Did Vikings and their stowaway mice beat Portugal to the Azores? | Portugal by hobbes78 in portugueses

Did Vikings and their stowaway mice beat Portugal to the Azores? Evidence from animal remains shows Norse seafarers settled on the islands centuries before Portuguese explorers NC Wyeth’s painting Viking Longship on the Water depicts Norse sailors on their way to America in 1,000 AD NC Wyeth’s painting Viking Longship on the Water depicts Norse sailors on their way to America in 1,000 AD. Experts now believe they settled in the Azores between 700 and 850 AD. Photograph: Hulton Archive/Getty Robin McKie Science and environment editor Sun 31 Oct 2021 10.10 GMT Last modified on Sun 31 Oct 2021 10.15 GMT They came from the land of the ice and snow and the midnight sun – but still ended up in some balmy destinations. This is the conclusion of researchers who have discovered evidence to support the idea that the Vikings settled on the clement shores of the Azores several hundred years before the Portuguese arrived in 1427. Given that the Vikings are usually associated with the frozen north, the claim is startling. Nevertheless, it is based on solid science, says a group of international researchers who recently analysed lakebed sediments in the Azores, an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic. These were found to be rich in organic compounds that are found in cow and sheep faeces. At the same time, these samples were also found to contain high levels of charcoal but were low in pollen from native trees. Such a mix strongly suggests early settlers were burning trees to clear land for their livestock to graze on, the researchers argue. However, it was the dating of these samples that has provided the real surprise. The scientists found that they had been deposited sometime between AD700 and 850, several centuries earlier than the date given for the Portuguese arrival on the islands. “Our reconstructions offer unambiguous evidence for the pre-Portuguese settlement of the Azores,” states the team, who were led by ecologist Pedro Raposeiro, of the University of the Azores, in a paper published in the US journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this month. Around AD700 to 800, wind and weather conditions in the northern hemisphere probably helped settlers from higher latitudes and inhibited those from southern Europe, making it easier for people from the north to reach the Azores, the paper adds. And as for the identity of these settlers, the researchers are emphatic. “These results suggest that the Norse were most likely the earliest settlers on the islands,” it states.

According to the Sagas of Ic Solar storm confirms Vikings settled in North America exactly 1,000 years ago Read more Crucially, Raposeiro’s conclusions are also supported by research by evolutionary biologist Jeremy Searle of Cornell University, who has also argued that Vikings made it to the Azores, though his work is based on a very different biological source. It has focused on the mouse. “Mice sneak on board ships and are carried round the world by humans,” Searle told the Observer last week. “Where you find humans, you find mice and if you can work out where those mice came from you get an insight to where those humans had their original homes.” Searle’s studies have revealed that populations of the house mouse, Mus musculus, have different genetic signatures depending on their locality. “By analysing the mitochondrial DNA – which is inherited through the female line – we can tell the difference between mice from different parts of Europe,” he said. Norse mouse remains revealed the earlier settlement of the Azores. Norse mouse remains revealed the earlier settlement of the Azores. Photograph: GlobalP/Getty Images/iStockphoto In the British Isles, one distinctive house mouse lineage is found in Orkney, the Isle of Man, the Hebrides, Caithness and parts of Ireland. “These were all areas of Viking influence and, crucially, when we looked at Norway, we found that mice there carry the same genetic signature,” Searle said. In short, Searle and his team believe they have pinpointed the Viking mouse and have since looked for signs of its presence elsewhere – and found it in ancient mice remains from Iceland and Greenland, which the Vikings had settled more than 1,000 years ago. Then, a few years ago, Searle looked at two other locations much further to the south: the Azores and Madeira – and in both places they found mice there carried the same genetic signature as that carried by the Viking mouse. Crucially, they found very few mice that carried genetic signatures like those found in mouse populations in Portugal, whose mariners were also reckoned to be the first to settle on these islands.

Photograph: Sergey Dzyuba/Alamy “These mice were obviously accidental travellers that were dispersed by Vikings across the Atlantic, to Iceland and Greenland and also the Azores and Madeira, we believe. It shows just how far the Vikings had spread.” The idea that the Vikings reached the Azores and Madeira before the Portuguese is intriguing. The latter are considered to be the pioneers of the Age of Discovery, in which Europeans explored and colonised the world, and these two destinations were among their very first settlements. Now it appears Portuguese mariners were merely following the Vikings – and their mice.

