Metal monolith discovered in Utah desert mysteriously disappears
"In Romania after a similar structure disappeared from a desert in Utah. It's 13 FT. Tall and NBC's Tom Rivers is live with us this morning on the model with Hunt has so Tom are these two structures connected the one in Utah and the one in Romania. They may be. And if you look at the pictures closely, they're not the same now objects so maybe you gotta got a crew of Banksy type artists out there working on this one. Just Trying, you know, trying to be funnel us. As we approach the end of this arguably worse year of most of our lives. Yeah. You gotta throw this in at the end of 2020. Why not get rid of it? Exactly. So the model has appeared in Utah, and then it was gone. And didn't the park service there say we didn't take it. We didn't take it down. Yeah, exactly. And it wasn't like it was like disappeared. Miraculously, they apparently concede that there was some disturbance of the soil. So somehow it was Physically taken out of there on this one, though, is interesting. Because you know that one was kind of the back of beyond Unless you're a shepherd or Ah, old Explorer. You're not gonna find that one. But this one is On the hill of the town and Romania Theater. A neat and people are watching it and probably, you know, you should get those little little animal cameras get one of those on it. So if Anything happens to this thing.

Another Monolith Has Appeared in Romania
"We have another update on these damn monoliths. This morning. We told you yesterday, the one in the Utah desert just disappeared Inexplicably. Over the weekend, almost the same exact time. One was being found in Romania. This one is 13 ft. Tall. It is also three sided. It's also buried in the ground at all this one no different than the Utah wanted. Has some kind of like swirling symbol scratching etchings all over it. It is near some kind of ancient ruin and Romania so you'd think it would have been seen before last week. It's also on private property, which would have required permits to build it correctly. And properly but no one seems to know how this one got to this part of Romania. Now there's Sean and capital have been saying that there's all sorts of rumors and reports that that there's there's account like a prank or some kind of artist. Installation. I don't know anything about that. I just know that we've got now in a completely different part of the world. They second out of nowhere. 10, plus foot steel beam. Buried in the ground. So before you automatically jump to the conclusion that it must be connected, must be the same people. According to the story that bogus reciting Google Earth imagery, which takes satellite photos of the entire Earth, show that this Romanian structure Appeared between August 2015 and October 2016. It's at least been there for four plus years. And, you know, I think they're the Utah one D. I believe that's the you saw one. The Utah one that has been there since August of 2015. Okay, so either way, one of these is not just a recent development. It has been there for a while. So the idea This was somehow like the last couple of weeks. So there's an artist playing jokes on everybody. This has been, as we said all along a long con a long plait their free years. And the one in Romania is on protected land that there's no way that people could have actually gotten on this land unless they knew the land owner apparently because it's on protected land. So I'm just I'm gonna call I'm gonna call B s a neighbor that thinks that these air just automatically the same person because you're gonna have place something in the desert of Utah four years ago. And then take it out this week, the moment that it got discovered and then suddenly appeared in Romania. How you getting Romania to drop another one of these things in the middle of pandemic when you can't travel, so maybe this is all done well before this. But maybe it's not extraterrestrial. But I don't think that these air was like, Oh, they found the monolith in Utah. Let's go drop one this week and Romania to keep people on their toes. Mm. I don't know about that. Remember, this could be the art like Banksy when he was rolling around New York and Chicago and even have different things pop up. You have no idea how nobody saw these artists parts pop up and nobody could find him. Nobody knew what he was. That's what this reminds me of. Maybe the Utah one was a long game and you wait for it to be found. And you have other one of these ready and connections throughout the world. And you say, Okay, we need to move this here, move that there and it creates some kind of buzz. Art is often stupid, and I think this is a better explanation than aliens. Was your was your art stupid that your mom ripped up in the know that Fender Bender wasn't to me, but clearly it was the my own mother. So now I'm reminding everybody that art stinks and art is awful. And dropping A monolith isn't art artists think it's art because they can't just paint between the lines? Well, I think that this is awesome Art. If it is art because it has the entire world, talking about art over the last week and a half, including a sports radio show that's consumed by the store, right. But again, I don't necessary think that's art. I just think it's like a cool Hunted like an egg hunt. Where's the next model? It's gonna pop up. There's no way monoliths. We never heard the word model it before 10 days ago. Now we see two and you tell me that I connected. Yeah, it's been a thing. It's just that you haven't been pretty well. We never talk about model is now suddenly the pop it up. They're not connected. There's no way they got to be. I don't think it's the same guy. I think you mean team of people. Do you think this guy has a Base in Utah base in Romania. He's got our base in America base in Romania. He's like Jason Bourne, right. It could be people in Europe. Who knows? When we come

Radio France Internationale publishes obituaries of people still alive
