Algarve Travel Tour Guide Presents:  Culture of Algarve, Portugal. Religious and Gastronomy Festivals of Algarve Information and Photos

Once again, Algarve travel to Querença in one more Saussages Festival (Festa das Chouriças de Querença).

In order to comply with tradition, the Parish of Querença, in conjunction with the Festival committee of the parish, once again organized the Festival of Chouriças Querença, also known as the Feast of St. Louis, the patron saint of animals.

Traditional Gastronomy of the Algarve in Querença Church Square.

This year, the traditional festival of Chouriças in honor of St. Louis (São Luís) will take place in the newly renovated Querença Church Square, January 25, jointly organized by the Festival committee of the Parish and the Parish of Querença with support of the House of the People of Querença Mnicipal and the House of Loulé.

It is recalled that the Church Square Querença has undergone rehabilitation works under the program for the revitalization of villages in the Algarve, having won a new image with new entertainment venues and leisure.

The party starts at 11 am, when visitors are greeted in the traditional village with traditional food, along with homemade bread and homemade wine produced in the parish of Querença, by the Algarve  traditional method.

In the early afternoon at 14:30 hours, religious celebrations begin with the Celebratin in the Church which is followed by a procession with the image of San Luis (São Luís). The procession makes the connection between the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption (Nossa Senhora da Assunção) and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Foot of the Cross (Nossa Senhora do Pé da Cruz), covering the main streets of the village.

The highest point of the festival takes place in the Church Square, with the usual sausage and other offers knock down. The sausages that the population offers to St. Louis (São Luís) are used on a "buffet" organized by the Festival committee and the surpluses are auctioned in conjunction with other offers.

Auction ends around 18:30 hours, immediately giving way to a fireworks-fireworks.

This year, the entertainment program of the Feast of Chouriças Querença are coupled with the realization of a photographic exhibition of street and a theater.

The photographic exhibition is devoted to a century-old tradition of the Algarve countryside, with the theme "The killing of the Pig: A well-known and famous tradition of the Algarve mountains."

At 21 hours operates the Culture House of Loulé Theatre Group (Grupo de Teatro Casa da Cultura de Loulé), with the number "Euro Festival Cançanita Louletana in the Reception Hall of the People's House Querença.

Magniwork Energy internet scam

Internet fraudsters are raking in thousands of dollars a day with an elaborate scam selling magnetic perpetual motion machines that are claimed to produce infinite free energy.

Since spring this year an operation called Magniwork has been selling a $50 DIY guide to building a perpetual motion device at home. On their web-site the fraudsters claim the materials are available in any local hardware store for less than $100. One estimate puts sales of the guide as high as 5,000 copies a month, making the scam worth up to $3m a year.

The claims for Magniwork are advanced via an extensive Google advertising campaign, and a network of blogs, web-sites and reviews endorsing the product. They are given further credibility by a clip of film from Sky News Australia about plans for a similar product made by a legitimate if optimistic research company called Lutec. Lutec patented its technology in 19 countries in 1999, but the product has still not seen the light of day. Off-Grid has discovered that the clip is over 8 years old.

Perpetual motion machine

Magniwork which describes its product as ‘a magnetic power generator’ claims to have invented a revolutionary off-grid power source that uses magnets to “power itself and create energy by itself, without requiring solar energy, heat, water, coal or any kind of resource.” The web-site promises the device will generate perpetual energy which will “fully power your home for free.”

However even the idea of such a device is dismissed by trained physicists. “The little explanation they give on their website makes no sense to me,” said Gunnar Pruessner, a lecturer in physics at Imperial College London. “For starters it breaks with all we know about quantum physics since Dirac, which says that we cannot tap into zero point fluctuations or virtual particles.”

Priceless IP

He observed that if the claims were true, they would mark the biggest advance in science ever. “It would bring a world-wide socio-economic revolution with incalculable political consequences. So you have to ask why are they scuzzing around selling their priceless IP (intellectual property) for a few dollars?”

Made in Macedonia

The site gives no way of contacting Magniwork -other than to order the guide. But its legal disclaimer reveals that despite the .com web address which suggests a US-based company, Magniwork is in fact located in Macedonia, a tiny republic on the northern border of Greece in Europe. “This Agreement shall all be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Macedonia applicable to agreements made and to be performed in Macedonia,” it reads. It has similarly proved difficult to identify the individuals behind the scheme. But one researcher claims to have written to the site’s web-master who referred in his reply to a man simply called “Igor”, the manual’s publisher.

Kernel of truth

Angry customers admit that the guide does contain kernels of truth. “Some of the suggestions in the e-book can reduce your home power consumption. For example, checking for air leaks, have better home insulation, servicing your air-conditioning unit or heate etc,”wrote one. But is it essentially amateurish and misleading, they say. “The whole “document” is 57 pages long and looks like something a kid in high school put together. The final “generator” is basically a magnet that is 2″ high sitting on a turntable that is 4″ high! They claim that its output is 24.5 Watts! That is 1/100th of what my house uses when the AC is on. It wouldn’t put out enough power to light up a standard light bulb,“ wrote another angry blogger. Fraudulent

Alternative energy expert Sterling D. Allan founder of The New Energy Congress has examined Magniwork’s claims. “Most of the 50+ page manual contains energy conservation tips that are based on well-established principles,” he said. But he points out that plans for the device are freely available elsewhere, they are based on other people’s work and he claims to have tried to contact people offering testimonials, without success. “The wording on their site still gives the reader the idea that the plans will result in a working free energy device but that is not the case. Such representation is fraud,” he concluded.

Although highly implausible, the idea of somehow harvesting magnetic power has intrigued scientists for over a century. It was first suggested by pioneering physicist Nicola Tesla in the nineteenth century. Australian company Lutec is still trying to perfect such a device. And U.S based based Magnetic Power Inc, headed by Mark Goldes, has claimed to be on the verge of launching a ‘Magnetic Power Module’ for at least six years. There is no suggestion that either Lutec or MPI are part of the scam.
