    Local man leads letter carriers union
    December 22, 2007,

    By FRANK SOJAK, The Tribune-Democrat
    Cambria County is home to one of Pennsylvania’s major labor leaders, though most have ever heard of him.
    Joseph G. Antal of Ebensburg is prepared to start another year of serving the 17,000 letter carriers as head of the Pennsylvania State Letter Carriers Association.
    And 2008 will be busy for Antal.
    During that presidential-election year, Antal will be traveling the state, lobbying for presidential candidates and candidates running for other offices.
    The union says it supports candidates who will best serve working families.
    Issues such as outsourcing, the implementation of the next generation of automated equipment and conducting elections by mail also will keep him busy.
    The 67-year-old Antal delivered mail in Johnstown for 38 years, retiring in 2002.
    He took the association’s reins upon the death of its former president.
    Antal, who works out of offices in Philadelphia, Harrisburg and other large cities across the state, was elected to two-year terms in 2003, 2005 and 2007. His current term expires in September 2009.
    He had been serving as vice president of the state association before moving into the presidency.

    Monday's strike to cause delays in train, bus, air services
    Budapest, December 16 (MTI) - 2007,

    A nationwide strike initiated by the trade unions's umbrella organisation Liga to protest against the government's health-care and pension reforms is expected to cause delays in train, bus and air services on Monday.

    The management of Hungarian railways MAV failed to agree with trade union representatives on Sunday afternoon about the minimum services to be maintained during the strike starting at 0600 on Monday, the company said in a statement. As a result, delays and cancellations should be expected, and passengers should consult railway information services before travelling, the statement said.

    Deputy chair of the Free Trade Union of Railway Workers Balazs Barany told MTI that they are considering bringing forward the strike and starting it already at 2200 on Sunday.

    Volan long-distance bus companies will not participate in Monday's strike, except in Bekes County in southeast Hungary. Head of the Bekes County Traffic Trade Union Antal Hoffman said that around 200 bus drivers will join the strike early on Monday. They will resume services from 0730, but will consider continuing the strike in the afternoon, between 1600 and 1900, he added.

    Slight delays can be expected at Budapest's Ferihegy airport as a result of Monday's strike, spokesperson Domokos Szollar said. Two trade unions of airport workers said they would join the strike between 0700 and 0900 on Monday. A total of 37 services will be affected, but only slight delays should be expected, Domokos said.

    Unions said some 10,000 teachers would strike on Monday, as well as 15 hospitals, surgeries and GPs. Farmers will hold roadblock demonstrations at 40 places all over Hungary.

    Oahu factory takes Antal’s idea to market
    Vol. 12, Issue 351 - Monday, December 17, 2007,

    By Helen Altonn
    The commercial potential of a University of Hawaii researcher's method of making charcoal from green waste is "astronomical," says Michael J. Lurvey, president, chief executive officer and owner of Carbon Diversion Co.

    He established the company with a plant at Campbell Industrial Park after Michael J. Antal Jr., professor in the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, built a reactor at UH to develop flash carbonization technology.

    "We are more advanced because we took it to a commercial level," said Lurvey, whose company has one of three licenses to use Antal's technology for commercial purposes.

    "We formed an alliance where UH is an owner in our company, and we continue to do research and development with HNEI and with the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources as well as the College of Natural Resources," he said.

    "Our thing is to reduce waste streams going into the landfill, to produce power from processing and continue to advance the carbon," Lurvey said. "We make carbon and charcoal. Some of it is really good for horticulture and agriculture purposes, and we make excellent kiawe charcoal for barbecue."

    He added, "The growth potential on this is astronomical."

    Homeless champions, central Budapest mayor argue over ordinance - paper
    Budapest, December 14 (MTI) -,

    When the council of Budapest's District Five, the city centre, met to debate an ordinance banning begging, littering, smoking on playgrounds and throwing away cigarette butts, members of a homeless advocacy group "Man in the Street," were quick to respond with a small demonstration, Friday's national daily Nepszabadsag wrote.

    District Mayor Antal Rogan invited the demonstrators, led by Balint Misetics, to discuss the matter, and altered the ordinance to ban only aggressive begging and using children to beg. Misetics was dissatisfied, charging that the administration was mixing up high crime figures with homelessness and using the former as an excuse to persecute the latter. He cited a recent example, when eight police officers banded together to drive two homeless persons out from under a doorway.

