printing houses, libraries, laboratories, business incubators, student rooms, dining halls, students' unions, student societies, and academic festivities. Moreover, the history of the city is often intertwined with the history of the university itself. Many European university towns have not been merely important places of scientific and educational endeavor, but also centers of political, cultural and social influence to their respective societies throughout the centuries. Examples of these cities include Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, Szeged, Kraków, Leiden, Grenoble, Montpellier, Bologna, Coimbra, Salamanca, Leuven, Ghent, Heidelberg, Freiburg, Fribourg, Göttingen, Trondheim, Pisa, L'Aquila, Marburg, Jena, Ferrara, Uppsala, Siena, Pavia, Delft, Tartu, Tübingen, or Poitiers. Potchefstroom, Grahamstown and Stellenbosch are South African examples of university towns in the European tradition. Gömbös entered the Austro-Hungarian Army as a cadet in Pécs and quickly became a member of the officer corps, serving as a captain (Captain (land)) during World War I. While in the army, Gömbös became a staunch advocate of Hungary's gaining independence from Austria and a bitter critic of the Habsburgs. After World War I ended and Hungary split from Austria, Gömbös joined Conservative Hungarian forces in Szeged that were unwilling to support Communist Béla Kun, who had seized control of Hungary in 1919, forming his own paramilitary group, the Hungarian National Defence Association (''Magyar Országos Véderő Egylet'', or MOVE). Gömbös became a close ally of Miklós Horthy, the leader of the anti-Communist government in Szeged, and played a leading role in organizing Horthy’s army. For his services, Gömbös was made minister of defense in the Szeged government. After Kun’s government was ousted in August 1919, Gömbös helped direct the Conservatives’ purge of Communists from Hungarian society. Gömbös also supported the actions against Hungary’s Jews, who Gömbös and his colleagues believed were the primary backers of Communism, having noted that Kun and many of the ministers in his Communist government were Jews. '''Csongrád''' is the name of an administrative county (comitatus (Counties of Hungary) or ''megye'') in southern Hungary, on the both sides of the river Tisza, on the border with Serbia and Romania. It shares borders with the Hungarian counties Bács-Kiskun, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Békés (Békés (county)). The administrative centre of Csongrád county is Szeged. The county is also part of the Danube-Kris-Mures-Tisa euroregion. Geography The area of Csongrád county is flat. It has a high number of sunshine hours and excellent soil, which makes it the most important agricultural area of Hungary. Its most famous products are paprika from Szeged and onion from Makó, but grain, vegetables and fruits are also significant. Half of the onion, paprika and vegetables produced in Hungary are from Csongrád. The county is also rich in oil and natural gas. In 1920, the Treaty of Trianon assigned a small area in the southeast of the county (Nădlac and Şeitin (Şeitin, Arad)) to Romania. The rest of the county was united with parts of Torontál county (a small area south of Szeged) and Arad (Arad (Hungarian county)) county (a small area south of Békéscsaba) to form the new county ''Csanád-Arad-Torontál''. In 1918, the county first became part of the newly formed Banat Republic, and then part of Banat, Bačka and Baranja region of the Kingdom of Serbia, which subsequently became part of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later renamed to Yugoslavia). By the Treaty of Trianon of 1920, the area of the county was divided between the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, Romania, and Hungary. Most of the county was assigned to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (which later became Yugoslavia). The north-eastern part of the county was assigned to Romania, and the northernmost part of the county (a small area south of Szeged) was assigned to Hungary and became part of the new county Csanád-Arad-Torontál (Csanád County).

