Guide to Newspapers of Hawaii, 1834-2000

By: Helen G. Chapin

The newspapers of Hawaii form a unique role in the history of Hawaii and of American journalism. In a period of 165 years, from 1834, when American Protestant missionaries introduced the Hawaiian language Lama Hawaii (Hawaiian Luminary), to the present, newspapers have spanned the history of Hawaii from its status as an independent nation, a republic, and a U. S. territory, to its position as a state. By newspapers, I mean publications that have titles and mastheads,...

There are several ways to classify newspapers. In Shaping History: The Role of Newspapers in Hawaii (University of Hawaii Press, 1996), I placed newspapers within four major categories: establishment, opposition (or alternative), official, and independent. Establishment papers represent the mainstream or dominant power. Alternative or opposition publications voice anti-establishment or countervailing views. Official papers, the third type, are sponsored by government...

Thinking Explored

By: Shelton Ranasinghe

This essay takes a stab at the difficult question of “What is thinking?” I am using simple logic construed in a methodical manner to answer this question. As we read through, we will inquire deep into the subject of thinking, and develop a schematic model for “thinking”. Then we will make refinements to the model with enhancing the clarity of our logic. Towards the end, we will check whether the model that we create, could stand for wider application of thinking scenar...

Can babies think from day one? According to neuroscientists, the brain cell networks go through an enormous progression of connections, disconnections and re-connections in the cell circuitries during the first few years of our lives. The scientific literature explains what parts of the brains responsible for what functions and what parts of the brain get subject to rapid development in infants. But this essay doesn’t cover, such details, as its main intention is to exp...

How To Get Better At Things You Don't Know You're Bad At By 2020

By: Jose Franco

The goal of my story is to bring attention to the things we don’t think we’re bad at and help individuals work through the unconscious resistance. This will involve a great deal of introspection and even then, it’s an extremely difficult job. One doesn’t usually have proper insight into ones own emotional makeup. Most of us spend our time trying to rationalize our behavior as a result of our lack of self awareness.

Openness and awareness begins with the ability to self-critique and reflect upon things central to one’s own beliefs, thoughts, actions, behavior, and results. Openness can inform private, personal or group discussions. Ideally, all capable people should look for reasons to start/continue the work of self improvement. Nobody is equal to anybody. Even the same person is not equal to him/herself on different days. The first steps to continuous improvement is to know yours...

Голодные сердца

By: Mrs. Анзя Езерска

Книга без прикрас изображает тяготы вступления в американскую действительность вчерашних жителей местечек, муки усвоения ими новых и отрешения от старых ценностей. Тем не менее в произведении звучит оптимизм победительной воли к жизни. Персонажи блещут сочной речью и чувством юмора. Рассказы во многом автобиографичны, и не случайно критика называла Анзю Езерску “Золушкой потогонных фабрик”. В 1922 году в Голливуде режиссер Сэмюэл Голдвин поставил по книге немой фильм. В...

Heavenly Signs III : U.S. Eagle Falls, Volume III: U.S. Eagle Falls

By: Mel Gable

What happens when we as a nation ignore God’s Laws? Does judgment come to a nation that makes it lawful to sin in God’s eyes? These laws are said to preserve man’s rights and freedoms, but are seen by God as an abomination. Man has searched for answers to these age old questions and the Bible provides the answers. God has given us the signs in the heavens and modern technology has given us the tools to unlock the mysteries of judgment. Explore with the author, Mel Gable,...

God created just the right size of the moon and the correct distance from the sun to allow for a total eclipse to occur. During the creation of the heavens and earth, God has put signs into the heavens for us to see and interpret. We will first take a look at the significance of the moon. Total solar eclipses are considered a bad omen for the nations. Blood moons are an omen for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Both are recognized in ancient times and today’s ...
