    U.S. News & World Report

    U.S. News & World Report is an American news magazine published from Washington, D.C. Along with Time and Newsweek it was for many years a leading news weekly, focusing more than its counterparts on political, economic, health and education stories. In recent years, it has become particularly known for its ranking system and annual reports on American colleges, graduate schools and hospitals. Since June 2008, the magazine has gradually reduced its publication frequency three times, switching first from weekly to biweekly, then going monthly in November 2008. In November 2010, it was reported that U.S News & World Report would be switched to an online-only format, effective after it published its December issue; it will still publish special issues in print on colleges, hospitals, and personal finance. United States News was founded in 1933 by David Lawrence (1888–1973), who also started World Report in 1946. The two magazines initially covered national and international news separately, but Lawrence merged them into U.S.News & World Report in 1948 and subsequently sold the magazine to his employees. In 1984, it was purchased by Mortimer Zuckerman, who is also the owner of the New

    Forbes list of billionaires

    Forbes Magazine's list of the world's 100 wealthiest people as of February 11, 2008 is based on each person's total net worth. The total net worth is an estimate measured in United States dollars, based on the closing stock prices of the stock exchanges on which each person's company is listed, and exchange rates on February 11, 2008. Stock prices are defined as shares of ownership in a corporation, and exchange rates are defined as how much one currency is worth in terms of another. This list only represents each person's valuation on a single day due to daily fluctuations among exchange rates and stock valuations. The list does not include heads of state whose wealth is tied to their position (see list of heads of government and state by net worth). The following list is Forbes ranking of the world's richest billionaires on February 11, 2008, and does not reflect changes since that date. The top three countries with the most billionaires are: United States with over 400, Russia with 87, and India and Germany with 56 each.

    NFL Top 100

    The NFL Top 100 is an annual list that features the greatest one hundred players in the National Football League (NFL), as chosen by fellow NFL players. The rankings are based on an off-season poll organized by the NFL, whereby players vote on their peers based on the performance of the previous season and their belief of how the player will perform in the coming season. Prior to the start of the 2011 NFL season, NFL players ranked the 2010 AP NFL Most Valuable Player—New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady—as the number 1 player for the coming season. Of the 32 teams in the NFL, only the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills did not have players ranked on the list. The Green Bay Packers had the most players on the list with 7. The position with the most players on the 2011 list is wide receiver, with 18. The highest ranked 2010 rookie player on the 2011 list, at number 51, was the 2010 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year—Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The NFL Network released the rankings in 10-player blocks over a number of weeks during the off-season, starting with the announcement of the 100th to 91st ranked players on April 30, 2011, and culminating with the top 10

    TIME's List of the 100 Best Novels

    • Ranked by: Time
    Time's List of the 100 Best Novels, is an unranked list of the 100 best novels—and ten best graphic novels—published in the English language between 1923 and 2005. The list was compiled by Time critics Lev Grossman and Richard Lacayo. The list only includes works between 1923 (when Time was first published) and 2005 (when the list was compiled). As a result, notable books such as Ulysses by James Joyce—published before 1923—were ineligible for inclusion. Watchmen (1986) by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons appears on both the 100 Best Novels and 10 Best Graphic Novels lists, giving the combined lists 109 entries.

    The Movie List: the first 9200

    • Ranked by: Brad Bourland
    Brad Bourland of Austin, Texas has spent much of the last ten years compiling his list of the 10,000 best movies of the 20th century. The list was sub-finalized on April 25, 2010 at a total of 9,200 films. A couple caveats: no silents, animations, made-for-TV, documentaries or foreign-language films are on his list and the last 150 “so bad that they’re fascinating” says Bourland. His intention is to fill out the remaining 800 with input from readers of the list. At that point he'll re-publish and date a final list. That said, I've sub-titled this list as the first 9200 and will reserve The Movie List as the title of the final 10,000.

    20th Century's Greatest Hits: 100 English-Language Books of Fiction

    • Ranked by: Larry McCaffery
    The 20th Century’s Greatest Hits: 100 English-Language Books of Fiction is a popular "best of" list compiled by Larry McCaffery largely in response to Modern Library 100 Best Novels list (1999), which McCaffery saw as being out of touch with 20th-century fiction. McCaffery writes that he sees his list "as a means of sharing with readers my own views about what books are going to be read 100 or 1000 years from now". His list includes many books not included in the Modern Library list, including five of his top ten, Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow, Robert Coover's The Public Burning, Samuel Beckett’s Trilogy (Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable), Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans, and William S. Burrough's The Nova Trilogy. Topping the list is Vladimir Nabokov's 1962 novel Pale Fire, which McCaffery calls "The most audaciously conceived novel of the century". Not counting the tetralogies of Rikki Ducornet (#35) and Gene Wolfe (#78), the most cited author is James Joyce, whose four works, Ulysses (#2), Finnegans Wake (#10), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (#21), and Dubliners (#63) all made the list.

