The European Union: what future?

The coming months will be very important for the future of the European Union. The next elections to the European Parliament are scheduled for this year. Five years after the last elections, citizens of the European Union can vote for Members of the European Parliament (MEP). One of the major changes this year will be a reduced number of MEPs. After the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, 705 MEPs will be elected. Simultaneously Poland will receive one additional mandate and thus will elect 52 MEPs. One of the most important challenges is the exit of the European Union by the United Kingdom and lack of respect for the rule of law in some countries. The European Parliament is working […]

Os politécnicos são para os pobres?

O sistema de ensino superior em Portugal continua profundamente elitista. Negá-lo é um mero exercício de hipocrisia. O título deste artigo resulta de um outro publicado neste jornal no passado dia 26 de junho sobre as desigualdades no acesso ao ensino superior. O artigo, baseado num estudo dirigido pelo Prof. Alberto Amaral, concluía, entre outras coisas, que os alunos mais pobres se inscrevem, sobretudo, nos politécnicos. Para quem conhece minimamente o ensino superior português esta conclusão não surpreende. Ao contrário do que é frequentemente apregoado e do que pretendia Veiga Simão há quase 50 anos, quando lançou a Reforma do Sistema Educativo, o sistema de ensino superior em Portugal continua profundamente elitista. Negá-lo é um mero exercício de hipocrisia. Para […]

The European Union and Austria

On the 26th of may the people of my country, Austria, will be going to the polls to elect the members of the next European Parliament. With us, many other people all over Europe will vote and in this way and we will change the future of the European Union. At the moment, we as Europeans are facing many challenges and difficulties. The Brexit (or whatever it’s gonna be?), the immigration issue and climate change problems are just the tip of the iceberg. All of these things could be solved, if the European Union would work together properly – but currently that’s not the case. Right wing and anti-European parties are taking the lead in more and more countries and […]

The European Elections

The European elections never really mobilised people. Since 1979, the rate of abstention is in freefall in France. However, at this time of political and environmental crisis, the next ones in May could represent high stakes for the future of everyone. Usually used by the French politicians as a sort of instrumentalization of the national politics, this year those elections should carry a more important meaning. The opposition of Macron’s politics would like to sell those elections as a referendum against the actual government in power in France. Beyond this national dissension, appears an actual dichotomy through the all European Union between those who still believe in a Union in agreement with the historical project started in 1945 and those […]

Together we can do better!

In May, the call for European elections is opening and all European citizens are needed to express their desire to get involved in politics. These are not simple elections, this is an international event in which we are involved as protagonists because the future of the European Union depends on us. The EU is experiencing a moment of crisis due to the national political transformations that are happening, the international emergency related to the migratory fluxes that are occurring and the lack of common intents between the countries that constitute the monetary and economic Union. The number of populist parties that are rising in power in national contexts is increasing as a result of the boom in nationalism, economic autarky […]

Expressões que deviam ser proibidas

Copo com água? Literalmente? Norte-americano? Perca? Não. Não. Não. Por favor, não Toda a gente tem duas ou três palavras que não aprecia por aí além, porque as acha deselegantes, de mau tom e pior som. Eu tenho uma longa lista. Só de repente, lembro-me de requeiro, caberão, compito, compila e cômputo, cujo, blinda, brioche e broche, adição, vi-vos e fá-lo, eslovaca, xaputa e disputa, pariu e podido. Umas percebo porquê, outras nem por isso. Mas longe de mim querer bani-las. De que outra forma poderia dizer “Requeiro uma xaputa e um brioche”?, ou “Eu compito em disputa pelo primeiro lugar, mas caberão três pessoas no pódio”, ou “Fá-lo tu, que eu não tenho podido”?

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 […]
