The Do’s and Don’t’s of drinking and serving wine

Many women love to unwind by having a glass of wine.

But before you grab that glass and sip, do you know the etiquette for serving and drinking wine?

Fun facts to know about wine:

  1. Wine is made in virtually every country in the world.
  2. Intense fear or hatred of wine is called “oenophobia.”
  3. All wine is stored at the same temperature, regardless of its color. But reds and whites are consumed at completely different temperatures.
  4. One glass of wine consists of juice from one cluster of grapes.
  5. Red wine can only be made from blue or purple-skinned grapes. White wine can also come from these darker grapes, but only if the juice is separated from the skins.
  6. Rosé, which finds itself somewhere in between red and white, is most often crafted by allowing the juice limited and controlled contact with dark grape skins.

So when handling wine these are some of the Dos and Don’ts:

DOS

  • Consider decanting your wine – The real benefit of the process is that it gently exposes the wine to air, softening its acids and tannin, effectively smoothing out all the sharp edges and wrinkles. It can be particularly helpful in taming the funk that comes off so-called reductive wines.
  • Smell your glass before pouring in your wine – You wouldn’t want the wine fragrance coming in your way over a soapy glass or dust-covered glass. One of the best, most enjoyable parts about drinking wine is appreciating its fragrance.
  • Invest in a good opener – You wouldn’t want chunks of the cork going into your wine bottle.

DON’T’S

  • Serve your red wine too warm – Heat will exacerbate the alcohol content of a wine, making your nose hairs burn when you go in for a big whiff. Conventional wisdom generally dictates that light-to medium-bodied reds should be served around 13–15C, while fuller-bodied reds are better enjoyed in the 15–20C range.
  • Serve your white wines too cold – Why? Because you’ll taste less. Light-bodied, less-aromatic wines should be served colder, in the 4–8C range, whereas more expressive and fuller-bodied whites should ideally be served in the slightly-warmer-but-still technically cold range of 8–10C.
  • Overpour your glass: Seriously, no matter how rough the day. If the glass is too full and you try to do your best professional swirl-and-sniff, chances are you’re going to end up making a mess.
  • Let past-its-prime, open wine go to waste: See if you can’t find a recipe for a stew, or soup or sauce where it can be given a respectable second-chance at life.

Chunga Omar Lali!!! Lupita Nyong’o warned as she vacations in Lamu

Lupita Nyong’o dominated the headlines earlier this year after British supermodel Naomi Campbell was given the gig to promote Kenyan tourism to international travelers.

A serious debate ensued with many asking Najib Balala why our own famous export hadn’t been used to promote magical Kenya?

The cabinet secretary responded by saying that getting to the Oscar-winning actress had been a tall task, otherwise the government would have offered her the job.

Miss Nyong’o on her part denied that she had ever been called by the government. While we might never know the truth between the two, one thing we can see is that it has changed Lupita’s traveling habits.

Lupita who usually keeps a very very low profile when she comes to Kenya has decided to announce to every Kenyan that she is at the coast.

Yep, the thespian who has nary made a public visit to the country the last 8 years decided to reveal her whereabouts, something she hasn’t done since her celebrity status exploded.

Mmm…I wonder why? But I digress. The reason I write this story is how Kenyans have decided to turn her triumphant return promoting her lovely Kenya to speak about Omar Lali-the old man implicated in the death of Keroche heiress, Tecra Muigai.

Check out some of the hilarious comments below:

But Naomi Campell ashaapita na kazi yako you can look for Omar Lali it’s the only gift we can give you now.

Yes, hata Cardi b hukula! The benefits of Matumbo you didn’t know!

Cardi B really knows how to get Kenyans excited. The rapper has a knack for speaking about things that are very close to our hearts.

Earlier this month, the mother of one praised our matatu culture after she spotted some vehicles bearing beautiful graffiti of her visage.


View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

But who knew that that wouldn’t be the only time that Kenyans would be eagerly speaking about the American rapper’s tastes this year.

Yesterday, the former stripper posted a video on her Twitter page of herself eating tripe, commonly known as Matumbo to many Kenyans.

