It's time for former president Chen Shui-bian to go back to prison. There's no reason why he is allowed to stay at home on compassionate release from jail where he is required to serve a 20-year sentence for corruption and graft as well as money laundering while he was in office from 2000 to 2008.

Historiography refers to both the study of the methodology of historians and development of history as a discipline, and also to a body of historical work on a particular subject.

When television was popularized in Japan in the late 1950s, the print media felt so threatened that they called the TV set an "idiot box" and warned the new electronic media would turn all 100 million Japanese into idiots. Japan's population was around 100 million then, and a famous social critic, Soichi Oyake, coined the catch phrase "one hundred million all idiotized" (一億白痴化) in 1957. Of course, his prediction wasn't borne out, but the quality of news reporting in Japan as well as across the world has gone down.
