  12. 12. 3. What product is X? The Japanese scientists and engineers who came up with the (£400) X, settled on the hard to ignore Wasabi after trying hundreds of odours, including rotten eggs, before settling on the Japanese condiment – a favourite of sushi lovers. Its active ingredient, allyl isothiocyanate, acts as an irritant in the nose. For their tests, Imai and colleagues filled canisters of the compound and then filled the room with wasabi gas. Of the 14 test subjects—including four who were deaf—13 responded as desired within 2 minutes.

  15. 15. 4. Identify the movie and the effect In an interview, director Ron Howard explains how he shot the effects for the movie X, “If we tried to create the effect with wires, I sort of shudder to think what the movie would’ve really looked like.” Howard and his actors initially planned to experience it just once for research, but after experiencing, the director began to wonder if X could be partially filmed with the effect by building a set inside the KC-135. After getting permissions, the biggest hurdle was the fact that the effect could only be achieved for. 25 seconds at a time So the filmmakers had to break down each scene into small chunks and then keep everything organised. By the time shooting wrapped, the cast and crew had up nearly four hours of this effect — which is more than what the people they were portraying experienced in training.

  18. 18. 5. Identify the mascot X and product Y Bibendum, commonly referred to in English as X is the official mascot of the _________ Y company. Introduced in 1894, Bibendum is one of the world's oldest trademarks. Interestingly, Bibendum is made of Y but of a different colour than usual. The reason for this colour oddity is that prior to 1912, Y were either grey-white or had a light translucent beige hue. Carbon was subsequently added to the formula as a preservative and to strengthen and which resulted in its current colour.

  21. 21. 6. What is X? In Japan, convenience stores across the nation carry large X. The idea is to lob one after a robber to improve the chance of an arrest. But can the average convenience-store clerk hit a moving target? The advice is to aim for the ground near the perp’s feet because the balls shatter on impact and release their contents in a radius as wide as 10 meters. They are primarily used as a deterrent, developed almost 30 years ago as an Y replacement. At that time, the nation’s highways had a problem with toll evaders, and toll-booth attendants had taken to throwing raw Y at vehicles that charged through without paying their fees. Someone came up with X as an alternative to using Y, an improvement since Y can be washed off, but the X is more permanent.

  36. 36. Q3. ID X The word X has been around a lot longer than you might think. It first appeared as an adjective in the late 15th century, originally coming from the Latin Janua ‘Genoa’, as in Genoa, Italy, where the cloth was first produced. The noun sense comes from X fustian, which literally means ‘fustian from Genoa’, a phrase used in the 16th century to refer to a heavy twilled cotton cloth.
  37. 37. Q4.

It was briefly popular there in the late 1960s and early 1970s, its popularity spurred by growing awareness of foreign cultures, by the minimalism of the Mod lifestyle and, in particular, by the Beatles and subsequently the Monkees. Although it used Y’s name, Y in fact, never wore an X. Y was mostly seen wearing an achkan, which is longer than an X. A typical X never goes below the knees
  38. 38. Q5. What does this theory explain? The most reasonable theory explaining this, has to do with the fact that, when clothing conventions were becoming standardized, many women did not dress themselves. Wealthy women, in particular. Servants were often required to help rich ladies get into and out of their elaborate dresses—and servants, like everyone else, were most commonly right-handed. Fashions working the way it does—trickled down from the wealthy to the commoners, and these conventions were not changed.
  39. 39. Q6. Who is X? What fashion choice? It seems that X took a trip to Japan in the 1980s and was rather moved to see everyone at Sony wearing a uniform. He was keen to adopt the same sartorial consistency at _____. He thought wearing the same corporate garb would help _____ employees come together--something school uniforms never seem to quite manage. X discovered that the Sony garb was designed by the fine Japanese fashion icon Issey Miyake. So he asked Miyake to create, dare one even imagine it, an _____ vest. Employees expressed aggressively negative reservations about such a 1984-ish suggestion. "Oh, man, did I get booed off the stand Miyake, though, stayed in touch. X’s enthusiasm for a personal uniform remained undimmed, so he asked Miyake to make him a piece of clothing, which we have come to associate with him. He received "hundreds of them." X then offered a quote that now seems painfully poignant: "I have enough to last for the rest of my life."
  40. 40. Q7. X? and FITB “In Hollywood, famous singer Elvis Presley used to wear ____ ______. I was a huge follower of Presley. I used to think, iaf I become successful someday, then I will build a different image of mine. By the grace of God, I could do it with gold.

  60. 60. 1. Identify X Throughout WWII, this variety of cooking products we have today didn’t yet exist, so housewives often saved X for cooking. It was also valued for the war effort—homemakers were asked to give their X to the local butcher, who turned it into the government because it was needed for the production of glycerin used to make bombs. Even the Disney company was enlisted to encourage American housewives to give their precious X to the government. “A skillet of X is a mini- munitions factory,” stated a narrator as Minnie Mouse gave Pluto X in the 1942 short cartoon created to encourage people to participate in the war effort.

