President of UH East-West Center Speaks at APEC Conference in Peru

I just noticed that the president of UH’s East-West Center, Charles Morrison, spoke at the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation this weekend in Lima, Peru.

In his speech, he emphasized the following:

“Resolving the current crisis is going to take a lot of sustained regional and global cooperation,” said Charles Morrison, the Council’s chairman and president of the East-West Center in Hawaii.

More on the “Hawaii Campus Girls” Website

I got an interesting comment from “Hilo Reader” on the blog I just posted on the Hawaii Campus Girls Website:

What makes the owner a pervert exactly? All of the girls look like paid models. This isn’t a secret candid upskirt site. It’s soft core porn.

There are tons of porn sites on the internet. Lots of them have niche content. This one happens to be Hawaiian girls. Many people find Hawaiian girls very attractive but are not a part of the culture or community and will never be able to connect with one on any level. What’s wrong with looking at pictures of willing and paid models?

Which spurred me to look into the site a bit further:

I did find “Soft Porn” and pictures on the site here that one can only assume that this site is an amateur porn site of some sort.

The guys that supposedly run the site:

hg2

hg3

After looking at the “About Us” on the website, it comes to my attention that this site probably actually originates from outside of the United States completely.

I don’t even dare print what it reads in the foreign language because I don’t know what it says, but you can see for yourself it’s not English… and it certainly isn’t “Hawaiian”.

When Will Tiffany Edwards Hunt Start Blogging Again… The Poll

I’ve been anxiously awaiting Emily Naeole’s Legislative Aide, Tiffany Edwards, to update her blog over at Big Island Chronicle.

She has mentioned her blog several times recently, although she seems to be having writing cramps.

I wonder if being a legislative aide is holding her back from writing?  I figure I’ll give her a little kick start to get that writing anxiety out of the way!

“Hawaii Campus Girls” Website Run by Mainland Perv

I was just checking out recent Youtube videos and I stumbled across a website I haven’t seen before.

Hawaii Campus Girls

Here is the youtube video I found on it… Looks like soft porn if you ask me and I see very few local looking girls.  ;)

Anything to make a quick buck off the “Hawaii” Brand name… and this time… Hawaii Women in General.

A quick Domain search on the site shows that it is proxy registered and administered from the mainland of course:

BIVN Turns to Youtube… (John Peck on Surfing at the Raw Games)

I see that David Corrigan from Big Island Video News posted a piece of footage that he recently took on youtube from the Raw Games.

I recently asked him about how he was storing his videos and whether they were being archived.  He told me his secret… however, it wasn’t youtube.

I mentioned to him a while back that I just like to steal videos off youtube… and sure enough… looks like I found one he posted today.  (Gotcha DAVE!)

He recently posted this video of John Peck talking story on Surfing at the Recent Raw Games that I blogged about here.

I guess next time… he will probably turn off the embedding on the Video so I can’t scoop his story.

Oh the internet… don’t you just love it… Gotcha Dave… Of course… he could get me and simply pull it after I post this blog! (If you want a better version of this, I’m sure he will have it on his site in due time.)

BREAKING NEWS! Looks like BIVN maybe switching to a WordPress Blog soon!

“Hawaii247” and “Kona Times”… Any Other Big Island Bloggers?

Hat tip to Aaron over at the Kona Blog for blogging about a new Big Island Blog…  “Hawaii247

(I’m assuming the 247 stands for 24 hours a day 7 days a week… so if he can keep his blogging up to 24 hours a day… I’ll be really impressed.  I find it hard to write something every day at times!)

It looks like former WHT Photographer Baron Sekiya is taking a “Newspaper” format for his blog.

It’s great to see other blogs on the Big Island.

Aaron also recently blogged about the “Kona Times“.

I’m adding both of these sites to my “Blogroll” as I’m always looking for new reads and interesting finds here on the Big Island and the Newspapers just aren’t cutting it.

Anyone else have a BIG ISLAND blog that I might be interested in?  I update my blogroll every now and then as people seem to drift on/off with there blogs.  I always keep them bookmarked if they do quit blogging for a while so I can bring them back later.

So I Was Wrong With Big Islands Weather… The Real Scoop

So I was wrong in predicting that Big Island would be getting drenched.  However, the other islands did get quite wet, although not as much as people were predicting.

Here is the best Hawaii Weather Report you will see:
