Serving the students of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

K ELLY Z AKIMI Staff Writer As of June, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa has begun its participation in the Food Waste Challenge, a program designed to diminish food waste on campus. “UH Mānoa represents a large population of O‘ahu and diverting food waste from our campus would have a tremendous impact on the environment,” said Doorae Shin of the Hawai‘i Student Sustainability Coalition. According to an EPA press release, food waste accounts for 25 percent of all material sent to landfi lls and incinerators — the most of any type of waste. The

Sustainability Council, Sodexo and Food Services are working together to determine food waste baseline numbers and will commit to a minimum 5 percent decrease in the food waste designated for landfi lls. “The Food Waste Challenge is a program started by the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] to divert as much pre-consumer and post-consumer food waste as possible,” Shin said. After the current numbers of food waste are attained, WasteWise, a system of the EPA meant to help organizations reduce waste, will assist UH Mānoa in setting a specifi c goal of reduction to be achieved by 2014.

To meet reduction goals, resident dining facilities will continue with organizing “Weigh the Waste” campaigns to educate students on how to decrease food waste, as well as encourage waste reduction through various publicity venues. “For the kitchens, we continue to batch cook and monitor customer counts and use historical data for food production to minimize food waste,” Sodexo General Manager Donna Ojiri said. Decreasing food waste is an issue that Mānoa has already been examining. Currently, Sodexo donates to EcoFeed, which utilizes food waste to feed pigs on local farms, and Student Or-

ganic Farm Training, which creates compost used in the landscaping efforts around campus. Many campus vendors also regularly practice composting and donating unused food to homeless shelters. Mānoa staff believes the Food Waste Challenge will breathe new life into the sustainability movement for students and help them become aware of food waste in particular. Sodexo District Manager Marc Nakamoto said he hopes this will be an “educational and awareness” opportunity for students. “This is an issue that each and every one of us can make a difference in,” Nakamoto said, “Whether

it is recycling food waste, taking only what you can consume or donating to feed the hungry, every small action can make a big difference.” Shin said students can talk to the vendors about where they buy their food and ask about the challenge. “They can talk to their peers and make the issue of food waste known so we can begin to be mindful of the impacts we have as individuals,” Shin said. A press conference was held on June 19 at Aloha Tower to publicize the participation of UH Mānoa, Kapiolani Community College and Hawai‘i Pacifi c University in the Challenge and to celebrate the state’s sustainability efforts as a whole.

Journalists’ protection in question after Hawai‘i shield law expires SATOSHI SUGIYAMA Contributing Writer While President Barack Obama pledged to protect journalists’ integrity following a Justice Department scandal that included secretly obtaining journalists’ phone records and a personal email account, the Hawai‘i State Legislature let its own “shield law” expire on June 30 after it failed to agree on an amended version. The effort to extend the journalistic protection ended to no avail after the Senate and House of Representatives did not reach an agreement on the compromised version of the bill H.B. 622 C.D.1, which removed the shield law privilege from nontraditional journalists, established stricter qualifications to be regarded as a journalist and made the law permanent. In response to the passage of the compromised bill, the House passed its own bill that preserved the protection of nontraditional journalists for two more years. Both chambers could not reconcile disagreements further, and the legislative session adjourned without progress. Senator Clayton Hee, a chairman of the Hawaii Senate Judiciary Committee who supported H.B. 622, blamed the House for failing to extend the Hawai‘i shield law. “Because of the unilateral action taken by the House of Representatives on the morning of April 30, 2013, the media shield bill died,” Hee said in an email. Representative Karl Rhoads, who worked with Hee in the Conference Committee, said the bill was just “a compromise.” “I did not particularly like that version of the bill, but I thought it was better than nothing,” Rhoads said. “Many of my colleagues … felt that nothing was better than the conference version that Senator Hee and I agree to.”

