      ACADEME TODAY: The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Daily Report for subscribers
      ______________________________________________________________

      Good day!

      Here are news bulletins from The Chronicle of Higher Education
      for Thursday, November 16.

      *  THE PRESIDENT of the American Anthropological Association
         announced on Wednesday that the organization's executive
         board had decided to consider an investigation into possible
         professional misconduct by the anthropologist Napoleon
         Chagnon during his research on the Yanomamo tribe of South
         America. Officials of the association described the action as
         almost unprecedented in its history.

      INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

      *  COMMUNITY COLLEGES are better suited to educate people to
         work in information-technology careers than the many private
         companies that now conduct such training, a college
         administrator told his colleagues Wednesday at the annual
         Conference on Technology of the League for Innovation in the
         Community College.

      distance education? Join us Friday at 12:30 p.m., U.S. Eastern
      time, for a live discussion of those questions, direct from the

      EX LIBRIS: Margaret Mead and anthropology were lifelines for a
      woman coming to grips with her sexuality in the 50's and 60's,
      writes Esther Newton, a professor of anthropology at Purchase
      College of the State University of New York.

      A glance at the November/December issue of "Foreign Policy":
      The globalization of sushi

      The sushi market has undergone vast globalization in recent
      decades, writes Theodore C. Bestor. Mr. Bestor, a professor of
      anthropology and associate director of the East Asia Program at
      Cornell University, describes the Japanese demand for bluefin
      tuna, which supports an industry that stretches from Japan to
      the small-scale fisheries of New England to enormous Spanish
      tuna pens near the Strait of Gibraltar. "The tuna trade is a
      prime example of the globalization of a regional industry, with
      intense international competition and thorny environmental
      regulations; centuries-old practices combined with high
      technology; realignments of labor and capital in response to
      international regulation; shifting markets; and the diffusion of
      culinary culture as tastes for sushi, and bluefin tuna, spread
      worldwide." Since "sushi has become not just cool, but popular,"
      bluefin tuna, once primarily sport fish and cat-food fodder, has
      topped off at a wholesale price of $34 per kilogram, writes Mr.
      Bestor. Though the global tuna trade is centered in Tsukiji,
      Tokyo's renowned wholesale seafood market, the process from
      start to finish is oftentimes a united effort, such as in the
      case of a tuna farm off the coast of Cartagena: "The waters and
      the workers are Spanish, but almost everything else is a part of
      a global flow of techniques and capital: financing from major
      Japanese trading companies; Japanese vessels to tend the nets;
      aquacultural techniques developed in Australia; vitamin
      supplements from European pharmaceutical giants packed into
      frozen herring from Holland to be heaved over the gunwales for
      the tuna; plus computer models of feeding schedules, weight
      gains, and target prices developed by Japanese technicians and
      fishery scientists." Globalization aside, sushi remains a
      Japanese undertaking through and through, as restaurants demand
      "authentic" sushi chefs and Japanese buyers worldwide instruct
      locals on "proper techniques for catching, handling, and packing
      tuna for export." The article is available online at
