Bond's Martinis Shaken by Alcohol Tremor?: - Medpage Today:

"The investigators concluded that Bond consumed more than four times the weekly recommended intake of alcohol, which regularly should have left the spy in such a besotted state that he could not possibly have accomplished all the feats attributed to him."

2013: The Year of the Fearless International Traveler | Peggy Goldman

2013: The Year of the Fearless International Traveler | Peggy Goldman:

"Our most impressive finding was this: Most travelers aren't letting anything get in the way of their international travel plans. Sixty percent of travelers that we surveyed reported that despite recent events such as cruise disasters or acts of terror, they feel as safe traveling now as they did five years ago. Moreover, 55 percent reported that these events haven't impacted their travel abroad."

Tiger Woods delights Brandel Chamblee with course-record-tying 62 at Sherwood CC - SBNation.com

Tiger Woods delights Brandel Chamblee with course-record-tying 62 at Sherwood CC - SBNation.com:

"Woods was not a particularly generous host, as he fired a second-round 10-under 62 to take charge of his Northwestern Mutual World Challenge and leave his 17 star-studded guests looking up in admiration of the 36-hole leader’s 10-birdie, 0-bogey play.
"It was a clinic," Graeme McDowell told Reuters about his playing partner, who left the defending champion, who carded a respectable 67, in his dust as he tied the course record he set in 2007. "It was cool to see that kind of golf. He was under control. He hit it down the middle of every fairway.""

"In other words, what we’ve come to call terroir is not only the result of the specifics of place — cold mornings, or high limestone content in the soil — but also the microscopic life that thrives on and around the grapes themselves."

Why couples who drink (or abstain) together, stay together: Those with one heavy drinker are more likely to divorce | Mail Online:

" ‘Our results indicate that it is the difference between the couple's drinking habits, rather than the drinking itself, that leads to marital dissatisfaction, separation and divorce,’ said Kenneth Leonard, PhD, RIA director and lead author of the study."

Israeli Wine Cellar Predates the Bible : Discovery News:

"One of the world’s oldest and largest wine cellars has just been unearthed in Israel, according to a presentation today at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research in Baltimore.

The cellar dates to approximately 1700 B.C., and was found at a site called Tel Kabri within the ruins of a northern Canaanite city. Its age predates both the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls by hundreds of years."

China's Cruise Industry is Growing Fast - Quartz

Image name: cruise ship.
Photographer: Jon Sullivan.
Quartz:

"The growth is due not only to China’s rapidly growing travel market, but to the country’s location near small, attractive islands. The cruise industry is poised to take advantage of the nearby landscape much as it has taken over the Caribbean islands near the United States.

"There’s good weather here, lots of islands to visit and a lot of experiences. ..."

"After nine years of fits and starts, Mr. Branson was in California showing off the spaceships that are now being built and tested. "This is the start of a new space era," he says. "This is not the endgame." But he admits there are skeptics of his grand plan to send tourists into space. "There are plenty of people who think I should be taken off by men in white jackets for saying it, but I really do actually believe it," he says."

Experts dismiss prediction of global wine shortage - SFGate

Experts dismiss prediction of global wine shortage - SFGate:

"Confusion abounds over a prediction that a wine shortage could be looming.

A Morgan Stanley report released this week said worldwide wine demand exceeded supply by nearly 300 million cases in 2012. The study blamed the shortfall, the greatest in 40 years, on bad weather and fewer vineyards, and it added there may not be enough wine in future years.

But don't start hoarding your wine, because analysts are seeing it differently."
