Protesters question university promotion of APEC
K ELSEY A MOS News Editor A group of about 15 people protesting perceived university support for the Asia-Paciﬁ c Economic Cooperation marched from McCarthy Mall to Bachman Lawn Wednesday morning, trailed by members of the local media. The group targeted the “Welcome APEC” sign on the corner of University Avenue and Dole Street as a sign of dissent, using tape to cross out “Welcome” and “E Komo Mai,” and adding “Sucks” after APEC. “For the university to put up something that is politically motivated is unfair,” said Caterina Desiato, one of the protesters. The sign on Bachman Lawn, along with one on East-West Road, have been up for most of the semester. But on Wednesday the APEC Sucks protesters, led by sociology professor Nandita Sharma and art professor Gaye Chan, along with organizers from Revolution Books, decided to direct attention to the signs as symbols of what they perceive as the university’s approval of the policies and vision of the APEC conference. “We delivered a petition to [University of Hawai‘i System] President [M.R.C.] Greenwood today, demanding that the ‘Welcome APEC’ signs ... be taken down,” said Sharma. “What APEC stands for is going to be quite devastating for the vast majority of people in Hawai‘i and the world, and speciﬁcally on the UH campus. It’s a complete atrocity that President Greenwood has decided to use our

campus as a mechanism to deliver APEC propaganda to the community here at Mānoa, instead of engaging in an intellectual debate on the topic on campus.” Sharma also pointed out that the sign on Bachman Lawn is usually used to promote internal UH matters, such as welcoming students back to school or making announcements. When asked what the administration’s reaction was to the protest and the petition, Associate Vice President of External Affairs and University Relations Lynne Waters gave this response: “University administration has been at today’s Board of Regents meeting, which continued into the afternoon. A representative received the petition from the march today and will present the petition to the president.” As Waters noted, the protest coincided

O C T. 22 : S T U D E N T H O U S I N G F L A S H MO B? Resident advisors, Campus Security and HPD officers dealt with a floorwide party in Hale Wainani from 10:45 p.m.-12:30 a.m. on Oct. 22-23. The residents of several rooms were not compliant with RA requests to have all nonresidents leave. Reportedly, about half of the 150 people present were walking around with open containers of alcohol. The group was eventually sent down the makai stairwell, where HPD assisted CS officers and housing staff with dispersing all non-University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa students. The residents of the rooms were let back in after being screened. O C T. 21: H O U S I N G HARASSMENT On Oct. 20 at 2:45 p.m., a resident of Hale Aloha reported being harassed and threatened by his roommate and the roommate’s friend Oct. 10-19. On Oct. 10, their door was egged, and the roommate engaged in a public verbal confrontation with a person he suspected was responsible. The roommate also allowed a friend to stay in the room for more than three days (which is a housing violation), causing the victim to feel alienated from his own room. The victim allegedly had several conversations with his RA about the egging incident and was supposedly told to deal with it himself. The suspect then claimed that he was told by their RA to ask the roommate to move out. This led to a confrontation between the two roommates on See Campus Beat, next page

The petition to remove the “Welcome APEC” signs, hosted on www.change.org, has received 149 signatures as of Oct. 27. with Wednesday’s Board of Regents meeting, at which the new tuition schedule was approved. The new schedule will raise resident tuition by 35 percent by 2016. “I can’t even believe that UH is spending its resources to do something like this,” said Sharma, referring to the cost of the signs. Though the protesters will have to wait for a response, they were adamant in their opinions. “It [the sign] is not something for the university to put up without consulting the very strong and very legitimate critics,” said Desiato. Arnie Saiki, the coordinator for the Moana Nui Conference, was also in attendance at the protest. “I’m here giving solidarity to some of the other anti-APEC contingents,” he said. The Moana Nui conference is a collaboration between Pua Mohala I Ka Po and the International Forum on Globalization. It will take place Nov. 9 -11 and will function as an opportunity for scholars, activists and cultural practitioners from Pacific Islands to meet and discuss environmental degradation, militarization, and the economic independence of Pacific nations
they feel are underrepresented in A PEC. “Even within the protest movement, they [indigenous people of the Paciﬁ c] are underrepresented,” said Saiki. Saiki said that Moana Nui will focus on farmers, ﬁ sherpeople and practitioners who are among the most impacted by globalization. Ten farmers from Japan will be in attendance to discuss resisting trade agreements. “One of the problems with trade agreements is maybe a tenth deals with trade and tariffs. The other 9/10 deal with corporate consolidation and deals with backdoor paths for … consolidating worldwide power and resources,” said Saiki. The next protest by the APEC Sucks group will take place Thursday, Nov. 3 at 4:00 p.m. and will involve a march from McCarthy Mall to Campus Center, where the UHM APEC Night, an event hosted by the UHM APEC Interns and the School of Travel Industry Management, will be taking place. The event will feature free food, information about the APEC member economies, and the announcement of the winners of the APEC video contest.

