Avaliação de professores

Agora são os encarregados de educação que vão avaliar os docentes. É mais uma forma que o Ministério da Educação deste governo encontrou para pressionar os professores. Haverá algo de positivo nisto?

Descubra as diferenças

No último Prós e Contras, um dos mais discutidos e com lavagem de roupa suja, Ricardo Costa comparou Carrilho a Estaline a propósito de um livro com entrevistas de Carrilho, pelo mesmo censuradas... Este ripostou e afirmou que Ricardo Costa é uma vergonha para o jornalismo. Lindo!! Consta que no final do programa os gladiadores não se cumprimentaram mas nisso Carrilho já é expert...

Good Night, and Good Luck

Edward R Murrow no "See It Now"

A propósito de "Boa Noite, e Boa Sorte" esta noite no Cine Max.
Sobre o "uso" da televisão, extracto do discurso de Edward R Murrow perante a "Radio and Television News Directors Association", Chicago, 15 Outubro 1958:

"I began by saying that our history will be what we make it. If we go on as we are, then history will take its revenge, and retribution will not limp in catching up with us.

We are to a large extent an imitative society. If one or two or three corporations would undertake to devote just a small traction of their advertising appropriation along the lines that I have suggested, the procedure would grow by contagion; the economic burden would be bearable, and there might ensue a most exciting adventure--exposure to ideas and the bringing of reality into the homes of the nation.

To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost.

This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful."
