Almost everybody at one time or another has experienced the ups and downs of romance. Whether the relationship was enduring or short-lived, the experience is hard to forget. All those familiar memories come to life in the UH Hilo Spring Musical I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, which opens a two-week run this month at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center.

Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, April 8, 9, 15, and 16 at 7:30 p.m., with matinee performances at 2 p.m. on April 10 and 17. The adult-themed musical is based on the book and lyrics by Joe Pietro, music by Jimmy Roberts, and performed by a cast of seven men and women portraying a collection of characters embroiled in the dating game. Together, they sing their tales of woe and dance through every conceivable twist and turn as they roll the proverbial dice on romance, overcome setbacks and contemplate their choices along the way.

Four seniors from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo are on their way to the Microsoft Imagine Cup U.S. finals held March 31 in San Francisco. Team No Sleep members Bryson Fung, Pauleen Pante, Reuben Tate and Anthony Vizzoneare participating in the advanced division of the competition, under the category of World Citizenship. This division of the Imagine Cup is a global competition, with efforts specifically geared toward changing the world for the better.

The team developed software called Restoring Ecosystems Services Tool, or REST for short. Depending on your purpose, the program can help you build ecosystems that are more fire resistant, more resistant to invasive species, or with higher capacity for carbon storage.  The tool allows researchers to design for ecosystem function, by introducing non-invasive non-native plants that help to achieve specific goals.

A radio project that has roots dating back to the 1960s and the beginning of the Hawaiian Renaissance is making its way to the public thanks to Larry Kimura, the internationally renowned “grandfather” of Hawaiian language revitalization.

Kimura, an associate professor of Hawaiian language and Hawaiian studies at Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani, the College of Hawaiian Language and colleagues are currently working on a project to provide online access to recording of his radio show, Ka Leo Hawaiʻi, that featured Native Hawaiian speakers. The program started in 1972 and continued for 16 years of broadcasts.

The digitized recordings are being uploaded to Ulukau.org, an electronic library hosted by the Hawaiian language college that offers the public free access to books, newspapers, genealogies and a variety of other Hawaiian language media.  The Ulukau website will eventually showcase an audio library of 417 recordings from the Ka Leo Hawaiʻi broadcasts.

Ka Leo Hawaiʻi documents some of Hawaiʻi’s last fluent Native Hawaiian speakers who descended from an unbroken heritage of Hawaiian language as it was traditionally passed down from one generation to the next.
