1. What unusual effect is produced by photographing a scene with the selective focus technique called "tilt-shift"? Don't know if Mr. Jennings is looking for a specific term, but the general effect appears to make real-life photography appear to be miniature models. Well worth Googling (post-contest week, of course); it's a really cool effect.

2. Two Korean family names are so common that one in every three South Koreans has one of them. Name either of the two most common Korean surnames. Pretty sure that one is Park. I think the other might be Kim.

3. What kind of body tissue is affected by myopathy? Muscle?

4. What host, whose show originated in Dayton, Ohio in 1967, had the top-rated daytime talk show in America until Oprah Winfrey dethroned him in 1986? Phil Donahue?

5. According to the title of his latest album, Justin Timberlake is a "Man of" what unexpected locale? The woods. Hence the godawful Super Bowl getup.

6. What successor weapon to the catapult takes its name from the French word for "to overthrow"? Trebuchet?

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these teams? Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Senators.

I feel pretty good about 1-6 this week; no idea about #7.
