Now Out: Essay 1288 on 宰 (to be in charge), New Radical Note, Jim Breen Testimonial, and 5 New-Monics

The 304th essay has posted! Essay 1288 on 宰 (to be in charge) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

From the head of the haiku society to Prime Minister Abe, 宰 enables you to talk about the person in charge. By reading about 宰 in this essay, you'll also learn about an ancient, powerful organization that shaped Japanese culture, a great man who ran Japan after the war, and a fascinating writer whose personal life was such a mess that it'll make you feel good about yours!

Using the accompanying game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

To complement this essay, I've posted Radical Note 40 on the “katakana u” radical, a free resource.

Also, some thrilling news: Jim Breen has written a terrific testimonial about Joy o' Kanji. You'll find it at the top of the Testimonials page.

Finally, Ulrike created the following new-monics (which are free!):

唆 (1284: to influence)
拙 (1487: unskillful)
塁 (1918: base)
熊 (1995: bear)
狙 (2050: aim)