    America's Most Endangered Places

    Each year since 1987, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has released a list of places they consider the most endangered in America. The number of sites included on the list has varied, with the most recent lists settling on 11. The name of the list has varied from "America's Most Endangered Places" to "America's Most Endangered Historic Places" to "America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places." While many of the locations listed by the Trust have been preserved—with there being some argument about how important the Trust's listing has actually been to their preservation—there have been notable losses, such as 2 Columbus Circle, which underwent significant renovations, and the original Guthrie Theater, demolition of which was completed in early 2007.

    The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

    "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" is a 2003 special issue of American magazine Rolling Stone, and a related book published in 2005. The lists presented were compiled based on votes from selected rock musicians, critics, and industry figures, and predominantly feature British and American music from the 1960s and 1970s. From 2007 onwards, the magazine published similarly titled lists in other countries around the world. In 2012, Rolling Stone published a revised edition of the list drawing on the original and a later survey of albums in the 2000s. It was made available in "bookazine" format on newsstands in the US from April 27 to July 25. The first version of the list, published as a magazine in November 2003, was based on the votes of 273 rock musicians, critics, and industry figures, each of whom submitted a weighted list of 50 albums. The accounting firm Ernst & Young devised a point system to weigh votes for 1,600 submitted titles. The list includes a few compilations, and "greatest hits" collections.

    Fortune Global 500

    • Ranked by: Fortune
    The Fortune Global 500, also known as Global 500, is an annual ranking of the top 500 corporations worldwide as measured by revenue. The list is compiled and published annually by Fortune magazine. Until 1989 it listed only non-US industrial corporations under the title "International 500", while the Fortune 500 contained and still contains exclusively US corporations. In 1990, US companies were added to compile a truly global list of top industrial corporations as ranked by sales. Since 1995, the list has had its current form, listing also top financial corporations and service providers by revenue. From 2001 to 2011, there has been significant change in the geographical distribution of the companies in the Global 500 rankings. The number of North American based companies have reduced from 215 in 2001 to 146 in 2011, whereas the contribution of Asian based companies have increased rapidly from 116 in 2001 to 172 in 2011. The share of European based companies have increased marginally from 158 to 161 over the decade. The rankings, which have been released by the magazine at its website, appear in the July 23, 2012, issue of the magazine. The following is the list of top 10

Another 40 percent of the score came from equal parts of four measures used by the Times: the percentage of international faculty, the percentage of international students, citations per faculty member (using ISI data), and the ratio of faculty to students. The final 10 percent came from library holdings (number of volumes).

    Gallup's most admired man and woman poll

    Gallup’s most admired man and woman poll is an annual poll that Gallup has conducted at the end of virtually every single year since 1948. Americans are asked, without prompting, to say what man and woman "living today in any part of the world, do [they] admire most?" The result is published as a top ten list. Most years the most admired man is the sitting President of the United States and the most admired woman is or has been the First Lady of the United States. Through 2010, sitting U.S. presidents have captured the top spot for men in 52 out of 64 years. Through 2011, evangelist Billy Graham has had 55 appearances in the top 10, the most of anyone with 8 second place finishes. The second most is Ronald Reagan with 31, and Jimmy Carter and Pope John Paul II are tied for third with 27. Among women, the poll has shown Eleanor Roosevelt, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Hillary Rodham Clinton as U.S. First Ladies whose popularity extends beyond their time in the White House.

    100 Greatest Marvels of All Time

    The 100 Greatest Marvels of All Time was a series of trade paperbacks published in 2001 by Marvel Comics. Earlier in the year, the publisher had held a poll asking readers to vote on their favorite issues of Marvel comic book series.

    America's Safest and Most Dangerous Cities

    America's Safest and Most Dangerous Cities is a publication issued annually by CQ Press, a division of Congressional Quarterly Inc., that ranks American cities on the basis of safety and crime. According to the publisher, the rankings are based upon statistics submitted by cities to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which are then published by the FBI online, as part of the Bureau's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program.

From 1995 through 2006, City Crime Rankings was published by Lawrence, Kansas-based Morgan Quitno Press. The publisher was acquired in June 2007 by CQ Press The 14th annual edition of City Crime Rankings was published in November 2007, and contains over 100 tables and figures detailing crime trends in cities and metropolitan areas across America.

