CEECD Bofficevisitphoto

EANC and CEEC colleagues met with Representative Diaz-Balart's (R-FL) staff to share priorities and discuss policy.

 

The Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) recently published its annual policy brief, listing the legislative priorities the group is focusing its advocacy efforts on this year.

“Ta lendab mesipuu poole” is one of the most popular songs and sentiments of the massive Estonian song festivals. The poet, Juhan Liiv, writes of bees (signifying patriotic Estonians) who always fly towards the hive (their beloved home land). But this article is not about poetry or patriots, but of those conscientious striped pollinators, integral components of human survival. As Albert Einstein realized, “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”

Jäätise kiosk

Three to five in the afternoon was an especially exciting time at the Eesti rahvus/vaheline skautide suur/laager or Estonian international scout jamboree "Seiklus/ratas" or "Wheel of Adventure", which wrapped up after 8 days at the Järvemetsa of Estonia – Tagametsa, located near Rassi küla in Järvamaa in central Estonia. 15.00 - 17.00 was when the jäätise/kiosk "Jätsla" selling jäätis (ice cream) was open and also the designated time when campers could take a dip in the Saarjõe River's cold brown depths. JÄTS is slang for jäätis, just like VÕIKU is slang, or an endearing diminuative for või/leib (sandwich).

A new choir is forming in the Bay Area, and what could be more Estonian than coming together to sing? With the goal of performing in the 2019 Laulupidu in Tallinn, the group is open to all who want a chance to meet and sing with fellow Estonians and Estonian music enthusiasts.

More than 50 illegal border crossings recorded by the Police and Border Guard (PPA) occurred mainly due to people’s carelessness. Most of them concerned boats violating Russian territory on Lake Peipus, or tourists visiting the border areas.

Recently I met a gentleman in my church who inquired about my accent. We found that we had something in common: Estonian heritage and work in space exploration. He introduced himself as Conrad Wells. His aunt was Melissa Wells, who served as the US ambassador to Estonia from 1998 to 1999. Melissa was of Estonian descent, and the daughter of a well know prewar singer Milizia Korjus.

Nestor interview

The Speaker of the Estonian Parliament Eiki Nestor was in Washington June 26-28 for a Nordic-Baltic Eight (NB8) conference to foster transatlantic relations. The NB8 includes Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden in a format that focuses on regional cooperation. Parliamentary speakers from all nations except Denmark took part in the visit.
