Sarah Tavel Joins VC Firm Benchmark

However, at a couple of tastings I was introduced to wines from the south of France, particularly the Rhône and Provence areas, and I fell in love. These were inexpensive, tasty, food-friendly wines that were not super complex but approachable. For years afterwards I’d recommend them to friends and family as a fun alternative to $10 Australian and Californian bottles. I think at that price point you get better quality from the casual regions of France, Spain, and Italy. Since that injury, I went from being able to run 10 minutes continuously to 4 miles comfortably, and fast. At the beginning of this year, I began to push my running boundaries and play around with the physical limits I thought I had. Armed with a new knowledge and understanding of the body and how to fine-tune it, I decided to sign up for the Brooklyn Half Marathon, and do whatever it took to cross that finish line. I went from never running more than 4 miles in October, to gradually pushing myself (with only 1 run weekly) to 11 miles. Like so many things I’ve experienced these past 5 years, I expected the race to be a challenge the whole way. I expected it to be painful and grueling and a struggle until the end. But, shockingly, it wasn’t.Tavel

This is true rose wine. It is fermented dry, if one closes their eyes the tastes are of red fruits. In the States, we have been trained that rose wine is like- white zin, with residual sugar making it sweet and fruity. This is a dry wine. Most are made to be drunk young, although a few are designed as gastronomic wines and are intended to be age worthy. The color is vivid pink, partridge eye. The nose yields flavors of ripe red fruits- strawberry, cherry, and raspberry with some white pepper notes. The taste is crisp with well balanced acid and mineral and a lingering finish of the fruit. Some of these wines, particularly those intended to age, undergo malolactic fermentation and have a rich creamy texture which coats the mouth.

The Trump administration may be trying to convince the moderates that their concerns are being taken care of, but Senate GOP leaders may not have a lot of new arguments to make. They’ve already added $115 billion (including opioid money), and they’re reminding the moderates they can’t do much more without losing the conservatives.

Cryptozoology is the search for strange animals usually thought to be fictitious, or at least extremely rare. Read about the possible explanations for these stories, as 3 common ones are considered. The cooler climate makes it a popular retreat for Nairobi residents and two adjacent national parks bring in the occasional foreign tourist.

Why this is happening now: Policymakers are hoping to respond to complaints from employers about a lack of qualified workers, but economists are also warning that ex-convicts’ absence from the labor force could be a long-term headwind for the economy too.

Digging deeper: When the recession hit in 2008, job growth dipped well into negative territory for most industries. Previous recessions affected certain sectors more than others, but the financial crisis attacked almost every part of the economy. As most industries were shedding jobs through 2009, only health care seemed to fare relatively well.
