The deeper meaning of the Hawaiian 'Ohana'

A friend's use of the term on Facebook caused me to go looking up the connotations of the word. I was familiar with it from Disney's Lilo and Stitch, but I had a suspicion it might mean more than a simple translation for 'family.'

The concept of 'ohana involves creating loving relationships with more than just blood relatives. Embracing 'ohana means developing a sense of familial care and devotion to all members of the human family.

Today's Amazon delivery:

I absolutely love my Duo 2, but for doing any writing beyond quick notes or social media posts, I simply find the typing experience on screen untenable. This Logitech keyboard has a trough for the devices to sit in, and it can be used to connect to up to 3 different devices thanks to the toggle.

So, the idea is that when I am at work on lunch, or out somewhere else with my daily bag, the keyboard unlocks the Duo 2 as a full computer-esque replacement.

Regal Cinemas' owners Cineworld are reportedly filing for bankruptcy in the UK

As reported by The Wall Street Journal, the London-based Cineworld is expected to file for bankruptcy in both the UK and US having amassed $4.8 billion in debt. It operates more than 9,000 screens in 751 locations around the world, including Picturehouse and Cineworld cinemas in the UK and Ireland, Cinema City in Europe, Yes Planet in Israel, and Regal Cinemas in the U.S. It is the second largest theater chain in the world, following AMC, which has weathered post-pandemic issues partly because of becoming a meme stock.
