They believe that someday, way off in the future, something like the Matrix will control our lives and we will have to ght our way back to freedom. That was yesterday. It was one of those days. Tomorrow doesn’t look so good, either. Curiosity creates confusion, which then blossoms to full frustration. Where is that fax??!? I was very upset with my stubborn, sel sh, stingy little fax machine. I was waiting for two very important pieces of information. I even e-mailed the people sending the faxes and had them send it again (one was 29 pages long). You can imagine the scene in your own of ce. Three of us huddled around a seemly complex contraption pushing buttons, turning it off and on, checking paper, checking settings, making sure the phone cords plugged in and then one by one slowly sulking away in defeat. If I ever catch you in one of these moments I might say, “E. S. T. O.” It’s an acronym I came up with while serving in the Army. I thought, we have acronyms for everything else, why not this? It means Equipment Smarter Than Operator and I nd it to be too frequently true. That day we were all ESTO. So, we nally gave in and called the maintenance technician and he gave the machine a good hard look (I wanted to give it a good hard kick in the …). The machine gave a menacing look back as if to say, “You’re never going to see that fax.” Just then, the tech saw what he was looking for, a chink in the armor of this de ant device. He announced with simplicty, “Your fax option was disabled. I turned it back on.” The feeble fax machine humbly began spitting out our papers. In the con ict between man and machine, we notched one more victory. But who’s to say that one day, the machines won’t form a union and deny us our freedoms and take away our liberty. One more reason we should all stick together and get along. Benjamin Franklin is credited with saying, “We must hang together or assuredly we will hang separately.” United we stand, divided we’re all ESTO.

Saturday, Aug. 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 Hot sun makes cool refrigerator R o i r e s i d e n t s m a k e Roi residents make s o l a r u n i t f o r E n n i b u r r solar unit for Enniburrperformance. We use a single panel that produces approximately three times the amount of power that the refrigerator needs. This allows the battery to charge up quickly. Then we added a regulator device that will shut the power down to the battery so as not to overcharge and ruin the battery,” Logozzo said. “The battery itself is a maintenance-free, deep-cycle marine-grade unit. There is also a battery condition indicator to let you know the charge state of the unit. There are also two lights that come with the system to provide light for the evening meal, all the components are made for the boating industry so it will last in the salt air environment. We kept in mind that this had to be as maintenance free as possible and, because there are no moving parts, the system is highly reliable,” he explained.Logozzo and Woods said they currently have one refrigerator in operation on Third Island and are in negotiations with a prominent business from Third Island to bring out 10 more. They also have one in Key West because of the interest in using them for emergency refrigeration during hurricane season.“We think this will affect the Marshallese on Third Island in a positive way. This now gives them the ability to store fresh meat and cool drinks. We hope that someday they won’t have to haul ice home everyday just to get through the night. It should have a positive affect on the local economy in the fact that the small general store will have the ability to sell a wider variety to frozen goods like ice cream, candy bars and milk. These items were not available to Third Island on the weekend. Now they are. It de nitely improves their quality of life,” Logozzo added.When asked how they feel about helping their neighbors, Logozzo said, “It always feels good to be able to help someone or in this case a community. We hope that this technology will spread to the outer islands to help those people too. Also there is research being done on other devices that can be run on solar such as computers and satellite communications and possibly air conditioning. We hope to be able to set up a computer lab in their school complete with Internet access.” B o b L o g o z z o s t a n d s n e x t t o Bob Logozzo stands next to t h e s o l a r p o w e r e d r e f r i g e r a t o r the solar-powered refrigerator h e a n d R y a n W o o d s m a d e f o r he and Ryan Woods made for u s e o n E n n i b u r r use on Enniburr.By Elizabeth Davie ReporterPeople may take some of the luxuries that most Americans have for granted, such as electricity. Some of the neighboring island residents don’t have that option. Residents of Enniburr used to lack the ability to operate a refrigerator until recently.Bob Logozzo, a radar receiver technician III at the ALTAIR, and Ryan Woods, a digital technician II at the ALTAIR, developed a solar-powered refrigerator for use on Third Island. “It was last year after the ECCF [Enniburr Children’s Christmas Fund] coconut cup race here on Roi. Bob [Logozzo] had built a remote-controlled coconut with a motor and rudder. The Marshallese saw this and asked him if he could build [something] that could do something about electricity for refrigeration on Third Island. So we started to do research on possible solutions and came up with this,” said Woods. So how does it work? According to Logozzo and Woods, the advances in solar cells and refrigeration are really what made this possible. “We found a refrigerator that uses semi-conductors instead of a conventional compressor. This is known as the absorption process. The unit will run on 12vdc battery current. So what we did is use a large enough battery to run the unit for three days without being re-charged. This was done in case the weather was bad and the solar panel that charges the battery would not be working at peak


