Tulsi talks tough
GABBARD RATCHETS UP NORTH KOREA RHETORIC
As far back as 2006, when North Korea held its first (though ambiguous) nuclear test, Slate.com’s very sober defense writer Fred Kaplan found the news bad, but certainly not apocalyptic. “The combination of Kim Jong-il and a nuclear arsenal is a nightmare,” Kaplan wrote in an Oct. 9, 2006 post. “It doesn’t mean he’s going to fire A-bombs at the United States or, for that matter, at South Korea or Japan. Kim may be a monster, but he’s not suicidal; his top priority is the survival of his regime, and he must know that a nuclear attack would be followed by obliterating retaliation.” Of course, Kim Jong-il is now dead and his scion-successor is obviously a lot younger than his old man, but his nation’s absolute self-interest in keeping itself from getting nuked by American bombs and missiles remains true. After all, North Korea’s fears over the survival of its regime are all too rational. Shortly after U.S. President George W. Bush included that nation in the nowinfamous “Axis of Evil” speech, U.S. tanks, warplanes and troops invaded and occupied Iraq, toppling Saddam Hussein’s regime. Though Bush cynically told the U.S. public (and the world) that we were invading Iraq to protect ourselves from a possible attack from weapons of mass destruction, it was the non-existence of such weapons that made the invasion and regime destruction so relatively simple (the resulting occupation was, of course, quite different). A North Korean nuclear arsenal gives pause to any American president seeking to use military power to, as Gabbard put it in her floor speech, “break the cycle of threats that has existed for far too long.” While this doesn’t mean the world should get used to the idea that Pyongyang is now part of the “nuclear
Overheard “He’s like the Mongolian Jesus. You just grab him and smack him.” -Guy at the Triangle in Kihei, April 13
club,” it should hopefully convince more officials that diplomacy, calling for the dismantling of all nation’s nuclear arsenals, is more important than ever.
ACLU HAWAII FILES SUIT TO GET PRISON RECORDS As though our state’s Department of Public Safety (PSD) doesn’t already have enough to worry about, what with prisoners escaping transfer on Oahu (apparently) because their guards weren’t following proper procedures, leading to all sorts of hearings and press conferences on things like new standards for our state’s prison guards, the ACLU’s Hawaii chapter has gone sued them over alleged violations of Hawaii’s open records law. On April 11, the law firm Rosen, Bien, Galvan & Grunfeld (RBGG) filed the suit in First District Court in regards to the ACLU’s so far unsuccessful attempts dating back to September 2012 at obtaining records pertaining to the deaths of two Hawaii prisoners that were held at Corrections Corporation of America prisons.

There’s nothing like a just-before-goingto-sleep screening of the 1965 Sidney Poitier/Richard Widmark film The Bedford Incident to really put your mind at ease regarding nuclear war. Oh, you haven’t seen the flick (or read the 1963 James Poe novel of the same name)? Well, it’s really just Moby Dick, except Ahab is an American guided missile destroyer captain and the whale is a Russian submarine armed with nuclear torpedoes. For those who wonder what the practical application of military buzzwords like “deterrence” and “provocation” actually look like, it’s a disturbing film. It’s a film I hope Tulsi Gabbard, Hawaii’s freshman 2nd District Congressional Representative, will watch in the near future (or screen again if she’s already seen it). Especially given her April 11 House floor remarks on North Korea. Those remarks, distributed to members of the Hawaii press corps by her own office, seem rather alarmist, even when considering the chestthumping rhetoric we’ve been hearing from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un lately. “Today, we are seeing an increasingly belligerent, hostile stance by the North Korean regime toward its perceived enemies,” Gabbard said in her remarks. “For some, this may sound like a faroff annoyance, saber-rattling coming from the East. However, nothing could be farther from the truth for families in my home state of Hawai‘i and in Guam, who sit as named threats by the increasingly aggressive and unpredictable regime led by Kim Jong-un.”
Gabbard must know as we do that people in Hawaii aren’t exactly making a mad dash to Costco to stock up on rice (well, not more so than we do already) in response to Kim’s threats. But that didn’t stop Gabbard from ratcheting up her own rhetoric: “Along with Guam and Alaska, Hawai‘i has been placed in the crosshairs of this intensifying threat,” she continued. “It is crucial for the United States, and Hawai‘i in particular, to take threats from North Korea seriously. We cannot be complacent. We cannot afford a mistake that puts the lives of our families at risk.” Going by this speech, you’d think a North Korean invasion flotilla was just a few hours from landing at Waikiki. Yes, North Korea has put out statements over the last week threatening to launch nuclear strikes and turn the region into a “sea of fire,” but they’ve made threats like that for years. When coupled with the fact that every serious analyst (including, oddly enough, those at our own CIA) say that North Korea does NOT currently have the capability of hitting Hawaii with a nuclear-armed missile, the threats take on a more curious, even humorous appearance. For those actually on the Korean peninsula, of course, threats from any nation that employs a very large standing army and has done things like torpedo a South Korean warship without warning and uses phrases that include the words “sea of fire” are anything but humorous. But missing from Gabbard’s speech (and most media discussions of North Korea’s threats that include the descriptors “bellicose” and “mad”) is any perspective on why that grotesquely impoverished nation would further bankrupt its already pathetic state to build nuclear weapons.