It marked the first occasion in modern times that the colour of post boxes in the United Kingdom had been changed from their traditional red.

In some cases, the locations chosen by Royal Mail for gold boxes were disputed by certain people as not being appropriate, usually because the these people were more closely associated with another location, and usually resulted in their choice of box being awarded this colour.

  69. 69. 4. For what object was this gun made? Tim Derk helped invent X cannon when he worked as the Coyote mascot for the San Antonio Spurs in the 1990s. “It was like carrying a TV set on your back. The gun was probably at least four feet long. It used a cast-iron pipe.“ “The Phoenix Gorilla and I were two of the pioneers,” Derk says. The gun evolved during what might be called the “slingshot era,” a time when mascots used enormous rubber bands to fling X . But the slingshots had limited range, and Derk and his fellow mascots wanted to send swag to the top of the stadium. For inspiration, the mascots looked to the spud launcher, a cannon designed to shoot potato-size objects. They realized it could also launch a balled-up X. These are now commonplace in events such as F1 races to EDM concerts

  72. 72. 5. What essential is X? Turkish police raided the workshop in Izmir – a port city that is often a departure point for migrants hoping to make it to Europe – and found workers stuffing the X with packaging materials. Syrians tend to congregate in Izmir while they seek passage on a smuggling boat. It is up to migrants to find a X for the treacherous journey. A properly made X costs up to $150, according to the BBC. A shoddy X may cost as little as $15, but has almost no hope of helping. Regardless, many desperate migrants will still buy them. These under-the-counter X are also often black so as to avoid being spotted.

Intending to make a game "a lot more hard edge, a little bit more serious, a little bit more like Enter the Dragon or Bloodsport" than Street Fighter II's cartoon fantasy style, Boon and Tobias decided to continue their project even after the deal to use the Bloodsport license fell through. One of their own characters, became "a spoof on the whole Van Damme situation"

One of the symptoms of the plague was coughing and sneezing, and it is believed that Pope Gregory suggested saying X after a person ‘underwent something’ in hopes that this prayer would protect them from an otherwise ‘certain death’.

The producers suggested creating something in the vein of Lotte Reiniger, who was an animator who worked in the early 1900’s making mostly short films based on fairy tales and classic stories. Her animations were distinguished by their use of hand-cut paper silhouettes and lyrical, elastic movements. The final touch was laying a grainy paper texture coloured with sepia tones over and behind the animated figures. ‘When we designed the characters, we tried to purposely design puppets. We should feel as if we’re watching a very clever puppet show and not a traditional animated movie,’

Restaurants typically throw X out after only one use – and because they are not environmentally friendly, they turn into a something that never biodegrades and clogs up landfills. More than a half-million pounds of them are discarded every year. The X Initiative collects donated X from restaurants, schools and homes across the country, then melts them, remanufactures them and thus reduces waste. Since 2011, Bryan and the Ware family have proudly dedicated themselves to sorting countless X in their own backyard, recycling them for future creative use and are distributed to programs at children’s hospitals across the U.S.

The phenomenon is common in the UK, where individual X can often attract a significantly large audience share. The introduction of a wider range of X is mitigating the effect, but it remains a large concern for the National Grid operators.

Their skills are as enthralling as the performers on stage, and the latest viral video of one X at an Eminem concert in particular is proof. The original video, shows famed X Holly Maniatty to the side of the stage, ‘performing’ along to "Rap God" with Eminem as he performs at the Firefly Music Festival. Maniatty has become a star in her own right after numerous appearances alongside rappers like Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Wu Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, and more over the years . She's also the same ‘performer” that garnered internet attention after a video with Waka Flocka showed the rapper confusing her ‘performance’ for dancing. According to an interview with CBC, Maniatty says for hip hop shows in particular, there is a lot of research and preparation that goes into her performance. "Go see when that song was written and see what they’re talking about. And then think about something that's more iconic about it and kind of build your performance that way to make it as authentic and close to the meaning of the person who wrote it," she continued.

  115. 115. 4.What were the nests lined with? In 2012, researchers examined the behaviour of house finches and house sparrows – both species that are common in densely populated urban environments where X are easy to come by – and found evidence that the birds use these nasty nest ingredients as pest repellant! The birds weren't sticking whole X into their nests. Instead, they would pull out fibres the same way they might grab a single twig or feather. As it turned out, the nests with the most fibres also tended to have the fewest parasites like ticks and mites, the sorts of little buggers that dine on the feathers and blood of developing chicks. Birds were also picky about the X they'd use: they could tell the difference between used and unused X, and the research revealed a preference for the already-used variety. ________ is a noxious substance, and used X hold onto plenty of it, as well as other toxic compounds. It seems even blood-hungry parasites know better than to get too close to these poisons.

When the move stared to become fairly popular amongst performers back in like the early 90's manufacturers started making their products more durable so that technicians didn't have to buy a new X every concert. The biggest concern most technicians have when X Y is actually the feedback that's going to be coming. That's why you always see the performers hold the X out for a second before they actually Y it, for the technician.
