From high atop key trafﬁc lights and street signs, three faces survey thousands of University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa commuters. These ceramic masks are an art project called MiGrate, created by English and art major Michael Moore. The three faces are part of a larger series of identical ceramic masks installed at major intersections throughout Mānoa and Makiki.

Power outage holds up homework SHERLEY WETHERHOLD Special Issues Editor A power outage caused by a run-off-road collision on University Avenue (between Maile Way and Kaâ€˜ala Street) left some 1,000 Hawaiian Electric customers without power and snuffed the trafďŹ c signal at East MÄ noa Road Monday night. Jen, a graduate student at UH MÄ noa who asked not to be identiďŹ ed, saw what looked and sounded like ďŹ reworks from her window in lower MÄ noa at 11 p.m. She said she was startled to see showers of light coming from a utility pole. Luckily, Jen had ďŹ nished her homework ahead of time. But other University of Hawaiâ€˜i at MÄ noa students in the surrounding area scrambled to ďŹ nd Internet access to ďŹ nish last-minute assignments; some driving to friendsâ€™ houses, while others headed to Kissaten, a 24-hour coffee shop. Sarah Ching, who was biking home from a late-night run to the Safeway in MÄ noa Marketplace, suddenly found herself
in complete darkness on Oâ€˜ahu Avenue. â€œIt was really creepy. My bike light is usually fine, Iâ€™d never biked when the streetlights werenâ€™t on. I could barely see 2 feet in front of me. â€Ś All the cars had their high-beams on, and it was even harder to see,â€? she said. Others reported a â€œburning rubberâ€? smell. W hile UH students tried to finish assignments, students and faculty at Mid-Pacific Institute, University Avenue Baptist Preschool, St. Francis School and MÄ noa Valley Church Pre school woke up to another day off after the long weekend due to the outage. Some 250 homes in the area were still without electricity in the morning. Power was fully restored to the area by Tuesday evening. Police say there were two people in the car at the time of the crash; one was in serious condition and was brought to the Queenâ€™s Medical Center, while the other did not suffer any major injuries. It is suspected that alcohol was involved.

A fter consulting an adviser, the staffer called Campus Se curity half an hour later. W hen CS arrived on scene, the area was cordoned off and the entire building, including Mānoa Garden and Ba-L e, was evacuated. “Bomb threats are usually made just to disrupt things, but we can’t take that chance with people’s lives,” said Dawson. He explained that CS’s policy is to react to all bomb threats as if they were real. HPD was contacted and they searched the building, giving an all clear by about 5 p.m. and letting people return to work. No one was hurt and no bomb was found. Dawson said that a few years ago there were four to five bomb threats a week on campus, especially during midterms and finals. “I don’t know why it stopped,” he said. This threat did not seem to be aimed at disrupting classes, ANYSSA KARNKAENG / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I and also was not related to the bomb threats that happened last semester during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings.

Mask tasks from front page MiGrate began as a class project for Moore, who started making masks last spring. It took him about four hours to make the first mask. The rest took him months, but by the time he was finished, he had 10 masks that he placed in different locations. Now, six have disappeared. â€œ The idea that someone took the masks sparked all kinds of questions about the installation and inspired an extrapolation of my original concept,â€? said Moore. As an English major, formulating a narrative appealed to him. â€œI started thinking about where did it go, how would I find out where it went?â€? He formulated a story about 10 brothers who are looking for their missing brother, and attached instructions to the back of the masks for people to re-hang them, take photos and post on Facebook. â€œMy hope is for a little conversation,â€? Moore said, â€œto get people talking about art.â€? As whimsical as they seem, the sculptures comment on issues central to contemporary art, such as challenging viewers to question the way they interact with art and mixing sculpture with alternative media. â€œItâ€™s nondestructive, just clamps on metal,â€? said Moore. â€œBut there is still the element of grafďŹ ti art. However, people can interact, either in a vandalist way themselves or as participants.â€? The remaining MiGrate members continue to generate buzz online through the Facebook page. Friends and viewers have already begun posting photos and comments. â€œItâ€™s like ceramic grafďŹ ti,â€? said business student Jessie Hironaga, who worked in the ceramics studio as MiGrate developed, â€œbut instead of vandalizing the space, this enhances it.â€? The installation reveals how objects are accompanied by a contextual frame, which provides semantic information regarding their function and setting. MiGrate challenges the way people experience objects, and offers an interactive alternative to viewing art.

