A Musician from my Country?

I picked a musician from Austria There are no famous musicians from Liechtenstein. As you may know, Liechtenstein is a very small country. Therefore it is very hard to find a famous musician from there, because, we don’t have any successful musicians. We do have small bands and other music groups, but none of them are worth writing about, so I picked a musician from Austria to write about instead. So the musician I’m writing about instead is called “Yung Hurn”. He’s an Austrian Rapper from the capital Vienna. His original name is Julian Sellmeister and he was born in 1995. He dropped out of high school and started rapping. His mixtape “22” was an instant hit, especially his hit […]

Austrian Legend: Falco

He lived how he died… SPECTACULAR When I got the email with the information about this month’s article I was just listening to “Ganz Wien” by the Austrian legend Falco! So, obviously, the case was clear and I chose him for this Text. Falco, whose birth name is Johann “Hans” Hölzl was born in 1957 in Vienna. Falco attended several different forms of education and schools, however, none of them seemed to fit. In the end, he quit his music studies because “he wanted to become a real musician”. His first studio album “Der Kommissar” (the commissioner) rapidly dominated the Austrian club scene and was wildly popular in several other European countries. His second album “Junge Roemer” was, sadly, kind […]

Governo defende o E.S. gratuito

“Se não reduzirmos de forma drástica os custos com o ensino superior não vamos conseguir que os filhos de classe média consigam estudar no ensino superior”, alertou Pedro Nuno Santos. Os secretários de Estado da Educação e dos Assuntos Parlamentares defenderam nesta segunda-feira um ensino superior tendencialmente gratuito, tal como previsto na Constituição, posição também assumida pelo ministro do Ensino Superior. Foi na Convenção Nacional do Ensino Superior 2030, que decorre no ISCTE-IUL, em Lisboa, que os governantes salientaram a importância de um ensino superior gratuito, à semelhança do que já acontece com o ensino básico e secundário. Depois da declaração do ministro Manuel Heitor, foi a vez da secretária de Estado Adjunta e da Educação, Alexandra Leitão, e do secretário […]

Universidades não registam plágios

Todas as instituições têm regulamentos para punir fraude académica e apenas uma, o Politécnico de Beja, não dispõe de software próprio para detectar plágios. Burocracia interna dissuade os professores de reportarem casos. Dois terços das instituições de ensino superior não dispõem de dados sobre os casos de plágio ou fraude cometidos pelos seus alunos em provas ou trabalhos académicos. Este número é o resultado de um inquérito feito pelo PÚBLICO ao qual responderam mais de metade das universidades e politécnicos públicos. Entre as que recolhem estas informações, registam-se em média 3,3 casos de fraude por ano. É um número “muito baixo”, comenta Aurora Teixeira, do Observatório de Economia e Gestão de Fraude. No final de Novembro passado, a Universidade de […]

Kojey Radical

A  musical phenomenon. A hip/hop star that defies boundaries. I would say that I am blessed to be from a country that has contributed a prolific amount of talent to popular and underground music. From Elgar to Bowie, and Henry Purcell to Radiohead, the small but hugely important island that I call home has changed the sound and shifted the landscape of music throughout history. However, it is an established name in the London hip/hop scene that I wish to spotlight. Kojey Radical, from East London, has seen a transition from spoken word poetry to a lyrical rap heavyweight in an outstandingly short amount of time. He has already garnered praise and features from grime legends Wretch 32 and Ghetts. […]

NASA explora Ultima Thule

Os cientistas esperam que esta observação, a cerca de 6,4 mil milhões de quilómetros da Terra, ajude a entender melhor como o sistema solar foi formado. O primeiro dia do ano de 2019 vai ficar na história: “Nunca antes uma nave espacial explorou um objecto tão distante”, relevou esta terça-feira o cientista chefe da NASA responsável pela sonda New Horizons, Alan Stern, referindo-se ao Ultima Thule, um objecto localizado na cintura de Kuiper, uma zona mais periférica do nosso sistema solar. Ultima Thule fica a cerca de 6,4 mil milhões de quilómetros da Terra e os cientistas esperam que sua observação ajude a entender melhor como o sistema solar foi formado. A Sonda espacial terá tirado cerca de 900 imagens […]

