Why wear makeup at the beach? By choosing the right beauty products, it is possible to protect skin while simultaneously enhancing beauty.  Many people would think of eye shadow and lipstick but it is not quite the products I would recommend. Summer is coming up and it’s time to share with everyone tips and tricks on summer makeup to the beach!

I interviewed makeup artist, Bobbie Brown, as to what makeup you could wear at the beach. Bobbie Brown explains, “it may seem extreme to wear makeup to the beach but it is good to take the risk to look good and take care of your skin.” Bobbie Brown has a 2011 Makeup collection mainly for the beach. Go to www.bobbiebrown.com to check out the products for summer.

First of all, sunscreen is self-explanatory but another option is using a tinted moisturizer. It is recommended to use tinted moisturizers with an SPF factor above 15 if necessary. I recommend Bobbie Brown Tinted Moisturizer. Foundation is a product that should be put aside for the beach. If you go into the water, it will become blotchy and eventually come off. Foundation is basically a shield between your skin and the sun and you are not able to get any sun on your face. You will end up with a white face and a tan body.

If you were to go into the water, the products you have on your face will obviously come off. But if you were not to go into the water, this is something that could be on your list. Bronzer will give a great effect of being tanner and having a slimmer face. I recommend Rimmel Sun Shimmer because it comes in several shades. I have a personal trick to share with everyone of applying mascara. Using clear mascara is the best option. It will make eyelashes fuller and have volume. During the day, you won’t end up with “raccoon eyes”.  Lastly, a touch of gloss always makes a difference!

 

Academics – Students not doing enough? or Schoolds doing too much? April 7, 2011

Students not doing enough? Or Schools doing too much?

Most students are eager to learn and want to succeed in school. Though lack of their attention towards homework is decreasing every year. while some students are claiming that there is too much homework given.

Board members of the Public Schools System and even principles of private schools have been debating and speculating this topic. A High School Principle asks, “Do our students lack the self-motivation to handle assignments at home or is there too much homework in general?

These are the questions that are being thrown around within the Education Systems daily.

“We’re all human,” a student comments. “We can’t help it if we slack off sometimes and forget to do things.”

Another student replies saying “It’s  just distractions. Things that pull us away from our academic needs. There aren’t enough hours in the day.”

A number of studies have shown that students who participate in class have a 40% chance of getting an honest passing grade.

Though the other 60% that do participate don’t get the grade because of their lack of attention towards homework.

“There’s no one to tell you to do it. I can’t just take my teacher home to tell me to do my homework. No one is there to say ‘ You need to know this’, or, ‘Do it and finish it.’ ” A student debates on the situation.

Commitments they have made somewhere else is their main focus outside of school. Sports, Clubs, volunteer work, part-time jobs, and even religious activities keep them active. ” These things aren’t bad but it has students’ grades dropping.” a concerned teacher explains.

With this thought in mind some schools are believing differently. A Vice Principle sits in during a high school class and listens to what is being  taught. She understands it easily enough, but is astonished at the amount of homework that is given.

Schools are starting to believe that teachers are giving students too much homework. Certain members of the schools faculty are noticing that a high school student has too much to accomplish in one night. Telling teachers that they should be giving less homework. These statements have already been put it into action.

An alternative to this problemwould be giving into giving  less homework to students .  will be more engaged within class rooms. Many even feel more like they can achieve more with others around them doing the same work.

UN representative vote to send aid to Libya

The global community finally promised to help civil-war-torn Libya. By attacking Qaddafi foces via an aerial bombardment over the weekend, UN forces pressured the Libyan government to halt attacks on its citizens.  The genocide of Libyan dissidents in Benghazi has been evaded, for now.  But we as global citizens need to do more for our neighbors in trouble.

For the next several days, the multinational force must continue to attack the military infrastructure of Colonel Qaddafi. They can no longer negotiate with a dictator that murders his citizens in cold-blood.

Although this situation is getting better, we should keep striving to improve the conditions in Libya. The multinational force must pay attention to extent of the permissions they received from the United Nations. We need to help the Libyan people while causing a minimum of collateral damage.

in addition to military aid, the people of Libya could also use medical emergency supplies. The Red Cross is heading up a blood drive and accepting donations of blanket, clothes, money, and non-perishable food.

Non-profit agencies from the around the world are also helping the cause. get involved at your local level. Donate today. with all of us chipping in, we hope the people in Libya will soon be free from this terrible situation.

 

Japan Relief

“Aloha for Japan” relief shirt

There was an earthquake that occurred in Japan on March 10, 2011. The earthquake. It struck in the northeast of Tokyo with an 8.9 magnitude. There were 350 casualties and 500 people went missing. This quake was the fifth largest in the world since 1900. It was caused when the Pacific tectonic plate was under the North American plate that moved Eastern Japan towards North America by 13 feet.

A few hours after the earthquake, Hawaii’s Department of Emergency Management issued a tsunami warning. The sirens began at 9:59 p.m. on Thursday night and were sounding every hour starting at 11:15 p.m.

The natural disaster in Japan was tragic. They are dealing with a crisis and need help. All over the world different countries and organizations have been offering help to Japan in this time of need.