Saturday, Aug. 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Kwaj waters home to many shark species By Paul Hubert Special to the HourglassThere are many species of sharks in the water of Kwajalein Atoll, but divers are most likely to see only four of them: the white-tip reef shark (Trianodon obesus), the black n reef shark (Charcharitrius melanopterus), the nurse shark (Gynglymostoma cirratum) and the grey reef shark (Charcharinus amblyrhinchos).White-tip sharksThe white-tip reef shark (shown above) is probably the most frequently encountered shark in these waters. ThatÂ’s because it typically stays near coral in 30 to 60 feet of water and so do most divers. This shark is grey above, white below and has conspicuous white tips on ns and tail. The body usually has several black spots scattered around the dorsal region. Maximum length is around 7 feet but most are closer to 5 feet. White tips are almost never found far from the coral; they usually swim within inches of the bottom. They are very well equipped to feed on the bottom in the maze of cracks and crevices of the coral and can unerringly nd sh hiding there that have escaped from a spear. Sometimes white tips rest, motionless, on patches of sand in a surge channel, or inside a coral cave. Usually, when they are resting on open sandy areas, they can not be approached closely, but when they are resting under coral, they can often be approached close enough to touch (not recommended). White tips generally ignore divers or investigate them with a cursory approach, perhaps circling once or twice. While this may be unnerving to the divers, these sharks pose little threat and are most unlikely to become aggressive. However, in areas frequented by spear shermen, white-tips may follow divers, hoping for an easy meal. They may approach divers very closely, to the point of contact, but a sharp rap on the The white-tip shark is the most frequently encountered.


Saturday, Aug. 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5See SHARKS, Page 16One of the most common sharks is the nurse shark, which is inoffensive and spends a lot of time snoozing in caves and holes.snout will usually send them skittering away. Spear sherman who carry their catch with them underwater (not recommended) will become well-acquainted with the white tip, which will persistently search for the source of blood and gradually become bolder as it searches. White-tips are commonly eaten by other sharks, such as tigers and silver tips, which may explain their inoffensive behavior. Familiarity breeds contempt, so no matter how many of these sharks a diver may see, it is wise to bear in mind that white-tips have bitten people.Black n reef sharksAnother common shark in the waters of Kwaj is the black n reef shark, locally called “black tip.” They are brown above and white below, with conspicuous black tips on their ns. The rear edge of the tail is black. The back tip on the dorsal n is accented by a pale band below it. A pale, V-shaped, lemon-yellow stripe runs along the shark’s side, tapering to a point behind the pectoral ns. These sharks rarely grow larger than 5 feet and the maximum size is probably less than 6 feet. Black ns are sharks of shallow water. They seem to prefer water about 10 to 20 feet deep, though they sometimes venture out over the drop-off. Very often, adult black ns will cruise water less than 6 inches deep, exposing their ns, tail and back to the air, especially on an incoming tide. These sharks have nervous dispositions. They are very dif cult to approach and usually dart away at the rst movement of the diver. However, they will occasionally investigate a diver, especially if he or she is hidden. While they are attracted to spear shing activities, they do not approach very closely, but dart around the diver, staying about 50 feet away.Nurse sharkNurse sharks are the most inoffensive sharks in these waters. These lethargic, pot-bellied sharks spend their days snoozing in caves and holes in the coral reef. At night, they prowl the bottom, feeding on such slowmoving prey as octopus and conch. As a result of the good life, they are fat and when they move quickly their whole body jiggles. Nurse sharks, which can attain a length of 10 feet, are tawny brown above and white below. The upper tail lobe is much longer than the lower lobe, while the two dorsal ns are nearly equal in size. The head is shaped like a tadpole’s, and there are two small barbells below each nostril. The teeth of the nurse shark are uniquely shaped. Another of the species sometimes encountered in Kwajalein waters is the lemon shark.


