*  Fūrin Kazan (Taiga drama)
Fūrin Kazan (風林火山) was the 46th NHK Taiga drama beginning on January 7, 2007. It was aired throughout 2007. The story, to a large extent, was an adaptation of Yasushi Inoue's 1959 historical novel of the same title (published in English under the title The Samurai Banner of Furin Kazan). The four characters of the title, from left to right are wind, woods, fire, and mountain. The title is a reference to the war banner used by Takeda Shingen, which in turn was taken from Sun Tzu's The Art of War. It means "Swift as the Wind, Silent as a Forest, Fierce as Fire and Immovable as a Mountain." Like many of the previous Taiga dramas, Fūrin Kazan deals with the Sengoku period. Based on Yasushi Inoue's novel by the same title, it depicts the life of Yamamoto Kansuke who is known as one of Takeda Shingen's renowned strategists.

*  Sfida për Shqipërinë
SFIDA! për Shqipërinë (CHALLENGE! for Albania or simply SFIDA!) is an Albanian political party, founded in 2016. SFIDA is an anti-establishment party that promotes direct democracy, mandate limitation and vetting for politicians. SFIDA is a follow-up of the movement "Ne, Tirana" which supported Gjergj Bojaxhi during local elections in 2015 where he ran as an independent candidate for Tirana's city hall. The party does not have a traditional leader. Instead this role is split between an administrative chairman (held by Hektor Ruci) and a political representative, Gjergj Bojaxhi. In June 2015, Bojaxhi ran as an independent candidate in the local elections for the city hall of Tirana. This candidacy was supported by an organized civil movement called "Ne, Tirana". The elections were won by Erion Veliaj, however Bojaxhi won over 16,000 votes. Based on this significant public support, in 2016 Bojaxhi and several other founders created "SFIDA! për Shqipërinë" in order to extend "Ne, Tirana" to a ...
