Getting Beneful Dog Food That is Delightful for Pets

Dog food is something that many people do not think about. It is not always a priority because many people assume that dogs will eat anything. In all honesty, there a truth in this, but I have become more aware of what dogs are eating. I have been able to see – thanks to the Beneful brand – that there are ingredients that dogs need.
Beneful has certainly managed to improve and become a dog food company that is going above and beyond what is considered normal. The company has managed to produce close to 40 different varieties, and the brand still seems to have room for more growth.

I have become an Amazon customer of the Beneful Playful Life and the Beneful Radiance. I think that these foods have a lot of the same ingredients, but there are small differences. Overall, these two Beneful meals have protein rich ingredients. There are also some carbohydrates that boost energy for dogs that consume these two types of foods.

These are delightful meals that my dogs have been impressed with over the years. I could not imagine giving my dogs anything else now that they have done so well with the Beneful meals like this.

The Beneful Beef Stew has a medley of peas, carrots and beef. This is a wet dog food [] that I give my dogs as a special treat on the weekends. I tend to buy the bags of the Beneful Originals with Chicken during the week. I save the special prepared individual meals for the weekend.

I am impressed with what Beneful has been able to do because there are a lot of other brands out there that have expensive meats like lamb or duck. I think that Beneful has been able to make things affordable while still providing quality. That is why this company has continued to be a leader in the dog food industry.

Beneful is the company has that become the most successful of the PurinaStore companies. It has become the company that has put a spotlight on the need for healthy dog food, and that is commendable.

David Osio Weighs In On Venezuela’s Debt Problems

The economic and humanitarian problems facing Venezuela have caused major issues for the country, and prompted many nations around the world to open talks with the socialist South American country about how to solve the problems. Davos Investments executive David Osio has recently been giving his opinion about why the crisis in the country has happened, and what can be done to provide some short term relief from the problems facing Venezuela; Osio has become one of the leading experts on how the falling oil prices seen across the world have destroyed the economy of Venezuela in a number of different ways.

David Osio is the CEO of the Davos Investments group, which has been one of the most successful investment company’s in Venezuela over the last decade or so after Osio himself led the company to a successful period of investing. By 2012, the Osio led Davos Investments had around $2.8 billion in assets under its management, with investors often attracted to the promises of financial transparency Davos provides for investors in an area of the world where the economy has suffered more than in many other parts of the world. Success has followed for David Osio and Davos Investments after the company was awarded the Best Offshore Corporate Services Provider in awards offered by Swiss investment experts in 2012.

In terms of the latest problems facing Venezuela, David Osio has spent a large amount of time providing his expert opinion on why Venezuela has found major problems in recent years. Osio has conducted a major investigation of the problems in Venezuela, which he believes have been caused by an over reliance on the oil industry that provided strong returns for Venezuela when the markets were bullish. Venezuela uses oil as around 95 percent of its exports, but the crisis in oil prices that has lingered for the last few years has had a devastating effect on the economy of the country. Despite the problems David Osio has identified in the Venezuelan economy he does believe recovery is possible and can begin by tackling the short term debt problems the Venezuelan government faces; Osio believes recovery can begin with the negotiations already begun about avoiding defaulting on the short and medium term debt Venezuela has with China.

FreedomPop Establishes WiFi Add On Service

If you have been paying any inkling of attention to the world of cell phones and their carriers then you likely know what’s been going on with the company FreedomPop. FreedomPop has risen to prominence over the last several years thanks to their interesting approach to business, taking an essentially free service and giving it away. Now FreedomPop is taking a next level approach to getting their product out to the masses by offering an unlimited WiFi option for just an additional $5. IF that offer sounds interesting, keep on reading.

For the better part of the past year we have seen FreedomPop’s CEO Stephen Stokols focus on installing an infrastructure of WiFi hotspots all over the continental United States. At the time of this writing there are more than 10 million FreedomPop specific hotspots available for customers to latch on to, spanning just about every large metro area in the country. These WiFi spots are for customers only and are not available to the general public. With the new $5 monthly plan these WiFi spots will open up to paying customers, giving them access to WiFi just about anywhere in the country.

The WiFi service expansion plan is perfectly in line with FreedomPop’s goal of offering a service built out of ‘add ons’. CEO Stokols pointed out that his goal was to create a sort of digital buffet for customers to pick and choose from, rather than forcing them to pay for everything all at once like most other cell phone carriers. This has given FreedomPop a leg up in an industry that has been saturated with high priced options that don’t focus on the customer, instead focusing on getting the most money to the company.

This newest expansion will be available immediately to paying customers and the WiFi spots are going to be available in a slew of places, including popular retail establishments like McDonalds and Best Buy. CEO Stokols is focused also on expanding the amount of available hotspots to the 25 million mark within the next year or so, expanding the available spots for connection in a dramatic fashion.

While this move will give FreedomPop more leverage at home, it is far from the only move currently being made. FreedomPop has gone global with movements into Asia and the United Kingdom in the past year, creating a hallmark for success for the company to continue pushing in.
