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 […]

Prática desportiva dos estudantes

Deixaste de praticar desporto depois de entrares na Universidade!?  A actividade física e os desporto constituem-se como um pilar essencial para a nossa saúde e bem-estar.

Fogos urbanos são alvo de estudo

O objectivo do projecto de investigação é tornar mais eficaz a gestão dos recursos da administração pública. Uma gestão mais eficaz de bombeiros e equipamentos ou a definição do melhor local para instalar um quartel de bombeiros serão possíveis com uma ferramenta para analisar incêndios urbanos que vai ser criada pela Universidade Nova de Lisboa. O projecto de investigação foi apresentado esta quinta-feira pela Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova. Aplicando inteligência artificial e metodologias da ciência de dados o projecto chamado AI-4-MUFF vai analisar os fogos urbanos para entender o fenómeno. O objectivo é desenvolver uma investigação sobre esta área e criar uma nova ferramenta que permita gestão mais eficaz dos recursos da administração pública, diz a […]

Asteróide, bactérias, vida na Terra

Microbactérias que sobreviveram ao asteroide que matou os dinossauros podem ser a chave para a vida na Terra O asteroide Chicxulub caiu ao largo do Golfo do México há 66 milhões de anos e destruiu cerca de 76% de todas as espécies do planeta. À catástrofe sobreviveram as microbactérias que terão sido responsáveis por dar continuidade ao processo de vida na Terra, concluiu um novo estudo Estima-se que o Chicxulub tenha libertado uma energia equivalente à de 10 mil milhões de bombas atómicas como a que caiu em Hiroshima. Para a atmosfera foram lançados cerca de 425 mil milhões de toneladas de CO2 e 325 mil milhões de sulfuretos que terão formado uma neblina tão densa que deixou a Terra […]

Afinal…. Je suis neandertal

Pela primeira vez, conseguiu-se observar de forma consistente ADN neandertal em populações africanas. Quem somos? E que passado carregamos? Estas questões estão constantemente a ser feitas quando se estuda o ADN humano. Desta vez, ao usarem um novo método computacional para detectar ancestralidade neandertal no genoma de humanos modernos (a nossa espécie), uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos observou pela primeira vez, de forma robusta, que os africanos têm ancestralidade neandertal no seu ADN. Também se verificou que os europeus e os asiáticos têm níveis de ancestralidade neandertal mais parecidos entre si do que aquilo que se julgava. Antes de mais, façamos as apresentações. Os neandertais são um grupo de humanos que surgiu há cerca de 400 mil anos […]

Deixar de fumar reverte mutações

Estudo publicado na revista Nature revela que há um conjunto de células dos brônquios que recupera até níveis normais de mutações quando uma pessoa deixa de fumar. Parece que nem tudo está perdido ou danificado para sempre para um viciado em tabaco. Um estudo publicado na última edição da revista Nature mostra que abandonar o absurdo risco de fumar pode ser o suficiente para reverter danos nas células no pulmão. Aparentemente, há um conjunto de células que pode recuperar até aos níveis normais de mutações quando (e se) uma pessoa deixa de fumar. A conclusão é baseada num estudo que envolveu a análise de biópsias do tecido de 16 pessoas e um total de 632 perfis genéticos de células do […]

Wavvyboi: The future of German RnB 

Wavvyboi never writes happy songs. The native of Liechtenstein exposes his feelings with music, shrouded in jazz chords and oppressive bass. The Liechtensteiner’s career started early.  At the age of twelve, he started taking piano lessons with Stefan Frommelt.  Frommelt quickly became his mentor and taught him to produce his own music. First of all, he played in some alternative bands and started releasing covers on SoundCloud.  For example, he adapted the song “3. Stock “by AnnenMayKantereit and made it his very own, a quiet piano version. Shortly afterward, Wavvyboi released his first own tracks.  For “12 am in the city”, he picked a YouTube Bryson Tiller Type beat by David Wud and transformed his feelings into melodies on the […]
