Contributing greatly to Fullerton's musical heritage was the Fender musical instrument company (Fender Musical Instruments Corporation), whose products such as the Stratocaster (Fender Stratocaster) and Telecaster (Fender Telecaster) electric guitars, Precision Bass (Fender Precision Bass) bass guitar, and Twin Reverb guitar amplifier (instrument amplifier) revolutionized the music business and contributed greatly to the development of rock and roll. (A list of notable rock performers who did '''not''' use a Fender product at some point in their careers would be very short.) Leo Fender sold the company to CBS in 1964; production continued in the Fullerton plant until 1985, when the then-ruined company was sold to a group of private investors. (It was later reconstituted as Fender Musical Instrument Corporation, with its major production facilities in neighboring Corona (Corona, California) and across the US-Mexico border in Ensenada, Baja California, and its headquarters in Scottsdale (Scottsdale, Arizona), Arizona.) In 1980, Leo Fender and his original partner George Fullerton (George William Fullerton) (relation to the Fullerton founder of the same name unknown) reunited and started a new company, G&L (George and Leo) Guitars, which currently occupies the old Fender factory in Fullerton. country1 Mexico city2 Ensenada (Ensenada, Baja California), Mexico country2 Mexico Satellite campuses Apart from Ciudad Universitaria, UNAM has several campi in the Metropolitan Area of Mexico City (Greater Mexico City) (Acatlán, Aragón, Cuautitlán, Iztacala, and Zaragoza), as well as many others in several locations across Mexico (in Santiago de Querétaro, Morelia, Mérida (Mérida, Yucatán), Ensenada (Ensenada, Baja California), Cuernavaca and Leon (Leon, Guanajuato)), mainly aimed at research and graduate studies.

This expedition was more fruitful. Ensenada, Baja California was founded. San Diego Bay was explored and Catalina Island (Santa Catalina Island, California) was named. The explorers reached as far north as Monterey Bay, Alta California, which Vizcaíno named in honor of the viceroy. Subsequent plans to colonize Alta California foundered when Zúñiga's successor, Juan de Mendoza, 3rd Marquis of Montesclaros, turned out to be much less favorable. http: www.sandiegohistory.org journal 78winter plans.htm PLANS FOR THE OCCUPATION OF UPPER CALIFORNIA A NEW LOOK AT THE "DARK AGE" FROM 1602 TO 1769, The Journal of San Diego History SAN DIEGO HISTORICAL SOCIETY QUARTERLY, Winter 1978, Volume 24, Number 1

of the main bases for the great Chinese treasure ships that routinely traded in Southeast Asia and India and sometimes reached at least as far as Persia and Aden. When Vasco da Gama (en route to becoming the first European to reach India by sea) reached East Africa in 1498, he found Chinese trade goods such as blue & white pottery already in the market. The Chinese ships were far larger, longer range, and more advanced technically than European vessels of the period. http

