Ethnobotany of the Ahupua`a describes the plant species introduced by the first Polynesian settlers. It explains how they used their plants to maintain their lifestyles and how they used their skills to manage their "`aina" (land). Most of the plants introduced were those species that provided for their basic survival necessities: food plants, fiber plants, medicinal and other plants of economic values.

Hawai'i Weather Patterns examines wind and weather related to the movement and strength of air pressure systems. As climate rolls north and south with the seasons, Hawai'i experiences a range of tropical, subtropical, and midlatitude weather patterns, the most common of which are described in this web site.

The Hawaii Nisei Story tells the stories of Hawaii born Nisei veterans of World War II. These are the stories of the Varsity Victory Volunteers, the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the Military Intelligence Service and the 1399th Englineering Construction Battalion. For a different view, the stories of the wives of the Nisei vets will also be included. 30 stories will be published by July 2007.

Roads of Oku: Travels in Japan describes a series of road trips in Japan begun in spring 2004. The journeys went as far north as Wakkanai, on Hokkaido, and as far south as Kagoshima, in Kyushu, through every prefecture in between, through the four seasons, into Oku, the rural heartlands, logging over 15,000 miles. Each of the narratives are illustrated with photos from the trips.

The Taiwan Cross-Strait Directory examines Taiwan-PRC relations in light of five themes -- political history, historical precedents, military affairs, trade and investment, and international organizations. Brief summaries and annotated links in the Cross-Strait Directory connect the user to online indicators of domestic and international sources of conflict and conflict resolution in Taipei-Beijing relations.

Traditions of O'ahu presents stories of this island before high-rises, freeways and hotels, before sugar plantations and pineapple fields, before churches and the Bible. The stories tell an ancient history of the island and of ancestors who created a society that valued and nurtured all forms of life and that bonded closely with the 'aina, or life-giving land.
