The reign of madness and terror of the Black Baron

Austrian nobleman, tsarist official, reincarnation of Mahakala, theocrat. The history of Roman von Sternberg and his reign of terror
“I was in Kiev, I saw Warsaw and Budapest (…) Once before, in the past, the knife of your Mongolian horses have walked the streets of those cities. The West is dying, infected by the revolutionary plague. No more principles, no more armies. It’s time to rebuild the empire of the great khan “.
The fall of the Tsar, the Russian Civil War, the tragic end of the Romanovs, the Bolshevik government were perhaps only details in the head of Roman von Sternberg, Austrian nobleman known to history as the Bloody Baron. A name, his, evoking worlds and distant events, but even so: in Russia a little less than a century ago, an Austrian artistocratico, Catholic and Buddhist, he dreamed of rebuilding the Mongol empire.
Roman Nicolaus von Ungern-Sternberg was born in Graz in 1886 from an ancient family of junkers (Prussian military aristocracy) Baltic. Grew up in Tallinn, he enlisted in the Army in the early years of the twentieth century Tsarist. A choice, its common to other noble Germanic: German Levin Bennigsen August, for example, had been one of the best known Russian army commanders during the campaigns against Napoleon.
But in the minds of Roman smoldering something else: much bigger dreams of driving the regiments of Nicholas II, who began to surface in Siberia where, in 1908, was seconded his department and where the young officer came into contact with the Asian culture, in particular with the Mongolian.
After the interlude of the First World War, its leader parable, as bold as ruthless, begins between the lands of Siberia where, to the Gregorij Semenov orders, sided against the revolutionaries of Lenin (who had taken power in October 1917) , however, not failing to fight even against the “whites” of Admiral Alexander Kolchak …
Separated by Semenov in 1920, the head of the Mongolian and Tibetan departments ago en route to Mongolia, after the end of the Qing monarchy (1911), he had been occupied by the Republic of China.
Conquered and liberated Urga Bogdo Khan, the living Buddha, Roman rose to political and religious leader, by imposing on the lands conquered a theocratic regime. Soldier, aristocratic and even gods, for this “fault” of the Dalai Lama who declared emanation of Mahakala, the Great Black of Buddhist culture from six arms and the crown with five skulls.
A reign of madness, of glory and terror raids von Stenberg entered immediately in the collective imagination of the time. Under the banner of the “U”, the Asian riders, modern hordes of the steppe, assaulted villages, the Red Army units and the white one, leaving behind blood and death.
Less than a century before the borders between Iraq and Syria black flags Isis accompany the birth of the Caliphate, another “Black” was building his empire, very religious and ephemeral, in which the Western culture of the Austrian nobility embraced the myth of knights of Genghis Khan.
Ephemeral, because the world had changed and the new state, the Soviet Union, there was no more space to ancient legends, ancestral cults and newly Mahakala.
Betrayed by a klan leader, Baron is delivered into the hands of the Bolsheviks in August 1921. Sentenced to death, before the discharge of the firing squad (he was shot in Novonikolajevsk September 21, 1921, author’s note) swallows of St. George Medal, last act of defiance of the tradition of chivalry junker against the new Republic.
His legacy is lost in time and space, obscured by the long shadows of the Soviet dictatorship and the problems that plague the winners and losers of the Great War.
Forgotten, then, but not quite all. Corto Maltese, who already at Ancona had met Stalin in an unusual role, also crosses the Baron, the adventure Court Sconta called Arcana (there’s also a film adaptation, written by the director Pascal Morelli, author’s note).
So instead, I recalled another character from the novel, Count Pio Filippani Ronconi, academic, Orientalist, Corriere della Sera, a former officer of the SS:
“(The Baron) in his short period of government to Urga (from 2 February to 11 July 1921) tried to transform this moment into a” no time “that would allow the Hutuktus (spiritual leader of the Tibetan Lamaism, author’s note) to perform his spiritual work, freeing it from the external pressure of the two powers that loomed: China of “Masters of War” from the South, and the Bolshevik unstoppable avalanche that moved from the north, from Siberia … “(Article” At one time, a destiny “1987).
Words for many of us incomprehensible, but that well describe the absolute uniqueness of a man so convinced of the feasibility of his dreams to be built follies by well firm foundation in the reality … of the early twentieth century.

