"ALOHA Connects" tag:www.techhui.com,2011-10-01:1702911:Video:97828 2011-10-01T04:35:16.008Z Rubén Peña http://www.techhui.com/profile/RubenPena This video shares the special "ALOHA" spirit of Hawaiʻi in a way that has rarely been done before. Produced by Pono Shim and Don Mapes for non-profit Enterprise Honolulu, the video is to promote the islands as a special place of spirit and innovation. The video is based on the teaching of Aunty Pilahi Paki who was called the keeper of Hawaiʻiʻs secrets. Although she passed away in 1985 she prophesied that the world would come to Hawaiʻi in the 21st century to find the answer to world peace.… This video shares the special "ALOHA" spirit of Hawaiʻi in a way that has rarely been done before.

Although she passed away in 1985 she prophesied that the world would come to Hawaiʻi in the 21st century to find the answer to world peace. That answer...ALOHA.<br /> <br /> "ALOHA Connects" is a collaborative project designed to connect Hawai'i businesses with their counterparts in the APEC member economies resulting in increased trade, business expansion, capital investment, economic stimulation, technological innovation and job creation.<br /> <br /> To "‎ALOHA Connects", many Mahalos for sharing your gift of ALOHA with us all in this uniquely exquisite video:<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.techhui.com/video/aloha-connects">http://www.techhui.com/video/aloha-connects</a><br /> <br /> Produced with the cooperation of numerous organizations who donated footage, the video invites others to come to our islands to partner to find solutions to the worldʻs problems.<br /> <br /> TechHuian's and all Friends, we hope you will take time to view this powerful video story of the Spirit of ALOHA and the technological innovations of the contributions of the many cultures and races that make up Hawai'i, and once you're done, share it with fellow TechHuian's, with your own Friends and with Family.

"The Story of Electronics: Why ''Designed for the Dump'' is Toxic for People and the Planet" tag:www.techhui.com,2011-04-06:1702911:Video:78721 2011-04-06T08:44:32.409Z Rubén Peña http://www.techhui.com/profile/RubenPena <a href="http://www.techhui.com/video/the-story-of-electronics-why"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/327473196?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>"The Story of Stuff Project" series of Team video productions is a Non-Profit Activism Movement designed to draw the attention to many the Environmental, Green, and Sustainability issues surrounding our modern-day "Planned Obsolescence" cycle of Consumer Goods Manufacturing, Consumption, and Disposal.<br></br> <br></br> Team:<br></br> +Ms. Annie Leonard<br></br> +Free Range Studios (… <a href="http://www.techhui.com/video/the-story-of-electronics-why"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/327473196?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />"The Story of Stuff Project" series of Team video productions is a Non-Profit Activism Movement designed to draw the attention to many the Environmental, Green, and Sustainability issues surrounding our modern-day "Planned Obsolescence" cycle of Consumer Goods Manufacturing, Consumption, and Disposal.<br /> <br /> Team:<br /> +Ms. Annie Leonard<br /> +Free Range Studios (<a href="http://www.freerange.com">www.freerange.com</a>)<br /> +Electronics Takeback Coalition (<a href="http://www.electronicstakeback.com">www.electronicstakeback.com</a>)<br /> +Taiwan Watch Institute (<a href="http://www.taiwanwatch.org.tw">www.taiwanwatch.org.tw</a>)<br /> +Taiwan Association of Translation &amp; Interpretation (<a href="http://www.tati.org.tw">www.tati.org.tw</a> providing Chinese/Taiwanese subtitles)<br /> <br /> New cell phones last no more than a year, then we dispose of them and go off to buy yet another of the latest electronics gadget yet again? Are you really anxious to grab latest model, or is it because your phone has failed prematurely yet again -- being much more expensive to repair than buying a new one? No matter what consumer electronics products we apply this vicious cycle of consumption to, we are being deceived and forced towards consuming products that are designed to deliberately fail as part of the product/process/consumption/disposal life cycle -- and to get consumers to continuously sustain this vicious cycle of consumption, to maintain the profit income of an endless supply of manufacturers (they themselves poisoning their own workers). Today many consumer products are designed as "Planned Obsolescence", that are intentionally designed to be neither durable nor tolerant to repair, and difficult to upgrade. In addition from time to time the launch of newly introduced latest gadgets with the "appearance" of better functionality are only slightly better with the newer models, so we naively chase the “latest and greatest popular fad” product just introduced, perpetuating the vicious Product Consumption cycle even further.<br /> <br /> In “The Story of Electronics: Why ‘‘Designed for the Dump’’ is Toxic for People and the Planet”, Ms. Annie Leonard carefully looks to explore this “deliberately designed products to throw away cycle”, respectively starting from extraction to production to consumption to waste and what are all the problems that arise. If we purchase the latest new "iPhone", "iPod", "iPad" after using and disposing of them, then a new set of problems is created since we don’t want large land fills and dumps here at home in the USA, we export our unwanted garbage from these disposable consumer products to China, India, Africa and even in Taiwan, where we dump on them the threat of dangerous pollution caused by our toxic products (while poisoning their people and children as well).<br /> <br /> Listen to Ms. Annie Leonard, and join her in action!

This is one more piece of compelling scientific evidence that Human activity and the subsequent effect of Global Warming is adversely impacting our Global Ecology and plant food supply.<br /> <br /> "Become Empowered, Become Informed" .....<br /> <br /> The past decade is the warmest on record since instrumental measurements began in the 1880s. Previous research suggested that in the '80s and '90s, warmer global temperatures and higher levels of precipitation -- factors associated with climate change - were generally good for plant productivity. An updated analysis published this week in Science indicates that as temperatures have continued to rise, the benefits to plants are now overwhelmed by longer and more frequent droughts. High-resolution data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS, indicate a net decrease in NPP from 2000-2009, as compared to the previous two decades.<br /> <br /> Like NASA videos?
