The Right Way To Eat Sushi, According To Renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa
 
02:58
Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants and Hotels and author of "Nobu: A Memoir," shares how to eat sushi the traditional Japanese way. The sushi master gave Business Insider some tips. 1. You don’t need extra Wasabi – there should always be inside, between the rice and fish. 2. You can use chopsticks or your fingers — it doesn’t matter. 3. A more traditional way of eating sushi is to take the fish, dip into soy and then put the wasabi on the middle of the fish. 4. For nigiri - make a half-turn, grab with chopsticks and dip into the soy sauce on the fish side. The rice shouldn’t touch the soy. 5. Ginger can be used to cleanse your pallet to clean the fish taste. 6. For sushi rolls – just a little dip of soy is needed. 7. All sushi should eaten in one bite. Chef Matsuhisa opened his first restaurant in 1987 in Los Angeles; today he owns 47. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.
How to stop people breaking into your Ford and replace the lock
 
03:44
Frustrated South African Ford owners have come up with some ingenious ways of protecting their EcoSports, Fiestas and Rangers from being broken into. This follows after a stream of hits on Ford vehicles in parking lots who have been targeted by syndicates that have found a way to break into the vehicles without setting the alarm off. In some cases, cars have been hit multiple times. Ford owners are fuming that they must fork out anywhere between R3,000 to R14,000 on lock replacement bills. A member, who wished to remain anonymous, posted this quick fix tutorial on how to remove the lock using a screw driver, an Allen key and a plastic knife. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.

This WW2-themed bar serves a £100 cocktail and takes 40 minutes to make
 
03:34
The Bletchley, a London-based codebreaking WW2-inspired bar, has a cocktail that costs R1,662 (£100). It’s called King George VI and its gin-based. They use three different liqueurs for the mix: Monkey 47 (gin), Lanique (rose vodka), and Chambord (raspberry liqueur.) "The recipe is coming from Montgomery Collins who was a British Air Force soldier during the Second World War and went to Germany to help them to rebuild everything back once the war was finished. Lanique is a Polish liqueur and the Chambord is French. Those two were helping England during the war," said Bar manager David Ammar. How its made: The mix is completed with fresh lemon juice and bitter lemon and infused with hibiscus tea, berries, lemon and orange peel. The infusion is chilled using dry ice and topped up with mascarpone foam, gold chocolates, edible diamonds, and caramel. It’s finished with gold leaves and sprinkles of gold. Guests also get a sparkling wine bomb made with an English garden jelly and a garnish of French toasts, Polish pancakes, chocolates, and lollipops. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.
A failed South African rocket launch ends with a spectacular bang
 
00:48
A rocket launch by students from the University of the KwaZulu Natal has failed in spectacular fashion. The Phoenix 1B Mark 2 was supposed to travel at twice the speed of sound and rise to an altitude of 15 km. Instead it came plummeting back to earth after launch, and then exploded. The Phoenix 1B is part of the UKZN’s Phoenix Hybrid Sounding Rocket Programme, which seeks to develop home-grown rockets to serve the needs of the South African and African scientific research communities. Sounding rockets carry payloads of experiments for bio-technology, astronomy, astrophysics, materials science and meteorology, among many others. The UKZN programme is an African first as no other sounding rocket programme exists on the continent. The research could cut out the need for local scientists to contract international launch services, operated out of countries like Sweden, Norway, Brazil, Australia, the United States and Japan. UKZN is currently the only South African university pursuing an applied rocket propulsion research programme which is funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

This Mercedes-Benz stretch van feels like a private jet
 
02:37
German aftermarket supplier Klassen builds only what can be described as private jets on wheels. The company takes premium vehicles and turns them into deluxe stretch limousines that cater to the demands of the most high-level clients. This Mercedes-Benz stretch V-Class van illustrates just how far the company lengthens factory vehicles in order to provide the space and comfort their customers desire. Inside passengers will find a huge flat-screen monitor with built-in PlayStation 4 and multimedia system, automatic folding tables, Champagne flutes, a coffee maker, a humidor, a biometric safe for your valuables, and more. In addition, everything from the interior lighting to the cabinets can be controlled remotely via iPad. According to Klassen's COO Samuel Klassenit can take 3 to 4 months to build one of these vans, depending on which options the customer would like to have. "Sometimes we have requests from customers to install a toilet, special multimedia systems, or extra controls. Sometimes they want to have the whole interior covered by special leather. We also have in our product range stretch cars and armored vehicles. Time to build a car like this can take approximately as one year," said Klassenit. As luxurious as Klassen's stretch V-Class is, it may not even be the most impressive offering in the company's extensive catalog which includes a stretch Mercedes-Maybach sedan and a Range Rover over 1 meter longer than its production model. "The most expensive vehicle we build for now is the Range Rover Autobiography. We stretch it by 1 meter, make it armored, and add many options that make for comfortable travel and luxury. And the price of this car is more than [R16 million]," said Klassenit. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.

