Steve Jobs’ Multiple Diets: The Apple genius fasted a lot, followed juice diets, and often ate single foods for weeks (like apples, fittingly). Also, he once spit out soup with butter in it. [EW]

Bluefin Tuna Laws Ineffective: Although the “catch” numbers of endangered bluefin tuna are down, trade numbers have actually increased. Countries are selling more than twice the standard, meaning bluefin is still being overfished. [Mother Jones]
