"Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it."

Beauty

Popular phrases define beauty as 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' or 'beauty is only skin deep.' But the question is: Should we define beauty by what we see in the media or by popular culture and trends?

We often do not have a clear view of what beauty is. We use different life experiences and memories we have and blend them to form our own definition of our beauty.

Misguided definition of beauty

Our definition of beauty is often formed in three ways:

  • As young children, our opinion of beauty is based on what was said about us from our parents and those around us.
  • In adolescence, we are more acutely aware of our appearance and may lead us to question how we look.
  • Socially constructed ideas of beauty we see in the media, popular culture, society, peers, and social media can create a false ideal of beauty.

Pairing Wine With Food
Pairing Wine With Food

To get the right pairing of the right food (or snacks) with the right wine, one has to balance the taste of the wine with the food alongside, keeping in mind the flavor, body, and alcohol. 

Matching The Flavours
  • Salty foods can be had with bold, tannic wines like Barolo or Chianti
  • Acidic food can balance out or cancel the acid in the wine, so one needs to ensure the wine is slightly more acidic than the food.
  • In the case of spicy foods, avoid tannic or oaky red wines, and lean towards a sweeter, rich and off-dry wine.
  • Creamy, buttery or oily foods complement well with equally rich and buttery wine, surprisingly. Deep-fried foods like fried chicken, fish and chips can be had with sharper, cutting wines to counteract the oiliness
  • Umami cuisine (a rage in the UK) is best had with red wine which is not ‘brashly structured’.
Snacks And Wine
  • Sweet desserts dull the flavor of a good dry wine, so it is best to have a slightly different flavor, in the same region, to complement the dessert. 
  • Overly sweet foods need to have the company of ‘Dessert Wines’, which are sweeter than the food!
  • Chocolate is best had with bubbly, grapy wine, as opposed to having a dry wine as a pair.

It is a good idea to mix and match, experiment and find the right combination and see if the ingredients in the dish are grown where the wine comes from, to match the two.

Defining Millennials
Defining Millennials

Millennials were born between 1981 and 1996.

Similar to how baby boomers were named after an increase in birth rate after World War II, millennials were named beca...

Major characteristics of millennials
  • Millennials are the children of baby boomers and were raised with the mindset of 'We want it to be easier for our children than it was for us.'
  • Millennials were around for the rise of the internet and came to age alongside the internet. A good way to describe millennials is technology-dependent, not technology-savvy.
  • Millennials got hammered by student loan debt, which was then compounded by the Great Recession. The results are years of economic struggle and delayed major milestones such as starting families and buying houses.
  • They were the first to force others to break stereotypes of their generation.
What defines Gen Z

The children of Generation X are known as Generation Z. They were born between 1997 and 2012. Gen X's main parenting goal was to raise their children so they do not end up like millennials.

Gen Z turns to the web for everything, from entertainment to news. They choose the entertainment of YouTube or TikTok over traditional outlets and spend about 50 hours per week on social media.

The history of refrigeration

Refrigeration is the action of creating cooling conditions by removing heat. It is used for preserving food by slowing bacteria growth.

Evaporative cooling
  • 1720s. Scottish doctor William Cullen saw that evaporation had a cooling effect.
  • 1748. Cullen demonstrated his ideas by evaporating ethyl ether in a vacuum.
  • 1805. Oliver Evans designed a refrigeration machine that used vapor instead of liquid.
  • 1820. English scientist Micahel Faraday used liquefied ammonia for cooling.
  • 1835. Jacob Perkins, who worked with Evans, patented a vapor-compression cycle using liquid ammonia.
  • 1842. John Gorrie, an American doctor, built a machine similar to Evans's design to artificially create ice and cool down patients with yellow fever.
  • New and improved refrigeration ideas continued to be developed, including Albert Einstein's idea of an environmentally friendly refrigerator with no moving parts that did not rely on electricity.
  • By 1920, refrigerators were considered essential in American homes.
How refrigerators work

Refrigerators today work by evaporating liquids.

The liquids are pushed through the refrigerator through tubes and begin to vaporize. As the liquids evaporate, they carry heat away with them as the gases travel to a coil outside the refrigerator. Here the heat is released. The gases return to a compressor, where they become liquid again, restarting the cycle.
