ERR News - Events across the nation on June 4 marked the 127 birthday of Estonia's blue, black and white flag.
The tricolor emerged at sunrise, as always, atop the medieval tower called Pikk Hermann on the capital's Toompea hill. Orchestras and choirs accompanied its hois-ting.
At noon, schoolchildren and the Defense Forces carried 127 flags to the historical Endla Theater in Pärnu – where the Republic of Estonia was first declared independent in 1918.

Keemia is a subject you learned at school – chemistry. The science of matter and the changes it undergoes. Yet these days, if something in Eesti is spoken about as being keemia, it's not good, at least not where food is concerned. A child wanting a bright pink popsicle might be warned "Ära seda söö, see on puhas keemia" – "Don't eat that, it's "completely chemical" (in make-up), i.e. a product of the chemical industry and not natural.

ERR News  – New figures from Statistics Estonia show that 5,294 people moved out of the country last year, about 14 percent more than in 2009. At the same time, immigration dropped to 2,810, down from last year's decade high of 3,880.
The emigration figure, which represents 0.4 percent of the population, is generally in line with numbers seen since Estonia joined the EU in 2004. These range between 4,300 to 5,500 emigrants per year.
The vast majority of those who left Estonia last year, 3,475, were headed for Finland. But Estonia made up for part of the loss with immigration from Finland, which totaled 1,020.

ERR News - Due to the increase in fuel prices on the global market, the cruise ship and ferry operator Tallink will introduce a two-euro surcharge to its passenger tickets.
The additional cost will be added on bookings made after June 1.
The fuel surcharge per passenger on the Tallinn-Helsinki, Tallinn-Stockholm, Riga-Stockholm, Turku-Stockholm and Helsinki-Stockholm routes will add on an extra two euros for both cruises and one-way trips.
On the Helsinki-Rostock route, the additional cost per passenger will be eight euros for a one-way ticket, as the distance is much longer and fuel consumption considerably higher.
According to Tallink, the fuel price on the world market has risen 203 percent since 2009 and during the first five months of 2011 the growth has been 25 percent.

ERR News - Purchase prices of apartments in newly-constructed buildings are rising, while those in pre-existing buildings have stayed the same since the beginning of the year, according to a representative of the Uus Maa real estate agency.
Elari Tamm, the company's executive director for residential properties, said that prices in new buildings in and around the center of Tallinn had risen by about 10 percent, and those elsewhere in the city by about 5 percent.
He recommended that anyone trying to sell an older apartment in one of the established residential areas lower their prices if they want to sell.
Newly-built apartments, which make up about a fifth of the nation's market, are currently only a phenomenon in Tallinn, and to a lesser extent in Tartu.

No need to wait any longer: as Estonia is not the land where last-minute political earthquakes can be expected to revolutionize consolidated choice, today we feel like telling you the name of the new President of the Estonian Republic.
A little less than three months before elections will decide the future President of the country, it seems already clear that Mr. Toomas Henrik Ilves will not miss the honor of a second mandate to guide Estonia also during the next five years.

Couple weeks ago our solar energy park site in Kurenurme was visited by several representatives from our neighboring Baltic countries, Latvia and Lithuania. The scientific academic community in Estonia, i.e. Jaan Saar, Director, and Ain Kallis of EMHI as well as Enn Meliakov from Tallinn Technical -have all been very supportive of our solar “proof of concept” project right from the start. They believe solar energy should and must be taken more seriously in the Baltics.

ERR News - The US Secret Service opened its Estonian office in the Pirita district of the capital on May 20 to serve as the headquarters "to engage counterparts" in Russia and the Nordic region.
"Estonia was selected as the site for the new Secret Service office due to both the investigative nexus it provides in combating cyber and financial crimes, as well as the opportunity it provides the agency in the fulfillment of its protective duties within the region," stated the US Embassy in Tallinn.
