Expression meets dance in ‘Winter Footholds‘ A LVIN PARK Associate Features Editor Remembering the jarring actions of her extended family after her father’s passing, BFA dance student Cassandra Glaser spent over a year planning and perfecting a dark aerial dance that embodied hostile relationships between family members. Titled “Family Ties,” Glaser’s dance features four dancers in contemporary aerial work and addresses the sinister side of family life that many cope with. “My dancers symbolize these family members and the negative feelings,” she said. “ The audience should be able to relate to what happens onstage because every family has their problems.” Glaser’s piece is just one of four main dance performances that will be featured in the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa De partment of Theatre and Dance’s production of “ Winter Footholds: Dusk and Daybreak.” Another featured work will be


MFA candidate Cher Anabo’s piece ce on human trafficking, titled “Salpuukan: Moving Bodies, Moving Meannings.” The piece was inspired by the he yoga asana “eagle pose.” “‘Salpukan’ is a Filipino word rd for clash, collision or impact,” Anaabo said. “In my work, I am focusing ng on ‘impact,’ specifically in terms of the impact that human trafficking ng has in poor countries.” MFA candidate Mayu Ota’s a’s piece on Japanese painting and the he nature of art, titled “Beyond Time,” ,” will feature modern dance and Jappanese bon dance. A core theme in Ota’s piece is the relationship of life fe and death through art. Lastly, BFA candidate Keely ly Urbanich’s piece “Helicopters and nd Tea” will focus on the processes of learning and exploring movements. s. The piece is named after two very ry different objects with the ambition on of creating something lighthearted ed and interesting. Additional works by Department nt of Theatre and Dance students will ill round out the rest of the performance. e.

on Maui and Hawai‘i Island. Pai stated, “There is a small subsidy that customers without solar end up paying for those who do have solar, but we feel the benefits of having solar outweigh the costs.” According to Pai, the bill increases customers have experienced over the past year are due not to solar, but oil. “Last year, a typical customer saw a $61 a month increase in their bill,” said Pai. “Of that, $57 is for the increased cost of oil.” But Paul Brewbaker from TZ Economics has a differing opinion on this issue. He said that under the current policy of decoupling, “the price of electricity can go up even if the cost of oil-fired electricity does not.” Decoupling, or the loosening of the linkage between electricity price changes and the actual impacts of oil price changes, has been embraced by the Public Utilities Commission, which regulates HECO’s monopoly on electricity. Brewbaker said that, under decoupling, an increase in fuel oil prices of 40 percent, for example, will not necessarily lead to a 40 percent increase in prices customers pay. With decoupling, changes do not have to be proportional; therefore, electricity rates can increase much more than 40 percent. If decoupling were not in place and fuel oil is less than half of the utility’s production cost, changes in the amount customers pay should be less than half the change in oil prices. However, with decoupling, changes in electricity rates can be much higher. Why would the PUC do this?

MIK AELA BOLLING Contributing Writer

With solar power on Maui, O‘ahu and the Big Island almost doubling between 2010 and 2011 (from 40 to 78 megawatts), some fear the cost of electricity will increase because customers who have photovoltaic panels do not contribute enough to the fixed cost of operating and maintaining the electric grid system. Customers with solar get credit toward their bills on any excess electricity they produce, leading to very small electric bills. However, Darren Pai, Hawaiian Electric Company representative, asserted that there are no plans for a special rate increase. It turns out that people without solar panels already pay a small amount per bill that covers a portion of the costs to have solar in the grid. This is 30 cents on O‘ahu and $1

Brewbaker hypothesized that policymakers hope that “by raising the price of electricity, somebody could produce renewable energy profitably at the new, higher price.” By 2030, policymakers could be driven by the mandate to reach 40 percent clean energy by 2030, a goal of the Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative. Brewbaker pointed out that poorer households are usually the ones without solar and the ones that “pay [HECO] compensation via higher electricity prices,” as well as “bear more of the burden of solar tax credits.” Those who have incorporated solar panels into their homes and businesses have gotten tax credits as well as credit for the excess electricity they produce.

Decoupling is a policy that allows utility providers’ profits to not be completely dependent on energy sales.


Decoupling allows utility providers to promote sustainable sources of energy without losing revenue.


Consumers’ rates may not be based on the actual cost of the utilities they use.

