"Levi Strauss started the business at the 90 Sacramento Street address in San Francisco. He next moved the location to 62 Sacramento Street then 63 & 65 Sacramento Street. Jacob Davis, a Latvian Jewish immigrant, was a Reno, Nevada tailor who frequently purchased bolts of cloth made from denim from Levi Strauss & Co.' s wholesale house. After one of Davis' customers kept purchasing cloth to reinforce torn pants, he had an idea to use copper rivets to reinforce the points of strain, such as on the pocket corners and at the base of the button fly. Davis did not have the required money to purchase a patent, so he wrote to Strauss suggesting that they go into business together."

Depending on the contract, other events such as terminal illness or critical illness can also trigger payment. The policy holder typically pays a premium, either regularly or as one lump sum.

"The Ferry-Morse Seed Company is a supplier of seeds, and was at one time the largest such company in the world. It is currently part of Jiffy International. In 1856, Milo T. Gardner, Dexter M. Ferry, and Eber F. Church organized a small seed-growing company, M. T. Gardner & Company (also known as Gardner, Ferry, and Church) in Detroit, Michigan. The first year the company did $6,000 in business. Its profits continued to be stable until 1865, when Ferry bought out Gardner's share and took over the company. Ferry changed the company name to Ferry, Church & Co, and two years later, when Church retired, Ferry changed the name again, this time to D. M. Ferry & Co."

The dust jacket is crisp and clean. For eighteen seasons Fran Tarkenton - who, as a professional athlete not possessed of extraordinary natural talent, elevated scrambling to an art form - passed, hustled, and scrapped his way into the NFL Hall of Fame. Yet, despite his legendary vigor, he was the losing quarterback in three Super Bows and the association of the world loser with hisname has been difficult to dissolve. This image of failure might long since have withered Tarkenton's subsequent endeavors had it not been for his savvy business mind and willingness to take risks." "Francis Asbury Tarkenton (born February 3, 1940) is a former NFL quarterback, television personality, and computer software executive. He is best known for playing with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants, as well as serving as a commentator on Monday Night Football and a co-host of That's Incredible! . At the time of his retirement he owned every major quarterback record. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986." ; Signed by Author
