-gry puzzle

The -gry puzzle is a popular word puzzle that asks for the third English word that ends with the letters -gry other than angry and hungry. Specific wording varies but the puzzle has no clear answer, as there are no other common English words that end in -gry. Interpretations of the puzzle suggest. Of these, countless trick question variants and obscure English words have been proposed; the lack of a conclusive answer has ensured the enduring popularity of the puzzle, it has become one of the most asked word puzzles. The ultimate origin and original form of the puzzle is unknown, but it was popularized in 1975, starting in the New York area, has remained popular into the 21st century. Various similar puzzles exist; the most notable is "words ending in -dous", popular since the 1880s. Various proposed answers exist, stating that the question is one of the following: A hoax – there is no answer, its purpose is to frustrate. A trick question, with various answers depending on precise wording. A sincere question asking for an obscure word, most proposed as aggry, meagry, or puggry A corruption of a more straightforward word puzzle, namely a word containing the sequence "gry", though not at the end, in which case the answer is gryphon, uncommon but in use.

This topic is both to lovers of word puzzles and lovers of words. Intriguingly, there are members of the latter group who have little or no interest in the puzzle, per se. For both groups, much of the appeal lies in the quest, either to trace the origin of the puzzle or compile a complete list of words ending in -gry. More the word hangry—a portmanteau of'hungry' and'angry'—has been used to refer to an irritable state induced by lack of food. Oxford Dictionaries added hangry on 27 August 2015, the full Oxford English Dictionary added hangry in 2018. There are anecdotal reports of various forms of the puzzle dating to earlier. However, the first documented evidence is from early 1975 in the New York metropolitan area, the puzzle gained popularity in this year; the most source is the talk show of Bob Grant, from some program in early or mid March 1975. Merriam-Webster, publishers of the leading American dictionaries, first heard of this puzzle in a letter dated March 17, 1975, from Patricia Lasker of Brooklyn, New York.

Lasker says. Since that time Merriam-Webster has received about four letters each year asking the question; the puzzle first appears in print in Anita Richterman's "Problem Line" column in Newsday on April 29, 1975. One "M. Z." from Wantagh, New York states. Richterman states that she asked a learned professor of English for help when she first received the inquiry, he did not respond for over a month; this agrees with the Merriam-Webster report, suggesting a quiz show in early or mid March 1975. In Anita Richterman's column on May 9, 1975, several correspondents reported that they had heard the puzzle on the Bob Grant radio talk show on WMCA in New York City; this suggests either that the earlier claims of a quiz show confused a talk show with a quiz show, or that there was another unspecified quiz show, repeated by Grant. The majority of readers gave the answer "gry," an obsolete unit of measure invented by John Locke, it is unclear whether this was the answer given on the Grant show, or what the precise wording had been.

By fall 1975 the puzzle had reached the Delaware Valley, again by radio, by which time the puzzle seems to have mutated to a form in which the missing word is an adjective that describes the state of the world. The puzzle has had occasional bouts of popularity: after its initial popularity in 1975, it was popular in 1978 again in 1995–1996; the most credible report of an early version was given on Stumpers-L, which reported a trick question formulation from an eight-page pamphlet entitled Things to Think About dating to the 1940s: One enterprising reference librarian found an eight-page pamphlet entitled Things to Think About. The booklet was filled with riddles, including the following: There are three words in the English language that end with -gry. Two of these are hungry; the third word is a common word, you use it often. If you have read what I have told you, you will see. What is the third word? Think carefully. Three! The question has nothing to do with angry, hungry, or any of the many other obscure words that end in -gry, it is a simple question asking you what the third word in the sentence is.

As you take tests, remember this. This version only works when spoken: There are three words in English that end in "gree." The first two are "angry" and "hungry", if you've listened you'll agree that I've told you the third one. The answer is "agree". There are three words in the English language that end with the letters'g','r', and'y'. Two are "hungry" and "angry"; the third word is something everyone uses every day. Everyone knows. What is the third word? The answer is "energy"; the riddle says.

National Service Scheme

The National Service Scheme is an Indian government-sponsored public service program conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji's Centenary year in 1969. Aimed at developing student's personality through community service, NSS is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges, Universities and at +2 level working for a campus-community linkage. After independence the University Grants Commission, headed by S. Radhakrishnan, recommended the introduction of voluntary national service in academic institutions; this idea was again considered by the Central Advisory Board of Education at its meeting in January, 1950. In the draft first Five-Year Plan adopted by the government in 1952, the need for social and labour service by Indian students for one year was stressed. In 1958 Jawaharlal Nehru, in a letter to the chief ministers, considered the idea of social service as a prerequisite for graduation.

He directed the Ministry of Education to formulate a suitable scheme for the introduction of national service into academic institutions. In May 1969, a conference of student representatives convened by the Ministry of Education and the University Grants Commission unanimously agreed that a national-service scheme could be an instrument for national integration; the details were soon worked out and orientation camp was organized at Rajghat. This camp was concluded on 7 June 1969. KKGupta from DU was declared first volunteer; the Planning Commission sanctioned an outlay of ₹5 crores for the NSS during the Fourth Five-Year Plan, stipulating that the NSS be a pilot project in selected institutions and universities. On 24 September 1969, the Union Education Minister V. K. R. V. Rao launched the NSS at 37 universities all states; the scheme has been extended to all states and universities in the country, +2 level institutes in many states. The symbol for the NSS has been based on the giant Rath Wheel of the world-famous Konark Sun Temple situated in Odisha, India.

