‘We are not going to see that money again’ K ARLEANNE M ATTHEWS Senior Staff Writer With many details still unclear about who is to blame for the $200,000 Stevie Wonder concert loss, Senate Special Committee on Accountability member Sen. Sam Slom headed to Florida to investigate directly. “I am absolutely assured at this point that there was a scam. But to say it was a sophisticated scam, as the university president maintained, is ludicrous,” said Slom when he reported back in an Oct. 2 hearing. “Anyone that would have done any checking whatsoever – which would have been the very basics in due diligence – would have determined that this agency [Epic Talent] is not what it purports to be.” A website previously claimed that Epic Talent represented Stevie Wonder, among other such stars as Katy Perry, Adele and Taylor Swift. Until representatives of Wonder contacted the university to say that the performer had no knowledge of the event, local organizers thought that everything was on track. But Slom expressed frustration that no university officials more thoroughly investigated the agency in question. “A nyone who would have looked at the website … would have found out it was very amateurish, had a lot of typos and would have questioned its authenticity,” Slom said. The address given on the website, in North Miami Gardens, is a residence in a run-down district. Slom noted that the home in question is the listed address for not only Epic Talent, but also a mattress company and a painting company. A second address, in nearby Miramar, Fla., was also given on the website. This address belongs to a UPS drop site in a strip mall.

ʻR E D F L AG S ʼ

Slom also attempted to gather information at an Orlando branch of Bank of America, to which the wire transfer was sent, but the branch manager refused to discuss the issue or provide related documentation. Slom speculated that she is aware of the ongoing investigation. “There were so many red fl ags,” Slom said. “It was just incredible to me that the university was so willing to send money.” Earlier in the hearing, Rich Sheriff, arena manager of Stan Sheriff Center, said that the wire transfer was pushed through because promoter Bob Peyton felt the deal might fall through because a check would be too slow. “It is my belief … we are not going to see that money again,” Slom concluded. “The real scam … is on the taxpayers of the State of Hawai‘i. And I think it is incumbent upon the university … to help the state resolve these kinds of issues so that they don’t don t happen again.” again.

NICHOLAS SMITH / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

Sen. Sam Slom emphasized that his investigation – which earned him the nickname “Sherlock Slom” from committee chair Sen. Donna Mercado Kim – was not financed by taxpayer funds.

Apple speaks on Donovan appointment Chancellor claims that hire was needed, economical K ARLEANNE M AT THEWS Senior Staff Writer

A State Senate hearing on Oct. 2 provided more details on Chancellor Thomas Apple’s decision to appoint former Athletics Director Jim Donovan to a $204,000-peryear position in the chancellor’s office in the aftermath of the botched Stevie Wonder concert. Apple said he didn’t create the new position from nothing – there were two marketing positions that had not been fi lled. “I’m not free to just expand my budget,” he said. The decision was made after several offers and counteroffers between Donovan’s attorney and the university. Donovan’s initial desire was to stay in his position as athletics director for 18 months at his current salar y, at which point he would be able to take an early retirement. A later offer asked that he be given a five-year vice-chancellor position under Apple, and that the university buy out his current contract (set to expire in 2013) and cover $40,000 in lawyer’s fees. Apple’s office countered by offering Donovan a three-year appointment in a marketing position in the chancellor’s office and $30,000 in legal fees.

ʻA P E R F E C T F I T ʼ Apple was adamant that he intended to fill this position before Donovan’s suspension from the athletics department. “There’s no doubt that Jim Donovan and this position are a perfect fit,” Apple said. “I put him in a position we desperately need.” The chancellor said he may have caused some confusion in a

previous press conference, when he appeared unable to give information about the position, but he said the only thing that had not yet been decided was the position’s official title. Apple also claimed that putting Donovan in this position results in a savings of $40,000 per year; Donovan’s salary will be in the 22nd percentile for comparable positions, and the median salary for this position is $240,000. Sen. Donna Mercado Kim, however, questioned the idea that the university would have had to pay a higher salary to find another qualified applicant. “I would put money down that you would get people for less than that, in this town, at this time,” she said.

