From Convert-me.com: A handy little tool for quick conversions to and from metric.
A more sophisticated tool that converts from the U.S. standard of measuring dry goods by volume (like flour and sugar in cups) to a metric weight standard, and vice versa, is also available from Convert-me.com. See our review.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT FISH FOR YOU
Standing at the fish counter or about to order at a restaurant, do you sometimes think back on that story you read or saw on TV about mercury and PCBs in fish and wonder if it affects the fish you see in the display? Or which fish are caught or farmed in a sustainable manner?
Separate guides are available for each region in the U.S. (West Coast, Northeast, Hawaii, Southeast, Central, and Southwest) and they are color-coded to red-flag fish species that are currently found to carry unacceptably high toxin levels, and to highlight non-toxic species that are sustainably managed. The charts are available in English or Spanish for the U.S., and you can download and print one for yourself right here! On the Seafood Watch (SFW) website there is also a searchable database that provides all the necessary information to assist you in making an informed choice about your seafood, and also offers alternatives if your first choice is either unhealthy or unsustainable.
Lastly, SFW has also teamed up with the Environmental Defense Fund in producing a searchable national database and take-along guide for your mobile phone! Check it out on the EDF’s site here. Read the full post here for details on how to find similar guides for Italy, Germany, Canada, the UK, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Australia, France, South Africa, New Zealand, Finland, the Netherlands, Poland, Norway, and Switzerland, and for a recipe list featuring fish the SFW has deemed "Best" or "Good" for Hawaii.
