Bobby Flay Childhood
Bobby Flay Childhood

Family, Education & More

Bobby Flay was born Robert William Flay on December 10, 1964, in New York City, and raised on Manhattan’s Upper East Side by divorced parents Bill and Dorothy Flay, Irish-Americans who bestowed red hair and freckles upon their son. From a young age, Flay showed a talent for cooking. He arranged his mother’s grocery lists, whipped up complex after-school snacks and even requested an Easy-Bake Oven as a Christmas gift. He was, however, markedly less interested in school. Flay bounced around several parochial schools before dropping out of high school at the age of 17.

His first professional restaurant job came in 1982, shortly after he left school. His father Bill, a manager for the famed Joe Allen’s restaurant in New York’s Theater District, called one day and ordered Bobby Flay to fill in for a sick busboy. “He told me he didn’t ask,” Flay later recalled. This soon turned into a full-time job at Joe Allen’s, where Flay moved from busboy to kitchen helper. His boss paid to send him to the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan, which Flay attended after earning his high school equivalency diploma. He received the institute’s Outstanding Graduate Award in 1993.

Jamie Foxx Movies And TV Shows

  • Leaving college, Foxx moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy. In 1991 he was hired as a regular cast member on the Fox variety show In Living Color.
  • Foxx left In Living Color in 1994, but in 1996 he returned to television with The Jamie Foxx Show, playing a struggling Los Angeles actor who lives in a hotel owned by his aunt and uncle.
  • Jamie Foxx By the time his show ended in 2001, Foxx was beginning to be viewed as a talented dramatic actor. This was due in large part to his performance in the sports drama Any Given Sunday (1999).
  • Playing football star Willie Beamen, Foxx showed incredible range in his performance and held his own against one of the film’s greats, Al Pacino.
  • His next notable film role was in Michael Mann’s Ali (2001), and he later earned praise for his performance opposite Tom Cruise in the thriller Collateral (2004).
  • While Collateral was a critical and commercial hit, Foxx drew more attention that year for his starring role as Ray Charles in the biopic Ray. Bringing the legendary R&B musician to life on the big screen, Foxx earned Best Actor wins at both the Academy Awards and Golden Globes.
  • Following Ray, Foxx took an interesting array of roles with mixed results. The military action film Stealth (2005), with Josh Lucas and Jessica Biel, was a critical and financial dud.
  • That same year, he garnered some critical praise for his turn as a marine serving in the Middle East in Jarhead, with Jake Gyllenhaal, but the movie failed to attract much of an audience.
  • After teaming up with Colin Farrell for Michael Mann’s big-screen adaptation of the popular 1980s cop show Miami Vice (2006), Foxx co-starred in Dreamgirls (2006), with Jennifer Hudson and Beyoncé, as a scheming car salesman who becomes a manager for R&B star James Thunder Early (played by Eddie Murphy).
  • His character then transforms Early’s backup singers, the Dreamettes, into an all-female supergroup. The film is loosely based on the ’60s pop group the Supremes.
  • In late 2012 Foxx burst back onto the big screen with a leading role in Quentin Tarantino’s action western Django Unchained. He starred as Django, a freed slave who teams up with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to find his wife (Kerry Washington) and face off against the plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio) who has her captive. The cast also included Samuel L. Jackson and Jonah Hill.
  • Foxx then co-starred in the 2013 action film White House Down as President Sawyer, opposite Channing Tatum. In 2014 he reprised earlier roles in Rio 2 and Horrible Bosses 2; played the villain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and took on the role of the Daddy Warbucks-like William Stacks for a remake of Annie.
  • Foxx took a break from the screen, before resurfacing in 2017 with the crime flicks Sleepless and Baby Driver. In late 2018, following the announcement that he would star in an adaptation of the popular comic book series Spawn, Foxx appeared in a remake of Robin Hood as the title character’s trusted friend, Little John.
  • The following year, he delivered a strong performance in Just Mercy, based on the story of an African-American pulpwood worker who was wrongfully convicted of the 1986 murder of a young white woman.
  • Next up for the actor is a leading voice role in the animated Soul, as well as a re-pairing with Downey in the sports comedy All-Star Weekend.

Life Journey

Boretzka is a native of Bochum, North Rhine-Westphalia. After his completion of his Abitur, he graduated from the Alice-Salomon-Berufskolleg [de] (Alice-Salomon-Vocational School) in Bochum. Konrad, his father, is an automotive engineer and electrical engineer for Opel.

