É melhor prevenir que combater

Trabalho defende que os investimentos sejam equilibrados entre o combate e a prevenção. Investigadores de regiões com clima mediterrânico, incluindo de Portugal, concluíram que os investimentos feitos no combate aos incêndios florestais “não resolvem o problema” e vão originar, a curto prazo, fogos “tão intensos” e impossíveis de enfrentar. Estas conclusões constam de uma análise às actuais políticas de gestão de incêndios nas regiões com clima mediterrânico feita por 22 cientistas, quatro dos quais portugueses, e liderada pelo investigador do Instituto Superior de Agronomia (ISA) de Lisboa Francisco Moreira. No trabalhado, publicado esta terça-feira na revista Environmental Research Letters, os investigadores consideram que o destaque dado ao combate dos incêndios florestais nestas regiões está destinado “a falhar os seus objectivos” […]

Ao todo, numa gruta da África do Sul, descobriram-se 55 rizomas carbonizados inteiros e 30 fragmentados. No território da actual África do Sul, há 170 mil anos, os humanos anatomicamente modernos cozinhavam vegetais nas fogueiras. Esta é a conclusão de uma equipa internacional de cientistas anunciada num artigo esta sexta-feira na revista científica Science e surge a partir da descoberta de pequenos rizomas carbonizados – caules subterrâneos mais ou menos paralelos à superfície do solo – na gruta de Border, na África do Sul. Esta é assim a prova directa mais antiga de vegetais cozinhados pelos humanos modernos. “Estava a escavar nas antigas fogueiras da gruta de Border [nos montes Libombos, na fronteira entre a África do Sul e a […]

Muitos artigos mas poucas patentes

A “maior fragilidade” da investigação em saúde em Portugal é a falta de transferência do conhecimento para empresas e hospitais, alertou esta segunda-feira Manuel Sobrinho Simões, que há 30 anos fundou o Instituto de Patologia e Imunologia Molecular da Universidade do Porto. “Continuamos a ser excessivamente investigadores. A maior fragilidade da investigação em saúde é a translação do conhecimento. Falta a dinâmica das empresas e dos hospitais na procura pelos institutos”, salientou. Sobrinho Simões, que falava à agência Lusa a propósito do 30.º aniversário do Instituto de Patologia e Imunologia Molecular da Universidade do Porto (Ipatimup), marcado durante este ano por várias iniciativas, admitiu que a “falta de translação” existente na área de investigação em saúde é “um defeito do […]

Polish sportswoman

One of the most famous sportswomen in Poland is Anna Lewandowska. People have been practicing sports since forever. Well, not all people as women were not allowed to watch or participate in the Olympic Games in ancient Greece. The first modern Games did not allow women to compete either. In 1928, women were prohibited from running more than 200 meters, extensive running supposedly caused premature aging. Fortunately, now in 2016 women have been competing in nearly all sport disciplines for a very long time now, despite all the obstacles they have had to face. One of the most famous sportswomen in Poland is Anna Lewandowska. She is not only famous for being the wife of a famous Polish footballer Robert […]

Recuperação da camada de ozono

Se continuar a ser lançado CFC 11 para a atmosfera de forma contínua, isso pode contribuir para o atraso da recuperação da camada de ozono durante mais de uma década. Em 2018, verificou-se que a taxa de declínio do clorofluorocarboneto (CFC) 11 tinha abrandado 50% desde 2012, o que significava que esta substância proibida em todo o mundo estava a ser lançada na atmosfera. Já este ano, confirmou-se que essas emissões vinham sobretudo de duas províncias chinesas: Shandong e Hebei. Agora, uma equipa de cientistas do Reino Unido e dos Estados Unidos simulou o que acontecerá se o CFC 11 continuar a ser lançado. Num artigo científico publicado na revista científica Nature Communications, refere-se que a recuperação da camada de […]

Maruja Mallo

Maruja Mallo was first and foremost free. When you think about a famous painter from Spain all the names that come out are masculine. The reason why is not because there are not female Spanish painters, it is because history is not giving them the recognition that they deserve. I am really far from being an art expert, but I know how women have to face challenges due to gender biases, from finding difficulty in training to selling their work and gaining recognition. Maruja Mallo is one of the women that fight for her own place in the world of art of the twentieth century to become one of the most representative figures of the Generation of 27 and one […]
