ASUH connects with state lawmakers
Richard Mizusawa and ASUH senators met representatives, including K .Mark Takai, on Wednesday at the State Capitol. KENT NISHIMURA KA LEO O HAWAI‘I
JENNIFER DELEON Contributing Writer Seven Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i senators and their president went to the State Capitol on Wednesday for the opening day of the Hawai‘i State Legislature. ASUH members were there to network and establish relationships with alumni and lawmakers, particularly the members of the Hawai‘i Senate Committee for Higher Education. “The past few years that I’ve been here, that relationship has not been as prevalent as it should have been,” said ASUH President
Richard Mizusawa, who has been with ASUH since fall 2010. They were able to connect with Rep. K . Mark Takai, a former ASUH president, who reaffirmed his concern that the university is no longer affordable for local families. The ASUH 100th Senate hopes the connections made on Wednesday will evolve into long-term relationships, which is critical to their intended plans for this semester.
L O B BY I N G No agenda has been set, but Mizusawa explained that collaborating with administration before instituting lobbying campaigns is
strategic. If the lobbying goals of ASUH and the administration overlap, he wants the two to approach lawmakers in the same way. “We want to be a cohesive unit,” he said. Securing meetings with administration is the biggest hurdle. The next meeting with university administration is about the biennial budget. ASUH will meet Wednesday with Vice Chancellor for Administration, Finance and Operations Kathy Cutshaw.
C R E AT I N G C O N V E R S AT I O N In addition to their plans for collaboration, ASUH also intends to revamp their internal procedures.

In a meeting Tuesday night, the ASUH External Affairs Committee moved to ﬁ nalize plans for updating the ASUH website. They hope the website will increase transparency and invite students to voice their concerns. Draft legislations, meeting minutes and senators’ voting records will be more available and easier to ﬁnd. Dwane Tegman, chair of the External Affairs Committee, stressed the importance of their timely publication. Information in previous semesters, he said, wouldn’t be published until a few days before meetings, making them irrelevant. However, an exact launch date for the website is not yet available.

While the website will be a means for ASUH to inform students, there may be another way for students to communicate with their senate. Town hall meetings, such as those held by Chancellor Tom Apple, are one option. The idea came on Tuesday from ASUH Sen. Jennifer Wong from the College of Arts and Sciences. The goal is to create a forum that is not intimidating for students to express their concerns to ASUH. “When it’s the chancellor, students might not want to say something,” Wong said. “We are the student government, and students will be more comfortable telling us their concerns.”

K ARISSA MONTANIA Staff Writer The Golden Globe Awards is one of the most anticipated award shows of the year. And this year, new fashion trends ﬂourished – from sheer materials to baby-blue hues – allowing viewers to see which colors and styles shown on the red carpet that they could incorporate into their style. Consider these styles in your fashion choices for a night out.
S H E E R E M B RO I D E RY
Some actresses decided to show a little skin. Kate Hudson wore a slimming black Alexander McQueen gown with a gold collar and deep V-neck. Following in Hudson’s footsteps was nominee Emily Blunt, whose Michael Kors dress shimmered gold with triangular cutouts on the sides of her abdomen. Presenter Kristen Wiig wore a black Michael Kors dress with a plunging neckline and keyhole cutout. Cutout designs can be risqué but can look fashionable when done right. Keyhole and V-necks should be kept for nights out. Trending now are flowy, asymmetricall dresses with cutout de designs in the bodice. e
Many attendees opted for red. Jennifer Lawrence, whose performance in “Silver Linings Playbook” won her best actress in a motion picture (musical or comedy), outshone the red carpet itself with her ﬂoor-length Dior haute couture dress. Other actresses following the red fad were Naomi Watts in Zac Posen and Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta. Red is a versatile color for any wardrobe. Make sure that it is the only bright color on your outﬁt or accessory because you don’t want to look overdone. Try pairing a handbag with neutral clothes, or a deep crimson dress with muted hues on your shoes.
Many stars also showed up in sheer dresses with embroidered designs. “Django Unchained” star Kerry Washington made a statement in an icy white and beige Miu Miu gown with feather details. Jennifer Lopez wore a nude Zuhair Murad gown that gave the impression that the white lace detail on the dress was all she was wearing. Lace and sheer are ﬂattering, and on skirts or tops they can make your outﬁt provocative. For a sheer look, go for toned colors – like nudes and whites – but be wary of the details on the fabric. Too much embroidery can look ostentatious. enta tati ta t ou us.