    Rogan said the district was increasing its funding to help the homeless from eight million forints (about 32,000 euros) to 25 million (about 100,000 euros) and hoped to contract the Maltese Charities for practical help. But, he argued, the district wanted to protect its green space and playgrounds from all comers including dog-walkers who neglect to pick up after their animals and demonstrators who have in the past pitched tents in public places. He also called it duplicitous that there was a ban on forcing homeless people to leave public spaces but none on letting them freeze to death on the street.

    Misetics charged that the district's new law was unjustifiably limiting civil liberties and that the true reason for it was to "keep the destitute away from a section of the city lived in by the prosperous," wrote Nepszabadsag.

    Hundreds gather by candlelight
    Second annual stroll warmed hearts on a cold December night

    By Doug Draper, Niagara Falls, Dec 12, 2007,

    Elizabeth Antal and her four-year-old brother, Ty

    Seven-year-old Elizabeth Antal and her four-year-old brother, Ty, will be able to look back at last weekend's Candlelight Stroll in Niagara Falls and say they were among the first who attended this perennial Christmas event during its formative years.
    The two children were among hundreds who gathered on Queen Street in Niagara Falls' downtown on the weekend for the city's second annual Candlelight Stroll that drew Santa Claus, Father Christmas, groups of carollers, a steel drum band, bell ringers and others to warm the atmosphere on a chilly December night.
    "I thought it was a good idea to come here tonight to let (Elizabeth and Ty) know that there is more to Christmas than just getting gifts and to get them more involved in the community," said the Antal children's mother, Darlene.
    Niagara Falls Mayor Ted Salci opened the evening by pointing to the growing success of the event, which got started last year on a particularly cold and windy night that may have discouraged more people from attending its inaugural night.
    This time out, the temperatures were relatively warmer and some of those who braved last year's first stroll said the lighter winds made it was easier to keep their candles lit.
    Among those gathered at the Candelight Stroll were two judges for the Winter Lights Celebration, a national competition for cities and towns with the best Christmas light displays.
    Those judges were Bill Arbucke of Halifax, N.S., and Claude Lanchance of Quebec City, who were spending this past Saturday and Sunday in Niagara Falls surveying the lights in its public spaces and residential neighbourhoods for the awards.
    Neither judge would give a hint on where Niagara Falls may stand in a contest where it is ranking in the top-three for an award with two other Ontario communities - Stratford and Woodstock.
    Arbucke would only say "the cat will be let out of the bag" on which municipality is the winner at a special banquet being held in St. Johns, N.B., this coming Feb. 7.

    Whitnall, McLaren can't stop Tiwis' winning streak
    Mon Dec 10, 2007,

    Southern Districts held off a spirited Waraths to record a two goal win in the final match of round nine in the NTFL yesterday.
    The Crocs went in as favourites, but it was Warathas who held the lead at the first break. Antal Reti goaled on the half time siren to edge Districts in front, and the team built their lead in the second half on the back of goals to Steele Viti, who finished with four, and Clint Kelly.
    Round nine also saw the Tiwi Bombers winning streak continue, despite the efforts of two ex-AFL players.
    A week after his former captain made his debut for Palmerston, another old Blue - ruckman Dylan McLaren - pulled on the black and white guernsey.
    The Magpies led throughout the first half, helped by early goals to Lance Whitnall, as well as Peter Shepherd.
    But even with their high profile recruits, Palmerston were no match for the Bombers trademark come-from-behind style. The Magpies early lead was destroyed in the third quarter, with the Bombers going on the win 20.13 (133) to 16.11 (107).
    The match was marred by a violent crowd brawl which is being investigated by the AFLNT. Anyone found guilty of breaching the league's code of conduct could be suspended from attending games.
    Other round nine winners include the Buffaloes over Wanderers and St Marys who celebrated Daniel Flesfader 100th game with a crushing defeat of Nightcliff.

