Christian Aid
750 Oxford Circus London, England 5X$ 739

Dear Mr. Mukarjee:
I am writing to submit my application for the position of Director of Interfaith Dialogue.
I have worked for over forty years in South Africa and England to bring diverse communities together across lines of race, class and religion. During my tenure as Archbishop of Cape Town I provided pastoral care and leadership to people of faith who were working to overturn the evils of apartheid.
Once our country dismantled the apartheid system, I worked tirelessly to help poor people in our communities gain the basics of life, including food and medical care. This is when I first had the opportunity to work with Christian Aid. Our collaboration lead to the improvement of thousands of lives. Through this collaboration I managed a $10 million budget and managed a staff of over three hundred people.
Since stepping down as Archbishop of Cape Town, I have traveled the world meeting with leaders from many world religions to discuss ways in which people throughout the world can work for peace and a better future. This work has uniquely prepared me for a position like Director of Interfaith Dialogue. My sincere respect for other cultures and religions and my deep engagement with the teachings of Christianity will allow me to fulfill the demands of this important position.
I look forward to arranging an interview soon to discuss how I may join your organization and contribute to fulfilling the mission of serving poor people of all religious backgrounds around the world.
Sincerely,

Andrew Young…...

Fielding strategically advertises his authorship formally. Fielding’s purpose was aimed at inventing a new literary form, the "comic epic in prose" as he describes in his Preface: "…..differing from comedy, as the serious epic from tragedy: its action being more extended and comprehensive; containing a much larger circle of incidents, and introducing a greater variety of characters. It differs from the serious romance in its fable and action, in this: that as in the one these are grave and solemn, so in the other they are light and ridiculous; it differs in its characters, by introducing persons of inferior rank, and consequently of inferior manners, whereas the grave romance sets the highest......

...Andrew Carnegie: A Tribute "My heart is in the work." -- Andrew Carnegie Neither a rags-to-riches biographical sketch nor a perfectly scanned-in image of Mr. Carnegie could serve as as great a personal tribute to the great Founder of Libraries, the earnest Champion of Peace and the resolute Captain of Industry as presenting his own words online--available electronically and immediately to the whole world through the World Wide Web. He would be tickled pink. Mr. Carnegie loved to promote his ideas and opinions in print. As one of America's most successful businessmen and, perhaps, the world's richest man, it can be assumed that he felt his opinions and advice were not without proven merit. In fact, his journalistic career had begun early when the young man found himself barred from free membership in Col. James Anderson's "Mechanics' and Apprentices' Library." In 1853 Carnegie took the matter to the pages of the Pittsburgh Dispatch; and, as Joseph Wall notes in his definitive biography of Andrew Carnegie, the victory the young man won through his letters to the editor left a lasting impression: It was also his first literary success, and for Andrew nothing else that he had known in the way of recognition by others had been quite as exhilarating as this experience of seeing his own words in print. It fed his vanity and at the same time increased his appetite for more such food. At that moment a journalistic ambition was born which he would spend the remainder of his life...

Andrew Jackson

...Biography of Andrew Jackson Young Jr. Who was Andrew Young Jr.? Most people immediately associate him with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson and the Civil Rights Movement. I chose to write about Andrew Young because of his strong feelings about the rights of black Americans. He felt that everyone, black or white, should have equal rights. Andrew fought along the side of Martin Luther King, Jr. and continued the work after King's death. The Civil Rights Movement required many dedicated and determined souls. Andrew Young, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of peace who believed in using love vice hate to settle disagreements. He accomplished many wonderful things to help Martin Luther King's Dream live on. Andrew Jackson Young Jr. was born March 12, 1932, in New Orleans, Louisiana, during the depths of the Great Depression and Jim Crow segregation. His grandfather had been a successful businessman who had operated a drugstore, a pool hall, and a saloon. His father, Andrew Young Sr. was a dentist and his mother Daisy Fuller Young was a school teacher. The Young’s were among the elite of the city’s black population, which was largely poor and uneducated. Dr. Young Sr. could have afforded to live in a well-to-do white neighborhood, but no one would sell to him.(African American pg 104) .His parents were always very supportive of Andrew and his brother Walter. His parents always taught them the importance of religion and education and to treat others with......