    QS World University Rankings

    • Ranked by: Quacquarelli Symonds
    The QS World University Rankings is a ranking of the world’s top 700 universities by Quacquarelli Symonds using a method that has published annually since 2004. The QS rankings were originally published in publication with Times Higher Education from 2004 to 2009 as the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings. In 2010, Times Higher Education and QS ended their collaboration. QS assumed sole publication of the existing methodology, while Times Higher Education created a new ranking methodology with Thomson Reuters, published as Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The QS World University Rankings is regarded to be one of the three most influential and widely observed international university rankings, along with the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities. The need for an international ranking of universities was highlighted in December 2003 in Richard Lambert’s review of university-industry collaboration in Britain for HM Treasury, the finance ministry of the United Kingdom. Amongst its recommendations were world university rankings, which Lambert said would help the UK to gauge the global standing of

    Triple J Hottest 100

    • Ranked by: Triple J
    The Triple J Hottest 100 is an annual music poll, based on the votes of national Australian radio station Triple J listeners, in order to determine their favourite song of the year. Voting is conducted by the internet and begins roughly two weeks prior to the new year for the previous year's songs. The 100 most popular songs are then counted down on Australia Day weekend – usually Australia Day itself. The poll had been conducted by DoubleJay in Sydney starting in the 1980s, before Triple J became a national broadcaster. It was originally called the Hot 100 and ran on New Year's Day. The Brisbane independent radio Station 4ZZZ had run a survey under the same name and on the same day since 1977 and owned the rights to the name Hot 100. Triple J was legally required to change the name of its annual survey. The poll attracts over half a million votes every year (increasing constantly from 500,000 in 2004 to 1.26 million in 2011). Triple J and other sources claims that it is the world's largest music poll. It began as a write-in poll; it then progressed to phone in, then they started listing the songs for the year so it could be done automatically via SMS and web voting. In 2003, it

    The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time

    "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" was the cover story of a special issue of Rolling Stone, issue number 963, published December 9, 2004, a year after the magazine published its list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". In May 2010, Rolling Stone compiled an updated list which was published in a special issue and in digital form for iPod and iPad applications. The list differs only slightly from the 2004 version, with all of the new additions being songs from the 2000s with the exceptions of "Juicy" by The Notorious B.I.G. and "Big Pimpin'" by Jay-Z, which were released in 1994 and 1999, respectively. While a total of 26 new songs were added, the entire top 25 remained unchanged, and although certain songs had changed their rank in the top 100, the only new entry was Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" at number 100. The number of songs from each decade in this updated version is as follows: U2 and Jay-Z both have two songs added to the list, however Jay-Z is also featured in an additional two other new songs on the list, "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé, and "Umbrella" by Rihanna. The Crystals are the only artists to have had two songs dropped from the list.

    Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time, 1998

    The Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time was a music poll conducted in August 1998 amongst listeners of Australian youth radio network Triple J. Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" collected the highest number of votes to claim the top position. Voters could submit a list of up to ten different songs as well as nominating one of these as their "all-time" favourite song. It was the fourth such poll organised by Triple J, following similar polls in 1989, 1990 and 1991. Initially, all songs were eligible for the annual Triple J Hottest 100. However, from 1993 onward (after having no list in 1992), only songs released in the previous year were permitted. Thus, the Hottest 100 of All Time is conducted via a separate vote, held irregularly to reflect listeners' favourite songs across all eras.

The top 30 of this selection was used to create the Nature's Best CD and the rest of the list for follow up compilations. A similar list was made in Australia of the top 30 Australian songs.

The top 30 songs were released on the Nature's Best CD. Some artists feature prominently in the list. These include: Music journalist Paul Sergant notes that the list is highly skewed towards the 1980s and 90s to the detriment of earlier music, with notable omissions including Howard Morrison, Dinah Lee, and Ray Columbus & the Invaders.. Some songs may also be claimed as both New Zealand and Australian. A list compiled by APRA at the same time of top 30 Australian songs also included Crowded House's 'Don't Dream It's Over' (at number 7).

    • Ranked by: Channel 4
    The British television station Channel 4 sponsored a poll in 2003 to find the 100 Worst Britons We Love to Hate and aired the results in an evening programme hosted by comedian Jimmy Carr. The show was a response to the BBC series 100 Greatest Britons, although it was less serious in nature and had fewer participants responding (100,000 compared to 1 million). The programme was a countdown from number 100 to number 1, and featured TV clips of the Britons in question, together with various commentators suggesting why they had made the list. Then-Prime Minister Tony Blair was at number 1. The results reflected the opinions of those who voted on the Channel 4 website. Those people who also appeared on the 100 Greatest Britons list compiled by the BBC are marked with an asterisk (*) along with their position on that list.

