Bookmarks for June 7th

When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on June 7th:

  • What to do in Hawaii? Get up early and stand in line for a Palm Pre: I was out in Hawaii crawling around a ship for the last week and was scheduled to fly home on Saturday at noon. What else was a mobile enthusiast to do other than get to the largest Sprint store in Honolulu and get in line early.
  • UH hired to find best routes for interisland power cables: A $1.5 million survey of the ocean floor will be conducted to determine the best routes for undersea cables to deliver power from windfarms on Lanai and Molokai to other islands. The state has hired the University of Hawaii’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology to do the survey.
  • Hawaii students bring home prize for science: Two teams from St. Andrew’s Priory recently returned from the International Science and Engineering Fair in Reno, Nevada. One of them brought home a special prize.
  • Hawaii cancer researcher gets national award: Dana-Lynn Koomoa, a junior researcher at the Cancer Research Center of Hawai’i, is one of 11 young scientists in the nation who were selected to receive a 2009 Young Investigator Award from the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
  • Scientists eye glowing volcano crater in Hawaii: The summit of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano is glowing brightly as molten lava swirls 300 feet below its crater’s floor, bubbling near the surface after years of spewing from the volcano’s side. The expanding vent of Halemaumau crater helps confirm scientists’ belief that the lava is close to the surface of the summit.
  • Washington man sailing to Hawaii after reacquiring boat: A Hat Island, Wash., man plans to sail the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii in the same Malaysian-built, 29-foot wooden sailboat that he took from Australia to Washington state nearly three decades ago.
  • High-tech teaching tool taking education to the next level: Eric Seitman distributes Prometheum in Hawaii. He says the smart board, which intrgrates high resolution graphics, video and live internet feeds keeps the students engaged and excited to learn.
