‘Trump Gabbard 2016’, tweeted Ilves saying: ‘Your [sic] the President of Estonia – why in heck are you tweeting in English? Use your own language MATE!’
Ilves replied: ‘”You’re” not “your”. Estonians know English, others don’t generally know Estonian. Quod erat demonstrandum.’

GERMAN: Die schnellsten Drillinge der Welt
Das estnische “Trio für Rio” sorgt für DIE Überraschung des Sport-Sommers
ENGLISH: The Luik triplets from Estonia – the sports surprise this summer.
The third sister Lily was injured at that time and could not participate.
Luxurious bookbinding in the Art Nouveau style made for the collection of poems (Tartu; 1904) of the Estonian poet Ado Reinvald. The author of the the dark-green morocco binding is an Estonian bookbinding master Peeter Kippik (1880-1925) who worked in Tartu and later owned a bindery in St. Petersburg, Russia. The decoration is in the technique of intarsia and old tooling. The edges are gilt, ornamented and coloured with the enamel, the doublure and the fly leaf are made of moiré silk. The two bookbindings by Peeter Kippik held in the National Library of Estonia are the only known works by this master in Estonia.

Chancellor Angela Merkel still believes in a European solution to the refugee crisis. But of 160,000 refugees originating from Greece and Italy 1000 have hardly moved in.
Particularly in Eastern Europe there is resistance. Hungary and Slovakia do not participate even in the distribution plan. Poland swerved after the terrorist attacks in Brussels.
Estonia in contrast is committed to European solidarity. The Baltic state, with the area of Lower Saxony (a state in Germany) and with 1.3 million inhabitants as big as Munich (capital of the state Bavaria) will absorb 550 refugees in the next two years. But only now the first refugees from Greece arrive. There are only seven people – a family with three school-aged children from Iraq, a retail merchant from Syria and a journalist from Yemen. …” Read more in German via link above.
