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. Desta vez, a investigação revela a diversidade das populações de oligodendrócitos numa nova perspectiva que poderá […]

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 […]

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 […]

Vida sob camadas de gelo?

Uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos levou a cabo uma investigação no lago Mercer, um dos mais profundos lagos escondidos por baixo do gelo que cobre a Antárctida, e encontraram vestígios de crustáceos e de um tardígrado. Sob as camadas de gelo que cobrem a Antárctida há muitos segredos por descobrir. Uma expedição recente ao continente gelado, liderada por uma equipa dos Estados Unidos com cerca de 50 membros, revelou algo surpreendente: sinais de vida nas águas do lago Mercer, por baixo de uma camada de gelo com 1068 metros de espessura, a cerca de 600 quilómetros do Pólo Sul. Dos 379 lagos que existem por baixo da superfície gelada na Antárctida (muitos deles ligados entre si), o Mercer […]

Hello and goodbye

One of the most important things of this year was, for me, meeting new people from other countries. This wasn’t hard because we share our room with one or two others and our kitchen with around sixty. I met new people so fast, and always forgot that I had to say goodbye at some point. That’s what I’m thinking about now, when more and more people are leaving. So many things have happened and I never expected the people here to become real friends of mine. When you see the people go you realise that a small part of your life came to its end, which makes me sad and happy at the same time. Sad because it was so […]

A minha experiência na Ucrânia

Sendo o EVS parte do programa ERASMUS+, não precisei de possuir muitos recursos para participar! Através da associação onde fui acolhido, fui enviado para 2 campos de férias (faz parte da tradição ucraniana no verão as crianças e jovens irem a campos de ferias). No primeiro campo fiquei 9 dias com cerca de 45 participantes, organização e mais 5 voluntários. Dormíamos em tendas no meio da floresta, a 5Km da fronteira com Rússia, basicamente sem rede telefónica. Além de desenvolver as nossas atividades também participava nas em muitas outras, desde jogar vólei, cantar, aprender a língua russa e ucraniana, ir tomar banho num rio e até buscar água para todo o campo de cavalo as 7h da manhã. No segundo […]

A paradise made of wood

In this text I want to tell you a little bit about my experience in this volunteering. Madeira is a Portuguese island whose history begins to count from the fifteenth century when it was permanently occupied for the first time. This information is important because my project is about the Madeiran legacy (the name of my project is Madeiran Heritage), and it tries to train volunteers to, through guided tours, show a piece of the history of Funchal (its capital), of the island in general, and some aspects of the history of Portugal. With the money that is obtained from this process we help for the different social projects of the University of Madeira. The project itself is very rewarding […]

Coming home

What is home for you? Where is home for you? How many homes can you actually have? Does it have to be family? Or can it be friends? I begin with these simple questions for you. Every volunteer has to go to two trainings: an on-arrival training and a mid-term training. Both of them take place on the mainland of Portugal. Most of us enjoy the time. We meet new friends, friends that experience the same but also the total opposite. I was actually lucky to go by myself because I am sure that it has you a whole different impact on you. And of course it is a nice opportunity to leave this island and get to know the […]

Future happens now

In 2015, a company from Hong Kong activated a humanoid robot named Sophia. She, because the robot is considered to be of female gender and is modeled after Audrey Hepburn, was interviewed in tv shows and by international organizations, such as United Nations. Although it is surely a great development, many people expressed their concerns that it may be dangerous for our race. Robot assured that she is only a peaceful creature built to help people, although the concerns escalated even more when for the question if she wants to destroy humans, asked by her creator, Sophia answered “OK. I will destroy humans.” Another controversy aroused this year when Sophia, as the first robot, got a nationality. Now she is […]

Weather changing

I write about November because it was a colder month in Madeira, a month of surprises. First I didn’t expected such a cold weather here. I mean it’s not so cold but it’s quite more than I expected from a semi tropical island. Also I had some troubles because the changing weather like for instance, I went to one levada, it was so sunny but in the middle of the levada it just rained a lot, so basically I walked for 6h under a really annoying rain (oh course I didn’t bring my umbrella). Another big change was the cold water on the beach, and that’s even in the warm days. Since the fact that November is not a touristic […]
