Champagne: Commodifying the women who built an empire
"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!" Dom Pérignon, the French monk (incorrectly) attributed to discovering champagne, is romantically remembered exclaiming this as he sipped on the effervescent beverage in the 17th century (Epstein, 2011). Pérignon was followed by many other men in characterizing the refined beverage that is enjoyed at celebrations all over the world. In thinking of champagne, one might, as Becky Sue Epstein reminisced in her history on champagne, imagine popular male characters like James Bond enigmatically sipping on champagne, or male athletes popping a bottle open in celebration. Champagne is a drink synonymous with starry skies, black cocktail dresses, and the flowery words on a page of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. He even famously wrote, "I'll drink your champagne. I'll drink every drop of it, I don't care if it kills me." It is universally accepted as a mood setter, an aphrodisiac as Catherine the Great was convinced (Epstein, 2011). It is recognized as a toast to celebration and accomplishment, Epstein (2011) writing, “champagne continues to be the beverage that signals special occasions and celebrations, no matter what the climate or the economy is like – in life as well as on screen” (p. 11). Historically, champagne has represented this idea of celebration since is acceptance in the 17th century, however, it has celebrated men and sexualized women despite the feminist champions who built the champagne empire as a whole.Talia NicolePublished 10 months ago in Proof
"In What Furnace Was Thy Brain?"*
*From "The Tyger" by William Blake Most amino acids build proteins. Undeniably important, they are the basis of the body's structure. Nevertheless, some amino acids have other roles, roles that help sew together the vast complex of protein structures into a seamlessly moving, thinking creature.D.

The Many Faces Of Fire Water
Moonshine is a high-proof liquor with a rich history. It gets its name from the illegal practice of making it. There are no rules to creating moonshine. Just four ingredients; cornmeal, sugar, water, and yeast, and simple equipment. It doesn’t require time to mature like wine, so it can be drunk on the same day it was bottled. The simplicity of making it is what attracts a lot of people to brew it at home. This smooth, slightly sweet, beverage began in Britain around the 15th century and is still being made today, despite its illegal status in most states. June 5th is the day we honor moonshine. So, today we’ll discuss its many uses outside of having a good time.M.L. Lewis
10 No-Fuss Cocktails for St. Patrick's Day
Every year for St. Patrick's Day, my husband and I celebrate in a rather heretical fashion: the American way. In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is not a boozy holiday, but a religious reminder of Saint Patrick and all of his kind deeds. Like most holidays, this Americanized Irish celebration has strayed far from the original intention and meaning, and been replaced with a favored popular pastime; drinking. So, in celebration, I have for you ten of our favorite easy to make cocktails to enjoy at home.E.L. Martin

To Kir, or Kir Royale?
Despite being the plebeian I am, I have been fortunate enough to have traveled well-beyond where I was born here in the United States of America. In fact, I can't actually remember the state where I was born. I was too young, and we moved when I was six months old due to my father being re-stationed. He was in the military.Mimi SonnerPublished 2 years ago in Proof

ARTHUR C. CLARKE PREDICTED THE FUTURE
ARTHUR C. CLARKE PREDICTED THE FUTURE It's a 1964 BBC documentary. Arthur C. Clarke is the man; he worked with Stanley Kubrick to produce 2001: A Space Odyssey. You turn up the volume and are shocked by your own ears. What is Clark saying about the world in which we may quickly touch each other? He is describing our present as if he were standing right next to you, so what exactly is he saying? When Clark was discussing messaging apps, he mentioned how we would be able to contact our pals from anywhere on Earth without having to know where they were. That does sound a lot like using a smartphone. Clark, Mr. The device will remember your friend's number so you won't even need to know it. In the 1960s, manufacturers were just beginning to transition from rotary dial phones to push button phones, but Clark saw further into the future of communication. He told a tale of how a person would be able to conduct business from Haiti or Bali as if they were in London. It was a BBC show, so it's not surprising that he mentions the English language.Francis Anisiba