The A-list is part of a larger guide called The Hot List that has become an industry-standard guide in Hollywood. James Ulmer has also developed a Hot List of directors. Developed in 1997 by entertainment journalist James Ulmer, the Ulmer Scale is a 100-point rating that aims to quantify a star's value to a film production. The scale predicts value in terms of getting a movie financed and in production based solely on an actor's attachment to the project; score is based on their historical box office success, versatility, professional demeanor, and ability and willingness to travel and promote movies. Ulmer's Top 10 list in 2009 (in order of 'bankable' value): The top 10 list in 2006 included: In popular usage outside the film industry, an "A-list celebrity" simply refers to any person with an admired or desirable social status.

    Top 100 Public Intellectuals Poll

    The Top 100 Public Intellectuals Poll was conducted in November 2005 and June 2008 by Prospect Magazine (UK) and Foreign Policy (US) on the basis of responding readers' ballot. The objective was to determine the 100 most important public intellectuals who are still alive and active in public life. The following appeared on the 2008 list. Prospect itself placed an editorial explaining its surprise that the top 10 in the 2008 list were from Muslim background, and noted the sudden surge in votes in their favor after Zaman internationally published an article notifying the Gulen community of the ongoing poll. The following appeared on the original 2005 list. According to location of birth, roughly 40% came from the United States and Canada, 25% from Europe, and 22% from the Middle and Far East. The other locations received less than 5%—Latin America with 4 and Africa and Australia with 3. Only 8% are women. As happens with many free Internet polls, this one may have been affected by organized voting campaigns and biases introduced by the nationality and language of the organizer. Almost all of the African votes were cast in Nigeria.

    European Top 100 Albums

    The European Top 100 Albums chart was the European adaptation of the Billboard 200 albums chart. It ran from March, 1984 until December, 2010. The European Top 100 Albums, commonly referred to as Eurochart Top 100 Albums, showcased the sales of an act in 19 European countries based on IFPI data. The European Top 100 combined album sales (both retail and digital) of new and older albums. The methodology was different from The U.S. Billboard 200, where albums would only be allowed to chart if they weren't 18 months old. If an album older than 18 months had enough sales to enter the 200 chart after having already dropped out of the 100th position, it would chart on the The U.S. Billboard Catalog Albums. Later Billboard reviewed the criteria and decided the older albums would also be allowed to chart in the 200, as it should show what's being sold. The chart update and issue dating followed the rules of the Billboard 200: sales tracking week began on Monday and ended on Sunday. A new chart was published the following Thursday with an issue date of the following Saturday. The first Eurochart number one album was Thriller by Michael Jackson. The final chart was published on December 11,

    Merriam-Webster's Words of the Year

    Merriam-Webster's Words of the Year, a list published annually by the American dictionary-publishing company Merriam-Webster, features the ten words of the year from the English language. This list started in 2003, and is published at the end of each year. At first, Merriam-Webster determined its contents by analyzing page hits and popular searches on its website. Since 2006, the list has been determined by an online poll and by suggestions from visitors to the site. As of 2008, only two of Merriam-Webster's Words of the Year were already dictionary entries at the time they earned their status (democracy in 2003 and integrity in 2005). 2004's Top Word, blog, was added to dictionaries later. The words for 2006 and 2007, truthiness and w00t, respectively, have not made it to the traditional Merriam-Webster printed dictionary as of 2008. The Words of the Year usually reflect events that happened during the years the lists were published. For example, the Word of the Year for 2005, integrity, showed that the general public had an immense interest in defining this word amid ethics scandals in the United States government, corporations, and sports.

It appeared in the May 4–10, 2002 issue of the magazine, which was the second in a series of special issues commemorating TV Guide's 50th year (the others were "TV We'll Always Remember", "50 Greatest Covers", "50 Worst TV Shows of All Time", "50 Greatest Cartoon Characters" and "50 Sexiest Stars").

    Wisden Cricketers of the Year

    Wisden Cricketers of the Year

    The Wisden Cricketers of the Year are cricketers selected for the honour by the annual publication Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, based primarily on their "influence on the previous English season". The award began in 1889 with the naming of "Six Great Bowlers of the Year", and continued with the naming of "Nine Great Batsmen of the Year" in 1890 and "Five Great Wicket-Keepers" in 1891. Since 1897, with a few notable exceptions, the annual award has recognised five players of the year. No players were named in 1916 or 1917, as the First World War prevented any first-class cricket being played in England, while in 1918 and 1919 the recipients were five schoolboy cricketers. From 1941 to 1946, the Second World War caused the same issue and no players were named. Three players have been sole recipients: W. G. Grace (1896), Plum Warner (1921) and Jack Hobbs (1926). The latter two selections are the only exceptions to the rule that a player may receive the award only once. Hobbs was first recognised in 1909, but was selected a second time in 1926 to honour his breaking W. G. Grace's record of 126 first-class hundreds; Warner was first honoured in 1904, but received a second award in 1921

