Scientists exploring the Marianas Trench returned to Hawaii with a few surprising discoveries.  An international team onboard the Falkor research vessel used deep sea vehicles to dive more than 34,000 feet. They studied how life adapts to ocean depths and the history of volcanic activity.

The expedition was highlighted by the discovery of a new Snail fish, a ghostlike fish with large “wings” and a long eel-like tail that glided in front of their cameras. 

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both Southern California and Honolulu. In college he started DJing around Honolulu, playing Jazz and Bossa Nova sets at various lounges and clubs under the name dj mr.nick. He started to incorporate Downtempo, House and Breaks into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy while steering free of mainstream clichés.
