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.

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. ANSWER:
