A True Champion!!!

X entered in Cleopatra style, carried aloft in a chair held by four bare-chested muscle men dressed in the garb of ancient slaves. Y followed in a rickshaw drawn by a bevy of scantily-clad models. Y presented X with a giant lollypop and X gave Y a piglet named. What Occasion,Name X and Y.

Good guess by Shrey,but Vineet takes away the honors.
X is Billie Jean King
Y is Bobby Riggs
Occasion:Battle of the Sexes.

Identify this Soldier..And the incident!

Aries1987(Ashish) gets it perfect.It was linked directly to the previous post.He was an American Soldier. Capt. Arthur Bonifas. He was killed using an axe in the "AXE MURDER ACCIDENT" following which the BRIDGE OF NO RETURN was no more used!

Bridge Naming!!!

The name X originates from the fact that prisoners were given the choice to remain in the country of their captivity or cross over to the other country. But if they chose to cross the bridge, they would never be allowed to return.

Name X and it connects which 2 countries.

Vineet gets it right again.
The Bridge is "Bridge of No Return" connects south and north korea.

Beware kids!!!!

The first signs of an X are:

  1. Rise in surface pressure over the Indian Ocean,Indonesia, and Australia.
  2. Fall in air pressure over Tahiti and the rest of the central and eastern
  3. Trade Winds in the south Pacific weaken or head east
  4. Warm air rises near , causing rain in the northern Peruvian deserts
  5. Warm water spreads from the west Pacific and the Indian Ocean to the east Pacific. It takes the rain with it, causing extensive drought in the western Pacific and rainfall in the normally dry eastern Pacific
It happens at irregular intervals of 2–7 years and lasts nine months to two years.
The Strong-arms Dude below is a huge hint.
Id "X"

Kaushik,Shrey,Sijut and Vineet(again) get it right.
X is El Nino and the guy is Hanley Ramirez who is known by nick name of El Nino.

Solve for X!!

He was the third President Tata Steel Union, which was formed in 1920. During those days it was known as The Labour Association.In his avatar of a trade union leader, X was responsible for forcing the Tata Steel management to implement maternity benefit to their employees.On his call, Tata steel had also witnessed first and last ever strike by the workers in 1928. Bowing to the just demands of workers, Tata Steel management and X as President of the workers union signed the historic agreement which gave matenity benefits to the workers. Who is being referred to here as X?

The Road Ahead!!

Mr X had an unpleasant time in September last year suffering minor injuries due to an accident.
But then,some comfort came in the form of his country's Prime Minister when he named the highway(on which Mr X had the accident)after Mr X.
An immensely popular Mr X is the "frontrunner" in his field.

Name Mr. X who shares his last name with a 2008 released movie.

Usain Bolt is the answer.Bolt is an animation movie released in 2008.
Highway 2000 was renamed as "Usain Bolt Highway" after his accident in September 2009.
Sijut and Bhavin Bhaiya(welcome again) got it right!!
Good try by Vineet.

And thy Shall Not Steal!!!

Answer the individual questions and connect them to a single entity...

1."Our mission is to enable users to search complex fields on the Web intelligently. We're starting with health and medicine – an area where many people will appreciate a service that helps them quickly get high value information, and a field where we have expertise based on our work with health-related organizations."
Which company am I talking about?

2.X is a company based in San Francisco, California that is developing a natural language search engine for the Internet.

X is working on building a natural language search engine that can find targeted answers to user questions (as opposed to keyword based search). For example, when confronted with a question like "Which U.S. state has the highest income tax?", conventional search engines ignore the question phrasing and instead do a search on the keywords "state", "highest", "income", and "tax". X on the other hand, attempts to use natural language processing to understand the nature of the question and return pages containing the answer.

3.X was a reverse auction online shopping site website.It is the first website exclusively using "cost per action" for shopping, and the first to give ad revenues to customers, by means of rebates on purchases.
What's X.

4.X was Founded in 2003 by Oren Etzioni (founder of MetaCrawler and a professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington), and has collected over 175 billion airfare observations to date. X's team of data miners use these airfare observations to build algorithms to predict future airfare price movements.
Identify X.

5.X was created in 2006 by Jack Dorsey. Since then it has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet" since the use of its application programming interface for sending and receiving short text messages by other applications often eclipses its direct use.
