Musk’s finished underground transportation loop gets a viewing in Vegas

The president and CEO of Las Vegas’ main tourism agency thinks naysayers need to stop questioning the viability of an underground “people mover” transportation loop beneath the city’s Convention Center campus.

“There’s been a fair amount of undeserved skepticism around this project,” Hill said Friday afternoon as he addressed media members from one of the loop’s three passenger stations. “It’s innovative, but the technology associated with it is not, frankly, game-changing. It’s a tunnel, which we’ve been building for a long time, and it’s a roadway. Those things are not technically difficult.”

On Thursday and Friday, local and national media members got some of the first views of the completed $52.5 million dual tunnel system, which features three passenger stations.

It will be open, and available at no charge, for World of Concrete show attendees at the Convention Center in June.

The construction trade show will be the first major convention in Las Vegas since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.

DUBAI, UAE, April 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- TGM Research has conducted a global survey of 9,612 participants (20-28 March), across 17 countries. We found that over 68% of Muslims will have their Ramadan celebrations impacted by COVID.

Virginia Distillery Co. Courage & Conviction – Bourbon Cask, Sherry Cask, and Cuvée Cask


Drew Beard April 9, 2021

Virginia Distillery Co. introduced their flagship single malt, Courage & Conviction, in the spring of 2020, and they’ve wasted no time in adding to the portfolio with not one but three new whiskies in the Courage and Conviction line: Bourbon Cask, Sherry Cask, and Cuvée Cask. All three releases are drawn from stocks used in the core Courage & Conviction blend, offering fans the chance to taste the different elements of that single malt. Like the flagship, each single malt is aged at least three years at the distillery’s warehouses in Lovingston, Virginia. All three releases have been dedicated to industry consultant and master blender Nancy Fraley, a friend and mentor to the distillery’s founders. We were impressed with the initial Courage and Conviction releases. Read on to see how the individual component whiskies stand on their own.

Courage & Conviction Bourbon Cask – Aged in ex-bourbon casks from Kentucky. The nose is quite far removed from the flagship Courage & Conviction blend, showing how influential the other casks are in that regard. It’s soft with airy notes of cooked grain, vanilla bean, and butterscotch pudding. The palate is light and creamy with big, sweet notes of marshmallow fluff and vanilla icing accented with a bit of lemon zest. The sweetness fades somewhat on the finish, replaced with drier, oak-driven notes and some buttery caramel. 92 proof. B+ / $85

Courage & Conviction Sherry Cask – Aged in a mix of Fino, Oloroso, and Pedro Ximénez casks. On the nose, juicy notes of plum and stewed figs dominate with subtler aromas of slivered almonds and cherry cordial. The nose on the flagship has far more in common with this one. On the palate, an initial dark berry sweetness quickly gives way to less syrupy dried fruits with a concentrated, at times almost tart, sweetness. Notes of raisin and dried apricot, dusted with various baking spices, linger into a warming finish. 92 proof. A- / $85

Courage & Conviction Cuvée Cask – Aged in shaved, re-toasted, and re-charred red wine casks (known as “STR”). The nose is perhaps not as dynamic as the Sherry Cask, but it’s concentrated with ripe raspberry and blackberry folded into sweet pastry cream. There’s a subtle cocoa powder note, as well, that comes across, at times, like a light roast coffee. The palate is the most flavorful of the trio with bright, juicy red fruits, brûléed sugar, cinnamon stick, and a touch of earthy black tea. It’s all rather decadent with a generous finish of berry compote and baking spice. 92 proof. A / $85

Health & Wellness Company, TerpNutrition, Disrupts the Market with Hemp Based Recovery Line

Founders of TerpNutrition, Ben Pasquel and Megan Loda, with their beautiful dog Kiwi.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, April 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Health and wellness coaches Megan Loda and Ben Pasquel, announced today the rebranding of TerpNutrition, a hemp based recovery company here to normalize the use of hemp as an alternative solution. TerpNutrition's mission is to improve the lives of everyday active adults with the use of full spectrum products, available exclusively at terpnutrition.com.

Co-founder Loda suffered from two herniated discs at the age of 21, which caused her a tremendous amount of pain. When her discs ruptured, she lost all feeling on her left side. This caused her to get rushed into emergency surgery. Doctors said that she would be dependent on painkillers for the rest of her life and that she would never lift weights again. During this time, co-founder Pasquel discovered the incredible benefits of CBD and started incorporating it into his nightly routine. After seeing such promising results when it came to Pasquel's sleeping problems, Loda started trying CBD for herself. After just one week, Loda felt less pain and started her transition away from pharmaceuticals. Fast forward 8 years, Loda has become pain free and has competed in 3 NPC Bikini Competitions. In addition to running TerpNutrition and competing, Loda is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and founder of the Positively Fit Community helping thousands of women around the world reach their physical, mental, and emotional goals.

"With TerpNutrition, I want to help athletes and active adults see full spectrum CBD as a primary recovery method," said Loda. "I know CBD alone is not going to bring maximum health, but it has helped my back tremendously and should be an essential part of a well-rounded healthy lifestyle.''

