Save money at the pump: tips for better gas mileage

Remember when gas was $1.85 a gallon? Believe it or not, it wasn’t that long ago. Over the last few years, gas prices have steadily risen for a variety of reasons. The war in the Middle East, increased demand for oil in the United States and developing countries such as China and India, and storms that have severely damaged oil refineries are all contributing factors to the price increase.

Sailing in Denmark:
Around the island of Fyn in 14 days

Hi-tech may be too much of a good thing

Technology. It is developed with the intent of making our lives better, from warming up our frozen lasagna in just a minute to letting us reach far away relatives with a simple, inexpensive phone call. It’s quick, convenient, and reliable. It sure sounds perfect, right? For many of us, of course, it is. (After all, we live in an age where people rather take the elevator than the stairs.) We love it, we need it, we depend on it. Sadly, we depend on it just a little too much, and we all know “Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.” Yes, too much technology can indeed be bad, too.

Rough start for HPU volleyball team

A 0-2 conference season start is not the beginning that the HPU women’s volleyball team hoped for. After dropping their first two conference games Sept. 21 and 22, the Lady Sea Warriors (5-8 overall) hoped to learn from their mistakes and rebound against Brigham Young University-Hawai‘i and Chaminade on Sept. 28 and 29., before beginning their week-long road trip to Utah and Arizona.
