Review for California Academy of Science, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I LOVE this unique museum, research and educational institution. This is the place that recently discovered the sharks are warm blooded which led to the finding that many fish (including tuna) are also warm blooded. And discovered 50 new major species in the Philippines last year.

This is also the place where you can see penguins and kids can enjoy the white alligator.

And it's the place where school kids from San Francisco get great scientific education.

Review for ENTREPRENEURS FOUNDATION OF HAWAII, Honolulu, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm biased as one of the founders of EF Hawaii and a current board member. This is a unique organization that allows startups to use a little (1%) of their founding stock to make a difference!

To date, EF Hawaii has contributed needed scholastic materials to thousands of school children. It has rescued dozens of families at holiday times. It has helped build homes.

Most importantly, it raises the consciousness of young entrepreneurs that they can make a difference.

Review for HAWAII PUBLIC RADIO, Honolulu, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One of the nation's best public radio stations with one of the smallest budgets. Yet they capably run two 24 hour stations with different programming! And the programming is not just "all NPR" it's locally produced and BBC, Deutsche Welle, CBC, PRI, etc.

And an incredibly talented on-air team with arguably the best jazz DJ in the nation like Don Gordon and it's a winna!

I can't say enough good things about this station which most other public radio stations could take a lesson from.
