A home is a family's single largest purchase, and one of the few that doesn't come with an owner's manual. The Hawaii Home Book is here to fill that void. Produced in partnership with local home industry mainstay Hawaii Home + Remodeling magazine, this book covers the nuts and bolts of keeping a home in the Islands, from lighting to landscaping, roofing to pest control. • Hawaiian phrase book () • Hawaiian place names (Ulukau) • Hawaiʻi place names: shores, beaches, and surf sites, by John Clark () • Place names of Hawaii by Mary Kawena Pukui, Samuel Elbert, Esther Mookini () • Loanwords in Hawaiian by ʻŌiwi Parker Jones, in Loanwords in the world's languages ().   The phenomenon, known as a king tide, is actually a convergence of a few different factors: high lunar tides, rising sea levels associated with last year’s strong El Niño and climate change.

The CIA, the Chinese government, and the Defense Intelligence Agency attempt to thwart Koa’s investigation and obscure the victims’ true.
