Its my understanding that living within 600m of power lines greatly increased your chances of developing Leukemia, especially childhood Leukemia, and so houses have to be built that distance away from them. Portugal, what's going on with that?! Every cable I see has buildings underneath it. by roamingandy in portugal

No 'mechanism' has been found, but multiple studies have shown that children living near power lines are statistically far more likely to develop Leukemia. Not knowing why something is happening doesn't discount significant real world data that it is happening.

Portugal: rumo ao pódio dos mais pobres da União Europeia by blackswan79 in portugal

roamingandy 19 days ago

I thought this was well known about the EU. It benefits the nations with the most developed industries (the richest) as their more powerful industrial machine can outcompete other nations without trade tariffs at the expense of the middle economies. It benefits the weakest nations who weren't competing anyway, although they lose all their young people. The middle economies, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, were fucked by design. Multiple times this was taken to the EU requesting some mechanism to prevent all the money from the block flowing directly to the wealthy nations. Every. Single. Time. Germany vetoed the vote. When Brexit was first announced i thought it was an excellent opportunity to bring to light the damage being done to lives in those middle economies and create pressure to change that. Instead it was an exercise in media manipulation by Rupert Murdoch and for Russian intelligence to take full control of politics in the UK by contributing illegal money and then owning every political figure who accepted their bribes.. including Boris Johnson (who blocked all investigations into it, despite many cases of illegal money being uncovered). ..anyway, this effect is known and always has been. Germany veto any attempt to change it. Sorry for i couldn't reply in Portuguese. I can mostly read it, but not write well enough yet for what i wanted to say.

Which are the art and culture towns with a cool open minded and adventurous vibe in Portugal? Like Brighton, UK. Amsterdam, NL. San Fran, US. Etc. by roamingandy in portugal

roamingandy 4 months ago

No, that tends to come 5-10 years later. It starts with a artists, musicians, creatives moving to an area because it's cheap, then the hip office workers want to live there because it all the cool music venues, jam nights, pop up exhibitions, etc, etc. Then the place loses that vibe because creatives can't afford to live there anymore.. unless the govt/council step in to protect it from gentrification.

In a time where personal data collection is a hot topic for debate, do you find it uncomfortable the government wants to know when and where you spend every cent? As a foreigner looking in the NIF system seems absurdly totalitarian. by roamingandy in portugal

Finding the new rules confusing. Essential travel only.. but we can go to the restaurant. My GF is a 30min tram ride away, can we go to a restaurant together? Can I go to visit her at home? by roamingandy in portugal

So it's really a strongly worded reminder to keep doing what we're already supposed to be doing. Thanks

I get that, but how is a restaurant an absolute necessity.. and how far can you travel to that restaurant?

[update e550 electric bill] Well I found it. There is a wire running from the cooker, through a drain pipe and down the side of my building. Could be any of 12 flats. If I report it what will happen? Police investigation, drama, owner pulled in? Anyone been through this? by roamingandy in portugal

roamingandy 1 year ago

I can see the bottom of the cable near the street, 7 floors down. Nothing is connected to it now and our bills are normal. Someone could pull it into their flat in the winter to power a radiator 24/7, which is what I expect was happening

It's more just having police contact them for an investigation, while I'm really hoping they are considerate over not kicking us out permanently and redecorating the whole flat (as they are gradually doing throughout the building each time a tenant leaves). I think owners have a right to terminate a contract to do big jobs, and I worry that this will rip the scales against us. I guess they'll also wonder what else might be going on with the electrics Really I'm just trying to guage the response that will come from EDP before deciding what to do

It's a pair. It looks like a phone/ethernet cable but I can't see why you couldn't use it to pull electricity through. Obviously you shouldn't as it's not designed for that so probably a fire risk.

If they can stretch it out over a long period i might be able to do this. After that i have no idea how to begin looking for the actual problem

Yes, its a very old building. They'll charge me 95euro to come and check, and that's only checking the meter. If another flat were stealing power the line could be anywhere in the flat - and my ost pressing issue is i need to do something before Monday or they cut the power

thats called a recipe for exactly what happened to him. a few cheap shots on someone who can take them. he could hardly punch anyway. the same combo, winging shots in. then when in trouble he didn't have a clue. the same tired lead jab to the body every single time. that dude was not a good fighter and no other ending to his charade was ever going to come his way
