In the 1920s, Alexander Calder creatively utilized materials like wire and string to construct “models in motion” for a small-scale circus setting, known as “Cirque Calder.” This innovative artistic creation combined aspects of sculpture and performance, featuring an array of miniature circus figures such as acrobats, animals, and ringmasters. These were intricately made from materials like wire, wood, and fabric, and were more than just static sculptures; Calder would animate them during live performances, effectively enlivening the miniature circus. This early work of his was instrumental in the development of his renowned mobiles, marking Calder as a forerunner in the realm of kinetic sculpture and significantly influencing the direction of modern art.

Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.

Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