The WAP hitmaker decided to show off the tripe that she was about to dig into. Cardi could not hide the excitement she had for having to taste one of her favorite foods.

A few hours into the post on her verified Twitter handle, Cardi B’s video had accumulated more than 2 million views, with Kenyans, in particular, going gaga over the news.

“I can’t believe Cardi B eats HomePub Matumbo, I never want to hear the slander again,” wrote one Fanta Guy.

In the video, Cardi B spoke so highly of the food making it seem like it always had something so good hidden in it. But is there something special about the meat that some Kenyans consider as an acquired taste?

According to medical sources, yes, there is. Let’s begin.

Tripe or matumbo is a type of organ meat made from the edible stomach lining of farm animals. Ruminant animals like cows, buffalo and sheep have multiple stomach chambers to properly digest their food.

Beef tripe is one of the most commonly eaten varieties. It has a chewy texture and a mild taste, taking on the flavour of other ingredients it is cooked with.

Tripe/Matumbo can benefit both your health and your wallet in the following ways

Tripe is a complete source of protein, meaning that it contains all nine essential amino acids your body needs to function.

Adding protein-rich foods to your diet is an excellent way to lose excess body fat or maintain a healthy weight.

Protein is the most filling of all nutrients. Adding a protein source like tripe to meals and snacks can help reduce hunger, preventing the chances of overeating.

Affordable and Sustainable. Because tripe is not as desirable as steak and other meat products, it’s a more affordable protein option for those trying to save money.

Tripe packs an impressive amount of nutrients, including selenium, zinc and vitamin B12.

A 5-ounce (140-gram) serving of cooked beef tripe delivers 25% of the RDI for selenium and more than 15% of the RDI for both vitamin B12 and zinc.

Vitamin B12 is essential for red blood cell production, nerve transmission and energy production, while zinc is vital for cell division, immune function and carbohydrate metabolism (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source).

Selenium is a mineral that acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body. It’s also needed for DNA production, thyroid health and metabolism (11Trusted Source).

Additionally, tripe is a good source of the minerals calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.

Downsides

The smell, taste and texture of tripe may turn some people off, especially if it’s not prepared in the right way. Plus, tripe is high in cholesterol, which may not be the best choice for those who are sensitive to high-cholesterol foods.

After he made a series of erratic statements, Kardashian took to social media to ask for the public’s understanding.

“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.”

‘The chapters are finally coming together,’ Michelle Ntalami pays tribute to late dad

Marini CEO’s Michelle Ntalami has paid tribute to her late dad, Edward Ntalami, who passed away in 2014 after a long battle with cancer.

Pouring her heart out in a lengthy Instagram post, Michelle described her father as a meticulous scholar.

“I wore my dad’s lapel pin from the University of Sheffield to work. A pin he got 40 years ago during his Masters. My dad was so scholarly, intelligent and extremely meticulous about his work. The biggest perfectionist I’ve ever seen, and yes, more than me! He would lock up my siblings and me in the study room and force us to read one storybook per week. Then come home in the evening and ask us about it. I’d usually read only the first and last page of a chapter, (coz obviously I was too busy stealing his VCRs to watch the Octagon by Chuck Norris) then make everything in between up. But he’d always, always bust me.”

She stated that she often finds herself buried in books a powerful tool that her father instilled in her.

“Three decades on, here I am locking myself up in my office, writing my life story. No making things up, no skipping the chapters, no faking the story. I now apply all the lessons he instilled in me every day. Education, hard-work, discipline, etiquette, honesty, eloquence, excellence in everything you do, having high standards, taking no-nonsense, bossing up and dressing sharp. As I wear his lapel pin, I feel so proud knowing I continue his legacy in the way he would have wanted me to. I smile up at him because I realize of all the things my Dad ever did for me, ensuring that I remain a woman of integrity, high value and good moral standing is by far the most priceless gift he ever gave me…especially in today’s world. Thank you, Papa. The chapters are finally coming together.”

