Home to the Chumash and Tongva, Los Angeles was claimed by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo for Spain in 1542 along with the rest of what would become Alta California.
The city was founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve. It became a part of Mexico in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence. In 1848, at the end of the Mexican–American War, Los Angeles and the rest of California were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, becoming part of the United States. Los Angeles was incorporated as a municipality on April 4, 1850, five months before California achieved statehood; the discovery of oil in the 1890s brought rapid growth to the city. The completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, delivering water from Eastern California assured the city's continued rapid growth; the Los Angeles coastal area was settled by the Chumash tribes. A Gabrieleño settlement in the area was called iyáangẚ, meaning "poison oak place". Maritime explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo claimed the area of southern California for the Spanish Empire in 1542 while on an official military exploring expedition moving north along the Pacific coast from earlier colonizing bases of New Spain in Central and South America.
Gaspar de Portolà and Franciscan missionary Juan Crespí, reached the present site of Los Angeles on August 2, 1769. In 1771, Franciscan friar Junípero Serra directed the building of the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, the first mission in the area. On September 4, 1781, a group of forty-four settlers known as "Los Pobladores" founded the pueblo they called El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles,'The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels'; the present-day city has the largest Roman Catholic Archdiocese in the United States. Two-thirds of the Mexican or settlers were mestizo or mulatto, a mixture of African and European ancestry; the settlement remained a small ranch town for decades, but by 1820, the population had increased to about 650 residents. Today, the pueblo is commemorated in the historic district of Los Angeles Pueblo Plaza and Olvera Street, the oldest part of Los Angeles. New Spain achieved its independence from the Spanish Empire in 1821, the pueblo continued as a part of Mexico.
During Mexican rule, Governor Pío Pico made Los Angeles Alta California's regional capital. Mexican rule ended during the Mexican–American War: Americans took control from the Californios after a series of battles, culminating with the signing of the Treaty of Cahuenga on January 13, 1847. Railroads arrived with the completion of the transcontinental Southern Pacific line to Los Angeles in 1876 and the Santa Fe Railroad in 1885. Petroleum was discovered in the city and surrounding area in 1892, by 1923, the discoveries had helped California become the country's largest oil producer, accounting for about one-quarter of the world's petroleum output. By 1900, the population had grown to more than 102,000; the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, under the supervision of William Mulholland, assured the continued growth of the city. Due to clauses in the city's charter that prevented the City of Los Angeles from selling or providing water from the aqueduct to any area outside its borders, many adjacent city and communities became compelled to annex themselves into Los Angeles.
Los Angeles created the first municipal zoning ordinance in the United States. On September 14, 1908, the Los Angeles City Council promulgated residential and industrial land use zones; the new ordinance established three residential zones of a single type, where industrial uses were

Adam "JR" Chandler Jr. is a fictional character from the ABC and The Online Network daytime drama All My Children. He was portrayed by Jacob Young from 2003 to 2011, prior to Ryan Bittle taking over the role in 2013. Bittle was cast as the new JR on Prospect Park's continuation of All My Children; the character was born onscreen on July 3, 1989 to Dixie Cooney and her estranged ex-husband, Adam Chandler. In March 2004, the character's birth year was revised to 1983, he is a member of both the powerful and wealthy Chandler and Cooney families, being the son of Adam Chandler and great-nephew of Palmer Cortlandt. The writers characterized JR as caring, but ruthless if betrayed, explaining the latter by way of his difficult upbringing; the character's softer personality has been attributed to his mother, Dixie Cooney, as well as to his son, AJ, true love Babe Carey. Credited as complex, he has been cited as a television anti-hero, "bad boy," and his struggles with family, romantic partners, alcohol addiction have been documented in literature.
