Dog Food Brands

There are a variety of dog food brands that owners and pets both love. One of the most common types of dog food is organic dog food with flavoring. Organic food was a huge boom among people, but now pet owners are wanting to have organic food for their animals. This is a major difference over the past few years. It is true that organic food can make dogs live longer. However, there are also a lot of things to keep in mind when buying organic dog food. The dog food has to be stored differently, and many pet owners find this out the hard way. Sometimes, the dog food smells worse than typical dog food. Always keep these factors in mind before making a purchase.

Flavors

Dog food flavor is something that all pets enjoy. The problem is trying to find flavors that pets will love for a long period of time. Often times, a dog will get used to the pet food that they eat on a regular basis. Over the long term, finding quality pet food with good flavors is something that people will enjoy. Beneful has done a great job of investing in dog food brands over the past couple of years. Many industry experts believe that these investments will pay off with higher sales on their already popular dog food brands.

James O’Keefe FAILS Again: Exposed by Soros’s Open Society Foundation

James O’Keefe, a minor celebrity footnote who was previously convicted of trespassing on federal property under false pretenses, has once again been up to his deceptive practices. This time, instead of trying, and failing, to commit criminal acts in order to slander a United State Senator, he believed he would make an easy mark of George Soros’s Open Society Foundations by way of a prank call. O’Keefe was so caught up in the brilliance of his scheme to infiltrate Soros’s group that after leaving a voicemail at the group’s headquarters George Soros engaged his co-conspirators by filling them in on how they would gain entry in Soros’s inner circle and wreak havoc.

The recipient of the voicemail at Open Society Foundations, Dana Geraghty, explains that she got much more than O’Keefe had intended: after he left the voicemail, misrepresenting himself as a Hungarian-American named Victor Kesh who wanted to help the organization, he failed to disconnect the line before announcing the full scope of his plans to his companions-in-fraud, capturing the entire plan in the candid voicemail to his intended victims. In the raw story.com piece linked above, the Open Society Foundations president Chris Stone states: “The Watergate burglars look good compared to these guys…these guys can’t even figure out how to use an Internet browser, let alone conduct an undercover operation.” Stone clarifies that he doesn’t intend to downplay the malicious nature of O’Keefe’s deception.

George Soros, best known as an investor and philanthropist who champions humanitarian causes, was recently in the spotlight as a result of his proposal for how the EU could more effectively handle the influx of Syrian refugees in a way that would improve the lives of both the refugees and the residents having to accept them. Soros’s plan, which can be read in full here: http://www.georgesoros.com/philanthropy/, comes from a humanitarian perspective. The 85 year-old philanthropist is no stranger to hatred from conservatives such as O’Keefe who espouse an over simplified “up from the bootstraps” philosophy of existence which centers on total freedom for the rich to operate without restraint or any kinds of checks and balances, while letting the disadvantaged and the poor fall into greater destitution and ultimately die as soon as possible. This philosophy runs counter to Soros’s in every way.

The Open Society Foundation was launched in 1979 by Soros, and has worked to improve societies around the world. George Soros says that Open Society was formed because he realized how fortunate he was as a businessman and human being and felt that he had a duty to take a stand on issues he felt were of vital importance. In addition to providing scholarships and creating opportunities, the Open Society Foundation does a great deal.

The Demand For Silver And Gold Coins Is On The Rise According To Philip Diehl President Of U.S. Money Reserve

Investors are worried. The word around the industry is the global economy is heading for another disaster, and the popular investment vehicles are going to disappoint average investors. Hedge fund investors are also having a hard time adjusting to the economic impact that China is having on countries around the world.

The truth is, finding investments that will withstand another Great Recession are hard to find, but the president of U.S. Money Reserve, Philip Diehl, believes he has the answer. U.S Money Reserve is one of the largest distributors of government issued silver, gold and platinum coins.

Diehl told Enterprise Radio that there is no better time to invest in gold and silver coins than now for several reasons. CBS19.tv published Diehl’s interview. One thing was obvious during the interview. Diehl is the real deal when it comes to talking about precious metal and coins. Philip Diehl is a former director of the U.S Mint and a former chief of staff of the U.S. Treasury. He also was staff director for the Senate Finance Committee.

In the interview, Mr. Diehl said the official silver coin of the United States is the American Silver Eagle. The value of that 1-ounce coin has increased by more than 370 percent since 2007. Diehl said a recent U.S. Mint report shows that Silver Eagle sales topped 47 million in 2015, and that’s a record.

The demand for silver coins in 2016 is outpacing the sales for the same period in 2015. In the first four months of 2016, more than 19 million Silver Eagle coins have been sold, according to Diehl. Sales of Silver Eagle coins in 2016 could hit 60 million.

Silver prices are outpacing stock and gold prices in 2016 as well. The price of silver has increased 27 percent in the first quarter of 2016, and the price of gold has increased 20 percent. Stock prices have only increased by a little more than 6 percent. And Mr. Diehl thinks gold and silver price increases won’t stop. Read more:  US Money Reserve | CrunchBase and US Money Reserve TV Commercials – iSpot.tv

Some investment experts are predicting that gold could double in price over the next five years. And silver prices could triple thanks to the solar energy boom. Silver is used in photovoltaic cells in solar panels.

U.S. Money Reserve introduced a precious metal IRA program recently, and Philip Diehl thinks it is a perfect investment vehicle for people that don’t trust the stock market. There is little doubt that gold and silver prices are going to soar as soon as the word gets out that the United States is entering another recession. That news may come by the end of 2016, and 2017 is going to be a very tough year, according to Diehl.

