Violência doméstica como tortura?

A ministra da Justiça admitiu hoje analisar o alargamento do conceito jurídico de tortura aos crimes relacionados com violência doméstica. Francisca Van Dunem disse, na inauguração de um novo espaço de apoio às vítimas de violência na comarca de Lisboa Oeste, em Sintra, que o alargamento do conceito da tortura a situações relacionadas com a violência doméstica “é uma questão a ser analisada”, no âmbito de um conjunto de obrigações que resultam “de convenções e tratados internacionais de que Portugal faz parte”. “Há sempre questões que eventualmente ficam ao lado ou são questões que ficam marginalizadas”, reconheceu a governante, acrescentando que irá analisar a questão e se verá a “sequência é que é possível dar” em termos da transposição para […]

Christmas, Easter and Carnival

Every family has their own Christmas traditions Christmas In my family, Christmas always begins with the decorating of the Christmas tree. Later, we usually cook some sweet food. So, we made some chocolate truffles for us and the family, and we also made “fruits déguisés” some dry fruits filled with almond paste. For the Christmas dinner with my family, we eat smoked salmon and foie gras which is cooked duck liver. We also eat turkey filled with chestnuts. And for dessert, we eat la buche, a cake in the shape of a wood log with a glass of champagne. We open the presents usually after dinner on the 24th of December. Every family has their own Christmas traditions but regarding […]

Traditions in my country

My favorite tradition of all in the U.K is the Notting Hill Carnival. Traditions in the UK vary depending on which part of the country you are from. Traditional religious festivities such as Christmas and Easter have less religious connotations attached to them due to an ever-increasing secular society. Corporate interest and late-stage capitalism have also averted the traditions of these celebrations, towards culture and industry of shopping and consuming. The traditions that occur in my family household, are quite simple nowadays. If you are from a religious family, then you might attend midnight mass on the 24th of December, however, we just drink some prosecco and watch a Christmas film or an episode of Only Fools and Horses, a British […]

Têm aulas sobre emoções

Identificar as emoções e aprender a geri-las desde pequenos é também uma forma de prevenir problemas na infância e adolescência, diz directora de escola de Leiria. Num congresso no ISCTE vai-se debater a empatia. Valentim, 7 anos, diz que está ali “para aprender a ficar mais alegre”. A alegria foi um dos sentimentos que estavam a trabalhar na aula a partir de um pequeno vídeo de animação. Da alegria foram até ao orgulho. “Sinto orgulho quando sinto que vou conseguir”, define Valentim, que dirá depois ao PÚBLICO que a “atitude” de que “gosta mais” é a paciência. “Às vezes fico impaciente porque o meu mano mais novo está sempre a interromper-me e não quero ficar assim.” Ao fim de quase […]

Christmas and Easter in Poland

12 dishes on Christmas Eve and buckets of water on Easter Monday, those are just an example of how we celebrate this special time in Poland. Christmas Christmas in Poland is celebrated for 3 days starting from Christmas Eve. Dinner starts with the first star in the sky, which refers to the Star of Bethlehem which the three kings saw on the way to the Infant Jesus. When the whole family is ready, we start by sharing wafer and make wishes, then we can start eating. Traditional dinner on this day consists of 12 meatless dishes and trying each of them should guarantee happiness during the next twelve months. Typical dishes, for example, are beetroot soup with small dumplings stuffed […]

Easter in Poland

This celebration involves many unique and joyful rituals, including plenty of homemade delicacies. The first sign of approaching Easter is a large number of branches and dried flowers being brought to the church. One week before Easter, Palm Sunday takes place (according to Catholic tradition, the day marks Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem). Since palm trees are rare in Poland, churchgoers often bring ‘palms’ made of colorful woven dried branches. On the Saturday before Easter Sunday, Poles paint hard-boiled eggs (called pisanki). Some use store-bought kits which make the coloring and decorating easier, others continue to make dyes in the traditional way – with boiled onion skins. Another Saturday activity is the preparation of Easter baskets: lined with a white lace […]

Poland during celebrations

How to Polish people celebrate Christmas, Carnival, and Easter There are many traditions of Christmas and Easter in Poland but just a few around Carnival. The greatest number of Christmas traditions concern Christmas Eve. According to tradition, on the table should be twelve dishes, where the only kind of meat is fish. Everyone around the table should try all of the dishes. The most typical dish is carp which can be served in various versions, usually fried.

Typically one place setting should be left free for an unexpected guest which symbolizes every hungry or alone person who spends Christmas without family […]

Old ones & new ones

Upon the arrival of new volunteers, I realized that I am the “old” one now. When I got here, to Funchal, four months ago, I could count on the help and experience of volunteers that got here several months before me. I perceived them as my “mentors” when it comes to practical stuff regarding living in the residence and getting around the city. They showed me the fastest route to work, where to buy vegetables and of course what does the word “poncha” mean. And their help was even more appreciated when it comes to free-time activities. Like finding great camping spots, recommending hiking trails and levadas, bars, museums and other attractions. Of course I’ve learned and discovered a lot […]

Non-formal education in Madeira

This month, I and two of my colleagues were in Guimarães, learning and enjoying. In my case I learned another point of view of my stay here in Madeira and this point of view is related to how I’m learning as I’m enjoying Madeira. -One example of this is my adaptability that it has improved in both the biggest to the smallest things, adapting to a new country, new city, new food and new culture, adapting to the customs and culture of each one who is around me all the time. -Another quite good example of this is something that I called “exchange of patience”. It’s because sometimes you have to be patient and sometimes they have to be patient […]

Communication in a team work

During my EVS arrival training I met great people and I learnt more about myself and my needs. I talked a lot about the idea of volunteering, stereotypes and interpersonal communication. These last are for me the most interesting. Here are the things I have learnt: 1) Be open, patient and break the barrier! Even if your English (or other no native language) is bad, never stop to communicate with people. If that can help you, use new technologies (google translation), gestures or just try to draw. You´ll be surprised how easy it is to meet someone new who became your friend. “Between what I think, what I want to say, what I believe I say, what I say, what […]

Living outside

So the main point of all this experience is growing as a person, as individual human being, make from yourself better at solving difficult situations. Starting from the beginning, living outside of your parents home isn’t as easy as it looks. First of all you have to adapt to new situations that were completely covered in the easy parental environment. Take care of a lot of different things that you never expect. In that moment you realize how it’s going to be the rest of your life, in the way that no longer will be the easiness of home. Now you have to make the home by your own, trying to keep the “traditions” that in your original home you […]

Living in the Residence

My first thought was that it was in an amazing location, within spitting distance of the ocean and with many restaurants and beautiful buildings surrounding it. There would be no difficulty in finding somewhere to spend my evenings. The term ‘university residence’ conjures up many different pictures to different people. Having been exceptionally lucky during my own time at university in regards to accommodation and having heard other people’s horror stories about their own times it was with some trepidation that I came to live at the university residence here in Madeira. I discovered that I would be sharing a room, something I hadn’t done since I was a child. Fortunately for me these girls were absolutely lovely and very […]

Madeiran Heritage

This is why heritage can be shared and spread by anybody. We are a group of international volunteers, coming from different countries to promote, preserve and present the material and immaterial heritage of Madeira. The sweatshirts we wear whilst doing this read „Madeiran Heritage – Sharing our legacy“, because that is what we are doing, sharing the legacy of Madeira. The heritage and culture of the island. But it’s not our legacy, it’s someone else’s legacy. When I told my friends that I would leave Germany to talk about the history, buildings and personalities that shaped an Island on which I had never set foot beforehand, they were a little bit confused and wondering. But, how will you guide people through […]
