Are you feeding your furry companion the best?

Over the years I have tried several dog foods with my dog. I tried the high-end brands and low budget alternatives. All of these had great benefits but my dog just wasn’t happy with it. One day I stumbled upon Beneful at a local pet store and decided to give it a shot. It was love at first taste for my dog charlie.

Beneful is a dog food brand on Purinastore with the dog in mind and not the profits. Many other brands spend millions of dollars on advertising and could care less about what is in the dog food. Beneful is not that company.

Beneful has been around since 2001 and serving our pooches as a top contender. Beneful has a strong team of researcher and nutritionists ensuring our dogs are receiving the best. Beneful prides itself on giving our pets only the best ingredients for their development. Brands like this are one that I will stand by.

Beneful is not just a competitor in dog food, it’s what your dog deserves. Beneful has strict standards on what goes into each and every one of their bags of dog food. From the brand new pup to the old guy you’ve had since you were a kid, Beneful has a flavor just for them. The beneful brand offers different flavors from chicken and veggies up to exotic salmon. And what dog doesn’t want salmon in his bowl?

I know my dog Charlie sure does. I have been feeding him Beneful for the past 3 years and he loves every bowl. I wouldn’t serve my dog something that he doesn’t like. He is healthy and I credit it all to Beneful daily.

Beneful is a brand that stands behind what they serve. A great dog food that both you and your dog can appreciate.

 

George Soros Predictions Future of Gold Stable

Families are searching for the right way to save for their futures. Savings accounts at banks were once the favored way but now, the interest rate is so low that you will almost pay the banks to hold your money. Banks not only hold your money but they also have the ability to use your money as an investment. People with IRA’s and Money Market Accounts may make some money but they will lose money as well. Interest rates and the cost per share fluctuate with the stock market. Gold and silver are about the only savings that guarantee close to the same in price. Gold and silver prices stay positive. George Soros predicts stability of gold for future.

The United States Money Reserve handles Platinum, Gold and Silver from the U.S. Mint. Over the years, the Mint guaranteed the best in coins so over 300,000 customers rely on the Money Reserve for their coins. Purchasing government coins promise a better product than many of the other coin dealers around.

The article Podcast has Eric Dye interviewing Phillip Diehl. He is one of the largest dealers and distributors in of Gold and Silver bullion and coins. Diehl was the 35th Director of the U.S. Mint under Bill Clinton. He was one of the people that instrumentally had part of the production of the 50 states quarters production and distribution. After his time as the Director of the Mint, Phillip Diehl took the position as the U.S. Money Reserve President.
Precious metals are rare enough to keep a good price. The bars that some mints put out for sale are not the purest and are not guaranteed to have a good quality. Most of the coins from the U.S. Mint and Reserve are guaranteed to provide quality, purity, and weight. There is no question this will be the better way to save for the future because people will gain money or stay close to the same. Gold and silver prices will remain a good investment for anyone’s future.

With today’s economy and refugee status the way it is, the United States has some of the wealth that guarantee stability. In 2008, the financial crisis was close to depression. The depression was hard and people depended on the government to provide stability as soon as possible. With precious metal prices up, the economy could possibly turn to be a good economy and the U.S. Can continue to sell over 65% the gold to India and China. The market depends on the prices of gold as well as our ability to spend economically.

Several visual search startups have emerged across the globe with the aim of assisting entities to enable their consumers discover items online, based on images of objects that are seen in the real world.

Mad Street Den, a Chennai-based platform raised $15 million in 2015, is another company providing visual search, although it focuses on visual-recommendation engine. E-commerce and online shopping are booming in India and for this reason, Visenze, a Singapore based firm is planning to venture into the India to cater for the demand in the market.

Get Your Wiki Takes the Mystery Out of Wikipedia Legends

Wikipedia is fifteen years old now, nevertheless, some people who use the online encyclopedia know very little about it, except that Wikipedia is an ad-free research tool. Since Wikipedia does not display advertisements, it’s assumed that the website and its editors are unbiased, like Consumer Reports magazine. Actually, Wikipedia does not earn money by selling advertising because the volunteer editors who create the website’s content would not work for free if they thought that they were making founder Jimmy Whales rich. 

While Wikipedia does not earn revenues from showing ads, nevertheless, other companies do make money by showing Wikipedia content. Google and Bing show snippets of Wikipedia entries, often placing the snippets where people cannot miss them. This is why every business, nonprofit organization and prominent individual should have his or her own Wikipedia page. Get Your Wiki (http://www.getyourwiki.com/) creates Wikipedia pages for companies, nonprofit organizations and public figures who prefer an unbiased, professionally created Wikipedia entry that is guaranteed to comply with the encyclopedia’s standards. 

Get Your Wiki writers also translate Wikipedia pages into other languages and do Wikipedia business page creation in other languages as well. This is an important, but often overlooked service. Wikipedia is available in 300 languages, however, many of the world’s poorer nations have very few volunteer editors; their pages are sparse. Organizations that want to reach people in foreign countries often need to create or edit their existing Wikipedia pages to catch people’s attention. It’s better to have experts do this so that the translation is accurate.

There is a myth that all of Wikipedia’s volunteer editors create pages for altruistic reasons. People imagine academic individuals checking facts and deciding where knowledge is lacking. While many of Wikipedia’s editors want to share their knowledge about a topic that they are passionate about, some editors let biases, opinions and personal vendettas cloud their writing. 

Any company or public person who is hoping someone will make a Wikipedia page about them is taking their chances that a fair-minded editor will write about them. Instead of gambling on one day getting a Wikipedia entry created in good faith, businesses and nonprofits should contact Get Your Wiki and have them create an accurate Wikipedia entry, backed up by appropriate references, that will inform readers and boost the organization’s search engine presence.
