Tropical Storm Oho Not Expected to Become Hurricane
Nice to see the local investment yet curious if HCC was at capacity with their old roaster. I hope HCC has a solid plan to expand their business instead of "Build it and customers will come". The coffee business is extremely competitive adding dozens of new employees with out new revenue is not a lasting strategy.
Bring back the sunshine, “limo” growing on my body:-))
Will stay with apples, oranges, pears etc., star fruit? no.
WHEN I READ THIS, THE 1ST THOUGHT WAS; WHY ARE WE STRUGGLING WITH THIS ? IT IS VERY CLEAR TO EVERYONE, THAT AN UNDERSTANDING OF OUR COLLECTIVE ISSUES/CONCERNS MUST BE REACHED IN ORDER TO MOVE FORWARD(imua). ALL PARTIES MUST CONDUCT HEALING (ho'oponopono) BEFORE ANY & ALL SUBSEQUENT MEETINGS IN THEIR RESPECTIVEGROUPS (hui), THEN AGAIN TOGETHER. THAT SHOULD BE THE 1ST STEP. OUR CONFLICTS ARE BORN FROM NON-COMMUNICATIVE, SEPARATING, PRACTICES WHICH NEVER BRINGS RESOLVE TO ALL PARTIES - UNLESS WE CHOOSE TO GO TO WAR WITH EACH OTHER, WHICH IS WHAT THIS IS ! akua sabe'
The title to this article is just trying it incite conflict. There is nothing in this article that goes into detail enough to warrant this title. In fact I see nothing that states the Hawaiian Language is restricted. This title should be changed.
THE WHOLE POLITICAL PROCESS HAS TURNED INTO A FRONT FOR WHICH CANDIDATE HAS THE MOST $$$ - FOLLOW THE $$$ ! SO HOW DOES THIS IDEA STOP THAT REALITY ? LET'S REALLY FIX IT SO $$$ CAN'T BUY A PERSON OR ELECTION !
Visited the big Island a couple years ago and was surprised to hear that the Island had been also in a drought condition. Maybe some of this snow may help replenish some water wells? Hope to be going back soon. Loved it, where my ancestors came from.
after 20 years,rest in peace "Peter boy"....amen...
Then you should be for gmos as they have less than non gmo. That is the real issue, you don't even know what you add whining about.
Your lies don't change the fact that all these are illegal under state law. You whine about not being smart enough to understand the law and how it works.
Lol, do you actually read the trash you are putting out? If organic papaya was that profitable they would be more than happy to rip out the gmo trees, but yet they still don't. Why? Maybe just maybe because your info is nothing but a lie just like everything you say. Gmos aren't developed in Maui, they are created in a lab. Then in a green house and yes then maybe in Maui, but not before. Why lie? Lies like yours have cost people millions and got nothing in return. Just think if you channeled your misguided meaningless whining into a real cause.
Gmo papaya, developed by UH, Cornell, USDA and Monsanto (who owns the patent)...the failed PR ploy of Monsanto's transgenic papaya.
The majority of the globe's GMO corn traits are developed here... No one wants to grow the transgenic papaya, it is only still grown because trees were already planted and it is kept going by government subsidized insurance payouts. The selling price of transgenic PRS virus containing papaya has fallen to 30-40 percent below production costs! The price of GE papaya is 600 percent lower than the price for organic papaya. Hawaii has lost half of our papaya farmers since transgenic papaya was introduced and the market was collapsed.
No one in their right mind would start to grow the inferior GMO papaya which is more susceptible to black spot fungus, has a dangerous coat protein and damages soil biota.
It sells for less than the production costs! Our biggest years in production and price were both before transgenic papaya. Non-GM varieties resistant to PRSV are a far better option I prefer the Kapoho variety. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/...
Unfortunately your statement is false. Kauai was only a GMO and pesticides disclosure bill and buffer zones around schools and hospitals. Hawaii county only had a ban on new GMO not already growing. Maui voted for Independent Health and Environmental Impact Health Studies here where Monsanto develops the globe's rDNA/RNAi traits.
Monsanto-Bayer and Dow-DuPont sued Maui to continue to develop herbicide resistance with 80 restricted use and experimental chemical combinations.
They sued to overturn the vote for tests:
(a) Transgenic Contamination from GE Organisms to non-GE organisms may occur;
(b) GE Organisms released into the environment may effectively be recalled from the environment;
(c) Pesticides associated with GE Operations and Practices used both as single Pesticide and as Pesticide
combinations may contaminate the groundwater, surface water, oceans and reefs;
(d) Pesticide laden air and dust from GE Operations and Practices may be harmful to the people and Environment;
(e) Pesticide combinations associated with GE Operations and Practices resulting from two or more Pesticides are applied at the same time or within their period of active life (“Pesticide Cocktails”) have or have not been tested for safety and the extent to which they may be harmful to the people and Environment;
(f) Horizontal Gene Transfer from GE Organisms between organisms of different species may occur; and
(g) there is any correlation between birth defects and the proximity to extensive GE Operations and Practices occurring in Maui County and Kauai County.
All I've ever stated is I do not want poison in my food...not sure whom would raise their hand to claim wanting poison in their food...
unlike you with your Clinsantoesque changing of facts to suit your flavor of the day....
Removed statement was supposed to be in another thread...
Please pardon the interruption. ..
You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming....
Unfortunate false statement: “The residents of Hawai‘i simply asked for measures to be taken to protect the health of their loved ones, which are clearly being compromised by the exposure to toxic chemicals that GMOs are engineered to withstand.” No, they decided to ban all GMOs, regardless of whether they had anything to do with application of any chemicals (except for GMO papaya, which was politically impossible to ban).
At least I don't make things up like you do. You still haven't been able to refute anything I have said as well.
Your drivel is so pathetic. ...and uh gosh my time us so valuable...
Just nit with waiting time...do you honestly think people with common sense can't see right through your charade???
No go back to your MPM handlers and demand they give you a new cheat sheet. Your talking points have become mundane. You sound like an old 78 with a nick in the needle
You are funny there aaron. Strange how you haven't been able to disprove anything I have said.
Stop GMO guy...
Your the liar....the propagandist....the disillusioned...
You need to stop playing with all the poisons you sell they gsvrvdamaged you brain....
Her name is Steph Paulo. She posted on her own HPD Nixie release on Big Island Thieves Facebook page. The girl is discourteous, rude and illiterate. She admits to theft of services on several posts. So yeah, she is a dumbfuckingidiot.
Whoever birthed this POS should hang their head in shame. Your kid is a waste of air.
good job police i drink and drive day time on 100 mile trip coffee that keeps me wide alert and i can drive safety
You are a proven liar that is against your neighbors. Even the industry saving gmo papaya.
THIS IS A NO-BRAINER ! IT IS PROOF OF WHAT SPECIAL-INTERESTS WILL DO TO KEEP DA' $$$ MACHINE ROLLING ! LET'S REMEMBER IN FUTURE ELECTIONS !!
THIS IS A BIG PLUS FOR OUR MAYOR ! MAYBE MOST OF US WILL BE ABLE TO LOOK PAST THE TRANSGRESSIONS & SEE THE GOOD HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED ALONG WITH THE SUPPORTERS OF THE PROGRAMS. AND ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAVE WORKED HARD FOR THIS & OUR PEOPLES * alo ha
