Reitores querem discutir o E.S.

“Vamos ter um ano de eleições, os partidos estão a fazer programas eleitorais, vão fazer programas de Governo e o nosso objectivo é fornecer elementos de conhecimento do ensino superior para esse debate”, disse Maria de Lurdes Rodrigues, reitora do ISCTE.

Die Ärzte

Today’s blog post is about a musician from my home country. Therefore, I decided to write about the popular band “Die Ärzte”. Since my early childhood, I have been a huge fan of this band. Perhaps this sounds a bit strange due to the fact that the band is considered to be a punk rock band but I still enjoy listening to their songs and watching their videos. Let me give you some information about this band. The band was founded in 1982 in Berlin by Bela B and Farin Urlaub, who are two of the three band members. Farin Urlaub, the guitar player, Bela B the drummer and Rodrigo Gonzales were part of this band until their breakup in […]

Dezembro é mês de chuva de estrelas

Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro e, depois, entre os dias 17 e 26. Para apreciar estas chuvas de estrelas não é necessário nenhum equipamento específico, basta olhar para o céu. Durante esta semana, vai poder assistir a uma chuva de estrelas — ou melhor, de meteoros das Gemínidas. Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro, apesar de já ter começado no dia 4 deste mês, mas com menos intensidade. “Popularmente, é conhecida por chuva de estrelas, mas o que de facto estamos a ver é um enxame de meteoros, pequenas partículas de poeira ou restos de rochas que entram na nossa atmosfera e começam a arder.

Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus

An example of how Max Raabe’s music transcends time and space. Max Raabe enriches the musical landscape both nationally and internationally by reviving chansons from the 1920s and 1930s, re-interpreting contemporary songs, and composing film scores. In his early childhood, Raabe became passionate about music and joined a children’s choir. To further develop his talents, he attended singing classes and ultimately decided to study music at the Berlin University of the Arts. In Berlin, he soon found like-minded people and established the Palace Orchestra in 1985. The orchestra specialized in performing music from the 1920s and 1930s. A decade later, the orchestra released a series of songs, one of which appeared in a German film production. Ever since, the orchestra […]

Maior extinção da história da Terra

O estudo divulgado pela revista Science revela que a extinção em massa que ocorreu há 252 milhões de anos foi causada pelo aquecimento global. 96% das espécies marinhas foram exterminadas. A maior extinção da história na Terra, que marcou o fim do período permiano, há cerca de 252 milhões de anos, foi causada por alterações climáticas, indica uma investigação divulgada na edição desta sexta-feira da revista Science. A extinção no final do permiano, no fim da era paleozóica e muito antes dos dinossauros, aconteceu quando o planeta estava repleto de plantas e animais, que foram praticamente extintos. Aquecimento global no Pleistoceno elevou o nível do mar até 13 metros Fósseis em rochas no leito dos mares mostram um ecossistema marinho […]

Mikel Laboa

One of the Basque Country’s most important singer-songwriters Considered the father of Basque music, his music has had an influence on younger generations. His album Bat-Hiru (“One-Three”) was chosen in a reader’s poll by the local newspaper as the greatest Basque album in history. Nearly all of his songs are sung in Basque. Mikel Laboa was born 15 June 1934 in Pasaia, Gipuzkoa. During his student years he became interested in music, influenced by artists such as Atahualpa Yupanqui and Violeta Parra. Following in their footsteps, Laboa would also identify himself as a “political artist”. During the 1960s, along with other Basque artists, he founded the cultural group Ez Dok Amairu (“There is no 13”), which in many ways wanted […]

A composer from Liechtenstein

A man who showed exceptional musical talent at an early age. No one knows Liechtenstein and if you ask a person who grew up here about famous people from this country, finding an answer will be very difficult. It is not easy to think of a musician from Liechtenstein. Even the results shown on Google are frustrating. Not only are there just a few results but there was only one name I have heard before: Josef Rheinberger. Now, we have learned that famous people from Liechtenstein are as hard to find as cheese from Madeira, we can look at why I actually know this person. He was born in Liechtenstein, to be exact in Vaduz on the 17th of March […]

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.