Actor Jacob Young, on The Bold and the Beautiful and General Hospital prior to joining All My Children, stated that he had good instincts, but that he "was young and kind of doe-eyed to the world" then. It was not until the actor stepped into the All My Children role of JR Chandler that his acting range became more focused, he started to use tools he learned in classes and felt that his acting became more refined because of it. With his portrayal of JR, he explained how this factored in: "They twisted JR in a different direction," he stated. "They started off with JR not respecting his father and having a lot of elements of his mother in him. He was much more soft, they started toying with it and couldn't believe what was coming out of me. I'd always been the honorable guy. "They put me in these nice designer suits, I feel like a million bucks. I take that million-buck feeling and go a little sinister with it."One aspect of JR's personality are "devious tones" sometimes present in his dialogue.
"When the character is in a good mood and has the upper hand, he has all these one-liners," Young relayed. When working with former All My Children co-star Alexa Havins, Young would shock Havins with the character's words. To make sure she was unaware of how he was going to deliver a crass line, he would keep it hidden. "You can break the wording down and make it a little more offensive," he cited. "And I try to nail that because that's what JR's supposed to do."The writers were looking for an actor who could radiate the essence of Adam Chandler's son, felt that taking JR down the path of darkness would help with that. Young, the actor chosen as best suited for the part, detailed the transition: "They wanted it to be'like father, like son,' so I watched David Canary's mannerisms and delivery. I tried to mold those into my own, enough to, they started writing my dialogue like his. He has some one-liners. David is as big. He's like,'Here's my boy!' We have a great dynamic together." Young's portrayal of JR propelled the character into one of the show's more popular and hated characters.
Have you seen those piercing blue eyes? When they're not flashing with anger, a glimpse of the troubled young man, wounded by the presumed death of his mother shows through. Like Babe, we could fall into the trap of thinking that a little tender loving care from us would fix him right up. JR was first seen in May 1989. In 2003, JR is aged by the casting Jacob Young, he has been involved with Amanda Dillon, Kendall Hart Slater, Annie Lavery, linked to Babe Carey and Marissa Tasker. JR and Babe Carey is involved in a three-way baby switch storyline. Miranda Montgomery's daughter Miranda Montgomery is switch to Babe and JR, while Babe/JR's child is given to Kelly Cramer. Kelly's recent pregnancy ends given to Bianca; the truth is revealed and Miranda goes back to Bianca, while AJ is returned to Babe/JR, Kelly Cramer deals with the death and the situation. Babe Carey dies from injuries of a tornado and JR gets involved with Babe's twin sister and AJ's aunt Marissa Tasker. In late 2011, Marissa dumps JR for Bianca Montgomery.
JR becomes drunk. Brooke and Adam hold a shot is hear, it is revealed. On the night that changed Pine Valley five years ago, the drunken JR was about to shoot someone, but David Hayward intervened, it is revealed on May 2013 that JR shot and killed Marissa Tasker, his ex-wife.

Television, sometimes shortened to tele or telly, is a telecommunication medium used for transmitting moving images in monochrome, or in color, in two or three dimensions and sound. The term can refer to a television set, a television program, or the medium of television transmission. Television is a mass medium for advertising and news. Television became available in crude experimental forms in the late 1920s, but it would still be several years before the new technology would be marketed to consumers. After World War II, an improved form of black-and-white TV broadcasting became popular in the United States and Britain, television sets became commonplace in homes and institutions. During the 1950s, television was the primary medium for influencing public opinion. In the mid-1960s, color broadcasting was introduced in most other developed countries; the availability of multiple types of archival storage media such as Betamax, VHS tape, local disks, DVDs, flash drives, high-definition Blu-ray Discs, cloud digital video recorders has enabled viewers to watch pre-recorded material—such as movies—at home on their own time schedule.
