NAʻALEHU COMMUNITY CENTER will have a sign to signify its location very soon, according to County Council chair Maile David. She recently wrote to sign advocate Tim wright saying the sign will be on the highway, after the community center's renovations are completed around the first part of August. The Parks & Recreation director will coordinate sign design, placement and state Department of Transportation sign approval. "I know it's been a long time but we're getting there," said David. "Despite the many challenges due to Covid, Director Messina and his team at Parks & Rec have been diligent and working very hard to get their facilities back in line as quickly as possible."

The HDSoC project is a continuation of research and development that Nalu Scientific has worked on since its founding in 2016.
Having successfully delivered a 32-channel prototype in Phase I, Nalu Scientific is now working toward developing a commercially viable 64-channel waveform sampling chip that has an integrated readout and can be adjusted for sensor biases.
"Modern sensors with applications in measuring fundamental properties of matter require advanced electronics for fast processing from many independent sources," explains Nalu Scientific Founder & CEO Isar Mostafanezhad. "Our solution provides a low cost, low power, but high-performance electronic processing microchip with applications in fundamental research as well as commercial applications."
Similar to HDSoC, STRAWZ proposes ultra-fast and very precise data acquisition and processing via an advanced digitizer chip, this one featuring zero suppression and self-triggering.
HiPAREX, meanwhile, is aimed at enhancing X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy, which is used to measure and analyze materials and chemical reactions. The proposed system would have integrated digital readout circuitry and prioritize a compact enclosure to allow it to be pleased closer to the experiment.
"The future of basic science, engineering, and medical discoveries depend upon user-friendly electronic lab tools with ever more precise timing measurements," Mostafanezhad says. "Our technology provides low-cost, low-power, turn-key solutions usable by scientists and engineers."
The Phase I awards received by Nalu Scientific are part of $37 million in funding provided to 139 small businesses in 32 states. The Phase II award was part of a $115 million funding opportunity recently announced for fiscal year 2021.
"By investing directly in small businesses, including diverse entrepreneurs, we can foster the creative ideas that will transform our nation's energy sector, address the climate crisis, and build an equitable clean energy economy," U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said in a statement.
Altogether, the company has raised nearly $12 million since its founding in 2016. Nalu was named Hawai'i's Most Innovative Company in 2019 by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Hawai’i Business Magazine. For more information, visit www.naluscientific.com.
The Small Business Innovative Research program was established in 1982, Its objectives are to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector, strengthen the role of small businesses in meeting federal research and development (R&D) needs, and increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal research and development.
There have been 352 major accidents so far this year compared with 367 during the same period last year, a decrease of 4.1 percent.
To date, there were 11 fatal crashes, resulting in 11 fatalities, compared with 9 fatal crashes, resulting in 9 fatalities for the same time last year. This represents an increase of 22.2 percent for fatal crashes, and 22.2 percent for fatalities. DUI roadblocks and patrols will continue island wide, promises HPD.
HAWAIIAN SOUL, THE 'AINA PAIKAI FILM ON THE LIFE OF GEROGE HELM, comes to Ocean View Drive-in, Wednesday, June 16. The free presentation is at 7 p.m. Hawaiian Soul premiered at the most recent Hawaiʻi International Film Festival where it won Best Made in Hawai`i Short and the Audience Award.
