New consumer app and brand management portals are part of the brand's strategy to connect pet parents with top-tier pet specialty brands and industry experts.

The opportunity to connect pet parents, top-tier specialty brands and pet experts has never been more important.”

— John Miziolek

TORONTO, CANADA, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — PetzTrove® Inc., a Canadian app development company, today announced the launch of its new app for iOS and Android mobile devices and online brand management and content development portals.

The pet industry has continued to grow at approximately 4 billion dollars USD per year since 2017 with almost 70% of North American households owning a pet according to the American Pet Products Association. There are now more pet-owning households than there are with children. In North America pet parents spent over 11.9 billion dollars USD in 2019 on food in pet specialty stores, according to Petfood Industry magazine, with the majority of that total devoted to retail sales.

“The opportunity to connect pet parents, top-tier specialty brands and pet experts has never been more important.” said John Miziolek, President of PetzTrove® Inc. “Millennials have overtaken baby boomers as the largest pet-owning generation which is indicative of the growth in the industry as they earn more income and spend more on their pets. Our new digital platform is the first of its kind that will allow brand owners and pet experts to engage directly with pet parents.”

The new mobile app makes it easy for pet parents to collect points for being physically active and learning from pet experts on how to improve the wellbeing of their pets. Activities like walks, play time and engaging with pet related content all lead to collecting points. Pet parents can then redeem their points for discounts at pet specialty retailers across North America. The new brand management and pet expert portals make it easy to connect directly with pet parents and provide rewards and advice.

Innovative features of the PetzTrove® Digital Platform include:

Digital Platform for Pet Parents-the consumer app is designed to promote an active lifestyle, help pet parents engage with pet experts and content creators, and reward them with discounts for caring for their pets.

Brand Management and Pet Expert Portal-the portal is designed to allow brand managers and pet experts to engage directly with pet parents. The online portal is simple, intuitive and provides an unprecedented level of connection to key target demographics, right inside the PetzTrove® app.

State-of-the-art technology-the PetzTrove® app includes options for both time-based and GPS-based tracking of your time with your pet. This allows pet parents to customize their experience with the app and how they accumulate rewards. The app also allows you to share it with friends and receive bonus points.

Sneak Peak at the Final Label Requirements for Cannabidiol Life’s CBD Capsules in Peru.

CANNABIDIOL LIFE BECOMES THE FIRST AMERICAN (USA) CBD BRAND & FIRST CBD CAPSULE PRODUCT REGISTERED IN PERU.

ORLANDO, FL, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cannabidiol Life, a Florida-based, GMP, USDA Organic manufacturing CBD brand, increase their global market share by obtaining government approval to do business in Peru. This is ground-breaking for the CBD industry as a whole.

Cannabidiol Life is now recognized in and by Peru for the following:

– first government-certified American (USA) CBD Brand to be registered, imported, and sold in Peru
– first ever government-approved CBD Capsule product (CBD capsules were non-existent in Peru prior to Cannabidiol Life’s product registration)

OFFICIAL PERUVIAN GOVERNMENT REGISTRATION NUMBER:
Registro Sanitario N°: PNE-1625

Less than a month ago, Cannabidiol Life announced their first international feat by not only becoming registered with the Brazilian government but by also becoming a medical CBD prescription in Brazil.

While working on becoming registered in Brazil, Cannabidiol Life was simultaneously in negotiation with the Peruvian government and a Peruvian brick and mortar wellness company; in preparation for rolling out the first USA-based Cannabidiol product collection and cannabinoid centric dispensary in Lima, Peru.

Recognizing the Cannabidiol Life brand and their Full Spectrum CBD Capsules as the first CBD capsule product to be registered with the Peruvian government for distribution, Chief Operations Officer, Zachary Keeney stated,

“This has been a labor of love to complete. We began the process in September of 2019 and had to overcome some considerable bureaucratic challenges to proudly achieve this.” He went on to state, “It was 18 months from initial contact and 12 months from the start of submission of documentation before we received governmental approval.”

Cannabidiol Life, a family/friend operated business, was initially founded in 2017 with a sole focus on providing the first of its kind, comprehensive CBD product, and CBD medical education website. Since, Cannabidiol Life has perfected their unique extraction processes, extended their global mission, and through all their success, they continually pride themselves on always putting people and the planet before profit.