Oct. 19. The victim then began moving his things out of the room and contacted an assistant residence director about his situation. The ARD was able to relocate the victim on Oct. 21. O C T. 18: M I L I TA RY M E N SHOOT STUDENTS … W I T H PA I N T BA L L S At 1:18 a.m., a black sedan with a male driver, female front seat passenger and male back seat passenger was seen shooting paintballs at vehicles parked in the Zone 20 parking structure. The shooter was the male in the back seat. The vehicle was then seen with its emergency lights on, and was passed by a male and female UH student on a motorcycle. Both the motorcycle’s driver and passenger were shot at and hit twice as they passed by. The car then sped off and got past a CS officer that had used his vehicle to block the lanes at the top of Lower Campus Road. The vehicle took off down Dole Street toward Diamond Head. HPD caught the car and detained it in the parking lot of the Fat Greek before arresting both men (identified as military) for assault in the third degree. T H E F T A N D AC C I D E N T U P DAT E This semester, there have been 20 bicycle thefts, three mo-ped thefts and seven skateboard accidents reported to Campus Security. The injuries from the skateboard accidents varied in degree from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones. None of the bikes or mo-peds have been recovered so far.
Students, officials respond to Krauss problem M AT T SYLVA Columnist Since the coverage of ongoing problems at Krauss Hall Pond, more students and faculty have begun to show an interest in the pond’s future. “We were thinking, what if we get students to do it [clean up the pond]. … If liability’s an issue, then we could just sign some waivers,” stated University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa students Chyloe LeanGuerro, Piper Kublick and Katie Tweedie. In response to this suggestion, Roxanne Adams of Buildings and Grounds explained that students can volunteer with the landscaping department, but will need to contact the Ofﬁce of the General Counsel for liability issues. As the coverage of Krauss Pond has unfolded, the university has learned the green color of Krauss Pond is due to a cyanobacteria and not an organic green dye, as was originally stated. Professor Klaus Sattler originally brought up the question of cyanobacteria through studies he conducted on the pond water, and the Microbiology Department then performed its own tests. Ka Leo also reported that Adams had contacted the Environmental Health and Safety Ofﬁce to conduct tests on the water. It said there was a layer of green dye on the top of the pond, which was possibly caused by vandalism. “When the problem was brought to our attention, there was no mention that the green coloration had been there for months. We responded assuming that the color had recently appeared, which may be why we concluded that it was from a suspension of a dye,” said Roy Takekawa of EHSO in an email.
There have been no further updates from EHSO about the ﬁndings of the Microbiology Department. The cyanobacteria do not appear to be toxic, as the ducks and turtles seem unaffected. If the ducks are an endangered native species, UH will have to approach the future of Krauss Pond cautiously. “I do not know for certain (as I am not a water fowl expert) if the ducks are native,” responded Adams via email, when asked about the ducks at Krauss Pond. “I have contacted someone in CTAHR-NREM [College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources Natural Resources and Environmental Management] to help us make that determination.” The question now remains as to what will be done with Krauss Pond. In the short term, Buildings and Grounds will be bringing in contractors to pump out the pond and to look at all three of UH Mānoa’s water features, which include Krauss Pond, the John Young Museum of Art water garden and the Varney Circle fountain. Adams said she suspects there may be a leak in Krauss Pond or its system. “I remember it looking pretty nasty. I think it would be awesome if we ﬁ xed the ﬁ ltration system, cleaned up the pond and possibly installed a small waterfall. The waterfall could create movement of the water, rather than letting it be so stagnant and develop bacteria. … A lot more people would hang out and relax by the pond if it was cleaner and had a relaxing waterfall sound,” said student Micah Kidd over Facebook. But student Elizabeth Henry expressed another view. “Well ... if it’s not hurting the ducks or ﬁsh or whatever might live there, then just leave it be,” she said over Facebook. “It has a little charm to it, being green and all. Very Kermitesque.” NIK SEU/ KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

