In 1940 owner Flora Levy had a historic ice cream parlor built named Borden’s ice cream parlor, located in La Fayette, Louisiana. In 1981 Flora Levy a lifelong resident of La Fayette, Louisiana died. Borden’s ice cream parlor had a long family history.

When Flora died she stipulated a large bequest to the University of Louisiana La Fayette’s Foundation in her will. Part of Levy’s bequest included the ice cream parlor. The Foundation held the title to the building and then they rented it to the manager who continued to operate the business. Borden’s had been passed down from generation to generation within the Levy family. Flora Levy’s mother had giving the parlor to her.

Borden’s ice cream parlor was sold by the Foundation in May 2009 to Red Lerille owner of La Fayette reds health club. Red brought the property with intentions to keep the local icon alive in their town. Red Lerille planned to make minor changes to the building adding a drive through and outdoor seating.

Red Lerille made his daughter Kackie Lerille the manager. Lerille was very interested in a mom-and-pop type of business like the ice cream parlor. Red quoted “ I believe it is the American Way but it is dying fast.” That location of Borden’s was actually the last Borden’s ice cream shop in the United States. Borden’s ice cream parlor is a Lafayette tradition and Red and his daughter intends on bringing it back to it’s original state.

Borden’s ice cream parlor has had a long family history. Elle Mae Meaux a former employee of 48 years prior to it being sold to the Lerille family stated, “Generations of families had come to Borden’s for the old-fashion ice cream experience, the sale of Borden’s ice cream parlor to the Lerille family ensures families will be able to continue with this experience for many years to come.

Vintage Fashions, a Way of Retaining Originality

...Vintage Fashions are a way of retaining individuality in the age of fast fashion-discuss In the age of fast fashion and mass production of garments vintage fashions have become increasingly popular as a way of escaping contemporary stereotypes and retaining individuality. However the acceptance of this ‘vintage look’ has made the fashion industry adopt it as a way of creating new collections therefore making it more accessible and less individualising than it originally was. The meaning behind vintage fashion has changed drastically in the last 50 years, formally being associated with poverty and the lower class, due to the fact that second hand clothing was very dirty and was often contaminated with diseases such as the plague. Even though this was the case second hand clothing was necessary for many people before the rise of ready to wear fashion, as emphasized by Caroline Evans (2007) “Second-hand dress has historically been associated with low economic status and class; long before there was a ready-to-wear industry, the second-hand trade clothed the poor, often in third-, fourth- and fifth-hand clothing”(2007:249). Clothes were very highly valued; they were passed down in wills and given as gifts, this was due to the fact that clothes were very expensive as all clothing was hand made. However in the 1960’s with the introduction of mass production when clothes were no longer as expensive they were also no longer one of a kind. After WW2, the age of make do and mend...

Miller High-Life Vintage Ad

...What better day to something about saving the eagles, than on the day of this country’s Independence Day. By having the product’s emblem and slogan the ad clearly uses logos. The bald eagle on the product’s emblem and products over the slogan, “Made the American Way”, clearly states this is a product for the American people. With the soaring bald eagle in danger of extinction, shows that our nation’s image is at risk and is worth saving. The “Help Miller High-Life Save America’s Eagles” is a strong ad. By using ethos, pathos and logos the author makes the reader aware of a possible national crisis and if we, Americans, would like to continue to enjoy freedom, liberty and independence consuming this product is the way to go. http://vintage-ads.livejournals.com/tag/alcohol...

Compare the Business Culture of the Uk with That of Japan.

