No Ke Kalaiaina (Political Economy)

Ua haawi mai ke Akua i mea e waiwai ai na kanaka a pau. Ua haawi mai oia i ka aina kahi e ulu ai ka ai. Ua haawi mai oia i ka laau, i mea e paa ai na hale, i mea hoi e pono ai na hana he nui loa.

Hulili Vol. 5 No. 1 2008

By: Shawn Malia Kanaiaupuni, Ph. D.

The intimate connection between Hawaiians and aina (land) is the focus of two articles this year. In a piece that weaves together scholarly research and personal moolelo (storytelling), cultural beliefs about land, language, and community reveal strong implications for understanding Hawaiian well-being. Likewise, the importance of cultivating a strong sense of place among students and their families is emphasized within Ike Aina, a curriculum grounded in experiential learning and indigenous literacy. This year is a mixture of joy and nostalgia personally, because it is my last year as editor as I turn the reins over to Brandon Ledward, who has been a diligent team member working to produce volumes four and five of this journal. Dr. Ledward ensures strong continuity for the journal, with his doctorate in cultural anthro- pology from the University of Hawaii and his solid background in qualitative and quantitative research methods as part of the Research and Evaluation division at Kamehameha. We welcome his continued leadership and voice, along with Matthew Corry and Debra Tang, who have been critical team members supporting thi...

Molokai: Future of a Hawaiian Island This vision statement was created by numerous groups of the Molokai community and largely based on work from the generations before us. There are too many contributors to list, but on page 52, there is a hui of opio and makua who are instrumental in carrying forward the vision of this document, and they may be contacted for further information. In light of longstanding challenges to our aina (land), cultural tradi- tions, and lifestyle, community members joined together to articulate a vision for the future of Molokai. The process was innovative yet organic, bringing together individuals from different generations and with ike (knowledge) from a wide range of sources. The emerging document describes a desired state for the island, where the question of development is secondary to the promise to malama (protect and nurture) natural and cultural resources. Utilizing a community- based, holistic approach, “Molokai: Future of a Hawaiian Island” identifies critical needs and outlines specific steps to achieve change and sustainability....

Hulili Vol. 1 No. 1 2004

By: Shawn Malia Kanaiaupuni, Ph. D.

Welina mai! Welcome to the inaugural issue of Hulili, a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal on Hawaiian well-being. The word hulili is defined as “ladder, bridge, as to scale a cliff or cross a gully” (Hawaiian Dictionary, Pukui & Elbert, 1986, p. 89). Our vision for Hulili is to create a multidisciplinary forum for current research that examines the nature, needs, and strengths of Hawaiians, their families, and their communities. We believe that through collaboration and critique, Hulili will foster new connections and shared insights and mobilize greater Hawaiian well-being. The seeds of this work were planted last year at Kamehameha Schools’ first annual research conference on the education and well-being of Hawaiians. The Policy Analysis & System Evaluation (PASE) department at Kamehameha Schools planned and hosted the three-day event that brought together researchers, educators, and other professionals from various fields dedicated to improving Hawaiian well-being. The result was a powerful exchange of current findings, recent data, and new challenges from areas including health, medicine, education, social work, e...

The Cosmo-Art Theorems and Axioms

By: Antonio Mercurio

Cosmo-Art is an artistic movement that is accessible to anyone who has the strength and courage necessary to detach from their Fetal I that they still carry within, and elevate themselves to the cosmic artistic dimension of the Adult I, which embraces the whole life of a human being […] A. Mercurio This book represents the culmination of the Author’s anthropological and cosmological thought. It is a synthesis expressed through poetic language, but it also offers guidelines for the Cosmo-Art Movement. This volume sets out the seven Theorems and the seven Axioms of Cosmo-Art that together represent the Author’s new cosmological viewpoint, and it offers many answers to the fundamental questions that Human Beings have regarding the meaning of Life. The book also offers an important chapter on the Principles of Prenatal Anthropology as well as one on the Rules for Nocturnal Navigation, which is a splendid guide for sailing on the seas of existence and journeying towards ‘Secondary Beauty...

A Critique of Piketty's "Capital in the Twenty-first Century"

By: Dr. Sam Vaknin

In his programmatic and data-laden tome, "Capital in the Twenty-first Century" (2014), Thomas Piketty makes several assertions, two of which merit a closer look: (1) That r (the return on capital) is, in the long-run always greater than g (the growth of the real economy), thus enriching the rich; and (2) that inherited wealth tends to create a "patrimonial" form of capitalism, akin to the aristocracy in the French and British ancient regimes. Putting aside the somewhat artificial and dubious distinction between the "real" and the financial economy, r and g are apples and oranges and cannot be compared. Economic growth (g) is not the return on the real economy in the same way that r is the return on capital and its assets. R is intended to compensate for a panoply of risks and is comparable to the wave function in Quantum Mechanics: it incorporates all the publicly and privately available information about future uncertainties and provides a distribution function of all plausible scenarios. Put simply: subject to political and market vicissitudes, capital can vanish overnight. Not so the real economy: it is always there, regardle...

Trabalho Imaterial: libertação do trabalhador ou degradação do trabalho?

