    GSK or GlaxoSmithKline a big multinational pharmaceutical company. I don't know too much about them under than they manufacture a lot of drugs and vaccines including the only approved malaria vaccine. I think it's pretty neat that they have a vaccine center here in the area.

    A descendant of Newton's apple tree off International Drive in Van Ness. This is a descendant of the tree from which it is reputed that Newton saw an apple fall that inspired his musings on gravitational force. Another fun fact is that it is on the site of the National Bureau of Standards (now known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology) before it later moved to Gaithersburg.

    Horticulture: derived from the Latin words, hortus, meaning ''garden'' and colere, meaning ''to cultivate"

    At the Bladensburg Waterfront, there's a little garden and greenhouse with grow lights.
