Adam Smith Timeline

Adam Smith Timeline

The 16th of June, 2018, marks 295 years since the birth of Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. Best known for two classic works, The Theory of Moral Sentiments and The Wealth of Nations, he is considered a pioneer of political economy and one of the chief figures of the Scottish Enlightenment period. With concerns that went beyond economy, he wanted to understand how the money system and capitalism worked so that a nation and its people could be prosperous and happy.

To celebrate the birthday of the great thinker whose works have laid the foundation of modern economics, we have created the Adam Smith Timeline, which illustrates some of the most important events and achievements in his life.

Born in Kirkcaldy, young Adam was encouraged by his mother to pursue his scholarly ambitions and proved to be a hardworking student. Soon after graduating from the University of Glasgow, he became an academic philosopher, lecturing on logic and aesthetics. His first work, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, was published in 1759 and dealt with how human morality relied on what he called mutual sympathy, a term best translated today by the concept of empathy. Upon publication, the book brought Smith so much praise and popularity that numerous wealthy students from other countries left their schools and came to Glasgow to study under his guidance.

His second published work, The Wealth of Nations, reflected upon the economics of the Industrial Revolution and developed important concepts such as free markets, the division of labor, and productivity. Offering one of the world’s first structured analyses of what builds a nation’s wealth, it served as the basis for the now classical free market theory and is the second most cited book in the social sciences written before 1950.

Through his thorough work and innovating ideas, Adam Smith has become a solid guide to a pressing dilemma of modern times, namely how to make a capitalist economy more humane and more meaningful.

The Adam Smith chronology was designed with Office Timeline, a simple to use plugin for PowerPoint that enables the fast creation of impressive timelines, Gantt charts and other project visuals. The tools is available in two versions, Free and Plus, with the former intended for building and editing simple graphics, and the latter giving access to extra features such as data import, customization and update functions.

Johnny Depp Timeline

Johnny Depp Timeline

Charismatic actor, musician and producer Johnny Depp turns 55 this Saturday. Considered as one of the world’s biggest movie stars, he was listed as the highest paid actor in the 2012 Guinness World Records and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2015. Committed to the task of challenging himself as a performer, Mr. Depp has portrayed a variety of roles that have become iconic for his fans, such as Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Brasco, Raoul Duke, and Capt. Jack Sparrow.

To celebrate his upcoming birthday, we have created the Johnny Depp Timeline - a brief visual biography that highlights several important life events and a few of the most popular films in which he was cast.

Although his name is almost instantly associated with Hollywood and cinema, Mr. Depp is a gifted musician too. Presently performing in the supergroup Hollywood Vampires along with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, he proved his musical skills through collaborations with artists and bands such as Marilyn Manson and Oasis, or for movie soundtracks like Chocolat and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

Depp’s love for music seems to have started long before he even considered acting. Dropping out of high school to pursue a career as a rock musician, he tried to resume school activity 2 weeks later, only to be told by the principal to follow his dreams. Heeding the advice, he soon started playing with a local band and expanded his circle of influence.

It was through his first wife, the sister of his band’s bass player, that Johnny Depp met actor Nicolas Cage who advised him to go into acting.

The Johnny Depp chronology was built with Office Timeline, an intuitive and user-friendly add-in for PowerPoint that helps you easily create, edit and update timelines, Gantt charts, schedules, and other similar visuals. You can copy and share the image for free and update or restyle it using the Plus edition of the tool.

Marilyn Monroe Timeline

Marilyn Monroe Timeline

On the 1st of June, 2018, American actress, singer and model Marilyn Monroe would have turned 92. One of the biggest sex symbols of the 1950s and best known for her comic blonde bombshell roles, Ms. Monroe managed to build a legacy that persists even to this day, more than half a century after her death.

To celebrate the birthday of one of the emblematic pop culture icons of the 20th century, we have created the Marilyn Monroe Timeline, which highlights some of the most notable events and achievements of her all-too-brief life and career.

Born as Norma Jeane Mortenson, she overcame an unfortunate childhood and worked in a radioplane factory until she was discovered by a photographer and began a fruitful pin-up modelling career. Soon afterwards, at the age of 20, she signed her first movie contract and adopted the stage name and signature look that would later establish her among Hollywood’s most popular celebrities.

