Since the near end of President John Adams’ one term in the year 1800, the White House has served as home to every U.S. President. Although “the people’s house” as it was referred to by Mrs.Kennedy, is tenanted by only one powerful family at a time their footsteps are not the only ones that grace the hallways of the nearly 55,000 square foot executive mansion. Every four to eight years (in most cases) a family moves out of the White House as another moves in, but there are individuals who stay for decades; these are the many members of the White House residence staff. As the staff are sworn to secrecy by the unspoken code of honor inherited by their professional predecessors, stories such as those found between the covers of this
Back in Shakespeare's day theatre was different in many ways but also some parts were the same. How is it different? Well, obviously everything was cheap. Pennies for the pit seats, a few more for the galleries, and then the boxes were the most expensive which were probably not as expensive today. Another thing is, they had posters but they weren't really posters or like programs. They contained no lists of actors, and there were no programs, ushers, or tickets or any of the stuff we have today. The name was announced when you got to the actual play. Their playhouses were not sheltered. They were outside, unlike today how we have a building with a roof over our head for plays. They even had vendors walking around giving out food, like at a stadium!

Back in 1792 when he was only five, Tim had traveled from upstate New York to Washington D.C. where he solved his first problem. It was the summer of 1792, and with the summer comes the bugs. Not just any bugs, it was Fred the fly and Stan the spider. They were attacking Mr. President. He is the most important person in the United States and he was being attacked like crazy! What would the Americans do without him? The first idea that came to Tim’s head was “let's build a huge house”. So Tim did just that. He didn't waste any time and sprang into action. It took only a few hours and it was complete. A few bangs and pows. On the presidential grounds stood a pink house. Tim named it The White House to keep racial discrimination to a minimum. No Tim didn't just paint it pink to make it look pretty, he did it to scare the bugs off. Tim had just realized that the president’s term was coming to an end so he had convinced the U.S to let him live in his White House for another

It took eight years for the house to just become livable. "Our first president, George Washington, selected the site for the White House" ("Inside the White House"). The White House consists of six levels and about 132 rooms are in the Residence. There are also "412 doors, 147 windows, twenty-eight fireplaces, eight staircases, and three elevators. also the White House toke 570 gallons of paint to cover just the outside" ("Inside the White House"). "By the time our third president, Thomas Jefferson, moved into the White House in 1801, most of the outside structures were finished. The White House was the largest residential house in America! Jefferson ordered wallpaper and furniture from France" ("History of the White House"). The White House has been renovated many times by our Presidents. Thomas Jefferson had added new details just a few months after the White House was just finished being built. He had two water closets and bookending terrace-pavilions. This made the White House more suitable to show what a leader's house would look like. One of the next things to happen to the White House was
Hello President Trump. May I interest you in an another multi-million dollar house? Of course, you already own several houses and you are going to live in the White House. But this one is better than the White House.
Many say the white house on Maple Street is strange and the old people who lived there would definitely agree. Nobody had stayed at the house for more than a year, especially since there was something strange inside its walls. The day came when another family had bought the house. That was the day their lives changed because there was someone already in the house. They were mad at the other owners for it, but they couldn’t sell the house because it was too late to find another house on the market. The person had already introduced himself and invited them to stay. The family said that they wanted some peace and quiet and nobody bothering them but they were wrong.
They each wore many layers of tattered clothing and looked like northern outdoorsmen who had been living on their own for far too long. They sat at the table with two small and burn scarred coffee mugs filled with hot water. Along with an incomplete deck of cards scattered across the table resembling some sort of poker game. On days when they did not need to scavenge and it was clear enough to see through the ash and cloud covered skies, they sat at the table and looked out over the capital. Hundreds of years ago this would have been a beautiful view of the gorgeous White House and it’s landscape. There would have been colorful displays of lush green grass and trees, with the iconic white pillars of the White House towering in the back ground. Today the pillars are still there except for one in the middle which had crumbled at its top but the bottom still stood, rising half way up in the air. Its beautiful yard was now black and ash covered and any trees had long since rotted away. The building itself was still incredibly well put together compared to it’s peers. It stood as a glimpse of what was once possible of human kind, only to be snatched away by the sudden

Two men are responsible for the beautiful architecture that is the Teatro Olimpico but neither of them worked on it at the same time. Both Andrea Palladio and his successor Vincenzo Scamozzi contributed their own ideas to the theatre. It is fact that Palladio had his hand in most of the design but it can be argued that the Teatro Olimpico would not be as it is today without Scamozzi.
Twelfth Night is not a typical Shakespearean play, there are not any brutal deaths or any crazy made up stories, but instead this play revolves around love. Shakespeare, being a man that had experienced many types of love, writes this play to enhance the readers views on love. Love is not something that one can control, but it has a mind of its own and love can be altered at anytime. Shakespeare presents three main types of love in this play, true love, friendship love, and recompense.