Leon Goretzka is a member of a middle-class family. His father Konrad Goretzka was one of the modern-day beneficiaries of the German industrial revolution. Konrad Goretzka worked for Opel as an automotive engineer and electrical engineer.

During Leon’s childhood, he learned a lot from his dad. His father is still credited with his leadership skills. Leon’s mum played a major role in raising her son in a Catholic manner despite having a strong father influence. Despite having friends, Leon’s mum remains his best companion to date.

When I was a child, there were no toys or games. Everything was a soccer ball. His career has been an amazing journey. Leon had a steely determination to become a professional footballer from an early age. His motivation could be attributed to the fact that he lived just five minutes away from the legendary Ruhrstadion, the home of his boyhood club VfL Bochum.

His frequent trips to the football stadium with his season tickets made him appreciate sports, which led to his decision to become a coach. Leonard joined Werner SV 06 Bochum in 1999, when he was 4 years old, as a result of his proximity to the club. It was at this point that his aspirations of becoming pro became more than a passing fantasy.

During COVID-19, Goretzka launched the online initiative “We Kick Corona” with Bayern Munich teammate Joshua Kimmich to support charitable, social, or medical institutions.

Goretzka has been active against hate crime, visiting the Dachau Holocaust memorial and meeting Holocaust survivor Margot Friedlander. As a critic of the far-right party Alternative for Germany, he calls them a “disgrace for Germany” and says they do so by being supported and led by Holocaust revisionists and Corona deniers.

Early life

Premji’s father established Western Indian Vegetable Products Ltd. in the year of his birth, which created vanaspati, a popular hydrogenated shortening. After colonial India was divided into primarily Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan three years later, the Premji family, who were Muslims, made the decision to stay in India.

Premji’s father passed away unexpectedly in 1966, a few months before he was set to finish his engineering degree at Stanford University. He postponed receiving his diploma and instead went back to India to take over the family firm. He then started to diversify the company by getting into consumer goods including soap, shoes, and lightbulbs as well as hydraulic cylinders.

When the Indian government asked IBM to leave the country in 1979, Premji renamed the business Wipro and started to guide it toward the computer industry. In the 1980s, Wipro formed a number of fruitful international alliances to aid in the development of computer hardware for the Indian market. But it was software development that brought in the big bucks for the company.

Premji gained a reputation for selecting the best candidates and giving them unmatched training. He also profited from India’s enormous pool of educated software professionals who were ready to work for significantly less money than their American counterparts. Wipro focused on creating specialised software for export, mostly to the US.

Lee Shau- Kee Biography, Age, Children, Family, Assets, Career

Professional Career

Muhammed Hashim Premji established Western Indian Vegetable Products Ltd in 1945. The company is headquartered in Amalner, a tiny village in Maharashtra’s Jalgaon district. It used to produce laundry soap with the brand name 787 as well as frying oil under the Sunflower Vanaspati label as a byproduct. After learning of his father’s passing in 1966, Azim Premji, who was 21 at the time and attending Stanford University to study engineering, went home to take over Wipro.

Western India Vegetable Products, as the business was then known, manufactured hydrogenated oils. However, Azim Premji later expanded the company’s product line to include baking fats, ethnic ingredient based toiletries, hair care soaps, baby toiletries, lighting products, and hydraulic cylinders.

Wipro’s worth soared in the late 1990s as a result of significant increases in technology stocks, and Premji rose to become one of the richest businessmen in the world—a title he held well into the 21st century. However, more than only external factors inflating the business’s worth contributed to the success of the company and its chairman.

At a period when most fortunes in India were founded on ownership of land and factories used to produce things for home consumption, Premji had bravely broken with tradition by developing Wipro into an information technology behemoth with a solid footing in overseas markets. Premji successfully finished his Stanford degree through online learning in 1999.

The young businessman changed the company’s name to Wipro and entered the high-technology industry by producing minicomputers in a technological partnership with an American company Sentinel Computer Corporation in the 1980s. Recognizing the significance of the developing IT field, the young entrepreneur capitalised on the void left behind by IBM’s expulsion from India. Premji then turned his attention intently away from soaps and onto the software.

Premji was credited with making Wipro one of the fastest-growing corporations in the world, earning him a spot on Business Week’s list of the “Greatest Entrepreneurs.”

He received an honorary doctorate from the Manipal Academy of Higher Education in 2000. The National Institute of Industrial Engineering, Mumbai, presented Azim Premji with the Lakshya Business Visionary award in 2006. He received an honorary degree in 2009 from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, in recognition of his exceptional philanthropic activities.

