Work outdoors, save endangered Hawaiian waterbirds
Volunteer with the Hawai‘i Nature Center

Hawai‘i’s ‘aina—its land and water and forest systems—gives life to our island community, and the Hawai‘i Nature Center provides Hawai‘i’s people an opportunity to give back to the aina by volunteering. [More]


Help to prevent Hawaiian waterbirds such as the the nene, the world’s rarest goose and Hawai‘i’s state bird, from extinction.

How to help: Ways to give back

Help, assistance, aid: these are things we all need from time to time. Many of us can go somewhere for help—family, friends, church, even school, here at HPU—but lots of people in our community have no place to go. They are the elderly, the very young, even people our age. They live amongst us, and sometimes we don’t even know that they are in need. [More]

Chinatown ‘Bright Ideas’ selected

Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced, in July, the winners of a competition for “Bright Ideas” for the development of Chinatown and the emerging downtown Arts District. [More]


One of the winning proposals was submitted by HPU adjunct faculty member Anthony Chang, who proposed creation of a night market at Smith-Beretania Neighborhood Park during First Fridays. Chang teaches a class in Labor Relations for the College of Communication.

Everyday (cheap) remedies

Forwarded by Joanne Farmer

• Need a headache remedy? Drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately, without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional “pain relievers.”

• Get burned? Colgate toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns.

• Stuffed up? Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing a couple of Altoids peppermints. They’ll clear up your blocked sinuses.

• Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix one tablespoon of horseradish in one cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil, for instant relief for aching muscles.

• Skin blemishes? Try a little honey. Seriously. Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

• Bothered by a boil? Cover it with a compress of Hunt’s tomato paste. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

• Easy eyeglass protection? To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of nail polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.

• Need to remove a splinter? pour a drop of Elmer’s Glue-All over it, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.
