San Diego, California

San Diego is a city in the state of California, USA, just off the border with Mexico. The city has 1,419,516 residents, and is the core of the metropolitan San Diego-Carlsbad region with 3,337,685 residents (U.S. Census, 2017).

Population

The population consists of 43 percent white, 30.2 percent Hispanic / Latino, 6.4 percent African American, and 16.8 percent of Asian descent (U.S. Census, 2017). The population doubled from about 2,600 in 1880 to about 16,200 in 1890 - mainly due to the construction of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1884 that linked the city and the west coast to the eastern states of the United States via Albuquerque in New Mexico and Dodge City in Kansas.. San Diego also grew strongly from 1940 (approximately 203,000 residents) to 1960 (approximately 575,000 residents) due to the expansion of a number of military installations and bases. The population again doubled from 1960 to 1990 (about 1.1 million residents) and the growth from 1990 to 2014 was about 21 per cent.

Business

San Diego has a very good harbor, and is the main base for the U.S. Pacific fleet, including Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Naval Base Point Loma and Naval Base San Diego as key installations. This is the world's largest fleet base. The city has a large aircraft, rocket industry - which has given it the nickname "Fightertown USA". Other important industries are shipbuilding and petroleum refineries. Noise and tuna catches are still important, but have been declining since the heyday of 1910-1970 when San Diego was called the "Tuna Capital of the World." The electronics industry is also significant, with head offices for companies like Websense and Novatel Wireless.

Due to a pleasant climate and large, beautiful beaches, tourism is an important part of business. The San Diego Zoo is one of the world's largest with over 3,700 animals, including pandas. With the University of California, San Diego at the forefront, the city is the second largest area of biotechnology research in the United States - after Boston. San Diego has a number of museums, art galleries, botanical gardens and large exhibition areas.

History

California's first mission station was founded in San Diego by the Spanish explorer Gaspar de Portolà in 1769. In 1821, Mexico was detached from Spain, and San Diego became part of the Mexican state of Alta California. The old mission station was abandoned, and the Mexicans founded a pueblo in 1834. In 1846, the United States went to war against Mexico, and after taking over the area in 1848, the pueblo gained city status as Old Town in 1850. The city lost its city status in 1852 when it went bankruptcy, and the present San Diego was built five miles further south in the years leading up to 1860.

In addition, there are many printing companies and publishers.

Transport and Communications

To the west, over the Golden Gate, goes the 2.7 km long Golden Gate Bridge.

Culture

San Francisco's downtown area is the seat of several universities and higher education, including the University of California at Berkeley, San Francisco State University, Stanford University in Palo Alto and California State University in Hayward.

San Francisco has a very disparate population, with large colonies of Asians, Blacks, Italians and Latin Americans.

Union Square at Post Street has fashionable shops and flower markets. Further southwest is the city's oldest building, the Spanish Mission Church Mission Dolores, begun in 1782. To the north lies Nob Hill, where wealthy (so-called "nobs") built their mansions; Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill, from the top of the Coit Tower looking down on the once infamous red-light district of Barbary Coast. At Golden Gate are fortifications and several parks, including the beautiful Golden Gate Park with three museums, planetarium and aquarium. The sound is connected by the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, 2.7 km long and completed in 1937. The city lies by the earthquake-prone San Andreas fault, and has had several serious earthquakes, the largest in 1906 and 1989. In 1906, 452 people were killed, in 1989 63 people.

History

San Francisco was founded by the Spaniards in 1776 and occupied by the Americans in 1846, when the city was given its current name. When gold was found in California in 1848, the population increased from 800 to 25,000 in 1850, further to 150,000 in 1870 and to 417,000 in 1910.

At the San Francisco Conference in 1945, the UN Charter was created. The peace agreement with Japan was signed here in 1951.

The multicultural city has been a center for alternative movements since the 19th century. In the 1950s, the city became a center for the beat movement, and here the hippie movement emerged with peak years in 1967-68. The Haight – Ashbury district was a popular place for "flower children" in the 1960s. San Francisco has also later retained its character as a "liberal" city, including in its view on homosexuality and the use of intoxicants.