My WCW! Actress Gabrielle Union praises Kenyan queen Achieng Agutu

Achieng Agutu has been making waves on the world stage as a confident queen since popular Daytime Tv host Ellen Degeneres interviewed her.

Miss Agutu became a household name after she was reunited with her family whom she claimed she had not seen in two years and was given KSh 5 million by a touched Ellen.

Her emotional story of working multiple jobs to make ends meet, her parents selling land and taking loans to take her to school touched the audience in the Ellen show but Kenyans back home were skeptical.

Meet Achieng Agutu, a Kenyan girl who holds 6 jobs in the US

But despite what some Kenyans might think Achieng’s positivity and sparkle has endeared her to none other than Being Mary Jane actress Gabrielle Union.

The beautiful mother of one who is married to former NBA star, Dwayne Wade dedicated a substantial text to the ever hyped up dark skin queen and it could bring tears to the driest of eyes.

“Today’s #WCW is known as the “Confidence Queen,” and yall I am here for it: @Noordinarynoire. Her Instagram is rich with content that empowers, heals and boosts your mood. She is the internet’s personal HYPE woman, and we could also use a cheerleader right now. On top of her words of encouragement, she serves LOOKS; rocking patterns and colors that just exude joy. Do yourself a favor today, and see what she has got going on. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.”

As of now, Achieng doesn’t seem to be aware of the shout-out but I am sure that when she does, hevean and hell will hear about it!

‘From a salon business to ‘simu ya jamii,’ Jobs Rayvanny did before fame

Before fame and money, most celebrities have struggled to make it to the top. It’s no different with Tanzanian singer Rayvanny who recently revealed his property was stolen while trying to make ends meet

I loved to do business even before I started singing. I worked in the phone kiosks and they stole what was mine,

Adding that;

I ventured into a salon business and started other businesses. So when you see me in the music industry also know that I have other things that I do on the side but music is in my blood.

Rayvanny is currently one of the most sought after singers in East Africa with a BET award.

I am done playing straight characters-Prison Break star Wentworth Miller quits series

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has officially quit the series. Yes. The actor whose role as the tattooed convict on the hit show became the talk of town when the show first aired in the mid-2000’s.

The actor, who played Michael Scofield in the hit Fox series, said he won’t be returning in any future revival of the series as he is done playing straight characters.


View this post on Instagram

So many messages of support and encouragement… Thank you. I’m taking it in. I only hope – thru my acting/writing, what I share online – that energy is returned in some way/shape/form… I didn’t anticipate my previous post going so far, so fast, and I feel motivated to offer a follow-up… Am I saying gay actors (gay men, specifically) should only play gay parts? No. I was speaking for myself. At this point in my life/career, it’s what feels interesting, inspiring, right. That said, do I want to see more gay parts played by gay actors? Yes. It makes a difference performance-wise (IMO), but also bec straight actors playing “gay” centers straightness. Doesn’t matter if they’re “acting” – I still know what I’m looking at. (Does this dynamic exist on a spectrum with porn genres like “gay-for-pay” and the prioritization/fetishization of straight/”masc” men over gay/”femme” men within the gay community? Conversations for another time.) PB was challenging, onscreen and off. Did anyone involved tell me, explicitly, to bury my gayness for the show’s sake? No. Had I already received enough messaging from Hollywood/the larger culture/the schools I went to/my family of origin such things go unspoken lest you risk punishment, losing rights/privileges? Yes. One of the ironies of the closet is I became my own jailer. “Prison Break” indeed. (I’ve said it before – the universe has a sense of humor.) I haven’t spent my career on “Pose” and “Looking.” Didn’t work out that way. What I’ve done is a lot of action-adventure, and that’s come with a diverse fanbase. Within that is a homophobic subgroup and their shit’s been washing up on my shore. They dig “Michael” but have a problem with me. It’s got that “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin” energy. They’d prefer I keep quiet, dial it down. Don’t Remind Them. No. My gayness was largely erased (by me, for starters) in the first decades of my career. It is my want, now, to center it in a way that cannot be missed by myself or anyone else. – W.M. 🏳️‍🌈

He revealed this information on his Instagram page saying, “I’m out. Of PB. Officially. I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told).”