NICK WEBSTER Staff Writer Every year, weâ€™re inundated with war ďŹ lms spanning years of human conďŹ‚ ict. However, itâ€™s not often that a ďŹ lm chooses to focus on the home front, and the effects war has on everyday people. Making its U.S. debut at the Hawaiâ€˜i International Film Festival, â€œĂ‰clairâ€? is a Japanese ďŹ lm about a young orphan during the middle years of World War II. Based on an autobiographical novel, the ďŹ lm follows young Akio throughout Japan through the postwar period. In an opening scene, Akio is seen running from a police ofďŹ cer after stealing sweets from a local merchant. The ofďŹ cer recognizes him as a runaway, and offers him more sweets to satisfy his appetite. From there, Akio is sent to a reform school. His teachers are extremely strict and abusive. The brutality of Japanese nationalism is on display at this point in the ďŹ lm. The boys are told that they are doing nothing for the country, and amidst the abuse, are told they will be turned into something useful. The exception to the rule is the lone female teacher at the school. Akio hears her playing a song on the piano about two young French girls deciding on which sweets to buy. Upon seeing her playing an encore of the song for Akio, one of the male teachers at the school forbids her to play it, as itâ€™s a song of the Western enemies.
Despite the interruption, she does explain to Akio what an ĂŠclair is. He spends the rest of the ďŹ lm longing for the sweet; it serves as his symbol of hope in a time of crisis. Perhaps most impressive about â€œĂ‰clairâ€? is how critical it is of the Japanese government during WWII. Other Japanese ďŹ lms have tended to focus solely on events such as the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, whereas â€œĂ‰clairâ€? points to the Japanese as the perpetrators of wrongdoing. Akio refers to the war as something started by adults out of selfishness, and heâ€™s not alone in his discontent. Akio is reunited with the police ofďŹ cer from earlier in the ďŹ lm. His wife ďŹ xes him some sweets, but becomes emotional. Her son has died from an illness, but she goes on to say that she was thankful she was at least able to have his ashes. Had he gone to war, he would have died and never returned home. Later in the ďŹ lm, Akio joins a group of traveling performers. When one is called up for the draft, he ends up committing suicide rather than reporting to war. Upon this dis-
covery, one of the other actors admits to being a draft dodger, and the group disbands. This sense of discontentment among the Japanese people is prevalent throughout the ďŹ lm, and it effectively shows how the war disrupted everyday life in Japan. It is also worth noting that the area where the ďŹ lm was shot was devastated by the tsunami this past spring. The buildings and several of the extras shown in the ďŹ lm were lost during the disaster. VERDICT: â€œĂ‰clairâ€? is an emotional drama about a young boy during wartime. It shows the side of war most of us are never exposed to. Despite a somewhat awkward ending, itâ€™s worth viewing.

Local eating challenges test the palate ISABELLA H ASTINGS Staff Writer
topping choices, weighing between 7 to 8 pounds,” said Brett Callis, Director of Restaurants at the Hilton Waikīkī Beach Hotel. “The cinnamon streusel and blueberry weigh closer to 5 or 6 pounds, but they are much sweeter than the other flavors and contestants are often overwhelmed by the sweet flavors.” In the ﬁ ve years that Mac 24/7 has been holding the Mac Daddy Pancake Challenge, only 39 people have been able to complete it, and only one person has been able to complete it twice. Despite the low success rate, over 100 Mac Daddy pancakes are served everyday. If guests successfully complete the challenge, not only is their massive pancake free, they also get a free T-shirt and a picture taken to put on the wall of fame and Mac 24/7’s website. “Most of the time families or groups of people come in and get the Mac Daddy to share amongst themselves,” said Callis. “Only about ﬁ ve of the 100 or so Mac Daddys ordered every day are intended for the competition.”
The hordes of tourists visiting the islands year round don’t generally come for eating challenges, but Hawai‘i is home to some of the most difﬁ cult. Among them are Moose McGillycuddy’s “The Moose Omelette Omelette” challenge and Mac 24/7’s “Mac Daddy Pancake Challenge.” Moose McGillycuddy’s Pub & Cafe, open at its Waikīkī location since 1980, offers an omeletteeating challenge featuring a meal that includes 12 eggs, four kinds of cheese, four kinds of meats, mushrooms and onions, as well as a side of 2 pounds of potatoes and a piece of toast. “We’ve had a couple of Olympians attempt it, as well as an 86-pound girl and a dog ﬁnish it,” said Tony Miloni, the general manager of Moose McGillycuddy’s. Hundreds of people have successfully completed the challenge of ﬁ nishing the monster omelette within the required equired one hour (one person managed to ﬁ nish it within ithin eight minutes). Winners get their name put on a plaque that documents their weight and the timee it took them to complete the challenge, as well ll as a souvenir T-shirt. The challenge allenge has even been featured on national television: evision: Adam R ichman of Man v. Food Nation, ion, which airs on the Travel Channel, nnel, attempted the Moose Omelette melette Omelette challenge last st month. Though people won’t know whether her Richman succeeded in n the challenge until the he episode premieres on n Nov. 30, we do know that Richman was nott able to complete the he infamous Mac Daddy Pancake Challenge llenge at Mac 24/7. In this challenge, the three 14-inch pancakes ncakes vary between n 5 to 8 pounds, depending ending on the choicee of the ﬁ ve availablee toppings contestants pick for the challenge. “The ‘Elvis lvis Presley,’ baTHEGIRLSNY/FLICKR nana chocolate te chunk and Hawaiian ﬂ avors are re the heaviest of the The pineapple, coconut and macadamia nut pancake at Mac 24/7 costs $16.

