Pick Szeged In Round 19 league leaders Pick Szeged travelled to fifth-placed Gyöngyös, who have final four dreams in the Hungarian Championship. The guests were the favourites to win even without Blazevic and Garcia Parrondo who are still recuperating. Gábor Ancsin’s injured knee has healed completely however so he was available for coach Juan Carlos Pastor.In front of a full house the home team quickly gained the lead. It didn’t last for long since Pick Szeged’s two Swedish players Kallman and Larholm took the initiative and by the middle of the first half Pick were 4 goals up (6-10). Gyöngyös could only get a bit closer but at the end of the first half the four-goal difference remained (14-18). Mindegia showed portions of his performance before his injury, which was crucial to Pick’s overall play.The home team could keep the pace until the middle of the second half. Pick were constantly 3-4 goals up but suddenly (in only four minutes!) they doubled their lead (49th minute 24-31) and deciced the fate of the match. Prce was fine again, Larholm scored from penalties and Ancsin was also effective thus showing he would be able to play for longer periods.On Wednesday Pick will meet No. 4 Tatabánya in Szeged then on 1 March they are travelling to Veszprém to decide who will start the play-off from first place.Gyöngyös-Pick Szeged 26-35 (14-18)Bs: Frey (7), Hajdú, Varsandán (5) / Larholm (7), Ancsin,Lasica (5)Text: Gábor Várkonyi, Péter Butty read more

first_imgCabinet back “awesome” possibility of cloning each otherWednesday, 15 May The Cabinet will meet today to progress the “awesome” possibility of cloning each other.This follows a breakthrough in the United States where human embryo clones were produced.“This is so awesome,” Transport Minister Leo Varadkar said. “I’ll finally have someone on my level to talk to.”While all ministers want to be cloned there is a reluctance among them to go first.“We’re a bit wary in case anything goes wrong,” a Cabinet source said. “So we’re starting with James Reilly.”“No matter what went wrong with cloning him it couldn’t be worse than the original.”The Mire ‘humbled’ as stories become Government policyThursday, 16 May The Mire was humbled today after Expenditure Minister Brendan Howlin revealed he based policy on Mire stories. IS THE NEWS getting you down? Current affairs causing a frown? Satirical site The Mirehas an alternative angle on the week’s hot topics…Bus staff rage as Varadkar records Only Losers Take The BusMonday, 13 MayTransport Minister Leo Varadkar has infuriated striking Bus Eireann staff by recording a song lampooning bus passengers.Inspired by Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield’s version of Space Oddity, Mr Varadkar chose to record The Fatima Mansions’ Only Losers Take The Bus.It is understood the video for the song shows Mr Varadkar singing on a Bus Eireann bus while trying to make his guitar float in zero gravity.“He was peeved when his guitar wouldn’t float,” an aide said. “It was his first time on a bus and he didn’t realise they don’t have zero gravity.”Thousands struggle to get to work after bus strike suspendedTuesday, 14 MayThousands of commuters struggled to get to work this morning after Bus Éireann workers suspended their strike action.Many were stranded at bus stops around the country waiting for buses that had already left.“Why do I believe the timetable?” a Longford man banging his head off a bus stop said. “There won’t be another one for hours.”“There’s no doubt buses cause absenteeism,” an employment expert said. “At least when they’re on strike commuters make other arrangements.” Mr Howlin told TheJournal.ie that Government ministers would not be singled out for pay cuts.This follows a Mire story on 26 February that said Howlin pledged no further cuts to ministers’ pay.The Mire is available to draft policy for the Government for a reasonable fee.Alan Shatter knows what you did last summercenter_img Friday, 17 MayJustice Minister Alan Shatter knows what you did last summer.Mr Shatter told Independent TD Mick Wallace on Prime Time that he knew he had been verbally warned by gardaí last May for using a mobile phone while driving.Later Mr Shatter revealed that a single mother in Blanchardstown had been putting dirty nappies in her neighbour’s wheelie bin.He then told a Lucan man to stop seeing his neighbour’s wife.“The all-seeing eye of Alan is watching you,” a garda said. “Be afraid; be very afraid.”All eyes on Ireland for Oireachtas Abortion FestivalFriday, 17 MayThe signature event of The Gathering gets underway today with the highly anticipated Oireachtas Abortion Festival.For three days all eyes will be on Ireland’s abortion interpretive dances and carefully choreographed displays of abortion hysteria.“It’s what The Gathering is all about, it’s what Ireland is all about.
