News Professor’s apartment site of escort service since 2007 TAYLOR MORRIS Staff Writer A University of Hawai‘i professor is being scrutinized after it was discovered that his apartment was functioning as the headquarters of a prostitution service. The Volcano Girls operation is doing business out of University of Hawai‘i West O‘ahu professor Lawrence W. Boyd’s complex, as proven by an undercover journalist at the Hawai‘i Reporter. On Jan. 20, a Hawai‘i

Reporter staff member booked an appointment with an escort named “Kendra,” which took place in a bedroom of Boyd’s apartment. A related arrest occurred on May 15, 2007, when an undercover Honolulu Police Officer made an appointment with another escort. When he arrived at Boyd’s apartment, the escort agreed to have sex with him for $325, at which point the escort was arrested. The escort, who went by the name of “Lisa,” was a 38-year-old Asian female, but her real name was blacked out on the police report.

Little information is currently available to the public about the Volcano Girls operation. Its website has recently been taken down, but one advertisement online gives a basic description. It reads “Volcano Girls offers Hawai‘i’s best girls and guys for private escorts. We’re an established agency, with over 15 years of sophistication and quality. Select from our wide variety of beautiful girls. Our incall location is conveniently located in Waikīkī. We also do bachelor, bachelorette, birthday and retirement parties.”

Students speak on food options CORAL UNTALAN Contributing Writer


Students Lilyan Koseki and Yayun Hsueh ready to enjoy their meal from Momo Burger.

With Paradise Palms closed down to prepare for a reopening under new management, three new food trucks have opened for business along Maile Way. Students report that the food is good – but lines are long, seating is hard to find and healthy options are few. According to UHM students, the clear winner in the food truck race is Momo Burger. Todd Taomae, a senior studying computer science, is a fan of the bacon cheeseburger. “It’s really good quality for a good price,” he explained. Taomae also said that he prefers the burgers at Momo to those Paradise Palms served before its closure. But many students and faculty complained of the long

wait time for a Momo burger. Some students reported having to wait upwards of 30 minutes in line, and then needing to wait for their food to be prepared. “I keep looking at my watch,” said one bystander. Eleanor Kleiber, who works at Hamilton Library, said she would prefer the trucks to offer some healthier choices. They’re “no more or less greasy than Paradise Palms … but some salads would be nice,” she said. In addition to healthier options, students also reported that they miss eating breakfast at Paradise Palms. The minimal seating around the food trucks has also been problematic. “I kind of miss Paradise Palms because you [could] sit down inside,” said Elynelle Dechoso, a sophomore studying microbiology. Some students said they looked forward to the eventual reopening of Paradise Palms. Austin Hartvigsen, a senior studying biology, and his friend Yarrow Simmons, a senior medical tech student, said they hope the new facility will be more like the version of Paradise Palms that came before this last iteration. “They had cheaper food and it was better, I thought,” Hartvigsen reminisced.

B U I L D I N G DA M AG E Over the past two weeks, several buildings in the main campus area have been damaged in such a way that falls under the classification of criminal property damage. These incidents took place on Jan. 25 at the Institute of Geophysics, Jan. 26 at the Paradise Palms cafeteria during its closed hours, Jan. 27 at both Webster and Moore Halls, Jan. 31 at the Biomedical building, Feb. 1 at the Hawai‘i English Language Program buildings, and Feb. 2 at Frear Hall and the Athletics Complex. The majority of the incidents took place in the later hours of the day and several in the late evening. Most incidents were described as graffiti.

F E B . 5 A DA N G E RO U S ENTERPRISE At Hale Wainani, three drug-related incidents were reported together. The first was listed under “drug offenses,” the second “drug paraphernalia” and the third “commercial promotion of marijuana II.” Drug possession is considered “commercial promotion” when 3 ounces or more are present.

JA N . 30 F R E E PA R K I N G At the biomedical sciences building in the late evening, an incident described as “unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle” occurred. Just a few days earlier, on Jan. 27, a reckless endangerment case was reported in the lowercampus parking structure.

JAN. 29 INJURY IN THE GYM During a Sunday evening event at Klum gym, a man was playing basketball and managed to deeply cut his foot just after midnight. Medical care was rendered quickly and the situation resolved.

