Festive wines and the choices

first_imgLinkedin Twitter WhatsApp Facebook Print NewsFestive wines and the choicesBy admin – December 11, 2008 711 center_img There’s a host of wines on offer this week, so the options for Christmas are far and wide. With the release of the great Beaujolais nouveau range coming late last month, the thoughts of sampling the delights of the 100 per cent gamay grape wines is something that pleases many. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up As the nights grow darker and longer, people across the country are settling down in front of the fire with a glass of a juicy Cru as the perfect match to their evening meal. Sublime served gently chilled, these lighter bodied red wines have a sumptuous, fruity aroma and an appetising acidity followed by a refreshing rush in the mouth – a touch of summer in the darkness of winter.Here’s a pick of the best for winter nights or the Christmas table. All wines are available through local stockists and independent retailers.By Beaujolais1) Moulin-à-Vent Les Michelons 2007 Louis Latour * Bronze medal IWC 2007Les Michelons is a single vineyard chosen by Maison Louis Latour for its ideal southerly exposure and gently inclined slope. Fresh aromas of strawberry and raspberry develop on the palate, which is smoky, rich and warm. Of all the Crus Beaujolais, this is most capable of extended ageing. 12.992) Brouilly 2006 Domaine des Maison NeuvesFrom a quality-conscious grower that eschews the use of herbicides to give healthier vines and lower, more concentrated yields. A deep coloured wine, showing great finesse and fruit intensity. Ripe berry and currant flavours, soft tannins and balanced acidity on the finish. Ideal with white meat dishes. 9.993) Beaujolais-Villages 2006 Domaine des NuguesFermented in the traditional Beaujolais style using Carbonic Maceration, this wine shows a deep ruby colour, aromas of red fruits and spices, and has a pleasant finish. Made for immediate enjoyment. 9.994) Chénas 2006 Cave du Château de ChénasFrom a co-operative whose cellars, dating back to the 17th century, providing ideal conditions for barrel maturation. The excellent 2005 vintage has given a wine with a deep purple core, a nose of ripe red cherries and red currants and soft, ripe tannins on the palate. Full-bodied for a Chénas, with crisp, balanced acidity. 9.99On option of bubbles5) [yellow tail] BUBBLESThis fresh and fragrant sparkling wine leaps from the glass to tickle and tantalize the senses. Flavours of tropical fruits combine perfectly with medium sweetness and a delightfully crisp finish. This luscious and lively wine will complement all occasions. You could enjoy Bubbles as an aperitif. 14.99A taste of ItalyReverting back to Italy and here’s a brace of wines from the Cusumano range based in Sicily and available through some independent retailers. 6) Cusumano Insolia Sicilia 2007Light and floral on the nose with wildflower and some say faint butter cookie followed by ripe tropical fruit, especially mature pineapple. It finishes with a slight creaminess typical to Cusumano’s single varietal selections. Think of Inzolia somewhere between Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, but with an easy drinking personality all its own. 12.497) Cusumano Nero D’Avola 2006Positively brimming with aromas of morello cherry, blackberry jam and juniper berries on the nose, the palate is hearty and vaguely spicy with soft, generous tannins and a powerful, bitter cherry finish. 12.49 Email Advertisement Previous articleSometimes its the stuffing that’s the bestNext article‘Those tied into criminality are losing their souls’ – Fr Egan adminlast_img read more

Second suspect in killing of 7-year-old Texas girl denies involvement in shooting: Attorney

