It was back in August when Evan asked me to pick a Sony product that would enhance my productivity. At first I thought of getting the MFM-HT205 (20” wide screen LCD/TV), which up to now, I still haven’t seen any that matches the specs for the same price. The lowest I’ve seen on Froogle is $679.00, not a very high WAF (wife approval factor) rating but still worth it. After telling Evan this, he said to try and see if I can find a system that’s close to the price range. By the way we started working on Greater Good TV early June and we all became like hyper-threading processors, multi-tasking and all that, pretty exciting. Basically my main responsibilities now are the audios and the soon to be launched online videos, among other things. So from audio to video, thus the hardware upgrades. I was really surprised when Evan told me that he would be getting the RC310G, I found some nice models that would do the job under $1,500 but he said we might as well get the higher end model and the boss was right, overall it’s far out!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a journal and the year is already coming to a close. A lot has happened since July. We’ve been busy doing tapings for the television launch next year, January 2007. Actually we were supposed to launch in September but there was little time to prepare the shows and everyone was rushed and stressed out, so we pushed it back to January. I thought this was a good idea so that we could spend more time on making the shows good.

During the end of September we did a Greater Good Anniversary party at Pearl at Ala Moana Shopping Center. That was a blast. We had approximately 300 people there. The food was great and all of the drinks were very tasty. We had a chance to preview the food and drink the night before at the Hawaii Business Magazine’s Fittest CEO event. Thank goodness we had a chance to go the night before our party because during the party there was no time to enjoy the food and beverages. There were so many things to take care of to make sure that the party operated smoothly. Thank goodness to Hawaii Pacific Entertainment and Lincoln Jacobe who helped with the planning and operations of the party. Without them, I think my stress level would have been much greater. Overall, I thought the party was great and I couldn’t have asked for a better event! It would be awesome to do something like this annually.

GENERAL STEVEN HUMMER - Commanding General, Marine Corps Base Hawai

Brigadier General Steven Hummer carries a handful of experience and knowledge under his belt. His more than three decades in the Marine Corps has brought him to work in different divisions within the Marines, and fairly recently, as a commanding officer of the 1stMARDIV in Operation Iraqi Freedom I.

Brigadier General Hummer has received more than a dozen commendations for his enduring participation in the military. And of all the awards and medals he holds, it is the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal that he considers most important—a proof to the military’s commitment in serving not only the nation, but also the local community and its people.
