University Of Berlin
The HUMBOLDT UNIVERSITY OF BERLIN (German : _Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin_, abbreviated HU BERLIN) is one of Berlin 's oldest universities , founded on 15 October 1811 as the UNIVERSITY OF BERLIN (_Berliner Universität_) by Frederick William III of Prussia , on the initiative of the liberal Prussian educational reformer and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt . The Humboldt university model has strongly influenced other European and Western universities. From 1828 to 1945 it was known as the FREDERICK WILLIAM UNIVERSITY (_Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität_) and also (unofficially) as the _Universität unter den Linden_ after its location in the former palace of Prince Henry of Prussia which his brother, King Frederick II , had built for him between 1748 and 1753 on the avenue Unter den Linden . In 1949 (no personal name in the meantime), it was named _Humboldt-Universität_ in honour of both its organiser Wilhelm and his brother, geographer Alexander von Humboldt . In 2012, the Humboldt University of Berlin was one of eleven German universities to win in the German Universities Excellence Initiative , a national competition for universities organized by the German Federal Government

Seal (emblem)
A SEAL is a device for making an impression in wax , clay, paper, or some other medium, including an embossment on paper, and is also the impression thus made. The original purpose was to authenticate a document, a wrapper for one such as a modern envelope, or the cover of a container or package holding valuables or other objects. The seal-making device is also referred to as the seal _matrix_ or _die_; the imprint it creates as the SEAL IMPRESSION (or, more rarely, the _sealing_). If the impression is made purely as a relief resulting from the greater pressure on the paper where the high parts of the matrix touch, the seal is known as a _dry seal_; in other cases ink or another liquid or liquefied medium is used, in another color than the paper. In most traditional forms of dry seal the design on the seal matrix is in intaglio (cut below the flat surface) and therefore the design on the impressions made is in relief (raised above the surface). The design on the impression will reverse (be a mirror-image of) that of the matrix, which is especially important when script is included in the design, as it very often is. This will not be the case if paper is embossed from behind, where the matrix and impression read the same way, and both matrix and impression are in relief. However engraved gems were often carved in relief, called cameo in this context, giving a "counter-relief" or intaglio impression when used as seals. The process is essentially that of a mould

Doctorate
A DOCTORATE (from Latin _docere_, "to teach") or DOCTOR\'S DEGREE (from Latin _doctor_, "teacher") or DOCTORAL DEGREE (from the ancient formalism _licentia docendi_) is an academic degree awarded by universities that is, in most countries, a research degree that qualifies the holder to teach at the university level in the degree's field, or to work in a specific profession . There are a variety of doctoral degrees, with the most common being the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), which is awarded in many different fields, ranging from the humanities to the scientific disciplines. There are also some doctorates in the US , such as the Juris Doctor (JD), Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) which are generally regarded internationally as professional degrees rather than doctorates, as they are not research degrees and no defense of any dissertation or thesis is performed. Many universities also award _honorary doctorates _ to individuals who have been deemed worthy of special recognition, either for scholarly work or for other contributions to the university or to society

Urban Area
An URBAN AREA is a human settlement with high population density and infrastructure of built environment . Urban areas are created through urbanization and are categorized by urban morphology as cities , towns , conurbations or suburbs . In urbanism , the term contrasts to rural areas such as villages and hamlets and in urban sociology or urban anthropology it contrasts with natural environment . The creation of early predecessors of urban areas during the urban revolution led to the creation of human civilization with modern urban planning , which along with other human activities such as exploitation of natural resources leads to human impact on the environment . The world's urban population in 1950 of just 746 million has increased to 3.9 billion in the decades since. In 2009, the number of people living in urban areas (3.42 billion) surpassed the number living in rural areas (3.41 billion) and since then the world has become more urban than rural. This was the first time that the majority of the world's population lived in a city. In 2014 there were 7.25 billion people living on the planet, of which the global urban population comprised 3.9 billion. The Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs at that time predicted the urban population would grow to 6.4 billion by 2050, with 37% of that growth to come from three countries: China , India and Nigeria

Suburb
A SUBURB is a residential area or a mixed use area, either existing as part of a city or urban area or as a separate residential community within commuting distance of a city. In most English-speaking regions , suburban areas are defined in contrast to central or inner city areas, but in Australian English and South African English , "suburb" has become largely synonymous with what is called a "neighborhood " in other countries and the term extends to inner city areas. In some areas, such as Australia

School Colors
In the United States, SCHOOL COLORS are the colors chosen by a school to represent it on uniforms and other items of identification. Most schools have two colors, which are usually chosen to avoid conflicts with other schools with which the school competes in sports and other activities. The colors are often worn to build morale among the teachers and pupils, and as an expression of school spirit . School colors are often found in pairs and rarely no more than trios, though some professional teams use up to four colors in a set. The choice of colors usually follows the rule of tincture from heraldry , but exceptions to this rule are known. Common primary colors include ORANGE , PURPLE , BLUE , RED , and GREEN . These colors are either paired with a color representing a metal (often BLACK , BROWN , GRAY (or SILVER ), WHITE , or GOLD ), or occasionally each other, such as ORANGE/BLUE, RED/GREEN, or BLUE/YELLOW. Pairing two metals, such as BLACK/WHITE, SILVER/GOLD, and especially BLACK/GOLD, is also a common practice. Finally, some American schools, in a display of patriotism, adopt the national colors of RED, WHITE, OR BLUE. In an effort to further establish identity and promote a standard, many institutions often decree the use of specific shades of colors. MAROON , generally re
