To most Westerners say the word Russia and two things pop into their heads, beautiful women and vodka.

This week Russia will still have beautiful women but wine will be the drink of choice as many people are celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau Day. Wine connoisseurs will be enjoying some of France’s best vintages in bars and establishments all across Moscow.

For the past 11 years Russia has participated in the annual event. In Moscow, the celebrations have been held exclusively in French restaurants and bars, but this year many other locations will host samplings of the French wine “Beaujolais Nouveau”.

Under the Soviets enjoying wine was discouraged. It was looked upon as something that only the upper class and aristocrats consumed. Recently, wine has begun to make a comeback in Russia. French wine is by far the favorite of Russian wine drinkers.

Beaujoalis Novuveau Day began as a way to promote the French wine industry and particularly the Beaujoalis region of France. Originally, the light red wine was just consumed locally but following World War II the rules were relaxed to allow the wine to be exported. Today, Beaujoalis Novuveau Day is celebrated in more than 120 nations.

To enjoy the full bounty of Beaujolais Nouveau, it  should be drunk soon after it is prepared. If not, the taste is spoiled and can not be fully enjoyed.

The next time you see a charming  Russian lady ask her if she raised a glass this year to celebrate Beaujoalis Novuveau Day.

Who knows,via the magic of wine, maybe next year you can toast the day together?

By whisky I mean any type (bourbon, scotch ect) and also what mixers you have with it and why. Also can you say how old you are, I’m 14. I have single malt whisky and have it neat, I find that adding water or ice takes away some of the flavour.
And Queen Bee, why shouldn’t I be drinking at 14? I don’t binge drink every night or drink to get drunk, I respect whisky and drink it slowly.

Every Human Being’s Right

Even so, there is little doubt that water is one drink should be clean and free of contaminants, no matter one is living in impoverished lands or in the more affluent nations of the world. Getting clean as well as safe drinking water is the prerogative of every human and getting proper as well as clean drinking water an inalienable right of the human race and it is the responsibility of governments to ensure its supply. Getting regulated drinking water can be either through municipal water treatment plants or water well servicing at a campground.

Today, one may even be in awe of the latest contaminant treatment methods being used to obtain pure drinking water. Nevertheless, the human race has, from ancient times, taken steps to ensure that the water they drank was fresh and very often, they judged the quality of drinking water from its taste and were unaware that even best tasting water could be impure. According to historians, there is evidence to support that water treatment was practiced in ancient times and that boiling water was an effective means in eliminating impurities. Even as early as 1905, it was found that keeping water in copper vessels that were exposed to sunlight and then filtered through charcoal could purify water.

Water and The Industrial Revolution

With the coming of the Industrial Revolution, the many steps taken in obtaining clean drinking water found a new horizon opening up and there was need to cleanse and purify water off the many chemicals that had begun to contaminate drinking water. It gave rise to newer and more sophisticated water treatment methods to purify water that had begun to be contaminated, due to the side effects of the Industrial Revolution.

In present times, countries with gigantic populations such as India and China are desperately in need of supplying their populations with clean drinking water. China has set a goal of providing every Chinese with pure and clean drinking water by the year 2020. In this direction, they are planning on ambitious long term projects to tackle the problem of clean drinking water that is seriously hurting the quality of life of its rural population and, threatening millions of these inhabitants.

There are more than one billion people that do not have access to clean drinking water and unsafe drinking water is the greatest killer of children aged less than five years. The access to clean drinking water will enable women and children to devote time to more gainful pursuits and attend schools or plant vegetables. There is thus, plenty of concerted effort being directed in achieving the goal of providing clean drinking water and, even countries such as India, have put their weight behind providing children and women access to clean drinking water.
