Gulf of Darién

The Gulf of Darién is the southernmost region of the Caribbean Sea, located north and east of the border between Panama and Colombia. Within the gulf is the Gulf of Urabá, a small lip of sea extending southward, between Caribana Point and Cape Tiburón, Colombia, on the southern shores of, the port city of Turbo, Colombia; the Atrato River delta extends into the Gulf of Darién. It was the site of autonomous Scotland's one major attempt at colonialism; the first expedition of five ships set sail from Leith on July 14, 1698, with around 1,200 people on board. Their orders were "to proceed to the Bay of Darien, make the Isle called the Golden Island... some few leagues to the leeward of the mouth of the great River of Darien... and there make a settlement on the mainland". After calling at Madeira and the West Indies, the fleet made landfall off the coast of Darien on November 2; the settlers christened their new home "New Caledonia".

Disorderly house

In English criminal law a disorderly house is a house in which the conduct of its inhabitants is such as to become a public nuisance, or outrages public decency, or tends to corrupt or deprave, or injures the public interest. To persistently or habitually keep a disorderly house is an offence against the common law, punishable by fine or imprisonment. A charge of keeping a disorderly house is the typical charge against one accused of maintaining a brothel, as brothel-keeping is one of the most common causes for the charge of keeping a disorderly house, "disorderly house" is something of a euphemism for brothel in the English legal community; the laws on the subject of brothels as disorderly houses are found under statutory offences under sections 33 to 36 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956. There were statutory provisions relating to disorderly houses under: the Disorderly Houses Act 1751. Sections 1 and 2 of the Sunday Observance Act 1780. Both acts have been repealed in the UK.
