I Want to move it!!

The origin of this term is uncertain. It is believed that it is a reduplication of the name given to a rent party in early 20th century USA. These parties were impromptu affairs which were organized to raise money to pay rent and at which a small entrance fee was charged.

This term was first recorded in print as the title of Clarence 'Pinetop' Smith's 1928 recording, which includes these lyrics:

I want everybody to dance just like I say
And when I say 'hold it there'
I want all of you ... to stop
And when I say stop - don't move
And when I say git it
I want all of you to do a _______ _________.

Name this term being talked about!!
(Try to answer without googling)

Ans: Boogie-Woogie
Shrey and Chithananda got it correct as usual.

Biz Games!!

The logo with the famous “winged arrow” was first used in 1926.Although the logo of this company is viewed as one of the most original and stylistically clean manufacturing company trademarks in the world, the author is not yet known. The black and green logo, which has been used since 1994, gives it a greater degree of originality – black symbolises the hundred-year tradition, green signalises environmental production.

Usual interpretation of the logo’s symbolism

* Large circle (circular ring) – universality of production, perfection of products, the globe, the world
* Pinion (wing) – technical progress, span of production programme and sales of products in the world
* Arrow – progressive production methods, high productivity
* Circle (eye) – precision of production, technical brightness, range of vision
* Black colour – hundred-year tradition
* Green colour – environmental production, protection of the environment, recycling of materials used.

Give me the name of the company whose logo is being talked about and whose old logo is given below!!

He also has knowledge of all matters pertaining to gambling, car maintenance, etiquette, and women. However, his most impressive feats are a flawless knowledge of the British Aristocracy and making antidotes (especially for hangovers).In the Oxford English Dictionary his name has been converted into a generic term for any useful and reliable person.
