Heartbeat of tradition; 53rd annual Merrie Monarch Festival kicks off today
Monarch since the 2006 death of beloved kumu hula Nina Maxwell, Maxwell-Juan’s mother and the wife of noted Hawaiian activist and cultural specialist Charles Kauluwehi Maxwell Sr. Maxwell-Juan will bring wahine.
Another notable return is Nani Lim Yap, kumu hula of Halau Manaola of Kohala. Lim Yap was co-kumu, with sister Leialoha Lim Amina, of Na Lei O Kaholoku. That halau captured the wahine overall titles in 2005 and 2006.
The sisters have gone their separate ways, with Lim Amina continuing with the original halau. Lim Yap will bring the wahine of her new halau, named for her son, a prominent fashion designer, for the first time.
One question looming over this year’s competition is: Will the overall winning halau be wahine for the first time in five years? It’s a fair question with neither last year’s overall winner — Na Kamalei O Lililehua, under the direction of kumu hula Robert Uluwehi Cazimero — nor 2014’s overall winner — Ka Leo O Laka I Ka Hikina O Ka La, under the direction of kumu hula Kaleo Trinidad — entered this year.
The last time a wahine halau took the overall title is in 2011, when Halau O Ke‘alaokamaile, a Maui halau under the direction of kumu hula Keali‘i Reichel, also took the wahine kahiko and wahine overall titles. They will not be in the competition this year.
The only other wahine halau to win the overall competition title in the past decade is Hula Halau ‘O Kamuela, an Oahu halau under the direction of na kumu hula Kau‘ionalani Kamana‘o and Kunewa Mook that took the overall crown in 2008. Always strong, they won the wahine overall title and took first place in hula kahiko and fourth place in hula ‘auana last year.
Jasmine Kaleihiwa Dunlap, representing Hula Halau ‘O Kamuela, also won last year’s Miss Aloha Hula title, although the prestigious solo hula award doesn’t count in the group competition.
Even without Cazimero’s and Trinidad’s halau, the kane field is loaded, as usual.
One contender is Hilo’s Halau Hula ‘O Kahikilaulani. Under the direction of kumu hula Nahoku Gaspang, the halau founded by the late kumu Rae Fonseca tied Trinidad’s halau for second place in overall and kane overall last year. The halau’s hula kahiko will be a mele “honoring the people of Waipio,” Gaspang said, and its hula ‘auana is the Mary Kawena Puku‘i and Maddy Lam cha-lang-a-lang classic, “Ku‘u Sweetie.”
“I always tell my kids whatever we do, it’s not about winning,” Gaspang said. “It’s about keeping the culture alive. If you win, it’s a feather in your cap, but we just have to work harder again.”
Other kane halau in the mix include Kawaili‘ula, under the direction of Chinky Mahoe, which won the overall title in 2013; Halau Na Mamo O Pu‘uanahulu, under the direction of Sonny Ching and Lopaka Igarta-De Vera; Ke Kai O Kahiki, under the direction of La‘akea Perry; and Maui’s Halau Kekuaokala‘au‘ala‘iliahi, under the direction of ‘Iliahi and Haunani Paredes.
All performances will be judged by an entirely new panel this year. The seven stage-side arbiters are: Keith Awai, Ainsley Halemanu, Lahela Ka‘aihue, Etua Lopes, Pi‘ilani Lua and Holoua Stender.
Casting a shadow over Merrie Monarch proceedings this year is ohia wilt. There is an informal, voluntary kapu on ohia lehua, one of hula’s prime adornments. The fungal disease has claimed an estimated 34,0... (Hawaii Tribune Herald)Feb 3, 2016

Paris and returned there in 1937. He remained in Paris for the rest of his life.
A family member received this oil on fiberboard from the artist Charles Reiffel (1862-1942). The 18" x 20" painting, Woman Painting Among the Eucalyptus Trees,sold to a phone bidder for $21,240 (est. $8000/12,000).
Four other paintings topped $10,000. One was Charles Reiffel’s circa 1925 oil on fiberboard Woman Painting Among the Eucalyptus Trees, which sold for $21,240. The others each sold for $15,340: a 17th-century Flemish school Portrait of a Family; Early Moon, Cottonwood Grove by Birger Sandzen (1871-1954); and a William Aiken Walker (1839-1921) signed oil on artist board of a cotton field with a woman, child, man, and a basket of cotton.
The top furniture lots came in two distinct flavors: southern and Victorian. The southern entry was an 1800-10 Kentucky Federal sideboard with figured cherry veneer over oak, ash, poplar, cherry, and other secondary woods. Its serpentine front was set off with two tambour-door cabinets, and the case stood on square tapered legs with inlay. Floor bidders kept their paddles down for this one. It sold to the phones for $18,880.
Nine lots of fine Victorian furniture attracted bidders who rarely see good quality Victorian at auction. All of it descended in the family of David Stanton, a wealthy cotton merchant and owner of The Elms in Natchez, Mississippi. The lot that broke the hearts of dealers who had to contend with resale value... (Maine Antique Digest)Feb 2, 2016

