"So it's not just brand new teacher street out of teacher Ed programs, but it's any teacher that's new to the school because we do have a lot of initiatives that we push. We have our own system of what we do when we open the school day, what happens when how do we open epic class? How do we close every class? All of these things are very specific to the school. And there's really not an opportunity except a department head where you sit down with a new teacher and go over these things that we could just do this in one fell swoop. Let's have one meeting let's go over all of these things and you can ask the questions that you want. We're a career academy school. So vetting our teachers in the understanding of career academies is very important as well and understand letting them know and getting them to assume their role as preparers of our future career people. So all these things came together in one year, my principal had given us a little bit of money, which was beautiful because we were able to buy food. And I think food and Hawaii more than anywhere else brings people together. We had teachers that were coming in from the continent. So what I would do was I would go through some vocal eateries and buy things that the kids that our students typically eat. So that if there was a conversation that came up, that new teacher wouldn't be like, oh, what is that? What are you eating? Where do you get that from? They'd be like, oh, I've had that before. And it kind of makes a connection. For our teachers and the students. So then we saw that I just tried it one time, and I was like, oh, it really worked. And it brought more people to the table. I was able to convince my veteran teacher Friends. I have full advantage come through too. And so it became this tradition that every second Friday of the month, we're going to come together. We're going to do this. We're going to eat food, someone's going to share. We're going to have some veteran teachers here. We're going to have the new teacher share. And it just became a beautiful collegiate environment that we're able to continue on now for four years..

"That is a mind shift that because we are so connected to our environment. That we can be talking about whether and we can talk about wind patterns and we can walk outside and we can look at wind patterns and we can feel them. And we can watch how the trees react immediately. And so my students, whether they know it or not, they are influenced by their place. That our place informs not only where we are, but who we are and who we are together. Our places can tell us so much about our personalities and how we deal with adversity in light of things like natural disasters and our empathy because in Hawaii, we have such a large population of endangered species, areas in need of protection and conservation in light of climate change and invasive species. So our students are naturally inclined to think about larger beings other than just themselves. And in biology, that's the same way every single lesson that we do brings it back to how does this affect your family, your ohana. How does this affect your community and how will this impact your environment? And we are a career academy school, what career are you thinking about that you can make impact and you can make change to come back to support again, your ohana, your community and your environment. Am I trying to just visualize, first of all, I can hear the birds behind you, which is also just something that I'm like, wow, I'm curious when you're with the curriculum and the way you approach it, what have you been surprised that your students begin to notice of how the evasive animals or plants like make an impact to their community. And the projection of how if it's not controlled within their lifetime could be an issue for their community. And their family and the way they live and the way they make a living..
Is Vote Harvesting Legal or Illegal?
"Hi, dinesh. This is Laura. One of the themes in 2000 mules is the issue of vote harvesting. Is vote harvesting legal or illegal according to the laws of each state. Thank you. This is a very important question. In fact, it is the heart of the objection to the movie made by Philip bump of The Washington Post. Essentially what Philip bump says is that this is a movie that shows and demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt, massive harvesting. And he goes, yeah, but harvesting is not always illegal. It's allowed in a whole bunch of places. And so what's the big deal really? Maybe in some cases it wasn't allowed in certain ways, but you're not going to cancel out a vote because the mode of its delivery, the harvesting was somehow out of sync with the rules. Are you? Now, this is, this is something we need to drill into because these laws are made at the state level, and they vary. So let me say, this is what boat harvesting is. Vote harvesting is giving you a ballot to someone else. This is we're talking obviously about absentee or mail in ballots. You don't go deliver the ballot yourself. You give it to someone else and say you would do it. Now, there are about 27 states that allow some form of vote harvesting, but in most of these states the form allowed is very limited, very specified. So let's start with the most liberal vote harvesting laws. These are places like California and Hawaii. And the idea here is you can give your ballot to anyone. California allows you to ask any Tom dick or Harry, so to speak to return your ballot. And that is permitted. Now, most states don't do that, even states that allow vote harvesting normally limit who you can give your ballot to. So let's take, for example, the state of Georgia. In the state of Georgia, you are permitted to give you a ballot only to a family member, or if you are in a confined or facility, if you're in a nursing home, you can give it to a caregiver. And that's

