Cabos submarinos, sismos e tsunamis

Grupo de trabalho entregou ao Governo recomendações para a substituição dos cabos de comunicações submarinos entre Portugal continental, os Açores e a Madeira. O projecto prevê que a infra-estrutura tenha a capacidade de detectar sismos e tsunamis. Mais de 500 anos depois dos Descobrimentos, Portugal volta a ter “um papel pioneiro e de liderança no Atlântico” – q​uem o diz é Yasser Omar, do Instituto Superior Técnico da Universidade de Lisboa e investigador do Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), que faz parte do projecto de investigação para o lançamento de novos cabos de comunicações submarinos entre Portugal continental, Açores e Madeira. Mas há uma novidade: além das telecomunicações, os novos cabos permitirão a investigação científica. É sabido que o anel Continente-Açores-Madeira […]

QUERBEAT – My city’s beat 

November, November I can feel you, I can hear you In my home country, November is quite a special month. Or rather say in my hometown, which is Cologne.  At the beginning of November, a special feeling moves the city. On the 11th of November…why would it be special regarding all those other days?  Suddenly when the clock is turning 11:11 a.m. the city seethes. „Am 11.11. um 11:11h…“ as I would say in German, the „carnival“ season begins. For the older ones that means that the season of carnivalistic sessions begins, but especially for the younger generation, it means celebrating, dressing up, dancing and just enjoying to be alive and having a good time.  And all those activities are […]

20 de Fevereiro, 10 anos depois

Dez anos volvidos desde as grandes cheias que mataram 51 pessoas e desalojaram 600 na Madeira, ainda há cinco corpos por descobrir, cinco famílias por realojar, feridos à espera de cirurgia e máquinas a trabalhar nas ribeiras Todos os madeirenses sabem onde estavam naquele sábado. As cheias de 20 de fevereiro de 2010, que varreram a costa sul, são um marco da ilha, uma cicatriz profunda, deixada pelos 51 mortos, 600 desalojados e mil milhões de euros de prejuízos.

Uma década volvida, cinco famílias continuam à espera de realojamento definitivo, tantas quantas as que nunca puderam enterrar os que lhes desapareceram. Dentro das ribeiras ainda há máquinas […]

Magnús Þór Jónsson

Megas – The father of Icelandic rock ‘n’ roll Magnús Þór Jónsson – better known by his stage name Megas – is one of the best-known and longest-standing Icelandic musicians. Megas was born in Reykjavík on 7. April 1945, which makes him almost the same age as the Icelandic republic (founded in 1944). The mononym Megas was adopted by Magnús while he was a student writing his first short stories for the national newspaper. Elvis Presley was an early influence of Megas’, but his musical style and lyricism also took cues from the folk music of Bob Dylan. Megas’ work was highly original in that he satirized Iceland’s medieval sagas, for centuries considered the crowning jewel of Icelandic literary culture. Icelandic […]

Arrokoth, o objecto mais longínquo

O Arrokoth (como agora se chama) é vermelho, frio e formou-se há 4000 milhões de anos. Afinal, o que é que sabemos sobre o objecto mais longínquo que já visitámos? Três artigos científicos publicados esta semana na revista Science trazem-nos mais novidades. Sabemos agora que não se formou violentamente, que tem 4000 milhões de anos e é totalmente vermelho e frio. A partir de Novembro, o nome do objecto mais longínquo que visitámos até agora – o 2014 MU69 – passou a ser Arrokoth, que significa “céu” na língua indígena norte-americana do povo powhatan. Até então, era conhecido pela alcunha de Ultima Thule, expressão em latim que significa um “lugar além do mundo conhecido”. A mudança aconteceu porque Ultima Thule […]

Bilderbuch

Because Bilderbuch has the perfect amount of craziness and talent they deserve to be my number one of Austria. A lot of Austrian artists tend to be a little bit “crazy” or seem to be “different” to the norm, e.g. “Falco”, “Young Hurn”, “Seiler und Speer”, “Conchita Wurst” and many, many more… In fact, there are probably more “weird” than normal, successful artists in our country. “Bilderbuch” originally was established in 2005, when the four members were approximately 14 and 15 years old –  but more or less became fully internationally known in 2017 with their major hit “Bungalow”. It also was at that time, that one of their other songs, “Maschin”, became really famous as well, although having had […]

Behemoth

Behemoth is a Polish extreme metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content but soon changed to that of occult and Thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences. Despite Behemoth having been labeled as death metal or thrash metal-influenced, Nergal has mentioned that he does not like the band to be […]
