S. state. California is bordered by Oregon to the north and Arizona to the east, the Mexican state of Baja California to the south; the state's diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west to the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the east, from the redwood–Douglas fir forests in the northwest to the Mojave Desert in the southeast. The Central Valley, a major agricultural area, dominates the state's center. Although California is well-known for its warm Mediterranean climate, the large size of the state results in climates that vary from moist temperate rainforest in the north to arid desert in the interior, as well as snowy alpine in the mountains. Over time and wildfires have become more pervasive features. What is now California was first settled by various Native Californian tribes before being explored by a number of European expeditions during the 16th and 17th centuries; the Spanish Empire claimed it as part of Alta California in their New Spain colony. The area became a part of Mexico in 1821 following its successful war for independence but was ceded to the United States in 1848 after the Mexican–American War.
The western portion of Alta California was organized and admitted as the 31st state on September 9, 1850. The California Gold Rush starting in 1848 led to dramatic social and demographic changes, with large-scale emigration from the east and abroad with an accompanying economic boom; the word California referred to the Baja California Peninsula of Mexico. The name derived from the mythical island California in the fictional story of Queen Calafia, as recorded in a 1510 work The Adventures of Esplandián by Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo; this work was the fifth in a popular Spanish chivalric romance series that began with Amadis de Gaula. Queen Calafia's kingdom was said to be a remote land rich in gold and pearls, inhabited by beautiful black women who wore gold armor and lived like Amazons, as well as griffins and other strange beasts. In the fictional paradise, the ruler Queen Calafia fought alongside Muslims and her name may have been chosen to echo the title of a Muslim leader, the Caliph. It's possible.
Know ye that at the right hand of the Indies there is an island called California close to that part of the Terrestrial Paradise, inhabited by black women without a single man among them, they lived in the manner of Amazons. They were robust of body with great virtue; the island itself is one of the wildest in the world on account of the craggy rocks. Shortened forms of the state's name include CA, Cal. Calif. and US-CA. Settled by successive waves of arrivals during the last 10,000 years, California was one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse areas in pre-Columbian North America. Various estimates of the native population range from 100,000 to 300,000; the Indigenous peoples of California included more than 70 distinct groups of Native Americans, ranging from large, settled populations living on the coast to groups in the interior. California groups were diverse in their political organization with bands, villages, on the resource-rich coasts, large chiefdoms, such as the Chumash and Salinan.

Since 1999, she has voiced Meg Griffin on the animated series Family Guy. Kunis' breakout film role came in 2008, playing Rachel in the romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, she gained further critical acclaim and accolades for her performance in the psychological thriller Black Swan, for which she received the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress, nominations for the SAG Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her other major films include the neo-noir action film Max Payne, the post-apocalyptic action film The Book of Eli, the romantic comedy film Friends with Benefits, the comedy film Ted, the fantasy film Oz the Great and Powerful as the Wicked Witch of the West, the comedy film Bad Moms.
Milena Markovna Kunis was born on August 1983 in Chernivtsi, Ukrainian SSR in the Soviet Union. Her mother, Elvira, is a physics teacher who runs a pharmacy, her father, Mark Kunis, is a mechanical engineer who works as a cab driver. Kunis has an elder brother named Michael, her mother tongue and the common language within her family is Russian. She stated in 2011 that her parents had "amazing jobs", that she "was lucky" and the family was "not poor". In 1991, when she was seven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, with $250. "That was all. My parents had given up good degrees, which were not transferable. We arrived in New York on a Wednesday and by Friday morning my brother and I were at school in LA."Kunis comes from a Jewish family and has cited antisemitism in the former Soviet Union as one of several reasons for her family's move to the United States. She has stated that her parents "raised Jewish as much as they could", although religion was suppressed in the Soviet Union. On her second day in Los Angeles, Kunis was enrolled at Rosewood Elementary School, not knowing a word of English.
She recalled: "I blocked out second grade completely. I have no recollection of it. I always talk to my grandma about it, it was. I didn't understand the culture. I didn't understand the people. I didn't understand the language. My first sentence of my essay to get into college was like,'Imagine being blind and deaf at age seven.' And that's kind of what it felt like moving to the States."In Los Angeles, she attended Hubert Howe Bancroft Middle School. She used an on-set tutor for most of her high school years while filming That'70s Show, she attended Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies, but when that school proved to be insufficiently flexible about her acting commitments, she transferred to Fairfax High School, from which she graduated in 2001. She attended UCLA and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. At age nine, Kunis was enrolled by her father in acting classes after school at the Beverly Hills Studios, where she met Susan Curtis, who would become her manager. On her first audition she landed the role for a Barbie commercial.
Shortly after, she did a commercial for the Lisa Frank product line. Her first television roles took place in 1994, first appearing on Days of Our Lives, a few months doing her first of two appearances on Baywatch, she had a minor role on 7th Heaven and supporting roles in Santa with Muscles, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, the Angelina Jolie film Gia, as the young Gia Carangi. At the age of 10, Kunis auditioned for but failed to get the role of a Russian Jewish girl who moves to America in the film Make a Wish, Molly. Instead, she was cast in the secondary role of a Mexican girl. In 1998, Kunis was cast as Jackie Burkhart in the Fox sitcom That'70s Show. All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old. Though they figured it out, the producers still thought Kunis was the best fit for the role. That'70s Show ran for eight seasons, she won two consecutive Young Star Awards as Best Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series in 1999 and 2000 for her performances. In 1999, Kunis replaced Lacey Chabert in the role of Meg Griffin on the animated sitcom Family Guy, created by Seth MacFarlane for Fox.
Kunis won the role after auditions and a slight rewrite of the character, in part due to her performance on That'70s Show. When Kunis auditioned for the role, she was called back by MacFarlane, who instructed her to speak slower, he told her to come back another time and enunciate more. Once she claimed that she had it under control, MacFarlane hired her. MacFarlane added: "What Mila Kunis brought to it was in a lot of ways, I thought more right for the character. I say that Lacey did a phenomenal job, but there was something about Mila – something natural about Mila, she was 15 when she started, so you were listening to a 15-year-old. Oftentimes with animation they'll have adult actors doing the voices of teenagers and they always sound like Saturday morning voices, they sound oftentimes forced. She had a natural quality to Meg that made what we did with that character kind of work." Kunis was nominated for an Annie Award in the category of Voice Acting in an Animated Televisi

