Helping Hands for Japan

I’m half Japanese (the other half is Okinawan, and yes, there is a difference).

That said, many of us in Hawai’i have been trying to raise–and give–funds for disaster relief.

I took part in the Flock of Cranes fundraiser organized by my Twitter and in real life buddies Appi Yashiro and Ricky Li. A thousand cranes representing healing were folded, plus money was raised, for disaster relief. There’s more, of course: local clothing manufacturers are donating money from the sale of the Aloha Japan shirt, for instance. The Red Cross is taking donations directly; through sending a SMS message a $10 add on to your phone bill becomes a donation to Japan disaster relief.

Let’s do what we can to help those who were devastated by this disaster.

    based on this simple equation, the following happens:

    Assume you have on item with a rating of 0.93, based on 100s of votes. Now another new item is rated by a total of 2 visitors (or even just one), and they rate it +. Boom, it goes straight to #1 position in the ranking, as its rating is 100%!

    If you crate your dogs, give them plenty of exercise and spend a lot of time with them, they’ll never feel as though there is anything wrong. The place where owners can go wrong is when they leave their dogs outside and only interact with them as they are entering or leaving the house.