Skah's sister is married to the Finnish runner Janne Holmén and lives in Uppsala, Sweden. The ''Lejre Chronicle'' The ''Chronicle of Lejre'' (''Chronicon Lethrense'') written about 1170 introduces a primeval King Ypper of Uppsala whose three sons were Dan, who afterwards ruled Denmark, Nori (Nór), who afterwards ruled Norway, and Østen, who afterwards ruled the Swedes (Sweden). Dan apparently first ruled in Zealand (Zealand (Denmark)) for the Chronicle states that it was when Dan had saved his people from an attack by the Emperor Augustus that the Jutes and the men of Fyn and Scania (Skåne) also accepted him as king, whence the resultant expanded country of Denmark was named after him. Dan's wife was named Dana and his son was named Ro. thumb Ale's Stones (Image:Ales stenar bred.jpg), where Ale was buried according to tradition. '''Ale the Strong''' (Heimskringla) or ''Ole'' (English: ''Ola''), in Scandinavian legend, belonged to the House of Skjöldung (Scylding), and he was the son of king Fridleif of Denmark and a cousin of Helgi's (and consequently of the Hrothgar of Beowulf). He fought several battles against king Aun of Uppsala, and he ruled in Uppsala for 25 years until he was killed by Starkad the old. He wrote that king Halfdan's (Healfdene) son '''Helgi''' ruled in Lejre. He invaded Sweden with such a large army that king Aðils (Eadgils) could not do anything else but to flee Uppsala. Helgi amassed a great deal of booty and took queen Yrsa (whom Aðils had found in Saxony) with him. Yrsa bore a son named Hrólfr Kraki (Hroðulf). When the boy was three years of age, Yrsa's mother, queen Alof of Saxony, came to visit her and told her that her husband Helgi was her own father. Then Yrsa returned to Sweden and king Aðils. Hrólfr Kraki was only eight years old when Helgi died during a war expedition, and Hrólfr was proclaimed his successor. The name is related to, or derived from, Old Norse ''Fyrva'' which meant "to ebb" and it referred to the partially inundated soggy plains that today are dry farmland and the modern town of Uppsala. In mediaeval times, a royal estate called ''Førisæng'', "Fyris meadow", was located near this field. The small lakes ''Övre Föret'', "the Upper Fyri", and ''Nedre Föret'', "the Lower Fyri", are remains of this marsh and retain a modern form of ''Fyri'' (the -''t'' suffix is the definite article, which lake names always take in Swedish). The field went alongside what was renamed the ''Fyris river'' (Fyrisån) in the 17th century to make the connection between the river and the Sagas more obvious. thumb 125px left Milles' Poseidon (Image:MillesPoseidon.jpg) in Gothenburg, Sweden Milles was born Carl Wilhelm Andersson, son of lieutenant ''Emil "Mille" Andersson'' and his wife ''Walborg Tisell'', (June 23, 1875–September 19, 1955) outside Uppsala in 1875. In 1897 he made what he thought would be a temporary stop in Paris on his way to Chile, where he was due to manage a school of gymnastics. However, he remained in Paris, where he studied art, working in Auguste Rodin's studio and slowly gaining recognition as a sculptor. In 1904 he and Olga moved to Munich. '''Klarälven''' ("The clear river" in Swedish (Swedish language) Page 168 of the Swedish Ethymological Dictionary ''Svenskt ortnamnslexikon'', published 2003 by the institute of Språk- och folkminnesinstitutet, Uppsala. – The name ''Klarälven'' or ''Clara älv'' has been used since the beginning of the 18th century. Before that time the river had some other names, among them the most important name: ''Gautelfr'' i.e. Göta älv. ) is a river flowing through Norway and Sweden. Together with Göta älv, which it is called as the river has passed through the lake Vänern, thus regarded as an entity, Göta älv-Klarälven is the longest river in Scandinavia and in the Nordic countries and its Swedish part the longest river of Sweden. These two rivers also has the largest drainage basin in the same areas, 50.229 km 2 (included all the rivers that run into the lake Vänern), of which 42.468 km 2 is located in Sweden, and the rest 7.761 in Norway.

The French fleet consisting of 43 ships carrying 15,000 troops had divided mid-Atlantic into smaller groups to avoid interception by the Royal Navy with orders to reform at Bantry Bay. The bulk of the fleet arrived successfully, but several ships, including the flagship ''Fraternité'' carrying General Hoche were delayed. While awaiting their arrival, bad weather intervened and the lack of leadership, together with uneasiness at the prospect of being trapped, forced the decision to return to France. Tone wrote of the expedition in his diary, saying that ''We were close enough to toss a biscuit ashore''. The square in Bantry is today named after Wolfe Tone.
