Paving Paradise American tourism to Hawaii has increased by 14.2 percent in just two years. This dramatic increase in tourism seems to be a beneficial boost for Hawaii's economy; however, the increasing rate of tourism is harming the native people of Hawaii. While the Hawaiian economy is experiencing one of its most fruitful years, the native Hawaiian people are suffering from job loss, poverty, depression, and an overall "cultural destruction" (Trask 260). Haunani-Kay Trask uses rhetoric to discuss these harmful effects in her essay "Tourist, Stay Home" in order to persuade her readers into believing that tourism can actually be a bad thing for an economy. On the other hand, in his article "Surf's Up for the Economy in Hawaii," Jim
Dream of a Lifetime Going to the NBA As I walk onto the court my heart is pumping faster than I can count, because my team is playing the final game in the state tournament for the 1A-D11 championship title. I'm so excited I get to experience what i've been waiting for my whole life. My coach tells me I’m starting, and I’m nervous that we will lose the championship that we’ve worked eight years for. The career I would most like to pursue is playing in the NBA, because this dream career influences me to get good grades, spend time in the gym, and stay out of trouble. I have always dreamed about playing in the NBA since the first time I ever picked up a basketball. I don’t like school very much, but I need to do well to make it in the big leagues.
Hawaii and Tourism Hawaii is located in the central Pacific Ocean; it is one of the many islands in Polynesia. It is composed of eight main islands: Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui and the Island of Hawaii, the island of Hawaii being the largest island of the eight (see attached map). According to the census bureau, as of 2014, Hawaii ‘s population is approximately 1,419,561 with Native Hawaiians forming only 10% of the population; in order to be considered a Native Hawaiian you must have one native great-grandparent (2014 United States Census Bureau). Hawaii’s official languages are English and Hawaiian. Hawaii was first occupied by people coming from the Marquesas Islands approximately 1500 years ago followed by people from Tahiti. In 1778 Captain Cook arrived in Hawaii finding approximately 300,00 Hawaiians there. In the 1850’s Hawaiians worked in sugar cane plantations. In 1983 Queen Liliuokalani was deposed and in 1900 Hawaii became a United States Territory. Fifty-nine years later, in 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. Tourism plays a huge role in Hawaii’s culture; it is a big part of its economy and social life. This paper will be discussing Hawaii’s tourism and it’s effects.

In my opinion, reading 1 (Hawaii: The Land of Many) is more informative and useful for a person who knows nothing about the sugar plantations in Hawaii in the 1800s. I would suggest using reading 1 because it talks about the entire history, as opposed to reading 2 which talks about the shutting down of the plantations today. This reading teaches the reader about the sugar plantations and the life of the laborers that worked on these sugar plantations. Reading 1 states that the sugar industry boomed in the 1800s which caused the need of plantation workers. They had recruits different countries that lived on the plantation. Laborers had to sign a contract saying they would work for a certain amount of time. Plantation supervisors whipped those

Today, hard and back breaking labor isn’t required for people to get everything. However, what if today’s citizens lived back in the 1800s, in Hawaii? In that time, the sugar plantation was growing rapidly. The economy was booming, and more workers were required to meet the production of sugar. As a result, King Kamehameha IV along with the government decided to import foreign workers. Although this solved the economy problem, it came with a cost of the way plantation workers lived. Plantation life in Hawaii in the 1800s was difficult. The living conditions were poor. The labor was harsh and grueling. There were also unequal racial and gender treatments.
The ideal vacation for me is somewhere nice and warm. A vacation where you are suppose to be able to unwind and relax. Being around somewhere that isn't school related or teachers. For me, a way to relax is not to be around loud things, like little kids and preferably somewhere peaceful. A good vacation is somewhere near a nice beach, where I can have a delicious barbeque while chilling with some music. If there was a break, I would choose to go to Hawaii or somewhere with a breathtaking view so I can take many pictures.
Everyone wants to go to Hawaii, well, unless they don't like the perfect weather, gorgeous oceans, and beautiful plants. When I found out I was going to Hawaii for the first time, I almost died, figuratively speaking of course. When people say they almost die, it is almost immediately assumed that they are joking. Before going on my dream vacation, I could say that I was always being over dramatic when saying that, but in January of 2013, it all changed.
