ERR News - Enefit has taken steps to produce the first batch of American-sourced shale oil and measurement results are expected soon. The Estonian company - the international arm of the state power company Eesti Energia  – has to prove the shale quality is acceptable in order to launch oil production in the US. American oil shale is different from the Estonian natural resource and its suitability for oil production has to be tested. The process is taking place in Germany, where 600 tonnes of Utah oil shale were transported for testing.


ERR News -A newly published University of Tartu doctoral thesis has concluded that Estonians and Finns, despite having similar languages, are genetically less related than Estonians are to Latvians, Lithuanians, Poles and northwestern Russians. Nevertheless, Estonians are still the closest genetic relatives that the Finns have, reported Postimees. In the study, Tõnu Esko and others compared the DNA sequences of 16 European ethnicities. Of the DNA sets analyzed, those most distantly related to Estonians were the Italians, French, Spanish, and Finns in northern Kuusamo region. "Estonians' greater genetic similarity to Latvians and Lithuanians than to Finns has been known from previous classical blood studies, but this study is the first to show our genetic relation in such depth,“ said Esko. "Since the 13th century we have been ruled by the Germans, Swedes, Poles and Russians,“ said Esko. "In addition to that, the Estonian territory has historically been divided in Estonia and Livonia - the latter is today northern Latvia and southern Estonia. It natural for there to be mixing on the border of two nations.“


ERR News - In search of fresh impetus, Olympic discus thrower Gerd Kanter announced on October 24, that he will part ways with his current trainer and team coach in November. "I have firmly decided to continue my athletic road for at least until 2016 and for this period as well I have set myself the maximum goals. I believe that some changes need to be made for the Olympic cycle that is beginning, and now after a successful season, it is a good time to make them.“


ERR News - After being cast out of the Reform Party on October 24, Silver Meikar warned of continuing corruption in the political landscape. "Unfortunately, I was not invited to the meeting and no justification was provided [for the decision]," Meikar wrote in his blog on Wednesday. "It is not right for a liberal party to shun substantive internal debate and launch disciplinary actions against those who draw attention to problems,“ he said.


"G () D () T." A World Premiere absurdist comedy After watching Samuel Beckett's classic of the Theatre of the Absurd, "Waiting for Godot," one always asks . . . "What was Godot actually doing while Vladimir and Estragon were waiting for him?" The World Premiere of "G ( ) D ( ) T" explores that intriguing question. Godot has decisions to make. How will they ultimately affect the fates of V and E (as the new play refers to Vladimir and Estragon)? 


The first weekend in October offered Los Angeles Estonian music lovers a wonderful event.  At the Filter Magazine Culture Collide Festival, Ewert and The Two Dragons, which is gaining significant popularity momentum in Europe, hit the concert stage "boards" to perform for the audience.  For the next two days, our Estonian boys gave three concerts giving opportunities for many Southern California Estonians to revel in their music.


My wife and I spent a week in our nation’s capital! The draw was the celebration of 60 years of the Estonian American National Council’s (EANC) work on behalf of Estonia’s struggle for independence and of the work to maintain the Estonian community’s cultural heritage in the United States. But we used this trip also to take a broader view of where we have been and where we are heading.
