Hoje há "ponte"

Os funcionários públicos estarão hoje em greve. O facto de ser sexta-feira é apenas e só uma infeliz coincidência. Quando os sindicatos representativos (?) dos trabalhadores (???) decidiram pelo dia de greve a 23 de Janeiro ainda não estavam disponíveis os calendários para o ano de 2004.
"In North America the black bear was seen by [Samuel] Hearne swimming for hours with widely open mouth, thus catching, like a whale, insects in the water. Even in so extreme a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale."