How sumo wrestlers stay healthy on 29,000 kilojoules a day
 
00:51
Sumo wrestlers eat up to 29,000 kilojoules a day and weigh as much as 180 kilograms, or two to three times as much as the average adult. While that may not sound like the healthiest lifestyle, you shouldn't judge a book, or a body, by its cover. Normally, people with obesity store a portion of their extra fat deep inside the abdomen, where it wraps around the pancreas, liver, and other vital organs. We call this visceral fat. It pollutes the blood with molecules that can cause inflammation, and this is why obesity can lead to health issues like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and heart attacks. But sumo wrestlers don't usually suffer from these symptoms. So what's their trick? CT scans reveal that sumo wrestlers don't have much visceral fat at all. Instead, they store most of their fat right underneath the skin. That's why scientists think sumo wrestlers are healthy. They have normal levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in their blood, and unexpectedly low levels of cholesterol, both of which lower their risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. So how did they hit the jackpot on fat? The secret's in their name: sumo wrestler. Studies show that intense exercise may prevent the buildup of visceral fat. Basically, it has to do with how exercise increases a hormone called adiponectin. Adiponectin guides glucose and fat molecules out of our blood stream, where they could build up as visceral fat, and instead puts them underneath the skin. Mind you, sumo wrestlers get a lot of exercise. At a sumo stable, or heya, in Japan, training starts as early as 5am and can last for up to 5 hours straight, and it's nothing like what you'd expect to find at your typical group fitness class. For example, during an exercise called butsukari-geiko, wrestlers take turns repeatedly hitting and pushing each other until they collapse to the floor from exhaustion. And then, of course, there's the match, where wrestlers try to shove their opponent out of the ring or force them to touch the ground with any body part other than the soles of their feet. But as soon as the exercise stops, so does its benefits. When sumo wrestlers retire, they have to seriously cut calories or they become at risk for cardiovascular disease. That might explain why retired wrestlers reportedly die an estimated 10 years younger than the average Japanese citizen. So while the thought of eating 29,000 kilojoules a day might be appealing, you probably shouldn't. Unless you're spending most of your day trying to topple a 180kg man. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.
What happens to your body during an ultramarathon
 
02:40
Ultramarathons are a growing sport globally. In these gruelling tests of human endurance, your body can go through a lot of stress. In 2018, more than 108,000 people finished ultramarathons in the United States alone. An ultramarathon is any race longer than 42 kilometres. Races can range anywhere from 50 to over 4,000 kilometres. But one of the more common lengths covers about 100 kilometres and takes, on average, 17 hours to finish. In some of the longer races, half of the runners never see the finish line. Because these races not only push you to your mental limit, they take a toll on your body both inside and out. Ultra-runners endure pretty extreme conditions. The Badwater Ultramarathon, for example, covers over 4,000 meters of elevation through Death Valley, in one of the hottest months of the year. Temperatures reach up to 47 degrees Celsius, causing headaches and dizziness in many runners. But even if you're running in more comfortable weather, you could be feeling sick to your stomach. One of the most common issues in any ultramarathon is nausea and/or vomiting. It affects about 37% of people who complete a race, but it's also the number one reason runners won't finish in the first place. That's because running disrupts your digestion. It diverts blood away from your stomach to your muscles. And since ultramarathons last so long, many races provide sandwiches, pasta, and other carb-loaded meals. As a result, that food will sit around undigested, causing problems. But if your stomach isn't slowing you down, your eyes could be causing you grief. Windy conditions can dry out or damage the cells that pump a protective liquid layer over your cornea, which can cause your cornea to swell up and blur your vision. During the Hellgate 100K for example, runners report losing most of their vision by the end. They call it "Hellgate Eyes." But no amount of protection or preparation can prevent one symptom: Sleepiness. For a 17-hour race, it might not be so bad. But longer races can stretch to more than 24 hours, which can make sleepy runners more prone to trips and falls or worse, hallucinations. The Barkley Marathons, for example, is a race where runners are given 60 hours to finish 161 km. In 2005, one runner reported that he thought he saw houses at the top of the mountain and believed he was their garbageman sent to pick up the trash. Despite all these health hazards, ultrarunning is a growing sport. One study found that compared to marathoners, ultrarunners are more likely to do it for nature and a sense of purpose than for the competitive aspect. So if you're up for the challenge, plenty of races are on trails through natural areas, so at least you'll get a great view. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.

