******************************************************************************************** And now for the specific blog entires ..... 6) WINE TASTINGS BLOG REPORTS The main weekly assignment that I most heartily encourage is a blog report where you buy a bottle to have at home, conduct group tastings with your fellow students, or go out to wine tastings at local wine shops (not wineries!) on the weekends/whenever and write up your [extensive] tasting notes on your blog. You can do these for 5 different wines each week (Sunday midnight to the following Sunday at midnight). You need to include a photo of the wine label (***that you have taken yourself! NO IMAGES FROM THE WEB!!!***) the name, variety, region, country, year, price, the winery/magazine review (found online) or whatever information they give you at the store, and your personal review of the wine , and if you had it with food or not. ***Let me again make this perfectly clear: all pictures used for your blog entires must be taken by you personally. NO IMAGES TAKEN FROM THE WEB are allowed, even of the wine labels. Does not have to be professional grade quality, just do your best.*** Format for the wine tasting report: Title: Tasting - "Wine name" In the body of the blog: Photo Name Variety Region Country Year Price Shop/wine critic/winery review (these will be cross-referenced with info provided by the shops to us) Your review (this is in your own words and opinions, it IS NOT a re-wording of the provided shop/critic review) If you had it with food or not and if you did how it effected the wine. example: Each wine review is worth 4 points, and you can do up to 5 per week, for 14 weeks of the semester, so it is possible for you to earn a whopping 280 points...and more importantly, you will have an awesome log of all your wine experience to carry with you into the future.

To earn the points, you must have posted your tasting notes for up to 5 wines EVERY WEEK! You cannot wait until the last weeks of class to post 50 wines at one time! The TA's will grade your blog sites every week during the semester, so retro-actively post-dating your blog entries for weeks earlier won't cut the mustard either. Again, the deadline for each week is Sunday night at midnight. Just to make it perfectly clear, here is the schedule for those tasting blog entries: Week 1 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday January 27 (Grades won’t be posted till Feb 2) Week 2 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday February 3 Week 3 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday February 10 Week 4 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday February 17 Week 5 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday February 24 Week 6 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday March 3 Week 7 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday March 10 Week 8 You can turn in up to 5 tasting entries due by Sunday March 17 DURING SPRING BREAK!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