F E B. 10 BU I LD I N G DA M AG E This past week, several buildings were victims of what has been described as criminal property damage or graffiti. These incidents have taken place (in chronological order) at the UH Press building, Hawai‘i English Language Program buildings, the geophysics building, and the Pacific Ocean Science and Technology building. The incidents took place throughout the day.

One was a domestic argument and the other was a motor vehicle collision where the perpetrator f led the scene. Both incidents occurred be t ween 12:20 and 2:0 0 p.m.

New requirements to limit fake IDs A SHLEY WOOD Contributing Writer In the film “Superbad,” a high school student acquires a fake Hawai‘i driver’s license with the onename moniker McLovin. Despite the movie’s comedic take on obtaining a fake identification card, in reality identity fraud has become one of the fastest-growing crimes in Hawai‘i, with more than 500 cases reported by the Financial Fraud Unit of the Honolulu Police Department last year.

INCREASED SECURIT Y Starting on March 5, 2012, Hawai‘i residents will be required to show more documentation to renew, reinstate and apply for a driver’s license or a learner’s permit. The Department of Motor Vehicles will require people to bring

documents providing their legal name, birth date, Social Security Number and legal presence in the United States. These documents will be scanned and forwarded to a “supersecure processing center, which is going to verify the documents, and keep them on record,” Department of Transportation spokesperson Dan Meisenzahl told the Hawai‘i Tribune Herald in a recent article. “And then you have to wait two weeks for your license to get mailed to you.” A temporary license will be issued for those who apply shortly before their regular licenses expire. Once these documents are in the system, people do not need to bring them for their fi rst renewal after eight years, but they will have to do so for their second renewal, eight years after that.

The new rules are in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, in which the terrorists held fake driver’s licenses from different states. To make it more difficult for criminals to commit ID fraud, Congress passed the REAL ID Act of 2005, which mandated that state-issued identity cards comply with federal security requirements before they can be used for boarding commercial aircraft or entering federal buildings. In 2007, Sen. Daniel Akaka tried to repeal the law due to financial and privacy concerns, but was unsuccessful.

Cooking Fresh For You



CAITLIN S TAGG Contributing Writer


Another food truck rolled onto the University of Hawai‘i at MÄ noa campus this week. Michi’s Cooking Fresh For You is located near Holmes Hall in Golden River Catering’s spot. “It’s been great,â€? said owner Michi Watarai. “The responses we’ve gotten so far have been awesome.â€? The lunch truck offers fresh fruit, daily special pastas, gourmet salads and plate lunches. Watarai’s recipes will offer students healthier options for their meals. “We make all of our dressings and sauces from scratch,â€? said Watarai. “We try to replace butter with healthier options by using fat-free greek yogurt ‌ [and] dressings don’t have a lot of oil. We [also] don’t fry.â€? The truck’s most popular foods include the steak plate and the catch of the day, which this week has been ‘ahi. Cooking Fresh For You is one of four lunch trucks that have been added to campus while Paradise Palms is closed. Andy Lachman, manager of UH MÄ noa’s Food Services, said, “Food Services is excited to be working with Chef Michi. Her Cooking Fresh For You philosophy of healthful eating and fresh ingredients will be a good ďŹ t for our campus.â€? Phyllis Look, marketing and communications manager for campus services, said that they are looking to see how the community responds to the new trucks. “We are looking to see how well they do and if they provide the variety that we want,â€? she said. “At this point we are not sure if we will add more trucks; it comes down to if we have the room for more.â€? Look said that at the end of each year, Campus Dining puts out a survey. “That survey is our customers’ response and a large part of how we choose what food we bring to campus.â€? Look said. “Customers provide information there about what types of food they like and would like to see here.â€? The survey helped to determine the four trucks that have been added so far and will be used to decide if more are added in the future.

