Question 437

In the 17th century, this structure formed the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement. In the 1640s basic picket and plank fences denoted plots and residences in the colony. Later, on behalf of the Dutch West India Company, construction of a stronger stockade was done. A strengthened 12-foot (4 m) structure of timber and earth, fortified by palisades, was created by 1653 . It was created, and strengthened over time, as a defense against attack from various native tribes. In 1685 surveyors laid out the present structure along the lines of the original stockade. What structure which has also "crashed" many times?

Questoin 435

Finally something to offer from my side:

Roland Berrill, an Australian barrister and Dr. Lancelot Ware, a British scientist and lawyer, founded X in the UK in 1946. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people. It was to be free from all social distinctions (racial, religious, etc.), represented by the name of the organization, which comprises two Latin words which together means mind-table, indicating that it is a round-table society of minds. X also was to be a non-political organization, reflected in its constitution: "X encompasses members representing many points of view. Consequently,
X as an organization shall not express an opinion as being that of X, take any political action other than the publication of the results of its investigations, or have any ideological, philosophical, political, or religious affiliations."
Logo of X:
Id X.
