Nutrients are not lost, and your dog receives the wholesome flavor of real food that he/she is longing for. Once your Spot has tasted the Beneful line of products, they will soon pick their favorites or you can feed them daily with the age-appropriate bag for the age of your dog, such as puppy food for your puppy. Either way, dogs show more energy and a shinier coat when they are fed Beneful every day. You will benefit as the owner by their playful behavior and fewer trips to the vet.

    Woke Twitter Wakes People To The Harsh Reality Of Racist Tweets 

    Woke Twitter has woken up people in South Africa and the world at large to racist remarks made on Twitter. Justin van Vuuren, Penny Sparrow and Chris Hart were in an unenviable spot after they used the popular micro-blogging platform and Facebook to make racist remarks. The tweets have seen charges brought against the three of them and Hart suspended from Standard Bank as an analyst. The backlash against the racist remarks also resulted in Justin van Vuuren losing an endorsement deal with FutureLife for the fitness gyms he owns in South Africa.

    Woke Twitter is a consciousness movement that seeks to ensure political and social correctness. Being “woke” means that one is politically and socially conscious. The movement seeks to cut through the hype and ensure people are aware of the real issues. Woke Twitter uses screenshots of offensive and insensitive media post to create memes and hashtags that bring attention to such posts. It targets posts by social media users that are racist or show gender discrimination.

    The remarks were made on Twitter and Facebook by the three on January 3, 2016. Following their being highlighted by Woke Twitter, social media users rallied to condemn the demeaning remarks targeted at black South Africans. This saw South Africans both black and white and social media users worldwide take to Twitter to post tweets in response to the despicable remarks.

    The issue has raised a debate about free speech versus the right to human dignity. While the constitution protects everyone’s free speech right, it is important to ensure that this does not infringe on the rights of others. Legal analyst Brenda Wardle asserts that Sparrow’s and the others accused used their freedom of speech to infringe on the right to human dignity of others.

    She asserts that freedom of speech and expression is limited to the constitution’s specific clauses unlike human dignity. By comparing black South Africans to animals, apes and monkeys, Sparrow prejudiced the rights of all black South Africans.

    Wardle is one of the activists on the forefront of the activist activity and controversy. She earned a Bachelor of Law from the University of South Africa. She has been vocal on many controversial issues. She has been involved in advocating for many social and political issues especially those involving human rights, politics, poverty, education and children.

    She became widely known by handling the legal implications of Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius’ case. She has authored a book on it titled To Kill A Fragile Rose. She has also made many appearances in several news networks as a guest analyst in Africa, America and Britain.

    How Will Greg Hague And Real Estate Mavericks Change The Way Americans Sell Homes? 

    Greg Hague has some radical ideas about selling homes. Home sales have not changed in several decades, and Greg does not see the point in maintaining the old system. He founded Real Estate Mavericks to help realtors learn how to sell homes like a retail business. This article explains how Greg came about his 22-point system, why it is necessary and what Greg does to help realtors.

    #1: What Are The 22 Points?

    There is not enough in this article to list all 22 points, but the idea behind the Real Estate Mavericks is creating a new system. The system at Real Estate Mavericks is based on retail marketing, and Greg trains realtors to market their homes like a computer company markets its new laptop. Homes are not appealing on their own, and Greg urges agents to use their resources to make each home look exciting.

    #2: Market Before The Home Is Listed

    The most critical point for Greg is what is done with a listing before it goes on MLS. Mls is not the end of the road for a home, but MLS should not be the beginning, either. Greg asks realtors to send their colleagues details on an exciting new home before it goes on the market. Interest will grow with people who are looking for homes right now, and someone may have lined up to see the home the day it goes on MLS.

    The marketing program for a home must continue after it goes on the market. Realtors are shown how to use social media to market homes, and there are several options that allow realtors to list homes in a manner that is far more exciting than waiting for leads to come in from MLS. It is much easier to use social media for marketing.

    #3: Use Many Social Media Accounts

    Realtors are taught in the Real Estate Mavericks program to use as many social media accounts as possible to market their homes. The accounts will all reach different people, and the accounts will provide global appeal for a home. Someone who is looking for a home in a far away city may see the listing online, and it is a quick phone call to line up an appointment. Taking one extra step makes all the difference with the Real Estate Mavericks.

