CHRISTINE PORATH: No Time to Be Nice at Work (NY Times)
MEAN bosses could have killed my father. I vividly recall walking into a hospital room outside of Cleveland to see my strong, athletic dad lying with electrodes strapped to his bare chest. What put him there? I believe it was work-related stress. For years he endured two uncivil bosses.
A tuna is a saltwater finfish that belongs to the tribe Thunnini, a sub-grouping of the mackerel family (Scombridae) which together with the tunas, also includes the bonitos, mackerels, andSpanish mackerels. Thunnini comprises fifteen species across five genera, the sizes of which vary greatly, ranging from the bullet tuna (max. length: 50 cm (1.6 ft), weight: 1.8 kg (4 lb)) up to the Atlantic bluefin tuna (max. length: 4.6 m (15 ft), weight: 684 kg (1,508 lb)). The bluefin averages 2 m (6.6 ft), and is believed to live for up to 50 years.
Japan is the biggest tuna consuming nation and is also the leader in tuna farming research. Japan first successfully farm-hatched and raised bluefin tuna in 1979. In 2002, it succeeded in completing the reproduction cycle and in 2007, completed a third generation.The farm breed is known as Kindai tuna.
Alan J was first, and correct, with:
I was going to say U.S.A. but decided that it must be Japan, because so many dolphins die in the hunt for tuna.
Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there.

Bryan Cranston isn't done with Walter White just yet, as the "Breaking Bad" star channeled the antihero at dance music festival Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. The actor made a special surprise appearance during British trance crew Above & Beyond's Saturday night set.
Just as Above & Beyond was about to play their 2013 song "Walter White," Heisenberg himself appeared onstage, with Cranston speaking into the microphone, "Say my name," a reference to one of the most famous and terrifying lines in "Breaking Bad."
After the audience burst into applause, Cranston continued with the bit, saying, "You're goddamn right."

A prominent Al-Jazeera journalist will remain in German custody for a second night, prosecutors said Sunday, adding they have not yet decided whether to extradite him to Egypt or set him free.
As dozens of supporters protested Sunday in front of the Berlin court building where Ahmed Mansour was being held, his lawyer, Fazli Altin, called for the journalist's immediate release, saying that Germany was getting involved in a politically tainted case.
Mansour, 52, a well-known journalist with the Qatar-based broadcaster's Arabic service, was detained at Berlin's Tegel airport on Saturday on an Egyptian arrest warrant, his lawyers said. Mansour, who holds dual Egyptian-British nationality, was trying to board a Qatar Airways flight to Doha, the station reported.
A government judicial official told the AP there would probably be a decision next week on whether Mansour has to remain in custody. In addition, the Berlin Court of Justice would decide - once it gets a request for extradition from Egypt - whether Mansour can be extradited or whether the case is politically motivated.

A postcard bearing a signed drawing by Picasso fetched a record $188,000 (166,000 euros) at auction on Saturday, the Gaertner auction house in southern Germany announced.
The sales set a "world record for a postcard", the auction house in Bietigheim-Bissingen said in a statement.
The buyer, described as a "trans-Atlantic collector", clinched the deal by telephone following frenzied bidding in German, English, French and Russian, the statement said.
The card from Pablo Picasso to his friend, French poet Guillaume Apollinaire, is dated September 5, 1918, and has an authenticated drawing that "can be considered part of the artist's cubist still life series," Gaertner said.
The postcard never made it to Apollinaire however because Picasso had addressed it in Spanish, writing his friend's name as Don Guillermo Apollinaire.
Democrats see a chance to pick up the Florida Senate seat being vacated by Republican Marco Rubio - but only if U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson stays out of the race.
Democratic leaders fear Grayson could spoil the party's chances for capturing the seat by challenging Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy in the primary. Rubio is running for president instead of seeking a second term.
Grayson, who is considering a Senate run, is known for using fiery rhetoric to knock down opponents. He made headlines for describing the GOP health plan as "don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly." He called a Republic opponent "Taliban Dan" in an effort to paint him as a religious extremist, compared the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan and called his estranged wife a gold digger during an explosive divorce.
Democratic leaders see Grayson, 57, as too inflammatory and too liberal to win a general election and have coalesced around Murphy, a 32-year-old accountant in his second congressional term. Party leaders see Murphy, who is the only prominent Democrat in the race so far, as a strong candidate and don't want him bloodied by Grayson's aggressive campaign tactics.
A former Republican, Murphy casts himself as a moderate in a state whose politics tend toward the middle. He isn't discussing the possibility of a Grayson challenge.

