Save our planet.

I suppose everyone knows whose ad pic 1 is. Good.  Lets call them X, and proceed.

X recently came out with a decently brilliant tech-idea Y, an icon of which is shown in pic 2. Y is just a tweaked form of the industry standard Z.

If adopted by the majority, Y can prove very beneficial as this post’s title suggests.

Knowing the usual set of X’s activities, deduce Y and Z.  Also put funda as to why Y is claimed to be so awesome.

Of weird instruments and Funky covers

instrument_album

1. Odd-looking instrument W, the name of which, is derived from words that mean “to speak/chatter” in its language.
The word W is also a popular nickname given to a Fighter Jet, since people think the jet looks like the instrument.
W?

2. X is a music album by an American indie-rock Band, which uses a story-based theme and references a popular astronaut Y in two of its songs.

Songs from X use sounds from W ( the instrument, not the fighter jet),
and one of the songs Z is a Folk tune, popular in the Computer/TV/Brick Gaming context.
X, Y, Z?

W, Y, and Z are from the same country. X can be derived by staring at the album cover 🙂

I’m sure Late. Senator X would’ve scoffed at the representation of  Y as shown in this figure.

Put as much funda as seems fit.

P.S : Don’t worry too much about the tilted photos.
They’re an attempt to keep Leila Boujnane and Paul Bloore away.

Who is the mechanical engineer shown in the pic, and how does he fit into this equation?

Update: Don’t give me the funda for the two manholes, Just use that funda to think how the engineer is involved with this problem.

All you need is some orientation

A celebrity in the field of Biochemistry, and a knight to boot,

this man X created a technique which has something to do with pic1. The technique is thusly, named after him. Let’s call it X1.

sir_biochemist

sir_biochemist

structure_pic1

structure_pic1

Now, the prankster scientists in the field started naming other techniques as a pun on X1.

So, a technique based on pic2 was called Y ( which had some relevance in naming, in fact)
and one based on pic3 was called Z ( no connection whatsoever, done just for kicks) and so on.
The list continues for some 2 more techniques.

structure_pic2

structure_pic2

structure_pic3

structure_pic3

hints:
1. pic1, pic2, and pic3 are generic representations.
2. pic2 has three subtypes, one of which is a courier of sorts.

X, X1.
Y, Z, please.
