A Taste of Seattle, Washington

did you know?

  1. Seattle is the northernmost major city in the contiguous United States, and the largest city in the Pacific Northwest and in the state of Washington. The 2010 census found that Seattle is home to 630,320 residents within a metropolitan area of some 3.4 million inhabitants.

  2. Seattle's current official nickname is the "Emerald City", the result of a contest held in 1981; the reference is to the lush evergreen forests of the area. Seattle is also referred to informally as the "Gateway to Alaska", "Rain City", and "Jet City", the last from the local influence of Boeing. Seattle residents are known as Seattleites.

  3. Seattle is ranked as one of the most car-congested cities in the United States, and efforts to promote compact development and transportation choices are perennial policy issues.

  4. The Henry Art Gallery opened in 1927, the first public art museum in Washington. The Seattle Art Museum (SAM) opened in 1933; SAM opened a museum downtown in 1991 (expanded and reopened 2007); since 1991, the 1933 building has been SAM's Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM). Regional ethnic collections include the Nordic Heritage Museum, the Wing Luke Asian Museum and the Northwest African American Museum.

  5. Seattle is the birthplace of rock legend Jimi Hendrix and the rock music style known as "grunge," which was made famous by local groups Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam. In more recent years, Seattle has been known for indie rock and hip hop music.

  6. The city is also home to such varied musicians as avant-garde jazz musicians Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz, rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot, smooth jazz saxophonist Kenny G, Heart, heavy metal bands Queensr˙che, Nevermore and Sunn O))), as well as such poppier rock bands as Harvey Danger, Goodness, and The Presidents of the United States of America. Such musicians as Jimi Hendrix, Duff McKagan, Nikki Sixx, and Quincy Jones spent their formative years in Seattle.

  7. Seattle's climate is usually described as Oceanic or Marine west coast, with fairly mild, wet winters and mild, relatively dry summers. Like much of the Pacific Northwest it falls within a cool, dry-summer subtropical zone, with cool-summer Mediterranean characteristics such as its usually dry summers.

black/african american opinion


I got bundles of talent in me from reading, writting, and creating media both audio and visual projects of my art about the environment and how I see current events by speaking out. I am all of unemployed, I been denied to attend classes under college level, and I haven't payed a personal bill of my own in like eight months; I was once in prison eight years ago and I think they are (the employment system) still discriminating against me, as a rehabilitated ex-felon word to God.

I have no known association with any friends in great places, who maybe can throw me a chance for employmentopportunity, I have many talents to give in effort to ensure that my bosses are rrecieving satisfactory results. What should I do, I am to stress about employment to focus on school and homework. Is it really a problem.
