  3. 3. 1<br />"___" is a criticism of slide-based information delivery methods referring to a state of boredom and fatigue induced by information overload such as those created by the X.<br />The phrase was first coined by Angela R. Garber. Further criticisms of the cognitive effects of X have been expounded by others, for example, Edward Tufte (2006) and Kalyuga et al. (1991). Wright (2009) suggests X is a convenient prop for poor speakers, and it elevates style over substance; and that these things contribute to its popularity.<br />X hell has the same meaning as "____": the tedium some people report on sitting through X sets that are too long or where presenters fall foul of other pitfalls, such as overly complex visuals, excessive use of X's features or plain reading of the text.<br />
  4. 4. Death by powerpoint<br />
  5. 5. 2<br />X is an extracellular matrix-like retinal protein first described in 2008 in Japan by Shigeru Sato et al. The protein is colocalized with both dystrophin and dystroglycan at the ribbon synapses.<br />X is a dystroglycan-interacting protein which has an essential role in the precise interactions between the photoreceptor ribbon synapse and the bipolar dendrites.<br />The name of this "nimble" protein was inspired due to X's "lightning-fast moves and shocking electric effects".<br />

  7. 7. 3<br />X is a research centre situated on the outskirts of Megakat City. X is home to the most intelligent minds of the age and is responsible for nearly all the technology used in the world. So, X is a frequent target for attackers that want to steal these secrets or steal projects.<br />X is also home to Mac and Molly, as well as semi-sentient beings that are capable of self healing and matter assimilation.<br />

  9. 9. 4<br />X was a civilian who volunteered for service. X proved to be an extremely capable field operative, eventually becoming one of the Allies' most important assets, receiving orders directly from Gunther von Esling, the Allied commander. X appears on a significant number of Allied forces' missions, especially during their assault on Moscow.<br />X appears on the battlefield as a commando capable of taking down entire groups of enemy infantry and instantly destroying any building at point blank range. However, X only attacks when ordered to and does not defend from enemy troops unless fired upon first. X's appearance on the map is marked by a loud snickering laugh heard by all.<br />

  11. 11. 5<br />In engineering, fiction, or thought experiments, X is any extremely rare, costly, or physically impossible material needed to fulfill a given design for a given application. For example, a pulley made of X might be massless and frictionless. However, if used in a nuclear rocket, X would be light, strong at high temperatures, and resistant to radiation damage. The concept of X is often applied flippantly or humorously.<br />X can also refer to any rare but desirable material used to motivate a conflict over its possession, making it a MacGuffin. Like the gold in westerns such as The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the material may also have technical uses, but only the value is crucial to the plot. Examples are dilithium in Star Trek' and X in Y, a mineral valued at "20 million a kilo".<br />

  13. 13. 6<br />YKK is a japanese company that manufactures ___. Although they established a strong hold in the global market early, and are suppliers for almost all the major and minor brands in the world, their image is not high profile due to the 'placement' of their product.<br />What does YKK make?<br />(Side note: You have used a YKK product at least once in your life)<br />(Less useful Side note: If you have a girlfriend, ask her. Chances are, she knows. Nudge nudge, wink wink, 'placement')<br />
  14. 14. YKK – ZIPPERS<br />
  15. 15. 7<br />Although the X is not dominant, it has become easier to access in the computer age, being included with all major operating systems (such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and BSD). It is also supported at the hardware level by some high-end ergonomic systems. X studied letter frequencies and the physiology of people’s hands and created a layout to adhere to these principles:<br /> * Letters should be typed by alternating between hands.<br /> * For maximum speed and efficiency, the most common letters and digraphs should be the easiest to type. This means that they should be on the home row, which is where the fingers rest, and under the strongest fingers.<br /> * The least common letters should be on the bottom row, which is the hardest row to reach.<br /> * The right hand should do more of the typing, because most people are right-handed.<br /> * Digraphs should not be typed with adjacent fingers.<br /> * Stroking should generally move from the edges of the board to the middle. An observation of this principle is that, for many people, when tapping fingers on a table, it is easier going from little finger to index than vice versa.<br />

  23. 23. 11<br />A message board thread titled ‘Ways to cope with the depression of X being intangible' has received thousand of replies. They report finding life “flat,” “grey,” and “lacking meaning” after taking off their glasses. They claim difficultly in returning to their formerly interesting lives. Some mention contemplating suicide, hoping to be reborn into an X-like world.<br />Jo Piazza for On the fan forum site "____ Forums," The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about ____.<br />Here are just a few of the ways people are coping on<br />"I just watched avatar a few weeks ago and I'm feeling depressed and sad. It's like I want to reach out and be in X. I'd do anything to be in X. I've tried so hard to dream about me being on X but it hasn't worked.“<br />"Ever since I went to see ____ I have been depressed. Watching X made me want to be there. I can't stop thinking about all the things that happened and all of the tears and shivers I got from it. I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to X and the everything is the same as in '____.'“<br />"Because, at this point, there isn't pretty much anything else that can be done. But even that won't take away all of the depression. Because you know you can never actually go to X, as it exists only in our imagination... sigh... :(“<br />Some researchers have coined the term blue fever.<br />

