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. A descoberta é de investigadores do Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde (i3S), no Porto. 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 […]

Alterações climáticas na Madeira

A especialista alerta que a subida do nível médio do mar promove a erosão de toda a região costeira e uma maior ocorrência de períodos de chuva, que podem depois desenrolar-se em cheias. A ilha da Madeira está “particularmente vulnerável” às alterações climáticas, devido à “maior incidência” de eventos extremos e aos “perigos” associados à subida do nível médio do mar, alertou esta segunda-feira a cientista da ONU Joana Portugal Pereira. “Esta subida do nível médio do mar promove também a erosão de toda a região costeira, eventualmente deslizamentos de terra, e maior ocorrência de períodos de grandes precipitações, que podem depois desenrolar-se em cheias”, explicou Joana Portugal Pereira, numa conferência organizada pela presidência da Assembleia Legislativa da Madeira, no […]

The art of Open Doors

We cannot pass without admiration for the art in Santa Maria street. More specifically, this project concerns around 200 painted doors which transformed this historic part of the city in open and permanent art gallery. This idea of painting doors emerged in 2010 and it was a result of cooperation between José Maria Zyberchema and João Carlos Abreu, the former Regional Secretary for Economy, Tourism and Culture, the Funchal Municipal Council and two private companies. The project was presented for the first time in an event called PechaKucha by José Maria Montero. After that, on April 2011, in the street of Santa Maria at number 77 the first door was painted by the artist Mark Milewski. It looks like a […]

Municipal Theater: Baltazar Dias

In the 1880´s It became the Theater as we know it today. Hey guys! After telling you my first impressions about the Island, about food, a little bit of Flora and Fauna, about History, and one of the Kings of Portugal, last month you discovered one French author, Antoine de Saint Exupéry, and one of his famous books, Le Petit Prince. For April we are gonna talk about the Municipal Theater of Funchal, Municipal Theater Baltazar Dias or “Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias”. When we speak about the Theater Baltazar Dias of Funchal, we could speak about the Theater La Scala of Milano or about the Theater D.Maria II of Lisbon (Queen of Portugal between 1826 and 1853). As some people […]

Saint John the Evangelist church

The church is built in mannerism and baroque style. The Saint John the Evangelist church, or college church, was built in the seventeenth and eighteenth century after the Jesuits college was built. It is, for me at least, one of the most impressive monuments in Funchal. In the 16th century, the Jesuits came to Madeira. They came to the Island because the island was invaded by French protestant pirates. Jesuits are part of the Society of Jesus, this Catholic order emphasizes on Education. Because of this, the Jesuits were the perfect chosen ones to convert the people in the island. The Jesuits college was built in the sixteenth century under the order of king Sebastian and right after that, the […]

Pillory of Funchal

The pillory: the macabre symbol of justice in old Europe and Portugal. On my tours, through the city of Funchal, I often pass the pillory of Funchal and explain its history because it is an important monument to understand the past of the city. The pillory was a device used all over Europe and has its roots in the medieval times. It was either made of a wooden or metal framework erected on a post, with holes for securing the head and hands or, like the pillory of Funchal a stone column formerly used for punishment by public humiliation and often further physical abuse. In Portugal, a pillory is called a Pelourinho and often classified as national monuments since they […]

The Cathedral of Funchal

Sé parish is considered to be the second oldest quarter in Funchal. The Sé parish is located between the Cathedral and Ribeiro de João Gomes, the area where the sugar merchants settled in the 15th century. The constructions of the Cathedral started 1493 by the orders of Duke Manuel of Beja and Viseu, who later became the King Manuel I of Portugal. It was built on a sugarcane field, which was donated by the soon-to-be king Manuel I. The Cathedral was finished in 1517. It is built with tufa stones, which were brought by boats from Cabo Girão. The street to the sea in front of the Cathedral, and also behind it, was made into waterways, so the boats could […]

A meio da corrida

Já la vão 6 meses, já se vê formar um verão pela primavera que vai ficando. Hoje é o dia do Pai, 19 de Março, dia que lembra que nada é efémero, nem pai, nem esta experiência fora de Portugal. Mas que permanece connosco até a vida nos faltar. Na Bulgária os dias mais quentes vão chegando com pequenas mudanças na natureza, a brisa vem fresca e carregada de flores e sementes. O café já é tomado na varanda e o frio vai desvanecendo. Com o passar da estação segue a mudança. Neste momento a aragem está abafada de monotonia e a saudade desprende-me. De pensar que conhecia o meu mundo criei uma ingrata rotina que se consome da saudade. […]
