comment Raw fish on Shabbos
I think something is not muktzah if it has a permitted use to it; now that sushi is popular, raw fish has a permitted use, namely eating.

comment Halakhic International Date Line issues
Rabbi Blumenkranz ZT"L has an article about it in his Pesach book "The Laws of Pesach". He is known to be a strict authority, but he basically recommends not spending Pesach in Hawaii.

comment Can sefardim eat lafa before Pesach?