    The 30 Most Powerful Women in America

    • Ranked by: Ladies' Home Journal
    In 2001 Ladies Home Journal created a list of the 30 most powerful women in the United States at the turn of the millennium. Editor Sarah Mahoney described the difficulty of creating such a list, noting that her staff wondered "How on earth could you compare, for example, the power of a Fortune 500 CEO with a teenage pop star?" To try to solve this problem, a panel of judges gave each women a score out of 100 on each of the following criteria: cultural clout; financial impact; visibility; achievement; power to influence; intellectual impact; political know-how; and staying power. The scores were given a weighted averaged for an overall power index. The list generated controversy in the media causing Marianne Jennings to write: The Dallas Morning News noted that few could argue that Oprah Winfrey was the most powerful woman in America, but noted that the 29 names that followed Winfrey generated much debate. Townhall.com complained about the ranking of the first lady noting "Mrs. Bush, surprisingly, is way down the list at 26th, behind even the lip-synching Britney Spears, who ranks 9th." Despite such criticism, qualifying for the list was a big enough honor that it became

    Forbes list of billionaires

    This list of billionaires is based on an annual ranking of the world's wealthiest people compiled and published by Forbes magazine on March 9, 2006. Forbes is an American national business magazine. There are 793 billionaires on Forbes list with 102 newcomers, from 49 countries. More than half of the billionaires are from the United States and Germany. 2006 saw an increase in billionaires from Russia, India, and Brazil mainly due to economic growth in these countries. The combined net worth of the list is US$2.6 trillion, an 18% increase from 2005. The total net worth is an estimate measured in United States dollars, based on the closing stock prices of the stock exchanges on which each person's company is listed on, and exchange rates on February 9, 2006. Stock prices are defined as shares of ownership in a corporation, and exchange rates are defined as how much one currency is worth in terms of another. This list only represents each person's valuation on a single day due to daily fluctuations among exchange rates and stock valuations. The following list is the ranking of the world's richest billionaires on March 9, 2006, and does not reflect changes since that date.

    FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives

    FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives

    The FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives is a most wanted list maintained by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The list arose from a conversation held in late 1949 between J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, and William Kinsey Hutchinson, International News Service (the predecessor of the United Press International) Editor-in-Chief, who were discussing ways to promote capture of the FBI's "toughest guys". This discussion turned into a published article, which received so much positive publicity that on March 14, 1950, the FBI officially announced the list to increase law enforcement's ability to capture dangerous fugitives. Individuals are generally only removed from the list if the fugitive is captured, dies, or if the charges against them are dropped; they are then replaced by a new entry selected by the FBI. In six cases, the FBI removed individuals from the list after deciding that they were no longer a "particularly dangerous menace to society". Víctor Manuel Gerena, added to the list in 1984, has been on the list longer than anyone, at 28 years. Billie Austin Bryant spent the shortest amount of time on the list, being listed for two hours in 1969. Fidel

    New York Times Best Seller list

    • Ranked by: The New York Times
    The New York Times Best Seller list is widely considered the preeminent list of best-selling books in the United States. It is published weekly in The New York Times Book Review magazine, which is published in the Sunday edition of The New York Times and as a stand-alone publication. The best-seller list has been ongoing since April 9, 1942. The list is composed by the editors of the "News Surveys" department, not by The New York Times Book Review department, where it is published. It is based on weekly sales reports obtained from selected samples of independent and chain bookstores and wholesalers throughout the United States. The sales figures are widely believed to represent books that have actually been sold at retail, rather than wholesale, as the Times surveys booksellers in an attempt to better reflect what is purchased by individual buyers. Some books are flagged with a dagger indicating that a significant number of bulk orders had been received by retail bookstores. The exact methodology used in creating the list is classified as a trade secret.

It incorporates the use of various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter) and e-readers that allow for the quoting and uploading of passages and notes for discussion, among other features. The book club was announced June 1, 2012. Critics at the time pointed out that her online audience was not as large as it was previously with network television, and the new club would be a test if she still had the "The Oprah Effect" with the reading public to create hits as before.

