16.Georgism, named after Henry George (1839-1897) is an economic ideology that holds that everyone owns what they create, but that everything found in nature, most importantly land, belongs equally to all humanity. Georgism has also been synonymous with a single tax on land. To quote George : "We must make land common property." Although this could be done by nationalising land and then leasing it out, George preferred taxing unimproved land value.With the revenue from this "single tax", the state could avoid having to levy any other type of tax. In 1904, a Quaker woman named Elizabeth J. Magie Phillips invented X through which she hoped to be able to explain the single tax theory. After being rehashed several times over the next decades, Charles Darrow came up with the definitive version of X, called Y, by which we all know it today. Y please?

X (Ríonegro, Colombia, December 1 of 1949 - Medellín, December 2 of 1993), gained world infamy as a Colombian drug lord and became so wealthy from the drug trade that in 1989 Forbes magazine listed him as the seventh richest man in the world. X began his criminal career while he was still in school by stealing tombstones and selling them to smugglers from Panama. He also allegedly stole headstones from graveyards and sold them in other villages of the department of Antioquia (this allegation has never been proven). When he was a teenager he began to steal cars from the streets of Medellín. He became involved in other rackets which led him to become a powerful figure in the area. He eventually got into the cocaine business and began building an enormous drug empire during the 1970s, which eventually became known as the Medellín Cartel. In 1992 United States Delta Force operators (and later Navy SEALs from SEAL Team Six) joined the all-out manhunt for X. They trained and advised a special Colombian police task force, known as the Search Bloc, which had been created to locate X. X died on December 2, 1993 after he was cornered by Search Bloc personnel. X is also depicted in the 2001 film Blow in which X played by Cliff Curtis, becomes a business contact of the main character George Jung. X?

One theory of origin is that Y relates to the destruction of X by Olaf II of Norway in 1014 (alternatively cited as 1009). Reportedly Olaf I of Norway also burned the X during raids in England during the 980s, the X was also destroyed by a tornado in 1091 and burned in 1136. Y is said to derive from a Old Norse original by Óttarr svarti, quoted in Heimskringla . The Online Medieval & Classical Library gives this translation for the section 12. The Sixth Battle of Saga of Olaf Haraldson: Part I in Heimskringla: X is broken down. — Gold is won, and bright renown. Shields resounding, War-horns sounding, Hild is shouting in the din!

London Bridge is Falling down.

In the movie Y, X explains the origins of his nickname: he gets stuck with "every _____ job that comes along.“ X has little use for many of the official rules of police conduct, dismissing them as "red tape" and loathes the court system that lets the criminals get away with their crimes. For X, everything is black and white: there are good guys and there are bad guys, and the bad guys must be punished. This creates a conflict between X and the court systems, which frequently causes a vicious cycle: he catches bad guys, the courts release them because he did not comply with procedure, he must catch them again. X adheres absolutely to his own code of ethics. He is completely incorruptible, is devoted to protecting and avenging the victims of violent crime and when pursuing criminals, tries to minimize the danger for innocent bystanders as much as possible. Even so, his fight against criminals is ferocious and merciless and he shows no hesitation or remorse at killing them. He is routinely depicted in virtually all of the films as being a superb marksman and formidable hand-to-hand combatant. X?

X (March 19, 1906–May 31, 1962), sometimes referred to as "the architect of the Holocaust", was a Nazi and SS - Obersturmbannführer (equivalent to Lieutenant Colonel). Due to his organizational talents and ideological reliability, he was charged by Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich with the task of facilitating and managing the logistics of mass deportation of Jews to ghettos and extermination camps in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe. After the war, he travelled to Argentina using a fraudulently obtained laissez-passer issued by the International Red Cross and lived there under a false identity working for Mercedes-Benz until 1960. He was captured by Israeli Mossad operatives in Argentina and tried in an Israeli court on fifteen criminal charges, including crimes against humanity and war crimes. He was convicted and hanged in 1962.

The first recorded use of the test was the trial of Peter von Hagenbach in 1484. Peter von Hagenbach was a soldier in the service of the the Holy Roman Emperor of the time, Charles the Bold. However, in that matter, Peter von Hagenbach was executed by the tribunal created out of the various victims of his crimes. The next recorded usage of the doctrine was the German Military Trials that took place after World War I. One of the most famous of these trials was the matter of Lieutenant Karl Neumann, who was a U-Boat Captain responsible for the sinking of the Hospital ship, the Dover Castle. Even though he frankly admitted to having sunk the ship, he stated that he had done so on the basis _____________ and as such, he could not be held liable for his actions. The Leipsic Supreme Court acquitted him, accepting the defense of X as a grounds to escape criminal liability One of the most noted uses of this defense was by the accused in the Nuremberg Trials, such that it is also called the Nuremberg Defense. However, it has been used both before and after the Nuremberg Trials. It was during these trials, under the London Charter of the International Military Tribunal which set them up, that the defense was no longer considered enough to escape punishment; merely enough to lessen punishment.