Seattle

County as well. The bus service is generally easy to navigate especially from downtown, with multiple lines to most tourist attractions. There are two types of bus, the ''ordinary'' (green & yellow, or blue & yellow) and ''RapidRide'' (red & yellow). The latter has 7 lines providing frequent express services on the suburb's (outside downtown) major routes. You must board & pay (or if you have a transfer paper, show it to the driver) at the front. To ask for a stop, pull the cord alongside the windows downwards or on most buses, press the red button beside the back door, a red light on the bus stop display & a sound will activate. All stops are displayed on the board; stops near public facilities and malls, transit centers, and downtown are both displayed and announced by voice. All routes, with the exception of rush-hour only routes, operate from 5AM to 1:30AM, and runs from every 10 minutes up to every hour, depending on route & days of the week. The adult bus fare is '''$2.25''', but a rush hour fare is in effect on weekdays 6-9AM and 3-6PM for $2.50 within the city limits ($3.00 for rides from & outside the city limits). The youth (ages 6-18) & senior fare (ages 65 or older) is always $1.25 and $0.75, respectively. Up to four children under age 6 can ride free with a paying adult. If you pay by cash (exact fare only, please!), you'll get a paper transfer good for within a 2-hour period to ride ''other King County Metro buses'', but a few drivers are lenient enough to give you 2 1 2 or even 3! The only way to transfer for free & seamlessly between other transit agencies is with an '''ORCA card'''. To know your nearest stop and bus arrival times, you can download the ''One Bus Away'' app on both Android & iTunes. It is also used on display at selected downtown & most RapidRide bus stops. When traveling to destinations outside the downtown core, make sure to ask the drivers about green and white "EXPRESS" signs in their windows or the "VIA EXPRESS" on the road display if they are going to your destination. Some of these express routes are intended for regular commuters traveling between residential neighborhoods and downtown and make few or no stops between, but many may be useful for getting to destinations such as the University District, West Seattle, and Ballard. Special service is sometimes deployed for events with expected huge attendance numbers from downtown and a few transit centers, primarily to the Seattle Center, to UW for the ''Husky'' football team's game day, or to CenturyLink field for a Seahawks game. At downtown, most buses go southbound on 2nd Avenue and northbound on 4th Ave except RapidRide buses which operate on 3rd Avenue and high-capacity routes that use the Downtown Seattle Bus Tunnel. The "bus tunnel" opens from 5AM to 1AM every day and has five stations, from north to south, Convention Place, Westlake, University Street, Pioneer Square, and International District. The bus tunnel is useful for bus and light rail transfers but watch your belongings. By train thumb 300px The Seattle trains network map. The blue line is Central Link Light Rail. The red line is the Seattle Center Monorail. The green line is South Lake Union Streetcar (the left is one way towards Fairview & Campus Drive, the right is one way towards Westlake). Map not drawn to scale. (File:Seattle train map.png) If you use an ORCA card, you can interchangeably use all the trains & bus system from different agencies. Train services are currently limited to downtown, South Lake Union and South Seattle. At all other districts, the bus is the only public transportation mode to get there. *'''Link Light Rail''' operates between Westlake Station (underground) and Sea-Tac Airport, via South Seattle (Seattle South) and Tukwila. Fares are $2.00—$2.75 depending on how far you travel; ticket machines are at all stations, and the tickets must be retained for the duration of your trip. If you use an ORCA card, you must tap at your origin & destination station. *The '''South Lake Union Streetcar''' runs between Westlake & Olive Way and South Lake Union (Seattle Queen Anne-South Lake Union). Also known as the '''SLUT''' for its former name, rides are every 15 minutes for $2.50 per adult or $1.25 per child. You must purchase the ticket at one of the 11 stops before riding the train. You can also use the bus transfer paper as proof of payment. *The '''Seattle Center Monorail''', a 1962 World's Fair legacy that takes you non-stop between Westlake Center (5th Ave & Pine Street) and the Seattle Center in just 2 minutes! Tickets are $2.25 per adult, $1.25 children ages 4-12 & seniors one way. You can only pay by cash; ORCA card is ''not'' valid! thumb King County Water Taxi and Downtown (File:King County Water Taxi Downtown Seattle.jpg) If you need any help, go to the Customer Stop at Westlake Station in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel, or ask a local. Seattleites are always eager to help and may offer help, even if they see you were looking confusingly at a tourist map! By ferry The county government provides water taxi between Pier 50 (beside Pier 52 Colman Dock) at downtown and Seacrest Park at West Seattle in 15 minutes, an optimum connection for Alki. Fares are $4.75 one way, $4.00 with an ORCA card. Rides are every 30 minutes on weekdays & every hour on weekends, schedules vary from season to season. By car Unlike some other American cities, visitors should not be intimidated by the thought of navigating Seattle by car. While rush-hour traffic can be quite frustrating (especially on the freeways), the city's streets and roadways, especially outside the downtown area, are otherwise quite hospitable, with the '''notable exception of Pike Place Market'''. On weekends, you can often rent cars at locations throughout the city for well under $20 day. Parking fares are $1 to $2.50 per hour, but be mindful of where you park & its duration because parking laws are enforced and the fines can be hefty! A parking ticket can be in excess of $35 for going overtime in a 2-hour zone. Most establishments outside downtown provides free parking if they have their own parking area. When parking on a hill, remember to '''always''' apply the parking brake and turn your wheels so that the car will roll into the sidewalk instead of the street if the brakes give out (i.e., when facing uphill, turn toward the street; when facing downhill, turn toward the curb). Failure to park properly doesn't just run the risk of having your car roll downhill, but it is also against the law and you may be ticketed Note that there are '''one way restrictions''' on roads downtown. From Denny Way to Jackson Street, 2nd and 5th Avenue (south of Olive Way) are one-way southward; 4th Avenue is one-way northward. Chery, Marion, Spring, University, Pike, Virginia, Blanchard, Battery, Vine Streets & Olive Way are one way eastward (away from the shore); Columbia, Madison, Seneca, Union, Pine, Lenora, Bell, Wall, Clay Streets are one-way westward (towards the shore). No restrictions on Broad, Cedar, Jefferson, and James Street. By taxi You can call or hail a taxi from any street in Seattle or most hotels will call them for you. However, most of their services are unfriendly & expensive, especially if you are only hovering around the downtown area. Even taxi drivers may '''refuse to take you''' if your destination is less than 15 blocks away. The fares are: *$2.50 for the first 1 9 mile *$0.30 for each additional 1 9 mile (a total of $2.70 mile) *$0.50 for every minute of waiting time *$0.50 for each additional passenger after two. If you are heading to SeaTac airport from the downtown area, a flat fare of $40 is applied. The rudeness of a few taxi drivers have forced people to avoid taking them and look for '''car-sharing''' alternatives (see below). But should you be in dire need of a taxi, call one of these companies: *