  25. 25. 12<br />Xis a toy shaped like a ____, and is generally yellow. It may be made of rubber or rubber-like material such as vinyl plastic (which is more often used). The X has achieved an iconic status in American pop culture and is often symbolically linked to bathing.<br />In 2001, The Sun reported that Queen Elizabeth II has an X in her bathroom that wears an inflatable crown. The ____ was spotted by a workman who was repainting her bathroom. The story prompted sales of X in the United Kingdom to increase by 80% for a short period.<br />Besides the ubiquitous yellow X with which most people are familiar, there have been numerous variations on the basic theme, including holiday-themed ____, religious ____, dragon ____, "Devil ____" which sport demon-like horns, bride and groom ____, "dead" ____, which float upside down, and many more.<br />

  27. 27. 13<br />X is a humanoid robot designed to look like a human female, as compared to an android modeled after a male. The term X was coined by Gwyneth Jones in her 1985 novel Divine Endurance to describe a robot slave character in a futuristic China, that is judged by her beauty. The term is not common, however, with android being used to refer to both "genders" of robot. The word fembot (female robot) has also been used.<br />X have also been used as a metaphor in feminist discourse, as part of cyborg feminism, representing female physical strength and freedom from the expectation to reproduce.<br />Female-appearing robots have also appeared in real-life, with early constructions being crude. The first X was produced by Sex Objects Ltd, a British company, for use as a "sex-aid". It was called simply "36C", from her chest measurement, and had a 16-bit microprocessor and voice synthesiser that allowed primitive responses to speech and push button inputs.<br />

  31. 31. 15<br />X, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA is a British theoretical physicist, whose world-renowned scientific career spans over 40 years. His books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity and he is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and in 2009 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.<br />X was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge for thirty years, taking up the post in 1979 and retiring on 1 October 2009.<br />At school, X was passing, but his unimpressive study habits resulted in a final examination score on the borderline between first and second class honours, making an "oral examination" necessary. One of his professors said of the oral examination:<br /> And of course the examiners then were intelligent enough to realize they were talking to someone far more clever than most of themselves.<br />X was in the news in July 2004 for presenting a new theory about _____ which goes against his own long-held belief about their behaviour, thus losing a bet he made with Kip Thorne and John Preskill of Caltech. Classically, it can be shown that information crossing the _____ is lost to our universe, and that thus all _____ are identical beyond their mass, electrical charge and angular velocity (the "no hair theorem"). The problem with this theorem is that it implies the _____ will emit the same radiation regardless of what goes into it, and as a consequence that if a pure quantum state is thrown into a _____, an "ordinary" mixed state will be returned. This runs counter to the rules of quantum mechanics and is known as the _____ information paradox.<br />

  33. 33. 16<br />X is Japanese for Peregrine Falcon, a bird that often serves as a metaphor for speed due to its vertical hunting dive, or stoop, speed of 180 to 240 miles per hour (290 to 390 km/h), the fastest of any bird. In particular, the choice of name was made due to the fact that the peregrine falcon preys on blackbirds, which reflected the intent of the original X to unseat the Super Blackbird as the world's fastest production _____. Eventually, the X managed to surpass the Super Blackbird by at least a full 10 miles per hour (16 km/h).<br />

  35. 35. 17<br />X was founded in 1943 by 17-year-old Y in Sweden and it is owned by a Dutch-registered foundation controlled by his family. X is an amalgamation of his name, the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd), and his home parish (Agunnaryd, in Småland, South Sweden).<br />X is privately-held; it is a products retailer that sells flat pack furniture, accessories, and bathroom and kitchen items. The company, which pioneered flat-pack design furniture at affordable prices, is now the world's largest.<br />

  37. 37. 18<br />Y are led by a Council of 12 members consisting of the most powerful and wise members of the orders. Y are bound to a code of morality and justice. They sometimes moderate peace negotiations between planets and, if necessary, engage in fighting to resolve unrest. They have a strict hierarchy to be followed:<br />Initiate / Apprentice / Knight / Master / Council Member / Grand Master<br />In their later history, members of the Brotherhood of Darkness, their opposition, stopped taking the ceremonial title of "___". Bane brought back the tradition to use the title "___", meaning "Lord" in the X language. He claimed this title when he decided to purge the X and bring about the "Rule of Two" to set the hierarchy pattern for future X.<br />