    Real Estate Mavericks places to make a change in the way Americans sell homes. A home must be listed with a bit of wisdom that is not found in using MLS. The plan created by Real Estate Mavericks has been taught to many realtors successfully, and it will change the appeal of every home listed under the plan.

    Soros Foundations Are Banned In Russia 

    George Soros has friends all over the world, but the world seems to end at Russia’s borders. The billionaire hedge fund guru has been told two foundations of his no longer welcome in the country. Russia has chosen to ban both the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation from Russia. Fortune has noted the reason behind the banning is Russia’s government deems the organizations “undesirable” and “security threats”.

    Soros has been in the news a great deal over the past few weeks. Most recently, his dire warnings upon an upcoming financial meltdown and a prediction of the collapse of the European Union garnered major headlines. The Russia ban does not bar Soros based on economic commentary. Rather, the government is uncomfortable with the political leanings of his foundations.

    In previous months, Soros states on Fortune.com that aid should be increased to Ukraine, a nation currently embroiled in civil war-like situation with separatists aligned with Russia. Needless to say, the Russian government is not going to be very open to allowing Soros’ foundations to gain an expansive foothold within the Russian Federation.

    Likely, Soros’ past successes in numerous life endeavors makes the government of Russia nervous. And yes, Soros has experienced a lot of success over the course of his long life.

    George Soros earned tremendous amounts of money thanks to his success in currency trading and hedge fund managing. He became a philanthropist in 1979 and has funded a tremendous number of progressive causes over the ensuing years. Soros has also authored a number of books with one of his most recent being The Tragedy of the European Union (2014).

    Soros has issued public statements regarding his disappointment with the decision of the Russian government. Both Soros and representatives of his foundation has suggested the ban is only going to be a temporary one and the doors will be opened once again in the near future. In all likelihood, barring major political changes and upheavals in Russia, the ban is not going to be reversed.

    This does not mean Soros’ foundations won’t be able to influence things in Russia. Social media and other modes of communication have a tendency to breach many barred doors. The foundations would be more effective if they were able to run full operations in Russia and barriers to that goal remain in place. Once again, the situation does have a slim possibility of improving in time.

    Igor Cornelsen Shares His Basic Tactics For Investing And Banking In Brazil 

    Igor Cornelsen is a Brazilian banker and investor who is committed to the education of the populace on brandyourself.com. Igor understands that many citizens of Brazil are a bit nervous about banking and investment, but he has created a set of four steps that will help people understand the banking industry better. This article briefly touches on these four steps in no particular order, and the advice that Igor on resume gives will help people feel more comfortable using their money to make money.

    #1: Brazil Has Many Large Banks

    Brazil is not devoid of large banks in any way. The country has ten large banks that include offerings from Citibank and Banco Itau. Each of the ten top banks in the country are great places to save money, start a checking account or invest money. Brazilians who are not sure where to go may visit any of the banks Igor Cornelsen on thestreet has promoted, and his promotion is a good word for each bank.

    #2: The New Finance Minister Will Help

    Brazil recently appointed a new finance minister, and the minister will likely help return the country what are considered normal business practices. Brazil was hit quite hard by the global financial crisis, and the country’s finance ministry did not do much to help. Igor Cornelsen wants all investors to understand that a new minister will help right some of the wrongs of the past.

    #3: Do Not Hedge On The Real

    Anyone who is hedging their bets on the real must take a closer look at how the markets have treated currency in Brazil. The currency appears to be a bit overvalued at the moment, and anyone who believes that their holdings are stronger for it must take a closer look. Investors who are fooled by the high value of the real will soon be disappointed when they discover that the real should not be quite as valuable it is right now. Wise investors take the value of the real at the moment with a grain of salt.

    #4: Brazil And China Are Linked

    Brazil and China are inextricably linked to one another via their economies. Anyone who is investing in Brazil must have a strong look at China to ensure that they understand how the Chinese economy is performing. There have been concerns about the performance of the Chinese economy recently, and Igor urges anyone reading his literature to understand China before investing.

    Igor Cornelsen is an investor who is committed to the education of people in Brazil who fear investment. He does not want people to avoid investment because of fear, and his four simple tips will make investment simple for anyone who want to begin using their own money to make just a bit more money.
