Round 19 ~ Tuesday (from last week, finally ...)

OK. Here's that Round that I was unable to research, compose or post from before. A rather gloomy theme, I reckon - all the questions involve a notable person who died in 2009.

1. Ramaswamy Venkataraman passed away on January 27 at 98. In a very long life he served as an Indian lawyer, freedom-fighter and politician - also as a Union minister and as the 8th President of India.Venkataraman was born in Tanjore district, Madras Presidency. In his youth, he was an activist of the Indian independence movement and participated in the Quit India Movement as well. Venkataraman was elected to Lok Sabha (or "House of the People" - the directly elected lower house of the Parliament of India) four times and served as Union Finance Minister and Defence Minister. In 1984, he was elected Vice-President and in 1987, he became President of India, serving from 1987 to 1992. Venkataraman died at the Army Research and Referral Hospital, New Delhi due to multiple organ failure. To get started, name any Finance Minister of India who served after Ramaswamy Venkataraman.

2. On February 6 an especially talented (but perhaps not so well-known, in a *big movie star* sense) actor died. RIP, Mr. James Whitmore. His career stretched over 50 years and, during the course of it, he won both the Golden Globe award and an Emmy (for his work on TV's "The Practice"). One of his later films is likely the best known to a 'new' generation - he had an important supporting role in The Shawshank Redemption (1994) as Brooks Hatlen, who hanged himself after being unable to adjust to life after being released from a long stretch in prison. Two earlier projects brought Whitmore Oscar nominations, though -- the first being Battleground in 1949 and then later for Give 'Em Hell, Harry! (1975), where he was outstanding in a one-man show playing the blustery former US President Harry Truman. There is a quote from that 1975 film (as per IMDb) that starts with Truman saying "Say, Rose, there's a story going around about me these days ..." Pick any word shown in the rest of it with 6 or more letters in it.

3. A bizarre turn of events happened in March that, as things went, took the life of another noteworthy thespian - this one taken at a sadly young age. Natasha Jane Richardson was born in 1963 and was just 45 at the time of her unexpected death - the result of an otherwise NOT extraordinary accident while skiing. What looked like just a minor tumble happened in such a way as to cause her a fatal, finally, brain injury. Richardson, the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and wife of Liam Neeson, is widely recognized as the mother in 1998's The Parent Trap but some of us remember her performances as Patty Hearst, or as a doctor in Nell (1994) or as Vanessa Bell in The Hours, too. A highlight of her career, though, was her award-winning turn as Sally Bowles in Broadway's Cabaret, for which she was given a Drama Desk award as Outstanding Actress in a Musical in 1998. I need to know an actress who was nominated for that very same award (but who DID NOT WIN) in the year that Richardson won hers. Or, if you will, the year before ... or the year after.

4. James Graham Ballard passed away April 19; he was 78. An English novelist and short story writer, he was a very prominent part of the science fiction *New Wave* movement. His best-known novels are the controversial "Crash", spinning a wildly original (albeit slightly 'odd', when described briefly) tale of sexual fetishism connected to automobile accidents, and the loosely autobiographical "Empire of the Sun", about his childhood internment by the Japanese during World War II after the invasion and conquest of Shanghai, where Ballard was born. Both books were adapted into films, the former by David Cronenberg and the latter by Stephen Spielberg. His work was so compelling that the adjective *Ballardian* entered the language, defined as 'suggestive of the conditions described in J.G. Ballard's novels and stories, especially bleak man-made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments.' Ballard's death came after a three-year battle with prostate cancer. In 1982 J.G. Ballard wrote a collection of 10 short stories called "Myths of the Near Future". Please tell me the name of one of those stories.

5. Jack French Kemp (July 13, 1935–May 2, 2009) was an American politician, first and foremost, but got his initial taste of fame as a professional football player. In the 1996 election he was Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole's running mate for Vice President, having previously contended for the presidential nomination in the 1988 Republican primaries. Kemp began his political career with nine terms as a Congressman for Western New York (from '71-'89), and subsequently served as Housing Secretary in the George H.W. Bush administration. As an economic conservative, Kemp advocated low taxes and supply-side policies (sounds sensible, yes?), but his positions spanned the social spectrum -- ranging from his conservative opposition to abortion to his more libertarian stances advocating immigration reform. He passed away just a few months after publicly announcing he had cancer in January of this year. On the (Biographical) Directory of the United States Congress, there are eight highlights/achievements listed as per Jack Kemp's life, on his page there. Kindly tell me one of 'em, OK?

This Round will close (I guess?) Tuesday, June 2. At noontime, or thereabouts .

Round 29 Friday

Todays round is dedicated to one of my many pets, so this will be the world of cats round.

1. The cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or house cat to distinguish it from other felines and felids, is a small predatory carnivorous species of crepuscular mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and its ability to hunt vermin, snakes, scorpions, and other unwanted household pests. It has been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years. From the wiki page, please give me any name in the Scientific classification of a cat.

2. Each cat obviously has their own personality, just like a dog or a human, but it is also said, that sometimes they have the strangest behaviour patterns. Many people, that are not that familiar with cats, always ask why does a cat do that. From this page , please give me a question that starts with Why do…

3. TICA The International Cat Association, is the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats. TICA recognizes fifty-five breeds of cats for championship competition as of 2009, in addition, the number of breeds can change as new breeds are developed. From the TICA site, go to the “Breeds” section and please give me the name of an Advanced new breed or a Preliminary new breed of cat.

4. The CFA International Cat Show, often described as "the Rolls Royce of cat shows," is the largest cat show event held in the Western Hemisphere. This global event annually attracts cat fanciers from North and South America, Europe, Hawaii, Japan and Bermuda all competing to earn a place in cat fancy history. In 2008 the CFA held their show in Atlanta Georgia. From this page please give me the name of a cat who won either a Championship Longhair or Shorthair award,no kittens or premiership cats please.

5.People love to photograph their cats especially when they are caught in funny situations. From this link , go to either page 35 or 41, and give me the caption under the photograph. (If it’s too long summarize.

This round will finish on Wednesday the 3rd of June, noonish FT time. If you have any queries I am just a meaow away. In the meantime have a great weekend.

Round 30 - Saturday 30th May


1. From here please give me one of the bizarre animals that are new to science. (12 to choose from, but not the owl on the last page please)

2. I went to School at Blairmore (It closed a few years ago), that was originally built for Alexander Geddes who is the great-great grandfather of Tory party leader David Cameron (David's father was born there). Mr. Geddes made his fortune in the meat and grain markets, fortunatly he had bought a fire proof safe, so his fortune survived the great fire of Chicago in 1871. Blairmore house was built by local architect Alexander Marshall Mackenzie in 1884. Please give me any School or College that was built by Alexander Marshall Mackenzie. You might find this site helpful.

3. One film that portrayed the Chicago Fire was "In Old Chicago" (1937) that won a couple of oscars including the one for the best assistant director. Name the any movie where Robert Webb was either the assistant director or second unit director.

4. Name a famous living tree in North America.

5. Name a Persian Rug/Carpet weaving city.

Round will close noon (FT Time) on Thursday.
