Freshpet Pushes for Healthy Dog Food Industry

We have seen the tides change in the world of dog food manufacturing over the better part of the last decade or so. In the early days of the dog food industry, obviously longer ago than just this past decade, the industry was fairly lax in terms of quality. Nowadays, in the age of facebook, everyone knows everything about the food that they are buying. This has obviously opened the door for pet food companies to focus on creating a product that is so healthy that owners have to go ahead on Wal-Mart stores and buy it for their pets.
Richard Thompson is the CEO of Freshpet and one of the leading pioneers in this new healthy dog food craze. To demonstrate how healthy and well made his dog food is the CEO is willing to walk onto the factory floor and take a piece of their Chunky Chicken and Turkey mix right off of the belt, popping it into his mouth with a satisfying smile. The above story actually happened at their factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania during a tour and it only highlights how important quality is in the $24 billion dollar pet food industry.

Pet owners want to know that their pets are getting quality food and this means seriously ramping up the dial on quality ingredients. Companies like Freshput are pushing the envelop and forcing the rest of the industry to adapt. Now we’re industry favorites like Beneful take the idea and run with it. Nowadays companies like Beneful are making dog food that is so good you could sit it on a plate and take a bit out of it yourself and not know it was made for your pooch.

The biggest difference, for Nestle Purina Store and Freshpet as well as other companies, is that there is a real focus on getting rid of preservatives and utilizing fresh, quality ingredients. It’s common knowledge that Beneful was one of the first companies to ever put real meat into their dog food so it doesn’t surprise us to see that the company has taken it to the next level by making some of the best dog food products available ( actually taste good.

Thor Halvorssen Takes It Upon Himself To Talk About Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders is changing the populist message for President by telling people that he wants to help them with their tax dollars, but he has been accused of being a communist for it. A lot of people have taken offense to that because that is not his platform at all, and Thor Halvorssen of the Human Rights Foundation took it upon himself to explain to Fox News what Bernie Sanders actually stands for.

There are a lot of versions of socialism, but what Bernie Sanders is for is not communism. Thor Halvorssen has seen a lot of terrible things as a result of communism, but he knows that that is not what Bernie Sanders is all about. He gave a name for what Bernie Sanders wants, and that term is democratic socialism. There are some countries around the world that operate on this premise, and they are able to make sure that they can use tax money to help the people instead of making government bigger.

Bernie Sanders wants people who pay taxes to see where their tax money went, and he wants to know that every person is getting the services they deserve with that money. It is pretty easy for him to accomplish this, but he has to get past the wrong perception first. Thor Halvorssen can show people terrible socialist governments, but those countries do not have free elections or human rights for their citizens. Mr. Halvorssen is more concerned about countries where communism has gone wild and the money for the government goes to the ruling family.

America will not turn into one of the countries that Thor Halvorssen is concerned about, and he wants everyone in America to make an informed choice instead of just saying that Bernie Sanders is a communist. He wants people to have a real disagreement instead of calling each other names, and he wants people to know that they are not helping the process by mislabeling Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders could help a lot of people, and Thor Halvorssen hopes to see a change in his work with the human Rights Foundation after the election.

Rationing and Shortages are Severely Impacting the Venezuelan Population

Economic difficulties in Venezuela have led to severe rationing and shortages, which are having a serious impact on the people there. Medical supplies, prescription drugs, birth control products, and even electricity have been limited. The reduced availability of medicines according to David Osio has lead to the creation of a call center where patients can check in to find out the location of a pharmacy that might have the medications that they need. But, some people who cannot travel have to go completely without their medications unless they have someone to go get it for them. This lack of prescription drugs has impacted the ability of women to buy birth control pills, which have seemingly disappeared off the market. The option of condoms was finally brought back after some time, but they are sold for such high prices that few can afford them. Many people including Mr. Osio are concerned this will lead to an increase in sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies. The rationing has also impacted the utilities of businesses and homes. Recently, over 100 malls were asked to close down part of the day to save electricity. No one knows when the rationing and shortages will end.


Is Wen by Chaz Right for You?

Everyone has heard of the hair product known as WEN by Chaz. There is virtually no individual that has stayed up late at night who hasn’t seen the QVC commercial running. However, not everyone has actually used the product. Therefore, when a person that writes for recently tried it, it was interesting to see what the results would be. This article is essentially a recap of that particular article, which can be found at, which details the results that this particular individual experienced throughout the time that she was trying the product.

She spent a week giving Wen a try, waking up early each morning so that she could work the product through her hair and shower. She commented that the first thing she noticed was that she had to use roughly four times as much of the product as she did her normal hair care products, according to the directions on the back of the bottle. She also stated that this made her a little nervous, but she had already made the commitment so she was willing to try.

The first couple of days, she realized that if she failed to wash her hair every morning that it would be extremely oily and unmanageable. However, she also commented that as long as she got up and showered in the morning, working the product through her hair each day, it became softer and shinier. While it didn’t hold curls as well, likely because it was so much softer, it was so shiny and pretty on its own that even her friends were commenting on it. All in all, she concluded that WEN might not be the best product for someone that doesn’t wash their hair on a daily basis because the hair tends to get oily if it isn’t cleansed daily. Otherwise, she found that it made her hair more manageable, much fuller and that less hair tended to fall out when she showered.