‘Honey, I got this.’ JUSTIN F R ANCISCO Associate Opinions Editor

Valentine’s Day is over. Phew. For F some, it was a blissful event filled with w love and excitement. However, it all a came at a price – literally. Even if you cooked dinner in or made homemade gifts, it still came with a receipt. Forgive me for being presumptuous, but I assume a majority of these elaborate rendezvous were planned and paid for by guys. But Diane Mapes, dating expert and author of “How to Date in a Post-Dating World,” questions why, stating, “The rules of courtship are in the transitional period.” Our generation is unusually wedged between the chivalrous etiquette taught by parents brought up with conservative ideology and progressive equality learned from observable fact. More women are enrolled in college than men. The independent, self-made woman is sexy. The idea of a dependable, needy wife that waits at home with dinner is cliched and outdated. But some feminists continue to advocate equality while benefiting from the inequalities. Women, you can begin to dispel the canard of inequality by offering to plan and pay for dates. But society tells us otherwise. Social dogma, for one reason or another, states that manliness includes covering the tab. But we are in college. Some of us have to work two jobs for long hours and write about sex to barely make rent and buy Spam musubi. We are still gentlemen, but whether we like to admit it to our lovers (or ourselves), we are broke. So I asked female students: Who should pay for the dates? Does a guy paying for the date equate to a higher likelihood of getting laid?

Would you be turned off if a man asked you to cough up some cash? The general consensus was that whoever initiated the date should pay. “I think that whoever asked the other person out for the fi rst date should be the one to pay, and usually that’s the guy,” said Lydia Griffi n. Marissa Vinberg, another respondent, said that when she recently asked a guy out, she didn’t pay for the date – though she WILL CARON / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I was prepared to pay for her own portion. When “Most girls do leave it up to the guy to plan the date asked why she didn’t pay for both of them, she said, “He’s a full-grown for Valentine’s Day because that’s what they exman and should be able to take care of himself. I pect,” said Griffin. “But if girls are just relying on mean, I could have paid for the whole thing. But societal norms to make Valentine’s Dates for them, they can’t really get mad if their boyfriend or whowhat does that say about a guy?” The women interviewed seemed to agree, ever doesn’t set it up,” she added. So why are guys still responsible for holidays however, that when the relationship becomes serious, there should be a cooperative under- like Valentine’s Day? How can gender equality progress when women assume courtesy manstanding of payment. A nd drumroll, please – yes men, paying dates men paying the bill? Many men don’t for dinner will increase your chances of get- ask girls out on dates because we can’tt ting dessert. “If the guy wants to get laid, afford it, and both sexes lose. So women, if you redo you really think that ’s going to happen if the girl pays?” commented Vinberg. Hmm, ally want to do something special for your how fascinating. Valentine’s Day seems to be trickier; while man next V-day, say the women agreed that whoever initiated the date these simple yet exshould pay, they also acknowledged that social pensive words: “Honnorms dictate men make the plans for Valentine’s. ey, I got the tab this time.”

TREVOR Z AKOV Staff Writer Not too long ago, it appeared that Newt Gingrich was a lost cause. Last summer, dozens of his campaign’s high-ranking staff members left en masse, abandoning ship and jumping onto rival campaigns’ bandwagons. At that moment, Herman Cain, Rick Perry and Ron Paul all seemed more intriguing. Today, Gingrich appears to be the only viable mainstream candidate capable of challenging frontrunner Mitt Romney. And if history tells us anything about Gingrich’s stubborn character, he will stay in this race until the last possible moment. For voters, Newt Gingrich can be unlikeable for a myriad of reasons. First and foremost, Gingrich simply cannot manage his personal life. At the age of 19, he married his former high school geometry teacher – who was seven years his senior. After 18 years of marriage, Gingrich filed for divorce, not only because his wife was battling cancer, but also because he had been having an affair with a woman nine years his junior. Gingrich would eventually wed his mistress and stay with her for 19 years. However, only 12 years into his second marriage, Gingrich began yet another affair, this time with a congressional staffer 23 years his junior. This woman is Gingrich’s third wife. Gingrich has also practiced three different versions of his religion. Romney’s biggest disconnect with voters is his Mormon faith. Meanwhile, Gingrich has been jumping around various sects of Christianity – now, Catholicism. Taking into consideration all of Gingrich’s personal dilemmas, the logical question is how can Gingrich

tal of 28 days, the longest in U.S. history. It was later revealed that personal grudges might have motivated his actions, and Gingrich admitted a few years after the fact that his actions were his “single most avoidable mistake.” Gingrich’s track record is varied and inconsistent. In 1995, Time Magazine named Gingrich “Man of the Year” for his work in Congress. He orchestrated the 1994 “Republican Revolution,” which resulted in ending 40 years of Democratic majority in the House. Gingrich also led in passing the fi rst federal balanced budget in nearly three decades. And yet, during this same period of time, he was also acting irresponsibly. During his time as speaker of the house, a total of 84 ethics charges were filed against Gingrich. He was the first speaker to ever be disciplined for an ethics violation. People have come to expect this kind of reckless behavior from him. If Gingrich were to somehow secure the Republican nomination, there is no doubt that Gingrich’s laundry list of infractions will be used against him – effectively giving the 2012 election to Barack Obama.

