A European best-seller since 1954, finally in English. An extraordinary tale set in an extraordinary land. The archives of one the oldest Spanish cities in the Americas, Cumaná, in today’s Venezuela, record a strange case: of a European renegade named Yan/John/Juan: who in the early eighteenth century “went native” and rose to prominence as a military commander among the Orinoco Indians. His name was John Bober. He was a third-generation Polish-American from Virginia. And his adventure began here: as a castaway on an uninhabited island off the Spanish Main. This is his story. Arkady Fielder (1894-1985) was a Polish writer, journalist, and adventurer. He wrote 32 books translated into 23 languages. He traveled broadly but had a special attachment to the region of the Orinoco where he returned repeatedly, and to the Arawak Indians of the delta from whom he first heard the tale of the the White Jaguar.

He excelled at keeping his emotions carefully hidden. Then she became his everything. Nothing was the same. He’d do anything to protect her…anything.

Influencers… social media gurus… They come and go. Plato has been trending for the last 2,000 years. Why? The last 170 years have seen a rapid expansion in human thought and technology. It’s strange to think there was a time when you couldn’t instantly communicate with anyone. Man is no longer defeated by distance. Anywhere you think of going, there’s a form of transport to get you there. People enjoy greater access to prosperity, equal opportunity, and life-saving medical care. The answer to any question is just a click away. Yet, we seem more lost than ever. The interconnectivity of modern life has left many people feeling overwhelmed. Today, we wrestle with the consequences of information saturation.

Published in Nature Communications, the study provides supporting data on how today’s modern world hurts the quality of information we consume. But beyond that, it can also lead to insights on modernity’s negative effects on our critical thinking, decision-making, and even empathy.

Add a hefty dose of jealousy and betrayal, it’s the ultimate recipe for disaster. Revenge…could it really be the sweetest of sins?

Like a goddamn vendetta, it could only be settled until the opponent no longer lives and walks this earth.
