Round 27

Last time around I presented the Hobart College Round. In researching that round, I wound up with several excess questions related to Hobart, but not to Hobart College. So not wanting to waste some decent questions, this will be the Hobart Round.

1. Hobart is the capital of Tasmania, the island state of Australia. Hobart was founded as a penal colony on the Derwent River. Because the Derwent River was one of Australia's finest deepwater ports and was the centre of the Southern Ocean whaling and the sealing trade, it rapidly grew into a major port, with allied industries such as shipbuilding. Hobart now is a city of over 200,000 people and is still an important port. One of its functions is home port for Australian and French Antarctic activities.

Rose Bay High School in Hobart has a live webcam on their site giving you a picture of Hobart, Tasmania. From the Programs/School Sport section of the site, please tell me a sport that is played in Term 3.

2. Hobart, Tasmania was named after Lord Hobart. Specifically this is Robert Hobart, 4th Earl of Buckinghamshire, who served as Secretary of State for War and the Colonies from 1801 to 1804. One of Robert Hobart’s earlier positions was as Member of Parliament for Bramber. Bramber was one of the notorious rotten boroughs that dotted the English political map of the day. A rotten borough was one that because of shifting populations had very few people and therefore the election of representatives could be controlled by a single landlord or major landholder in the area. The Reform Act of 1832 did away with the rotten boroughs. Please tell me the name of one of these rotten boroughs that began with either A or C.

3. Hobart mixers from the Hobart Corporation are considered the Cadillac of restaurant line mixers. Please tell me the model number of one of the mixers in their Legacy line.

4. “Hobart, another literary journal” is a small publication of quirky short stories and interviews. Their website has excerpts from the magazine. From the archives section of the site tell me the name of one of the short stories in the November or December 2008 issues (no interviews please).

5. Clinton T. Hobart is an American painter of still-lifes and portraits. His website features the saying, “Every still-life a portrait, every portrait a still-life.” Take a look at the fruit and vegetable still-lifes on his site and tell me name of one which has a name of more than one word (you have to click on the picture to get the full description of the picture including the name).

The Hobart Round will conclude noonish (FT Time) on Wednesday, April 1. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Round 23 is due to close in just over 25 hours (Sunday noon FT time).

However, at this moment, only 2 players have submitted their answers. I might have to extend the close to wait for more players. I hope to still close on time. I hope that there will be a few more players. I hope that everyone is having a fine weekend.

ROUND 31 - Tuesday

Today being the last day of the month, let's focus on End.

1. "To END All Wars" is a 2001 movie which is a true story about four Allied POW's, from a Scottish regiment, who endure harsh treatment from their Japanese captors during World War II while being forced to build a railroad through the Burmese jungle. I've seen this movie and I thought it was fantastic but very very sad and even cruel at times. I couldn't watch it a second time even if I very much wished to.
** From the IMDb page of "To End All Wars", please pick any character in the movie who has a military rank (Lt., Sgt., etc.).

2. "END is Passion. END is People. END is a Journey." - this is the creed over at END Footwear. Emerging as the green leader of the running shoes industry, END Footwear uses recycled materials in its sneakers without sacrificing functionality or looks.
** From END Footwear's official website, please give me any of their products in the "Men's" section.

3. "The END" is the title of the last episode from Season 5 of the TV series "The X Files" (1993-2002).
** Please find another episode of "The X Files", from Season 5, 6 or 7, whose title starts with "The".

4. World's END is a 251 acre park and conservation area located on a peninsula in Hingham, Massachusetts. In the mid 19th century the peninsula was purchased by John Brewer who, in 1889, commissioned the "father of American landscape architecture" - landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted - to design a residential subdivision there.
** Please name an academic campus (in the US) designed by Frederick Law Omsted.

5. To end , please have a look at The END of the Internet and give me any four letter word to be found in the short, concise text of that page.

Round 31 will be closed on Sunday, around noon Fun Trivia time.
Feel free to message me about any misunderstandig rising from my questions.

Monday Mar 30 – Quiz - Sorry that it’s wayyyy late.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

1) The line “I’ll be back” came from the movie “The Terminator” released in 1984. The movie was a box office success and I thought Mr. Schwarzenegger made a great cyborg. The movie spawned two sequels with a third sequel due to be released later this year. From Imdb, please give me a character from “The Terminator” who does not have an official name. Please do not include the lead character as your answer. Just a note that Imdb mentions one of Mr. Schwarzenegger’s nicknames as “The Governator”.

2) Arnold Schwarzenegger became the 38th governor of California on November 17, 2003 and is still in office. Please name any one of the 10 governors in power before Governor Arnold.

3) Governor Arnold married Maria Shriver, of the Kennedy clan, on 26 April 1986. A former broadcast journalist, Ms. Shriver wrote several books, the first of which is “Ten Things I Wish I’d Known Before I Went Out Into The Real World”. Please name one of the 10 things from the book.

4) The Governor was born on 30 July 1947 in the tiny village of Thal in Austria. Please name a country that shares a border with Austria –OR- a capital city of any of these countries, including Austria. Hint: Wiki may be useful. I tried some online maps but they mostly appear to be out-dated.

5) Please make a 5-letter word from “Schwarzenegger”.

Apologies once again for the lateness of this round. I will try and do better next round. This round will close at midnight (FT time) on Sunday 5 April.

Edited to correct a grammatical mistake in Q4

Since Gats is not around time being and also as I had some spare time, I thought I would jump in with the results tally for March. So here it is:

1) maninmidohio (9 points)
2) Mugaboo (8 points)
3) denni19
..brandz_mygirl
..deepakmr
(7 points each)
4) szabs (6 points)
5) Gatsby722 (4 points)
6) Bikoz (2 points)
7) Skylar7 (1 point)

So, the cumulative points tally for Jan, Feb & March is as follows:

1) maninmidohio (23 points)
2) denni19 (20 points)
3) Mugaboo (19 points)
4) deepakmr (18 points)
5) brandz_mygirl (17 points)
6) szabs (13 points)
7) Gatsby722 (11 points)
8) leelee63 (8 points)
9) deputygary (7 points)
10) PDAZ (3 points)
11) Bikoz
