    In mathematics, today is the annual celebration of all things Pi, the Greek letter that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference (the distance around) to its diameter (the line across its widest point), which numerically is stated as 3.14159. This is an approximate number, not exact; the beauty of Pi is that is goes on and on, almost touching infinity.

Yards and lanais are prime opportunity to help cut food expenses. You can do it by planting vegetables along with your ornamentals. If you’re going to a have a top-notch garden, it’s time to plan the planting layout for fall.

    The Hawaii International Film Festival has its Spring Showcase presented by Halekulani March 31 to April 9. This will be the 20th anniversary for the Spring Showcase. HIFF is known for its fall festival in November, which is the main event for the year and Spring Showcase is the smaller festival with more focus on films and less events. The Korean section of the film festival has always been a strength for HIFF but with recent regular theatrical release of South Korean films in local theaters, it’s becoming more of a challenge to get feature films to show at HIFF. But HIFF has always been a conduit for South Korean documentaries, animation, short films, and independent films to get a chance at international distribution. HIFF is a great platform to get international recognition by industry critics. HIFF also provides the only chance for locals to see these films as non-feature films rarely get to Hawaii. Visit for more information on Spring Showcase.