    Hungarian prodigy wins 3rd prize in Moscow Paganini competition
    Budapest, November 30 (MTI) - ,

    Hungarian prodigy violinist Antal Szalai has won third prize in the 5th Moscow International Paganini competition and, besides a Korean violinist, was the only non-Russian among 35 contestants to make it into the final.
    Hungary has a long-standing tradition of producing world-class violinists, and many of them, like Szalai, studied at the Ferenc Liszt Academy in Budapest.
    Szalai, 26, who is currently completing his studies at the Brussels Conservatoire, played the Bartok violin concerto to Yehudi Menuhin at the age of 15. He told MTI in Moscow late on Thursday after the final that he now realises how musically immature that performance was.
    Since then he has played in concert halls around the world, including the Carnegie Hall, and has recording contracts with BMC records and Hungarian label Hungaroton.

    New partners and new clients have come on board to support MessageLabs allowing the company to double its Sydney staff in the past few months reaching 30 people, added Routley.

    Earlier, MessageLabs announced that is had appointed Andrew Antal as country manager for A/NZ taking over the role from James Scollay, who will continue his role as vice president APAC with a focus on Japan. Antal joined MessageLabs in 2005 as marketing director.

    By: All Hungary News, 2007-11-19,

    The BKV (Budapest Transportation Company) made public their plans about changes for 2008 in terms of prices and services, containing the proposal that monthly passes would be abolished, and only 30-day passes could be bought.

    The BKV claims this may end the long lines at ticket offices that occur at the beginning of each month. Other proposals for 2008 include the abolition of less-frequently bought passes, and the introduction of time-based SMS passes and night time passes.

    Deputy Mayor Miklós Hagyó demanded BKV Zrt. chairman Attila Antal publish the documents regarding the plans for 2008, and to commence the necessary negotiations with consumer and professional organizations in Budapest districts.

    Our family favourite: Lucinda Antal
    Nov 15 2007 by Janet Tansley, Liverpool Echo,

    LUCINDA Antal has already treated us to a family favourite recipe but with a passion for cooking, she’s got more than one recipe she loves to do again and again.
    The 38-year-old, operations manager for the National Wildflower Centre in Liverpool for the last seven years, used to run a cookery school in London and has worked as a restaurant reviewer.
    She loves her new job: “Working for a charity means being a bit hands-on in many different roles.”
    But her fondness for food will never go away.
    Lucinda has five godchildren and a niece for whom she loves to cook and bake.
    And with wintry winds whipping up, what better than this delicious warming soup?
    Cream of watercress and rocket soup (Serves 6-8)
    Ingredients: 2 bunches of watercress (about 200g); 1 packet of rocket (about 100g) - if rocket not available, use spinach or more watercress; 1 large white onion; 2 tablespoons light olive oil or vegetable oil; 3 potatoes (about 500g); 2 litres vegetable or chicken stock; salt and pepper; 142ml double cream.Method: Chop stalks from watercress and set aside leaves. Finely chop onion. Put oil into a large pan and heat gently. Add onion. Cook over a moderate heat until onions begin to soften and become translucent.
    Add watercress stalks and stir well. Leave to cook for 4 minutes. Wash and roughly chop potatoes (no need to peel – keep the vitamins!).
    Add to watercress and onions and stir well. Cook for another 2 minutes. Add stock and bring to a gentle boil.
    Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Take off heat and allow to cool slightly. Add rocket and either liquidise or use a handheld blender to blend soup into a thick creamy liquid. Chop watercress leaves and add to soup. Stir well and add double cream. Add pepper and a little salt if liked. Serve with crusty bread and butter.
    If you prefer a smooth soup, blend the watercress leaves with the rocket. By adding the leaves at the end, you preserve the lovely green colour.

    Painting returned to heirs of noble Hungarian family
    By: Hungary Around the Clock, 2007-11-12,

    Court executor Ödön Szeyffert on Friday received a 17th-century painting of Johanna Ocskay from the National Museum and returned it to József Schell, a representative of the heirs of the Sigray legacy, after 55 years.
    Antal Sigray, a politician known for his anti-German stance between the wars, deposited some of the family assets in various museums before Hungary was occupied by German troops on March 19, 1944. He managed to deposit remaining family assets in five Hungarian museums in the early 1950s.
    A further 25 paintings owned by the Sigray family are still in the National Museum.

    Hungarian, Slovak FMs to meet in November
    Monday, 29 October 2007,

    Bratislava, October 29 (MTI) - Hungarian Foreign Minister Kinga Goncz will meet with her Slovak counterpart Jan Kubis in mid November, Kubis told a Slovak television news channel.

