    Re: What is mid-rnage premium wines ,jug wines, and wine coolers?

    A jug wine is a less expensive variety of wine that is usually sold in large glass jugs. It is the type of wine an average person or family might have at home with dinner.

    Premium wines are the most expensibr varieties. They are at the high end of the quality and price spectrum. Some premiums can run thousands of dollars per bottle; a mid-range premium would probably cost anywhere from $20 to $100, depending upon the type and vintage.


    2. What is the meaning of get around it in the following pragraph?
    ..."This issue of competition has been a sticking point before for the Department of Transportation when two airlines wanted to get together.How will Texas Air get around it this time?"...


    "Get around it" means to cut through red tape, to avoid rules or regulations, to take bureaucratic short cuts in order to get something approved.

    3. I am always confused about the meaning of anyway in many cases.I can't catch it exact meaning? Please review the following paragraph.

But I want you to keep in mind that unrestricted fare of the kind people Express offered, you know , wholesale unrestricted fares ,were being eliminated and phased out anyway because they were not profitable...


    In this case, "anyway" means the same thing as "regardless" or "nevertheless." The first person being quoted is making the theory that if there are only a small number of airlines for consumers to choose from, the ticket prices will increase because there is less competition. The second person is disputing this theory. He points out that People's Express (an airline that operated in the 1980s) offered deeply discounted fares, and they still didn't attract enough passengers and had to go out of business.

    4. In the following , I think though, and nonetheless have the same meaning?Why are they used together?

    "My audiences have been very devoted over the years throughout the country. And they have expanded and grown and the country audience has been ust as kind and as supportive as the fold audience has been."

    "I was thinking though, nonetheless, when i put on this album, 'The Last of the True Believer,' especially the title cut, that I heard more country there than I'd perhaps heard before."


    Yes, in this case "though" and "nonetheless" both mean the same thing. Why did he use both words? Some people are just unconsciously repetitive when speaking.

    and what does the word cut mean here?

    On a record album or music CD, a "cut" refers to an individual track or song. The "title cut" refers to the title song; that is, the song that the album is named after. For example, the song "Imagine" is the title cut on John Lennon's Imagine album.

    5. What does prose hero mean?
    He is my main prose hero.


    A favorite fiction author.

    6. Please explain Duo call Duo Guar buranco to me?

    It should say "duo called Duo Guar Buranco." A duo refers to two people. In this case, it refers to two people who perform together musically under the name Duo Guar Buranco.