The wheel portrays the cycle of creation and release. It signifies the movement in life across time and space, the symbol thus stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social change; the eight bars in the wheel represents 24 hours of a day. The red colour indicates that the volunteer is full of young blood, lively, active and full of high spirit; the navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind. It stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS; the programme aims to instill the idea of social welfare in students, to provide service to society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone, needy gets help to enhance their standard of living and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, volunteers learn from people in villages how to lead a good life despite a scarcity of resources, it provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food and first aid to the disaster's victims.

At national level, of India is the nodal authority, which works with state-level NSS cells. State-level NSS cells are responsibility of the respective state governments. Within states, each university has University level NSS cell under which institutions based NSS units operate. Most government and government-aided institutions have volunteer NSS units. Institutions are encouraged to have NSS volunteers. A unit comprises 20–40 students, they are managed internally by a responsible party from the school or college, who reports to the regional NSS coordinator. Most institutions do not have a separate uniform for NSS volunteers as there is standard khakhi colored national dress for NCC. There are two types of activities: Annual Special Camp. All the NSS Volunteers who have served NSS for at least 2 years and have performed 240 hours of work under NSS are entitled to a certificate from the university under the signature of the Vice-Chancellor and the Programme Coordinator; the Annual camps are known as Special Camps.

Camps are held annually, funded by the government of India, are located in a rural village or a city suburb. Volunteers may be involved in such activities as: Cleaning Afforestation Stage shows or a procession creating awareness of such issues as social problems and cleanliness Awareness Rallies Inviting doctors for health campsThere are no predefined or preassigned tasks. Camps last between a week and 10 days, although camps for shorter periods are conducted by NSS. In the past the themes of the Special Camping Programmes have been'Youth Against Famine','Youth Against Dirt and Disease','Youth for Rural Reconstruction','Youth for Eco-Development','Youth for Mass Literacy','Youth for National Integration & Social Harmony','Youth for Sustainable Development with special focus on Watershed Management and Wasteland Development' `Healthy Youth For Healthy India` In some institutions and colleges volunteers are involved in regular blood donation and traffic control. National conferences are held to conduct white-paper and project presentations.

And NSS resembles the Bharat Scouts and Guides, National Cadet Corps and other programmes developed f

Moses Hacmon

Moses Hacmon is an Israeli artist best known for his commitment to the study and education about the subject of water. He developed a technique to capture forms in water, he is committed to spreading his theory. His art can be described as kinetic art, BioArt, liquid photography, flow-tography, nature photography, scientific photography, motion photography, he is the older brother of Hila Klein of h3h3productions. Moses studied fine art at Avni Institute of Art and Design in Tel-Aviv. In 2006 Moses completed his B. Arch with AIA honors award, from SCI arc. After graduating Moses started intense training in movement and dance with Body Weather Laboratory to explore water in a somatic manner. Hacmon's art emerged from ten years of research on water and he has committed his life to educating people about water, it all center's around his proposition. In 2013 he discovered the technique he uses to capture images of water that are invisible to the naked eye, his work expands on Masaru Emoto's talking about how water's molecular structure reacts to metaphysical stimuli, most notably found in The Hidden Messages in Water.

While Emoto could only show the way water is effected by human consciousness in the form of frozen water, Hacmon was able to show these effects on water in its fluid form through photography. He has turned these photographs into installations to display in galleries and educate people about his findings. Faces of Water was Hacmon's first project, released in 2013, it is the debut of his technique. Wired Magazine says "Hacmon worked out technique involving a special type of film with a layer of liquid that records the movement of the water itself; the film leaves Hacmon with a full-size negative, which he develops into pictures like the ones here–an analog process from start to finish." The photos show the faces of water. Newbery and the Carnegie medal award-winning author Neil Gaiman said about the photos "Immediate thoughts involve not drinking water any longer because it has eyes and is sentient…" Cymatics is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena a wave. Hacmon employs cymatics in his works.

He has worked with Mark Dresser, an American double bass player and composer, to link sound to its visualization in water. Using the technique Hacmon developed, they set up performances with Dresser's bass hooked up to the water and created a feedback loop where dresser influenced the water which in turn influenced his laying; the entire performance was improvised, playing on the idea of the natural stream of consciousness not only within a single being but between the water outside of us and the water inside of us. 2016 PUMP: Public Urban Multisensory Presentations - Long Beach, California. 2016 H20de: an offbeat tribute on water - Electric Lodge Venice, Los Angeles. 2016 CYAN Yacht - Water to Water - Mediterranean Sea, France. 2016 ELEMENTS - nature-themed exhibit - The Loft at Liz's Los Angeles 2016 Water and Us - The Earth Day Film Festival - San Francisco, California. 2015 Body of Water - El Camino College Art Gallery - Torrance, California 2015 The Joshua Treenial - BoxoPROJECTS - Joshua Tree, CA 2015 Faces of Water at The Integratron - Yucca Valley, California 2014 de Young Museum - Modernist interpretations of Water - San Francisco, California.
