 Taka Update July 25, 2012

 Fish delivery and more

It’s been good business and no problem. But it was very slow last night. Hot and humid summer killed our business. I had no idea last night.
Good tuna is coming today. It is big eye tuna and stomach side. I also ordered kama, collars. There is only 2 pieces and first come first serve. You should eat this kind of things before you die. It is worth to try.
I cut Malabar Grouper and Blue Fusilier . Grouper was a little bit chewy, Fusilier was not much great. I need to find something new.
Uni is fine. It is a little bit watery but still sweet.

 Seacology

We donate some money to Seacology, environmental NPO in CA.  It was $500 per month but I rose to $1000 from July because our business was good.
Save our islands and coral leaves all over the world. I personally donate $50 every month.

Weight Control and Golf

My weight is still same, around 170 lbs.  It is hard to lose 5 lbs. now. I sometimes get sweat but take beer after that. So, it is same basically.
My golf? It was just like Adam Scott. I was very good until 17 holes and I shot 11 at 18. Just tired and frustrated. This is the life and golf.
Barry Manilow is coming this Sunday. Hot and humid weather might kill him. He is 68 years old and does 2 hours performance.


Strawberries again vindicated in the fight against heart disease, diabetes and cognitive decline
This is from Natural News.
Flavonoids from many fruits have been associated with potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help prevent a host of diseases ranging from cardiovascular ailments and metabolic disorders to dementia and cognitive decline. Increased antioxidant activity promoted by consumption of strawberries is essential to halt damage to metabolically active organs such as the heart and brain, and when consumed as part of a regular dietary regimen can prevent cellular damage associated with chronic disease and early death.

Researchers from the University of Warwick in the UK have been studying the beneficial effects of strawberries on our cardiovascular health, particularly with regard to how they prevent the development of heart disease and diabetes. A study team led by Dr. Paul Thornalley has found that extracts from strawberries positively activate a protein in our bodies called 'Nrf2' which is shown to increase antioxidant and other protective activities. The protein decreases total blood lipids and levels of oxidized cholesterol, two elements known to promote cardiovascular disease.
Prior research has shown how consumption of strawberries can counter post-meal blood glucose surges and improve dangerous levels of oxidized LDL cholesterol, thereby decreasing the risk of diabetes and heart disease. This is the first time that strawberry extracts have been demonstrated to positively stimulate proteins that offer us protection against disease.

Dr. Thornalley commented "We've discovered the science behind how strawberries work to increase our built-in defenses to keep cells, organs and blood vessels healthy and which can reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular problems such as heart disease and diabetes." Strawberries and other members of the berry family modify our blood cholesterol profile with an effect similar to that seen with a high fiber diet, where cholesterol is absorbed in the intestines before it can be processed by the liver.

Strawberries accomplish this effect by down-regulating the impact of genes in the digestive tract that influence cholesterol absorption. The berries can also impact how the liver processes cholesterol, the degree of damaging oxidation and re-absorption of cholesterol for use by the trillions of cells throughout the body. As with most other natural foods that are shown to influence the expression of individual genes, only small quantities (one to two servings of strawberries, several days a week) of the super fruit are needed to provide positive health benefits that may help prevent a host of chronic illnesses.
