Hawaii Emergency Management Employee Reassigned

Hawaii Emergency Management Employee Reassigned:  The Hawaii emergency management employee who set off a statewide panic on Saturday morning by sending out a false alarm about an incoming ballistic missile has been temporarily reassigned.  Emergency management officials are reassuring the public that everything is back under control and that the employee has been reassigned - to the tsunami emergency alert division.


Scientists Confirm Men Are the Weaker Sex:  A new study concluded that men really are the weaker sex - because in times of famine, epidemic and hardship over the past 250 years, women have consistently outlived men.  Yea, well - I guess there are different types of strengths and weaknesses.  I just saw research which concluded women are actually the weaker sex - of course, that conclusion was based upon an “arm wrestling study.”


Man’s Sense of Touch Restored with a Prosthetic Hand:  Nine years after he lost his hand in a fireworks accident, surgeons in Europe have surgically restored a man’s sense of touch on his prosthetic hand, marking the first time sensory feedback has ever been restored through a prosthetic.  All I can say is, its rather touching to think that now - when this guy gives someone the finger - he can really feel it.

Hawaii emergency management employee reassigned, meanwhile the idiot in the White House goes golfing on MLK Day and insists he is not a racist.

According to a study conducted by me, men don't live as long, because they have to put up with women

So I guess this guy can now feel fireworks when they blow-up in his prosthetic hand

One somewhat comforting difference between the islands’ incoming ballistic missile alerts and their incoming tsunami alerts might be that the more frequent latter alerts are most always accompanied by info regarding location of land or submarine energy origin so it gives folks a chance to calculate the time they got ready to downshift then either gun it to look for a loved ones and safety or just put it park for an event that could arrive in from thirty seconds if a shelf or land slide over pele's birth channel to half a day if from the plate rim periphery.

While some if not most think of the Hawaiian Islands and something of a backwater (what a joke, home to Pearl Harbor, Hickam Air Force Base, best Telescopes in the World, best Ocean testing for food and power, etc., no one else is even close, we actually control the world through Pearl's ONLY deep water harbor in the Pacific capable of holding all that nuclear weaponry, and the air power and sea power to deliver it) one other thing Hawaii has is the best warning system in the entire world. You can hear the warning sirens whether you are in downtown Honolulu or 100 miles away from Lahaina in the Jungles of Kipahulu. There is nothing like it, anywhere.

Thanks for all your comments guys!

Not the operator's fault.  If you look at the user interface, it was an accident waiting to happen.  The ones to blame are the ones who wrote the specs, designed it, and approved it.

This is a photo of the screen.  The False Alarm at the top was added after the incident.

There's a good write-up at Gizmodo.

Like I said: Landslide - Hana Road Closure ... this is the route into the Kipahulu Jungle.
