First rat lungworm disease on Oahu


Now it is official.  State Department of Health has confirmed the first new case of rat lungworm disease in an Oahu resident in 2017.  There are a total of 16 confirmed cases statewide.



Here comes the flu season again.  Center for Disease Control and Prevention, under the US Department of Health and Human Services recommend vaccinations.  Please check with your doctor for flu shots information.


Starting Jan 1, 2017, the minimum wage for Hawaii will be $9.25 per hour, an increase of $0.75 per hour.  Making minimum wage is hard to live in an expensive city like Hawaii.  Anyway, an increase of $0.75 per hour translate to extra $6 per 8-hour day.  What can you buy for $6?  Maybe a bubble milk tea!!!
