Charles (Charlie) Jones was born in Troedyrhiw on 12th December, 1899. He joined Cardiff City in 1920 but after playing in only one first-team game he moved to Stockport County. In his first season with the club he helped them win the Third Division North championship (1921-22).

In March 1923 Jones joined Oldham Athletic in the First Division. However, he failed to prevent them being relegated at the end of the 1922-23 season. Jones scored 5 goals in 56 games before joining Nottingham Forest in 1925.

Jones had developed into a skillful winger and was selected to play for Wales against England on 1st March 1926. Jones had a great game in his country's 3-1 victory.

In May 1928 Herbert Chapman paid a four-figure sum for Jones. Soon afterwards Chapman signed David Jack, Cliff Bastin and Alex James. They joined a team that included Herbert Roberts, Eddie Hapgood, Tom Parker, Bob John, Alf Baker, Dan Lewis, George Male, Jimmy Brain, Joe Hulme and Jack Lambert.

Herbert Chapman gradually adapted the "WM" formation that he had introduced when he first came to the club. Herbert Roberts was the centre-half who stayed in the penalty area to break down opposing attacks. Chapman used his full-backs, Eddie Hapgood and Tom Parker, to mark the wingers. This job had previously been done by the wing-halves, who now concentrated on looking after the inside-forwards. Bob John and Alf Baker were the men he used in these positions. Dan Lewis was the goalkeeper in what became known as "defence-in-depth". The young George Male was often used if any of the full-backs or wing-halves were injured.

Pulling the centre-half back left a gap in midfield and so Chapman needed a link man to pick up the ball from defence and to pass it on quickly to the attackers. This was the job of Alex James, who had the ability to make accurate long low passes to goalscoring forwards like Charle Jones, David Jack, Jimmy Brain, Joe Hulme, Cliff Bastin and Jack Lambert. Chapman told the other forwards to go fast, like "flying columns" and if possible to make for goal direct.

Success was not immediate and Arsenal finished in 14th place in the 1929-30 season. Jones missed only three league games that season. They did much better in the FA Cup. Arsenal beat Birmingham City (1-0), Middlesbrough (2-0), West Ham United (3-0) and Hull City (1-0) to reach the final against Chapman's old club, Huddersfield Town. Unfortunately, he was not selected for this game.

Herbert Chapman decided to move Jones to right-half for the 1930-31 season. Arsenal won their first five matches and did not lose until the tenth game. Aston Villa took a narrow lead but in November, 1930, Arsenal beat them 5-2 at Highbury with Cliff Bastin and David Jack scoring twice and Jack Lambert once. Sheffield Wednesday now went on a good run and for a while had a narrow lead over Arsenal. However, a 2-0 win over Wednesday in March took them to the top of the league. This was followed by victories over Grimsby Town (9-1) and Leicester City (7-2).

When Arsenal beat Liverpool 3-1 at Highbury they became the first southern club to win the First Division title. The Gunners won 28 games and lost only four and obtained 66 points, six more than the previous best total and seven more than their nearest rivals, Aston Villa.

Jones won a second First Division championship medal when playing in 16 games in the 1932-33 season. Jones was even more important in the 1933-34 season when he played in 29 league games to win his third championship medal.

Charlie Jones retired from football in the summer of 1934. He had scored seven goals in 71 league games for Arsenal. He was briefly manager of Notts County before becoming a successful businessman.

Charlie Jones died in April 1966.

A teenage Charlie Parker has a cymbal thrown at him

O ne night in 1937, a teenage musician called Charlie Parker joined a queue of players waiting to jam onstage at Kansas City's Reno Club. It was a special occasion. A star guest in the rhythm section was Jo Jones, drummer for Count Basie's Orchestra, one of the biggest swing bands in the US.

