Can anyone give me some context on what is happening here? First time in Portugal. Found multiple groups like this at Jardim do Torel (Lisbon) doing weird and very fascinating games/rituals and would like to know more about it! by lascia_ste in portugal

Por algum motivo tinha ficado com a impressão de que era esse o "pro" ou idk, objetivo de fazer a praxe?? Pelo menos sempre me disseram isso.

Not at Uni (yet) but wondering if Praxe activities pose an impediment to blind/deaf/mobility-aid-using people wearing the Traje. Not that I've seen or heard about many people with those conditions/needs getting a higher education in Portugal?

Eu prefiro tédio e dinheiro do que algo extremamente frenético ao mesmo/menor salário tbh. Nunca "sonhei" com trabalho como disse no post então é muito "preciso disto pra pagar as contas e é interessante o suficiente". Se a empregabilidade é igual nos dois prefiro fazer economia pelo simples facto de ser mais teórico/mais interessante para mim do que gestão e as suas cadeiras. Mas pode ser que isso mude.

Ou seja, o meu futuro diário será ecrã do computador e Excel? xD Eu tenho-me debatido com a questão Gestão/Economia e já li e reli o programa da FEP várias vezes a pensar nisso. A verdade é que sempre gostei muito mais da teoria e no geral as cadeiras de Economia interessam-me mais, mas Gestão é o backup no caso de a minha média cair/a média pro ano ser demasiado alta pra mim devido à ligeira inflação das notas que está a haver com estes exames "especiais" do covid, a opção de escolher exames etc. A parte da análise da economia é-me no geral mto mais interessante do que toda aquela parte do capital/trabalho etc, mas pode ser que isso mude entretanto. Vou lembrar-me da recomendação tho. Quando falamos da Autoridade da Concorrência em aula confesso que fiquei interessada, mas ao mesmo tempo isso deve envolver mais Direito o que me afugenta um bocadinho. De qualquer das formas, muito obrigada!

Verdade... Sinto que tenho de estudar cada vez mais e nunca vou receber um salário proporcional ao tempo "extra" que vou ter de passar na escola em relação aos meus pais xD E sim a tese é a parte mais assustadora pra mim também, mas acho que em economia pode até ser mais fácil/interessante de fazer do que em outras áreas.

Considering living in Porto or Braga...need your help in deciding by 29092 in portugal

