Scotch-Blended

Scotch is short for Scottish Whisky. Scotch whisky is divided into five distinct categories: single malt, Scotch whisky, single grain Scotch whisky, blended malt Scotch whisky, blended grain Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky. The whisky making process is similar to the beer making process; an extra step is involved by turning the starch in the grain to convert to sugar by adding malt. Malt contains an enzyme called diastase which will change the starch to sugar. The malt, grain and hot water is converted into mash and then fermented by adding yeast. After distilling, it is stored in barrels (usually oak) for at least two years. This adds a distinct aroma and flavor. In Scotch whisky, Scotland has a law to require scotch whiskey to be in barrels for a minimum of three years.
Blended Scotch whisky is a blend of one or more single malt Scotch whiskies with one or more single grain Scotch whiskies and Blended Grain Scotch Whiskey is a blend of single grain Scotch whiskies that have been distilled at more than one distillery. The difference between malt whiskies and grain whiskies is similar to the difference between ales and lagers because of the different ingredients used. All Scotches are bottled at a minimum of 80 proof; most are 86 proofs. (Katsigris & Thomas, 2012) Blended Scotch brands can be found as a house, call and premium. J&B is an example of a house brand. Johnny Walker Red and Dewars are common call brands and Chivas Regal, Johnny Walker Black and Johnny Walker Blue are considered premium brands. The house brand, J&B dates back to Giacomo Justerini, an Italian who went to London to pursue an Italian opera singer in 1749. When that didn’t work out, he remained in London to me a wine merchant with his English partner, George Johnson. Alfred Brooks bought the business from the third generation on Johnsons in 1831 and renamed it…...

From Scotch Whisky to Chinese Sneakers: International Commodity Flows and New Trade Networks in Oshikango, Namibia by Gregor Dobler

...Article Summary—From Scotch Whisky to Chinese Sneakers: International Commodity Flows and New Trade Networks in Oshikango, Namibia by Gregor Dobler Development of new trade networks feeding consumption have developed, influencing the way Africa integrates into the global economy. Dobler analyses different trade networks that link Oshikango, Nambibia to the world through four case studies on Scotch whisky, Brazilian furniture, Japanese used cars and Chinese sneakers commodities. Through the case studies, he exemplifies how there has been a shift from old colonial domination of trade to new manufacturing countries or trade routes, as well as the essential role of migrant entrepreneurs in these routes. The similarity underlying the different trade networks is that while the people involved in them are of different ethnicity or country of origin, they share the same profit-seeking motive and the opportunities in the international system shape them to become successful examples as facilitators of global trade. Another key concept from the article is that of global integration via consumption. As trade booms in the town of Namibia, it invariably fuels consumption in the town and Africa as a whole. Consumption choices are a means of self-expression in relation to the world and more Africans aspire towards commodities that reflect social standing and a ‘better life’. This thus creates new dependencies on the trade networks to fulfill these desires. Scotch Whisky Trade The......

Bio Scotch of Mike Tyson

...Jared Dickerson PSYC120-1204A-3 The Mind of A champion: Profile on Mike Tyson November 11, 12 What the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Mike Tyson? The man who once told a reporter he was going to rape him? Or, the man who overcame the odds rose to the top to become champion? I choose to do a psychological sketch on Tyson because he was once the richest and best-known athlete in the world, but still remains one of the hardest people to understand. Mike Tyson was born June 30th 1966 in Brooklyn, New York. By the age of two he was living with his 5 siblings in a single parent household in Brownsville New York, one of the toughest neighborhoods in the city. Having being exposed to domestic violence at an early age, Tyson would build a love for training pigeon as an escape of his reality. At age 9, a 15-year-old gang member decapitated one of Tyson’s beloved pigeons by turning it’s head slowly till it snapped off. Seeing this Tyson attacked the boy like a wild animal and brutally beat him. From that point Tyson reputation began to grow in his neighborhood. Tyson was quoted in an interview stating, “I never saw my mother happy with me and proud of me for doing something.  She only knew me as being a wild kid running the streets, coming home with new clothes that she knew I didn't pay for. I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her. Professionally, it has no effect, but it's crushing emotionally and personally." If a child......

Blended Families

...Blended families We try to create a world of structure and predictability for our children. As parents, we work hard to give our children routines, a regular schedule, consistent expectations, and plenty of love. We aim to make their lives predictable, stable, safe and secure. As they grow up, we hope that this early experience will be internalized as a kind of centeredness, and that they will be able to adapt when change comes around. In addition to providing children a safe and secure beginning, parent s need to be aware of the child’s feelings and be able to help them cope with change and stress. One in every two marriages in the United States will end up in divorce. Sixty percent of second marriages will also fail, according to statistics. Half of America is currently living in blended families. Over the past three decades, major transformations have taken place in the family world. Traditional nuclear families - mother, father and two children - are no longer the 'norm'). Nearly half of all marriages now end in divorce, and remarriages for one or both partners have more than doubled since the 1970s. Over 2.5 million children live in stepfamilies. Learning to live within a new stepfamily structure can change the living patterns, self-confidence and emotional wellbeing of all family members involved. It is especially hard on children. They have their own worlds constantly evolving around them. Kids are also dealing with peer pressure, life and social changes, and many......

Blended Families, Can They Work?

