Changing the Pet Food Industry One Brand at a Time

Innovation in pet food has seen a dramatic shift in the last few years. Manufacturers are working towards providing consumers with more traditional blends of pet food; apparently the point is to return to the basics. A Bloomberg article analyzed the evolution that is taking place in the pet food industry. Freshpet Inc is one manufacturer that is leading the pack by providing industrial refrigerated food. It is still the only company that does.
Matching the Competition
With companies like Freshpet Inc and Blue Buffalo CO providing innovations, some olds ones are also upping their game to match the competition. What this means is that pet owners don’t have limitations when looking for health chow for their pets. One example is a company like Colgate –Palmolive providing weight loss food for dogs. One of the biggest pet food manufacturers, Mars Petcare, has a Nutro Farm’s Harvest range which provides farm foods to pets. Another one is Nestle Purina that allows pet owners to make their personalized nutrition blends. Purina also provides special food for elderly dogs. The Bright Minds brand of dog food does not require much energy to metabolize, which is ideal for aging dogs. The company is also into the dry foods market, which happened when it bought Merrick Petcare.
A Taste of Beneful
Beneful is another brand from Purina, and it offers dry and wet dog food and treats. The dry dog food comes in eight varieties, with ingredients like beef, chicken, egg, and salmon. For wet food, there are so many ingredients by Beneful that all provide sufficient nutrients for dogs such as beef, carrots, barley, wild rice, tomatoes, salmon, turkey and so much more. There are twenty varieties of wet dog food. Pet owners also get a choice of eleven dog treats. With its selection of different types of dog food, Beneful is offering dog owners options depending on what suits their pets best. It is filling various niches with one brand and continues to raise Purina’s status as a global dog food manufacturer. Making it Work According to the article, http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20151122/business/151129983/, the strategies that pet food manufacturers are adapting seem to be bringing in profits. Since 2009, there has been a 45% increase in sales of high-end dog food and companies like Blue Buffalo going public with sales predictions of over 1 billion dollars in 2015.

Woke Twitter Calls Out Racism And Brenda Wardle Weighs In

In this contemporary era, Twitter has become a sphere through which many people express their views regarding any subject under the sun, including racism. One group known for exposing and challenging the reality of racism in the Twitter realm is called Woke Twitter. The organization is comprised of any individual who uses the #woke hashtag to identify racism and contribute to commentary regarding why it is despicable and needs to be erased from society. Woke Twitter representatives tend to reject the “Rainbow Nation” narrative which promotes the idea that America is racially inclusive. Rather, they advance the idea that racism remains a serious problem in the country and must be challenged. Recently, Woke Twitter called Penny Sparrow into judgment for a tweet they deem racist. In the tweet, Sparrow equated blacks of South Africa to animals such as apes and monkeys.

Brenda Wardle Analyzes Penny Sparrow’s Statement

Woke Twitter’s unveiling of Penny Sparrow’s racist tweet has sparked commentary and controversy all over the world. One individual who has responded to the call to discuss the reality of online racism is legal analyst Brenda Wardle. In discussing Sparrow’s remark, Brenda Wardle noted that the woman’s statement impaired the dignity of black people in an unlawful, intentional manner.

Moving Forward

As 2016 continues unfolding, more and more people are paying attention to race-based issues, including Woke Twitter. In addition to addressing race-based discrimination, the organization (many of whose members are millennials) are interested in discussing the reality of sex and gender-based oppression. Individuals who want to participate in the dialogue regarding racist, sexist, and homophobic narratives can take part by developing a Twitter account and tweeting information which includes the #woke hashtag.

Different Reasons People Switch Carriers

There are tons of factors that cause a customer to switch. It could be anything from problems with their current carrier to something that the new carrier is offering. It could be anything from the new phone that they are interested in getting to even a problem with their old contract. Fortunately, every company offers phones with no contract. One of the carriers that offer phones with no contract is Sprint. Sprint is definitely one of the more inexpensive carriers for people that are interested in a mobile phone service. It is also working over other known carriers.

One of the carriers that works under Sprint is FreedomPop. The company FreedomPop has started when certain people have noticed how costly some of the services could be. They saw a need that people had and worked on ways to fulfill that need. The founders of FreedomPop have thought about the needs of people who couldn’t afford any of the services that are offered by the carriers, especially because of the economic crisis. They have put together a type of service that gives people a little bit of service for free every month. They also allow people the opportunity to pay for more service.

This business proposal has proven to be very successful for FreedomPop. Due to its success, FreedomPop was able to expand into other markets. They have also built a collection of products that are compatible with the service plan offered by FreedomPop. These products are for the most part old phones. None of the phones or tablets are totally new. However, FreedomPop has teamed with Intel in the development of a new smartphone that is going to feature their new processor called “Sofia”. This new Intel Phone is expected to be released sometime this year. This will be Intel’s way of breaking into the mobile market.

In a way, it has become easier to switch carriers because a lot of times, the phones are locked to the provider. If anyone is looking for a good mobile phone service, they just have to find the type of phone they want from the service provider of their choice. They also get to look at the type of services provided and the type of features that come with the service. They could also find out how much it would cost to add a line to the service. For one thing, some service providers provide a deal where they charge only $25 extra for each line added to the account.

Music is Helping to Understand Autism

Sanjay Shah is a self-made millionaire and charitable man. His son was diagnosed with Autism and this drove him to find ways to help understand it. Simply sending money to charities did not feel like enough or even buying cars for a medical facility specializing in Autism. He went on to start his own charity and helped to choose how the money would be used to research and better understand Autism.

He really started to earn his money when he established himself as a hedge-fund manager, but he would now consider himself retired. He had a lot more free time on his hands after retiring, and a chance visit by the rapping icon Snoop Dogg prompted Sanjay Shah to come across the idea of setting up a music charity concert to raise funds and awareness for Autism. One of the first concerts he was able to set up was known as Blended. A mixture of having a couple of well-known artists, a good cause and a level of exclusivity for the event established it to be successful entry into his work in charity. Continuing with his idea and success he was able to open his own charitable organization now known as Autism Rocks.

Sanjay Shah has successfully used the influence and contacts he has gained throughout his life to drive other influential people within their industries to really make a difference. Autism Rocks has already drawn many iconic names to play for his private concerts and has raised millions of dollars to aid in researching Autism.

One of the methods being used to gather donations for his charity is a www.gofundme.com campaign. This is a great way to earn funding for any circumstance in life that you can imagine. This campaign gives Sanjay Shah an excellent way to earn money for Autism Rocks from the general public from anywhere in the world. A donation to this GoFundMe campaign will go on to help the Autism Research Center in Cambridge University develop research projects to identify who may develop Autism and specific ways to help people who have it.