Networks Under Criticism for Failing to Mention Race of NYC Suspect
"One ABC NBC Networks and other networks are coming under criticism from conservatives and rightly so for failing to mention the race Of the suspect mister producer isn't that shocking It's key to finding them So I have a chart here Media narrative chart by John Gabriel Over at ricochet sent to me by my wife And he has the media narrative chart for reporting violent crime With the attackers a non white shooter in the victim's wife shooting gun control If the attacker's Hawaii from during the victim's non white races chief of department can If the attacker's non white and the victim's non white Run story about the Kardashians instead If the police officer is the so called attacker and the victim is non white police brutality The attackers a non white shooter and the victims of police officer its reaction to brutality If the attacker is a non white shooter excuse me I just did that If the attacker is a male and the victims of female at sexism the attackers female and the victims of male its reaction to sexism If the attackers of female shooter and the victims female gun control If the attacker is female and the victim is a fraternity band fraternities If the attackers non Muslim and the victims Muslim islamophobia If the attackers Muslim and the victims non Muslim reaction to islamophobia If it's a Muslim a Muslim attack it's the Kardashians we need to cover
How Did Dinesh Conceive the Idea for '2016: Obama's America'?
"I did mention Debbie. My name is Austin and I'm an aspiring filmmaker from Georgia. My writing partner and I bring some projects, but we're most excited about a conservative show concept. We'll finalizing this word. From a story standpoint, it compares the analogies of the famous books warnings to the current reality of the United States. Anyway, we would love to know how did you conceive the idea to make 2016 Obama's America with no filmmaking experience and how did you get those who are willing to help you make it such as funding, filmmaking, et cetera, because we're looking for that up to. Well, in my case, the idea of making the film arose out of a book that I had already published called the roots of Obama's rage. So I felt that I had a powerful new insight into Obama. And that would be intriguing as a film. Now, the conventional view of Obama was he was kind of a civil rights guy. He came out of the kind of tradition of Selma and Montgomery, the Martin Luther King tradition. And my point was no. Obama, it's not that he was born abroad, but he comes from a foreign perspective. He is absorbed, if you will, the dreams of his father. So I thought this was an interesting topic to be able to convert into a movie, although I didn't quite know how that would be done. As it turns out, a movie is a journey, and I would have to go to Hawaii and Indonesia, Kenya, and kind of track down almost physically the Obama story. But once I got the idea, I realized that, you know, I'm not on the left. I'm not like Michael Moore. I can't go marching into a studio and collect $10 million and say, okay, I'm going to make a movie now. So on our side, you've got to sort of build it out from the ground
The Math of Resistance With Tiffany Justice of Moms for Liberty
"Talk to us about the math of resisting. That when you think you're just one person, when people don't want to stand up and ask that question, the school board. But if one person says yes, I'll ask that question and you just decide to stand beside them and then you realize somebody else will and somebody else will talk about the catalytic knock on effect of showing others that they're not alone Tiffany. Yeah, I think it's hard when you see a company like Disney and others coming out and trying to shame parents and saying, well, you're not accepting of people. That's baloney. This isn't about, you know, this