    • Ranked by: World Monuments Fund
    The World Monuments Watch is a flagship advocacy program of the New York-based private non-profit organization World Monuments Fund (WMF) that calls international attention to cultural heritage around the world that is threatened by neglect, vandalism, conflict, or disaster. Every two years, it publishes a select list known as the Watch List of Endangered Sites that are in urgent need of preservation funding and protection. The sites are nominated by governments, conservation professionals, site caretakers, non-government organizations (NGOs), concerned individuals, and others working in the field. An independent panel of international experts then select 100 candidates from these entries to be part of the Watch List, based on the significance of the sites, the urgency of the threat, and the viability of both advocacy and conservation solutions. For the succeeding two-year period until a new Watch List is published, these 100 sites can avail grants and funds from the WMF, as well as from other foundations, private donors, and corporations by capitalizing on the publicity and attention gained from the inclusion on the Watch List.

    Billboard 200

    • Ranked by: Billboard
    The Billboard 200 is a ranking of the 200 highest-selling music albums and EPs in the United States, published weekly by Billboard magazine. It is frequently used to convey the popularity of an artist or groups of artists. Often, a recording act will be remembered by its "number ones", those of their albums that outsold all others during at least one week. The chart is based solely on sales (both at retail and digitally) of albums in the United States. The sales tracking week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. A new chart is published the following Thursday with an issue date of the Saturday of the following week. Normally new products are released to the American market on Tuesdays. Digital downloads are included in Billboard 200 tabulation, as long as the entire album is purchased as a whole. Albums that are not licensed for retail sale in the United States (yet purchased in the U.S. as imports) are not eligible to chart. A long-standing policy which made titles that are sold exclusively by specific retail outlets (such as Wal-Mart and Starbucks) ineligible for charting, was reversed on November 7, 2007, and took effect in the issue dated November 17.

    FBI Most Wanted Terrorists

    FBI Most Wanted Terrorists

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Most Wanted Terrorists is a list of persons who have been indicted (formally accused) by sitting Federal grand juries in the United States district courts, for alleged crimes of terrorism. The initial list was formed in late 2001 in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and contained the names of 22 persons alleged to be terrorists by U.S. authorities. It was the second major "wanted" list following the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. It now serves as a companion to that earlier list, which in years past, had listed several major terrorist fugitives. In response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, former President Bush released to the public this initial list on October 10, 2001 of the FBI's top 22 Most Wanted Terrorists. The 22 persons chosen by the FBI to be profiled on the list had all been earlier indicted for acts of terrorism between the years 1985 and 1998. None of the 22 had been captured by American or other authorities as of October 2001. Of the 22, only Osama bin Laden was by then already listed on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

    The 50 Greatest Players in National Basketball Association History (also referred to as NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team or NBA's Top 50) were chosen in 1996 to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the National Basketball Association (NBA). These fifty players were selected through a vote by a panel of media members, former players and coaches, and current and former general managers. In addition, the top ten head coaches and top ten single-season teams in NBA history were selected by media members as part of the celebration. The fifty players had to have played at least a portion of their careers in the NBA and were selected irrespective of position played. The list was announced by NBA commissioner David Stern on October 29, 1996, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, the former site of the Commodore Hotel, where the original NBA charter was signed on June 6, 1946. The announcement marked the beginning of a season-long celebration of the league's anniversary. Forty-seven of the fifty players were later assembled in Cleveland, Ohio, during the halftime ceremony of the 1997 All-Star Game. Three players were absent: Pete Maravich, who had died in 1988, at

    Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century is a compilation of the 20th century's 100 most influential people, published in Time magazine in 1999. The idea for such a list started on February 1, 1998, with a debate at a symposium in Ha Noi, Vietnam. The panel participants were former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, former New York governor Mario Cuomo, then–Stanford Provost Dr. Condoleezza Rice, publisher Irving Kristol, and Time managing editor Walter Isaacson. In a separate issue on December 31, 1999, Time recognized Albert Einstein as the Person of the Century. The list contains a total of 100 people, with 20 each in five broad categories: Leaders & Revolutionaries, Scientists & Thinkers, Builders & Titans, Artists & Entertainers, and Heroes & Icons. Of the 100 chosen, Albert Einstein was chosen the Person of the Century, on the grounds that he was the preeminent scientist in a century dominated by science. The editors of Time believed the 20th century "will be remembered foremost for its science and technology", and Einstein "serves as a symbol of all the scientists—such as Heisenberg, Bohr, Richard Feynman, ...who built upon his

