Sixteenth President of the U.S Abraham Lincoln. Acclaimed actress Meryl Streep. Director and actor Clint Eastwood. Genius and physicist Albert Einstein. Talk show host David Letterman. The boy wizard who lived, Harry Potter. Then there’s me. What do we all have in common? We’re all Introverts.
Approximately every seven minutes, a child is bullied at school in the United States. On any given school day, more than 160, 000 students choose to stay home because of the fear of bullying. Seventy-one percent of school shootings are connected to harassment. An argument with a bully is 80 percent more likely to end in a physical fight.
Many students are very disappointed with the math system because it seems as if they are trying to make students fail. There are so many assignments and problems that are assigned to students that are due on certain deadlines which makes it hard for those who need extra help.
There is a science to parking at UHMC—You could even call it an art form. Now, claiming a parking space is not as simple as driving to school and looking for a space. The key to your success in acquiring one of these coveted spots starts at home, before you even leave your house.

Black kitty, orange kitty, white kitty, calico! I happen to have quite a colorful cat colony in the alleyway behind my house. Surprisingly, the most efficient way to deal with Maui’s feral cat problem is to have colonies instead of individual roaming around.
You can walk from one end of Front Street to the other and hear the musicians playing classics like Brown Eyed-Girl, White Sandy Beach, and ... Brown Eyed-Girl again. For a visitor, this is a nice, relaxing setting to get a glimpse of Hawai‘i. But if you live on Maui and love a variety of music genres, get ready to take a boat or a plane just to see a new act.
Human beings are prone to making mistakes, that’s just part of the package. And over time we have developed a code dividing right from wrong to be able to judge the nature of the errors which are committed. This is called law.

I love food! I love it hot, I love it cold, and when I can’t finish it I want to take it with me. Sounds easy right? Not much effort needed, just put it in a box and go. There’s just one thing: do you even know what that box is made of? Or how long it will take to decompose, if it even will. Here in Hawaii we are trying to push forward with eco-friendly technology, we even banned most plastic bags. While this is an amazing step in the green direction, it is ultimately up to us as consumers to pay attention to what we buy and use.
Being abruptly woken up by the high-pitched sound of a seven-year-old girl as she runs past my window in an obnoxiously loud manner at seven-thirty in the morning is not exactly how I want to start my Saturday. It wasn’t long after I moved into the “student housing” apartments associated with UH Maui College when I realized that I would certainly not be renewing my lease at the end of the semester.
In the history of our species, there have been 12 men who have stepped foot on the surface of another world. Until Saturday, nine of those men were still with us. Now, that number is eight. Neil Armstrong, a man whose immortal words as he made humanity’s first step on another world echoes down the millennia, is dead at the age of 82.
You’ve seen the commercials. A guy in a polo shirt extols the virtues of a little rubber band with a sticker on it, claiming you’ll lose weight, increase your metabolism, quit wetting the bed, develop the balance of a Shaolin monk, and be able to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Icelandic backwards for the low price of $59.95.
