The internationally recognized Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnár settled over to the United States in 1940, well beyond the top of his career. He was an essentially Hungarian, more precisely metropolitan author, with accents from Pest, famour for his ingeniously Hungarian sense of humour. Yet he became the most frequently translated Hungarian playwright of his era, with immense and immediate international success. Practically, Molnár did not live in Hungary from the beginning of the Horthy era (1920–1944), but the Jewish-Hungarian author decided to leave Europe well after Hitler’s takeover only. His name was known even in the United States: his first really successful play, The Devil was staged in New York in 1908, a year after being first performed in Budapest. Several of his plays had a phenomenal success story in the 1920s, his The Play is the Thing had its world premiere in New York in 1926. Carousel, the “Best Musical of the 20th Century”, by Rodgers and Hammerstein, was based on Molnár’s 1909 play Liliom.This article aims at reconstructing Molnár’s overseas network and recreating the spirit and growing loneliness of immigrants. It also tries to answer the question of how the work of an author so deeply embedded in Hungarian language and culture could be translated and adapted to foreign languages.

The international community presently lacks the ability to determine the quality and credibility of environmental measurements
that is required to make sound decisions in matters related to international security, public health, and investment-related
considerations. The ultimate goal of the work described in this article is to develop a credible information base including
measurement capability for determination of environmental contamination and the potential for proliferation of material components
of chemical or nuclear weapons. This study compared the accuracy obtained by six Russian and six U.S. laboratories for samples
representative of classes of trace metals, dioxin-furans, and radioactive substances. The results obtained in this work indicate
that current estimates for laboratory accuracy are likely overly optimistic. The weaknesses discovered by this prototype U.S.
— Russia, study also exist within the broader international community of laboratories. Further work is proposed to address
the urgent need for the international community to improve performance evaluations for analytical measurements.

Fourteen samples of wastes from algal plants were tested for possible analytical and/or technological use for90Sr and137Cs extraction from natural waters. Sorption experiments were carried out in static and dynanic conditions. It was noted that
the examined sorbents posses high affinity for Sr2+. The sorption capacity reached the value of 4.72·10−3 mole/g. Simple and express analytical procedures for90Sr determination were developed and tested in the Dnieper estuary region.
