outstrip (third-person singular simple present outstrips, present participle outstripping, simple past and past participle outstripped or outstript) (transitive)
1570s, "to pass in running," originally in Lyly, perhaps from out- + Middle English strip "move quickly, make a stroke" (in reference to a weapon). c. 1400, a word of uncertain origin, perhaps from stripe (n.). Or outstrip might be a corruption of outstrike (15c.), from strike (v.) in the old sense of "go, proceed, advance." The figurative sense of "to excel or surpass in anything" is from 1590s. Related: Outstripped; outstripping. The punning references to strip (v.) date from late 19c.
Based on the quantity and quality of the resource (ie. wind speed, sunshine hours) together with other human and physical markers of suitability (eg. slope, elevation, temperature, population density, proximity to transport links etc), the maximum possible potential for wind and solar power across all 21 countries, outstrips projected demand in 2030 by at least a factor of two, according to the results.
"Organizations increasingly find it difficult to be proactive against competitive pressures, which is resulting in their mobile apps becoming tactical, rather than strategic," said Mr. Leow. "We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity, making quick creation of apps even more challenging. Mobile strategists must use tools and techniques that match the increase in mobile app needs within their organizations."
For the first time in modern history, Americans spent more on spirits than beer in 2022. And the US spirits industry has Mexicans to thank for it.\nThe Distilled Spirits Council of the US (DISCUS) reported today that spirits made up 42.1 percent of alcohol spending, passing beer, which dropped to an all-time low of 41.9 percent. Wine's share declined for the fifth year in a row to 16 percent \u2013 its lowest share since 2002.\n\n\n\nRelated stories:\n\n\nSpirits Roll Out the Barrel\n\n\nBourbon Leads the Whiskey Boom\n\n\nUS Wine Industry in a Tailspin\n\n\n\nHard seltzers, which have been in decline, were classified as beer for this comparison.\nThe rise of spirits was led by the ongoing boom for Tequila and mezcal. Sales for the Mexican spirits were up 11.5 percent by volume and 17.2 percent by value. Tequila and mezcal are now second behind vodka in dollar sales, a meteoric rise for a product that must be made by chopping down an agave plant that takes eight years to grow.\nAmerican whiskey also had a big year, with sales up 5.2 percent by volume and 10.5 percent by value. American whiskey holds the second position, again behind vodka, in total volume sales.\nOverall, the spirits industry raked in $37.6 billion in 2022.\n\"Despite the tough economy, consumers continued to enjoy premium spirits and fine cocktails in 2022,\" said Chris Swonger, DISCUS president and CEO. \"Cocktail culture continues to thrive in the United States supporting jobs in the distilling, hospitality and agriculture sectors.\"\nThe rising booze tide did not float all boats equally. Sales of Canadian whisky dropped 4.1 percent by volume. Brandy and Cognac, which seemed to be booming before the pandemic, dropped 12.9 percent by volume. Rum sales dropped 2.8 percent by volume.\nAmong imported whiskies, Americans spent more for less Scotch. Sales of Scotch single malts were down 2.8 percent by volume but up 3.8 percent by value. Blended Scotches showed a similar pattern, with volume sales flat but revenue up 4.6 percent.\nIrish whiskey continues to thrive, with sales up 4.4 percent by volume and 6.9 percent by value.\nPercentage-wise, the hottest spirits on the market are ready to drink cocktails, which went up 37 percent by volume. Ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktails now account for double the revenue of gin and are close to equalling rum.\nSwonger said one of DISCUS' legislative goals for 2023 is to lobby states to treat spirits-based RTD cocktails equally with ready-to-drink products based on malt liquor, like hard seltzers, or wine. Swonger said 45 states have higher taxes for spirits-based RTDs even though the alcohol percentages of the products are similar to hard seltzers. He said that in Maryland, spirits-based RTDs are taxed at a rate 17 times higher than hard seltzers and other malt-based products.\nMuch like wine tourism, distillery visits have become big business. Michael Mariano of Tourism Economics said that 2 million non-local people visited distilleries in Texas in 2022. New York distilleries had 1.7 million non-local visitors, while California distilleries had 1 million.\nThe spirits industry is less reliant than pre-pandemic on on the hospitality industry. Sales of spirits at restaurants and bars made up 20 percent of revenue last year, 5 percent less than in 2019. People making cocktails at home made up the difference.\nThat said, DISCUS reported that the hospitality industry has 750,000 fewer jobs than it did in 2019, and that if the US goes into recession, more than 50 percent of restaurant owners said they would lay off employees.\nThat wouldn't be good for spirits sales, but on the other hand, when people are out of work, maybe that's when they really need a drink.","datePublished":"2023-02-10 00:00:00","dateModified":"2023-02-10 00:00:00","author":"@id":"https:\/\/www.wine-searcher.com\/bios","publisher":"@id":"https:\/\/www.wine-searcher.com\/#person","isPartOf":"@id":"https:\/\/www.wine-searcher.com\/m\/2023\/02\/spirits-outstrip-beer-for-us-drinkers\/#webpage","image":"@id":"\/images\/news\/85\/74\/8574210727663e55d47_spirit1.jpg","inLanguage":"en-US","mainEntityOfPage":"@id":"https:\/\/www.wine-searcher.com\/m\/2023\/02\/spirits-outstrip-beer-for-us-drinkers\/#webpage"}]} Latest News and FeaturesThe Most Wanted Proseccos in the World
The demand for remote work opportunities has skyrocketed as more businesses adapt to the flexibility of a COVID-19 world, but it has far outstripped the available supply of work-from-home jobs, according to a new report.
According to the US Energy Information Administration, the world is consuming approximately 99.82 Mb/d of liquid fuels, with global production projected at 99.93 Mb/d for 2022. While that may seem sufficient, we must highlight the fact that Russia accounts for 10.9 Mb/d of production in FQ3'22, while also exporting 7.7 Mb/d in October 2022. With the country reportedly not accepting the price cap imposed by G7 and preferring to cut some production ahead, it does not take a genius to surmise that global demand will continue to aggressively outstrip supply. Analysts are now projecting a drastic -1.7 Mb/d decline in the Russian output (the equivalent of -1.7% of global demand) by December 2022, due to the worsening geo-political events.
