What I remembered most about my home in England is my father's mini-library. I visited it whenever he was on a business trip.
He had rows of hardbound books that he bought from the Continent. The wooden table was often covered with research papers
, a few pocketbooks and letters from his colleagues.
I noticed a red book one Saturday afternoon. I can’t recall it to be around before. I examined its pages. The paper seemed to be of… Continue

I was amazed at Sebastien's latest book. It was exceptional. I wanted to know if it took him long to finish it.
He admitted that he struggled at the beginning. He was having another bout of writer's block when he was working on the first few pages. Term papers
were scattered in his bed, and he drank seven cans of Coke.
He went to the window, and looked at the English countryside. It was dark and raining, and mist seemed to creep… Continue

Ray Anderson loves Maui, and we love him right back. What’s not to love about a CEO of a billion dollar company, who once called himself a “plunderer of the Earth.” His business practices were so un-environmentally friendly, he actually felt that he would be “going to jail” for “theft of his grandchildren’s future.” That candor and honesty is what makes Ray the visionary and leader in “industrial ecology.”
Ray visited Maui this past February as part of Dowling Company’s Focus Green… Continue

What is the value of a strawberry guava tree? This question is vitally important for future compensation of property owners whose trees become infested with the Brazilian scale insect, Tectococcus ovatus, that the government is wanting to release.
We can argue with the scientists about the risks of this bug mutating and adapting to attack other plant species, such as related myrtles, including mountain apple, guava, rose apple, surinam cherry, java plum, euclyptus, o'hia, and much… Continue