ACLU not liking this
“Seven months later, and after RBGG pre-paid over $5,300 (as requested by PSD), not a single document has been produced,” stated an April 11 news release sent out by ACLU Hawaii Press Secretary Kit Grant. “The lawsuit alleges that the mainland CCA lawyers representing the State of Hawaii in the wrongful death cases instructed PSD not to release the documents, in violation of state law.” For their part, state officials had no comment on the lawsuit. “We were served the lawsuit and it is being reviewed,” Dept. of Public Safety spokesperson Toni E. Schwartz said in a statement emailed to reporters on April 12. “We have been advised by our Deputy Attorney General to refrain from commenting on the case since it is pending litigation.” ■ firstname.lastname@example.org + @apignataro For more news articles, visit our news blog at: mauifeed.com

POLICE BLOTTO In some jurisdictions, a driver can be presumed impaired with a blood alcohol reading as low as .07 (and suggestively impaired at a reading below that), but according to a WMAQ-TV investigation in February, some suburban Chicago police forces allow officers to work with their own personal readings as high as .05. While officers may be barred from driving at that level, they may not, by police union contract, face any discipline if they show up for work with a reading that high.
DEPENDS ON HOW YOU DEFINE ‘FREE’ During the massive February Southern California manhunt for former Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner, nervoustriggered LAPD officers riddled an SUV with bullets after mistakenly believing Dorner was inside. Instead there were two women, on their early-morning job as newspaper carriers, and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck famously promised them a new truck and arranged with a local dealership for a 2013 Ford F-150 ($32,560). But the deal fell through in March when the women discovered that Beck’s “free” truck was hardly free. Rather, it would be taxable as a “donation,” reported on IRS Form 1099, perhaps costing them thousands of dollars.
GREAT ART! Sculptor Richard Jackson introduced “Bad Dog” as part of his “Ain’t Painting a Pain” installation at California’s Orange County Museum in February. Outside, to coax visitors in, Jackson’s “Bad Dog’s” hind leg was cocked, with gallons of yellow paint being pumped onto the building. “We’ll see how long it lasts,” he told the Los Angeles Times, “but you never know how people will react.” “Sometimes, people feel they should protect their children from such things, then the kids go home and watch ‘South Park.’”
VERY FASHIONABLE British “design engineer” Jess Eaton introduced her second “high-fashion” collection in December at London’s White Gallery, this time consisting of supposedly elegant bridal wear made in part with roadkill, cat and alpaca fur, seagull wings and human bones.
MORE GREAT ART! Australian dilettante David Walsh’s 2-year-old Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart is acquiring a reputation for irreverence. Among the exhibits is Greg Taylor’s “My Beautiful Chair,” which invites a visitor to lie next to a lethal injection chair and experience a countdown, mimicking the time it takes for execution drugs to kill (and then flashing “You Are Dead”). Also, at 2 p.m. each day, a “fresh
fecal masterpiece” is created by artist Wim Delvoye, in which a meal from the museum’s restaurant is placed into a transparent grinder that creates slush, turns it brown, and adds an overpowering defecation-like smell. The resulting “masterpiece” is channeled into (also transparent) vats.

Some Third-Worlders eat dirt because they are mentally ill or have no meaningful food. However, diners at Tokyo’s upscale Ne Quittez Pas eat it because it is a trendy dish prepared by prominent chef Toshio Tanabe. Among his courses are soil soup served with a flake of dirty truffle, soil sorbet and the “soil surprise” (a dirtcovered potato ball). (Spoiler alert: It has a truffle center.) Tanabe lightly precooks his dirt and runs it through a sieve to eliminate the crunchiness.

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION Among the lingering costs of U.S. wars are disability payments and compensation to veterans’ families, which can continue decades after hostilities end. An Associated Press analysis of federal payment records, released in March, even found two current recipients of Civil War benefits. Vietnam war payments are still about $22 billion a year, World War II, $5 billion, World War I, $20 million, and the 1898 Spanish-American war, about $1,700.
YOUR MONEY AT WORK Each year, Oklahoma is among the states to receive $150,000 federal grants to operate small, isolated airfields (for Oklahoma, one in the southern part of the state is so seldom used that it’s primarily a restroom stop for passing pilots). The payments are from a 13-yearold congressional fund for about 80 similar airfields (no traffic, no planes kept on site), described by a February Washington Post investigation as “ATM[s] shaped like [airports].” Congress no longer even requires that the annual grants be spent on the actual airports drawing the grants.
DEMOCRACY IN ACTION U.S. political consultants may recommend to their candidates gestures such as wearing an American flag lapel pin. In India, the advice includes creating the proper suggestive name for the candidate on the ballot. Hence, among those running for office this year (according to a February Hindustan Times report): Frankenstein Momin, Hamletson Dohling, Boldness Nongum and Bombersing Hynniewta, and several Sangmas (related or not): Billykid Sangma, Mafiara Sangma, Rightious Sangma and Winnerson Sangma. More confusing were Hilarius Dkhar and Hilarius Pohchen and especially Adolf Lu Hitler Marak. ■ email@example.com

On top of that, you wanted to charge me $100 if I decided to withdraw my before six months had expired.

here environmental matters are concerned, Maui these days is a place of great contradictions.
