Your guide to choosing the right type of grape

So in this portion of  The Wine Portal (I think we meant to call it the grape portal) by The Order Of The Iron Phoenix , we will cover numerous types of grapes, what they require and how to start producing them. Remember, almost all grapes can do the same type of action, this does not mean that there are not certain types that do certain tasks better than others. Please note we will isolate this section to grapes common to North America and Western Europe. A general tip for planting any grape is to place a 2 meter pole above the vine the second you see it beginning to sprout. Tie strings to the plant and pole as it grows taller or support it's weight, cut the strings when the stem becomes strong enough to support it's own weight. Still keep tying the branches to posts, making the post taller...

Starting your own grape vine

When you initially decide that you either want fresh , sweet, plump grapes, or you want personally-produced wine, you are faced with a ridiculous situation: where do you start? Grape Vine   Well, we will take your hand step by step and then suggest some books if you would care to continue your research. Lets begin at the basics: You must first decide this: 1) Do I want one grape vine? 2) Do I want a grape vine farm? Like with anything else, grape growing has the potential to be very profitable. By very, we do mean that pretty much anyone can grow grapes and start selling them at a farmer's market, or maybe even negotiate a contract with a larger distributer, essentially making more profit. Some other things you can do with grapes: -non alcoholic grape cyder -grape jelly - raisins (although this is a tough niche to get into)...

Aardvark

An aardvark is an odd creature that few know about, but it is the first word in any English dictionary. So, allow us to tell you about this creature. Well, for one, its not an anteater, contrary to popular belief. It's closely related to pigs and wild boars genealogically. The aardvark's diet consists of mainly termites, roots and wildflowers. They are one of the most common animals in southern Africa, so no need to think they will ever go extinct.  Researchers say this animal has lived for some 20 thousand years, and is much older than mankind. aardvark Did we mention aardvarks are very cute ?

Indian power outage leaves 600 million powerless.

The power grid in the entire country recently collapsed rendering millions powerless, crippling train transportation, grocery store power, refrigerators, cold water, hot water and possibly everything else. Many people could possibly die as India is very poor and requires importing of most of It's food and water supplies. Thousands stay in line as the public transportation just stays on the rails, powerless.   As of now, we have little word of the entire scenario other than that this is one of the worst disasters of 2012. More on this as the issue persists. We also wished we had coverage in someone that spoke better English ;)

The joker killer

James Holmes, an absolutely pitiful human being, came into a theater, wearing a gasmask , threw in some smoke bombs, and opened fire on innocent civilians.  He ended up killing 12 and injuring another 59. The sickening part is really that the schizophrenic sap thought he would be a joker copycat, he fantasized about being the villain and decide to prove himself. Pictures of his fantasies have been found in his apartment. 24 year old Holmes also had a journal which appears to depict him as an attention seeking , mentally ill child. Perhaps if someone found these earlier, 12 innocent people could have been saved. As for our opinion? We believe that a person of this mentality has proven himself to be unfit for a human rich environment, a death sentence appears to be the best solution for such a sickening, and cowardly child. Although we personally condone the death...

How the origin of the word "miracle" lies in pagan practice

Perhaps you are familiar with the word "miracle" in association with whatever religion you openly or secretly practice. But did you know that the word "miracle" which is nearly identical in all Romance and Teutonic tongues has it's roots in the ancient pagan worship of Zeus's loveliest son Hercules? Well, the origin of the word comes from a common Latin phrase "Me Hercule" which derives from an earlier Greek phrase, which at this moment is meaningless. It just translates to "my Hercules" so , you end up saying "my Hercules" every time god heals a man. And why? Because Hercules was indeed the miracle child in Greek mythology, forged by the gods, to save humanity from the paranormal. We would toast to that ;) POLLAIUOLO - Hercules Fights The Hydra In oils

Merchant vessel sunk off the coast of Saudi Arabia

Accordingly, yesterday a six-man boat was fired upon by the US navy sailing 12 miles south west off the coast of Saudi Arabia. The reason being that the boat (being a siple fishing boat with no technology) did not respond to warning signals, and thus was identified as hostile and sunk. All six persons on board succumb to their injuries and sink to the bottom of the sea.  As of today, we dont have live coverage or pictures, simply because it's an isolated incident involving military personnel. You can read more about Incidents related to this here: https://theorderoftheironphoenix.com/piracy  Sunken Iranian Vessel

Well, there is a species of cat christened the  Savannah Cat . Savannah Cat This cat comes in at an impressive 5 feet from tail tip to nose. Its known to weigh up to 100 lbs, plays fetch and is great with other pets, children and even dogs. In essence, the cat is really more of a cheetah than a house cat, the only thing house-cat about it is It's adorable head and playful behavior. Researchers say that breeding housecats with wildcats results in a huge drive to be "naturally aggressive", this of course is a load of bull. The Savannah, as oppose to even most dogs, can be taught to walk on a leash , use a litter box, play fetch, swim (which...

