GREEN ALGAE.

Thanks. I'll see what I can do with that.



Now, Mr Gone, you may have control over my dreams, but I still have control over my .45.

Kris,

Is Green Algae all you needed? Does that mean something to you?

Do we need to work on the puzzles found in this video more, or is that all?

Seems like you are struggling with a lot lately. If there is something us at the forum can help you with, just ask.

Actually, I do. Everytime I make it to the West Coast, I make a point to visit as many good sushi bars as I can.

Quote:
Green algae are the large group of algae from which the embryophytes (higher plants) emerged.


Quote:
Seaweeds are extensively used as food by coastal peoples, particularly in East Asia, e.g. China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam, but also in Indonesia, Peru, the Canadian Maritimes, Scandinavia, Ireland, Wales, Philippines, and Scotland, among other places. For example, Porphyra is a red alga used in Wales to make laverbread. In Asia, nori is a food composed of sheets of dried Porphyra and is used in soups or to wrap sushi.
...

Medicine

In the biomedicine and pharmaceutical industries, alginates are used in wound dressings, and production of dental moulds and have a host of other applications. In microbiology research, agar[red algae] is extensively used as culture medium. Carrageenans[red algae], alginates[brown algae] and agaroses (the latter are prepared from agar by purification), together with other lesser-known macroalgal polysaccharides, also have several important biological activities or applications in biomedicine.[citation needed]

It has been asserted that seaweeds may have curative properties for tuberculosis, arthritis, colds and influenza, worm infestations and even tumors [1].[dubious see talk page] A number of research studies have been conducted to investigate these claims and other effects of seaweed on human health [2].[citation needed]


So, there's [dubious] stuff about medicinal uses of red and brown algae, but I couldn't find (or was too lazy to dig deeper) anything about green algae's medical or biological properties, other than the presence of chlorophyll and chloroplasts for energy conversion.

I don't think nori-wrapped sushi would help, since apparently nori (Porphyra) is a red algae.

I feel like I am grasping at straws.

Green Nori Sprinkle

Green Nori Sprinkle is a different variety of sea vegetable to sheet nori, containing significantly higher levels of minerals, making it a nourishing as well as tasty condiment to keep handy for serving with all kinds of food.

Clearspring Green Nori Sprinkle is Enteromorpha spp., wild harvested and dried in Japan.

FYI - I also see it listed as Aonori.

Good find sting.

Quote:
Aonori (Japanese: 青海苔) or green laver is a type of edible green seaweed, including species from the genera Monostroma and Enteromorpha of Ulvaceae.

It is grown up in some bay areas, such as Isewan, in Japan. It contains rich minerals such as calcium, magnesium, lithium, vitamins, and amino acids such as methionine.

It is used for Japanese soups, tempura, and material for manufacturing dried nori and tsukudani. In dried powder form Ulva species of Ulvaceae may used together with aonori, as its production is limited.

It is used commonly for flavouring of some Japanese foods, usually by sprinkling the powder on the hot food, for its aroma:

* Fried noodles (Yakisoba or Yakiudon)
* Okonomiyaki
* Takoyaki (octopus ball)
* Isobe age
* Isobe mochi
* Shichimi


Ulvaceae are definitely green algae. Still not for sushi, but I'm sure most sushi bars in SF have a shaker or two filled with the stuff. Hope you find it appetizing, Kris.

I have searched all the normal spots for a new link.
Such as youtube, bebo, revver, myspace, blogspot, tinyurl.
I searched aonori, green nori, green-nori, enteromorpha

I don't know how else to work with this?

not that this necessarily relates to algae
but I am afraid the genie has been poisoning Kris.
Kris has been acting sick, and drinking all the time. According to Mary he is not well.

I think the genie has gotten into his head.
