William Christian Sellé (also known as Wilhelm Kristian Sellé) was a Victorian doctor of music, composer and for forty years Musician in Ordinary to her Majesty Queen Victoria.
William Christian Sellé was born in Benhall, Suffolk in 1813, and was the son of a musician Christian Sellé who had left Hanover with Viotti a celebrated violinist, for reason of an opportunity to join the private band of the 15th Light Dragoons of Ernest Augustus Duke of Cumberland who was then residing at the royal residence in Kew and was forming a band of mainly German musicians. His Mother Elizabeth Underwood was from a farming family in Suffolk. Sellé was bilingual from an early age.
Sellé began his musical education at a young age. He was placed under the tutelage of another of the Duke of Cumberland’s musician, a man named Platt. At fifteen he became a pupil of Cipriani Potter, at that time the principal of the Royal Academy of Music where he specialised in pianoforte. Sellé demonstrated at an early age the ability to teach music beginning whilst he was under tutelage. Potter trusted him enough to allow him to teach the other pupils. He was at the academy for about two years and then started a seventy-year career as a teacher. He was primarily a teacher of the piano and organ but was also a skilled violinist.

The option offense is a generic term that is used to describe a wide variety of offensive systems in American football. Option offenses are characterized as such because of the predominance of option running plays employed in them. Option offenses have traditionally relied heavily upon running plays, though modern option offenses now incorporate a large number of passing plays. Because they are run-based, option offenses are very effective in managing the game clock, giving the opposing team less time to score and keeping the option team's defense from tiring. However, this also means that when the option team is losing near the end of the game, and needs to score quickly, it is at a disadvantage. These schemes rely on timing, deception, and split-second decision-making under pressure, which, in turn, require flawless execution and discipline.
An option offense is any football scheme that relies on option running plays as its cornerstone. There are a variety of such schemes. Some of the most popular versions include:

The stock (also capital stock) of a corporation constitutes the equity stake of its owners. It represents the residual assets of the company that would be due to stockholders after discharge of all senior claims such as secured and unsecured debt. Stockholders' equity cannot be withdrawn from the company in a way that is intended to be detrimental to the company's creditors.
The stock of a corporation is partitioned into shares, the total of which are stated at the time of business formation. Additional shares may subsequently be authorized by the existing shareholders and issued by the company. In some jurisdictions, each share of stock has a certain declared par value, which is a nominal accounting value used to represent the equity on the balance sheet of the corporation. In other jurisdictions, however, shares of stock may be issued without associated par value.
Shares represent a fraction of ownership in a business. A business may declare different types (classes) of shares, each having distinctive ownership rules, privileges, or share values. Ownership of shares may be documented by issuance of a stock certificate. A stock certificate is a legal document that specifies the amount of shares owned by the shareholder, and other specifics of the shares, such as the par value, if any, or the class of the shares.