‘Le Samouraï’ still worth the watch BACHMAN QUACH Staff Writer Film noir is a genre often imitated, yet rarely perfected. With classic tales of the criminal underworld, moody contrasts of dark and light, and timelessly cool style, it’s easy to understand why the genre is so popular. Though originally an American concept, it has since been embraced by ﬁ lmmakers everywhere, and one prime example is the French classic “Le Samouraï.” Released in 1967, this neo-noir ﬁ lm follows the character Jef Costello, a killer for hire who operates with a zen-like calm and a near obsessive-compulsive dedication to his routines. The story revolves around the fallout of his latest hit, as he enters a game of cat and mouse with police hot on his trail. Every scene is propelled to the next with tension as Costello evades his pursuers – cop and criminal alike. Director Jean-Pierre Melville, widely regarded as one of the founding members of the French New Wave movement, displays confidence in deftly synthesizing a
variety of international sensibilities. From the opening “quote” from the book of Bushido to the curious spelling and references in the name Jef Costello, the movie can easily be seen as a love letter to the many influences in Melville’s life. With the help of cinematographer Henri Decaë, he captures the streets of Paris in cloudy tones of blue and gray, giving the film an air of cold detachment that matches the demeanor of his protagonist. Alain Delon gives an amazing performance as Costello, portraying him as nearsilent, preferring to let his steely gaze do the talking. Constantly planning with meticulous precision, his piercing blue eyes scan the landscape, breaking through the fog of his desaturated surroundings as he uncovers solutions. Costello, with his taciturn code of conduct and classic fashion of trenchcoats and fedoras, is very much a man out of time – a last “samurai” of sorts in the Paris crime world. Numerous ﬁlmmakers, such as Quentin Tarantino and John Woo, have praised Melville as a great inﬂuence for their directing styles. Melville himself can be seen as a pro-

“Le Samouraï” is credited as a major influence on many other films, including John Woo’s “The Killer” and Jim Jarmusch’s “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.” totype of Tarantino without the self-awareness, taking his love of American style like rock music and Ray-Bans, and combining it with a willful disregard for cinematic conventions to create a style all his own. It is easy to see why the DVD is available
through the Criterion Collection. I highly recommend any fan of avant-garde cinema and all students of ﬁlmmaking seek out “Le Samouraï” as a prime study in the art of ﬁlm noir.

EDWARD H ICKMAN Staff Writer If having the right look decided campaigns, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney would have probably won the GOP candidacy weeks ago. Standing at a slim 6 foot 2, he towers over fellow candidate Newt Gingrich (who comes in at a portly 5 foot 10). Now you may laugh at such a seemingly pointless comparison – until I point out that in the 21 presidential elections from 1904 to 1984, the taller candidate won 80 percent of the time.
SKIN DEEP So what does that mean by extrapolation? It means the A merican voting base tends
to be shallow. Apparently, we don’t care if your policies are backward and don’t make sense as long as you’ve got a veneer that matches up with our pre conceived notions about what a leader looks like. Looks, of course, are only skin deep, so what makes Mitt Romney the protean ﬁ gure? He’s come storming out of Massachusetts (a liberal stomping ground) in the hopes of leading a party that has become synonymous with the word “conservative” (albeit not traditionally or ﬁscally conservative). The very fact that he can be a frontrunner for the GOP candidacy after being the key ﬁ gure in enacting a universal health care system that ensures nearly all Massachusetts residents receive
nce coverage (which would insurance normally make any GOP member point and scream “socialism!” “socialism!”)) suggests that Romney the political ﬁ gure is occupying a space of profound contradiction.
MO N E Y M A N What about Romney the man? For starters, he stands above the other candidates not only in physical height, but in wealth. Exactly how tall of a bank account are we talking about here? Well, if you combined the wealth of the past eight presidents, you’d still fall short. There’s been a lot of talk about the 1 percent. Ol’ Romney, with a net worth of $190 -250 million, falls in at about the .006 percent mark. Even among the top 1 per-
cent, he stands out – doubly so as a political candidate. To put it bluntly, the candi candidate with the most money usually wins. In the past six presidential elections, the only candidate who managed to win with a smaller coffer was Bill Clinton, but we don’t call him Slick Willy for nothing. In the House, the candidate who raises the most money wins a whopping 93 percent of the time, and in the Senate it’s even worse, at 94 percent. As the old saying goes, “money talks, bulls--- walks.” If the tallest candidate with the most money stands the best chance of winning, surely Romney is the odds-on favorite to win the GOP candidacy. He’s certainly the guy I’d put my money on, even if I think he