Three countries and three and a half years later, Cannabidiol Life continually proves to the world that they are the house-hold CBD brand we’ve all been waiting for.

Oklahoma Court Orders “Tiger King” Huckster Jeff Lowe Must Relinquish All Tiger Cubs to the United States

A big cat in captivity.

Animal Wellness Action Leaders React to Court Order Directing Seizure of Tiger Cubs from Jeff Lowe’s Unlicensed “Tiger King Park” in Thackerville, Okla.

Jeff Lowe’s serial acts of animal mistreatment have demonstrated that he’s not fit to be an animal caretaker.”

— Wayne Pacelle

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Last night, U.S. District Court Judge F. Heil III, based in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, issued a devasting judgment in favor of the United States and against exotic animal exhibitor and dealer Jeff Lowe, who was prominently featured in the Netflix sensation “Tiger King.” The United States this summer initiated a series of legal actions against Lowe for his failure to comply with the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act.

In granting the motion from the United States for a preliminary injunction and a separate motion for a temporary restraining order, Judge Heil decided that Jeff Lowe must relinquish all of his tiger cubs (up to a year in age) and their mothers to the United States for subsequent placement at reputable sanctuaries and “shall immediately cease exhibiting animals protected by the ESA and the AWA without a valid USDA exhibitor’s license.”

The court's order, just the latest in a legal proceeding initiated in a sustained and careful set of legal maneuvers by the U.S. Department of Justice, is a tale of horrors recounting Lowe's mistreatment of animals at the Wynnewood facility that was featured in "Tiger King" and continuing at his unlicensed "Tiger King Park" in Thackerville.

"Based on the totality of the evidence presented regarding the alleged ESA violations at the Wynnewood Location and at Tiger King Park … the Court concludes that the United States can likely demonstrate that Defendants 'harmed' or 'harassed' numerous ESA protected animals," wrote Judge Heil. The court goes on to conclude that "the United States has demonstrated that Defendants are placing the health of their animals in serious danger by providing substandard care in violation of the ESA and by failing to comply with applicable AWA provisions and regulations. Defendants’ habit, pattern, and practice of providing inadequate nutrition and timely veterinary care, and failure to employ an attending veterinarian, has resulted in injury – and even death – to a number of their animals, including ESA-protected animals such as Nala, Gizzy, Dot, Mama, Lizzie, Promise, Petunia, and Young Yi.”

Animal Wellness Action president Wayne Pacelle and former Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson, the co-chairman of the National Law Enforcement Council for Animal Wellness Action and the Animal Wellness Foundation, reacted to the decision.

“Jeff Lowe’s serial acts of animal mistreatment have demonstrated that he’s not fit to be an animal caretaker,” said Pacelle. “The best course of action for him is to turn all of the animals at his Tiger King Park to reputable animal welfare groups and go into a different business that does not involve animal care.”

“The judge’s order in the federal case recounts in painful detail the misery that Jeff Lowe and his team have inflicted on animals under their care,” said General Edmondson. “He’s clearly unfit to operate the zoo he intends to open in 2021 in Thackerville.”

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Big Cat Public Safety Act on December 3rds by a vote of 272 to 114, eight months after the salacious reality television series “Tiger King” put the animal welfare and public safety issues of private ownership of tigers and lions on the American radar screen. The legislation seeks to ban the trade in big cats as pets and to halt the exploitation of the animals for cub petting at roadside zoos — two forms of commerce that have been creating a stream of big cats who soon get too big and dangerous to handle and then are discarded by the industry and face subsequent peril.

Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, and the Center for a Humane Economy express their gratitude to federal inspectors who documented abuses at Lowe’s facilities and to attorneys with the Environment and Natural Resources Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.

NOAA Declares 2020 the Second Hottest Year on Record, a Very Close Second

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

This observation documents global warming but suggests that increases in greenhouse-gas emissions may not be the best explanation

Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

— Dr. Peter L. Ward

JACKSON, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Detailed changes in global temperature trends since 1950 show a remarkably close correlation with changes in the ozone layer” according to Dr. Peter L. Ward, a geophysicist who worked 27 years with the U.S. Geological Survey. Ward was a leader in establishing a major national research program. He has testified before Congress, chaired a committee at the White House, worked on a committee for vice-president Gore, published many scientific papers, and received two national awards for educating the public about science.