As a relatively tiny rock in the middle of the vast Pacific, the island has extremely limited landfill potential–a reality everyone here is well aware of–yet the County of Maui’s curbside recycling program remains an isolated experiment. So-called “zero emission” electric cars, though still just a small percentage of vehicles on the road, are nonetheless
10 APRIL 18, 2013
gaining in popularity, even though the electrical power that charges them largely comes from island generators that burn fossil fuels and sugar cane bagrasse. Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar likes to advertise that its 37,000 acres of sugar cane are “keeping Maui green,” yet its sugar processing methods involving burning the cane in the fields, which produces choking smoke and particulates. We could go on, but you probably get the point. Regardless of any consensus among the county’s residents and officials about the imperative threats posed by
global climate change (rising sea levels, increasingly powerful storms and species extinctions being the most prominent), competing commercial motives and entrenched power structures will always slow true environmental reform. So this year, instead of providing tips on recycling or other such “green” fare, we’re giving you a few special reports on some green efforts around the county, state and nation. We talk to U.S. Senator Brian Schatz about some of the (for Washington) radical climate change solutions he’s proposing. Then we search for more information
as to why the State of Hawaii is pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into a biofuel program they don’t really understand. And we look at how state tax credits are helping to pay for green development and retrofits at local resorts. Before contact with Western civilization, the island’s land, life and climate help special importance in Hawaiian society. While it’s nice to see modern society returning to some of that thinking, there’s much more we still need to accomplish if we’re to ensure that Hawaii’s climate and lifeforms are here for future generations. ■
Political Climate Change Talking story with U.S. Senator Brian Schatz about how Hawaii can lead the nation toward clean energy By Anthony Pignataro
PHOTO COURTESY WIKIMEDIA
erhaps because we live in a remote archipelago, surrounded by millions of square miles of ocean, we’re more sensitive to the changes that climate change will impose on all of us. We like to visit or even live at the beach, for instance, but what if rising sea levels over the next five decades replace our sandy coastline with rocks and thick walls? Such a future isn’t guaranteed, but the odds of its likelihood depend greatly on how our nation uses energy. Though he’s been in office just a few months, Democrat Brian Schatz, the senior U.S. Senator from Hawaii, is already attempting to quicken his colleagues’ pace on legislation that would deal with climate change. Specifically, Schatz would like see the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative–a joint venture between the state’s government and companies that wants to see 70 percent of Hawaii’s energy in 2030 to come from clean sources–adapted for nationwide use. He’s also proposing legislation that would impose carbon fees on polluting industries that are making climate change worse. Last week, Schatz and I spoke by phone about these efforts...
MAUITIME: Thanks very much for talking with us on this. Let’s start with what aspects of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative would translate nationwide. BRIAN SCHATZ: There’s a fair amount of enthusiasm among my colleagues for what we’ve been able to accomplish in Hawaii. First, we’d like to decouple the utilities’ revenues from electricity sales. As long as a utility makes more money selling more energy, it’s difficult to give them incentives for efficiency. We need a new business model. Energy metering is working very well across the state of Hawaii. There’s been discussion of that on the national level for a while, but it hasn’t been picked up yet. Also, we want a national energy portfolio standard similar to the 70 percent in the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative. MT: A 70 percent target seems rather ambitious for the nation, in my opinion. What kind of percentage are you discussing? SCHATZ: It’s too early to tell. But we need to invest in the next few years in research and development. We need potential game-changers. MT: Now part of that 70 percent target for Hawaii was an increase in efficiency. SCHATZ: The most straightforward way to clean energy in the economy is find
ways to consume less. The technology to make cooling systems and heating systems more efficient is already proven. We’re looking hard at pushing on the efficiency and conservation side. There’s also a pretty good opportunity for bipartisanship there. MT: Where else do find opportunities in the Clean Energy Initiative? SCHATZ: There’s a partnership between the Department of Defense and the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative. Obviously the DOD spends a lot of resources on energy and fuel. Pacific Command is a real leader in this. Admiral [Samuel] Locklear has been tremendous in articulating climate change as a strategic importance in the Pacific Theater. Other commands, and the rest of the DOD, though they’ve made some progress, has not made as much progress as PACOM. MT: Ok, let’s talk about that proposed carbon fee. SCHATZ: I introduced, with [Rhode Island Democratic] Senator Sheldon Whitehouse a bill to assess a carbon fee. It’s still being discussed by my colleagues, and we’re getting input on what the best structure would be. We think this is an important discussion to have over the next year or two. MT: What would the fee entail? SCHATZ: The fee would be imposed on polluters. Right now we’re talking about
