High on Protein and Taste

X is a breakfast cereal, marketed primarily as a low-fat cereal that can be eaten to help one lose weight. It advocates a special diet with the goal of losing six pounds in two weeks.
X is also used as a slang term to refer to a dissociative anaesthetic used on both humans (typically in young burn victims) and animals, with effects similar to those of PCP or DXM and may be used as a date-rape drug.

OK.

This is slightly more convoluted than usual. So instructions:

This one is a what you see is what you get kinda connect,but you have to be specific to the characters,not the actor playing the character. The connect has 5 parts(1,2,3,4,5).Each part may or may not have different parts(1a,1b,1c,2a,2b,2c and so on).If the same part has two pictures, then they point to the same thing.

Also all parts belonging to one question no.are connected. 😀

So you gotta get the answer for each part(a,b..),the connect for each question no.(1,2…) and the overall connect.

  • Children were referred to as epsilons (because in mathematics, particularly calculus, an arbitrarily small positive quantity is commonly denoted by the Greek letter (ε))
  • Women were “bosses”
  • Men were “slaves”
  • People who stopped doing mathematics had “died”
  • People who physically died had “left”
  • Alcoholic drinks were “poison”
  • Music was “noise”
  • People who had married were “captured”
  • People who had divorced were “liberated”
  • To give a mathematical lecture was “to preach”
  • To give an oral exam to a student was “to torture” him/her.
  • This person also gave names to countries – USA was samland, Israel was isreal, Soviet Union was joedem – named after Stalin.

Hot Brakes?

Junior Johnson was a pioneer in his own right during his run in NASCAR. He discovered drafting as a strategy to reduce drag drastically, for one.
Another innovation was brought on by his friend in the aerospace industry, who wanted him to try out a new material. Amazed by its light weight and strength and because of the rules of NASCAR, he was using it in the late 60’s before anyone else.However NASCAR banned its use when they saw his brake discs glowing red from use, thinking it would cause a tire fire.
What material?

Keeping It Sharp

When the first atom was split during the early days of Manhattan project, the safety of all the people involved somehow rested on the shoulders of a professional woodsman. Specifically his axe. He was asked to swiftly cut a rope when hollered. To the other end of the rope was a cadmium strip with a lead weight attached at the bottom.

The woodsman was asked to cut the rope asap when he heard the word _____.Doing this would drop the cadmium strip in place (the core of the reactor), ready to absorb the neutrons, and putting the reactor in a safe condition.

When asked what he word meant, Fermi replied ______ ___ ____ ___ ___.

Although the methods have changed and it’s done electronically now, the term has stuck. Fill in the blanks.

Suck on this!

The title may be a bit misleading, but …….whatever.

This disease is widespread in most tropical and subtropical regions of the world and may actually be world’s no. 1 killer. But some Australian scientists may have finally come up with a cure. The microbe responsible for the disease lives in the red blood cells which are full of salt. Therefore it needs a system to get rid of it. The scientists attacked the molecular pump/the protein that makes the pump that filters the salt out of their bodies.  The drug attacks the salt pump and disables it, causing the parasite to fill up with salt and die.The parasite evolves quickly and renders drugs ineffective. So its necessary to attack it at such a basic level. Current drugs combine older drugs together or are altered chemically. This approach is the newest in 20 years and might actually work.

The carrier – though having absolutely no purpose in ecology other than annoying us – is still going to be around.

The disease and the parasite if you will.
