Und wiedereinmal wurden für den Pingus sagenhafte 100 Parker Punkte vergeben: \"I was really looking forward to the 2016 Pingus in bottle, as the sample I tasted last time promised to be one of the best (if not the best!) Pinguses to date. Few (if any) vintages of Pingus have shown such integration of the oak, especially considering the wine is so extremely young. It has precision and symmetry, elegance and austerity à la Audrey Hepburn. This 2016 is like an updated version of the 1996, produced with a lot more knowledge that helped them find this purity, freshness and elegance. Peter Sisseck described it as seamless, and I could only agree. He also said that this is probably his ideal of what the wine from Ribera del Duero should be. The wine was kept in barrel for an extra couple of months and was finally bottled in August 2018; there were 8,100 bottles produced. It delivered all the sample promised, and perhaps a bit more...\" (Luis Gutiérrez, Dez. 2019)
This study: (1) characterises technological change in both advanced & developing worlds and assesses the technology climate of a case country (ie, Bangladesh) & her catching up efforts towards technological mastery, (2) spots aggravating conceptual confusions among some purpose-built short-cut schemes to advanced technology transfers, eg, EPZs, Industrial Parks, Technology Parks, etc., (3) makes specific queries about the nature & operational features of these schemes and proposes an unambiguous conceptual framework of a standard model, namely, 'special technology infrastructure' (STI) classifying the schemes in terms of their business, research & technological orientations, (4) conducts performance appraisals of the technological 'catching up' efforts in Bangladesh-EPZs using secondary data & in Dhaka-EPZ using a mix of primary & secondary information. (5) draws particular attention to the significance of the concept of 'dated labor' (workers with the latest know-whys) from 'vintage growth model', and pinpoints the importance of ensuring the presence of a technologically capable workforce prior to utilizing the zone concepts for technological learning & mastery.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Vintage, in wine-making, is the process of picking grapes and creating the finished product. A vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown and harvested in a single specified year. In certain wines, it can denote quality, as in Port wine, where Port houses make and declare vintage Port in their best years. From this tradition, a common, though incorrect, usage applies the term to any wine that is perceived to be particularly old or of a particularly high quality. Most countries allow a vintage wine to include a portion of wine that is not from the year denoted on the label. In Chile and South Africa, the requirement is 75% same-year content for vintage-dated wine.

THE COLLIE By DR. O. P. Bennett And C.H. Wheeler. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT Originally published in Washington 1924, and republished in a revised and up-dated edition in the same year, this extremely scarce early work on the Collie is both expensive and hard to find in any edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished the revised edition, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The authors were highly respected figures in the dog world with Dr. Bennett being President of the Collie Club of America, and C.H. Wheeler being an expert on the history and origins of the Collie in the United Kingdom. Both men realised the great need for a modern volume on the Collie. This resulted in a work giving a fuller and more complete history of the breed than was hitherto available. They also took up the question of breeding in a more thorough manner than any other work of its kind in existence. The book's three hundred and fifty six pages consist of ten comprehensive chapters, illustrated with rare vintage photographs of Collie Champions for the period beginning circa 1874 through to 1923. Over two thirds of the work is devoted to detailed records of individual Collies. Although published in the U.S.A., the content is evenly divided between British Collies and their history, and their American cousins. Chapters include: - Origin - History - Blue Merles - American Collies - The Typical Collie - Breeding - Foods and Feeding - Kennelling - Exhibiting - Common Ailments. This is a fascinating read for any Collie enthusiast or historian of the breed, and also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Originally published in 1864, 'Moods' was the first book produced by Louisa May Alcott under her real name and pre-dated her hugely popular novel 'Little Women'. Written for a noticeably more mature audience then her most famous works, 'Moods' revolves around the intersecting lives of an abolitionist spinster and a fallen Cuban beauty. Louisa May Alcott (1832 - 1888) was an American short story writer, novelist, and poet most famous for writing the novel 'Little Women', as well as its sequels 'Little Men' and 'Jo's Boys'. She grew up in New England and became associated with numerous notable intellectuals of her time, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Henry David Thoreau. Other notable works by this author include: 'An Old-Fashioned Girl' (1886), 'Eight Cousins' (1869), and 'A Long Fatal Love Chase' (1875). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
Women's fashions during the second half of the nineteenth century offered a delightful display of styles reflecting English, French, and American tastes. This comprehensive treasury of more than 900 crisp black-and-white illustrations &#8213; arranged chronologically and dated by year &#8213; provides a rich pictorial record of clothing styles from that period. Suitable for a wide variety of graphic projects, these cuts will especially appeal to artists and illustrators in search of finely rendered images of authentic Victorian fashions. Selected by graphic artist Carol Belanger Grafton from such vintage sources as Harper's Bazar, La Mode Illustrée, Peterson's Magazine, Godey's Salon de la Mode and Frank Leslie's Ladies' Magazine, the cuts brim with clear detail and old-time flavor as they record a wealth of evolving styles &#8213; from ornate gowns of the mid-1800s, widened by hoop skirts and elaborately enhanced with ribbons, ruffles, laces, and bows, to turn-of-the-century fashions that produced leg-o'-mutton sleeves, narrowed skirts, diminished bustles, and high-necked bodices (except for evening wear, which exhibited a more daring neckline). Here, for copyright-free use, are hundreds of elegant dresses accented with intricately embroidered designs, shirtwaists featuring lace inserts, and row upon row of tiny pleats, tightly laced undergarments, wide-brimmed hats topped with feathers, flowers, and ribbon; beaded handbags, magnificent parasols, fur-trimmed capes, and much, much more. An invaluable reference to period clothing styles for designers, illustrators, and costume historians, this magnificent archive &#8213; with its entertaining glimpse of the fashions of yesteryear &#8213; will also delight casual browsers and lovers of Victoriana. 'A superb resource.' &#8212; History in Review.
It was the year 1904, and the country was again ready to re-elect former &quote;Rough Rider&quote; Teddy Roosevelt to another four-year term in the White House. The Panama Canal was underway and the nation was growing, opening opportunities for those who would dare to dream and turn their hard work into reality. For Thomas J. Armstrong, it was a new position as head keeper of the Michigan City Light Station. This new title offers a glimpse into Michigan City maritime history, from the storm of 1913 that left the lighthouse practically buried in ice, to the capsizing of the Eastland on its way to Michigan City, one of the worst marine disasters in the history of the Great Lakes. The light would guide mariners until its relocation to the Michigan City Lighthouse Museum in 1980, where it is on display today.Michigan City Lighthouse is a collection of over 200 vintage photographs and postcards dated from 1909 through 1920, taken by lighthouse keepers Fred Dykeman, Thomas Martin, and Thomas Armstrong.
