ROMAN SEX, SEXUALITY, SLAVES AND LEX SCANTINIA - A document very interesting about sex as no common explained

Sex in archeology

In ancient Rome, Latin has no equivalent translation for defining homosexuality, nor heterosexuality as an individual’s sexual nature. Gay or straight, there would be no distinction.

Sexuality instead is determined by behavioral mannerisms, whether masculine or passive in both male and female roles. Roman society had a patriarchal system in which the gender role of the male is the primary authority, emphasized by the “active” masculinity as a premise of governance, power and status.
In the case of the freeborn women of Rome, they were sometimes described as “tribas fricatrix”, meaning “she who rubs” and “virago”, from the latin word vir (virile ‘man), a term used to describe a woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities.
Roman religion supported acceptance of sexuality, as an aspect that prospered religious practice for improving erotic lifestyle as well as defining an individual’s power through the procreative force of the male. Such traditions were a sign of active masculinity, but whether the religious tolerance can be applicable to homosexual acts is unknown.
Men were free to have intercourse with men, but generally only acceptable in instances where the masculinity of the freeborn Roman citizen wasn’t subject to the law of Lex Scantinia, otherwise bringing his name and family reputation into dis-repute or infamia (infamia – A loss of legal or social standing).

Virgin train to galactic trip as tourism

Il futuro tecnollogico: vi consigliamo questo articolo, molto interessante

The future
....Once sensors like the heart-rate monitor in the Samsung Galaxy S5 become standard in all smartphones, we could see more consistent, quality data and more useful services built around that data. Wilbanks gave the example of someone with depression getting help when their phone detects that they have not left the house or talked to anybody in a long time, signs that would otherwise have to be self-reported.....

Marchionne: "L'Italia incapace di reagire. Fiducia nel governo, ma risultati pochi"

Italia e Marchionne
Dal manager italo-canadese arriva anche un giudizio sull'operato dell'esecutivo di Matteo Renzi: "Riponiamo massima fiducia nel governo come negli ultimi tre, ma risultati ne abbiamo visti molto pochi, compromessi tanti", dice dal palco del meeting. "Il presidente Renzi ha un compito ingrato e arduo, ma appare determinato e coraggioso nel voler rimuovere le resistenze e io l'ho incoraggiato a proseguire l'intento riformatore senza curarsi degli attacchi", aggiunge il manager del gruppo auto.

El Salvador gangs announce re-launch of 2012 truce

Leaders of five of El Salvador's powerful gangs say they will stop attacking police and military in a bid to re-launch a gang truce agreed two years ago. The gangs want the government to provide "negotiating facilities" and promised to avoid "civilian" attacks. The 2012 truce initially reduced murder rates by 40%, but killings have doubled since 2013 to around 11 killings a day. In a statement, the gangs said it was a "second chance" for peace. Spokesmen from the MS-13, Barrio 18, Mao Mao, Maquina, Miranda Locos 13 and other gangs said: " We view this new effort as a second chance for the country to achieve peace."

China rules out open Hong Kong chief executive poll

Chinese authorities have ruled out open nominations for elections to choose Hong Kong's leader. Authorities said two to three candidates will be nominated by a "broadly representative" committee. The decision is expected to limit elections to a selection of pro-Beijing candidates and is likely to trigger protests from pro-democracy activists. Some of them have threatened mass disobedience if elections in the former British colony are not opened up. The election for Hong Kong's chief executive is due in 2017 and will be the first time the holder of the post is directly chosen by voters.