"Philodendron" Flowers at the Wolfsonian
The exhibition's oldest object, a book plate from French botanist Charles Plumier, who was commissioned by King Louis XIV to discover medicinal plants in the Americas, is displayed alongside specimens taken mainly from Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, which became an epicenter of research and mass production of these plants for use in the home.
The exhibit shows how native peoples viewed the plant amid a discussion of its initial medicinal uses. The philodendron was used to cure everything from back pain to obesity and was later incorporated as a critical aspect of ritual dress and religious practice. To natives, the philodendron was a sacred icon to be revered and enjoyed.

Amazonian headdresses and figurines display the early uses of philodendrons, while painting and photography usher the plant into the 19th and 20th centuries. A mural study created in 1943, on loan from the Ministry of Finance in Rio de Janeiro, depicts indigenous plants and people in the five ecosystems of their native Brazil, where the plant today is seen as a symbol of natural wealth that allowed the nation to prosper.
But for early European explorers and colonizers, plant life in South America and the Caribbean represented a primitive, romantic symbol that fueled Latin American stereotypes that in many ways persist today. To them, it was a lush region filled with sensual passion, nearly naked savages, and wild tropical vegetation. Drawings of natives making twine ropes, women adorned with fruit baskets, and plants growing wild in jungle landscapes infiltrated the European consciousness.
"Incorporating nature into buildings was a way for Europeans to say, 'Look at our mastery over nature. We can reproduce all of Panama and its nature inside of this building,'?" Larsen says. The Royal Waiting Room at the Imperial Station in Vienna, a photograph taken by Wolfgang Thaler in 1894, captures Austrian architect Otto Wagner's depiction of a philodendron garden as an homage to the Austrian king's love of nature. Notably, he shunned Austrian flora in favor of the more exotic.
In the 1920s, a cultural exchange with Latin America began to blossom among the European and American elite. A Jaguar Hunt in a Mexican Jungle, a mural study commissioned for the estate of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, suggests the infiltration of such an aesthetic in a wealthy American home. The United States was presented with a taste for tropical landscapes, bold color, and exotic fantasies through editorial layouts in magazines such as House & Garden and Holiday.
"The images of Latin America that begin to circulate in the 1930s through the 1960s create a popular trend for integrating plants into the home," Larsen notes. "Nature is a way for Western Americans to convey a tropical identity, but there is no distinction between Mexican culture or Brazilian."
Despite a lack of specific identity, the tropics trend inevitably stuck, and "Philodendron" presents plenty of evidence. There's Dorothy Draper's furnishing line Brazilliance, film clips displaying scenes of Carmen Miranda and her hip-shaking samba, and photos of modern living rooms stuffed with philodendrons, usually placed in corners as a way to bring nature inside. The exhibition also showcases architects such as Richard Neutra and Herzog & de Meuron, who since the 1970s have created modern structures that directly respond to the environment in which they're built. Fashion and industrial designers use the plant as an inspiration for prints, shapes, and embroidery in designs th... (Miami New Times)Jun 9, 2015
Why License a Florist?
The Dartmouth economist Charles Wheelan’s research showed in the late 1990s that respiratory therapists who organized themselves and raised their profession’s dues in order to lobby for licensing laws tended to be more successful in getting these statutes passed. In contrast, consumers who will be affected by the higher fees of, say, a licensed manicurist are unorganized and arguably underrepresented in the political process.
Given these arguments from both the left and the right, can the growth of occupational regulation be reversed or slowed down? Last week, Representative Eric Cantor, Republican of Virginia, said he would ask governors around the country to take a closer look at licensing practices. And during the 2012-13 legislative sessions, Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican, vetoed the licensing of addictive disorder counselors and related occupations. In Indiana, Gov. Mike Pence, a Republican, vetoed the licensing of diabetes counselors and anesthesiologist assistants and dietitians. Both Mr. Branstad and Mr. Pence mentioned that this type of regulation would result in economic losses to consumers, higher prices and less employment.
Occupational licensure has a large and growing impact on labor markets and consumers, but has yet to draw significant public attention or scrutiny. The left and right seem to be in agreement that policy makers need to revisit the process for creating licensure regulations and consider amending or rolling back existing laws in favor of lesser forms of regulations such as certification. Ultimately, we all would benefit from wiser, not more, occupational licensing.