[potential fees of] $15, $25 or $35 per ton. We’re discussing how best to return that revenue to the American people, like help with their energy bills or an offset with taxes already paid. We’re trying to leave it relatively open-ended so we can hear from people on both sides of the aisle. MT: Considering that so-called “cap and trade” policies went nowhere in the last few years, and the Republican Party controls the U.S. House of Representatives, how much a chance does such a fee have? SCHATZ: I think where we are now is where we were a year or two ago on immigration. It’s fair to say we don’t have the votes now, but if a national politician doesn’t have a real proposal to deal with climate change, it’s almost disqualifying. I’m hopeful that, through the next election cycle, this becomes mandatory. MT: And yet some still deny the science that backs up climate change in the first place. How much of that have you faced in the Senate? SCHATZ: Not as much as before. There are plenty of Republicans who will quietly acknowledge the reality of climate change. We’re trying to create a political climate so they can come out of their shell and start voting with us on solutions. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org + @apignataro

Potential Energy How Hawaii Energy is helping consumers statewide including one big Maui resort - slash their electricity costs By Jen Russo Hawaii burned 11.3 million barrels of petroleum last year to make electricity. Consider it Hawaii’s contribution to global warming and climate change. Of course, the state of Hawaii isn’t too happy about that. In fact, it has a goal of reducing energy consumption by 30 percent by 2030–a reduction of 4.3 billion kilowatt hours in 17 years. That much change can only come through lifestyle changes, ranging from small stuff like turning off lights in rooms you’re not using and swapping incandescent light bulbs for CFL or LED bulbs to ditching your car in favor of public transportation and building a lot more solar and wind energy generators. To help, the state’s Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has contracted Hawaii Energy to run a ratepayer-funded energy reduction program that’s administered by the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). The program is paid for through the MECO (or HECO or HELCO) Public Benefits Fund (PBF), which constitutes about 1.5 percent of the total revenues for the state’s electric companies. This program monitors and distributes rebates that are available to household and business consumers. To qualify, you have to be a paying customer and satisfy items on the sanctioned list of available rebates: new energy efficient refrigerators, solar water heaters, ceiling fans, air conditioners and so forth. There are rebates ranging from $50 to $1,000 for households that purchase these items. The rebates are offered for companies as well, and in some cases rebate investments can add up to hundreds of thousands of
dollars, depending on the project. “Now that ARRA [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act] funds have run out, I think Hawaii Energy is the go-to source in Hawaii,” says Brian Fitzgerald of the Oahu PR firm MVNP. “Several businesses and organizations have received custom rebate incentives from Hawaii Energy. Castle Medical Center ($647,637) and Honolulu Museum of Art ($346,026) are recipients of the largest rebates given by Hawaii Energy to date. But many others have benefitted as well. Anything that helps a building run more energy efficiently is open for a possible rebate.” Hawaii Energy reports that Hawaii ranks first in electric energy rates, with Maui consumers paying 36 cents per kWh compared to the national average of just 11 to 12 cents per kWh. On the flip side, the state spends more than $5 billion a year on imported oil. Governor Neil Abercrombie says that by lowering water and electricity use, public and private sector innovators are helping reach the state’s goal of getting 70 percent of the state’s energy demand from clean sources by 2030. On April 26, he will recognizing the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas with the Kela Award for their green initiatives. He will also give the Hyatt Waikiki, Wyndham Waikiki and Aqua Aloha his administration’s Green Business Awards. The work at the Westin KOR makes up the largest Hawaii Energy projects on Maui. Begun in 2012, it’s cost $383,353 and saved an estimated 1.9 million kilowatt hours annually, reducing the resort’s electricity purchases by a third. For that,
Westin received $215,657 in state rebates. “We do work closely with Hawaii Energy on all of our energy projects,” says Sulinn Aipa, the Westin KOR Operations Coordinator. “You can absolutely consult with them before and anytime during projects. However, rebates and best options for maximization were not a deciding factor for us. We already knew what retrofits we wanted to do and we appreciated any incentives that were applicable.” Aipa says Westin’s drive for more energy efficiency began in 2008 when she pushed for a committee to reduce water and energy consumption and increase recycling and waste management. “I started in 2007 when they had just opened the North Tower,” says Aipa. “I was part of the Associate Development Program. You had to choose a project you were passionate about. For me, that was an energy committee to protect natural resources.” The efforts Aipa had already established led the way to the resort’s energy saving goals, but there is more to the efforts to get the resort to go green than just numbers. Aipa also promotes company environmental projects like reef and beach cleanups, as well as volunteering at Malama Honokowai. Westin KOR wants to reduce their energy consumption by 30 percent and water reduction by 20 percent by 2020. Their recent retrofit project included the installation of two cogeneration units that supply 80 percent of their own power. They also added irrigation controls that cut water use by 14,821 gallons and installed thousands of LED lights throughout the
