Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

The following collection of archival and oral historical-consultation records pertaining to Waikamoi Preserve and the greater watershed of the Haleakala mountain lands on the island of Maui, was compiled by Kumu Pono Associates LLC, at the request of The Nature Conservancy-Hawaii. This study provides The Nature Conservancy and its partners in management of the Waikamoi Preserve, with a cultural assessment of the Waikamoi Preserve, as required by State review laws governi...

1848, Kamehameha III granted fee-simple interest of Kalialinui to a chiefly steward, Kamaikaaloa (Kamaikaaloa), who held the land through the remainder of his lifetime, and subsequently conveyed it to his heirs. Kalalawalu—daughter of Kamaikaaloa and Kealohaaukai—and her husband, Douglas Panee, sold the land of Kalialinui to Haleakala Ranch in 1888. Most of Kalialinui, including the land that became the Waikamoi Preserve, has been held by Haleakala Ranch since that t...

Na Mele Aimoku

By: Hawaiian Historical Society

The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most have long been out of print, and access to surviving editions is generally limited to libraries and private collections. We hope that making these texts accessible will foster the use and appreciation of the Hawaiian language, encourage the buildin...

Waters, skies, and feelings. A photoalbum

By: Florentin Smarandache

“During my many trips around the world, I sometimes captured images of waters and skies, mostly in conjuction, and associated them with not very common English words – in an attempt to describe the instant feelings which the visual sceneries transmitted to me. In this photoabum, I amalgamated images from a trip to France and England made in May – July 2010, and from two trips to Central America (Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua in December 2010 - January 2011; and Dominica...

Neutrosophic Evolution as extension of Darwin’s Evolution: The Cav...

By: Florentin Smarandache

This photoalbum presents images from the caves the author visited in the Southwestern United States, and wants to popularize the theory of neutrosophic evolution (degrees of evolution, indeterminacy, and involution), offering new evidences in favor of it, extracted from biospeleology.

During the process of adaptation of a being (plant, animal, or human), to a new environment or conditions, the being partially evolves, partially devolves (degenerates), and partially is indeterminate i.e. neither evolving nor devolving, therefore unchanged (neutral), or the change is unclear, ambiguous, vague, as in neutrosophic logic. Thank to adaptation, one therefore has: evolution, involution, and indeterminacy (or neutrality), each one of these three neutrosophic c...

Dor. Fotoalbum

By: Florentin Smarandache

“România este țara mea. M-am născut, am crescut, am învățat în România. Când am hotărît să plec din țara mea, nu de dânsa am fugit, ci de relele care o cuprinseseră. În lagăr, în exil și în toată lumea pe unde am străbătut, am rămas român. Limba română e limba în care merg, în care matematicesc, în care dorm (și nu prea), în care mă sfădesc și mă împac cu gândurile mele, cu mine, cu lumea și cu ceilalți. Căci, mai presus de orice, limba română e, pentru mine, limba sent...
