CALIFORNIAN, STANLEY LORD
SS CALIFORNIAN COULD HAVE AVERTED THE DEATH OF MANY MORE FROM
TITANIC AS IT MISSED OBVIOUS MESSAGES.
Once Evans’ message had reached the crewmen of Titanic, the warning was
allegedly dismissed by an angry and tired Jack Phillips, who had tapped out: “Shut
up! Shut up! I am busy. I am working Cape Race.”
The SS Californian, however, will be forever remembered and judged by history after
it failed to promptly respond to the Titanic‘s distress signals, despite being only 20
miles away.
During that period, the SS Californian was under the command of Captain Stanley
Lord. He took command a year earlier, and he found himself and his crew in the
North Atlantic after leaving London on April 5, 1912, embarking on a journey to
Boston. Records suggest that Stanley Lord’s ship happened to be close to empty,
not having any passengers on board.
On the evening of April 14, 1912, the crew of SS Californian noted a number of large
icebergs and, following the captain’s orders, halted for the night at around 10:20 PM.
The captain preferred to remain in that spot for the night and then resume the route
in the early morning.

day, X and his colleague from the Sheffield Shield team, Oscar Wendell
Bill, had been invited to a game against Lithgow. The game was meant
for the inauguration of a new concrete pitch at their oval. It resulted in
the in perhaps the fastest century in terms of overs, following is the
sequence.
• 1st Over — 6, 6, 4, 2, 4, 4, 6, 1 (33, all to X)
• 2nd Over — 6, 4, 4, 6, 6, 4, 6, 4 (40, all to X)
• 3rd Over — 1*, 6, 6, 1, 1*, 4, 4, 6 (27 to X, 2* to Wendell Bill).
Identify X , How long it took for the century, and Province he played for
in this match
AND THE ANSWER IS
Don Bradman scored a hundred in three eight-ball overs, spanning around 18
minutes
As entertainment it was superb, but it hardly stood either batsman in good
stead for the opening match of the Sheffield Shield season the following
Saturday. The pair were dismissed for ducks in the same over from Queensland
fast bowler Eddie Gilbert.
Raymond Benjamin Caldwell, (April 26, 1888 – August 17,
1967), was an American major league pitcher from 1910
to 1921. He was known for throwing the spitball, and he
was one of the 17 pitchers allowed to continue throwing
the pitch after it was outlawed in 1920.
Caldwell was notorious during his playing career for his
addiction to alcohol and partying, he possessed a self-
destructive streak that many of his contemporaries
believed stopped him from reaching his potential. In
1924, Miller Huggins wrote: 'Caldwell was one of the best
pitchers that ever lived, but he was one of those
characters that keep a manager in a constant worry.
If he had possessed a sense of responsibility and balance,
Ray Caldwell would have gone down in history as one of
the greatest of all pitchers.'
Yet, despite his achievements on the field and his antics
off it, Caldwell is perhaps best remembered for X whilst
playing for the Cleveland Indians against the Philadelphia
Athletics in 1919; he refused to leave the game, having
pitched 8.2 innings, and went on to record the final out
for the win.
Identify X
AND THE ANSWER IS
He was hit by a lightning and still went on to pitch the remainder of the
game
X was contested as a team event in the Summer Olympics at every
Olympiad from 1900 to 1920. Originally the competition was entered by
groups called clubs. A country could enter more than one club in the
competition, making it possible for one country to earn multiple medals.
This happened in 1904, when the United States won all three medals, and
in 1908 when the podium was occupied by three British teams. Sweden
was also among the top countries with two medals, one as a member of
the mixed team.
During its time as an Olympic sport, it was considered to be part of the
Olympic athletics programme, although this sport and athletics are now
considered distinct. Following is the overall tally of this Olympic sport.
What is this SPORT?
AND THE ANSWER IS
Tug of war
Despite not playing Baskeball since High School, X was drafted no.
139 by the NBA’s Kansas City Kings after winning the Men’s
Decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

decision he made that made him famous.

Once Evans’ message had reached the crewmen of Titanic, the warning was allegedly dismissed by an angry and tired Jack Phillips, who had tapped out: “Shut up! Shut up! I am busy. I am working Cape Race.” The SS Californian, however, will be forever remembered and judged by history after it failed to promptly respond to the Titanic‘s distress signals, despite being only 20 miles away. During that period, the SS Californian was under the command of Captain Stanley Lord. He took command a year earlier, and he found himself and his crew in the North Atlantic after leaving London on April 5, 1912, embarking on a journey to Boston. Records suggest that Stanley Lord’s ship happened to be close to empty, not having any passengers on board. On the evening of April 14, 1912, the crew of SS Californian noted a number of large icebergs and, following the captain’s orders, halted for the night at around 10:20 PM. The captain preferred to remain in that spot for the night and then resume the route in the early morning. Source: The Vintage News

  • 189. This Question has 2 parts In the early 20th century, the country of France was emerging from the devastating effects of the Dreyfus Affair. The country had been deeply divided over the fate of French Artillery Captain Alfred Dreyfus, who had been accused of selling military secrets to the Germans. The most popular sports newspaper in France at this time was Le Vélo, with over eighty thousand subscribers. Due to the differences of opinion over the guilt or innocence of Captain Dreyfus, a few journalists and businessmen, including Comte Jules-Albert de Dion and Édouard Michelin, courted disgruntled advertisers and started their own newspaper, L’Auto, in 1899. They hired former award-winning cyclist and sports journalist Henri Desgrange as editor. They started something that is a phenomenon still. Due to popularity of the phenomenon, by 1923, issues of L’Auto had increased to 500,000 copies a day. In 1904 Le Vélo ceased its activities and L'Auto eventually transmogrified into L'Équipe in 1944. 1. What is this Phenomenon? 2. For second part , how is the paper linked to the phenomenon memorablia

  • 195. Raymond Benjamin Caldwell, (April 26, 1888 – August 17, 1967), was an American major league pitcher from 1910 to 1921. He was known for throwing the spitball, and he was one of the 17 pitchers allowed to continue throwing the pitch after it was outlawed in 1920. Caldwell was notorious during his playing career for his addiction to alcohol and partying, he possessed a self- destructive streak that many of his contemporaries believed stopped him from reaching his potential. In 1924, Miller Huggins wrote: 'Caldwell was one of the best pitchers that ever lived, but he was one of those characters that keep a manager in a constant worry. If he had possessed a sense of responsibility and balance, Ray Caldwell would have gone down in history as one of the greatest of all pitchers.' Yet, despite his achievements on the field and his antics off it, Caldwell is perhaps best remembered for X whilst playing for the Cleveland Indians against the Philadelphia Athletics in 1919; he refused to leave the game, having pitched 8.2 innings, and went on to record the final out for the win.
