"Da, was highly regarded as a genius and beloved for his east-central City and often guard designed tendencies. He was also known for his erratic quirky brilliance this brilliance hinge on the simplicity of his concept, and that was to make t shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts the basics in your closet seen exciting. And although that may not seem like a big deal now back. Then this was a fiercely new idea. American apparels I claim to fame was dirk. classically chic. Why frontier shirts that seem timeless the teaser cool. Very expensive and emblematic of the new made in America attitude. The clothes were propped up by the hipster generation and warned by the Uber high fashion fashion as does and celebrities across the world. Chinese dealing started you know Google or maybe even. In the world of fashion. Time that was Elizabeth Seagram a reporter for fast, company who had covered. American. Apparel and other fashion brands quite extensively and quoted frequently for her commentary on the fashion retail industry I think the very first thing that was so interesting about it is by Charney founder. Really focused on bringing fashion manufacturing back to the United States, which was pretty radical idea because for so many years All of the different free trade agreements in the world has made it easier for American companies manufacture overseas, and because he had radical idea at the time of setting up evacuees and in the United States where he could stop by the factory regularly, I kinda give consumers insight into the manufacturing. Base that oppose. Dobbs decision to take its manufacturing operations from Mexico to the United States more specifically. L. A. was nothing short of revolutionary. At. The apex of its popularity. American. Apparel was the biggest retailer manufacturer in the nation with brick and mortar stores in the world's trendiest neighborhoods from La to London to Tokyo. It was without question the dog was a visionary for the art of Merchandising and marketing. But. With this genius also brought plenty of baggage creating controversies that would tear the company apart. At, its height American apparel had over two hundred stores in over twenty countries. But there was always a blemish a stain on the American apparel success story which came from its founder. It was no secret that Dav despite his passion on progressive issues like equality in the workforce and liberalising immigration policies had a pension for lust and lewdness to put it mildly. This prince however never quite was enough of an issue to overshadow the brilliance of his operations in the public eye. On the surface DAV and the American Apparel Brand excelled with the paying fair wages and having the foresight to vertically integrate their operations meaning that the manufacturing distribution and retail was all done from within this allowed them to create more control on their costs and generate more profit margins that were significantly higher than its competitors and it was refreshing this sweatshop free garment. Came across as anti establishment and set it apart from the picture perfect stuffiness of the fashion industry, and if you think about it, if he lost his first t shirts in nineteen, ninety one which is very much like a were all the manufacturing in. America when it came to Pearl happening in China and and then eventually get down in Southeast Asia and so you know he he had this notion that like there was a time when. Closed workmate here locally in the United States and He wanted to. See, we could be out again and he was also against. His own. kind of creative instincts, right. So she she created these clothes that world very basic. You know now twenty years later basics are sort of everywhere all a-. Brands has emerged that sell high-quality basic but you know at the time in the nineties like the idea of creating a simple black T. shirt with the logo was a very unusual thing. This time when Mogo mania was all the rage. She works with. Very. Loud playful. Most people were wearing and so he basically pushing back against. The norms in fashion. But what was pervasive throughout was also the rumors about dove who as a leader of his empire was known for his tantrums his cruel spirit that would frequently rear its ugly head. Including the time and this was early on the company's success when it boldly launched a campaign of billboard featuring an image from the nineteen seventy, nine film Annie Hall of Woody Allen Dressed as a Hasidic rabbi beneath Yiddish tax the problem was American apparel never got permission to use Allen's likeness. It was enough to get the attention of woody himself who sued the company and called out their advertisements as sleazy and infantile eventually settling for a whopping five million dollar payout. When the two thousand and eight global recession hit everyone felt the blow as major retailers like neiman Marcus and saks fifth avenue all got hit with double digit sales declines. American Powell was no exception while the company charged a premium for its feel good ethical approach. Many consumers were now struggling with rationalizing these expensive basics during a time of such financial duress despite that the company continued its expansion around the world reporting one of their most profitable years in two, thousand and nine. However, what really took a chunk out of their foundation was when a year leader in two, thousand, ten, it's auditor deloitte and Touche resigned citing tyrian weaknesses in the financial control of the company dating back to two thousand nine. As you can imagine, that was pretty damning indication that things were about to get very ugly. And then there was a series of private equity deals that change the trajectory of the company's feet including a deal with lion capital. While two thousand and nine on paper was a solid year for American apparels prophets. It was also a pivotal year for other reasons despite the huge sales American apparel was facing a lot of financial burdens including huge loans that they had taken out to fund their expansion across the globe, which led to over a hundred eleven million dollars in debt. Desperate to avoid chapter eleven bankruptcy eighteen percent of the company was sold to private equity firm Lion Capital which made them highly leveraged, hardly ideal position to be in given. What would come next? That same year as if things couldn't get any worse American apparel got. With a police raid on its factory that revealed close to two thousand illegal immigrants working there..

