Envisioning The Future And Sustaining A Legend At Sumida Farm
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin What do you do when you are suddenly tasked with taking over the family farm? Locals know it as the farm with the little grass shack next to Pearlridge. Sumida Farm , a 95-year-old watercress farm on Oʻahu, that most locals toured in elementary school, is bordered by the retail stores, restaurants and parking lots of Pearlridge Center on three sides and a partially finished Honolulu Rail Transit Project, that hovers above busy Kamehameha highway on elevated tracks, on the fourth. The contrast between bright green rows of watercress against a backdrop of a shuttered Sears building with trains shooting through the sky for intermittent testing looks like something straight out of Blade Runner. How has a farm in the center of a shopping mall sustained four generations? Emi and Kyle Suzuki, who took over in March 2020, are figuring that out now, because with each generation a new iteration of the farm is born. … [Read more...] about Envisioning The Future And Sustaining A Legend At Sumida Farm
OKC Thunder To Face Most Pivotal Road Trip Of Season
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin “The core of your team gets built on the road,” said Oklahoma City Thunder coach Mark Daigneault on Sunday evening before the team hit the road for a trip out west. To him, road trips are great for a developing young team and there are plenty of lessons to be learned. “I love playing on the road. It’s a great test,” said Daigneault. “It’s strips away everything except for your team. It’s just you. I actually think road games, wins and losses, build a lot of chemistry because it limits a lot of distractions.” While these games are great tests, they’re extremely difficult to win. In fact, only two teams in the entire Western Conference have a winning record on the road this season. Oklahoma City is currently 13-21 away from Paycom Center in the 2022-23 campaign and facing a pivotal a four-game road trip. Over the course of the next week, the Thunder will play the LA Clippers twice, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers … [Read more...] about OKC Thunder To Face Most Pivotal Road Trip Of Season
After Stanford, What’s Next For Haley Jones?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin While the 2022-23 season didn’t end the way Haley Jones envisioned it for Stanford — with a 54-49 loss to Mississippi that concluded Jones’ senior season in the second round of the NCAA Tournament — Jones’ multi-dimensional life plan means she’s just getting started on what’s on tap for 2023. “Yeah, my time at Stanford has been interesting,” Jones told reporters following the game Sunday. “I guess, you know, COVID, freshman year, that played into a lot of different things, and then the COVID season that's unheard of. I never expected that to be part of my college experience. “So then winning a National Championship, three Pac-12 Championships, 2 Pac-12 Tournament Championships; so I have a lot to be proud of for my Stanford career. It's hard to feel that way right now, but I know at some point that will hit and sink in. I'm happy with my time at Stanford and the relationships I've made that are going to carry on past my … [Read more...] about After Stanford, What’s Next For Haley Jones?
Prepaid College Savings Plan Under Fire In Maryland: Should You Be Worried?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Prepaid college savings plans have long been an alternative to a 529 plans when it comes to saving for college. What is a prepaid college tuition plan ? Generally speaking, these plans let parents lock in college tuition at today's prices with the goal of funding school ahead of time. The idea behind these plans is letting families purchase college units or credits with a lump sump payment, or through regular payments, at which point the plan administrator invests the money on their behalf. With the money stashed away and invested, the goal of these accounts is growing the underlying funds to keep up with rising tuition costs until the child reaches college age. At that point, the funds are transferred to the school to cover tuition costs and other eligible higher education expenses. While that all sounds good and well, something is going wrong in the prepaid college tuition industry — at least in the state of … [Read more...] about Prepaid College Savings Plan Under Fire In Maryland: Should You Be Worried?
Here Are The 14 States Moving To Prohibit Sexually Explicit Drag Shows For Minors
In March, Tennessee became the first state to bar sexually explicit drag shows from public places where minors may be exposed. Other red states such as Idaho, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas are following Tennessee’s lead, pushing for similar legislation against such performances. “Just as state legislatures have worked to protect children from harmful cross-sex hormones or experimental surgeries, they are also tackling the broader problem of activist educators and administrators attempting to influence young children and push the left’s radical gender ideology,” Jessica Anderson, Heritage Action executive director, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. After Tennessee became the first state to prohibit drag shows in places where children may be present, several red states are pushing for similar legislation. States including Idaho, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas are focused on passing legislation that would restrict or outlaw sexually explicit drag shows … [Read more...] about Here Are The 14 States Moving To Prohibit Sexually Explicit Drag Shows For Minors
From France To The U.S.: Pension Reforms And The Retirement Age Debate
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin French President Emmanuel Macron took a bold step last Friday by raising the legal retirement age in his country from 62 to 64, bypassing parliament and potentially setting his government up for a vote of no confidence. The unpopular pension reform, Macron says, is necessary to address the financial deficits caused by pandemic spending and the European energy crisis. With the U.S. watching closely, could France’s pension reform serve as a blueprint for future changes to Social Security? I don’t envy Macron for making this tough call. The people of France enjoy one of the most generous pension systems in the European Union (EU). According to 2020 data, France spent a jaw-dropping 14.7% of its GDP on pensions alone. However, the sustainability of this pension system is being threatened by demographic changes. The Western European country has one of the highest life expectancies in the world, and the expected years in … [Read more...] about From France To The U.S.: Pension Reforms And The Retirement Age Debate
