Passos Coelho anuncia novas medidas de austeridade antes do futebol O primeiro-ministro vai fazer hoje às 19h20 horas uma declaração ao país, anunciou o gabinete de Passos Coelho através de uma nota oficial. A nota do gabinete do primeiro-ministro não adianta o tema da declaração. Passos Coelho afirmou, esta semana que, após a quinta avaliação da troika, não se poderia descartar a possibilidade de um novo aumento de impostos, embora isso não fosse desejável. O Diário Económico avança que o Governo estaria a ponderar um novo aumento do IVA em alguns bens e serviços, de forma a compensar a necessidade de reverter o corte de um dos subsídios na Função Pública. No entanto, apesar das especulações, ainda não foi possível apurar quais serão as medidas a anunciar por Passos Coelho. O Presidente da República, Anibal Cavaco Silva, esteve presente na inauguração de uma fábrica de nanomateriais em Coimbra onde insistiu na ideia de que é preciso repartir os sacrifícios.

Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L'ASPO (Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas) est l'association pour l'étude du pic pétrolier et gazier. C'est un réseau, presque informel, d'ingénieurs, de géologues, de scientifiques de disciplines diverses et d'économistes, qui cherchent à déterminer le moment où le pic pétrolier va survenir, et ses conséquences sur l'économie. Composition[modifier | modifier le code] Elle comprend actuellement 24 membres de 14 pays d'Europe, dont : Prévisions[modifier | modifier le code] Selon l'ASPO, les prévisions de production sont surévaluées pour des raisons boursières et politiques.

Lunar Deities For thousands of years, people have looked up at the moon and wondered about its divine significance. It should come as no surprise that many cultures throughout time have had lunar deities - that is, gods or goddesses associated with the power and energy of the moon. If you're doing a moon-related ritual, in some traditions of Wicca and Paganism you may choose to call upon one of these deities for assistance. Let's look at some of the better known lunar deities.

Blind Spot Blind Spot is a documentary film that illustrates the current oil and energy crisis that our world is facing. Whatever measures of ignorance, greed, wishful thinking, we have put ourselves at a crossroads, which offer two paths with dire consequences. If we continue to burn fossil fuels we will choke the life out of the planet and if we don’t our way of life will collapse. According to one review, it makes An Inconvenient Truth look like a sitcom. There’s a lot of environmental films out there that while not painting a rosy picture still want us to feel a sense of hey things will still be ok, not so with Blind Spot. This absolutely beautifully shot ode to the end of our world as we have known it doesn’t even bother to try and convince us. Either you hear and heed the wisdom of the cadre of experts he presents or you don’t. This documentary is available for preview only - .

10 Weird and Wonderful Women Musicians (Who Eat Lady Gaga For Breakfast) "There is nothing new under the sun," said King Solomon. He obviously hadn't met Nina Hagen. Or any of the other women on this list, all musicians with talent, originality, charisma and intelligence––not to mention a wicked sartorial style! These women are all their own persons, confident in their individuality, wherever it may take them. 10. Bands & Projects: X Ray Spex Time and Place:1970s London Genres: Punk Quote: If anybody tried to make me [a sex symbol] I'd shave my head tomorrow. Poly Styrene was barely twenty-one when her band, X Ray Spex, released their only album, Germfree Adolescents . Sartorial Style: Poly Styrene ran her own, eponymous fashion label in her late teens. I would go to the DIY store and buy sink chain, which doesn't tarnish and is quite shiny and chrome plated. Styrene closed down the boutique, since the band was taking off and she had to choose one or the other. Styrene had an afro, which she accessorized with hats, helmets, head wraps and ribbons. 9. 8.

Le jour où le plein de ma voiture me coûtera 200 euros L'arrivée du "peak oil", du pic pétrolier, celui où la demande excédent définitivement l'offre, ne saurait tarder. D'ic quelques années, malgré quelques tentatives de remplacement par les agrocarburants, nous allons être en manque de pétrole. Nous allons nous apercevoir en passant à la pompe : le prix du plein va monter atteignant 100 euros, puis dans les décennies à venir, deux cent puis trois cent euros. Il nous faudra nous adapter et trouver des solutions. Récit imaginaire de ce qui pourrait se passer et inventaire des différentes solutions dans le domaine de la mobilité des personnes. Pour rester réaliste, les hypothèses formulées dans cette article s'appuie sur deux postulats: - le prix des matières premières (métaux et plastiques) augmentent dans les mêmes proportions. - les déficits publics et privés des pays européens ne soient pas résorbés. 1-Le jour où le plein de ma voiture me coûtera 100 euros: On envisagera aussi d'un autre oeil les déplacements en avion. Conclusion:
