"Characterization" (月旦評) is a collection of portrayals of heroes of the "Epoch of the Three Kingdoms" by Xu Shao (許劭) in conversations with his cousin on the first day of the first moon.
 
"Frenemy" is a portmanteau of "friend" and "enemy" that can refer to either an enemy pretending to be a friend or someone who really is a friend but also a rival. The term is used to describe personal, geopolitical, and commercial relationships both among individuals and groups or institutions.

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.
