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.

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 […]

Marcel Hirscher

Austrian’s best alpine ski racer of all time. When I first was confronted with the task of writing an article about a famous Austrian Sportswoman / Sportsman, I did not know whom to pick at first.

Then I remembered Marcel Hirscher – who is not only Austrian but also one of the most successful ski racers of all time. Marcel Hirscher was born on 2 March 1989 in Hallein (Salzburg) as a son of two skiing teachers. While his mother was Dutch, his father came from Austria and together they owned a ski school. Since the age of 15, Marcel Hirscher attended and […]

This month I will do my monthly text on Conor McGregor as he is one of the most famous sportspeople of Ireland right now.
