Recolha de resíduos eléctricos

Recolha e tratamento de resíduos de equipamentos eléctricos e electrónicos deverá rondar as 70 mil toneladas, longe das 103 mil exigidas pela UE. O Ministério do Ambiente e da Acção Climática estima que a recolha e tratamento de resíduos de equipamentos eléctricos e electrónicos (REEE), em 2019, ronde as 70 mil toneladas, e não as 48 mil toneladas contabilizadas pela associação ambientalista Zero. O esclarecimento do Ministério do Ambiente enviado esta quinta-feira às redacções confirma, assim, que Portugal deverá falhar as metas estabelecidas pela União Europeia, que apontam para a recolha e tratamento de 65% destes componentes perigosos para a saúde e o ambiente. Para atingir esse valor, o país teria de recolher 103 mil toneladas de REEE. No esclarecimento […]

Christmas Eve around the table

Like in most Central European countries, Christmas in Poland is a quaint and much-beloved affair. Most of the Polish Christmas celebrations take place on 24th December, and even though the day isn’t an official public holiday in Poland, to many Poles it is one of the most significant and family-oriented dates in the calendar. Many institutions stop working earlier than usual on the day of Christmas Eve, which is usually celebrated with a family dinner at home. Many Poles wait until the first star appears in the sky before sitting down to eat on 24th December. This tradition commemorates the Star of Bethlehem, which according to the New Testament guided the Wise Men to the birthplace of Christ. Nowadays, with […]

Viriato e Lusitânia no Espaço

O exoplaneta agora baptizado foi descoberto por uma equipa liderada pelo astrofísico português Nuno Santos. Para comemorar o 100.º aniversário da União Astronómica Internacional (IAU, na sigla em inglês), mais de 110 países organizaram campanhas nacionais para atribuírem nomes a exoplanetas e às suas estrelas hospedeiras. Os resultados desta iniciativa, a IAU100 Name ExoWorlds (Dê Nome a ExoMundos, em português), foram anunciados esta terça-feira numa conferência em Paris. Em Portugal, os nomes escolhidos foram Lusitânia (para a estrela) e Viriato (para o exoplaneta). Esta proposta partiu, de forma independente, de três escolas de Braga, Pombal e da Maia. “Observações astronómicas durante a última geração levaram já à descoberta de mais de 4000 exoplanetas em órbita de outras estrelas que não […]

Christmas time in Germany

From “Nikolaus” to “Christkind” – who brings the presents? A long time ago, Saint Nicholas presented the children with gifts every year on the 6th of December. This act was a Catholic veneration of saints. Protestants, however, did not believe in this and so – probably even the reformer Martin Luther made sure that the distribution of presents was postponed to the 24th of December. From this point, Jesus alias the “Holy Christian” brought the gifts. This finally became the German “Christkind”. Despite this, up to now, “Nikolaus” brings small presents to the children, on the 6th of December. They have to put their clean shoes in front of their door and will find some presents in them, the next […]

Doutoramentos nos Politécnicos

No comunicado final do encontro, as direcções associativas estudantis sublinham a necessidade de “definir na lei o limite máximo e mínimo da propina a tempo parcial” e de conseguir um reforço orçamental. As direcções associativas estudantis querem rever o Regime Jurídico das Instituições do Ensino Superior (RJIES), para permitir a atribuição do grau de doutor pelos politécnicos, e a fórmula de cálculo da propina máxima e mínima.

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

The smell of fresh Christmas cookies and streets decorated with beautiful fairy lights everywhere! Austria can be a Christmas paradise, because if you’re lucky enough it will be covered in a thick layer of snow and long before the 24th December, when the main celebration takes place, the whole country is in Christmas mood. It usually all starts at the beginning of December, as that’s when the Christmas markets start and the streets are enlightened with fairy lights – so all the towns start looking Christmassy. In this time people like coming together at the Christmas markets to drink mulled wine or meet up at someone’s home and enjoy some homemade Christmas cookies. The most famous ones are called “Vanillekipferl”, […]

Christmas in Liechtenstein

Going to church on Christmas or spending more time with the family? This is in our country very different. Christmas means general spending time with the family in our country. It depends on how religious you and your family are and which religion they have. In our catholic family, it is a tradition to go to the mass on the 24th of December. With this event, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and afterward, we can do our own family traditions. On Christmas Eve, we always eat a lot and enjoy the moment where we all are together. We eat something special that we are not eating every day. Because we are a few vegetarians in our family, our dinner […]

Friedrich Wilhelm III

Today’s article is about the German Emperor and King of Prussia He was born during the German monarchy on the 18th October 1831, in Potsdam and died at the age of 56, in June 1888. Friedrich was the son of the former Emperor Wilhelm the First and his wife Augusta. But the marriage wasn’t happy at all. Due to the fact that his parents had different opinions considering politics, Friedrich’s childhood was difficult and often lonely. His father was very conservative, so Friedrich had been raised in a military tradition since an early age. In spite of that, his mother had a more liberal point of view and persisted on an alternative to the military education, which was a classical […]
