... that the inventor of pixel, digital imaging, and developer of digital image scanning had a Hungarian background?  He was Russell A. Kirsch,  born to Hungarian and Lithuanian Jewish parents on June 20th , 1929. He died on August 11, 2020 at the age of 91.

Kirsch attended prestigious colleges, New York University, Harvard University, and later MIT, and became an electronic engineer.  He worked for the National Bureau of Standards (now the National Institute of Standards and Technology) for 50 years.

The first photo he scanned was of his 3 month-old son Walden, which according to Life magazine is one of the "100 Photographs That Changed the World”.

His invention played an important part in space exploration and in the development of the CAT scan in the medical field.

May he rest in peace!

... that related to the idea of August 20th being the day of new bread, Margit Csiszár baked a loaf to be blessed by Rev. Attila Kulcsár in the Venice (FL) PetÅ‘fi Klub?
