MARIE  CURIE

Answer: Marie Curie conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. Her efforts, along with her husband Pierre Curie, led to the discovery of the radioactive elements polonium and radium, while working with the mineral pitchblende. After years of extensive research handling highly radioactive materials with no safeguards, Curie succumbed to aplastic anemia—a disorder of brought on by her exposure to radiation—at the age of 66. The artifacts found within her laboratory, including her numerous research notebooks, are still so radioactive as to require special storage and protective equipment to handle.

ps:I believe I've read or heard this somewhere before!!

I  also  do  not watch the show===but I  will  guess HIGH VALYRIAN

Answer: High Valyrian is a fictional language spoken in the television drama “Game of Thrones”. For the TV series, linguist David J. Peterson created the High Valyrian language from scratch, complete with grammar and rules. Peterson also created Dothraki, which is another fictional language heard throughout "Game of Thrones". More than 1.2 million “Game of Thrones” fans have signed up to learn High Valyrian, which is more people than can speak traditional languages like Irish and Scottish Gaelic. Valyrian and Dothraki have been described as "the most convincing fictional tongues since Elvish".

STANFORD AND SON

Answer: When All in the Family debuted in 1971, few people suspected it would be responsible for more spin-offs than any other sitcom in television history. All in the Family directly spun off five situation comedies and two additional spin-offs from those spin-offs. In all, the historic sitcom spun off a total of 7 shows, which included 860 episodes, and more than 400 hours of network television. The spin-offs include Maude (which spun off Good Times), The Jeffersons (which spun off Checking In), Gloria, Archie Bunker’s Place, and 704 Hauser.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

Answer: Atticus Finch is a fictional character in Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus is a lawyer and resident of the fictional Maycomb County, Alabama, and the father of Jeremy "Jem" Finch and Jean Louise "Scout" Finch. Lee based the character on her own father, an Alabama lawyer, who, like Atticus, represented black defendants in a highly publicized criminal trial. In 2003 the American Film Institute voted Atticus Finch, as portrayed in an Academy Award-winning performance by Gregory Peck in the 1962 film adaptation, as the greatest hero of all American cinema.

ALASKA

FRANCES FOLSOM CLEVELAND

Answer: On this day in 1886, in a ceremony held in the Blue Room of the White House, President Grover Cleveland married Frances Folsom, the daughter of Cleveland’s late law partner and friend, Oscar Folsom. Fewer than 40 people were present to witness the 49-year-old president exchange vows with Frances, who at 21 years of age became the youngest first lady in U.S. history.

Which Grand Slam tennis tournament is played on red clay courts?

French Open

On 6/2/2019 at 8:17 PM, dgrimm60 said:

FRENCH  OPEN

Answer: The French Open is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. It is the premier clay court tennis championship event in the world. The French Open is currently the only Grand Slam event held on clay, and it is the zenith of the spring clay court season. Clay courts are considered "slow" because the balls bounce relatively high and lose much of their initial speed when contacting the surface. Because of the slow-playing surface, the event is widely considered to be one of the most physically demanding tennis tournaments in the world.