"Radio france international accidentally published the obituaries of bunch of famous. And still very much alive people including the queen of england. The radio station has since apologized for what it said was a technical problem that occurred when they were moving their website over to a new content management system the bbc notes that media outlets will often pre right the obituaries of high profile individuals in order to have them on hand to publish quickly in the wake of someone's passing at whatever that the broadcaster accidentally published a hundred draft stories quote. Not just to its own site but to partner sites including google and yahoo end quote is fairly mortifying almost literally i suppose i mean while it may be a common occurrence to pre right these obituaries. It certainly doesn't help. Our climate of misinformation and fake celebrity deaths trending on twitter every other day. Quoting the bbc. French businessman bernie tabby seventy seven. Who was on the list of people who had their death notice published by f. I has had his obituary published on at least two occasions by other news outlets and quotes other living humans whose obituaries were published today. By radio france international include president. Jimmy carter ayatollah committee and clint eastwood in mansfield joked on twitter quote. Lots of outraged people writing in demanding to know why they aren't important. Enough to have a pre written obituary ready and quotes and as somebody else pointed out on twitter. This is a bit reminiscent of the case of romanian man. Constantine rail you whose wife ordered a death certificate for him after he'd been gone in turkey for a decade seeking employment in losing touch with his family upon returning to romania and finding out what had happened he tried to get the death certificate overturned but the courts said he showed up too late to appeal and the death certificate for the dude standing there in their office asking about it would remain. Valid really was officially deceased for two years. During which time he was unable to find employment since all of his paperwork was invalid before the country finally overturned his death certificate in two thousand eighteen. Fortunately for those prematurely mourned by radio. France international today returning to the land of the legal living will not require jumping through quite as many hoops
Who Was Vlad the Impaler
"A time when I didn't know that Vlad. The Impaler was thought to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's genre-defining vampire Dracula hop in your home school bus police box or phone booth with aerial antenna and let's go back to 15th century will lakia a region of modern-day Romania. That was then the southern Edge over to the province of Transylvania. Our flad was flat the third glad the second his father was given the nickname dracul by his fellow Crusade nights in the order of the Dragon. They were tasked with defeating the Ottoman Empire will lakia was sandwiched between the Ottomans and Christian Europe and so became the sight of constant bloody conflict without looking it up. I'm going to guess that the order of the Dragon failed since the Ottoman Empire was still standing in nineteen twenty-three. Dracul translated to dragon in Old Romanian. But the modern meeting is more like Devil add an a to the end to denote son of and you've got flat Dracula at age eleven flat and his seven-year-old brother Raju went with their father on a diplomatic Mission into the Ottoman Empire. How'd it go? Not too good. The three were taken hostage their captors told Vlad the second that he could be released if his two sons remained behind home since it was really their only option. He agreed the boys would be held prisoner for five years one account holds that they were tutored in The Art of War science and philosophy. Other accounts say that they were subjected to torture and brutal abuse by the time Vlad the second return to Allah Kiya. He was overthrown in a coup and he and his eldest son murdered shortly. Thereafter Vlad. The third was released with a taste for violence and a vendetta against the Ottomans to regain his family's power and make a name for himself. He threw a banquet for hundreds of members of rival families on the menu was wine meet sweetbreads and gruesome vicious murder off. The guests were stabbed not quite to death then impaled on large spikes. This would become vlad's signature move leading to his moniker Vlad the Impaler, but it wasn't the only arrow in his quiver. Facing an army three times the size of his he ordered his men to infiltrate their territory poison the wells and burn the crops. He also hired disease dead-end to go in and infect the enemy defeated combatants were often treated to disemboweling flaying Alive boiling and of course impalement. Basically, you turn your enemy into a kabob and let them die slowly and just as importantly conspicuously vlad's reputation spread leading to a mixing of Legend in fact like that. He wants took dinner in a veritable Forest of spikes. We do know that in June of 1462. He ordered 20,000 defeated Ottomans to be impaled. It's a scale that's hard to even imagine when the Ott's in Sultan mehmed II Came Upon the Carnage he and his men turned on their heels and fled back to Constantinople. You would think flawed was on the road to Victory but shortly thereafter. He was forced into Exile and imprisoned in Hungary. He took a stab no pun intended on regaining will lakia fifteen years later, but he and his troops were ambushed and killed according to a contemporary

Trump won Maybe even the night before that to be nice. You have made some news, sir. All these stories coming out now about 100 biting hard drive. Email. Democrats have never job. I never denied these. Amy. These e mails were fake. Never said they're fake blah, blah, blah. But you you made the amount you'd explain it that there are now and I don't get this wrong. Photos of underage girls. Maybe naked girls underage on Hunter Biden's hard drive and now an FBI agent that signed a subpoena to take the hard drive, actually, ah focuses and investigates crimes committed against Children. So this is a big deal. Explain what you have so far. Well, there's only a certain that I can explain properly. Ah! I was given the hard drive. By my attorney who got it from the man who was repairing it, and after a long period of time, opened it up, looked at it and basically found evidence. Criminality with regard to Ukraine and China. Basically, there are Very, very clear statements on there. That the money that Hunter Biden was collecting from Ukraine, China Russia. Kazakhstan, Romania. That he was sharing a Toledo had with his father. Even during the time his father was vice president. Which would take this from a conflict of interest case. You a straight out really, really serious bribery case. And those those 100 Biden's words. In a text. You a relative. Complaining about the half that he has to give his father Is also a document there. In which tent in which the Bidens the Biden family meeting, Hunter is on his uncle. Go into business with three major Chinese communist members of Chinese organized crime. Very dangerous people, one of whom is and killed subsequently executed. Uh, and it's a deal where they get $10 million a year. 50% of the profits for making introductions. And Hunter gets a million dollars up front from the Chinese Communist. They also set up the office together. However, when you find the secret document, which is in the in the hard drive, there's a secret document that includes an additional part. It isn't in the official papers. The additional partner gets 10%. Off the overall deal. Then, according to 100 texts, actually gets 50% of