Golden Earring

The oldest still existing rock band from The Hague since 1961. In 1961, when the 13-year old George Kooymans (guitar), his 15-year old neighbor friend Rinus Gerritsen (bass guitar) and another 15-year old neighbor friend Fred van Hilst (drums) decided to begin a band, they named it The Tornados. But they discovered there was already a band in The Hague called The Tornados so afterward, they changed their band name into Golden Earring. I’ve been drivin’ all night, my hands wet on the wheel. The most famous song of Golden Earring is definitely Radar Love and also one of my favorites, of course. The song was recorded in 1973 and the band went international because of this song. For example, […]

Reitores querem discutir o E.S.

“Vamos ter um ano de eleições, os partidos estão a fazer programas eleitorais, vão fazer programas de Governo e o nosso objectivo é fornecer elementos de conhecimento do ensino superior para esse debate”, disse Maria de Lurdes Rodrigues, reitora do ISCTE. Os reitores vão iniciar 2019 a discutir os problemas do ensino superior, convidando para o debate instituições, alunos, académicos, mas também decisores políticos, para, em ano de eleições, tornarem públicas as questões que querem ver nos programas eleitorais. A iniciativa é do Conselho de Reitores das Universidades Portuguesas (CRUP), que ao longo de 2019, mas também em 2020, promove uma convenção do ensino superior, dividida em seis conferências, a primeira das quais está marcada para 7 de Janeiro, no ISCTE — […]

Die Ärzte

Today’s blog post is about a musician from my home country. Therefore, I decided to write about the popular band “Die Ärzte”. Since my early childhood, I have been a huge fan of this band. Perhaps this sounds a bit strange due to the fact that the band is considered to be a punk rock band but I still enjoy listening to their songs and watching their videos. Let me give you some information about this band. The band was founded in 1982 in Berlin by Bela B and Farin Urlaub, who are two of the three band members. Farin Urlaub, the guitar player, Bela B the drummer and Rodrigo Gonzales were part of this band until their breakup in […]

Udo Jürgens

A man who made songs for all generations. Jürgen Udo Bockelmann was born on the 30th of September 1934, in Klagenfurt, Austria. He was the child of two Germans and he grew up in a castle (Schloss Ottmanach) with his parents and his two brothers. Udo Jürgens taught himself how to play the piano when he was a kid.

Dezembro é mês de chuva de estrelas

Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro e, depois, entre os dias 17 e 26. Para apreciar estas chuvas de estrelas não é necessário nenhum equipamento específico, basta olhar para o céu. Durante esta semana, vai poder assistir a uma chuva de estrelas — ou melhor, de meteoros das Gemínidas. Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro, apesar de já ter começado no dia 4 deste mês, mas com menos intensidade. “Popularmente, é conhecida por chuva de estrelas, mas o que de facto estamos a ver é um enxame de meteoros, pequenas partículas de poeira ou restos de rochas que entram na nossa atmosfera e começam a arder.

Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus

An example of how Max Raabe’s music transcends time and space. Max Raabe enriches the musical landscape both nationally and internationally by reviving chansons from the 1920s and 1930s, re-interpreting contemporary songs, and composing film scores. In his early childhood, Raabe became passionate about music and joined a children’s choir. To further develop his talents, he attended singing classes and ultimately decided to study music at the Berlin University of the Arts. In Berlin, he soon found like-minded people and established the Palace Orchestra in 1985. The orchestra specialized in performing music from the 1920s and 1930s. A decade later, the orchestra released a series of songs, one of which appeared in a German film production. Ever since, the orchestra […]

Maior extinção da história da Terra

O estudo divulgado pela revista Science revela que a extinção em massa que ocorreu há 252 milhões de anos foi causada pelo aquecimento global. 96% das espécies marinhas foram exterminadas. A maior extinção da história na Terra, que marcou o fim do período permiano, há cerca de 252 milhões de anos, foi causada por alterações climáticas, indica uma investigação divulgada na edição desta sexta-feira da revista Science. A extinção no final do permiano, no fim da era paleozóica e muito antes dos dinossauros, aconteceu quando o planeta estava repleto de plantas e animais, que foram praticamente extintos. Aquecimento global no Pleistoceno elevou o nível do mar até 13 metros Fósseis em rochas no leito dos mares mostram um ecossistema marinho […]

Living in a island

Living in a island is wonderful, you have the sea near of your house and a nice weather almost all the year But sometimes it’s not so good … A few days ago I was planning a holiday’s trip, the tickets were very cheap (round-trip from Madrid to France 15€ ) but the problem was that going out of the island costed 300€ the same round-trip, so I felt caught and frustrated. Some days before it I was talking with two friends and one of them (from Lisbon) asked me, wouldn’t you live here for the whole life? And I answered of course not. Well, I recognize it leaving here is quite nice, the people is wonderful, also the food, […]

Souvenirs

Are you going on your vacation or actually you are there, but don’t know what to buy as a souvenir? Come on! It is not so difficult at all, is it? We are different, so our taste as well. For one of us the perfect souvenir is postcard, the others might choose some parts of clothes with logo of hosting city. How the situation looks in the most popular destinations for travelling on the Globe? In London people willingly buy thousands kinds of fridge magnet with images of historical attractions and royals, of course. In Paris the winners are white t-shirt and small pendant, both present the Eiffel Tower. What about Funchal? Which object is the most valuable for our […]

Christmas time

This moment of the year is for me really important and emotional as I am writing this text few days before Christmas. Funchal looks fabulous with all light decorations but I still cannot feel that this time is just about to start. What am I missing? I have never spent these holidays abroad, even taking into account the fact that I had already lived abroad before. Beyond the whole religious aspect, this time is really significant for me as my entire family can be together which is normally not so easy as we live in different places. What I appreciate most in Poland is the festive atmosphere when you look out the window and see that snowy and cold land […]

Christmas is here! Or is it?

Three days until Christmas, and this feels even weirder than I expected. Once again I’m comparing my life here now and my life before this experience. Christmas for me usually means snow, family, lots of candles, snow, dark days and snow. This year I won’t get any of these. Okay, I can arrange the candles myself, but not the other things. I won’t get most of the real Finnish Christmas food, because for cooking them I would need an oven. Not going to cemetery on Christmas Eve to bring candles for those who we miss, not visiting grandparents on Christmas day and seeing all the relatives at the same time in the same house. Not seeing the face of my […]

Funchal

The isolated capital of the pearl of the Atlantic Funchal is, depending on whom you ask either a big or a tiny city. The capital of Madeira counts more or less 112.000 inhabitants and is the largest city of the island. But what is Funchal for me? I have been in Madeira for one and a half month now and had enough time to get the first impression of its landscape and also its capital Funchal. When I arrived here I thought that Funchal has everything one could wish for. And that is right… at least when you are a tourist. Here, you can find a bunch of souvenir shops, a lot of cafes and restaurants and a mass of […]

Hiking in Porto Santo

Golden Island is not only the beach! We’ve been told by a number of people that the best time to visit Porto Santo is early Autumn, when the weather is still great but as it’s no longer the high season, the place is more calm and relaxed. Peace and quiet was exactly what we needed, so in the middle of October, after months of waiting for the right moment, we finally got ourselves our tickets to the Golden Island. I imagine most of the people head to Porto Santo with that spectacular 9 km long sandy beach in mind, but I was never too much of a beach person. All my attention and all my curiosity was with the hills […]
