Dog Food Industry Changes with Focus on Health

Could you be convinced to eat a dish of dog food if someone told you that it tasted good? Probably not without any sort of monetary incentive, right? Well, that’s exactly the taste test that Freshpets CEO Richard Thompson is so willing to partake in, if only to show you that his product is going to change the pet food industry. Right now the pet food industry is worth almost $24 billion in annual revenue and there are companies that are constantly jockeying for position in order to bring in some of that cash.
An impromptu taste test at the Freshpet factor in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is just part of Thompson’s marketing campaign. He wants people everywhere to know how good his dog food is and just why exactly you should consider grabbing a fresh can of it for your own lovable pup. His big change, and what people all around the industry are replicating, has been to focus on offering a product that would pass the tests of human quality. This means that the food is no longer loaded with preservatives and there is a renewed focus on fresh meat rather than the cheaper, mechanically mixed garbage that shady companies tend to peddle around. Freshpet wants to focus on giving food that is quicker from the shelf to the bowl and that is why they are bringing out their refrigerated options as well.

If Freshpet sounds revolutionary to you then you really need to take into account one of the largest dog food manufacturers in the country, Beneful. Beneful has a long track record of developing healthy, beneficial pet food for dogs of all sizes and breeds. They’ve got an array of products on the shelf that can be utilized for just about every situation. Beneful was the first pet food company to use real meat in their pet food and that was one of the first big revolutions for for the industry.

What sets Beneful.com products apart from many competitors is that they are focused on creating food without filler, and that’s a huge part of the aforementioned Freshpet’s paradigm. The next time you are in the pet food aisle take a look at all of the options Beneful has on offer on sores like Wal-Mart and then look at the ingredients. It’s very telling.

Deere And All Of Her Fashion Do’s

Doe Deere is a woman that was able to start up her own cosmetic line in 2008. Doe Deere was born in Russia, and she was raised in New York. From a very young age Deere knew that she wanted to work in fashion. In 2004 Deere made her own clothing line and she would sell her clothes on eBay. Deere was her own model and she usually wore bright and colorful makeup when she would model her clothing. Deere found that the makeup that she would use was not bright and colorful enough for her taste. Deere started to experiment with makeup on her own, and she decided that she was going to try to make her own makeup line.

Deere wanted to be able to start her own business, but she did not have that much money. Deere only had a couple hundred dollars, but she had a dream and she believed in herself. Deere believes that is it is important for each and every entrepreneur to trust their gut and use their gut to help guide them in making their business decisions. Deere also believes in treating her employees, vendors, and partners with respect and dignity. That is the way that she has been able to help them to succeed.

Doe Deere recently did an article with The Bustle about her favorite fashion and makeup rules to break. Doe Deere does not believe that the fashion industry should tell her the way that she should wear her makeup or her clothing. Even though fashion stipulates that a person should wait for a special occasion to dress a certain way, Deere does not believe that an occasion should determine how she should look. Deere can be found on a given day wearing different colors, patterns, and crazy colored hair.

Fashion stipulates that a person should dress their own age, but even though Doe Deere is in her 30s, she does not believe that she has to dress like a 30-year-old. Some days Deere may choose to dress her age, and other days she may choose not to. Deere’s dress is all dependent on how she feels. Deere also likes to wear bright and colorful socks with high-heeled and open-toed shoes. Even though fashion stipulates that it is tacky to wear open toed shoes with socks, Deere breaks the rules in that aspect as well. Deere is a woman that has always fought to be her own person, and that is the reason she has succeeded as an entrepreneur.

Schlumberger Curtails Venezuelan Operations Due to Payment Worries

Venezuela’s oil industry according t FireManCapital.com is facing renewed problems as oil services giant Schlumberger has announced that it would cut back its operations in the country as a result of unpaid debts. PDVSA, Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, currently owes billions of dollars to foreign service providers. There are doubts as to when these debts will be paid, as the OPEC nation is facing economic problems amid weak oil prices and dwindling foreign currency reserves. Other companies that provide oilfield services, such as Halliburton and Weatherford International, have also reported delayed payments from PDVSA.