resort. They even offer an incentive for guests to defer daily housekeeping: a complimentary breakfast buffet. They say that saves the resort about $65,000 a year. Aipa also gives a presentation every semester to the Island Sustainability class that’s part of University of Hawaii Maui College (UHMC) BAS Sustainable Science Management Program and sits on the advisory committee for their bachelor program. “We help inform the students mainly on sustainable hospitality and what the resort does,” she says. “I always stress building sustainable in turn-key is really important.” Aipa says the resort should hit 15 percent of their reduction goals this year. As far as the future goes, she says education will be the key to changing behavior. The rebates currently offered are on a first-come, first-served basis. Hawaii Energy also consults with companies considering investing in energy saving, offering the best ways to improve efficiency. “We have a Transformational Department that does training for the community,” says Malie Alsup, Marketing Manager for Hawaii Energy. “We have held various energy efficiency workshops on Maui, and generally it’s energy officials [who are] attending. The best way to get info on these is to sign up for our energy newsletter on our website.” For more information, check out hawaiienergy.com/business for a general overview on what they offer, then call them directly at 808-839-8880 for more specifics. ■ email@example.com + @jenrusso

Running On Mangoes Why is the state of Hawaii investing in a biofuel project it knows so little about? By Axel Beers ummer on Maui means mangoes and, inevitably, scraping up those rotting, fallen fruits off the ground. But as you’re doing yard work this season, imagine a technology that would convert all that plant matter into something other than compost. In fact, the USDA Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center (PBARC), along with Florida-based BioTork Hawaii LLC, did just that. More than $1 million later, they’ve successfully developed “an economically sustainable zero waste conversion project producing biofuel and high protein animal feed from unmarketable papaya,” according to an April 6 news release from the Governor Neil Abercrombie’s office. What’s more, the release said that “this technology can be applied to any plant material as a carbon source.” The promise of non-petroleum, cleanburning fuel is real, and is already pro-
viding great environmental benefits. The United States wastes up to 20 million metric tons of produce, states the news release, which could produce as much as 1.7 billion gallons of renewable lipids. The proposed program also plans to use invasive trees such as Albizia, of which the islands’ supply is plentiful. “This patented evolutionary technology is unique to the marketplace and places Hawaii in a leading position in the area of biofuel and feed research,” Abercrombie said in the statement. “With this technology, farmers can turn agricultural waste into an additional revenue stream, and local production of biofuel can lower dependence on Hawaii’s import of fossil fuels.” At the April 6 open house event, Abercrombie also presented the Hilo based PBARC “zero waste biofuel and high protein feed program” with a $200,000 check Continued on page 16

Continued from page 15 from the state Department of Agriculture. “The state’s $200,000 investment will assist PBARC in moving the project to pilot scale as a prelude to commercial production,” said the news statement. “The State of Hawaii’s Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC) will become a venture partner to globally export the rapid conversion technology in association with PBARC and BioTork Hawaii LLC. The state also hopes to develop a long-term revenue generator as a partner exporting this technology. At full scale, more than 1,000 jobs are projected.” The biological conversion process works using “organically optimized” algae and fungi-developed and patented by BioTork– and a specialized environment that does not require sunlight. As a by-product of this process, “high protein feed” is produced that can be used to feed animals. “Aside from the benefit of producing biofuel, this technology has the ability to create another revenue stream for papaya and other tropical agriculture farmers,” said Abercrombie in the release. “Local high protein feed production–another by-product of this process–can greatly benefit cattle, hog, chicken and aquaculture farms through competitive market pricing.” Of course, all this wouldn’t sound so ominous or even torn from a dystopian sci-fi story if either the news release or BioTork website had included research, details and data. Alas, science does not appear to be Abercrombie’s forte.
Indeed, the news release from his office included an erroneous tautology. It included the statement “heterotrophic environment, meaning no sunlight is needed…” when, in fact, “heterotrophic” means to consume organic compounds as opposed to autotrophs like plants that can produce them using
processes like photosynthesis. After asking Abercrombie’s office for further information on the program and the $200,000 contribution, they sent us a second copy of the press release and a reference to the Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC), who sent us a copy of the three-page project request.

That document included less substantive information than would be found in a passable high school biology lab report. When asked for more information, the ADC referred us to the PBARC, which was able to confirm that, in fact, that three-page document was all they need to formally submit in exchange for the $200,000 grant. This didn’t surprise Henry Curtis, executive director of Life of the Land. “There are a lot of unanswered questions about it,” he said. “Agricultural operations in this state tend to have a lot less scrutiny, a lot less oversight than other types of projects. The ADC, of course, is made up of the big, most powerful agricultural interests in the state. So the ADC does not represent the little company, they represent the big guys. It’s sort of a
quasi-government-private-public partnership type of thing.” So what would another private entity have to say about the ADC’s new venture? “The more people we bring into the mix into the process of developing feedstocks and processing oil, the better our state’s going to be,” said Pacific Biodiesel founder Kelly King. “We’re happy to be kept informed on all these different projects, and to be able to help wherever we can.” She continued, “They’ve been very successful in growing these algae from papaya waste; the challenge is getting the oil out of it economically. The oil would be processed at Big Island Biodiesel. Their [PBARC and BioTork] challenge is getting the oil out of the algae, and we stand ready to process that algae—it’s when we get it.”
