Richard is an Associate Zoologist, Dive Safety Officer, and Database Coordinator for the Bernice P. Bishop Museum in Honolulu. His primary research interest is to explore and document the "Twilight Zone" (coral-reef habitat at depths of 30-150 meters), with particular emphasis on the discovery of new species of fishes and other organisms. The pursuit of this endeavor has required Richard to help design and develop new technology and techniques to allow safe access to these depths. Richard spoke at TED2004 and has exciting updates to share.
Bobby Ingano, a master of Hawaiian lap steel guitar, played with his band at our local library here in Honolulu. People from all over the island came out for this free, "backyard-style" show celebrating National Library Week. Friends of the band, old and young, were invited to come out of the audience take a turn singing or dancing a hula with the band. MAHALO to the band for such a warm, friendly and joyous evening, sharing your music and humor with us!

Reading is cool! These three youngsters from the Kalihi-Palama neighborhood think so. A Palama Settlement staffer shares one of the books from the new library that's under construction with the help of the Rotary Club of Honolulu. The kids said they'd be back for more.
How many Rotarians does it take to build a library? This weekend, 48 members of the Rotary Club of Honolulu built bookshelves and sorted thousands of books for a new library at Palama Settlement on Oahu. Lending a hand was architect Sid Snyder (center), a member of the Vladimir Ossipoff firm that designed the main buildings on the historic Palama campus. Flanking him are: ( from left) Lynn Kenny, Jerry and Cheri Rauschorst, Dave Bellino, (Sid), Dan Bent and Larry Robles.
