History[ edit ] Following the success of the first series of the American original of The Apprentice on NBC , which drew in considerable viewing figures, rumours began to surface that there was a possibility the programme could receive a UK version. In March , FremantleMedia confirmed that these rumours were true,  revealing that it was in negotiations to sell the rights to the UK franchise with two broadcasters – BBC and Channel 4. At the time, the broadcaster’s initial choices included Philip Green , Felix Dennis , and Michael O’Leary ,    but when approached to front the programme, each respectfully declined the offer given to them. Eventually, the BBC approached Alan Sugar as their next choice, and on 19 May , they announced that he had been chosen to head the programme’s first series. Candidate selection[ edit ] The show’s initial stage, which is not filmed, focuses on open auditions and interviews held across the country ; this stage searches for the candidates for a series before filming of it begins, which often attracts thousands of applicants. Following this, between 20 and 30 applicants are chosen and given an assessment by a psychologist, receiving further checks by the production team and providing them with references, before the final line-up is selected from this group and filming can begin. The number of candidates who appear in a series has varied over the show’s history, though always consists of a balanced number of men and women, with the exception of the fifth series in which a candidate was forced to drop out before filming began, leaving little time for a replacement to be found. For the first two series, fourteen candidates were selected to take part, before this figure was increased to sixteen between the third and ninth series to allow for multiply firings to occur at Lord Sugar’s discretion. To mark the tenth series of the show, the production team allowed twenty candidates to take part, the highest number of participants across any variation of The Apprentice. Between the eleventh to the thirteenth series, the production team selected eighteen candidates to take part in the show, before deciding to return to sixteen candidates prior to the start of the fourteenth series.

Khachkars are an art — decorative-architectural sculptures based on the ancient national traditions and made in a variety of shapes An Armenian Khachkar Armenian cross-stones Khachkars are outdoor steles carved from stone by craftspeople in Armenia and communities in the Armenian diaspora. They act as a focal point for worship, as memorial stones and as relics facilitating communication between the secular and divine.
Once finished, the Khachkar is erected during a small religious ceremony. After being blessed and anointed, the Khachkar is believed to possess holy powers and can provide help, protection, victory, long life, remembrance and mediation towards salvation of the soul. Khachkar craftsmanship is transmitted through families or from master to apprentice, teaching the traditional methods and patterns, while encouraging regional distinctiveness and individual improvisation.

The following is a list of candidates from the British reality television series The Apprentice.. Candidates are listed alphabetically by series; individual candidate .
Darth Sidious, a Force-sensitive human male , was the Dark Lord of the Sith who founded the Galactic Empire after toppling its predecessor, the Galactic Republic from within. Prior to his term as Supreme Chancellor and subsequent reign as the Galactic Emperor , Sidious was born approximately eighty-four years before the Battle of Yavin and given the name Sheev Palpatine during the Age of the Republic.
A native of the Mid-Rim planet Naboo , Palpatine pursued a career in politics and eventually became his homeworld ‘s representative in the Galactic Senate. Although he cultivated the persona of an honest and trustworthy public servant, Senator Palpatine was an ambitious Sith Lord who learned the ways of the dark side of the Force during his secret apprenticeship under Darth Plagueis. Following in a lineage of Dark Lords that began with Darth Bane , who reformed the Sith a millennium prior to the Fall of the Republic , Sidious spent years conspiring to restore his Order to galactic dominance.
After killing his Sith Master , he trained an apprentice of his own, the Dathomirian assassin Darth Maul in accordance with the Rule of Two —Bane’s decree that there should only be two Sith Lords at any given time. Despite the loss of his apprentice during the Battle of Naboo , Sidious’ plans proceeded apace with the aid of Maul’s replacement—the fallen Jedi Master Count Dooku , who assumed the name of Darth Tyranus after turning away from the Jedi Order he once served.
Together, Master and apprentice engineered a secessionist movement that tore the thousand-year democratic union asunder, leaving the galaxy divided and on the brink of war between the Republic and the newly-formed Confederacy of Independent Systems. Hence, in 22 BBY the galaxy fell into a state open war for the first time since the formation of the Republic.
Having masterminded the conflict, Sidious was able to control both governments throughout the Clone Wars. The attempt ultimately failed, however, due to the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker , whom Sidious influenced into betraying the Jedi. Replacing the late Tyranus with Skywalker, who adopted the name of Darth Vader as Sidious’ third and final apprentice, the Sith Lords initiated Order 66 and, therefore, began a systematic purge that all but annihilated the Jedi Order.

The Rules Revisited I’ve dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men. If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female’s ignorance of the male mindset. At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex.
Sunday, February 17, Female Game for Women in Their 30s [This is the third of a three-part series that describes how to focus your dating efforts in your teens, twenties and thirties. Making yourself as attractive as possible Making yourself approachable Filtering out the men that just want to have sex with you from the men that want to date you While these general stages apply to all women, a woman’s age, experience and eligibility should factor heavily into her approach to dating if she wants to eventually find a man to settle down with.
Therefore, various aspects of these three stages – or the components of each one – are more or less important at different times in a woman’s life. As a girl in your thirties, you are past or moving out of your most eligible years, and should adapt your game accordingly.