"Realization of what the war have done to the Kalinga people most described the moment that he converted to Buddhism but it seems that conversion had really happened at least a couple of years earlier so he didn't suddenly become Buddhist after looking back on what he had done in this war he did though more fully dedicated himself to Buddhist principles before that he just went on Easter. It would be really reductive to try to sum up an entire religion in a paragraph. Obviously and Please I hope nobody thinks my reverence of Easter is disrespectful to Buddhism But to explain a joke as outlook we do need to explain some terminology particularly Dharma. The word Dharma is used to describe the Buddha's teachings and the knowledge contained in them which is also called the Buddha Dharma Dharma is also a concept in both Buddhism Hinduism with different nuances in each religion Sometimes you will hear people try to translate. This word are really simple way. But in these contexts. The word Dharma really doesn't have one precise equivalent in English and it's also evolved in its meaning in the centuries since a shoka lives then to further complicate things. Ah Shoka it used the word Dhamma with two M's instead of d. h. a. r. m. a. that came from the proximate dialect of Sanskrit. And he didn't use this word in a way that exactly equated to the Buddhist concept of Dharma but it was related in Buddhism Dharma incorporates concepts like Duty Morality Law and righteousness into one idea in one of a showcase edicts. He Describes Dhamma this way quote. Noble Deeds of Dhamma and the practice of Dhamma consists of having kindness generosity truthfulness purity gentleness and goodness increase among people in other places. A SHOKA frames. This paternal way referring to his subjects as his children. So you can see some can not exactly overlap but you can see some relation in these two ideas. But they're definitely not the exact same thing after a show. Cops saw the results of his conquest of Kalinga. He absolutely devoted himself to ruling. According to this idea of Dhamma one of his Queens Karake was credited with influencing him in this direction. One of his first acts after making this change was to take two hundred fifty six day tour of his territory. A lot of folks have made different interpretations of the significance of that number of days on this tour. He distributed wealth and delivered addresses about his newfound dedication to Dhamma. And what it meant for the empire from there he took regular Dhamma tours of the empire which involved quote and gifts to Brahmins and aesthetics visits and gifts of gold to the aged visits to people in the countryside instructing them in Donna and discussing Dhamma with them as suitable Dhamma was threaded all through every aspect of shock government. All of its actions and decisions would be influenced by Dhamma which was non violent and stressed social responsibility and respect for others. His ministers would be agents of Dhamma. He would appoint ambassadors whose role was not just maintaining diplomatic relationships with other nations but also to spread the Dhamma he had special ministers whose whole duty was to spread the Dhamma. He wanted disagreements among nations to be settled. According to a nonviolent approach through Dhamma not through war if war was completely unavoidable he wanted the belligerence to behave in an ethical manner and for the victors to behave in adjust compassionate way toward the defeated a showcase dedication to Dhamma was so complete that some sources have described him as a zealot but he wasn't intolerant of other religions. He does seem to hope that his subjects will become Buddhist or at least followed their own religions in a way that was compatible with Buddhism and Dhamma but he also described honoring another person's religion as an aspect of honoring one's own. He encouraged each person to follow their own religious traditions. So long as doing so was compatible with Dhamma for example he banned ritual animal sacrifice which was part of the tradition in the imperial capital of Potala Putra. He also discouraged a number of rituals and ceremonies including ones that were performed on occasions like births deaths and marriages because he thought that a life of moral conduct and adherence to Dharma was more important than these kinds of observances however he seems to have been less tolerant of diversity. Within Buddhism there are several counts of his carrying out purges of dissenting monks within Buddhist religious communities or Songa one of the edicts he issued is known as the schism edict and threaten to expel monks. That caused dissent within their orders. Another aspect of show concept of Dhamma was making sure the people in his empire were well and cared for he embarked on the expansion of the Empire's public works. He built a network of roads to foster trade and commerce and he had wells public rest houses and mango and bannon groves planted alongside them to provide shelter water food shade. He also built irrigation systems and dams and ordered the cultivation of medicinal plants. He established programs to help the poor and the elderly and encouraged the population to be frugal in their personal spending but generous toward priests aesthetics and the poor. He established medical practices for people and for animals and if he discovered that people in a particular area didn't have the medicinal herbs or other supplies that they needed he sent them. He had so much. Focus on all of this that sometimes the Marian Empire under his rule as described as the first welfare state he also called on judicial officers to take care to be fair and merciful so that the people living under their Laura wouldn't be imprisoned unjustly or treated harshly while imprisoned. And he's up sort of an audit system where officials known as Mahama's would inspect the judicial system in each city every five years to make sure it was functioning in adjust and humane way a Shoka also approached the royal household and his personal conduct according to the Dhamma he greatly reduced and may have entirely eliminated the killing of animals for meat in the Royal Kitchens. He made donation to Buddhist sects. He did continue to have multiple queens in a Harem of concubines. Something that didn't really align with Buddhism but it was really typical at the time of heart from the reduction in meat consumption and the royal household a- Shoka also declared a lot of animals to be protected including parrots. Ready Geese Wild Ducks Queen ants wild and domestic pigeons porcupines squirrels deer and quote all four footed creatures that are neither useful nor edible. He also declared very young animals to be protected and goats us in sales that were producing milk whether or not they were feeding their young and he decreed that animals could not be castrated on specific days. Many of these acts and decrees are documented in at least thirty three inscriptions in and around what used to be the Marion Empire. They were carved into things like boulders. Rock faces cave walls and quarried polished pillars. Some based on their position may have been boundary markers or notifications to travelers who were entering Marian territory. Others are at places that had Buddhist religious significance or were important cities during a joke as rain today. These inscriptions are collectively known as the edicts of Ashoka and they're located around what's now India Nepal Pakistan and Afghanistan. He could make the point. That shoka made these. He was definitely talking about his intent and not necessarily how successfully all of this was carried out. And also I if I were making inscriptions about my work as an emperor I would probably make myself sound really good. We just We don't have a lot of clear impartial. Unbiased sources about a SHOKA. So just keep that in mind I spoke had. All these inscriptions made in three phases. The first the minor rock edicts were made in the eleventh or Twelfth Year of his rule or roughly two eight BC. The major rock edicts were in the twelfth or thirteenth year or about two fifty seven BC. All of the rock edicts were the ones that were carved into boulders and cliff faces and cave walls then the third phase of all this the pillar edicts those recreated starting in the twenty sixth year of his rule or about to forty three the quarried pillars measured about forty feet tall and then some were topped with a statue of an animal like a lion or an elephant or a bull today. The official emblem of India is a rendition of the lion capital of a Shoka which is the capital of a show cause pillar in Sarnath.
