• Hawaii highest homeless population per capita

    (9 Nov 2015) Waikiki is known for its surf culture, luxury resorts and beautiful beaches. But on another part of the island, along a remote coastline, is a place few tourists ever see: a homeless encampment with hundreds of occupants. Homelessness in Hawaii has grown in recent years, leaving the state with 487 homeless per 100,000 people, the nation's highest rate per capita, above New York and Nevada, according to federal statistics. Since 2010, the rise has come even as the national rate has fallen during the economic recovery. The increase - driven by years of rising costs in the island chain, low wages and limited land - thrust the image of people sleeping on beaches alongside the state's famed one of a relaxing tropical paradise. Officials have tried to solve the problem. They...

    https://www.expedia.com/Honolulu.d1488.Destination-Travel-Guides Welcome to Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii. Stationed on the island of Oahu, Honolulu is ready to show you surf and sun like you’ve never seen before. Whether you’re here to live the life of a beach bum or want to explore the city’s lush tropical surroundings, you’ll find everything you’re looking for on your Honolulu tour. Hawaii had a pretty explosive inception—Diamond Head Crater, also called Leahi, started life as an active volcano. Don’t worry; it’s since gone dormant, which means you can climb to the rim and take in a truly brilliant view of the coast. Head back down to the water and go paddleboarding or swimming; “Honolulu” means “sheltered bay,” and the beachfront here lives up to its name: It’s calm and sheltered y...

  • Who Would Ride a Train in Honolulu?.mov

    http://www.honolulutraffic.com The city claims that more than 60% of Oahu residents, some 600,000 people, live along the rail route, but in reality less than 6% of Oahu's population resides within walking distance of the proposed train stations. Such misleading inflated numbers from our city government are part of their ongoing propaganda campaign, which has distorted most aspects of the rail system in their attempt to sell it to the public with rosy projections. They would like you to think the rail is very accessible and useful, but it is not. For a heavy rail transit system to be successful and attract riders, it needs to have many people living near the stations in medium and high density apartments so they can walk to the stations.

(9 Nov 2015) Waikiki is known for its surf culture, luxury resorts and beautiful beaches. But on another part of the island, along a remote coastline, is a place few tourists ever see: a homeless encampment with hundreds of occupants. Homelessness in Hawaii has grown in recent years, leaving the state with 487 homeless per 100,000 people, the nation's highest rate per capita, above New York and Nevada, according to federal statistics. Since 2010, the rise has come even as the national rate has fallen during the economic recovery. The increase - driven by years of rising costs in the island chain, low wages and limited land - thrust the image of people sleeping on beaches alongside the state's famed one of a relaxing tropical paradise. Officials have tried to solve the problem. They've offered homeless services, banned sitting and lying on Waikiki's sidewalks, and proposed using shipping containers as temporary housing. Governor David Ige's declaration of a state of emergency on homelessness in October underscored the depth of the crisis: While there are shelters and programmes to help the homeless, there are far fewer empty beds than are needed - about 550 on any given night on Oahu, where an estimated 4,900 of the 7,620 homeless people live, according to service providers. The state needs 27,000 affordable rental units by 2020, but lawmakers set aside enough money for 800 units this year. Maintaining the existing public housing could cost 800 (m) million US dollars over the next decade, according to state estimates. The state's population of unsheltered families ballooned 46 percent from 2014 to 2015, according to Scott Morishige, state coordinator on homelessness. A survey by service providers in August of Kaneso's encampment found that 42 percent of the nearly 300 people were families. Tracy Martin is a homeless father of a four-year-old. "Hawaii is paradise," he said, "but it's not for the locals anymore. It's for the tourists." Hawaii lawmakers say the state faces unique challenges in dealing with the homelessness problem, including high housing costs and low wages. About 40 percent of the homeless people in Hawaii do have jobs. The city tried to create a temporary safe zone in 2006 where the homeless could camp legally, but complaints ensued, so it ended up closing the park every night. Many of the homeless moved into hotel garages and walkways near Waikiki Beach. Then the city banned sitting and lying down on sidewalks, a move backed by the Hyatt Regency, Hilton Worldwide and other major resorts, which generate much of Waikiki's 6.8 (b) billion US dollars in annual tourism revenue, nearly half of all visitor spending in Hawaii. The hotels saw fewer homeless people, who then moved into other neighborhoods, prompting more complaints. Honolulu spends 15,000 US dollars a week to sweep away the camps. During the sweeps, families lost possessions like the wood they use to build their structures, found furniture, and clothes. Some have filed a lawsuit against the raids. Honolulu officials have set aside at least 16.8 (m) million US dollars for services and to secure apartments for homeless people in 2015, including plans to develop units out of shipping containers to temporarily house transients on Sand Island and the Waianae Coast. City officials also are backing at least 32 (m) million US dollars in bonds to finance other housing for homeless people.

Whether you’re here to live the life of a beach bum or want to explore the city’s lush tropical surroundings, you’ll find everything you’re looking for on your Honolulu tour. Hawaii had a pretty explosive inception—Diamond Head Crater, also called Leahi, started life as an active volcano.