TA K I N G A WA L K Two trespassing events occurred recently, one on Jan. 28 and the other on Feb. 5, at the Stan Sheriff Center and Athletics Complex respectively. Both events occurred in the late evening to early morning. The incident at Stan Sheriff involved alcohol possession. | Maria Kanai Editor |Alvin Park Associate

Weekend Venue Film Review


BACHMAN QUACH Staff Writer It’s sometimes easy to forget just how vulnerable we are, isolated in the middle of the Pacific. With the release of “Ingredients Hawai‘i,” director Robert Bates hopes to enlighten us to the efforts being made in our islands to revive our local food culture and traditions. “The idea of [the film] is to show people that there is this community that supports one another around this endeavor of locally produced food, and the benefits of a local food community are multi-dimensional,” said Bates in a phone interview. Part of a series, the preview of “Ingredients Hawai‘i” covers the island of O‘ahu and showcases the various ways people and groups have come together to strengthen our food community. Featuring interviews with members of such organizations as Ma‘o Farms, Paepae o He‘eia, and Mahuahua ‘Ai o Hoi, the film demonstrates a resurgence of traditional methods of farming in

Hawai’i that has been lost over a century of industrialization. On the other end of this process, we see how the harvest from these groups are inspiring chefs like Ed Kenney of Town restaurant and Mark Noguchi of He‘eia Pier to create dishes that capture the essence of our local food culture. With cinematographer Brian K immel behind the lens, the film is shot with color that displays the vibrancy of the islands, and his background with food programs is evident, as culinary scenes make you want to dash out to the featured restaurants. Unlike other documentaries that have covered the American food landscape, like “Food, Inc.,” this film doesn’t try to drag you down with discussions of the socioeconomical impact of processed foods or sustainability, making only brief mentions of the state’s rising obesity rates and dependence on imported food. Instead, the film asks us to become more active and aware of the efforts being made in our own communities to eat fresher and healthier.

“If you have any interest at all in this, jump in! You’re welcome; there’s people doing this in so many ways,” said Bates. “ We’re not tr ying to say that you have to be 100 percent local, but that you can do it in a way that you’re comfortable with.” Before going into this screening, I had a vague idea of the local food scene from the occasional organic shopping and dining at Town, but now I have a clearer and more open-minded idea of how large an effort is being made to maintain the vitality of local food. With the O‘ahu segment running at a brisk 30 minutes, it left me wanting to know more about food culture across the state and the other specialties of our neighbor islands. Coming soon to DV D, “Ingredients Hawai‘i” represents the collaboration of numerous groups and individuals dedicated in opening up new conversations over where our food comes from – and I’m definitely interested in seeing where it goes.

Although Wolf didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin by narrowing down submissions with a theme, the common thread emerged on its own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found as we were starting to accept things they were all starting to gel around the common theme of change.

But we’re still anti-piracy, right? JOHN SEYMOUR Contributing Writer

OK, so we seem to have stopped the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act – for now. And that’s good; the lax regulations in these bills could have caused more harm than good. But, as is increasingly typical in American discourse, we seem to have polarized ourselves into two extreme camps regarding this issue. And, as usual, that could be dangerous. When the issue of anti-piracy legislation comes up, we always hear the same stories. From the big studios, we hear that malicious pirates are stealing their profits; and from the other camp, it’s always a story of the evil “big media” companies throwing their lobbying money around

trying to preserve profits at the expense of our right to free speech. Somewhere in there, the viewpoint of the independent creative professionals – the kind of people not associated with the big mainstream companies – is getting lost. The night before the Internet protest blackout, The PBS program “Nightly Business Report” featured a brief piece about an animation director who, searching for reviews of the independent fi lm he and his team had just released, instead found websites offering illegal copies of his work for free. This rare mention of an independent creative professional in the debate about online piracy echoed my own concerns. My major is music; I make “classical” music for a living. Much like animation, this kind

of music is expensive to produce. Say I want to write a symphony and make a recording of it: I’d need to pay 40 to 80 musicians, buy microphones and recording equipment, and rent a large recording space. What bothered me most

always be “completely free and open”; they wouldn’t benefit from anti-piracy laws anyway. At some point, though, perhaps when we’re tired of looking at lolcats, we might find it worthwhile to invest in the creation of something with a higher production cost. Some of these works of entertainment are made not by the big produc-