...Page, 1 St. Andrew In my book racial profiling is not tolerated it’s despicable, unpleasant, and inappropriate I am definitely against it. Racial profiling is wrong and is a form of racism, and it also goes against the basic bounds of the Bill of Rights. Racial profiling has been used for decades by law prosecution interventions, dating back to the early sixties during the civil rights movement. One of the most famous accounts of racial profiling was the arrest and custody of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who was arrested for murder. The way Rubin Carter was detained by APV that two African American males in a white car were suspects of the murder; out of all the African Americans in white cars in the city how could the cops possibly determine which car to pull over, in that caser every white car with two African American males should have been pulled over. Even today racial profiling still goes on it’s not as bad as before but it’s still disrespectful to others. People are being mistaken for a criminal because you “fit the profile”? This is a common scenario all across America. All too often minorities are being sent off to jail because they “fit the profile”. Racial profiling is wrong, and it alters lives, destroys families, and halts dreams. Because of racial profiling, many African American and other minorities sit in jails and prisons across this nation, many of whom “let’s face it”, were guilty until proven innocent. The issue of racial profiling takes many......

Motherboard Basics A computer has many components, each with their own roles and functions. The role of the motherboard is to allow all these components to communicate with each other. Processor Socket The processor socket is the central piece of a motherboard, usually being located near the center of the motherboard. Power Connectors No computer component can operate without power, and a motherboard is no exception. The power connector, commonly a 20 or 24-pin connector, can be situated either near the right edge of the motherboard, or somewhere close to the processor socket on older motherboards. Memory Slots Located in the upper-right part of the motherboard, the memory slots are used to house the computer’s memory modules. The number of slots can vary, depending on motherboard, from 2, in low-end motherboards, all the way up to 8 memory slots, o our mother board Upgrading only the motherboard will give some performance improvement to a computer system. But the improvement performance will be limited as the motherboard doesn't really improve the overall power of your......

Andrew Vachss

...Although I am not a Batman fan, I think Andrew Vachss had a great idea in relating a fantasy world with the real world that we live in day to day. Andrew Vachss wrote this comic based of the question of “why”. Why does evil exist to hurt the most innocent and helpless human of all, a child? He used one of the most famous and feared detective/vigilantys of the graphic world as a medium to reach people. He uses Batman to play the main hero, or “Warrior”, to fight his crime and to get a better understanding of mentality of a pedophile. I believe Andrew Vachss writes Batman: The Ultimate Evil based on a personal conviction to persecute the evil doers of child abuse. He writes about a taboo that not many people want to talk about and opens the eyes of his readers that it is an ongoing problem both in the fantasy and real world. He uses Batman’s personal experience of his parents’ abuse to pursue the enemy. Because Batman is a “good guy”, Andrew Vachss puts a twist to the story and has Batman’s sidekick, Rhama, commit murder for him as he sits at a distance and watches. I believe Andrew Vachss does this to continue the “good” character role of Batman. He relates the relationship of Batman and Rhama in the fantasy world to one taking out vengeance one a pedophile via a hit man in our real world. Andrew Vachss can relate to Batman as a detective himself. Andrew Vachss kept a journal of details within his life to create his work ethic that he has today and use it to help the helpless......

...Andrew Jackson: The American Presidents. By Sean Wilentz. Princeton University: Published by Times Books. January 1st, 2006. ISBN: 0-8050-6925-9. Bibliography. Notes. Index. Pp.xiii, 166. Fearless, principled, and damaged. Andrew Jackson can be considered one of the most controversial presidents, or even an outlaw, amongst the U.S. Jackson was a strong advocate for war and protecting his country. His early life was without a doubt, dissimilar from many presidents. Although, the traumatizing experiences he endured will be the fuel that would soon spark the flames of Jackson’s journey to glory. It was Jackson’s mother envisioned his leader like abilities early, in which she spent her last dime on his education. In 1779, Jackson and his brother were exposed early to the brutal tactics of the American Revolutionary war. The betrayal of a local Waxhaw loyalty led to their capture by British troops and forced to clean boots. The refusing Jackson was sliced over the head with a sword. They both undertook many health problems (including smallpox), which would eventually lead to the death of his brother. Shortly after, his mother died which left Jackson orphaned at 14. Jackson attracted many different jobs before finally settling in Tennessee, as a public prosecutor in 1787. With his salary being the 2nd highest in the state, He continued to climb up the political ladder and gain respect from locals. With much passion about the military, Jackson gained national reputation from......

