  • 124. Stage 1 (II)
  • 125. • In early 1923, Kansas City, Missouri animator X created a short film entitled Alice's Wonderland, which featured child actress Virginia Davis interacting with animated characters. After the bankruptcy in 1923 of his previous firm, Laugh-O-Gram Films, X moved to Hollywood to join his brother Roy. Film distributor Margaret J. Winkler of M.J. Winkler Productions contacted X with plans to distribute a whole series of Alice Comedies purchased for $1,500 per reel with X as a production partner. X and his brother Roy formed Y that same year. More animated films followed after Alice.
  • 126. X has a tormented past, which continues to influence him throughout his lifetime. Xis but one of many aliases used by David Webb. Webb is a career foreign service officer and a specialist in Far Eastern affairs. Before the events in Y, Webb had a Thai wife named Dao and two children named Joshua and Alyssa in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Webb's wife and two children were inadvertently killed during the Vietnam War when a fighter plane strayed into Cambodia, dropped two bombs and strafed a spot near the Mekong River. However, unknown to X, Joshua survived. Due to Cambodia's neutrality in the war, every nation disclaimed the plane, and, therefore, no one took responsibility for the incident. Having nothing left to live for, Webb went to Saigon and, under the careful guidance of Alex Conklin, ended up training for an elite Top Secret Special Forces unit called Medusa. Within that select organization Webb was known only by his code name, Delta One.
  • 127. X is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them. X has long been a major subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars. Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the sciences, and the performing arts all incorporate some notion of X into their respective measuring systems. Some simple, relatively uncontroversial definitions of X include “X is what keeps everything from happening at once."
  • 128. X's precursor was Y, a game of unknown origin. The first written reference is found in a book by the Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes, most famous for writing Don Quixote. Cervantes was a gambler, and the main characters of his tale Rinconete y Cortadillo, from Novelas Ejemplares, are a couple of cheats working in Seville. They are proficient at cheating at ventiuna(Spanish for Y). The game is played with the Spanish baraja deck, which lacks eights, nines and tens. This short story was written between 1601 and 1602, implying that ventiuna was played in Castilla since the beginning of the 17th century or earlier. Later references to this game are found in France and Spain.
  • 129. • The earliest known production of X is a piece of ironware excavated from an archaeological site in Anatolia (Kaman-Kalehoyuk) and is about 4,000 years old. Other ancient X comes from East Africa, dating back to 1400 BC. In the 4th century BC X weapons like the Falcata were produced in the Iberian Peninsula, while Noric X was used by the Roman military. • X was produced in large quantities in Sparta around 650BC.

During his earlier period he was closely involved in marketing and retail distribution of the textile division of the company and was active in various organisations such as the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) (a council he once chaired), Millowners’ Association (MOA), Associated Chambers of Commerce & Industry of India, etc. • In 1998, he took a leave of absence to complete his Masters Degree in Science of Engineering Business Management from the University of Warwick with a thesis titled "Leading to Success in India". After receiving his Master's degree in 2001, he returned as Deputy Managing Director of Y and was later promoted to Joint Managing Director. He was appointed to this position on August 1, 2001 and stayed till March 2011, when he stepped down, and younger brother was made managing director. X was appointed Managing Director of Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation.
  • 132. X whiskey is a type of American whiskey – a barrelaged distilled spirit made primarily from corn. The name of the spirit derives from its historical association with an area known as Old X, around what is now X County, Kentucky (which, in turn, was named after the French House of X royal family). It has been produced since the 18th century. While it may be made anywhere in the United States, it is strongly associated with the American South in general, and Kentucky in particular. X is served neat, diluted with water, over ice cubes, or mixed with soda and into cocktails, including the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the whiskey sour, and the mint julep. It is also used in cooking.
  • 133. X is a New Zealand multinational dairy cooperative owned by 10,600 New Zealand farmers. The company is responsible for approximately 30% of the world's dairy exports and, with revenue exceeding NZ$19.87 billion, is New Zealand's largest company.

In 1929, the British taxonomistReginald Innes Pocock subordinated the species under the genus X using the scientific name X Y. • The word is probably of Oriental origin and retraceable to the Ancient Greek word ______, the Latin word X, the Old French word pantere, most likely meaning "the yellowish animal", or from pandarah meaning whitish-yellow. The derivation from Greek _____- ("all") and ____ ("beast") may be folk etymology that led to many curious fables. • The word “Z" is traceable to the Latin word X, meaning "a spotted Actaeon". The Greek word X is possibly derived from a Persian source.
  • 135. The structure of the X can vary among the different branches of the animal kingdom. Cephalopods have two "gill X" and one "systemic X". In vertebrates, the X lies in the anterior part of the body cavity, dorsal to the gut. It is always surrounded by a pericardium, which is usually a distinct structure, but may be continuous with the peritoneum in jawless and cartilaginous fish. Hagfishes, uniquely among vertebrates, also possess a second X-like structure in the tail.

  • 138. The earliest reference to the name “X" was found in a ninth-century Western Ganga Dynasty stone inscription on a "vīra gallu" ( ) (literally, "hero stone", a rock edict extolling the virtues of a warrior). In this inscription found in Begur, “X" is referred to as a place in which a battle was fought in 890 CE. It states that the place was part of the Ganga Kingdom until 1004 and was known as ________, the "City of Guards"in Halegannada.
  • 139. Stage 1 (V)
  • 140. A complex, highly driven man, not given to close personal relationships, X retained a pre-eminent position in the game by acting as an administrator, selector and writer for three decades following his retirement. Even after he became reclusive in his declining years his opinion was highly sought, and his status as a national icon was still recognised—more than 50 years after his retirement as a Test player, in 2001, the Australian Prime Minister John Howard called him the "greatest living Australian".
  • 141. The word “X" is popularly thought to derive from the word Kambera or Canberry which is claimed to mean "meeting place" in the old Ngunnawal language of the local Ngabri people. According to Ngunnawal Elder, Don Bell, the correct translation is "woman's breasts" and is the Indigenous name for the two mountains, Black Mountain and Mount Ainslie which lie almost opposite each other. In the 1860s, the name was reported by Queanbeyan newspaper owner John Gale to be an anglicisation of the indigenous name 'nganbra' or 'nganbira', meaning "hollow between a woman's breasts", and referring to the Sullivans Creek floodplain between Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain.