In 2015, he received an honorary doctorate from Mysore University. He received the Padma Bhushan award from the Indian government in 2005 for his remarkable contributions to trade and business. He received the Padma Vibhushan, the second-highest civilian honour bestowed by the Indian government, in 2011. He was placed ninth on India Today magazine’s list of the 50 most powerful Indians in 2017 in April.

Premji received the highest French civilian honour, Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honour), from the French government in 2018. Premji was listed as one of the “Heroes of Philanthropy list of 30 altruists” in the Asia-Pacific area by Forbes magazine in December 2019. Premji was ranked among the top philanthropists outside of the US by Forbes in 2019.

Donation

He established the nonprofit Azim Premji Foundation in 2001.

He promised to donate $2 billion to India’s school system in December 2010. To accomplish this, 213 million equity shares of Wipro Ltd. owned by a couple of his controlled corporations were transferred to the Azim Premji Trust. The largest donation of its sort has ever been made to India. Premji promised an extra 34% of his Wipro stock to the foundation in March 2019. With this distribution, his endowment to the foundation will equal US$21 billion, at a current value of almost US$7.5 billion.

The National Centre for Biological Sciences, the Institute for Stem Cell Science, and the Azim Premji Foundation worked together in May 2020 to strengthen the testing infrastructure to address the coronavirus pandemic. The organisation has issued a warning against bogus donation requests in emails that purport to be from the charity.

According to Premji, having money “did not delight” him. He became the first Indian to join the Warren Buffett and Bill Gates-led Giving Pledge, which calls on the richest individuals to pledge to donate the majority of their money to charitable organisations. After Richard Branson and David Sainsbury, he is the third non-American to join this group. I firmly believe that those of us who are fortunate enough to be wealthy should make large contributions to try and improve the lives of the millions of people who are significantly less fortunate.

He claimed to have donated more than 25% of his personal wealth to charities as of April 2013. He donated a further 18% of his Wipro investment in July 2015, bringing his overall donation to date to 39 per cent. His lifetime donations total more than US$21 billion. He was the first Indian to sign the Giving Pledge. Azim Premji rose to prominence as India’s leading philanthropist in April 2019.

India Philanthropy List by EdelGive

Hurun India and EdelGive issued a list of “India’s most charitable” people on November 10, 2020, with Azim Premji at the top. He increased his donation by 17 times, from $4.53 billion in FY19 to 79.04 billion in the current fiscal year. His donations are primarily used for education. By giving 9,713 crores ($1.33 billion) in FY21, he kept his job.

Kasper Schmeichel Biography, Age, Parents, Wife, Career & Net Worth

Kasper Peter Schmeichel famously known as Kasper Schmeichel is a Danish professional football goalkeeper who plays for Premier League club Leicester City and the Danish national team. Schmeichel is the son of former Manchester United and Danish international goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel. Prior to making his debut for Manchester City, Schmeichel spent time on loan with Darlington, Bury, and Falkirk. Schmeichel appeared to have made the City number one jersey his own at the start of the 2007–08 season, but Joe Hart’s emergence led to Schmeichel being loaned to Cardiff City.

Schmeichel fell even further down the pecking order at City after signing Republic of Ireland international Shay Given in January 2009, and in August 2009, he joined former manager Sven-Göran Eriksson at Notts County. He spent just one season with the Magpies, despite it being a very successful one for both the club and the player himself, due to changes in the club’s financial position which led to his departure.

Leeds United signed him in May 2010, but again his tenure at the club would only last one season before he was transferred to Leicester City, where he would work again under Eriksson. In addition to winning the Championship in the 2013–14 season, the Premier League in 2015–16, and the FA Cup in 2020–21, Schmeichel has played over 400 competitive matches for Leicester. During his time with the Danish national under-21 team, Schmeichel played 17 games. Having been called up to the Danish national team for the first time against Iceland on 13 May 2011, he was part of their squad at UEFA Euro 2012 but did not make his senior debut until 2013. His country was represented at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2020.

Life Journey

Woodgram’s Kasper Schmeichel Biography tells you details about his Childhood, Early Life, Parents, Wife (Stine Gyldenbrand), Child, Lifestyle, Net Worth, and Personal Life. In a nutshell, we tell the story of a Leicester-inspired goalkeeping legend known as “The Big Dane”.

