WU Pay

Sponsor a Child in Brazil.

Sponsor a Child in Brazil.

At Christmas or Children's Day, trade moves a lot. Many people do not let the date go blank and go in search ofa gift for sons, nephews, godchildren, neighbors, acquaintances, etc.. Some are more generous and extend good work for children who have never seen in life, making donations to shelters, needy communities or even inyour own neighborhood. In both cases, the motivation is the same: to win a smile and, therefore, also the day.

But helping a child does not need to date. And for the most troubled and need not be in person. Many ONGs work with the concept of 'sponsorship', when a donor makes a monthly contribution, and provides assistance in the distance. In Brazil, ActionAid has gainedprominence after the vehicle in a broadcast TV commercial in which the actress Julia Lemmertz explains the actions of the ONG, which has international presence and operates in Brazil since 1999.
The Brazilian region with the largest presence of ActionAid is the Northeast, but also receive other projects. According to the coordinator of fundraising, Benjamin Bruno, the focus of actiondepends on local needs.

Julia Lemmertz sponsors a child by ActionAid and help to change to better the lives of thousands of children in Brazil.
10 years ago in Brazil ActionAidtrabalha with poor people to conquer basic rights such as food, education, genderequality and racial and democratic participation.

Peso da Régua city! The Douro Valley, Portugal.

Douro is one of the world’s famous wine rivers, with spectacular landscape and fabulous wines. Here, in this dramatic and beautiful landscape in northern Portugal, grapes are grown on steep, terraced slopes. One can only marvel at the dedication of the people growing wine in this region. The climate is dry and hot, very hot in summer, and the grapes are picked perfectly ripe. These grapes will be made into port wine, but not only. Peso da Regua, commonly known as Regua, is a municipality in northern Portugal, in the district of Vila Real. With a total area of 94.9 km2, extended over 12 parishes, its population included 17,987 inhabitants (of which approximately 10,000 are in the city of Regua). Peso da Regua was inhabited by Roman and barbarian invasions during the early part of the settled history. Its name, as historians have suggested, developed from a few places: first, the name Vila Reggula a Roman estate that at one time existed near the historic centre; others suggest it originated from the word recua (the ships that plyed the waters along the Douro); or derived the word reguengo (a designation for lands that were attributed to the monarchy). Peso da Regua may also have its origin in the word regra (English: rule), alluding to the hereditary rights of descendents achieved through forals. This theory is based on the donated of lands by Counts Henrique and Hugo in 1093, which were transferred to Egas Moniz. It is likely that this rule gave origin to the word Regoa, and later Regua. In relation to the first word, Peso, there are two opinions on its origin: the first, defends the it was derived from the place where the weighing of goods existed, or where taxes were levied; or, secondly, that the word was probably used to define the placed where animals were fed (Portuguese: pensado), or Penso.

Dá-me uma gota de ti.

Dá-me uma gota de ti
Uma palavra que seja
Despida de todos os sinais
Vestida de outro lugar
Onde habitem vendavais
E gaivotas a cantar
Dá-me uma flor desfolhada
Com seiva de água na boca
E lonjuras de moinhos
Como alquimias de vento
A rasgar céus em pedaços
Como estilhaços do tempo
Dá-me um chá preto das cinco
E o Bolero de Ravel
Com a malta sussurrada
Entre beijos no meu peito
Lábios carnudos que eu sinto
E o sabor da tua pele
Dá-me um trago de ti mesma
Em copo de oiro e cristal
Para que escondidos na noite
Celebremos o teu corpo
Com excessos soletrados
Num desrespeito total
Num desrespeito total
Pedro Barroso

