Hawaii Sen. Daniel K. Inouye dies at 88
17 Dec 2012 Hawaii Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, the Senate’s longest serving member, died Monday from respiratory complications. He was 88.
Inouye was a World War II veteran and a Medal of Honor recipient. He was hospitalized at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at the time of his death.
Inouye joined the Senate in January 1963. As the senator of the majority party with the longest record of continuous service, Inouye held the post of Senate president pro tempore, putting him third in the line of presidential succession.
"He is certainly one of the giants of the Senate," Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said Monday night on the chamber floor. "His commitment to our nation will never be surpassed."
Inouye's wife, Irene Hirano Inouye, and his son, Daniel Ken Inouye Jr., were at his side. Last rites were performed by Senate Chaplain Dr. Barry Black.
His story is the story of modern Hawaii. During his eight decades of public service, he helped build and shape the island state.
Inouye began his career in public service at 17 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army shortly after Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
He served with 'E' company of the 442 Regimental Combat Team, a group consisting entirely Americans with Japanese ancestry.
Inouye lost his arm charging a series of machine gun nests on a hill in San Terenzo, Italy, on April 21, 1945. His actions during that battle earned him the Medal of Honor.
Following the war he returned to Hawaii and married Margaret "Maggie" Awamura, and graduated from the University of Hawaii and the George Washington University School of Law.
After receiving his law degree, Inouye returned to Hawaii and worked as a deputy prosecuting attorney for the city and county of Honolulu.
He recognized the social and racial inequities of post-war Hawaii, and in 1954 was part of a Democratic revolution that took control of the Territorial Legislature.
Following Hawaii’s statehood in 1959, Inouye became its first congressman. He ran for the Senate in 1962 where he served for nearly nine consecutive terms.

Obamas moving to Hawaii in January 2013
September 2, 2012 The Obamas Already Preparing for Move to Hawaii in January 2013: Hyde Park neighbors talking about Chicago house being sold soon
Obamas are using Chicago proxy-buyers to purchase a $35 million oceanfront estate for them in the most posh area of Oahu, where they coincidentally vacation frequently already. Move-in date is scheduled for January 2013
SECRET RETIREMENT PLANS: DOES OBAMA EXPECT TO LOSE?
Insider reveals internal polls, luxury Hawaii estate ready for January
$35 million Hawaii estate regarded as possible Obama retirement home
Are Obama insiders secretly making retirement plans for the Obamas with the expectation the president will lose his bid for re-election in November?
Very quietly, Obama’s chief financier, Penny Pritzker, has entered the Hawaii housing market to buy a retirement home for the president and his family that will be available not in 2016, but in January 2013, according to a confidential source within Pritzker’s Chicago organization
Pritzker, a wealthy Chicago business executive and heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, served as national finance chairman for Obama’s 2008 campaign and is the co-chairman of his 2012 effort.

When the Hawaiian Islands collapse and fall apart in landslides
January 28, 2014 – In our January Volcano Watch articles — Hawaii Island’s fifth annual Volcano Awareness Month — we are exploring important questions about how Hawaiian volcanoes work. Last week, we discussed how Hawaiian Islands grow; this week, we talk about how they fall apart. In 1964, irregular submarine topography north of Oahu and Molokai was identified in newly available maps of the sea floor made by the U.S. Navy. James Moore, then Scientist-in-Charge at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, suggested that this odd bathymetry might reflect massive landslides originating from those islands. Moore’s interpretation was disputed for more than 20 years until comprehensive mapping of the sea floor around the entire state of Hawaii was completed in the late 1980s. It turned out that Moore was right. Large — even catastrophic — submarine landslide structures litter the sea floor around the Hawaiian Islands. In fact, 17 major landslides have been identified off the shores of the main Hawaiian Islands. Fortunately, these slides are exceedingly rare — occurring, on average, only once every 350,000 years. The largest landslides constitute significant portions of the islands from which they originated. Imagine if 10 percent of one of the islands suddenly collapsed into the ocean. Such an event would displace a huge amount of water and cause a large tsunami.