    Hungary's ambassador to Slovakia, Antal Heizer, confirmed the meeting, but said that Goncz's visit on November 16 would last only for few hours and would be to either the Slovak border town of Sturovo or Sahy.

    Relations between Hungary and Slovakia have been particularly strained since the Slovak parliament voted to re-affirm the Benes Decrees, a series of post-WWII decrees based on collective guilt, which deprived many ethnic Germans and Hungarians of their homes and property.

    This past weekend extreme nationalist groups held a commemoration of the massacre of a dozen ethnic Slovaks in Cernova by gendarmes in 1907, when the country was part of Hungary. Slovakia's president was chief patron of the event attended by its prime minister. Slovakia holds Hungary responsible for the shootings.

    First golf-club near Yalta city, Crimea

    The Crimean company "Antal-Crimea" has concluded a contract with the Italian corporation “Synthesis Engineering” to built the first Crimean golf-club, “Delos” (Ukraine). The club will occupy a picturesque territory at the Gurzuf Bay and will include an 18-hole colf court, a library, cigar lounge, fitness facilities, spa centre and vacation villas.
    Antal-Crimea selected American corporation Gary Player to design the court. Thanks to its convenient location, guests will enjoy great views over the Black Sea and the mountains. According to designer Frank Henegan, much attention will be paid to environment and natural vegetation.
    Construction works will start in the 4th quarter of this year and will finish in 2009. Taking into consideration the location of the club near Yalta city, on the southern coast of Crimea, the resort will be popular with golfers.

    The Lethal Twilight
    Wednesday, 17 October 2007,

    It is not normal for a story that concerns itself mainly with death and suicide to be humorous but in the novels of Antal Szerb the abnormal is, well, normal.

    Szerb was born in Hungary l901, into a family of Jewish descent, although practising Catholics. An intellectual, respected as a writer, historian and playwright, he was published during his life on Ibsen, Blake, and histories of English and World Literatures. After the German occupation of Hungary in 1944 Szerb was considered a Jew under the anti-Jewish laws prevalent in Hungary in the early 1940s, and sacked from his job as a teacher. He was recruited to a forced labour camp and died in such a camp, at Balf, in 1945 just as the war was ending.

    But there is nothing of the awful difficulties of his own life in his two novels, The Pendragon Legend and Journey by Moonlight.

    What a Great Day IT was
    Wednesday, October 10, 2007,

    What a great day for a ball game, warm sun and clear skies. Dufur has a good contingent of fans. The teams are warming up and you can feel the anticipation in the air. PC's field is cut medium long so infield hits and bunts won't have much carry. The backstop is very close to home plate so there will be no pass ball action for runs scored from third and no fouls caught by the catcher behind home plate otherwise the field looks great.

    PC is starting their ace Charlie Antal. A good fast ball and curve are his main weapons. I want to say that Dufur is starting Jason Reed, but since I'm just working from memory I could be wrong. But he has a great fast ball and a slow curve as a changeup. I'm not going to remember the Dufur player's names so I'll just describe the action as best as I can remember. Disregarding the fact that my entire pitching carreer at PC netted me one win, I still have the autographed ball, those were the lean years. Here's my report.

