Regular readers of this blog should be aware that I'm currently out of town and busy with research for a number of new stories. I plan to be back with new posts by the middle of next week.

I'll be posting a new story on the state of the digital media and newspapers generally some time toward the end of the month. The story will appear in Anthill magazine, which regularly carries my work.

Another story in the offing is on sustainable tuna, which has just been put on sale at Aldi in Australia. Most tuna in cans you see in the supermarket is sourced from - we aren't told. Tuna stocks in the Atlantic are severely depleted and the huge fishing boats that once harvested tuna there are now active in the Pacific - our local area. Some people think it's important that we suport sustainable fishing. Not just sustainable, but selective, so that non-target species are not killed unnecessarily.

I'm also working on a story about chillies, which is slated to appear in the April edition of Good Fruit & Vegetables.

Just to mix things up a bit, there's a young Philippina living in Tokyo who has agreed to let me ask questions about the social entrepreneurial Stitch Tomorrow initiative she's launched.

Finally, there's a story I've been working on for a long time on the prevalence of problem gambling among members of the ethnic Chinese community.

Thanks for visiting and see you then.
