TBQ –361

1) One way authors can protect themselves from libel suits is to say that a character has a _______    _______.  No male is going to come forward and say, ‘That character with a very _______    _______, that’s me!’ Fill in the blanks. What’s this rule known as? (5, 5)

2) Oyu Tolgoi, or Turquoise Hill, is the world’s largest mining exploration project – it is even bigger than Florida. When development of this Copper-Gold mine is finished in a year or two, its output will account for more than 30 per cent of this country’s economy. Where is this located?

3) Who is a posturbator in internet jargon?

4) Peter Rehra is a vehicle assembled locally in just Rs 10,000, and is equally popular in both villages and cities. If in rural areas a motor pump used for drawing well water is used as an engine, then in cities an old Bajaj scooter engine gives it the necessary power to overtake you. Why is it called *Peter* Rehra?

5) Identify this organization that’s behind a huge infrastructure project.

6) Which company, founded by, Barry Sternlicht in 1995, is registered as HOT on the NYSE?

7) The names that came for ‘pick a codename’ votes for this product were so terrible that everyone was pretty happy when one of the leads overrode it and declared that the codename would be ‘_____’, presumably because he liked fast cars. When the  time came to pick a real name for the product before shipping, they ended up sticking with ‘______’.

They continued with the name because they were in love with it deeply, and more people in the team started associating it with fast cars. Another reason had to do with design terminology, where ____ referred to a set of parts of this category of products – and the product was focussing more on content, not on _____. Some cheekiness there. Which product is this?

8) Here’s a guessable one:

What did George de Hevesy do to the Nobel medals of German physicists Max von Laue (1914) and James Franck (1925) to save them from the inavading Nazi forces?

9) This is the name which the Philadelphia Police Department gave to a certain day, for the first time in 1966. It was not a term of endearment to them. It was named so as it usually brings massive traffic jams and over-crowded sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed from opening to closing. What’s the term? [There is an another popular explanation of the origin of the term.]

10) When this company was born in 1901 with an oil discovery in Spindletop, Texas, the primary commercial fuel was coal. The largest investor was William Larimer Mellon of the Pittsburgh Mellon banking family. It became one of the world’s largest companies before being purchased by Chevron in 1984. Before his death in 1949, William Larimer Mellon proclaimed the company to be “so big I have lost track of it.” Name the company.

Ans7: Chrome (Browser)
In design parlance, Chrome refers to the toolbars, tabs and buttons.

Ans8: Medals were dissolved in aqua regia and later made and presented again

Ans9: Black Friday

The more popular explanation has to do with the colors of ink accountants traditionally used for noting profit and loss. A company “in the red” is recording loss, red ink being the traditional color for noting negative finances. “In the black” means just the opposite; thus the notion that Black Friday will force those bookkeepers to put away the red ink, and get out the black.

Ans10: Gulf Oil
