Barack Obama's Shadow Presidency Emerges from the Darkness
"Democrats right now. A Democrats are looking as if they are going to get clobbered in the upcoming midterms. The Senate is probably going to be in Republican hands unless Republicans screwed up. And so who do they bring in to try to spark up the troops to try to pop them up, try to get them focused, Barack Obama? Former president Barack Obama speaks the House Democrats on Thursday. The private meeting is organized by Hakeem Jeffries, the caucus chair, and is expected to take place virtually. You know, Obama will not be bothered by leaving Oahu. While he is, communicating to House Democrats, Obama who has kept his public appearances to a minimum since leaving office will participate in a keynote discussion with speaker Nancy Pelosi. Now I'm reading this article that happened a couple days ago, but last night, some of the information from his speech got leaked. And Obama basically leaned in and told Democrats here's the problem. The problem is not that you're messing up the country. The problems you're not communicating, what you're doing. Quote, from CBS News dot com. Former president Barack Hussein Obama exhorted House Democrats. To celebrate their accomplishments on the campaign trail, rather than dwell on the setbacks they faced as they try to defend their slim majority in the midterms this year. Obama, the featured keynote speaker during the caucus virtual messaging summit Thursday, told lawmakers to quote take the wins you can get and quote, doesn't help to whine about the stuff you can't change. He says you need to be aggressive about highlighting the progress. He says Democrats deliver. He reminded them of the fight to pass nationwide healthcare the Affordable Care Act when he was president. Now, Obama

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.

Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation
"We're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open

