Germany and Madeira

Differences and similarities between Germany and Madeira. My name is Anne, I am part of the voluntary project in Madeira. Therefore, I want to share my thoughts on the comparison between Germany and Madeira. Although, Madeira is on the border of Europe, close to Africa there are lots of similarities between Germany and Madeira. You can find some typical German food in the supermarket like Haribo or Nürnberger Würstchen. Most of the people are very nice, helpful and dressed like people in Germany. And last but not least we share the same currency, the Euro. However, there are also some differences. Due to the fact that the weather is much better than in Germany, the people are more tanned and […]

Centro espacial dos Açores

Divulgados os resultados da primeira fase da criação de uma base para lançar pequenos foguetões da ilha de Santa Maria. Seguir-se-á, no início do próximo ano, o lançamento de um concurso internacional. A meta é ter foguetões a descolar com satélites daqui a três anos. As empresas aeroespaciais de todo o mundo tinham sido convidadas no final de Setembro para manifestarem o seu interesse, até 31 de Outubro, na criação de um centro espacial nos Açores. Agora o ministro da Ciência, Manuel Heitor, anunciou os resultados dessa auscultação: 14 consórcios internacionais, que incluem 12 empresas portuguesas, manifestaram interesse em conceber, instalar e operar um centro espacial nos Açores, na ilha de Santa Maria.

Two very different cities

Funchal and Vaduz: so different that it is very hard to find similarities. My home city is Vaduz. It is the capital city of Liechtenstein. Funchal is the capital city of the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Madeira seems to be pretty big if you compare Liechtenstein to the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Even Funchal is a lot bigger than my home city Vaduz. Vaduz has only 17,3 km² and Funchal has 76,25 km². One can also spot the difference by the number of inhabitants. Funchal has twenty times the amount of the inhabitants of Vaduz. Funchal and my home city seem to be really distant and they are. It is really hard to find a lot of similarities and it […]

O que nos faz gostar de ter medo?

O medo, sentido de forma segura, ajuda a “desligar o cérebro” durante as situações assustadoras, dando um sentimento de conquista, de se ter ultrapassado um obstáculo. Mas tudo tem de ser feito de forma voluntária. Estar numa situação de medo e perigo de forma voluntária pode parecer contra-natura, mas é isso que acontece quando alguém decide ver um filme de terror ou entrar numa casa assombrada – mesmo que o perigo não seja real. Mas há alguma vantagem em sentir medo, calafrios, sustos e arrepios? “Ironicamente, o medo reduz o stress e a ansiedade”, explica ao PÚBLICO a investigadora norte-americana Margee Kerr, conhecida como a “socióloga do medo”, que publicou no início de Outubro um estudo no site da American Psychological Association sobre o […]

An ocean of differences?

Funchal and Warsaw – the list of similarities between both places. Funchal and my home city are so distant, however, what are their similarities? In this united Europe, what do our cities share in this Union of, so far, 28 countries? What comes to my mind are mostly differences. In terms of the number of citizens, area, architecture and landscape that surrounds both cities. But where I see the biggest difference is climate. In Warsaw and generally Poland, weather is quite unpredictable. During summer days there might be an average of thirty-five degrees plus. On the other hand, sometimes in winter, the thermometer can show minus twenty-five degrees Celsius. While Madeiran temperatures are more stable throughout the year. Secondly, I […]

Alojamento para alunos deslocados

O Governo actualizou o levantamento divulgado em Maio e concluiu que as 15.370 camas para estudantes chegam para apenas 13,5% dos deslocados. No ISCTE, onde só há lugar para 3,4% dos alunos que estão a estudar fora da área de residência, prevêem-se 54 novas camas “muito em breve”. O ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa está entre as instituições de ensino superior no país que mais falham na oferta de camas para os estudantes deslocados: aqui, só há lugar para apenas 3,4% dos alunos que se encontram foram da sua área de residência. Pior ainda está o Instituto Politécnico do Cávado e do Ave, com um rácio de camas/deslocados de apenas 2,6%. Estas conclusões estão contidas no diagnóstico que o […]

So far and so close

When I arrived in Funchal, It felt like home. I arrived in Funchal short time ago, so it’s a bit difficult for me to talk about similarities when I hardly know the idiosyncrasies of Madeiran people. However, I must say that I immediately felt at home. I come from San Sebastian, a city in the Basque Country, in the north of Spain, but I am a French resident since 2012. When I arrived in Funchal, I had the feeling of being in a known place, even though I had never been here. The people are friendly and warm and they immediately treat you as if they knew you. I think one of the biggest similarities with my hometown, is that […]

Joseph Stalin’s “gift” to Poles

It has 44 floors, 3,288 rooms and the mysterious underground The Palace of Culture and Science is located in the center city centre of Warsaw and it is the main landmark. The building was erected as a ‘gift of the Soviet people for the Polish nation’. It is said that originator of the project was Joseph Stalin. Various concepts were considered, but it was known that for propaganda reasons it must be the central point of the city. Setting the height of the building, of course took place with the participation of architects from the Soviet Union. They stood on the other side of the Vistula river, and a plane with a balloon was flying over the planned site, rising […]

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. It was built in the 12th century by the counts of Werdenberg-Sargans, who were also the former owners of the castle. In the Swabian war of 1499, the castle was burned by the Swiss Confederacy. The castle was expanded by Count Caspar of Hohenems. The Princely Family of Liechtenstein acquired Vaduz Castle in 1712 when it purchased the Countship of Vaduz. At this time, Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, combined […]
