Venezuela Food Crisis – A Recipe for Disaster

Citizens of San Felix, Venezuela ransack a food truck that was transporting eggs, some bottles of sauces and flour packages. This incident was caused by the emotional breakdown of this Latin-American country. The question? What does it take to bring a community to this? The Venezuelan food crisis is the result of an economic crisis that is about to become a human crisis. The statistics show this crisis has increased 22% since December of last year.
The statistics from El Venezolano also show that the food crisis is due to the contracting economy. Over the last three years, the economy has receded to the point where there is barely any medical care, citizens have no luxury goods, and basic supplies like personal products, milk and flour are almost impossible to obtain.

More recently, the nation has begun facing an electric emergency. Nicolas Maduro President of Venezuela decree that malls could open more than 4 hours daily, there is no nutritional explanation for the horrible lapse Venezuela is going through and besides that the increase of the child and neonatal mortality and the whole national food chain, almost the 87% of Venezuelan cannot afford everyday food. 9 out of 10 people in Venezuela cannot manage to pay for their basic needs.

The fiscal deficit has reached 80% in regard to gross domestic product, and the external debt has increased four times since Hugo Chavez stopped international sales of petroleum, stopped international investment, nationalized of most of the companies and the leak of national funds when the petroleum prices dramatically increased.

The new policies of the government of Venezuela are not a strategy on the behalf of citizens like David. They are a selfishly involved ideological vision. Instead of changing the view, governments are elected for the people by the people. As a minimum the people should be guaranteed wellbeing and basic necessities.

Therefore, it has become increasingly relevant to hire competent online reputation management (ORM) firms to ensure professional Google search results of a company or individual. The ORM services help companies to stop, prevent or fix PR disasters. These firms also protect and promote a company’s brand.

These services are vital for businesses and individuals who not only want to build but also maintain a good online presence. These services tend to have a huge positive impact on the personal success of a business that goes beyond simply improving search results.

ORM services add value to a brand, contribute to the visibility and longevity of an organization or a career and prevent the misappropriation or misuse of a business’s identity.

Beneful is Plentiful for My K9

As a K-9 dog trainer, I have to ensure that my dogs are healthy and prepared for their life in law enforcement. The moment they come off of their mother’s tit, I begin to feed them Beneful’s Wet Dog (https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/) Food Romana Style Medley. The moist, nutrient filled food not only makes it easy for them to eat and digest but they remain as healthy as they were on their mother’s milk.
A litter of German Shepherds grows faster than any tree could. The moment they put the proper weight on, I shift to a dry dog food. Beneful‘s Dry Dog Food Healthy Puppy. It takes three bowls to satiate the half a dozen pups but I every day I watch them grow in both strength and mind.

It requires a full year of training before I have to turn them over to the agencies that have requested them. By being a grant funded K-9 dog trainer, I am expected to keep these beautiful canines healthy and prepared. During training, I slowly begin to feed them Beneful’s Dry Dog Food Playful Life. These dogs are meant to be partners to our men and women in blue but also trusted companions. They require strength and endurance that only Nestle PurinaStore Petcare Beneful provides.

At the end of a long day of training, the energetic herd of dogs knows what are in my pockets. I reward the worn out dogs with Beneful’s Dog Treats Healthy Dental Ridges after a long day of training. When they were puppies these twisty treats would last all night but at nearly a year old, they are devoured within moments, and I swear I see a grin on their face.

As part of the contract, I advise the future handlers of their diets. I also recommend they stick to Beneful’s plentiful brands. They are not only the healthiest, but I have yet to find a pup that does not enjoy every bite and chew. The feedback I have received has been positive because I make it a point to check up on them every six months or so. I did raise them after all. Beneful products are available online on Amazon.

