Hawai'i's aquifers have limited capacity to store fresh groundwater because each island is small and surrounded by saltwater. Saltwater also underlies much of the fresh groundwater. Fresh groundwater resources are, therefore, particularly vulnerable to human activity, short-term climate cycles, and long-term climate change.
Your credit score is one of the key metrics many lenders consider when determining whether to approve your mortgage application, car loan or new credit card. The most widely used Fico Score attempts to quantify the likelyhood that you might go past due on a new loan.

North Korea is a mythically strange land, an Absurdistan, where almost nothing is known about the people or, more important, their missile-launching leaders. There is, however, one man-a humble sushi chef from Japan-who infiltrated the inner sanctum, becoming the Dear Leader's cook, confidant, and court jester.
Like the Giant Dipper at the Boardwalk, Kiwi Gardner's basketball career has been nothing short of a roller coaster. From being declared ineligible at Providence, to a junior college basketball coach going mental on Twitter, Gardner finally landed on the Santa Cruz Warriors roster as a seventh round selection in the D-League Draft last year.
Right wing tabloid New York Post published a thinly-veiled press release today for the NYPD on how a slippery group of "rich kid" "anarchists" were using social media and burner phones to get one over on the NYPD: Tech-savvy anarchists [ed note: LOL] ran rings around the NYPD during last week's Ferguson-related protests - and cops are now on edge over what the renegades may be able to pull off after a ruling in the Eric Garner case.
Today we attempt to answer two pressing questions: 1. How bad is the selloff? 2. What do we do? We count 17 significant declines for the S&P 500 Index during the past five years, and the 9.8 percent selloff from Sept. 19 to yesterday's low represents the most since mid-2011.

Here's something we haven't seen in 20 years: Small-capitalization stocks have come completed unglued from their large-cap counterparts. These two extreme segments of the market have tended to trade in tandem, generally rising and falling together over time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