Fluffy, Soft Hair with Wen by Chaz

Why is it that some women go through life with hair that is fluffy, soft and easy to style, yet others wind up with hair that is usually oily with a flat look that’s hard to do anything with? Somehow, fate has ordained that some women just have easier hair to deal with, and if you are someone with hair on the flat and oily side, the good news is that now there is real hope out there.
After years of frustration, seeing all the women on shampoo commercials with lustrous, beautiful hair, I really wanted to try something new. I heard about the Wen hair by Chaz (http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html) product line and decided to try these shampoo and conditioning products. These products are “all in one” so in that sense they add extra convenience to the haircare experience. WEN hair also require more product per washing, to give hair the full on treatment.

Chaz Dean’s haircare products come in an array of lovely scents, including Lavender, Tea Tree and Sweet Almond Mint, which is the style I chose. It smells wonderful, and it has no harsh chemicals and are available online vie eBay.

I used the treatment for a week, and within days my hair felt lighter, fresher and fluffier. Frankly, I’m ready to be a model for a haircare commercial, which is saying something. I’m very happy with the results, and I’m going to be using more of Wen hair by Chaz in the coming days.

An Important Minimum Wage Increase Helps Venezuelan Families

A Linked In article revealed the perseverance of the Venezuelan working class has incited positive change in the country’s government. Amidst several economic periods of increasing inflation, on May 1st, 2016, the people of Venezuela convinced their government to increase the national minimum wage.
This increase amounts to a 30 percent boost in minimum pay by employers in an economic climate that has been racked with recent stifling inflation rates. This increase gives working-class families in Venezuela the power to buy more, which will theoretically boost the country’s businesses and international trade position.

This new minimum wage increase will bring the average Venezuelan worker’s wage to about 9,649 bolivars per month. It completes a 52 percent increase over last year’s wages, but gives families the ability to combat hyperinflation that has caused an 80 percent loss in the value of the country’s currency.

Expert Jose Manuel thinks that no matter the outcome of the current economic conditions in Venezuela, minimum wage increases are an indicator that the country’s ruling powers are dedicated to the quality of life of every citizen. As international support contributes to the future of Venezuela’s economy, social concessions like minimum wage increases help every Venezuelan in the short term. A currency war is inevitable, but high minimum wages allow all Venezuelans to actively contribute to their country’s economic reconstruction.

Review of Brian Bonar’s Bellamy’s Bistro

In Escondido, many businesses start with the first name such as Mart’s Small Appliance, Cathy’s Canine and Lupita’s Mexican. In this city, the grandfatherly police views young people having jewelry with suspicion. It is imperative to note that Escondido attracts agricultural elites from San Diego.

A combination of different factors makes Escondido a safe haven for the best cooks in the county. However, Patrick Ponsaty is a highly revered chef. He is renowned as Master Chef of France, a rare designation in San Diego. The other prestigious award is the Marine Room’s Bernard Guillas.

Patrick made a name for himself while working at the Rancho Bernardo Inn by helping Gavin Kaysen become a successful chef. Patrick worked at the Loews before joining Brian Bonar’s Bellamy’s Bistro. The restaurant has brought progressive dining to the region. While starting its operations, Bellamy’s enlisted the services of Trevor Da Costa as the front man and Mike Reidy as the executive chef.

According to Bloomberg, Brian Bonar plans to expand the restaurant through utilizing the 144-acre property to build a four-star event space complete with a signature restaurant. For all this to happen, a marquee chef will be required. Bellamy’s is providing the residents of San Diego with some of the best foods in the region as prepared by a top-notch staff.

Bellamy’s has an exquisite signage that includes smooth-jazz paintings, plush seats and Coppertone-brown walls. The Master Chef of France serves delicious meals such as the corn soup, which is prepared using cream and espelette peppers. The soup is served with lime juice, cilantro, olive oil and ginger.

At the restaurant, consumers are served parsley-cream risotto with crunchy poached salmon and summer truffle. The mille-feuille prepared by Ponsaty and Reidy is carefully topped with apple slices, smoked eel as well as liver confit and a little bit of pork fat.

The mushroom ravioli is well prepared and topped with wine sauce. This information was originally reported on San Diego Magazine as seen in this link http://www.sandiegomagazine.com/San-Diego-Magazine/August-2013/Grand-Cuisine-at-Bellamys/

Assembly Pushess Referendum on Maduro

As the economic crisis worsens in Venezuela, opposition parties are trying to push for a referendum to end the presidency of Nicolas Maduro early. He was elected to a six-year term as president in 2013. According to a story in Reuters, Venezuelans may have a referendum on a president at the halfway point of the term, and decide in a general election whether to oust him or her from office early.
The election council in Venezuela is said by David Osio that it is in charge of determining when referendums may be held, and not the legislature. The Legislative branch, dominated by the opposition party, is pushing for the referendum and wants to run it. The opposition won the majority in the legislature last year.

The Nation’s supreme court could also strike down the referendum. in the past it has sided with Maduro. The president’s party has called the move for a referendum a “parliamentary coup.” The assembly which David is a part of, is also discussing shortening the term of the president from six years to four, in another attempt to end his term early. There is debate over whether they could make the change retroactive.

In February a poll by Datanalisis said 66 percent of people in Venezuela favor ending Maduro’s presidency early.

The country is having severe inflation, mass shortages of basic items, and the socialist government seems on the verge of imploding. Shrinking oil prices, as well as a long term drought, are two of the major reasons for the crisis.
