His suspicions are confirmed when she opens a safe and destroys what she believes to be Keith's tape incriminating Carl Webb, where the tape is a decoy placed by David Palmer.

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.

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.

White House

The '''White House''' is the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States, located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (Northwest, Washington, D.C.) in Washington, D.C. It has been the residence of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800.

The house was designed by Irish-born James Hoban

In 1814, during the War of 1812, the mansion was set ablaze by the British Army in the Burning of Washington, destroying the interior and charring much of the exterior. Reconstruction began almost immediately, and President James Monroe moved into the partially reconstructed Executive Residence in October 1817. Construction continued with the addition of the South Portico in 1824 and the North in 1829.

Because of crowding within the executive mansion itself, President Theodore Roosevelt had all work offices relocated to the newly constructed West Wing in 1901. Eight years later, President William Howard Taft expanded the West Wing and created the first Oval Office which was eventually moved as the section was expanded. The third-floor attic was converted to living quarters in 1927 by augmenting the existing hip roof with long shed dormers. A newly constructed East Wing was used as a reception area for social events; Jefferson's colonnades connected the new wings.

East Wing alterations were completed in 1946, creating additional office space. By 1948, the house's load-bearing exterior walls and internal wood beams were found to be close to failure. Under Harry S. Truman, the interior rooms were completely dismantled and a new internal load-bearing steel frame constructed inside the walls. Once this work was completed, the interior rooms were rebuilt.

Today, the White House Complex includes the Executive Residence, West Wing, East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building—the former State Department, which now houses offices for the President's staff and the Vice President—and Blair House, a guest residence.

The Executive Residence is made up of six stories—the Ground Floor, State Floor, Second Floor, and Third Floor, as well as a two-story basement (White House basement). The term ''White House'' is often used as a metonym (Metonymy) for the Executive Office of the President of the United States and for the president's administration and advisers in general, as in "''The White House has decided that...."''. The property is a National Heritage Site (National Heritage Site (United States)) owned by the National Park Service and is part of the President's Park. In 2007, it was ranked second on the American Institute of Architects list of "America's Favorite Architecture".
