Ibuprofeno como um anticancerígeno?

Trabalho do Instituto Ricardo Jorge revela efeitos anticancerígenos do medicamento anti-inflamatório. O anti-inflamatório ibuprofeno tem efeitos anticancerígenos sobretudo no cancro do colón, inibindo o crescimento de células malignas, revela uma investigação do Instituto Nacional de Saúde Dr. Ricardo Jorge (INSA). Investigadores do INSA, associados ao Instituto de Biossistemas e Ciências Integrativas da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa, descreveram uma nova perspectiva sobre os efeitos anticancerígenos do ibuprofeno, que foi publicada na revista European Medical Journal.

The italian Genius

Leonardo da Vinci is one of the main reasons why I am proud of being Italian.

His talent was rapidly recognised by the noble and powerful family of Medici, which attract the artist to his court and start commissioning some of his paintings.

Head in the clouds

Today you’ll learn about René Magritte, the famous Flemish surrealistic painter.  Because there are already numerous biographies out there and Google provides us so kindly with quite a complete overview in his life and oeuvre, I’ll try to approach him from a different angle. Even for the people who aren’t really actively roaming in the art scene, the image of a pipe with the description ‘ceci n’est pas une pipe’ (French for ‘this is not a pipe) must ring a bell. Or perhaps you have seen the applefaced guy with his bowler hat around? These frequently used images belong to the common visual knowledge, thanks to the many channels they’ve been exposed through. It could be you’ve been hiding from […]

Beyond reality

Giorgio de Chirico and his metaphysical painting as a breath of fresh air in a grey set. Beyond the empirical sensorial experience there is something else, a thin layer that is not above reality, neither below, behind or inside, but lives “within” it. These two layers influence themselves, and sometimes our limits break, so that we can taste a slice of this alternative world. Giorgio de Chirico, father of Italian metaphysical painting, didn’t try to express anything really new. Since humanity became capable of being aware of itself, it had to face the supernatural, it had to deal with those elements that fly away from our sight, which can sometimes be essential for our being, if not life changing. Is […]
