Iceland’s strongman

The strongman, Jón Páll Sigmarsson, changed Iceland’s athletic standing on the world stage forever. The 1980s were a defining time for Icelandic sport. It was during this decade that the Icelander Jón Páll Sigmarsson secured his international reputation as a legendary strongman, weightlifter, and bodybuilder. Thanks to the combination of his superhuman athletic abilities and his charismatic on-screen personality, Jón Páll won the hearts of not only Icelanders but people around the world, who tuned in to see him win the World’s Strongest Man four times (in 1984, 1986, 1988 and 1990) and quip his catchy slogans such as: “Þetta er ekkert mál fyrir Jón Pál! [This is no haul for John Paul!]”, delivered just before a deadlift. Jón Páll […]

Áreas marinhas protegidas… móveis

Argumentação surge em artigo publicado na revista Science. Cientistas querem que o conceito de áreas marinhas protegidas móveis seja consagrado na Convenção das Nações Unidas sobre a Lei do Mar (UNCLOS), como nova ferramenta de protecção ambiental face às alterações climáticas. Num artigo que será publicado esta sexta-feira na revista científica Science, investigadores consideram que o processo de actualização da UNCLOS que está em curso, o primeiro desde a assinatura da convenção em 1982, é uma “oportunidade única” para introduzir a ideia de zonas protegidas que acompanhem as espécies à medida que se deslocam. “Como é óbvio os animais movimentam-se, muitos deles circulam por vastas áreas de oceano. À medida que as alterações climáticas se instalam e alteram ecossistemas, se […]

Educação ambiental nas escolas

Conselho Nacional de Educação propõe mudanças na abordagem que é feita nas escolas à educação ambiental. Partindo do pressuposto de que a despolitização da discussão dos problemas ambientais não é só um exercício artificial, como também uma forma de desvalorizar esta problemática enquanto “questão cívica”, o Conselho Nacional de Educação (CNE) exorta a que se admita “a inevitabilidade de uma dimensão política da educação ambiental” que é proposta nas escolas. Numa recomendação que foi agora divulgada, aquele órgão de consulta do Parlamento e do Governo frisa que na Estratégia Nacional para a Educação Ambiental 2020, lançada pelo Governo em 2017, “a expressão ‘política’ parece apenas referir-se aos decisores e às medidas do lado do Estado, não sugerindo explicitamente a existência […]

Divisão celular e o cancro

Trabalho de investigação durou seis anos. Acaba de ser identificado um novo mecanismo utilizado pelas células que, ao garantir a correcta distribuição dos cromossomas durante a divisão celular, evita o desenvolvimento de anomalias associadas ao cancro. A descoberta é de investigadores do Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde (i3S), no Porto. Em entrevista à agência Lusa, o investigador Carlos Conde, explicou que o estudo, publicado na revista científica Journal of Cell Biology, destinava-se a “perceber como é que as células, quando se dividem, transmitem correctamente o material genético”. “Queríamos identificar os mecanismos moleculares que garantem que, quando as células se dividem, a separação do material genético ocorre de forma correcta”, disse o investigador do grupo Divisão Celular e Estabilidade […]

The Cranberries

I have decided to write about the famous Irish rock group, ‘The Cranberries’, for my text this month. It all started back in the mid-1980s when Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler decided to form a band in their garage, inspired by bands such as The Smiths and The Cure. They struggled to find a lead singer until they came across Dolores O’Riordan who they described as ‘quiet as a mouse’ but when she started singing they were ‘blown away’. There was no question that they had found their fourth band member. As songwriters, Noel and Dolores gelled immediately however they never were in the same room while they both wrote songs. For the first two years, they wrote […]
