The University of Hawaiʻi Office of Mauna Kea Management has closed the Maunakea summit road and is currently assessing damage to the road and stability of the slopes for potential rock falls.

UH exercised its authority under the Mauna Kea Comprehensive Management Plan to close the road last week due to hazardous conditions. They included the presence of boulders on the road, rock walls that fully obstructed the road in some areas and the erection of two ahu on the road. The obstructions prevented the university from grading the road, a necessary road safety procedure performed twice weekly.

The Mauna Kea summit road beginning at the Halepohaku mid-level facilities will remain closed to all but authorized personnel until further notice.

The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo is now even more affordable for the coming academic year, thanks to the UH Board of Regents recently voting to limit the scheduled tuition increase for Hawai‘i residents. The hike in UH Hilo’s tuition drops from seven to four percent as a result of this action.

“Recognizing that making a college education accessible to the students and families of Hawai’i is both a priority for the university and in the best interest of our community, the Board of Regents has voted to limit the UH Hilo tuition increase for Hawai’i residents to only four percent,” says Zach Street, interim director of admissions at UH Hilo.

ʻImiloa Astronomy Center, an outreach center of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, launched MANU ʻImiloa, a mobile outreach program aimed at sharing ʻImiloa’s unique brand of culture-based science education across the island.

Beginning in the fall of 2015, MANU (Modern and Ancient ways of Navigating our Universe) will take ʻImiloa staff on the road with an interactive curriculum inspired by the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s epic Worldwide Voyage, and designed to explore the skills involved in non-instrument ocean navigation or wayfinding.

Along with curriculum, KŌLEA offers participating teachers specialized training, access to customized educational materials and traveling toolkits and opportunities to engage with crewmembers from the Worldwide Voyage.

The 2015–2016 KŌLEA program will be limited to a first cohort of 10 enthusiastic and passionate middle school teachers across Hawaiʻi Island. Selected teachers must complete program requirements and participate in an inaugural teacher workshop slated for October 5–7, 2015. Applications for the 10 places close Saturday, August 15th, and the selection committee decisions will be announced by September 1st.

Hilo area listeners can now tune into University Radio Hilo [URH] on terrestrial radio at the newly founded FM 101.1.

The station broadcast should have a five-mile range from campus.
Credit for the achievement goes to Kyle Douglas, URH radio engineer; Jake Galves, URH advisor; Sky Flores, executive chair of the 2014-15 Board of Media Broadcasting (BoMB); Theo Oneal, general manager of URH in 2014–15; Matt Groulx, executive chair of BoMB in 2015-16; and Brenda Burch, general manager of URH in 2015–16.
 Ellen Kusano, director of the Campus Center at UH Hilo also credits the URH staff, the DJs and all the volunteers who helped the team reach the FM goal.

According to URH radio engineer Kyle Douglas, the station is currently in a testing phase for the low power FM system. “We have gotten reports that our signal has been caught well beyond our initial estimates and right now we are broadcasting at 30 percent power of what our license will allow us,” he says.  “We are hoping to use it as a tool to help strengthen the connection between the university with the community-at-large, all while giving students a chance to learn about the broadcasting industry.”

Tune in to URH on the web at http://uhhradio.com or listen in at 101.1on your FM dial in Hilo.
