Die Ärzte

Today’s blog post is about a musician from my home country. Therefore, I decided to write about the popular band “Die Ärzte”. Since my early childhood, I have been a huge fan of this band. Perhaps this sounds a bit strange due to the fact that the band is considered to be a punk rock band but I still enjoy listening to their songs and watching their videos. Let me give you some information about this band. The band was founded in 1982 in Berlin by Bela B and Farin Urlaub, who are two of the three band members. Farin Urlaub, the guitar player, Bela B the drummer and Rodrigo Gonzales were part of this band until their breakup in […]

Dezembro é mês de chuva de estrelas

Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro e, depois, entre os dias 17 e 26. Para apreciar estas chuvas de estrelas não é necessário nenhum equipamento específico, basta olhar para o céu. Durante esta semana, vai poder assistir a uma chuva de estrelas — ou melhor, de meteoros das Gemínidas. Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro, apesar de já ter começado no dia 4 deste mês, mas com menos intensidade. “Popularmente, é conhecida por chuva de estrelas, mas o que de facto estamos a ver é um enxame de meteoros, pequenas partículas de poeira ou restos de rochas que entram na nossa atmosfera e começam a arder.

Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus

An example of how Max Raabe’s music transcends time and space. Max Raabe enriches the musical landscape both nationally and internationally by reviving chansons from the 1920s and 1930s, re-interpreting contemporary songs, and composing film scores. In his early childhood, Raabe became passionate about music and joined a children’s choir. To further develop his talents, he attended singing classes and ultimately decided to study music at the Berlin University of the Arts. In Berlin, he soon found like-minded people and established the Palace Orchestra in 1985. The orchestra specialized in performing music from the 1920s and 1930s. A decade later, the orchestra released a series of songs, one of which appeared in a German film production. Ever since, the orchestra […]

Maior extinção da história da Terra

O estudo divulgado pela revista Science revela que a extinção em massa que ocorreu há 252 milhões de anos foi causada pelo aquecimento global. 96% das espécies marinhas foram exterminadas.

The natural park is the crossroads of several levadas (paths). One of the easiest and most recommended trails is the Vereda dos Balcões that takes […]
