(EN) (PDF) - Japanese Chef Knife Collections | korin.com | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Japan is a land of long traditions, especially in the field of arts and crafts, where hundreds of years of accumulated knowledge and experience are passed down from master to apprentice, from teacher to pupil. From kimono silk dying and ikebana flower arranging to martial arts and kabuki theatre, each tradition has its own set of rules, procedures and schools of style. Striving for excellence in their field, Japanese blacksmiths have long been producing the exceptionally fine traditional Japanese knives required by master chefs in Japan to achieve their culinary goals. Today, the razor-sharp, singleedged blades of traditional Japanese knives are prized by Japanese and non-Japanese chefs alike."

(EN) - What do we call them: UAV, UAS or RPAS? | Australian Certified UAV Operators Inc. | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"The terms; ‘Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’ (UAV); ‘Unmanned Aircraft System’ (UAS); ‘Remotely Piloted Aircraft System’ (RPAS); and ‘Drone’ are, in the broad, all references to one and the same thing, this being:
“An aircraft [or aircraft-system] that is flown from a remote location without a pilot located in the aircraft itself.”
Normally the operator of such an aircraft is located on the ground, but they could also be stationed in a vehicle, a boat or even another (manned) aircraft."

(EN) - Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase & Fable | factmonster.com

(EN) - Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase & Fable | factmonster.com | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it
Ebenezer Cobham Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable is one of the English-speaking world's classic reference books. First published in England in 1870, the volume is now in its 17th edition. Infoplease is honored to present Brewer's 1894 “new and enlarged” edition, which was the last version Brewer himself worked on—he died three years after its publication at age 87.

While the proper title of the 1894 edition was the Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, future versions of the dictionary began incorporating Brewer's name in the title, in the same way that Bartlett's Familiar Quotations eventually included its original author's name in the title.

The dictionary, which contains approximately 16,000 entries, is a compendium of allusions, idioms, mythology, place names, historical and fictional figures and events, nicknames, foreign terms, and famous phrases and quotations—what Brewer described as “words that have a tale to tell.” Given that the volume is more than a century old, its tone and expression are frequently musty and antiquated, and its definitions and etymologies can be obscure and imprecise. But what this idiosyncratic reference work sometimes lacks in scholarly rigor is easily made up for by its wit, charm, and fascinating contents.
