SNOWBIRD, Utah – Katie Vesterstein led the Utah ski team with a pair of second place finishes and helped Utah finish the day in first place at the RMISA Invitational hosted by Westminster in the slalom after two races at Snowbird.


 "Everyone has been working through a bunch of stuff, and for all of them to go out and finish the four runs and for our girls to win the day was really impressive," head alpine coach JJ Johnson said.

PM's Economic Adviser Sees Situation as Optimistic


In order to reduce the greatest budget deficit ever, Estonia could look at cutting certain assistance and support programs as the corona crisis recedes, Ardo Hansson, a Chicago-born economic adviser to Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and former Eesti Pank governor said.

The Joint Baltic American National Committee, Inc. (JBANC) has launched a new online platform “The Baltic Journey to NATO: Exploring the role of civil society, diaspora, governments, and media, which highlights the milestones of the events that led to a successful NATO enlargement and membership for Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.”

 

The project is supported by a NATO Public Diplomacy Division grant. The site is accessible at: https://jbanc.org/nato.


The exhibit features a timeline of key dates and events that led to the Baltic inclusion into NATO in 2004 and explores a variety of decisions made by the Baltic and the U.S. governments.

The largest project for Estonians abroad in more than a generation is set to break ground this February.


The new Estonian Centre (to be located at 9 and 11 Madison Avenue in downtown Toronto) will consolidate the largest Estonian community in Canada.

laud kaetud

On 4. veebruar, also known as hundi/kuu, wolf month, (Estonia's rahvus/loom, national animal), the Estonian Weather Service's lume/kaart (snow map) showed Tallinn as having 30 cm on the ground. This never happens in one huge (s)torm à la nor'easters on the Eastern seaboard, but has accumulated steadfastly as mere/efekti (sea effect) snow over the course of many weeks of sub-zero weather, set to continue. It's nature's gift to kids and winter sports lovers of all ages in an otherwise compromised time.   Foto: Ülle Mesikäpp

 

"Laud on kaetud!" writes jewelry artist Ülle Mesikäpp from her home in the Tallinn suburb of Nõmme. Katma lauda = to set the table in preparation for a meal and when the laud is kaetud, you're welcome to take a seat (asuma lauda, võtma istet). Katma is also simply to cover. This table is covered. With snow. And set. (Ready, set, go! = Tähelepanu, valmis olla, läks!)