Do you hate speaking with robots?

Ok, so this is going to all come from personal experiences. Yes, I'm going to write about my boring old life today, and although you may not care to read this, I want to make a VERY valid point. The scenario So, yesterday my cable box stopped working properly, I use Comcast due to my excessive like of movies. Anyways, I'm the type of person that NEVER has time to watch television. So, I really throw a solid 80$ out of my pocket every month (yeah it's pretty cheap for 999 channels I never watch).   And to my dismay, the cable box was not working. And so, this being the first time in months I had to watch television, I naturally decided "heck, why not call the support team , after all I pay them right?" . So I picked up the good old cell, found Comcast's number and gave them...

Another cannibal attack rocks the world

July 1, 2012, south east china: a crazed bus driver high of drugs and alcohol is said to have come across a youth driving a car , beat the car with a stick until the youth attempted to flee , and pounced on her, devouring her face, as she screamed for help. This is a very eerie scenario following the recent cannibal attacks in the western and mid-north united states. Perhaps it was not bath salts after all, perhaps something far more devious is solely responsible for recent cannibal attacks. The woman whom had been attacked and mauled should be ok , save the fact that reconstruction surgery will be necessary to make her look human again. The bus driver on the other hand will probably be put to death in accordance with Chinese law. The reason behind this attack seems to be alcohol (not that this has ever happened). To...

Why do you really feel like your in love with your cat?

A very cute cat Do you ever get that warm feeling around your cat? Its the same feeling you would get being around people you find physically attractive. Well, you are not alone. Millions of people worldwide are falling in love with their cats sexually. And it's not their faults. Norwegian scientists have recently updated their research on a cat born parasite called  Toxoplasma Gondii. This parasite lives exclusively on cats (and who can blame it, nobody can resist their charismatic charm).  So, this parasite causes men and women of the human race alike to pick up a cat and start snuggling with it. This is because the parasite really has this whole "brain control" thing down, causing people infected to pick up their cats and snuggle with them, causing the parasite to travel onto the humans and ,subsequently, into the human ear canal and human brain. There, the new parasites...

United States withdraws troops from Europe

Recently, the United States government and the combined board of military leaders (allied) has announced that U.S troops, who have been in Europe for 80 something years now, will be withdrawn back to the United States. There are currently about 80,000 United States troops in Europe. The government has predicted that having this many men in stable countries would simply be "too costly" to uphold. In addition to costs, most of the troops stationed in Europe end up being moved to the Middle East or Asia anyways, so keeping them there at the moment seems to be completely useless (other than as a midpoint). As of July 1st, an estimated 7,000 troops will be withdrawn. The US will then reposition these troops in parts of Asia, South America and Africa where they "are needed". The other 70k will eventually also be moved. Although no known deadline for this move exists, we...

Will The End Of The World Simply Be The End Of Mexico?

Will The End Of The World Simply Be The End Of Mexico?
So, as you may all know, near the end of the year two thousand and twelve of our lord, the world will be destroyed and recreated again (as theorized). We are not talking about Nostradamus (because his account places it years after 2012) , we are talking about the Mayan prophesy. Yes, the thousand-year old doomsday calendar that somehow ends near the end of this year!   Let’s just say that the Maya people predicted everything correctly, as we can confirm that they have marked out constellations and geographical shifts/events to the preciseness of one day. Scientists are baffled at the accuracy of this calendar, and it really stuns us the more we personally read about it. So, let’s say that because it simply ends near the end of 2012, the world will be destroyed (and the guy writing the calendar didn't just get lazy and sleep on the job). But...

Turkish Plane Shot Over Syrian Air Space Causes Growing Tension

Early this morning, a Turkish phantom jet was shot down over Turkish air space by a missile coming from Syria. This incident simply seems to create more tension between Syria and the rest of the world. Syria claims that all proper security precautions were taken (a signal given) prior to anti-aircraft artillery striking the plane down. Worryingly enough, Turkey condemns the act of violence as an act of belligerence towards the two "politically different" Middle Eastern countries. There will be a NATO meeting in Brussels within the next week to discuss the matter, in the meantime Turkey has withdrawn all of its diplomats from Syria claiming “their lives could be jeopardized". A Phantom Jet