According to King, Pacific Biodiesel has been told that the program has developed a feasible way of separating the oil from the algae, but, she says, “we’re still waiting for a sample of the raw algae oil, which, by the way we have not gotten from any of the algae companies in Hawaii. We have a standing offer of $500 for the first gallon of raw algae oil we can get from anyone in the state of Hawaii,” she added, laughing. What’s more, the proposal also has no plan for how all this oil, produced from GM papayas, will be separated from the algae. During the event, Abercrombie also declared April 6 to be “Dr. Dennis Gonsalves Day,” to honor Dr. Dennis Gonsalves for “his research efforts at PBARC to improve and develop sustainable agriculture crops and programs in Hawaii and around the world.” Gonsalves is
notably known for his efforts at creating the genetically modified rainbow papaya. GM papayas have drawn considerable criticism since they’re grown outside Hawaii with little analysis of their possible impact. Critics have alleged that the GM crop has contaminated organic seeds and believe that alternative forms of pest management are better. “To me it seems like the U.S. has been kind of twisting the arm of the Japanese personnel to try to get the papaya approved,” said Hector Valenzuela, a University of Hawaii vegetable extension specialist in an April 25, 2010 Honolulu Star Advertiser story With friends and honorees like that, you can see why we’re suspicious. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org + @axelbeers

10 Things To Do At The Haiku Ho‘olaule‘a & Flower Festival BY JEN RUSSO PHOTO COURTESY HAIKU HO‘OLAULE‘A & FLOWER FESTIVAL
an array of baked goods and treats from school parents, Four Sisters, Maui Specialty Chocolates and Wow-Wee Candy Bar. 5. SMILE AT THE VOLUNTEERS. It takes a village to put on this event. If you haven’t volunteered, take a moment to notice all the wonderful people who have. “What makes the Haiku Ho’olaule’a different from other school-related festivals on Maui is the involvement of our community in the process,” said Jennifer Oberg, Haiku School’s Parent-Community Networking Coordinator. “Haiku is a small, close-knit town that really cares about its school. Community members who have never even had children at the school come out to support us every year! We are truly grateful for that support, because we are not like a private school with a full-blown development department. We love having our community help us.”
HAIKU HO‘OLAULE‘A & FLOWER FESTIVAL Saturday, April 20 9am-4:30pm Haiku Community Center 1. BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE. The event is going green this year. The Haiku Elementary School’s fifth graders will man food waste collection bins, so cheer them on as they schlep the food waste at the top of the hour every hour to the Mala O Haiku School garden, where they will bury it with Bokashi. “I would love to see the students processing more of the cafeteria food waste at the school and diverting it into the school garden,” says former student Jennifer Tallman, who is helping organize the effort. “This food waste is a nutrient rich soil amendment if processed correctly. The students learn the value of turning waste into something wonderful!” Look for the food vendors that will be serving on banana leaf as a disposable plate replacement (Tallman is making 1,000 leaf plates). These naturally decomposing plates go right in with the food waste. There is also complimentary water for those who bring their own recyclable water bottle (while supplies last.) 2. SUPPORT THE KIDS. This quintessential North Shore event brings more than 7,000 attendees to connect with the Haiku community. But not everyone knows this is a vital fundraiser for the Haiku School PTA. Organizer Mike Gagne was president of the Haiku Community Association in 1992 when they began planning and threw their first event with plenty of trial and tribulation. Haiku Community Association eventually convinced the PTA to embrace it.
“The first event took place in September with no insurance or proper permits and was very seat of the Haiku pants style but so many people came out to help us that it was heartwarmingly successful,” Gagne says on the event website. “Success meant having $700 after it was all over to give to the PTA which would not have happened without the $1,000 grant that Lucienne DeNaie helped us coax out of the county.” 3. WIN PRIZES. The very first Haiku Ho’olaule’a and Flower Festival featured a flower arrangement contest, borrowed vases and a flower sponsor with judging by the Maui Flower Growers Association. This year, the festival is proud to continue their amateur floral design competition– adult and keiki divisions start at 10am. The Maui Flower Growers Association tent will have a lei making contest that starts at 9am. Paradise Flower Farms is also supplying flora and fauna for the contests. The pie contest is taking entries at 9am– just drop by the Bake Sale tent. The oneday-only Instagram contest will be tracking tweeters who use the hashtag #PeaceLoveHaiku and tags @HaikuHoolaulea and @ PiiholoZipline. The best photo of the event will be chosen on Sunday. 4. COME HUNGRY. The chow fun is coming from Mama’s Fish House, the nachos use Tiffany’s salsa and the chicken Caesar is coming from the new Haiku restaurant Nuka. Lifefoods will make the PTA’s vegan burgers and Las Pinatas will make their bean burritos. And that’s just the PTA food stand. There is also a whole restaurant row with food from the Daily Grindz, Cafe des Amis, Cafe Mambo, Moana Bakery, Flatbread and John Cadman’s Pies. Speaking of sweets, Da Local Banana and Shaka Pops will be slinging frozen treats. Oh, and the bake sale and sweet shop will have Anthony’s Coffee along with
6. LOUNGE AND LISTEN. Feel free to lounge all day in front of the stage. I know you’re looking forward to seeing Ekolu, Makana, Marty Dread, Eric Gilliom and Amy Hanaiali’i, but Ahumanu, Benny Uetake and the Kalama Ukulele Band are chicken skin. Plus, Donny Dovino and the Maui Ohana Band will also rock the event. The keiki stage will go off with the Konomi dance works, the Chi Ribbon dance and a live dance mob for everyone that sounds like chaotic fun. 7. BRING YOUR OWN BAGS. I hope you have been saving up for the Ho’olaule’a. The silent auction is huge, with more than 400 donated items to bid on. The list of crafters and artists spans so many pages I can’t possibly list them here. Barnes and Noble is coming with their own book fair, with donations going to Haiku keiki. The Haiku Living Legacy Project will have a special printing of Louis Baldovi’s Holoholo to Wen I Wuz for sale for 20 bones (its the last printing of this book!) along with their special display about the history of Haiku. And farmers will show off their Haiku bounty in the Farmers Market tent. 8. BRING A TOWEL. Yup, there’s a dunking booth, bouncy castle water slides for the kids and carnival games. Alexander
9. DON’T SWEAT THE PARKING. Seriously, where do more than 7,000 people park when they roll up to the humble Haiku Community Center and school grounds? Relax! A&B was very generous this year when they offered their adjoining property for parking. Expect to shell out two bucks to the great folks at the Boys and Girls Club who will sweat their butts off in the parking lot, keeping it smooth and organized. An even greener option is to take the Maui Bus. 10. KEEP IT GOING! Where do you go from here? To Luau Sunday, of course. Richard Ho’opi’i will be performing at the Haiku Homecoming Luau at the same location, so you can come back for more fun the next day. That starts at 11:30am and and runs till 2:30pm. Tickets are $25 at haikuhoolaulea.org. A Haiku historical display, talk story sessions and traditional luau menu await you. Still feel like giving? This year marks the establishment of the the Haiku Elementary School Foundation and their inaugural fundraiser Star Light Star Bright will take place on May 4, 6-10pm at the Maui Country Club.