Schlumberger has stated that while it appreciates the Venezuelan state-run oil monopoly’s efforts to find alternate payment solutions and is committed to supporting the local oil industry, the company is not able to increase its accounts receivable balances beyond current levels.

PDVSA was already given a $1 billion line of credit by Schlumberger is 2013, allowing Venezuela to continue benefiting from their services despite mounting debts. Schlumberger has lost $49 million in 2015 and $472 million in 2014 as a result of Venezuelan currency devaluation.

In statements to local press and on social media made by Diaz Granados, PDVSA said that it “categorically denies” reports in international media that Schlumberger is winding down its operations in the country and that any additional work that the state-run oil company requires will be assigned to other providers, without going into further details.

The Lauderdale Cup that just took place was the third event in the Melges 32 Blue Water Series. The first was the U.S. National Championship held December 4-6, 2015. The second event was the Gold Cup February 12-14, 2016. All of them were hosted by the Fort Lauderdale Yacht Club.

DeVos on Volpe won the entire Melges 32 Blue Water Series because his cumulative results for all three events outscored all the entries.

Dick DeVos gave credit both to his crew and to the many other great crews that sailed in the Lauderdale Cup. He is looking forward to more great sailing. The Nationals will be held in August and Worlds will happen at the end of September.

A Bernie Sanders Win In Wisconsin Doesn’t Mean Billionaire George Soros Is Backing John Kasich’s Campaign

Billionaire investor and humanitarian George Soros on theatlantic likes to get involved in American politics. Soros is a Hungarian-born refugee that escaped Nazi rule and got a fresh start in the UK. In the 1950s, Soros made his way to the United States on http://www.politifact.com/ohio/statements/2016/apr/04/trusted-leadership-pac/no-george-soros-not-bankrolling-john-kasichs-campa/, and he landed a job on Wall Street. It didn’t take long for Soros to learn the investment game and how hedge fund investing worked. In 1992, he earned the title “The man who broke the Bank of England” for shorting the pound sterling. George Soros believed the pound would have to be devalued, and he was right. He made $1 billion on that transaction alone, according to a Bloomberg.com article.

More than 30 years later George Soros is considered one of the wealthiest people in the world, according to Forbes.com. His personal wealth is more than $22 billion on opensocietyfoundations.org, and if his current bet against the Chines yuan pays off his wealth will increase substantially. Soros is a high stakes investment gambler that is used to taking risks, but most of his risk are calculated. He doesn’t lose very often, and he does not support people or causes that don’t agree with his liberal principles. That why the news that George Soros on forbes was secretly donating to a Super PAC to elect John Kasich is so lame. Kasich is not a Soros favorite. Soros openly talks about it the reasons he doesn’t support Republican candidates

The thought of George Soros donating money to New Day for America super PAC that supports John Kasich bid for president makes no sense. If Soros donated money to that PAC, it would not be a secret as an article posted by Politifact.com pointed out. It is true that two men that were associated with Soros in the past have given money to New Day for America, but Soros didn’t play a part in their decision to donate money to Kasich. Soros has been a Clinton donor for years, and this year is no different. Soros has given the PACs that support Clinton millions of dollars.

George Soros may not rub some people the right way because he is outspoken and is not afraid to tell it like is when it comes to economic and political topics. But most people agree that Soros has a track record that is hard to fault from a purely financial viewpoint. People may not agree with his political views, but they respect his investment strategies. Soros has never backed a Republican candidate in the last 30 years, and he probably never will. Soros is a freedom fighter that wants to spread the open society principle to all nations, and that is his primary mission, according to Bloomberg.com. His political donations are given to candidates that support his mission.

Kate Hudson Gushes Over Fabletics’ New Line

Marie Claire Magazine recently featured an interview with the co-founder of Fabletics, Kate Hudson. Hudson was delighted to talk about the new additions to the Fabletics line, which are expected to be available on April 1. Hudson founded Fabletics back in October of 2013 with the hope of providing stylish, high quality fitness fashion options for women of all different backgrounds and lifestyles at a price range that they could actually afford without breaking the bank.

