Documentários BBC: Indonésia Selvagem


Legenda: AQUI

Epi.01 - Island Castaways 
 Shrouded in mystery, Indonesia is a bizarre and beautiful
place. On the distant island of Komodo, we see heavyweight
Komodo dragons throwing themselves at each other as they do
battle for a mate. On Sulawesi, maleo birds incubate their
huge eggs in hot volcanic sand and the female red-knobbed
hornbill, also castaway on the island, walls herself up in
a tree hole for 3 months to protect herself and her chick
from harm.

epi.02 - Underwater Wonderland
 In Indonesia's underwater wonderland, flamboyant reef fish,
huge manta rays and shimmering schools of barracudas ride
the strong currents that flow between the 17,000 islands
that form the stepping-stones between Asia and Australia.
From the pygmy seahorse no larger than a fingernail, to the
mimic octopus that can change its body shape and behaviour
to suit its surroundings, we see the weird and wonderful
inhabitants of this underwater paradise.

Epi.03  Magical Forests
 Magical Forests enters the steamy jungles of Borneo, Sumatra
and Java, where highly endangered Asian elephants and hairy
rhinos still roam. Thousands of miles to the east, we visit
the New Guinea jungle, to find a spiny echidna, prowling the
forest floor whilst the little known tree-house people live
in fragile homes perched precariously in the highest
branches. From sluggish tree kangaroos to flying foxes,
Indonesia is a unique meeting point for wildlife from the
East and West.

Epi.01 - 
(Links cedidos por pp1058)

Nota: A gravação parece ser de VHS, mas a qualidade está bastante boa. No entanto, o vídeo vinha com mais de 30 minutos de imagem negra no fim e eu cortei-a com o VirtualDub. O ficheiro ficou com um tamanho mais pequeno, mas isso significa que sou a única fonte disponível.

2) Martin Heidegger: Design for Living

O projeto do tratado Ser e Tempo, foi publicado em 1927 no mesmo ano que Minha Luta (Adolf Hitler). Este programa examina a vida e a filosofia de Martin Heidegger, descrevendo a sua ascensão a proeminência intelectual, e expondo os motivos de seu envolvimento com o partido Nazista. Entrevistas com o seu filho, Hermann Heidegger, George Steiner autor de uma influente critica de sua filosofia, contado também com o seu biógrafo Hugo Ott; e ex-aluno de Hans-Georg Gadamer, fornecendo novas idéias enquanto se faz uma reconstrução dos momentos chaves da vida de Heidegger. Vida e historia de um homem cujos apologistas e os antagonistas ainda amargamente se dividem.

3) Jean-Paul Sartre: The Road to Freedom

O Caminho para a Liberdade
Neste episódio, a vida e a obra do mais famoso filósofo existencialista europeu, Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980), são abordadas. O homem que passou a vida desafiando a lógica convencional amava os paradoxos. O documentário expõe estes paradoxos de sua vida e sua obra, ao mesmo tempo em que questiona ambos. A pergunta central colocada é: Se o ser humano é livre para fazer o que quiser, como postula Sartre, então como devemos viver nossas vidas no dia a dia?

Documentários: PBS: DNA

Voltando aos posts normais do blog..... mais um documentário.


Tamanho: ~700mb
Duração: ~60min

Specifically, it was a race between two teams of young scientists working in Britain, as well as the esteemed chemist Linus Pauling, based in California. Already a Nobel laureate, Pauling may have been the favorite, but the discovery would ultimately be made by his British counterparts. Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins were trying to identify the structure by studying X-ray diffractions of the DNA molecule. But Jim Watson and Francis Crick studied a little bit of everything -- including, to the consternation of some, the work of their competitors. A few have gone so far as to accuse Watson of stealing Franklin's X-ray work.
In any case, Waston and Crick's inquisitive working style ultimately allowed them to determine the DNA structure first, in 1953 -- an achievement that led to their Nobel Prize in 1962. Meanwhile, Franklin passed away in 1958 from cancer.

Biotechnology would soon transform the pharmaceutical industry and genetically modified food was to herald the biggest revolution in agriculture since the industrialization of farming. Yet the public was skeptical, and so were certain scientists. Some feared that a cancer-causing gene stitched into the DNA of a bacterium might be accidentally absorbed in the human gut, enabling cancer to be passed on like an infectious disease. Biologists from all over the world were called to a meeting in California to draw up a strict set of safety guidelines.
When the panic subsided the stage was set for a biotechnology bonanza. A race began to produce genetically engineered insulin. A couple of years later a young researcher called Rob Horsch, who worked for the chemical giant Monsanto, produced the first genetically engineered plant. The biotech revolutions had arrived.


