48. Which occupant of the white houuse once ran up over an excessive, $25,000 in clothing bills? karmaloupster - 11-16-2000 04:30 AM

52. The landmark decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Marbury v Madison 1803 was the first occasion upon which the Court declared an Act of Congress beyond its powers aka unconstitutional.. "a law repugnant to the constitution is void". It was not, however, the first occasion upon which the Court was asked to rule on the validity of an Act of Congress. In the 1790s the Court upheld the validity of an Act - the case concerned the validity of an act levying certain taxes - what is the name of that case? gtho4 - 11-17-2000 03:38 AM

53. Following on from Q52 - the next case in which the Supreme Court declared an Act of Congress void was in the 1850s, but the decision in Marbury v Madison was not referred to when the Court delivered its judgement. It wasn't until a case in the 1890s that the Supreme Court quoted from or referred to the decision of Marbury v Madison, in delivering a judgement in which it declared an Act void. What is the name of that case?

58. The last race run by Phar Lap was over a mile and a quarter (2011m) in Mexico in 1932. The top class field included an American Derby winner, Preakness Stakes winner, a horse which ran 2nd in the Kentucky Derby, and the Louisiana Derby Winner, to name but a few. He was top-weight, and jumped out of the barriers second last. His jockey kept him wide and out of trouble because of the dirt track (as we race on grass in Australia he was not used to having dirt fly up into his face during a race). On the back stretch his jockey let him go and he ran around the entire field and into the lead before the turn into the home straight, then drew away and broke the race record, beating Reveille Boy who came home 2nd and Scimitar who ran 3rd. The winning numbers in that race were 9-4-2. What is the name of the horse which finished fourth, and what was its number?
gtho4 - 11-27-2000 12:00 AM

59. It was the Tue 05-Apr-1932 in the USA when Phar Lap died. Here in Australia it was the morning of Wed 06-Apr-1932 and at 10:30am the High Court of Australia delivered its judgement in a landmark constitutional case. The late morning edition of The Sun newspaper carried news of the decision as the page one lead news item and, in much smaller type in the Stop Press, also on page one, was an unconfirmed report from California that Phar Lap had died, cause of death unknown. In its main afternoon edition The Sun had two page one leads " High Court Verdict Favours Lyons" and "Phar Lap's Mystery Death". This case was subsequently instrumental in the "unprecedented" dismissal of the Lang Government by the Governor of the State of New South Wales. What is the name of this High Court case? gtho4 - 11-27-2000 12:00 AM

63. After the expeditions of Scott and Amundsen, who was the next person to set foot on the south pole? gtho4 - 11-28-2000 09:50 AM

67. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the USA, as it stands today, bears no resemblance to the actual wording resolved by Congress on the first occasion a 2/3rds majority of both houses was achieved (and the resolution was then submitted to the legislatures of the States for their ratification, by 3/4 thereof). What was the wording of the 13th Amendment on that first occasion? (or the first dozen and a half odd words to the word "Congress") gtho4 - 11-29-2000 02:54 AM

Q73. Who is this person? He attended the Continental Congress, he is a signatory to both the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation; and subsequently attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787 but refused to sign off on the dotted line when the document was completed. He served in the first two Congresses, and then as Governor of his State. His biggest claim to fame is, probably, the irregular manner in which the boundaries of the electoral districts in his State were drawn up whilst he was Governor, to favour the party in power. The resulting shapes of the districts were described as very irregular, almost grotesque. What is this person's name?

Q74. When capital gains tax was introduced in Australia on 19-Sep-1985 it applied to assets acquired from that date forward, and assets already held on that date were exempted (these exempt assets were also called grandfathered assets). On 09-Dec-1995 all large companies (as defined) were required, from that date forward, to lodge their accounts with our local Securities Commission and thus have them placed on the public record. However, these new laws did not apply to private companies in existence on that date and which had their annual accounts audited, and continued to have them audited on an annual basis. This continuing relief from lodgement is aka "not required to lodge their annual accounts under the grandfathering provisions of the lodgement law". What is the origin of this terminology grandfathered or grandfathering?