This 3-wheeled car saved an entire aerospace company
 
02:20
Microcars, those tiny cars that look like they barely fit one person, typically powered by a motorcycle engine, and most importantly, affordable. In the '50s, they could be seen puttering down European streets. As silly as a lot of these cars looked, they were actually a big business. So big, in fact, that one actually saved an aerospace company from going out of business. This is the Messerschmitt KR200. KR stands for Kabinenroller, which translates to "cabin scooter." It's a pretty accurate description of the car since it has a motorcycle engine and handlebars for a steering wheel. Preceding the KR200 was the Fend Flitzer, a microcar conceived by German designer Fritz Fend. The full potential of the Fend Flitzer wouldn't be realized until after World War II. When a postwar ban on aircraft production in Germany went in effect, airplane manufacturer Messerschmitt AG had to look for other ways to stay in business. Fortunately for them, Fend,the guy behind the Fend Flitzer, lacked the resources to mass-produce his vehicle. In 1952, Fend approached Messerschmitt to make his car, the Fend Flitzer into a production car. They agreed that was a good idea, and so they hired him to basically take his design and improve upon it. The reult was the KR200 which kept Messerschmitt floating. In the end they made about 25,000 Messerschmitt microcars. Those 25,000 KR200s kept the Messerschmitt AG manufacturing plant busy and brought in enough income to keep the lights on for the duration of the ban on airplane production. And in 1956, Messerschmitt was allowed to go back to making airplanes they sold the car to Fritz Fend, and he continued to build cars until 1964. Today, the KR200 finds its way into the collections of nostalgic car enthusiasts and people who find the microcar era fascinating, like Mark Hatten. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.
Here's why pearls are so expensive.
 
00:47
Pearls have been a symbol of elegance and class for centuries. From the Maharajas of India and European queens who adorned themselves with pearls as a symbol of their prestige to 2018's Catholic Church-inspired Met Gala, where celebrities walked the red carpet dripping in pearls. Uma Thurman's dress had over 3,000 white pearls sewn to it, while Rihanna's pope-inspired outfit was encrusted in pearls. At the 2019 Grammys, Cardi B was basically dressed like an oyster. The most expensive pearl ever sold was Marie Antoinette's pendant. It sold for R459 million in a 2018 auction. Marie Antoinette's pearl was part of a diamond-studded pendant, and it has important historical significance, which increased its value. But there are several other factors that determine the value of a pearl. “Assessing the value of a pearl is probably the most complex gem to assess,” said Tom Moses, a gemmologist at the Gemological Institute of America, where he oversees diamond grading, coloured stone identification, and pearl identification. He says because it's a natural pearl, one of the key factors when it comes to determining value. Natural pearls are hard to find. They're rare, and this makes them worth more money. Natural pearls form when some kind of irritant, usually a small organism, makes its way into the shell of a mollusc like an oyster or a mussel. To protect itself from the invader, the mollusc starts to coat the debris with nacre, or mother-of-pearl, the same material that lines the inner layer of its shell. It continues doing this, and the irritant grows into a shiny pearl. Cultured pearls are formed by the same process, but instead of the irritant entering the shell accidentally, it's put there intentionally by a human. Pearl farmers insert a piece of mollusc tissue, which is called donor tissue, into the shell of the oyster where they want the pearl to grow. This triggers the oyster's defence response, and it starts coating that piece of tissue with nacre. The vast majority of pearls on the market are cultured pearls. The Gemological Institute of America uses X-rays to tell if a pearl is natural or cultured. If you look closely you can see the difference. According to Moses, under scrutiny a natural pearl would have all of those concentric layers of growth from the very inside out. A cultured pearl, on the other hand, is like an orange, with a large centre and a thinner layer of pearl growth around that. The large centre is the manmade irritant placed in the shell to encourage nacre formation. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider SA on Twitter: https://bit.ly/2FWYoVE Follow Business Insider SA on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2G5BZBx Follow Business Insider SA on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2DOPrb0 Read more on Business Insider SA: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/ -------------------------------------------------- Fast, fair, fearless and fun – this is the Business Insider way.