The construction of a $1.4 billion telescope on land considered sacred by some Native Hawaiians will resume Wednesday, according to the nonprofit company behind the project.
Henry Yang, chairman of the Thirty Meter Telescope Observatory Board, in a statement said the board decided to move forward after more than two months of consultations.
"Our period of inactivity has made us a better organization in the long run," Yang said. "We are now comfortable that we can be better stewards and better neighbors during our temporary and limited use of this precious land, which will allow us to explore the heavens and broaden the boundaries of science in the interest of humanity."
The telescope is planned for the summit of Mauna Kea on Hawaii's Big Island. It would be one of the world's largest telescopes.
The telescope project was developed as a collaboration between U.S. and Canada universities and the national institutes of Japan, China and India.

A former child actor who starred in one of the "Star Wars" movie sequels faces charges after leading South Carolina deputies on a high-speed chase.
Colleton County Sheriff's deputies on Wednesday arrested a 26-year-old man they confirmed through a former talent agent was Jake Lloyd, who played a young Anakin Skywalker in the 1999 movie "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace," Sgt. Kyle Strickland said Sunday.
The man was charged with failing to stop for officers and reckless driving after hitting speeds over 100 miles an hour, Strickland said.
The chase lasted for more than 25 miles before Lloyd drove off Interstate 95, plowed through a fence, and continued speeding along a parallel frontage road, authorities said. The road ended at a dead end, but the vehicle kept going into a wooded area before it hit several small trees and stopped.
Lloyd said in a 2012 interview that the role he performed when he was 10 years old made his youth hellish because he was bullied by other children. His last acting credit was in 2005, according to IMDB.com.

Watercolour paintings and drawings by Adolf Hitler from about a century ago were sold at auction in Germany at the weekend for nearly 400,000 euros ($450,000), organisers said.
The most expensive was a painting of King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, now a tourist magnet, which went to a buyer from China for 100,000 euros, Nuremberg-based Weidler auctioneers said, quoted by German news agency DPA.
A still-life of carnations changed hands for 73,000 euros and all of the works on offer, which date from 1904 to 1922, most signed A. Hitler, sold at the auction which ended Saturday.
Germany permits auction houses to sell the late Nazi leader's paintings as long as they do not feature any banned symbols.

In a box-office bout of Tyrannosaurus-sized proportions, "Jurassic World" kept the No. 1 spot with one of the biggest second weeks ever, while Pixar's "Inside Out" nearly matched it with a $91.1 million debut well above expectations.
The unexpected sensation of the Colin Trevorrow-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced fourth entry in the franchise had turned Disney's $175 million 3-D "Inside Out" into an underdog expected to merely nip at the heels of "Jurassic World." But the emotional "Inside Out," about the voices in the head of an 11-year-old girl, blew past its own forecasts to set records, too.
"Inside Out" was the first Pixar release not to open in first place, following an unparalleled two-decade streak of 14 straight no. 1s. But it's the largest opening for a wholly original movie (one not based on source material or a sequel), unseating "Avatar" in that distinction. Directed by Pete Docter ("Up") and co-directed by Ronaldo del Carmen, "Inside Out" had been expected to open in the range of previous Pixar non-sequels like "Wall-E" ($63.8 million opening) and "Brave" ($66.3 million).
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "Jurassic World," $102 million ($160.5 million international).
2. "Inside Out," $91.1 million ($41 million international).
3. "Spy," $10.5 million ($9.6 million international).
4. "San Andreas," $8.2 million ($18 million international).
5. "Dope," $6 million.
6. "Insidious Chapter 3," $4.1 million ($3 million international).
7. "Pitch Perfect 2," $3.3 million ($1 million international).
8. "Mad Max: Fury Road," $2.8 million ($4.9 million international).
9. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," $2.7 million.
10. "Tomorrowland," $2 million.
