    With only 3.000 speakers in Northwest Siberia the Ob-Ugrian language Mansi is on the verge of extinction. Predictions say it will be extinct in ten to twenty years at the latest. The same holds true for Khanti, a member of the same language family. It is for this reason that extensive documentation is so important. Johanna Laakso, professor for Finno-Ugrian Studies at the University of Vienna concerns herself with the documentation of this and other minority languages in the framework of an FWF project and the EU project ELDIA... The documentation of the languages Mansi and Khanti is additionally of...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists.

Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    COPENHAGEN -- The $10 billion a year proposed by rich nations to help the poor adapt to climate change is "not sufficient" and the gap between what's offered and what's needed could wreck the Copenhagen climate conference, American billionaire George Soros said Thursday. The investor-philanthropist, one in a line of international notables visiting the 192-nation meeting, told reporters he had developed a partial solution. Mr. Soros suggested shifting some International Monetary Fund resources from providing liquidity to stressed global financial systems to a new mission of financing projects in developing countries for clean energy and adapting to climate change.

    Two-second penalties for both Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher set up a thrilling qualifying session for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday afternoon. With the two key championship contenders eliminated before the top-ten shootout, the honours for pole position fell right at the very end to McLaren’s Kimi Raikkonen, whose last-gasp lap of 1m 19.599s came just as Felipe Massa looked to have bagged the first Formula One pole of his career. Also, Hungarian Grand Prix stewards have cancelled American Scott Speed’s three fastest qualifying times as punishment for impeding another driver during Saturday’s session. The move means the Toro...

    BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary's 300 troops will be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of March 2005, the government said, in an announcement officials said was timed to avoid influencing the U.S. presidential election. Officials said the decision was announced between the end of voting and the official result of the U.S. presidential election, so as to avoid making it a campaign issue and to show it would have been made irrespective of who was U.S. president. "The timing of the decision is not a coincidence, there is no result yet in the U.S. election and we wanted to demonstrate...

    Hungarian troops stationed in Iraq could be withdrawn before their mandate expires at the end of the year if stability is restored in the country by then, Foreign Minister Laszlo Kovacs said Thursday. "The hope is greater now that the situation in Iraq could develop favourably," Kovacs told Hungarian public television from New York. "Hungarian soldiers could come home before their mandate ends if their presence is no longer needed." Kovacs added however that Iraq's stabilisation before December 31, 2004 -- the date until which Hungarian troops have a parliamentary mandate to stay in Iraq -- was an "optimistic" assessment....
  • Hungary loses its first soldier to violence in Iraq

    The first Hungarian soldier to die in Iraq has been killed in a blast south of Baghdad. The 27-year-old soldier was with a 47-member convoy that came under attack as it headed for a Ukrainian base with supplies of water. Hungary deployed 300 soldiers, mostly logistics experts, in Iraq last September. They have a parliamentary mandate to stay until the end of this year. The country's political opposition has recently urged the Government to withdraw its soldiers but the ruling Socialist-Liberal coalition has insisted the men will fulfil their mandate. Defence Minister Ferenc Juhasz told journalists that Hungary's troops would...
