Toronto Film Review: ‘Human Traces’

Isolation is anything but splendid in “Human Traces,” a slow burn Kiwi psychological thriller about married scientists whose lives are upended when a handsome newcomer arrives at their sub-Antarctic research station. From a slightly stuttering start, the film recovers nicely with “Rashomon”-style flashbacks that craftily manipulate audience assumptions, expectations and sympathies. First-time feature writer-director Nic […]

Twitter Tests Doubling Character Limit For Tweets To 280

Twitter announced today that it has started testing 280-character tweets for select users. The new limit doubles the current 140-character limit, and is said to help users be more expressive. The Verge reports: "Our research shows us that the character limit is a major cause of frustration for people tweeting in English," the company said in a blog post. "When people don't have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people Tweeting -- which is awesome!"

About 9 percent of all tweets today are exactly 140 characters, Twitter says. It's tough to do that on accident, suggesting that users frequently have to edit their initial thoughts to get them under the limit. (It's certainly true for me.) Now Twitter hopes to ease that burden by doubling the character limit in what it calls "languages impacted by cramming," which includes every language except for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. The report goes on to note that the "140-character limit was originally established to reflect the length of SMS messages, which was how tweets were distributed prior to the development of mobile apps.

Georgia Brewery’s Controversial Facebook Photo Casts Spotlight on Consistency

When you ask a new brewery owner the hardest part about its first year in operation, they usually tell you it’s licensing, or learning how to schedule brew days to keep up with demand. Rarely do you hear how rapid growth can create headaches for a small brewery, but that’s the complicated space where the founders of Atlanta’s Scofflaw Brewing find themselves.
Scofflaw — a word for people who “scoffed” at anti-drinking laws during Prohibition — blasted into the Atlanta beer scene in September 2016, their juicy IPAs an instant hit. Co-founder Matt Shirah tells us they were “blindsided by the reception” they received, which led the small brewery to triple brewing capacity in nine months.

Booming business sounds like a good thing, but swift growth comes with problems, and for Scofflaw Brewing, that problem has been making consistent beer.

Great Divide Brewing Company Introduces Chai Yeti

DENVER – September 22, 2017 – Great Divide Brewing Company is excited to introduce a new addition to their Yeti clan, Chai Yeti (9.5% ABV), an imperial stout brewed with traditional chai spices. With this Himalayan-inspired variation, the brewery is bringing Yeti back to its roots.
“Chai Yeti is a natural fit to the Yeti lineup,” said Brian Dunn, founder of Great Divide Brewing Company. “We thought the chai spices would work well with the chocolate and roasty malt character of Yeti.”
Not only does the flavor profile match perfectly with the beer, it also transports the drinker to the Yeti’s homeland as this new variation is a nod to the Yeti’s home region of the Himalayas. The connection between the geographic location where the mythology surrounding the Yeti was born and where the chai spice flavor originated is a natural play.

Traditional chai spices of cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla blend seamlessly with Yeti’s rich, roasted malt backbone for a spicy beast fit to tackle Everest.

Unicorn Milk Beer, an Accidental Success Story

Unicorn Milk is a funny name for a beer. But like the mythical creature it’s named for, the beer has a magic power that’s surprised even the brewer who created it.
Eric Troutman is the head brewer and co-founder at Twenty-Six Acres Brewing outside Charlotte, North Carolina. When Twenty-Six Acres opened in fall 2016, Eric and his co-founders, Wes Ports and Joel Padgett, figured their top-selling beers would be their IPA and wheat ale. But the beer that’s in high demand is the strangely-named Unicorn Milk, a vanilla cream ale with blueberries that Eric thought he’d only make once.

Creature Comforts to Release Table Beer this Fall

Creature Comforts Brewing Company will release its next seasonal, Table Beer, on draft and in 12-ounce cans this October. The beer was designed specifically to enjoy with food, family, and friends. This beer was released last Fall under the name Epicurious.
“The idea of a Table Beer is not new, and in fact it is practically the genesis for beer,” said Co-founder and CEO Chris Herron. “Our goal was to design a beer that serves as a complement to food rather than a distraction – something unpretentious, that is meant to simply be enjoyed with friends around the dinner table.”
In order to accomplish the intent of the chef-inspired brew, Creature Comforts sought insight from a number of the top chefs in Athens and Atlanta to gather feedback throughout the process of bringing the beer to market. Table Beer is simply a beer that best complements drinking with food and friends.
Ryan Smith, Executive Chef of Atlanta’s Staplehouse and Peter Dale, Executive Chef and Owner of Athens’ The National, were two of the top local and regional chefs that helped the brewery by providing the brewers with perspective on the beer when it was originally brewed in 2016.