W H O S E C A L L? Sen. Ronald Kouchi also questioned Apple’s authority to make the decision to place Donovan in the marketing position in the first place. The agree ment included only a $30,000 payout in legal fees, which is be low the $500,000 mark at which the Board of Regents must be included in the decision. But Kouchi argued that the entire settle ment includes the salar y for the three -year contract, which exceeds that threshold. “It seems clear in your mind that this is a settlement,” Kouchi said. “If it is, and it exceeds half a million dollars, which this agreement obviously does, then by board policy it should have been up to the board. “If the board will not fight for their rights and put them in a position to better do their job … I am certainly going to tr y to advocate on their behalf.”

Student Housing Services epresentatives held two meetings on Monday and Tuesday evening to discuss the effectiveness of a new policy created in response to complaints from residents and Campus Security about the wild parties and disrespectful behavior toward university staff at Hale Noelani and Hale Wainani. Complaints by residents about the out-of-control parties

and drug and alcohol abuse at the MÄ noa Apartments forced SHS to implement the new policy at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, according to an e-mail sent to the apartment’s residents. “Since the beginning of the semester, we’ve been having a lot of complaints about noise and intoxicated people have been verbally abusive to residents, staff and to each other,â€? Associate Director of Housing Nick Sweeton said. “ The goal of the meeting was to engage the

community in responding to the problem. If we engage the community, then the resolution to the problems will be better.� According to testimony from the resident advisers present at the Monday meeting, the new policy has been respected by most of the students of Wainani and has received positive praise. Although it was stated that some students felt repressed by the new implementations, R As said they can only see the situations getting better.

Misconduct of University and Student Housing Services policies entail disciplinary action. W H AT I S T H E N E W P O L I C Y? The e-mail sent to both Wainani and Noelani residents by the Office of Residential Life elaborates on the rules and regulations that have been put in place to secure the students’ happiness and safety, including the involvement of the Honolulu Police Department. “In order to address the safety needs of staff and residents; and to help us address the large amount of violations of the Alcohol, Illegal Drug, and Noise policies, Honolulu Police will be on site on various weekends,� the email states. “Residents who are intoxicated or violating state law regarding alcohol may be cited and fined on the spot.� The e-mail also divulges some heavier consequences of the new policy, including immediate relocation of anyone caught hosting loud parties or who are abusive to other residents and possible immediate eviction from on-campus

housing of any resident found guilty of abusive behavior. The consequences for continued abusive behavior become more severe, including judicial hearings for those who are found responsible for violating the Noise Policy and permanent relocation to other housing assignments outside of the apartment area, according to the email.

DO take chances. Deciding to study in Japan changed my life for the better – but it was because I was ready to step out of my comfort zone. In a foreign country, even the way the toilets work may be an uncomfortable experience. Keeping an open mind and taking chances will make your time abroad enjoyable.

DONʼT let it stop you from making friends. Because keeping in touch was so easy, I had to remind myself to not rely on it too much. I went abroad to make new friends and have new experiences, so I couldn’t let myself get bogged down by my laptop. I met friends from Japan, the U.S. and other countries, too. Being friendly and introducing yourself is the fi rst step to making life-long friends.

DONʼT rely on English. Being thrown into a foreign country forced me to use the language daily. It was refreshing to be able to express myself in my native language while studying with other English speakers, but I had come a long way to get accustomed to Japanese so I made a point to use it as often as I could. It would be a waste to spend a semester or a year abroad and only learn a handful of elementary-level phrases.

