    A Temas Anniversary

    Thursday, August 28th, 2008

    Two years ago The Temas Blog was born. Hard to believe two years have passed already.  Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I’m stil blogging.   I bet that some of you, when The Temas Blog went on hiatus for a few months during this second year while I focused on a full make-over for the […]

    Don’t Be Shy!

    Saturday, June 7th, 2008

    Key to making this blog more useful, informative and readable for you is feedback. For some reason, I tend to get few (non-spam) comments on the posts and pages of Temas. If that’s because you’re reticent about making public comments, suggestions, recommendations critiques or criticisms, no problem, send me a message privately!
    If it’s […]

    Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

    Yeah, yeah, I know I'm running behind in adding the promised sections to the Temas Recommended Reading List, but I'm getting there, slowly but surely! 
    Recently added have been:
        Mining
        Transport
        Urban Environment
        Wastes
    I remain interested in possibly adding a section on Environmental Education, but as I confessed before, it is not an area I […]

    Why? Porque?

    Saturday, March 10th, 2007

    My blogfriend Katia has done it to me again — tagged me for a blog meme. I could (legitimately) protest that The Temas Blog is supposed to be about the issues and not about me, but what can I say, I have a soft spot for cute and amável Brazilian ladies that offer me […]

    Five Things You Should Know about Me

    Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

    My friend Katia "tagged me" for the "5 things" meme.  While I never intended to make this blog so "personal," I'll play along this once because minha amiga Katia é muita amável.