what everybody else gets. Oh, he's getting a big chunk. The additional partner is described as 10% for the big guy. I'm reading from the text right now. 10% for the big guy. So now you have to figure out who is the big guy. Go. Pages later, or two Text later. Hunter. Biden is asking for teas for the new office, the first key that he asked for the job, but The second key for Jill. Bye. So he's gonna be in this office of this partnership between the Biden family. In the Chinese communist government, the name of the businesses Hudson West or something. And And finally Now I've been to anonymous Forces What's called who were involved in this deal who have identified the big guy as Joe Biden. And one of them is on the verge of becoming public. I know who they are not at liberty to give you their names, but they have been made known to the FBI and have given statements to the FBI. So basically Basically Basically what you have. Is, um Clear evidence that Biden I was involved. In massive bribery. I think I think it's described this 30 30 years 30 years of bribery, described his people. In the text messages are incredible, breathtaking crimes. In addition to it, there's a photograph section 28 to 29,000 photos that many of them harmless. Some of which Pornographic. Some of which could be described as perverted. And then there was some That, in the words of Hunter Biden's words and the way he describes his activities. Reconstitute. Um, danger to Children. So it was submitted to the Delaware police. Buy me and former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. Them to analyze and determine what what exactly is this? There are Pictures of young girls cannot describe exactly how they dressed. But In a way that would be a matter of concern. And there are texts. In which he admits that he's a danger to Children. And then their attacks that make allegations about him that he denies. Even though he admits he's a danger. The Children he denies having taken his clothes off in front of them. Or having face time. The nude. Psychiatrist or one of the young girls since that he did that.

Tens of thousands of people rally against Lukashenko in Belarus
"Where Can Belarus President Turn Now? Thousands of people were back on the streets protesting this weekend still angry at what they believe was a rigged presidential election President Lukashenko who claimed as he returned to power with an eighty percent approval rate responded by flying over the protesters wearing riot gear with a rifle slung from his shoulder. Well, drained over is L. Editor of Belarus Anna Leasing at the University of Brain and I'm delighted to say she joins us on the line now Auger a very warm welcome to monocle twenty four. These absolutely bizarre scenes of President Lukashenko yesterday. Well. Yes. I was actually also quite as to see you know him banning public with a gun and also his fifteen year old son campaign him so to say so it's the definitely assigned for me that he he's kind of knocked children confidence in front of the people who through testing by his residence, and it's also not you know not that Jerry. Addict from me because the protest is peaceful, protesters will not trying to receive this residents in the state needs. said the wall spread the information that there was some attempt to seek the? Residency so it's quite an emotional psychological reaction from him. I would say and will. Nobody. that. So it's also very strong sign that there is now readiness of from from the official from the state site for any kind of luck that you know this new to build coordination committee by Dehaan Oscar and she team is is trying to do initiate and I think everybody most notably people. In Belarus itself have been absolutely taken aback by the brutality of the reaction by the the Lauren forces to the protesters and the fact that Alexander Lukashenko was was dressed up in riot gear suggests that he doesn't have anywhere to go other than a violent approach. Yes I would also I would also expects it. You know what targeted repressions and they're ready started last week and they continued this week. So what what would serve now is definitely not base wave of unprecedented repression that we. Saw Three days and nights after the elections but still there are targeted repressions and against. Most active people are also criminal case has been initiated against the newly built coordination committee and people. People are invited to some talks with KGB officials until also people actually also bill will try to strike there actually threatened. By the direction openness of the state owned enterprises that they would lose their jobs and so on. So observe already targeted pressure on people, but this wave is still not to the tide because you know. So what international reaction was so the state drives, you know just show from the one handed, it's not ready for the data from the one hand there is the rest of. You know not not to let this protests spread. Within the country how much do you think that's what the foreign observers of said about what's been happening in Belarus for the last couple of weeks is actually forming any decision made by Alexander Lukashenko at the moment. Well I think that it will quite an important aim has been achieved ready and that we actually we have understood that he's not legitimate within the society right within the boat society and I think also problem was that he really did not understand that. Shortly after the elections or before the elections so and. Actually. I think that the reaction was not is at least that. He and his circles really have the distended. Okay. He doesn't have any majority in society, but it has not led so far to his readiness for dialogue just in the all the way he kind of supports the security structures in internal, Misteri Ministry and actually he even gave you know about three hundred medals to those who are actually responsible of for for this incident violence. So he kinds of stresses that the security two structures military is. Actually the most important pillar his powerful for now for the moment, the Steve Kerr show is joining us now he's policy and advocacy. Directorate. Freedom from torture and author of St Spirit Steve. Welcome. Thanks for joining us. Hey On monocle twenty, four Olga a moment ago mentioned the fact that the secret police is still called the KGB I mean, what does that say about the level of influence at Russia's still has in terms of the way that Belarus's going and whether Russia just going to sit this out. Yes I mean I either it reflects influence of Russia, which is August is certainly, very great or it's just almost bizarre retro element to to better under Lukashenko. He doesn't mind thinking in those terms I think it is going to be. So Russia will certainly be an important factor and but at the same time Mosca really doesn't want to