Presidential state car[edit]

Hello. Regarding the reference you added, the reason I removed it was because when I went to the link you provided, it redirected to a "best of YouTube" video site that didn't seem to have anything to do with the car or its fuel consumption. I certainly agree that the fuel consumption is important and that it should be referenced. Do you know of any other reliable sites that have that information and could be used as a reference? Thanks, BMRR (talk) 16:32, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Actually I saw many sources referring that the car consumption is 8 miles per gallon, but I couldn't find it on a completely reliable source like a prestigious newspaper or article. I'll try to find it and then I will add it later. Thank you very much. João Pimentel Ferreira 12:37, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Hi BMRR, may you kindly tell me if you consider the following sources as reliable. I've done a deep and wide search throughout the cyberspace to try to find out the presidential car fuel consumption and the only sites I found were the following ones. Nothing on CNN nor on nytimes.com

Caravela[edit]

Olá João,

A caravela não é uma invenção portuguesa, já existia quando começou a ser utilizada nas navegações de exploração, cerca de 1440/50. Talvez o astrolábio náutico o seja, uma vez que resulta da simplificação do astrolábio astronómico, mas não existem fontes coevas que no-lo provem. Saudações de Lisboa, Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:47, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Bem, não sei quais as suas fontes, porque não as menciona. TODAS AS FONTES que tenho dizem que a caravela foi criada pelos portugueses. Aliás, o próprio termo 'caravela' é criação portuguesa. Ora vede:
  • The origin of the word caravel itself is as uncertain as the origin of the vessel. Historians assume that the Portuguese developed the early versions of these ships, presumably combining features of the sturdy trading ships of northern Europe with the Mediterranean fishing and coastal trading ships with lateen sails and a narrower hull. As mariners returned from their explorations down the western coast of Africa, shipwrights modified the ships until they arrived at the basic caravel design. in: [1]
  • A Caravela portuguesa deriva da longa tradição árabe das embarcações pesqueiras do sul do país (Algarve). O primeiro documento conhecido onde aparece a palavra caravela é o foral de Vila Nova de Gaia, concedido em 1255 por Afonso III. O aperfeiçoamento deste tipo de embarcação resultou num novo e versátil tipo de navio, que proporcionou viagens mais rápidas a longa distância. No início do séc. XV começa a ser utilizada nas viagens marítimas dos Descobrimentos portugueses, sobretudo ao longo da costa africana. Eram navios ligeiros, rápidos, capazes de navegar em todas as águas e com todos os ventos. As suas velas triangulares, vela latina, permitiam-lhes bolinar, isto é, navegar com ventos contrários. in: [2]. João Pimentel Ferreira 14:40, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
