According to wikipedia was first introduced into the market in 2001, it has been a company that has developed numerous food and treats for dogs throughout the years. It is one of the most successful brands of the company, being used by more than 9.5 million households each day.

Beneful has long been known for its unique advertising campaigns. In Germany, posters advertising the dog food were implemented in an award-winning advertising campaign that released the scent of dog food. Dogs were able to sniff the posters when out on walks with their owners. In 2011 television commercials by Beneful in Austria emitted a series of high pitch sounds, all but one too high for humans to hear, to elicit a response in the dogs.

In 2012 in New York, interactive billboards from Beneful were used to allow people to play virtual fetch in the subway station. These billboards were also installed in Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and St. Louis. In 2013 Beneful once again captivated Internet users with a creative video that implemented the use of a Rube Goldberg machine, this time by adding more than a half dozen dogs to the popular advertising tool. The commercial required many takes, but was successfully completed and has been viewed over seven million times by YouTube users.

An annual competition, Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest, is hosted by the dog food brand, which allows competitors to submit designs for renovations to dog parks. Beneful gives $500,000 toward the renovation of the dog parks each year. The contest has resulted in new dog parks being produced in Johns Creek, Georgia; Alabaster, Alabama; and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

As a result of a popular dog food product and effective advertising, Beneful became the fourth most popular dog food product in 2012, the latest year that statistics are available.

Beneful has six different types of wet canned food, as well as a variety of snacks for dogs that are useful as training rewards, treats or small snacks in-between meals. Every bag of dog food that is sold in the U.S. each year is made in one of the eight manufacturing plants owned by Purina.

New Startup FreedomPop Raises $30 Million With Plans to Become a Billion Dollar Company

In an article originally published on Tech Crunch, it was said that FreedomPop has raised another $30 million in funding that will help take the company to another level. FreedomPop is a global mobile business with a single mission in mind – to make mobile internet, texting, and calling free and readily available to the entire world. In addition to offering these free services, FreedomPop upsells extra, premium services that clients can buy.

Throughout the past few months, there have been many rumors about M&A funding the company, and those offers have clearly been rejected, as Freedom Pop has chosen to fund themselves independently. Rather than sell the company, CEO Stephen Stokols says that the company is now on the way to becoming with a billion dollar company, with plans to raise another $50-$100 million in the next year.

FreedomPop will get much of it’s funding from both the United States and other countries. As of right now, the company is growing at approximately 25% each quarter, and is even projected to reach Ebitda later in the year.

Steven Stokols even said that Freedom Pop is on track to have one million users in the United States by the end of this year, and is currently in the process of growing it’s international customer base.

FreedomPop differs from other mobile carriers, because other companies tend to buy minutes, data, and messages in bulk rather than buying only what their customers will use. On the other hand, FreedomPop ensures that their customers are only paying for exactly what they use, because they are able to mediate different usage tiers. This new approach is not only cost-effective; it is far less wasteful. Other companies are even beginning to replicate this new idea, such as RingPlus from Sprint.

Holographic Visual Effects are Changing the Entertainment Industry

Visual effects are increasingly becoming a staple of digital entertainment. Advances in computer technology have movie producers scrambling to implement the latest advances in visual effects into their productions. However, while many people believe that visual effects are primarily for futuristic or action based productions, many producers are now looking at visual effects for recreations of more natural events and even simulation of digital humans.

The ability to have a digital replica of a specific individual in history is a potentially game changing achievement in the world of visual effects. One of the new applications of this impressive technology is in holograms of deceased music artists. These types of productions allow for fans of these artists to have a unique experience that is essentially indistinguishable from reality. Holograms of entertainers open up a whole new world of live entertainment.

As with any introduction of new technology, the use of holographic digital entertainment requires great skill from talented artists. When creating these 3D holographs, artists must take into account a much higher level of detail than traditional 2D effects. When people view holographic productions, they have a higher level of scrutiny and demand even more realism than before, creating a unique challenge for the industry. Likewise, hologram producers must the visual aspects, mannerisms, and movement patterns of their creations in order to achieve true realism.

One of the pioneers of 3D visual effects is John Textor. With successful projects such as recreating Tupac and Michael Jackson, Textor has set new standards of quality in the world of 3D visual effects. Fans that have seen his productions are constantly impressed with the amount of detail and realism that goes into his work. Likewise, the entertainment industry is keeping a close eye on Textor’s creations to see how this advancing technology can fit into their productions.

Kim Kardashian Ready For Baby Number 3 Already

We are all still in shock over Kim’s announcement of being pregnant with her second child, for awhile it seemed that she would not be able to have another child and after her complications with North, Kim insisted that she didn’t want another baby. After having North and falling head over heels in love with her, Kim and Kanye got right on with making their second child, but it wasn’t easy. Kim had to undergo IVF and even an emergency surgery before she was finally able to get pregnant again, now that she is expecting a baby boy, everyone expects her to be done with the baby making but Kim has other plans.

During an interview, the team at Boraie Development said Kim actually shared that she would now consider having a third child. So far her second pregnancy is going very smoothly and she is hoping that her delivery will be problem free, if so she will be attempting to conceive a third child.

Considering Kim and Kanye’s relationship and their love of family, it isn’t odd that they are excited to have a big family to share their love with. North will have lots of brothers and sister and Kim and Kanye will have the empire they have always wanted. For now everyone is just going to have to keep watching Kim’s growing baby bump and hoping for the best. If nothing else Kim’s pregnancy style and fashion this time around is worth the trouble.

Star Trek 3 is Now Star Trek Beyond

The director of the third Star Trek film, Justin Lin, has confirmed the rumored title to the new entry in the rebooted franchise. Star Trek Beyond is the official title. Reportedly, this was the title of the movie before Lin came on board. In all truthfulness, Star Trek Beyond is a really great title.

Details about the plot of the film are not known. Shooting only started recently. Other than the basic premise that Idris Elba plays the bad guy and makes things difficult for everyone, no other aspects of the plot are known.

We do know that Paramount wanted the tone of the new film to be less serious, but not to nerdy. Well, Paramount didn’t say “nerdy” outright but studio executives thought the original script wallowed a bit much in Star Trek geekdom. That might have worked years ago, but not these days. Fans want a fun film with thrills. Guardians of the Galaxy is a perfect example of such a movie. Rumor has it Paramount wants to copy some elements of the Marvel blockbuster. Hopefully, the new Star Trek movie will draw inspiration from Marvel’s approach but avoids outright copying anything.

Star Trek Beyond might prove to be a very prophetic title. PR Newswire tells that the series may be moving beyond what we commonly see in a Star Trek feature. The series may be moving beyond J.J. Abrams’ approach to filmmaking.

Star Trek Beyond hits theaters in July of 2016.