be. Getting, further involved in in a very direct since that's going to be difficult for Russia as well. So I think that Lucas. Is playing a very difficult game. If he was giving small confessions, I think he might have some a little bit more success in some homage to blunt things but so far at least the violence has had absolutely opposite effective people become more and more angry the fear obviously quite rightly the last Sunday was absolutely crucial. I would argue that the US huge threats of on ahead of Sunday hoping that people. Would back off and stay at home and actually it was a big rally than ever. So not particular face off. There's no question that Lukashenko loss what happens next we'll still see I'll steve has suggested that Sunday was a pivotal moment some people waiting for what is described as a tipping point when an event causes things to go one way or the other would you say that Sunday was part of that? Tipping Point. Demon this Sunday last Sunday. To Sunday. The Sunday. Just gone when tens of thousands of people came out onto the streets to set by a threat the first Sunday directly after the elections. Yes. I it just completely I mean people never any. Okay. What we're talking about batteries and Ballard who's says, Chris it's not the first Sunday that actions pulses side will have to admit that it also not to the extent that people actually being tortured eating the prisons will have also. took a beast fag, but it's for the first very time that such vast majority of people. So it with their own is is of their families or friends in stone. So you can imagine how many are nets were the strategy when they're where our seven seven thousand arrests. So it's it's quite a big part of the country said it's really I would agree it had an opposite effect and it's also for the first time that you know this special. GRANITZ or gas or a also rubber bullets on there were actually used against own population. It never existed in the history of Belarus in October election protests, people widget shocked and I think it was a shock from the both sides because the state net expected to such mass protest before also before three weeks before the elections would be solved by. About two to five or even six percent of local population came to to railways with Hannele. It's also unprecedented thing was kind of shock from both sides and of course, people people were also by this eighty percent because nobody really believes that anymore I mean. People also really did not quite believe that before I, would say people heading out some kind of feeling that president steelhead had a majority maybe not eighty percent maybe fifty five, maybe sixty but this feeling was there and this style with completely different. So quiet in Jersey, you know quite a big part even I think I would say the majority of people just didn't believe that he actually has any kind of fifty plus and that was the problem that we still have this eighty percents I think people would just. People were just humiliated by that of course, activate shortly afterwards by this unprecedented wave refreshing stave when we look to the further history of batteries, which is being written right now when considering what sort the former eastern bloc countries of have seen in the last three decades. When regime ends, it's generally quite a peaceful affair actually the deleted. is of removed from office. This is unlikely to happen here. Isn't it? Well, I mean, sometimes it has been an sometimes it hasn't been. So when I was a journalist working for the independent, I was the East Europe during the eighty nine revolutions and also join me the fall of Milosevic Milosevic in Serbia and cover dot and there a number of those leaders were ready to use very significant violence and what I'm fascinated by very moved by what was seeing with the courage. A better as protesters today is to see that they are defined vence in the same ways that work very effectively for example, in East Germany where people were threatened with extraordinary for someone particular day in Leipzig in. October nineteen eighty-nine the fact that so many people came out meant regime which had publicly declared its loyalty to force actually back down in Romania I very much. Hope it weren't turn into remain, but we do already see that there are splits within Belarus at the riot police remain loyal. The moment we've seen a number of police units splits off. We've seen a lot of establishment figures putting off in the same way as also does something happened in in Ukraine and the Orange Revolution, and once you see security forces a different security forces splitting away going like enough already as August said, I mean the eighty percent. Claim was was absurdly insulin and the degree of the virus even Grayson seen before and I think this is really interesting. It might end up in huge volumes but I think Lukashenka would lose very very badly that to happen I think it's a regional issue. How if you like bluntly how crazy you are Milosevic. For example, he survived on one occasion ninety seven by giving some concessions and then re clamping down and people just got tired and went back when you use real violence I think it's really difficult. It was a great book written by Richard couple the Polish off I was written about the Iranian revolution. Charlotte. Charlotte's but very much reflected his own country Poland which forty years ago. This month solidarity kind of a huge opposition movement didn't call itself opposition challenge the regime and unthinkable circumstances laying Brezhnev for the very reactionary Russian leader was still in power. They managed to become successful and he said the moment where people stand in front of eastern threatens violence, the pre curry signing backstops, and instead someone stands there and doesn't back down he said, this is where the revolution begins, and after that in effect is the exact the precipice. If you're to violence, you make people more angry if you start making concessions than people go. We have lost our fear and in a sense the certain moment difficult to prediction events but describable. There is no way back to the regime and it still seems a little bit early to say but I think it's very, very difficult to see how Lukashenko come back from this. If he steps back more gently than, of course, it will be peaceful. The protests have been fun tastic peaceful and very, very consciously so far the extended even cleaning up rubbish because I really vary consciously very civic. Minded. So he might just go off and disappear off to Russia for example, and as it will live happily ever after but he tries to bring out all of the guns. Then I think you know all bets are off but I don't think it was a good ending for him whichever way it goes Steve Crozier and Elga agenda over there. Thank you for joining us on monocle twenty four.

