  2. 2. STARRED QUESTIONS: 16) *** This major brand was inspired by Thai product: "Krating Daeng". In Malaysia, this products slogan is "Bullleh" which literally means - "can be done" which is different from its famous slogan used in international advertising. This company owns Leipzig- a football team, A F1 team (which has high rate of success in recent years), and several other regional football, hockey, and Formula one teams. On March 17, 2012 -- its co-founder died. ID the product, and the recently deceased founder. 17) *** In 1968, X founded X Ltd., a coat shop in the York Hotel in New York City, with $10,000. Legend has it that a year later a buyer from Bonwit Teller got off the elevator on the wrong floor, and ended up placing a $50,000 order. It is more likely though, that X showed his work to Bonwit Teller staff, which led to his first collection: a line of mens and womens coats featured at the New York City store. In 1969, he, who was later described as "the supreme master of minimalism," appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine. By 1971, sportswear, classic blazers as well as lingerie were added to his womens collection portfolio. Which fashion magnate had such an accidental and yet such a humble beginning? 18) *** In 1757, the Empress Maria Theresa created an Order named after herself. While not actually awarded for disobedience to orders, the Order could only be won by "successful military acts of essential impact to a campaign that were undertaken on [the officers] own initiative, and might have been omitted by an honorable officer without reproach," which certainly includes a clever disobedience to orders. The Order was awarded until 1918, when the empire that awarded it collapsed. What country honored its officers with the Military Order of Marie Theresa?
