  1. I've been following the fires on my local TV news and every scene is heartbreaking: people who lost their homes, wild animals that can't be saved, it all is so sad. Did Australia already ask for international help?
  2. That's strange; I thought that the Amazon fire was the first story on news everywhere. At least in Portugal it has been.
  3. Social media and social influencers are two of the worst things ever. And fish is one of the best ones.
  4. Great news! And it was really touching how the whole world worked together to help in the rescue! This was humanity at its best!
  5. Still, bala isn't candy here lol . And yes, we understand you perfectly. It's just a Portuguese thing to be open to other languages (even if in this case it's the same one) and cultures.
  6. https://www.priberam.pt/dlpo/macedónia Despite speaking the same language, Portugal and Brazil have some words with different meanings. Celular, for example; out there is a mobile phone, while here the word is just related to cells (science). Bala is candy there, while here is a projectile. And the list goes on and on.
  7. Nope, not here. What we stude about Greece (or at least how it was studied back in the day) is just the Mythology (and the Olympic Games), Philosophers, Art and Democracy. Basically, just the big picture of Ancient Greece. Subjects like Macedonia and Magno are too particular and specific and so are not explored (if anything, he may be mentioned in a page or two of the History book, but not a chapter; while the region/country itself only appears briefly in the 20th century theme). If one goes to college and choose a course that deals with History, Policy, Geography, etc, Macedonia and Magno will get a deeper attention, for sure; but in the school years before that they aren't front line topics at all.
  8. I saw on the news that they will change Macedonia's name, but I'm not that informed about the drama that is going on with Greece and neither did I know that it has been happening for 3 decades. To now start calling the country by North Macedonia is strange, specially cuz (for the international general public) there isn't a South one to even justify that distinction, but everybody will get used to it as time goes by. The Greeks should relax, they won't lose a place in History because of their neighbor nation's name; in fact, whenever I studied Greece at school Macedonia was never part of the theme, the first time I heard about it was in the 20th century subject and always as a "background character". But anyway, I prefer Macedonia (without the North) as the country's name (in Portuguese, macedonia means fruit salad lol).
  9. I've been following the post-earthquake news on tv since it happened. And I must say that the humanism of it all is very touching with everybody helping, rescuing each other, working together, all for one and one for all. I get emotional every time I watch it.
  10. Have you never seen the 5th Element? Diva Plavalaguna...