Making it one of the most strategically valuable areas in Europe. As a result it was constantly under attack especially by the Ottomans during the fifteenth century nearly every country territory or kingdom from Britain to China was constantly at war.

Welcome to travel with Rick Steves thank you so we have this historic character Vlad tempest shore or Vlad Dracula Nickname Vlad the impaler and then there's the romantic Character Dracula from the Bram Stoker Book who who is who who's real and what's The story here well Vlad Dracula was a fifteenth century Princeton doc yet today's Romania and he was principal lucky during a very challenging time the Ottomans were encroaching from the south and the Hungarian empire was coming in from the North West and they were just kind of like a little tiny grape waiting to be squashed and Vlade rather than allow himself to be Scott washed he he went on the offensive he mentioned to broker an agreement with the Hungarians and then he went after the Ottomans and literally scared them away impaling people and yes did he drink their blood after Dracula died there was a lot of writing about this guy and he even further violence very different time he was notably sadistic and so- writers from Germany and Russia far off in decades after he died they'd be writing these tales about him and they embellished quite a bit he is guilty of a lot of terrible things but he was never known to be cannibalistic okay so this was a time when when there was brutal tactics by being people would torture reach they would cut off their heads and put him on pikes and so on how was Vlad exceptional he he was just very creative for lack of a better word word with killing people and it was psychological warfare you know the Ottoman Empire had his little principality outnumbered three to one so he took it to another level and succeeded I he ultimately died of course in the Ottomans eventually made it all the way to the gates of Vienna couple of centuries later while he was alive he he was a legend almost you you've had more eloquent justification of this cruel bloodthirsty Vlad the impaler ruler of this little country by just saying hey he it was squashed between Hungary and the Ottomans and it was the way he could keep his tribe from becoming wiped out you wrote in your book some very uncreative dirty tricks that he used I mean he actually dressed people up with leprosy in the plague and sent them to mingle with the enemy yeah he did that and it was extremely successful and it is believed to be the earliest or one of the earliest known uses of germ warfare Romania's wide open it's part of the e U Now it's perhaps the poorest country in the EU wide open and traveling there is very straightforward you don't need a visa or anything like that you'll find comfortable hotels it's super affordable what are the Dracula's heights. I mean a lot of what we think about Dracula is you know fanciful but there's actually honest to goodness Dracula Site Oh yeah a lot of them have survived they built things back then to last and so for example his boyhood home in Singapore where he was born and lived until he was a toddler that is still standing a restaurant and the princely court at target of each day where Vlade and his father and his grandfather that's where their princely court was and it was a formidable fortress and castle at the time and large portions of those ruins are still standing and of course then there's DRACULA'S CASTLE THE REAL DRACULA's Castle up in the mountains right at the underwear will Akia connects with Transylvania at it was an important pass at the time and new strategic he built a castle there and ruins of that are still standing and what's the name of the castle it's called pointe-noire the at the end is silent so P. O. E. N. A. R. I that's Dracula's real castle and the most popular among tourists of all the sates has segers Shera which is an amazing little dramatic town nestled in the in the hills of Transylvania brand castle has the most tourism of any it dragged on site what's with Brand Castle and its association with Vlad The impaler well as with a lot of things in the fifteenth century the details are a little not but so there's several different versions of this story but all of them basically agree that probably visited there but didn't spend much time there in he may have even been briefly imprisoned there but yes apart from spending a few nights there either as a guest or a prisoner he that was the beginning of in of his association with around castle but wouldn't you say of of all the money spent on Dracula tourism maybe half of it is spent at Brown Castle Oh certainly it it you know on its own is a an incredible attraction and because of that certain people kind of maybe over blow the Association with Dracula just to squeeze out a few extra tourist dollars Dracula t shirts and one it's beautifully situated castle but the interior really goes back to the nineteen twenties when it was a getaway for Romania's royal family is kind of a rustic country retreat and it's quite an the visit just in that regard but I would say just finding the Romania of Dracula time would be a good challenge for the travelers with we're getting too hung up on the scant remains of places that were directly associated with Dracula talk about Romania in the fifteenth century where my we go today to get a sense of Romania from that age well that is kind of the rub the Best Dracula surviving track sites are not in the most traveled areas so you got to really be you're gonNA have to rent a car targovichte point are citadel those places are not on the tourist trail it's Brown castle and then signatura where you're gonNA find all the tourists and those are great but those you know again Dracula moved away from cigarettes when who's three and hugh only temporarily stayed at Brown castle if you WANNA get into some real dracula stuff you have to get in a car in and really just go for it this is travel talking with Life Pederson Life Book is backpacking with Dracula on the trail of lab the impaler and the vampire that he inspired so explain the action life please between the historic Vlad Dracula and Dracula that came out of Bram Stoker's book well there is some debate about that for a long time it was believed that Prompts Stoker Studied Flattish Flawed Dracula closely modelled his vampire monster after this guy I mean if you compare the two probably WLAC Dracula killed more guys in his lifetime than the vampire but there's now a new evidence to suggest that Braham may not have own so much about Dracula I mean obviously saw the name and and quite happily adopted it but there's some argument that he just knew a passing amounts about the prince and instead based his vampire on previous characteristics of vampires the vampire storytelling at the time was very popular so bram stoker was just kind of dredging