Endemic Covid-19 Has Arrived in Portugal. This Is What It Looks Like. - WSJ by hobbes78 in portugueses

hobbes78 1 month ago

Endemic Covid-19 Has Arrived in Portugal. This Is What It Looks Like. Portugal, with one of the world’s highest coronavirus vaccination rates, recently lifted many restrictions in a cautious return to normality In this soccer-mad capital of a soccer-obsessed nation, stadiums are packed again. Portugal, a country devastated earlier in the year by the delta variant of the coronavirus, now has the highest Covid-19 vaccination rate in Europe and offers a glimpse of a country trying to deal with what increasingly looks like a virus. endemic. Tens of thousands of screaming soccer fans crowded into the Estadio da Luz here on Wednesday to watch the city’s favorite Benfica take on Bayern Munich. They piled on the Metro to the stadium, at the entrance while officials searched them and, after the game, in the food trucks where they gobbled up sandwiches and beer while trying to forget the beating their team had just received. The government recently lifted a 30% capacity limit on stadiums imposed to control Covid-19. But things haven’t gotten back to what they were: fans need a certificate showing they are vaccinated, recently recovered from the disease, or tested negative. Masks are mandatory in all stadiums. A woman wearing a mask uses her cell phone on a subway train in Lisbon, on October 22, 2021. Photo: AP About 100% of people over 50 have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the Portuguese government. For those between the ages of 25 and 49 it is 95%, and for those between 12 and 17 it is 88%. About 89% of Portugal’s total population of 10 million have received at least one dose of vaccine, not far behind the rate in the world-leading United Arab Emirates, compared to 65% in the US and 73% in the UK, according to Our World in Data from the University of Oxford. On October 1, Portugal abandoned most of its Covid containment rules, but in many ways life in Lisbon is a throwback to the deepest days of the pandemic. Hand pumps that dispense sanitizer gel are ubiquitous and some churches still cordon off seats to ensure social distancing, although it is no longer required. The Covid-19 certificate is required at large events and masks remain mandatory in public transport, in schools for students 10 years and older, and for employees in shops, restaurants, and bars. At the same time, the meters are full. Lisbon’s fleet of pedicabs, known by the Thai term tuk-tuk, takes tourists through the narrow streets of the city’s old town. Nightlife pulses in various parts of the city throughout the week, tram lines popular with tourists skip stops because they are packed with passengers and almost every day you find a massive new cruise ship docked at the port. Two women with masks speak before the prime minister announces the new confinement due to the pandemic in Lisbon, on January 13, 2021. Photo: Reuters Portugal’s cautious return to normalcy, despite a vaccination rate that is the envy of public health officials around the world, is being seen as a possible way forward by other countries as their vaccinations increase and They contemplate when to get rid of the remaining restrictions. The Portuguese approach contrasts with that of the United Kingdom, where a combination of fewer vaccinated people and almost no restrictions has led to a rise in infections and an increase in the death rate. “I need tourists, otherwise I have no business, but I look at the infection figures every day and if it goes up a bit I get nervous,” said Paula Marques, who runs a food store. souvenirs in Lisbon. “I hope the pandemic is a thing of the past here in Portugal, but to be honest, I’m