Janeiro de 2020 foi o mais quente

Os quatros Janeiros mais quentes aconteceram nos últimos quatro anos. Na Antárctida, foi registado já em Fevereiro um recorde de 18,3 graus Celsius e, três dias depois, os termómetros registaram uma temperatura máxima de 20,7 graus. O último mês de Janeiro foi o mais quente desde que há registos climáticos – que existem há 141 anos –, avançou na quinta-feira a agência norte-americana para os oceanos e atmosfera (NOAA, na sigla em inglês).

Carlo Waibel

Carlo Waibel is a German musician. His artist name is Cro. His music is a mix of Rap and Pop music and very popular by German teens. Curious is that nobody knows exactly how he looks like because he is always wearing a panda mask. He does that for privacy reasons, for example, to be able to walk on the streets like anyone else without being recognized. He was born in 1990 in the south-western part of Germany. He first started to produce music when he was 10 years old. After he finished school he started to work as a cartoonist. Time-wise, he continued producing music. In 2011 he had his break through, due to the musician Jan Delay who […]

Comunicado: Majoração

Comunicado do Reitor da Universidade da Madeira A questão da majoração, para compensar os sobrecustos devidos à condição insular e ultraperiférica das universidades da Madeira e dos Açores, foi um dos temas que marcou, nos últimos anos, a agenda estratégica destas universidades. Como é bem conhecido, por iniciativa do Grupo Parlamentar Socialista, a Assembleia da República, por unanimidade, na Lei do Orçamento do Estado (LOE) de 2019 (no seu artigo 72.º), encarregou o Governo de promover os estudos necessários, com vista à majoração do financiamento das instituições públicas de ensino superior das regiões autónomas, para compensar os sobrecustos da insularidade e da ultraperiferia e contribuir para o reforço da coesão territorial, e de apresentar esses estudos à Assembleia da República […]

Behemoth

Behemoth is a Polish extreme metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content but soon changed to that of occult and Thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences. Despite Behemoth having been labeled as death metal or thrash metal-influenced, Nergal has mentioned that he does not like the band to be […]

Prática desportiva dos estudantes

Deixaste de praticar desporto depois de entrares na Universidade!?  A actividade física e os desporto constituem-se como um pilar essencial para a nossa saúde e bem-estar. De acordo com a Direcção Geral de Saúde, no mundo inteiro, mais de 60% dos adultos não efectuam os níveis suficientes de actividade física que sejam benéficos para a sua saúde. De modo a conseguir compreender a percentagem de estudantes da Universidade da Madeira (UMa) que não praticam qualquer tipo de desporto, a Académica da Madeira encontra-se a realizar um inquérito cujo objectivo é recolher toda a informação sobre os hábitos e níveis de actividade física dos alunos da UMa. Aliado a esse propósito, pretendemos entender quais os principais motivos que conduzem à sedentariedade […]

Cro – a german musician

“I can stand on the stage and then go to the supermarket. Or to the gas station. That’s awesome.” Cro (his civil name is Carlo Waibel) is born at the 31. January 1990. With the age of 6 years, he started to make music. His mother bought him a keyboard and he learned to play by himself. Later, he also learned to play guitar. With 13, he recorded his first own song. 2009 he published his first mixtape “trash” under his pseudonym “Lyr1c”. His genre was a mix between Hip Hop, Rap and Pop – and this is unchanged up to now. He calls this genre “Raop”. In 2011 he published his first mixtape under the pseudonym “Cro”. It is […]

Asteróide, bactérias, vida na Terra

Microbactérias que sobreviveram ao asteroide que matou os dinossauros podem ser a chave para a vida na Terra O asteroide Chicxulub caiu ao largo do Golfo do México há 66 milhões de anos e destruiu cerca de 76% de todas as espécies do planeta. À catástrofe sobreviveram as microbactérias que terão sido responsáveis por dar continuidade ao processo de vida na Terra, concluiu um novo estudo Estima-se que o Chicxulub tenha libertado uma energia equivalente à de 10 mil milhões de bombas atómicas como a que caiu em Hiroshima. Para a atmosfera foram lançados cerca de 425 mil milhões de toneladas de CO2 e 325 mil milhões de sulfuretos que terão formado uma neblina tão densa que deixou a Terra […]

New years eve in Madeira

I stayed here to experience Christmas and New years eve in Madeira. I heard many stories about new years eve in Madeira during the time I stayed here. A lot of people told me that it was the biggest new years in Europe, with large fireworks and parties. Obviously, I looked very much forward to the show. Luckily we managed to secure the roof on our residence during the new year so that we could see all of the fireworks and lights that would be ignited. We also made it a bit of a party where we served food and snacks to each other, with my contribution being ‘oliebollen’ (a traditional Dutch food for new years eve). When it was […]

Nature in Madeira

Nature in Madeira is great! Let’s discover a few things about it. “Olá” everyone, and especially you who are reading this article. You’re reading the 3rd one, and today we’ll talk about nature and some of the Madeiran’s levadas vegetation. First I want to tell you an experience that I had, in a few words. I lost my grandmother a week before Christmas. I discovered that It’s not worth it, going far from the city center to find peace and calm. Not going to Camara de Lobos or Calheta or Santa Cruz (names I remember so far, of villages around Funchal in Madeira. They are not all here quoted, of course). Non! Santa Catarina Park is a great place in […]

We are all one big family

You can learn a lot about different cultures, traditional cuisine and how to rid yourself of stereotypes. Living in a student residence can be annoying, especially when it is overloaded with people or for example the kitchen on the ground floor does not work and all students start to use the one on your floor. But despite all the noise, lack of privacy and a rare state of cleanliness in the kitchen I really appreciate my experience of living in our volunteer and student community. We can always share our experiences and learn from each other and count on each other. On one hand you become more social and open-minded but on the other hand you learn how to enjoy […]

Hiking together

What if we all (volunteers, Erasmus students, international students and madeiran students) could go hiking together? This idea has stuck in my head since long time. It would be so perfect to have the possibility to go out in the nature, not depending on when and where the few public buses could drive you at the weekend. There are just a few options to gain this freedom of self-determined hiking. Renting a car together with friends, going with a friend who has a car or hitchhike. Although every of these options has its benefits the disadvantages are highly considerable, especially when you want to hike with more than 5 people. So as I heard about the guided nature walks Aauma […]

Island Oddities

The strange case of the Principality of Pontinha. Due to their isolated nature, island nations tend to exhibit a heightened sense of the bizarre. I am well aware of this from my home country, with its Byzantine cultural norms and eccentric Monarchy. Madeira is no different, a notable example being the existence of the Principality of Pontinha. Founded by the now Dom Renato Barros I, a former art teacher, Pontinha is a micronation based around an islet on Funchal’s harbour. It was purchased for just shy of £20,000 from the Blandy family, who had themselves purchased the land from the city of Funchal in order to fund a redevelopment of the port in 1903. Barros himself has speculated that if […]

A French Guy in Funchal: The Sequel

My time here on Madeira Island stays very nice, tiring but increasingly interesting. Let’s talk about another subject than food, that is to say food, and two famous pastries in all Portugal! My pleasure, shared I’m pretty sure by many other people, is eating pastries, all bakeries Portuguese have! And the one I could go for from France to Portugal by foot or even by swimming to enjoy is definitely “Pastéis de nata”. This is a little eggs flan tartlet, sold in other countries in a sad way in supermarkets when It’s not artisanal. Indeed I tasted it in France just before coming to Madeira and to Portugal, and that wasn’t such a nice moment. Because when It’s industrial you […]