Charlie Parker thought his moment had come, 16 years old or not. He had been practising an improv method of his own, deploying keys rarely used in jazz tunes, and modulating between them to free up new ways of phrasing – and he'd bought a new Selmer saxophone. When his turn came, he blew a chorus over the chords of I Got Rhythm that Jones, to judge by the warming of his wave-like cymbal sound, seemed to like. Then Parker introduced a passing chord, improvised fluently in a new key, and sensed the audience's and the band's intrigued surprise.

But now he'd left the world he knew. A college-trained musician could have called out the next chord to him in an instant, but Parker was a high school dropout making it up for himself. While Jones's pulse surged on behind him, the teenager lost the tune, and then the beat. Jones stopped, and Parker froze, clutching his gleaming new saxophone. Jones contemptuously threw a cymbal at his feet, and the reverberations were followed by the sound of laughter and catcalls. Ross Russell, Charlie Parker's biographer, has the teenager leaving the club saying to himself, "I'll be back" and he kept his promise – not only returning to square things with doubters, but to show everybody with an open mind and open ears a new kind of 20th-century music-making.

Charlie Parker (nicknamed "Yardbird" or usually just "Bird" in the jazz world) was the JS Bach of jazz an instinctive master of complex harmony with a dizzying melodic ingenuity to match, who became a messiah to the hipster and beat poetry generation of the late 1940s and early 50s. When he died – broke and broken down by self-neglect and dangerous addictions – at the age of only 34, graffiti artists scrawled "Bird Lives!" on Harlem walls.

He was born in Kansas City in 1920 and raised by a devoted single mother, Addie. She gave her son his first sax when he was 13, and the following year Charlie was hanging out in the city's clubland listening to his saxophone hero Lester Young and others while Addie was at work as a night cleaner. He mostly skipped formal education, but schooled himself on the saxophone with Young as his model. He learned to play in every key because he didn't know jazz musicians only used a few – and with a little help from some older Kansas musicians, figured out how to shift between keys within solos. In 1939 (a couple of years after the Reno Club nightmare and already married, divorced, the father of a son, and struggling with a drugs and booze habit that had begun in his teens), Parker joined Jay McShann's band and stayed with them until 1942.

At Minton's Playhouse, a Harlem jamming joint, Parker met such like-minded young swing dissidents as drummer Kenny Clarke, former church pianist Thelonious Monk, Benny Goodman's star guitarist Charlie Christian and the harmonically advanced trumpeter John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie. In the small hours at Minton's, bebop, or just bop, was forged.

To unprepared musicians and audiences, bop could sound at first as if soloists had arrived in the wrong places, forgotten to resolve phrases, used chords too stacked with extra notes to play on, and perversely accented traditionally weak beats instead of strong ones. Many established stars, including Louis Armstrong, hated it. But bop was eventually recognised as a natural progression from the jazz that had gone before. From 1944 on, partnered by Gillespie and, later, by a teenage Miles Davis, Parker created some of the most dynamic jazz in the music's history, with tunes such as Now's the Time, Ornithology, Billie's Bounce, Yardbird Suite and Ko-Ko often scribbled on scraps of paper on the way to sessions, or during warm-ups.

Some fans felt that bop shifted jazz away from dance music to highbrow art, but with rock'n'roll around the corner, that was inevitable – and what was often regarded as a cerebral and wilfully complex music back then sounds as natural as whistling now. Some played bop blues-drenched and impassioned like Parker some played it quiet and cool, like pianist Lennie Tristano and saxophonists Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh. It could be dissected and juggled, as practised by Ornette Coleman, or it could turn up in the rock music of Frank Zappa or Steely Dan. Contemporary players, such as American saxophonist Joe Lovano or British pianist Django Bates, can revisit Parker's timeless themes in ways that cherish the tradition while being totally fresh. That defiant proclamation "Bird Lives!" is as true now as it was in 1955.

American Football League/National Football League

Jones began his sportscasting career at local television and radio stations in Fort Smith, before signing on as a broadcaster for the fledgling Dallas Texans of the American Football League in 1960. Jones also began calling AFL games for ABC that year.

