Well, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough but this is not what I was looking for.

I've read this MANY times when I needed to create a TIME column and I
have to say; it's not written for newbies :)

What I actually need to know is the postgre (or SQL) alternative to AS
used in mysql.
My query (below) is accepted by postgre until AS where it stops (^)

ERROR:  syntax error at or near "AS"

Thank's for your effort,
