Better late than never
This update is at least a couple of weeks behind schedule. As some of you may or may not know, Reação Espontânea and 1+1 have premiered on January 26th and are already releasing their third episode this Saturday at 11 a.m. on RTP 1.
Don’t miss Reação Espontânea’s and 1+1’s third episodes this Saturday, February 9th at 11 a.m. on RTP 1. This week Reação Espontânea will let you know how IPATIMUP’s researchers are contributing to improve breast cancer diagnosis. As for 1+1, Marta challenges Rui to solve a riddle: How to slice a cake in eight parts with only three cuts?
I’ve been a little busy over the last few weeks and have been unable to write this post. However, I did update the RTP section of my portfolio with links to Reação Espontânea’s and 1+1’s episodes.
Both shows are part of Magneto, a half-hour show that airs on Saturdays at 11 a.m. on RTP 1, Portugal’s public television. Magneto is divided into five parts under the labels Sustainability, Tolerance, Knowledge (1+1), Coolture and Science (Reação Espontânea). Roughly 10 minutes in, you can tune in to watch 1+1 under the label Knowledge. Reação Espontânea closes the show 20 minutes in, just after Mau Maria, under the label Science.
I’ll be posting detailed updates with in-depth info on all the episodes that have aired so far. For those of you who haven’t seen them yet, you can find the links on the RTP section of my online portfolio, or just by clicking on one of these links: Magneto Episode 1; Magneto Episode 2.
Unfortunately, RTP doesn’t post links for the shows independently so the best I can do is link you to Magneto’s video podcast and remind you that 1+1 begins at about 10 minutes in, and Reação Espontânea at 20 minutes.
And now something completely different
Zut Alors! That’s right, I’ve decided to freshen-up on my French and I’ve just finished a three week intensive course in Front Desk French. Basically it’s a business level French course that focuses on vocabulary for people who are looking for work in customer service. Not necessarily my area of expertise, but it was a good way to get me talking in French, something that I haven’t done out loud in a while.
I finished the course top of my class with an A. Yay, for me. My classmates were great and I really feel that I’ve learned a lot over those three weeks. Will I get to put it into practice? Who knows, I might just pack my bags and fly off to Paris, Lyon or Marseille in the next couple of weeks. My future is now, like never before, utterly unpredictable.
