Efeméride do dia

A 28 de Novembro de 1757  nasceu o pintor e poeta  William Blake

Auguries of innocence

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

Next steps

The new Commission must gain approval from the European Parliament before it takes office for a term of office running until 31 October 2014. Commissioners-designate will appear in individual hearings before Parliamentary committees from 11-19 January. The vote of consent on the new Commission as a whole is foreseen to take place on 26 January. On the basis of the vote of consent, the Commission shall be appointed by the European Council. Then it can start working.

I t will do so on the basis of the political guidelines for the next Commission set out by President Barroso in September last. He highlighted the need for EU leadership, shaping globalisation on the basis of its values and interests. Taking global interdependence as the starting point, he set out a transformational agenda for the EU, a Europe that puts people at the heart of its agenda. He emphasized five key challenges facing Europe:

  • Restarting economic growth today and ensuring long–term sustainability and competitiveness for the future
  • Fighting unemployment and reinforcing our social cohesion
  • Turning the challenge of a sustainable Europe to our competitive advantage
  • Ensuring the security of Europeans
  • Reinforcing EU citizenship and participation.

Conservation and Management of the Tomb of Tutankhamen

The Getty Conservation Institute has entered into a five-year partnership with Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) to collaborate on a project for the conservation and management of the tomb of Tutankhamen (KV62). Located in the Valley of the Kings, within the World Heritage Site of Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis, the tomb of Tutankhamen is perhaps the most famous of Egypt’s pharaonic tombs. In November 1922, when British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the treasure-filled tomb, the short-lived eighteenth-dynasty pharaoh attained instant and lasting fame. Though KV62 is the smallest of the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, it was found with its spectacular funerary contents virtually intact and was scientifically excavated over a ten-year period, thus it is of great historic and cultural value.
