As Independent Booksellers Week gets into full swing, the Booksellers Association has released figures to suggest outlets with cafés are likely to have higher sales than those without 다운로드.

Figures based on a survey of 40 BA members reveal that bookshops with cafés saw a 3% growth in overall turnover in 2011, whereas those without experienced a decline in sales of 5.2% 닌자 고 동영상 다운로드.

California has lost its Republicans – not one holds office in our most populous state

Fading into irrelevance
The party of Nixon and Reagan holds not one statewide office in America’s most populous state

California gave America two of its five most recent Republican presidents 다운로드. But the state party has fallen on hard times since the days of Nixon and Reagan. After having fallen for decades, the number of registered Republican voters in California now stands at just 30% (see chart) 백분 토론. With the number of voters expressing no party preference rising fast, the party is in danger of slipping into third place in the state. No Republican holds statewide office in California, and the Democrats enjoy wide majorities in both chambers 한컴오피스 2014 뷰어 다운로드.

The picture is no prettier when it comes to elections for national offices. Republicans have not won a Senate election in California since 1988 다운로드. The party now accounts for just 19 of the state’s 53 congressmen. The last Republican presidential candidate to take California was George Bush senior 안드로이드 게임 다운로드. As the most populous state, California holds over one in ten electoral-college votes.

Craft beer is rising in America – matching the elegance of beer in Europe

This column is focused on “craft” beer, as opposed to the big brands that still dominate beer sales worldwide. The terms “craft beer” and “micro-brew” are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are actually distinct from one another 다운로드.

Micro-breweries produce less than 15,000 barrels of beer per year, while craft beer can be produced by breweries of much greater size.

So what exactly is “craft beer?” The Brewer’s Association (the trade group for craft brewers) offers their own definition 워킹데드 시즌3 다운로드. They say a craft brewer must be small, independent, and traditional.

  • By small, they mean annual beer production of no more than two million barrels of beer—Boston Beer, maker of Samuel Adams, is teetering on the brink of this limit and has about a one percent share of the U.S 다운로드. beer market. Many local brewers produce less than a thousand barrels a year.
  • By independent, they mean that no more than twenty-five percent of the brewery can be owned by a big brewery like A-B, Miller, or Coors (the Big Three) 우드잡 다운로드.
  • Traditional is the hardest to pin down, as they state a traditional brewer is one that has “an all malt flagship” or which uses “adjuncts to enhance rather than lighten flavor”—a subjective matter 서유기 선리기연 다운로드. That’s a dig at the Big Three who use adjuncts (corn or rice) to lighten body and flavor and increase mass appeal.

New corporation type – B Corporation – for sustainable “benefit corporation”

Despite the posh and circumstance, Sundance is still committed to independent films

Sundance Institute founder and president Robert Redford made it clear during the Sundance Film Festival’s opening press conference Thursday afternoon that Park City and Sundance are two different places 다운로드.

“Sundance is not Park City,” Robert Redford said to a group of international journalists at the Egyptian Theatre. “It’s a place where this all started back in the 1980s when I started up the labs.”

The labs, Redford referred to, take place at the Sundance Resort, some 40 miles away from Park City, where filmmakers develop and create their films 영어 성경 듣기 다운로드.

“The festival is a part of (the Sundance Institute), but in my mind, the stronger part, the more meaningful part, is the development part where our labs are,” he said 문명 6 몰려드는 폭풍 다운로드.

The year-round filmmakers labs have expanded over the years because of the film festival’s success.

“We are able to include documentary labs, short-film labs, producer labs, all those elements that have to do with storytelling,” Redford said 다운로드.

Still, with its expansion and success, the institute’s mission hasn’t changed since it was founded 28 years ago.

“Our mission is pretty simple,” he said 시장놀이 다운로드. “It is creating a platform for independent artists to show their work.

“This is the only festival that I know is truly independent in the world, and it’s the only festival that has a year-round workshop attached to it.”

Redford’s annual “state-of-the-festival’ speech was followed by comments from Keri Putnam, executive director of the Sundance Institute, and John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, which runs through Sunday, Jan 아랑사또전 다운로드. 29.

“It’s no secret the times are dark and grim and in addition to that, we’re suffering from a government that is in paralysis,” Redford said 다운로드. “The happy thing is here, for this week, we’re going to see works of artists, although they may reflect these hard times, there is no paralysis here.”
