This study focuses on a theme that until now has only been addressed to a lesser degree in dance folkloristics, namely the relationship between dance and politics. I examine two types of Central Transylvanian folk dance, the local variations of the dance group called eszközös pásztortánc (Herdsmen’s Dance with implement) and the local variations of the dance group called lassú legényes (slow male dance), attempting to study their transformation in terms of form and function during the 20th century in a traditional and revival context. Using two case studies, I also reflect on the unique system of relations between folklorism and folklorisation in an attempt to illustrate Hungarian and Romanian socio-economic factors and cultural policy underlying the transformation of these dances.

Upper Carboniferous (Westphalian) coal-bearing fluvial sediments (Téseny Sandstone Formation) of the Slavonian-Drava Unit and their reworked pebbles and cobbles occurring in the western part of the Mecsek Mountains in Miocene conglomerate sequences (Szászvár Formation) were studied.  Based on the petrographic and geochemical characteristics, the sandstone studied consists of arkose, subarkose, litharenite and sublitharenite. The main clastic source was a recycled orogenic area (collision suture and fold-thrust belt) dominated by metamorphic rocks. It was associated with a probably Variscan magmatic arc as indicated by the volcanic rock fragments. The original source area of these clastic sediments was felsic and the analyzed sandstone could correspond to a continental arc/active margin tectonic suite.  The pebble and cobble-sized clasts of the conglomerate were predominantly derived from acidic and intermediate volcanic rocks, low-grade regional metamorphic rocks (different types of schist, metasandstone, mylonite, metagranitoid, gneiss, quartzite, and metaquartzite) and siliceous sedimentary rocks. Among the sedimentary clasts, reworked black siltstone and fine-grained sandstone from older (possibly Carboniferous) deposits are common. Chert and contact metamorphic rocks are present in minor quantity. The extracted volcanic clasts consist of andesite, trachyandesite, dacite and rhyolite. Their geochemistry suggests convergent, active continental margin affinity. Upper Carboniferous siliciclastic successions are widely known at the southeastern margin of the European Variscides. In the area of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin, the Cracow Sandstone Series (Westphalian C and D) shows a similar petrographic composition to that of the Téseny Sandstone Formation. Additionally, volcanic clasts of the Upper Carboniferous conglomerate from southern Transdanubia and the calc-alkaline volcanites from the Intra-Sudetic Basin can be characterized by similar geochemical patterns.

A veleszületett szívhibák sebészi kezelése a technika fejlődésével folyamatosan változik. Az egyik legegyszerűbb, legközismertebb fejlődési rendellenesség a coarctatio aortae. A szerzők az elmúlt évtizedek során alkalmazott műtéti megoldásokat (’end-to-end’ anasztomózis, foltplasztikák, interpositumok), a műtéti lehetőségeket mutatják be, hazai és nemzetközi tapasztalatok alapján ismertetik a különböző megoldások eredményeit, előnyeit, hátrányait. Nagy sebészi kihívást jelent az újszülöttkori súlyos aorta-hypoplasiával járó eseteknek, a későbbiekben a kialakuló restenosisoknak és az esetleges szövődményeknek (aneurysmák, dissectiók) a megoldása. A coarctatio aortae megoldásai még napjainkban is nehézségeket, sebészi kihívást jelentenek, hiszen ezeknek mások a megoldásai csecsemőkben és nagyobb gyermekekben, illetve felnőttkorban. Itt már sokszor kell alkalmazni a katéterintervenciós megoldásokat is, melyek helyes időzítése még napjainkban is nagy kihívást jelent. Orv Hetil. 2020; 161(21): 861–866.

The aim of our study was to survey the geosmin (GSM) and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) concentrations of the sediment and that of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) flesh in three different Hungarian fish farms (clayey, marshy, and sodic ponds).

Results showed that the concentrations of off-flavour compounds of the sediment and fish fillets were related to the natural environment. The GSM concentration of bottom soil samples was higher, than MIB in each fish farm. Both off-flavour compounds were the highest in the marshy fish pond and the lowest in the sodic pond. In case of fish flesh, significant differences were found between the farms in GSM level and fat content. In the fish flesh the same tendency was found as in the sediments, but surprisingly, MIB concentration was higher in the fillets, referring to accumulation.
