The Wine Down – Garagiste Festival and Paso Robles Wines EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Stewart McLennan and Doug Minnick, who run the Garagiste Festival in Paso Robles school us on the distinctions and points of pride of being a (very) small winemaker. Their festival exposes many small local labels that operate under the radar of most purchasers, but exceed the quality of most Chateau brands. They clue us into some of the labels that’ll be featured at the scenic fest, and also illuminate how to keep wine makers and drinkers approachable to eachother. We taste several gorgeous local labels and get our mouths wet for Paso Robles. GUEST BIOS: Stewart McLennan has been a Garagiste for over a decade. Though until recently never used the term “garagiste” to refer to himself or his (mis) adventnering he now finds garagiste the most apt way of describing both his present self and his future winemaking aspirations. Stewart was instrumental in forming Brothers of the Barrel in 1991. A group of guys from differing backgrounds and professions who came together to learn about winemaking through the process of drinking beer and making wine. The Brothers have now been making wine for over a decade and, yes, it isn’t half bad — scoring various medals over the years at Paso Robles’ California Midstate Fair. For the past three years Stewart has been involved in all aspects of wine marketing from the tasting room to national distributorship. He has worked for Four Vines Winery in this capacity and as such has gained valuable

Can someone answer this, why has medicare turned down more claims than any private insurance company?

Question by imnoangel512: Can someone answer this, why has medicare turned down more claims than any private insurance company?
Obama has portrayed the insurance companies as evil but yet gave existing government run plans a pass. Can we expect anything better from what they are trying to do now? At least with the private plans, you can find another company; you won’t have any choice with the government.

Medicare is the worst “insurance company” in the country. Ask ANYONE who works in the healthcare field who actually deals with insurance. It is overrun with fraud, waste, and they pay below market on many procedures.

Many providers don’t participate in medicare because it is such a hassle to do so.

Internet News | LimeWire file sharing site is shut down in the US

Lime Group spokeswoman Tiffany Guarnaccia appeared to acknowledge their defeat “We are out of the file-sharing business, but you can make it known that other aspects of our business remain ongoing” An injunction issued by the US district court in New York has effectively shut down the much loved LimeWire, one of the internet’s biggest file-sharing sites. It ends years and years of wrangling between the privately-owned Lime Group and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The injunction compels Lime Group to disable its searching, downloading, uploading and file trading features. The firm plans to launch new services that adhere to copyright laws soon. Visitors to the LimeWire website see a legal notice that reads: “This is an offical notice that LimeWire is under a court ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software.” It adds that “downloading or sharing copyrighted content without authorisation is illegal”. We wish them well, although the authorities are involved in a big crack down on illegal file-sharing.

Can I point my domain to my blog if my hosting goes down on my site for any reason without effecting SEO?

Question by Angela C: Can I point my domain to my blog if my hosting goes down on my site for any reason without effecting SEO?
A couple of times NetSol hosting has gone down on my site with nearly 6000 products.

I am paying for PPC now on Nextag, PraceGrabber, etc and am paying to send people nowhere. Ugh!

Is there any way to point my domain name to a page on my blog or something when it recognizes hosting is down or something?

Is there another option for handling these potentially lost leads with hosting down??

Answer by Metapilot
First of all, it takes some time for a change in name servers to propagate across the internet. It’s faster than it used to be but you still need to expect 12 to 48 hours for internet traffic to be rerouted. That means that the time it takes for the internet to know it needs to go to the host of your blog instead of Netsol can take one half of a day or more. And then, to change back to your original site/host would that about the same amount of time. That right there may be enough of an answer for you–without even addressing SEO.

From an SEO perspective, you’ve got more to loose than you have to win by following your strategy and since outages aren’t typically for really long periods of time, you’d really just be spinning your wheels.

Implementing a 302 redirect from your domain at Netsol to your blog wouldn’t be effective either since, if the hosting platform is down, your host servers wouldn’t be able to respond with the redirect information when a browser requests your site.

I’d recommend a new host if this is a recurring problem. In my experience, NetSol’s expensive for what they provide (I used them 5 or 6 years ago) and you can get better quality hosting for the same price elsewhere.

You could turn off your PPC when this happens. I don’t know much about PPC on Nextag or PriceGrabber and whether you can turn it off on the fly but you could if your were using Google AdWords.
