Companion Planting In The Garden Makes “Good Neighbors”
We had to fix a little BOOBOO I created. I was going to rip up the kitchen tile, but now have decided to wait until next summer.
I decided to cut the tile down another 1/4 inch from where it was originally for the cabinet bases to fit properly without an issue. I can always put a wider baseboard along the bottom of cabinets until next summer.
I set my blade depth so I only cut the tile.
I used water. The little bottle I snipped a little more from the tip and wet down the tile.Kept the bottle to the rear of the saw and squirt the blade from behind it.
It helped a little but not much since the exhaust comes out of the side actually.
I am very impressed with what ease I had cutting the tile today. The Dremel “Saw Max” cut right through the tile. No vibration or jerking. Cut straight and true to the line.
You might want to use the vacuum hose connector to collect the dust. That was my only issue was dust and that was limited.
Now I can take out the remaining tile without chipping into it and breaking it.
This is my 3rd application using the Dremel “Saw Max” and I Love It. Great tool, all in one little mighty saw Dremel “Saw Max”.
One For The “DO NOT DO THIS” FILE: What ever you do do not use the SAW MAX for drywall INSIDE the house.
That was my first experience with my “saw Max”. My regular dremel broke in the middle of the project. I ended up with the “Saw Max” and blowing drywall dust all over every thing in my house. Better to use the regular Dremel with a drywall bit for drywall applications..
The Dremel Saw-Max reinvents cutting as you know it. Powerful enough to cut through virtually any material and simple enough to be able to control with one hand. Its compact size and ergonomic design makes it easy to handle, easy to follow the cut line, and easy to store. The Dremel Saw-Max gives users the ability to cut easily and efficiently for a job done right. Two year warranty.

“Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree,” Now being shown on your local television channels.
By: Chad Rhodes August9, 2018
I had a chance Today to review the documentary “Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree” on KGMB Hawaii CBS. What a life enlightenment to say the least. This is a must see no matter what part of the world you live in.
I am sure the world does not know of the plague that has hit the OHIA Trees on the Big Island of Hawaii. A forest of sticks instead of trees. This is a very dangerous situation for the ecosystem. Birds, bees and other wild life depend on the Ohia Tree.
Hawaii Invasive Species Council: Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death Continues Marching Across Hawai‘i Island
For the past few years now the death of Ohia forest after forest has become a great concern to the locals. As you can see from photos that the Ohia tree is a large part of the forest species on The Big Island of Hawaii.
A new documentary is being released August and September with the islands.
“Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree,” a new half-hour documentary on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death, the disease that is killing ʻōhiʻa lehua, Hawaii’s most widespread and important native tree. This documentary has been funded by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Council.
This film features some of the researchers and resource managers grappling with this new disease, and community members describing their emotional and cultural relationships with ʻōhiʻa.
Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority will support three screenings of the video on Hawaiʻi Island, including the premiere at the Palace Theater in Hilo at 6:30 p.m. on August 4.
With DLNR DOFAW assistance, the video will also be broadcast on local network affiliates statewide in August and September. The video was produced by Club Sullivan, with assistance from the Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death strategic response team. For more information on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death, visit www.RapidOhiaDeath.org.
See “Saving ʻŌhiʻa” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at:
August 4 Palace Theater, Hilo
August 17 Kahilu Theatre, Waimea
August 31 Aloha Theatre, Kealakekua

Google fined $2.7BN for EU antitrust violations over Proprietary Shopping Software
Brussels said tech giant abused dominance by manipulating search results to favor its own comparison shopping service.
- Google’s Proprietary Software on your Android Systems?
- Shopping habits tracked and recorded?
- Showing ads that are paid for by sellers that advertise through Google?
