Felicitare de Craciun, livrata cu 93 de ani intarziere. In SUA.

A fost odata... Cand nu se inventase e-mailul, cand curentul electric era un lux, cand incepuse Marele Razboi, cand SUA nu erau superputere mondiala, cand la Moscova era un Ţar adevărat, la Bucureşti era un rege, cand nu existau brazi artificiali şi nici borduri importate din China.

A postcard featuring a color drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl was mailed in 1914, but its journey was slower than Christmas. It just arrived in northwest Kansas.

The Christmas card was dated Dec. 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Neb.

It's a mystery where it spent most of the last century, Oberlin Postmaster Steve Schultz said. "It's surprising that it never got thrown away," he said. "How someone found it, I don't know."

Ethel Martin is deceased, but Schultz said the post office wanted to get the card to a relative.

That's how the 93-year-old relic ended up with Bernice Martin, Ethel's sister-in-law. She said she believed the card had been found somewhere in Illinois.

"That's all we know," she said. "But it is kind of curious. We'd like to know how it got down there."

The card was placed inside another envelope with modern postage for the trip to Oberlin — the one-cent postage of the early 20th century wouldn't have covered it, Martin said.

"We don't know much about it," she said. "But wherever they kept it, it was in perfect shape."

Potrivit site-ului  Index.hu ,  International Investment Bank  îşi mută sediul general de la Moscova la Budapesta. Potrivit site-ului Băncii, România este printre acţionarii săi. Parlamentul Ungariei a dezbătut acordul internaţional care stabileşte noul sediu al băncii, acord care conţine o serie de detalii alarmante. Propunerea legislativă pentru introducerea unui nou acord internaţional cu Rusia în sistemul legal ungar conţine o serie de detalii neobişnuite, care acordă o serie de drepturi suplimentare pentru International Investment Bank (IIB), care este succesorul legal al Comecon şi al băncii fostei organizaţii economice sovietice. Documentul prevede că mare parte din costurile băncii - inclusiv remobilarea, chiria şi securitatea - să fie plătite de contribuabilii maghiari.  Presa ungară a subliniat că acordul menţionează o