Deposits of coral and sand have been found approximately 1,000 feet above sea level on several of the Hawaiian Islands. Catastrophic landslides are believed to have generated gigantic tsunami waves that washed ashore and left these deposits behind. Evidence across the Hawaiian Islands suggests that landslides occur during all stages of a volcano’s life. The submarine volcano Loihi — the youngest in the Hawaiian chain, located southeast of Hawaii Island — is characterized by a number of small landslides, even though the volcano hasn’t yet breached the surface of the ocean. On the other hand, large landslides from Oahu and Molokai clearly occurred well after the islands were established above sea level. We also know that not all landslides in Hawaii are catastrophic. The south flank of Kilauea is sliding continuously into the ocean at a rate of about 3 inches a year. This motion is punctuated by large, devastating earthquakes that can cause tens of feet of seaward motion in just a few seconds — as when the magnitude 7.7 temblor struck Hawaii Island in 1975 — as well as “slow earthquakes” that are associated with a few inches of seaward motion over the course of one to two days.
Will Kilauea’s south flank ever collapse suddenly? Since the shape of the south flank indicates that the slide has been active for thousands of years, there is no reason to expect that its behavior will change any time soon. Although most evidence suggests that it will continue to sag gradually, this question remains open to interpretation. What, then, causes large landslides in Hawaii? Models suggest that magma pressure alone is not adequate to produce a massive landslide. One can imagine a scenario, however, in which a large eruption weakens an already unstable volcano, allowing gravity to pull the volcano apart. Future scientific research must focus on the mechanism for giant landslides in Hawaii, which represent a major, infrequent hazard. Since other volcanic islands — such as the Canaries and the Azores — are also subject to catastrophic collapse, lessons learned from the Hawaii example might be fruitfully applied to mitigating hazards for the benefit of citizens elsewhere around the world. Next week, our annual Volcano Awareness Month Volcano Watch series will conclude with an examination of questions related to volcano monitoring. -WHT

Airplanes nearly collided off Hawaii
May 19, 2014 - 2 Boeing 757 jets that nearly collided north of Hawaii last month were at altitudes assigned to them by air traffic controllers. The cause of the near-disaster April 25 is still under investigation.
United Airlines Flight 1205 was headed east and had to descend quickly to avoid a westbound US Airways jet.
The United pilots received an audible warning that the plane was in danger from its traffic collision avoidance system.
United plunged 600 feet in 60 seconds.
About 590 people were on the 2 planes.

Hawaii astronomer captures image of forming planet
October 2011 HONOLULU — A University of Hawaii astronomer has captured the first direct image of a planet being born.
Adam Kraus and his colleague, Michael Ireland from Macquarie University and the Australian Astronomical Observatory, used Keck telescopes on Mauna Kea to find the planet being formed from gas and dust, the Institute for Astronomy said Wednesday.
LkCa 15 b is 450 light years away from Earth and is the youngest planet ever found.
Kraus presented the discovery Wednesday at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. Kraus and Ireland's research paper on the discovery is due to appear in The Astrophysical Journal.
Scientists hadn't been able to see such young planets before because the light of the stars they're orbiting outshines them.
"In the past, you couldn't measure this kind of phenomenon because it's happening so close to the star. But, for the first time, we've been able to directly measure the planet itself as well as the dusty matter around it," Kraus said in a statement.
Kraus and Ireland used mirrors to cancel out the bright light of the star near LkCa 15 b.
"It's like we have an array of small mirrors," Kraus said. "We can manipulate the light and cancel out distortions."
The astronomers found the planet while surveying 150 young dusty stars. This led to a more concentrated study of a dozen stars.
The star LkCa 15 — the planet is named after its star — was the team's second target. They immediately knew they were seeing something new, so they gathered more data on the star a year later.
"We realized we had uncovered a super Jupiter-sized gas planet, but that we could also measure the dust and gas surrounding it. We'd found a planet at its very beginning," Kraus said.

Hawaii Volcano warning
Sept 5, 2014 Hawaii issued a warning Thursday to Kaohe Homesteads community in the path of a Kilauea lava flow on Hawaii Big Island, as the molten rock moved to within a mile of homes.
I find it interesting that both the Pacific volcano and an Atlantic volcano in Iceland are both spewing lava this month.
Hawaii island declares emergency over volcano threat
Hawaii's Big Island has declared a state of emergency as lava from an active volcano threatens nearby homes, which could be evacuated within days, officials and reports said Friday.
Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi signed a proclamation Thursday after the lava flow from the Kilauea volcano advanced to within a mile of a residential area known as the Ka‘ohe Homesteads.
"We are taking this step to ensure our residents have time to prepare their families, their pets, and their livestock for a safe and orderly evacuation from Ka‘ohe in the event the flow continues to advance," Kenoi said.
The emergency proclamation lets authorities close roads to non-residents, to make it easier for people who live there to evacuate rapidly if necessary, said Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Darryl Oliveira.
