Ocean Cities - New Earth - the holdfast
Lenfest Ocean Program An international process to inform high-seas conservation and management is at a critical juncture, according to a study in Marine Policy supported by the Lenfest Ocean Program. Experts have assembled detailed information on 172 “ecologically or biologically significant areas” (EBSAs), but policy disagreements have delayed further consideration.

Unlocking Land Values for Infrastructure in Ahmedabad Throughout the developing world, public agencies often act like illegal squatters. Because they lack title and an incentive to sell the land they manage, these agencies keep the land from being put to its most valuable use. Often this idle or underutilized land is in high-value districts of central cities. Grain & Housing Affordability in China In a recent paper, UP senior scholar Alain Bertaud considers the lessons that China’s remarkable urban transition holds for other rapidly urbanizing countries in the developing world.
How we can save our world and have fun in the process. Dear reader, if you run into Sir Richard Branson please ask him to take a look at this. He might find it very interesting. It would be really good if everybody was interested in fixing up the environmental damage that has been caused by human activities. If that were the case I wouldn't have to write this because dozens of other people, most of them smarter than me no doubt, would have already written this and vast numbers of people would already be beavering away to make it happen.
Hake fillet This article is about the fish product "Hake fillet", for a general description of the fish and other uses see Hake After the production stage, the hake fillet is checked for blood, bones, fins, black membrane, fleas, loose fish scales, and sorted. It is then packed and kept frozen in order to achieve a product temperature of approximately -18°C.
Flake is a term used in Australia to indicate the flesh of any of several species of small shark, particularly the gummy shark. The term probably arose in the late 1920s when the large-scale commercial shark fishery, started by Faith Isbell, off the coast of Victoria was established. Until that time, shark was generally an incidental catch rather than a targeted species. Flake rapidly became popular. It has a mild flavour, a soft texture that nevertheless remains well-defined after cooking, and a clean white appearance. Flake (fish)
French fries (American English) or chips, fries, finger chips, or French-fried potatoes are batons of deep-fried potato. Americans and most Canadians refer to any elongated pieces of fried potatoes as fries, while in the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, long, thinly cut slices of fried potatoes are sometimes called fries to distinguish them from the more thickly cut strips called chips. French fries are served hot and generally eaten as an accompaniment with lunch or dinner, or eaten as a snack, and they are a common fixture of fast food. French fries are generally salted and, in their simplest and most common form, are served with ketchup; in many countries, though, they are topped instead with other condiments or toppings, including vinegar, mayonnaise, or other local specialities. Fries can also be topped more elaborately, as is the case with the dishes of poutine and chili cheese fries. French fries
Fish and chips History Fish and chips became a stock meal among the working classes in the United Kingdom as a consequence of the rapid development of trawl fishing in the North Sea, and the development of railways which connected the ports to major industrial cities during the second half of the 19th century, which meant that fresh fish could be rapidly transported to the heavily populated areas. Deep-fried fish was first introduced into Britain during the 16th century by Jewish refugees from Portugal and Spain, and is derived from pescado frito. In 1860, the first fish and chip shop was opened in London by Joseph Malin. Deep-fried chips (slices or pieces of potato) as a dish may have first appeared in Britain in about the same period: the Oxford English Dictionary notes as its earliest usage of "chips" in this sense the mention in Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities (published in 1859): "Husky chips of potatoes, fried with some reluctant drops of oil".
Ocean Cities - 海上城市 - KotaKota Samudera I just today heard a session on ABC Radio National featuring an interview with Dr Sylvia Earl who has been studying the ocean for many decades. It was fascinating to hear and it was quite salutary to hear how in the 1960s and '70s Dr Earl was having to push to get herself included on expeditions just because she was a woman. One thing that worried me though is I heard nothing from Dr Earl or the interviewer, etc, about actually feeding the fish! Dr Earl described how so many regions of the ocean and the rivers flowing into it have been irrevocably changed by human plundering and polluting. One suggestion offered was to stop eating fish.
