Doctor Poo?

Maybe, once. :-) The PhD thesis is a bit more further, but absolutorium is the goal till June.

All my exams are done. Request for PhD absolutorium issued last week.

Request discussed and accepted on Monday by the Doctoral Committee of the Faculty. PhD absolutorium achieved.

Nice and eventful summer!

For me nothing major this year, we are in the process of buying a house, so we spare as much as we can :) No holidays planned next year either for the same reason.

Jun 3 - returning to Shanghai for a business trip, revisiting some of my favorite places
Jul 1 - family day trip to Balatonfüred with an excellent meal at Baricska Csárda
Aug 20 - biking trip in the Karancs mountains near Salgótarján - wonderful, for me formerly unknown part of the country.
Sep 2 - first mountain bike trip with my son! He was very brave, we completed 27km and 650m elevation. Well deserved grilled trout at the end of the trip :)

and lots of small hiking/biking trips in the nearby mountains and fresh vegetables from our community garden.

Fun summer! Now we enter a new age as Barni started school, so we have to wake early every weekday. Not looking forward to that! :)

Sounds good!

Behind the Mátra and the Bükk Mountains, there is really a wonderful and quite undiscovered, unknown part of the country.

Is the absolutorium a key "preliminary defence" exam done around halfway through the PhD process? (In Brazil we call that qualficação/qualification.)

PhD absolutorium (University of Miskolc):

6 successful semesters:
8 exams (for example, Physical Chemistry was one of them)
8 other courses of research, ended by a written study of 10-25 pages (literature collection, measurement evaluation etc.)
definite amount and level of publication
definite amount of teaching students
4 semesters of research at the Department
three end-term presentations (oral) and report (written)

After PhD absolutorium:

second language exam (for me, it will be German)
two papers published in journals with Impact Factor (one in Hungarian, one in English)
a master exam called "szigorlat" (complex exam of all related scientific topics)
PhD dissertation with at least 3-4 theses
PhD dissertation defence

I think it is not a "preliminary defence" yet, but it is around halfway according to my observation of other students/would-be-doctors.

Fulfilled!

Most entertaining match of the tourney:

Hungary-Portugal 3-3 (1-1)

Gera (1-0) 19.
Nani (1-1) 42.
Dzsudzsák (2-1) 47.
C. Ronaldo (2-2) 50.
Dzsudzsák (3-2) 55.
C. Ronaldo (3-3) 62.

The stars of the teams scored the goals.

Well, that was the match where everything went in what wanted to. Gera: fantastic long-distance shoot, well deserved goal for the veteran of the team at the end of his career. Nani: Király should have saved that one. Dzsudzsák's both goals were bounced on a Portuguese players. C. Ronaldo's first goal was probably offside - the lack of the good-angle camera replay is a good evidence of that.

Hungary will face Belgium or Sweden, or less likely Ireland.

BÖFF!

I would drink this victory if I wouldn't sick, taking a lot of medicines for the flu and a earache

Quick recovery and a shot of pálinka for you! :-)

Common joke on Hungarian Internet sites. :-)

Btw Hungary won the match 2-0!!! The end of a long-long struggle. I was a little kid, 2.5 years old during World Cup 1986. I haven't ever seen Hungary on a big tournament (maybe in Atlanta, the '96 Olympics). And a victory over a stronger team! Fifth beer rolling through my throat!!! Fantastic!!! :-)

The word "two" in indo-european languages:

don't want to brag being the odd one out again, but in Hungarian this is "kett?"

The double dot is missing, it is: KETTÖ (more precisely, it is a double accent, but it can't be shown here). It is one of our few numbers which are not of Finnish-Ugric origin (in Finnish, it is KAKSI, also not shown here).

Of course these two (Finnish, Hungarian) are not Indo-European languages.
