Legionella has become issue of the day everywhere in my country: Portugal. At the moment the portuguese news have recorded about 302 confirmed cases of Legionella. Legionella bacteria caused 9 deaths here. This outbreak of legionella is the third largest ever in the world. We can contract this disease in the shower, or to use lavatory, for example, at public swimming pools or even through the air coming from the centralized air conditioning apparatus. The infection is transmitt...

It's a classic: when speaking of generations, the oldest ones are always the best. The old one have read more, studied a lot, were more hardworkers. And all of them - the oldest one- look with a particular concern for the age group now between 20 and 30 years: "Unfortunatelly, youth people are lost". But if these old people admire and deposit in the new generation a great felt and hope? The country and the world watched in recent years to a profound paradigm shift. Everything...

"Poverty is the cause of crime". This statement is usually used for the defense of the poor people, but which justifies the preference of previous suspicions that the police have. These foundations are based on the assumption that the poor people act by crime to survive. But in reality it is not.

To help others, it is not necessary to leave the country or go further away from where you live. There are places, community centers where you can make a difference in the smallest ways. In September, I will help people with reduced motor skills in Fatima. I decided to volunteer with a friend (The same friend who will go with me to Africa when we grow up). The good is to contribute to the happiness of others and I'm sure I'll love it. I think the smile of the people who are bei...

Being proud in the culture and traditions of our country is good and normal. When you take a trip to another country, do you feel proud when you talk about your nationality? But some people think of patriotism as a social problem. Some consider patriotism as a way to be proud of the culture of their country. Other people consider patriotism as the "result of arrogance, conceit and egotism," which can cause bad relations in all aspects. What you think about that?

In my opinion, schools currently put too much pressure on children. In a way, it shows them the competitive side and the pressure of "being better than the other." Children are "formatted" in this competitive society and sometimes do not remove the "pleasure" of studying. They see the school as an obligation and not as a resource for building their own future. The pressure caused by the overload of homework, tests, etc. damages the student. Should we think in a more sustainable...

This issue of abortion is one of the most discussed worldwide. In my opinion, abortion in cases of extreme health must be authorized. But for negligence and carelessness (most cases) pregnant women should let the fetus develop. After a week, the fetus is already considered a human, and like everyone, has the right to life. If the woman does not want to raise the child after birth, the mother should give the child up for adoption. Thousands of infertile couples around the world ar...
