ERR News - On June 9, European Union ministers approved a compromise made by the European Parliament and Council of the EU to establish the headquarters of the EU's IT-agency in Tallinn.
Estonia and France had been tussling over the rights to host the new agency until they reached a sharing agreement last year. The body will be inaugurated in 2012.
Media outlets had earlier reported that Tallinn's bid to host the agency's headquarters was a done deal, however the June 9 decision made at the Justice and Home Affairs Council meeting in Luxembourg makes it official.

On May 17th the Estonian Pavilion (Pantiero 212) at the Cannes Festival 2011 celebrated the international film project 60 Seconds of Solitude in Year Zero, a non-profit project dedicated to preserve the freedom of cinema in 35mm film.
60 directors from around the world will each contribute a one-minute cinematic postcard to be screened on Tallinn Bay, alongside Baltic Sea at the end of August 2011.
The film itself will be sacrificed through fire during projection, and will be never screened again. This is not an act of defiance, but as a love poem, it will be only seen and read once.

ERR News -A poll conducted in Russia found that 30 percent of those surveyed consider Estonia among the most hostile nations to their country, making it the fifth least friendly to the Russian Federation in their eyes.
The nationwide survey, which was conducted in May by the Levada-Center pollsters, asked respondents to name the five nations that they considered the most friendly to Russia, and the five least friendly, Interfax reported.

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.