No evacuation has yet been ordered, but residents are being urged to "finalize their evacuation plans and monitor county Civil Defense updates closely in the days ahead," said a statement from the mayor's office.
According to the Honolulu Star newspaper, the lava flow could reach houses within days, possibly a week.
Hawaii Island, or the Big Island, is the largest of the eight main islands which make up the Pacific US state -- an archipelago that includes hundreds of smaller volcanic islands.
'There's no control': Hawaii watches lava's creep
PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) — Lava from one of the world's most active volcanos has been advancing at a slower pace the past few days and is now moving parallel to a sparsely populated subdivision on Hawaii's Big Island.
Lava from Kilauea volcano was still at least a mile from any homes in Kaohe Homesteads, Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira said.
Oliveira took a helicopter flight over the area Monday and saw the lava had crept about 150 yards from the previous day. It's moving north for now but could still stop or change directions.
"It's been doing that for the last several days," he said of its northern pull. Prior to Friday, it was going northeast toward the subdivision.
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has warned the lava could reach the subdivision in a matter of days.
Oliveira said he didn't anticipate issuing an evacuation order Monday. But residents should be prepared because it's difficult to predict the lava's movement. It was also raining over the flow site, he noted, which meant there wasn't a wildfire threat.
"That's good for today," he said. "But it doesn't get us out of any potential threat down the road. It just means it's going to be a very slow process."
The lava warning has created an "edgy" mood in Puna, the rural region on the southeast side of the Big Island that is at risk from the lava, said Bill Parecki, a real estate agent who has lived in the area for 42 years. The area is still recovering from the damage from a tropical storm about a month ago.
"Everybody's a little concerned," he said. "Everybody's a little worried. We just have to see where the lava goes. There's no control. It's Mother Nature."
A big concern is lava crossing roads and blocking Puna off from the rest of the island, or becoming "lava-locked," he said.
Business has been quiet since Tropical Storm Iselle made landfall over the region last month, said Mary Bicknell, owner of Big Island Book Buyers, a bookstore in downtown Pahoa.
"We're always watching it, but we're not usually threatened by it," she said of the lava.
Lava approaches vacant lots in Hawaii subdivision
Sep 12, 2014 — Lava from one of the world's most active volcanos soon could reach three vacant lots in a rural subdivision on Hawaii's Big Island, but officials are hopeful homes will be spared.
Based on the lava's movement of about 200 to 300 yards a day, the flow from Kilauea volcano was expected to reach the lots in Kaohe Homesteads in coming days, Hawaii County spokesman Kevin Dayton said.
The large lot closest to the flow is owned by the state, while the other two are privately owned, he said.
"The fact that it's veering somewhat to the north as opposed to the east is a hopeful sign," Dayton said.
While no evacuations have been ordered, residents were asked to remain on alert and be prepared for possible changes in the lava's course.
The slow-moving molten rock could spread and slow even further in coming days as it moves from a steeper grade to more level land, Dayton said.
The lava was about 3 miles from Pahoa Village Road and 3.5 miles from Highway 130, Dayton said. Highway 130 is a lifeline for the mostly rural Puna district, which would be cut off from the rest of the island if lava crosses the busy two-lane highway.
In preparation for that possibility, work was to continue into the weekend and next week to turn little-used, defunct roads into alternate routes.
Lava could reach the highway within weeks.
State and county officials plan to survey one of the unpaved roads for any archaeological or cultural elements that need to be preserved, Dayton said.
The flow has snaked more than 10 miles through thick forest since it first was observed emerging from a vent in late June. The state announced Friday that Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve would be closed until further notice because of dangers from the flow.
It has engulfed trees and other vegetation in its path, sending up large smoke plumes, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said in a Friday update. However, rainfall in the area has prevented fires from spreading from the lava, officials said.
Lava flow remains stalled at front, active upslope(Hawaii)
9/24/14 The front of the June 27 lava flow remained stalled Tuesday morning, though breakouts upslope were active, according to Hawaii County Civil Defense.
A breakout several hundred yards upslope was observed advancing into forest along the north edge of the flow during an overflight Tuesday.
That breakout advanced about 110 yards since Monday morning and was moving to the northeast, according to Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
Breakouts also remain active closer to Puu Oo, about midway along the length of the flow.
“None of these breakouts by itself has been vigorous, but together they compose a significant portion of the total flow volume,” HVO said on its website.
HAWAII Patient in isolation at Queen’s Medical Center, Ebola a possibility
October 1, 2014 The Dept of Health has confirmed a patient is currently in isolation and undergoing testing in Honolulu.
