looooong tyme no “C”;)

August 25, 2010

sorry for the “lots of long questions” type of set this time.we’ll post shorter ones soon.

1)Several different explanations exist for the original name.
Local historian Mary Clark adds a probably apocryphal anecdote when
she states the name:

…first appeared in print on September 22, 1881 when a New York
Times reporter went to the West 30s with a police guide to get details
of a multiple murder there. He referred to a particularly infamous
tenement at 39th Street and 10th Avenue as “X,” and said that the
entire section was “probably the lowest and filthiest in the city.”
According to this version, 39th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues
became known as X and the name was later expanded to the surrounding
streets. Another version ascribes the name’s origins to a German
restaurant in the area known as Heil’s ______, after its proprietors.
But the most common version traces it to the story of Dutch Fred The
Cop, a veteran policeman, who with his rookie partner, was watching a
small riot on West 39th Street near 10th Avenue. The rookie is
supposed to have said, “This place is _______ itself,” to which Fred
replied, “_____’s a mild climate. This is X”.

2)X’s personality is generally kind natured and well mannered. mostly
she is portrayed as selfless and generous. Typically, she does not
show an aggressive nature even when she is fighting (this is done by
quick slaps, elegant high kicks thrusts in the air, and other gracious
fighting techniques ) or confronting her enemies. This, however,
varies slightly from game to game. One of X’s most common traits
during her playable appearances is her ability to temporarily float in
the air with her large skirt, and later on, with her umbrella.a
website claimed,in an article titled X- “the worst woman in gaming”
claiming that she is a “woman of immense potential power who refuses
to use any of it”. The website stated that she was “neither a feminist
nor sexy” and criticized aspects of her character, including her
wardrobe and her position as a ruler.another stated that, although she
proved her worth she is “the most danger-prone moron the world has
ever known”who?

3)Producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz have claimed credit for
coining the term “XY music”, saying that when they discussed their
target audience, they decided it was “teenagers, the young kids. And
at the time we used to ___________ and my partner and I used to look
at it and laugh and say, ‘Ah, this is like X music’.” The term was
seized upon by Buddah Records label executive Neil Bogart. Music
writer and X historian Bill Pitzonka confirmed the claim, telling
Goldmine magazine: “That’s when X crystallized into an actual camp.
Kasenetz and Katz really crystallized it when they came up with the
term themselves and that nice little analogy. And Neil Bogart, being
the marketing person he was, just crammed it down the throats of
people. That’s really the point at which X took off.ID XY.

4)PuKaSa an Association for Art and Letters, is an organization of
artists, writers and art and literature enthusiasts based in Kerala.
The association was formed on August 14, 1981, under the leadership of
Malayalam poet Vyloppilli Sreedhara Menon. The origins of the PuKaSa
can be traced back to the Deshabhimani Study Circle which existed in
the 1970s, and before that to the Kerala Jeevatsahitya Sangham which
was initiated in 1937 by a few left-leaning Congressmen, led by E. M.
S. Namboodiripad.expand PuKaSa.

5)”X” is a form of forced marriage that is necessitated due solely to
an unplanned pregnancy. Some religions and cultures consider it a
moral imperative to marry in such a situation, based on reasoning that
surrender of virginity is sinful and unsafe prior to the act of
marriage.The phrase is an American colloquialism, though it is also
used in other parts of the world.
It is based on a hyperbolic scenario in which the pregnant woman’s
father resorts to coercion (such as threatening with a ______) to
ensure that the man who is responsible for the lady being pregnant
goes through with it, sometimes even following the man to the altar to
prevent his escape. The use of violent coercion to marry is no longer
legal in the United States, although many anecdotal stories and folk
songs record instances of such intimidation in the 1700s and 1800s.ID

6)”I am quite sure ladies and gentlemen, that in this august assembly
nobody would envy my position at this moment. Speaking after such a
charismatic and formidable personality like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is
like coming out of the pavilion to play after Tendulkar has made a
sparkling century. But in some weak moment I had committed
myself.”these were the starting words of which famous personality on
the topic”spirituality:halo or hoax?”?

7)Petroleum supermajors are sometimes collectively referred to as X, a
pejorative term used to describe the individual and collective
economic power of the largest oil and gas producers, and their
perceived influence on politics, particularly in the United States. X
is often associated with the Energy Lobby.
Usually used to represent the industry as a whole in a pejorative or
derogatory manner, “X” has come to encompass the enormous impact crude
oil exerts over first-world industrial society.The term is also
utilized to discuss the consumer relationship with oil production and
petroleum use, as consumers in the United States and Europe tend to
respond to petroleum price spikes by purchasing vehicles with greater
fuel efficiency during these periods. Historically, consumer interest
in fuel efficiency and the oil debate wanes significantly as pump
prices stabilize.ID X.

8)n 1883, Francis Galton, cousin of Charles Darwin, devised a
technique called composite photography, described in detail in
Inquiries in Human Faculty and its Development, which he believed
could be used to identify ‘types’ by appearance, which he hoped would
aid medical diagnosis, and even criminology through the identification
of typical criminal faces. In short, he wondered if certain groups of
people had certain facial characteristics. To find this answer, he
created photographic composite images of the faces of vegetarians and
criminals to see if there was a typical facial appearance for each.
Galton overlaid multiple images of faces onto a single photographic
plate so that each individual face contributed roughly equally to a
final composite face. While the resultant faces did little to allow
the a priori identification of either criminals or vegetarians, Galton
observed that the composite image was more attractive than the
component faces. Similar observations were made in 1886 by Stoddard,
who created composite faces of members of the National Academy of
Sciences and graduating seniors of Smith College.what is This
phenomenon is now known as?

9)____________ is a film genre that emerged in the United States in
the early 1970s when many exploitation films were made specifically
for an audience of urban black people; the word itself is a
portmanteau of 2 words . _________ films were the first to feature
soundtracks of funk and soul music. These films starred primarily
black actors.When set in the Northeast or West Coast of the U.S.,
________ films tend to take place in the ghetto, dealing with hit men,
drug dealers,etc . The genre frequently takes place in an
atmosphere of crime and drug-dealing. Ethnic slurs against whites and
negative white characters like corrupt cops, politicians and gullible gangsters were common. FITB.

10)The first recorded use of the term “X” is in a 1971 book by Ed
Sanders, The Family: The Story of Charles Manson’s Dune Buggy Attack
Battalion, in which it is alleged that The Manson Family was involved
in making such a film.
The metaphorical use of the term ______ to denote killing appears to
be derived from a verb for the extinguishing of a candle flame. The
word has been used as such in English slang for hundreds of years.
J.C. Hotten lists the term in the fifth edition of his Slang
Dictionary in 1874 as a “term very common among the lower orders of
London, meaning to die from disease or accident.” The word is
descended  from the Old English “snithan”, meaning to slaughter and
dismember, from “snide”, meaning to kill by cutting or stabbing, from
“snid”, to cut.what’s X?