bill in Florida wasn't about homosexuality or heterosexuality. This was about children and innocence, and that's something everyone can get behind and fight for. I really think there's an effort to divide us as American citizens and they're trying to divide us on principle. The funny thing is, I think that Americans are smarter than that. And they're going to see past it, and they're going to work together. So I agree with you. We hear all the time. People come with their moms for liberty t-shirts somewhere. That one person joins them when we're joins them and then collectively they can't be stopped. Again, school districts might be able to pick off one or two parents, right? They can't pick off 40. So stand with each other, lock arms, shoulder to shoulder, and let's show Disney and these woke corporations and ridiculous politicians what we're made of. And what does it take to get involved and start a chapter? Yeah, so you can go to our website, moms for liberty dot org. You can click on the map on your state. You can see where chapters are currently in your state. As I said, a 180 chapters and 34 states. We just added Hawaii. That's very exciting for us. Give us a couple that haven't got any chapters. A negative shout out to some states. Yeah, no, absolutely. We need some more chapters in Georgia in Arizona. We need, again, would love to grow Alaska, alaskans, if you're listening, we'd love to have a chapter in Alaska. But yeah, I mean, what we're seeing is that it is contagious. We're going to do an automated video of how moms for liberty has grown in states. And I'll take it as state like Pennsylvania, for example. To see the way that the chapters have grown one by one by one by one and then to turn around and have 14, right? And all working together, that affect at the state level is just
Dinesh D'Souza Joins Charlie to Discuss His New Film '2000 Mules'
"With us right now is a great American patriot who has done so much in just the last decade for the cause for liberty, dinesh d'souza, dinesh great to see you. Charlie, it's a real pleasure. Thanks for having me. Of course, we're here at a turning point action dinner about to talk about your upcoming movie. We also both have podcasts with Salem first yours is the dinesh d'souza podcast, right? Comes out every day, is that right? Exactly. I do it, I do it audio and video, and I've been doing it now a little over a year, and so I'm relatively new podcaster, but really enjoying it. Awesome. Tell us about the movie. We've talked about it. A fair amount on this program, but no better person to talk about it than you? Well, I think it's my most important project of all the movies I've done. So this is number 6 of the documentaries. And I'm sensing around at the same kind of electricity I felt around the first movie, which was my Obama film called. Really broke the zeitgeist. Yes, the second most successful political documentary of all time after behind Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9 11. But I think this movie like that film pulls the curtain back. And the first film that was a puzzlement around Obama, Obama was doing all this stuff that seemed to undermine America and it just seemed, is this man so clueless that he keeps giving away American interests. And so there wasn't a good framework to understand Obama. So I got on the plane, I went to Hawaii, I went to Indonesia, I went to Kenya, sort of discovered the real Obama. And here, this is a movie that's not called 2000 meals. It's not about a person, but it's about a burning issue that is surrounded with a veil of censorship. It's about an issue that's on. It's almost like it's haunting the American mind. And I don't think we can really go forward as a country without learning, perhaps not all the truth, but at least some of the truth. And by truth here I mean, documentable, provable facts about the 2020

