Quarterly eWaste Recycling Program Established For UH

The University of Hawaii has launched a free systemwide quarterly electronic waste (ewaste) recycling program for all campuses including UH Education Centers. The program allows for earth-friendly recycling of unwanted electronic equipment belonging to the university; all ewaste will be processed in certified mainland facilities; a Certificate of Destruction will be provided when the destruction of the equipment is complete. Recycling and disposal services are provided courtesy of Apple.

Representatives have been designated on each campus for aggregation of equipment, palletization, and processing of paperwork for pickup during the months of April, July, August, and October each year. Contact Kauai CC Computer Services to determine which procedures have been established for participation. This program is for UH equipment only, no personal or public ewaste. You are encouraged to advertise equipment on the UH Electronic Swap Meet (http://www.hawaii.edu/swapmeet/) for reuse prior to recycling. All equipment must be processed per the Disposal Guidelines For Unused UH Computer Equipment (http://www.hawaii.edu/askus/750)

The 8th Annual Spring Gourmet Gala A Great Success

April 16, 2010

On behalf of the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Kaua'i Community College, I would like to extend our deepest appreciation and mahalo to everyone who helped make this fundraising event a great success. Even during these tough economic times, with your help, the tickets sold out two weeks in advance and in addition we were able to garner much needed sponsorships from our Kaua'i businesses.

Volunteering for an event of this size and complexity says a lot about all those who helped. Many months of intricate planning and organizing is rewarded when the music starts, the doors open and the guests are able to enjoy the greatest and latest in culinary fashion matched with the most delicious wine pairings; together with a fantastic silent auction & blind auction with prizes valued over $7,000! What a great gathering of happy faces and happy tummies!!
Thank you for making this event an opportunity for our culinary arts students to work alongside the biggest names in Island Chefs Alan Wong and Vikram Garg as well as Kaua'i’s best chefs! The students were both nervous and thrilled, but most grateful for the experience!

We thank all the volunteers for making this Kaua'i Community College’s signature event a great success
and hope to see you all next year on April 15th! Please enjoy the photos taken by Kent Tanigawa!

In the meantime……Bon Appétit!

Voice Class Performance Next Monday

If you have the time and interest, please come by to the Music Classroom next Monday (May 3) at 1:30pm. My beginning voice class will be performing in public for the first time and everyone is invited to hear them sing. They've worked very hard and have made great strides thanks to that hard work; now they're very proud to be able to share the fruit of their labors. So please come and support them, if you're able. Feel free to bring a late lunch. It's informal, and you can come and go as you please (in between singers). I'll send a reminder out later in the week. Hope to see you there!

Addendum (5/3): There are 12 songs lasting about 3-4 minutes each, so it's best to attend earlier than later.

KCC Lecturer Writes in The Nation About Militarization of the Pacific

Esther Koohan Paik, who teaches Digital Storytelling/Video (ART 157) and who has also taught English at KCC, has been published in the May 3 issue of the political weekly, The Nation. Know on campus by her nickname--"Camera"--Paik has worked as both a print and video journalist advocating for the rights of Pacific peoples. In this article, she describes the U.S. military's colossal and devastating plans for the U.S. territory of Guam and the adjacent Mariana islands. There are many parallels to be found between the challenges faced by the people of Guam and those that confront the people of Hawaii.
