2013 Presentations

Hot Spots Faculty 2013
 
Each year for over a quarter of a century, our Hot Spots Ohana gathers in late August for a long weekend.   Then we disperse like leaves scattered in the wind.  Hiroko Arai shared with us some haiku of her mother's.  As I reviewed her talk, one of them seemed to refer to our annual convocaton.

Note: The large size of many of the files makes it difficult to upload them,  Some, like Dr. Arai's haiku presentation suffer from compression artifacts.