    Dufur bats first and Antal clunks two batters with hanging curves. Looks like the old curve hasn't warmed up yet. Dufur works it for a run and takes the early lead 1-0. PC responds with two in the bottom of the first and takes the lead 2-1. Dufur up. Puts a man on first. A Hard shot to right field. Dufur's running. PC's right fielder throws a long perfect strike to third for the out. What a big play. Probably saved a run. PC closes out the inning. PC up, men on first and second with two out. Its double steal, they've got the runner cold at third, no, it gets away. Run PC. That hurts. PC 3-1. Dufur up, nothing. PC again. Reed is pitching a strong game. PC is running the bases very aggressively. Another Dufur error and PC scratches out another run. PC 4-1. Top of 6th. Time is running out. Dufur gets a runner on with one out. Antal walks two straight. Bases loaded. Right now is the time for Dufur to make its move. A hard shot to short. Over to second for one, safe at first. 4-2 PC. Antal strikes out the next batter and the inning is saved. Bottom of 6. Two out PC loads the bases on a walk. Dufur can't afford to give up a run here. Reed fires in two balls, a strike, a strike and a swinging strike three. What a gritty performance. Okay, top of 7, last chance Dufur. Antal was looking shaky in the 6th and PC had ace reliever and submariner, Jesse Severson, warming up. First batter up. It's a walk. That's all for Antal, in comes Severson. Dufur is right where they want to be. One on, nobody out and the top of the order coming up. Those two scratch runs are looking pretty big right now. The rally caps are on the and the fans are showing support. Severson is a true submariner. He's coming in low and sidearm every pitch. From behind the backstop it looks like he throwing a straight fast ball, if you can call 70mph a fast ball. He has the submariners upwards curve and he looks to be throwing what I used to call a screw ball where the fast ball turns over and breaks back towards a right hand batter. That's a pretty big change from the over hand heat and drop down curve Antal was throwing. Let's see if Dufur 's top three can make a quick adjustment. PC gets an out, the runner advances. PC gets another out. It's down to the last batter. It's a sharp shot to the infield, PC makes the long throw. Out by half a step. Game over. This was a great game. The two teams battled, made the plays when they had to and PC scratched out a very tough win over a very gritty Dufur team. This was 2a ball at its best. Good luck PC and congratulations Dufur and your fans.

    Mayor of Budapest district returns to parking battle
    By: Hungary Around the Clock

    Fifth District mayor Antal Rogán announced Monday that a grace period has ended and from now on drivers who park their car free of charge in the Health Ministry car park will be fined. Just to show he meant business, meter men distributed red parking tickets to waiting cars before the press briefing.
    Rogán, of Fidesz, referred to a Monday prosecutor's office ruling that the area belongs to the district and that the local council is entitled to demand fees for its use, although not retroactively. "If fees are collected from ordinary people retroactively, why should a ministry be an exception?" Rogán asked.

    Nicholas Lezard's paperback choice
    A classic feel-good fable
    Antal Szerb's novel Oliver VII is constructed out of pure joy, says Nicholas Lezard

    Saturday September 29, 2007,

    Oliver VII
    by Antal Szerb, translated by Len Rix
    (Pushkin Press, £7.99)
    Is it possible to construct a novel out of pure joy? To construct a Shakespearean idyll when Europe is being overrun by Nazis, and the writer, personally, is in great danger? Perhaps when put like that, it makes it all the more necessary and urgent to create such a fantasy. But you'd imagine that it wouldn't be the easiest of tasks, not at the best of times. There is a strong danger - one would have thought an inescapable one - of falling into insipidity.

    Barlow hopes to remain healthy
    Sep 6, 2007,

    by ROCCO PAUL VALLUZZO, Pilot Sports Editor
    Aside from how many points it scores or surrenders, something else that happens on the court could play a big part in the success of the Joel Barlow High girls varsity volleyball team in the 2007 season.
    But it is something the Falcons hope to avoid if at all possible. If they can accomplish it all the pieces should fall into place for them.
    “Hopefully, we can stay healthy,” said seventh-year head coach Steve Antal, whose team has been fortunate since practice started nearly two weeks ago. “We had a big injury bug last year.”
    The Falcons have a few factors in their favor as they prepare to start the season. One is turnout.
    They had to make a few cuts to get to 26 players for the program. Antal will keep about 12 on the varsity, which will consist mostly of upperclassmen.
    Among those numbers the Falcons have much experience. It should not take long to get ready for their first match of the season on Tuesday at home against Gilbert of Winstead.
    Several of those players helped Barlow last season as it qualified for the South-West Conference, eventually losing to Newtown in the quarterfinals. Moving up a level in the state tournament, it was seeded 12th in Class L but lost to Maloney of Meriden in the first round to finish the season at 11-8.
    The Falcons lost only three players from that team to graduation: former captains Kelly O’Donnell, Jess Kozloff and Devon Savard, all starters. O’Donnell was an outside and middle hitter while Kozloff was a defensive specialist. O’Donnell was used as a utility player.
    On the positive side, the Falcons will have an experienced senior class, which will include captains Jenn Shinall, Kristin Hanczor and Liz Soltesz. An All-SWC selection, Shinall will start at setter again. Hanczor was named to the All-State and All-SWC second teams last year and will be a middle hitter. Soltesz, an All-SWC honorable mention, will be an outside hitter.
    Classmate Jacqueline Shinall, an All-SWC honorable mention last year, may be used as an outside hitter or on defense, according to Antal. Also back from the senior class are defensive specialist Emily Neugold, Christina Yeotsas and Adeline Duchala.
    Juniors include Ouriana Bletsas and Rachel Caruso, who will also see varsity time. Up from the JV team are Emily Fiore and Katie Starkey.
    The Falcons also have Caity Van Camp, a sophomore would could be used at the varsity level.
    A couple of pre-season scrimmages have given the Falcons the opportunity to make some adjustments before their first match. Once these are done they may set their sights on qualifying for the league and state tournaments again.
    “We’re a pretty competitive group,” said Antal. “We have a group this year that’ll work hard to have a successful season.”