Obama and the Beach House Loopholes
"One more thing about mister Obama building his second mansion in Hawaii. He apparently is trying to retain a seawall that neighbors believe is eroding the beach, I guess he's not too concerned about the beach, and he couldn't be too concerned about global warming or climate change because supposedly climate change is going to cause the waters to rise. He's got two homes right on the water. One for $12.5 million in Martha's Vineyard, and now a multi-million dollar mansion in Hawaii. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money. Why the long face Barack? You're in Hawaii. On your multi-million dollar property overlooking construction on your new ocean front of state. Well, it seems like his neighbors are angry at him for destroying their beaches. Big green guy, Barack Obama is using a loophole to keep a hundred year old sea wall up, but people say it's eroding their beaches and screwing around with the coastal environment

Democrat governors are starting to abandon the Biden administration on school mask mandates. Do tell what's happening here. Apparently, the New Jersey and Delaware governors, both Democrats are lifting mask mandates I mean Murphy was a Democrat so ardently for the mandates, he called anyone who opposed them knuckleheads. But now, looks like Murphy's cave in like a he's folding like a cheap camera.

William Federer Shares the Story of Adoniram Judson
"Talking to Bill, Federer Bill, you just shared an amazing story about the hero, the missionary, adoniram judson. I did not know the story that you just told that he had become an atheist. And then the man who led him into atheism took his own life within a few feet of judson. I mean, you can't make that one up. No, it's powerful story. Do you want to become a missionary? He was the first foreign missionary to India, but really to Burma. And started a missionary movement in the early 1800s called a haystack revival and 5000 young people went out to missionaries around the world. Hawaii, the Caribbean. It was sort of like all the woke energy today. Imagine that being harnessed to go around the world and spread the gospel and start schools and start mission orphanages and medical clinics. And it changed the world. Unfortunately, that young person and energy is harnessed for the destruction right now. Anyway, so Timothy Dwight, during this time, he takes over as president of Yale. And from some reports, there's like no professing Christians in the student body, which is only a couple hundred students. And rather than him sitting his ivory office, he would come down at the lunch table. And he would listen to the students, say all their skeptical stuff. And after he would listen patiently, he would say, okay, I listen to you. Now you listen to me. And one by one, he would refute every one of their arguments. So much so that within a few years, virtually the entire student body became Christian again and a good percentage of the students went on to become ministers and missionaries themselves.

Pearl Harbor: The Day of Infamy
"Well, the summer 7th of course was Pearl Harbor, 1941. A day which will live in infamy. The man overseeing the base operations in Hawaii if I remember correctly his name is admiral husband. Husband Kimmel, my memory serves me right. Now it's this great metaphor, which is and it's actually tragic. He was a great guy. He just decided to go golfing on the wrong day. He went golfing on a beautiful Hawaiian morning and next thing you know the pre emptive strike against the United States occurred, which basically sunk our entire Pacific fleet. Thousands of Americans died. And left us so geo politically and strategically vulnerable. In the hours and days that followed, there was fear that the Japanese would attack California next that amphibious ground amphibious invasion of the western part of the United States was imminent. America's reaction to Pearl Harbor showed us the type of country we were. We didn't tolerate it. Even FDR a left wing Democrat rallied the forces domestically and said, we are now going to go to war and we are going to win. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and cut 28. So today that will live in infamy. Play cut 28. Yesterday, the summer 7, 19, 41. A date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. By naval air forces of the empire of France, as the moderate chief of the army and baby, I have directed an all measures be taken for the battle. Remember the character of the unsolved against us. I asked congressman clown a state of war between the United States and the Japanese empire. The speech is really good. And it said a lot about who we were as a nation, what we were willing to do to defend the homeland.

Even puerto rico all these different places all these different groups of people that you can learn about how they lived and how that shapes the hawaiian culture because many of those immigrants stayed there and lived on the island. And so it's called the hawaii plantation village. Excellent a lot of the actual plantations for pineapple of there really isn't a lot of pineapple grown on the island as much anymore as there used to be a lot of that went to the philippines because of labor being a lot cheaper but it was a very critical portion of the history of hawaii and very much tied in with the way you were talking about before with the polynesian history and y hawaii became a state and all of the the power of the plantation owners. And things like that you. We saw the bishop museum so so from here. We're going to go to the most lease talked about part of the island. But we think it's a part that you should miss and that's going to be the west side of awas who so the reason you should go to. The west side is mainly just for its beaches beauty. There's a different mountain range here. Called the wine. I mountain range. There's all of these things that you can find there that you can have adventured with little to no people. Yes and they would say that the hike you cannot miss on the west side is called katerina. Point is at the corner of the island. You can say it's literally rather Ends and that's where you will find that..

Our unemployment rate was amongst the lowest in the country. We were out about two point. Four percent unemployed which as you know is virtual virtually full employment. We were looking forward to great things after coming through the great recession and really we felt that things were hitting our stride. We were able to get southwest airlines to begin service to the state which was a you know a ten year project to expand seek capacity to the islands and things were looking up then the pandemic kit and clearly. The most difficult decision i had to make was the decision to order a mandatory quarantine for all incoming traveller to the state and essentially we went from the lowest unemployment rate in the country. Two point four percent to the highest unemployment rate in the country exceeding twenty two percent in a matter of four to six weeks we were closing a hotels and closing businesses through that first six weeks in the pandemic you know we were asking visitors not to come to the islands to postpone trips and vacations because we wanted to ensure that we could keep our community healthy. And safe certainly. That was a very difficult time. Guess eighteen months ago right now. So that shows how dependent on tourism. -ly beautiful beautiful state of beautiful place to visit but it's not a diverse workforce. It's not a in the terms of type of industry and jobs now that you're coming back. I know you're eight point one percent unemployment so that you cut it in half.