  39. 39. 19<br />X's design was based on a conception of the god Mars. "That was the uniform that Mars wore – that helmet and skirt. Since he had no mouth, we had to convey that he was speaking totally through his movements. It demanded a kind of expressive body mechanics."<br />X hails from the planet Mars, but is often found elsewhere. He is often accompanied by his dog "K-9," and sometimes by other creatures.<br />X wears a Roman soldier's uniform (a reference to Mars being the Roman god of war) with old-fashioned basketball shoes. The crest of his helmet appears, to resemble an ancient Greek hoplite's helmet. The appearance of the combination of X's head and helmet allegedly led to Y thinking he was a "bowling ball wearing a spittoon". X has a timid, nasal voice and often speaks technobabble. He is also known for his trademark quotes "Where is the kaboom?", "Isn't that lovely?", "This makes me very angry, very angry indeed.", and "I am not now, nor have I ever been, a robot."<br />X attempts to destroy the Earth because, as he says, it obstructs his view of Venus, and X has been trying to destroy the Earth for over two millennia. The original reference to "Uranium Pu-36", his weapon of choice changed to "Illudium Q-36" to remove associations with the a-bomb.<br />

The Alpilles far to the right fit to this view, but there is little rapport of the actual scene with the intermediary hills which seem to be derived from a different part of the surroundings, south of the asylum. The cypress tree to the left was added into the composition. Of note is the fact ____ had already, during his time in Arles, repositioned Ursa Major from the north to the south.<br />

  61. 61. 30<br />X was founded in 2004 by Sherrod Degrippo, also known as "Girlvinyl". It characterizes itself as "[d]one in the spirit of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary". The New York Times has characterized it as "an online compendium of troll humor and troll lore" that it labeled a "troll archive". C't, a European magazine for IT-professionals, noted the site's role in introducing newcomers to the culture of /b/ board of 4chan, a notorious Internet forum. An author has said that it is a platform from which to initiate "exchange between the sensitive and the cruel" in order to achieve the "joy of disrupting another’s emotional equilibrium" because it "intentionally disrupts online communities" whose members have an "emotional investment" in them. X defines trolling in terms of doing things "for the lulz" (for laughs), a phrase that it qualifies as "a catchall explanation for any trolling you do".<br />

  65. 65. 32<br />The word X comes from the name given by the London based pharmaceutical company Burroughs Wellcome & Co. to the compressed tablets they marketed as X pills in the late 1880s. Prior to compressed tablets, medicine was usually taken in bulkier powder form. While Burroughs Wellcome & Co. were not the first to derive the technology to make compressed tablets, they were the most successful at marketing them, hence the popularity of the term X in popular culture. The connotation of X was soon applied to other small items and to the "compressed" journalism that condensed stories into a simplified, easily-absorbed format. The label of "X journalism" (1901) preceded the smaller sheet newspapers that contained it (1918).<br />

  67. 67. 33<br />In 1997, 17-year-old student Daniel Malmedahl recorded himself impersonating the noises produced by internal combustion engines. He posted this on a website and caught the attention of a Swedish television researcher, who convinced Daniel to perform the sound live on air. After it debuted on television, recordings of his performance began appearing on peer to peer file sharing networks and various websites under the filename "2TAKTARE.MP3" ("Tvåtaktare" is Swedish for "Two stroker").<br />The sound was adopted as the sound of a formula one car as early as 2001 in the form of "Deng Deng Form" and later "The Insanity Test" both of which were a static background of a Ferrari Formula One car accompanied by the sound. However the sound was later adopted as that of a motorcycle for its most well known format.<br />In late 2003, Malmedahl's fellow Swede Erik Wernquist encountered the sound effect and, not knowing about the previous incarnations of the sound, was inspired to create the 3D animation "The Annoying Thing" to accompany it. Erik used the LightWave 3D modeling application to produce the animation and posted it on his website. The animation was a popular attraction at Erik's website, but the sound was credited to "Anonymous". Eventually, word reached Daniel that his impressions had been used in a now well-known animation. He contacted Erik, apparently giving an impromptu performance to confirm his claims. Erik was convinced, and gave credit to Daniel for his creation. They soon created X.<br />Id X.<br />

Haggerty (employees of GSI) and Eugene McDermott bought the company. By 1951, its Labouratory and Manufacturing division, with its defense contracts, was growing faster than GSI's Geophysical division. Therefore the company was reorganized and renamed X . ( named after the location of the company)<br /> In 1982, Rod Canion, Jim Harris and Bill Murto, three senior managers from X started the company Y , <br /> which was popular for the compatiblity and quality of its products .<br /> Y was later taken over by another company Z and went on to<br /> become the largest technology company in the world.<br />