In 1965, he moved to NBC, continuing to broadcast the AFL and later the National Football League. He would work NFL games until 1997, when NBC lost their NFL (AFC) broadcasting rights to CBS. Among Jones' notable broadcasts was in January 1993 when he covered the Buffalo Bills vs. Houston Oilers wildcard game, in which the Bills rallied from a 35-3 second half deficit to defeat the Oilers in overtime.

In 1997, Jones was awarded the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award. He also received an Emmy Award in 1973 for his part as writer, producer and host of the documentary Is Winning the Name of the Game? Ώ]

Other broadcasting duties and appearances

During his time at NBC, Jones also broadcast the 1988 Summer Olympics, 1986 FIFA World Cup, 1991 Ryder Cup, 1992 Summer Olympics and 1996 Summer Olympics, as well as Major League Baseball, PGA Tour golf, and Wimbledon tennis. He was the play-by-play announcer for the 1986 college football national championship, where Penn State defeated Miami 14-10 in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl. He also was the announcer for auto races including the 1988 Meadowlands Grand Prix.

He was also a play-by-play announcer for the Cincinnati Reds in 1973, the California Angels in 1990, and the Colorado Rockies from 1993-95.

In the mid-1970s, he hosted Almost Anything Goes, The American Frontier, and Pro-Fan.

Charlie Yates Golf CourseOur History

In 1904, the Atlanta Athletic Club established the first golf course in the city of Atlanta at East Lake. The course was designed by Tom Bendelow and completed in 1908. In 1913, the Club decided to completely rearrange the course and hired famed architect Donald Ross to design the course. The remodeled course featured a routing plan that provided each nine holes to conclude at the clubhouse.

This was the era where famed golfer Bobby Jones would come to learn to play golf at East Lake, his home course. In 1930, Jones went on to win the Grand Slam of golf, winning the British Amateur, British Open, US Amateur and US Open all in the same calendar year, a feat which has never been repeated.

Donald Ross also designed the “new” No. 2 course in 1928. That No. 2 course was opened on May 31, 1930, to coincide with the final day of Bob Jones’ victorious British Amateur championship match. The course was located right across the street from East Lake’s main course.

Not long after the club hosted the 1963 Ryder Cup, the outlook for East Lake began to change. The surrounding neighborhood deteriorated as the 1960s fell victim to white flight and urban decay. The Atlanta Athletic Club became part of that flight when it sold the “Number 2” course to developers and moved to its present home in Duluth. The original course and clubhouse were saved when a group of 25 members purchased them and began operation as the newly formed East Lake Country Club in 1968.

In 1993 a local charitable foundation purchased East Lake with the intent to restore it as a tribute to Bobby Jones and the club’s other great amateur golfers.

As a teenager he played in local bands before being asked by friends to help record their eponymous single 'Recorded Delivery', in 1981. Jones also attended Robert Plant's performance for the music television programme The Tube at Milton Keynes on 22 June 1983 (which was eventually canned due to Plant's disappointment with the sound quality). Jones then formed gothic rock band Violent Blue with guitarist Neil Taylor (Tears for Fears) releasing a single and album with Magnet records.

When Bill Curbishley took over management of Robert Plant's post-Led Zeppelin solo career in August 1986, one of the first decisions they made was to assemble a far younger line-up for Plant to perform and record with. In the summer of 1987, Jones was invited to join Plant's band, who were in the middle of recording Now and Zen at Swanyard Studios in London dockland's, replacing bass player Phil Scragg who was unavailable to tour. [1] To date, Jones remains the longest continuous serving musician in any Robert Plant led line-up, staying with him until Plant formed Priory of Brion in July 1999. He is not related to musician John Paul Jones.

On 18 May 1991, Jones married Plant's daughter Carmen Plant, at St. Peter's Church, Kidderminster. Their wedding reception was held in a series of marquees at Robert's farm at Kidderminster. Roy Harper's song 'Evening Star' was written for Carmen for the occasion. They have three children, their eldest a daughter named Sunny Plant-Jones (born 1993), with the family now residing in Bath, Somerset.