The Hawaii Nurses Association said the person is being treated at The Queen’s Medical Center.
Officials told KHON2 Ebola is a possibility, however the patient has yet to be specifically tested for the virus.
“We are early in the investigation of a patient — very, very, early, who we’re investigating that might have Ebola,” said Dr. Melissa Viray, deputy state epidemiologist. “It’s very possible that they do and they have Ebola, I think it’s also more likely that they have another condition that presents with similar symptoms.”
Dr. Viray said the patient could have a number of illnesses including Ebola, flu, malaria and typhoid.
Dr. Viray wouldn’t confirm any details about the patient, symptoms, or if the person had recently traveled to West Africa. But she did say red flags for Ebola include fever and recent travel to that area.
“Why is this person being isolated?” KHON2 asked.
“When we’ve asked the hospitals to tell us about is anyone with a travel history, and anyone with a fever, and when those things come together, we’ve asked them to be very careful and in an abundance of caution while you’re working, for whatever else might be going on, also make sure you isolate against Ebola, just in case,” she said.
“So it sounds like this person does have a fever and recently traveled to West Africa,” KHON2 asked.
“Again, I can’t be the one to confirm that,” Dr. Viray said.
The patient is currently being kept in a regular room and anyone who goes in or out must wear protective gear, officials said.
“They’re monitoring who goes in and out of that room and making sure that everybody as safe as possible, while the patient is being evaluated for Ebola and what other conditions that patient might have,” Dr. Viray said.
“Should the public concerned?” KHON2 asked.
“No, absolutely not. Like I said, this is a possible case we’re investigating. We don’t know if this is Ebola or a number of other conditions,” she said.
Health officials say it’s too early to say if the person will be tested.
There are 1,400 nurses assigned to work at The Queen’s Medical Center. The hospital has assured them that procedures are in place to protect them while the patient is being monitored.
A message sent to all employees Wednesday said that the hospital is “evaluating a patient for possible symptoms that may be consistent with Ebola.”
The union that represents the nurses was tipped off about the message Wednesday afternoon.
Joan Craft, president of the Hawaii Nurses Association, immediately contacted the hospital for assurance that safety procedures are in place to protect her members.
“Blood and fluid procedures are safe, but there are a lot of contagious things you can come in contact with,” she told KHON2. “Ebola is very frightening, but procedures are safe and we just want to make sure everyone knows that.”
The HNA also wanted to make sure that if someone is pregnant or otherwise uncomfortable dealing with the patient, that he or she does not have to be involved in the monitoring of the patient.
Experts gave us that reassurance last month and said then that unless you traveled to an area that was experiencing an outbreak, the risk of contracting Ebola is very low.
There is no room designed specifically for Ebola at Queen’s Medical Center, but the hospital says it is equipped to deal with the virus if needed.
“If someone showed up in the ER with suspected Ebola symptoms, they would immediately be placed in an isolation room,” Erlaine Bello, Queen’s Medical Center infectious disease specialist, previously told KHON2. “The door would be closed at all times. There would be a facilities log kept of everyone who entered the room and anyone who entered the room at a minimum would be wearing gloves, eye protection, goggles and a mask and impermeable gown.”
Dr. Bello said major hospitals and the health department have a good relationship with the federal CDC and that the state itself has the resources and the expertise to handle a case of Ebola if it were to appear here in the islands.

Hawaii to challenge Trump order in court
Mar 8, 2017 - The state of Hawaii intends to seek a temporary restraining order against President Donald Trump's new executive order restricting travel from 6 Muslim-majority countries.
The Coming Showdown Between The United States And North Korea Has Hawaii In The Crosshairs
President Donald Trump rejected Kim's assessment, tweeting after the statement: "It won't happen!" The administration has not yet established a missile defense plan that would protect the United States from a North Korean ICBM, though it is in the process of reviewing U.S. policy toward North Korea.
North Korea could soon have the capacity to launch an attack on Hawaii that would devastate America’s Pacific military bases, accelerating the need for the United States to upgrade missile defenses in the area.
The United States today relies on ground-based ballistic missile interceptors deployed in California and Alaska to protect Hawaii, but these defenses would do little to guard U.S. territory in the Pacific against a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which officials believe is nearing completion.
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency in February test fired a new SM-3 Block IIA missile from Hawaii that successfully intercepted an incoming ballistic missile, but the Pentagon does not maintain a permanent missile defense installation or detection capabilities on the Hawaiian Islands.
North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won’t happen!