Quinta do Vesuvio

Dona Antónia Adelaide FerreiraQuinta do Vesuvio has rocketed to fame during just a few years of ownership by the Symington family, who are well known to anyone who has more than a passing interest in what comes out of the Douro. Nevertheless, the estate has considerable history, starting with the Ferreira family who established the vineyard in the early 19th century. Of these the most notable is Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, referred to locally as the Ferreirinha; she shaped, terraced and planted the vineyards, a task which reputedly took thirteen years to complete. And with the death of her husband, she continued to build on her success, establishing a domaine which was described by James Suckling, writing well over a century later in Vintage Port, as "The showpiece of the Douro". The quinta she built (is there no end to this woman's talents?) is an impressive building on the south bank of the Douro, midway between Numao and Lavandeira. It contained eight massive granite lagares, each holding twenty-five pipes of wine; not quite big enough for a game of five-a-side, but you could certainly have a good kickabout with a couple of mates.
The wines produced here in the 19th century were very well received. Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira developed her domaine, and her empire; she owned thirty separate quintas, and oversaw an expansion in her estate to over 400 ha, of which 100 ha was planted to vines, before her death in 1896. Her descendants managed the estate for the next century, but the property entered a period of slow decline, compounded by a number of disasters along the way. Phylloxera resulted in a loss of many of the vines, and these were replaced by thousands of olive trees which proved to be a bad business decision; they were quite unprofitable. The vineyard area declined, in part because some sites lying along the banks of the Douro were lost when the river was dammed in 1973. By the late 20th century this left the estate ripe for an injection of new capital and new enthusiasm. This 'showpiece' was purchased by the Symingtons in 1989.
Quinta do VesuvioThe Symington family, the clan responsible for some of Port's greatest names - Graham's, Dow's, and Warre's to name just three - have maintained Quinta do Vesuvio as a separate entity within their portfolio, and have sensitively blended some of the new winemaking techniques available with the traditional practices already in place. Temperature-controlled fermentation equipment has been installed, but the granite lagares, where the grapes are still trodden by human foot, remain. Of the 400 ha, about 100 ha remain planted, mostly with Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Touriga Francesca and Tinta Barroca. With such a large area of vineyard it is only natural that soils and microclimates vary, but the entire vineyard is classified as grade A. The ancient olive trees are also put to good use; there is Quinta do Vesuvio olive oil, as well as honey, almonds and oranges! The wine is bottled exclusively as a single quinta vintage Port, with quality maintained by strict selection; typically only 20-25% of Vesuvio's output goes into the wine each year. Although the total annual production of the estate is 575 pipes, the quantity of Quinta do Vesuvio released each year stands at a maximum of 50 pipes (it may be less depending on the vintage), the equivalent of 3000 cases.

DONOS DE PORTUGAL

Donos de Portugal é um documentário de Jorge Costa sobre cem anos de poder económico. O filme retrata a proteção do Estado às famílias que dominaram a economia do país, as suas estratégias de conservação de poder e acumulação de riqueza. Mello, Champalimaud, Espírito Santo – as fortunas cruzam-se pelo casamento e integram-se na finança. Ameaçado pelo fim da ditadura, o seu poder reconstitui-se sob a democracia, a partir das privatizações e da promiscuidade com o poder político. Novos grupos económicos – Amorim, Sonae, Jerónimo Martins - afirmam-se sobre a mesma base. No momento em que a crise desvenda todos os limites do modelo de desenvolvimento económico português, este filme apresenta os protagonistas e as grandes opções que nos trouxeram até aqui. Produzido para a RTP 2 no âmbito do Instituto de História Contemporânea, o filme tem montagem de Edgar Feldman e locução de Fernando Alves. A estreia televisiva teve lugar na RTP2 a 25 de Abril de 2012. Desde esse momento, o documentário está disponível na íntegra em donosdeportugal.net. Donos de Portugal é baseado no livro homónimo de Jorge Costa, Cecília Honório, Luís Fazenda, Francisco Louçã e Fernando Rosas, editado em 2011 pela Afrontamento e com mais de 12 mil exemplares vendidos. donosdeportugal.net facebook.com/donosdeportugal
