Asked in Job Interviews, Salary and Pay Rates, Hawaii

How do you answer 'What can you offer us that other people cannot' in a job interview?

User Avatar
I can easily offer you what others cannot, i.e. my ability to use whatever knowledge, talents and abilities I possess, no other person can do this. More input from FAQ Farmers: * I posses the ability of speaking 3 languages, im very patient person and very responsible for my action. * I'm very hard working and am quickly able to adapt and learn in different situations Alternate answer - You can only speak to what YOU can offer the company. Unless you know the strengths and weaknesses of all the other people who are interviewing for the position, you cannot speak to what you can offer that they cannot. You should start your response with something like "I'm sure other candidates who are being interviewed possess many strengths and can offer much to this company, however as I don't know these individuals, I can only speak to what I can offer this company", and then respond as suggested in the first answer. By preempting your response in this manner, it will let the interviewer know that you don't make potentially inaccruate assumptions and that you're a team player.

Asked in Hawaii, Volcanoes

How do volcanoes affect Hawaii?

User Avatar
Hawai'i was formed from volcanoes. The shape of the islands (volcanic mountains) affects the weather. Volcanic activity causes eartquakes, eruptions on the Big Island cause it to continue to grow, cause fires, close roads. Gasses from the volcanoes can cause vog (volcanic smog) and volcanoes have produced fertile soil in Hawai'i.

Asked in Daylight Saving Time, Arizona, Hawaii

Why does Arizona not have Daylight Saving Time?

User Avatar
When Congress passed the Uniform Time Act in 1966, Arizona tried observing daylight savings for a year and decided to not observe it after much negative reaction. They have never observed daylight savings since. Think about it: if you were in the desert, the last thing you would want is extra daylight. Because of the hot climate, adding an extra hour of daylight would cause more of an energy crunch with AC working longer and harder. ( This part of the answer is retarded cause you are just changing the time, not magically moving the sun to make the daylight longer. The days are gonna be longer in summertime because the earth has tilted on its axis and we are receiving more light and you are gonna use the same amount of energy anyway. DST is just a way for big businesses to capitalize on the more sunlight during these months, Arizona just realized this was BS and refused to comply) Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time (MST) year-round. The only exception in Arizona is the Navajo Nation, in northeastern Arizona, which does observe Daylight Saving Time.
Asked in Hawaii, Lakes and Rivers

What is Hawaii's most famous river?

User Avatar
The Wailua river on Kauai is the largest river in all of Hawaii, but the most controversial is the Waiahole stream on Oahu. The stream naturually ran from the Koolau Mountains through the Waiahole Valley and emptied into Kaneohe Bay. It fed many of the taro patches found throughout the valley. In 1995, the stream was diverted to feed many of the Leeward Oahu agricultural areas. In 2012, nearly 20 years later, the water rights over the stream is still a hotly contested issue with both windward and leeward Oahu farmers fighting over who should have the water.

Asked in Hawaii, Income Taxes, Lotteries

What percentage of tax do you have to pay on a large lottery win?

User Avatar
Depending on your other income and the amount of your winnings, your federal tax bracket can go as high as 39.6%. Your lottery winnings might also be subject to state income tax. So depending on where you live, your total tax bill could exceed 50%. You don't get any capital gains rate break for lottery winnings, nor is there any income averaging to help lower your tax bill. If you win more than $5,000 in the lottery, 28% must be withheld from your winnings for federal income tax purposes. You can do a google search 'taxes on lottery' to get more info specific to your situation. 0% in Canada! YES In US it would all be taxable as ordinary, that is any other income, and effectively be taxed at whatever your personal rate ends up being. That means it is taxed like any other income (albeit not subject to FICA). Many have tried to call it a capital gain or investment gain, but that has always lost in court. If you are a professional gambler, there may be other considerations. This is actually a very well decided area of tax law everywhere. (Remember Oprah audience...the entire value of the cars they were given was taxable...in fact the money they were then given to pay the tax on it was taxable). You do not have to declare winnings as income in Australia either. So because it is not classed as income no tax is paid on it.
