ScienceDaily (Nov. 5, 2010) It's commonly accepted that we appreciate something more if we have to work hard to get it, and a Johns Hopkins University study bears that out, at least when it comes to food.
"Basically, what we have shown is that if you have to expend more effort to get a certain food, not only will you value that food more, but it might even taste better to you," explained Alexander Johnson, an associate research scientist in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins. "At present, we don't know why effort seems to boost the taste of food, but we know that it does, and this effect lasts for at least 24 hours after the act of working hard to get the food."
Swiss researchers Philippe Masset and Jean-Philippe Weisskopf have a new paper out claiming to demonstrate that if you add wine to a portfolio of financial assets, that decreases your risk, increases your returns, and helps you out (if you care about such things) on the skewness and kurtosis fronts as well. Leslie Gevirtz writes up the results here, and Reuters graphics supremo Silvio DaSilva has even put together some pretty charts from the paper here.

Wine can be complex or simple but several books can help clear any confusion.

Is organic food really better for us or is it just a con? We take a closer look behind the label.
What is organic?
Organic agriculture is defined as a system of farming based on principles of human, animal and environmental health. At its core, organic farming is about avoiding the use of agro-chemicals to minimise damage to the environment and wildlife. But the jury's still out on whether it does the climate any good.
NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - No kick from Champagne? Sparkling wines from around the globe can be a cheaper alternative and better value, according to leading experts.
"We noticed a real trade down from Champagne to sparkling wines," said Chris Adams of New York's Sherry-Lehmann Wine and Spirits.
Shipments of Champagne worldwide plunged almost 35 percent for the first nine months of the year, according to the Comite Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne, the champagne producers' professional body.
PARIS (Reuters Life!) - Prestigious Paris restaurant La Tour d'Argent made over 1.5 million euros ($2.2 million) from auctioning off a selection of wines and liqueurs from its cellar, one of the finest in the world.
The sale of 18,000 bottles out of the 450,000 stored in a maze of dark alleys beneath the restaurant, located on the left bank of the River Seine, was meant to clear some space and raise funds for the purchase of new wines and for renovations.
