HAKU, BAKU

meaning: extensive, spread, gain, gamble

博士 == hakase == Ph.D.
博徒 == bakuto == gambler


Left radical is 'ten' (十). The right radical is almost identical to 'exclusive' (専), but it was actually derived from another character entirely. Henshall suggests remembering it as 'exclusive' and a 'point', and as as a mnemonic: 'Gain ten exclusive points by extensive gambling.'
