msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Sep 25 08:06PM

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2013-02-04,
and should be interpreted accordingly. All questions were written
by members of the Night Owls, but have been reformatted and may
have been retyped and/or edited by me. I will reveal the correct
answers in about 3 days.
 
For further information, including an explanation of the """
notation that may appear in these rounds, see my 2022-09-09
companion posting on "Reposted Questions from the Canadian
Inquisition (RQFTCI*)".
 
 
* Game 2, Round 4 - History - The Great Recession
 
This is a round on the 2008 financial crisis, or the Great Recession
as it has come to be known.
 
1. What does MBS stand for?
2. What does TARP stand for?
3. Name the either the US treasury secretary in 2008 or the one
who succeeded him in 2009.
 
4. In US dollars within $50,000,000,000, what was the initial
amount of money allocated to TARP?

6. Which major US auto company claimed that they did not receive
any bailout money during the crisis?
 
7. After Bear Stearns was taken over in May 2008, which investment
bank filed for bankruptcy protection in September 2008?
 
8. Which insurance company initially received $80,000,000,000 in
credit from the US government to deal with its financial
problems?
 
9. The Oscar for Best Documentary Feature of 2010 went to what
movie that tried to explain the crisis?
 
10. Wachovia was the 4th largest bank in the US. Wachovia was
bought out by another bank. Wachovia broke the agreement with
that bank and merged into yet another bank. Name either one
of those other two banks.
 
 
* Game 2, Round 6 - Sports - Trophies of Champions
 
In this round we will give you the name of a trophy and you have to
provide the *league -- or the specific tournament or competition, as
the case may be* -- that the trophy is associated with. For example,
if we said the Stanley Cup, we would be looking for the NHL.
 
1. Claret Jug.
2. Vanier Cup.
3. Webb Ellis Cup.
4. Wanamaker Trophy.
5. Larry O'Brien Cup.
6. Borg-Warner Trophy.
7. Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Willow (bark). 4 for everyone -- Joshua, Dan Tilque, and Dan Blum.
 
I left the original wording intact here, but I'm pretty sure it
should've said "derived from". As I understand it, the willow
contains *salicylic* acid; the Bayer company's great innovation was
to add an acetyl group to the molecule, producing a much lower level
of stomach irritation.

Urine of menopausal nuns. "Women's urine" was sufficient.

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2013-02-04,
and should be interpreted accordingly. All questions were written
by members of the Night Owls, but have been reformatted and may
have been retyped and/or edited by me. I will reveal the correct
answers in about 3 days.
 
For further information, including an explanation of the """
notation that may appear in these rounds, see my 2022-09-09
companion posting on "Reposted Questions from the Canadian
Inquisition (RQFTCI*)".
 
 
* Game 2, Round 1 - Current Events (excerpt)
 
Answer these 2013 questions if you like for fun, but for no points.
 
1. Which film won the top honor for best overall cast performance
at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards last week?
 
2. Who replaced Hillary Clinton as the US secretary of state
last week?
 
 
* Game 2, Round 2 - Science - Drugs from Plants or Animals
 
About 50% of the prescription drugs used """today""" were originally
extracted from plant or animal sources.
 
1. Aspirin or ASA was originally extracted from which plant source?
 
2. Taxol, also known by its generic name paclitaxel, is one of the
most important cancer drugs. Discovered at the National Cancer
Institute in the US in 1962, it was launched by Bristol Myers
in 1992. For the first 20 years of its development it could
only be obtained from the bark and leaves of which tree?
 
3. Premarin is an estrogen-containing drug that that was one
of the first to treat symptoms of menopause also called hormone
replacement therapy or HRT. When it was first introduced to
the market, it was extracted from what?
 
4. Penicillin was the first antibiotic and played a major role
in ending the reign of infectious diseases as the leading cause
of death. Penicillin was discovered in 1928 by Scottish doctor
Alexander Fleming. He discovered and isolated it from a common
contaminant of his bacterial cultures. What contaminant?
 
5. In the 1890s scientists at Bayer discovered and marketed
a powerful painkiller that competed with Aspirin. This drug,
extracted from a common red flower, had a trademarked name: what?
 
6. One of the most potent nerve toxins known to mankind has killed
millions of people who have eaten spoiled food contaminated with
the bacteria that produce this toxin. This nerve toxin has
been purified and is used routinely today in medical clinics.
What is the trademarked name of this drug?
 
7. A chemical found in the bark of the cinchona tree was used
by Quechua Indians of Peru and Bolivia to fight infection by
the malaria parasite. British colonials in India added it
to a medicinal water to fight malaria, and combined it with a
little gin to moderate the taste -- the origin of gin-and-tonic.
This drug is still an important anti-malarial today. What is it?
 
8. Hockey celebrity Don Cherry """swears by""" ColdFX. This product
was a groundbreaking over-the-counter cold medicine, since it
was the first natural health product sold in Canada to back up
its claims with proper clinical trials carried out at university
hospitals. ColdFX is actually an extract of which plant?
 
9. The fertility drugs Menotropin, Menupur, and Repronex contain
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) to stimulate maturation
of eggs and ovulation in women having difficulty in becoming
pregnant. The FSH in these drugs until relatively recently
was commercialy obtained from what source?
 
10. Galantamine is a drug used to treat the early stages of
Alzheimer's disease. It was discovered in the 1950s in Bulgaria
and was produced from the bulbs of which plant family?

> Dr. Drake, Dr. Tisdale, and Dr. Brown of the Hospital for

Pablum.
 
It's a baby food. Malnutrition used to be a major cause of infant
morality in the early 20th century, even in developed countries.
(Typo from the original question sheet left in for fun.)

Toronto Huskies.

Taddle Creek.
 
This was easy if you knew about Taddle Creek Rd., a dead-end street
that extended into the southeast part of the campus, but I learned
when I posted the round in 2013 that the area's been pedestrianized
and the street, too, no longer exists.

Garrison Creek.
 
It's not the fort that moved; it's the lakeshore.

He became mayor, first of North York and then of Toronto after the
"megacity" amalgamation, serving altogether from 1973 to 2003.
