The University of Hawaii has launched a new mobile app aimed at keeping students safer on campus.  The app is being called "The Manoa Guardian" and allows students to set a timer that notifies a designated contact person or campus security if the user doesn’t check in, or cancel the timer.  Students can also report incidents on campus, alerting security to the time and location of the witness by allowing campus security to respond using the senders GPS location.  Sarah Rice is the Community Programs Manager for the Department of Public Safety for the University of Hawaii at Manoa. 

The Rave app is available from iPhone and Android markets to anyone. However the Manoa Guardian features are only available to those who have an email registered through the UH System.

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.
