O folclore está (rá) de volta!?

(Revista Amar / Laurentino Esteves) Numa sexta-feira, ao início da noite, cerca de meia centena de jovens, crianças e alguns adultos do grupo ensaiavam no parque de estacionamento do clube. À média luz e já com o vento de outono, observava todos aqueles jovens empolgados a dançar folclore (podiam estar a fazer outra coisa) mas, ali estavam atentos aos conselhos da ensaiadora Nancy Vieira. O ritmo era composto por dois jovens à concertina – o Miguel e o Mário Pereira! Eu estava que nem um peixinho na água a ver os elementos a dançar, moda após moda, com a ajuda da diretora do grupo Angie Camara que me adiantou que o mesmo foi fundado em 1987 e que desde então têm representado o clube em muitos eventos, incluindo festivais de folclore e, claro, no “Carassauga”. Para meu espanto dançaram a “Chula Vareira”, uma moda da minha linda Póvoa de Varzim… por momentos esqueci-me das agruras da vida! … Read More in Revista Amar >>>

Galo gigante de Barcelos inaugurado no Little Portugal em Toronto

(Revista Amar / Joana Leal) A partir de agora a Dundas West tem um Galo de Barcelos gigante. Esse é um dos símbolos mais conhecidos da cultura portuguesa, mas a partir de agora pode encontrá-lo aqui em Toronto no Little Portugal. Inserido no ano da arte pública, o objetivo da iniciativa da autarquia de Toronto que envolve mais de 15,000 artistas é celebrar a arte e a comunidade. “Nenhum grupo sofreu mais durante a pandemia do que os nossos artistas. Eles não tiveram a oportunidade de fazer aquilo que mais gostam, quer seja dançar, cantar, atuar, ou fazer arte visual. O nosso programa destina-se a ajudá-los a mostrar-nos o que são capazes de fazer”, disse o presidente da Câmara Municipal de Toronto (CMT), John Tory… Read More in Revista Amar >>>

Overcrowded classrooms during the pandemic? It’s not my fault…

TORONTO – Rule number one: it’s not my fault. In the chaos in which Ontario’s Education sector finds itself, characterized by accusations, invective, controversies, complaints, retaliation and divisions, we have witnessed the most classic blame game on the responsibilities in a situation that is becoming unsustainable, especially in the Toronto Catholic District School Board. To try to understand what is happening, we must necessarily start from a fact: starting from October 12 there has been a merger of dozens of classes in many schools of the Catholic Board, with the consequent increase in the number of students in the individual classrooms.

TORONTO – There is a white bicycle at the corner of Bloor and University street. Another cyclist’s life has been claimed and I cannot help but think that this somehow could have been avoided.  The boy was only 18. What makes this even harder is that he appears to be from the Filipino community. This could have been a nephew, a brother, a friend of the family.  This is not the first fatality in the Annex area.  In 2018, at Bloor and St. George, a 58-year-old woman was killed by a flatbed truck.  (more…)

TORONTO – Il distretto elettorale di Toronto-Danforth (precedentemente chiamato Broadview-Greenwood) è un’altra circoscrizione chiave della GTA che potrebbe influire sull’esito delle elezioni. A circa 15 km a est di Davenport, il distretto potrebbe rivelarsi una dura competizione tra i partiti liberali e NDP.

Liberali in vantaggio, ma con i tory nella Gta è sempre testa a testa

TORONTO – Il Partito Liberale è in vantaggio nelle intenzioni di voto a livello nazionale, ma nella Gta lo scarto con i conservatori è minimo. È questa l’istantanea scattata da tre diversi sondaggi pubblicati nelle ultime ventiquattrore, che mettono in luce come in queste prime battute di campagna elettorale l’esito di queste elezioni anticipate sia tutt’altro che già scritto e che, allo stesso tempo, chiunque emergerà vincitore del responso delle urne, difficilmente potrà contare su una maggioranza assoluta alla House of Commons… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Toronto: na sombra dos arranha-céus

(Revista Amar / Manuela Marujo) Nos últimos dez anos, a cidade transformou-se radicalmente devido ao aparecimento de edifícios de arquitetura arrojada, e tudo indica que assim continue. Provam-no os braços dos enormes guindastes a anunciar a elevação de novos arranha-céus. Na minha frente, vejo crescer, entre outros, o polémico complexo Pinnacle, no número 1 da Yonge Street, um conjunto de seis arranha-céus em que a Sky Tower se anuncia como a torre residencial mais alta do país, com 95 andares. Não posso deixar de lembrar os testemunhos que ouvi de luso-canadianos orgulhosos que, nos anos 1960, ajudaram a construir o imponente Toronto Dominion Centre, no “Financial District” – três edifícios com cerca de 50 andares – nas ruas King e Bay, que, em muito, viriam a influenciar o design futuro da área financeira da cidade… Read More in Revista Amar >>>

Cities are the engines of economic growth. In a modern society, technology plays a key role in making cities function better, faster and smarter. Tools like network connections, computers, sensors and cameras, can help communities use integrated data to make wiser decisions. A digitally “Smart City” is a benefit to its residents, but an “intelligent community” is one that uses information and technology to drive prosperity, tackle social and economic issues and helps enrich the lives of its inhabitants.

Allarme variante Delta, focolaio in casa di cura

TORONTO – Adesso a far paura è la variante Delta. Nelle comunità così come nelle case di riposo e di cura a lunga degenza. E proprio questo ceppo – che è oltre due volte più trasmissibile delle prime forme del virus – è responsabile di un focolaio di Covid-19 scoppiato a The Village of Tansley Woods di Burlington. Fino a ieri i casi attivi tra i residenti erano 16 mentre tra il personale c’era solo un contagio.

Tindahan na Paupahan sa Kalye na Pinamimilhan ng mga Mayayaman

Meron 17 na tindahan ang nagsara sa Bloor, 8 nito ay may karatulang “Prime Retail for Lease” sa mga dingding nito.
