Gerald Maxwell Rivera     born May 23, , known mononymously as Maxwell , is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Along with fellow musicians D'Angelo and Erykah Badu , Maxwell has been credited with helping to shape what has been termed the " neo soul " movement that rose to prominence during the late s. His mother grew up in a devout Baptist household in Haiti. After receiving a low-cost Casio keyboard from a friend, the Brooklyn, New York-native began composing music at age Band and Rose Royce , Maxwell began to teach himself to play a variety of instruments. Maxwell was able to gain access to a track recording studio and started to record songs for a demo tape , which he circulated among his friends. He adopted his middle name as a moniker out of respect for his family's privacy. Initially, the album was slow to obtain commercial interest. The album spawned four singles.

Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism have been called the " second great unification in physics "  after the first one realised by Isaac Newton. With the publication of " A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field " in , Maxwell demonstrated that electric and magnetic fields travel through space as waves moving at the speed of light. Maxwell is also regarded as a founder of the modern field of electrical engineering. He helped develop the Maxwell—Boltzmann distribution , a statistical means of describing aspects of the kinetic theory of gases. He is also known for presenting the first durable colour photograph in and for his foundational work on analysing the rigidity of rod-and-joint frameworks trusses like those in many bridges. His discoveries helped usher in the era of modern physics, laying the foundation for such fields as special relativity and quantum mechanics. Many physicists regard Maxwell as the 19th-century scientist having the greatest influence on 20th-century physics. His contributions to the science are considered by many to be of the same magnitude as those of Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein.
CNN Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to deny Ghislaine Maxwell's request to be told the identities of the women who allege the former British socialite and girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein recruited, groomed and ultimately sexually abused them as young girls.

Prosecutors on Thursday disputed claims by lawyers for a British socialite that they are too slowly releasing evidence and improperly withholding the names of women who were abused by financier Jeffrey Epstein while they were children. District Judge Alison J. Maxwell, 58, has pleaded not guilty to charges that she recruited three girls, including one who was 14, and joined Epstein in the abuse in the s. Prosecutors say they are protecting the identities of sexual assault victims and are under no legal obligation to immediately identify them. The government said it has already given defence lawyers over , pages of evidence, including search warrant applications and subpoena returns, even though the deadline to turn over the material was still a week away. And they suggested defence lawyers could figure out the identities of the three accusers since the indictment lists relevant time periods and events and references Maxwell's conversations and interactions with victims, along with identifying where they occurred. Yet, prosecutors noted, Maxwell's lawyers also said publicly that they want to modify their secrecy agreement to use materials from the criminal case in the civil case.