Saturday, Aug. 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass World War II exhibit highlights 6 By Mig Owens Assistant editorHistory books traditionally offer battle strategies, statistics and in-depth analyses of major con icts. Mention of the human contribution, beyond the numbers, is often limited to that of military leaders. In contrast, an exhibit to be unveiled next week at Building 905 will pay respect to the individual Soldiers ghting in the Battles of Kwajalein and Roi-Namur, by focusing on both the American and Japanese eld Soldier through artifacts and photos. Leslie Mead, cultural resource manager and archeologist, said the purpose of the exhibit, the rst in a series, is to highlight Soldiers on Kwajalein in 1944 and 1945 “as individuals.” The exhibit introduces two Soldiers, Pfc. Michael Sorka, an American Soldier, and Hideo Watanabe, a Japanese soldier. It further shows what kinds of everyday objects they might have used and the images captured of individual soldiers during the course of the battles. “The project is not contract related, so it’s a labor of love,” Mead said. Work on the exhibit came as a result of the fact that there is currently no place to adequately display artifacts found in the Kwajalein Atoll, she said. Assisting in the effort is Maria Geeslin, exhibit assistant, who plans to study archeology in college. Because space is limited, artifacts are arranged in a display case around which photos will hang. Photos displayed are from among 600 Mead obtained on a trip to the U.S. National Archives. Colors used in the case represent the uniforms of the two Soldiers – green for U.S. and khaki for Japanese. Featured artifacts from the U.S. Soldier are an M1 steel helmet and fragment of a helmet cover, pieces from a mess kit, a U.S. Navy coffee mug and spoon and a rst aid kit, among other items. Also displayed is what Mead calls the “single most commonly found item on island” – a 1944 Coke bottle. “We have hundreds of them,” she said. Less common is an M1918 canteen on which several owners’ names are etched. “Most soldiers etched their names in their individual canteen, but this one has symbols and is stamped and engraved with names on both the front and back,” she said. “Usually, there is only one name.” She concluded that the canteen may have been found and reused. Artifacts representing the Japanese soldier include a beer and water bottle, a helmet, an Imperial Navy ceremonial sake cup, an incense holder, tea cup, coin and part of a gun-cleaning kit. The shell casings displayed, Mead explained, come from a single gun emplacement on Roi-Namur, to the south of the blockhouse on the east side of the island. “This was where Col. Dyess, Medal of Honor recipient, was help up by a 13 mm Japanese machine gun pillbox on the rst night of battle,” she said, explaining that the next morning he called up tanks for support.The Japanese 13 mm shell casings were color coded red or black, red signifying armor-piercing incendiary rounds and black signifying anti-personnel rounds. Twenty-seven percent of the rounds collected were red, which Mead said were used by the Japanese when the tanks Dyess summoned arrived. “The tanks put the machine gun nest out of action within minutes,” she explained. The ve American 50caliber shell casings are assumed to have been red into the nest as part of the mop up after the tanks had dealt with the pillbox.“When you get things in good context, you can reconstruct a sequence of events,” she said. “It’s an interesting way of looking at history on the ground.”Unfortunately, she said that when the site on Roi was excavated in 1994 by Dr. Carl Kuttruff, the excavation site was left open overnight and 50 of the shells were stolen.“Those could have changed the interpretation of the site,” she said, adding that people don’t understand the importance of such things when they remove artifacts from where they are found. The exhibit opens Thursday and is available to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Appointments may be made by calling 58867. The exhibit is not intended to be permanent, as others will follow.Mead said that the next exhibit, which is slated to be completed by November, will focus on what life was like on Kwajalein from 1946 to 1952.