Head back down to the water and go paddleboarding or swimming; “Honolulu” means “sheltered bay,” and the beachfront here lives up to its name: It’s calm and sheltered year-round. Honolulu sightseeing must include a day at Pearl Harbor. While there, you can wander the decks of the USS Missouri, explore the confines of the USS Bowfin, and observe a moment of silence at the USS Arizona Memorial. Head downtown to take in some of Honolulu’s storied history. The statue of King Kamehameha stands guard over the city itself, and you can check out the American Florentine architecture of Iolani Palace. While you’re there, try a Japanese fusion dish or sample from the numerous other eateries lining the city. Stick around as evening falls and you’ll see hula dancers and a breathtaking sunset.

http://www.honolulutraffic.com The city claims that more than 60% of Oahu residents, some 600,000 people, live along the rail route, but in reality less than 6% of Oahu's population resides within walking distance of the proposed train stations. Such misleading inflated numbers from our city government are part of their ongoing propaganda campaign, which has distorted most aspects of the rail system in their attempt to sell it to the public with rosy projections. They would like you to think the rail is very accessible and useful, but it is not. For a heavy rail transit system to be successful and attract riders, it needs to have many people living near the stations in medium and high density apartments so they can walk to the stations. However when we count the current population in walking distance, half-mile radius from the proposed stations, we find less than 60,000 people (not counting those people currently living downtown who are not likely users of the train). Only 7% of them can be expected to use the rail system (4,200 people), and yet the city is projecting about 100,000 daily trips. Where are these riders going to come from? Examining the rail route, we see the first three proposed stations in Kapolei are in the middle of empty fields -- nobody living there. Of course the city assumes there will be a lot of future housing constructed in these farm fields, which is questionable at best, and even if built the plans call for typical low-density suburban sprawl, about 10 housing units per acre, which is the basic housing pattern of Oahu and a prime reason why rail would fail. Waipahu would have two stations, each with about 10,000 people currently residing within walking distance (1/2 mile) primarily in low density single-family homes. The next station, at Leeward Community College, has nobody living within a half-mile of campus. Pearl City and Aiea's stations each have 5,000 people living nearby, while at Aloha Stadium there are just over 3000 residents in low-rise apartments and houses. Rail's next three stations have no residents nearby -- Pearl Harbor (no civilians), airport and Lagoon Drive. The next three proposed stations in town are Middle Street, Kalihi and Kapalama with total nearby population of 14,000 in a mixed district of commercial, light industrial, single-family houses and walk-up apartments. The final six stations are in the heart of urban Honolulu, at Iwilei, Chinatown, downtown, Civic Center, Kaka'ako and Ala Moana. While there are thousands of people living in this urban core, it is unlikely they are going to be taking the train because they walk to work. Therefore, these residents are not included in our tally of residents near train stations. Because of the lack of residents near stations, the city is planning that Leeward commuters will ride a bus to the train, but there are many obstacles to that scenario. Just imagine how many individual segments such a daily round-trip would involve: 1. Walk from your home to the bus stop. 2. Wait for the bus. 3. Ride the bus to the train station. 4. Walk to the train. 5. Wait for the train. 6. Ride the train. 7. Walk from train to work. Now do everything in reverse to get home. Fourteen round-trip segments involving a lot of walking, waiting and transferring. If you have to take a bus from the end station to your workplace, add several more segments. Not many people will be willing to make such a complicated journey. This analysis proves that very few people would use rail, bankrupting the system and leaving us with horribly increased traffic congestion on our roads.

Many residents have been unable to reach loved ones still missing in Japan's devastated areas. (March 13) -------------------------------------- [Location: Honolulu - March 13, 2011] [Source: AP] [VO: Japanese dancers perform] [VOICE-OVER] IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF JAPANESE CONTRIBUTION TO HAWAIIAN CULTURE... [NATS: Japanese music] ...BUT IT TURNED INTO AN OCCASION TO COMFORT ONE ANOTHER AND A FUNDRAISING EFFORT TO HELP THE VICTIMS OF THE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI IN JAPAN. [SOT/Sadie Watanabe, Japanese American] ("It's sad because there are children not able to find their parents and parents not able to find their children. I wouldn't want to be in that situation.") MORE THAN A QUARTER OF HAWAII'S POPULATION HAS JAPANESE ROOTS AND MANY HERE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO REACH LOVED ONES BACK IN JAPAN AFTER TWO DAYS OF FRUSTRATING ATTEMPTS. [SOT/Roy Tominaga, Japanese American] ("The phones were busy all the time and there was no way to connect. Then we tried email. Sent it out and it would come right back and said the lines were distorted and not able to connect." MOST OF THE FESTIVAL VOLUNTEERS ARE JAPANESE COLLEGE STUDENTS STUDYING IN HAWAII AND SOME HAVE FRIENDS STILL MISSING BACK HOME. THIS STUDENT HEARD FROM HIS FRIEND WHO LIVED ALONG JAPAN'S COAST RIGHT AFTER THE QUAKE HIT...BUT NOT AFTER THE TSUNAMI. [SOT/Ryu Akiyama, Japanese Student] ("That was two days ago and I haven't talked to him since so I don't know what happened to him. His family is worried about him too.") [SOT/Haven Daley, Associated Press] ("The festival was supposed to end with a big fireworks display but organizers decided to cancel that part of the celebration out of respect for the victims in Japan.