Blogger Confirms Chaz Dean’s Products Work

I have a secret that most people won’t believe but I promise I’m not lying. I have not always had beautiful hair. It was not until recently that I stumbled across Wen By Chaz (see, http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html) and that is where my beautiful hair journey began. Ever since then I have sworn by Wen by Chaz Dean. Unlike many people I trust Chaz Dean’s products on my own personal thick and wavy hair. I usually purchase it online from ebay.
Recently a beauty blogger over at Bustle confirmed what I have been saying for quite some time now. Wen works. She took readers through a journey of her experiment with WEN and I was impressed by her results as well. The blogger had thin hair at the beginning of the experiment and was slightly apprehensive that the product would work. As she went through her experiment you could see not only her hair transform but so did her confidence. Each day you could tell she was gaining more trust in not only in the product but in her own beauty because beautiful hair does that. It makes you feel beautiful it makes you feel confident and it makes you feel like you can take over the world.

The Positive Thoughts Project Makes Donating Pure Water to Children with Special Education Needs and the Disabled Possible One Post at a Time

QNET‘s RHYTHM Foundation has a great campaign that truly shows the power of positive thoughts, one thought at a time. By just posting a positive thought on the RHYTHM Foundation’s Facebook page for the Positive Thoughts project, QNET will donate after 500 posts a HomePure Red unit that will provide clean drinking water to the children that go to its school Taarana. Taarana helps children ages 6-16 with special education needs and that need special help academically such as children with ADHD, Dyslexia, Down Syndrome, Mild Autism Spectrum Syndrome and more. And if an additional 500 positive comments are posted during the last two weeks of the campaign, QNET will donate an additional RED unit for clean drinking water to Rashid Centre, a center for the disabled. Homepure RED units are advanced water purification systems that actually turn water into very pure Pi-water. Pi-water was first discovered by Dr. Yamashita in Japan who created a bio-water that has the properties that are the closest to the water that is contained in living bodies. This water contains a very small amount of Ferric Ferrous salt (Fe2Fe3). The HomePure water filtration system uses Fe2Fe3 to suppress the increase of excessive free radicals in the water.

It felt great to do something so simple and yet creative, to write a positive comment that I knew would help the campaign be able to donate clean water to children who need it and support organizations that help people most in need. By also sharing the Positive Thoughts Project on Facebook, the campaign can reach your whole Facebook Community. Multiple shares from people who see your post will then likely spread the campaign all around the world. It is also great to see a successful direct selling company like QNET make doing good business and putting humanitarian causes to work go hand in hand.

George Soros Knows Exactly What To Do To Solve The Asylum Chaos

The European Unions lack of a common asylum policy on nybooks.com is causing big problems and has turned a once manageable situation into a serious crisis.

According to billionaire investor George Soros, its time for the European Union to come up with a comprehensive plan. In order for the plan to work, George Soros believes it must be centered around human rights and extend far beyond just the European borders.

Here are the six components Soros believes the comprehensive plan should consist of:

#1 – First and foremost the European Union must be willing to accept at least one million asylum seekers per year on http://topics.wsj.com/person/S/george-soros/209 for the next several years. To make this happen adequate financing is critical.

#2 – Secondly the European Union must be willing to lead the global effort to ensure countries such as Lebanon and Jordan have enough funding to care for the refugees making their way into those countries.

#3 – A single EU Asylum and Migration Agency must be built starting immediately. The current system on nytimes.com, which consists of 28 separate systems, is very expensive and simply doesn’t work.

#4 – Safe channels must be established so asylum seekers can get from their current location to a safe place. This is urgent as it will help calm the panic.

#5 – Global standards must be set to ensure asylum seekers and migrants are treated the right way. This is a major component of the comprehensive plan.

#6 – The private sector must be mobilized. Church groups and businesses must step up and sponsor some of the asylum seekers. This is the only way the European Union will be able to handle the influx of migrants every year.

Who Is George Soros?

George Soros was born in 1930 in Hungary Budapest. After surviving the Nazi occupation he fled to England in 1947 at the age of 17. While in England he attended the London School of Economics. After graduating george Soros moved to the United States where he would eventually settle in and create a very successful investment fund.

Since 1979 Soros has been a very active philanthropist. George Soros is the founder and chair of The Open Society Foundations which is a nonprofit that focuses on human rights, open society values and transparency.

George Soros is also an author and has written over a dozen books, articles and essays for various publications, magazines and newspapers.