through different legends and scary stories from that region in the Middle Ages and not necessarily based on one character yeah it there's theories that he he builds the character of Count Dracula from numerous people that he was hanging out with their in the late nineteenth century including his boss he worked at a theater for twenty something years and the boss of the theater who was also the lead actor was this tall gangly guy with a hooked nose and thin gaunt Oh called hundred pratice Romanians he's right up there at the top it despite all his atrocities he's considered kind of like a great combination of robinhood and Rambo defended Romania in in an impossible situation what about vampires just in general how what is the historic basis of all the focus on vampires the vampire higher superstition that in all of Eastern Europe that goes way way back there was a time where people believed it was true and they believed it so much that and the doubters Kinda came around like actual doctors sent from Vienna to investigate stuff going on in Serbia they they went home and reported that vampires were the real thing and they had to start planning for the inevitable vampire horde and the core storytellers.

It's a cute story to practice astrology when i became passionate about it that was rare in romania and even exotic. It seemed pretty eccentric. My parents were a bit skeptical. My mother was a teacher my father an economist but eventually as long as they saw i was still grounded and i carried on with my school studies and that the passion for astrology does not negatively influenced my life as they had initially feared then they learn to accept and look kindly upon it. I met my husband in the first year of college so he was there next to me. When i got to hold my first zodiac he was completely against at this is silly. His gemini and i kept telling him look at this person doing that. That is a leo doing that and so on so i was just telling him everything a little later.

I bought many books by myself. I own several hundreds of strategy books at some point really a great number. Many of them i donated because some of them were outdated. They were are no longer useful. I only kept what i deemed valuable but the beginning was very difficult. I was alone and uh i had no one to exchange ideas with. It's really awful to struggle by yourself to have no one to ask for advice my colleagues in france. They were not interested in this. My opinion is that you really need a calling to study astrology otherwise otherwise you can't. It's a vast domain where you only enter. If you're passionate. After the revolution i managed to get into contact act with two older astrologers from my cd. They also had a few books in french. I couldn't previously get in touch touch with them because they were afraid. I was aware that one of them existed. I tried to contact him but it wasn't possible. After wards it was probably the many years of lonely study which caused the hunger and need to create astrology groups took become involved in creating association in sharing with others in the discussion group. Everything i studied i which share with others over the years i probably wrote countless volumes in emails on that group and always as afterwards during congress's during various astrological gatherings.

"There's sometimes debates and they asked logical community over whether certification is a good idea or a bad idea. How do you feel about certification in astrology at this point clearly. You're more in favor of the idea of certification. So what do you say to those who who are against it. Not all astrologers remain attended my school. Not all of them have a certificate in actuality. Most astrologers were self taught and thus many of them move forward to organize studies in an organized school setting or they stubbornly seek individualism listen. They want to be on their own two feet. Neither one of these options is wrong. The law allows them to activate his astrologers soldiers even without the certification so for now that is a good thing as they don't feel hemmed in but as time passes certification advocation will be required the same happened with the astrologers association. We were a handful of people who collaborated and we got to thinking some astrologers in romanian worldwide are a bit more individualistic each works on their own and usually keep their knowledge to themselves. We thought we could gather all strangers in romania under the same umbrella not for them to be directed or lead but for them to collaborate collaborate so we thought if we the few for five people can cooperate we are certain there are other astrologers in romania eager to collaborate and in this way we created the association we created magazines online or printed and here we are a good number of astrologers corologis who collaborate by exchanging ideas. We learn from each other so it's a great advantage. It's plus you. You are a first generation astrologer but you are not the only astrologer in your family ryan. I was among the first astrologers but once a younger generation appeared. I personally consider than gave myself as an example that the younger generation should decide the fate of association on and off the elders who created the association. We should take a step back. Not everyone from the association from my generation took that step back. I did just so that i could set an example. It's true many interpreted that this step back differently italy has making room for my daughter who is now president of the astrologers association. It's not true. I took that step back before before she became president. People like her. They love her and she became a great trawler through her own studies and not because of her father but through her own studies through her own work which naturally made me very happy she is respected for her own working can talent not for the fact her father founded the association high took a nice step back and i am at their disposal any time to help help and i consider myself fulfilled individual. I considered that what i have done and i am doing in my current position. It's an honor <unk> an brings me joy. So what are the different approaches to astrology in romania or are there different groups or how has astrology grown in developed in romania over the past thirty years in romania. The majority ninety percent of the people use tropical astrology siberia in hindu astrology is used. I very very little there are some astrologers using siberia hindu but very very few so when we talk about astrology in romania we talk about tropical astrology however some cards appeared some prefer hellenistic astrology others modern astrology trollope. How should i say this. My for my company is the largest provider of us logical services in romania. I have a team. I hi can't work by myself. I have a fool team providing these services.