“What is surprising,” according to Ward, “is that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain these sudden changes in global temperature without a great deal of arm waving. Furthermore, no scientist has ever shown in the laboratory that increases in greenhouse-gas concentrations can actually cause warming of Earth’s surface.”

Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased every year since 1950 at ever-increasing rates. Average global surface temperatures, on the other hand, have changed much more irregularly.

All four major analyses of global temperatures by NASA, NOAA, the United Kingdom’s Met Office, and Berkeley Earth show that temperatures remained relatively constant from 1950 to 1970, rose suddenly from 1970 to 1998, remained relatively constant from 1998 to 2014, rose very rapidly from 2014 to 2016, decreased substantially in 2018 but rose again in 2019 and 2020. Each of these sudden changes in temperature correlates quite closely with sudden changes in the thickness of the ozone layer.

The ozone layer, 9 to 22 miles above Earth, absorbs nearly all ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation from Sun, protecting life on Earth from this high-energy radiation that causes sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, and mutations.

“What is critically important,” Ward explains, “is that when a molecule of ozone absorbs ultraviolet-B radiation, the molecule is dissociated—it comes apart. The molecular pieces fly away from each other at high velocity, much like the ends of a snapped rubber band. Dissociation converts molecular bond energy holding the molecule together directly and completely into linear velocity, which is directly proportional to air temperature, warming the ozone layer. The molecular pieces can then recombine, so that dissociation will continue as long as UV-B radiation is available.”

A depleted ozone layer absorbs less UV-B, growing cooler as observed. More UV-B is then measured to reach Earth where it dissociates ground level ozone pollution, warming Earth’s surface. Warming since 1970 was nearly twice as much in the northern hemisphere, home to 90% of humanity and, therefore, home to most ground-level ozone pollution. Warming since 1970 was greatest on the Antarctic Peninsula, where ozone depletion was greatest.

UV-B radiation penetrates oceans more than a hundred feet, raising ocean heat content very efficiently since 1970, an observation that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain.

Around 1970, ozone depletion began to increase especially above Antarctica, forming the Antarctic ozone hole in mid to late winter. The greatest depletion of ozone over Antarctica occurred in 1998.

During the 1960s, chemical companies manufactured chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) for use as spray-can propellants, refrigerants, foam-blowing agents, and solvents. CFCs were safer to use than alternatives because they were unusually inert.

In 1974, scientists discovered that CFCs in the stratosphere can be broken down by solar ultraviolet radiation, releasing atoms of chlorine. One atom of chlorine can destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone. Their work earned earned the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1995.

In 1985, with discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, scientists and political leaders moved quickly to pass the United Nations Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which took effect in 1989, severely limiting manufacturing of CFCs. By 1993, concentrations of CFCs in the atmosphere stopped increasing. By 1995, global average ozone depletion stopped increasing. By 1998, global average temperatures stopped increasing.

Humans had caused global warming beginning around 1970 by manufacturing CFCs. Humans had stopped the increase in global warming by passing the Montreal Protocol.

In 2014, the volcano Bárðarbunga in central Iceland began erupting basaltic lava flows, covering an area of 33 square miles within six months, the largest basaltic eruption since 1784. Average global temperatures began rising at five-times the rate observed between 1970 and 1998, reaching a maximum in 2016.

Temperatures increased by volcanic eruptions normally recover within a few years. Temperatures cooled until 2018 when Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted basaltic lava flows from the lower East Rift. These lava flows were much more extensive than typical in Hawaii, covering 39 square miles of land in three months. The rate of lava extrusion was nearly the same as for Bárðarbunga, but the eruption lasted half as long. Average global temperatures began rising again, causing 2020 to be nearly as warm as 2016.

Basaltic lavas contain exceptionally large amounts of chlorine and bromine gases. It only takes a small amount of these gases to reach the lower stratosphere to deplete the ozone layer. Ozone depletion is observed following most volcanic eruptions, peaking two years after the eruption stops.

Explosive volcanic eruptions cause ozone depletion but also eject water vapor and sulfur dioxide into the lower stratosphere forming an aerosol or mist that reflects and disperses sunlight, causing net global cooling for two to four years. Climate is warmed by basaltic lava flows and cooled by explosive eruptions.

Throughout Earth history, major, sudden global warming is contemporaneous with major basaltic lava flows—the larger the flow, the greater the warming.

