The future of the European Union

The elections to the European Parliament are approaching and, once again, millions of Europeans are called to vote. These elections are especially important, as crucial decisions will be taken in the coming years that will affect climate change, the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers and the sovereignty of the peoples of Europe. However, we can say that elections to the European Parliament do not usually attract much interest in the population, at least in Spain, because the power of the European Commission is perceived as something limited and distant that does not have much impact on the member States. Even so, I believe that we are living a decisive period in terms of the continuity of the Union, since […]

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 […]

Meet Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Vaduz is the capital city of Liechtenstein, a small country between Austria and Switzerland and also my home. Liechtenstein is a very small country so its cities are also very small. Liechtenstein has almost 38000 inhabitants and the whole country has only 160km². Although Vaduz is the capital city, it is not the city with the greatest number of inhabitants. Schaan, the city next to Vaduz has more inhabitants. Vaduz has many beautiful spots even though it is very small compared to other cities. Vaduz is the city with the castle in which the Prince lives with his family. Underneath the castle is the “Städtle”, the city center with shops and the government building. It`s where you can also find […]

At the front of the European Animal and environmental rights. Animal and environmental rights are a big topic in the Netherlands. The country is the first country in the world with a political party with among its main goals animal- and environmentally friendly policy. Although the Party for the Animals considers itself to be a testimony party – a party which does not seek to gain political power but focuses on its principles and thereby influencing other parties – the party is gaining more followers every year. Last March during the municipal elections in the capital Amsterdam the party went from 12 seats to 33 seats. Represented in the parliament, senate and European parliament, the party is also becoming more […]