"I couldn't say that i already learn strategy did them but at least the spark was ignited out of curiosity i would go through those books and because i insisted he eventually gifted send me. One of those books have to revolution. I knew enough the straw legit to come forward. I was among the first who write text on various magazines scenes and i tried to make collagen more popular. Obviously romanians had no idea even what their son son sign was not even even what does zodiac signs were. They knew nothing next to nothing about astrology because they had been cut off from this science for so long and at first it wasn't easy especially due to dialectical materialism which was typical of communist thinking people people used for us to look down on to mock those were involved in esoteric sciences metaphysics astrology and so on i didn't cave in i moved forward and i was convinced that what i was doing was amazing and step by step is succeeded and today almost every romanian no their son sign almost every t._v. Station has their horoscopes action. The commercial one hannah magazine people are already used to it. It was difficult in the beginning until they become accustomed but now they are accustomed and we can carry on with our activities slowly politicians and the those who were involved in writing the officiant classification gatien of economic activities in romania to strategy into consideration and officially recognized it as an occupation. It is not a profession just an occupation occupation but we are very happy that we have at least that's the difference between occupations and professions practically non-existent. There is a difference however in regulations because occupation is officially acknowledged. You made received an official certificate but one can't create for instance university university higher studies of astrology not yet but we are patient and working on it after the year two thousand. I personally founded the fidelia strategist strategist cool. It was the first official astrology schooling romania and the soon as we could. We started granting certificates that are officially recognized by the ministry of labor. Romanians can use that to officially perform this profession or occupation. I was happy to have achieved. If that to boast i was the first in many directions in astrology was the first to create the school. The first to issue certificates. I liked liked being the first it's nice and i still have some resources high surely still have much to do and they will do all high plan that when the time comes to be able to create an astrology college you can make sure that i will be attempting to how did you come to create the first certification in program for astrology in romania. We had to wait until the officials created that classification of economic activities in romania so so that the occupation of astrologer would be included in that list so that it exists as soon as it existed officially. Obviously i was waiting for it. I created the project. I submitted the paperwork and so i was the first to be able to offer that nowadays. There are also other offering these certifications. I'm not the only one anymore but i'm happy. The majority are former students of mine so i'm happy for them and thus astrology strategy is developing in romania. It's also interesting as an anecdote. The low stipulated that those wish to offer such a certificate to already. We have a certificate however at the time i did it. Nobody had the certificate but i managed to persuade them that somebody had to break. The ice <music> at somebody needed to be the first and i convinced him..

There's a lot of great people in that organization that made my trip to romania great and are just doing really fabulous work in their country and bringing astrology back after it was suppressed for so many decades so with without introduction to the way. Let's begin with the interviews. Hi thank you for joining me today. What is your name featured. No that's more difficult to pronounce in english but it is what it is and how old are you and do you share the details of your birth chart. I was born on sixteenth february nineteen sixty eighty two and in my chart i have a great number of planets and aquarius and in the eleventh house that endows with lava banerjee but clearly in the area this aquarius is responsible for and i'm happy about that i jokingly call the two bucket full of planets but it helps a great deal however uh i don't have any trying sex styles just an amazing stallion mars and saturn also there in accordance with mercury between them mm-hmm ending the opposite side notable ax is also aquarius leo handier analysis there the ruler of astrology in the fifth house of of which is also education so naturally. I was somewhat push to teach astrology. Aries rising provides the necessary energy to put any project project into practice before you were an astrologer. What is your primary profession or what was your educational background. I'm a math teacher. I attended babushka university inclusion which is considered by some the strongest university in romania had was a math teacher for over twenty twenty years than i gave up the education system to dedicate myself solely to astrology to assert eric sciences neurology a. and so on so i'm learning about the history of astrology in romania and i was wondering if you could explain a little bit about astrology being suppressed and how you found it during that time and how you eventually ended up becoming an astrologer during the communist era so before the revolution in nineteen eighty nine astrology was forbidden in romania even though other countries were who were also communist allow allow this strategy to exist in many was not not such a thing so it was just difficult as you couldn't even own books state security police militia which was the police denomination backed them would perform searches. Take the books on a strategy you're or out there is a tactic topics. They burn them and the owner could even go to prison. However in nineteen eighty five i found in the attic of of a friend's house with very well hidden some books on esoteric topics including astrology..