We begin with his early days when he became famous. The following is a pictorial summary of Kasper Schmeichel’s life to give you a sense of the engaging nature of his life.

He is the son of former Manchester United and Danish international legend Peter Schmeichel. Only a few people consider Kasper Schmeichel’s biography, which is quite interesting. Without further ado, let’s get started.

In the city of Copenhagen, Denmark, Kasper Peter Schmeichel was born on the 5th day of the 5th month of 1986 to his mother Bente Schmeichel (a housekeeper) and father Peter Peter Schmeichel (the Legendary Goalkeeper).

Through his grandfather (a Danish musician), Kasper has Polish roots, not Danish, as many football fans are used to. He’s related to Tolek Schmeichel, an immigrant to Denmark who went by the name Schmeichel in the 1960s. Kasper’s grandfather (Tolek) was a war child whose father (Kasper’s great-grandfather) was killed as a Polish soldier during World War II.

Kasper Schmeichel’s great-granddad was a soldier, so the Schmeichel family has military roots. Upon leaving Poland, Tolek (Kasper’s Granddad) moved to Denmark with his wife and raised their legendary son Peter Schmeichel. Peter Schmeichel took advantage of this raw mental strength of military family roots and a strong physique to make a name for himself in football, then passed it on to his beloved son Kasper.

He became a father for the first time when his wife Bente gave birth to Kasper at the age of 22. Observe below that Little Kasper lived an affluent life because his dad was famous. He was the kind of kid whose parents could afford the latest toys. Cecilie Schmeichel was Kasper’s younger sister who accompanied him when he was growing up.

On a beautiful summer evening in 1991, Kasper’s dad, Peter Schmeichel, was celebrating his fifth Danish league title with his club (Brondby IF). He decided to have a little party, inviting his guest of which most were club fans.

When the invited guests made their way into the party, a 4-year-old Kasper Schmeichel stood in front of the door and declared, “You all can’t come in here!” “Yes, we’re allowed in, your dad invited us.” 

Kasper’s co-fans ushered him back to his mother as one of them replied, allowing his co-fans into the house. Peter Schmeichel continued his successful career with Manchester United a few weeks later.

In some 25 years’ time, Kasper is still standing in the way of visitors, but this time, it is all kinds of football opponents aiming to place the ball behind him. Let me tell you a little about how the journey began.

Peter Kasper’s dad was voted the IFFHS World’s Best Goalkeeper in 1992 & 1993, when he was 7 & 8. Having a father who was not only the best goalkeeper in the world but also spearheaded a series of titles with Manchester United, it was easy for Kasper to follow in his father’s footsteps.

He spent most of his childhood enjoying his father’s career success. Since his father was a professional football player, he began school in England. Hulme Hall Grammar School is located in Greater Manchester, where Kasper attended elementary school.

Even as he read his books, he was devoted to sports. In his off-school days, Kaper played goalkeeping football with his friends, including Alex Bruce, the son of Kasper’s father’s former Manchester United teammate Steve Bruce.

The majority of kid footballers begin their careers by joining a football academy, but Kasper was taught by his father. The Manchester United management allowed Kasper to follow his legendary father to training.

Growing up, he enjoyed watching Manchester United legends train behind the goalposts. In addition to sprinting to fetch wayward shots that missed the goal, Kasper attended every single game at Old Trafford.

 After leading Manchester United to the 1999 Treble, Kasper Schmeichel’s dad ended his career on a high note.

After the age of 36, Peter sought out a slower pace of football in Portugal (Sporting CP), a move that resulted in the entire Schmeichel family leaving England for Portugal. While Kasper was living with his parents in Portugal in the year 2000, he enrolled in the Estoril football academy known as Grupo Desportivo Estoril. Following in his dad’s footsteps, Kasper continued to study at the academy.

Throughout the year 1999 to 2001, he received extra lessons from his dad at Sporting CP after training sessions. Kasper Schmeichel learned a lot from his dad during hrs early career days.

The Schmeichel family felt it was time to leave Portugal after staying there for two years. Once again, Kasper decided to leave the club, following his dad back to England where he joined Aston Villa. Kasper joined Man city and after some months, he reunited with his father, this time at the same club. Kasper joined Man city and after some months, he reunited with his father, this time at the same club.

Kasper could not easily fill in his dad’s shoes after he retired from football and City in 2003, as he had not yet graduated with the academy. Instead of waiting, City bought David James, who filled Schmeichel’s vacancy.