I tried to get AIDS on the Internet, and in less than 24 hours I was ready to meet my “donor.” That’s how easy it is

To be honest, when I brought this article to my boss I was hoping it refuses, instead his response was more exciting than when I proposed an interview with a Brazilian supermodel with semi-naked photos supplied. I have to. The first step was to try to understand, through my friend Google, what is the reason that drives these people to practice bugchasing, or “a sexual practice whereby some individuals would practice unsafe sex with HIV-positive individuals, with ‘ deliberate intent of contracting the HIV virus. ”
After I documented by various sources, from CNN documentaries to Wired’s articles, I realized that the theme of this activity related to Bareback (the practice of sexual relations without protection), is the contracting HIV and then have sex total “peace”, and yes, because after contracting a virus since its discovery has killed more than 25 million people you are really quiet.
I started looking for places (virtual) where I could find the Bugchaser; initially they came across Bug Chaser Personal, Mecca of the followers of this “movement”, but I later discovered that the closure has been prepared. Never mind, in less than five minutes I discovered GayBareback, a portal where after registering you can meet “donors” or “seekers.” As well as a showcase for the various profiles, there is a text chat and a video, even if users are connected few, three including myself. I think to myself, “Just as well, it means that there are few interested.”
It was enough to move on Google’s American location to see sites of this kind multiply. Having found that the facilities were always the same, ie “Forum”, “Chat” and “Showcase,” I started to move toward a first approach to some “donor.” The largest community is currently active Poz Convert, and has several hundred active users every day. As a good heterosexual I immediately looked for some damsel with whom understand this question and understand how when you get really real. My enthusiasm has subsided after only five minutes when I realized that I would not have views of vaginas. Not one, not even as a joke.
This practice, dare I say fortunately, seems to be widespread among men, strictly homosexual. Armed with courage I decided to sign up, and after a pretty varied questionnaire that ranged from skin color to being addicted or not, I contacted a guy, this Rick05, where 05 represents hope the day of birth and not the year, that after about six hours he replied. Pretending to live in London, I let him handle it, and the first questions were very general, then move on to much more explicit questions about previous experiences which of course I had not. After a series of electronic correspondences asked me if I’d like to meet him, to even talk about. Since that time I have not responded, but I realized how easy and fast (about 12 hours in my case) to find a “donor” of AIDS.
Conducting further research I could not notice the dates of the first blogs on these practices, some in fact are dated 2002/2003, although only recently it has started to talk, perhaps thanks to social networks. Finally, does reflect the answer that Dr. Frascino gave 13 years ago, when social networks did not exist, for a guy who he suspected of having a “Bugchaser” as a boyfriend: “I personally believe that your boyfriend has just a fantasy, and fantasies are dangerous only if put into practice. Studies have found that often these are just fantasies. ” Today, 13 years later, I took a few hours and an Internet connection to “catch AIDS.”
If you want more information about AIDS, ask for help, or confide visit the LILA, Italian League for the Fight against AIDS.

Cindy Crawford, but as a retreat! His 50 years since super model

A phrase extrapolated from an interview triggers the alarm: “Cindy Crawford retires.” But it’s just a joke (already repeated and refuted)

Cindy Crawford retires from the set, from the covers and fashion? The voice and spreads the alarm. Which falls in less than 24 hours, thanks to the clarification of the same supermodel who laughs on Instagram: “Boys,” it is just a joke.

Crawford, during the promotion of his new book (Becoming), had given an interview to the magazine of United Airlines’ Hemispheres Rhapsody talking about the impending birthday, that of 50, as one of those events that could mean “to say goodbye to the days as a model. ” And down all talk of early retirement. The speech, in fact, still seemingly cryptic: “[…] Or maybe do not say goodbye. But go ahead. I had no idea that the book would be part of the trip. […] I am certain that you take my picture for another 10 years, maybe not as a model. Alright then. I did that, I worked with many amazing photographers … But I can not continue to reinvent myself, to put myself to the test.
No matter what he meant really say Cindy at that time because in the end … it was all a joke, as the same Crawford was quick to emphasize on social publishing his personal enlightenment.

“Every year, I tell my children that I retire. It’s a joke in the family. But then, every year, they are jumping out exciting opportunity for me. Although it is true that I can not wait to move my attention and focus on my things, family and friends – I am not making any final declaration (not all the headlines tell the whole story!). I loved being part of the fashion world in the last 30 years and if this time has taught me anything, it is: never say never. Thanks for the support, I am so excited for what 2016 will bring! “