For many reasons the convenience of remote retrieval, the storage of television and video programming now occurs on the cloud. At the end of the first decade of the 2000s, digital television transmissions increased in popularity. Another development was the move from standard-definition television to high-definition television, which provides a resolution, higher. HDTV may be transmitted in various formats: 1080p, 720p. Since 2010, with the invention of smart television, Internet television has increased the availability of television programs and movies via the Internet through streaming video services such as Netflix, Amazon Video, iPlayer and Hulu. In 2013, 79 % of the world's households owned; the replacement of early bulky, high-voltage cathode ray tube screen displays with compact, energy-efficient, flat-panel alternative technologies such as LCDs, OLED displays, plasma displays was a hardware revolution that began with computer monitors in the late 1990s. Most TV sets sold in the 2000s were flat-panel LEDs.
Major manufacturers announced the discontinuation of CRT, DLP, fluorescent-backlit LCDs by the mid-2010s. In the near future, LEDs are expected to be replaced by OLEDs. Major manufacturers have announced that they will produce smart TVs in the mid-2010s. Smart TVs with integrated Internet and Web 2.0 functions became the dominant form of television by the late 2010s. Television signals were distributed only as terrestrial television using high-powered radio-frequency transmitters to broadcast the signal to individual television receivers. Alternatively television signals are distributed by coaxial cable or optical fiber, satellite systems and, since the 2000s via the Internet; until the early 2000s, these were transmitted as analog signals, but a transition to digital television is expected to be completed worldwide by the late 2010s. A standard television set is composed of multiple internal electronic circuits, including a tuner for receiving and decoding broadcast signals. A visual display device which lacks a tuner is called a video monitor rather than a television.
The word television comes from Ancient Greek τῆλε, meaning'far', Latin visio, meaning'sight'. The first documented usage of the term dates back to 1900, when the Russian scientist Constantin Perskyi used it in a paper that he presented in French at the 1st International Congress of Electricity, which ran from 18 to 25 August 1900 during the International World Fair in Paris; the Anglicised version of the term is first attested in 1907, when it was still "...a theoretical system to transmit moving images over telegraph or telephone wires". It was "...formed in English or borrowed from French télévision." In the 19th century and early 20th century, other "...proposals for the name of a then-hypothetical technology for sending pictures over distance were telephote and televista." The abbreviation "TV" is from 1948. The use of the term to mean "a television set" dates from 1941; the use of the term to mean "television as a medium" dates from 1927. The slang term "telly" is more common in the UK; the slang term "the tube" or the "boob tube" derives from the bulky cathode ray tube used on most TVs until the advent of flat-screen TVs.
Another slang term for the TV is "idiot box". In the 1940s and throughout the 1950s, during the early rapid growth of television programming and television-set ownership in the United States, another slang term became used in that period and continues to be used today to distinguish productions created for broadcast on television from films developed for presentation in movie theaters; the "small screen", as both a compound adjective and noun, became specific references to television, while the "big screen" was used to identify productions made for theatrical release. Facsimile transmission systems for still photographs pioneered methods of mechanical scanning of images in the early 19th century. Alexander Bain introduced the facsimile machine between 1843 and 1846. Frederick Bakewell demonstrated a working laboratory version in 1851. Willoughby Smith discovered the photoconductivity of the element selenium in 1873; as a 23-year-old German university student, Paul Julius Gottlieb Nipkow proposed and patented the Nipkow disk in 1884.
This was a spinning disk with a spiral pattern of holes in it, so each hole scanned a line of the image. Although he never built a working model
Korn is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, formed in 1993. The band is notable for bringing it into the mainstream. Formed in 1993 by three members of the band L. A. P. D. Korn's current lineup features founding members James "Munky" Shaffer, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, Brian "Head" Welch, Jonathan Davis, with the addition of Ray Luzier in 2007, replacing the band's first drummer, David Silveria. Korn made a demo tape, Neidermayer's Mind, in 1993, distributed free to record companies and on request to members of the public, their debut album, was released in 1994, followed by Life Is Peachy in 1996. The band first experienced mainstream success with Follow the Leader and Issues, both of which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200; the band's mainstream success continued with Untouchables, Take a Look in the Mirror and See You on the Other Side. A compilation album, Greatest Hits Vol. 1, was released in 2004, spanning a decade of singles and concluding the band's recording contract with Immortal Records and Epic Records.
