Belgian Monarch: King Boudewijn

Let’s talk about the most iconic king Belgium has had in its history. Boudewijn was born in 1930, son of Prince Leopold, and his mother Astrid of Sweden who died in an automobile accident in 1935. On 15th of December 1960 he married to Dona Fabiola, unfortunately, they had no children.

Pequim fixou como meta reduzir em 3% as emissões de dióxido de enxofre e óxido de nitrogénio, os dois principais gases poluentes. O primeiro-ministro chinês, Li Keqiang, afirmou nesta terça-feira que Pequim vai investir, este ano, 25 mil milhões de yuan (3.290 milhões de euros) no combate à poluição atmosférica, um aumento homólogo de 25%. Aqueles gastos estão previstos no relatório do Governo, apresentado por Li no arranque da sessão anual da Assembleia Nacional Popular (ANP), o legislativo chinês.

Friedrich Wilhelm III

Today’s article is about the German Emperor and King of Prussia He was born during the German monarchy on the 18th October 1831, in Potsdam and died at the age of 56, in June 1888. Friedrich was the son of the former Emperor Wilhelm the First and his wife Augusta. But the marriage wasn’t happy at all. Due to the fact that his parents had different opinions considering politics, Friedrich’s childhood was difficult and often lonely. His father was very conservative, so Friedrich had been raised in a military tradition since an early age. In spite of that, his mother had a more liberal point of view and persisted on an alternative to the military education, which was a classical […]

Telemóveis e a radiação

Não há provas científicas de que exista uma relação entre a radiação electromagnética e sintomas como dores de cabeça e cansaço. Num estudo do Instituto Superior Técnico, no ano lectivo de 2017/2018, 44% de mais de dez mil alunos do ensino básico e secundário mostraram-se preocupados com os possíveis efeitos das radiações dos telemóveis. Porém, não há fundamentação científica que justifique tal preocupação. No livro A Ciência e os Seus Inimigos (Gradiva, 2017), o físico Carlos Fiolhais e o bioquímico David Marçal explicam que a radiação dos telemóveis não é ionizante e, desta forma, é “bastante segura”. “Mas, nunca fiando: [por isso] ao logo das últimas décadas têm sido feitos numerosos estudos para avaliar os seus efeitos”, escrevem. Também no […]

The famous Royal Palace

The first Dutch historical and cultural monument of the Golden Age. The Royal Palace of Amsterdam is a palace on the Dam in the center of Amsterdam. Nowadays the palace is used by the Royal Family for reception occasions and exhibitions. The Palace was built in the style of the Dutch Classicism between 1648 and 1665 as a city hall and was designed by the architect Jacob van Campen. It cost around 8,5 million guilders. This was a lot of money, even during the 17th century well known as the Golden Age. Until the year of 1808, it served as a city hall. After that, the building was offered as a palace for King Lodewijk Napoleon. In 1813 the palace […]

ABIC critica Estatuto de Bolseiro

O pacote legislativo sobre ciência aprovado no último Conselho de Ministros é fortemente criticado pela comunidade científica “Para nós foi um choque porque continua a ser perpetuada a situação das bolsas como uma carreira paralela”. É assim que Sandra Pereira, presidente da Associação dos Bolseiros de Investigação Científica (ABIC), contactada pelo Expresso, reage à revisão do Estatuto de Bolseiro de Investigação Científica aprovada pelo Governo no Conselho de Ministros de 21 de fevereiro, no âmbito de um pacote legislativo relacionado com a ciência e o ensino superior. Sandra Pereira recorda que o ministro da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior, Manuel Heitor, “tinha dito à ABIC que ia manter apenas as bolsas de formação para a obtenção do grau de doutoramento, […]

Notre-Dame of Amiens

The Cathedral of Amiens is known as the vastest one in France. In the heart of a rich agricultural region of Northern France, the City of Amiens developed itself along the valley of the Somme. The city had during the medieval period a great influence. Indeed, the beginning of the construction of the Cathedral in 1220 highlighted the large prosperity of the Diocese at the time. The edification was quite fast. By the end of the Thirteenth Century, the building was almost complete. By this fact, Notre-Dame of Amiens offers an architectural uniqueness which is missing in most of its contemporary rivals. Incidentally, the Cathedral mixed simultaneously flamboyant and rayonnant Gothic styles. It became thus a source of inspiration for […]

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 […]

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. […]

The new generation in Poland

A mixture of folk tunes, with alternative pop and punk beats. Poland has several well-known classical composers as well as jazz musicians.  However, we can observe how the new music scene exploded. Unfortunately, this music is not internationally recognized. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to have a closer look and present one of the modern artists of the new generation- Monika Brodka. Her professional career started, as in the case of most young singers, during an audition for a music show. She won the third season of the Polish TV competition “Idol” in 2004 at the age of 17. The prize was to record a debut solo CD, which was called “Album”. The first two records of the […]