Adding that while the news might be “disappointing” he was still sorry for fans. But that didn’t detract from him adding, “If you’re hot and bothered [because] you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one, that’s on you.”

His co-stars supported his decision with Dominic Purcell, who played Miller’s on-screen brother, Lincoln Burrows, writing, “It was fun mate. What a ride it was. Fully support and understand your reasoning. Glad you have made this decision for you health and your truth.”

Sarah Wayne Calies, the actress who played his on-screen wife, Sara Tancredi, said: “With gratitude for all the work we did together, & with deep love, I’m voicing my support for that choice.”

Why Trade Gold (and other metals)

Whether you are considering a short-term speculation or a long-term investment, gold and other precious metals always provide an exciting trading opportunity. Due to their intrinsic value, metals are seen as safe haven investments in times of financial storms and a good asset for portfolio diversification. But it is important to remember that metals can and do go through volatile periods based on economic conditions, which also attract traders that are speculating on short-term price movements.

Why Trade Gold

Gold is the most actively traded of all metals, and for good reason. Its unique properties of durability, malleability and conductivity make it a very desirable and in-demand metal for everything from industrial applications to jewelry. Like most commodities, the price of gold is shaped by market forces of supply and demand. Couple the high demand for gold with a limited supply, and you have all the ingredients for a sought-after commodity that keeps its value over long periods of time.

That isn’t to say, however, that the price of gold is always on the rise. Like everything else that’s traded, it is influenced by risk sentiment, market uncertainty, and inflation trends. In times of economic calamity, however, gold can retain its value better than most financial instruments. While stocks and currencies are vulnerable to situations such as conflict, political or economic crises, or fiscal mishaps from governments, gold’s sheer scarcity gives it a better chance at value retention.

all the ingredients for a sought-after commodity that keeps its value over long periods of time.

Based on these characteristics, gold is often preferred by traders who are looking for a long-term investment. You can look for bullish or bearing markets, and price trends and reversals can be determined along with equity indices. For instance, a strong stock market is usually reflective of strong economic conditions, and thus weaker demand for gold as an investment. A bearish market, on the other hand, is indicative of weaker fundamentals and can make investors seek gold as a safe holding.

Why Trade Precious Metals like Silver and Platinum

Silver is often viewed as a cheaper alternative to gold, but its own unique properties make it quite different from its shinier counterpart. Aside from its use in jewelry, silver has wide applications as an industrial metal. This makes it more susceptible to conditions in the manufacturing industry and business activity among companies who use it. Because of that, price fluctuations are usually more volatile in the silver market in contrast to gold, making it a good candidate for short-term traders.

Platinum, like gold, also tends to gain value during times of economic, financial, or political crisis. It is much rarer compared to gold, however, and commands a much higher price and is thus less traded. All things considered, it can serve as an alternative safe investment, especially when the gold market becomes too active. Platinum also has things in common with silver when it comes to certain industrial uses, making its price sensitive to changing business conditions as well.

How to Trade Gold and other Precious Metals

Precious metals are traded on a spot basis, and don’t require the actual delivery of physical goods. Metals are traded in standard contract sizes of one lot. One lot of gold, for instance, is 100 troy ounces, while one lot of silver is 5000 troy ounces.

Causes of premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to fix it

 Feelings of irritability, cravings and fatigue are as common around the time of your period but many don’t know how to deal with premenstrual symptoms

But what you might not know is what is causing your premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to deal with it.

Fertility specialist, Dr Nat Kringoudis, believes that stress is one of the major factors that contributes to PMS.

Classy gifts to buy your father this Father’s day to celebrate him

According to Daily Mail Dr Nat  shared the eight ways you can beat or at least relieve symptoms around your time of the month, and the one superfood that will help to balance your hormones.

Writing on her blog, Melbourne-based Dr Kringoudis explained exactly why a hard time at work or home might contribute to your PMS.