T H E O R I G I N A L S H I E L D L AW In Session Laws of Hawaii 2008, ACT 210 established the legal privilege of withholding news sources to professional journalists and nontraditional journalists alike in Hawai‘i. The Senate Judiciary Committee fi rst added significant revisions in April that invalidated an authority to invoke privileges for “any individuals … (who are)materially similar or identical to that of a journalist or newscaster,” who engaged in newsgathering and distribution activity. The amendment continues to grant protections from “compellable testimony” for traditional journalists who are or were employed by the news agency. To invoke the privileges, however, “journalists” have to meet certain standards, including the requirement to engage in newsgathering activities for “financial gain or livelihood” at organizations either run by “paid circulation” or organizations that “supply news” to syndicated news organizations. That excludes college newspapers in Hawai‘i including Ka Leo and Hawai‘i Reporter because they do not charge a subscription fee.

P RO T E C T I O N R E MOV E D Gerald Kato, a journalism professor at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, criticized a removal of legal protection from nontraditional journalists. “In the past 20 years, the Internet revolution has greatly changed how we get information and from whom we get information,” Kato said. “If we’re going to have a 21st century law, we need to acknowledge this reality.” Jeffrey Portnoy, a media attorney practicing at Cades Schutte who represents the Hawai‘i Shield Law Coalition, is disappointed by the loss of legal protection. “We are the very first state to lose a shield law,” Portnoy said. “That’s not a very enviable record.”

Hawai‘i’s original shield law was lauded as “one of America’s best re-

Jeffrey Portnoy has practiced law at Cades Schutte since 1972.

We are the very first state to lose a shield law. That’s not a very enviable record. – Jeffery Portnoy, media attorney porter’s privilege laws,” according to the Student Press Law Center. “What (the) 21st century has shown is that all types of other ways to communicate new ... (that) don’t meet traditional tests of newspaper or newspaper employee,” Portnoy said. A growing number of UH students receive news from nontraditional news sources: 48 percent of students receive news from Internet sites including Twitter, BuzzFeed and Facebook, while 50 percent depend on traditional sources such as newspapers, television and radio according to a survey conducted by Ka Leo in March 2013. Hee highlighted that the majority of the members in both chambers are “overwhelmingly in support of an amended version of the existing media shield law.” Ben Cruz, a graduate student studying physical education at UH, is skeptical to an idea that

nontraditional journalists have the same kind of protection as traditional journalists do. “Bloggers do not have credentials,” Cruz said. In the House Judiciary Committee, Attorney General David M. Louie and Deputy Attorney General Deirdre Marie-Iha testified that the protection of bloggers “should be … removed” in the Hawai‘i shield law ACT 210 amendment. “(T)he protection for ‘bloggers’ or nontraditional journalists is far too broad, untested and well beyond any statutory journalists’ shield enacted in any State,” the testimonial document said. Portnoy said the shield law privilege was never meant to be extended to everyone. “We’d never intended the bill or the law to cover housewives who once in every 6 months write (a) nasty blog about (a) neighbor, but we certainly wanted to cover people who work for online publications,” Portnoy said.

P RO T E C T I O N F O R T H E FUTURE Senator Les Ihara, who voted against the Conference Committee bill along with eight other senators, vowed to reintroduce the original shield law protecting nontraditional journalists. “I will introduce another bill to re-establish the shield law (of Hawai‘i) that’s about to expire,” Ihara said in an email. “I believe it may take support from the senate majority caucus (to) get the bill passed.” Portnoy said that even as a shield law expires, Hawai‘i’s journalism will continue to strive. “(W)e did not have shield law before 2008, and the First Amendment did not die and (the) media did whatever they did,” Portnoy said. “I’d never say we are much better off now ... but I don’t think journalism is going to come crushing in a week or 10 days from now.”

WALNUT BANANA COOKIE S WITH OMEGA - 3 Recipe from walnuts.org

It’s the time of year when the weather gets hotter and more perspiration throughout the day increases the chance of clogged pores and breakouts. Lotions and creams can come to mind when talking about skin care, but what you consume is also a factor in skin health. What you eat and drink can show up on your skin, so it is important to be mindful of dietary choices.

You can substitute the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour to increase the fiber and whole grains.

Drinks like iced tea and coffee can help quench thirst, but water provides the most nutritional benefits. It keeps us hydrated, helps deliver nutrients to cells and keeps our digestive system and blood f lowing. Staying hydrated replaces the f luids lost in sweat and keeps your skin moisturized. Recommendations for water intake vary by the amount of water lost versus the amount needed for rehydration, so if you’ve been sweating a lot throughout the day, drink more water than you would normally. Dehydration can cause your skin to look and feel dry and wrinkled. The USDA Dietary Guidelines for water intake from food and beverages combined is about 15 cups per day for men and 11 cups per day for women.

