The Internet in takes up quite a large part of my life, oddly enough, I can surf the Internet and on social networks, perhaps even the whole day.
I mostly use the internet for communication rather than anything else. But besides communication, I often watch anime over the same Internet.
Studying via the Internet is actually not as easy as it seems, maybe because of the WordPress itself, a slightly inconvenient application in itself. but in general, I like learning via the Internet, because it is very convenient to find information on the Internet about which you need to write or tell. however, this is not the only reason for the comfort of learning on the Internet, because you do not have to carry a bunch of books with you. After all, the Internet plays a very large role in our life, because we are developing and streaming to the future, too, mostly through the Internet.
Japan is one of the most beautiful and unusual countries, where even Christmas holidays are celebrated in a very interesting way. Usually many Japanese go to temples on New Year’s, pray, and Japanese girls wear long, closed and beautiful dresses called kimano at such traditional events.The arrival of the new year is announced with 108 bells. They say that there are 108 pernicious worries, and each blow drives away one of them, bringing only happiness in the coming year.
On New Years in Japan, their traditional games are often played, and it is also considered a tradition to give money to children, this tradition is called otoshidama. Money is usually placed in small decorated envelopes called potibukuro. The amount of money that is put in an envelope depends on the age of the child, but if there are several children in the family, then the amounts are usually the same so that no one feels deprived.

1. Drinking red wine in small doses is better for you than not drinking at all!
It might come as a surprise, but several human trial studies have shown moderate red wine consumption to be better for you than not drinking at all. Why? The antioxidants found in red wine lower incidences of cardiovascular disease, mortality, and type-2 diabetes. Of course, if you drink more than you’re supposed to, the benefits are replaced by increased health risks. So, do yourself a favor.
2. Red wine’s health benefits come from tannin.
Pretty much everything in wine that’s not alcohol or water is a type of polyphenol. Polyphenols include tannin, color pigment, wine aromas, resveratrol, and about 5,000 other plant compounds. Of these polyphenols, the most abundant in wine for health reasons are Procyanidins, which are a type of condensed tannin also found in green tea and dark chocolate. This compound is specifically associated with inhibiting cholesterol plaque in blood vessels, which is highly beneficial to heart health and longevity.
3. Some red wines are better for you than others.
Not all red wines are made the same. Some wines have significantly higher levels of “good for you stuff” than others (condensed tannins–see above). For example, Caberbet Sauvignon has more condensed tannins than Pinot Noir, but both wines have much less than Tannat, Petite Sirah, or Sagrantino. While it’s rather difficult to determine which wines are best (exactly), here are some clues:
- Dry red wines are better than sweet wines.
- Red wines with lower alcohol (preferably below 13% ABV) are better than high alcohol wines.
- Red wines with higher tannin (those that are more astringent) are better than low tannin wines.
4. Young red wines are better for you than old red wines.
We’ve been told for years that old wines are the best wines. It’s true that some wines taste better when well-aged, but when it comes to the health aspects of wine, old wine isn’t as good! Young red wines contain greater tannin levels than any other type of wine.
5. The color in red wine comes from the grape skins.
The color in wine comes from a plant pigment called anthocyanin, which is found in the skins of red grapes.
6. As red wines age, they become lighter in color.
The color becomes less intense as wine agesVery old wines are pale and translucent in color.
7. Nearly all red wines are made from one species of grape.
All of the most common red wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are of just one species of grape: Vitis vinifera. There are certainly other species used for wine (there are some 65-70 vitis species), but they are very rarely used for wine. Vitis vinifera is commonly considered the wine grape species. And, get this, Vitis vinifera didn’t originate in France. It came from Eastern Europe!
8. Red grapes are older than white wine grapes.
The yellow and green-colored grapes that produce white wines are thought to have originally come from a DNA mutation of red grapevines. This is a pretty convincing hypothesis, since Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc share the same DNA.
9. Red wines commonly contain less sulfites than white wines.
In general, sulfite levels in red wines are lower than white wines. This is because red wines tend to be more chemically stable than white wines and do not degrade as quickly.
10. Red wine grapes can be made into white wine.
Because the color comes from grape skins (and not the juice), it’s possible to make a white wine out of red grapes. The wine is made like white wine without contact with the grape skins. This happens more than you might imagine. For example, a Blanc de Noirs Champagne is a white sparkling wine made with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (red) grapes.
