Eugénio Rodrigues, David Sousa-Rodrigues, Mafalda Teixeira de Sampayo, Adélio Rodrigues Gaspar, Álvaro Gomes, Carlos Henggeler Antunes Abstract: Generative design methods are able to produce a large number of potential solutions of architectural floor plans, which may be overwhelming for the decision-maker to cope with. Therefore, it is important to develop tools which organise the generated […]

I’ve just read that the Portuguese bought 756 (+17%) full electric vehicles during 2016 (mostly Nissan Leafs). That might seem a small number — as it is just 0,36% of the market — but it is a good clear sign of the future. Electric is both cheap and clean and with the arrival of the […]

The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East 2★ by Robert Fisk This book could have been very interesting if it was reduced to one third of its size. At more than 1000 pages it becomes very boring to read through. My advice? don’t bother with this one, or just skim through […]

Can the Future Faraday FF91† be it? One of my recent interests is Electric Cars. It is my belief that the combustion engine is going the way of the dodo. Personally I need to replace my almost 20 year old Rover in the next couple of years. The recent announcement of the Faraday Future FF91 […]

Apple CEO, Tim Cook must resign and the company should shift towards a more aggressive development strategy. Apple at the present is just a company of incremental improvements of existing products and market expansion. There are no new products to come. No new directions to travel. The problem with apple started when the company stopped […]

Finally, after so many nights, Apple showed something that might be important for the future of laptops. The Touch Bar. I haven’t written about Apple in a long time. The reason being that the past iterations of the Mac were, well, bland. But now, I think that this hybrid approach to input in the laptop […]

There you go again, apple releases a new OS and Dave starts bitching about how broken Sierra is. Here’s a list of things that stopped working and that I’m really upset about: I use a different keyboard layout called ColemaP. A slightly optimised version of Colemak. This keyboard layout relies on the Caps Lock key […]

Há algum tempo disse aqui que achava que a lente AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f1.8 G da Nikon era um mau investimento. Na altura justifiquei essa opinião comparando-a com a 35mm f2 AF-D. A verdade é que não podia estar mais enganado. Dizer mal de uma lente nem sempre é fácil e se não metermos […]

Não há muito a dizer neste último comentário. Apenas que GANHAMOS E SOMOS CAMPEÕES EUROPEUS. Mas ainda assim algumas notas: Como tinha pensado na última entrada, o cansaço acumulado da selecção francesa foi determinante. Fernando Santos acabou por fazer uma gestão dos minutos que ajudou Portugal (apesar dos 3 prolongamentos) a ter mais frescura física. […]

Um dos factores que muito se tem falado tem a ver com o cansaço do jogadores. Será que vai ser um factor decisivo na final do Europeu? A verdade é que Portugal e França são muito semelhantes na utilização de jogadores neste Europeu 2016 (com algumas diferenças). Portugal tem 3 jogadores com mais minutos nas […]

I’ve been a bit sceptic about electric cars getting massive adoption in the next few years because of the battery technology. I believe that you’ll need at least a 10 fold increase in capacity per litter and cost before you’ll see massive adoption of the electric car. And politicians forcing electric cars on us won’t […]

E mesmo vencendo é sempre possível melhorar. A selecção continua a mostrar alguma fraqueza, principalmente no toca a controlar o meio campo, mas se a solidariedade defensiva é notória o ataque é manifestamente parco. Uns dirão que é defeito outros que é feitio do Fernando Santos. Solidez e depois logo se vê o que se […]

Facebook to translate posts into different languages AUTOMATICALLY Well, AUTOMATICALLY is the interesting aspect of all this.

O Português é um tipo teimoso, que é incapaz de mudar de rumo mesmo que na sua frente esteja um iceberg, e chama a essa teimosia “persistência”, “acreditar”, “fé”. O Fernando Santos é um desses Portugueses. Tem uma fé inabalável numa forma de jogar que tem mostrado um futebol um tanto ou quanto chato, mas […]

After loosing to Chile (second time in a row), the second best player in the world doesn’t want to play anymore for his country at the age of 29 (after four lost finals). Maybe there was some problem with the money suitcase travelling to the Cayman islands, but in any case Argentina loses big time […]

Tudo neste último jogo foi diferente dos anteriores, apesar do empate — nos 90 minutos. No jogo do mata-mata não há espaços para recuperações milagrosas como as do jogo com a Hungria. Fernando Santos sabia-o e colocou uma equipa mais sólida defensivamente. Que antes de ganhar o jogo sabia que não o podia perder infantilmente […]

There are two ways of doing statistical analysis. One that I call the Excel approach and the other that I call the Experts approach. You use the former if you are a mouse user, and like to point and click at things without understanding what is happening. You can also forego control too. And you […]