Earth’s Janitor ‘Oblivion’ is unoriginal but still entertaining BY BARRY WURST II
Rated PG-13 / 126 Min.
t’s the year 2077 and Earth is just barely surviving. In the aftermath of wars, viruses and the destruction of the moon, the planet still stands but most of its most famous monuments are rubble. Keeping an eye on the planet’s survivors and blasting away the “scavs” who defiantly attack is Jack Harper (played by Tom Cruise), who describes himself as “Earth’s janitor.” He lives in a literal high rise apartment, does day-today battle with the few left on the planet who oppose his mission and, layer by layer, discovers that, as the cliche goes, things aren’t what they seem to be. I normally don’t take notes during a movie but I made an exception for Oblivion–at the mid-point, I began listing all the other films this one steals from. A nicer way of putting it would be saying Oblivion pays homage to many other movies, many of them good, but the film’s biggest flaw is still its total
unoriginality. The story cribs ideas and whole scenes from Silent Running, Moon, The Matrix, I Am Legend, Mad Max, Terminator Salvation and, in an obvious nod to the film’s star, an aerial dogfight right out of Top Gun. Some won’t be distracted by how the story is made up from spare parts and, given the fact that is actually entertaining, many likely won’t care. This is the second film directed by Joseph Kosinski, a designer-turned-filmmaker whose debut was the underrated TRON Legacy. Kosinski demonstrates remarkable craftsmanship, creating gorgeous, precise and utterly cool visuals. The imagery and orchestral/electronica music score by M83 are so powerful, they overwhelm the movie’s all-too familiar story. At first, Cruise seems too self-aware (regarding his status as a massively popular actor and as an exceptionally goodlooking man for 50) for the lead, but he grows into the part. This is more of a movie star role than one of his truly great performances, but he typically and admirably gives it everything he’s got. Even better is Andrea Riseborough, a gorgeous,
immensely appealing actress, superb in her breakout role as Harper’s partner. Olga Kurylenko, in the pivotal turn as a mysterious survivor, has less to do but does it well enough (she’s far better opposite Ben Future toilet? Affleck in the current To The Wonder). Morgan Freeman’s role as Harper’s antagonist is tiny, though he gives it his usual panache and it’s amusing to see him play what’s an especially odd role for him. The credits only listed seven main actors and characters. Despite this, the film still manages to misuse Zoe Bell, the stuntwoman extraordinaire from Death Proof, in a dialog-free role where she stands around and watches the other actors talk. It’s kind of like hiring Jackie Chan to play a mute accountant. As with many sci-fi films, there’s more fiction than science at hand. The stun-
ning imagery of a post-apocalyptic New York make this a credible entry in the genre but it’s also more an above average action movie than a worthy successor to The Road Warrior. The scene-stealing, flying robotic drones and their itchy trigger fingers leave a bigger impression than the screenplay. Yet, this more than jump-starts the summer movie season a month early. Cruise and Kosinski may not have reinvented the wheel (more like borrowed the schematics) but their film is still riveting from start to finish.■

Cruise plays a lonely vet on an empty Earth who starts to question his job extracting planetary resources. Sounds like a big budget remake of WALL-E. See this week’s film critique. 126 min.

