What is the difference between vino santo and vino cotto?

Vin Santo is made from dried grapes. This concentrates the flavours in the grapes, which are then crushed, and the concentrated juice is fermented. The result, a sweet wine, is aged in either old oak casks (for the traditional slightly oxidised version) or in steel (for the fresher, modern style). Vino Cotto is made in the Marche, and is not legally wine at all, so is made almost entirely for local consumption. It is made by crushing grapes and then boiling the resulting grape must down to about half to two thirds its original volume. VinCotto (from the deep south) is then aged for any period in old oak casks without being fermented - it's used as a condiment, an addition to recipes. Vino Cotto IS fermented, in old oak casks, for several years, and the result looks and tastes rather like Madeira.

What is the difference between dead weight tonnage and gross tonnage?

Deadweight (DWT)and displacement are expressions of physical weight. and GRT was a calculation of the number of 100 cubic foot 'boxes' a ship could accommodate in its enclosed space. NRT reflected the same figure, but just for the money earning spaces. Now the figure is based around cubic metres and is adjusted with a sliding figure to bring it more into line with the tonnages it was replacing. Deadweight is how much the ship can carry, while displacement is how much water the ship has to move out of the way. Tankers and bulk carriers will, more or less, have DWTs roughly two-thirds to double the GT. A container ship will have a DWT in close proximity to its GT, while passenger ships, gas carriers, and car carriers will have quite small DWTs compared to their GT. To understand this a bit better, a cruise ship has lots of enclosed space. But the weight of the people it carries - even if they've overdone it on the buffet each day - isn't great. A tanker of equivalent GT on the other hand, is full of oil and this weights a lot more.

What is the difference between a simple majority and a two thirds majority vote?

For a majority system, all that is required to reach a decision is that a majority of voters prefer one alternative to another. In a two-thirds majority system (also known as supermajority), two-thirds of voters must prefer one alternative to another for it to be decided. This means more support is necessary under supermajority than under simple majority rule.

What is difference between the absolute majority and simple majority?

A two-thirds majority means that 2/3 of a voting body is required to agree to something. A simple majority means that one vote more than 1/2 is required. For example, in the U.S. Senate, a 2/3 majority is 67 out of 100 senators, and a simple majority is 51 out of 100. In the case of a tie vote of 50 yes votes and 50 no votes, the Vice President, who is president of the Senate, casts a vote to break the tie.