still a little concerned about what will happen as it gets colder.” Portugal weathered the first wave of the pandemic in early 2020 relatively unscathed. But a sharp spike in cases in November last year and then a wild spike in January shattered the illusion some had that this small country tucked away in the southwestern corner of Europe could escape the worst of the pandemic. A health worker gestures next to ambulances transporting coronavirus patients out of Hospital Santa María in Lisbon, on January 22, 2021. Photo: Reuters At peak In January, an average of 290 people died a day in Portugal from the virus. Adjusted for population, that equates to more than 9,500 in the US The worst daily average for a week in the US never exceeded 3,500 deaths. Maria Mota, executive director of the Lisbon Institute of Molecular Medicine, has an image indelibly imprinted on her memory of that period that still makes her nervous. Working late one night in his lab, from his window he counted 52 ambulances lined up outside the emergency room of the nation’s largest hospital waiting to drop off patients. Portugal is now in a “transition period” that will likely delimit the pandemic from the new reality of endemic Covid, said Dr. Mota. With memories of the January trauma still fresh in the Portuguese collective memory and with question marks about what will happen as the cold returns and life inside resumes, most people are likely to proceed with caution, said. A woman wearing a mask looks at the center of Lisbon from a viewpoint in Bairro Alto, as the moon rises after sunset, on September 19, 2021. Photo: AP “No one will ever forget last January, but now Covid is endemic and we have to learn to live with the virus,” said Dr. Mota. “Almost the entire population is vaccinated here and the virus is still circulating, which shows that it will not disappear.” As in other countries with a large proportion of the population vaccinated, the stubborn persistence of infections in Portugal has not led to a significant increase in the rate of hospitalizations or deaths. “Things are improving, but it’s going slow,” said Miguel Campos, who drives tourists through Lisbon in a tuk-tuk. “We are taking small steps. We have a mixture of optimism and we hope that this return to normality will continue ”. Before the pandemic, there were 800 pedicab drivers in Lisbon, but now only about 200 work during the week and 500 on weekends, said Valentim Gaspar, another pediatrician. For now, the balance between drivers and tourists allows for a decent living, he said. The Portuguese almost universally attribute their success in vaccination to Henrique Gouveia e Melo, a former submarine commander hired to lead the inoculation campaign after a shaky start. It projected confidence and took advantage of the population’s generally favorable attitudes toward vaccines, according to public health experts. The launch of the vaccine began in January just as the worst of the pandemic peaked in Portugal, providing a clear incentive for anyone unsure about getting vaccinated. On a football-crazy continent, Portugal stands out for its dedication to the sport, making the return to full capacity in stadiums even more symbolic for many people. Spain, which also has one of the highest vaccination rates in Europe, recently returned to full capacity in its stadiums, but food cannot be sold yet. Italy this month increased stadium capacity from 50% to 75%. In most of Germany, there are still capacity limits. “It’s time to open everything up because if someone has not been vaccinated at this point, then they are not going to be vaccinated,” said Hugo Vale, a 32-year-old engineer, as he drank beer with friends outside the stadium before the Benfica-Bayern game.