Opinions Troubling trust issues My boyfriend is bi, and I’m worried that he’s going to cheat on me with a guy. We’ve been together for almost a year, and I want to know if I should stay with him or find a nice straight guy. I’ve always heard that when guys say they’re bisexual it’s just a step to full homosexual, and I know he still checks guys out. He goes to the gay bars sometimes, and I saw that Grindr app on his phone. Should I just trust that he’s faithful to me and is just casually checking out guys like how straight guys look at breasts, or should I confront him about his hook-up app and wandering eyes?

What’s the harm of same-sex marriage?

-Bi guy’s girl

CHARLOTTE OBSERVER / MCT

On June 26, the Supreme Court ruled against a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act, allowing married same-sex couples to have the same benefits as heterosexual married couples. TIM M ETR A Opinions Editor

Why is the issue of gay marriage still being vilified in the United States? We are fi rst world, postindustrial nation and supposedly on the frontline of social equality, and yet we still cannot come to grips with the fact that some people are homosexual in the same way that some people are redheads. The denial of equal legal rights to a significant portion of our population is ridiculous and has absolutely zero secular reasons. Fortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court majority thinks so as well, as evidenced by the striking down of a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act this week and the ruling that California’s Prop 8 was unconstitutional.

F U E L I N G T H E H AT E However, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia did not

agree with the majority opinion and felt the need to author a vitriolic and hypocritical dissent that has made the U.S. look silly to the rest of the world. Rep. Michelle Bachmann said marriage is “something that God created, [marriage] is something that God will define.” Since when is the U.S. a theocracy? The reason the U.S. exists is freedom of religion, not the freedom of one religion to dictate social values to everyone else.

W H AT I S L AW F U L John Oliver of the Daily Show made a good point when he reminded us of the fact that part of the Supreme Court ’s job is to regulate the U.S. legal code when we start making decisions that are bad for us. One hundred and fifty years ago, slaver y was a daily reality. One hundred years ago, women still couldn’t vote. Fifty years ago segregation was

still in effect. Sometimes the law isn’t in the best interests of the people, and DOM A was one of these f laws.

MOV I N G O N What I fail to understand is why it’s even an issue. What harm does letting the gays get married cause? The whole “harmful to children” argument has been debunked for ages. Homosexuality isn’t a disease (although it was in the DSM until 1974). Good, God-fearing Americans won’t just start turning into perverts just because gay people can get married, contrary to what conservative Republicans have to say. The gays are getting married and next thing you know they’ll be having kids, raising families, voting and going to school with our kids. They do these things only after being denied and wronged, and society at large needs to embrace change.

My first thought is that he’s seeing someone on the side. The whole Grindr thing is suspicious, and I’m a little cynical by nature. However, that may not be the case. Based on my observations in the homosexual community, just because a guy is cruising Grindr doesn’t mean he’s looking for some. A lot of guys actually just use the app to make friends. I don’t think that’s the norm for Grindr users, but it happens. The wandering eyes is just something that guys do. Thanks to an over-sexualized society where men are basically encouraged to objectify women (and men in this case), you’re going to have to learn to live with this unless you find an exceptionally well-behaved gentleman. You’ll hear all kinds of arguments about how your man should only have eyes for you or that it’s sexist to think this way. The truth of the matter is that it happens, and guys really don’t appreciate being harped on about it. I wouldn’t worry too much about the gay bars. The bartenders are usually nicer, the drinks are stronger and the music is better. Use your wing woman skills, and you’ll probably have a great time. You can even bring your boyfriend and still have fun because he won’t get awkward in a room full of drunk gay guys. This leaves you with two options. You can trust that your man loves you back and just likes to be with his other people sometimes. Boys will be boys, who are you to undo 20 something years of social programming? Or, you can confront him. I wouldn’t recommend getting crazy about it, but share your concerns. If you’ve been together this long, your relationship should be able to handle sharing some feelings. If it can’t, you have more issues than thinking your bi-guy isn’t faithful.
