ERR News - Research commissioned by the Archimedes Foundation, an independent body tasked with implementing national education programs, has found that difficulty in getting residence permits is prompting many foreign students to pass up the chance to study in Estonia.
The foundation's “Study in Estonia” analysis concluded that efforts to attract an international student body to the nation's universities are being hindered as complicated and time-consuming visa and residence permit procedures steer candidates to other countries.

ERR News - The University of Tartu's computer science institute has received a grant from one of the world's largest web service providers - 6,500 euros worth of computing power on Amazon's servers.
Senior researcher at the Institute of Computer Science's distributed systems group, Satish Srirama said access to Amazon's servers is valuable to the students due to the possibility of seeing for themselves the theory applied in practice.

It is a lot of work straightening up a farm, even when you don’t have animals other than a couple of dogs and cats. In the first weeks of the spring thaw, when the snow melts all the broken bottles, cans, lids and whatever has been hidden all over the place, come to light. These dangerous and gnarly things will only be visible for a week or so, so if you’re going to do anything, it has to be done right away because the weeds will grow up, through, and around, everything making it impossible to find them again in a couple of weeks. Usually I have solved this problem, by ignoring it all, but not this year. One of the problems of getting rid of junk is determining just what is junk. The Estonian saying, perhaps I will need it later has a very strong influence on me. 

On May 12th, in Royal Albert Hall, London, Arvo Pärt received the Composer of the Year award on the annual Classic Brit Awards gala.
The composer was there to collect his award and also to  make a speech, in which he expressed his appreciation towards Classic Brit Awards and his country.
Here Mr. Pärt words:

Research shows that  shrinking sea ice has caused Arctic phytoplankton to bloom an average of 50 days earlier than 14 years ago.
Climate researchers have long warned that the Artic is particularly vulnerable to global warning. A new report finds that the disappearing ice has apparently triggered another dramatic event – one that could disrupt the entire ecosystem of fish, shellfish, birds and marine mammals that thrive in the harsh northern climate.

May 10, 2011, Tallinn - This morning, visiting Maryland National Guard Adjutant General, Major General James A. Adkins, presented the United States Legion of Merit Medal to Brigadier General Meelis Kiili of the Estonian Defense Forces (EDF). The medal was presented in recognition of Brigadier General Kiili's outstanding performance during his tenure as the Estonian Defense Attaché in the United States from May 2008 through August 2010.  The Legion of Merit is among the highest military awards the U.S. can bestow.  

The two performances will be held Wednesday, May 11 at 8:00 pm at St. Joseph’s Church (371 Sixth Avenue between Waverly Place and Washington Place) and Sunday, May 15 at 3:00 pm at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church (921 Madison Avenue at E. 73rd Street).
The Russian Chamber Chorus of New York (Nikolai Kachanov, Artistic Director and Conductor) will present the first concert of a new series, Russia and Beyond: Music from Former Soviet Republics. Acclaimed for its performances of well-known and rarely-performed Russian choral works, RCCNY displays its broader scope, with music from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania—as well as New York premieres from Russia and Tuva — that helped keep local and regio-nal identities alive, despite the Communist regime.

ERR News - Sixty percent of Estonian youths want to continue their education abroad after finishing high school, and only 46 percent want to come back home, according to a poll conducted by Dream Foundation, an organization that offers study abroad programs.
Of the 1,216 high school and trade school students, who were polled between October and March, only 10 percent believed that Estonia can offer them the higher education they desire.