Kasper had assumed he would have an easy transition into senior football after graduating from youth football, but things weren’t going as planned. The spot for a senior goalkeeper was filled at the time by Joe Hart, who was on a steady rise and deemed irreplaceable. That left poor Kasper frustrated.

With so much success over the years, it was hard for the Schmeichel family to see their own falling down the pecking order at Eastlands. Kasper Schmeichel went through various snakes and ladders in order to become a first-team goalkeeper.

After going on loan from 2006 to 2009, he started his senior career quickly with Bury, Falkirk, Notts County, and Leeds. Finally, Kasper was rescued. He wasn’t his super father, but Notts County boss, Sven-Goran Eriksson, who helped him land a first-team goalkeeping role with Leicester. On the 27th of June 2011, he confirmed Kasper as his oalkee er lo alist.

Behind the successful goalkeeper in Peter, there was a son in Kasper. And in the heart of Kasper, there came LOVE from a glamorous girl who once rolled her eyes before becoming a girlfriend in the year 2004. Despite being nearly 2 years older than Kasper, Stine Gyldenbrand is a Danish lady born in 1985.

Her stardom began when she began dating Kasper during the last year of his youth career in 2004 when Kasper was only 17 years old. Stine Gyldenbrand had just enrolled at the University of Chester to study for a degree in midwifery when they met.

In 2009, she began working at a hospital near Birmingham, and a year later (2010), they welcomed their first child, a son named Max Schmeichel. The couple welcomed their second child, Isabella Schmeichel, in 2012.

Ava Gardner Bio, Age, Height, Spouse, Quotes, Museum, Movies & Wiki

Ava Gardner was a renowned actress who was among the leading heroines in Hollywood during the 1950s and 1960s. Considered to be one of the most attractive women of her day, she rose to fame with her appearance of the glamorous beauty, Kitty Collins, in ‘The Killers’. Born into a wide family, she lost her father at a young age. Growing up during the big Depression, her poor family could barely manage to survive. Ava became an actress totally by chance—her brother-in-law, a photographer, had taken a beautiful picture of hers which was sent to MGM studio. The dark-haired beauty with the bewitching smile was called for an audition and soon found herself signing a contract with the famous studio.

During her initial years, she received only small characters, however, her fortunes transformed when she was chosen to perform the femme fatale, Kitty Collins, in ‘The Killers’ which settled her as a leading lady. Propelled by the success of the movie, she went to play substantial characters in high-profile films from the 1950s onwards. The film ‘The Barefoot Contessa’ in which she worked with Humphrey Bogart is considered to be her signature film as she had a routine of going barefoot in real-life too.

Life Journey

Ava Gardner was born on December 24, 1922, in Grabtown, North Carolina, the youngest of seven children. She had two older brothers, Raymond and Melvin, and four older sisters, Beatrice, Elsie Mae, Inez, and Myra. Her parents, Mary Elizabeth “Molly” and Jonas Bailey Gardner (1878–1938) were poor tobacco sharecroppers. While accounts of her background vary, Ava’s only documented ancestry was English.

She was raised in the Baptist faith of her mother. While the children were still young, the Gardner’s lost their property, and Molly received an offer to work as a cook and housekeeper at a dormitory for teachers at the nearby Brogden School that included board for the family and where Jonas continued sharecropping tobacco and supplemented the dwindling work with odd jobs at sawmills.

In 1931, the teachers’ school closed forcing the family to finally give up on their property dreams and they moved to a larger city, Newport News, Virginia, where Molly found work managing a boarding house for the city’s many ships workers.

While in Newport News, Jonas became ill and died from bronchitis in 1938, when Ava was 15 years old. After her father’s death, the family moved to Rock Ridge near Wilson, North Carolina, where Molly ran another boarding house for teachers. Ava attended high school in Rock Ridge and she graduated from there in 1939. She then attended secretarial classes at Atlantic Christian College in Wilson for about a year.

Museum

Ava Gardner Museum is located in downtown Smithfield, North Carolina, and holds an extensive collection of artifacts from Ava Gardner’s career and private life.

The original collection was started in 1941 by a fan, Tom Banks, who at age 12 met Ava on the campus of Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College), where she was studying to become a secretary. When she did not return to school the next year, he saw a photograph of Gardner in a newspaper and learned that she had been signed to a movie contract with MGM.

