Testing for Healthy Dog Food- Don’t Buy on a Whim

Purina warns customers to be careful about the dog food they are feeding their pets. More owners than ever before are choosing healthy food options for their dogs. That is a wise decision as long as that healthy dog food is well tested. In fact, consumers are now spending over $10.5 billion on alternatives that are billed to be healthier than regular dog food. More facts about healthy dog food can be found in the Daily Herald. When you are considering healthy alternative dog foods make sure to consider Beneful, a Purina Store product. First, most of the ingredients in Beneful are from the United States. Of course, that keeps Americans working helping the economy stay strong. Purina assures that all of its products meets United States Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration standards. They then make sure that they raise the bar on those standards to make the best dog food for each stage of a pet’s life. Over 99 percent of all Beneful is made in the United States at plants and factories owned by Purina. In order to make sure that your dog gets the best food possible when you choose to feed Beneful, Purina hires over 400 scientists who work on research to develop the best dog food possible. The company uses dogs from rescue organizations to test their dog food. These dogs live a very pampered life at the Pet Care Center where they are allowed to roam and play just like your dog is allowed to do in your home. Maintaining this center allows scientists to know exactly how different dogs react to the food long before you find it on your store shelf.

Doe Deere’s Lime Crime Fashion World

Doe Deere does not subscribe to the school of thought that fashion must strictly adhere to certain rules. She is a strict believer that it is no sin to break a few fashion rules. She believes that when one breaks a few of the rules to do what they deem fit, it does not mean that they are become fashion recluses. In case you do not know the name Doe Deere, you most probably know Lime Crime, the phenomenal make up brand which she is the Chief Executive Officer.

Doe believes that for one to feel comfortable when applying cosmetics and make up, there must be that room for experimenting and making a few mistakes. In fact, her makeup line specializes in whimsical, colorful and cruelty-free products that are loved by women who feel the need to express themselves in the most outspoken manner through makeup.

With time, Lime Crime has proved that one can be equally stylish by taking the usual path when matters related to makeup application are concerned. She also has advice for women who are tired of staying inside the lines when matters related to their styling. She shared a few of her beauty and fashion rules to break that they can try.

Doe belongs to the school of thought that a woman can wear a bold eye with a bold lip and still look very fabulous. She advises women to mix colors that will make them look refreshing as opposed to subscribing to the usual makeup rules. She is also not against women mixing a few colors if they want to. According to her, makeup is not supposed to remove the experimenting factor and if it does; then it is no longer an enjoyable thing.

When it comes to fashion, she advises women not to go against her own rules about mixing a few patterns. She believes that patterns are fun and the more they are, the merrier.

She built her Lime Crime Brand online and is currently an employer and a manufacturer of makeup products that very many women love.

Since when she was a kid, she has always been creative and a risk taker. She has tried her hand in singing as well as modelling before finally settling for her current occupation. Her makeup journey has not been smooth either.

In fact, she confesses that she had always been poor in makeup until she reached her 20s. Because her brand is online based, she is able to get almost immediate reaction when she launches a product. That does not mean that she does not face challenges. In the internet world of business, she has faced a lot of negative criticism that was geared towards destroying her reputation. However, that has not prevented her from delivering the best to her clients therefore, continuing to attract even more others.

George Soros Compares China’s Economic Problems to the 2008 Crisis

According to George Soros as reported on Bloomberg, China is having a “major adjustment problem.” He also told investors to be cautious because current economic conditions in many ways resemble 2008.
Why should anyone listen to Soros? That’s what the public probably wants to know. The fact that this man began his career and built it up in a lifetime to a net worth of more than $27 billion is one reason why. His successful track record – particularly that of his $1 billion profit made on a deal in 1992 – does not always guarantee he is right. However, the people who seek him for mentorship seem to respect his opinion and heed his predictions.
Soros told anyone who would listen about how China’s economy the first week of 2016 “amounts to a crisis.” He also mentioned that when he looks at the financial markets right now it reminds him of the 2008 recession. One of his major evidences used to support this perspective is the falling value of the Chinese yuan. The plummet in cost of this currency caused the worst stock market crash on Wall Street within three months. Likewise, Asian markets started out the new year quite rough.
One of the hugest occurrences reported is the $2.5 trillion decline in global equities. This all has been largely been blamed on the shifting of China’s economy. This country is changing from an investment and manufacturing nation to one driven by consumption and service industries. It could be just a temporary transition. However, it seems to be affecting the world in a way that caused George Soros to warn people about the possibility of a repeat of the 2008 economic fallout.
It should be pointed out, however, that this is not the first time that George Soros predicted another 2008 crisis. After Greece started struggling financially, Soros said this was more serious than what occurred about eight years ago. Still, rumor has it Greece is recovering well already. So what is it about first the Greek and Chinese economic crunches that makes one of the richest man in the world declare a possible recession?
The Greece situation seems to be for the most part resolved, so it does not apply as much as the China situation right now. However, Strategy + Business suggests that repeated reduction in spending is what partly resolved this country’s crisis. This ties into what it appears Soros is saying to investors — to slow down on making financial moves right now.

The rising Chinese debt-to-income ratios and increased Asian global trade problems seems to be causing quite a scare. After all, the Dow Jones was down by just more than 392 points by closing time on January 7, 2016. Whether or not the fears are founded concerning China’s economy, investors can consider themselves warned.