Jones was also a member of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's backing group for their recordings and tours, and Plant's Strange Sensation band. [2] He helped co-write the song 'Please Read the Letter', that appeared on Robert Plant and Alison Krauss album Raising Sand, which won Record of the Year at the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009.

Since 2003, Jones has been a member of Goldfrapp, and has gone into music production and session work for other artists. [3] Jones released his debut solo album Love Form (Stranger Records), on 16 September 2013, which highlighted his jazz and classical influences. Strange Sensation's keyboard player John Baggott and drummer Clive Deamer, along with singer Allison Goldfrapp contributed to the recording.

Matt has worked tirelessly to raise the necessary funding, to assemble a team of scholars, to promote the importance of the Persepolis Fortification Archive to academic and popular audiences, and most significantly, to concisely, passionately, and convincingly place the Persepolis Archives in their Achaemenid, ancient Near Eastern, and modern geo-political contexts. The twenty-six papers from Stolper's colleagues, friends, and students show the breadth of his interests.

This is the first volume (text and plates) of the analytically legible seals (ca. 1,162) retrieve. more This is the first volume (text and plates) of the analytically legible seals (ca. 1,162) retrieved through many thousands of full or partial impressions preserved on the 2,087 Elamite administrative tablets recovered during the 1930s excavations at Persepolis, Iran, and published by Richard T. Hallock (OIP92) in 1969. The tablets are dated by date formulae in the texts to the years 509-494 B.C. in the reign of Darius the Great. The remaining and forthcoming two volumes are entitled: Seals on the Persepolis Fortification Tablets, Volume II: Images of Human Activity Seals on the Persepolis Fortification Tablets, Volume III: Animals, Creatures, Plants, and Geometric Devices. Volume I introduces the archive and documents the 312 seals of heroic encounter (retrieved via 1,970 impressions) with high quality composite drawings and a separate volume of 291 halftone and line plate illustrations presented at a scale of 2:1. Entries provide commentary on administrative, social, stylistic, and iconographical features of the seals as well as systematic analysis of seal application patterns. The thirty-four seal inscriptions are presented by Charles E. Jones. Twelve appendices richly synthesize formal and iconographical data and integrate the seals with their associated texts. This major corpus offers extraordinary new material for the study of art and social history in the Achaemenid Persian Empire.

This publication systematically describes ancient-world information resources on the world-wide w. more This publication systematically describes ancient-world information resources on the world-wide web. The bibliographic data presented herein has been programmatically extracted from the content of AWOL - The Ancient World Online (ISSN 2156-2253) and formatted in accordance with a structured data model. In continuous operation since 2009, AWOL is a blog authored by Charles E. Jones, Tombros Librarian for Classics and Humanities at the Pattee Library, Penn State University.

This publication, The AWOL Index, is an experimental project, developed jointly by Jones and Tom Elliott, the Associate Director for Digital Programs at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW), with the assistance of Pavan Atri, Roger Bagnall, Dawn Gross, Sebastian Heath, Gabriel McKee, Ronak Parpani, David Ratzan, and Kristen Soule.

Creation of The AWOL Index was made possible by a grant from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.

We extract information from AWOL about both top-level and subordinate resources. Subordinate resources are those we deduce to be "part of" another resource (e.g., a single issue of a journal or a sub-section of a website). Top-level resources are the opposite: those resources described by AWOL for which we have detected no containing/superior resource.

The latest data extraction was performed on 9 July 2015. At that time, our software successfully extracted 1,301 top-level and 50,704 subordinate resources. For 94% percent of the top-level resources it was able to extract a textual description substantively different from the resource title. Dates of individual source posts in AWOL vary between 2009 and 2015 therefore, content in The AWOL Index will only be as current as the original blog post was on the day of extraction.
