Gigi, a former employee at Tiki's Grill & Bar, recently landed a job as an RN in the ICU at UCLA. In an interview with the restaurant, she shared her thoughts on how working in the hospitality industry, particularly at Tiki's, relates to her career in nursing.
Gigi believes that the restaurant industry, and Tiki's in particular, and nursing have many similarities. During her interview at UCLA, she was asked how working at Tiki's relates to nursing, and she had plenty to say on the topic.
"Customer service, teamwork and collaboration, strong communication, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment are all skills that I developed while working at Tiki's that I can apply to my nursing career," Gigi said. "Tiki's is such a busy and sought-after restaurant, and we're always on our toes 24/7. This has taught me how to use my prioritization skills, sense of urgency, and how to provide excellent customer service."
Gigi went on to explain that these skills will be crucial in her nursing career, as she will need to provide excellent patient care. She believes that working at Tiki's has provided her with a strong foundation for her nursing career.
In conclusion, Gigi believes that working in the hospitality industry, and Tiki's in particular, has a lot of similarities with the nursing profession. She believes that the skills she developed while working at Tiki's will be crucial in her nursing career and that it has provided her with a strong foundation for her nursing career.

The Great ShakeOut was a volunteer exercise for amateur radio operators (HAMs) to test their ability to establish emergency radio communications in the event of a natural disaster. The Hawaii Amateur Radio Emergency Service hosted the drill, which was based on a simulated 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park. The exercise objective was for HAMS with Winlink capability to submit one Did You Feel It? (DYFI) report to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) via Winlink within one hour. The mode used for communication was either VARA FM, VARA HF, Packet, Pactor, or Telnet. The DYFI form could be found in the Winlink Express and submitting the report should take less than ten minutes. The USGS encourages HAMS to participate in this exercise to help provide critical seismic intensity reports in the event of a real earthquake.
Great ShakeOut - This was an exercise to test the ability of volunteer Amateur Radio operators (HAMS) to establish emergency radio communications and send in reports to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) via Winlink.
The exercise was based on a real earthquake that occurred last year off of the Big Island and was felt throughout the State of Hawaii. However, this exercise scenario will be located inland, in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The simulation will be a 7.2 magnitude earthquake occurring at 8:55 a.m. HST resulting in various damages on the Big Island and felt throughout the State of Hawaii. No simulated local tsunami was generated.
The exercise objectives for Hawaii hams with Winlink capability:
Submit one DYFI report to the USGS with a cc: to planners
Submit within only one hour, between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. HST
In the Additional Comments box at the bottom of the form, please indicate how you are submitting the report via what mode, which gateway, and your callsign.
ave fun learning.
The USGS DYFI form can be found in Winlink Express: click on Message, click on New Message, click on Select Template, under Standard Templates, scroll down to USGS, then click on USGS DYFI.txt.
The DYFI form is attached below. Mode to be use will be VARA FM, VARA HF, Packet, Pactor, or Telnet.We hope those with Winlink capability will be able to participate in this easy exercise. It should take less than ten minutes to complete.
In a real earthquake, remember to duck, cover and hold on!
The 2022 Sailboat Race, also known as the Lahaina Returns, was an annual event that took place on Labor Day. The crew of 8, Mark, Kana, Amy, Mack, Michael, Levi, and Hailey, set sail on Puanani, a Beneteau 393, from Honolua Bay on Maui to finish in Kaneohe Bay.
With a length overall of 39.25ft and a beam of 13ft, we had enough crew for the task at hand. Puanani is moored at Kaneohe Yacht Club (KYC) and the crew sailed her up a few days early to be ready for the race.
The Lahaina Return Race is an 80+ mile downwind race that starts in Honolua Bay on Maui's northwest coast and finishes in Kaneohe Bay or Honolulu's Ala Wai Harbor. The race is accompanied by an inshore regatta and a long holiday weekend in West Maui.
The crew tried to check in early on the VHF radio but had little luck as they motor sailed to Honolulu Bay. As different classes of boats started, the crew was trying to get to the bay to line up for the start. They did check in and made it to the start line as the last boat to cross.
The race takes sailors through Honolua Bay, Mokuleia Bay and Lipoa Point, which are part of an area known as the ahupuaa of Honolua, located just north of Kapalua in West Maui.
The fleet immediately started to spread out with a few boats racing side by side doing the dance. And as Capt Mark is known to say. Don’t worry about them the are not in our class as they have no class. It sound better when he says it.
Salt spay was flying as those who were not controlling sails or driving were ask to get there weight on the high side. To help the boat plane faster.
We hit some current a lighter winds for a bit as came up on Mokuho‘oniki is an small island of off Molokai near situated nearby to the Punolohi and Kekua‘ai‘opihi. We were making good time when we hit some heavy surface currents off of Cape Hālawa. Hand Lines we deployed but no fish were caught this year!
The race down the north shore of Molokai, home to one of the most stunning natural wonders in Hawaii: the Kalaupapa Cliff and Mooula Falls. The Kalaupapa Cliff is a massive sea cliff that stretches for over 17 miles along the northern coast of Molokai and is the world's highest sea cliff, towering at over 3,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The cliffs are a sight to behold, with their rugged, jagged edges and deep crevices that have been carved by centuries of wind and waves.
Good conversation and sea shanty songs were improved and made. Our course followed the “rhumbline” that is an imaginary straight line between two marks. Downwind, this represents the shortest distance you can sail and it's generally the fastest to way to get back to the club bar to get a drink,.. So many people think its called the Run Line….
We did have some sail changes but were able to stay on course heading down wind with no tacts required. We did tear a sail as the wind was blasting on and off with massive puffs.
As the sun beat down on us and the sound of the ocean was interrupted by the Coast Guard trying to hail another boat from the fleet on Channel 16 VHF, we started to piece together what was happening. The boat in distress had lost steerage and was not able to control the rudder. Information was spotty at first, but we eventually received an updated report that they were okay and had rigged something up to sail. Later, as they got closer to land, they were able to contact the Coast Guard via cell phone. There were some tense moments while we waited for news.
As Makapu'u Point, the easternmost point on the island of Oahu, came into view, someone shouted "Land Ho!" We were all relieved and excited to see the island.
The view of Oahu from the ocean is breathtaking and gave us a lot of time to reflect on our lives.
The crew of Puanani finished in 5th place in the K Series Standing with a corrected time of 07:17:01. Despite the challenges they faced during the race, we had a great time with friends and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Hawaii. It was a truly memorable experience.