Fish fun with ‘Blinky’ ROMAN K ALINOWSKI Contributing Writer The use of nuclear fission for electric power is unacceptable and must be phased out immediately to prevent further environmental contamination. Do you remember the Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011? At least six nuclear reactors across two power plants melted down as a result of a 9.0 -magnitude earthquake and 45 -foot tsunami. Fukushima is now the worst nuclear power accident in history, yet its effects receive little coverage in the Associated Press or other mainstream media outlets. The Japanese government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company went to extreme lengths to try to contain public panic, and withheld crucial information from the citizens of Japan about the level

of danger present. Contractors working to contain the radiation seeping out of Fukushima Daiichi and Daini power plants were forced by their employer to put lead boxes over their dosimeters, deliberately recording false radiation readings to deceive the media and public at large.

H I D D E N R I S K S? The island of Japan is more densely populated than the area surrounding Chernobyl, making the lasting effects of Fukushima even more devastating. In addition to airborne exposure to radioactive iodine, cesium, strontium and plutonium, the Japanese are continuing to fish the seas and ingest radioactive particles. Fish caught off the coast of Japan have tested for up to 258 -times the maximum legal limit for radiation. One of the main dangers of radiation expo -

sure is cancer, but genetic mutations may not present themselves until the next generation of offspring. “The Simpsons” episode where Bart catches a three-eyed fish near the nuclear power plant is funny on television but discomforting in reality. Near a nuclear plant in Argentina, a real “Blinky” was caught – another negative impact of nuclear power. Nuclear radiation has already caused noticeable defects in local Japanese populations of butterf lies with deformed wings, mutated antennae and strange color patterns. The entire eastern side of the island of Japan should have been evacuated after the Fukushima reactors were hit with the earthquake and tsunami, but instead the Japanese government suppressed, and continues to suppress, information for the sake of public order.

Eddie Palmieri & Brian Lynch Quartet featuring Dafnis Prieto and Luques Curtis

SHAYNA DIAMOND / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

WAT C H YO U R ʻA H I The Fukushima nuclear disaster is dire for Japan – but it also directly affects Hawai‘i. Just last week, the fi rst of the debris from the disaster reached the islands. This batch had normal levels of radiation, but part of the five million tons of future debris will be composed of various hazardous materials, including radioactive particles. Hawai‘i currently imports seafood, rice and other high-risk food from Japan. If your food was produced or caught in Japan on or after March 11, 2011, I would suggest running it by a Geiger counter.

Thankfully, the Japanese people have been very vocal in their widespread opposition to nuclear power, and as a result TEPCO has shut down almost all of their 50 nuclear reactors. In addition, the Japanese government plans to phase out nuclear power by 2030. The United States, Europe and the rest of the world must follow Japan’s lead against nuclear fission for power, unless they want an even worse nuclear disaster to take place. Or maybe you would prefer to dine on our three-eyed friend Blinky?

Wounded Warriors hope to bounce back JOEY R AMIREZ Associate Sports Editor Many expected a few bumps in the road during the fi rst year of the Norm Chow era of Warrior football. However, these bumps have grown as the University of Hawai‘i is coming off from back-to-back blowout losses to Nevada (69-24) and Brigham Young (47-0). The loss to BYU was the first time in 182 games that Hawai‘i (1-3, 0-1 Mountain West) had been shut out, and its 149 yards of total offense were the fewest since 1996. “It really challenges your manhood,” said junior quarterback Sean Schroeder. “It’s something I take personally. Anybody who’s on the offensive side of the ball is going to take it personally. We’re doing everything we can to not have a performance like that ever again. Hopefully this week we can bounce and put some points on the board and move the chains.”

I N J U R I E S P L AG U E D E F E N S E UH has allowed an average of 219.0 rushing yards per game this

season, which places them 106th in the country in rushing defense. The Warriors have also surrendered 41.8 points per game, which sets them at 116th in the nation and last in the Mountain West. Turning around these rankings will prove to be diffi cult without defensive tackles Moses Samia, who sustained a seasonending injury against Lamar, and Geordon Hanohano, who has retired from football following an injury during the BYU game. A third defensive tackle, Siasau Matagiese, was also carted off the field during the BYU game and his status is unsure for this week. “Of course it hurts losing your brothers, but it gives us something more to play for,” said senior defensive end Paipai Falemalu. “No one’s gonna feel sorry for us. We’re not gonna go to a game and the other team’s going to be like, ‘Oh, they’re short a guy. Maybe we’ll take it easy on them,’” said Falemalu. “We just gotta keep grinding, keep fighting, and keep playing to the best of our abilities.”

