ING Americas donates $ 250,000 to Peru Earthquake Relief Funds

According to ING Americas, ING Americas has recently donated $ 250,000 to relief efforts after the tragic earthquake in Peru on August 16. The donation was made for the International Red Cross and UNICEF. Peru has recently seen another of the world during national tragedies often with a very strong earthquake that killed many people and brought the occupied city in ruins. ING has made this donation, in part because they hold most of their activities in Peru. Their business operations include asset management, pensions, as well as life insurance. “The devastation in the affected areas is overwhelming, and ING companies and workers in America are willing to provide financial support in this time of response and recovery,” said Tom McInerney, ING Executive Board member, chairman and chief executive officer ING Insurance Americas. “As a member of the business community in Peru, we are committed to supporting the relief effort, as we have a responsibility to the countries where we operate and our employees live.” In addition to their generous donation, ING has established an employee of the company giving program that includes incentives for workers across the Americas to give their personal contribution to this area that is in bed all the help they can get. ING has also established a relief fund through the International Red Cross, known as the earthquake in Peru Disaster Relief Fund. This fund also gives employees the opportunity to donate money to the areas affected by this natural disaster.So many people must wonder what ING is in reality if they are willing to play an important role in all this earthquake and since this company is obviously international . ING works with several companies that serve their clients under the ING brand as well as a workforce of over 120,000 people in the global financial institution. Global financial institution? ING offers insurance, asset management, and banking for more than 50 countries for a total up to over 60 million corporate, institutional and private world. amazing.For Quite the Americas alone, ING is responsible for carrying out jobs for 28,000 people. And that is not only the United States. Other regions are in Mexico, Chile, Peru, Canada and Brazil. It ‘refreshing to see a company of this size is not really worried about all profits and is willing to help the community. Most companies are only concerned about profit and not take the time to set up emergency funds and money for them, never thinking that one day could be in the same situation of these poor people of Peru. Two thumbs up to ING for their Americas generosity.SOURCEING

Bargain two reds from Chile: Is either a great value?

Chile has a long winemaking tradition. In recent years his wines have received more attention around the world, both for their quality - and in some cases, their exceptional value. Here, we test two red wines from Chile - a Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon - and assess their quality and price points. Four geographic areas surrounding the Chilean wine region, the Andes to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Atacama Desert in the north and a series of claiers in the south. The barriers isolate Chile, the protection of the vineyards and the creation of a wide range of wine regions.Review, Caliterra Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon. The Caliterra Reserva Cabernet is a fairly inexpensive Chilean selection. It is from the Valle Central region of Chile. Caliterra is one of the larger wineries in Chile, produces almost half a million cases of wine a year.In the glass, shows Caliterra Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon as a very deep magenta. On the nose shows a dark, brooding, charred grape quality.the palate is like sweet and charcoal, which slightly sweetened, blackened plum fruit up into the sides of the mouth. Fat end, moving to alcohol. Three out of five stars. The price makes it an outstanding value.Find Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva at WineZap.Review, Cono Sur Pinot Noir.Like Charlie Brown’s attempts to football that Lucy always gets up from his foot kick, I think try the elusive value Price-to-find Pinot Noir. Consider Cono Sur my last run in this so-far mostly unsuccessful effort.I is mentioned that I enjoy the Veranda Pinot Noir from Chile. But two caveats: the porch is from a different area, and sells for about twice the price of the Cono Sur.So, let’s see what the Cono Sur offers … In the glass it is bright, even, ruby red - bright, beautiful, but not suggestive of depth.The nose is promising - though clearly un-Pinot Noir-like. It is light, bright, almost floats - like a new, fresh beaujolais.Sipping, you notice a twang of Pinot Noir strawberry and a touch of Lemony acids. It brings the bright flavors of the center of your palate, then fades quickly to a high, easy to complete. Not to criticize, but not a worthy contender in my search for the “world’s best value Pinot Noir. Two out of five stars on the Spirit of Wine scale. My hunt continues … Find Cono Sur Pinot Noir to WineZap.

You can never go wrong with fuzzy, rattly fling-puffs! (Medium catnip mouse, Luma’s current favorite.)
However, it’s not as soft and fluffy as her belly by far; that’s a space tiger trade secret!

To finish, here s a traditional Australian song that i as a nondrinker who continually moans that this place is run by the liquor & gambling industry can fully endorse as a spiritual expression of several things. Also -true story- i drove there once it s in the mlddle of nowhere (&of course there s more than one “real” pub w n b) & 15 mins close on our dry dusty rattly road we realised that pub wouldnt have an automatic teller machine.

The Look of a King

When Geoff was too young to remember, his dad got sick. The only part of the man’s voice he remembered was him coughing, the faint rasp of the oxygen machine. He’d asked his mom when he was older what had happened, long after they’d moved in with his grandmother, and she had simply said “Asbestos made him sick,” and he had stayed up all night fearing asbestos like it was a person, the name of a monster that could hide under his bed.

His grandmother, her voice rattly from decades of smoking cigarettes, used to make him sit with her while she smoked, because she said she was too old and slow and she needed young eyes to make sure she didn’t drop any ashes. So he sat next to her while the home shopping network showed hours and hours of pretty things that they could never afford, and he would be quiet until she blew out a puff of smoke, put her hand on his head, and said “You have the look of a king about you, Geoffrey.”
