Here’s tonight’s Final Jeopardy for Tuesday, October 11, 2016:
Final Jeopardy! category: GEOGRAPHY AND LANGUAGE
Final Jeopardy! clue: The world’s busiest container port, its name is also an English verb with criminal overtones
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Kalen Meine, a bartender from Littleton, Colorado
||Alice Emerson, a communications manager from Oreland, Pennsylvania
||Pidge Meade, a technical writer and actress from Pacifica, California (1-day total: $17,601)
What is Shanghai?
In case you missed yesterday’s game, Pidge’s interview yesterday was about how she got her name: Pidge’s mother asked her local bridge-playing friends, who all wanted Pidge named after them. So Pidge’s mother took the first initial of everyone’s name and turned into an acronym for her name!
According to the World Shipping Council, here are the 10 busiest:
- Shanghai, China
- Shenzhen, China
- Hong Kong, China
- Ningbo-Zhoushan, China
- Busan, South Korea
- Qingdao, China
- Guangzhou Harbor, China
- Jebel Ali, Dubai, UAE
- Tianjin, China
Europe’s busiest, Rotterdam, is #11. Los Angeles, North America’s busiest, is #19.
And of course, the Oxford Dictionaries entry for “shanghai”.