American Red Cross is taking donations through the web and text messages. Save the Children has a goal of raising $5 million for the long-term recovery for children affected. AmeriCares in Japan is working to deliver medicines and supplies to hospitals, shelters, and health responders for survivors.

Retail stores have worked closely with the Lt. Governor of Hawaii. Proceeds from the sale of the specially made “Aloha” relief-effort shirts have gone directly to the Japan recovery campaign. They have been sold all over the islands and still are being printed due to high demand. The Aloha for Japan shirts are white t-shirts with the word Aloha printed with the red dot from the Japanese flag representing the “O” in Aloha. On the back of the shirt is printed “The world will turn to Hawai’i as they search for world peace because Hawai’i has the key… and that key is Aloha!” –Auntie Pilahi Paki.”

In Hawaii we have had many Japan relief events.Here at the Academy, the class of 2011’s Senior Showcase on March 19 collected money for admissions and sold baked goods. On Tuesday, March 29, all students were permitted to wear red shirts and Japan relief shirts with jeans and donate money to Japan.

There is still a lot being done to help Japan as they recover from this tragedy. The donations made are being used to rebuild and restore Japan.

The Cultural Diversity of the Academy

Every year the Academy is blessed to have large amounts of diverse girls wanting to work on their education at said school. With  every new and returning girl, the diversity of the academy begins to flourish. As the school year starts its fourth quarter, it is high time for incoming students to apply themselves.

Students are taught to act and interact with the different cultures and learn languages, sometimes even the history of  some, for a deeper understanding of the ethnic backgrounds of which they have become. Classes that have come available are courses as the  Hawaiian History and Asian Studies for sophomores, and World Religions for Seniors.

A recent interview follows with a student in the Asian Studies class, Sakura Urie;

S. Sabado: What does Asian Studies offer?

Sakura U.: It’s mostly about China, but interesting aspects about it. It’s history, economy, culture, and anything else you could fit into a semester of learning.

S. Sabado: Has it taught you about cultural differences by being in this class?

Sakura. U: No because I am Chinese.

The picture listed above is of a recent event that was held February 28- March 4. This was the first World Language Week that was held at the Academy. This memorable event was organized to promote global awareness and to show the importances of foreign languages for the community of the school. Multi-cultural activities were held throughout the week and broadened the understandings and knowledge of the students it caters to.

Not only has the student body branched to outer- island schools, but they have gone to other states and countries as well. Students that drop in during the year from time to time are often have a military background or are Cultural Exchange/Study Abroad students. The exchange programs have a way of balancing out the different ethnicities of the students. These students are what also make the cultural diversity of the Academy.

 

Editorial:Makeup at the Beach?? April 6, 2011

Caption: Teenage, above picture, is posing at the beach wearing a minimum amount of makeup but is still looks amazing!

You are probably wondering why would you wear makeup to the beach? But what people don’t know is that it is possible to wear makeup. When you think of makeup you probably think of lip stick and eye shadow. That’s not what I mean. I mean makeup that can actually protects your skin and enhances your beauty at the same time. Summer is coming up and it is time to go the beach looking amazing!

I actually interviewed average people on their thoughts of wearing  makeup at the beach. Emily Ko, a student at Sacred Hearts Academy replied, “I don’t like to wear makeup at the beach because there is no purpose.” I also asked my sister, Nicole Banda on her thoughts of wearing makeup to the beach. She replied, “It’s stupid because what’s the point.”

First of all, sunscreen is self-explanatory but another option is using a tinted moisturizer. It is recommended to use tinted moisturizers with an SPF factor above 15 if necessary. I recommend Bobbie Brown Tinted Moisturizer. Foundation is a product that should be put aside for the beach. If you go into the water, it will become blotchy and eventually come off. Foundation is basically a shield for your face and you are not able to get any sun on your face. You will end up with a white face and a tan body.

An earthquake disaster and dispatch to the global community world are insufficient

Is neither government nor Tokyo Electric too insensitive to eyes from the world applied to a nuclear plant accident? When it releases contaminated water including the low-concentrated radioactive material from Fukushima first Nuclear Power Plant in the sea, as well as a person concerned with local government and fishery, it is a diplomatic blunder to have invited repulsion without giving a polite explanation in advance in the neighboring countries. The Naoto Kan government should recognize what this nuclear plant accident may affect on a global scale across one country of Japan and that world many countries share an interest with concern same as Japan some other time.

For release of the contaminated water, the Korean diplomatic Department of Trade expressed the dissatisfaction that was strong when there was not “a prior report”. A voice in dread of danger ranging from the Kremlin to fish comes out. It is natural to have told, “sincere, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano must take the indication that detailed explanation was necessary at a press conference of 6th beforehand”.

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea which Japan signs charges the contracting party with general duty to prevent marine pollution and demands it to minimize the release from the outbreak source in the land of a toxic or harmful material. I told, Minister of Foreign Affairs Takeaki Matsumoto “was not the thing which became the problem concerning duty in the international law promptly”, and the reporting showed the opinion with the thing by a voluntary judgment to the last. The interpretation of the international law may be so. But will not this be the minimum duty of the country which has given big uneasiness by a nuclear plant accident in the world, a problem of the good sense not duty so and so written to the paper?