"oahu" Discussed on Oahu Hood Cleaning
"Hey everyone. This is Summit with Wahoo hood cleaning and they'll Wahoo hood cleaning podcast. Hey, this is our first podcast, I don't know really where this is all going to go or thought you were going to do, but we've decided to start these up because we want to reach out and grow our base. Grow our audience and help out the restaurant owners job out there. We want to be your go-to hood cleaning company for hood, cleaning services on Oahu. And so we're we're putting ourselves out there. We're going to tell you the tricks of the trade things to show you that. We are the experts in hood cleaning here on Oahu So in the next sections are the next podcast will get into the the 123s of hood cleaning. What you can do. As a restaurant owner is sugar Keep your systems. Well maintained, you can get the most out of your cleanings so that you can avoid issues with the fire marshal with inspectors home and with the City and County of Honolulu. And so, really the main thing right now is with coronavirus, it puts a strain on on everything with the ongoing changes page of capacity of of indoor, dining outdoor dining, only things like that. It makes it hard for you to budget as normal. The budgeting comes into play because your, your revenue is basically being reduced down or it's fluctuating because of the, the mandates due to coronavirus home and you pay us out of your Revenue out of your profits. Normally was predictable where you could budget us in, you know, how much it costs, everything worked out and you did it. Now what we're seeing is a lot of business owners or struggling. A lot of business, owners are struggling. Even to make grant let alone, clean their hoods and service their hoods which is eventually going to be a problem we think. And so we're here to try and find solutions to be helpful to be a resource. The problem is that business owners are opting out to doing their Hood cleanings. This offers two major problems with one is, you don't clean your hoods, so that your systems are not exhausting the smoke. They're not exhausting the heat properly. You're breathing those in, in your system, is not working. They're not being maintained and you can get by with it for a while, but eventually it'll catch up with you, where your fans just get, so built up with grease that They seized up and they don't smoke anymore. That's kind of the worst case scenario. And of course you know that when the grease builds up on those fans on those blades on those ducks on those filters. They become more vulnerable to catch it on fire, that's the worst, worst case scenario. I guess the third case that we're seeing is that Health Inspectors. The fire inspectors are coming in there doing their inspections and issuing the citations and making them hard. Making them hard, meaning that they are enforcing them. There's no longer there, no, longer giving warnings. The reason we're seeing this is again, it's a money issue, the city and county sees it as a way to generate income for the state to pay for everything that's going on. And so it's really a Three-Headed Beast that we're dealing with. We're seeing it everywhere here on Oahu wage. Some, some businesses are getting away with it. They're making do, they're making it work. The other ones they're struggling. And I'll be honest with you. One of the first things to go in the office wise is the hood cleaning because the hoods can still work. But gradually day by day they get a little bit more built up a little bit more built up and it's going to reach a point where it either birth. Brakes or catches on fire. So you or you get an inspection, so you're really balancing this and we want to be here for you. We want to help you, we want to walk you through this. We want to offer you the best price, the best service, so that you get what you need and that you continue to come back to us for services. So stay tuned. We're going to go over this stuff with you. We're.
"oahu" Discussed on Oahu Mold Testing & Removal
"Hello, this is jam with Oahu mold testing and removal and this is our first podcast. We have decided to start this podcast one because I like podcasts and I learn a lot from them. And I want to give back and two is that there is a lot of information about mold that we get. We get a lot of questions. We get a lot of the same questions. And so we want to answer some of those. This podcast is going to be our introduction podcast where we're just kind of laying out a few things. And then in future podcasts, we'll come up with some fun ideas. We'll come up with an FAQ or frequently asked questions that we get time and time again. We'll talk about the main things that anyone would want to know that lives in a house and that encounters mold. Okay? We live in Hawaii. We live on Oahu here. And mold thrives here. The conditions are such that it's warm year round. That it's we live. There's plenty of water here and rain. And it's just a place that gets mold. I mean, mold can grow on cold climates, warm climates, hot climates. Here is unique because it is warm year round and we get water year round. And so we find ourselves with a lot of mold and another thing that contributes to it is that we use a lot of air conditioning. Air conditioners, if you've ever seen one that has not been cleaned or maintained on a regular basis, usually has mold on it. That's not uncommon, but that's just what happens when you don't maintain an air conditioning system. Why? Because there's moisture there. And it can get warm if it's not on or if it's not running. And so the main thing that we gotta realize that you gotta realize is that mold spores are pretty much everywhere. We're encountering mold when we breathe. We're encountering mold on our food. We just can't see it. Now when you do see it is it's obviously visible or you can feel it through breathe in through the air in your sinuses. Sometimes you can smell it. That means it's there. You can't see it, but you can smell it. And that could be where mold is in a place where it's just not visible. There could be an inch thick layer of mold in your attic that you can't see, but you can smell. And what you're smelling is a little spores whenever they're basically exploding and trying to repopulate or reproduce themselves. Okay? So the next podcast, we're going to lay out an FAQ section that we commonly get, and that'll be the segue into our future podcasts. So stay tuned for the future or for the.
Hawaii Wants to Lure Visitors---but Keep Out Covid-19
"Hawaii is riding out the covid. Nineteen storm but geographic isolation isn't the blessing it may seem by a. hundred algata when hawaii's corona virus infections were rising in late august. Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.
"oahu" Discussed on Oahu Concrete Paving
"Well, hello and welcome a wahoo and the world to the Oahu concrete paving podcast. Hey, this is Manu and we are starting a podcast for Oahu concrete paving. It seems like everybody's starting podcast these days. So we're going to jump on the bandwagon and see what we can do on these podcasts. See what they're all about. This is actually our first one. So I don't really know where this is going to go. I envision this being an introduction podcast. So we're just going to talk about our company in general and then later on, we'll get into we'll bring in the foreman and one of the owners and we'll start talking about different projects that we've done different ideas, different things that we've seen. There's a lot of cool things that you can do with concrete, as you can imagine, it's really kind of limited to your imagination. So you can build everything from little paver step stones up to things like the Hoover Dam. So concrete is amazing. It's been around for thousands and thousands of years. At least as long as man has been able to utilize it. And so let's talk about what we're doing here on Oahu in Hawaii. And what we do here. So we do a lot of concrete paving works. So a concrete paving, you know, we don't own a concrete batch facility. We're not a concrete, we don't make concrete. We basically work with it. So we order it from a concrete batch and plant. And they're the ones that actually make the concrete. So but the concrete mixing plant, they don't pour the concrete, they don't form it, they don't finish it. They don't do anything with it. They just make it. So basically, we get it from them. You can get it from them as well. But we're the ones that actually do something with this. So whenever we have a concrete pour or project, we call it in. We scheduled the trucks, depending on how many yards we need. So we'll tell them, hey, we need 12 yards. Typical concrete truck carries about 12 cubic yards of concrete. So a yard is 27 cubic feet. There's three feet in the yard. So a one yard is actually three times three times three is 27 cubic feet. So whenever we say, hey, we need 12 yards, that'll be one truck. If we needed 24 yards, we would have to order two concrete trucks in order to complete that pore. Okay, so let's go ahead and get into our company a little bit. We are a concrete contractor on Oahu we are a wahoo concrete paving, we specialize in concrete paving, flat work and concrete driveways, along with many other things, but those are our three main things and those pretty much. I mean, with the term concrete paving, concrete flat work, that pretty much encompasses everything that a concrete contractor would do. We put in driveways there because those are big, long, flat projects that are really fun to do and they have really good profit margins in them. And they're pretty popular. A lot of people like to have a driveway. They don't want to drive through the mud to get to their house. And so it's something that a lot of people have. And people can get creative with them. It's kind of the first impression that you have onto your house and you can imagine if you have a big driveway or a large concrete area outside of your driveway, it's the first thing you see and you know, you can get really fancy with different kind of stamped concrete designs that look a certain way that feel a certain way. And it really just adds a lot of value and wow factor to your house, especially since it's the first thing that you see and really it keeps your house clean. So you're not tracking in mud into your house and getting your car dirty. It really just provides a nice pathway walkway into your home each and every time. So we are we provide a to Z start to finish complete concrete construction services without over 15 years of construction experience. A wahoo concrete paving offers complete construction services on Oahu. We can handle the entire concrete process from start to finish from demolishing existing concrete, performing the site work and grading for preparation for preparing the ground to receive the concrete, complete formwork and forming placement of rebar and other metal reinforcements, pouring emplacement of the concrete, finishing the concrete to your desired finish and curing the concrete and finally sealing the concrete. We perform all the steps within Oahu concrete paving to ensure the best results for your project. Either concrete contractors on Oahu will subcontract parts of their workout resulting in unpredictable results. We are the only concrete. We are one of the only concrete companies on a wahoo that offers the complete construction process from start to finish, allowing us to provide the best quality at the best price possible. We can build sidewalks, driveways, patio slabs, foundations, retaining walls, footers, hard stands, stamped concrete concrete overlays, pull decks, garage floors, concrete resurfacing concrete repairs, and specialty concrete projects. We service the entire island of Oahu for our concrete paving and construction services and we provide free estimates. So that's a little bit about our company and what we do. I'd say that's a good introduction and pretty well encompasses our capabilities. So with that said, I'm going to cut this podcast here as an introduction and on the next ones, we'll talk about some of our past projects in our upcoming projects and ideas for everyone out there listening. All right, thanks for tuning in and stay tuned for the next ones..

