Pacific Magazine Suspends Publication

Floyd Takeuchi (CPIS MA, 1977), publisher of Pacific Magazine, announced that Pacific Magazine has suspended all operations as of 1 January 2009. According to Takeuchi, the global financial crisis has had a severe impact on the magazine's operations, "making it unfeasible to continue operations at the level of quality that we expect in our publication." Pacific Magazine began publishing in 1976. [Adapted from the Pacific News From Manoa No. 4]