From Poland to Funchal

It’s hard to believe that my locality and Funchal have anything in common. The place where I come from is located in the center of Poland. It is a peaceful countryside where days pass slowly. There is neither a river or lake. Unlike Funchal, which is surrounded by waves of the Atlantic Ocean. No doubt Funchal and whole Madeira have unbelievably varied and beautiful flora. Much more diversified than flora in my countryside. Nevertheless, forests remind me my countryside. Especially during the Levada walks I have that familiar feeling of peace and relaxation. Another similarity is the hospitality of local people. Their kindness and willingness to help others bring to my mind my family and friends who wish me well. […]

Unknown Similarities

Unknown similarities found even in distant and most different places. How to compare two places that appear to be so completely different at first glance? Funchal, the thriving southern metropolis and my small home village Husen, a part of western Germany, totally unknown to 99% of the world’s population. My village consists of round about 1,000 people, a stark contrast to the population of Funchal with its over 110,000 inhabitants. And even if we take a look at the two cities my village belongs to, Lichtenau and Paderborn, there do not seem to be that many similarities. The most obvious connection might be the big Portuguese community in Paderborn, which offers Fado concerts, as well as Portuguese language and cooking […]

Differences: Kajaani and Funchal

There is still one significant similarity. European Union. Today’s temperature in Funchal is 25 degrees. In my home city, Kajaani, it is 5 degrees. Here in Funchal, we have palm trees, sand, flowers, and an ocean. In Kajaani, we have grass, birch trees, and lakes. By night streets of Funchal are full of people. By night in Kajaani, there are no people on the streets, and actually not necessarily in days. My name is Anni Ruskela and I am from Kajaani, Finland. Currently, I live here in Funchal, Madeira. I am going to stay here for seven months. It already feels like I have been here many months. Funchal is already my second home; all these streets that I am […]

Embracing a city

When I think about Amsterdam, I think about the sensory experiences of the city. The sound of tourists’ suitcases rolling over cobblestones, the penetrating smell when you pass a coffee shop in one of the alleyways or the rain on your skin when you’re cycling to the other side of town. I think about crowded cafes when our football team plays. How whole streets turn orange, our national color, and the excitement on people’s faces. How people cheer when our team scores and how the cafes turn to silent mumbling and cursing when the other team scores. How you can’t get out of these places without having had a beer shower or being hugged by random strangers when the orange […]

A small Dutch village

Smell the freshly cut grass, look at the swallows and make a trip on the tractor. Kolderveen is an extremely small village where you can find a lot of cows, horses, tourists and many seniors on electric bicycles. Literally, Kolderveen consists of only one street which is almost 2,5 km long. I think with around 200 inhabitants there live many more cows and horses then people. The Netherlands has twelve provinces, Kolderveen belongs to the province Drenthe which lies in the north of the Netherlands. Three of the provinces , included Drenthe, in the north of the Netherlands are well known because of the meadows, farms and sober people compared with the environment of the four biggest cities called the […]

More cows than people

A hidden region between some alpine mountains. On first sight, the Bregenzerwald may seem a bit boring, but well, it isn’t. We got so much more to offer than just cows and cheese, although these are deeply connected to our cultural life. This article should be about my ‘hometown’ and yes, Alberschwende is my ‘hometown’, but it’s actually a small village, inside the Bregenzerwald region, with about 3.300 people living there. Even though I’m not really the biggest fan of Alberschwende there are a few things worth mentioning. The most popular thing of ours may be the ‘KulturKäsKlatsch'”, which could be translated into ‘CultureCheeseClub’. The ‘KäsKlatsch’ takes place every Thursday next to our church. By the way, right behind the […]
