MAGNI, A Collegiate Quizbowl Tournament for Fall 2011 Questions by UCSD (Chris Chiego, Auroni Gupta, Andrew Honda, Vicky Hwang, Rohan Mehta, Peicong Dong), Yale (Matt Jackson, Kevin Koai, John Lawrence), and Jerry Vinokurov Organized and Brought to You by Auroni Gupta, Matt Jackson, and John Lawrence Packet Two Tossups 1. The first poem of one of this author’s collections describes the impressions of a newborn baby, declaring that it will be years before the baby thinks, “How pinchy is my room!” while its second section is a mock-epic that precedes a final section entitled “The Womanhood.” One poem by this author describes people for whom “‘Dream’ makes a giddy sound, not strong / Like ‘rent,’” and who dream to get into lukewarm water. In addition to “kitchenette building,” she wrote of the “beads and receipts and dolls and cloths” that fill the “rented back room” occupied by the title figures of another poem. Another short poem describes a group of seven pool players who “Jazz June” and “Die soon.” For 10 points, name this American poet of Annie Allen , A Street in Bronzeville , “The Bean Eaters,” and “We Real Cool.” ANSWER: Gwendolyn Brooks 2. Samuel Arnold produced the first authoritative edition of this piece, which determined the sequence in which the constituent movements are most often played. In this piece, a flauto piccolo , which is called for the trio to a minuet in G minor and for a gigue, is often taken to be a sopranino recorder. The second set of works in this piece includes several alternating fanfares between horns and trumpets, including in a movement in 3/2 time that was the only movement from the second suite included in Hamilton Harty’s compilation, which otherwise only drew from the first suite in F. For 10 points, the famous “Alla Hornpipe” in D is from the second of what three suites written for George I’s barge trip down the Thames by Georg Frideric Handel? ANSWER: Water Music 3. The BHC Company’s synthesis of ibuprofen uses a three-step version of this process to reduce waste. Quarternary ammonium or phosphonium salts partake in this process by acting as detergents to bring ionic salts into the organic phase. The “sacrificial” variety of this process is used to perpetuate it in loop reaction mechanisms known as this process’s “cycles.” For the “bio,” “homogeneous,” and “heterogeneous,” varieties, the turnover number quantifies the efficiency of this process differently. Through various means, such as by phase-transfer, protonation or deprotonation of functional groups, and stabilizing reaction intermediates, this process lowers activation energy. For 10 points, identify this process by which a namesake substance increases the rate of a reaction.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