    Ollie Burton
    OLLIE first arrived on the scene after starring against us in an FA Cup tie for Norwich on a day when they beat us 5-0, so it’s no surprise Joe Harvey wanted him.

    Burton played alongside me at centre-half in the Fairs Cup final in 1969 when we beat a highly-skilled Ujpest Dozsa side over two legs. They boasted a forward by the name of Antal Dunai – who ran the great Eusebio extremely close to winning the European Golden Boot – so I have fond memories of playing alongside Ollie.

    A disappointing end to a disappointing summer
    Mark Bolland, ES Magazine 03.09.07,

    Certain dates imprint themselves indelibly on the public psyche. Rotting bins and rationed power made 1979 the Winter of Discontent, while 1997 will forever be The Year Diana Died. 2007, I suspect, is another destined never to be forgotten, but not because of events that have changed our life or our way of looking at it. Unfortunately it has come to symbolise six months that will occupy a grey and rain-lashed space in our collective memory: we shall call it the Summer of Disappointment. . . .

    The king is dead, long live the Republic!
    Laszlo Lengyel: Beyond Gyurcsany and Orban

    2007, augusztus 14,

    The leader of Left Hungary, Ferenc Gyurcsany, and Right Hungary, Viktor Orban, are political corpses. Hungary is a republic. Hungary has no owner.
    . . .
    On the right, the post-Orban era began in the local authorities. The dying king can launch his expensive and pointless referenda, sitting isolated in his palace, talking in his archaic tongue. But it's the mayors sitting at the table of power, talking the language of local authorities. Their voters, cities, and development plans are proof of their relevance. Zoltan Pokorni, Lajos Kosa, Antal Rogan and their companions are working to prove that they are ready to serve in government. If they can run a big city well, working together with voters of all stripes, running institutions and building coalitions, negotiating with foreign and domestic companies, then they can surely do the same on a national level. If they play in a team, working together and reaching compromises with the opposition, if they can compete without killing each other - then they have a chance. If they fight, attacking their left-wing constituents, handing out corrupt cash bungs, then they will fail.

    Orban is not giving in without a struggle. There will be articles in Magyar Nemzet about women's affairs and former security service agents. But Pokorni has gone through this and survived. After Orban's monarchy comes a republic. Zoltan Pokorni could be the leader. Jozsef Szajer can deal with foreign affairs - he has better connections nowadays than Orban himself. Instead of the revolting Mikola, a credible and honest man like Gabor Zombor could take charge of health. And however strange it sounds, Mihaly Varga could cede his economics post to Antal Rogan, who started as a very talented economist and is now proving his abilities as mayor of the fifth district of Budapest. You say they are not popular figures like Orban? But what did he achieve in 2002 against Medgyessy and in 2006 against Gyurcsany? Fidesz's peace wing learned from the electoral defeats. Orban has learned nothing and is forgetting nothing.

    US agrees new safety zone around Budapest embassy

    By: Hungary Around the Clock
    US ambassador April H. Foley and Fifth District Fidesz mayor Antal Rogán signed an agreement Monday on the use of the public area around the embassy. The US will pay $1.8 million to the local council over 50 years, but will be free to shape the embassy’s security zone in accordance with its needs. In exchange, local residents will regain access to part of Perczel Mór utca on the north side of the building and Kiss Ernõ utca on its south side.

    The US will return other buildings to the Hungarian state under a separate agreement with the Foreign Ministry. Most notably, the US will give back the Táncsics prison building complex in Buda Castle, as promised by President George W. Bush during his visit to Budapest last year.