The clapping in the background that you hear are the entrepreneur’s of small internet companies. Most of them get stomped down and lost in the back pages thanks to Googles applications that are given to the manufacturing companies of android devices. “What Google has done is illegal under EU antitrust rules, It denied other companies the chance to compete on the merits and to innovate. And most importantly, it denied European consumers a genuine choice of services and the full benefits of innovation. It was claimed by Brussels that the abuse caused traffic to Google’s shopping service to jump.
Google is appealing against the record €2.4bn (US $2.7BN) fine imposed by the European Union for its abuse of its dominance of the search engine market in building its shopping comparison service. It is expected to take several years before the ruling on Google’s appeal will become a reality. They will tie this up in court until the moon doesn’t shine and continue with their bad habits.
What does the USA have to say? I haven’t really heard to much chatter from the money hungry officials of California. They are more absorbed in keeping their house keepers and gardeners right now. Keeping Slavery Strong in The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Anyone going to take on the Silicon Valley Giant? I don’t see Governor Jerry Brown or Dianne Feinstein chiming in and saying a word on this. Does he not care that his community of supporters are being railroaded into only shopping on an application loaded with proprietary software continue to skate around.
USA Reports: Cardiac Arrest In Younger Pregnant Women Is On The Rise
NYU – School Of Medicine has conducted a study for the past 12 years on Heart Disease in pregnant women. Between 2002 and 2014 Cardiac Arrest has been the leading cause of death for 25% of young pregnant women. Heart Disease has been the number one cause of death for women for many years, but for younger women this is a drastic change compared to earlier years.
The disease in young women has been increasing and raising great concerns not only for the mother, but for the health of the unborn child also. The risk factors for heart disease continue to increase in the United States. “High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes are all higher in our younger women. Stress is another factor in High Risk pregnancy.
Rise in obesity in society plays a big part. Between more junk food available and the convenience of the “Drive Thru food”. Adding yeast to many packaged food and many drinks also.
You could ask if the younger women are getting enough “Quality” exercise, food and fluid intake. We all know with our busy lives exercise is the last thing we want to do after work all day. Making a wholesome meal for the family is about all the energy you can muster up. You end up asking yourself, where do I fit the time in?
The family entrees from the frozen section become your main staples. The concentrated amounts of sodium and preservatives is off the charts. Not only are you adding all this to your body that is creating it’s own voyage of problems to your heart risk factors.
Exercise does not have to mean Hitting the Gym 3 times a week. You can walk, band workout and create a new healthy diet. Include fresh home cooked meals that are lean, ending bad calorie intake.
Get the kids to help you in the kitchen with dinner. Bringing your kids up with healthy choices makes their lifestyle an asset to their healthy future. Kids are great for washing the vegetables and mixing things up relieves you from 30 minutes of stress and time.
Most parents can not spend hours away from the kids, house or work. My solution is to incorporate the kids activities with yours.
Weekends are a good place to start. Take the kids for a walk every morning, that gets all of you on the road to increased blood flow through your body. As we all know the heart needs lots of exercise and if you sit for 8 hours a day, you need this more than those who stand up for work.

BJOG: UK Reports, Nearly one in four cardiac arrests in pregnancy are associated with complications of obstetric anesthesia.
Nearly one in four cardiac arrests in pregnancy are associated with complications of obstetric anesthesia, according to a new study published today (Friday 24 February) in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (BJOG).
The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of cardiac arrest in the UK obstetric population, describe how cardiac arrest in pregnancy is managed and report maternal and fetal outcomes. Using the UK Obstetric Surveillance System (UKOSS), researchers identified 66 women who had experienced a cardiac arrest in pregnancy among 2.3 million who gave birth between 2011 and 2014.
The three year study shows that maternal cardiac arrest in the UK is very rare (a 1 in 36,000 risk) and that maternal survival rates of 58% were possible due to timely resuscitation and rapid perimortem caesarean section (PMCS). In the 66 women involved in the study, cardiac output was restored in 48 and 49 women had a PMCS. The results also show that time from collapse to PMCS was significantly shorter in women who survived. 58 babies were delivered, 12 were stillborn.