I'd be like, I don't, I can't believe Jeff Bezos. Do anything to help? He gives away like trivial tiny amounts of money. Like, but baseless really wanted to He could end world hunger, he could let you so much and he doesn't. And it's like why don't what is Jeff Bezos need more money for. So he gets a big swing indicative like waves around. Like, look what I got. I don't get, I don't understand. I get I get greed to some degree like I want a house, I want a backyard, I want dogs. I want I want to provide a good life for my kids like I I get that once your basic needs, you want, you have a house and paid off and you have like enough money for a boat and you have kids, it's like some point. Don't you reach enough where like I don't need more I certainly am hopefully going to reach a point where I'm like, I don't need more and then I'm going to give away lots of money and help people in the community and do stuff like that. I'm years away from that, but hopefully, I want to have a house some day, like, in twenty years, maybe I'll sneak my house. And then the money I was spending on my mortgage all spend to donate to this. I mean, I really have a heart for that Alex Honnold the mountain climber, who lives in a van gives away a third of his income every year to donate. And I would love to, like, I think we're so cool to buy a house and then rent it out and use the prophet not to use, not to use the profit from the rental to give to myself, but to use it to put in a, a fund and then go to like Africa and build a well, or build solar panels. I mean, I'd love to use that and I just, I want to help people if I can. And I'm not there yet, I'm still kind of Getting By, but man, I, it's such a thing that I care about. And so, if I, if I had Jeff bezos's, bunny for a day, I am dude, I am doing so much. I'm spending that money so quickly to change the world and I just can't. It's it's unfathomable to me. I'd love to interview Jeff Bezos. Like what the hell are you doing for money? Like, what's your plans? Yes. Hoarding money for like no reason. When you could do so much to help the world if you wanted to, I just don't get it. I don't understand two questions, left, Alex, right since Alex says, hey Zack, I know you are a big fan of the MLB, but you are a fan of baseball, your dang, right? The MLB has had a big problem with many pictures throughout the league using foreign substances. My question to you is, if you were able to become commissioner, which you would be better, which you would be a better one than Manfred.

"At a live event it feels weird. People around your like what what is this guy doing job? Now, would you as media? I did the XFL games from the Press Box. They invited me to the Press Box. I got to take notes there when your media it's fine. But when you're a person going to a game, I would want to take notes and and then I felt weird. Like, I went to Cincinnati to watch Tom. Brady, play the Patriots and Tom Brady, his final year in New England, watched him play in Cincinnati. December 2019. And it was I was taking notes and it was a little bit weird. There were people like now I can handle it, I don't really care, but I just, I know that I'm an introvert. I don't like crowds very much doubt. I think the best way to watch football is at home, you can mute the commercials. There's, there's a lot of wasted time when you go to a game if you think about like, hey, I've ten hours today to watch games and I cover the antenna from a really, you know, I A 10,000 feet away like a whole, I cover the whole league at once and so if I go to one game that's six hours of my life, probably between Transit and food and this change that. So I miss out on other games and I waste a lot of my day where I got and then try to watch other games and then cover them the next day, it's possible. So now, I will say in 2002, I would like to go to the Midwest probably cuz it's all so close together and get an Airbnb. Make that my, you know, my mobile command center will call it cuz the fun marketing term and record content on-the-go and say, hey, I'm just, I'm going to sacrifice this week. I'm going to this game. I want to do that someday, and I'll do a record podcast from an Airbnb. Some day, I got a pretty good mobile set up now. Back to use it in Hawaii, and then I was so busy moving and I'm not recording anything there. But for the most part, I don't have. I'm not that interested in going to games. I think it's better to watch games from home if you're trying to cover them. But I will see, I'm open to the idea. Will I go to any Hawaii games? Yeah, I will go to one or two. I got offered to work on the sidelines and I said, No Doubt cuz I look, it's just not, it's not what I want to do. I want to sit home and watch, Alabama, play Oklahoma..

