Células produtoras de mielina

Investigador português coordenou investigação sobre um conjunto de células que pode ter um papel importante na progressão da doença e que pode ser útil para novas abordagens terapêuticas. O alvo já tinha sido escolhido. O que se pretendia era investigar o papel de um conjunto específico de células, os oligodendrócitos, na progressão e origem da esclerose múltipla. Depois de um trabalho que usou o modelo do ratinho, Gonçalo Castelo Branco, investigador português no Instituto Karolinska, em Estocolmo, na Suécia, publicou um novo artigo na revista Nature sobre os resultados obtidos após a análise de amostras post mortem de cérebros de pacientes com esclerose múltipla.

Lil´kleine and Ronnie Flex

They conquered the world of the fourteen years old minds Lil’kleine and Ronnie Flex conquered the world of the fourteen years old minds and replace their thoughts of coke and chips for alcohol and drugs. If you want to chill, there is not a problem, because I will come. And of course, I never come alone, because I will always have alcohol and drugs with me. The controversial text wherein they mention that all teens say yes to MDMA is a search for the borders. They decided to cross that border in a mixture between pop and hip-hop. This song was the beginning of their bank accounts overloading with money. Nothing is too crazy. While Ronnie Flex focused more on […]

Queixas sobre a praxe diminuem

O ministro do Ensino Superior, Manuel Heitor, reconheceu que o sistema de queixas tem “um âmbito muito reduzido” porque há “muita inibição em fazer queixas”. O ministro do Ensino Superior afirmou esta quarta-feira, no parlamento, que as queixas relacionadas com as praxes passaram de 20 em 2016 para menos de cinco actualmente, defendendo que devem continuar a desenvolver-se actividades alternativas de integração de estudantes. “Sabemos que é um combate que tem de ser diário, contínuo e consecutivo”, disse Manuel Heitor perante os deputados da comissão de Educação e Ciência, na sequência de um requerimento do Bloco de Esquerda. Para o partido trata-se de uma prática “medievalesca”, que encerra em si “um pacto de silêncio” sobre uma “violência estrutural” que as […]

Architecture: The Penguin Pool

An example of Berthold Lubetkin’s extraordinary modernist vision The penguin pool which is placed in the London Zoo is a beautiful example of Berthold Lubetkin’s extraordinary modernist vision. Completed in 1934, it encapsulated an architectural transformation that was occurring in Britain at the time. Lubetkin who was a Jewish-Georgian immigrant to London pioneered modernism in the 1930s. His work transmitted and postulated the idea that architecture was a tool of social progression. Inspired by the French architect Auguste Perret, while studying in Paris, Lubetkin encompassed and embodied ideas of re-working the neoclassical style with newer materials like concrete. His architectural style was massively popular in Britain before the war, however, afterward, his ideas were halted by staunch conservatism and a […]

Wewelsburg Castle

They tried to burn the whole castle down, luckily without success. The most famous monument, in the region I live in, is the Wewelsburg Castle. It is a huge triangular Castle/fortress, whose history started in 1123, as a small, soon to be destroyed, city Wall like building. From 1301 until the 19th century, the Castle belonged to noblemen, bishops and the Prussian state and was more or less unknown to the overall population of Germany. This vastly changed in the 20th century during the time of the Second World War. Heinrich Himmler, the head of the SS (an elite police force of the Nazi regime), chose the Wewelsburg Castle as its headquarters, with the plan to turn it into the […]
