People in the entertainment industry are reacting to the Dallas police shooting.  Actor Kevin Hart posted video comments on Instagram.

You know actor George Takei from his famous role as Lieutenant Sulu in the original 'Star Trek' series.  He's been an outspoken LGBT activist.  Well, there's news that the character he played will be portrayed as gay in the new "Star Trek' movie.  Takei told the Hollywood reporter he's "delighted that there's a gay character," however that's not how the show's creator, Gene Roddenberry, envisioned Lt. Sulu.  He said quote "Unfortunately, it's a twisting of Gene's creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it's really unfortunate."

Hilo is the home of Kuana Torres Kahele but it's also the home of something else that he left on a video on Facebook:  he says on Facebook, "Kani ana ka leo o ke koki. Ka manu hokio o ke ahiahi. If you've never gotten to see or hear Hilo's own, manu hokio (coqui). Then here ya go!"
translated he says the if you haven't heard the voice of the frog, here he is in the evening time; he is saying this in a very fun and respectful manner...

From Jake Shimabukuro:  A throwback Thursday Photo!  He says "This is my 8th grade banquet photo. I chose to take a picture with my ukulele over my date. Haha!"

Hawaii Five-0 just had their blessing for the start of Season 7; no sooner than that happens, the kahea or call goes out for new faces!  Brent Anbe from the Hawaii Five-0 casting office posted this picture for the open casting call this Sunday.  As you can see they're looking for looks of all kinds.  He also posted "IF YOUVE BEEN ON PREVIOUS SEASONS YOU'RE STILL ON FILE AND DON'T NEED TO ATTEND. YOU'RE GOOD!"