The truth about jaywalking SAMANTHA IKEHAR A Contributing Writer
When I left Honolulu, I wondered how long it would be before the realization would hit me – I’m going to be living in London. It happened before my plane even began its descent. The differences between London and Honolulu are clear even from an altitude of 40,000 feet. There was everything I expected – the perpetual gray sky, brick buildings – and more once I landed. Even the pedestrians of London have a “pep in their step” not found in Hawai‘i – but their hastened pace leads to potential danger in the form of jaywalking.
Jaywalkers are everywhere in London, from Oxford Street to residential neighborhoods. Unlike in Hawai‘i, it is legal to jaywalk in London. The Department of Transport recommends that you follow the Green Cross Code: “Where there is a crossing nearby, use it. Otherwise, choose a place where you can see clearly in all directions.” Getting from one side of the street to the other is considered each pedestrian’s responsibility. Stewart Aldred, a native of the United Kingdom, jaywalks every day.
“I think it’s quite silly to make it illegal, to be honest,” he said. “Children need to be supervised, of course. But an adult knows the proper timing; if there are no cars coming, why shouldn’t you be able to cross? It’s a matter of common sense, really.” Maria Pitts, a student of University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, agrees, “People are going to jaywalk, even if you make it illegal. Hawai‘i is an example of that. So what is the point?”
L O O K I N G B O T H WAYS The New York Post called jaywalking a “foolish practice” that “needs to stop,” a sentiment echoed by The Boston Globe and The San Francisco Gate. Along with this argument comes statistics that report how many have lost their lives as a result of jaywalking. According to the National Highway Trafﬁc Safety Administration, there were 4,280 pedestrian fatalities recorded in the United States in 2010. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents reported 453 in the U.K. Tom Vanderbilt, author of “Trafﬁc: Why We Drive the Way We Do,” asserts that jaywalking is not the horrible deed it’s made out to be and that banning it doesn’t make
anyone safer. He argues that statistics suffer from a bias in favor of pedestrians, who have the right of way, making it easy for a pedestrian to shift fault to the driver. The cause of pedestrian casualties is not jaywalking, but rather a lack of viable and safe options for those on foot. Perhaps Vanderbilt is right: It is not jaywalking that is the problem, but a multitude of other factors. With the number of cars growing every year, it is easy to forget that the road is supposed to be shared. Both drivers and pedestrians must slow down, and crosswalks should be utilized. Maybe the occasional trot across the road – when done safely the London way – is not as bad as we think.

The UH sailing team looks to win the Peter Wenner Rainbow Invitational for the third year in a row on Saturday and Sunday. SYDNEY C HESTNUT Staff Writer Four years after the tragic death of University of Hawai‘i sailing team member Peter Wenner, his legacy lives on. The UH sailing team will compete in the Peter Wenner Rainbow Invitational this Saturday at Ke‘ehi Lagoon in remembrance of their fallen comrade. “He really was the ‘heart and soul’ of the team and a good friend,” head coach Andy Johnson said. “It seemed ﬁtting to dedicate his legacy after the regatta, so that’s what we did, and I think it was a real good move.” Wenner’s competitive spirit and passion for sailing will be honored by the UH sailing team as they take on teams from places as varied as Rhode Island and Japan. “Mainly we just like to have fun, show the other teams a good time, share the aloha spirit with them and pass Peter’s good-natured demeanor on to the other
teams,” said former teammate and current UH sailor Mitch Icard.
LIVING ON As time passes and Wenner’s former teammates move on from UH sailing, his memories are still recounted to incoming teammates. “We tell stories about him all the time. On race days and stuff, we used to get in huge heated arguments,” Icard said. “He really pushed the whole team; he was a driving force in getting all of us freshmen better at sailing and closer as a team. That’s something that we all continue to try to do because it makes us better and at the same time it keeps the memory of him alive.” Each year on the anniversary of Wenner’s death in November, teammates have a memorial for him. This year, friends and family launched lei out on the water in remembrance. “A lot of the team members that have never met him still like to come out for the memorial that we do each
year, and everybody knows his story and really helps participate and keep his spirit alive,” Icard said. This weekend, Wenner’s parents will support the team and UH sailor Matthew Wenner, Peter’s younger brother, and cook for the sailors at a barbecue Saturday evening. “There will come a time when not anybody remembers him,” Johnson said. “But it’s still a number of years away.” The invitational this weekend supplies a tangible reason to remember Wenner, but his passion for the sport, which spreads to his teammates, will continue to thrive as his positive legacy. “People on the team, alumni and [those] in the sailing community have deﬁniely not forgotten him,” said junior sailor Maddy Kennedy. “I never had the pleasure of meeting PJ [Peter], but to have left behind such a legacy, and to have so many people that miss him dearly, he truly must have been an amazing person.”