By: Dímitre Sampaio Moita

O trabalho explora os significados do trabalho informacional. Partindo do estatuto conquistado pelo trabalho na sociedade salarial, como fator de identificação pessoal e de coesão social, são analisadas as transformações observadas no mercado laboral e na economia mundial. As metamorfoses são percebidas a partir do prisma da reestruturação produtiva e da consequente precarização laboral. A revolução das tecnologias da informação e comunicação é tratada a partir da convergência entre os campos da microeletrônica, da computação e das telecomunicações. A grande produtividade da indústria da informação e comunicação divide os analistas entre a tese do informacionalismo ou capitalismo cognitivo e a tese da degradação do trabalho informacional. O conceito de trabalho imaterial é analisado sob a perspectiva de ameaça à validade dos conceitos da economia política tradicional, uma vez que nesse contexto não é mais possível valorar unidades de produto a partir de unidades de tempo. O trabalho imaterial, vivo e colaborativo em sua definição, apontaria para a superação da degradação do trabalho e para o surgimento de uma economia da...

Native Hawaiian Data Book

By: Hawaii Board of Trustees

On behalf of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to present the 2006 edition of the “Native Hawaiian Data Book”, a comprehensive statistical profile of the current status of the Native Hawaiian community. This data is gathered and compiled to assist community organizations to develop and strengthen service programs and community action projects to effectively meet the needs of Native Hawaiians. Data and information are key components in protecting and perpetuating the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and ensuring the Native Hawaiian culture thrives for generations to come as the foundation of the emerging Native Hawaiian nation. The information in this 2006 edition of the “Native Hawaiian Data Book” was gathered from sources including: The Kamehameha Schools, Policy Analysis and System Evaluation (PASE); the State of Hawaii Departments of Health, Public Safety, Hawaiian Home Lands, Human Services, Business, Economic Development and Tourism; the University of Hawai and the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. This 2006 edition also includes a resource list for health,...

Within the last decade, the U.S. Census Bureau has continued to take great strides to ensure adequate representation of Native Hawaiian issues among their various data products. For the first time in history, individuals could select more than one race for Census 2000. This meant more accurate counts for Native Hawaiians, who could now be separated from the category, “Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander” (NHOPI) by being counted as Native Hawaiian alone or in combination with other races. According to the U.S. Census 2000 data, there are approximately 401,162 Native Hawaiians in Hawaii and on the continent. In the State of Hawaii alone, there are over 239,655 Native Hawaiians, representing 60% of the total population of Native Hawaiians in the United States. Population forecasts suggest that while the Native Hawaiian population continues to steadily increase, the population of Native Hawaiians in Hawaii is slowly decreasing due to the increasing cost of living and limited economic opportunities. Along with the U.S. Census Bureau, the State of Hawaii Department of Health also plays a crucial role in measuring the vital stati...

Being Happy : The 10 Most Successful Strategies, Volume 1

By: Martin Nagle

If you take a look at the world we live in, most people have a completely backwards approach to pursuing happiness. We’re generally raised with the idea: “If you work hard at something, you’ll be successful, and then you can be happy”. But when you think like that, you’ll notice that as soon as you reach a goal, another one will take it’s place. And then another. Like the horizon, our goals keep shifting and moving just out of reach. And with that, our happiness. Our brain actually works the other way around: By cultivating happiness, you’ll be more creative, feel more connected, and be more productive. So by first focusing on what makes us happy, we become much better at everything we do!...

"... And be aware of your conditioning and society's effect on your thinking. Try giving yourself some unconditional self-acceptance, give yourself a break from the inner critic by, paradoxically, not struggling with anything. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be some notion of a perfect person that we are never actually able to be ourselves and enjoy our life. And remember – it's not a rehearsal – this is the real thing. Each moment is a new choice to love it or resent it."...

Femme Fatale : An Examination of the Role of Women in Combat and the Policy Implications for Future American Military Operations

By: Kristal L. M. Alfonso

This paper reviews four case studies that demonstrate the variety of ways women have participated in modern armed conflict and explores whether current US laws and policies excluding women from combat remain valid or need to be amended. Each case study examines three principal facets of female participation in combat: context, motivations and inspirations, and the actual contributions made by these women in combat operations....

Migration: The COMPAS Anthology

By: Bridget Anderson, Editor; Michael Keith, Editor

‘Migration’ is a difficult word. It encompasses multiple interlinked practices, policies and relationships, and it touches people all over the world in myriad ways. This anthology is designed both as a teaching and research resource and as a provocation. Contributions range from personal reflections to succinct overviews, and include poetry and images, posing questions and sharing insights on the multifaceted phenomenon that we call ‘migration’, and linking it to wider patterns of social change....

"The arrogation of powers to keep people ‘in place’ – from historical regimes of serfdom, to contemporary measures to regulate movement, to modern city forms such as the hukou system in China – all define who is and who is not a migrant in relation to regional, national and municipal governance of scarce public goods and ideologies of nation or belonging."...

Agile Combat Support Doctrine and Logistics Officer Training : Do We Need an Integrated Logistics School for the Expeditionary Air and Space Force?

By: J. Reggie Hall

Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s Agile Combat Support Doctrine and Logistics Officer Training: Do We Need an Integrated Logistics School for the Expeditionary Air and Space Force? examines the evolution of USAF logistics doctrine, the linkage between doctrine, strategy, tactics, and training programs, and the corresponding application of logistics employment and sustainment functions in a deployed environment. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s diverse logistics officer training programs to determine if there is a deficiency in interdisciplinary logistics employment and sustainment training. He ascertains whether or not that training shortfall reveals a gap between USAF logistics doctrine and expeditionary air and space force combat strategy. His study also investigates the USAF transition to the air and space expeditionary force (AEF) operational employment concept as the force projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and space force and the reliance on ACS as the primary enabler to identify specific areas here the absence of integrated logistics training impacts or potentially degrades mission success....

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions, Compiler

This is a downloadable digital magazine with audio & video features. Some of the salient features include a free English teaching programme with Malayalam & English audio.

The most basic idea is that most Indian lan...
