ANSWER: Krishna 2. One of this man's works examined such diverse forms of expression as a child's drawing and the "specter of pure language," The Prose of the World. His first work was a repudiation of behavioral psychology and defined existence as consisting of physical, vital, and mental components. In addition to The Structure of Behavior, he dissed Arthur Koestler and Leon Trotsky in Humanism and Terror: An Essay on the Communist Problem. His most famous work argued for dissolution of prejudices that prevent people from experiencing "things" themselves, and this man worked with Sartre as an editor of Les Temps Modernes. FTP, name this twentieth century French philosopher, author of The Phenomenology of Perception. ANSWER: Maurice Merleau-Ponty 3. In one poem he asks that you "Don't go far off, not even for a day" and "may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach," and according to the title, he craves your mouth, voice, and hair. The speaker of one of this man's poems sees the title creature "Among the market greens/ a bullet from the ocean depths," and in a romantic poem he compares open kisses to drinking turpentine. Among his poems are ones dedicated "to a Large Tuna," "to Salt," and "to Sadness," and this poet addresses someone into which everything sinks in The Song of Despair.

FTP, name this Byzantine emperor, the last leader of the Eastern Roman Empire. ANSWER: Justinian I or the Great (accept Flavius Petrus Sabbatius Iustinianus) 5. Some of the responsibility for the protection for this region recently shifted from Georgia to Bulgaria, and its namesake café was bombed and then seized for government use. An arch consisting of two hands holding gigantic crossed swords known as the Hands of Victory is located in this area, as is the so-called Assassin's Gate or Golden Dome. It contains such monuments as its country's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and it comprises about four square miles. In the southern part of this area, the United States has constructed a permanent embassy. It was mostly established in 2003, after soldiers captured the Republican Palace and surrounding buildings. FTP, name this allegedly safe part of Baghdad, contrasted with the unsafe "Red Zone." ANSWER: The Green Zone (also accept International Zone or Emerald City) 6. Coombs tests detect these bodies bound to erythrocytes, and a technique that uses these entities is ELISA. These molecules have a namesake fold, in which two beta sheets are held together by amino acid charges. These adaptable molecules can somatically recombine in a process called V(D)J recombination and are also capable of changing isotype by altering conformation of their heavy chains. Like enzymes, they operate via a a socalled "lock-and-key" mechanism, as verified by Linus Pauling. FTP, name these characteristically y-shaped immune molecules exploited in vaccination and produced by B cells in response to specific antigens. ANSWER: antibodies (or immunoglobulins)

Early actions included Meinhardt Schomberg’s defeat of Neill O’Neill’s dragoons at Roughgrange. Both Meinhardt’s father and George Walker, the Defender of Derry, would later die in this battle. Though the conflict would not end until Godert de Ginkell crushed the forces of the Marquis de St. Ruth at Aughrim the next year, this battle was the first important victory for the League of Augsburg. Directly preceding the first siege of Limerick and taking place outside of the coast town of Drogheda, FTP, name this battle, in which William of Orange drove James II’s army back over an eponymous Irish river. ANSWER: Battle of the Boyne TB. In a general RLC Circuit, this occurs when the reactance of the capacitor cancels the reactance of the inductor, which maximizes the parallel impedence. In a damped system, the degree to which this occurs is inversely proportional to the quality factor. If the system is undamped, the frequency at which this occurs reduces to the natural frequency of the oscillator, called the pure variety of this effect, and the amplitude of oscillation of the system increases without bound. FTP, name this physical effect, which explains how a small amplitude driving force at the natural frequency of a system can have drastic consequences. ANSWER: amplitude resonance (accept “electrical amplitude resonance”)
