Células produtoras de mielina

Investigador português coordenou investigação sobre um conjunto de células que pode ter um papel importante na progressão da doença e que pode ser útil para novas abordagens terapêuticas. O alvo já tinha sido escolhido. O que se pretendia era investigar o papel de um conjunto específico de células, os oligodendrócitos, na progressão e origem da esclerose múltipla. Depois de um trabalho que usou o modelo do ratinho, Gonçalo Castelo Branco, investigador português no Instituto Karolinska, em Estocolmo, na Suécia, publicou um novo artigo na revista Nature sobre os resultados obtidos após a análise de amostras post mortem de cérebros de pacientes com esclerose múltipla. Desta vez, a investigação revela a diversidade das populações de oligodendrócitos numa nova perspectiva que poderá […]

Lil´kleine and Ronnie Flex

They conquered the world of the fourteen years old minds Lil’kleine and Ronnie Flex conquered the world of the fourteen years old minds and replace their thoughts of coke and chips for alcohol and drugs. If you want to chill, there is not a problem, because I will come. And of course, I never come alone, because I will always have alcohol and drugs with me. The controversial text wherein they mention that all teens say yes to MDMA is a search for the borders. They decided to cross that border in a mixture between pop and hip-hop. This song was the beginning of their bank accounts overloading with money. Nothing is too crazy. While Ronnie Flex focused more on […]

The Castle of Vaduz

The palace and official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein The castle of Vaduz (formerly known as Hohenliechtenstein) is the palace and official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. The castle gave its name to the town of Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, which it overlooks from an adjacent hilltop. It was built in the 12th century by the counts of Werdenberg-Sargans, who were also the former owners of the castle. In the Swabian war of 1499, the castle was burned by the Swiss Confederacy. The castle was expanded by Count Caspar of Hohenems. The Princely Family of Liechtenstein acquired Vaduz Castle in 1712 when it purchased the Countship of Vaduz. At this time, Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, combined […]

Queixas sobre a praxe diminuem

O ministro do Ensino Superior, Manuel Heitor, reconheceu que o sistema de queixas tem “um âmbito muito reduzido” porque há “muita inibição em fazer queixas”. O ministro do Ensino Superior afirmou esta quarta-feira, no parlamento, que as queixas relacionadas com as praxes passaram de 20 em 2016 para menos de cinco actualmente, defendendo que devem continuar a desenvolver-se actividades alternativas de integração de estudantes. “Sabemos que é um combate que tem de ser diário, contínuo e consecutivo”, disse Manuel Heitor perante os deputados da comissão de Educação e Ciência, na sequência de um requerimento do Bloco de Esquerda. Para o partido trata-se de uma prática “medievalesca”, que encerra em si “um pacto de silêncio” sobre uma “violência estrutural” que as […]

Vida sob camadas de gelo?

Uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos levou a cabo uma investigação no lago Mercer, um dos mais profundos lagos escondidos por baixo do gelo que cobre a Antárctida, e encontraram vestígios de crustáceos e de um tardígrado. Sob as camadas de gelo que cobrem a Antárctida há muitos segredos por descobrir. Uma expedição recente ao continente gelado, liderada por uma equipa dos Estados Unidos com cerca de 50 membros, revelou algo surpreendente: sinais de vida nas águas do lago Mercer, por baixo de uma camada de gelo com 1068 metros de espessura, a cerca de 600 quilómetros do Pólo Sul. Dos 379 lagos que existem por baixo da superfície gelada na Antárctida (muitos deles ligados entre si), o Mercer […]

Novo método pode ajudar diabéticos

O sistema vascular criado numa placa de Petri foi transplantado para ratinhos e funcionou. Este novo método pode ajudar a evitar alterações nos vasos sanguíneos de diabéticos e perceber melhor as causas das doenças vasculares. Um grupo de cientistas criou um sistema de vasos sanguíneos em laboratório a partir de células estaminais humanas induzidas (células que foram reprogramadas a partir de células adultas e podem diferenciar-se noutras, conseguindo originar qualquer tipo de tecido do organismo). Depois, o sistema foi transplantado com sucesso para ratinhos: os “organóides” criados artificialmente formaram uma “estrutura vascular estável” nos ratinhos, incluindo artérias, arteríolas e vénulas (pequenas veias). O estudo que relata estas conclusões foi publicado esta quinta-feira na revista científica Nature. Uma das boas notícias […]

About what my new home has in common with my old one. About the life in a small town between alps and about the similarities of my old and new home. Since I was born, I have lived in Bludenz, which is a small town in the western part of Austria. With 15.000 inhabitants it is the smallest town of the federal state Vorarlberg. It has an area from 29,94 km², an elevation of 588 meters and it lies at the meeting point of five valleys. However, my new home is Funchal.

Germany and Madeira

Differences and similarities between Germany and Madeira. My name is Anne, I am part of the voluntary project in Madeira. Therefore, I want to share my thoughts on the comparison between Germany and Madeira. Although, Madeira is on the border of Europe, close to Africa there are lots of similarities between Germany and Madeira. You can find some typical German food in the supermarket like Haribo or Nürnberger Würstchen. Most of the people are very nice, helpful and dressed like people in Germany. And last but not least we share the same currency, the Euro. However, there are also some differences. Due to the fact that the weather is much better than in Germany, the people are more tanned and […]

Two very different cities

Funchal and Vaduz: so different that it is very hard to find similarities. My home city is Vaduz. It is the capital city of Liechtenstein. Funchal is the capital city of the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Madeira seems to be pretty big if you compare Liechtenstein to the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Even Funchal is a lot bigger than my home city Vaduz. Vaduz has only 17,3 km² and Funchal has 76,25 km². One can also spot the difference by the number of inhabitants. Funchal has twenty times the amount of the inhabitants of Vaduz. Funchal and my home city seem to be really distant and they are. It is really hard to find a lot of similarities and it […]

An ocean of differences?

Funchal and Warsaw – the list of similarities between both places. Funchal and my home city are so distant, however, what are their similarities? In this united Europe, what do our cities share in this Union of, so far, 28 countries? What comes to my mind are mostly differences. In terms of the number of citizens, area, architecture and landscape that surrounds both cities. But where I see the biggest difference is climate. In Warsaw and generally Poland, weather is quite unpredictable. During summer days there might be an average of thirty-five degrees plus. On the other hand, sometimes in winter, the thermometer can show minus twenty-five degrees Celsius. While Madeiran temperatures are more stable throughout the year. Secondly, I […]
