Aww!Now we’re all seniors!

As we put an end to the glorious junior years of our past in our respective  Undergrad degree programs and enter the final year (or 2 years in case of Mama,Knitty and Qrish who took up 5 year degree programs),we have a small set of questions:

1)This company was founded in 2012 to expand Earth’s resource base. A list of major investors and advisors notable for their entrepreneurship and/or involvement/interest in space, exploration, and research including Ross Perot, Ram Shriram, James Cameron, Eric Schmidt are a part of this project. As stated in its press release the company will "add trillions of dollars to the global GDP.“ Id this company and what business are they into?

2)The song title, "X", was inspired by The Story of___[1]_____ by the 12th-century Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi of the Seljuq empire. It is based on the true story of a young man called Qays ibn al-Mulawwah from the northern Arabian Peninsula, in the Umayyad Caliphate during the 7th century. Nizami’s tale, about a moon princess who was married off by her father to someone other than the one who was desperately in love with her, resulting in madness. The story is one of the legendary tales of love often compared to Romeo and Juliet. _________ was deeply impressed by this story after his friend George Harrison married Pattie Boyd. Thus resulted X, a modification of the name [1]. Id the song and artist.

3)In the medical theories prevalent in the West from Classical Antiquity up to the Middle Ages, the body’s health depended on the equilibrium between four "humors" or vital fluids: blood, phlegm, "yellow bile" and "black bile". Excesses of the last two humors were supposed to produce aggression and depression, respectively. The English words bilious, cholera is derived from excesses of bile and yellow bile(cholera). What word is derived from the excess of black bile?

4)___________is a term for land that is unoccupied or is under dispute between parties that leave it unoccupied due to fear or uncertainty. The term was originally used to define a contested territory or a dumping ground for refuse between fiefdoms. It is most commonly associated with the First World War to describe the area of land between two enemy trenches that neither side wished to openly move on or take control of due to fear of being attacked by the enemy in the process.

5)Around 1900, seven brothers named ________immigrated to the United States from Italy. They eventually settled on the West Coast in Berkeley, California and became machinists. They created an aircraft manufacturing company in Berkeley called “________ Brothers", which remained in business until 1976, although their product line changed over the years. In 1925 they Brothers stopped making aircraft. Rachele _______ turned the company’s know-how in making hydraulic aircraft pumps to the manufacture of a new kind of deep well agricultural pump.. Their design turned out to be an innovative new pump. Since then they have been focussing on water technologies In 1970, they invented a unique product and the brand has now become synonymous with the product. What brand?