Results found that the main association of collapse among antenatal women was obstetric anesthesia, given as an epidural, spinal or combined spinal-epidural. 16 (24%) of the women in the study had a cardiac arrest following obstetric anesthesia (all survived).
Meanwhile, 12 of the 16 women (75%) who had a cardiac arrest following obstetric anesthesia were obese (defined as having a Body Mass Index of 30kg/m2 or more). This supports the view that obese pregnant women are at a higher risk of complications of anesthesia, as the increased body fat makes procedures technically more difficult.
The study also shows that hypovolaemia (a decrease in blood volume), venous thromboembolism (a formation of blood clots in the vein) and amniotic fluid embolism (when amniotic fluid or other debris makes its way into the mother’s blood) are the main non-anaesthetic causes of cardiac arrest. As recommended in the most recent MBRRACE-UK report, there is a pressing need to improve systems focused on preventing and responding appropriately to these complications.”
In addition, of the 66 women who arrested in pregnancy, 27 had co-morbidities which may have contributed to maternal arrest. The most common problems reported were asthma, mental health problems, cardiac disease, hypertension, hematological, autoimmune and endocrine problems.
The researchers suggest a revision of multi-disciplinary training for healthcare professionals, and a revision of supervision and support on the labor ward.
Dr Virginia Beckett, lead author and consultant obstetrician and gynecologist at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“Our study shows that management of cardiac arrest in pregnancy in the UK, following the introduction of training such as the Managing Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma (MOET) course, has resulted in a 58% maternal survival rate. The main reasons for this appear to be the involvement of senior medical professionals and swift PMCS.
“American data shows that up to one third of women who arrest die with their baby still in utero. In the UK, we take a very different approach; in this study, PMCS was carried out in 49 (74%) of the 66 women involved (only two women remained undelivered when they should have had a PMCS). This is close to a five-fold improvement. Rapid PMCS saves women’s lives.
“However, our study shows that the single, biggest association of maternal cardiac arrest is a complication of anesthesia. Further research is needed into this finding which presents an opportunity to reduce the incidence of maternal cardiac in the UK.
Mr Edward Morris, Vice President for Clinical Quality at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG), said:
“This study demonstrates the importance of robust multi-disciplinary risk assessment processes in antenatal care, as well as team training to manage obstetric emergencies. It is also a great example of the value of collecting high quality data through UKOSS to improve outcomes for patients.
“Childbirth can be unpredictable and timely access to specialist care is critical; especially for those considered at higher risk due to per-existing health conditions. This data supports existing evidence that maternal cardiac arrest is becoming more common, and there may be opportunities to further improve survival rates through detailed analysis of this data.
“Obesity has reached pandemic proportions globally, with around one in five pregnant women in the UK considered obese. This increases their risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death as well gestational diabetes, blood clots, per-eclampsia, more complicated labors, and severe bleeding after the birth. Although they survived, a high proportion of the women who had cardiac arrests following obstetric anesthesia were obese.
“Maintaining a normal body weight can reduce the risk of complications for both mother and baby. Women should keep active and eat well prior to conception and limit weight gain during pregnancy in order to improve their own health and provide their baby with the best start in life.”
Mr Michael Masch, Deputy Editor-in-chief of BJOG, added:
“Although about 60 percent of women survived, and most received timely resuscitation and perimortem caesarean section, this study highlights the necessity for regular multi-disciplinary training in specific arrest management. Further research into the links between anesthesia and cardiac arrest is also warranted.”

What is our Local Government up to now?
You sometimes wonder if you need to be a bigger spy on our government than they are with us. Riddle me this BatMan.
The days of keeping secrets to keep money rolling into the economy on this rock is over. There is a 1.5 mile WIDE river of HOT MOLTEN LAVA moving at terrifying speeds across the lower East side community of Puna. With no sign it is going to stop any time soon and with little information from the Local Officials leaves the community in limbo.
