The Cranberries

I have decided to write about the famous Irish rock group, ‘The Cranberries’, for my text this month. It all started back in the mid-1980s when Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler decided to form a band in their garage, inspired by bands such as The Smiths and The Cure. They struggled to find a lead singer until they came across Dolores O’Riordan who they described as ‘quiet as a mouse’ but when she started singing they were ‘blown away’. There was no question that they had found their fourth band member. As songwriters, Noel and Dolores gelled immediately however they never were in the same room while they both wrote songs. For the first two years, they wrote […]

Ligações entre átomos em vídeo

Ligação química entre átomos captada pela primeira vez em vídeo O fenómeno foi observado por cientistas da Universidade de Nottingham, na Inglaterra, a uma escala 500 mil vezes menor que um fio de cabelo humano Os átomos são conhecidos como os blocos de construção do mundo. No entanto, a possibilidade de assistirmos a ligações atómicas em tempo real estava longe de ser possível. Com comprimentos entre 0,1 e 0,3 nanómetros, estas ligações ocorrem a uma escala muito reduzida, difícil de ser captada por microcópios. Até agora, estas ligações eram mostradas em salas de aulas e laboratórios através de simuladores. No entanto, cientistas ingleses e alemães captaram agora, num vídeo de 18 segundos, dois átomos de rénio (Re) estabelecendo ligações químicas. […]

Marcel Hirscher

Austrian’s best alpine ski racer of all time. When I first was confronted with the task of writing an article about a famous Austrian Sportswoman / Sportsman, I did not know whom to pick at first.
