Singapore budget-airline “Scoot” is planning to fly to Hawaii. The planned service, with a stop in Osaka, Japan, is pending approval from the authorities in the United States. Should it receive the approval, the subsidiary of Singapore Airlines could launch its service by the end of the year.

Scoot’s current routes feature destinations in Asia-Pacific, Australia and India. It will also launch a maiden route to Europe in June, with flights to Athens.

Hawaiian Pidgin Emoji’s Available <img src=”image.gif” alt="hawaiianemjois“/>
If you like to pepper your text messages with a smiley face, dancing lady, red hearts or hand signal emoji’s you’ll love the new “Hawaiian kin” emoji’s!
Those well-versed in Hawaiian pidgin will now have the opportunity to share the dialect emoji-style, via Apple’s iMessage platform. The only drawback is you’ll only be able to (for now) share this via iMessage. If you send this to a friend with a Blackberry it won’t be received.
Six new “Pidginmoji” apps, launched by brothers Ka‘ohele Carlos and Kamalu Alameida, both Oahu North Shore natives, feature over 800 pidgin expressions using male and female emojis and voice bubbles.
Users can purchase three versions, male, female or voice bubble for 99 cents each. An animated version of each app is available for $1.99.  To get these emoji’s go to your App Store and search for “Pidginmoji”

Poipu Dairy Permits Revoked
On May 4 the Hawaii Dairy Farms got some bad news from Hawaii’s Environmental Courts Judge Randal Valenciano concerning their plans to build a Dairy in Poipu Beach. Location of this 557 acre Dairy was to be 2.5 miles from the Grand Hyatt.

Judge Valenciano revoked the Dairy’s permits and said a final Environmental Impact Study (EIS) will be required for any new permits. Furthermore the court found the action that the Hawaii Dairy Farms took in breaking ground on a wastewater treatment unit before the final Environmental Impact Study was reviewed and approved of by the State of Hawaii was not lawful. The reason being is an installation of a wastewater treatment unit triggers HRS Chapter 343 which requires a Environmental Impact Study that has been approved of.

For those of you that don’t know there are two diametrically opposing teams here; the Hawaii Dairy Farm who want the dairy and their opponents; local residents and The Friends Of Mahaulepu who do not.   This decision is not one that the Hawaii Dairy Farms is surprised at getting and what it means for them is this; they have to do an Environmental Impact Study, have it reviewed and approved before they can apply for permits to do anything. Many people, including The Friends of Mahaulepu, are hoping that this will be enough to have the dairy people go away and build someplace else. Opponents of the Dairy consider this decision a huge win and one that they have been fighting for some time for, they feel both vindicated and validated.

Kauai Syngenta Site Sold
An Iowa company is taking over the Hawaii Syngenta sites, including the location on Kauai’s Westside, but day-to-day activities will stay the same, according to company representatives. The purchase agreement between Hartung Brothers, Inc. and Syngenta was announced Thursday. The deal should close by the end of June for an undisclosed amount.

Syngenta’s Kauai location employs about 100 people.

Part of the agreement includes Syngenta contracting current Hawaii-based seed production activities from Hartung. According to the release, the purchase “ensures ongoing crop innovation will continue to be part of Hawaii agriculture, which plays an important role in food production for the U.S. and around the world.”
Activists who have been asking the state to regulate pesticide use by the agribusiness companies on the Westside are keeping an eye on the sale, hoping to see a change in practices.
“It would be refreshing if a company came in, grew something non-toxic and profitable, (so) that we could have jobs that are safe from continual pesticide exposure,” said Jeri Di Pietro, of Hawaii SEED.  Di Pietro said she hopes Hartung Brothers will use practices that remedies the soil.
