  3. 3. • X lodged an enquiry with the Supreme Court of Florida over a ‘quickie’ name change, which would then be changed back after the tournament concludes. • The idea, a publicity stunt for her outside business venture of branded candy, will reportedly also involve her sporting the ‘Y’ emblem – a striking pair of red lips – on her attire. • The quite bizarre marketing move by X and her management company IMG looks likely to go ahead, too: there are no apparent legal barriers standing in her way. • Though the idea was eventually cancelled citing lengthy procedure.
  4. 4. lenna
  5. 5. • “X" originated with miners, who needed to warn their fellows that a charge had been set. • The first cannons developed were discharged, shot or exploded by placing a flaming torch to a small hole packed with gunpowder and leading to the main powder charge. This caused the main charge to explode, propelling the cannon ball to the enemy, or sometimes, blowing up the cannon and all standing nearby. • Hence, X was both a command to the torch man, and a warning to all around.
  6. 6. Fire in the hole
  7. 7. • Y is a dystopian novel by X published in 1953. It is regarded as one of his best works. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. The title refers to the temperature that X understood to be the auto ignition point of paper • X's early life witnessed the Golden Age of Radio while the transition to the Golden Age of Television began right around the time he started to work on the stories that would eventually lead to Y. X saw these forms of media as a threat to the reading of books, indeed as a threat to society as they act as a distraction from important affairs.
  8. 8. Id the most famous reply?? • "But Rhett...where will I go ? What will I do ?"
  9. 9. • "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
  10. 10. • X has become shorthand in popular culture for "ruthless selfishness, intellectual precocity, or both", says historian Jennifer Burns in her X biography Goddess of the Market. • Andrew Ryan primary antagonist of Bioshock had his philosophy, his name, and some of his history based on X. His name is a partial anagram of hers. Both Andrew Ryan and X were originally from the Soviet Union, but moved to America to avoid the increasing tensions of Communism.
  11. 11. • The HBO X has become iconic. And well it might. It's a terrific design, and it has served the show very well...everyone knows it. I love it. I have all those replicas right here, sitting on my shelve. And yet, and yet... it's still not right. It's not the X I want my readers to see. • The way the X is described in the books... HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front,... my X is a hunched beast looming over the X room, ugly and asymmetric..
  12. 12. "It's a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foe."
  13. 13. If these were the top three who is the fourth?? • Otis Davis • Carl Kaufmann • Malcolm Spence
  14. 14. • The title derives from Miranda's speech in William Shakespeare's The Tempest, Act V, Scene I: • “O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! X, That has such people in it.” • Unlike the most popular optimist utopian novels of the time, Y sought to provide a frightening vision of the future. . An early trip to the United States gave X much of its character. Not only was Y outraged by the culture of youth, commercial cheeriness, sexual promiscuity and the inward- looking nature of many Americans which were central in the novel.
  15. 15. • During the recording of the album, there were rumors floating about that supernatural occurrences had been going on in the studio, such as lights flipping on and off, strange noises, visions of Satan, etc. This was used as evidence that Satan and the Antichrist had a hand in making this. • The scene climaxed when the producer got into a car accident and upon seeing the figure asked the mechanic to round off the bill.