TerpNutrition's core values are quality, transparency, and community. They source from a USDA Organic Hemp farm in Colorado and use an ISO:9001 certified lab for extraction for the highest quality products. With limited regulations, TerpNutrition feels it's their corporate responsibility to offer 3rd party lab testing on every batch that they sell. This ensures the highest quality and safety for their customers. These lab results can be found right on their website on each product page.

Mushrooming of Meal-Kit & Ready Meals Industry & Is there a better way to cater to the demand?

Mushrooming of Meal-Kit & Ready Meals Industry & Is there a better way to cater to the demand? The burden on the environment & who pays for the cost of packing?

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, April 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- We have seen so many meal kit andprepared mealscompanies sprung up in the last decade. Almost all these companies work on a subscription model. Customers choose a plan, and they get their meal kit ofready mealsdelivered every week. Let's talk about meal kits. Are they beneficial? What do customers get from it? Are they solving a big problem for the consumers? Well, depending on who you ask, the answers may vary. For some consumers who have the time and interest to prepare gourmet food at home, the meal kits work well. The meal kits come with recipes and groceries necessary to prepare meals. If you have the time and interest to cook, then meal kits will work well for you. It will surely make the chef in you happy, and if it elevates your mood, then why not. Bear in mind that some of these meals may take 30-60 minutes, and you may end up washing multiple pots and pans.

On the other hand, if you don't have the time or the interest to chop, cook, and clean, then meal kits won't work for you. You may want to look at companies that provide prepared meals. As the name suggests, these meals are finished goods, and all you have to do is heat and eat. The heating instructions may vary depending on the company and the item. Most of these meals can be heated in a microwave and come with heating instructions that are relatively easy to follow. So, no matter what time of the day or night it is, you can enjoy a good meal at home in just a few minutes. There are several options within the ready meals industry; consumers can choose among various diet options such as Vegan, Keto, Low Carb, High Protein, etc., or regular meals that aren't too diet specific.

All these companies have to use insulated boxes, insulated covers and or blankets, and ice packs to keep the food refrigerated or frozen during transit. Usually, the transit time is about 24-48 hours, and therefore it is necessary to use appropriate packing to keep the food safe. Unfortunately, the packing is not cheap, and once the package is delivered, most consumers end up tossing it in the trash, although it can be recycled or reused in some cases. In the end, consumers end up eating the cost of this packing which is not trivial by any means. Not to forget the enormous burden on the environment.

There is one thing that these companies have proven to us, and it is that there is a market for it. However, there must be a better way to fulfill this need. Fortunately, there is. The solution is to connect customers to local chefs who can provide fully prepared meals. One such company is doing just that. It is SareFood.com, and currently, it is only operational in St. Louis, Missouri but getting ready to expand to other metro cities. SareFood.com's model is simple and environmentally friendly. The customers go online, pick meals from a chef, and choose a delivery day and time, and that's it. The meals are delivered to the customers in a microwave-safe container which they can reuse. What's great for the customers is that they don't have to subscribe and get stuck with eating the same meals every week. Customers can choose a new chef every week or whenever they decide to order or stick with their favorite ones. The prices are very reasonable, and the portion sizes are great. Most importantly, the consumers don't have to eat up the hidden cost of all the throw-away packing. This model is very environmentally friendly and perfect for boosting the local economy and keeping jobs within the state boundaries.

Review: 2018 Marina Cvetic Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva

We last considered Marina Cvetic’s trebbiano back in its 2011 vintage. Trebbiano has never been the world’s most thrilling grape, and here it showcases a ton of citrus, almost tropical acidity — but it’s backed by notes of green vegetable, hemp rope, and bread dough. A moderate vanilla note builds on the finish, tempering the acid with some creaminess, but I can never shake a light vegetal character that runs through the entire experience.

Luxardo Amaretto reveals new-look bottle

Luxardo has given a revamp to one of its most popular liqueurs as its celebrates its 200th anniversary.

The Luxardo Amaretto is now sporting a new label, designed to increase its vibrancy and shelf standout, while retaining its slim, angular bottle. In-keeping with a growing trend towards lower-ABV drinks, Luxardo has also reduced the potency of its Amaretto from 28% to 24% ABV.

Despite the lowered ABV, Luxardo says the liqueur retains its depth of flavour, derived from essential oils from Marasca cherries, peaches and apricots. Luxardo also emphasised the mixability of this classic Italian liqueur, from serving it neat over ice or in an Amaretto Sour to adding it to coffee and desserts.

To coincide with the launch of the new bottles, Luxardo global brand ambassador and cocktail expert Gareth 'G' Franklin is set to reveal a new Amaretto serve. It will form part of an original cocktail menu using the Luxardo range which is  being created for the family-owned brand's 200th anniversary.

Franklin said: "Amaretto is very versatile for long drinks with a popular mixer, and it also combines well with spirits such as whisky and rum, and we have seen many innovative serves by bartenders. Classics such as an Amaretto Sour are a staple on cocktail lists.
