Reports from HPR's General Assignment reporter, Molly Solomon
According to the EPA, food waste is now the biggest contributor to our country’s landfills. Every year, as much as 40% of our food ends up in the trash. But, as HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, a local project is taking steps to ensure that excess produce gets to the people who need it the most.
Any time a land developer in Hawaii digs below the surface, it’s necessary to complete a full archaeological inventory survey. The law insures protection and preservation of cultural and historical sites. But a bill making its way through the legislature could change the way future construction projects move forward. HPR’s Molly Solomon reports.
March turned out to be another month of growth for tourism in the state. The Hawaii Tourism Authority says overall visitor arrivals were up 7.6% compared to a year earlier, while visitor spending was up 7.8%. The number of tourists coming from Japan was also up—by a little more than four percent.
It’s no secret that Hawaii loves food. And an upcoming culinary event at the Japanese Cultural Center explores some of the history behind some island favorites. HPR’s Molly Solomon spoke with a local food author who takes a look at the roots of Hawaii cuisine.
College seniors are beginning to prepare for next month’s graduation --- and for one UH medical student, the event holds a particularly special meaning. HPR’s Molly Solomon caught up with a senior at the John A. Burns School of Medicine whose long journey to becoming a doctor is finally within reach.
