a tv series where the central characters have the ability to manipulate the classical elements (water, fire, earth, air/wind, and aether/metal depending on the culture). some series include extra elements, such as ice, spirit, darkness, light, thunder, metal, etc.

in the series, the elementalists must battle an evil, and when one element is absent, they usually cannot carry out their objective. they are strongest when united.

also, each character's personality is usually reflected on their element. ex: fire is rash and impulsive; water is calm and collective; earth is nurturing and loyal; air is inquisitive and curious
some examples of elemental television series are:

Avatar: The Last Airbender
W.I.T.C.H.
Sailor Moon
Captain Planet
Xiaolin Showdown

of course, avatar and w.i.t.c.h are the best. :)

Sino meaning "China".

There were actually two wars: The First Sino-Japanese War was from 1894 to 1895. The Second Sino-Japanese War overlapped World war II from 1931 to 1945.

The First Sino-Japanese war was between Qing Dynasty China and Meiji Japan over the control of Korea. Because of the newly modernized Japan after the end of the three hundred year Tokugawa (Edo) Period, and the deterioation of the Qing Dynasty and its government, China lost to Japan and recognized the independence of Korea, and the last dynasty of China ended in 1912.

From there, China and Korea were under Japanese control, and so would begin many years of oppression and forced cultural assimilation from the Japanese.

The Second Sino-Japanese War began much later, between the Rupublic of China and the Empire of Japan, and was commonly known in China as "The War of Resistance Against Japan", because by this time, the Chinese were fed up with the Japanese in their country and wanted to rid China of foreign rule because of a rise in nationalism and self determination. The Second Sino-Japanese War was the largest asiatic war of the twentieth century.

Foreign aide, much from the United States, came to help China after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.

Many plans were suppose to be put to action to secure regions of resistance in China, but after the droppings of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan finally surrender.

The Chinese victory of the Second Sino-Japanese War strengthen communist and socialist views, and the People's Republic of China was formed soon after. However, because of years of oppression that were brought upon China and Korea by Japanese imperialist policy, and several war crimes committed by the Japanese Imperial Army (including mass killings, experimentation, starvation, rape and sexual slavery (see comfort women), forced labor, cannibalism, chemical weapons, looting, and torture) many Chinese and Koreans (as well as denizens of countries that were occupied by Japan such as Indonesia, the Phillipines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, and the Dutch East Indies, etc.) harbor bitter resentments toward the Japanese to this day, and no amount of compensation or apologies will ever cleanse the wounds entirely...
The Sino-Japanese Wars brought about some of the most drastic changes to Far East Asia. Following the wars, many countries became communist, some split, some united, some rose from poverty to become some of the most powerful nations in the world, while others are still developing, and whole lot of them still hate the Japanese
with a passion. What makes a lot of people - many of whom have experienced the horrors of the wars - angry is the fact that many Japanese textbooks refuse to mention any of this important and incriminating history.

Now what do you think about that, you Wapanese morons?

Also known as consumption, tuberculosis or TB is a common and deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria. It attacks the lungs and respiratory system, but can also attack the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, bones, joints and even the skin.

Symptoms include chest pains, coughing blood, prolonged coughing, chills, night sweats, pallor, lose of appetite, weight lose, and easy fatigue. Though tuberculosis is not known for being especially contagious, it can be rather easy to transmit, since TB is spread through infected aerosols via coughing, spitting, speaking, kissing, and sneezing. Tuberculosis attacks everybody differently. While it can take months to years for the TB infection to become the TB disease in some people, it can easily become the full flight disease in some people in a matter of weeks.

If left untreated, TB causes death. (duh)

Since tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria, treatment is available via antibiotics, though there is currently no vaccine for adults.

Due to medicial attention toward HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis has resurged.
On a lighter note, tuberculosis is probably the most overused disease found in historical manga/anime.

Wait, that's not good...
