President's Park

President's Park, located in Washington, D. C. encompasses the White House including the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the Treasury Building, grounds. President's Park was the original name of Lafayette Square; the current President's Park is administered by the National Park Service. The park is referred to as President's Park or The White House and President's Park. Washington, D. C. was designated as the site for the United States capital in the 1790 Residence Act, with authority given to President George Washington to ready the capital for the government by June 1800. Contests were held to solicit designs for both the United States Capitol and what was called the President's House. James Hoban's design was selected, he supervised the construction. On, the future "White House" was expanded with the West Wing and East Wing, which now houses the office of the president and staff; the White House grounds include the South Lawn, Rose Garden, Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, North Lawn. Lafayette Square is a 6.97 acre public park located directly north of the White House on H Street, bounded by Jackson Place on the west, Madison Place on the east, Pennsylvania Avenue to the south.

The square and the surrounding historic townhouse structures were designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1970. Planned as part of the pleasure grounds surrounding the Executive Mansion, this square was called "President's Park", now the name of the larger National Park Service unit; the park was separated from the White House grounds in 1804, when third President Thomas Jefferson had Pennsylvania Avenue cut through east-west. In 1824, the park was renamed in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette, the Frenchman and military officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War. Lafayette Square has been used as a racetrack, a graveyard, a zoo, a slave market, an encampment for soldiers during the War of 1812, many political protests and celebrations. Andrew Jackson Downing landscaped Lafayette Square in 1851 in the picturesque style. President's Park South is a 52 acres park located just south of the White House fence. Properly, the Ellipse is the name of the five-furlong circumference street within the park.

The entire park is open to the public, features various monuments. The Ellipse is the location for a number of annual events. D. C. locals can be heard to say they are "on the Ellipse", understood to mean that the individual is on the field, bounded by Ellipse Road. The park was conceived in 1791, the first plan for the park was drawn up by Pierre Charles L'Enfant, during the American Civil War, the grounds of the Ellipse and incomplete Washington Monument were used as corrals for horses and cattle, as camp sites for Union troops; the Army Corps of Engineers began landscaping work on the Ellipse in 1867 and worked on it through the late 1880s. The White House Visitor Center is located in the north end of the Herbert C. Hoover Building. Since September 11, 2001, the visitor center no longer serves as a starting point for those going on a reserved tour of the White House; the various exhibits provide an alternative visitor experience for those who did not schedule a tour. The themes of the six permanent exhibits are First Families, Symbols & Images, White House Architecture, White House Interiors, Working White House, Ceremonies and Celebrations.

Astrobrachion constrictum

Astrobrachion constrictum is a basket star in the family Euryalidae. It is found at depths of between 50 and 180 m, but around the coast of New Zealand it occurs in shallow waters, in association with the black coral Antipathella fiordensis. A. constrictum has a central disc growing to a maximum diameter of 25 mm, five slender arms which may reach a length of 50 cm. The genus is characterised by the lateral arm plates being separated by small ventral plates; the colour is variable, ranging from yellowish-white to red, the arms have transverse banding. Astrobrachion adhaerens, the only other species in the genus, is smaller and has longitudinal stripes on the arms; the species is endemic to New Zealand and southeastern Australia, occurs at depths of between 50 and 180 m. These depths are too deep for most scuba divers, which makes it difficult to study these basket stars. However, in the Fiordland in the south-western part of the South Island of New Zealand, unique conditions allow them and their black coral hosts to live in shallower waters where they are within the range of divers and more studied.

Black corals in the genus Antipathella host A. constrictum in a mutualistic association that seems to be a long-lasting arrangement: the basket stars coil their arms around the coral twigs and remain in the same locality for long periods, for life. The basket star has been found in a number of locations around New Zealand on the continental shelf but has never been found living or living anywhere except in association with a black coral colony; the basket stars feed at night, uncoiling their arms from the coral and catching organic particles floating past. They brush their arms against the coral surface and are feeding on detritus and any epizoic organisms that settle there, they are slow-growing, reaching their maximum size at eight years of age

Outline of society

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to society: Society – group of people sharing the same geographical or virtual territory and therefore subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. Such people share a distinctive culture and institutions, which characterize the patterns of social relations between them. Large societies develop social stratification and dominance patterns among its subgroups. A given society may be described as the sum total of social relationships among its members; the branch of science that studies society is sociology. A society can be described as all of the following: System – Social system – People – Social group – Community – Humanity – the entire human race; as a whole, it can be viewed as one great big society. Pre-industrial society Hunter-gatherer society – Pastoral society – Horticultural society – Agrarian society – Feudal society – Industrial society – Post-industrial society – by political structure: Band society – Tribe – Chiefdom – Civilization State – International community – World community – by modernity: Pre-modern – Modern – Post-modern – Communities – while a society is a type of community, it can itself comprise smaller communities.
