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 […]

Kojey Radical

A  musical phenomenon. A hip/hop star that defies boundaries. I would say that I am blessed to be from a country that has contributed a prolific amount of talent to popular and underground music. From Elgar to Bowie, and Henry Purcell to Radiohead, the small but hugely important island that I call home has changed the sound and shifted the landscape of music throughout history. However, it is an established name in the London hip/hop scene that I wish to spotlight. Kojey Radical, from East London, has seen a transition from spoken word poetry to a lyrical rap heavyweight in an outstandingly short amount of time. He has already garnered praise and features from grime legends Wretch 32 and Ghetts. […]

No total, foram consideradas 98 variáveis distintas que incluem o contexto religioso, político e económico dos países, bem como a liberdade de imprensa, o índice de desenvolvimento humano e a popularidade de debates na Internet sobre a legalização da cannabis.

NASA explora Ultima Thule

Os cientistas esperam que esta observação, a cerca de 6,4 mil milhões de quilómetros da Terra, ajude a entender melhor como o sistema solar foi formado. O primeiro dia do ano de 2019 vai ficar na história: “Nunca antes uma nave espacial explorou um objecto tão distante”, relevou esta terça-feira o cientista chefe da NASA responsável pela sonda New Horizons, Alan Stern, referindo-se ao Ultima Thule, um objecto localizado na cintura de Kuiper, uma zona mais periférica do nosso sistema solar. Ultima Thule fica a cerca de 6,4 mil milhões de quilómetros da Terra e os cientistas esperam que sua observação ajude a entender melhor como o sistema solar foi formado. A Sonda espacial terá tirado cerca de 900 imagens […]

Belgian Musician

Let me introduce Bart Peeters: a Belgian musician, singer, and actor Bart August Maria Peeters was born on the 30th of November 1959 and has had a prolific history in acting, producing music and presenting television shows in Belgium. He actually studied Germanic philology before getting into small television gigs and gathering notoriety in the small country that is Belgium. He would attend drama classes early on in life, where he met Jan Leyers and Hugo Matthyssen, of whom he would later collaborate within both the fields of music (in the form of a band) and the television world, producing children’s entertainment shows. He is famous for one of the best-known kids television shows in Flemish history “Dag Sinterklaas”, in […]

Saturno poderá perder os seus anéis

Os anéis são uma das imagens de marca do sexto planeta a contar do Sol, mas a NASA revela que a estrutura não só é recente como é provável que desapareça daqui a 100 milhões de anos. Saturno é conhecido pelos seus anéis, mas a estrutura de anéis que o orbita pode vir a desaparecer em “breve”: 100 milhões de anos podem parecer muito para uma vida humana, mas é pouco em termos cósmicos. Um estudo publicado em Novembro na revista científica Icarus e agora divulgado pela NASA revela que o material que constitui os anéis está a “chover” no planeta – a um ritmo que os cientistas referem ser o “pior cenário possível”. Só por causa dessa chuva, os […]

The new generation in Poland

A mixture of folk tunes, with alternative pop and punk beats. Poland has several well-known classical composers as well as jazz musicians.  However, we can observe how the new music scene exploded. Unfortunately, this music is not internationally recognized. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to have a closer look and present one of the modern artists of the new generation- Monika Brodka. Her professional career started, as in the case of most young singers, during an audition for a music show. She won the third season of the Polish TV competition “Idol” in 2004 at the age of 17. The prize was to record a debut solo CD, which was called “Album”. The first two records of the […]

Golden Earring

The oldest still existing rock band from The Hague since 1961. In 1961, when the 13-year old George Kooymans (guitar), his 15-year old neighbor friend Rinus Gerritsen (bass guitar) and another 15-year old neighbor friend Fred van Hilst (drums) decided to begin a band, they named it The Tornados. But they discovered there was already a band in The Hague called The Tornados so afterward, they changed their band name into Golden Earring. I’ve been drivin’ all night, my hands wet on the wheel. The most famous song of Golden Earring is definitely Radar Love and also one of my favorites, of course. The song was recorded in 1973 and the band went international because of this song. For example, […]

Safety on the trail

Stay safe while hiking on Madeira! Having done hundreds of kilometers of Madeiran levadas and veredas, I feel like iI’m in a good position to write a few words about a very important topic – safety on the trail. Divided into four categories, I present you some safety rules to keep in mind. Before you go for a hike Remember that the weather on Madeira changes often and fast – therefore you should not only check the most recent weather forecast for the part of the island you plan to explore, but also have a look at the online cameras spread all over Madeira (google “madeira webcams”) to see what the situation looks like at the moment. Due to the […]

Living in a island

Living in a island is wonderful, you have the sea near of your house and a nice weather almost all the year But sometimes it’s not so good … A few days ago I was planning a holiday’s trip, the tickets were very cheap (round-trip from Madrid to France 15€ ) but the problem was that going out of the island costed 300€ the same round-trip, so I felt caught and frustrated. Some days before it I was talking with two friends and one of them (from Lisbon) asked me, wouldn’t you live here for the whole life? And I answered of course not. Well, I recognize it leaving here is quite nice, the people is wonderful, also the food, […]

Souvenirs

Are you going on your vacation or actually you are there, but don’t know what to buy as a souvenir? Come on! It is not so difficult at all, is it? We are different, so our taste as well. For one of us the perfect souvenir is postcard, the others might choose some parts of clothes with logo of hosting city. How the situation looks in the most popular destinations for travelling on the Globe? In London people willingly buy thousands kinds of fridge magnet with images of historical attractions and royals, of course. In Paris the winners are white t-shirt and small pendant, both present the Eiffel Tower. What about Funchal? Which object is the most valuable for our […]

Christmas time

This moment of the year is for me really important and emotional as I am writing this text few days before Christmas. Funchal looks fabulous with all light decorations but I still cannot feel that this time is just about to start. What am I missing? I have never spent these holidays abroad, even taking into account the fact that I had already lived abroad before. Beyond the whole religious aspect, this time is really significant for me as my entire family can be together which is normally not so easy as we live in different places. What I appreciate most in Poland is the festive atmosphere when you look out the window and see that snowy and cold land […]

Funchal

The isolated capital of the pearl of the Atlantic Funchal is, depending on whom you ask either a big or a tiny city. The capital of Madeira counts more or less 112.000 inhabitants and is the largest city of the island. But what is Funchal for me? I have been in Madeira for one and a half month now and had enough time to get the first impression of its landscape and also its capital Funchal. When I arrived here I thought that Funchal has everything one could wish for. And that is right… at least when you are a tourist. Here, you can find a bunch of souvenir shops, a lot of cafes and restaurants and a mass of […]

Hiking in Porto Santo

Golden Island is not only the beach! We’ve been told by a number of people that the best time to visit Porto Santo is early Autumn, when the weather is still great but as it’s no longer the high season, the place is more calm and relaxed. Peace and quiet was exactly what we needed, so in the middle of October, after months of waiting for the right moment, we finally got ourselves our tickets to the Golden Island. I imagine most of the people head to Porto Santo with that spectacular 9 km long sandy beach in mind, but I was never too much of a beach person. All my attention and all my curiosity was with the hills […]