If the people who want an ‘entirely free and open Internet’ get their way, I won’t be able to do anything to stop you from siphoning off my profits.... about the Internet blackout is that the sites participating were all sites that rely on low-production-cost, user-generated content – anything– and create revenue from either advertising or donations. It’s easy for sites like this to claim that the Internet should

tion companies with millions of lobbying dollars but by independent musicians, animators, filmmakers, game designers and software programmers. A nd the business model that uses low-cost content and ad-based revenue doesn’t work with more

expensive forms of media. If I have a website with hundreds of funny pictures, and a few get shared around the Internet, maybe people will come to my site to see more of them. But if I make a movie, then you copy it and put it on your website, you’re now pulling the advertising revenue, and all I can do is hope that people view it on my site instead of yours. I don’t have a hundred more movies on my site because it was expensive just to make the one. A nd if the people who want an “entirely free and open Internet ” get their way, I won’t be able to do anything to stop you from siphoning off my profits. Some types of media may actually be worth protecting if we want art to thrive. If SOPA and PIPA are poorly written, then let’s work to rewrite them – and try to fi nd a sensible way to protect the investments of creative professionals.

West wild

The wild, M ARC A R AK AKI Sports Editor

At 6 foot 8, Nick West may turn some heads through appearance alone, but the sophomore middle blocker can best be described by one attribute: high energy. “I just try to bring as much energy as much as I can, just to fire up our side and keep the momentum going our way as much as I can,” West said. “If the other team can get in a couple good serves and a good rally, sometimes things can get dead. The only way sometimes we can get out of it is to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and rely on our high energy volleyball to get ourselves back in.” And his teammates seem to feed off that. “It’s great energy – all positive as well, so we like that,” senior libero Nick Castello said. “He’s a great player, great guy – can’t ask for much more from Nick West.”

O N C E A N A N T E AT E R West, a native of Orange, Calif., attended UC Ir vine for a year and a half before transferring to Hawai‘i. And the Warrior volleyball team will host the Anteaters on Friday (7 p.m.) and Sunday (5 p.m.) for a two-match series in the Stan Sheriff Center. “I remembered my freshman year, one of the fi rst trips they [UC Irvine] went on was traveling to Hawai‘i. And I thought, ‘wow, that’s got to be such a cool trip to go out to.’ And they come out here this year,” West said. “It wouldn’t have been as interesting if we had gone to Irvine. But nonetheless, it’s still a great matchup and I relish the opportunity to play those guys again and show them what I’ve done. “As a part of the game plan, I’m probably going to know some insider information that other teams won’t know because I knew the guys pretty personally for a year and a half.” Being on the Anteaters’ roster allowed West to become close with its players, including all-Amer-

ican senior opposite Carson Clark. Clark leads the Anteaters this season with 3.58 kills per set. “I know Carson pretty personally,” West said. “Me and him have a lot of history together – a lot good, some bad. All things aside, he’s a great volleyball player. He skies when he hits the ball. He played for the national team.” Last season, the Warriors traveled to Irvine, Calif. to play the Anteaters in the fi rst round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation playoffs. “I was at that game. It was in Crawford [Court],” West said. The match was moved to Crawford Court (800seat capacity) as opposed to the Bren Center (5,000seat capacity) because of scheduling confl icts.

N OW A WA R R I O R West was instrumental in Hawai‘i’s two road wins last weekend against Pacific, where he combined for 19 kills and four errors. But he feels most satisfied when the team gets the win. “There’s lots of ways to rate my performance. But really the only stat that matters at the end of the day is getting that ‘W.’ There’s always room for improvement. I feel like I haven’t had my most productive game that I can have yet,” West said. “Serving is defi nitely something that I want to work on – [but] I want to work on everything. I want to hit harder, I want to block better and I want to serve as best as I can.” A nd head coach Charlie Wade is excited to see what West can bring to the team as the year progresses. “He’s got great energy,” Wade said. “Sometimes it may be a little over the top, but he’s working on it. This is new for him. He hasn’t competed really since he was in high school. He’s three years out, so this is a different venue than he’s ever competed in. He’s a real energetic guy despite the fact that he’s [6 foot 8] and got a nice arm. He’s going to be a really good player for us. He’s kind of learning to manage his emotions and come out here to play to the best of his ability – all night, every night.”


After spending one and a half years with UC Irvine, Warrior middle blocker Nick West will lead the Warriors against the Anteaters this weekend.