Sign Language BY CAERIEL CRESTIN TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) In Greek myth Jason vanquished a dragon whose teeth, sown in earth, sprouted into thousands of armed warriors. He was ready to fight them all and surely be defeated, despite his prodigious swordsmanship, until his wily girlfriend, Medea, suggested something more realistic: Turn the unassailable might of that army against itself. Jason threw a rock amid the slow-witted troops, prompting them to destroy each other. Adopt a similar strategy. You’re preparing to take on foes (both tangible and abstract) that’d crush a frailer soul than yours. You might be able to slog through your adversaries, but instead, sow foment amongst your antagonists and save your strength for something you excel at: the triumphant race to the finish line. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) There’ll be no better time this year to have your mouth wired shut. If you don’t somehow get it sealed, you’ll probably end up putting your foot in it before long, probably so forcefully that you’ll ultimately need to go under the knife anyway. Other possible solutions: Spend the week scuba diving, communicating via signed gestures. Take a vow of silence and correspond via hand-written notes. Go to a rock show and don’t stop screaming until your voice promises to vanish for an entire week. Whatever you do, shut your trap, baby. It’s for your own good. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Unfortunately, Cancers have developed a reputation for meddling. They’ve been known, on many an occasion, to stick their noses into affairs that don’t concern them. This isn’t entirely unwarranted: one of your most publicized talents is the ability to solve others’ problems, even when yours leave you floundering. The problem lies, I believe, in determining which quandaries merit intervention and which should be left well enough alone, a knack many Cancers have yet to develop. Luckily, I’m here to help: This week’s probs could benefit from a motivating or pruning pinch from a discriminating Crab. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You respect strength. A forcefully expressed opinion wins points from you, whether or not you agree with its message. Unfortunately, truly thoughtful insights can rarely be boiled down to slogans and catchphrases, because, instead of basing themselves on knee-jerk emotional reaction, faith, or purposeful ignorance, they take into account all the different facets of a given situation. Since the predicament you’re embroiled in is as complicated as it gets, I’d suggest listening carefully to the rounded perspectives presented by your smartest friends. As satisfying as it may be to fall behind an opinion that can be summed up in half a sentence, get all the facts before you embarrass yourself by doing so. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Although I’d still argue that you’re the most resourceful of signs, able to respond to a myriad of unforeseeable situations with remarkable grace, this week I’m here to give you points for preparedness. Given the assignment to pack a small backpack with everything you might need for an epic journey around the world, you’d return in forty minutes with sensible shoes and room in your sack for a good paperback. Still, there are some things that you can’t possibly prepare for thoroughly, like the birth of a baby. Only if you forget that basic truth will you be flustered by this week’s events. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) I apologize for forgetting the Libran constitution. Once again, I underestimated your powerful ability to let go of things; for some of you, it’s what you do best. Hence my recent suggestions that you disregard the handful of unattainables that vex you actually had the opposite of its intended effect. You’d already had the wisdom and grace to release any clingy thoughts that might have held you back. My proposed strategy only served to remind you of that one exasperating thing. So, I’m sorry. I promise not to tinker with your cerebral mechanics without good reason. And thank you for your wise rejoinder, which I’ve taken to heart: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
...to questions from page 4
1: E–Hawaii state Legislature. 2: B–Panda Express.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) The deep-sea anglerfish has evolved to address the challenge of finding a mate in the lightless depths where it makes its home. Only the (much larger) female is equipped to hunt (flashing her bioluminescent lure to attract prey). The tiny male, once he finds her, simply attaches himself with his specialized mouth (which is useless for feeding any other way) and is nourished directly through her bloodstream. He’s set for life, and she’s provided with a constant fresh supply of sperm whenever she needs it. Couldn’t something similar work for you? Although you may not currently need what’s being offered, you can certainly anticipate requiring it. At least consider the possibility that reeling in this fish now and keeping it around may be simpler than finding it again when you’re ready for it. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Although you’re riveted by the surprising performance of your dear friend, you shouldn’t forget the part you have to play in that show. Whether it’s curtain-pulling or back-up singing, you’d be disappointing too many people if you let your open-mouthed amazement make you miss your cue. Your role, albeit a supporting one, is just as vital to your friend’s success as the pieces she’s been practicing for ages. Shelve your amazement or jealousy until after you’ve done your duty. Besides the simple decency of supporting your companions’ dream fulfillments, there’s another compelling reason to come through: Your time to shine is coming up, and you’ll need friends to do the same for you. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) “Can’t you just give Caps a good horoscope for once?” pleaded one beleaguered Goat. I tried to point out that I always attempt to deliver a positive spin on things; it’s you that make it hard on yourselves. Believe me, I’d gladly join the legions who’d like to make your burden lighter, if only you’d let them. The truth is, if I wrote anything remotely along the lines of, “Your week will be filled with found treasure, butterflies, rainbows, and true love,” you’d never believe it—even if it was true. Let’s try, anyway: This week, the only things you have to dread are the ones you create. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You trust your senses, but are notoriously skeptical of what lies beyond them, especially the supernatural. Try not to be so close-minded. There are many senses that humans lack: bats and elephants, for instance, can hear and make sounds that are hardly more than theories to us; insects can see well into the ultraviolet spectrum, and some sea creatures use purely electrical senses to locate their hidden prey. Remember: Just because you don’t see something doesn’t mean it’s not there, and just because you do see something doesn’t mean it is.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) When you consider the enterprise ahead of you in its entirety, you’re exhausted to your core. No one can successfully tackle colossally ambitious undertakings like the one(s) you’re contemplating all at once. The Great American Novel isn’t written in an afternoon, nor is Rome built in a day. Instead, you take them one small part at a time. Break it down, baby, before you break down. What you want to do isn’t one big thing: it’s thousands of little ones. Finish the one you have on hand before picking up the next task, and never look more than two chapters ahead. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) I’m lucky enough to be able to occasionally spend whole days mostly without shoes—not even flip-flops—on my feet. Having as much of my body exposed to sunshine and wind, and feeling tangible contact with the ground— especially when it’s warm sand or chilly ocean tides—is an important part of feeling contentment, for me. It brings my mind to you Rams, who could benefit from some concrete sensations of connection with community, geography, and the natural forces you treasure (but occasionally forget). This week, go barefoot (or, hell, naked) whenever and wherever you can.
