A hamlet of around 50 people that serves as a regional centre for the huge region of Australia known as the Nullarbor Plain.
Near the Great Australian Bight, its origial location was actually along the Coast and even had a telegraph station, but a plague of rabbits destroyed all the dune vegetation and the villiage was then buried by a sandstom.
Despite such a low population, the risk for Cyclones and Earthquakes is perhaps lower there than in any other area of Australia (even though it is near the coast, which modifies the temperature to some extent)

According to Wikipedia, the name comes from the "Aboriginal word Yinculyer which one source gives as referring to the rising of the planet Venus"
"Eucla (31‹43ŒS 128‹53ŒE; post code: 6443) is the easternmost town in Western Australia, located on the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia"
-Wikipedia

Eucla (or Eucla Motel) appears on all regular sized globes.

an oxymoron.

While "urban" refers to a densely developed area, the very definition of "forest" refers to an area that is undeveloped.
While Wikipedia describes the Jefferson Memorial Forest as "the largest urban forest in the United States" it should be worth mentioning that the area it covers is surrounded by open country (mostly hilly).

A widespread phenomenon whereas a person or persons will buy a house based on it's expansive lawn because they own, or are intending to own, one or more medium to large sized dogs.
One of the leading causes of suburban sprawl, dogsprawl typically involves a ranch house set back from the street with a large open (read-a homogenously treeless lawn) back yard.
Dog Sprawl is similar to, and oftentimes accompanied by childsprawl, except that childsprawl involves children and dogsprawl involves dogs. The presence of large rambunctious yard dogs does nothing for soil productivity and it's use by future generations.
One need only watch HGTV to see the process of dogsprawl in action.
P.S. Control pet overpopulation, spay and neuter your dog.

The period that started on January 1st 1900 and ended December 31st 1999. Often confused with the 20th century (which began and ended exactly 1 year later) as well as the 1st decade of the 1900s.
During the 1900s, many disenfranchised groups got a better life, but on the downside, the landscape was destroyed by the automobile (as well as the airplane) and all the things that followed.