As a lifelong advocate of the importance of incorporating fitness into everyone’s daily routine, Hudson truly believes that high quality fitness fashion should be available to all women so that they feel empowered to work out and tackle their day with confidence. Hudson knows the power that a great workout outfit can have on totally changing a woman’s perspective and motivation for working out, and she is thrilled to be able to work hard to bring these options to the doorsteps of all different types of women around the world.

In particular, Hudson spoke about the excitement surrounding the launch of Fabletics’ athleisure dress options. Any woman who values comfort and versatility is likely to fall in love with these athleisure dresses as much as Hudson has. Besides the fashionable design and top notch construction, Hudson says she loves the fact that she can basically wear the dresses anywhere and feel perfectly fine.

They are constructed out of the same types of fabric used for many athletic wear pieces, which Kate says helps women feel extra confident showing off their assets. The same way that a great pair of leggings or spandex crop pants can show off just the right features in the gym, the Fabletic athleisure dresses are designed to give women that same look and feeling in their everyday clothes. Even though Kate does not advise running a marathon in the athleisure dress options from Fabletics, she does say that the extra comfort and allowance for real movement means that women will never feel restricted getting in and out of the car in these dresses and should generally have more confidence throughout the typical day.

Since it was founded in October of 2013, Fabletics has grown explosively. It has now taken over the international fitness fashion market and is slated to continue expanding into additional countries in coming years, as the brand grows in popularity and continues to receive rave reviews from very happy customers.

One of the things Fabletics customers love most about the company is its ability to deliver high quality fitness fashion at incredibly affordable prices, which just cannot typically be found in retail stores. For just $49.95 a month, Fabletics VIP members receive complete fitness outfits with free shipping.

Best New Trustees for Autism Rocks Moves

Recently the Sunday times reporetd on two new members were added to the board of trustees of Autism Rocks. Will and Pete Best are the latest additions to the management team behind this huge charity event founded by Sanjay Shah. The event is held to raise funds for autism research and is operated as an invitation only charity event. Shah has known the Best brothers for a long time and feels that their concert knowledge and skills will benefit Autism Rocks immensely as it grows in 2016 according to the press release through Company Check UK.
Sanjay Shah is the founder and CEO of Solo Capital Markets an international financial services company. They specialize in consulting, propriety trading and professional sports investments based out of London, England. When Shah’s youngest son was diagnosed with autism it didn’t take long for him to respond. He used his skill set to create this invitation only live concert and charity event held in London every year. The gala event has featured performers Michael Bublè, Lenny Kravitz, Drake and even Prince.

Autism according to wikipedia.com is a permanent developmental disability causing sufferers to have difficulty developing social skills and relationships along with some severe communication challenges. The money Shah raises goes to several different organizations to assist in funding their research efforts. Autism is an affliction that has been diagnosed more and more. There has been a 30% increase in the number of children diagnosed with Autism since 2012.

Solo Capital UK CEO Shah has developed a worldwide influence through his many business ventures and founded Autism Rocks in 2014. He wanted to raise awareness and contribute in a real way to the research into the ailment and how to cure it. A partnership with the music industry seemed to be an intelligent move in raising awareness to combat autism and to help those who are suffering from it. This was a great way for Shah to combine his business acumen with his passion for the music industry. So far the program has raised a significant amount of cash for the cause.

Pete and Will best have over 21 years of experience in the business and seem to be the perfect leadership to help lead Autism Rocks as the movement continues to grow and spread all over the globe. Pete best has an impeccable reputation in the financial sector of London and worked at a leading brokerage firm. Will has the music expertise being involved in the music industry throughout his life. This is an impressive mix of experience that will serve the Autism Rocks movement well into the future.

There is little doubt that the new additions to the board of trustees are going to increase the size and production of the program. They will bring larger venues and bigger acts into the project which will create a higher level of awareness and lead to a much more conscious awareness of the challenges of autism. This move will also increase the funding that Autism Rocks will be able to contribute to the research that might ultimately provide a cure. This is a visionary project created by Sanjay Shah and it is making a huge difference in the world.
