Herman Melville Born in New York City, the son of New England merchant. He worked at odd jobs (clerk, garmhand, teacher) before sailing to the South Seas on the whaler Acushnet. He deserted his ship, lived among cannibals, mutinied on an Australian boat, then spent two years on an American boat returning to the U.S. He successfully romanticized these adventures, publishing seven novels in six years, including Moby Dick (1851), one of the masterworks of American fiction. His popularity waned, and by the time he died he was virtually forgotten. Billy Budd was his last great novel. As his writing declined, Melville sailed again, around Cape Horn to San Francisco on a clipper ship commanded by his brother.

The 2014 BBC Apprentice winner Mark Wright (an Australian) had this to say about London: "London particularly is a land of opportunity for young people to start businesses. You can start a business here from your kitchen bench and turn over a million quid - what other place in the world can you do that?" A survey of more than 200,000 people from 189 countries carried out by management consultancy firm The Boston Consulting Group (with the UK's totaljobs.com and The Network, a global alliance of more than 50 recruitment websites) found London to be the most desirable place to work in the world. One in six people said they wanted to work in London, while Britain as a whole came out as the world's second favourite place to work, just behind the US. London welcomes talented people from around the world with open arms. There are many great opportunities available in the UK (Britain) for the skilled foreigner. Don't be left behind.
