Comunicado: Majoração

Comunicado do Reitor da Universidade da Madeira A questão da majoração, para compensar os sobrecustos devidos à condição insular e ultraperiférica das universidades da Madeira e dos Açores, foi um dos temas que marcou, nos últimos anos, a agenda estratégica destas universidades.

Behemoth

Behemoth is a Polish extreme metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content but soon changed to that of occult and Thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences. Despite Behemoth having been labeled as death metal or thrash metal-influenced, Nergal has mentioned that he does not like the band to be […]

Prática desportiva dos estudantes

Asteróide, bactérias, vida na Terra

Microbactérias que sobreviveram ao asteroide que matou os dinossauros podem ser a chave para a vida na Terra O asteroide Chicxulub caiu ao largo do Golfo do México há 66 milhões de anos e destruiu cerca de 76% de todas as espécies do planeta. À catástrofe sobreviveram as microbactérias que terão sido responsáveis por dar continuidade ao processo de vida na Terra, concluiu um novo estudo Estima-se que o Chicxulub tenha libertado uma energia equivalente à de 10 mil milhões de bombas atómicas como a que caiu em Hiroshima. Para a atmosfera foram lançados cerca de 425 mil milhões de toneladas de CO2 e 325 mil milhões de sulfuretos que terão formado uma neblina tão densa que deixou a Terra […]

Afinal…. Je suis neandertal

Pela primeira vez, conseguiu-se observar de forma consistente ADN neandertal em populações africanas. Quem somos? E que passado carregamos? Estas questões estão constantemente a ser feitas quando se estuda o ADN humano. Desta vez, ao usarem um novo método computacional para detectar ancestralidade neandertal no genoma de humanos modernos (a nossa espécie), uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos observou pela primeira vez, de forma robusta, que os africanos têm ancestralidade neandertal no seu ADN. Também se verificou que os europeus e os asiáticos têm níveis de ancestralidade neandertal mais parecidos entre si do que aquilo que se julgava. Antes de mais, façamos as apresentações. Os neandertais são um grupo de humanos que surgiu há cerca de 400 mil anos […]

Marguerite Duras

Marguerite Duras and her book “ Le Ravissement de Lol V. Stein” Marguerite Duras was born in 1914 in Gia Dinh next to Saigon in the French Indochina. She is a writer, novelist, playwright, and essayist. She became famous in 1950 with the book “The Sea Wall” (Un barrage contre le Pacifique). This book is largely inspired by the life and adolescence of Marguerite Duras in the French Indochina. After this first success, she will publish many new novels. Her style is close to the New Roman, with strange sentences construction, deconstructed characters, storyline, and timeline. The main topics are the wait, love, sensuality, and alcohol.

Marc Elsberg

An Austrian author of the 21st century: Marc Elsberg If you are interested in scientific thrillers, Marc Elsberg’s books are always a brilliant choice. It doesn’t matter if you choose Blackout, Zero or Helix – they’re all interesting, exciting and teach you a lot. This is why I like his work and why I always enjoy reading any book he wrote. He was born in 1967 in Vienna, grew up in the surroundings of Baden in Lower Austria and studied Industrial Design at the University for Art in Vienna. Later on, he worked in the marketing business as a creative director while he was starting to write his first book, a satirical novel called “Saubermann”. After three more books, he […]

Kari Hotakainen

A very well known writer in Finland. Kari Hotakainen started his career as a reporter and became a full-time author in 1996. He has written many novels, poetry books, children’s books, radio dramas, newspaper columns, plays, and one TV-series. He has received some literature prizes for his work, for example, the Finlandia Prize for the novel Juoksuhaudantie (Battle Trench Avenue). The same book was later made into a movie. For me, the most meaningful book written by Kari Hotakainen is Satukirja (Storybook). The book is considered for children and young adults, but I think that it suits all ages. All the stories are very imaginative and different. It is a huge possibility, that after reading one story you become addicted […]

Half open curtains

I’ll talk about the Belgian writer Herman Brusselmans. Why him? To reply in his own style: because this dickpick is probably the most f*cking interesting choice of them all. That’s right. I didn’t choose him because his oeuvre is close to my heart. Neither his high pitched literary style. Still, he is one of the greatest writers of Belgium. How did this come to be? Well, to start with, he is (unlike many colleagues) in front of the media. He keeps himself in the picture through talk shows and columns, where he likes to mock other celebrities and comments on certain situations. This provocative talk is also very typical for his books. The overall style elements are a Highly autobiographical […]

Gerwin van der Werf

The Writing Teacher Gerwin van der Werf is not a name that many non-Dutch people know nor are able to pronounce properly. Not a lot of Dutch people know him or his work either. He is not a famous writer of literature that creates complex novels with hidden themes and multiple meanings but he is one of the greatest Dutch writers. He has written four novels, Gewapende Man (2010), Wild (2011), Luchtvissers (2013) en Een Onbarmhartig Pad (2018). Apart from being a writer, he is also a music teacher at the high school I went to in the Netherlands. He is a teacher full of energy, full of empathy for his students and with a great sense of humor. He […]
