|The Big Chill
It’s the classic dilemma – how do you chill a
lukewarm can of beer or bottle of wine and do it
quickly? Enter the Blast Chiller – a new feature
in LG Electronics Inc.’s premium refrigerators
available later this year – which promises to turn
that room-temperature 12-ounce can brew (or
soda) frosty in five minutes. Want to chill a
bottle of wine? Eight minutes. It’s the
same amount of time to cool two
cans at the same time.
LG said the new technology blasts the cans with
icy-cold air gusts with the power of a jet engine.
(This is not a joke.) In order to ensure that ice
crystals don’t form, the system gently swirls the
cans while the cold air blows. The company’s
work developing other home appliances played a
key role in the development of the Blast Chiller.
The jet-powered cooling system stems from LG’
s work developing its air conditioners, while the
gentle shaking is derived from its work in
building washing machines.

Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putinpleased football fans
by promising a review of the current ban on the sale of beer
at Russian football stadiums. Russia is due to host the World
Cup for the first time in 2018. Russian law even prohibits
beer adverts on football pitches.
Why is beer froth always white?
Beer foam consists of tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide the
walls of which are made up of various proteins and
carbohydrates. Because of that the bubbles reflect all the
light creating what we see as white.
This years winners of the annual World Series of Beer Pong
are Matt White and Ross Hampton who came out on top
after beating out 449 teams to take home the $50,000 prize.
Hampton said the secret to his team's success in the
tournament was "staying sober to play well consistently."
Gloria Crisantes Salazar, 39, was arrested for transporting
beer from Tennessee to Alabama. She had 15 cases
containing 40-ounce bottles of Bud Light in her vehicle.
She was cited for ransporting untaxed alcohol into Alabama

transporting more than 5 gallons of alcohol in her vehicle
and for having the alcohol in the backseat rather than in
the trunk. Total possible sentence one to six years in prison.
What people will do for Bud Light.
