Anna Fifield, "Guam: Complicated landscape as some push for independence while marines prepare for buildup," Pacific Islands Report
"“This American territory is not enjoying democracy, where citizens can determine who their leader will be and what laws will be put upon them,” said Republican Gov. Eddie Calvo, who has called a vote for November on Guam’s political status. “It’s up to our people to decide which way to go: whether to be fully in union with the United States or to chart a separate course.”

A “decolonization commission” is set to report to Calvo next month on whether to proceed with the plebiscite, which would give Guamanians three alternatives to their current status as a U.S. territory. That status — shared by Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — confers U.S. citizenship on people born here but does not give them the right to vote in presidential elections or a voting representative in Congress.

“Guamanian soldiers have gone to fight in countries so they can have democracy and vote, yet we have never voted for the person who sends us to war,” the governor said."

The vote would not be binding — only Congress can change Guam’s political status — but would be symbolic of the territory’s sentiment.

The issue has been simmering for years but returned to the political front burner with the Pentagon’s preparations to relocate thousands of troops stationed on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa to here."

Luc Vrolijks, "Disaster Resistant Housing in Pacific Island Countries," South Pacific Disaster Reduction Programme, March 1998
Direct link to the PDF (42 MB) (the website version is awful):

Shows how to construct or reinforce buildings in cyclone- or earthquake-prone regions. Detailed instructions on bracing (including the use of wire or cane instead of metal straps), types of nails, foundations (including how to attach an anchor beam on foundation posts instead of using concrete footings), walls, and roofing. Excellent value.
