9 July (BNS) - Smartpost, which has created a high-tech parcel delivery system in Estonia during the past two years, has signed a contract for the sale of its network to the Finnish logistics company Itella Corporation in order to fully dedicate expansion to foreign markets. By a mutual agreement, the parties will not disclose the price of the transaction, the companies said on July 9.

In the future, Smartpost will focus on its main activity – the development of parcel delivery software and hardware and its sale to foreign countries. Use of the Smartpost trademark in Estonia will pass to Itella. The employees connected with the provision of parcel delivery services will also continue in Itella. Itella will set up a new company, OU Itella Smartpost, to continue providing the parcel delivery services in Estonia.

The eastern diaspora of Estonians is constantly declining. In Russia, where the number of ethnic Estonians is the largest, the decline is happening as a result of a big share of elderly people in the ethnic Estonian population and assimilation of the younger generation.

Olive Films is proud to present the US Theatrical Release of THE TEMPTATION OF ST. TONY (Püha Tõnu kiusamine), a film by Velko Õunpuu. This film premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and screened at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.

THE TEMPTATION OF ST. TONY will open in New York at Cinema Village on September 17, and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Sunset 5 on October 1.  Other cities will follow.

To appreciate Veiko Õunpuu’s artful tale of moral confusion, let’s begin where he does—with Dante’s Inferno: "Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark."

12 July (BNS) - According to July 12 issue of the Times, Sofi Oksanen, a Finnish writer of Estonian roots, is becoming as popular a writer as the Swede Stig Larsson.

The Times wrote that although Oksanen has sold only a few hundred thousand copies of her books compared with Larsson's millions, her popularity is increasing.