It is the Bárðarbunga eruption in Iceland in 2014 that appears to have caused 2016 to be the hottest year on record. It was the Kilauea eruption in Hawaii during 2018 that appears to have caused 2020 to be nearly as hot.

If ozone depletion is the major cause of global warming, global temperatures are expected to decrease slowly throughout this century. Major warming predicted by computer climate models based on greenhouse-warming theory will not and cannot occur.

“Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

Federal Appeals Court Rejects Puerto Rico’s Challenge to Anti-Animal Fighting Law

Cockfighting Ring

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed the constitutionality of the federal law against animal fighting as applied to Puerto Rico.

It’s time for Puerto Rico’s cockfighters to obey the law and shut down dozens of cockfighting pits operating in the Commonwealth.”

— Wayne Pacelle

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed the constitutionality of the federal law against animal fighting as applied to Puerto Rico, removing any thread of an argument that cockfighters in the Commonwealth can continue to legally stage animal fights there.

“We affirm the district court’s decision and hold that Section 12615 is a valid exercise of Congress’s Commerce Clause power and does not violate plaintiffs’ individual rights,” wrote the three judge panel in a ruling handed down today. The decision came after cockfighting interests appealed an October 2021 ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Gustavo Gelpi who granted the motion for summary judgment from the United States. Gelpi declared that “[n]either the Commonwealth’s political statues, nor the Territorial Clause, impede the United States Government from enacting laws that apply to all citizens of this Nation alike, whether as a state or territory.”

Club Gallistico and other cockfighting clubs, supported by politicians across the Puerto Rico, challenged the law. Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, and the Center for a Humane Economy filed amicus briefs in support of the United States, and the appeals court thanked the organizations for their involvement.

“The United States has the authority to outlaw staged animal fights in the U.S. Territories, and it has done so,” said Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action, which led the fight for the upgraded anti-animal fighting law. “The Congress, the Federal Courts, and the U.S. Department of Justice have been crystal clear on the matter: engage in animal fighting activities and risk going to prison. It’s time for Puerto Rico’s cockfighters to obey the law and shut down dozens of cockfighting pits operating in the Commonwealth.”

In December 2018, Congress passed and President Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 into law, and that major legislative package applied all prohibitions against animal fighting to all parts of the United States, including the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and Guam. The animal fighting provision had a one-year delay in implementation, taking effect on December 20, 2019. Reps. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., and Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, and Senators Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., led the fight to pass the law.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice in its pleadings, the 2018 upgrade in the law stipulated that cockfighters “may not sponsor or exhibit cockfights, just as prior to §12616 they were prohibited from attending cockfights, possessing game cocks, or engaging in other animal fighting practices that were prohibited both in Puerto Rico and nationwide.”

“Cockfighting is a settled matter, as a question of moral conduct and law,” said Drew Edmondson, who served as Oklahoma Attorney General for 16 years. “This latest ruling by a panel of federal judges reinforces the legal principle that the United States has the power to forbid staged fighting everywhere in the U.S.” General Edmondson is the co-chairman of the National Law Enforcement Council of Animal Wellness Action.

Two U.S. district courts in the territories and now a federal appellate court on the mainland have determined that the United States has the authority to outlaw staged animal fights on every inch of U.S. soil,” added Mr. Pacelle. “It is time for cockfighters to lay down the knives and gaffs that they affix to the birds’ legs, stop placing them in a pit to fight, and move on to other forms of entertainment that do not involve maiming animals.” Puerto Rico and Guam were the last two jurisdictions where cockfighting has been openly conducted, and Animal Wellness Action calls on political leaders there to urge adherence to the law.

Animal Wellness Action (AWA) identified at least 25 venues where cockfighting continued even after the federal law took effect and the District Court had affirmed that law. (Animal Wellness Action has posted copies of some of these promotional materials here.)

“Staged animal fighting is not representative of Puerto Rico, it does not reflect our values, nor our culture,” said Ana Maria Hernández Martí, an Animal Law attorney based in San Juan. “Given the emphatic court rulings on this subject, political leaders in Puerto Rico need to accept the authority of the federal government to stop this inhumane treatment of animals on our island.”

