Advertiser Staff and News Services

Local vs. hip-hop nevah da twain going meet? Wrong, brother ... er, should we say, bruddah? You'll find multiple intersections of the two cultures in "Hip-Hop Hawai'i," a free, 31-page student journal by Kapi'olani Community College students Ryan Okuno and Lisa Mizuire, co-edited by Lee Tonouchi.

See the Hawaiian version of bling, read the story of a member of the Town Swat Team b-boys and check out the tagging photos in this booklet, which won a special merit prize in the 2005 American Scholastic Press Association's annual contest. Pick up copies and get them signed 10 a.m. Tuesday in KCC's Lama Library front lobby; 366-1272.

PERSONAL CALLS CAN STRESS YOU ON JOB

Maybe it's not your job that's stressing you out. It could be your ringing cell phone.

Fielding personal calls at work makes women feel frazzled, according to the Journal of Marriage and Family.

E-mail is less likely to agitate, so tell your friends to write instead.

FINAL WORD

"I have too much passion and too much love for the things that are great to be cynical. Cynical means you've thrown in the towel."
