Cooler, Drink, Wine

Single Zone and Dual Zone wine cooler! Which one is best for you?

If you’re an intermittent wine drinker having a particular flavor for just reds or even whites, after that where you store your bottles isn’t an excessive amount of an issue. Wine coolers are little refrigerators created to maintain wine completely perfectly chilled till it’s prepared to drink. Presently there are some variants; however the most typical are single zone wine coolers and dual zone wine coolers. Single zone wine coolers are fairly simple.

Single Zone Wine Cooler:

If your enthusiasm is the single design of wine, these types of single zone wine coolers through the Pro sequence are ideal for maintaining much more of your preferred bottles saved in their perfect problems. Continue reading “Single Zone and Dual Zone wine cooler! Which one is best for you?”

As dreams are made on

We’re new. We put it in our name. When we stop looking ahead, remove the internal organs and inject formaldehyde; we’ll be dead. And yet a time comes when even a New Yorker realizes that, simply by staying put, in this world and in one spot, he has seen places that have vanished, and known people that no one can ever meet. Everyone is a historian, every life is a city.

Some things are better off gone. In Union Square today, farmers sell rutabagas, dogs run, guys fall off skateboards. They wouldn’t have dreamed of it 30 years ago. The lawn was dirt then, hollow-eyed muttering men offered “smokes,” the only diversions were occasional rallies of the Communist party. The infamy of the park was worldwide; my trainer remembers, from his youth in the islands, rap songs about Union Square and what went down there, all of it exciting, none of it good.

How to make a better pizza

Food scientists at the University of Maryland are working on ways to make pizza healthier to eat.
Jeffrey Moore, a doctoral student, says baking whole-wheat crust at higher temperatures, and for longer periods, can increase the antioxidants in the crust. So can letting the dough rise longer.
Diets rich in antioxidants — which are found in many fruits and vegetables — may help to protect against heart disease and cancer.
Mr. Moore experimented only with whole-wheat pizza because most of the antioxidants found in wheat are largely removed in refined flour. He says his findings are good news for fans of deep-dish pizza, since it takes longer to cook.

Parlor pizza, one of the great pickup meals

PIZZA, ONE OF the great pickup meals, is being claimed by gourmets and faddists. Restaurants under the influence of California are putting goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and onion confit on pizza and calling it nouvelle. So are trendy cooks, who are kneading exotically flavored doughs and declaring war on salty tomato sauce and stringy mozzarella. Is pizza actually better left to the familiar corner restaurants that satisfy late-night cravings with the contents of steaming, grease-spotted boxes? No. Whether you choose to copy an old favorite or go nouvelle, pizza is best when you make it at home.

Perhaps the main reason that homemade pizza is catching on is that even a klutz can make a good crust. Yeast dough invites abuse. It takes time, though, so it’s a good idea to make a lot and freeze it in individual portions. If you remember to defrost a package, you can pick up a few groceries or use leftovers and assemble a great pizza in a half hour. Or using another recipe you can start from scratch and in a half hour have a less-than-perfect pizza that’s still better than one from a store.

A Wine Glass Half Empty

America is producing more and better wine than ever, but hardly anyone’s drinking it

One of michael mondavi’s favorite stories, harking back to the dark ages of American wine drinking, takes place around 1969. The California winery he began with his father, Robert, was only three years old, and he was on the road pitching Cabernet Sauvignon to a doubtful citizenry. “I was in Des Moines, staying at the Adams Hotel, which had one of the better restaurants in town,” he recalls. “I went in for dinner and asked to see the wine list. The waiter said they had red or white, and I asked for red. He brought me a glass of port–that was their red wine. I thought, oh my God, do we have a big job.”

Campus cola wars: beverage giants battle for exclusivity rights

Imagine a town without Coke. At any convenience store or soda fountain, at every restaurant or bar or from any vending machine within the city limits of this fictional place, inhabitants can buy only products sold by Pepsi-Cola Canada Ltd.-no Coca-Cola, no Fruitopia drinks (bottled by Coke), and no beverages produced by small, independent companies. Now, envision another town just down the road where the same rules apply, only in reverse: Pepsi is out, Coke is it. Sound far-fetched? Well, for students at an increasing number of Canadian universities, the hegemony of a single soft drink is becoming a fact of life. Forget about shopping malls and TV advertising: the two giants of the soft-drink industry have mobilized their forces onto campuses, dunking it out for the right to sell their products to a captive audience. And the winners in these cola wars are determined not by taste tests-but by who has the deeper pockets.

Sounds that cool spark hot ideas, and how does an thermoacoustic engine work ?

There is an increasing possibility of using sound energy to run cooling systems for operating refrigerators and air conditioners. The use of thermoacoustics is attractive as it will be an alternative to added energy consumption. It will also eliminate the need for refrigerants which are not environment friendly. The history of the research and the future possibilities are presented.

The developing technology of thermoacoustics is showing that sound energy offers a relatively simple and environmentally friendly means to drive refrigerators, air conditioners, and other cooling systems.

A sound system has been catching the ear of refrigeration people, physicists, engineers, and business people the world over. No, it’s not the stereo of the future. It’s a system that employs a loudspeaker to power a refrigerator. Based on an approach called thermoacoustic refrigeration, it makes use of the energy in sound waves to provide cooling.

Heating and Cooling Cycles, Stirling and Thermoacoustic engine understanding

Have you ever heard about Heating and Cooling Cycles, do you know about Stirling and Thermoacoustic engine ? In this article will cover the stuffs.

The technologies used in most of the world’s cooling machinery are based on cycles (called thermodynamic cycles) of heating and cooling what is called a “working fluid.” In each cycle, the fluid (which may be a gas or a liquid) undergoes several steps:(1) compression, which raises its pressure and temperament;(2) heat rejection (expulsion);(3) expansion, which lowers its pressure and temperature; and (4) heat uptake from the material to be cooled. Work is done on the fluid to make it move heat energy from a region at a lower temperature to one at a higher temperature.
