The Hawaiʻi Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) crew is busy packing and preparing. Three men and three women will spend 120 days of isolation in an extremely remote, thousand square foot habitat on Mauna Loa, Hawaiʻi; 8,200 feet above sea level. They can only leave the geodesic dome in simulation space suits.

The object of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa project is to research how teams of astronauts will perform during long-duration space exploration to destinations like Mars.

The Hawaiian language came back from the brink of extinction in the early 1980s thanks to a revival program by a small group of educators.
When it started, the number of Native Hawaiian speakers was in the hundreds, now there are thousands.

In January 2014, 300 teachers, school administrators, researchers and delegates representing indigenous languages in 25 of the 50 United States and ten countries came to Hawaii to take part in the 21st annual Stabilizing Indigenous Languages Symposium.

A new agreement between the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy (DKICP) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, pharmacy.uhh.hawaii.edu, and Rangsit University (RSU), www.rsu.ac.th,  in Thailand will allow students and faculty more freedom to exchange ideas and experiences. 

The U.S.-THAI Students and Pharmacists/Faculty Members Exchange Program will give students in the fourth year of pharmacy school a chance to go to RSU for their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences and bring Ph.D. students to Hawaiʻi to work in DKICP labs. It also will allow faculty to collaborate on pharmaceutical sciences research and to work with professional pharmacists on pharmaceutical care and medication therapy management. 

RSU is part of the Bangkok metropolis, located in the Pathum Thani province, directly north of Bangkok. This is the second Thai university to enter an agreement with DKICP. The first one with Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok was signed in 2011. 

"I am very proud of our faculty for developing this relationship," DKICP Dean John Pezzuto said. "This is a prime example of how we are extending our reach to every corner of the globe in order to give our students a first-class education while investigating approaches to discovering new drugs." 

Supakit Wongwiwatthananukit, associate professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice, began talks about the exchange program with the administration at RSU last July when he was invited to be a visiting professor/scholar. 

"Students can gain international perspectives of Thailand public health, roles and responsibilities of pharmacists in various settings and develop interprofessional relationships," Wongwiwatthananukit said. "In addition to giving our students a wider range of exposure, this is a great opportunity for international collaboration for our Ph.D. program." 

An example of possible joint projects might be working with RSU faculty at their Herbal Medicinal Products Research and Development Center, called Sun Herb Thai Chinese Manufacturing facility. The building is a joint venture between the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine, China and Rangsit University Faculty of Pharmacy. 

"This building enables the research and clinical trials of many Thai and Chinese traditional remedies," Wongwiwatthananukit said. "I believe we can make significant contributions to this facility through our own work in natural products and Hawaiian traditional medicine."

UH Hilo continues to cooperate with Hawaiʻi Island police as they investigate a report filed by a 25-year old male who identified himself as an employee of UH Hilo regarding an alleged firearm threat on UH Hilo's campus (Police report C13033008). 

An initial investigation indicates that the male who reported this threat is neither an employee of UH Hilo nor Hawaii Community College. Police are trying to interview the 25-year old male for further details. 

Anyone who has information about this case is asked to call the Police Department's non-emergency line at 935-3311 or contact Detective Clarence Davies at 961-2384 or cdavies@co.hawaii.hi.us.
