  6. 6. 2. The last time there was such strain put on the web was in the aftermath of 9/11. Social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook bore the brunt of people’s reactions and news sharing as more details became public knowledge. Even Google News felt the pressure.

  13. 13. D’Oh
  14. 14. 6. X defence is the term applied to several legal cases of a defence based on X films where reality is actually a computer generation—simulism—and that the real world is quite different from what reality is perceived to be. In using this defence, the defendant claims that he committed a crime because he believed he was in the X, and not in the real world. This is a version of the insanity defence and considered a descendant of the Taxi Driver defence of John Hinckley, one of the first defences based on blurring reality. Regardless of whether the defendant actually believes that he or she was living inside the , this defence has been used successfully to put users inside of mental-care facilities instead of prisons. Tonda Lynn Ansley of Hamilton, Ohio, was found not guilty by reason of insanity using this defence after shooting her landlady in the head in July 2002. Vadim Mieseges of San Francisco offered a "X " explanation to police after chopping up his landlady, and was declared mentally incompetent to stand trial. Joshua Cooke's lawyers were going to attempt this defence in 2003 in his trial for the murder of his adoptive parents, before he pleaded guilty.The case of Lee Malvo also included references to The X, mentioned in the writings taken from his jail cell; he reportedly shouted "Free yourself from the X " from his cell after his arrest, and told FBI agents to watch the film if they wanted to understand him.
  15. 15. The Matrix Defence
  16. 16. 7. You know this as famous for something else. That something else celebrated something significant recently. ____ _______ is a term used to describe a huge amount of creative writing available to the American public in the early nineteen-hundreds. Termed "____ magazines" because of the low quality paper used between the covers, these publications proliferated in the nineteen-thirties and nineteen-forties to the point where they blanketed newsstands in just about every popular fiction genre of the time. Although the pages in-between the covers were a dingy cheap quality, the covers were beautifully decorated, many times with lurid portraits of pretty women in various stages of trouble, and the handsome men attempting to rescue them. By under-paying writers and publishing on in-expensive media, ____ publishers were able to charge 10 cents for an issue containing several stories. Low prices drew in many working-class young adults and teenagers, who could not otherwise afford some of the more pricier magazines of the day. The low price of the ____ magazine, coupled with the skyrocketing literacy rates, all contributed to the success of the medium. ____s allowed its readers to experience people, places, and action they normally would not have access to. Bigger-than-life heroes, pretty girls, exotic places, strange and mysterious villains all stalked the pages of the many issues available to the general public on the magazine stands. And without television widely available, much of the free time of the working literate class was spent pouring through the pages of the ____s.

  20. 20. 9. John Emil List, was a convicted multiple murderer and long-time fugitive. On November 9, 1971 he killed his wife, mother, and three children in their home at 431 Hillside Avenue in Westfield, New Jersey, and then disappeared. He had planned the murders so meticulously that nearly a month passed before anyone noticed that anything was amiss. A fugitive from justice for nearly 18 years who assumed a new identity and remarried, List was finally apprehended on June 1, 1989 after the story of his murders was broadcast on the television program America's Most Wanted. List was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced in 1990 to five consecutive terms of life imprisonment. He died in prison in 2008. List serves as the inspiration for which famous fictional character? (Picture in next slide)

  24. 24. 11. X was going to be used in the Lifehouse project as a song sung by Ray, the Scottish farmer at the beginning of the album as he gathers his wife Sally and his two children to begin their exodus to London. Townshend stated in an interview that X' is about the absolute desolation of teenagers at Woodstock, where everyone was smacked out on acid and 20 people had brain damage. The irony was that some listeners took the song to be a teenage celebration: '__________, yes! We're all wasted!’ ID X

  27. 27. 12. A/An X is a large upright standing stone. Xs may be found singly as monoliths, or as part of a group of similar stones. Their size can vary considerably, but their shape is generally uneven and squared, often tapering towards the top. Xs are widely distributed across Europe, Africa and Asia, but are most numerous in Western Europe; in particular in Ireland, Great Britain and Brittany. There are about 50,000 megaliths in these areas,while there are 1,200 Xs in northwest France alone. Standing stones are usually difficult to date, but pottery found underneath some in Atlantic Europe connects them with the Beaker people. They were constructed during many different periods across pre-history as part of a larger megalithic culture that flourished in Europe and beyond. Where do you know X from?

  49. 49. 5. The members of the band reportedly spent afternoons getting stoned and watching Three Stooges reruns. One day, they had a post-Stooges meeting to try to come up with a name. Kramer said when he was in school he would write the word X all over his notebooks. The name had popped into his head after listening to Harry Nilsson's album Aerial Ballet, which featured jacket art of a circus performer jumping out of a biplane. Initially, Kramer's bandmates were nonplussed; they all thought he was referring to the Sinclair Lewis novel they were required to read in high school English class. "No, not Y" Kramer explained, spelling it out properly. The band settled upon this name after also considering "the Hookers" and "Spike Jones." Identify the band X, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Y.

  55. 55. 8. Air New Zealand, which has established a long tradition of memorable in-flight safety videos, has done a new take on an old theme. This time the video features brief cameos from the director, X, as well as Y, the main actor in the trilogy (who is not in character). Describing itself "the official airline of Z”, Air New Zealand subtitles the new film "the most epic safety video ever made". Air New Zealand was one of the pioneers of the alternative in-flight safety video, and has garnered particular success with its W-themed versions. The original W safety video gathered more than 12 million views on YouTube. Other videos have included Bear Grylls , as well as the All Blacks New Zealand rugby team and the US rap artist, Snoop Dogg. This is a news clip, Put funda.

  57. 57. 9. ‘We also set out to smash the old canard that the computer will enslave us,' he said. 'We did not say the computer will set us free—I have no idea how it will work out. This was strictly a marketing position’ This created something that won these awards. Awards 2007: Best Super Bowl Spot (in the game's 40-year history) 2003: WFA—Hall of Fame Award (Jubilee Golden Award) 1999: TV Guide—Number One Greatest Commercial of All Time 1995: Advertising Age—Greatest Commercial 1995: Clio Awards—Hall of Fame 1984: Clio Awards 1984: 31st Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival—Grand Prix What/who got these awards?
  58. 58. Apple 1984
  59. 59. 10. Initially, X was offered a character that was described to him as "very admirable, very polite", and he decided to play that character as if he had "some kind of a secret". Without knowing what that secret was, X understood the potential Y had as a growing character, therefore rejecting offers for guest appearances and insisting on becoming a series regular. In order to achieve Y's trademark calmness, X utilised yoga techniques, which allowed him to convey the character by "being a good listener". The humanity of Y’s personality played an integral role in his development, especially the very deep relationship with Z, which was interpreted by some viewers – and even X himself – as possibly romantic. The loss of Z is partially what turned Y into a ruthless villain, who is not above anything when it comes to avenging Z's death. However, the loss of Z is also what cultivated Y’s desire to create a new "family”. X, Y, Z? (I’ll give it for only Y and Z as well)