doesn’t stand a chance of going toe -to-toe with Obama come general election time. But the real question we should all be asking ourselves in light of this information is this: Are we OK with money being a deciding factor in most campaigns? The Occupy Wall Street movement certainly isn’t OK with that, which is why “getting money out of politics” is often cited as one of its chief concerns. It will take a dramatic shift for that to happen. But if it means we can start choosing our political candidates on the merit of their platforms and put a stop to the corruption caused by the constant need for candidates to fundraise, we should be prepared to go as far as it takes.

Supply and demand d odi dity y iinnnThe value of a commodity ilab il abil il-il creases when the availabiloess oe ity of that object goes down. If you aren’t al-ways available, romantically or platonically, you are more desirable. Poor communication n a id d to o ccomom ommOften, people are afraid e ell in i ngs gss b eemunicate their true fe feelings because of the fear of being rejected or creating awkwardness. Damaged goods Some wounds take time to heal. Don’t think a new relationship is the bandage; hurt people need you to console him/her as a friend, not a lover.
THE DILEMMA Most guys are shy. When we ﬁnally do become familiar enough to feel comfortable, we are even more reluctant to make moves because we are worried about jeopardizing a friendship that might suffer the

Freshman Taylor Averill fought his way into the starting lineup midseason, while senior middle blocker Jarrod Lofy started every match this season. Breaking from Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference play will also help the Warriors regroup after losing two straight matches to then No. 1 UCL A . â€œFor us, with a young team, we need to compete,â€? Wade said. â€œWeâ€™re doing a fair amount of things well pretty regularly, and we just got to sustain it. We got one guy playing good or two guys playing good; we need three or four guys playing good. We can play good for most of the game; we need to play good for the entire game. Itâ€™s a bye week for us, and we need to keep playing.â€? â€œIt â€™s just a matter of refining,â€? senior middle blocker Jarrod L of y said. â€œ We just need to refine a few small things â€“ be able to hit out of system, be able to put away balls when we need them.

Bridging the gap M ARC A R AK AKI Sports Editor The University of Hawai‘i Athletics Department ’s vision stretches nearly 4,000 miles be yond Hawai‘i’s shores. “We’re doing all that we can to reach out to Asia,” athletics director Jim Donovan said. “I think that ’s, strategically, one of our long-term goals – is to build better relationships with Japan and potentially China and Australia, the Asia-Pacific region.” And progress is being made. “I did go over to a couple of seminars with [former football] coach [Greg] McMackin to meet some coaches in Japan coaching A merican football,” Donovan said. “A nd we do have a company that ’s been able to get some of our women’s volleyball games, men’s basketball
games and football games on a cable net work in Tokyo on a delayed basis. “I would say that we’re up to around 40 or 50 broadcasts within the last three years. That ’s about half a million to 600,000 households. We’re talking about playing a football game in Japan in the future, and [men’s basketball coach] Gib [A rnold] just finished the circuit with China and Japan.” The Rainbow Warrior basketball team played five games in Asia this past summer, but this Friday and Sunday, the No. 13 Warrior volleyball team (6 -9) is set to host Nittaidai from Japan in two exhibition matches. “We want to do our part too and help get exposure,” head coach Charlie Wade said. “That’s part of it with Jim Donovan and kind of the big picture of [getting] more exposure into the Paciﬁ c Rim.” See Taking, page 15
