|+ - ||Hungarian "espersso" maker (mind)
I have a question about my "espresso" maker (I don't know how to call
it. It's not a machine but a stainless chamber which bears high
pressure and a porcelain pot on top of the chamber which cathes the
coffee). I bought it in Hungary with about $15 US. It worked fine for a
month, but now it do not hold pressure and vapor leaks from the chamber.
There is a hole on chamber and it is like a hole for screw. I suspect
that something was pluged in there but I lost it. But I am not sure. I
also find small pieces of metal (about 2mm diameter, rondom shape) with
the set when I bought it. I have no idea why they are with it.
Could somebody help me start drinking coffee again with the coffee maker?

Sorry, Wally, but I meant *REAL* independence from England. Even if
formally independent, Canada follows UK as if it was still a colony.
When England goes to war, so goes Canada, even if Canada was not
attacked and has no vital interest to do so. True, in the two world
wars the US did so, too, but not so immediately as Canada. And at least
in WW II, the US joined the war only after Pearl Harbor. (US
participation in WW I is another story ...).

Getting the experience of a "real McCoy" is also worth something for the
military. Besides, the oil sheiks paid for the trouble.

After the same Canadians and US brought the conditions about with their
unwarranted participation in WW I.

Thanks, Wally, but I'm afraid there are some other books ahead of the

But isn't that the indication of an irresponsible person? ;-)

Oh, this was just intended to counter that often heard excuse for
denying us the vote on the ground that we are too far removed from
Hungarian affairs to be able to vote intelligently.
So I'd be willing to match my familiarity with Hungarian affairs with
that of Hungarian resident voters. How else to do it, unless through
some test (quiz)?

Hungary confirms Olympic swim scam
BUDAPEST, Hungary - Half of Hungary's swimming team, which won six
Olympic medals, qualified for the Atlanta Games on the
basis of fictitious times from a meet that was never held.
Government officials Tuesday confirmed newspaper reports of the scam and
blamed the Hungarian Swimming Federation for
submitting the fraudulent records.
"Fraud is fraud, and this was fraud," said Rezsoe Gallov, who heads the
government's national gymnastics and sports office. "We
and the Hungarian Olympic Committee oppose any such practice."
Gallov said 11 of the 22-member Hungarian team had not met Olympic
qualification times at national and regional meets. So a
phantom meet was held and imaginary times were entered. Two swimmers were
even disqualified for the sake of authenticity.
"These swimmers were all capable of meeting the Olympic requirements,"
Gallov said. "The trouble was that the federation leaders
were too lazy to keep proper records. "This meet should've been held, or
at least a training session should have been called a
competition to meet the administrative requirements."
MTI, the state-owned news agency, said Tuesday that federation head Tamas
Gyarfas had resigned because of the scandal.
The Hungarian federation submitted the false records from the phantom
competition on June 6-8 to FINA, swimming's international
ruling body, which compiled the world ranking list on the basis of which
Olympic competitors were selected.
Listed as participants at the phony meet were Attila Czene, Tamas Deutsch
and Attila Zubor, among the country's best swimmers.
Czene was part of the gold-winning team that took the 200-meter medley.
The Hungarian federation's general secretary, Jozsef Ruza, refused to
resign. He told state television Monday the international swim
federation had been aware of the fraud.
But federation head Cornel Marculescu denied his organization knew or
approved the scam.
"We don't have police around the world to check up on national
committees," he said by phone from Lausanne, Switzerland.
The Hungarian swim team was among the most successful in any discipline
at Atlanta with its six medals, three of them gold.
Gallov, the Hungarian official, said those involved had to be called to
account but no medals won at Atlanta were in jeopardy. But
Marculescu said the IOC might be called on to decide what, if any,
penalties to apply.

Azoknak, akik kerdore vonjak Theodor von Karman magyarsagat, szeretnem
emlekezetukbe hozni a Newsweek egykori cikket, ami teljesen orola szolt,
beleertve az o ma mar vilagszerte ismert jellemzeset a magyarokrol: egy
magyar az, aki elore enged teged a forgoajtonal, s mire beersz, o mar bent
van. Amikor a reporter megkerdezte tole, hogy miert olyan kivaloak a
magyarok? Azt felelte, hogy "azert, mert mi a Marsbol jottunk".
Szerencsemnek mondhatom, hogy en talalkozhattam vele 1956 decembereben,
Parizsban. Felesegem nagynenje, egy amerikai allampolgar, aki az
International Rescue Committee munkatarsa volt Berlinben, majd az
osztrak-magyar hatarnal, (egy oldal rola szol "A Bridge at Andau" cimu
konyvben), mutatott be neki, egy elokelo szallodaban, ahol o megszallt. Ket
es fel orat beszeltetett engem a forradalomrol, minden reszlet erdekelte.
Bar ekkor mar 25 eve volt az USA-ban, tokeletesen beszelt magyarul, az
angol, francia, nemet es meg mas nyelvek mellett. Amerikai titkara, akinek
doktoratusa volt fizikabol, diszkreten magunkra hagyott bennunket.
Beszelgetesunk kozben, egyszercsak kihuzott az agya alol egy utott-kopott
kis borondot, amibol szalonnat, hagymat es kenyeret vett elo, s kinalt meg
engem es nejemet, miutan maganak is szelt azokbol a bicskaja-
Mi az, hogy nem volt magyar?!...
Bar en kanadai allampolgar vagyok es itt lakom British Columbiaban,
harminc harom evig nem mehettem haza, mert a fekete listan voltam. Most ki
meri azt mondani, hogy en mar nem vagyok magyar?
Karman is magyar maradt, amig elt, s csak oregbbitette a magyarok
hirnevet a vilagban.
