ABIC critica Estatuto de Bolseiro

O pacote legislativo sobre ciência aprovado no último Conselho de Ministros é fortemente criticado pela comunidade científica “Para nós foi um choque porque continua a ser perpetuada a situação das bolsas como uma carreira paralela”. É assim que Sandra Pereira, presidente da Associação dos Bolseiros de Investigação Científica (ABIC), contactada pelo Expresso, reage à revisão do Estatuto de Bolseiro de Investigação Científica aprovada pelo Governo no Conselho de Ministros de 21 de fevereiro, no âmbito de um pacote legislativo relacionado com a ciência e o ensino superior. Sandra Pereira recorda que o ministro da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior, Manuel Heitor, “tinha dito à ABIC que ia manter apenas as bolsas de formação para a obtenção do grau de doutoramento, […]

Notre-Dame of Amiens

The Cathedral of Amiens is known as the vastest one in France. In the heart of a rich agricultural region of Northern France, the City of Amiens developed itself along the valley of the Somme. The city had during the medieval period a great influence. Indeed, the beginning of the construction of the Cathedral in 1220 highlighted the large prosperity of the Diocese at the time. The edification was quite fast. By the end of the Thirteenth Century, the building was almost complete. By this fact, Notre-Dame of Amiens offers an architectural uniqueness which is missing in most of its contemporary rivals. Incidentally, the Cathedral mixed simultaneously flamboyant and rayonnant Gothic styles. It became thus a source of inspiration for […]

O Facebook e o bem-estar

Estudo da Universidade Stanford e da Universidade de Nova Iorque confirma ganhos no bem-estar após um mês sem acesso ao Facebook, bem como um decréscimo da polarização política. Mas também reconhece os benefícios da utilização da rede. Quanto pagaria por mês para poder continuar a aceder ao Facebook? Apesar de todos os escândalos de uso indevido de dados pessoais e da sensação de que a maior rede social tem contribuído para mostrarmos o pior de nós, o facto é que a maioria dos utilizadores tem ignorado apelos ao boicote à plataforma. E, a julgar pelos resultados de um estudo da Universidade Stanford e da Universidade de Nova Iorque realizado nos Estados Unidos, estaria mesmo disposta a pagar para continuar a […]

Cubus: a giant grey square

Squares are not only for playing poker! In a town near to where I live in Bregenz, there is a House called Cubus, the Cubus is a giant grey square. This square is used as a museum for all kind of arts. Mostly artists of the new art wave expose their art in there. This interesting building was built in 1978 with the purpose of being a museum of modern arts. I chose this building because for me it is the most and best-known house of modern arts around. I have got to be honest, the arts are not my favorite type of creative outlets, but even though the couple of times I was there due to school trips, this […]

OCDE comenta formação de adultos

A falta de habilitações é uma das barreiras mais comuns na hora de tentar regressar ao mercado de trabalho, nota a OCDE. Apesar do aumento dos estágios, as taxas de participação na educação e formação de adultos “são particularmente baixas”. As pessoas com baixa escolaridade representam cerca de dois terços dos desempregados de longa duração em Portugal. Embora tenha descido nos últimos anos, o desemprego entre os menos escolarizados continua elevado no país, à semelhança do que se passa com o desemprego jovem, em comparação com os restantes 35 países da Organização para a Cooperação e Desenvolvimento Económico (OCDE). O que leva esta organização, no seu mais recente relatório sobre Portugal, divulgado esta segunda-feira, a recomendar a melhoria do sistema […]

Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna

It is nearly the only example of Austrian Rococo style It was built as the main summer residence of the Habsburg rulers and is located in Hietzing, Vienna. The Baroque Palace has about 1441 rooms and is one of the most important architectural, cultural and historical monuments in Austria. In 1569, King Maximilian II bought the place where the palace is now to use it for hunting. One year later the hunting lodge was built.

Saúde mental e colesterol alto

Projectos sobre transtorno obsessivo-compulsivo e sobre uma doença genética chamada hipercolesterolemia familiar foram distinguidos com uma menção honrosa do Prémio Bial 2018, dedicado à investigação clínica. Apesar do mérito que reconhece ao trabalho vencedor do Prémio Bial de Medicina Clínica, o patologista e especialista de renome na área do cancro da tiróide (e da comunicação de ciência) Sobrinho Simões desabafa que não acha “o cancro muito interessante. “Aquilo é muito orgânico, não tem emoções”, justifica, acrescentando que já “a cabeça tem uma graça do caraças”. A conversa vem a propósito de uma das duas menções honrosas incluídas no Prémio Bial 2018, no valor de 10 mil euros cada, que é um trabalho de Óscar Gonçalves, professor catedrático na Escola de […]

The controversial architecture of the building. The Centre Georges Pompidou is a building in Paris, in the Beaubourg area.

Adeus, Opportunity

Após 15 anos, a missão do robô Opportunity terminou. Deixa-nos provas de que Marte pode ter tido vida no passado e muitas imagens bonitas do planeta vermelho. Opportunity – o duradouro robô da NASA que só foi concebido para caminhar na superfície de Marte durante três meses – parou de comunicar com a Terra depois de 15 anos de missão, revelou esta quarta-feira a NASA.

Reforestation Activity

 Reforestation Activity shared with you by our European volunteers! Gratifying experience On the first of December 2018, several volunteers took part in a reforestation project in our local Parque Ecológico. In the beginning, we were given a short introduction and learned of the variety and numerous species residing in the ecological park. Moreover, we learned of the devastating wildfires, which were the reason for our activity. Shortly afterwards, we were allowed to start planting young trees under the supervision of an experienced park ranger. This planting task was very enjoyable, as we were able to combine enjoying a beautiful scenery with the fulfilling sense of being able to take part in something long-lasting and ecologically important. Especially nowadays, as we […]

A Musician from my Country?

I picked a musician from Austria There are no famous musicians from Liechtenstein. As you may know, Liechtenstein is a very small country. Therefore it is very hard to find a famous musician from there, because, we don’t have any successful musicians. We do have small bands and other music groups, but none of them are worth writing about, so I picked a musician from Austria to write about instead. So the musician I’m writing about instead is called “Yung Hurn”. He’s an Austrian Rapper from the capital Vienna. His original name is Julian Sellmeister and he was born in 1995. He dropped out of high school and started rapping. His mixtape “22” was an instant hit, especially his hit […]
