ERR News - Estonia's only professional sumo wrestler, Kaido Höövelson, aka Baruto, has unexpectedly announced that he is retiring from the sport.
The 28-year-old said the decision was motivated by a knee injury that has turned out to be more serious than originally thought, inhibiting him from using his full might against his opponents, reported "I can't do it with half power,“ he said.

ERR - Eesti Energia Technology Industries, a subsidiary of state-owned Eesti Energia, is planning to shut down its Narva factory by the end of November, moving production to a similar production facility in Jõhvi.
The move will mean that the current combined staff of the two factories will be downsized from 700 to 620, Postimees reported today.

Krusell said on the Statistics Estonia blog today that population figures were something to be joyful about in 2009 and 2010, with births outstripping deaths in 2010 for the first time in 20 years. But that trend reversed in 2011, and worsened last year, as the difference between births and deaths grew by more than twofold to 1,500.

Back then, coup and secession - now concepts seemingly confined to North Africa - didn't seem outside the realm of possibility in an era when Estonia, in the words of journalist Ainar Ruussaar, was "free but not finished."

"It's mystifying, the luck that Estonia has had," Ruussaar said on the July 22 edition of Pressiklubi, a show he hosts on Kuku Raadio. "Just consider that in July a group of armed men were not obeying orders from the central government."

ERR - A study coordinated by the London School of Economics and Political Science found that 41 percent of Estonia's children come into contact with Internet risks, the highest percentage in Europe.
