Deal

Jen had a tire blow out on the H-2 yesterday, coming home with Zac and Alex. Fortunately, a stranger soon stopped to help… even though Jen just happened to come to a stop right next to some roadkill. When I got there, he had already finished putting on Jen’s spare. I asked if I could […]

Dwindling Kids?

March 26th, 2005 by Ryan Ozawa · 2 Comments · Miscellaneous

A recent article in the New York Times calls attention to an odd trend: the low number of young families in the nation’s more “vibrant,” fast-growing neighborhoods. San Francisco, where the median house price is now about $700,000, had the lowest percentage of people under 18 of any large city in the nation, 14.5 percent, […]

Fat Chance

We have nearly fifty schools struggling to meet federal guidelines. Hawaii teachers may be on the verge of a mass exodus. Substitute teachers are at once relied upon yet stymied. One lawmaker’s bright idea? Go after overweight teachers, because skinny teachers will lead to skinny students. Yeah, when everyone’s worried about keeping qualified teachers in […]

Too many feeds! A most thoughtful blogger recently asked — perhaps just to be polite — where she might find my “blog feed” so she could catch my updates in a news aggregator. It occurred to me, however, that I didn’t know if she meant this weblog (usually geek stuff like this or links to other sites), […]

Worst Case

U.S. Report Lists Possibilities for Terrorist Attacks and Likely Toll, reports the New York Times, which notes: “The document, known simply as the National Planning Scenarios, reads more like a doomsday plan, offering estimates of the probable deaths and economic damage caused by each type of attack. The department did not intend to release the […]

Kid Clips

March 9th, 2005 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

For those tolerant of such things, I figured I’d mention that I’ve added three sound clips to Zac’s website (two from 2003 that I’d forgotten about), and two videos to Alex’s site (one of which you may have seen in IMR, the other demonstrating my youngest son’s apparent fondness for Mililani gecko calls). Okay, yeah, […]

After this, I wanted to form the Hawaii Association of Podcasters (named in mock tribute to these guys). But in order to be a member, I’d have to, you know, podcast something. Welp. There goes the neighborhood.
