The short king of Poland

A small man who was a great king. In XIV century Poland had a king of Piast dynasty, who was famous because of his height.

Independence of Finland

Independence Day was first celebrated in 1917. During the interregnum from the fall of Nicholas II to the end of the Finnish Civil War in 1918, sovereignty in Finland was exercised by the Finnish Parliament. And until the October Revolution and the declaration of independence by the Russian interim government which happened after the civil war, regents were appointed by the parliament and a new king was to be elected. The nation of Finland has never been an independent sovereign monarchy. No attempt to establish a fully-fledged Finnish monarchy has been successful. When it finally became established as a modern independent nation state it was, despite a very brief flirtation with a monarchy, in the form of a republic. And […]

Patentes a custo zero

Empresas apenas pagarão royalties a partir de meio milhão de euros de facturação anual. Presidente da instituição defende que o actual modelo desperdiça recursos públicos. Entre patentes, modelos e desenhos com propriedade industrial, o Instituto Politécnico de Leiria (IPL) tem 228 registos activos (11 deles internacionais) de invenções suas protegidas. Destes, apenas dois estão a ser explorados por empresas. Para mudar esse panorama, o presidente da instituição, Rui Pedrosa, quer mudar as regras de licenciamento e disponibilizá-lo a custo zero. “Salvo raríssimas excepções, a propriedade industrial serve para enriquecer o currículo da instituição e dos investigadores, mas não está ao serviço do benefício económico”, considera o presidente do IPL. E isto acontece, diz, porque as instituições de ensino superior “não estão preparadas para […]

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 […]
