According to the 5-foot contours on the King County GIS iMap website, the highest point on Capitol Hill is just south of Volunteer Park and the observations tower. There are two square-shaped 455-foot contours on the west side of the two blocks bounded by 14th, 15th, Prospect, and Aloha. These areas are almost entirely on private property (residences).
That said, all the land in this vicinity is altered by man over the course of the past century or more, so there is no natural ground left. And the area is largely flat. It is hard to deny as ascent of Capitol Hill to anyone who has been to the tower. To be sure, one could walk south on 14th Avenue and east on Ward, probing for accessible higher ground.
Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch.
It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com
play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction.
The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster
addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