    America's Favorite Architecture

    America's Favorite Architecture is a list of buildings and other structures identified as the most popular works of architecture in the United States. In 2006 and 2007, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) sponsored research to identify the most popular works of architecture in the United States. Harris Interactive conducted the study by first polling a sample of the AIA membership and later polling a sample of the public. In the first phase of the study, 2,448 AIA members were interviewed and asked to identify their "favorite" structures. Each was asked to name up to 20 structures in each of 15 defined categories. The 248 structures that were named by at least six of the AIA members were then included in a list of structures to be included in the next phase, a survey of the general public. The survey of the public involved a total of 2,214 people, each of whom rated many photographs of buildings and other structures drawn from the list of 248 structures that had been created by polling the architects. The public's preferences were ranked using a "likeability" scale developed for the study. As part of the commemoration of the organization's 150th anniversary in 2007, the AIA

    Billboard Hot 100 50th Anniversary Charts

    The Billboard Hot 100 50 Year Anniversary Charts are historical charts from the Hot 100's first 50 years, August 1958 through July 2008. "Alfred Music" publishing house, saluted the 50th, by publishing the "Hot 100 50th Anniversary Songbook." The songs in the "50th Anniversary" charts had to appear on the Hot 100 in order to be counted. This may create some confusion (for example: many great country artists and songs are not on the "50th Anniversary" chart because, while very popular on the country charts they didn't cross over to the Hot 100). Also, keep in mind the Hot 100 started in August 1958 so any prior songs are not listed, including some popular Elvis Presley songs. The "50th Anniversary" chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100. The artist chart utilizes the same methodology, with weighted points applied to all titles charted by each artist during that 50-year span. They are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at number one earning the greatest value and weeks at number one hundred earning the least. Hot 100's 50th Anniversary award relative points for every week that a title spent on the chart, regardless of rank. For the Hot

    National Register of Big Trees

    The National Register of Big Trees is a list of the largest recorded living specimens of each tree variety found in the continental United States. A tree on this list is called a National Champion Tree. This list has been maintained since 1940 by American Forests, a nonprofit conservation organization.

Little Jr.'s Checklist of United States Trees (Native and Naturalized), published in 1979 as Agricultural Handbook 541 by the United States Department of Agriculture. At present 747 native and 79 naturalized trees are eligible, for a total of 826 eligible species and varieties. American Forests uses the following formula to calculate a point score for each tree so that they may be compared to others: The current list of National Champion Trees is available online. In addition to the national list, several states, counties, and cities maintain their own list of local Champion Trees.

All of the top 10 were dead by the year of broadcast. The poll resulted in candidates including Guy Fawkes, who was executed for trying to blow up the Parliament of England; Oliver Cromwell who created a republican England; Richard III, suspected of murdering his nephews; James Connolly, an Irish nationalist and socialist who was executed by the Crown in 1916; and a surprisingly high ranking of 17th for the former Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em star Michael Crawford. In addition to the Britons, some notable non-British entrants were listed, including two Irish nationals, the philanthropic musicians Bono and Bob Geldof. Furthermore, many candidates were from an era in which Britishness did not exist. The top 19 entries were people of English origin (though Sir Ernest Shackleton and Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington,

    Fortune 500

    • Ranked by: Fortune
    The Fortune 500 is an annual list compiled and published by Fortune magazine that ranks the top 500 U.S. closely held and public corporations as ranked by their gross revenue after adjustments made by Fortune to exclude the impact of excise taxes companies incur. The list includes publicly and privately held companies for which revenues are publicly available. The first Fortune 500 list was published in 1955. Wal-Mart was the largest company on the list in 2007 and 2008. ExxonMobil was in second place in 2007 and 2008, but overtook Wal-Mart in 2009. Wal-Mart once again regained the top spot in 2010. The revenue and profit numbers are for the year previous to the named year: therefore the 2010 list ranks companies by 2009 revenues. Although the Fortune 500 list is the most familiar one, similar gross revenue lists of the top firms range from the highest ranking Fortune 100 including the top one hundred to the broader ranking Fortune 1000 that includes the top thousand firms. While the membership on the smaller lists are somewhat stable, the ranking on the lists may change over time, depending upon revenues and often, because of mergers among firms already listed.

    National Film Registry

    National Film Registry

    • Ranked by: National Film Preservation Board
    The National Film Registry is the United States National Film Preservation Board's selection of films for preservation in the Library of Congress. The Board, established by the National Film Preservation Act of 1988, was reauthorized by acts of Congress in 1992, 1996, 2005, and again in October 2008. The 1996 law also created the non-profit National Film Preservation Foundation which, although affiliated with the National Film Preservation Board, raises money from the private sector. The National Film Registry names to its list up to 25 "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films" each year, showcasing the range and diversity of American film heritage to increase awareness for its preservation. However, inclusion on the list is not a guarantee of actual preservation. To be eligible for inclusion, a film must be at least ten years old. For the first selection in 1989, the public nominated almost 1,000 films for consideration. Members of the National Film Preservation Board then developed individual ballots of possible films for inclusion. The ballots were tabulated into a list of 25 films which was then modified by Librarian of Congress James H. Billington and his

