Para celebrar o 500.º aniversário da morte de Leonardo da Vinci, Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto vai promover uma “exposição única” do desenho “Rapariga lavando os pés a uma criança”, na quinta-feira. Contactado pela agência Lusa, o diretor do Museu da Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto (FBAUP), Luís Pinto Nunes, adiantou que a exposição de um só dia, na quinta-feira no Pavilhão de Exposições da faculdade, vai ser “única”, tendo em conta a “antiguidade” e “características” daquela que é a única obra do mestre italiano em Portugal. “Dentro de toda a obra que integra, este desenho é muito despreocupado dos que tipicamente conhecemos de Leonardo da Vinci porque revela a relação de uma mãe […]

Christmas in Silesia, Poland

We celebrate it a bit differently than in the rest of the country. Christmas in Poland is a very special time. But in Silesia, the region where I was born and raised and where all my family lives, we celebrate it a bit differently than in the rest of the country. The most important day is Christmas Eve on the 24th of December. At my home, the preparations start early in the morning when all of the women (me, my mother and my grandmother) start cooking dishes for the dinner, bake cakes and make makówki – my favorite Christmas sweet dish made of poppyseed, nuts, and bread. When the kids spot the first star in the sky, the whole family […]

Xenofobia na F. de Direito da UL

Banca exibia pedras “para atirar a um ‘zuca’”. Reitor da Universidade de Lisboa promete processo disciplinar, mas a Faculdade de Direito afirma que qualquer acção será alvo de uma “ponderação mais cuidada”. “Grátis se for para atirar a um ‘zuca’ (que passou à frente no mestrado)”, lia-se num cartaz colado a uma caixa de madeira com pedras lá dentro. A instalação apareceu esta segunda-feira, junto a uma banca nos corredores da Faculdade de Direito da Universidade de Lisboa (FDUL). O acto foi imediatamente repudiado por alunos brasileiros da faculdade como uma demonstração de “xenofobia” e de “incitação à violência”. “É inaceitável que uma universidade centenária como a UL aceite tais tipos de acto, que propagam a discriminação entre os povos […]

Traditions in the Basque Country

The comparison with the Nordic Santa Claus was inevitable. Christmas Traditions: Olentzero Olentzero is a character from the Basque Christmas tradition. He is a mythological collier that brings Christmas gifts to homes in the Basque Country, on both sides of the Pyrenees. Olentzero is represented as a thick man, unkempt, stained with coal. His main characteristic is that he lives isolated from the society dedicated to making charcoal in the forest, enjoying eating and drinking well and every winter he goes down from the mountains to the villages. The most widespread hypothesis is that the origin of Olentzero predates the Christianization of Navarre and that the character of Olentzero must be located within the celebrations of the winter solstice. There […]

NASA detecta sismo em Marte

A agência espacial norte-americana divulgou o som de um marsquake, registado pela Insight, a sonda cuja principal missão era obter dados sobre o interior do planeta. A NASA divulgou esta quarta-feira o que acredita ser a primeira gravação de um sismo em Marte. A sonda da agência espacial norte-americana InSight mediu e registou um evento sísmico ao qual os cientistas chamaram de “marsquake”, um trocadinho entre as palavras Marte e earthquake (terramoto, em português).

A Europe of Traditions

The Traditions of Christmas, Carnival, and Easter in Germany. In my home country, Christmas time starts with the 1st of December, children receive “Adventskalender”, a calendar made mostly out of chocolates, which are used as a count down until Christmas Eve.

Traditions in Holland

Everybody goes out on the streets and wears orange. The traditions of Christmas Santa is not a prominent figure in the traditional Holland Christmas celebration. Instead, children look forward to the arrival of St. Nicholas in November. St. Nicholas wears red bishop’s robes and is accompanied by a helper who is known as Zwarte Piet or Black Peter.

Mecanismo para manter a pele jovem

Experiências na pele da cauda de ratinhos, que partilha muitas características com a pele humana, permitiram clarificar a competição celular na pele e identificar compostos que podem contribuir para novas soluções anti-envelhecimento. Um estudo publicado na revista Nature demonstra que a competição entre células estaminais, impulsionada por uma proteína específica de colagénio, é fundamental para manter a pele “jovem” e também para o seu envelhecimento com o tempo. O estudo, em ratinhos, identifica ainda compostos que podem contribuir para novas soluções anti-envelhecimento da pele humana. A pele envelhecida é mais fina, mais frágil e é caracterizada por uma cicatrização mais lenta das feridas, assim como reduzidos reservatórios de células específicas da pele, como os queratinócitos e melanócitos. O fenómeno da […]

Maruja Mallo

Maruja Mallo was first and foremost free. When you think about a famous painter from Spain all the names that come out are masculine. The reason why is not because there are not female Spanish painters, it is because history is not giving them the recognition that they deserve. I am really far from being an art expert, but I know how women have to face challenges due to gender biases, from finding difficulty in training to selling their work and gaining recognition. Maruja Mallo is one of the women that fight for her own place in the world of art of the twentieth century to become one of the most representative figures of the Generation of 27 and one […]

The project was presented for the first time in an event called PechaKucha by José Maria Montero. After that, on April 2011, in the street of Santa Maria at number 77 the first door was painted by the artist Mark Milewski. It looks like a […]