So a luau is absolutely must. Do you think the polynesian cultural center for first time is something that is absolutely recommended and then i do also two other things. Hawaii volcanoes national park on the island of hawaii is amazing There's over a hundred and fifty miles of hiking trails and just to see the impact of the two thousand and eighteen flow. That really got a lot of bliss. Ity which added over nine hundred acres of land to the island of hawaii. It is just something amazing and magical to see. I got to see this when i was there in march and i tell you. It is spectacular. The park rangers are there. They can give you the lay of the land in Experiencing natural phenomenon. And the last thing i would say is the nepali coast on the northwest side of the island of kawai. It is one of the most you know spectacular coastline. You will ever see. It's only available by hiking by boat or by helicopter so to see nepali by boat or by helicopter is absolutely a bucket list experience. That all sounds amazing. So in your experience would have some fun activities. That first time visitors often miss that. They may want to consider you know. I think i think sometimes people are so concerned with you. Know maybe some of those bucket list experiences like you know the volcanoes national park in nepali. I think people sometimes miss out on you. Know some of the some of the other kinds of activities like you know even even going to a zoo earn aquarium so in. Honolulu has a great sue. The auto lulu zoo. They have an aquarium. There's an amazing aquarium maui. As well the maui ocean center. It is absolutely spectacular. I also think you know getting out driving in exploring at their leisure. You know most of our visitors rent cars in hawaii. It is a wonderful way to relate experience the destination at your leisure at your pace Like stop and pack a picnic lunch. It just really enjoy the islands. And that could be driving on a walk up to the north shore and taking your time and sobbing little beaches along the way or doing the scenic road to hana on maui and and taking in the beautiful waterfalls in stopping gets banana bread. You know along the way but really just you know just exploring the destination in the same thing to getting out of the hotels to dine you know going. To some of the mom and pop restaurants the snack shacks you know the local spots on the noodle shops you know is really such a great way to really enjoy the food the culture and the local people and even hiking us so much of what you can experience hawaii is free and you still can take in the natural beauty and there's so many different types.

These trucks are parked right outside of the shrimp farms. You cannot get the shrimp any fresher. You go up to the truck and they usually have these plates of garlic shrimp some rice little slice of pineapple.

Lunch is you know Typically consists of a protein so it can be anything from muhima heat to calvi ribs or a hamburger steak. Two scoops of rice in a scoop. Macaroni salad basically enough to feed a small village on and that actually comes from the history and the culture of the plantation era is when they started to grow crops throughout the islands. They needed people to come and to to work. These plantations so people came from all over the world from korea from china from portugal from puerto rico. And they live on these plantations. What they did is. They shared their food and know with with their You know the people that live with them on the plantation in so this is actually from that plantation era. That people all had these wonderful plate lunches so you'll find throughout the island and there's a variety of like you said you can customize with your own protein but it's a wonderful way to really get a taste of the culture throughout the islands..

But i think you know it's really kind of seeking about what experience you really want to kind of really trying to match with the right island or island combination. That has those types of experiences. Doesn't want wrong answer to that question. That is absolutely. It's such an individual choice. Honestly it's so funny people ask me. What my favorite island is you know. Every time i returned to hawaii refala love with an island in it. And it's not. What my favorite is. It's really it's such an individual choice and if you ask a hundred people in a room everybody would have a different answer because it's a very personal choice absolutely well you know. Adding cultural components to vacations continues to be popular especially for families but what are some landmarks that families can visit to learn more. About hawaii's unique history and know pearl harbor is one place. I've always wanted to yes. It's absolutely amazing. And that's what i love about hawaii.

