‘They did an amazing job, we were able to talk about how to safely get the turtle out of the water without causing inadvertent injury.’ 

‘We’re very fortunate that the Coast Guard saw it,’ Thurman said.

Many residents and visitors of Folly Beach ask what they can do to help the sea turtles.  We’ve collected some information from the group’s website so that you can do your part to help the turtles.

At 1.7 pounds, the Q1 is one of the lightest computers we’ve seen–lighter even than the diminutive (though the latter has a keyboard)–but it’s quite a bit larger than the personal electronic devices currently taking up space in our bag. With its two-prong AC adapter, the Q1 has a travel weight of 2.6 pounds.

Measuring 9 inches wide, 5.5 inches deep, and 1 inch thick, the Q1 is about twice the size of the Sony PSP and more than three times the size of the Treo 650.

The LED display lights up when the watch is raised or double-tapped. It has at-a-glance info, or you can swipe to get more (the LED readout’s refresh rate didn’t show up well when photographed, but it looks fine in person).

5)  Remove potential obstacles from the beach at the end of the day.  If you have dug any large play holes in the sand, please fill them back in with sand after you or the kids have had your fun.  Also, take chairs and beach toys off the beach at the end of the day.  Hatchlings are only about two inches long, so they can easily become trapped as they make their way to the ocean.

IR blaster and receiver: Still present is the IR port for controlling the console with a remote, but the Xbox One S also features an integrated IR blaster to control or power on other devices in the room.

Native Hawaiian’s deep love and respect for the Honu is revealed in their mythology, petroglyphs, and artwork. The word for land in the Hawaiian language

is ‘aina honua. The sea turtle is the only indigenous reptile of Hawaii and has become a

significant symbol of the islands.

Because sea

turtles have been hunted by humans across the globe, many of them are now an ‘endangered

species’; a special breed of animal protected by law to live freely in the

Sea turtles have much longer

life than any other species of turtles even hundreds of years.

They are one of the few ancient

species who outlived the dinosaurs. The Honu is honored for the wisdom

that comes with age. It is believed that it can live up to 80 years. sea turtle mandala svg

turtles have evolved about 180 million years ago, long before the Hawaiian Islands were formed.

Additionally, a few touch-sensitive buttons sit above the screen, next to a Web cam. These include volume up and down buttons (but no mute control) and a button for bringing up Samsung’s custom onscreen menu, giving you control over screen brightness, the Wi-Fi connection, and other options.

The mouse pointer is located under your left thumb, while the left and right mouse buttons are under your right thumb, along with a four-way input that works like the arrow keys on your keyboard.

Typing on the Q1 Ultra is a chore, but it does become easier with practice–which is how some people describe iPhone typing. Fortunately, there are other input methods, including a touch screen with stylus and a ThinkPad-style mouse pointer. We appreciate the multiple input methods, but for typing more than a few words, none is particularly easy to use.

An onscreen keyboard is also available, called DialKeys, which puts a semicircular split keyboard in the lower-left and lower-right corners of the screen.

 My deep respect for the ancient wisdom of the Honu inspired the creation

of Honu Boy, a miniature, collectible Hawaiian Menehune doll.

The Sin City actress was also barefaced, avoiding any make-up smudges that could have appeared from taking a dip if she had chosen to have on a full face.

Unfortunately, the housing sports a mere three buttons: power, shutter release, and LCD power/Playback. While this arrangement makes for straightforward use, it also forces you to rely solely on the flash, white-balance, and exposure settings you chose before you put the camera in the housing. Since underwater conditions are a mystery until you splash down, you must guess at how to set up the camera in advance. If you’re wrong, you have to get out of the water, dry off the housing, and start over.
