California needs 11 trillion gallons of water: NASA

California needs 11 trillion gallons of water: NASA | Hump day hot sheet -- Jackson Family Wines | Scoop.it
California needs 11 trillion gallons of water to recover from its three-year drought, the US space agency said Tuesday after studying water resources by using satellite data. The first of its kind calculation of how much groundwater would end the drought was led by Jay Famiglietti of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California and based on observations from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment satellites. California has experienced rainstorms in recent days but, while welcome, scientists warn that they are not enough to end the drought.

Wine Country vintners turn to truffles

Wine Country vintners turn to truffles | Hump day hot sheet -- Jackson Family Wines | Scoop.it

On the edge of his Sonoma vineyard aptly named Scintilla (“spark of an idea”), vintner Robert Sinskey has yanked out grapevines to make room for a few hundred oak and filbert trees. Sinskey’s not quite betting the farm, but rather 1½ acres of vineyard land in the hope that it will start producing both Burgundy and prized Perigord black truffles — the same coveted, heady tubers grown in France that can command more than $1,200 per pound. If he succeeds, he may be one of a small number of growers poised to reap the rewards of a burgeoning truffle industry taking root in Napa and Sonoma counties.

Consumers Are No Longer Brand Loyal

Consumers Are No Longer Brand Loyal | Hump day hot sheet -- Jackson Family Wines | Scoop.it
In today’s diverse new world of growing consumer demands, fueled by changing demographics and the cultural shift in the market, brands have some work to do to say the least. In the rush of business necessity and the desire to meet quarterly financial requirements from Wall Street, branding has become less about solving specific needs – and more an attempt to quickly create new revenue streams by promoting solutions for needs that don’t exist. According to Armando Azarloza, President of The Axis Agency, “This is bound to fail because it doesn’t support lasting and meaningful engagement. It’s “moment marketing” – and it will not allow you to become part of your consumers’ reality and experiences.”