Andrew Carnegie

...Andrew Carnegie: Andrew Carnegie was born on November 25, 1835, in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. As a young kid his parents believed in books and education. As a young adult he wanted to make money, so he got a job as a factory worker when his family moved to Pennsylvania in 1848. A year after that, he got a different job as a telegraph messenger. Wanting to go further he became a telegraph operator. He then got a job on the railroad as an assistant and telegrapher. Carnegie began to make many investments, one of these was oil. He then began becoming interested in steel. He soon opened up his own business called Carnegie steel company. He revolutionized the steel industry as we know it. He began building steel plants all over the country. Using new technology and new methods he was able to mass produce steel. He was so successful because he had everything he needed, raw material, ships, and railroads. http://www.biography.com/people/andrew-carnegie-9238756#early-life Carnegie treated his workers poorly. Since steel was cheap, that meant that his workers suffered. The workers had lower wages due to this. The steel was cheap so he couldn’t really pay his workers fairly. Also job security was an issue, people would be there for a little, then he would get new people. The workers never really knew when they would be laid off or if they had a job, no one really knew. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/carnegie/sfeature/mf_flames.html When......

Andrew Jackson

...people a right to have representation in government by voting. The concept of the “common man” describes a white working male of middle class. Andrew Jackson was the 7th president and American war hero from the war of 1812 battle of New Orleans and fought in the Revolutionary war when he was young. Andrew Jackson supported the representation of the “common man” which made him popular amongst those who were considered in his eyes to be the “common man”. Andrew Jackson was both a democratic and undemocratic president because of his Native American policy, economic policy and Jacksonian political policy. Andrew Jackson acted democratically and undemocratically on the issue of Native American policy. The Native American Policy was how Natives were treated by the government. Source J demonstrates Jackson’s undemocratic values; showing the trails the Native American as he forces Native Americans to move and not be allowed a say in the government’s decisions on moving west. In source E, Andrew Jackson shows his democracy by wanting to help the Natives. This example is of Andrew Jackson suggestion to congress for moving all tribes west to one area to keep them from all becoming extinct. This suggestion is made official when Andrew Jackson creates the Indian Removal Act. Source L is the letters written by Jackson to his wife about the adoption of a young Native American boy without any other family. This is proof that Jackson does not have any personal grudge against Natives; he......

...Andrew Jackson Young Andrew Jackson Young Jr. was born March 12, 1932 in New Orleans, Louisiana. His mother was Daisy Full Young a school teacher, and his father was Andrew Jackson Young Sr., a dentist. Young’s father hired a professional boxer to teach Andrew and his brother how to fight, so they could defend themselves. From that, Andrew decided that violence was not the path he would choose to follow. After beginning his higher education at Dillard University, Young transferred to Howard University in Washington, D.C. in 1947, and received his Bachelor of Science in pre-dentistry degree there in 1951. He felt a religious calling and entered the Turner-Boatwright Christian ministry school and earned a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1955. Young was appointed to serve as pastor of a church in Marion, Alabama. It was there in Marion that he met Jean Childs, who later became his wife. He became friend and ally of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at this time. In 1060 he joined the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Young was jailed for his participation in civil rights demonstrations, both in Selma, Alabama, and in St. Augustine, Florida.

Andrew Jackson

...President Andrew Jackson was the first president not from the rich Aristocracy class. This means he was not born into the wealthy gentleman class as the prior presidents were. He was a man of the people and for the people and strongly believed in that motto. The road he took to the White House and the way he ran the country as President would change the country and democracy forever. Andrew Jackson was born on the frontier in South Carolina to a poor family. His Father died at a young age and his mother raise him and his brothers. At the age of 14 Jackson left to join the continental army to fight the British in the Revolutionary War(23) Meachem. Him and his brothers were captured by the British and put into a prison camp and treated very poorly. His brothers were killed in this camp and coming out of it he developed a strong hatred toward the British. Also his mom was killed while serving as a nurse for the Army so he was an orphan after the War and travelled from family to family. Growing up poor and having bad experiences with the British as a young kid will affect his policies as president. Jackson became a successful lawyer in Tennessee and made a name for himself and became very wealthy. He was elected the general of the Tennessee volunteer Army at the time of the Battle of 1812(67) Meachem. His most impressive accomplishment was his victory at the......