Bruins roll into town

Senior Seni or o ts ou tsid idee hitt hi t er Ste teve venn Hunt Hu nt and the Warriorr vo Wa vol-leyb le yball te teaam look o to kn k ockk off No.11 UCLA thhis Frid iday ay and Saturdaay. CHASEN CHA SEN DAVVIS / KAA LEO O HAW AWAI‘I

M ARC A R AK AKI Sports Editor Closing out sets has been a problem for the Warrior volleyball team. W In eight sets this season, Hawai‘i has either led or tied its opponent when the score was in the 20s before eventually losing the set. b be e “You just got to want it – whoever puts their bodiess on the fl oor and just goes for every point and ie ball,” senior libero Nick Castello said. eevery ev v Middle blocker Jarrod Lofy tries to keep the intensity no matter what stage of the set it is. ssame a “You treat every point the same,” Lofy said. “It doesn’t matter whether it’s the first point or the last do o point, you go at it with the same amount of energy, and p po o that’s all the energy I have. I go as hard as I can every th point from the beginning of the game to the end of the po game. It doesn’t matter if we’re up by 10 or down by 10.” g ga a And closing out sets is something that the Warrriors ri io o need to be able to do this week as the No. 1 UCLA Bruins (12-1, 7-0 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) Br roll into town to face No. 13 Hawai‘i (6-7, 3-5 MPSF). rol The T Th h Bruins’ only loss this season came against UC Ir-

vine, a team that beat Hawai‘i twice last week. According to Anteater head coach John Speraw, there wasn’t a real secret to beating the Bruins. “We played at a pretty high level, and they weren’t as good as they are right now,” Speraw said. “Based on the scores, I think that UCLA is playing some really nice volleyball. At the start of the year when we played them, they were trying to figure out their opposite position, and I think they’ve figured that out.” Hawai‘i will have to take advantage of being able to make some adjustments, having played UCLA earlier this season – when the Bruins won in three sets. “Based on the fact that we played them before, we’ll be better prepared for them,” Lofy said. “Generally, we always do a whole lot better when we have more information and we’re able to see us playing against them.” On the other side of the ball, UCLA has something extra to play for. Head coach Al Scates is in his 50th season at UCLA and wants to win just as much as his players. “It is my last year and we’re going to try to win every match we play all year,” Scates said. “These are seniors in my lineup, and they understand what I’m telling them to do. They started when they were freshmen. We’re an experienced team, so we should win the close ones.”

Fowl ball: Rainbows open season against Ducks JOEY R AMIREZ Associate Sports Editor


Last season, the Rainbow baseball team opened the year with four games against the Oregon Ducks at home. The two squads split the series, two games apiece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a split last year,â&#x20AC;? said shortstop Piâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ikea Kitamura. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought we should have won it, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deďŹ nitely a little bit of a rivalry in playing them.â&#x20AC;? A year later, it is Hawaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i vs. Oregon round two.

D U C K A N D C OV E R Last year, the Ducks were ranked No. 9 in the nation. But after losing eight players to the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, UO now ďŹ nds itself ranked at No. 27 heading into this season. UH head coach and 2011 WAC coach of the year Mike Trapasso offered his thoughts on the Rainbowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst opponents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to come in and be tremendously disciplined,â&#x20AC;? said Tra-

passo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the best teams weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll face all year.â&#x20AC;?

R A I N B OW S R E L OA D I N G Hawaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i lost seven players to the draft as well, including All-Western Athletic Conference second baseman Kolten Wong and closer Lenny Linsky. However, the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Bows have been picked to place third in the WAC. In the all-time series, UH has dominated Oregon by winning 11 of 14 games. But the group from Eugene is on a mission to prove itself this year. Despite just barely missing the

preseason top 25, Oregon has been picked to ďŹ nish seventh in the Pac12 Conference. Winning this series would also hand Hawaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i some much-needed momentum going into what ESPN has tabbed one of the toughest schedules in the nation. While some may dread such a brutal road, Coach Trapasso relishes it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason I love playing great competition and great coaches early is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll expose some weaknesses we may have, and that gives us something to work on,â&#x20AC;? Trapasso said.
