That statement is especially true if you’re an American woman: 58% of women say they are more attentive to politics compared to 46% of men.

  In the wake of the 2017 Marco Polo condo fire, it has come to the public's attention that many of Honolulu's high rise residential buildings do not have sprinkler systems. Fire officials said that had there been a sprinkler system in place, the Marco Polo fire would have been doused in a matter of minutes. Today on Town Square we’ll look more closely at the fire code, the sales implications for condos without sprinklers and how high rise residences without sprinklers might get them.
