Burbank is a city in Los Angeles County in the Los Angeles metropolitan area of Southern California, United States, 12 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. The population at the 2010 census was 103,340. Billed as the "Media Capital of the World" and only a few miles northeast of Hollywood, numerous media and entertainment companies are headquartered or have significant production facilities in Burbank, including Warner Bros. Entertainment, The Walt Disney Company, Nickelodeon Animation Studios, The Burbank Studios, Cartoon Network Studios with the West Coast branch of Cartoon Network, Insomniac Games; the Hollywood Burbank Airport was the location of Lockheed's Skunk Works, which produced some of the most secret and technologically advanced airplanes, including the U-2 spy planes that uncovered the Soviet Union missile components in Cuba in October 1962. Burbank consists of two distinct areas: a downtown/foothill section, in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains, the flatland section; the city was referred to as "Beautiful Downtown Burbank" on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
The city was named after David Burbank, a New Hampshire–born dentist and entrepreneur who established a sheep ranch there in 1867. The city of Burbank occupies land, part of two Spanish and Mexican-era colonial land grants, the 36,400-acre Rancho San Rafael, granted to Jose Maria Verdugo by the Spanish Bourbon government in 1784, the 4,063-acre Rancho Providencia created in 1821; this area was the scene of a military skirmish which resulted in the unseating of the Spanish Governor of California, his replacement by the Mexican leader Pio Pico. Remnants of the military battle were found many years in the vicinity of Warner Bros. Studio when residents dug up cannonballs. Dr. David Burbank purchased over 4,600 acres of the former Verdugo holding and another 4,600 acres of the Rancho Providencia in 1867 and built a ranch house and began to raise sheep and grow wheat on the ranch. By 1876, the San Fernando Valley became the largest wheat-raising area in Los Angeles County, but the droughts of the 1860s and 1870s underlined the need for steady water supplies.
A professionally trained dentist, Burbank began his career in Maine. He joined the great migration westward in the early 1850s and, by 1853 was living in San Francisco. At the time the American Civil War broke out he was again well established in his profession as a dentist in Pueblo de Los Angeles. In 1867, he purchased Rancho La Providencia from David W. Alexander and Francis Mellus, he purchased the western portion of the Rancho San Rafael from Jonathan R. Scott. Burbank's property reached nearly 9,200 acres at a cost of $9,000. Burbank would not acquire full titles to both properties until after a court decision known as the "Great Partition" was made in 1871 dissolving the Rancho San Rafael, he became known as one of the largest and most successful sheep raisers in southern California, as a result, he closed his dentistry practice and invested in real estate in Los Angeles. Burbank later owned the Burbank Theatre, which opened on November 27, 1893, at a cost of $150,000. Though the theater was intended to be an opera house, instead it staged plays and became known nationally.
The theatre featured famous actors of the time including Fay Bainter and Marjorie Rambeau, until it had deteriorated into a burlesque house. When the area that became Burbank was settled in the 1870s and 1880s, the streets were aligned along what is now Olive Avenue, the road to the Cahuenga Pass and downtown Los Angeles; these were the roads the Native Americans traveled and the early settlers took their produce down to Los Angeles to sell and to buy supplies along these routes. At the time, the primary long-distance transportation methods available to San Fernando Valley residents were stagecoach and train. Stagecoaching between Los Angeles and San Francisco through the Valley began in 1858; the Southern Pacific Railroad arrived in the Valley in 1876, completing the route connecting San Francisco and Los Angeles. A shrewd businessman, foreseeing the value of rail transport, Burbank sold Southern Pacific Railroad a right-of-way through the property for one dollar; the first train passed through Burbank on April 5, 1874.
A boom created by a rate war between the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific brought people streaming into California shortly thereafter, a group of speculators purchased much of Burbank's land holdings in 1886 for $250,000. One account suggests Burbank may have sold his property because of a severe drought that year, which caused a shortage of water and grass for his livestock. 1,000 of his sheep died due to the drought conditions. The group of speculators who bought the acreage formed the Providencia Land and Development Company and began developing the land, calling the new town Burbank after its founder, began offering farm lots on May 1, 1887; the townsite had Burbank Boulevard/Walnut Avenue as the northern boundary, Grandview Avenue as the southern boundary, the edge of the Verdugo Mountains as the eastern boundary and Clybourn Avenue was the western border. The establishment of a water system in 1887 allowed farmers to irrigate their orchards and provided a stronger base for agricultural development.
The original plot of the new townsite of Burbank extended from what is now Burbank Boulevard on the north, to Grandview Avenue in Glendale, California on the south, from the top of the Verdugo Hills on the east to what is now known as Clybourn Avenue on the west. At the same time, the arrival of the railroad provided immediate access for the farmers to bring crops to market. Packing houses and warehouses were built alo
Burbank is a large, greenbelt suburb in south-east Brisbane, Australia. Mount Petrie lies just to the north of the suburb. Burbank has a number of small intermittent creeks winding between cleared and uncleared rolling hills. At the 2016 Australian Census, the suburb recorded a population of 1,050; the area was known as Upper Tingalpa. It has been claimed the suburb was named after Alfred Harry Burbank, a surveyor and farmer, a resident in the area from 1890 to 1908, or that it was named after Frank Burbank, a local horse dealer; the main road across in the area is the Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road. There are a couple of working and hobby farms. There are at least two turf farms in the area. Burbank has a number of churches and temples and there is a Jewish school; the closest public primary school is Mount Petrie State School in Mackenzie. There are no shops in the suburb and public transport is limited; the entirely residential outer suburb is dominated by large acreage blocks, many with extensive gardens and prestige housing built on them.