Thor Halvorssen believes Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Understand Socialism

Thor Halvorssen, head of the Human Rights Foundation, does not believe Bernie Sanders understands socialism. The runner-up in the Democratic primaries claims to be a Democratic socialist. According to this recent Reddit thread, Halvorssen said in an interview on Fox News that socialism denies human rights and used the example of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez.

Socialism is a form of government where the means of production are owned collectively. It may be by the people, by the employees of a group, or some other form of shared equity. It exists in two forms, market socialism and non-market socialism. Non-market socialism tries to correct the imbalances that occur in the for-profit system. Market socialism is usually a mix of socialist polices and free-market policies, such as
While Halvorssen believes that socialism can be stable in areas with long traditions of democratic government, such as Western Europe, he also believes that such systems can easily be perverted by corrupt rulers. During the Fox interview he stated that corrupt rulers who do not have the best interests of the people at heart can become despots.

Although he criticized Sanders for his naïve positions, Halvorssen has donated to his campaign. Unlike his democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, Sanders has not supported the regimes that support torture. At the moment, the Sanders campaign is funded through small donations of individual supporters. Clinton and her Republican competitors have all taken donations from large corporations.

Sanders has criticized the role of lobbyists and large corporations in the United States political system. The Democratic candidate also voiced support for overturning the Citizens United Decision. This Supreme Court decision furthered the existing legal doctrine that corporations are people and have the same rights as citizens.

Fresh Pet Food Is The New Craze

Have you ever thought about sampling some of your dog’s food? Yeah, me either. However Richard Thompson, CEO of Freshpet, a small, homegrown dog food manufacturer located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania was up for the challenge. Both Thompson and Freshpet’s Manufacturing Chief, Michael Hieger have no reservations when it comes to sampling what they consider to be dog food delicacies. They want to prove to pet owners that they are using only the finest and wholesome ingredients when it comes to manufacturing fresh and tasty dog food.
The newest craze in prepared cat and dog foods is to provide something so fresh, it tastes like it came directly off of your kitchen table and into your pets dish. An idea so riveting that consumers have jumped on the bandwagon and helped these companies become increasingly popular. Fresh food alternatives have created an interesting Facebook challenge to traditional dog food manufacturers. They have to pay particularly close attention to their ingredients and revamp recipes just to compete.
While feeding your pet’s fresh “human-like” food might be all of the rage, there are some serious setbacks owners should consider. For one and probably the most crucial, this stuff is expensive. For a pet owner, the price of the fresh food really doesn’t add up to being economical. Therefore, pet owners are still searching for alternatives that provide a fresh food experience for half the cost. That is where Beneful comes in. They have made significant strides to compete in the fresh food market. Very recently, they purchased Merrick Pet Care, a certified plant-based manufacturer of both wet and dry dog food. The acquisition of Merrick Pet Care has proved to be a strategic move for the pet food mogul as they move into the fresh food market.
Beneful has proven to be a dominant figure in the pet food industry. The company itself is made up knowledgeable nutritionists and quality control fanatics to ensure the product that ends up in your dog’s dish meets your standards. Employees at Beneful may not eat the food but they are committed to providing nutritional food that will empower your pet’s physical and emotional health.

Fashion and beauty rules Doe Deere loves to break

Doe Deere is the creator of the wildly popular makeup line, Lime Crime. The line promotes itself as ‘makeup for unicorns,’ and its founder lives that mantra.

Living by unicorn standards can butt up against conventional fashion rules. Below are the rules Doe loves to break daily.

Pairing bold eyes and lips has been a no-no for longer than anyone can remember. The clash of the two creates an image that’s less than desirable.
The desire to mix and match colors outweighs that opinion. Doe says she loves to wear colors that make her happy. If they happen to be all bold colors, then so be it.
Combining too many colors at once creates a look that pits colors against one another. Since colors are obviously vying for attention, this has become a fashion faux pas.
Doe Deere overcomes this complication by sticking to color coordination as the focal point. If the colors have complimentary hues, and are coordinated, you can pull it off.
Mixing patterns causes the same outrage as mixing colors. It’s an advanced level of breaking the fashion rules. Much like colors, mixing patterns eases its way into the ok category when patterns are in the same color family. Doe believes there’s no wrong way to pair patterns. Just be sure to keep them complimentary.
Open toed shoes shouldn’t be worn with socks has been dubbed as ‘grandma chic.’ Doe owns over 100 pairs and says her garments feel incomplete without a statement sock.
Covering them with closed toed shoes defeats the purpose of the pattern. They’re meant to be displayed; even if it is through the toe of a shoe.
Only wear neutrals if you hair is a bold color. Doe Deere was one of the first to rock rainbow hair. Having unicorn hair wasn’t going to mean she was confined to neutral makeup. She makes it work by paying attention to the intensity of the hair color when choosing makeup and clothes.
Dress your age to prevent looking inappropriate. Your age shouldn’t dictate what you can or can’t wear. 22 year olds wear ‘grandma chic’ looks all the time. So why can’t 45 year olds rock tutus?
Only wear event appropriate clothes. Doe believes clothes are made to be enjoyed, so if you feel like wearing a cocktail dress on a Wednesday, then go for it!
