The Island of MolokaiMolokai Island
Part of the island of Molokai in Hawaii is looking for 260 million dollars.
Vendor GL Ltd. is shipping Molokai ranching country, which covers almost the whole west side of the island - after domestic resistance to develop. Most of the west side of the island of Molokai, Hawaii, is being sold for 260 million dollars. Molokai Rand, the 55,575 hectare plot covers 35% of the island's countryside and includes 20 leagues of coast, a variety of lonely sandy shores, ranchland and timber.
The Molokai is a country island, without large resort, few properties and only a few local cuisine. During 2003, the former Molokai Manor suggested a blueprint to sell 200 properties for luxurious houses, build a new property and donate 26,000 acre to a Land Trusts, said Kah Meng Ho, CFO of Singapore owned GL Limited, a Singapore owned holdings that became the mother corporation of the Manor since mid-2000.
The island residents were protesting by sending out signals against the plans, expressing disagreements at design sessions and setting up a "resistance camp" near the site, said Karen Holt, managing secretary of the Molokai Community Service Council. To concentrate on its hotels in London, the firm has chosen to divest.
Sellers and brokers believe that the purchaser will be a natural person. "We are not looking for a purchaser who wants to buy with developing privileges as a contingency," said stockbroker Scott Carvill of Carvill Sotheby's International Realty in Oahu. Although her group does not defend the island, Ms. Holt said the fellowship would probably be protesting against a "traditional developer", but not against a consumer.
The Molokai Island R-factor
Raindrops impact is quantified by the Raindrops Eroding Factor (R-factor), which mirrors the amount and speed of flow associated with the pour. One of the paramters of the RUSLE (Revised Unified Soil Loss Equation) for estimating the ESD. It is a grid display of the R-factor from istoerodent cards that have been released in Agriculture Handbook Number 703 (Renard et al.,1997).
Serodents shown on a Molokai Island chart were digitised, then readings between these routes were determined by means of straight-line inversion.