The story begins in 1990, when the Human Genome Project was launched to decipher the complete instruction manual of the human being. This epic endeavour took over a decade to complete and cost billions of dollars. Eight years after its launch, a rival private bid was announced in an attempt to shut the public project down. A personal feud erupted between Craig Venter, who ran Celera's privately funded Genome Project, and Sir John Sulston, who oversaw Britain's share of the public Human Genome Project. Craig Venter believed he could finish the Human Genome several years before the public project.
The fighting became so intense that President Clinton stepped in to try to unite the two sides. Clinton asked a go-between to sort out the two warring groups. Over pizza and beer in a basement, the two sides agreed to a cease-fire. They would announce their draft results -- together -- in a joint celebration hosted by The White House in June 2000.


The article described the work of a local doctor, Brian Druker, who was testing a new kind of cancer drug. In 1997, months away from death, Bud Romine became the first patient ever to take Gleevec. Within 17 days, Bud had returned to perfect health. Indeed, the drug seems to cure everyone with Bud's disease -- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia -- by fixing the DNA that causes it. Today, the prospect of more drugs that work at the level of DNA is a real one. In 1990, Gleevec was the only one in development. There are currently hundreds of drugs in development that might work in the same revolutionary way on different kinds of cancer.
The final work for the DNA scientists is identifying all the damaged genes that cause cancer. But with the Human Genome Project finished, a single lab will be able to do this in just five years. Fifty years after Crick and Watson discovered the double helix, the secret of life may finally be living up to its name.

Palmeiras campeão da Copa do Brasil 2012

Eu sei, vocês devem estar estranhando uma postagem de futebol, é algo tão frivolo e trivial que até hoje só postei um documentário aqui no blog. Mas essa postagem é uma exceção...é especial....porque só quem é palmeirense sabe o que é torcer e sofrer por esse time."Mas com as outras torcidas também é assim, blá blá blá..." eu sei,  mas no Palmeiras é diferente sim... porque não é "Vai" é " Vamos"..... "Vamos Palmeiras". O "sofrimento" dos corinthianos que nunca tinham ganho uma Libertadores não é nada comparado ao sofrimentos dos palmeirenses, que tinham um jejum de 12  anos sem comemorar um título nacional. Aos torcedores do Coritiba ( como diria o Verdazzo"Ui eles fazem o Green Hell" e estão até agora nele) fica a dica, cuidado com salto alto, mais respeito porra.  Falar demais meus caros, não é...nunca será fator para ser campeão.

Palmeiras - Bi Campeão da Copa do Brasil (Imagem: Portal IG)

"As Taças Brasil de 1960 e 1967, os Torneios Roberto Gomes Pedrosa de 1967 e 1969, os Brasileiros de 1972, 1973, 1993 e 1994 e a Copa do Brasil de 1998 pareciam parte de um passado distante. Com a conquista de 2012, o décimo título nacional de sua história, entretanto, o Palmeiras ultrapassa o Santos (com nove) e se isola como maior campeão do Brasil. Os fantasmas de eliminações inesperadas e campanhas frustradas na era dos pontos corridos, ao menos por enquanto, ficam de lado para o torcedor em festa." ESPN

Por isso quero compartilhar essa postagem em especial com  todos os vistantes palmeirenses do Discovery Blog! Campeão porra, Palestra!!!  Vamos soltar esse grito, vamos comemorar a volta do maior campeão nacional. Breve vai ter um documentário sobre esse titulo...aguardem =)

Documentários BBC: The Hunt for Higgs

Demorei a postar,  mas postei, um documentario sobre a partícula de Higgs!

Horizon goes behind the scenes at CERN to follow one of the most epic and expensive scientific quests of all time: the search for the Higgs particle, believed to give mass to everything in our universe. However, the hunt for Higgs is part of a much grander search for how the universe works. It promises to help answer questions like why we exist and is a vital part of a Grand Unified Theory of nature. At the heart of the pursuit of the elusive particle is the same feature that makes snowflakes beautiful and human faces attractive: the simple and enchanting idea of symmetry.
