Teach me things that are honest, things that are daring, things that are clear.
I have a Ph.D. and a Masters Degree in Philosophy from the University of Hawaii. To get a better idea of who I am, here are some of my favorite pictures:
Age 5 with my Grandfather and his tractor. I felt very special
learning about farming and being able to ride on the tractor.
With my Mom and grandfather. He was a farmer. She was a dancer and college professor.
Ronnie Pine at age 3. My mother said I looked like Shirley Temple and no one wanted to cut my hair.
Left to right, Ronnie, Earle and Brian Pine. A cherished
by my mother.
A cherished family vacation spot. The Family Cabin in the Seven Oaks area, in the San Bernardino mountains.
In Burma, the hill-tribe village of Pain-ne-bin on the Shan Plateau. As a former high ranking tour guide in Burma, my wife raised money from tourists to build a school at this village. Otherwise the children have to walk 7 miles one way to the nearest school. This is her second school project.
My wife, Myitzu Pine. Myitzu has a B.S. degree in Physics from
Yangon University, Burma. She also has a degree in early
education. She hopes to continue to build
schools in Burma (see link) and
run her own preschool. Currently she is working at Pali
Pre-school and pursuing a degree in mathematics.
Hypatia Akary Pine, 2 months old. Hypatia was named after the
famous mathematician, philosopher, and librarian of the Library of
Akary is Burmese for "women leader" or "queen."
