Premium Dog Food Experiences A Resurgence

A hungry dog will eat anything. A smart owner who loves the dog will positively not feed the pet “anything”. Instead, the owner chooses to take extra care in order to feed the canine high-quality food. Premium brands serve this purpose, which is why these brands are experiencing surging sales figures. A recent article published by the Daily Herald provides an intriguing look into the world of premium selections. Those who want to buy something special for their pets should look into premium brands.

In the twitter article, consumers are taken to a world they have never visited before. They get to see the inside of the plant in which premium dog food is manufactured. What might shock people is the deliberate process that goes into making the various batches. Both main and supporting ingredients must pass a vigorous selection process in order to added to a batch.

Beneful is a premium brand sold by the Purina company. Beneful boasts some very solid ingredients. The company’s website highlights a grand variety of proteins along with different textures. Chopped beef and chunks of turkey are what dogs can expect for dinner. The proteins are accompanied by numerous trimming and accents including vegetables, rice, and pasta. Beneful definitely boasts some original servings.

The way premium food is cooked is equally careful. No manufacturer wants to serve up anything that falls to meet gourmet standards. After being cooked, taste testing is done to ensure quality. A lot of work goes into making premium food. This is one reason why sales have spiked to over $10 billion per year. And remember, the total revenue of all annual pet food sales is $23+ billion. Premium food brands are now a huge chunk of that figure.

The expansion of brands in retail stores is another reason. How the foods are presented to shoppers is yet another.

Purina Beneful is one brand that makes it easier for shoppers to purchase what they need. Not all customers want small packages. Some want large servings. Of course, there are those who want less voluminous packages. Beneful offers selections in multipacks of 3oz all the way up to re-sealable 10oz containers. Consumers have a lot of options with Beneful.

As long as consumers are given great and varied selections, look for premium foods to continue to grow in popularity.

Andy Wirth Leads Battle To Fight The Olympic Valley Incorporation

According to the Reno-Gazette Journal, a big battle between Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC and the residents of the Olympic Valley area reached a head recently, as the residents who have been pushing for the incorporation of the Olympic Valley, have now withdrawn their petition. Squaw Valley Ski Holdings owns resorts in that area and the Placer County Board of Supervisors, a governing body from the Sacramento area, oversees the land’s activities and some locals wished to have it become local. The effort to incorporate the Olympic Valley got struck down by the Local Agency Formation Commission who said it wasn’t sustainable for the locals to hold.

Wirth is also breathing a sigh of relief to what he saw as a fiscally irresponsible move by those leading the incorporation effort, and has stated it would’ve lead to higher taxes and higher costs of living and local services. But thanks to both the incorporation battle ending as well as good ski weather coming in, the company resorts have been able to open. This after the last few years of the ongoing battle.

Andy Wirth, as seen on his page has been the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC now since 2010. He’s been a longtime lover of skiing and testing the slopes and had a near fatal accident while sky diving at one time. It was his recuperation that eventually inspired him to start a foundation helping Navy SEAL individuals who were also going through difficult recuperation, called Wounded Warrior Project. The Foundation has so far raised over $14,000 in support according to Crowdrise, and many have expressed their gratitude to Wirth for starting the foundation.

Through the work Wirth has done, the Olympic Valley’s ski resorts have become one of the top rated skiing places in the world. He has also done work with local environmental and social causes to help make the Lake Tahoe area a better place to live. The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees has even awarded him the Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award according to his Wikipedia page.

George Soros On Donald Trump

A recent article in Forbes Magazine describes how George Soros has been criticizing Donald Trump. Soros, a fantastically wealthy investor, is a well-known for championing liberal causes in the United States and for supporting Democratic candidates for office, so his disdain for Trump is no surprise.

Soros gave his opinion recently that Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric, which includes his suggestion that U.S. borders be closed to immigrants from Muslim countries, is actually helping terror group ISIS. George Soros‘ logic is that by making Muslims around the world, including in the United States, feel alienated, they will be more likely to turn to radical Islamic groups such as ISIS and a life of terrorism.

Forbes billionaire George Soros also mentioned that, as a former immigrant himself (he fled Communist Hungary for London in 1947), he understands how it feels to be on the wrong end of xenophobia. Additionally, Soros expressed admiration for German Chancellor Angela Merkel for opening her country to Syrian immigrants, but he also noted that she may have compromised her political capital by doing so.

About George Soros

As described in this official biography, George Soros is a hedge fund billionaire who was born in Hungary in 1930, and survived the brutal Nazi occupation of his country during his youth. When Hungary became a satellite state of the Soviet Union after the Second World War, he was able to immigrate to England and earn a degree from the London School of Economics. Ultimately, he began a business career in the United States and became enormously successful as a hedge fund manager and investor.

Soros is a philanthropist and also a published author. He has written over a dozen books, and his opinion pieces on politics and economics appear regularly in major international magazines and newspapers. He is known for his concern for displaced peoples and for the economically and politically disadvantaged.

#2: The Exacting Standards Of Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson was one of the most perfectionistic people in the history of music. He wanted all the dance moves, all the songs and the concerts to be perfect.

Every song, every dance move and every concert is set up to be perfect.

#3: The Sacred Trust

The sacred trust that Sergio believes he carries is the memory of Michael Jackson. He wanted to be respectful of Michael during his life, and Sergio takes the job that much more seriously because Michael is no longer with us. Sergio wants to appear to look just like Michael, and he even wants to speak like Michael. People who come to see Sergio perform want to see someone who is just like Michael, and Sergio hopes that he gives people that experience at his concerts.
