The Everlasting Influence of OG Sommelier Belinda Chang

  The Everlasting Influence of OG Sommelier Belinda Chang Before sommeliers became “somms” and everyone was either drinking “dirty” or “clean” wine, Belinda Chang was building some of the most spectacular wine programs in America. She has held her own in a trinity of cities—Chicago, San Francisco and New York—even when there was no one that looked like her working as a sommelier. But Belinda is determined. When we met for a video interview at nine in the morning, I was still drinking coffee and hadn’t brushed my hair yet, while she popped on the screen with red lipstick and earrings.

KAMPALA, Uganda - Armed police on Wednesday “besieged” the campaign headquarters of Bobi Wine , a pop star and politician who is seeking But in a Twitter post Wine reported that “comrades had been injured” after police “ raided ” his headquarters and seized documents and other items.

There was no immediate comment by the security agencies.

Bobi Wine, who has been arrested several times in recent years, has captured the imagination of many young Ugandans with his persistent calls for President Yoweri Museveni to retire. Since he expressed his presidential ambition, police and the military have repeatedly dispersed his rallies and beaten and detained his supporters.

Museveni, 76, has ruled Uganda since taking power by force in 1986. Critics accuse him of relying on the armed forces to stay in power. He is able to seek another term after the legislature voted to remove constitutional age limits on the presidency.

Museveni accuses Bobi Wine of encouraging young people to riot and has charged that people associated with him are “a misguided group being used by some foreigners to destabilise” Uganda.

Bobi Wine aims to end Museveni’s 34 years at the top of the East Africa country, which has made him Africa’s third-longest-ruling president.

His youthful age and music have earned him a large following in the relatively young country of 42 million, rattling the ruling National Resistance Movement party and drawing a security crackdown on his supporters.