The Banks family devoted most of their lives to collecting memorabilia from every source possible. In the early 1980s, Dr. Banks purchased the Brogden Teacherage, the house where Ava lived from age 2 to 13 and operated his own Ava Gardner Museum during the summers for nine years. Dr. Banks (he was a psychologist) suffered a stroke at the museum in August 1989 and died a few days later. Gardner died 5 months later on January 25, 1990. In the summer of 1990, Mrs. Banks donated the collection to the Town of Smithfield, being assured that a permanent museum would be maintained in Johnston County, Gardner’s birthplace and final resting place. Lorraine died a year and three days later on January 28, 1991, of complications of an asthma attack.

The Ava Gardner Museum was incorporated in 1996 as a 501(c)3 organization to manage and care for the Museum’s collection of personal items and movie memorabilia given to the Town of Smithfield by Tom and Lorraine Banks. Since that time, the Ava Gardner Museum Foundation has continued to acquire artifacts related to Gardner’s life and is committed to preserving these items and displaying them in an educational manner.

In August 1999, the Museum’s Board of Directors made an investment in downtown Smithfield by purchasing and renovating a 6,400-square-foot (590 m2) building that became the permanent home for the Museum’s collection. In October 2000, the new Ava Gardner Museum opened its doors and has continued to draw approximately 12,000 visitors annually.

Ava Gardner Quotes

  1. “The truth is, honey, I’ve enjoyed my life. I’ve had a hell of a good time.”
  2. “When I’m old and gray, I wish to have a house by the sea. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in.”
  3. “S*x isn’t all that important, but it is when you love someone very much.”
  4. “I want to live to 150 years old, but the day I die, I want it to be with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.”
  5. “When I lose my sensitivity, honey, you can’t find it anyplace.”
  6. “Go fuck yourself,” I responded, always the lady. “I’m staying here.”
  7. “When you have to face up to the fact that marriage to the man you love is really over, that’s very tough, sheer agony. In that kind of distressing situation, I always go away and cut myself off from the world. Also, I sober up shortly when there is fairly bad news in my life; I never face it with alcohol in my brain. I just rented a house in Palm Springs and sit there and just gone through for a couple of weeks. I went through there until I was strong enough to face it.”
  8. “God knows I’ve got so many defects myself, I sought to be able to understand and forgive them in others. But I don’t.”
  9. “Maybe, in the final judgment, they saw me as something I wasn’t and I struggled to turn them into something they could never be. I liked them all but maybe I never admitted any of them. I don’t think they understood me.”
  10. “I have only one law in acting trust the director, and give him heart and soul.”
  11. “Hell, I suppose if you stick around long enough they have to say something good about you.”

  14. “I want to remember it all, the good times and the bad times, the late nights, the boozing, the dancing into dawns, and all the great and not-so-great people I met and loved in those years”
  15. “Our phone bills were astronomical, and when I found the letters Frank wrote to me the other day, the total could fill a suitcase. Every single day during our relationship, no matter where in the world I was, I’d get a telegram from Frank saying he loved me and missed me. He was a man who was desperate for companionship and love. Can you wonder that he always had mine!”
  16. “I hate cheating. I won’t put up with it. I don’t do it myself.”
  17. “Great idea,” I said. “Call the police. Call the fucking police.”
  18. “Don’t think for a minute that bad publicity and endless criticism don’t leave their claw marks on everyone concerned. Your friends try to cheer you up by saying lightly, “I suppose you get used to it and ignore it.” You try. You try damned hard. But you never get used to it. It always wounds and hurts.”
  19. “I’m here to tell you, there ain’t much forgiveness in that old-time religion. That particular savior was a mean son of a bitch. If you sinned, honey, he was going to get you, no doubt about it.”
  20. “And I won ’em back fair and square. So what are you going to do about it? Want to fight? Who wants the first bloody nose?”
  21. “He will always be my Sir Galahad.”
  22. “In one scene, when I was expected to say, “In a pig’s eye you are,” what came out was, “In a pig’s ass you are.” Old habits die awfully hard.”

  24. “So this was where lust was satisfied. If I’d been an old-time miner I’d have asked for my gold nugget back.”
  25. “I caught his drift, but I wasn’t going to argue for a single second. Just get me to the Hampshire House, that’s all I cared about. Besides, how could I say, “No, I’m not a pr*stitute I’m Mrs. Frank Sinatra out for an early morning walk in the rain”?”
  26. “I either write the books or sell the jewels, and I’m kinda sentimental about the jewels.”
  27. “Then, aided by the booze, like a fool I tossed off one of those throwaway lines that would have been better thrown away. “Ah, Frank! I thought you were going to be down here fucking Lana.”
  28. “He always called me Daughter. It was to distinguish me from his sister Ava. I loved being called Daughter. It sounded so possessive, and to be possessed when you are a child is just a wonderful feeling. It makes you feel safe. It makes you feel loved.”