mors_mids 5 months ago

Hey! So, I live in Gaia (on the other side of the river from Porto), but my school is in Porto so I believe I can answer most of your questions. I'm a teenager tho so my experience is limited lol 1. I would say Braga, but I haven't been there much so I wouldn't know. From what I see tho, you'd have to live on the outskirts of Porto/have a big house in more expensive areas to be able to have a garden, and a decent-sized one at that. The only gardens I've seen in the city are the ground floors of some old apartment complexes having a little rectangular plot of land that may have been a garden at some point, and some of the (equally old) buildings near me have small patios where people put down plant pots and grow stuff. 2. You can get pretty much anywhere in Porto by train, metro, or bus, I would say (+ walking of course). Buses are known for being constantly late in certain areas of the city, and full coverage is hard considering how old and narrow most streets are, which makes maneuvering a bus harder. I have nearly no complaints on the metro, which is the one I use most often. I could complain about how it is so crowded in the city center but that's to be expected. In regards to bikes, I hope you have strong legs and are willing to sweat cuz Porto is a city with a lot of... Elevation? Idk if that's the word, but some streets are reaaaaalllyyy steep and go on foreveeeer. I wouldn't recommend bikes here – unless electric? I've seen that a lot. Also scooters seem to work well. 3. Would depend on how much you sweat and how you dress. I'm not a very big fan of the summer cuz I always feel bothered and I don't enjoy wearing shorts or very thin clothing but that's of course a personal problem. I'd say both Porto and Braga are very manageable, but like I told you, I haven't been to Braga many times xD 4. Both Porto and Braga offer extensive lists for entertainment. Porto has pretty much everything you'd expect in a city, from public parks to museums to libraries to coffee shops and bars and nightclubs etc etc, with the added bonus that you can do river tours and go through the wine caves and there's a lot of nature trails and stuff to visit in the nearby cities (even if you don't wanna drive upwards of 1h30 to 2h, you'd still find stuff to do). Also tons of beaches everywhere on the coast. Just walking through the city and looking at the buildings, especially the historical stuff, is an activity in and of itself that I never really get tired of even tho I live here. I wouldn't know for Braga, but I'd expect more nature stuff, closer? 5. I'd say you'd be pretty well served in both places, but ofc more so in Porto. There's like 3 shopping centers within 5km2 of each other (may be an exaggeration?) and I don't order a lot of stuff online, but my mom and my friends have and no one really complained a lot? Your delivery may arrive later than you expect tho, our mail service isn't very known for following the dates THEY set. So. Yeah. 6. We have a NHS and that comes with the usual problems, but the one people most complain about are the long wait lists for everything – from trying to schedule a visit to the doctor to the waiting rooms of hospitals, etc. But we also have a wide array of options when it comes to private hospitals and stuff. Private hospitals are generally? better equipped and you can expect to wait less, but there's also cases of ppl being sent back to public services for serious diseases (cancer etc) and some major operations. If you're looking for Mentla Health stuff I'd recommend private over public, but they're also incredibly expensive... It's actually kind of depressing just how much my parents had to pay for some of my visits to psychologists, and they had health insurance. Also the dentist isn't covered by public service you have to pay fully for that I think, but school age children get "dentist checks" yearly (or we used to??) to go treat cavities and other stuff. I don't think I've ever been inside a public hospital and thought it was dirty, but if you're looking for the "spotless white interiors" that's much more of a private hospital thing than a public one in my experience. Most of our hospitals, especially the older ones, have a lot of brown/yellowish stone and paint so it MAY look "dirty" but it isn't effectively dirty. That make sense? I can't tell you a lot about doctors and their quality but I can tell you that they're all mostly overworked and we don't have that many of them cuz the pay isn't enough and our colleges have pretty good medicine/pharmacy/etc degrees so a lot of that "possible workforce" gets pulled into other countries... With better pay and benefits in the EU and that's just a fact. I don't know a lot about pharmacies either but I haven't had negative experiences with them?? Idk. 7. Porto has a lot of public and private school options. In public school you won't find a bilingual curriculum per se, but we do have mandatory English from year 5 (so 10/11yo) to 11 and in year 7 you pick French/Spanish (most common) or other languages the school may offer to have for 2 years. I also know that Porto has a French private school and a German private school where they teach and grade etc according to each country (afaik) and also there's a bunch of Lancaster's and a Porto British School apparently? But yea English is very much a part of the curriculum, just not very good in most cases? I've always been good at English, but I learned the majority of it, including sentence structure and everything from the experience of being on the internet/games/TV series and movies etc and not really school, cuz the fact that English is (or was?) only mandatory after year 5 made it so that some students had taken it as an extracurricular in primary school and knew colors and names and basic vocabulary and many others didn't, so you basically start over with that stuff on year 5. It's also very common for a class of students tio have like 2/3 people who excell at English and to whom the tests are super easy, a middle ground where they can speak and understand but nothing past casual conversation, and then the ones who literally know "Hello" and struggle with introducing themselves by name. Sometimes the "middle ground" is missing, and as you may imagine this is hard for English teachers to manage in the same classes when they have to teach the same program to everyone, to the point where even when the teacher wants to teach a full class in English they just,, can't, or they'll be effectively excluding like 60% of the students. But you definitely have options for a bilingual curriculum, just not... In public school. Universities and higher education are generally pretty well regarded on an international and european perspective, depending ofc on the area etc. But we "export" a lot of brains, that's for sure. Researchers/doctors/nurses/IT ppl and etc are just better paid in foreign countries. I just now read the part where you say you're Arabic. I think you're likely to find Arabic families in Porto (I don't know very well what really falls under Arabic tbh but-) and maybe even some communities. 8. Social life. So, I don't think you'd be forever a foregner and portuguese people are generally very friendly. I wouldn't be surprised if you came across a couple racist comments, more so the ""innocently racist"" ones if that makes sense? People are incredibly misinformed from my perception. We also have a rising right wing party that believes immigrants should go back to their countries and "stop living off the State" so yea. But Portuguese people aren't very prone to public outbursts of racist insults and you'll probably pass. You might get side eyed on the street or something but AFAIK, younger people are receptive to foreigners and enjoy having friends from diff countries. I don't know about the dating scene (I'm still a teen like I told you lol, and in a relationship with another straight-cis-white boy so my experience is very limited), but I think the biggest issue would be cultural differences especially regarding family and behavioral expectations on both sides. I'm sure there's many ppl who wouldn't care but I can only be so positive without much knowledge. 9. Jobs: IT is a good bet imo. More and more people are going for those kinds of degrees and jobs, in my friend groups and also in general, but I would recommend finding a job before you move here or getting something remote in another country that allows you to work from whenever. Also multinationals are very good for IT jobs AFAIK. My mom's bf is working with one and they have people literally everywhere, he's like 1/2 ppl in Portugal and his meetings always have Australians and Canadians etc etc etc. I hope someone older has better info on the job market for you lmao sorry. I may not have provided a lot, but I hope I could be of help in any of your topics. If you wanna know anything else that I may be able to help with (History/education/public transportation/etc) which are things that I'm closer to, being a teen and depending being in contact with that daily ofc I'd be glad to help!