I shutter as I repeat these words. You could and will be arrested and your photos will be confiscated.. WHAT??? Did you just take away one of my constitutional rights?
First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Eighth Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
How can the Big Island officials pass policies that take the rights away from the citizens to take pictures of the lava flow? To take pictures of their own property. Whether it’s still standing or on fire with the lava starting to creep in and eat away at the edge of the siding. Why, if you are safely away and not putting anyone else’s life in danger, and that includes emergency responder’s. there is no harm. If you are sneaking in the backside, going on other peoples property, taking tourists and filming then you should be arrested.
WHAT ARE YOU HIDING??? What are you not telling the people of this community?
As the earthquakes continue, the force of each tremor seems stronger with continuing rumbling that sounds like an empty stomach. When you have over 500 earthquakes a day, with at least a couple that are 5.0 +. Your nerves start to fray. Especially if you have already been displaced by the eruption.

WARNING: LIGHT UP SHOES FOR KIDS, DO NOT LET THEM GET WET!!!!
WOW amazing that we actually have to worry about battery acid burning our child’s feet. Your child’s shoes going up in flames in the middle of the night.
The reports of injury and mishaps are creating a health issue for the child and a night mare for the parents.
You would never think that something like this would be even be possible, or that it would burn down your house.
A young girls light Up Shoes went up in flames and burnt down the house. The family dog woke them up and everyone got out safe.
One young Boy was lucky and has only suffered 2nd degree chemical burns from his sketcher light up shoes. Apparently when they get wet the batteries release a chemical causing children’s feet to burn
Another boys shoes burned the family cars back seat out. Thank God the child was not wearing them at the time. His mother says with him being so young could he actually tell her something was wrong or even worse that he may not be able to take them off by himself.
Payless and Sketchers voluntarily took the shoe off the shelves. But beware they are being resold through used outlet stores or on Ebay.
Find Out What’s inside the light up shoe (LED) that makes them so dangerous. Here’s what’s inside the shoes…

2018 is this year going to reveal what we all have feared?
With so many natural disasters with in the past few years taxing FEMA’s piggy bank, what happens when its all gone?
What will America do when FEMA is broke? Do you have home owners insurance or renters insurance to cover your damages?
Just to name a few places. Texas, Hawaii, Louisiana, Florida, New York, New Jersey, East Coast, West Coast fires and Mudslides, Earth Quakes, Extended weather, unusual tornadoes and hurricane seasons are becoming more familiar everyday.
FEMA’s Budget 13.9 Billion dollars has been set aside for 2018
We are only into 6 months of the year and the balance left is $21 million at the end of May 2018. That does not include Hawaii’s Volcano Eruption.

Did you know that walking can help our bodies fight off the Common cold and Flu?
- A Simple short brisk 5 minute walk after lunch can keep that bug away.
- Walking every day for 5 or 10 minutes. If you have longer, even better. It keeps the circulation in your legs healthy. Healthy legs, Healthy Life.
- Exercises your heart with lite cardio. No strenuous exercises.
- Stanford researchers found that walking boosts creative inspiration. They examined creativity levels of people while they walked versus while they sat. A person’s creative output increased by an average of 60 percent when walking.
- Walking improves cardiac risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, vascular stiffness and inflammation, and mental stress.
- If cardiac protection and a lower death rate are not enough to get you moving, consider that walking and other moderate exercise programs also help protect against dementia, peripheral artery disease, obesity, diabetes, depression, colon cancer, and even erectile dysfunction.
ARE YOU READY… Living Healthy Pays off in The Long Run…..
Walking it off
Exercise burns calories. In the case of walking and running, the calories you burn depend much more on the distance you cover and your body weight than on your pace. This table shows calories burned per mile of walking or jogging on the level for people of varying weights:
A hundred or so calories a mile might not seem like much, but they can add up to better weight control. For example, a 2009 study of 4,995 men and women found that the average American gains about 2.2 pounds a year during middle age. But during the 15-year study, people who walked gained significantly less weight than those who didn’t; the more walking, the less weight gain. And the benefit was greatest in the heaviest individuals. For example, walking for just 35 minutes a day saved a 160-pound person about 18 pounds of flab over 15 years of aging.
