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.

TBQ –351

1) Stamps were originally cut from a sheet using scissors. Some clerks took to doing something to make them easier to separate. Since 1847 Henry Archer had been working on a machine to mechanize this concept. Archer’s machine was too unreliable to be granted a Post Office contract, but his work pointed the way for others, and the Post Office purchased 4 of those machines from David Napier & Son in 1854. What did the clerks resort to and what’s this idea?

2) It’s cash that’s given to help get people to the polls. The money can go toward perks like coffee and doughnuts for door knockers, gas for volunteers to chauffeur elderly voters, or pocket money for kids who distribute fliers and sample ballots on Election Day. Also known as “walking-around money” or “get-out-the-vote money,” it’s most common in poor areas of Philadelphia; Chicago; Newark, N.J.; Baltimore; Los Angeles; and other big cities. Both parties use it, but it’s more common among Democrats, who tend to be better represented in the areas that rely on it. How do we know this better?

3) [Tata Question] Identify this distinctively packed Tata Coffee brand.

Tata Coffee Brand

4) In 300 BC China, according to the Guanzi proposal, this commodity was taxed – not just the earliest written evidence of such taxation system, but the first known instance of a state-control monopoly on a vital commodity. The idea behind this was to import and sell it at a higher price – the revenues were used for building armies, and even the Great Wall. What was this taxation all about?

5) This numbering system traces its roots to the 1920s, and began as an introductory course number in University of Buffalo’s course catalogue. Many colleges and universities began to switch to this numbering system. In 1935, two researchers from Kent State published a paper celebrating the efficiency of the new system: “Recently college catalogues have revealed a commendable trend toward a logical arrangement of course numbers,” they wrote. “The loose hodgepodge of former years is giving way to systematic arrangement.”

Kent State came up with a different system, but later schools standardized the Buffalo system. The standardization got a shot in the arm when Charles W. Eliot, then-president of Harvard, began the system of electives and adopted the Buffalo catalogue system. Later, these three digits got into popular culture and began to be used to refer introductory courses in any area. What’s the three digit system?

6) The Pune of yore has a set of administrative regions named after days of the week when the local market would set anchor in that area. How do we know these places, significantly different from one another?

7) This Indian genius was born in 1895, and discovered the first of tetracycline antibiotics, aureomycin and polymyxin while at working at Lederle Laboratories (Now part of Wyeth). He co-discovered, while working with Cyrus Fiske at Harvard, the two chemicals – phosphocreatine and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – that store energy in our body. Identify this scientist who, many say, should have won a Nobel in Medicine.

8) Henry Brown was an inventor who saw a convenient and secure way to store money, valuable and important papers. He developed something that was patented in 1886. What did this African American inventor invent?

9) Today the term simply refers to large financial institutions that offer multiple services in various locations, such as a bank. The term typically refers to full-service brokerages that offer research, order execution and investment advice all under the same roof. The term originated because of an advanced communications system they employed. What?

10) Identify the advertiser.
