A Letter From the Editor

When will the Matrix get here?  It won’t be soon enough.  I need some sort of port that connects to my cerebrum so that I can upload information on the fly… like now.  This past week, aside from working full-time and managing a staff of 25 people, I spent about 13 hours doing math, 12 hours studying accounting, wrote three papers and read so much that my head is spinning.  I know you guys are feeling me, cause you’re in the same rickety boat! If the Matrix were here, I could upload that movie that I need to watch for my law class, study for my accounting exam, attend all of my staff and board meetings and write this article while still having time left over.  I plan on ordering pizza tonight so that I can do my online math quiz and still eat food.  I found coupons so that I can order two large pizza’s for the price of one, enabling me to have uninterrupted sustenance for days.  Shwabang!  One less aspect of life …

I have noticed a crazed look in people’s tired eyes as they run from class to class before heading off to work then back to class again, and finally home to do laundry, clean and …

A Letter From the Editor

Welcome to the year 2015. For freshmen this can mean adventures finding your way around campus, figuring out what clubs to join and making new friendships… one of which will hopefully be with your roommate, because if not, it could make for a long semester. For returning students, this could mean that you have surpassed many of these initial hurdles and are now, more-than-likely, seasoned UH Hilo scholars looking frantically forward to spring break. Well, we can all have spring break to look forward to, but first lets take a glance back through 2014. A 16-year-old boy became a wheel well stowaway, catching a ride to Maui in the landing gear of a jumbo jet and, according to reports by CNN, surviving subzero temperatures and oxygen depletion for almost five hours. The Hawaii Tribune Herald printed statistics showing that driving fatalities dropped significantly on the Big Island from 26 deaths in 2013 to 11 deaths in 2014. David Ige beat out incumbent Neil Abercrombie in an historical landslide primary election, and then went on to …