On the other sideline, San Diego o State (2-3, 0-1 Mountain West) is also on a two-game slide after falling lling to San Jose State and Fresno o State these past two weeks. “You want to win all your games you ou play,” said Schroeder. “So they’re going oing to be hungry [and] we’re hungry, ry, so it should be a good game.” Unlike UH, whose offense has mustered just 24 points in its past two wo games, San Diego State has been lighting ghting up the scoreboard with an average verage of 41.3 points in its past four games. The Aztec running game is ranked anked 16th in the country with an average of 233.8 yards per game. On the other hand, fellow ow defensive captain and junior unior cornerback Mike Edwards looks beyond assignments sign g ments and strategy when it comes to toppling the A ztecs.

“It’s going to come down to the will to win,” said Edwards. “ There’s talent on both teams and we know that with them being in San Diego and us being out here in Hawai‘i, we know that we [both] got a lot of great recruits. It just comes down to who wants it more and that’s what we’re trying to build as a team.” No matter what numbers show up on the score-

board, the one aspect of the game that Hawai‘i has refused to alter is its mentality to persevere. “We just got to come in with the attitude that, no matter what happens, we’re going to give it our all and just keep fighting ‘til the end,” said Falemalu.

On the road again: two matches in two days M ARC A R AK AKI Sports Editor

MARK ARAKAKI / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

Sophomore middle hitter Kalei Adolpho leads Hawai‘i in blocks (53) and is second in the Big West in hitting percentage (.354).

No. 8 Hawai‘i (12-2, 5-0 Big West Conference) will play in back-to-back road matches on consecutive days for the second time this season. This week, the Rainbow Wahine will play at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (1-14, 0-3 Big West) on Friday and then head over to play UC Santa Barbara (8-9, 1-2 Big West) on Saturday. Both matches will be at 4 p.m. HT. “[We need to] just have the right attitude going in and telling ourselves to pull out energy from deep down inside – not from just the physical body but mentally,” senior defensive specialist Emily Maeda said. “We really need to bring it out when we’re tired.” Unfortunately for the Rainbow Wahine, they will be without sophomore outside hitter Jane Croson, who has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Croson’s 192 kills (3.84 per set) are the team’s second-

most behind junior outside hitter Emily Hartong and rank fifth in the Big West.

A N E W RO U T I N E Despite Croson’s absence, the ‘Bows look to improve their performance when it comes to back-to-back road matches. In Hawai‘i’s last road trip, the ‘Bows played at UC Riverside and won in three sets but the next day played at Cal-State Fullerton and squeaked out a win in a five-set match. CSUF is currently 7-10 and 1-3 in the Big West. “We learned a lot from that match to not let up regardless of who’s in – the people who started or the people who’s coming in,” Maeda said. “Everyone has to do their job and not let up.” And a change to the timeline of the road trip will hopefully entail a better product on the court for the team. “Our Santa Barbara stay, we’ve never done this but we’re going from Cal Poly, check out like noon or 1 [p.m.] and go right

to pregame in Santa Barbara and then go right to the gym and do some serve and pass and wait around till the game,” head coach Dave Shoji said. Both the Mustangs and Gauchos have Hawai‘i ties. Cal Poly junior Chelsea Hardin (Iolani ‘09) and UCSB sophomore Ali Santi (Punahou ‘11) will each try to lead their teams past the Rainbow Wahine. “It’s always nice to see them because we played against them in club or in high school,” Maeda, a 2008 Roosevelt graduate, said.
