Am I eligible to apply for Portugal citizenship?

I was surprised to learn that some EU countries will allow applications for citizenship based on decent for grandchildren and sometimes great-grandchildren of citizens. I'm having trouble tracking down whether this is the case in Portugal (and whether I would be eligible). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Travel dates in the months before passport expiration

My U.S. passport expires 13 Oct 08 and I need to book one international trip before then: leaving New York 17 July 08, returning 2 Aug 08 (one destination country, a non-EU-member in Eastern Europe, plus stops for flight transfers in one or two EU member countries). Is it even worth researching various countries' and airlines' how-close-to-expiration-date safety ranges for travel, or should I just assume I MUST renew my passport before then?

Working in Europe

How difficult would it be for a nineteen year old with one year of college, moderate work experience, a TEFL certificate and little to no European language ability to get a temporary work visa in the EU? I'm thinking Germany, specifically. I've checked out this thread, but that seems to pertain mostly to becomig a citizen. I'm not looking to become naturalized or anything (though that would be nice), just find a menial job to support myself for six months or less. Note: I'm willing to accept "impossible" as an answer.

How can I get a bottle of German liqueuer in America?

There's a wonderful liqueur that I'd like to buy as a gift, but it's only available from a distillery in Germany. I contacted the distillery, and with my somewhat limited German, was able to ask about shipment to the US. They can ship it, but don't accept payment via credit card, but rather "mit Rechnung." This I believe to be "by check," but I'm not sure. Has anyone had experience with this kind of transaction? Some German sites I saw which also require that kind of payment have forms that ask for a password. Is this an EU thing only?

What are the differences between Eufor peacekeepers and NATO's?

From the BBC:
"EU force starts Bosnian mission"


"A ceremony in Bosnia-Hercegovina has marked the start of the European Union's largest-ever peacekeeping mission as it takes over from Nato.

A ceremony in Bosnia-Hercegovina has marked the start of the European Union's largest-ever peacekeeping mission as it takes over from Nato.

About 7,000 Eufor troops will be deployed across the country to maintain peace and stability, nine years after the Bosnian war ended.

Nato will keep a small base to deal with issues including military reform and tracking down war criminals." [end quote]

So what are the differences between Eufor peacekeepers and NATO's? Like, how are their respective forces raised, maintained, and commanded? How does either differ from UN peacekeepers? How is it decided which of these bodies of armed persons will become peacekeepers in any particular place? And where would I look for more info and/or what search terms would I throw at a search engine?

I'm an American in Germany. I lost my passport, and I need to travel to the Netherlands. Will I be able to?

[EU-Filter] I'm an American currently studying in Germany. I'm planning to travel to the Netherlands soon; unfortunately, I had to give out my passport to start the student-visa process. I've managed to lose the copies I made. I'm travelling by train. Will not having a passport be a huge problem? I've heard yes, I've heard no - so I'm turning to the Green for the answer.

Homework Help

[HomeworkFilter, I guess...] Ok... I have a problem. Quite a big problem, in fact.

I was just told by my university that the exam format for a course I'm taking, "Political image management" (don't look at me - it's a compulsory course, if I had a choice I wouldn't be taking it), has changed. Now, rather than taking an exam based on the material we studied, we have to write an essay.
This essay will be worth 80% of the final grade, and the actual exam, worth the other 20%, will be based on the essay itself. The essay subject is: "An examination of the impact of the proposal European Constitution on the political image management of Europe". And I have a week to do it. And I cannot afford to fail this exam.

The problem is that I don't know anything about the subject of the essay. I can't reach the professor to ask for explanations or help, and everybody else who's taking the course is as clueless as I am.

I'm not asking you to write the essay for me - just, can you help me find some material I can look at to get an idea of the subject? My tiny, tiny local library has nothing of worth, Google didn't help much at all... if you could find some online material for me I'd very much appreciate it.

Help?
