Bookmarks for November 22nd

When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on November 22nd:

  • Ahi quota hits as demand jumps: Just when the demand for sashimi escalates in the holiday season, the supply is likely to shrink, thanks to a new international fishing quota that will kick in next month.
  • Benefits of Eating Fish May Depend on Preparation: You’ll get more heart-healthy benefits from omega-3 fatty acids if you eat baked or boiled fish instead of fried, dried or salted fish, according to a new study.
  • UK to pull out of Gemini Observatory: The UK is “almost certain” not to continue participating in the Gemini Observatory after 2012 according to a statement by the Gemini board of directors.
  • Lava Cave Minerals Actually Microbe Poop: Colorful cave deposits long thought to be ordinary minerals are actually mats of waste excreted by previously unknown types of microbes, scientists say.
  • Living the Biotech Funding Nightmare: Martin Sabarsky is living this harsh life. The chief operating officer of the 5-year-old HR BioPetroleum — an algae biofuel start-up with operations in both Hawaii and San Diego — is the epitome of today’s early-stage biotech executive.
  • Ponzi scheme entangled Waipahu firm: Executives of a Pennsylvania company that solicited investors for a Waipahu-based renewable energy firm were charged this week for allegedly running a $30 million Ponzi scheme that targeted elderly investors.
