In September, Alvar Soosaar began his term as Director of U.S. investment and Trade out of the Embassy in Washington, DC.

 

His naming came as part of the expansion of Estonia’s business diplomacy efforts in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


“I look forward to devoting my time, effort, and network full-time to growing Estonia’s exports to, and investment from, the United States,” said Soosaar. “It was time for me to contribute back to a country that has given me and my family so much, a country that has world-class companies and products that it wants to share.”

Tervitused Seattlest,
The Seattle Estonian Society and West Coast Estonian Days (LEP) organizing committee have a few announcements that we would like to share.


First, in light of the current COVID-19 crisis, Seattle LEP 2021 will be postponed.

 

But do not worry, Seattle will be hosting the 35th LEP when it is safe for us all to gather together once again.

On August 5, Undercurrent launched “10001,” a collaborative virtual project that continues through September 12.

 

This project is co-organized by the European Union National Institutes of Culture’s New York Cluster.


Borrowing the zip code from both the Empire State Building and New York City’s Central Post Office, “10001” focuses on the collaboration of strangers and the narrative of their collective creative process using New York City as the linchpin.

The Estonian community in Los Angeles is built upon the work of the generations that came before us, those whose work was dedicated to preserving our language and culture in this place far from our homeland. On September 2, we lost Boris Auksmann, whose hand was in practically everything Estonians did and have done in Southern California.


Boris Auksmann is probably the most intelligent person whom I have ever met.

 

He earned a PhD in engineering, held a teaching position at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), then later worked as a court expert on accident reconstructions.

What do you write someone when there is no chance you are going to see each other within a short span of time?

 

What are you going to write when borders are closed and the person you would like to contact is out of reach?

 

Does everything come down to the basic question: how are you?
