BENEFITS OF WINE

For a layman, understanding its benefits and cons seem to be outright boring but if you ever find yourself in a party and want to make a lasting impression, here are five facts that might or might not lighten up the mood.


Facts About Wine & Benefits of Wine:

We should be thanking the monks for their research as they preserved and innovated the art of winemaking during the middle ages.

Often alcohol beverages are associated with lethargy but according to a study, women who drink 2 glasses of wine daily actually have a better sex drive than other women.

  1. Wine names are based on their geographical location or grape varieties

Many famous European wines are named after their geographical location; one example is the Bordeaux wine. Non-European wines usually have a name of the grape (aka the varietal) on the label – for instance, Cabernet Sauvignon from California.

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
