In 1828, a teenage boy appeared in Nuremberg, Germany, carrying a letter that stated he had been placed in the care of the anonymous author as an infant. This caretaker claimed to have taught the boy reading, writing, and religion but never let him leave the house. The boy barely spoke but confirmed that he had been kept in a dark prison hole. In the following years, he sustained several mysterious injuries, and he was fatally stabbed in 1833. Who is thought to have been behind his death? More… Discuss

Horkheimer was a German philosopher and sociologist and played an important role in the development of critical theory and Western Marxism. In Eclipse of Reason and Dialectic of Enlightenment, he developed a critique of scientific positivism, and his ideas about liberation and consumer society continue to influence contemporary empirical sociologists. What did Horkheimer believe to be the cause of the ills of modern society? More… Discuss

Polaris was seeking the designation to allow owners to register the vehicles and use them on Connecticut roads.
The Waterbury Republican-American reports the DMV sent a letter to Polaris last week saying the Slingshot more closely resembles an automobile, a designation that would require it to meet more stringent safety standards.
The DMV has suggested Polaris go to the state Legislature to create a new classification for the vehicle.
The state definition of a motorcycle excludes vehicles that have an enclosed driver’s seat and an enclosed motor, and the Slingshot has both.

Movie theater concessions may be pricey, but buying them could save you money in the long run. Researchers say eating popcorn or other snacks reduces the effectiveness of cinema advertising. They hypothesize that the process of chewing interferes with “subvocal pronunciation,” an automatic moving of the lips and mouth to silently pronounce the name of what is being advertised, that seems to help imprint the advertiser’s message in our minds.

If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too.

Spam is now a ubiquitous part of the Internet, but that was not always the case. Early in the Internet age, two enterprising immigration lawyers—Laurence Canter and Martha Siegel—opened the floodgates of unwanted online commercial solicitation when they posted an ad for their services on thousands of Usenet newsgroups. Though not the first Usenet spam, the “Green Card Lottery” notice was the first to be commercial in nature and ushered in the modern era of Internet spam. What became of the duo? More… Discuss
Will Waikiki’s International Market Place be razed, renovated or left as is?

You ask. We answer.
HAWAII Magazine reader Patricia Renze from New York, NY, writes:
What’s the status of the International Market Place renovations in Waikiki? I have spent many a happy day walking around and talking with all of the vendors. I hope the project has been shelved, as I love the Market Place just the way it is.
Well, Patricia, you’ll be happy to know that Waikiki’s International Market Place is staying the same. For now at least.
A $150 million overhaul of the 4.5 acre banyan-tree-shaded property in the heart of Waikiki has been postponed indefinitely, say Market Place officials. Development plans will be revisited sometime after 2010, but there’s no certainty of what will become of the open-air bazaar.
The planned redevelopment of the property has sparked protest from residents and visitors. A revitalized market place would come at the expense of the dozens of small retail booths that sell all manner of mostly foreign-made Hawaii tchotchkes—from plastic tiki statues and discount aloha wear to writhing hula girl lamps and wood carvings.
The International Market Place has been a Waikiki attraction for decades. Restaurateur Donn Beach—owner of the now long-gone Don the Beachcomber restaurant chain—once famously perched his office in the sturdy branches of the market place’s massive banyan tree.
Since the International Market Place’s 1957 opening, there have been no major renovations to the property. The newest building on the property was erected in 1970. But property developers have coveted the shopping district’s central Waikiki location for almost as many years as the Market Place has been open.
Landowner Queen Emma Foundation’s latest plan for site—originally slated for a 2005 start—called for razing most of Market Place’s familiar tropical facade, making way for more upscale shops and restaurants, a storytelling center and an entertainment pavilion. Construction delays and the souring economy have stalled the project.
We’ll keep you posted on what happens next here on HawaiiMagazine.com.