...Chapter 7 4. On a separate piece of paper, write a one paragraph summary of the arguments raised by each of these issues. Euthanasia This topic discusses that euthanasia is forbidden by the laws of God and morally wrong. Because it is God who gives us life and only He can decide when your life should come to an end. However if you apply the Utilitarian approach if you euthanize man to end his suffering because he is dying and the goal to the ultimate happiness can no longer be achieve then euthanasia is morally right. To believe the way Utilitarian way you view God as nothing more than a benevolent by stander. Is it wrong to euthanize animals, God created them should He not chose when it is their time to die as well? Marijuana This is a discussion on the legalization of pot. It amazes me that so much of tax dollars are spent on this rather than more prevalent issues. Legalization of marijuana can be possible in fact laws have been placed on tobacco and alcohol to regulate its usage, they are in fact a drug as well. Instead of fighting marijuana usage, tax the crap out of it, regulate its distribution, and get our country less out of debt. I believe the utilitarian way, if marijuana usage provides greater happiness for the person using it then good for that person. But also we must consider the production of marijuana today. It is no longer produced in its purest form. Today people grow this plant with so many additives that can be harmful to the person smoking......

Single Malt Scotch

...Single Malt Scotch Whiskey HADM 3500 - Spring 2015 Chris Vanderkleed History of Whisky (read best with a glass of Lagavulin 16) Whisky has a rich history and has been distilled for centuries throughout the world. It is often thought that the distilling process was brought to Scotland by Christian Missionaries, but the Highland farmers would of course dispute this and rather attribute it to their own ingenuity. The first record of distillation in Scotland occurred in 1494 as an entry in the Exchequer Rolls states, “Eight bolls of malt to Friar John Cor wherewith to make aqua vitae”. There is some debate as to whether the name “whisky” derives from “usquebaugh” or the gaelic “uisge beatha”, both meaning “water of life”, much like Latin’s “aqua vitae”. The Scottish government first capitalized on the popularity of whisky in 1644, imposing their first tax on spirits. This was obviously not well received and many distilleries resorted to illegal production and a black market of sorts was formed. It was not until 1824 when the first legal distilling license was given to George Smith who would go on to found the Glenlivet. What is Whisky? A whisky, by definition, is an alcoholic beverage distilled from fermented grain mash. This grain mash can be rye, corn, wheat, and most commonly, barley. Additionally, whisky is usually aged in wooden casks, typically made from charred white oak. According to the 2009 Scotch Whisky Regulations, single malt whisky is whisky produced......

Happiness in Blended Family Case Study

...on their outings with just their dad and that they are concerned with giving up their personal space to the girls. In my opinion, these are all valid concerns but nothing that cannot be worked through with communication via family meetings and some compromise as well as reassurance from each parent to the children. It is great that the parents have both agreed to take things slowly in introducing the children to each other as well as to the other adult. The parents have also agreed to create new traditions and activities that will help to establish a feeling of togetherness. “All families struggle at times to be happy, but blended families often have bigger obstacles to face than others. For instance, the quality of the relationship between the stepparent and the stepchildren has a big impact on the level of happiness in a blended family. Loyalty issues with the biological children and knowing how to discipline also add major complications.” (http://www.improvingyourworld.com) It is demonstrated by Jason that he understands that how he disciplines his sons works for them as the way Rose disciplines her daughters works for them and neither wants to undermine the other. To meet these challenges well, a husband and wife must make their relationship to each other the top priority (Genesis 2:24). From experience, we all know that it is difficult to have a positive relationship with everyone we meet, even at times, with members of our own family. So it will not be......

Blended Family

... Abstract This paper will address issues that may arise when counseling blended families by focusing on the family dynamic system. Blended families or step-families are becoming more prevalent in the United States each year. The number of divorces has continued to rise in the United States, which has caused the rate of couples remarrying to increase as well. Blended families usually result from different life circumstances such, as past relationships, divorces, deaths, and separations. At times blended families are faced with many challenges, and these challenges can cause significant problems within the new relationships. Some of the problems are due to different parenting styles. Children are having to readjust to a new lifestyle and getting along with stepparents or siblings can put an obstacle into the new relationship. Family counseling provides blended families with an opportunity and a platform for voicing their feelings and learning ways to accommodate each other within the family. Keywords: Blended families, counseling, divorce, remarriage, children, separation, parenting style, step-siblings, and widowing. Blended Family Counseling Introduction Blended families are becoming accepted in today’s society, and many families are merging together as one. Gonzales (2009) defined blended family as two couples coming together into a new relationship with one or more children from a previous relationship. Customarily, the primary family structure consisted of a......

13 Keys to Successful Blended Learning

...Transforming a mishmash of educational technologies into a coherent “blended learning” model is fast becoming the holy grail of modern education. With so much software and hardware already in place, making blended learning work is less about acquiring technology, and more about changing mindsets. Susan O. Moore, supervisor of blended learning at Meriden Public Schools (CT), breaks the implementation of blended learning into five stages: Build the capacity of staff members to support each other in the transition to a blended learning environment. Provide opportunities for staff to visit each other’s classrooms and collaborate. Allow teachers and students the freedom to fail and learn from mistakes. Engage student experts to support each other and their teachers in learning new technologies. “We had students present on technology tools to teachers during one of our professional development days,” Moore said. A student introduced her to Google Keep, which has become one of the apps she uses most. Encourage students and teachers to take charge of their learning. Providing control over “time, place, path and/or pace” comes with responsibility. For example, a student might have access to digital content during the high school pep rally, but is that the best time and place to retain the information? Teachers may need additional training in using rotation models or creating digital content. “They need to model extending learning beyond the classroom,” said Moore. Take......
