As many as of 37 percent of 15- to 24-year-olds have tried marijuana, which is 11 percent more than the European average, a recent study conducted by the Saar Poll survey company revealed.
Young people can easily acquire marijuana (also known as cannabis), said Nelli Kalikova, project manager at the Aids Information and Support Center. "It's about the same as buying ice cream," she added.

The Thomas Keller Medal committee is delighted to announce that the 2011 Thomas Keller Medal, rowing's highest distinction, will this year be awarded to Estonian rowing legend Jueri Jaanson. The 18-carat gold medal shall be awarded on Sunday 10 July on the medal pontoon of the Samsung World Rowing Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Throughout his long career Jaanson took part in no less than six Olympic Games. He holds five World Champion-ship medals, including one gold from 1990 in Lake Barrington, Australia and a silver which he won when racing in Finland in 1995. Driven by his urge to win an Olympic medal, Jaanson had to keep rowing until 2004 before reaching the Olympic podium, taking silver first in Athens in the single scull and four years later, in Beijing in 2008 in the men's double sculls.

Strolling through Tallin
n Thursday night on the way to Nokia Concert Hall, it seemed almost a sin to duck into a dark auditorium for a program of music.

The units were established in 1993 and 1999 respectively, back when the bank was a 100 percent Estonian-owned entity called Hansapank. Hansa-pank was acquired by Swedbank in 2004.

ERR News -A rail project linking the Baltics from Tallinn to the Polish border is a realistic possibility, but will require 4,000 passengers a day, 440 million euros in state backing and 2 billion euros from the EU, according to a new feasibility study.

Besides the passenger numbers and EU and national money, the project would be justified by annual freight volume of 9 million tons.