Wait, did you just…? JUSTIN F R ANCISCO Columnist You and your female partner are in the heat of the moment. You two are steaming with sweat, your muscles tense, sounds of pleasure emit from both of you and suddenly, splash. But wait, it wasn’t you. Her? Thoughts run rampant. Not truly sure what just happened, you look down to feel a warm, watery substance. You look back up at her face. Your ﬁ rst thought: urine? Not quite. For a female, this event may range from embarrassment to sexual ecstasy. For a man, it can range from disgust to confusion to the ultimate sexual accomplishment. I am talking of course about the infamous female ejaculation that surpasses the mere orgasm. Not all women are physi-
ologically capable of it. Not all men are sexually adept enough for it. If you have yet to exxperience it, that’s because it isn’t commonplace. Because e of its rarity, sometimes men don’t know how to react – and, d, as a result, some women tend d to feel embarrassed or ashamed. But note that this woman is a very special woman. As we all know, every female is different. Thus, the amount of fluid can vary from a few drops to a few cups. Research has yielded several theories (since they don’t fully know) that it is produced in the notorious G-spot. From the reported experiments, similar chemicals have been found that include high levels of glucose; the enzyme prostatic acid phosphatase; and two substances

c o m monly found in urine, urea and c reatinine. Other than tha that, it is still t largely a mystery. Dr. Kenneth Davidson of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire polled 1,200 professional women in the U.S. and Canada and concluded, “Ejaculation seems to occur more frequently with the second or third orgasm – in other words, after prolonged, intense stimulation.” What is conclusive is this: It’s very wet. It ranges from clear in color to cloudy. It’s very warm. It’s odorless. And it squirts. A female (who wished to stay anonymous) shared her first experience: “My boyfriend and I were making love after he told me he loved me for the ﬁ rst time. During the second round, he was working to satisfy me while I was on top. All I could think about was our passion, his love and my pleasure. Suddenly, a feeling that started in my core rushed throughout my body. Euphoric. “It lingered in my groin and upper thighs and I felt my face ﬂ ash with heat. All [of a] sudden I collapsed in his arms, my body heavy. Because I had transcended from my body, I didn’t even realize I was sitting in a puddle until he mentioned his body was soaked. I felt embarrassed, but he reassured me he couldn’t be happier to please me to the fullest.”

Campus cuisine: the need for a makeover
SHINICHI TOYAMA/ KA LEO O HAWAI‘I
With so many fast food options on campus, students may find it difficult to purchase low-calorie yet filling options.
A NALIESE DANNER Staff Writer As a self-proclaimed foodie and islandcuisine fanatic, I expected to be bombarded by a cornucopia of tasty local treats in my new Hawaiian home on the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa campus. After all, my numerous visits to the islands before moving to O‘ahu left me craving the delicious local bounty I had enjoyed in Hawai‘i. While searching for a nutritious snack at Campus Center between classes, I found myself confronted with very few options: candy, cookies, chips and Promax bars. Few – if any – of these products are produced locally, and all are highly processed and do little to sustain health and energy.
While a few food stands on campus provide healthy and palatable vegetarian lunches as an alternative to the fast food joints on campus (namely Taco Bell and Pizza Hut), when it comes to snacking options our campus is seriously lacking. When I’m out around the island and need something to eat, almost every market I wander into has a variety of healthy local goodies ranging from granola to handmade popsicles to fresh poke. So why are these staples not making it to campus? As Hawai‘i’s only public university system, we should set an example of the opportunities our island provides to nourish our students to the fullest, and the campus should carry the best foods the islands have to offer. We should be supporting the local
production and distribution of foods by buying healthy products that are made here on the islands. A few weeks ago, while perusing the aisles of the bookstore for a suitable snack, I had a chance meeting with a few individuals from Maui Peace Organics, a health-conscious food company. MPO is known for its Maui Peace Superfood Bar and Maui Xtreme Sportsynergy Bar, the latter of which was featured at the recent Maui Marathon. I was told the company focuses on respecting the planet and “spreading peace through giving back, eco [friendly] business practices and individual life-afﬁ rming experiences.” The MPO representatives informed me they would soon be selling their bars at the bookstore, and I was thrilled that the cam-
pus was incorporating a local product into its inventory. I was also able to sample the bar, and found it delicious and energizing. While this anecdote is a great start to the transformation of our campus cuisine, it should not be the one and only upgrade for snacks on campus. To keep this movement going, we need to insist on better nourishment for our student body by asking our distributors for local, sustainably produced, healthy food products on campus. If you know of a food or snack sold locally that you think should be available on campus, contact the distributor of that product and ask them to come to campus. Use your dollars to speak for you – buy products that are healthy and sustainable, and promote the well-being of Hawai‘i’s people.
