Is Brussels threatening us with sanctions? When shall we wake up?
"If we stayed living in the idea that they want to do us harm, why should we go there. They either have to respect us or we will not integrate with the Union," claims Monika Beňová, a leader of SMER PARTY for the elections to the European parliament.

Békés Csaba
For many Slovak people living in Slovakia and abroad, it is almost forgotten centre of Slovaks living in the south-east of Hungary. We are celebrating the 285th anniversary of Slovak inhabitation in Novohrad, Hont and a former County of Zvolen. In the 19th century it was the biggest village in Europe," Zion of Hungarian Evangelic people". At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries it was the town with the largest number of Slovak inhabitants in the whole world (20,000 Slovak inhabitants).

"Csaba Sausage" Festival
It is a big business not only for the town but also for the producers of very popular Csaba sausages. Fifty meters long sausage made by Cassovia team of Košice, which was led by Arpad Račko-an academic sculptor born in Békés Csaba, has won the second place and 30,000 Forints this year.

Hungarian freight forwarder also for Slovaks
Did you know that one company based in Békés Csaba co-operated with a large number of Slovak and Czech partners-traders?"It might be unbelievable but it is Csaba Sped Kft, ´ says Géza Galisz, the owner of this freight forwarding company dealing with an international freight." It is situated near the railway station, in the building of transhipment terminal. Our partners are the representatives of big Hungarian companies, for example Tondach Magyarország Rt., Hungarocamion Rt., and we are the only carriers for Ikea Company.

Being the Queen of the largest number of Danes
In Denmark, Margrethe II is considered to be the factor of stability and also the most radical left wing of political powers do not support the republican establishment because people would not support it. Royal Courts personify their roots the have in common in some ways. We would like to introduce you the continuity in the country at the time when many things have been being changed. There is the only way how monarchy could last. That is to understand its obligation to young generation as well as enjoy this obligation, claims the Queen.

Slovak honey on its way to Western Europe
"The situation is disastrous in the Slovak market. You can find imported honey of a very poor quality or domestic very often diluted honey in our shops. It ridiculous that while our honey is being praised for its quality abroad, honey we buy in Slovakia is far-away from high-quality honey. A low price is the most decisive for Slovak customers," says Ing. Pavel Blaščák, an executive of MEDAS, s.r.o. Spišská Nová Ves.

An old gamekeeper's cottage for lovers of country tourism
"It was literally about enthusiasm for the first two years. It is even impossible to think about making money. The whole family sponsored the cottage from their own financial resources. It is our advantage that we are not in debt. We can pay more attention to our guests and thus create cosy and domestic atmosphere in our cottage," Radek and Richard Macháň say about managing the cottage.

Christianity and development of Slovak nation
Cyril and Metod´s spiritual heritage and historical legacy of Great Moravia as well as the natural right of nations for their self- identification, make Slovak politicians morally and legally obliged not to betray these significant national and state values while signing the basic future basic document of the European Union.

What about taking your hat and leave?
The only Slovak Government resolution about selling the unfinished building of Slovak National Theatre was enough to get everything changed. Nobody has missed this building for eighteen years and suddenly it has been in great demand. What will happen to this investment of three and a half milliards?

Pioneer of entrepreneurial incubators
The project for establishing HI- TECH scientific and technological incubator in Košice is the first of the investment projects in Eastern Slovakia. It was co- financed by Phare funds. Rudolf Schuster, Slovak President and Erik van den Linden, ambassador of European committee in Slovakia opened it.

The worst commanders of our times
A few of very good recipes how to be defeated by weaker enemy and decimate their own troops. For example British field marshal Haig while fighting Germans defeated 8 kilometres in 4 months and lost 420,000 soldiers. In 1917, he overcame this record in Flandres here he lost 550,000 soldiers and achieved 6,5 kilometres of the land. However, after the World War I he was glorified as hero in saloons in London.

Circulation of energy among five animals
The left side of the table is connected with a dragon. It is very good to place an object symbolising your goals there. For example a dictionary while learning a foreign language, or a computer if it is a necessary part of your work or make some space for your unfinished thesis. One college of mine has the sculpture of naked love goddess in the corner of his desk. That is great although he recommends me not to get married.

Jazz Prešov 2003 and its highlights
The great return of a famous and legendary band after 20 years: Peter Lipa-Luboš Andršt and their Blues Band. International Jazz Festival of Prešov is the second oldest festival in Slovakia. It has been organised since 1992 and Peter Lipa, a popular jazzman born in Prešov and contemporary chairman of Jazz association in Slovakia was its main initiator. This festival is a great inspiration for other jazz festivals in Košice, Trenčín, Martin and Levice.

Diamond of Iceland longs for victory
According to statistics, Eidur Gudjonsen is a specimen. He rotated his father during an official international match. At the age of thirteen, he was a representative of the under-sixteen team. When he reached the age of sixteen he moved to the Dutch club, PSV Einhoven. He used to play side by side such players as Belgian Nillis or fabulous Brazilian Ronaldo.

Kalinka on Stamford Bridge
Russian predator in English football exchange. Chelsea fans and English public were really shocked last summer. A Russian millionaire Roman Abramovič 36-year-old co-owner of Sibneft, an oil company (He owns 90 per cent of shares) and an owner of an enormous Rossijskij aluminj (50 per cent) bought this popular team. To reach his majority in the club, he paid 85 million pounds.