Shortly after he moved to Los Angeles for his role and Geeks was cancelled after one season due to low viewership. Rogen got a part on sitcom Undeclared, which hired him as a writer. After landing his job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, Apatow guided him toward a film career. Rogen made his first movie appearance in Donnie Darko with a minor role in 2001. Rogen was cast in a supporting role and credited as a co-producer in Apatow's directorial debut, The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Universal Pictures subsequently cast him as the lead in Apatow's films Knocked Funny People. Rogen co-starred as Steve Wozniak in Universal's Steve Jobs biopic in 2015.

Seth Aaron Rogen was born on April 1982 in Vancouver, British Columbia, to a Jewish family, his mother, Sandy, is a social worker, his father, Mark Rogen, worked for non-profit organizations and as an assistant director of the Workmen's Circle Jewish fraternal organization. Since Rogen's father is American, he has American citizenship by birth, though the actor has stated "I associate with being Canadian much more than being American" because he grew up in Canada, he has described his parents, who met on kibbutz Beit Alfa in Israel, as "radical Jewish socialists."
Rogen has an older sister named Danya, attended Vancouver Talmud Torah Elementary School and Point Grey Secondary School, incorporating many of his classmates into his writing. He was known for the stand-up comedy he performed at Camp Miriam, a Habonim Dror camp. Rogen was raised Jewish; as a child, Rogen did not want to pursue any career other than comedy, stating "As soon as I realized you could be funny as a job, the job I wanted". He got his start in show business at age 12 after enrolling in a comedy workshop taught by Mark Pooley, his early comedy routines involved jokes about his bar mitzvah, his grandparents, his camp counsellors. During his teenage years, he would perform stand-up comedy routines at places like bar mitzvahs and small parties shifting to bars. A mohel paid him to write jokes. At the age of 13, he co-wrote a rough draft of Superbad with childhood friend Evan Goldberg, whom he had met at bar mitzvah classes. Based on their teenage experiences and Goldberg spent the rest of their time in high school polishing the script.
They worried that American Pie had beaten them to the idea for the movie, but they decided that the film "managed to avoid all honest interaction between characters..., what we're going for."His mother was supportive of his comic endeavours and would drive him to stand-up gigs at the comedy club Yuk Yuk's. With his deadpan humour, he placed second in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest at 16 years old; when Rogen was 16, his father lost his job and his mother quit hers, forcing them to put their house up for sale and relocate to a smaller apartment. Around this time, he landed a role on Judd Apatow's television show Freaks and Geeks after attending a local casting call. Rogen dropped out of high school, began working for Apatow, relocated with his family to Los Angeles. Rogen paid the bills and had become the main wage earner at just 16.

Revolving around a group of teenagers' lives and Geeks first aired in 1999.
Although well-reviewed, the show was NBC's lowest-viewed program and was cancelled after one season due to poor ratings. Impressed with Rogen's improvisational skills, Apatow chose him as the lead in another of his shows, Undeclared. Rogen was set to play a popular but nerdy college freshman, but the network did not think he was leading male material. Apatow opted not to go along with the show. Rogen served as a staff writer to the short-lived production. Following the show's cancellation in 2002, Rogen did not get many auditions, not upsetting to him as he always thought he would achieve better success as a writer, he would soon be a part of Apatow's "frat pack", a close-knit group that includes Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. Of the awkwardness of a grown man spending so much time with a teenaged Rogen, Apatow said: "I'm such a comedy fan that though he's 16, I know I'm hanging out with one of the guys who's going to be one of the great comics." Around this time, Apatow would come up with odd requests for Rogen and Goldberg, such as turn an idea of his into a movie in 10 days and come up with 100 one-page ideas for films.
Regarding Apatow's professional effect on Rogen, the actor said in 2009, "Obviously, I can't stress how important Judd's been to my career". Rogen had roles in Donnie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. A big career point for him was becoming a staff writer for Sacha Baron Cohen's last season of Da Ali
