Avoid Feeding Your German Shepherd The Wrong Food

The loyal German Shepherd is known for their bravery and their aptitude to recollect special training for various unique services. Beginning around 1908, these special dogs arrived in the U.S., becoming quite popular right after World War I as soldiers whom returned home, told of events which revolved around specific German Shepherds who displayed particular acts of bravery. Soon this breed was becoming the family pet.

Many pet owners naturally are eager for their German Shepherd to living a healthy and long life. This can be accomplished by ensuring your dog receives enough exercise daily and plenty of discipline to make for a good and safe family pet. In addition to providing it affection, you must feed it high quality food like those offered from the Beneful brand.

You do not want to feed a German Shepherd food meant for a smaller sized dog, so choose food wisely. Most large dogs enjoy beefy food, vegetables and maybe wheat, rice and fish, but like humans, they can be picky eaters. If your dog is partial to wet food try Beneful Prepared Meals which is available in beef stew, rice and lamb, roasted chicken and simmered turkey. This is also available in a variety pack so a few flavors can be tried. For a combination of chewy chunks and crunchy little kibbles, they may enjoy Beneful Dry Dog Food, Original style, made using real beef. Offered in many flavor varieties, you dog may likely dig into their initial bowl of this and perhaps not beg for more food in the evening.

Depending on if your dog likes fish, do try Healthy Radiance Skin and Coat Dry Dog Food. This selection is great because it also ensures they maintain a healthy coat. Chock full of omega-rich nutrients, rice, salmon and vegetables, your dog will likely avoid turning up their nose at it, instead digging right in! Don’t forget snacks such as Beneful Baked Delights which is sure to become a regular treat in your cabinet. One reason dogs seem to enjoy this treat is the incredible flavors like Chicken and Cheese (very cheesy) and Apple and Bacon.

Obviously you want to be sure that your German Shepherd eats well, but it must be affordable in which Beneful absolutely is. Ensure that you are feeding your dog the right high quality food that is appropriate for their particular breed and read the label.

Do You Wanna Help My Friend Jon? I Think You Do

Earth Force is a charitable organization based in Denver that is working tirelessly towards the realisation of an environment that is greener, healthier and cleaner than what we have now. One of my dearest friends, Jon Urbana, has joined their noble efforts by starting a campaign with his lacrosse campers at Next Level, all done via crowd funding using the Go Fund Me site. He has set a goal of getting at least $1750.

About Jon Urbana

I’ve known him for about 20 years before we went to Villanova and played lacrosse together, and Jon is not a stranger to online funding campaigns, having run another funding campaign for supporting ARAS recently. He believes in making the world a better place, with a personal website entirely dedicated to this subject matter.

Jon also uses Twitter to emphasize the amazing power the youth as well as the world’s masses hold in making these online funding campaigns successful. Through his Facebook posting, shares, likes, and more, Urbana aims at mobilizing the youth, the majority of whom follow him on Instagram as they are very active on social media.

This is the key reason why Urbana opted for funding through a crowdfunded type of online campaign – to attract the youth. He wants them to join his movement together with Earth Force Inc as participants and activists to improve the local neighbourhoods and environments. Contact Jon on Linkedin to see how you can help!

Jon Urbana is an avid Instagrammer and recently learned the art of flying an airplane. As with all things he does, he excelled to the point of an FAA award that was documented in the Aviation Business Gazette. The man makes some pretty nice music too.

On the business side of things, Jon is Next Level Lacrosse Camp’s co-founder, apart from being obviously a charity supporter. Next Level Lacrosse Camp is among Colorado’s finest summer training programs mostly for young lacrosse players.

His involvement with his campers, even making videos with them, has made Jon realise the commitment and care that the young people have towards making the environment better and cleaner. He collaborated with Earth Force Inc in order to bring more youths into the noble project, youths who in this case are ready and willing to dedicate their energy and time towards making mother earth cleaner and more beautiful.

Go Fund Me

The Go Fund Me website offers a great platform to people who wish to start their online campaigns aimed at raising funds for charitable causes. Most businesses and people are getting online nowadays due to the huge potential the online markets offer as well as social circles. This presents a good platform to create and highlight awareness on the societal and environmental issues affecting the world today.

Chicago’s Real Estate Market

It is evident that Chicago’s real estate market is back on track thanks to the rising prices and sales. As such, real estate agents are having an easy time getting their sales target reached. Nonetheless, the most determining factor is the decline in sales of distressed properties, and one may argue that we are finally off the hook with house bubble meltdown.

Nevertheless, the catch, if you look keenly is that the recovery has not been uniform across town. Research shows that the south and west sides are still experiencing the aftermath of housing bust whereas real estate business near downtown and on the north side seems to have picked up well. You can easily point out the Kenwood and Hyde Park, which have transformed into oases of good business that never ended with anything better but short sales and foreclosures.

Either way, it is important to consider the dynamics of time in that, how bad was it when the meltdown hit the market in these regions, and again, how much have things turned up as of now? So it is easy to pick three zip codes and examine them in proportion to the highlighted queries.

The areas chosen were 60617 and 60614, which stand for Lincoln Park and 60605, which is mostly South Loop though it also falls within the other two zip codes. Taking into consideration that data is highly variable within a month’s time, it was only wise to look at it on a 6-month average.

According to the graph captured by MLS, 60617 responded much sooner to the meltdown but also picked higher than the other two zip codes. In addition, all zip codes showed a significant increase since the beginning of 2013 though 60614 takes the crown here, as it never recorded a rise above 20 percent distressed sales. As of 60605, it started out earlier than 60614 but they ended up on the same level. Nevertheless, this does not come as a surprise, but it answers the big question, whether Chicago is out of the meltdown uniformly or not. It did not.

As for Majeed Ekbal, he has more than 15 years in marketing and new business development, which has helped him develop global marketing campaigns. He has also led specialized direct and digital marketing, partnership development as well as budget management.

He is the man behind digital and social media marketing in all business segments by integrating such policies in marketing research, installation, strategy development and implementation. Majeed demonstrates excellent skills in comprehensive marketing strategies and charity awareness that generate revenue while assembling and mentoring diverse teams.
