Bear-ly turning on the charm

first_imgBERLIN Thousands of people line up at the Berlin Zoo each day to see Knut the polar bear cub, and his button-eyed face has become inescapable for many others who live far from the capital. Knutmania is in full swing in Germany, where the fluffy baby bear has become the latest merchandising sensation, inspiring Knut T-shirts, mugs, postcards, DVDs, key chains, candy and stuffed teddy bears that cost up to $40. Knut shares the cover of the current issue of Vanity Fair with no less than Leonardo DiCaprio, with photos by Annie Leibovitz. He has the cover of the German edition all to himself. Born at the zoo Dec. 5, Knut – who was rejected by his mother and hand-raised by zookeepers – rose to fame last month thanks to television and newspaper pictures. – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

New PureWine gadget aims to ease symptoms of wine allergies

first_imgNew PureWine gadget aims to ease symptoms of wine allergiesPosted By: Contributoron: October 03, 2018In: Beverage, Industries, Innovation, New products, TechnologyPrintEmailUS wine filtration firm PureWine has launched a new product which filters and aerates bottles of wine and alleviates the symptoms of wine allergies.Called The Wave, the gadget is said to remove the histamines and the sulfite preservatives which trigger allergic reactions in some consumers after drinking wine. PureWine was founded in 2014 by Dr David Meadows and his son Derek who both suffered from wine headaches and experienced allergic reactions to red, white and sparkling wines.“I had these symptoms myself for years, so I really wanted to understand what was happening,” said Meadows.“Science had never really looked at the allergens in wine, but I knew that what I was experiencing was a classic histaminic reaction. My son and I spent three years in the lab to prove it, but now we know: it’s the histamines, most prevalent in reds, as well as the sulfites, common to all wines, that cause allergic reactions to wine. Once we understood the biochemistry, the solution was obvious.”He added: “Over 35% of US adults over 18 years old and up to 70% of US women over 50 suffer from occasional to chronic allergic reactions to wine. This is a big problem hiding in plain sight.“We are delighted to provide wine lovers with a way to alleviate the symptoms of wine allergies and to help more people enjoy the unique pleasures of wine. So many of our customers tell us that they had been avoiding wine altogether because the headaches and the side effects were too unpleasant… until they discovered PureWine.”PureWine holds five global patents on its filtration and restoration technologies that selectively remove histamines and sulfites without changing the natural character of wine. Share with your network: Tags: PureWineUSlast_img read more
