Hi,

#8507. When is the 'International Day of the Girl Child' observed? (The observation supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women and forced child marriage.)

#8508. When is the 'International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples' observed? (The International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is observed each year to raise awareness and protect the rights of the world's indigenous population. This event also recognizes the achievements and contributions that indigenous people make to improve world issues such as environmental protection. It was first pronounced by the United Nations General Assembly in December 1994, marking the day of the first meeting of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights in 1982.)

Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#8509. Name the Austrian chemist and mineralogist born in Olomouc, Moravia (26 November 1802 – 15 April 1875). His son Leopold Schrötter Ritter von Kristelli (1837–1908) was a noted laryngologist.

As a chemist he conducted research involving reactions of metals with ammonia at higher temperatures, and performed investigations of substances such as amber, idrialite, ozokerite, asphalt and dopplerite. He also investigated the reactive behavior of potassium in liquid nitrous oxide, of phosphorus and antimony in liquid chlorine, and of iron towards oxygen at very low temperatures. In 1845 he discovered a process for preparing red phosphorus, a development which led to the invention of the safety match.

#8510. Name the British-American inventor, practical experimenter, and professor of music (16 May 1830 – 22 January 1900)  known for his work on the printing telegraph and the microphone.

In 1855 he patented a printing telegraph. He moved back to London in 1857 and further pursued experimentation and invention, coming up with an improved carbon microphone in 1878. In 1879 he identified what seemed to be a new phenomenon during his experiments: sparking in one device could be heard in a separate portable microphone apparatus he had set up.

Hi,

#8511. Name the Russian-American inventor, engineer, and pioneer of television technology(July 29 [O.S. July 17] 1888 – July 29, 1982). He invented a television transmitting and receiving system employing cathode ray tubes. He played a role in the practical development of television from the early thirties, including charge storage-type tubes, infrared image tubes and the electron microscope.

#8512. Name the early German engine designer and industrialist  (9 February 1846 – 29 December 1929). During the 1890s he was hailed in France, then the world centre for car production, as the "King of Designers".

From the late 19th century he, together with Gottlieb Daimler, developed light, high-speed internal combustion engines suitable for land, water, and air use.

Hi,

#8513. Lorenzo Romano Amedeo Carlo Avogadro, Count of Quaregna and Cerreto (9 August 1776 – 9 July 1856) was an Italian scientist, most noted for his contribution to molecular theory now known as Avogadro's law, which states that equal volumes of gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure will contain equal numbers of molecules.

What is Avogadro constant?

#8514. Name the English engineer and inventor who designed motorcycle, auto, and aero-engines (1887–1969).

His biggest seller was selling patents for gambling machines, although he lost all the money he made in further business deals. He later concentrated on toroidal internal-combustion engines. He produced a long list of inventions and designs, although very few achieved commercial success.
