The National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, near the Blue Ridge Mountains in southwestern Virginia, commemorated the 66th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy on Sunday, June 6.  Bedford was selected for the National D-Day memorial because the town suffered the greatest per capita loss of life of any U.S. town during the Normandy invasion during World War II. 
The memorial includes statues of western Allied leaders, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Harry Truman.  Normally, a memorial honoring D-Day, when 66 years ago over 160,000 troops from the United States, Britain, France and Canada stormed the beaches of Normandy, would cause little consternation.  However, the memorial also includes a new statue – a bust of dictator Joseph Stalin - a source of considerable controversy.

On the morning of Thursday, June 10, representatives of embassies, ethnic organizations and groups, the Congress, and individuals gathered at the Victims of Communism Memorial at the intersection of New Jersey Ave. and Massachusetts Ave., NW, in Washington, DC, to commemorate the more than 100 million victims of communism. The Memorial was dedicated on June 12, 2007, by President George W. Bush, and is visited frequently by officials, diplomats, and individuals who wish to honor these victims.

There are usually disadvantages and various degrees of unpleasantness involved in showing up late to a party. It all depends on how late you arrive. Just an hour or two late, and the appetizers tray is either empty or you have to settle for slim pickins’. Several hours late, and you have two choices. You can once again discover how silly inebriated people are, which gets old quick, or you can boost your alcohol intake to catch up with the others. If you’re very late, arriving in the early morning hours, the house will likely be in disarray, and many partygoers will have left or nodded off on the sofa.

In addition to trading, it is also possible to take part in excursions, hear songs about the sea, and watch seamen's games and competitions.

14 May (BNS) - New social media mediums have been winning growing support among Estonian MPs and one third of them have Facebook accounts, Esto-nian parliament Speaker Ene Ergma said at a European Union parliament speakers' conference in Stockholm on May 14.

Ergma's speech at the conference was on the issue of new technologies and communication channels. She said that the Internet had given politicians the channel and the opportunity to distribute direct and unmediated information. As a result, the citizens had received the opportunity to take part in different stages of the decision-making process and to influence its results. Participation and involvement had become much faster and more widespread thanks to the new opportunities.

FM Review, May 6, - Meeting with executive secretary of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) Tibor Toth in New York, Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that Estonia supports the work of the CTBTO in building up a verification regime for nuclear testing.

Paet stated that an effective monitoring system helps to achieve security regarding the appropriate use of nuclear energy and nuclear testing. “Uniting the restriction of nuclear arms and the ban on nuclear testing is necessary to increase the nuclear safety of the world, but it must happen alongside global security measures with monitoring systems being made more effective,” said Paet. “Building up the system will hopefully give additional security to nations that have not yet joined the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). It is essential that the international community be provided with information on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy,” noted the Estonian foreign minister.
