The artist with a funny mustache

A young man who became very famous in a very short time. Young man, born in the city just next to mine, who became very famous in a very short time and became one of my favorites musicians. If you ask me about polish musicians I won’t tell you much – usually, I listen to music from abroad. This summer my friends invited me to join them for a music festival, where I have discovered there is a lot of great artists who actually sing in polish. One of them was Dawid Podsiadlo, a 25 years old singer with a great voice and unique style. Dawid Podsiadlo started his career as a musician after winning “X Factor” show in 2012 and […]

Laboratórios, materiais e leis

Universidades e centros de investigação têm dúvidas sobre a aplicação de decreto-lei publicado no Verão. Governo diz que o que falta é uma desburocratização das instituições. Imagine-se a seguinte situação: uma revista de grande reputação publica um artigo sobre um reagente químico que depressa se torna essencial na investigação científica. Esse produto é apenas comercializado por um único fornecedor estrangeiro, que teria que estar inscrito no Portal da Contratação Pública para poder vender o produto aos centros de investigação portugueses. Como essa empresa não o faz, a instituição portuguesa não pode, por isso, fazer a compra. O cenário não é apenas hipotético: tem-se colocado com frequência. O Governo criou, no Verão, um novo regime para simplificar os processos de compra […]

Czesław Niemen

Czesław Niemen one of the greatest Polish singers and composers. He made his debut in the early 1960s.

He was one of the first artists in Poland who introduced the original style of psychedelia. He was distinguished by his long hair and colorful clothes, which was unusual in communist Poland. He recorded a song called “Strange is This World” (Polish “Dziwny jest ten świat”), inspired by Percy Sledge’s song “When a man loves a woman” and James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World”.

Sonda chinesa Chang’e 4 pousou no lado oculto da Lua com sementes de algodão, colza, batata, ovos de mosca-da-fruta e algumas leveduras. A semente de algodão brotou. A missão espacial chinesa que enviou a sonda Chang’e 4 (o nome da deusa chinesa da Lua) para o lado oculto do satélite natural da Terra conseguiu fazer brotar uma semente de algodão em solo lunar.

O anúncio foi feito pela agência oficial chinesa Xinhua. A imagem está longe de ser deslumbrante. Os que esperam ver a bonita flor branca de algodão a brotar no solo […]

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 […]

Understanding Chaucer

The life and work of Geoffrey Chaucer, and understanding the contradictory nature of his writing. Before there was Shakespeare, Geoffrey Chaucer was considered the father of English literature. Born in 1343, Chaucer was a prominent member of the royal courts of both Edward III and Richard II, however, he was most well known for his writing, with his most celebrated work being The Canterbury Tales. Chaucer began writing fiction in the late 1360s and pioneered in a new literary style. He introduced a new poetic structure, more similar to the European style than his Anglo-Saxon predecessors. This was presumably inspired by his time in France, where he was a prisoner of war, and this style went on to inspire Shakespeare’s […]

King Manuel I, a King of Portugal

He played an important role in the expansion of the Power of Portugal Hey guys! After telling you my first impressions about the Island, then about food, and last time about a little bit of Flora and Fauna, in this article we will talk about History, and one of the Kings of Portugal. So let’s speak about King Manuel I, a King of Portugal between 1495 (when he received the Crown in Lisbon) and 1521. He was born on 31st of May 1469 in Alcochete (Portugal, facing Lisbon on the East) and died in Lisbon in December 1521. Son of Ferdinand, a little brother of King Afonso V (King between 1438 and 1481), Manuel succeeded to his cousin John II […]

King Dom Carlos

He became king in 1889 which was a time of crisis. Dom Carlos might have not been the last king on the throne of Portugal and the Algarve but his rule is often associated with the end of the monarchy. The image of the Portuguese monarchy was severely damaged after the government showed weakness facing the British. From today’s view, you might say that Dom Carlos had no great talent in politics, as he is still blamed for the end of the Portuguese monarchy. It did not make it easier to seem like a confident king. Instead, the population noticed quite fast that he could not stand its ground against the British Empire. Portugal’s plan was to have sovereignty over […]
