HVO geologists get fresh lava samples as close to the vent as possible. Once the sample is scooped from the pāhoehoe lobe, it is quickly quenched in a bucket of water to stop the growth of any crystals and to preserve the composition of the liquid lava.
Once cooled, the sample is sent first to UH Hilo for quick analysis of a few components and prepared for a fuller analysis of its chemical components by a lab on the mainland. These data are used, with HVO’s geophysical monitoring data, as another way to assess any changes that may be occurring within Kīlauea volcano.
A time-lapse camera on the rim of Puʻu ʻŌʻō crater captured this image at dawn.
The view is towards the southeast, and shows two glowing pits in the southern portion of the crater floor. Overflight the next day showed that these pits are filled with small lava ponds.

So went to work today everything was normal and then all he’ll broke lose!!!!!
My co worker goes and clocks out for lunch and then walks out to order his meal when a car goes through the building. The car hits him n he goes flying.
It was the most scariest thing I have ever experienced in the work place.
Invasive species introductions to Hawaii often end in regret and a list of should-haves.
Featuring videography from award-winning film makers Masako Cordray and Chris Reickert, this half-hour film examines the biology, impacts, and potential solutions to the spread of little fire ants through interviews with scientists, farmers, and community on the Big Island reeling from the impacts of this minuscule, but devastating, ant.
Viewers will learn how to identify and report new infestations, helping to protect Hawaii from this small stinging ant.

Well once again I’m getting threatened by an attorney for something that seems ridiculous and I will ask this question now… Is taking photographs of cars and the signs that are on them illegal?
Earlier today, as I do on many Wednesdays, I posted a post entitled: “Wordless Wednesday – I Lost My Implants…” where I simply stated: “I saw this truck parked at Island Naturals in Pahoa on the Big Island yesterday:” and then posted a picture of a truck that I saw parked at Island Naturals in Pahoa.
This afternoon I received an email from Honolulu Law firm WILLIAM J. NAGLE III, ESQ., Roeca Luria & Hiraoka LLP stating:
This firm represents Dr. *********** in the matter of the photograph of the sign displayed on your blog dated 1/29/14. We request that the photograph be removed from your blog (damontucker.com) as the contents of the sign are offensive to our client. Because your blog is widely read on the Big Island, the photograph of the sign has disappointed and upset Dr. *********.
Mahalo for your kokua in this matter.
Well I don’t know what I should do really and feel that I have every right to post pictures I take in public. I was just posting an observation I saw and really wasn’t making any statement other then it was “Wordless” in a sense.
I’ve left the blog post up… but have now removed the Doctors name from the picture.
IS PHOTOGRAPHY A CRIME? Here is the incriminating photograph… minus the doctors name:

Wordless Wednesday – Mysterious Facebook Comment Leaves Me Wondering About Body Found Hanging in Puna Last Week
1/28/14 UPDATE: Hawaiʻi Island police have identified human remains as that of a 47-year-old man reported missing in 2012.
Robert Allen Park of Mountain View was reported missing on October 22, 2012.
On January 6 of this year, human remains were found in an abandoned house on Pikake Street in the Fern Acres subdivision.
The body was identified as Park on Monday (January 27) through dental records.
An autopsy was conducted January 7 but the cause of death is still pending. Police do not suspect foul play.
So last week I received a private message on my public “Facebook Page” from someone who obviously follows this website. They informed me that there was a body found hanging in an old shack last on Pikake near Rose St.
I haven’t heard anything from local authorities however, the person swears to the event happening and an officer allegedly came by their house to ask them if they had heard of anything.
The body found on Pikake was a suicide. His name was Robert Park. …..There were several signs posted in the Fern Acres area “Looking for Rob”.

In observance of the 12th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, Gov. Neil Abercrombie has ordered that the flags of the United States and State of Hawaii be displayed at half-staff at all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawaii National Guard from sunrise to sunset tomorrow, September 11, 2013.
President Barack Obama today proclaimed September 11 as Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, calling for the U.S. flag to be flown at half-staff. The presidential proclamation states:
“… On September 11, 2001, amid shattered glass, twisted steel, and clouds of dust, the spirit of America shone through. We remember the sacrifice of strangers and first responders who rushed into darkness to carry others from danger. We remember the unbreakable bonds of unity we felt in the long days that followed – how we held each other, how we came to our neighbors’ aid, how we prayed for one another. We recall how Americans of every station joined together to support the survivors in their hour of need and to heal our Nation in the years that followed.
“Today, we can honor those we lost by building a Nation worthy of their memories. Let us also live up to the selfless example of the heroes who gave of themselves in the face of such great evil. As we mark the anniversary of September 11, I invite all Americans to observe a National Day of Service and Remembrance by uniting in the same extraordinary way we came together after the attacks. Like the Americans who chose compassion when confronted with cruelty, we can show our love for one another by devoting our time and talents to those in need …”

(Gov. Abercrombie will be offering remarks at the annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at 12:15 p.m. tomorrow in Tamarind Park, Bishop Square, in Downtown Honolulu.)