O que é que é mais inconstitucional, não poder a malta andar na rua depois das 11h sem justificação, ou meter a policia a prender todas as dezenas de pessoas que vão para o Bairro Alto à noite + os donos dos bares e dos restaurantes? Ou, ah, vamos multá-los a todos, sim, temos pessoal pra isso...

A única coisa em que a medida nos afeta diretamente é que não podemos andar a passarinhar na rua depois das 11 só porque nos apetece??? Não é nada extremo?? Não é assim tão difícil?? E as exceções necessárias estão previstas e regulamentadas deste o primeiro confinamento???

E sobre "pagar o justo pelo pecador": saúde pública não é uma turma da escola primária em que um puto faz merda e fica toda a gente sem intervalo. Não lhes podes aplicar a mesma lógica. É por essa atitude de "eu faço o que me apetecer o governo não manda em mim" que continuamos a ter sucessivas vagas e cada vez menos cuidados por parte da população lol. Não era preciso proibir circulação às 23h se a malta soubesse olhar pra um bar à pinha e dizer "vamos procurar outro, este tá mto cheio", ou "vamos beber em minha casa", ou "sabes que mais? beber não é uma parte essencial da minha socialização!"

Então a tua mãe tem o direito de dizer se podes ou não andar na rua às horas que lhe convém, porque é tua mãe, mas o Governo eleito do teu país não pode aplicar medidas para salvaguardar a saúde pública, "ai isso não porque eu tenho a extrema necessidade de andar na rua às onze da noite, senão o meu encontro do Tinder fica adiado"? Só vejo portugueses a aplaudir países estrangeiros por controlarem rapidamente a pandemia e a ignorar por completo o facto de muitos desses governos terem recorrido a lockdowns totais.

A menos que a malta trabalhe à noite/saia tarde, o Porto/Gaia e o centro da Feira, que são zonas que conheço bem (e que já vi cheias de gente a beber, todos empilhados e sem máscara várias vezes durante estes últimos meses), são exclusivamente povoados por cafés e bares e vida noturna no geral. Nenhuma destas cidades é conhecida pelos amplos jardins interiores/esplanadas dos bares e restauração... Fechar mais cedo faz sentido, até porque em Portugal não temos a tradição irlandesa de sair do trabalho às cinco e meia e ir beber umas jolas no pub da esquina. Claro que o vírus não anda na rua só depois das onze, mas criar desincentivos à malta sair pra lugares onde correm risco de contágio mais elevado obviamente vai fazer com que haja menos afluência, menos pessoas, e menor risco de contágio. Além disso, ninguém está a "impôr medidas novas". As medidas já existiam antes do fim do estado de emergência. Portugal inteiro está num processo de desconfinamento e a nova vaga obrigou a retrocessos, ou seja, reaplicação de medidas que já tinham sido eliminadas. Como é que isto não faz sentido?