History

Huchien Indians lived in the Oakland area for thousands of years. In 1772 it was colonized by Spanish settlers. The later town was on a part of Rancho San Antonio. In 1842 the heirs divided this. The part of the present Oakland is called "Enchar" (Spanish: "Oak Oak") after the oak forest in the area. Here Moses Chase leased arable land and planned the city of Clinton, later Brooklyn. Horace Carpentier started a ferry service across San Francisco Bay in 1851 and acquired the year after an area he named Oakland, after the coastal oak trees, to develop a city west of Clinton. In 1852 Carpentier and his companions expanded the Edson Adams and Andrew Moon area, which then had 75-100 residents and included two hotels and a boat yard. In 1854, Oakland gained city status.

The city was chosen as the terminus for the first transcontinental railroad in 1869 and the port area was gradually developed. Oakland and Brooklyn, which had been bridged the year before, were merged in 1872. The first of several electric tram lines between Oakland and Berkeley came into operation in 1891. Refugees following an earthquake in San Francisco in 1906 doubled the population. General Motors opened the first car factory in Oakland in 1916.

The 7.1-kilometer-long San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge complex opened in 1936. During World War II, there was a lot of war-oriented industry in Oakland, including shipbuilding and canning production. At the same time, many, including African-American workers and poor whites, immigrated from other parts of the United States. It should create economic competition and racial friction. The militant civil rights organization Black Panthers was founded in 1966.

October 17, 1989, parts of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge were destroyed by a severe earthquake. In 1991, a fire storm broke down from the Berkeley and Oakland hills, destroying more than 4,000 homes. Since the mid-1990s, major development and urban renewal projects have been completed, particularly in Oakland's downtown and port areas.

The fashionable Beverly Hills villa district is southwest of Hollywood.

The name Hollywood means " holly woods" and may have originally been the name of a ranch built near Los Angeles in the 1880s. Hollywood may also have been named after a Chicago residence.

History, economics and culture

The first house was an adobe built in 1853. In the 1870s, there was a thriving farming community in the district also known as the Cahuenga Valley. In 1887, Hollywood was founded by Horace Wilkins as a religious colony, and in 1910 Hollywood was merged with Los Angeles.

Due to the varied landscape, good light conditions and stable climate, Hollywood became a preferred place to establish film studios. The first movie studio was established in 1911, and a growing number of film companies, including Warner Brothers, Columbia Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), Universal Universal Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Paramount Pictures, were established and had their headquarters and studios.

Until the late 1940s, Hollywood's position as a leading movie center was unquestioned. Movie stars built great houses with large swimming pools. Many had outrageous behaviors that were described by authors such as Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley and in the gossip columns of newspapers.

After World War II, movie studios began to move out of Hollywood due to the use of real movie locations. After a "golden age" from about 1920 to 1950, many movie studios were left to show producers for television. The first commercial television station came into operation in 1947. In the early 1960s, Hollywood was the center of production for most of American television entertainment. However, Hollywood is still an important administrative center for the film and television industry.

The big letter line HOLLYWOODLAND was erected in the Hollywood Hills in 1923 to promote housing development, but in 1949 the last four letters of the landmark were removed to refer to the district. The sign on Mount Lee is in fact not in Hollywood, but in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood.

The Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater was built in 1922, accommodates more than 17,000 people and is used primarily for concerts. From the same year, "Symphonies under The Stars", which are annual summer concerts, have been arranged here.

"Academy Awards" (Oscar -statuetter) for best films, performances and a variety of other categories awarded since 1929 annually in The Dolby Theater, which opened in 2001.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame was created in 1958 as an ever-expanding system of terrazzo tiles along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. The tiles have pink stars with names of people honored with one of five different symbols of industries in the entertainment industry.

Also famous are the annual "Hollywood Half Marathon" and "Hollywood Christmas Parade".

Since several years of severe decline in the 1980s, much of Hollywood has been revitalized. In 1999, the Hollywood extension of a subway from downtown Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley opened with stops in Western Avenue, Vine Street and Highland Avenue. In 2001, by a referendum, an unsuccessful attempt was made to dislodge Hollywood from Los Angeles.

Several elementary schools and colleges in Hollywood are run by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
