Chehalem was the only Oregon winery to win an award.“We felt an obligation to develop a refreshed brand that represents the history and quality of the wines,” said Gary Mortensen, President of the Stoller Wine Group. “Chehalem has always over-delivered in quality for the price. We wanted the packaging to reflect this philosophy. The reaction to date has been overwhelmingly positive.”Chehalem is a tenured brand, producing wine for more than 30 years, pre-dating the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Working with design firm CF Napa, Chehalem took an intentional approach to celebrate its name, which means Valley of Flowers in the Native American language, Calapooia. The team also focused one of its estate vineyards, Corral Creek, which is home to the winery. The site has iconic wavy rows, which added a key element in the design process, and from that a much more elegant and elevated package naturally flowed. Competition Judge, Curtis Mann said, “Anyone who is familiar with Chehalem knows that their wines are excellent examples of quality Oregon Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. However, their original label had lots of color, making it look like an entry level Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The new label has a distinct market, classic look and clear, forward messaging, making it look like an upscale choice in the category.”About Chehalem WineryYou learn a lot about Pinot Noir as a pioneering producer. This invaluable experience allows us to make classic Oregon wine – wine we’re proud to share. Known for our single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and a progressive approach to white wines, we farm three unique estate vineyards planted in three distinct winegrowing regions in the Willamette Valley AVA. A staple of the Downtown Newberg wine scene, our Tasting Room is open seven days a week. Old school winemaking, Oregon style!

And the only really good Communist is…

Posted On Apr 20 2021 by

first_imgBut one of the nice things about being an Economist journalist is that we have a team of fact-checkers (a species otherwise unknown in British journalism), who delight in catching us out. Sophie, the stellar fact-checker responsible for my survey of Poland (published this week) scoured reference books for details of every government and president since 1989 – and couldn’t justify the 18-month claim. The real answer, she insisted, was 33 months.I was puzzled by this, until a wise friend put me right. This 18-month claim is arguably true – if “ex-Communists being in power” also means any government in which former Communist party members have held office. By that count, for example, Leszek Balcerowicz, seen by many as the hero of the capitalist counter-revolution, counts as an “ex-Communist”. That’s a clever smear, because Balcerowicz, now the governor of the national bank, is just the kind of arrogant free-market liberal that the current government dislikes. The feeling’s mutual: many members of the Warsaw economic and cultural elite feel that their country is being run by hicks and bigots. This is not just a squabble about the arithmetic of political history. It goes to the heart of a big philosophical and moral debate in all post-Communist countries. What level of collaboration with the Communist regimes of the past is acceptable? There is no simple answer. It is hard to find anybody, in politics or outside, who grew up under Communism and is wholly pure, and competent, and alive. You can have any two, but not all three. In particular, governments composed solely of ex-dissidents, however heroic, have a pretty disappointing record: squabbling, unfocused and even corrupt. Yet admitting that sleazy ex-commies are the only people efficient enough to run things smacks of defeatism. Even for non-believers, religion is helpful in making sense of this. First: don’t confuse saints and priests. Ex-dissidents are saints; good politicians are priests. Many saints would be disastrous pastors; equally, some of the best clergy I have known have had chaotic, even scandalous, personal lives. Their unworthiness doesn’t necessarily impair their ministry – and can even help it.Second, be ready to make moral judgments. These are rather unfashionable in an era when people like to talk of “inappropriate behaviour” rather than wrongdoing. But there’s no way out. Everyone who lived under communism made some sort of moral choice. To honour those who chose bravely, some disapproval of those who were cowardly and vicious is vital. Collaboration with the Communist system is like a criminal record: it may (or may not) have been minor and a long time ago, but it is there and it is wrong, and there is no way round it.But third, accept the possibility of redemption. There are ex-Communists who readily accept that they were wrong-headed pawns (or worse) in a monstrous, murderous, conspiracy. Many rejoiced in the collapse of the evil empire; many now are determined to help repair the damage. Such uncaptive minds are quite different from nostalgic ninnies who mourn the semblance of full employment and social welfare they remember liking in the old days. And still more different (and far, far worse) are the unrepentant, with their cold eyes and steel-clad consciences, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and his ex-KGB cronies.

