European elections and the future

This year my country celebrates 15 years of being a member of European Union. There were a lot of changes in Poland during that time – in my opinion mostly good ones. And thanks to it I could become an EVS volunteer in Madeira. Being a part of the European Union brought many advantages for young people who can now study or volunteer abroad. My parents didn’t have this opportunity and they are happy that I could go abroad thanks to the Erasmus+ program. In my opinion it’s very important for young people to get to know other cultures, learn languages, meet people from different countries, get experience in new areas. When they learn and get another point of view […]

Descoberto antídoto para veneno

Através de um medicamento usado para o colesterol, conseguiu-se parar a necrose e atenuar a dor provocada pela picada da vespa-do-mar em ratinhos. Ninguém se deixe encantar pela beleza da medusa Chironex fleckeri: ela tem veneno suficiente para matar mais de 60 pessoas. Conhecida como vespa-do-mar, esta medusa é assim um dos seres vivos mais venenosos do mundo. Portanto, a ambição para encontrar um antídoto que a afrontasse era grande. Agora, em testes com células humanas e de ratinhos, uma equipa de cientistas da Austrália e da China descobriu um medicamento que consegue bloquear os sintomas da picada desta medusa se for aplicado 15 minutos depois do ataque. No futuro, o objectivo é desenvolver um produto de uso tópico para […]

Liechtenstein and the EU

As you may or may not know Liechtenstein isn‘t actually in the European Union. Together with Norway and Iceland we belong to the European Economic Area. Liechtenstein joined the EEA in 1995, after becoming a full member of the EFTA (European free trade association) in 1991. Joining the EEA, also obliged Liechtenstein to apply some European Union laws because they are considered EEA relevant. There is some further cooperation with the EU via Switzerland as Liechtenstein is highly integrated with the Swiss economy (including using the Swiss francs). There are further agreements between Liechtenstein and the EU, on matters such as the Schengen agreement, taxation for savings and there are ongoing talks on combating fraud and exchanging information on tax matters.

Ensino Superior no interior do país

Plataforma Edulog faz avaliação crítica dos efeitos da medida que reduziu 1000 lugares no ensino superior de Porto e Lisboa. Dados dos colocados no regime geral que concretizaram inscrição só agora são conhecidos. A redução em 5% das vagas das instituições de ensino superior de Lisboa e do Porto “não produziu os efeitos desejados” na atracção de estudantes para as regiões do interior do país. O facto de mais de metade dos lugares cortados nas principais cidades do país terem ficado noutras cidades do litoral prejudicou a eficácia da medida. As conclusões são de uma avaliação, que será apresentada na próxima semana, feita pela plataforma Edulog à medida implementada pelo Governo. A decisão do Governo resultou num corte de 1008 […]

The future of the European Union

The elections to the European Parliament are approaching and, once again, millions of Europeans are called to vote. These elections are especially important, as crucial decisions will be taken in the coming years that will affect climate change, the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers and the sovereignty of the peoples of Europe. However, we can say that elections to the European Parliament do not usually attract much interest in the population, at least in Spain, because the power of the European Commission is perceived as something limited and distant that does not have much impact on the member States. Even so, I believe that we are living a decisive period in terms of the continuity of the Union, since […]

Violência doméstica como tortura?

A ministra da Justiça admitiu hoje analisar o alargamento do conceito jurídico de tortura aos crimes relacionados com violência doméstica. Francisca Van Dunem disse, na inauguração de um novo espaço de apoio às vítimas de violência na comarca de Lisboa Oeste, em Sintra, que o alargamento do conceito da tortura a situações relacionadas com a violência doméstica “é uma questão a ser analisada”, no âmbito de um conjunto de obrigações que resultam “de convenções e tratados internacionais de que Portugal faz parte”. “Há sempre questões que eventualmente ficam ao lado ou são questões que ficam marginalizadas”, reconheceu a governante, acrescentando que irá analisar a questão e se verá a “sequência é que é possível dar” em termos da transposição para […]

Christmas, Easter and Carnival

Every family has their own Christmas traditions Christmas In my family, Christmas always begins with the decorating of the Christmas tree. Later, we usually cook some sweet food. So, we made some chocolate truffles for us and the family, and we also made “fruits déguisés” some dry fruits filled with almond paste. For the Christmas dinner with my family, we eat smoked salmon and foie gras which is cooked duck liver. We also eat turkey filled with chestnuts. And for dessert, we eat la buche, a cake in the shape of a wood log with a glass of champagne. We open the presents usually after dinner on the 24th of December. Every family has their own Christmas traditions but regarding […]

Traditions in my country

My favorite tradition of all in the U.K is the Notting Hill Carnival. Traditions in the UK vary depending on which part of the country you are from. Traditional religious festivities such as Christmas and Easter have less religious connotations attached to them due to an ever-increasing secular society. Corporate interest and late-stage capitalism have also averted the traditions of these celebrations, towards culture and industry of shopping and consuming. The traditions that occur in my family household, are quite simple nowadays. If you are from a religious family, then you might attend midnight mass on the 24th of December, however, we just drink some prosecco and watch a Christmas film or an episode of Only Fools and Horses, a British […]

Têm aulas sobre emoções

Identificar as emoções e aprender a geri-las desde pequenos é também uma forma de prevenir problemas na infância e adolescência, diz directora de escola de Leiria. Num congresso no ISCTE vai-se debater a empatia. Valentim, 7 anos, diz que está ali “para aprender a ficar mais alegre”. A alegria foi um dos sentimentos que estavam a trabalhar na aula a partir de um pequeno vídeo de animação. Da alegria foram até ao orgulho. “Sinto orgulho quando sinto que vou conseguir”, define Valentim, que dirá depois ao PÚBLICO que a “atitude” de que “gosta mais” é a paciência. “Às vezes fico impaciente porque o meu mano mais novo está sempre a interromper-me e não quero ficar assim.” Ao fim de quase […]

Joseph Stalin’s “gift” to Poles

It has 44 floors, 3,288 rooms and the mysterious underground The Palace of Culture and Science is located in the center city centre of Warsaw and it is the main landmark.

Setting the height of the building, of course took place with the participation of architects from the Soviet Union.

The Parliament Building in Vaduz

The Parliament Building of Liechtenstein is on the Peter-Kaiser square in the city center of Vaduz. The Government’s building is right next to it on the Peter-Kaiser square. Together with the Government building, the national archive and the parliament form the government district in Vaduz. The Government building was constructed between 1903 and 1905 according to plans drawn by the Viennese architect Gustav Ritter von Neumannt.

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 […]

The Castle of Vaduz

The palace and official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein The castle of Vaduz (formerly known as Hohenliechtenstein) is the palace and official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. The castle gave its name to the town of Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, which it overlooks from an adjacent hilltop. It was built in the 12th century by the counts of Werdenberg-Sargans, who were also the former owners of the castle. In the Swabian war of 1499, the castle was burned by the Swiss Confederacy. The castle was expanded by Count Caspar of Hohenems. The Princely Family of Liechtenstein acquired Vaduz Castle in 1712 when it purchased the Countship of Vaduz. At this time, Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, combined […]