“The residents of Kwajalein island, although a transient population, have a history all their own,” Mead said. “Archaeology, photographs and documents illustrate that history in a very direct and personal way. As recently as 49 years ago, everybody on this island lived in twostory wood barracks and worked in Quonset Huts…which makes us aware that despite the local saying that ‘Nothing changes here, it is Kwajalein’…we do change and remake ourselves and our history every day.”A canteen etched with names is one of the World War II artifacts on display.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. The Interpreter An overheard conversation leads a woman into a dark world of deadly intrigue in this political thriller. Silvia Broome (Nicole Kidman) is an African migr who works as an interpreter at the United Nations. One of the languages she understands is Ku, a dialect spoken in her home country of Matobo. One day, as the General Assembly auditorium is being evacuated for a routine security sweep, Broome overhears a man speaking in Ku, who makes a cryptic statement that could be interpreted as a threat against the life of Zuwanie (Earl Cameron), Matobo’s controversial ruler. Secret Service agent Tobin Keller (Sean Penn) is brought in to investigate Broome’s story, and it isn’t long before he’s convinced that she knows more than she’s willing to tell. As Keller and his partner, Dot Woods (Catherine Keener), dig deeper into Broome’s story as well as her past, they discover a shocking tale of violence and corruption tied to Zuwanie’s regime. The Interpreter was directed by Sydney Pollack, who also appears in a brief supporting role. Sin City The Eisner Award-winning comic series Sin City comes to life in this live-action feature adaptation from director Robert Rodriguez and creator Frank Miller. Interweaving multiple storylines from the series’ history, this violent crime noir paints the picture of the ultimate town without pity through the eyes of its roughest characters. There’s the street thug Marv (Mickey Rourke), whose desperate quest to nd the killer of a prostitute named Goldie (Jaime King) will lead him to the foulest edges of town. Inhabiting many of those areas is Dwight (Clive Owen), a photographer in league with the sordid ladies of Sin City, headed by Gail (Rosario Dawson), who opens up a mess of trouble after tangling with a corrupt cop by the name of Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro). Finally, there’s Hartigan (Bruce Willis), an ex-cop with a heart problem who’s hell-bent on protecting a stripper named Nancy (Jessica Alba). Featuring a who’s who supporting cast that includes Elijah Wood, Brittany Murphy, Devon Aoki, and Nick Stahl, Sin City promises to be one of the most direct translations from page to screen of a comic series, with shots and dialogue adapted straight from the original comic’s panels.The following 32 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

As they lie motionless in the coral, nurse sharks make a tempting target for a diver to harass, but a word of warning. They donÂ’t bite often, but when they do, nurse sharks are very tenacious. On a few occasions, nurse sharks have become extremely agitated when my dive party approached them. They bolted from their lair and furiously darted around the reef. No one in our party had done anything to pester the sharks, but they were obviously unhappy with our company.Grey reef sharksIn contrast to the sluggish nurse sharks, the sleek, powerful grey reefs are the most imposing sharks commonly encountered at Kwajalein Atoll. Grey reefs are among the most studied sharks because of their trademark posturing.Grey reef sharks usually avoid divers. When they are seen, it is usually brie y, at a distance. In areas where they are frequently exposed to spear shing, grey reefs learn to associate divers with easy food and may tag along with a dive party. In areas where diving is uncommon, they may, out of curiosity, approach divers close enough to touch. Grey reefs can be dangerous though. The lighting quickness of these sharks must be seen to be appreciated and when they are excited by spear shing, they will buzz and dart at a diver, turning away at the last instant, or even bumping or biting the spear or the diver in a frenzied effort to grab the sh. They generally will not bite the diver, however; the possibility exists.