first_imgFedorovekb/iStock(HOUSTON) — A man suspected of firing the shots that killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes as she rode in a car in Houston with her mother and sisters has denied any involvement in the tragic episode, his attorney said Thursday.Larry Woodruffe, 24, was arraigned Thursday in a Houston courtroom on a capital murder charge and a judge ruled there is probable cause to hold him for trial.Woodruffe is the second suspect charged with capital murder in the case. His alleged accomplice, Eric Black Jr., 20, who was charged last week, allegedly told investigators that he was driving a rental car when Woodruffe opened fire on the vehicle occupied by Jazmine and her family.Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has said that Jazmine and her family were targeted in a case of “mistaken identity.”Lisa Andrews, Woodruffe’s court-appointed attorney, said Woodruffe denies any involvement in the killing and that he told police he was not in the car with Black when Jazmine was shot.Andrews noted that the only person who has identified Woodruffe as the shooter is Black.“I can tell you, the only person who says that is the person who got charged first. My experience is that people have a big motive to get themselves out of hot water,” Andrews told reporters following Thursday’s court hearing.Jazmine’s life was cut short on Dec. 30, when a gunman opened fire on her family’s car in northwest Houston. Jazmine, who was sitting in the backseat, was shot in the head and killed, while her mother, LaPorsha Washington, was wounded in the left arm.The Harris County Sheriff’s Office launched a massive manhunt for a suspect initially described by Jazmine’s 15-year-old sister Alxis and three other independent witnesses as a white man driving a red pickup truck.But a tip shared with social justice activist and journalist Shaun King led to a stunning break in the case last week and helped investigators identify Black and Woodruffe as suspects in Jazmine’s death, authorities said.Following his arrest, police say Black directed police to a 9mm handgun at his house that was used in the killing.“It is my experience that after 20 years of doing criminal law on both sides that shooters don’t give up their gun and that gun [Black] led the cops to was at his house, not my client’s,” Andrews said. “So I think that’s pretty telling, but we’ll have to see what the evidence shows down the road.”Black’s court-appointed attorney, Alvin Nunnery, did not respond to requests for comment from ABC News.During Thursday’s hearing, Andrews filed a motion for a change of venue due to pre-trial publicity. She also asked Judge Latosha Lewis to remind prosecutors of their “ethical responsibilities regarding pre-trial publicity.”“Specifically, my concerns are that some of our local leaders are taking steps, posting things on social media that I believe are unprofessional and inappropriate given their position of investigating the case and prosecuting the case. It’s causing a lot of negative feelings, publicity and I believe that it is prejudicing the potential jury pool,” Andrews said.She also suggested that it was inappropriate for Sheriff Gonzalez to speak at Jazmine’s funeral on Tuesday.“While that’s a heartwarming gesture … he’s still the person in charge of investigating this case and actions like that don’t seem objective or unbiased,” Andrews said.Tom Berg, the first assistant district attorney in Harris County, described Andrews’ court motions as “premature.”“By the time this case comes to trial we expect to be able to draw a fair panel and get a fair jury for a fair trial,” Berg told reporters. “We intend to try this case on the evidence and from the extent that the defendants have anything to be concerned about it’s going to be on the evidence that’s presented before a jury in this case and not tweets that were made months earlier by other people unrelated to it.”The high-profile shooting case prompted an outpouring of support for Jazmine’s loved ones from people across the nation, including celebrities like Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal and actresses Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde.O’Neal and Hopkins helped cover the expense of Jazmine’s funeral.O’Neal told ABC News Radio on Wednesday that he was disturbed by Jazmine’s death and wanted to take action.“Funerals… ten, fifteen thousand [dollars], that’s not going to hurt me, but for people to have to try to scrum money together to bury their little, beautiful daughter… nobody should ever have to go through that. So, I didn’t want them to have to go through that… It was just the right thing to do,” O’Neal said.“I’m watching the news, and I saw the story, and it just touched my heart,” he said. “And I saw how devastated that mom was. And then to end the story… they had to raise money for the funeral? I can’t have that.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Sugimoto-curated 79th floor at 432 Park quietly hits market

first_imgShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Tags432 park avenueBillionaires RowHarry MackloweManhattan SalesNYC Luxury MarketResidential Real Estate Full Name* (Engel & Völkers Market Center, 432 Park)“Among the clouds, at one thousand feet, exists an inner floating garden,” reads the first line of the Engel & Völkers Mercedes Berk team’s off-market listing at 432 Park Avenue.The image seems out of place, borderline absurd, to pair with the rigidly square footprint and design of Harry Macklowe’s controversial supertall. But for the wealthy couple who bought the unfinished 79th floor for $59 million in 2016, that was the point.The pair spent years transforming it into a homage to Japanese workmanship and culture. Now they are looking for a buyer.The couple hired Hiroshi Sugimoto to build out the 8,000-square-foot box of raw space. Apparently sparing no expense, the acclaimed Japanese artist and architect imported specialty materials including weather-beaten stones from Kyoto, and old growth Canadian Hinoki Cypress wood.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreVince Viola’s $25.5M mansion sale breaks Brooklyn recordWho’s buying and selling Manhattan homes? Last month’s notable dealsSecret listings soarcenter_img Message* Share via Shortlink He flew in artisans skilled in traditional, high-specialized Japanese building techniques such as the application of a lime-based plaster called shikkui, which is applied to walls horizontally by multiple craftsmen in simultaneous coordination.“Everything has a meaning that’s in the apartment,” said Noel Berk, one of the listing agents. “It’s a piece of art to live in.”The wood flooring in the condo’s master bedroom is hand-carved, the kitchen cabinets are made from hand-hammered metal, and the apartment is compartmentalized by floating walls allowing for the movement of the pendulum-laden tower.Beyond materials and construction, Sugimoto designed the five-bedroom apartment to open into entertaining areas first, a traditional tearoom, then a large dining room, which includes a sushi bar that was manned by a chef Sugimoto personally selected for his clients, according to a profile by Architectural Record.The architect also custom-designed furniture for every room and installed his artwork and photographs through the space in a series of site-specific installations.But Berk said the apartment maintains a livable and comfortable atmosphere.“It’s big enough to have huge parties and quiet enough to find a corner and read a book,” she said.The intensive renovation finished in 2018 and now the owners, an American family who are “very serious collectors of contemporary Asian art,” are looking to sell the apartment because they’re moving too far away to keep it up, Berk said.The broker worked with the sellers when they initially bought the unit in 2016. Now she and her team are beginning to show the apartment to a select pool of high-end brokers and art-world figures. She doesn’t have an asking price.“We could not put a price on it,” said Berk, citing all the custom finishes and furnishings that would come with the sale. She also noted that Sugimoto hopes to have a relationship with a new owner.A full-floor unit three flights up is asking for $90 million.“The price will be determined by the person who walks in and says ‘This is my home and I want to live this way in New York City,’” Berk explained. “It’s for a unique buyer who’s looking for something very different.”There’s been an uptick in off-market transactions in recent years. Several notable sales were handled without public listings over the last several months, including billionaire Vincent Viola’s Brooklyn Heights mansion.Contact Erin Hudsonlast_img read more