...Japan, Buruma (1995) and Cleary (1991), examine religious history to help explain the particulars of Japanese behaviour in business. The second section will compare UK and Japanese business cultures using Hofstede and Trompenaars’ findings, to explain how negotiations between delegations would be affected. The third part of the essay will utilise this information, along with stories about cultural origins, to give advice to a UK team preparing for negotiations. It will be strongly suggested that they learn about both themselves and the Japanese, and from this understanding to draw out similarities as well as identify differences, as this will help dissolve the alienating concept of the “foreigner”. Nihonjinron Morrison, Conaway, and Borden (1994) summarise specific behaviours of people in 60 different nations, including the UK and Japan. They briefly look at each history and government structure, but focus mainly on particular actions in various situations, from everyday life to business negotiations. Although they do not explicitly analyse the data, the authors organise the information into similar formats for each country, enabling the reader to draw comparisons between the nations. From their studies, it is clear that there are many differences between the UK and Japan in the way they conduct business. Moreover, there is a clear link between business and everyday behaviours, strongly suggesting that business culture is closely tied to national culture. Following......

Rhetorical Analysis Vintage Ad Essay

...Rhetorical Analysis Vintage Ad Essay Crystal Cash DeVry University Rhetorical Analysis Vintage Ad Essay This Palmolive soap advertisement’s headline reads: "Let your beauty be seen.” While looking at this headline from a modern prospective, one might find such claims absurd. When one considers the context of the ad, and that this advertisement targeted the female demographic in America during the 1950’s it kind of makes sense that the ad may have been persuasive. The 50’s can be regarded as one of the happiest decades in American history, it was the end of World War two and the economy was expanding to a global standard. There were two forms of advertising in the 50’s era, pathos and logos. Looking at it from the 50’s perspective, the housewife wants to use this product to look appealing to her husband because in that time the women stayed at home and looked after the home while the men worked. In this ad, Palmolive targets the growing population of suburban women and uses rhetorical strategies that will appeal to emotion and logic. The primary focus of the ad is Palmolive’s appeal to emotion. The depiction of the housewife looking very beautiful with a flawless complexion and the doting husband apparently hanging on her shoulder admiring her beautiful complexion suggests that with this product you “too” can have an adoring husband admiring your new flawless complexion when you use Palmolive soap. In the text of the ad, it states how Palmolive’s beauty plan brings......

A Rhetorical Analyst of a Vintage 1930 Era Coca Cola Advertisement

...A Rhetorical Analyst of a Vintage 1930 era Coca Cola Advertisement From the early 1800s, advertisements have been used to portray certain ideas or to sell particular goods and services. You can still see its concept at work every day whether on television, in magazines, billboards, internet, and even hear them while listening to the radio. The Coca Cola Company has been one of the most infamous companies to arrive in mainstream America. Founded in 1886, Coca Cola has invested approximately over 2 billion dollars each year into its advertisements. People from every generation and walks of life could remember Coca Cola’s, “Delicious and Refreshing” (Coca Cola, 1930) iconic statement, which could be found underneath its name and on its logos. At Christmas, everyone look forward to seeing all of the different advertisements on television or gaze upon important figures such as Santa Claus in numerous magazines and during the summertime, watching everyday people at the beach, having fun or eating at a barbeque with very the drink as their choice of beverage.

Lizzie Borden

...Lizzie Borden Case The trial of Lizzie Borden is a very controversial topic and many believe the case verdict should have been ruled otherwise. The murder of Abby and Andrew Borden by multiple ax whacks to the head caused many to believe that Lizzie Borden, the daughter of Andrew Borden, did it. The case ruled ‘Not Guilty” on June 20, 1893. Based on research and evidence, I believe that Lizzie Borden was guilty because of her claimed whereabouts, the ironic poisoning coincidence, and the burning of a dress, which is the opposite of the actual court ruling in 1893. Lizzie Borden and the maid, Bridget Sullivan were the only ones home at the time of the murder of Abby Borden. Bridget was outside washing windows and Lizzie claimed to be downstairs. It’s strange that “she heard no alarming noises”. (Source J) In addition to that, there was no sign of forced entry. If an intruder committed the murders, they would have “had to hide in the house for 90 minutes or departed and then returned without being seen” (Source J) because the 2 murders happened over an hour apart. This would be nearly impossible if Lizzie was downstairs at the time of her stepmother’s murder. At the time of her father’s murder, she claimed to be in the loft of the backyard barn, searching for sinkers for a fishing trip for 15-20 minutes. The police said the loft was very hot and the “also found no footprints”(Source J) which contradicts Lizzie’s statement of where she was at the time of the murder of her......