"Of VEDIC astrology debts sure in Asia and you have done work as a professional translator in have a great skill with languages. Do you feel like that's given greater opportunities in terms of your astrological studies. Yes actually I do speak the languages ages five so far in the I think it does because it's decoding astrology also decoding some symbols and translating it in for the person resonate with so definitely and also identifying when you speak a different language who identify with that culture a little bit their way of being so I think it's also good for empathizing in understanding different cultures in people in being more. Maybe accepting sure <hes> what are your observations in terms of astrology in Romania. It seems like when I came here. There's a lot more younger people that are interested in astrology here than I expected and that seems to be consistent with like more young people getting into it in other countries as well. Is that like a true perception deflectors. I younger people entering the field here as well at this point in time yeah definitely I think there's more younger people entering <hes> still Romania as a whole <hes> regarded strategy as like something a bit eccentric or something a bit. I'd like from for the glossy magazines just like the daily horoscope over so usually people don't really get deep into it and when you say you're a stranger <unk>. Look at you doses suspiciously like <hes> but the <hes> I think there is like a general more openness because of this younger generation millennials and after them that are more like open to the global culture and learning about different things so yeah I would say <hes> like the faces we saw at the festival are also younger people so I would say yes. It seemed like a really a good mixture of different people but the thing is like we didn't really <hes> can't keep in touch with each other for instance. I met a girl. Yeah I've known like for like ten fifteen years but I've known her from seeing her. We we went out in the same places. We listen to like similar music in our life so we were both interested in the strategy. That's nice you know. It seems like eh one of the issues I run into with young astrologists since they talk so much online they don't see as much value meeting up in person and I was wondering if you've had that experience or if you add enough feel different leave having attended ended like this week about attending events in person in if it's personalized it or made it more interesting for you in any way I have to say that I was I mean I wanted to come at you but I was like a bit reluctant because of the type <unk> this guy practice in this is really a weird for most before so I was like but then like when I came in I saw like everyone and I got to talk to them to meet them and like warm up to each other to three nine so I would with recommend to everyone to to come to these things and like you were saying you can initiate your own little group. You don't have to make something super fancy just like a informal gathering like just healthy or something hit the cafe talk about the strategy so I think that's really important to create little groups you know even though you're not the all studying the same side of a stratagem short you can you know interchange like the Greeks interchange with the Hindus thousands of years ago and we noticed noticed just talking <hes> after my presentation just how many similarities in some ways there are between.

"Ten nineteen eighty-three eleven forty five A._M.. In Roman Romania Yeah I'm a Scorpio rising with moon in Saturn on the ascendant and <hes> and the Senate in the Big Three <hes> what type of astrology do practice <hes> I practice tropical astrology end use of attic principles but I also tell us what I learned from Western astrology other planets and things like that and I'm not the blocked or set on one type of astrology I am I just want things that get the job done correctly and precisely true but you have over the past few years. We've developed a real passion for studying Indian astrology or vedic astrology yes since two thousand sixteen so maybe three years I've after some hiatus from astrology I found the <unk> who was teaching basic principles with the Tropical Zodiac End. I resonated very much with that so I accumulated a lot of knowledge in incorporated that in my practice fight successfully the I would say <hes>. It seems like you're one of the major like a vedic astrologers does uses the tropical Zodiac today yeah there. There's there's a few of us. I think the numbers increasing I think people initially they are a bit reluctant because they think Oh this culture is so different from mine. <hes> this is like old stuff. How can it be valid today but there are some principles that are archetypal that you can identify with like the same problems uh-huh? We had many thousands of years ago so I would say that's why it's becoming more popular because like younger people are so related to the pop culture into their own problems in the province of their friends so I guess yeah it's probably an easier entry point into vedic astrology than some other ways in terms of not having to deal with also changing the Zodiac exactly yes because yes some people are confused because when they hear a <hes> a breakfast Jogesh they're like <hes> you know we are using idea like my charges but it's actually not like that because the signs are tropical in Western astrology but we also used <unk> other techniques accent other things like sanitary conditions to find out you know the quality of our planet helpers and feels about that planet so there's a lot of things that the improve the quality of the things I would say sure. Why did you get interested in astrology or what <hes> what made you passionate about it well? My first contact with astrology was in the early nineties. Actually I had the I was reading comic Luke's Mickey Mouse Club in die so there was little leaflet with the Sun signs in the stone but it was just like tiny leaflet but afterwards I found in my on the bookshelf I found the book about Sun signs in Doc Goodman and then I found the book about stability I was about ten in the from then on. I was south thought for a long time because it just you know catches you. In I was writing down in my notebooks. My friends you know birthdates and what signs are Danes. Are they compatible so things like that and then you know I just the read lots of books. I started these with the <hes> the local astrology scorer here but then I wanted something more so <hes> I found the classes oh you know online classes I took I think Robin Armstrong School of Astrology in Canada by the scholarship and then you know later on <hes> earnest's his website is full of information in other sources of VEDIC astrology debts sure in Asia and you have done work as a professional translator in have a great skill with languages. Do you feel like that's given greater opportunities in terms of your astrological studies. Yes actually I do speak the languages ages five so far.