    UK Albums Chart

    The UK Albums Chart is a list of albums ranked by physical and digital sales in the United Kingdom. It is compiled every week by Official Charts Company and broadcast on a Sunday on BBC Radio 1 (Top 40), and published in Music Week magazine (Top 75) and on the OCC website (Top 100). To qualify for the UK albums chart the album must be the correct length and price. It must be more than 3 tracks or 20 minutes long and not be classed as a budget album. A budget album costs between £0.50 and £3.75. Additionally, various artist compilations - which until January 1989 were included in the main album listing - are now listed separately in a compilations chart. Full details of the rules can be found on the Official Charts Company website. Though album sales tend to produce more revenue and, over time, act as a greater measure of an artist's success, this chart receives less media attention than the UK Singles Chart, because overall sales of an album are more important than its peak position. Indeed, in recent years, the album chart has been in good health despite fears that music innovations such as MP3 players would threaten the traditional album. 2005 even saw a record number of artist

    Billboard Hot 100

    • Ranked by: Billboard
    The Billboard Hot 100 is the United States music industry standard singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine. Chart rankings are based on radio play and sales; the tracking-week for sales begins on Monday and ends on Sunday, while the radio play tracking-week runs from Wednesday to Tuesday. A new chart is compiled and officially released to the public by Billboard on Thursday. Each chart is dated with the "week-ending" date of the Saturday two weeks after. Example: The first number one song of the Hot 100 was "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson on August 4, 1958. As of the issue for the week ending October 27, 2012, the Hot 100 has had 1,019 different number-one hits. Its current number-one is "One More Night" by Maroon 5. What has always been known as the Hot 100 had existed for nearly fifteen years as numerous charts, tracking and ranking the most popular singles of the day in several areas. During the 1940s and 1950s, popular singles were ranked in three significant charts: Although officially all three charts had equal "weight" in terms of their importance, many chart historians refer to the Best Sellers In Stores chart when referencing a song’s performance

    Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time, 2009

    The Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time was a music poll conducted in 2009 amongst listeners of Australian youth radio network Triple J. Over half a million votes were compiled, with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" collecting the highest number of votes. Voters could submit a list of up to ten different songs as well as nominating one of these as their "all-time" favourite song. It was the fifth such poll organised by Triple J, following similar polls in 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1998. Initially, all songs were eligible for the annual Triple J Hottest 100. However, from 1993 onward (after having no list in 1992), only songs released in the previous year were permitted. Thus, the Hottest 100 of All Time is conducted via a separate vote, held irregularly to reflect listeners' favourite songs across all eras. The 2009 list was designed to reflect the twentieth anniversary of the Hottest 100's inception. The Triple J Hottest 100 of all time was broadcasted over two nights on ABC TV's music show Rage. However, certain songs were omitted from the broadcast due to the fact that they were never made into music videos. Five Tracks Four Tracks Three Tracks Two Tracks Triple J released a

    UK Pre-Order Top 100 Albums

    UK Pre-Order Top 100 Albums, is a chart in the United Kingdom that charts unreleased albums based on pre-release airplay and preorders. It often comes under major controversy, due to the fact that some radio stations do not play yet unreleased songs based on popularity. An example of this is Hilary Duff's single With Love, according to airplay the song reached #2 in the UK, when on release the sinlge actually only reached #29. The most recent senario was with JoJo's single Anything. Airplay put the single at #5, but the sigle only hit #21. The future of the chart is not yet known, record labels have called for its end for a long time.

    WHO's ranking of health care systems

    • Ranked by: World Health Organization
    The World Health Organization (WHO) ranked the health systems of its 191 member states in its World Health Report 2000. It provided a framework and measurement approach to examine and compare aspects of health systems around the world. It developed a series of performance indicators to assess the overall level and distribution of health in the populations, and the responsiveness and financing of health care services. It was the organization's first ever analysis of the world's health systems. The WHO abandoned ranking processes due to academic criticism regarding the methodology and validity of rankings. Data from 2000 was used in the report. The rankings are based on an index of five factors: The WHO rankings have been subject to much criticism concerning their methodology, scientificity, and usefulness. Dr Philip Musgrove wrote that the rankings are meaningless because they oversimplify: "numbers confer a spurious precision". Journalist John Stossel notes that the use of life expectancy figures is misleading and the life expectancy in the United States is held down by homicides, accidents, poor diet, and lack of exercise. When controlled for these facts, Stossel claims that
