to a variety of loose rubble or brash which, in that part of the country, forms a good soil for growing corn. The name was adopted by William Smith for a thin band of shelly limestone which, in the south of England, breaks up in the manner indicated. Although only a thin group of rocks (1025 feet c. 300 m), it is remarkably persistent; it may be traced from Weymouth to the Yorkshire

Sudbrook Park
SUDBROOK PARK is a historic neighborhood near Pikesville , Maryland located just northwest of the Baltimore City limits in Baltimore County . The community dates to 1889 when it was designed by American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. (1822–1903) and developed by the Sudbrook Company. Known most for designing well-known urban projects like Central Park in New York City , Olmsted conceived this "suburban village" with curved roads and open green spaces, traits that set the community apart from its contemporaries. Two homes in the district were designed by architect George Archer in the Colonial Revival style . Sudbrook Park was registered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and from 1993 to 1999 portions of Sudbrook Park became listed as Baltimore County Historic Districts. Today, the community continues to uphold Olmsted's vision through community association regulations

Belemnite
Belemnitina Belemnopseina Belemnotheutina BELEMNITIDA (or BELEMNITES) is an extinct order of cephalopods which existed during the Mesozoic era , from the Hettangian age of the Lower Jurassic to the Maastrichtian age of the Upper Cretaceous . The belemnite is the state fossil of Delaware . DESCRIPTION Fossil guards of belemnites from the Jurassic of Wyoming Belemnites were superficially squid -like. They possessed ten arms of equal length studded with small inward-curving hooks used for grasping prey. However, they lacked the pair of specialized tentacles present in modern squid. Belemnites (and other belemnoids ) were distinct from modern squid by possessing hard internal skeletons . The internal skeleton was composed of the guard or rostrum (plural: rostra), a heavy solid structure at the posterior of the animals

The ENCYCLOPæDIA BRITANNICA ELEVENTH EDITION (1910–11) is a 29-volume reference work, an edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica
Encyclopædia Britannica
. It was developed during the encyclopaedia's transition from a British to an American publication. Some of its articles were written by the best-known scholars of the time. This edition of the encyclopedia is now in the public domain , but the outdated nature of some of its content makes its use as a source for modern scholarship problematic. Some articles have special value and interest to modern scholars as cultural artifacts of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Tens of thousands of its articles were copied directly into , where they still can be found

Saurian
The clade SAURIA was traditionally a suborder for lizards which originally (before 1800) comprised crocodilians too. It has been redefined as the group containing the most recent common ancestor of archosaurs and lepidosaurs and all its descendants; as such it was commonly thought that Sauria
Sauria
is a crowned-base grouping of diapsids . However, recent genomic studies and comprehensive studies in the fossil record suggest that turtles are closely related to archosaurs, not to parareptiles as previously thought. As such Sauria
Sauria
can be seen as a crowned-group of all modern reptiles (including birds) within the larger total group Sauropsida
