#RECIPE - Simple Grilled Paella | a Couple Cooks | Visit Spain | Scoop.it

"Paella is one of our most special meals. I instantly fell in love with this traditional Spanish dish while studying in Madrid several years ago. Inspired by an interest in Spanish cooking (fueled by both chef José Andrés and this show), we decided to give our own a try a few years ago, and were surprised to meet with great success!  Since then, we’ve made a point to have a paella on special occasions, especially in the summer." http://buff.ly/14P7bLi

I started the series of Bosley books before we had children.  Knowing that we would be starting a family in the coming years I wanted to be ready and I used that dream of a family as inspiration to write the first book.

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's curator insight, October 15, 2013 6:49 AM

I knew that second language learning would be very important to me as we took our first steps into parenthood.  I loved learning French from my mother as a child, it always made me feel proud that I knew something the other kids didn’t, like secret code words.  And martial arts has always fostered my interest in Asian culture and language, so when the opportunity arose to take a trip to Japan during high school I did everything I could to make that happen (with a little help from my parents).  I made some life-long friends that I still communicate with there today and have worked very hard to keep up a good working knowledge of Japanese.  I’m not fluent by any means, but I can “get by”.  Japanese resonates with the workings of my own engineering brain in that it is very structured, and rule based.  There is virtually no ambiguity in the language as compared to others (including English) that have silent letters, and rules seemingly made up on the fly.  So I like the language and am excited to have my children learn it with me.  (Selfishly, I really just want more people to practice Japanese with!)

SPAIN: ItsasFish - New mobile application for rapid identification of fish species

SPAIN: ItsasFish - New mobile application for rapid identification of fish species | Visit Spain | Scoop.it

Esta guía realizada por el centro tecnológico AZTI-Tecnalia (www.azti.es) pretende ser un manual de identificación rápida de las especies que aparecen en los caladeros del golfo de Bizkaia y que son explotados por las distintas flotas (con sus correspondientes modalidades de pesca), con puerto base en la Comunidad Autónoma Vasca. Por supuesto, no refleja todas las especies existentes en la zona sino sólo las que son accesibles a los distintos aparejos, redes y artefactos de pesca utilizados por dichas flotas.

El objetivo primario de esta aplicación es servir de herramienta para una primera aproximación a la diversidad faunística que podemos encontrar a bordo tras las operaciones de pesca y, por lo tanto, no se limita a las especies que presentan un claro interés comercial, sino que tiene intención de recoger información sobre aquellas especies que no son objetivo de nuestros barcos pero que tienen un cierto interés comercial (bycatch) o que son descartadas en su totalidad por no ser aptas para su consumo o comercialización (descartes).

Cada especie está presentada con una cabecera en donde figura el nombre oficial y el código FAO de la especie, el nombre científico, la foto y los nombres comunes si los hay, tanto en euskera como en inglés y francés. A continuación hay unas breves notas sobre la distribución, tanto geográfica como batimétrica y algunos datos sobre hábitat y biología (alimentación, crecimiento y reproducción). Se aportan, así mismo, algunas notas sobre los caracteres distintivos de la especie, la posible confusión y diferenciación con especies similares y el tipo de pesca en la que suele aparecer. Por último, se especifica si es una especie de interés comercial o no y en el margen derecho se presenta su posición taxonómica.

 

AZTI-Tecnalia has presented (for the moment only for Android  terminals) ItsasFish, a new mobile application which aims to be a manual  for the rapid identification of species found in the fishing grounds of  the Bay of Biscay and which are fished by the various fleets (each with  their mode of fishing) based in the Autonomous Community of the Basque  Country or Euskadi (the coast of the Basque provinces of Bizkaia and  Gipuzkoa). Of course, this does not reflect all the existing species in  the zone but only those accessible to the various nets and other fishing  gear used by these fleets. The technological centre is working on 80  new species records, which will be published successively on the  application.

 

The main objective of this application is to act as a tool for an  initial approach to the animal diversity that we can find on board after  such fishing expeditions. Thus, it is not limited to species that have a  clear commercial interest, but also aims to gather information on those  species that, while not being the target of our fishing vessels, do  have a certain commercial interest (bycatch) or are totally discarded as  not being fit for human consumption or commercialisation (discards).

 

Each species is presented with a label providing its official name  and the FAO code of the species, its scientific name in Latin, a  photograph of it and its common names in Basque, English and French.  Then there are some brief notes about its distribution, both geographic  and bathymetric, and certain data on habitat and biology (feeding,  growth patterns and reproduction). Also provided are notes about the  distinctive features of the species, possible confusions that may arise  and the how to differentiate from other, similar species, as well as the  fishing mode with which it is normally caught. Finally, whether it is a  species of commercial interest or not and its taxonomic position are  specified.