Under the federal anti-animal fighting law, it is a crime to:

– Knowingly sponsor or exhibit in an animal fighting venture;
– Knowingly attend an animal fighting venture, or knowingly cause an individual who has not attained the age of 16 to attend an animal fighting venture;
– Knowingly buy, sell, possess, train, transport, deliver, or receive any animal for purposes of having the animal participate in an animal fighting venture;
– Knowingly use the mail service of the U.S. Postal Service, or any “written, wire, radio televisions or other forms of communications in, or use a facility of, interstate commerce,” to advertise an animal for use in an animal fighting venture, or to advertise a knife, gaff, or other sharp instrument designed to be attached to the leg of a bird for use in an animal fighting venture, or to promote or in any other manner further an animal fighting venture except as performed outside the U.S.;
– Knowingly sell, buy, transport, or deliver in interstate or foreign commerce “a knife, a gaff, or any other sharp instrument” designed or intended to be attached to the leg of a bird for use in an animal fighting venture.
– Citizens can send tips and other information to animalcrueltytips@animalwellnessaction.org. The reward program is also mentioned on www.endcockfighting.org, which serves as a comprehensive resource about the issue and call to action for citizens to help end this illegal animal cruelty.

Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, and the Center for a Humane Economy were represented in this case by Jessica Blome of Greenfire Law.

Not many people take advantage of tree services in winter months. We'll tell you why it's a smart choice to call up Rhode Island tree Removal.

PROVIDENCE, RI, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The tree experts from Rhode Island Tree Removal want to inform residential and commercial customers that they are still providing their top-notch tree services in Rhode Island throughout the winter months. In fact, they are encouraging those that need tree removal or tree trimming to act now, as rates are generally cheaper when the trees on your property are dormant.

The professionals dedicated and passionate about landscaping and tree services in Rhode Island are looking to expand their business this winter, and that means providing information about having tree trimming and other projects scheduled even after the snowflakes hit the ground. After working in the industry for over 20 years, they are fully aware of how much simpler tree cutting services in Rhode Island are when there aren't obstructions such as heavy foliage to deal with.

"As soon as the leaves start to die off, tree removal in Rhode Island becomes a whole lot easier for our crew. We don't have to mess around with the piles of vegetation that accompany trees in the spring and summer months. Because there are fewer difficulties to encounter, we lower or tree service costs slightly when the weather is colder," owner and operator of Rhode Island Tree Removal stated.

Cutting or performing a tree trimming service in Rhode Island takes half the time when limbs and branches don't have to be dealt with, and there is no demand for hauling away the unsightly mess that comes with them. In addition, there are fewer hazards for the homeowner and commercial tree service customer to face if the tree service is done prior to snow and ice accumulation. Branches hanging out over structures can quickly get weighed down by the precipitation, and tree limbs snap and cause significant damage to roofs, siding, and other building features.

Recognizing where the risks are is the first step, and the tree experts from this reputable tree company offer free tree assessments for new customers. They can perform the service on location or virtually, depending on what the client is more comfortable with. He or she will list the possible alternatives to removing the trees or trimming them back to reduce the potential for falling limbs or branches.

Cabling and bracing a healthy tree is an alternative option for landowners who want to keep their trees but are worried about the dangers associated with the build-up of heavy snow and ice. During the evaluation of the tree's health, honest and knowledgeable answers about the tree's condition and whether or not this service will be beneficial are discussed. The client always gets to make the final decision, and all costs and fees are discussed in detail before anything starts.

The proud director of Rhode Island Removal said, "So many of the people we talk to assume that because it's winter, they don't have to worry about their lawns and landscaping. Technically you don't, but realistically it's the best time to have these home improvements prepared. We keep our prices a tad cheaper for several reasons, including a smaller demand and fewer obstacles. As long as the ground isn't frozen solid to a point where our equipment can't get through the soil, we're prepared to tackle any size job."

In line with the season of winter and the giving spirit, the tree arborists from Rhode Island Tree Removal want to remind all homeowners and business owners that they should never attempt to perform a tree service without the proper training and equipment. With their collection of quality, well-maintained mulchers, chain saws, and other industry-related tools, they will do even the most complicated job quickly and safely.

If you need an emergency tree removal in Rhode Island, they have someone sitting by the phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They show up quickly and clear away the problem before it gets any worse. Their customer service department assists with filing the appropriate paperwork to have the tree service in Rhode Island covered by your homeowner's insurance policy, if applicable.