Lizzie Borden

...The Lizzie Borden Trial Abstract The 1893 trial of Lizzie Borden has been analyzed by historians throughout the twentieth and now twenty first century. Particular interest has been placed on whether Lizzie Borden was guilty or innocent, given the considerable amount of time that has passed it would be irrational to speculate on the jury’s decision to acquit Lizzie. Focusing on the evidence obtained by the Fall River police department and District Attorney Hosea Knowlton we can obtain a better view of the events which occurred that fateful day in August, 1982. Why did the panel of judges disallow so much key evidence presented by the prosecution and could the actions of key courtroom figures have set free a guilty woman? The late nineteenth century would be a critical time in the evolution of substantive and procedural rights, including the right to remain silent for United States citizens. Today men and women enjoy equal rights in the eyes of the law but late in the nineteenth century things were much different, could the way men viewed women have set free a murderer? On a scorching 1892 August day in Fall River, Massachusetts, Andrew and Abby Borden were violently murdered in their home on Second Street. The Lizzie Borden trial held in 1893 attracted attention from nearly the entire United States with newspapers in New York City, Providence, and Boston publishing articles at a frenzied pace. The subsequent police investigation and trial of Lizzie Borden gained......

Coco-Cola Vintage Ad

...Coco-Cola Vintage Ad Elizabeth Hamilton Professor Smith Devry University March 28, 2014 Coco-Cola Vintage Ad Throughout its history Coco-Cola has always managed to use advertising as a powerful tool to create that special atmosphere in the minds of consumers that differentiates Coco-Cola from just some generic cola. In the past it was also extremely effective in advertising its product gaining a lot of market share and getting to the top of the market in terms of sales. The essay analyzes a vintage advertisement according to the rhetorical appeals of logos, ethos, and pathos and notes that Coco-Cola effectively uses appeals to authority, logic and emotions to make Coke a lifestyle, not just a drink. The vintage ad analyzed in the essay is a print ad that features the title Coco-Cola and the following text “Is a delightful palatable healthful beverage. It relives fatigue and is indispensable for business and professional men, students, wheelmen, athletes. It relieves mental and physical exhaustion. Is the favorite drink for ladies when thirsty, weary, despondent… Sold in bottles and at soda fountains for 5 cents. Newest refreshing drink in the world”. Clearly, the ad has many claims that nowadays would be consider illegal, inappropriate and simply false, yet back in the days, it was an example of what marketing was about : selling it at all cost even if it meant lying to the consumers. Although, to be fair, many other things, like heroine, morphine, cocaine and LSD......

Lizzie Borden Murders

...For the past century, the Murders of Andrew J. Borden and his wife Abby Borden became one of America’s obsessions. From the towns’ people of Fall River Massachusetts to the rest of the country, the Borden murders became the topic of interest. The case shocked the nation as Lizzie Borden- a 32 year old school teacher- was put on trial for the murders of her parents.

Andrew Borden, the richest man in Fall River, was found dead by his daughter Lizzie Borden, on a couch in the sitting area.

When Bridget came down, she found Lizzie at the back door and told Bridget to go get Dr. Bowen, who lived across the street. Dr. Bowen wasn’t home so Bridget told Mrs. Bowen that Mr. Borden had been murdered. When Bridget arrived back at the house she was sent to get Lizzie’s friend, Miss Alice Russell. While Bridget was going to get Miss. Russell, another neighbor, Mrs. Adelaide Churchill saw some commotion at the Borden house and went over to check it out.