Robert Franklin Stroud, better known as the X, was a federal prisoner. In 1908,He was given 12 years for manslaughter in the Puget Sound Federal Penitentiary. After assaulting a hospital orderly in September 1912, he was transferred to the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, where he stabbed and killed a guard in the prison cafeteria. He was sentenced to death, but in 1920, President Woodrow Wilson commuted his sentence to life in prison without parole. While in Leavenworth, he found an injured sparrow in the prison yard and kept it, caring for it. Obtaining permission to have the birds, he switched to canaries, which he would sell for supplies. The warden, believing in progressive rehabilitation, furnished Stroud with cages, supplies and stationery for his aviary. Stroud would write two books, “Diseases of Canaries” and “Stroud’s Digest to the Diseases of Birds,” gaining respect for his abilities and observations in the bird field. When prison authorities discovered some of his bird equipment was being used to make alcohol, he was transferred to Y, where he spent the next 17 years. Despite his portrayal as a mild mannered and humane person by Burt Lancaster in the movie X(1962), he was often violent, had a fierce temper, and was difficult to control. X?

X (319-272 BC) was a Greek general of the Hellenistic era. He was king of the Greek tribe of Molossians, of the royal Aeacid house (from ca. 297 BC), and later he became King of Epirus (306-302, 297-272 BC) and Macedon (288-284, 273-272 BC). He was one of the strongest opponents of early Rome. He is the subject of one of Plutarch's Parallel Lives . While he was a mercurial and often restless leader, and not always a wise king, he was considered one of the greatest military commanders of his time. Plutarch records that Hannibal ranked X as either the greatest or the second greatest commander the world had seen (after Alexander the Great if the second version of the tradition is followed). X was also known to be very benevolent. As a general X‘s greatest political weaknesses were the failure to maintain focus and the failure to maintain a strong treasury at home (many of his soldiers were costly mercenaries). His name is famous for the phrase Y which refers to an exchange at the Battle of Asculum. The battle, though successful, cost him heavy losses, from which the term Y was coined. In response to congratulations for winning a costly victory over the Romans, he is reported to have said: "One more such victory will undo me!”

People killed at Munich in the Olympic Games in 1972

The Silver Spring monkeys were seventeen macaque monkeys living inside the Institute of Behavioral Research in Silver Spring, Maryland, who became what one writer called "the most famous lab animals in history." They came to public attention as a result of a bitter ten-year battle between scientists, animal advocates, politicians, and the courts over whether to use in the animals in research or release them to a sanctuary. Within the scientific community, the monkeys are known for their role in research that led to the discovery of neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to remap itself, regarded as one of the most exciting discoveries of the 20th century. The monkeys had been used as research subjects by Edward Taub, a psychologist, who had cut afferent ganglia that supplied sensation to the brain from their arms and legs, then used restraint, electric shock, and withholding of food to force them to use the limbs they could not feel. In the summer of 1981, Alex Pacheco of the animal-rights group X, founded a year earlier, began working undercover in the lab, and he alerted police to what was widely deemed to be the monkeys' unacceptable living conditions. Police raided the Institute and removed the monkeys, during the first such raid in the U.S. against an animal researcher. Taub was charged with 113 counts of animal cruelty and six of failing to provide adequate veterinary care. He was convicted on six misdemeanor counts, sending a chill through the animal research community, though the convictions were overturned on appeal. The National Institutes of Health initially judged that the laboratory was "grossly unsanitary," and suspended his funding, though this was also later reversed.

X (AD 37 – c. 100),also known as Titus Flavius X, was a first-century Jewish historian and apologist of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism. X's two most important works are The Jewish War (c. 75) and Antiquities of the Jews . The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Rome (66–70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of early Christianity. The works of X provide crucial information about the First Jewish-Roman War and are also important literary source material for understanding the context of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The X were an English-American theatrical family of the 19th century. Its most famous and infamous members were Edwin X, one of the leading actors of his day, and Y. The patriarch was Junius Brutus X, a London-born lawyer's son who eventually settled on a stage career, where he found success. Junius brutus was named for Marcus Junius Brutus, one of the lead assassins of Julius Caesar. He inculcated his sons with both a love for the stage and an anti-authoritarian streak, deliberately naming his youngest son after English rebel Z. He emigrated to America in 1821, settled in Harford County near Baltimore, built a still existing house in 1847 naming it "Tudor Hall", and started a family with his mistress. The most famous living member of this family is perhaps Cherie Blair who is a descendant of Junius’ brother Algernon. X?

The X is a basic element of military strategy which has been used, to some extent, in many wars, and is considered to be the consummate military maneuver, executed by Hannibal at the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC, over 2,200 years ago. This maneuver was also later effectively used by Khalid ibn al-Walid at the Battle of Walaja in 633 AD, Field Marshal Carl Gustav Rehnskiöld at the Battle of Fraustadt and by Daniel Morgan at the Battle of Cowpens over 1,100 years later. An earlier form of X was also described by the Chinese military theorist Sun Tzu in the 6th century BC, and possibly used at the Battle of Marathon in the 5th century BC.Hannibal's X at the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC is viewed by military historians as one of the greatest battlefield maneuvers in history, and is cited as the first successful use of the X to be recorded in detail. The flanks of the opponent are attacked simultaneously in a ______ motion after the opponent has advanced towards the center of an army which is responded by moving its outside forces to the enemy's flanks, in order to surround it. At the same time, a second layer of _______ attacks on the more extreme flanks, so as to prevent any attempts to reinforce the target unit. X?
