Fountain Pen
A fountain pen is a nib pen that, unlike its predecessor, the dip pen, contains an internal reservoir of liquid ink. The pen draws ink from the reservoir through a feed to the nib and deposits it on paper via a combination of gravity and capillary action. Filling the reservoir with ink may be achieved manually, via the use of a Pasteur pipette (eyedropper) or syringe, or via an internal filling mechanism which creates suction (for example, through a piston mechanism) to transfer ink directly through the nib into the reservoir

Boarding House
A boarding house is a house (frequently a family home) in which lodgers rent one or more rooms for one or more nights, and sometimes for extended periods of weeks, months, and years. The common parts of the house are maintained, and some services, such as laundry and cleaning, may be supplied. They normally provide "room and board," that is, at least some meals as well as accommodation. A "lodging house," also known in the United States

Hostage
A hostage is a person or entity[citation needed] which is held by one of two belligerent parties to the other or seized as security for the carrying out of an agreement, or as a preventive measure against war.[1] However, in contemporary usage, it means someone who is seized by a criminal abductor in order to compel another party such as a relative, employer, law enforcement, or government to act, or refrain from acting, in a particular way, often under threat of serious physical harm to the hostage(s) after expiration of an ultimatum. A person who seizes one or more hostages is known as a hostage-taker; if the hostages are present voluntarily, then the receiver is known as a host.TerrorismDefinitionsHistory IncidentsBy ideologyAnarchist Communist Conservative Left-wing Narcotics-driven Nationalist Right-wingReligiousBuddhist Christian (Mormon) Hindu Islamic Jewish SikhSpecial-interest / Single-issueAnti-abortion