Atomos and SIGMA Now Offer RAW Recording Over HDMI

Posted On Dec 20 2020 by

first_imgAtomos and SIGMA just announced RAW recording over HDMI with the fp mirrorless camera and Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder. Together the fp and Ninja V will record Apple ProRes RAW at up to DCI 4Kp24 or UHD 4Kp30 directly from the camera’s full-frame sensor. It will also be the world’s first mirrorless camera to record RAW over HDMI video in HD at 120fps for amazing high speed shots. ProRes RAW gives creators amazing creative control with flexibility to adjust the color and look of the video, while extending brightness and shadow detail. Footage can be finished in the highest possible quality and dynamic range for either HDR or SDR (Rec.709).The SIGMA fp also becomes the smallest camera combination to record ProRes RAW, opening up a wide range of shooting options. The camera’s small size means you can shoot with the full flexibility of RAW almost anywhere. The fp body is perfect for mounting as a POV or crash camera, for use on gimbals or even worn on the body. Alternatively, with the addition of Ninja V, cage and other accessories, the fp can also be built out into a fully rigged cinema-style camera with the option to use a wide range of L-mount lenses natively, or PL mount, EF mount and many other lenses via the use of adapters.The accurate 5” 1000nit HDR high brightness display of the Ninja V allows users to view the SIGMA fp RAW signal in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats for optimal exposure. The monitor also offers touchscreen access to tools like 1-1 magnification and peaking for accurate focus, plus waveform, vectorscope and false color to nail exposure for the perfect HDR or SDR shot.The Ninja V can also record 422 ProRes and DNx video up to 4kp29.94 and 120p119.88 from the standard 8-bit HDMI output of the SIGMA fp. For reliability and affordability, ProRes RAW or standard video files are recorded to AtomX SSD mini SATA drives in the Ninja V.SIGMA is the latest company to announce support ProRes RAW over HDMI. ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail, making it ideal for HDR workflows. Both ProRes RAW, and the higher bandwidth, less compressed ProRes RAW HQ are supported. Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is supported in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere and Grass Valley Edius, along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront and FilmLight Baselight.Here are the details: www.atomos.comlast_img read more

ECCB Testing Digital EC Currency and App

Posted On Sep 26 2020 by

first_imgTimothy Antoine, Governor or ECCBThe Eastern Caribbean Central Bank has launched a programme meant to transform the Caribbean economy into a digital economy with the use of a DXCD App and a new digital EC currency.Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, Timothy Antoine gives details about the new app that should revolutionise online commerce in the currency union.He told the local media via video-conference, “When we launched this pilot seven months ago, we said that there will be two phases: first phase will be a development and testing phase for about 12 months, followed by live implementation phase of about six months.“We’ve actually completed seven months. And a lot of the work for the last six, seven months have been on maintaining and development of protocols. We’re now to enter a very important phase which is user interface and testing and public education. A number of steps over the next few months are to actually engage financial institutions, finalize the requirements, engage the users and make sure that we shape and finesse the user experience in this testing period before launch. And of course, to get the public to appreciate what it is that we are doing. “ The Governor says that for an economy largely dependent on tourism, the Caribbean lags behind the rest of the world in terms of digital payment.He says 80% of transactions in the Caribbean are still with paper,  i.e. cash and cheque.Governor Antoine says the DXCD App would be easily accessible by anyone using an electronic device. “Simply, you go into the app store and download the app. You will then beconnected with partners, financial institutions and mobile providers. You scan to make a payment, the payment is recorded, and then your account gets debited, the vendor gets credited, and you get a confirmation at the end.” He is concerned by the current cost of conducting business digitally and says this factor must be revisited.The Governor of the ECCB noted that security remains priority explaining that username and passwords will be necessary and identities will be strictly verified.There are a few milestones that the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank would like to reach by the year 2025.Governor Antoine revealed, “What could the future hold for the ECCB when it comes to payments and this data EC dollar? At this moment, looking out, 2025 thereabout, we see a reduction in cash by about 50%. Cheques, by about 80%. Credit cards, debit cards, will continue, they have their convenience and we believe that they will pick up. We anticipate [their use increasing] by 50 and 40 percent respectively. Electronic payments, [will increase] by maybe about 60%.“DXD, the digital dollar, will pick up where physical cash falls off; so as we have less physical cash, we will have more digital cash. Several banks and credit unions of St. Kitts And Nevis, St. Lucia, Grenada and Antigua and Barbuda are testing the DXCD App. 337 Views   no discussions Share BusinessNewsRegional ECCB Testing Digital EC Currency and App by: – October 10, 2019 Sharecenter_img Tweet Sharing is caring!

The Backyard Golf SocietyAfter a few weeks of not having enough players to hold a competition it was nice to get to Emerald Golf Course knowing that there would be at least 10 competitors.  We welcomed back Andy M, John Mac, Russell, and Tony C and along with 6 hard core members of the Backyard Golf Society it looked as though it could be a very competitive round of golf. With a tee time of 09:20 we managed to get off early and even though the front nine greens had been sanded, the course was in reasonably good condition and quiet so it enabled everyone to get around in just under 4 hours.Andy M won the stableford competition with 33 points, just beating out Mike and Russell on 32.  Tony C won the nearest the pin prize and skin results were as follows: Andy M (5), Tony C (4), Mike (3), Russell (2), JJ (2), Andy Oz (1) and finally Terry C (1).last_img read more
