Vida sob camadas de gelo?

Uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos levou a cabo uma investigação no lago Mercer, um dos mais profundos lagos escondidos por baixo do gelo que cobre a Antárctida, e encontraram vestígios de crustáceos e de um tardígrado. Sob as camadas de gelo que cobrem a Antárctida há muitos segredos por descobrir. Uma expedição recente ao continente gelado, liderada por uma equipa dos Estados Unidos com cerca de 50 membros, revelou algo surpreendente: sinais de vida nas águas do lago Mercer, por baixo de uma camada de gelo com 1068 metros de espessura, a cerca de 600 quilómetros do Pólo Sul. Dos 379 lagos que existem por baixo da superfície gelada na Antárctida (muitos deles ligados entre si), o Mercer […]

Novo método pode ajudar diabéticos

O sistema vascular criado numa placa de Petri foi transplantado para ratinhos e funcionou. Este novo método pode ajudar a evitar alterações nos vasos sanguíneos de diabéticos e perceber melhor as causas das doenças vasculares. Um grupo de cientistas criou um sistema de vasos sanguíneos em laboratório a partir de células estaminais humanas induzidas (células que foram reprogramadas a partir de células adultas e podem diferenciar-se noutras, conseguindo originar qualquer tipo de tecido do organismo). Depois, o sistema foi transplantado com sucesso para ratinhos: os “organóides” criados artificialmente formaram uma “estrutura vascular estável” nos ratinhos, incluindo artérias, arteríolas e vénulas (pequenas veias). O estudo que relata estas conclusões foi publicado esta quinta-feira na revista científica Nature. Uma das boas notícias […]

The artist with a funny mustache

A young man who became very famous in a very short time. Young man, born in the city just next to mine, who became very famous in a very short time and became one of my favorites musicians.

This summer my friends invited me to join them for a music festival, where I have discovered there is a lot of great artists who actually sing in polish. One of them was Dawid Podsiadlo, a 25 years old singer with a great voice and unique style. Dawid Podsiadlo started his career as a musician after winning “X Factor” show in 2012 and […]

Laboratórios, materiais e leis

Universidades e centros de investigação têm dúvidas sobre a aplicação de decreto-lei publicado no Verão. Governo diz que o que falta é uma desburocratização das instituições. Imagine-se a seguinte situação: uma revista de grande reputação publica um artigo sobre um reagente químico que depressa se torna essencial na investigação científica. Esse produto é apenas comercializado por um único fornecedor estrangeiro, que teria que estar inscrito no Portal da Contratação Pública para poder vender o produto aos centros de investigação portugueses. Como essa empresa não o faz, a instituição portuguesa não pode, por isso, fazer a compra. O cenário não é apenas hipotético: tem-se colocado com frequência. O Governo criou, no Verão, um novo regime para simplificar os processos de compra […]

His song “Strange is This World” is considered to be the […]

A Musician from my Country?

I picked a musician from Austria There are no famous musicians from Liechtenstein. As you may know, Liechtenstein is a very small country. Therefore it is very hard to find a famous musician from there, because, we don’t have any successful musicians. We do have small bands and other music groups, but none of them are worth writing about, so I picked a musician from Austria to write about instead. So the musician I’m writing about instead is called “Yung Hurn”. He’s an Austrian Rapper from the capital Vienna. His original name is Julian Sellmeister and he was born in 1995. He dropped out of high school and started rapping. His mixtape “22” was an instant hit, especially his hit […]

Embracing a city

When I think about Amsterdam, I think about the sensory experiences of the city. The sound of tourists’ suitcases rolling over cobblestones, the penetrating smell when you pass a coffee shop in one of the alleyways or the rain on your skin when you’re cycling to the other side of town. I think about crowded cafes when our football team plays. How whole streets turn orange, our national color, and the excitement on people’s faces. How people cheer when our team scores and how the cafes turn to silent mumbling and cursing when the other team scores. How you can’t get out of these places without having had a beer shower or being hugged by random strangers when the orange […]

A small Dutch village

Smell the freshly cut grass, look at the swallows and make a trip on the tractor. Kolderveen is an extremely small village where you can find a lot of cows, horses, tourists and many seniors on electric bicycles. Literally, Kolderveen consists of only one street which is almost 2,5 km long. I think with around 200 inhabitants there live many more cows and horses then people. The Netherlands has twelve provinces, Kolderveen belongs to the province Drenthe which lies in the north of the Netherlands. Three of the provinces , included Drenthe, in the north of the Netherlands are well known because of the meadows, farms and sober people compared with the environment of the four biggest cities called the […]

More cows than people

A hidden region between some alpine mountains. On first sight, the Bregenzerwald may seem a bit boring, but well, it isn’t. We got so much more to offer than just cows and cheese, although these are deeply connected to our cultural life. This article should be about my ‘hometown’ and yes, Alberschwende is my ‘hometown’, but it’s actually a small village, inside the Bregenzerwald region, with about 3.300 people living there. Even though I’m not really the biggest fan of Alberschwende there are a few things worth mentioning. The most popular thing of ours may be the ‘KulturKäsKlatsch'”, which could be translated into ‘CultureCheeseClub’. The ‘KäsKlatsch’ takes place every Thursday next to our church. By the way, right behind the […]

My hometown, Vaduz

The capital city of a small country in the heart of Europe. My hometown is called Vaduz and it’s the capital city of Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein has about 38.000 inhabitants and in Vaduz live about 5.500 people. It’s also the town where the royal family of Liechtenstein lives. The royal family lives in the castle, which is located in the city center of Vaduz, although it’s located a little higher than the rest of the houses. We do also have 3 museums in Vaduz: the historical museum, the Hilti art foundation, and the art museum. The art museum and the Hilti art foundation contain a lot of artworks which belong to the royal family of Liechtenstein. There’s also a city train […]

Barcelona, my home city

Barcelona, attractive for everyone I am a city girl. I have lived all my life in the heart of Barcelona, watching the Sagrada Familia from my window and born in one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in the city, Sant Pau hospital. In Barcelona you can find art and history along with modernity and diversification. In the city you can stroll through modern neighborhoods, such as Poble Nou, full of new construction. On the top of that, the historic centre of Barcelona is a beautiful medieval area: the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic). Full of streets with interesting details, squares with history and famous churches. The geographical area, the food and the climate of Barcelona are some of the […]
