Guest Speaker Makina Chai spoke on SEXUAL HARASSMENT:
 
She is a lawyer and a teacher of Sexual Harassment and has a lot of experience in this field.
LEGAL DEFINITION - All 4 factors must be met for behavior to violate the law;
1. Related to sex, gender, or other protected classifications
2.Unwelcome -  must be perceived as such
3.So severe it interferes with work
The employer knew or should have known, and did nothing (IF a Supervisor harasses, this factor is automatically met)
 
POLICY:
Should set a higher standard than the law
Should allow complaints to any manager
Each workplace should have a policy
 
Question ??? Keiki Vision ? We should try to avoid touching the children.  "Aloha" can go to far.
 
Respectfully
Linda C.
 
Aloha Rotarians and Friends,
This morning we were delighted to have a comedian ERIC GOLUB enlighten and amuse us. Eric has spoken in all 50 states and does not charge Rotary because he believes in the good works that we do. His routine, amusingly, covered religion. immigration, education, race, gender and other fun topics in a way that was safe and clean and left us with something meaningful to think about.
 
NEXT WEEK; our guest speaker will be MAKINA CHAI who will speak on SEXUAL HARASSMENT. This is another great opportunity to bring a guest to hear this great speaker.

This weeks guest speaker was SENATOR GLENN WAKAI who also is part of a firm called REACH OUT PACIFIC which sends medical supplies to Micronesia. in the Senate he is Chair of the Economic Development & Tourism Committee. He shared his very moving story of finding his birth mother and  opening up Japan to better and more widely used Foster Care for children.
 
CHASING STRATEGIC ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR HAWAII:
More money needs to be allocated to this area. We must move from #50 in State Business Climate , higher. WE are #1 in "Best places to live". The goal is 80/80. To have 800,000 Teach jobs paying over $80,000 by 2030.
How ????  Investing in and growing the 4 "A"s.
 
A - Affordable and renewable energy. We can become a world leader with our solar, wind, geothermal, wave and our 360 days of sunshine.
A - Aerospace & Drones. develop a NASA SPACE CAMP on the BI and use of proximity to the equator to our advantage.
A - Aquaculture -  we import too much and could make over $40 million in raising our own food and WE be the exporter, especially seafood.
A - Aloha Stadium. Better utilize those 104 acres, using Public/Private Partnership, to make it a place where locals and tourists can eat, shop. be entertained every day of the week. (EX: Staples Center in LA).
 
Respectfully,
Linda C.

Next week's speaker:  Senator Glenn Wakai speaking on "God's Country and Economic initiatives.
 
This weeks speaker was Ken Arima who spoke on DISASTER  & EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS. He has been teaching these classes to DOE, CD, HECO 7 public, since 1987.  ( Some coincidence today , Eh ?)
 
DISASTER & EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS  -  items you should have in your home: BE READY TO SHELTER IN PLACE (in a room with no windows)
 
*  Box of Costco or Sam's Club 10 Gal. trash bags to line toilet, and supposed of in a whole in your yard that you previously dug. (No electricity, no water pumps, no flushing, no trash pu.) 5 boxes recommended
*  3 months - one year of FOOD supply of the things you ordinarily eat. Canned goods and vacu-seal are ideal. Rotate them yearly, if not used.
*  25 - 50 lbs of rice prepared in 2 - 3 lbs vacuum-sealed bags (will last for years) Costco has vacu machine + bags. Ken will do it for you, if you buy bags ($4)   his cell is 306-4909. He is serious about this !!!
   One can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup (undiluted) can be used to drizzle over 4 bowls of rice. ( RAMEN also works well and keeps for a long time). Aim for minimum consumption and stretching food supply.
   If you can get outside, you can make a cooking pot of 3 bricks (or stones) a grate and place kindling underneath to cook or heat water.  
* Purchase several 5 gal bottle with handles (Walmart $8) and fill with tap water. Place outside in sun for 2 hours every so other, if not used, to kill bacteria. Remember that bottled water is filtered and all the minerals you need are removed, and one case of water only yields app. 2 1/2 gal and each adults needs 2 - 6 cups per day for drinking. No electric, no water pump. Our water comes right from the aquifer. (Lucky us !).
* Beforehand, communicate with family, friends and neighbors to have a plan to help each other. THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS.
* HAVE MEDICATION, IMPORTANT PAPERS & TOILETRIES READILY AVAILABLE TO TAKE TO SHELTER AREA.
* Essential workers prepare family that you may be unavailable and have a plan. Fire, police, EMS, medical workers etc.) 
*Have IDORO on hand (Amazon $5). this is an iodine supplement to protect the Thyroid Gland against radioactivity if there is a radioactive incident. Take one as soon as you hear of the incoming blast. SEAWEED also works.
* Weapon of some sort to protect against intruders and looters who may want your food and water. There are guns, knives, a multi-useful o'o stick with a sharp point, mace, screwdriver, bat, baton stick etc.
* Long stick with a "Y" at the top to make a clothesline, hold up electrical lines.
* Alcohol (125%) for using  as anesthesia for First Aid Purposes
* Radiation Meters available online for $15.  A large part of the population near blast side will be incinerated but the rest must prepare for prevention of radiation exposure. Could be up to 4 weeks.
* Backpack lined with KEVLAR and filled with necessary items for protection and kept on hand.
 
Remember;
HELP  MAY NOT BE ON THE WAY !!!!

 Today's speaker was our own and friend of RCMS, Colin Brede, husband to member Jodie Brede. Colin reported on the "Coordinated and Collaborative Responses to Terrorism and Mass Violence Crimes" training that was conducted in conjunction with the Federal government (FBI), State of Hawaii, and many segments/businesses of our lives (hotel industry, airport, crisis responders, etc). Because of the acts of terrorism or mass violence that have taken place (like Sandy Hook, the LV mass shooting,the Texas church shooting, etc), Colin informed us what the crisis responders must do to help the many victims, survivors, families, and affected communities.
 
Reminders;