Her earliest roles garnered the large public’s attention and contributed to her winning the status of sex symbol and top-billed actress of that time. However, they also diminished her acting scope as they focused on her sex appeal and insisted on the image of the “bubbly blonde”. Tired of being typecast and underpaid by the film studio to the profit of which she was bringing significant contribution, she left Hollywood for New York to study acting and found her own film production company.

Initially considered as lacking star acting material, Marilyn Monroe would return to the screen and prove her skills by winning two Golden Globes for Best Actress and various honors at European cinema award ceremonies. Monroe’s battle for control over her career was ridiculed in the press at first, but eventually yielded a successful outcome, with her contract being renegotiated and more favorable terms granted. Thus, she became more in charge of what movie projects to get involved in, which enabled her to display a richer range of acting skills.

Striving to improve her performance, the actress is said to have been a perfectionist on the set, a feature that made many of the co-stars label her as difficult to work with. Magnetic on the screen, controversial in personal life, Marilyn Monroe has been imitated by several celebrities over the years and continues to be admired for her beauty and persona.

The Marilyn Monroe chronology was built with Office Timeline, a simple to use yet efficient PowerPoint plugin that helps you generate impressive project schedules, timelines and other similar visuals with only a few clicks. The image is free to copy and share and can be edited or restyled using the Plus edition of the tool.

Jamie Oliver Timeline

Jamie Oliver Timeline

This Sunday, British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver turns 43. His rise to fame came at the age of 22, when he was noticed by the BBC after an unscripted appearance in a documentary about The River Café, where he was working as a sous chef. Shortly afterwards, he debuted as the host of the cooking show The Naked Chef, which ran for three seasons and three Christmas specials. His Mockney dialect, relaxed style and simplified approach to gourmet recipes won the viewers’ hearts and inspired more men to cook. After his break into television, the Clavering-born talent became an international phenomenon, starring into subsequent TV series, authoring several cookbooks and inaugurating multiple popular restaurant chains.

To celebrate Mr. Oliver’s 43rd birthday, we have created the Jamie Oliver Timeline, which illustrates important events, ventures and achievements in his life.

In addition to presenting successful TV cooking programs and launching his own line of cookware and restaurants, Jamie Oliver has also championed healthier eating habits for pupils in the UK. The show “Jamie’s School Dinners”, which documented his efforts to train a group of school cafeteria employees to prepare new and healthier dishes for students, helped him launch the campaign “Feed Me Better”. It advocated the improvement of the quality of food served in the UK’s schools and determined the British government to take measures in this respect, by increasing the amount spent on each school meal.

The Jamie Oliver chronology was designed using Office Timeline, an add-in for PowerPoint that helps you create professional timelines, Gantt charts and project visuals effortlessly. The tool is available in two versions, Free and Plus, with the former enabling you to build and edit simple graphics, and the latter coming with a higher degree of customization and extra features such as data import and update functions.

The Academy Awards Timeline

Academy Awards Timeline

The 16th of May, 1929, represents the date when the first edition of the Academy Awards took place. The event, also known as the Oscars, is held annually to recognize artistic and technical merits in the American cinema industry as assessed by the voting membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The ceremony, during which cinematic achievements from 24 categories are awarded, has served as a model for the Emmy Awards (its equivalent for television), the Tony Awards (theater) and the Grammy Awards (music).

To celebrate the world’s oldest entertainment awards ceremony, we have created the Academy Awards Timeline, which highlights a series of interesting facts from its history.

The inaugural edition of the Oscars was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with 270 people in the audience. Honoring participants in the film-making industry of the time for their works between 1927 and 1928, the first Academy Awards presentation ran for 15 minutes only. The winners received a gold-plated bronze statuette, now officially named Oscar, which was created by American sculptor George Stanley. For three years during World War II, because of a metal shortage, the statuettes were made of painted plaster. However, after the WWII was over, the Academy enabled the recipients to replace their plaster trophies with gold-plated metal ones.

Initially held within a private dinner function, the ceremony is now broadcast live in more than 200 countries.

The Academy Awards chronology was created with Office Timeline, an easy-to-use PowerPoint plugin that helps you quickly make elegant timelines, Gantt charts and other similar graphics. You can copy and share the image for free, and update and edit it using the Plus version of the tool.