Although Gardner could afford her medical expenses, Sinatra wished to pay for her visit to a specialist in the United States, and she granted him to make the arrangements for a medically staffed private plane.

She went through a bad fall a week before she died, and she lay on the floor, alone and unable to move until her housekeeper returned. Her last words (to her housekeeper) were revealed: “I’m so tired.” She died of pneumonia at the age of 67, at her London home, 34 Ennismore Gardens, where she had resided since 1968.

Gardner was buried in the Sunset Memorial Park, Smithfield, North Carolina, next to her siblings and their parents, Jonas and Molly Gardner. In the town of Smithfield, there is the Ava Gardner Museum incorporated in 1996.

Professional Career

With a $10,000 loan, Bren constructed his first home in Newport Beach in 1958. In 1958, he created the Bren Company, a house construction company in Orange County, California, and so began his entrepreneurial career. In order to design and construct the city of Mission Viejo, California, he cofounded the Mission Viejo Company (MVC) with two other individuals in 1963 and bought 10,000 acres. Bren presided over MVC as president from 1963 to 1967. 

Following the recession, International Paper gave the Bren Co. back to Bren for $22 million in 1972 after purchasing it for $34 million in 1970. Bren used the money to buy the 146-year-old Irvine Company in 1977 along with a group of investors. With a 34.3 per cent stake in the firm and the designation of vice-chair of the board, Bren was the consortium’s largest stakeholder. He was elected board chairman and the company’s main owner by 1983. He had acquired all outstanding shares by 1996 in order to become the business’s sole owner.

Bren, who controls not just how people live and shop but also who governs them, “wields more influence than Howard Hughes ever did, maybe as much as any guy in America over a concentrated territory,” according to OC Weekly in 2005.

Simply, Orange County looks like Orange County…because of the impact of [Donald Bren],” the Los Angeles Times noted in 2006. “What I learnt was that when you retain property over the long term, you’re able to build greater values and you have something concrete to show for it,” Bren explained his real estate investing approach in an interview in 2011 Bren is the richest US real estate developer and the 32nd-richest American according to Forbes’ 2019 edition of “The 400 Richest Americans,” with an estimated net worth of $17 billion.

The Irvine Company is said to be the owner of more than 120,000,000 square feet (ft.2) of property, the majority of which is in Southern California. A few hotels, marinas, golf courses, 550 office buildings, 125 residential complexes, and more than 40 retail centres are among the company’s properties. He presently holds 97 per cent ownership in the Manhattan Met Life skyscraper.

Philanthropic activities

Bren was recognised as one of the top ten philanthropists in the country by BusinessWeek in 2008 for his more than $1 billion in donations to a variety of organisations, including education, conservation, and research.

The National Philanthropy Day of Orange County presented Bren with the “Donald Bren Legacy of Giving Award” in 2010. Bren stated that he “does attempt to provide the same amount of focus to both my humanitarian and business efforts” while discussing his charity activity at the time.

Education sector philanthropy

More than $200 million has been contributed by Education Bren to fund initiatives in Southern California’s K–12 public schools and higher education institutions.

The University of California, Irvine, University of California, Santa Barbara, and Chapman University are just a few of the Californian colleges that have profited from many of Bren’s efforts. Bren “has provided more to fund endowed chairs than any other single donor in UC’s history,” according to the university. 

He has made donations to assist its professors and activities both privately and through the Donald Bren Charitable Trust. In recognition of his support for the university, UC Irvine has called the Donald Bren Events Center, Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, and Donald Bren Hall.

His stepmother’s name is also used for the university’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts. In addition, Bren Hall and a graduate programme named after him at UC Santa Barbara are called the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management.

Bren donated money to the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management in order to “improve and reinforce the school’s core multidisciplinary programmes, staff, and special activities.” Bren’s goal of creating a world-class university that offers an interdisciplinary programme in environmental science, management, and policy has been a huge source of inspiration and leadership for the Bren School, according to UC Santa Barbara Chancellor Henry T. Yang, who was speaking about the school’s continued support from Bren.

Bren made a $20 million donation to the freshly founded UC Irvine School of Law in August 2007. The donation’s goals included creating an endowment to facilitate the hiring of a nationally renowned dean and 11 eminent legal experts as well as giving the dean some initial discretionary funds.

