Personal injury attorney Dan Newlin has recently been in the news for his role in the $100 million award of damages for the teenage victim of a shooting. However, Newlin has been in the business of helping people for more than 20 years and has used the status he has attained as one of the most successful personal injury attorneys in Florida to aid the community in any way possible. Despite becoming a household name with the case of Danielle Sampson reaching its record breaking conclusion, Newlin has been focused on the needs of the people of Orlando throughout his time as an attorney in the Florida city.
Dan Newlin worked with the family of Daniella Sampson to make sure the best possible outcome was found after she was left paralyzed and comatose following a shooting incident in 2012. 15 year old Danielle was traveling in the back of a minivan when she was hit with a stray bullet fired during a home invasion, the bullet remains lodged in Danielle’s brain and has left her able to communicate through blinking. Two years later Dan Newlin was able to persuade a court in Orange County that Danielle’s family deserved the $100 million damages award to ensure her medical bills were paid and she would be cared for throughout her life. Dan Newlin is a well known personal injury attorney in the state of Florida.
This is the latest case that Dan Newlin has led in his fight to achieve justice for all those who have been victims of negligence or accidents they were not to blame for. Newlin has also spent his career working to give something back to the community he has been working with since leaving a career as a firefighter and focusing on the legal field as his future. For Dan Newlin the need to give something back to the people of Orlando and now to his hometown of Chicago is the driving force of his career, which has seen him establish the Dan Newlin Miracle Project that aids those in need in the local community.
Adam Sender is the 46 year old founder of Exis Capital Management. He accumulated a small fortune in the hedge fund business which enabled him to pursue his dreams at a young age. In the early 1990’s he began investing his money in art and for the next 20 years grew the leading collection of contemporary art. Prices for these artists rose in the market in the 2000s and by 2007, Sender had recouped most of the $25 million he spent over those 20 years in the sale of only 40 pieces. He clearly became very brilliant, not only at knowing what to buy, but when to sell his art pieces.
Adam had the help of an art advisor, Todd Levin and several Chelsea dealers. However, Adam has an uncanny ability and intelligence of his own that has enabled him to make smart choices over and over again, each piece acquired progressing fluidly from one work to the next. It is a grand and impressive personal vision of 400 pieces by 139 artists. Says Sender,” I’m not a chaser. I’m a pursuer of great works by artists who have had long careers.”
He began making some changes when he divorced in 2014. He then sold Exis and began plans to sell off 400 works from an 800 piece collection over an 18 month period starting in May 2014. Sotheby’s prepared them for auction and estimated a value of $70-$80 million for such artists as John Baldessari, Urs Fischer, Dan Flavin, Martin Kippenberger, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince, Raymond Pettibon, Elizabeth Peyton, Charles Ray, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman and Rosemarie Trockel. Adam is quoted as saying.” I find myself embracing a Buddhist philosophy….All things must pass.” These auctions are still active and estimates remain hovering at the amount initially projected. Check out Adam Sender’s Facebook profile.
As of 2014 he made new purchases of the works of Frank Benson and Diana Al-Hadid. No doubt, he continues to move forward in his role of financial expert and genius art connoisseur. What will be added to this repertoire next?

Everyone has a craving for a specific food now and again. It’s one reason chocolate industry has thrived all these years, women crave chocolate. That monthly craving for chocolate is the body’s way of telling you it needs something, as are these other food cravings.
* Chocolate is rich in magnesium, a mineral vital for skin and hair health. The monthly menstrual cycle reduces the amount of magnesium in the body, that’s why the craving for chocolate arises. Carbonated beverages, alcohol and tea also deplete the body’s magnesium supply and cause chocolate cravings.
* A craving for ice may indicate you have an iron deficiency or are anemic. Both conditions cause inflammation and pain in the mouth, sucking on or eating ice relieves the pain.
* A chromium deficiency may cause you to crave sweets. Chromium works with insulin in the blood stream to help with the uptake of glucose. Sweets are rich in chromium and a change in blood sugar, which means a change in the chromium levels, causes a craving for something sweet.
* If you crave carbs your body is telling you it’s low in trytophan, an amino acids which helps to regulate mood by causing the brain to release serotonin.
* If your body is low in calcium it may signal you of the fact by causing you to have a craving for cheese.
A new study revealed by “The World Health Organization”, humorously titles their finding “Most types of cancer not due to ‘bad luck’. Not attempting to insult those impacted by this ravenous disease, but with intentions of disproving the statements of another scientific study, and the claims they make (link for other study found at http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2015/pdfs/pr231_E.pdf).
Bruce Karatz points out that, similar to the ADHD article made among the lesser known medical community, the overpowering authority trumps once more. This scientific analysis serves to prove the multitude of scientists that make these absurd claims.
