Square Photo. Painting of a person looking straight ahead with index and middle fingers together over closed lips. The person has been painted in a light brown tone, with strong shadows and lighting. The eyes are almost closed. There is not much detail. Only the face and the hand appear. Around it, a very light brown almost yellow circle. The rest of the image is a very light green textured background. The image appears to be old.

It is understood that the Brazilian Higher Education concept of “eadization” is recent and must be monitored so that its identity and function are not lost.

Exploring the synergy and integration among Geodesy, Space Weather and Navigation

Illustration of a field, a runway, sky with clouds and satellites, stations, and a transmission tower.

Air, land, and sea navigation are affected by phenomena that occur in the ionosphere, especially the plasma bubbles, resulting in the occurrence of ionospheric scintillation. This phenomenon deteriorates the quality of the Global Navigation Satellite System, requiring an integration between Geodesy and Space Weather. Read More →

Hyperbureaucratic impacts of digital education management machines

Given the promises of reducing bureaucracy in education, the relevance of rational and informational authority, served by information technologies and digital control instruments, is admitted. Machines for managing education will tend to produce education as much more irrational in substantive terms as more rational in formal terms, which may result in dehumanized education. Read More →