Statistical analysis of thermospheric gravity waves from Fabry-Perot Interferometer measurements of atomic oxygen

first_imgData from the Fabry-Perot Interferometers at KEOPS (Sweden), Sodankylä (Finland), and Svalbard (Norway), have been analysed for gravity wave activity on all the clear nights from 2000 to 2006. A total of 249 nights were available from KEOPS, 133 from Sodankylä and 185 from the Svalbard FPI. A Lomb-Scargle analysis was performed on each of these nights to identify the periods of any wave activity during the night. Comparisons between many nights of data allow the general characteristics of the waves that are present in the high latitude upper thermosphere to be determined. Comparisons were made between the different parameters: the atomic oxygen intensities, the thermospheric winds and temperatures, and for each parameter the distribution of frequencies of the waves was determined. No dependence on the number of waves on geomagnetic activity levels, or position in the solar cycle, was found. All the FPIs have had different detectors at various times, producing different time resolutions of the data, so comparisons between the different years, and between data from different sites, showed how the time resolution determines which waves are observed. In addition to the cutoff due to the Nyquist frequency, poor resolution observations significantly reduce the number of short-period waves (5 h) detected. Comparisons between the number of gravity waves detected at KEOPS and Sodankylä over all the seasons showed a similar proportion of waves to the number of nights used for both sites, as expected since the two sites are at similar latitudes and therefore locations with respect to the auroral oval, confirming this as a likely source region. Svalbard showed fewer waves with short periods than KEOPS data for a season when both had the same time resolution data. This gives a clear indication of the direction of flow of the gravity waves, and corroborates that the source is the auroral oval. This is because the energy is dissipated through heating in each cycle of a wave, therefore, over a given distance, short period waves lose more energy than long and dissipate before they reach their target.last_img read more

Semitic Museum to offer touch tours

first_imgStepping expectantly into a museum gallery with a vast skylight overhead, the men and the Harvard student guide pause before a statue of an Assyrian king. Emily Axelsen ’23 is leading her first Touch Tour at the Harvard Semitic Museum, a beta-test of the new free program for adults with visual impairments.“We’re in a rectangular room with 12 resin slabs on the walls,” Axelsen begins to describe “From Stone to Silicone.” She explains that the slabs are precise copies of 3,000-year-old original stone carvings that once adorned the palace of King Ashurnasirpal II in Nimrud, near modern-day Mosul in Iraq. Axelsen’s visitors may touch the panels, and handle several models and a 3D-printed replica of the Ashurnasirpal statue, rather than the original.She continues, “Each panel tells a story, and shows the roles of kings. The first one is called ‘Hunting Lions from a Chariot.’ Would you like to explore it first or would you like me to explain it first?”Howard Sumner, a retired medical device executive who started to lose his sight at age 62 and now describes his vision as “extremely blind,” asks for an explanation first. Sumner is among the 38 million Americans over age 40 who are blind, visually impaired, or have an age-related eye disease. He and his sighted friend Bill Cooney are both experienced museum visitors, and among the first to provide feedback on the tour.Axelsen is an experienced guide, having led New-York Historical Society groups for three summers, but she has never given tours for visually impaired people until now. Polly Hubbard, director of education for the Harvard Semitic Museum said, “Creating tours for visitors with vision loss benefits the growing population of elders and fits our mission to make the museums accessible to a widely diverse audience. Practicing these accommodations in one exhibit can help us get better at designing our next projects with this audience in mind.” To develop a tour “script” and strategies, Hubbard researched disability resources, sought guidance from other museums, and recruited beta testers through the Harvard Disability Office.Sumner appreciates that the tour lasts an hour, explaining that longer tours can be exhausting. Asked to recommend improvements to the Semitic Museum’s tour, he first compliments Axelson’s performance, then wonders if a fabric sample might be available, similar to the king’s robe, or a sound sample of the musicians depicted in the art.  Based on Sumner’s recommendations, Hubbard located an appropriate musical excerpt, but identifying an accurate fabric sample was a challenge. In all, Sumner is pleased with the tour so far, and says, “It’s a good time to be blind, compared to what it must have been like 50 years ago.”Harvard Semitic Museum Touch Tours will be offered to people with low vision during fall and spring semesters starting Feb. 9, 2020.last_img read more
