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 […]

Centro espacial dos Açores

Divulgados os resultados da primeira fase da criação de uma base para lançar pequenos foguetões da ilha de Santa Maria. Seguir-se-á, no início do próximo ano, o lançamento de um concurso internacional. A meta é ter foguetões a descolar com satélites daqui a três anos. As empresas aeroespaciais de todo o mundo tinham sido convidadas no final de Setembro para manifestarem o seu interesse, até 31 de Outubro, na criação de um centro espacial nos Açores. Agora o ministro da Ciência, Manuel Heitor, anunciou os resultados dessa auscultação: 14 consórcios internacionais, que incluem 12 empresas portuguesas, manifestaram interesse em conceber, instalar e operar um centro espacial nos Açores, na ilha de Santa Maria. O lugar de Malbusca, no Sul da […]

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 […]

Cities of the World

Boom and Funchal offers a big list of cultural activities As Boom and Funchal are quite different in infrastructure and style, they are both considered to be world cities by size, recognisability, and status. They both host a great number of people as Funchal is a touristic hub under the Madeiran flag, so does the annual gathering of people in the city of Boom for the biggest music festival in the world, Tomorrowland.

O que nos faz gostar de ter medo?

O medo, sentido de forma segura, ajuda a “desligar o cérebro” durante as situações assustadoras, dando um sentimento de conquista, de se ter ultrapassado um obstáculo. Mas tudo tem de ser feito de forma voluntária. Estar numa situação de medo e perigo de forma voluntária pode parecer contra-natura, mas é isso que acontece quando alguém decide ver um filme de terror ou entrar numa casa assombrada – mesmo que o perigo não seja real. Mas há alguma vantagem em sentir medo, calafrios, sustos e arrepios? “Ironicamente, o medo reduz o stress e a ansiedade”, explica ao PÚBLICO a investigadora norte-americana Margee Kerr, conhecida como a “socióloga do medo”, que publicou no início de Outubro um estudo no site da American Psychological Association sobre o […]

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 […]

Alojamento para alunos deslocados

O Governo actualizou o levantamento divulgado em Maio e concluiu que as 15.370 camas para estudantes chegam para apenas 13,5% dos deslocados. No ISCTE, onde só há lugar para 3,4% dos alunos que estão a estudar fora da área de residência, prevêem-se 54 novas camas “muito em breve”. O ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa está entre as instituições de ensino superior no país que mais falham na oferta de camas para os estudantes deslocados: aqui, só há lugar para apenas 3,4% dos alunos que se encontram foram da sua área de residência. Pior ainda está o Instituto Politécnico do Cávado e do Ave, com um rácio de camas/deslocados de apenas 2,6%. Estas conclusões estão contidas no diagnóstico que o […]

So far and so close

When I arrived in Funchal, It felt like home. I arrived in Funchal short time ago, so it’s a bit difficult for me to talk about similarities when I hardly know the idiosyncrasies of Madeiran people. However, I must say that I immediately felt at home. I come from San Sebastian, a city in the Basque Country, in the north of Spain, but I am a French resident since 2012. When I arrived in Funchal, I had the feeling of being in a known place, even though I had never been here. The people are friendly and warm and they immediately treat you as if they knew you. I think one of the biggest similarities with my hometown, is that […]

Barcelona, my home city

Barcelona, attractive for everyone I am a city girl. I have lived all my life in the heart of Barcelona, watching the Sagrada Familia from my window and born in one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in the city, Sant Pau hospital. In Barcelona you can find art and history along with modernity and diversification. In the city you can stroll through modern neighborhoods, such as Poble Nou, full of new construction. On the top of that, the historic centre of Barcelona is a beautiful medieval area: the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic). Full of streets with interesting details, squares with history and famous churches. The geographical area, the food and the climate of Barcelona are some of the […]

Bludenz: my home before Madeira

About the life in a small town between alps. Since I am born I life in Bludenz, which is a small town in the western part of Austria.

Bludenz is also a great place to stay if you like hiking. It is the meeting point of several valleys as e.g. Walgau, […]

Meet Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Vaduz is the capital city of Liechtenstein, a small country between Austria and Switzerland and also my home. Liechtenstein is a very small country so its cities are also very small. Liechtenstein has almost 38000 inhabitants and the whole country has only 160km². Although Vaduz is the capital city, it is not the city with the greatest number of inhabitants. Schaan, the city next to Vaduz has more inhabitants. Vaduz has many beautiful spots even though it is very small compared to other cities. Vaduz is the city with the castle in which the Prince lives with his family. Underneath the castle is the “Städtle”, the city center with shops and the government building. It`s where you can also find […]

Marianne Thieme

At the front of the European Animal and environmental rights. Animal and environmental rights are a big topic in the Netherlands. The country is the first country in the world with a political party with among its main goals animal- and environmentally friendly policy. Although the Party for the Animals considers itself to be a testimony party – a party which does not seek to gain political power but focuses on its principles and thereby influencing other parties – the party is gaining more followers every year. Last March during the municipal elections in the capital Amsterdam the party went from 12 seats to 33 seats. Represented in the parliament, senate and European parliament, the party is also becoming more […]

Jordi Pujol

He kept hidden funds in tax havens for more than three decades. In the last years in Spain have been uncovered many cases of corruption among politicians of different parties. One of the most scandalous committed frauds is leaded by Pujols’ family. Jordi Pujol is a Spanish politician considered a reference and historical leader of the region of Catalonia. When democracy was established in Spain, he won the first Catalan parliamentary elections and remained in the position for 23 years widely supported by the voters. He was the founder of Convergència Democràtica and he is a symbol of Catalan nationalism. But his lasts declarations were not closely related to the independence of Catalonia.
