Thomas Malthus and Robert Owen in the industrial revolution?
Robert Owen belonged to a family engaged in the ownership of production facilities. He saw how the Industrial Revolution had some ill effects on families and society in general and worked at policies which would provide a 'social safety net' for those suffering the most.
Thomas Malthus was a utilitarian philosopher who concerned himself with the concept of over-population and the belief that those who were impoverished either deserved to be due to indolence or because they were less valuable human beings.
You may want to read about D. Ricardo and Friedrich Engels to gain some more insight into these individuals.
Should I start Robert Meachem or Terrell Owens in Fantasy Football?
HAH Robert Meachem. Im a Bill's fan, i know Terrell won't have a big game against the Chiefs. Although they have a very vulnerable secondary, Terrell Owens will not get the ball early as Feweel will insist on running the ball on their weak defensive line. This will cause Owens to become Aggravated, and show his only thing that he's consistant on: His lack of care when the game goes on. Expect Meachem to have around 80 or 90, but Owens only around 40. :)
why were the ideas of robert owen and karl marx popular among the working class?
Well I believe that the pure idea of communism and all that is that everyone is equal and has a role to play within society - that there is no elite.
But it never works out like that due to mass corruption and greed.
Who was Robert Owen and what did he invent during the industrial revolution?
Robert Owen revolutionized the industry by helping ease labor and use of children in labor and creating a fair employment standard in England and Britain.
A point of irony was that the poet Jeremy Bentham was his sponsor one of many, and as you know the name Jeremy Bentham was used by John Locke in the series LOST as a joke. If you follow Lost that is.
What solutions did Robert Owen propose to solve the negative effects of the Industrial Revolution?
Robert Owen objected to the way machines were replacing human labor in the Industrial Revolution, among other things. He proposed a broadly aimed set of solutions for what he percieved to be a growing problem. They included such idealistic propositions as "get rid of religious intolerance and war," but also included more focused points such as limiting the hours of work per day, disallowing children from the workforce, requiring more structure in the educational system and more training for teachers, and revising the Poor Laws. He was unsuccessful in bringing about social change in England, despite a campaign of leaflets.
How do I tell if i have Robert Owen painting or print ? How do I find the value?
A print would probably be on paper and look completely flat.
Original paintings are more likely to be on canvas and would have some degree of surface texture.
Robert Owen prints sell on ebay for $10 to $40.
An original painting is for sale here at $4500.
You should take this picture to a reputable auctioneer or gallery for appraisal.
I would start Meachem over TO in week 1 because bottom line is that TO has not proven himself to even be a decent WR in recent years and nobody knows exactly how he is going to fit in Cincy with Ochocinco and he hasn't built any chemistry with Carson Palmer. Plus Meachem didn't catch a ton of passes last year, but he was a TD magnet and is the safer pick until TO proves himself.
What were some of Robert Owen's reforms? Did they have a lasting impact on society? How so?
Robert Dale Owen, maybe? (1801-1877). Son of Robert Owen? A politician in the Democrat Party?
This guy was born in Scotland and emigrated to the U*S in 1825 and helped his father create the Utopian community of New Harmony, Indiana (yes, it did fail) so he returned briefly to Europe and then moved to New York City and was editor of the Free Enquirer from 1828-1832.
His book Moral Physiology published in 1830 or 1831 was th first book to advocate birth control in the U.S. In 1833 he returned to New Harmony and served in the House as an Indiana Representive (1843-1847). He drafted the bill founding the Smithsonian Institution..
He was a strong believer of Spiritualism and authored two books on it "Footfall on the Boundary of Another World (1859) and The Debatable Land Between This World and the Next (1872). This, despite admitting he was duped into believing in a spirit named "Katie King."
Owen died at his summer home in Lake George, NY and was buried in New Harmony, Indiana. The town Dale, Indiana is named after him.
What did Robert owen did for the industrial revolution? and Mary Wollstoncraft?
Robert Dale Owen fought for emancipation of slaves and he also fought for workers rights. He thus advocated for fair wages and a healthier work environment for those labouring in factory settings.
Wollstonecraft, was a political reformer believing in human rights and dignity. She was a member of the 'English Jacobins'.
Does anyone know about the clown painting artist named Robert Owens?I?
Hi! Robert Owen was born in Polk County, Missouri on September 2, 1930. He was ninth of ten children.
He has been painting for 35 years professionally. For 30 of those years he has been delighting people with his clowns.
His website domain is for sale, which give me cause for concern, however many other sites sell his paintings and prints.
Here is a link to some of his past artwork:
I just have a feeling that this first painting may the original painting of the print you are referring to with "6 sinister looking clowns."
Many of his collectors were celebrities, including several comedians such as Jerry Van Dyke, Sid Caesar. I wonder if he portrayed their looks in any of his artwork? He did paint Emmet Kelly's face often.
He was a resident of Balboa (LA area), California for many years, and left his imprint on that area:
I suggest you contact any of the galleries selling his work for more information. Hope this has been of help.
Can you Compare Robert Owens factories and Richard Arkwright?
richard Arkwright invented the first mechanical spinning machine. He entered into partnership with Jediah Strutt of Derby, and set up a large water-powered factory at Cromford, in Derbyshire in 1771. In 1775 he took out a fresh patent for various additional improvements to his design. His success stimulated others to copy his design, and in 1781 he prosecuted nine different manufacturers, which led to him losing his letters patent in 1785. His machine diminished the demand for labour, and in 1779 his mill near chroley was destroyed by a mob. In 1790 he introduced the steam engine into his works at Nottingham.
Robert Owen married the son of David Dale, and bought from him the cotton-mills and manufacturing village he had established with richard Arkwright at new Lanark in Scotland. Owen established a model comunity with improved housing and working conditions, and built a school (including the world's first day-nursery and play-ground, and also evening classes) and a village s tore, the cradel of the co-operative movement. In 1813 he formed new Lanark into a new company with Jeremy Bentham and others who shared his socialist views.
I think Arkwright was an inventor and businessman who probably was not greaty interested in improving the social conditions of his workers etc, whereas Owen was a social reformer and visionary rather than an inventor. They probably had very different views of society and different goals. But we know a lot about what owen thought about things because he wrote books about his views and vision of the future, as in 'A New View of Society'(1813). I think Arkwright was probably more of a practical man of business than an idealistic visionary.
