    One thing I found that I seem to have better night/dark vision than Japanese.

    I often find when I visit Japanese friends and family that they prefer more brightly lit rooms than me.

    Said that I know quiet a few Japanese that use sunglasses for fashion. So it might be due to sensitivity if the eyes as Cleo said.

    Revenge porn bills have been passed in many countries now, seems to be quiet a problem globally. There are even sites(being closed down) that specialise in that form of extortion.

    What does that have to do with fish farming? Do farmed tuna eat more than wild tuna?

    Actually in a way they do, what those farms do is catch juvenile tuna and they get fed in pens their favourite food to fatten them up.

    That food of course is caught by other fishermen.

    AFAIK, only the Japanese so far have succeeded to breed Tuna in captivity.

    I will miss him. Great actor but not that well known outside Japan.

    I don't know 'The Wings' were pretty good and he wrote composed much for others. Granted not as big as John Lennon but bigger than the other 3 Beatles members.

    Glad you can tell by whom the tuna in the super was caught and if it was over or under the size quota. Besides your standard anti-japanese attitude I don't see your point. Korea, USA & China got a growing Sushi industry and also consume more and more. Surprisingly glioal bluefin tuna consumption/demand has increased dramatically over the last 20yrs yet the 80% consumption rate of Japan never changed.

    You are also aware for sure that much of the sushi/sashimi tuna sold in Japan is now yellow fin and not blue fin.

    Hawkeye.

    You mean like Chinese and Koreans who run most Japanese restaurants outside Japan? I am sure Natto will be the next Japanese culinary fad introduced by those entrepeneurs. :P

    People forget that Japan us NOT the only nation catching bluefin tuna.

    Yes, japan has set the quota, so far no reports that they have violated it.

    1st paragraph.

    The Pacific bluefin tuna, a fish used in sushi and sashimi dishes, is at risk of extinction as the global food market places unsustainable pressure on the species and others,

    Bold emphasis is mine.

    Also not sure who can afford to eat Tuna Sushi/Sashimi 3-4times a week, not your average family/income for sure. Most of the people I know can't even afford it once a week.

    Also is that 80% of pacific blefin tuna consumed or sold/traded? Pity that all the other species and countries mentioned in the article are 100% ignored by posters, ....

    Agree Google glass will improve with newer tech, also think it will be mostly used in industry to look up diagrams during repair work, etc.

    As for Apple Wozniak said that the IPhone 6 Plus is 3yrs too late, ditto for smartwarches.

    Also like the new Galaxy Note Edge wonder if Apple will introduce a similar feature in the next model.

    About 23% of the world population is Muslim and follow Islam.

    Christianity 31%, Unaffiliated 16%, Hindi 14%, Buddhist 7%, etc.

    Nearly a quarter if the worlds population is a huge possible income source for any business.

    NZ2011.

    That type thinking is not confined to Islam and its followers, I exists everywhere even among posters here.

    Tourism would drop worldwide very fast if those allowances, accommodations and compromises weren't already made for the sake of earning more money. Just a new target group to add to an existing and growing list.

    Wonder why so many are against this, yet many tourist destinations internationally already cater for their languages. Dietary habits, etc.

    Ever tried reading a menu in Hebrew, Greek, Russian, Finnish, etc writing?

    Most of the kissaten i go to are 100% non-smoking, simple reason they often are part of a bakery and/or cake shop.

    The owners sez the cigarette smell affects their wares.
