Georgian Architecture
GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE is the name given in most English-speaking countries to the set of architectural styles current between 1714 and 1830. It is eponymous for the first four British monarchs of the House of Hanover —George I , George II , George III , and George IV —who reigned in continuous succession from August 1714 to June 1830. The style was revived in the late 19th century in the United States as Colonial Revival architecture and in the early 20th century in Great Britain as NEO-GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE; in both it is also called GEORGIAN REVIVAL ARCHITECTURE. In the United States the term "Georgian" is generally used to describe all buildings from the period, regardless of style; in Britain it is generally restricted to buildings that are "architectural in intention", and have stylistic characteristics that are typical of the period, though that covers a wide range

Boxing The Compass
The POINTS OF THE COMPASS mark the divisions on a compass , which is primarily divided into four points: north , south , east , and west . These cardinal directions are further subdivided by the addition of the four intercardinal (or ordinal) directions—northeast (NE), southeast (SE), southwest (SW), and northwest (NW)—to indicate the eight principal winds. In meteorological usage, further intermediate points between cardinal and ordinal points, such as north-northeast (NNE) are added to give the 16 points of a wind compass . 32-point compass rose At the most complete division are the full thirty-two points of the mariner\'s compass , which adds points such as north by east (NbE) between north and north-northeast, and northeast by north (NEbN) between north-northeast and northeast. A compass point allows reference to a specific course (or azimuth ) in a colloquial fashion, without having to compute or remember degrees
