Dia Mundial da Psoríase
(World Psoriasis Day). The day was established in 2004, and organized by the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA), an international organization whose membership is made up of psoriasis organizations from countries around the world. Psoriasis is a life-long skin disorder that causes red, scaly patches called lesions to appear on the skin. The lesions can show up on any area of the skin. There are several different kinds of psoriasis. Nearly three percent of the world population suffer from psoriasis. Most of them feel constant pain from cracking and bleeding skin. Others feel embarrassed for the existence of visible skin lesions. Unlike what many may think, psoriasis is not contagious. Despite worldwide efforts, there is no cure yet, but the lesions may be well treated.

O livro fala de paixão,
perdas, de alegrias, de vida –
por isso ele é importante.
Ler é um direito, não um dever.

Foundation of Biblioteca Nacional do Rio de Janeiro
In 1808, the Portuguese Royal Family moved to the Portuguese colony of Brazil, in order to escape confrontation with the advancing troops of French Imperial Army. Brazil turned from a colony to a full member of the Portuguese Empire. Ports were opened for international trade, the ban upon press was lifted. Books and journals were allowed to circulate. On 29 October 1810, the valuable Portuguese Royal Library (books, maps, medals, and coins, for instance) was transferred to Rio, and the Brazilian National Library (Biblioteca Nacional) was founded.

Military coup against President Getúlio Vargas
The roaring Twenties and Thirties in Brazil were characterized by a number of revolts and uproars. Young lieutenants started mutinies against the established (military) order. Such as in Rio de Janeiro in 1922, and in São Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul in 1924. On 24 October 1930, a military coup, led by Getúlio Vargas, marked the end of the so-called ‘República Velha’ (Old Republic), which was established at the moment of the end of the Imperial reign. On 3 November 1930,Vargas was appointed head of the ‘Governo Provisório’ (interim government) until 1934, when he was elected president by the National Constitutional Assembly. In 1937, Vargas created the ‘República Nova’, the New Republic, and gained dictatorial powers. On 29 October 1945, a military coup by dissatisfied generals (some of them were ‘tenentes’ (lieutenants) who participated in the 1930 revolution) forced Vargas to step down.

Installation of José Linhares as President of Brazil.
The military coup that made an end to the presidency of Getúlio Vagas, created a power vacuum. Getúlio had no vice-president; according to the Brazilian Constitution, the President of the Supreme Federal Court (STF) was the next in order of succession. José Linhares (1886-1957) was the President of the STF, and therefore installed as the 15th president of Brazil, until the installation of president-elect Gaspar Dutra on 31 January 1946.
