Apart from the New York Inquirer , Kane publishes similar Inquirer newspapers in Chicago , Detroit , Philadelphia , San Francisco , and other major American cities. The "News on the March" newsreel at the beginning of the film also claims that Kane controls two newspaper syndicates and a radio network ; it also mentions that Kane has other business interests in real estate , logging , shipping , and food retailing . However, Kane's empire largely collapses at the onset of the Great Depression, and he is forced to sell his remaining holdings to Thatcher. Kane has enough wealth to build Chicago's opera house , as well as his unfinished mansion, Xanadu .
Welles never confirmed a principal source for the character of Charles Foster Kane . Houseman wrote that Kane is a synthesis of different personalities, with Hearst's life used as the main source. Some events and details were invented,  :444 and Houseman wrote that he and Mankiewicz also "grafted anecdotes from other giants of journalism, including Pulitzer , Northcliffe and Mank's first boss, Herbert Bayard Swope ."  :444 Welles said, "Mr. Hearst was quite a bit like Kane, although Kane isn't really founded on Hearst in particular, many people sat for it so to speak".  :78 He specifically acknowledged that aspects of Kane were drawn from the lives of two business tycoons familiar from his youth in Chicago— Samuel Insull and Harold Fowler McCormick .

The primary reason that people show their dogs is quite simple; because they enjoy it and because their dogs enjoy it. It is a chance for dogs and their owners to spend time together and not just in the show ring; they will spend a lot of time together attending training classes before they even enter the show. This helps to cement this bond, as well as helping the people to fulfill their role as responsible dog owners.
And although nobody can ask dogs whether they enjoy it, it is easy to see if you attend a show. Temperament and deportment are important in the show ring; and a dog which looks unhappy or ill at ease will not move well or carry itself well and so will not be successful. That is why you can visit dog shows and see the dogs enjoying themselves, taking obvious interest and enjoyment in the proceedings, happy in the environment and taking pleasure in strutting their stuff!
But beyond the pleasure that is gained on an individual level by dogs and their owners, the show ring can also help to improve the health of our breeds today. Professor Patrick Bateson, in his Independent Review into Dog Breeding which was published in January 2010, recognised that dog shows could be a positive lever for change; as it is only through the show ring that we are able to monitor how our breeds are developing. Moreover, it is a place where healthy dogs go home with prizes and therefore helps to encourage the breeding of healthy dogs.
It is also the people who show their dogs who do the most outside of the show ring to help improve the health of dogs. Showing is an expensive hobby with very little in the way of financial reward, so people who pursue it do so because they love their dogs, care about the breed, and they use the best and the healthiest dogs in their breeding programmes. It is the only way to progress and to success
Many breeds have their own health screening schemes which require breeding stock to be screened for any hereditary defects which might occur in the breed - and they do occur in dogs just as they occur in all forms of livestock - and breeders can exchange ideas on health issues, the best bloodlines etc. Having a health scheme in place for a breed is a sign, paradoxically, not of an unhealthy breed but of a breed where breeders are working for the health of the breed.
The breeds we have today have a rich heritage but a legacy which carries responsibility for today's breeders and today's Kennel Club. The breed standards are one aspect of that responsibility and the Kennel Club will always keep the health and welfare of every breed as its primary concern.
Burns has numerous physical ailments and health problems, or more accurately, he has every physical ailment and health problem, including several discovered in him. He is often to the point where he seems to straddle the line between life and death. The Mayo Clinic diagnosed Burns with "Three Stooges Syndrome", where a delicate state of homeostasis is created by the presence in his body of every disease known to man cancel each other out. Mr. Burns took this as being invincible, although the doctor who told him this implied that the slightest breeze could kill him.