    In addition, the multi-storey apartment building between Parliament and the MPs building on the Széchenyi rakpart, known as the “diplomats house,” and a 12th District villa will also be returned, Népszabadság writes. The US will obtain a Treasury-owned building near the embassy on Szabadság tér.

    Foreign Ministry state secretary Márta Fekszi Horváth said the agreement will be finalised in a matter of weeks. The contract may be extended for another 50 years upon expiry.

    Better Money
    Friday, August 10, 2007,

    The trademarked slogan "Better Money" is displayed on the homepage of the e-gold site. As best I recall, I came up with that one myself. In making this claim my intent was (and is) to stimulate thinking and discourse along the lines of "In what way(s) can one brand of money be better than another?"
    Thinking back, the logic for what I'm going to say next derived from an essay I read in '97 or '98 by Antal Fekete. I just now tracked it down again and it is still online. I haven't re-read it again in detail so I don't want to imply I agree with everything it says though on a quick scan it still looks pretty worthwhile.
    Fekete described money as "a transmitter of value through space and time…with the least possible loss". Transmission of value through time correlates to money's role as a store of value. Transmission through space is a reference to money's usefulness as a medium of indirect exchange, that is, a means of effecting payment. It looks to me like he meant or was emphasizing physical space, distance.
    I prefer to think of the space part as transaction space, where value is conveyed from a payer to the recipient of payment, a change of ownership or entitlement.

    Antal - horrible experiences
    Mon Aug 6 22:44:08 CEST 2007,

    This time my experience is fresh and horrible. We went after work for some beers to restaurace Antal. Service was really slow and we waited long time till we could order our five beers. When they arrived, there were quite empty to call them half liter of beer.
    No matter what we drunk them and ordered another one, this time asking for full beer. Well it didn't arrive and our complain followed. Waiter seemed to be surprised that guest dares to complain and looked very angry. However after some minutes we got full beer. All of us agreed that it was filled with water. This time we found phone number to owner and called there. Owner was at the bar and ensured us, that there was no water in our beers.
    We still resisted as we had ordered food. For most of us it arrived, only my colleague didn't get his one. But after several urgencies, it arrived and by accident he had some paper in it.
    However we were still strong and resisted and ordered another beer. This time it seemed to be okay. Last surprise came when we payed as waiter calculated somehow two more beers than we have.
    Simply avoid this place if you can. Looking at other experiences (in Czech only), we're not alone who has such feeling about this pub.

    Director: Nimrod Antal
    Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Luke Wilson, Frank Whaley, Ethan Embry
    It was Hitchcock who best understood the inherent creepiness of a remote motel run by one solitary psycho.

    And there’s been a trade-off involved in choosing this kind of setting ever since. Directors do always run the risk of having their work compared to his usually vastly superior films.

    Nimrod Antal, the Hungarian director of cult thriller, Kontroll may have seemed a worthy challenger, but alas, the results don’t quite bear that out. But his Vacancy does have enough scares and thrills to warrant a trip to the theatre.

    Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale play an unhappily married couple whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and are forced to spend the night in the less-than hospitable Frank Whaley. They then discover the low- budget slasher flicks they’re watching on TV are real-life snuff movies filmed in the motel.

    Newspaper Real Estate Ads Falling In Favor Of Online
    July 30, 2007,

    Ed Sutherland - AHN News Writer
    New York, NY (AHN) - Real estate could be the next advertising niche shifting from newspapers to online, reports said Monday. The Internet will have 60 percent of real estate ads by 2011, according to an estimate cited by Bloomberg News.

    Real estate ads bring newspapers $5.16 billion, 30 percent of all classified newspaper ad revenue.

    According to the AP, as much as 20 percent of real estate ads are now online, a trend on track to match the 30 percent of help-wanted classified advertising advertising already lost to the Internet.

    In the first-quarter of 2007, real estate firms cut newspaper advertising 14 percent -- and even more during the second quarter, according to Bloomberg.

    A Prudential Real Estate spokeswoman summed up the future of newspaper advertising. "Is newspaper a high priority? No. I don't believe my buyers and sellers are going to be in that market," Suzy Antal, of Prudential Real Estate Affiliates, told the AP.
