The Antique Wine Company Fine and Rare Wine

The Antique Wine Company, based in London has been dealing in fine and rare wines and courtesy their brilliance in the taste and quality of their produced wine they enjoy to vendor to more than 20000 customers who are situated in more than 70 countries. The company produces exceptionally fine wine and has currently more than 10000 wine bottles as inventory in their cellar. Not to mention, the company finds itself as record holder for containing the most number of wine bottles as collection.

The company was found back in the year 1982, as mentioned earlier in the city of London. The region is Marylebon in the central London where the ground breaking of the company took place. The company holds the record of having sold the most expensive white wine ever, the wine bottle under discussion is the 1811 Chateau d’Yquem and the price that it was sold on is a steep 75000 pounds. The buyer of the wine intends not to sell it forwards nor does he intend to make an investment out of it, rather he intends to drink it saying that “wine is for drinking” and that he has worked hard to earn this money, rather than having taken the money right out of his packed wallet.

In the year 2013, AWC Global PLC which is a Public Limited Company based in London became the parent company of the Antique Wine Company’s regional trading corporations. Currently, it is engaged in a program expanding years to cater traditional and antique wine markets. Another shining part of their portfolio is that they provided fine antique vintage wines to the former president of the United States, H. W. Bush who turned 70 years. To make things up to the event, the vintage wines were also 70 years old.

The company made a purchase worth 110000 pounds at the auction of Hospices de Beaune in which the purchased lot contained 460 liters of the rare Corton red wine. Apart from simply selling off rare and fine wines, the company also specializes in the provision of classes for mastering wine sciences and in planning the constructions of cellars for the purpose of wine production. Company CEO Stephan Williams said that what he aimed for was to make a wine that people would like to buy time and again after having tasted it once. The staff of the company comprises of just 15 people and the turn out that he expects from the company courtesy his efforts is more than 20 million pounds.

Creativity 404

 

It is annoying when you click on a broken link and see the 404 page of a website. However, some websites like Bloomberg are trying to console users for this tragedy by coming up with amazing 404 pages that make you stare at the screen for a full minute. At least, you leave with a smile on your lips. The following are some amazing 404 pages on the internet that Lins Andrade released yesterday

• Hot Dot – The 404 page of Hot Dot has ‘404’ written with the help of tiny dots that respond to the movements of your mouse.

• Bluegg – Bluegg has captured your agony at landing on a 404 page perfectly by offering you a goat screaming like a human. It is usual for humans with humor to watch the goat at least 3 times before silently trudging back to the rest of the internet.

• Magnt – Magnt’s 404 page is actually pretty clever, complete with a Venn diagram showing that the 404 page appeared because ‘you can’t type’ and ‘we broke something’. There is also a call to action there.

• GitHub – GitHub has amazing 404 and 500 pages for its geeky audience base. The 404 page uses parallax effect and Star Wars to get you on board.

• Tumblr – This is the website where art meets sass, and the 404 page mirrors that. The background is Tumblr blue but the message is dripping with sassy subtexts.

Mark Ahn Points to Office and Business Tech Trends for 2015

Tech trends come and go, so being on the forefront of these different rends is extremely important. Mark Ahn, Ph.D. has been in the business world for over 20 years now, although he has also served in the armed forces and in academia. With extensive leadership experience, Mark has a very interesting insight onto what the market is going to determine as the most important and valuable tech trends for 2015.

First of all, caring is essential for any sort of modern tech. The designers need to not only care about the product itself but it needs to prove assistance to those who use it. It is easy to see the difference between a tech service designed just to make money and one that the designers truly cared about. When a product is cared for, it is going to develop and become something far more important to users. With the growing of different tech fields, Mark Ahn points out that it is these carefully designed products that are sure to become much more beneficial and influential in the coming year.

Beyond this, while brand new tech is not always likely, new approaches at old problems is. There are all sorts of different problems out there that have been using the same method of solving the issue for years, if not decades. It just takes the right development of technology to save both time and money, which in turn is sure to make it that much more valuable and beneficial for any office or business.

On top of it all, companies need to look towards the little guys. This is because it is the small tech companies that are actually developing the most creative technology. It just doesn’t always become implemented into modern tech until a larger company buys it up.

Can Women Make Inroads In The Employment Market?

The good news for women in the working world is that they are completely able to make the inroads that they need to in order to make a big difference in their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Already, nearly half of the workforce is made up of women. This is the highest number in the history of the country. However, since only 14.6% of women are currently holding executive positions, Susan McGalla believes that it is a good idea to go over some ideas that may help put more women in those positions.

Higher Education Is A Must

Higher education used to be something that was generally optional. There was once a point in time when those who graduated from high school could secure a good paying job and make a living for their family. This is not really the case anymore at this point. There are too many jobs that require a higher education in order to work there. With this in mind, women should attain a higher education.

Project Confidence To Succeed

Confidence is a must in the workplace. It is something that helps people gain respect and often helps them to climb up the ranks of their particular profession. It is a good idea for women to project confidence in their work and try to show this to their superiors. It can be the difference between those who advance in their career and those who are not able to do this.

The Glass Ceiling Must Be Ignored

The glass ceiling looms large for a lot of women in the workplace. It is a sad reality that this ceiling does exist. However, some of the most successful women in the workforce are those who are able to ignore this glass ceiling and move forward on their plans to be successful in the workforce regardless of the glass ceiling.

Famed Investor Sam Tabar’s 2015 Investment Recommendations

Famed lawyer, investor and businessman Sam Tabar is out with his 2015 recommendations which have been profiled on a report by CNBC. While he provides some traditional advice, he also gave a few out of the box ideas to make this year the best yet for investors.

Firstly, Tabar recommends that novice or amateur investors stick to what they know best and invest in diversified, stock market or mutual fund investments. Diversification tends to provide more consistent, stable and positive returns over time. A broad swath of the market including cyclical and non-cyclical firms

On the other hand, Tabar advises to keep out of commodity markets if you are not an expert. While oil, gas, gold and other commodities are in the news, they are not to be played by most retail investors. These products are extremely volatile and can quickly erase a sizable investment. While volatile commodities provide the potential for huge gains in a short period of time, odds are that an investor without the appropriate education, market expertise or in-depth knowledge will not be able to capitalize on these potential gains.

Tabar also recommends investing in the growing world of socially conscious enterprises. He personally invested in a socially conscious private company called THINX which is a women’s undergarment manufacturer that also donates sanitary cloth pads to supply needy young women in Africa.

While private enterprise investing may be a little more risky, it can provide alternative psychological and moral benefits to the investor. In addition, social investments continue to grow with more companies taking in more funding, providing a bright future for the industry. Entrepreneurs continue to innovate in the social enterprise space, with more people leverage new technologies and the internet to provide ground breaking solutions.
