Thanks, Obama.

The purpose of this post it not of political nature, and only reflects the opinion of one person of the other side of the Atlantic.

Obama is now leaving the White House, after 8 years of being President.Throughout his mandates, he faced a lot of difficulties inherent to the job he was going for.

He was the first black president of a country that still has lots of issues regarding racism, and won in the first year, controversely, the Nobel Peace Prize, which only a handful of presidents have been graced.

And he knew how to be funny in probably the most important job in the world.

And he even handled American’s number one competitor with laughter.

And in the not so great moments, he stood up with a positive and intellectual look, leaving us with wisdom.

He was also the target of many people that blamed him for everything bad that happened.

And in the final moments, he still had the time to be another meme.

I hope the new President does his best. For everything, thanks, Obama.

Is economy a science?

[ENG] I came across this video, which provides a new look into economy.

The GIP wishes you think about it and make you question the important things that surround you.

Do you share this point of view?

May The Almighty GIP be with you, Blck Dth Jqs

[PT]Deparei-me com este vídeo, que contém uma visão diferente sobre a economia.

O GIP espera que pensem sobre o vídeo, e que reflictam e questionem sempre os mais importantes aspectos que rodeiam a vossa vida.

Partilham deste ponto de vista?

Presépio do Jardim da Serra

[PT] Num dia frio e enublado de Inverno decidi subir até o Jardim da Serra para visitar o presépio tão falado. Devo confessar que achei a experiência um pouco claustrofóbica pois os corredores eram apertados enquanto estava presa numa enorme fila que avançava muito devagar.
O melhor foi o aspecto cultural e histórico que emprestaram a uma tradição normal de Natal, tínhamos vários momentos como a construção de túneis, as casas tradicionais e lagares que fazem também parte das memórias da sociedade e que já caíram em desuso. Tirei algumas fotos que partilho em baixo.

[ENG] In a cold and foggy Winter day I decided to climb until Jardim da Serra to visit their nativity scene, a quite popular one. I must confess being trapped in a big slow moving line in close corridors made me feel claustrophobic but overall it was enjoyable.
The best part was adding culture and history to a wide spread tradition of Christmas so we had not only Jesus and Mary but also the constructions of tunnels, traditional houses and places like the Lagar that belongs mostly to the memories of a close past. I took some picture and I hope you enjoy them.

I Zombie

izombie-header3

[Eng]  Liv Moore has a perfect life, a residency in a big hospital, a fiancé until on day she goes into a party that goes awfully wrong. When she wakes up at the shore of the lake she is a diferent version of herself, white hair, pale skin and a crave for brains. To keep her sanity, she leaves everything behind and starts a new job at a morgue due to her new condition.

I must say, I wasn’t expecting much from this series but now I am obsessed. Sure enough, IZombie is the kind of show that you will start watching out of curiosity but stay due to it’s addicting quality. The show just flows naturally and it never makes you stop to question the logic behind it.

So I believe this is the zombie show for people that don’t like series like The Walking Dead or The Strain becuse it treats the infected as people with a chronic disease instead of just treating them as monsters. The story is very intriguing and unexpected, it’s full of humor and likable characters. I advise you to give it a chance.

[PT] A protagonista Liv Moore tinha o seu futuro planeado com um estágio num grande hospital e noiva até ao momento que se vê encurralada numa festa trágica. Quando ela acorda na baía do lago pálida, com um cabelo claro e um estranho desejo por cérebros é obrigada a deixar tudo para trás de forma a não perder a sanidade que lhe resta.

Esta série apanhou-me de surpresa porque nunca esperei estar tão envolvida com a história mas os episódios são tão condensados e viciantes que é fácil ver cinco ou seis episódios de uma só vez. A narrativa é diferente e divertida com personagens cativantes e alguns momentos de comentário ao género em que se inseres.

Para mim esta é a série para as pessoas que não gostam muito da temática dos zombies porque não os trata como infectados que enlouquecem do nada mas pessoas com uma nova doença para o qual não existe ainda tratamento. Aconselho a espreitar esta série.