That's just you know a shortcut a stone's throw away so you can kind of choose to be as busy or is relaxed. You know as you want on the island on maui and then candidate of the four major islands which we're going to focus on is of course the island of hawaii and that one's nicknamed the big island and that's because it is by far the largest twice the size of all the other islands combined. It's about the size of the state of connecticut. And you know it's really interesting island. I would describe it as diverse. You know you've got you know this incredibly large island on the west side where it's dry. Arid almost desert like you start to drive to the east side of the island in you. See hundred and seventy five thousand acre cattle ranch. And you see macadamia nut farms. And then you see you know. Incredible rainforests waterfalls a snow. Capped mountain amid an active volcano. Just a couple hours drive but the diversity is absolutely amazing and of course it's most known for the the volcano which is an absolutely incredible things to experience. But there's so much more you know beyond the volcano and and people that tend to love this island are people that really are kind of the active adventurous ones. That really had this wonderful curiosity about history and culture about really wanting to take advantage of unusual adventures that they can't find anywhere else and people love this island because you can actually spend slip. Their stay in spend time on the east in the west really having almost many trips within their vacation. So so that's that's really what what draws people to to the wii so with all of that personality for families that are planning their first visit. How do you recommend selecting which island or islands to visit on their trip. The data's an interesting part you know. It's you know what i would do. It's really kind of just understanding a little bit of the dynamics and you need make personalities and kind of determining you know what is it that you really want you know some people say oh. I love being on a wall or waikiki. 'cause there's so much to do right so if i wanna have tons of different dining and shopping i wanna have you know the detroit. They're able to go surfing and help on an outrigger canoe and have access to all that you know might want something like you know like a wall who steam waikiki. But if it's like oh you know what i love. You know outdoor natural beauty. And i want to hike and i wanna do a tv rides zip-lining and kind of more of a relaxed type thing than kawhi might be something that people are more interested in so it's really doing a little bit of research talking to the travel advisor kind of really talking about how can i.

Velopment Santer national land and resources command may schools just name a few why coffee as well. And of course, we'll have to see ta members precision Hawkin DJ attendants. Are are you folks? The only ones from the mainland that have come over. And everybody else is sort of the local the local community of Joan. Enthusiasts or departments that are actually very interested in using Jones. So it's it's mostly a combination of all of those three right? So the only to mainland companies would be precision hawk in that. And that's great. Because the like I said the goal of this is to showcase the benefits of technology in the state of Hawaii, and what better way than to showcase how it's already being used in the plans at these departments and these organizations have for drones for the future and the need for innovation friendly legislation. So that these these goals can thrive the these technological achievements. Can be made. No, I know you mentioned that the Hawaii is publicly one of the states that introduced the most amount of drone legislation. And oftentimes it is public more in the area of preventing the use of Jones as opposed to promoting the use of Jones. What would you consider to be sort of good legislation that the might be introduced? One good legislative measure is a preemptive measure. So I think I touched on it earlier a tangled web of regulations in how dangerous that can be difficult for a drone operators. So we've seen this and other states where different localities cities can have their own regulations and laws about the operational restrictions for drones again well intention, but what happens is if you have a state with different cities and counties have different, you know, altitudes and places that drones can fly can make it impossible for commercial or recreational users to know how to safely operate so one good legislative measure. Our lawmakers can do is to adopt a local preemption to say that localities can't enact their own drone ordinances regarding operation. Do you? See a win. There will be the ability to actually track where all the Jones might be potentially flying in the air in real. Time. Absolutely. We don't necessarily want to go down that path and be able to actually track because we need to be mindful of, you know, big government, and sort of, you know, big brother. So we need to be mindful of the privacy of the drone operators themselves. But one initiative that we worked on with the FAA was the remote identification rulemaking committee. And so we're waiting for a rule to come out, which is going to require most operators airspace to actually have an electronic license plate, and that's going to solve a lot of the local concerns and allow local governments to enforce local laws in place because one of the big problems right now is you see a drone operating somewhere where it shouldn't be. But you don't know who that drone operators, and you can't go after them and enforce local laws. The ones we have this in place. We'll solve a lot of those problems and not need these new legislation. So real quickly in the last couple of thirty six that we have work and people find out more about the precision hawk precision dot com and donors dot IO. And the. 'then C dot attack. And of course, you want to share about the the the Joan day at the capitol Schorr the trend at the capitol will be tomorrow from ten thirty AM to one PM.