Lockdown in Honolulu
"Don Wallace is on the line from Honolulu. He tells US authorities they're put in a new set of restrictions because of a recent surge in Cova cases on Oahu justice they were hoping they could start reopening. It's crucial tourism industry. Don's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine and he's updated us on Hawaii tourism in the past and done you're you're out there about twenty five, hundred miles away from anywhere else in the middle of the Pacific. Hawaii depends so much on tourism and I would imagine it's been quite a stressful time with the coronavirus continuing to spread. What's it like in Hawaii right now. Well the whiny started out as soon as thirty thousand tourists stopped coming way did very well on the virus were the lowest in the nation for states. Now we've had a spike starting at the fourth of July and August it began to get up to two hundred cases a day. I know that doesn't sound like much but. you don't have that many hospital facilities. That, we had to do a banning perks, beaches hiking trails and gatherings over ten So is the response and the impact of the corona virus different from different islands. who gets most of it in fact, it's almost miniscule on now big island, the ninety MILICI, those islands, the people can pretty much go cleese they. You wear masks you're allowed to fly into a walk who without according to you. But people who can't find their without of quarantine. What about people in the tourism industry? Are they impatient or they realizing that haste makes waste when it comes to getting over the so they can start making money again. It's a very interesting case people very concerned. There's no voice irresponsibly pushing for white opener light opening deal like Texas, did for instance. And I think that's because the workers sixty seventy percent of the are. No a minimum wage workers they don't have good health plans. They carry the burden of this, and the other part is the Theresa Stop Coming. Can Americans from the mainland fly into Hawaiian vacation if they want to yeah, you can come We get about three thousand a day. And I think the hitch there is you do a fourteen day quarantine and you check into your hotel and you can't leave your hotel room. The impact on tourism would be you're probably wondering around the beaches thinking this is like it was back in the old days. You're very much in nineteen threes, Hawaii. Waikiki is a ghost town. That's not entirely a bad thing We think tasteful Hawaii empty beaches, very clean water clean here you feel like being caress be hanging out with the beach boys. Old School Beach Boys. And if you do go out to dinner, for instance, you may have the restaurant to yourself just one or two people. Magic. So That's interesting. I mean, of course the you've lost the revenue, but you've regained your beaches as far as the locals go there was something in the news and I think you wrote about it about gun toting extremists who are wearing Hawaii shirts. It doesn't seem like the Aloha spirit to me what's Really thought it. Up in the news, there's one of these Gun Group extremists start showing up at the black lives, matter protests and other places. Instead of what they weren't Loescher it's Kinda create a sort of scary dissidence. Then people here reacted really strongly. Ensured is about Aloha Aloha is welcoming. It's inclusive. And it's actually something. I wrote an article about how Hawaiian shirts fight extremism. Hungary magazines. It's a love story about two sisters from Portland. Hawaii's eighteen twenty. Married South Asian immigrants helped create yellow her shirt industry. It's a beautiful beautiful story and it's that Louis Spirit that sort of loved that easygoing nece that caring for others. What a what a dissonance by these? What do they call? Boo Goo Boo Voice Blue Boys. Okay. Well I hope you have to handle and then we can read about that in your article and then very quickly what's open now if you are in Hawaii, museums, clubs, restaurants what's The dishes and Him after limited reopening had to close again. We hooked to get them back up in a couple of weeks neither good their little outdoor cafes and restaurants they've shifted to putting cafe tables out on the sidewalks and even the streets in some cases. So Madonna. Of Lua. And you know, thankfully, why is a very outdoor culture? So eating outdoors is. No big concession. So that lends itself to social distancing done. It's so great to have you on. We'll talk again soon I hope everything goes well with Hawaii and tourism, and your work there done Wallace's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine.

Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them.