A dam built in the late 1960s has shaped the modern development of this area. Called the Leslie Harrison Dam, it forms the Tingalpa Reservoir on Tingalpa Creek; the dam once provided water for residents of Redland City but has been connected to the regional water supply network. Because of water quality concerns the population density has been kept low within the immediate catchment area. Burbank has not been subdivided into small residential blocks of land to ensure the population remains low. In figures published in early 2009 from the Australian Property Investor magazine, Burbank had the third highest median house price in Australia, at A$1.1 million. Recent census data shows that Burbank has the most three-car households in Brisbane, at a rate of 40%. According to RP Data figures, residents of Burbank remain living in the suburb for an average of 13 years, the fourth longest in Brisbane, behind nearby Sheldon and both Point Lookout and Amity Point on North Stradbroke Island. Since its inception, the Brisbane City Council land acquisition program for natural reserve has purchased undeveloped properties in Burbank.
A koala habitation protection called Brisbane Koala Park was created, with visitor facilities and boardwalks located on Ford Road. A second park, called JC Trotter Memorial Park, is located on Cherbon Street, adjacent to the Tingalpa Reservoir, it is estimated that 3,000 to 5,000 koalas live in the southeast of Brisbane and this park is designed to protect their habitats and their movement corridors. In 2008, a private property at Burbank became the first property to be classified as conservation area under an environmental covenant with the Brisbane City Council; the agreement is part of the BCC's GreenHeart CitySmart plan which aims to restore 40% of the city's land to natural habitat by 2026. Mount Petrie State School in Mackenzie is the closest public primary school; some students attend Mansfield State High School and Redeemer Lutheran College in Rochedale for their secondary education. Sinai College is a small Jewish school in Burbank. List of Brisbane suburbs University of Queensland: Queensland Places: Burbank

Burbank station (DART)
Burbank station is a DART light rail station located near Dallas Love Field airport for service on the Green Line and Orange Line. The station opened as part of the Green Line's expansion in December 2010, serves the headquarters for Southwest Airlines and an adjacent residential neighborhood; this station was proposed to serve the airport terminal directly with an underground station, but a 2004 study showed that costs would be well beyond acceptable levels and jeopardize a federal grant. The City of Dallas officials and transit agency agreed to a nearby surface-level station on March 12, 2007; because of this, the station was known as Love Field station during construction. In 2010 Inwood/Love Field station was designated for bus service to the airport. Signage at the station still purports a future connection to Love Field. Dallas Area Rapid Transit - Burbank Station
Burbank is a small farming unincorporated community located on the western edge of Millard County, United States, just east of the Nevada border. It is located near the opening of Hamlin Valley, it was founded as a Mormon farming community in the 1870s, with an early post office located at the Dearden Ranch. It was named after the wife of local Judge E. W. Clay. Clay was used as the name of the major spring, first used by the settlers; this spring is the main source of water for Pruess Lake, to the north. Outlaws, cattle rustlers, uncertainty over the local water sources caused the abandonment of the community, with the exception of the Dearden Ranch; the Dearden Ranch was started in 1886 and has been home to the Dearden family since. The local springs that flow into Lake Creek have been informally named after the ranch, but are not named on maps or other documents, with the exception of water rights documents, which do name it Dearden Springs.

Russet Burbank is a potato cultivar with dark brown skin and few eyes, the most grown potato in North America. A russet type, its flesh is white and mealy, it is good for baking and french fries, it is a popular potato. This variety is a mutation of the cultivar'Burbank', selected by the plant breeder Luther Burbank; the known lineage of Russet Burbank began in 1851 when Chauncey E. Goodrich imported Rough Purple Chili Potato from South America in an attempt to add diversity to American potato stocks which were susceptible to late blight. Goodrich bred Garnet Chili from Rough Purple Chili and Albert Bresee bred Early Rose from Garnet Chili, from which Luther Burbank bred Burbank. All the crosses were open pollinated and only the maternal parents are known. Russet Burbank has but incorrectly, been reported to have selected in 1914 by the Colorado potato grower Lou D. Sweet. A 2014 study confirmed that it was released in 1902 by L. L. May & Co and was first known as Netted Gem. To improve the disease resistance of Irish potatoes, Luther Burbank selected the potato that became known as "the Burbank".
It was not patented because plants such as potatoes propagated from tubers, were not granted patents in the United States. Russet Burbank was not popular, accounting for only 4% of potatoes in the US in 1930; the introduction of irrigation in Idaho increased its popularity as growers found it produced large potatoes that were marketed as baking potatoes. The invention of frozen french fries in the'40s and fast food restaurants in the'50s increased its popularity further. By the 2010s, Russet Burbank accounted for 70% of the processed potato market in North America, over 40% of the potato growing area in the US. Restaurants such as McDonald's favor russet potatoes for their size, which produce long pieces suitable for french fries; as of 2009, "McDonald's top tuber is the Russet Burbank". After decades of consumption in North America and processors consider it the standard potato against which others are judged; the Russet Burbank plants are medium sized with stems that have a medium thickness that are prominently angled.
The leaves of this variety are medium sized with primary leaflets. The flowers of the plant are medium sized with dark green buds; the variety has large, long tubers that are cylindrical or flat. There are numerous eyes on the potato that are evenly distributed and the sprouts are a brownish purple colour; the Russet Burbank variety stores well for long periods of time. It can be stored at 7°C for up to five months without the need to apply gasses that inhibit sprouting. One issue that can occur while in storage is internal black spot known as IBS. If the potatoes are harvested too early there could be a skinning issue. Russet Burbank is resistant to black leg, it is moderately resistant to common fusarium dry rot. It is susceptible to fusarium dry rot, late blight, leaf roll, seed-piece decay, tuber net necrosis, verticillium wilt, PVX and PVY
