Eventuality: designing real-time events presents projects developed by Marcus Bastos aiming to explore new formats of filming and editing, as a result of real-time technologies and their effects on audiovisual cultures. Design aspects will be highlighted, and contextualized by a broader discussion about concepts such as event, constructed situation, heterotopy, and others that describe momentarily occurences capable of shifting the functioning of an established system (be it a narrative, an algorithmic procedure, a form of ocuppying a stage or a specific region of a city). © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.

This article is intended as a contribution to the study of the everyday experiences of immigrants in the city of São Paulo in the period between 1870 and 1945. The analysis will seek to recover the web of relationships in their everyday dimension of experience in business and labor, recovering the activities of production and marketing of bread, watching the fabric of connections and tensions that have established between owners and workers in bakeries in most of Portuguese's origin. Focusing the documentation DEO PS (State Department of Political and Social Order) of, particularly the charts, it recovers confrontations, forms of resistance, struggle and strikes in the bakery industry.

This paper explores some changes in the eating habits of people who lived in the city of São Paulo between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. New restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries were created along with renewed hygiene requirements for the production and sale of food. At the same time habits at the table during meals were modified according to male and female differences and taste. Since that period there was on the one hand, the invention of a gastronomic style, very typical of São Paulo's citizens, although it may be referred mainly to the elite or rich classes. On the other hand, the development of a peculiar taste for food occurred at the same time that diets to lose weight became increasingly popular together with a higher control over body weight.

The text seeks to make some links between the way the formation of dreams is to Freudian psychoanalysis and the way of working with film takes in the vision of Walter Benjamin. The rapprochement between dreams and movies in the authors mentioned aims to examine how subjectivity is constituted in modernity, pointing both to issues of psychic life of individuals but also to an historical and political vision.

This paper deals with the space robotics and associate space applications. An overview of the space era and the robotic space probes is presented to contextualize the space robotics in the space exploration scenario. Concepts, classification and key-questions associated with robotics for space applications are presented and discussed. Safety-critical aspects of the space robotics are discussed as well the human limitation to operate in the hostile space environment and long time duration missions. The paper also focuses on the state-of-the- art of robotics for the International Space Station EVA operations, for the planetary exploration such as the ongoing Mars exploration, Hayabusa rendezvous and landing in asteroids and the robotic probe Rosetta landed in a comet recently. The paper also includes a discussion of the applications of new concepts like the robonauts, the space tugs applications and robots for future planetary exploration. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