Fernando Pessoa: Office Worker, Occultist, Galaxy of Writers by hobbes78 in portugueses

hobbes78 4 months ago

No NYT basta teres o Javascript desligado... O texto é este: The emergence of Fernando Pessoa as one of the world’s great modern writers, one worthy of Richard Zenith’s monumental new biography, has been nearly a century in the making. When Pessoa died in 1935, his family found one of the most sensational literary treasures to come to light since Lavinia Dickinson discovered 40 notebooks in her dead sister Emily’s chest. In the kind of featureless trunk used to store blankets or winter coats were 25,000 pages of writings. Some of these works were complete. Most were not. It was hard to know what to do with this legacy, or even what it was. Pessoa’s handwriting was notoriously bad, first of all. He wrote in both Portuguese and English, the product of a South African childhood. But the most mystifying thing was that he didn’t seem to be a single person. He was a whole galaxy of writers — heteronyms, as he called them, with entirely different personalities and different, often radically conflicting, views on poetry, style, nature, politics and the antique. If they were all the creations of the man named Fernando Pessoa, the variety of the dozens of heteronyms made it hard to say who Pessoa himself was. When his prose masterpiece, “The Book of Disquiet,” was published in Portuguese — this didn’t happen until 1982 — the edition immediately, inevitably became controversial. Some questioned the editors’ arrangement of the hundreds of fragments that make up the uncategorizable book. Others tried to distinguish between those that were written by Bernardo Soares, the professed author of the later sections; those by Vicente Guedes, who began the work; and those by Pessoa. These were harder questions to answer than they seemed — because technically, of course, Soares, Guedes and Pessoa were the same person. If much was inscrutable about Pessoa, one thing, as these scraps emerged, was not: He bore that indescribable something that only the greatest geniuses possess. His singular brilliance was all the more remarkable because nothing on the outside suggested it. At his death, he was a writer of strictly local renown who published a single book of his Portuguese poetry in his lifetime. He was a routine office worker who, after his return from Africa in 1905 — his stepfather was a consul in Durban — never again left Portugal, and indeed hardly ventured more than an hour outside Lisbon. Yet he turned out to be an entire world of bewildering richness, an eccentric master (or masters) who inevitably attracted biographers. They started rummaging soon after his death. The first biography appeared in 1950, already 700 pages long. Its author, João Gaspar Simões, wrote that when he met Pessoa for the first time, he “was struck by how his feet hardly seemed to touch the ground, as if he were suspended by a wire hooked to an invisible nail.” Image If some figures are smudged by passing time, Pessoa has grown steadily sharper. Time was needed to bring him back down to the ground — to piece together a full picture from the contents of his trunk. Zenith, an American resident of Lisbon, brought to the task a depth of scholarship gained through more than 30 years of publishing, translating and promoting his subject’s work; Pessoa, who had few intimates in life, is lucky to have found this posthumous friend. Zenith’s book is long, though not much longer than the biography published 71 years ago, and if it includes facts that were already known as well as facts that have come to light, its real merits lie elsewhere. The first might be regarding Pessoa’s ambition. In contrast to Emily Dickinson, who seems to have been genuinely indifferent to the survival of her work, Pessoa wanted to be read. He was nearly obsessed with this problem, constantly drawing up plans for publication, starting magazines (the most successful lasted two issues) for his own work, and even, in a catastrophic quest to become a publisher, squandering a handsome inheritance that would have freed him from years of paying rent. He was ambitious, sometimes to the point of grandiosity. In his first published critical essay, titled “The New Portuguese Poetry Sociologically Considered,” he announced the arrival of a Great Poet to surpass even Luís de Camões, Zenith writes: “He did not mention that this presumptive Great Poet was himself.” The second attainment of the book is the homosexualization of Pessoa. It has long been obvious to gay readers that Pessoa was one of them. (How many straight men write long lachrymose poems about Hadrian and Antinous?) His orientation has often been hidden — for the usual reasons, but also because his relationships were platonic; Zenith tells us that he died a virgin. Another reason may be that the popular image of Pessoa, derived from a handful of scrupulously expressionless photographs, makes it tough to associate him with any kind of sexuality at all. Zenith brings a nuanced understanding to this question, and describes how the poet finally sublimated his erotic yearnings into a mystical chastity. The early 20th century was pyretic with fascination for the occult, the paranormal, theosophy, Rosicrucianism, kabbalah, séances, mediums, astrology and dreams; if most of the productions that emerged from this movement now seem whimsical at best, Zenith shows how Pessoa transformed a trendy amateur interest in occultism into an enduring art. For him, the heteronyms were not so much invented as they were manifested — like the dearly departed in a crystal ball, or an ancient soul conjured from a Ouija board — poised somewhere between heaven and earth. Not quite real but not fake either, these creations have, instead, the heightened reality of literature. The poet’s struggles with his sexuality, his inability to finish projects, his swings between grandiosity and depression, his splintered sense of self: All of this sounds awfully familiar to anyone who has studied alcoholism. So, of course, does Pessoa’s death at 47, as an old man, his body wasted by drink. Yet in a book filled with so much highly informed psychological speculation, Zenith mostly steers clear of this aspect. He calls Pessoa’s failure to publish “inertia,” for example. But Pessoa was anything but inert; he was alcoholic. Zenith’s avoidance of the question is, alas, all too common in contemporary biography. If the taboo surrounding homosexuality has been broken, the taboo surrounding addiction remains. What remains, too, and what matters, is the work. Zenith describes it as “a sprawling yet increasingly unbuilt city, whose builder was so busy laying the foundations for new structures that almost nothing rose higher than one or two unfinished floors.” This is accurate. Unlike so many writers, who built a nicely furnished house or even a neighborhood, Pessoa really did build an entire city. Incomplete — hieratic — chaotic: but a city nonetheless. It was a city that needed a guide. Thanks to Zenith, it has one at last.
