    2015 Hawaii football preview

    in Sports

    Jeremy and Chris are back for the fourth installment of us previewing each Mountain West team. This week we bring on Chris Turner to discuss what is in store for Hawaii for the upcoming year. The Warriors were close in a lot of games last year so the hope is that the multiple single digit loses will turn into wins this year.


    Hawaii does seem to have some stability at the quarterback position with USC quarterback Max Wittek under center, but the loss of running back Joey Iosefa might be hard to replace. The schedule isn't exactly easy with non-conference games against Colorado, Ohio State and Wisconsin.

    Jen Pio, M.A.~Forensic Psychologist/The Paranormal in Hawaii

    in Paranormal

    Jen Pio


    Jen Pio has her Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology.  She currently provides case management and outreach to the homeless community. She is a wife and mother with four beautiful daughters. Jen was born in Albuquerque, new Mexico.  Her family then moved to California where she grew up in Long Beach.  Jen loves playing softball and enjoying her family.  She has always had experiences of what people call "de ja vu", or as she wouId like to say, "It's been seen". Her oldest daughter showed some psychic abilities at a very young age, but it trickled away as the years passed. She thinks partly because it was not focused on or encouraged enough. They currently live in Westminster, CA.  for almost 2 years since moving from Kea'au, Hawaii where they lived for almost a year and a half. Jen will be speaking with us about the paranormal in Hawaii and her and her families experiences. One of the stories that we all have heard of is The Curse of Pele. "Pele’s Curse is the belief that anything natively Hawaiian, such as sand, rock, or pumice, will impart bad luck on whoever takes it away from the island. One version about the legend’s genesis is this: a disgruntled park ranger, angry at the number of rocks that were being taken from the islands by visitors, said that Pele would curse them with bad luck should they take anything. Another version often told is that bus drivers, tired of the dirt and grime brought on their buses by the tourists’ collection of rocks, started the story at the beginning of each tour to discourage the rock collecting. True or not, every year countless tourists send these back in order to escape the awful bad luck they acquired". (ZACH ROYER, paranormal Investigator.)

    In this show, I strongly felt the presence of Mauna Kea (Mauna a Wakea) speaking through me (or with me), Maybe that seems a little strange to some, but that’s what I felt.


    Show link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kpradiohawaii/2015/05/11/kp-radio-hawaii-really-early-morning-with-kp-5-11-15


    Talked about (among other things):



    What was going on with “the body” the last few days, and what was learned from the “back issues” (see this post).

    The events happening at Mauna Kea (Mauna a Wakea).

    The videos of Aunty Pua (Case) and Lanakila Mangauil speaking on top of Mauna Kea.

    How Mauna Kea (Mauna a Wakea) is “the gold standard” of Sacred sites in Hawai’i.

    Climate Ride for National Parks

    in Environment

    John Garder (pictured on far right) and Natalie Levine (center picture) from the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), call in to chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, during the 2015 Climate Ride California North Coast. On the NPCA team, John and Natalie talk about the ride, and the climate change issues facing our National Park system.

    Climate Ride California is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles - the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation. Since 1919, the nonpartisan National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) has been the leading voice of the American people in protecting and enhancing our National Park System’s most significant lands and landmarks.

    This interview originally aired on May 18, 2015 as part of Big Blend Radio's Vacation Station Travel Radio Expo, that broadcasted live from Yerington Inn, in western Nevada.
