    The second cake is...

    Poppy seed cake (commonly called Makowiec) - it's dough layered with ground poppy seeds, sugar (or honey) and dried fruit. Such baking usually takes three possible form of:
    - cake or tart, where a thick layer of poppy seed mass is placed on a thin layer of dough
    - oblong, spiral-shaped dough in the shape of a roller (the so-called poppy seed strudel) - made of yeast dough, shortbread and yeast dough, less often semi-shortcrust
    - strudel - made of strudel, shortcrust or semi-shortcrust dough

    Poppy seeds intended for the mass should be properly prepared before grinding (or grating). One way is to scald (pour boiling water over) the grains in a sieve, then carefully drain and evaporate. Another method is to pour cold or hot milk or water over the poppy seeds and let them soak for a while - sometimes after boiling them. According to some recipes, after steaming or soaking the beans, they still need to be boiled. If the beans are soaked overnight, cooking for just a few minutes should suffice.

    Prepared in this way, carefully drained poppy seeds were ground twice or three times in a meat grinder through a strainer with the smallest eyes, or grated in a makutra. Grated poppy seeds are further ground with sugar or honey, and then dried fruits such as chopped walnuts, almonds, soaked raisins, candied orange or lemon peel are added. In regional cuisines, the use of additives such as hazelnuts, prunes or pears is also found.
    Baked poppy seed rolls are usually covered with white (boiled) frosting and decorated with raw poppy seeds or candied orange peel. The trade also includes strudels with chocolate coating.

    Makowiec is a typical Christmas Eve and Easter dish in Polish cuisine. In some parts of the country, it spread only after the Second World War, e.g. thanks to settlers from eastern Poland. Regionally, the poppy seed strudel takes the form of folded buns with a poppy seed filling.
    In the past, poppy seed cake was hosted only on well-to-do tables. It was baked in ordinary houses only for special occasions, such as the aforementioned Christmas Eve and carnival, Easter and various family celebrations.

    The great Jordan Burroughs is not going to Tokyo he lost twice to Kyle Dake in US trials . Dake is a two time world champion at 79kg and he was the better wrestler tonight without doubt. but it was just sad to see a great champion like Burroughs leaving the mat like that. he didn't announce retirement in the interview after the match but I believe that was the last time for him.

    Tunisia won the last quota so in short
    it's highly possible that we end up with 0 quotas for Oceania wrestlers, I wonder if that makes UWW to change the system for Paris ? the idea of merging these 2 continents were to give 5-6 quotas in total to Oceania. but now Africa is taking benefit of that.
    I know this is essential to get other continents involved in the sport. most African countries only invest in the sport to qualify for the Olympics. but with only 16 quotas available for each weight maybe, just maybe it's time to make some changes. give 1 quota to each continent and put the rest in the world qualification tournaments. but that will decrease the number of countries in this sport at the Olympics. so ...

    here are the qualified wrestlers, assuming nothing crazy will happen in the last round of some weights with round robin format
    it wasn't really hard to predict but I was correct 11 out of 12
    67: ( already qualified at the Worlds)
    130:   and the second quota will be decided between and (most probably TUN)
    assuming TUN will win the last quota we have
    4 4 3+1
    Morocco ruined the 4-4-4 party. but Egypt already had the 4th quota.

    believe it or not, today's gold medal match in the women's -48kg between Milani and Giorda was the first ever all-Italian affair in the history of the IJF Grand Slam...
    and with today's Gold, Francesca Milani almost completed a miracolous comeback in the OQR and basically fixed her Olympic spot with only 3 tournaments left (even if 1 of those tournaments is the world championship, with many, many points up for grabs)...
    tomorrow the men's -73kg is the main focus for our team, with Fabio Basile (Olympic Champion in Rio, but in the -66kg) desperately looking for a big score to save his ass and earn a spot for the Tokyo Games (he's very much on the edge)...
    and he has a tough competition also inside the team, with Giovanni Esposito only a few points behind him in the OQR (the man who ends up on top between those 2 would eventually go to Tokyo)...
    tomorrow they both have quite favourable draw and could fight each other in the would surely be a match to follow...

    Final Standing available here
    EupenM   George_D  juliosilva  
    It was a superb performance by the Russian skaters in Stockholm at these world championships. In the prediction contest we also had superb performances and it was a close competition between many predictors. In the end, these three predictors ended with the medals. They are @EupenM, @George_D, @juliosilva. Big congratulation to all three medallists.
    On top of the podium and securing the gold medal was @EupenM. With eight gold medals and one perfect predictions through the contest, the numbers speak for itself. This is to my knowlegde the first gold and medal in any prediction contest for the EupenM. It's always fantastic to see new faces among the medallists. He secures France their second gold medal this year. A huge congratulation with the gold medal. Well-deserved!
    Securing the silver medal was @George_D. With solid predictions each day and being in the top of the standing, it is a very deserved silver medal for him. It's his second medal this year and the first of silver. Maybe soon he will take a step up on the podium and complete a medal set for this year. Congrats with the silver medal!
    The bronze medal was up fro grabs for many predictors. Three predictors ended with the same amount of total points, 57 points in total. But with eight gold medals and one perfect predictions, it was one of the top predictors for 2021, @juliosilva, that secured his second medal of 2021 already by winning the tie-break against @IoNuTzZ and @Dolby. Another great perfomance by juliosilva. He continues his great start of the season. Big congrats with the bronze medal!
    The honourable mentions will this time go to these three predictors, @IoNuTzZ, @Dolby and @Gianlu33. Both IoNuTzZ and Dolby were as close as they could get to win a medal by only losing on tie-break. It's very unfortunate when you miss out on a medal on this rule. However both predictors can look back on a great contest and maybe soon they will get their first medal of the season. In 6th-place came @Gianlu33. He needed a really good last day to have a chance for a medal. Unfortunately it wasn't enough this time to come on the podium for the second time in 2021. But another top place for him this year continuing his strong start.
    Lastly, thank you to all who participated in this prediction contest. According to the original calendar we would have a break for a month now after the women's ice hockey world championship was postponed to early May. But this postponement opened up for having another prediction contest in April. The men's curling world championship will begin this Friday in Calgary, so remember to make your prediction before the deadline and start of the first match. 
    That's all from me, your prediction contest manager, Wumo.