Approximate calories per mile
- Regular daily walking has been found to trigger an anti-aging process and help repair old DNA
- Those who engaged in daily moderate exercise, such as a brisk walk, experienced anti-aging benefits that could add an additional three to seven years to your life
- Recommended 20-minute daily walk to reap these benefits, but try striving to walk 10,000 steps a day is a better goal
- Walking is an essential movement that we all require, ideally in addition to a regular exercise program
- Activities like running and working out can reduce anxiety and improve your mood. It’s not just vigorous exercise, however, that has these kinds of benefits. A new study published found that walking may be an effective way to alleviate depression.
- Endorphins are your body’s pain-inhibiting hormones, and exercise walking can spur their release. This means that walking not only helps you maintain your functional capabilities, but it can also reduce your chronic lower back pain.
OOH My heart is breaking.. Along with all the others in this community.
This video is very short cause I could only find so many pictures @ midnight last night. I was up until 4:30am this morning. Just starting to make videos.. After the movie was finished and I “proof” watched it. My heart broke just a little bit more and many tears filled my eyes. That was the first water my toes ever touched and as of today it has been the last. “A Hui Hou” to a great beauty of Hawaii.
A volcano eruption can put many animals at risk.
Animals who inhale or ingest volcanic ash are at risk for fluoride poisoning. This could cause internal bleeding, long-term bone damage and teeth loss.
Cows, sheep, goats and horses should be rounded up and put in a closed barn, provided with hay and clean water until the ash dissipated.
Birds were also affected by the volcano. The ponds became heavy with mud and they were unable to fly because their wings were covered with ash.
Guidelines for pet owners concerning animal health after a volcano:
- if you notice any symptoms or smell sulfur, rotten eggs or a strong acidic smell take reasonable action to protect your pets by limiting their time outdoors
- any pets with respiratory problems should be well protected from the atmosphere
- cover outdoor aviaries to protect birds
- find suitable shelter for any pets that usually live outdoors.
“Pet owners should limit the amount of time that they and their animals spend outside if they detect the ash and consult a vet if they have any concerns about the health of their pets.”
Make sure that you bathe your pet often in Luke warm. Keep any wounds covered and dry. Change bandages everyday for any wounds.

EMERGENCY DONATIONS NEEDED FOR HAWAII
The Struggle For These Animals Are “REAL”
As you all know by now, on the Big Island of Hawaii on May 3, 2018 we had an volcano eruption. Leilani Estates was the first Subdivision to be affected. Many animals at that time were left behind. Some had no choice but to leave their pets.
This community has come together with many volunteers. They have activated their own search and rescue efforts. The Rescue Agency pay for all the gas, food and any other expenses. Now with donations starting to come in has made a big improvement for the rescue animals. People have taken animals into their homes for temporary housing. Everyone is pitching in where they can. The Rescue Agency’s are full. Some have erected temporary structures to house the animals.
June 5, 2018 UPDATE: There have been 4 of new areas added for the animals to be rescued.
All Of Hawaii’s Animal Rescue Agency’s are still rescuing the Animals Left Behind in this Crisis.
A Special Shout Out To All Of the Hawaii and Mainland Rescue Agency’s For Pitching In and Helping.
The Animals Thank You
Every Agency Could Use A $1 DONATION
The Hawaiʻi Lava Flow Animal Rescue Network (HLFARN) was created to serve as an informational hub for those needing assistance with pets and animals on farms during the 2018 eruption of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. But it has become so much more than that. HLFARN has blossomed from a group of strangers into an Ohana; a family of people whose love for animals has taken them into the path of an erupting volcano to rescue pets and farm animals that have been left behind.
