White House

the last nuclear scare of the Cold War. At sea, the powerful Royal Navy blockaded much of the coastline, conducting frequent raids. The most famous episode was a series of British raids on the shores of Chesapeake Bay, including an attack on Washington that resulted in the British burning of the White House, the Capitol (United States Capitol), the Navy Yard (Washington Navy Yard), and other public buildings, in the "Burning of Washington" in 1814. * October 12 – The first Columbus Day celebration in the USA (United States) is held in New York, 300 years after his arrival in the New World. * October 13 – Foundation of Washington, DC: The cornerstone of the United States Executive Mansion, known as the White House after 1818, is laid. * October 29 – Mount Hood (Oregon) is named after the British naval officer Samuel Hood (Samuel Hood, 1st Viscount Hood) by Lt. William E.

This move, and the addition of then-White House correspondent Dan Rather to the reporting team, made the program into a strong ratings hit and, eventually, a general cultural phenomenon. This was no less than a stunning reversal of the previously poor ratings performances of documentary programs on network television, as mentioned above. By 1976, ''60 Minutes'' became the top-rated show on Sunday nights in the U.S. By 1979, it had achieved the number-one Nielsen rating (Nielsen ratings) for all television programs, unheard of before for a news broadcast in prime time. This success translated into great profits for CBS; advertising rates went from $17,000 per thirty seconds in 1975 to $175,000 in 1982. Madsen 17 * Robert R.

Keen has to find and deactivate each of the cannons to save Earth. Unlike the first game which had a happy and friendly atmosphere, almost everything in this game is hostile towards Keen, from the floating machine gun robots to the electrified floors. The engine has more features than the first episode, such as light switches and moving platforms. :3. "Keen Must Die!" However, Heads of governments' residences are usually far less grand than those (often called palace) of a Head of state (even a merely ceremonial one), unless they combine both roles, as for example: * The White House (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue) in Washington, D.C. — President of the United States of America In an internal e-mail apparently sent August 18, 2008 to NASA managers and leaked to the press, NASA Administrator Michael Griffin (Michael D.
