protected status of national parks. But during the 1890s there was more public support for creating national forests than national parks. During that decade, Muir and his supporters were only able to protect one national forest as a national park. When the Pacific Forest Reserve was created in 1893, Muir quickly persuaded the newly formed Sierra Club to support a movement to protect Rainier as a national park. Other groups soon joined, such as the National Geographic Society

Among the highlights are the Rem Koolhaas OMA designed '''Central Library''', a unique, contemporary building with an enormous glass-fronted atrium; the '''Experience Music Project''' designed to resemble Jimi Hendrix's smashed guitar done in a manner only Frank Gehry could conceive; the '''Smith Tower''', an Art Deco skyscraper which has an observation deck and is Seattle's oldest skyscraper; the '''Columbia Center''', the tallest building in the Pacific Northwest and one with its own observation deck; the '''Seattle City Hall''', designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Bassetti Architects, with its roof garden, designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd. and Swift & Company; and the new '''Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Campus''', designed by NBBJ, with its 12 acre garden also designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd. thumb right 300px Seattle's Seattle Downtown Downtown (Image:Downtown Seattle 2.JPG) from the Space Needle Of course, the most popular view in Seattle remains the one from the revolving top of the '''Space Needle''' at the Seattle Center (Seattle Queen Anne-South Lake Union#See). And given the retro-futurism look of the Space Needle, a fitting way to get there is via the '''Monorail''', which connects the Seattle Center to Downtown. Parks and outdoors thumb 300px South Lake Union and downtown Seattle as seen from South Lake Union park (File:South Lake Union cityscape.JPG) Seattle is peppered with parks, from small urban squares to large forested areas, most have breathtaking views of Seattle and the Puget Sound. Seattle's park system was designed by the Olmsted Brothers firm in Seattle's early days, park planners across the country celebrate Seattle's park system as one of the best designed and best preserved in the United States. While many other American cities have only one or two Olmsted-designed parks, Seattle has an extensive multi-park plan linked by boulevards. It is this legacy that makes Seattle one of the most livable spots in the country. '''Seattle Center''', where Space Needle is hoisted at, is actually a park itself and has multiple places of interest inside, such as the ''Pacific Science Center'' and the ''Chihuly Garden & Glass''. ''Kobe Bell'' and the mural beside it, and ''International Fountain'' are small but should not be missed either. Up on Queen Anne Hill is '''Kerry Park''', where you will be spellbound by seeing the most photographed view of Seattle. To the west is '''Discovery Park''' with trails less traveled traversing hills, offering a view of the unspoiled land and water, wildlife, and a lighthouse. Overlooking Lake Union is '''Gasworks Park'''. Known as a former site of a coal gasification plant, it is no longer active for the past 60 years, replaced by lush green hills filled with spectators of the 4th of July fireworks and boating at the lake. For a day at the beach, head over to '''Golden Gardens Park''' for a view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, or to '''Alki Beach''' at West Seattle for an additional view of downtown Seattle. Both also offer bonfire sites. Joggers can spend their time at '''Green Lake Park''' or '''Magnuson Park''' for a serene view of water by the running tracks. A place to see trees from around the world are at the '''Washington Park Arboretum''' on the east. Enter the '''Japanese Garden''' (closes in winter) for $6 to enjoy a traditional Japanese festival, if available, or look at the cool plants. For a more laid back and Zen atmosphere, the '''Kubota Garden''' at Rainier Beach in south Seattle has streams & falls, ponds, rock outcroppings, and exceptionally rich and mature collection of plants. If you are into animals, head to the '''Woodland Park Zoo''' with realistic uncaged habitats of them. Scenic flight Yes, Seattle is scenic enough to be seen from the air. With the blue waters & white mountains in its immediate vicinity, it's a one of a kind experience you won't get at other cities in the US. *

It represented a departure from the prior Wings template in that each of the five members of the band (including English) sang lead on at least one song. However, the two U.S. No. 1 singles, "Silly Love Songs" and "Let 'em In", were both sung by Paul. Four of the album tracks were played in the 1976 portion of the tour, which also included five Beatles songs. One of the Seattle concerts from the American leg of the 1975–76 world tour was filmed and later released as the concert feature ''Rockshow'' (1980). The tour's American leg, which also included Madison Square Garden in New York City and Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, spawned a triple live album, ''Wings over America'' (1976), which became the fifth consecutive Wings album to reach No. 1 in the U.S. From this album came a single release of the live version of "Maybe I'm Amazed" from the ''McCartney (McCartney (album))'' album. The single's flipside was "Soily", a previously unreleased rocker that was often used as a closer for the concerts. ***The A.M. name goes back to ''AM America'', ABC's original short-lived morning show in 1975 before the adaptation of ABC affiliate WEWS in Cleveland, Ohio's program ''Morning Exchange'' into the future national format for ''Good Morning America'' ** '' Station Calls Branding Morning News'' — Tribune Broadcasting's local, morning-news-show format is usually seen on Tribune's CW (The CW Television Network) and Fox (Fox Network) affiliates, such as WPIX in New York City, New York; WGN (WGN-TV) in Chicago, Illinois; KTLA in Los Angeles, California; KCPQ in Seattle, Washington (Washington (U.S. state)); and WXIN (WXIN (TV)) in Indianapolis, Indiana; though this format has also been used on non-Tribune owned Fox and CW stations (e.g.; ''Fox 25 Morning News'' on KOKH in Oklahoma City) under a more generic title form ** '' Station

Seattle

'''Seattle''' (

The Seattle area had previously been inhabited by Native Americans (Native Americans in the United States) for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers. The settlement was moved to its current site and named "Seattle" in 1852, after Chief Si'ahl (Chief Seattle) of the local Duwamish (Duwamish tribe) and Suquamish (Suquamish tribe) tribes.

Logging was Seattle's first major industry, but by the late 19th century the city had become a commercial and shipbuilding center as a gateway to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush. By 1910, Seattle was one of the 25 largest cities in the country. However, the Great Depression severely damaged the city's economy. Growth returned during and after World War II, due partially to the local Boeing company, which established Seattle as a center for aircraft manufacturing. The city developed as a technology center in the 1980s, with companies like Amazon.com, Microsoft and T-Mobile US based in the area. The stream of new software, biotechnology, and Internet companies led to an economic revival, which increased the city's population by almost 50,000 between 1990 and 2000. Since then, Seattle has become a hub for green industry and a model for sustainable development.

Seattle has a noteworthy musical history. From 1918 to 1951, there were nearly two dozen jazz nightclubs along Jackson Street, from the current Chinatown International District, to the Central District. The jazz scene developed the early careers of Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Ernestine Anderson and others. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock musician Jimi Hendrix and the alternative rock style grunge.
