The interstellar object that was discovered last month with the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope atop Haleakalā on Maui, now has a name -- ʻOumuamua.

Welcome to Classical Pacific for Friday, November 17th, 2017. The holidays are looming large and pumpkin pies are already appearing in the HPR kitchen (but not for long.) Christmas goodies will soon follow! Today, we have music by Khachaturian, Joseph Haydn, E.J. Moeran, and the Love theme from "Romeo and Juliet," and the theme from "Zorba," performed brilliantly by André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra, and we'll also hear a piece by “Duplessy and the Violins of the World.” Led by French guitarist, Mattias Duplessy, these musicians use exotic Asian instruments that look quite unlike the violins of the western world. The result is magical, in my view, especially when the ensemble performs music from the western oeuvre, such as Ravel’s “Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte,” which we’ll hear today. The timeless nature of such works takes on an even richer texture which is firmly anchored in the earth while, in the same moment, soaring through crystal blue skies. The pain and the h..
It’s been two and a half years since Hawai‘i’s legislature approved a dispensary program for medical marijuana, and about four months since the first dispensary opened its doors.

When you've got to go, you've got to go. Or at least that's what Ugandan MP Ibrahim Abiriga insisted after he went for a "short call" — a Ugandan slang term for relieving one's self — on a wall near the country's finance ministry in the capital, Kampala, in broad daylight. Someone took photos of him caught in the act. The images went viral on social media, sparking outrage, jokes and spawning a new term for urinating among locals — " abirigating ." The case has thrust the issue of access to public toilets into the spotlight in Uganda. But it's definitely an issue that affects just about every city. If you take a deep inhale on a hot day, you'll understand. "The obnoxious smell lingers, causing disgust and depleting the pride of [a city's] people," says Jack Sim, founder of the World Toilet Organization , a global nonprofit that is dedicated to better toilets for all. They call him "Mr. Toilet." "Having no or insufficient access to toilets is a se..

The latest statistics on child labor are in — and they're not encouraging. An estimated 152 million children around the globe are doing work that prevents them from getting an education or that's harmful to their health. That's almost 1 in 10 children worldwide. The figures, which cover 2016, were released this week in a report by the United Nation's International Labour Organization. Here are eight more takeaways: This isn't about a kid doing a few chores on the family farm after school. It's worth noting that these statistics only cover children who are doing work that is hazardous to their health or that prevents them from attending school full-time because of the hours involved or the nature of the job. So it does not include, for instance, 12- to 14-year-olds doing non-hazardous, "light" work for fewer than 14 hours a week. There's been progress on this issue, but it's slowing. Two years ago the world's leaders pledged to end child labo..
