The exact reason is not known but many expect that it is a corruption of the old german, french or dutch names for the plant. However, it is also likely that it was just named "gooseberry" and not actually a corruption of another word. Many plants have been named after animals for no apparent reason… such as fox grapes and buffaloberries. according to wikipedia The first part of the word has been usually treated as an etymological corruption either of the Dutch word Kruisbezie or the allied German Krausbeere , or of the earlier forms of the French groseille . Alternatively the word has been connected to the Middle high German krus (curl, crisped), in Latin as grossularia . However, the New English Dictionary takes the obvious derivation from goose and berry as probable; the grounds on which plants and fruits have received names associating them with animals are so often inexplicable, that the inappropriateness in the meaning does not necessarily give good grounds for believing that the word is an etymological corruption.

The origin of the English word 'gooseberry' [ Ribes uva-crispa ] has topological origin. The generic is the simple joining of the words 'goose' and 'berry'and the shape of fruit globose varying in color with a dry petals at the apex that look like goose head .There's no consensus as to why the two… words are joined. But one believable explanation emerges from the history of foods in the United Kingdom as a common berry used by commoners to make juice and syrup for jams or jellies easily digested. Gooseberries have been used in a green sauce of butter, sorrel juice, and sugar for boiled leg of lamb, goose , and mackerel at least since the time of the reign [March 8, 1702-August 1, 1714] of Queen Anne [February 6, 1665-August 1, 1714]. Some opine that the word came into English by way of the Dutch , French or German languages. Those who opt for a Dutch origin trace the English word back to 'Kruisbezie'. Those who opt for a French origin backtrack to 'groseille'. And those who opt for a German origin track back to 'Krausbeere'. Of the possible sources, a French origin has the persuasive link back to the Latin grossularia. And the gooseberry is a relative of currants. It's even possible to form the hybrid Jostaberry [ Ribes x culverwelli , R. nidigularia , R. x nidigularia , R. nigrum x uva-crispa ] from gooseberry and blackcurrant [ Ribes nigrum ]. (MORE)

The 'yuan' is one name. yuan is the name of the denomination being used. The correct name of the currency = Renminbi. since most western countries don't distinguish between denomination & currency, it's the same name as the currency. But it's distinguished in Chinese. Renminbi = currency…. yuan = denomination. RMB/Renminbi: Yuan [compare to US "dollar bill"] > jiao [compare to US "dime"] > fen [compare to US "penny"]. 10 jiao = 1 yuan just like 10 US dimes = 1 US dollar. 1 yuan = 100 fen just like 1 US dollar = 100 US pennies. There's no equivalent to the US quarter in RMBs. Saying "1 yuan RMB" = saying "1 dollar [denomination: 1,5,10,20, 50, 100, etc... dollars] (in) US dollars [currency]". (MORE)

Disease features prominently in Chekhov's stories, and his protagonists often suffer tragic and untimely deaths. It is unsurprising that the author seems haunted by the notion of infirmity, since he was plagued by tuberculosis for most of his adult life and died of the disease at the age of forty-fo…ur. Often-as in The Black Monk and The Grasshopper -disease acts as a physical representation of a character's psychological turmoil. Osip sickens in The Grasshopper because he is depressed about his wife's infidelity, while Chekhov subtly blends the symptoms of Kovrin's mental illness with those of tuberculosis in The Black Monk. But the author's recurring use of this theme is neither pathological nor self-pitying; Chekhov recognizes man's subservience to forces greater than his or her own will. The author uses the symbolic power of his dying protagonists-such as Kovrin in The Black Monk or Rabin in Ward No. six -to emphasize life's transience as well as humankind's subservience to the whims of fate. Chekhov also examines disease as a reflection of social degeneration. For example, Kovrin's psychosis- which ruins his marriage, kills his father- in-law and wrecks Yegor's prized orchard-seems to symbolize the disintegration of society at large. Chekhov thus focuses on disease to indicate individual frailty as well as the growing conflicts within society. Chekhov's stories examine many kinds of disappointment and failed ideals. Often the protagonists are disillusioned by events that force them to reevaluate their personal philosophies and understanding of the world, and this disillusionment usually occurs toward the end of stories. Such climaxes range from the mildly pathetic-as when the narrator in The Night Before Easter sees Jerome in daylight and realizes that he is just an ordinary man, to the monumentally tragic-such as Rabin's incarceration in Ward No. six and his subsequent nervous breakdown. The protagonists of The Darling and My Life also tackle frustrated dreams, loneliness, and the breakdown of romantic ties, but they never fundamentally alter their view of the world. Consequently, we see that Chekhov's tales conclude with either a moment of revelation or anti-climax (these endings have been termed "zero" and "surprise" endings, respectively.) His protagonists are either crushed by their sense of disillusionment with the world, or they hold out hope in a better future. (MORE)
