It was started in 1921 by his father, Dr. Amichand Shah, an eye surgeon who took up textiles as a side business. First they worked with handlooms, then power looms, and from the 1930s onwards it was jaccard looms. In the 1950s, <<Company>> began weaving viscose fabrics that were called artificial silks.

It was called “Barnack’s camera” back then. Oskar convinced his boss, Ernst Leitz II to go ahead with producing the camera and it was hugely successful. This German brand is a portmanteau word formed from parts of the founder’s name and the word, ‘camera’.

4) It has been a hit in Europe for several years and was launched in the United States on July 14, 2011. Listeners still need an invitation to join the free service; a limitation that the founder Daniel Ek says is required to control growth.

Its computer program lets people choose from any of 15 million songs for free — up to 10 hours worth of music per month — with each track listenable up to five times. Users who want to listen more must buy songs individually or pay a monthly fee. Subscribers also can store their music on their devices and listen when they’re offline.

Name this service started by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon in 2008 in Sweden.

5) Their first logo was inspired by their first treasurer, Serno Fenn, who was captivated by color-changing chameleons on a trip to China. The idea appealed to the company founder and in 1885, he decided to adopt the chameleon on a painter’s palette as the official logo. Some years later, the company adopted three chameleons from India and one of them, Jack, posed for photos to make illustrations. Name the brand.

8) Since moving to California many years ago, we have made amazing friends and experienced life changing opportunities. Our goal is to invest in the future of a state that has already given us so much.  We created this modest foundation to support education and conservation efforts here in the state of California. Our plan is to offer scholarships to children and grants to nonprofits but we won’t stop there.

Developing and running original programs in the San Francisco Bay area will allow us to have a direct and positive impact. We want others to share the rewards and opportunities we’ve found here in California.

Thanks,

In 2007, Dalio predicted that the housing-and-lending boom would end badly. Later that year, he warned the Bush Administration that many of the world’s largest banks were on the verge of insolvency. In 2008, a disastrous year for many of its rivals, the firm’s flagship Pure Alpha fund rose in value by nine and a half per cent after accounting for fees. Last year, the Pure Alpha fund rose forty-five per cent, the highest return of any big hedge fund.  Which firm?