‘Stress in the body undermines pretty much every bodily function, and given our reproductive systems are the most sensitive, stress will definitely impact its function,’ she said.

RIP!!!!!Nyamira governor John Nyangarama’s son dies of menengitis

The specialist added that ‘during PMS, that stress can impact our body’s ability to regulate hormones effectively – the additional cortisol and other stress hormones can upset functioning levels of progesterone’.

Progesterone is the ‘feel good’ hormone, and Dr Kringoudis said that when it goes ‘too low, too quickly in our luteal phase, it can feel like PMS is getting the best of us’.

So how can you beat PMS, or at least relieve the symptoms when you’re feeling low?

First, there is one superfood that Dr Kringoudis believes we should all incorporate into our daily regimes: Maca powder.

‘Maca gets the title of a superfood because it delivers on the nutrition front,’ she said. ‘It’s totally full of vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and amino acids… It’s full of B vitamins, which are good for energy, and magnesium – one of my favourite all-round period fixers.’

Next, she said there are eight other things you can do to regulate your hormones and reduce feelings of nausea, bloating and irritability.

‘Drink chamomile tea, as it will help to keep you calm and can also help alleviate cramping associated with menstrual bleeding.’

Dr Kringoudis also recommends loading your plate up with Vegemite, which is ‘loaded with B vitamins which immediately balance out oestrogen and boost the feel good hormones, dopamine and serotonin’.

The eight things you should do to beat PMS

1. Drink chamomile tea.

2. Pull in the reins and go gently.

3. Eat Vegemite.

4. Take some gentle exercise.

5. Prioritise rest.

6. Get some sunshine in.

7. Bathe in lavender oil.

8. Stock up on Maca powder.

Churchill said during his show that it has taken him over 20 years to be where he is while it was tough back in the day when there was no social media

I’VE SEEN A LOT OF STORIES HAPPENING, WATU WANAONGEA SANA UNASHINDWA WHERE DO YOU START. I LIKE KEEPING AND STAYING POSITIVE. 

He added,

FIRST OF ALL IN EVERYTHING WE DO IT’S A JOURNEY. IT HAS TAKEN ME 20 YEARS NOW NDIO TUFANYE HIZI MAJOURNEY SERIES AND WE’RE NOT STOPPING. CORONAVIRUS HAS TAUGHT US A LOT…KUMBE COMPANY INAEZA FUNGWA UKAANZISHA KITU INGINE.  IN THE PAST WE HAD LIKE 10 CAMERAS ON ME, WE HAVE A CREW OF 150 PEOPLE BUT RIGHT NOW, WITH EVEN A PHONE CAMERA YOU CAN BECOME MEDIA. AND THAT’S WHAT I TELL YOUNG PEOPLE ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE COMING UP AND THEY GET CARRIED NA HII MAMBO YA SOCIAL MEDIA AND ITS AMAZING BECAUSE 10 YEARS AGO IT WAS NOT THIS WAY, YOU HAD TO AUDITION AND IT WAS CRAZY.

Churchill went on to insist that comedians and other creatives can use social media to make it in life

‘YOU START SOCIAL MEDIA AND BECOME MEDIA. NOW WE’RE NOT IN THAT ERA ULIKUWA UNASEMA ‘MTU AMENIKAZIA KUWA KWA STAGE, OOH SASA HUYU HANITAKII’ WE DID TIME FOR YOU TUKAMALIZA, NOW YOU’RE A BRAND. ALL YOU NEED IS GREAT CONTENT AND CHANGE SOCIAL MEDIA AND BECOME MEDIA YOURSELF. PEOPLE FOLLOW CONTENT AND WHERE WE’RE GOING CONTENT WILL BE KEY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ON TV OR RADIO AND CAN PAY YOURSELF ALL THE MONEY YOU WANT AND LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE TIME HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE FOR YOU NOW YOU’RE WORKING FOR AN ALREADY ESTABLISHED PLATFORM. GO AHEAD AND BECOME A STAR THAT YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE’

This comes after several comedians have been reported to have depression. Some like Njoro and Wakimani have come out to reveal their situation begging for help.