They signed to Virgin Records, releasing See You on the Other Side in 2005, an untitled album in 2007. Korn's other recent albums, Korn III: Remember Who You Are and The Path of Totality, were released via Roadrunner Records, The Paradigm Shift being released via Prospect Park and Caroline Records, their latest album, The Serenity of Suffering, was released on October 21, 2016. As of 2012, Korn had sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. Twelve of the band's official releases have peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200, eight of which have peaked in the top five. Seven official releases are certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, two are certified double platinum, one is certified triple platinum, one is certified five times platinum and two are certified Gold. Korn has released seven video albums and thirty-nine music videos; the band has released forty-one singles. Korn has earned two Grammy Awards out of eight nominations and two MTV Video Music Awards out of eleven nominations.
Before Korn was formed, three of the original members of the band were associated with the band L. A. P. D. – James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu, David Silveria. Consisting of Richard Morrill, James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu, David Silveria joined when he was 16; when the band moved from Bakersfield, California to Los Angeles, Silveria dropped out of high school and Shaffer stayed in Bakersfield. When Shaffer reunited with the band, they found a manager and released an EP entitled Love and Peace Dude in 1989 through Triple X Records. L. A. P. D. Released their first full-length studio album on May 3, 1991 which consisted of eleven tracks; the album was entitled. After releasing two albums, L. A. P. D. Broke up, they were briefly known as Creep, recording a demo with a singer named Corey until Shaffer and Silveria enlisted Brian Welch and Jonathan Davis to form the band that went on to become Korn. When thinking of a band name, someone suggested "corn", but the band rejected that name, so Shaffer had the idea to spell the name with both a "K" instead of a "C", a backwards "R", so the band's name would appear as "KoЯn".
It may not be related to Korn Ferry, the management consulting firm. The idea of using a backwards "R" came from the logo of toy retailer Toys R Us, for which many of the band members had worked; the logo was designed by vocalist Jonathan Davis. Silveria explained, "the music makes the name, but once we get established, it makes the name cool."Korn rented a studio from Jeff Creath, called Underground Chicken Sound, in Huntington Beach, California. While they were recording at Underground Chicken Sound, a crowd had been loitering outside the studio; the band began playing a prelude to a song, "Clown", resulting in a larger crowd gathering. Arvizu said the crowd gathered because it sounded so "different." Korn started performing at gigs in the summer of 1993, with members saying that touring was a "pain-in-the-ass." While in Huntington Beach, the band was spotted by Immortal Records A&R employee Paul Pontius. Pontius would describe Korn's sound as "the new genre of rock." In 1993, Korn released Neidermayer's Mind.
The album had limited printing, was not well received by critics or the public. It was released to record companies and to people who filled out a flyer given out at gigs they played for free with Biohazard and House of Pain. With this demo, Korn pioneered the nu metal sound and rhythm. By May 1994, Korn began recording their debut album with Ross Robinson, it was finished recording by the end of June 1994. On October 11, 1994, Korn released a self–titled album through Immortal Records, an Epic imprint label, which peaked at number one on the Heatseekers Albums chart, would reach number seventy-two on the Billboard 200 in February 1996; the album received positive reviews by critics, it is said to have established the new wave of metal. As well as sparking the nu metal genre, the album started record producer Ross Robinson's music career, it influenced other bands, such as Slipknot, Coal Chamber and Limp Bizkit. After Korn finished recording the album, they began touring with House of Pain, their record company gave them enough money for their own tour bus.
Korn's first gig was in Atlanta. About halfway through the tour, the tour bus that their record company gave them stopped working, Korn had to find a new one, their first tour was not successful in promoting the