The institution was initially known as the UC Irvine Donald Bren School of Law in honour of the gift. Bren and the university came to an arrangement in 2008 that the university would not be named after him. The law school’s dean, Erwin Chemerinsky, stated, “We are profoundly appreciative of the Bren donation, but the chancellor and Mr Bren agreed that our name should be similar to other UC institutions.”

As a trustee at the California Institute of Technology, Bren funded five Bren Professorships and sponsored five new faculty members as Bren Scholars.

Additionally, Bren gave $1 million to the Marine Corps University in Quantico, Virginia, in 2003. Two academic chairs with a focus on ethics and leadership and innovation and change were endowed with the money. Bren has made important contributions to California’s K–12 public schools in addition to higher education.

He has backed THINK Together, a Southern California company that offers after-school programmes for children in grades K–12. Bren made his first commitment to this charity in 2001, enabling the after-school programme in the Santa Ana region to expand its services to 40 schools. Over a ten-year period, more than 10,000 pupils would profit from the donation, according to the officials.

Additionally, Bren gave $20 million in 2006 to the Irvine Unified School District in Irvine, California. The district would hire art, music, and science instructors with the help of this grant. Over a ten-year period, the money would assist kids in grades four through six by providing them with access to music, art, and science activities.

In addition to the $25 million that Bren gave to Irvine schools in 2000, this gift is also being made. Former Irvine Public Schools Foundation CEO Tim Shaw claims that the yearly grant “sowed the strong public support of basic arts, music, and science education.”

Conservation

In The (London) Sunday Times’ “Green Rich Ranking” (a list of the 100 wealthiest people who have either invested in green technologies or enterprises or have significantly subsidised environmental causes), he was rated ninth in March 2009. Bren’s inclusion on the list was made possible by his $20 million in gifts to the School of Environmental Science at UC Santa Barbara.

Bren gave 55,000 acres (220 km2) of property during a 30-year period for use as parks, greenways, leisure areas, and wilderness preserves. Bren’s objectives and promise to maintain more than 50% of the historic Irvine Ranch’s 93,000 acres are fulfilled by the donated acreage (380 km2). Of this, the Irvine Ranch National Natural Landmark, covering 40,000 acres (160 km2), was recognised.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governor of California, said during a ceremony in 2006 to commemorate this designation at Crystal Cove State Park “This gift that [Bren’s] given to [California] is just amazing. Donald Bren embodies the highest level of kindness. Not just what he provides to the environment, but also what he consistently gives back to the community, whether it be via his investments of tens of millions of dollars in the arts, music, education, or the environment to preserve it. He is a remarkable dude.”

Due to the land’s biological importance, the state of California also named it the first California Natural Landmark in 2008. Bren, a trustee of the California Institute of Technology, funded five Bren Scholars to assist emerging faculty. 

The Irvine Ranch Conservancy is in charge of managing the protected area, which was formerly a part of Irvine Ranch. Bren recently fulfilled his promise to dedicate more than 50,000 acres of the original 93,000-acre ranch as open space by donating 20,000 acres (81 km2) of open space and parkland to Orange County, California, in June 2010.

 The greatest donation of private land to public ownership in Orange County history, the gift was approved by the Board of Supervisors with a unanimous vote. He was honoured for giving Orange County more than 20,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness in the same year, with the condition that it always remain open space.

The Irvine Company announced plans to donate and protect 2,500 more acres of property that had previously been approved for housing in August 2014, boosting the percentage of the Irvine Ranch’s conserved areas to 60%. Speaking on Bren’s history of land gifts, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton remarked, “The Irvine Ranch exemplifies what cooperative conservation is all about.

In order to thoughtfully and purposefully create an environment where both people and wildlife can thrive, a conservation-minded corporate citizen is collaborating with local communities, The Nature Conservancy, federal and state agencies, The Nature Conservancy, private citizens, and other partners.

Research

Bren donated $2.5 million in 2007 to the La Jolla, California-based Burnham Institute for Medical Research. The gift created The Donald Bren Presidential Chair, and the funds were utilised to fund the Institute’s research on, among other things, diabetes, cancer, neurodegeneration, and paediatric disorders.

According to a 2011 interview, he is looking at solar energy as a potential humanitarian contribution. BREN QUOTED “In my opinion, solar energy may be the world’s most effective energy source. Based on what little I do know about it, I think there may be a chance for a breakthrough “Professorships in Ren.
