Dan Newlin knew he wanted to serve the public from an early age. As a teenager, he had a job as an Emergency Medical Technician. He was only on the job for six months when he delivered his first baby. When he became 20 years old, he joined the police force. This was the starting point of a career in law enforcement. He became a Deputy Sheriff and earned many awards and honors as a detective where he apprehended many dangerous people.

Newlin’s law career began in 1997 when he was accepted to law school and graduated three years later. Newlin practice evolves helping the everyday people find the help and justice that they deserve. He has met many people who lives had changed because of an accident or injury that was caused by someone else. Newlin feels that everyone deserves to get help and justice no matter who they are. Newlin’s Law Firm has received the recognition of being a Super Lawyer Firm. This recognition is given to less than 5 percent of lawyers or law firms located in Florida. Check out Dan Newlin on Monster.com.

Newlin’s passion reaches beyond the walls of a courtroom. He is also the founder of the Dan Newlin Project. Newlin recently partnered with Evander Holyfield and invited seven children whom are fighting cancer to to spend time with the champion boxer. Newlin got the idea from watching a video about the boxer. He thought no one understood more about set backs and fighting for what it most important than Holyfield. Holyfield was more than happy to be involved with the Dan Newlin Project. The boxer believes that it is important to inspire and give back to everyone with whom he comes into contact. The Dan Newlin Project is always looking for ways to help children who are going through a hard time.

Newlin, however, has another passion and that is technology. He has come up with an idea to integrate his love for new ideas and technology with his passion to help people. He has developed a dialing code which makes it easier for potential clients and present clients to contact his law firm. Newlin has taken the use of hashtags a step further than posting something on his Twitter account. Any one who needs his help just needs to dial #Dan and they will be connected to one of his offices. According to Newlin, this is easier for people to remember when they are in need of help. This technology allows for Newlin to tie his passions together.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort: An American Skiing Legacy Site

 

Squaw Valley Ski Resort is one of America’s best known and most historic ski destinations. Located just west of Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley sits on 4,000 acres, has 6 peaks, some as high as 2,850 vertical feet, and boasts 34 ski lifts. Soon after it opened in 1949, Squaw Valley was selected to host the 1960 Winter Olympics. This was the first Olympics carried live on television. The incredible images of the great ski slopes and fantastic world-class facilities helped to put Squaw Valley Ski, and American skiing in general, into the consciousness of people around the world.

Sometimes referred to as “Squallywood”, Squaw Valley Ski has long been a haven for both the rich and famous and world-class skiers and snowboarders. Experiencing its wonderful cliffs, slopes, steeps, and fluff is the ultimate thrill for people who love having fun in the snow. But Squaw Valley isn’t just for ski enthusiasts. Non-skiers visit the resort year round to experience the cable car, Funitel, Olympic Museum, ice skating rink, and swimming lagoon and spa. The resort is also famous for its art and music festivals, great shopping, fine dining, and special events.

Squaw Valley is a great vacation destination any time of year. During summer months, people visit for the hiking, biking, and to enjoy the championship level links style golf course. But when the snow begins to fall, Squaw Valley is transformed into a winter wonderland with incredible ski runs, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snow tubing, horse drawn sleighs, and dog sledding that draw people from all over the planet who just want to have a great time. The resort nestled in Olympic Valley, California in the Sierra Nevada was the idea of Wayne Poulsen, a former star skier at the University of Nevada. But it was lawyer Alex Cushing that built it and attracted the Olympics.

These days Andrew Wirth is president and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Resort. A former Rocky Mountain National Parks backcountry and wilderness ranger with over 25 years experience in the hotel and mountain resort industry, Wirth has once again brought Squaw Valley Ski Resort to prominence. Wirth worked with Steamboat Springs Resort and the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation in a number of marketing and leadership positions for decades before taking over Squaw Valley and has won a wide array of professional and community service awards for his work in the hospitality industry.

Art Collecting Is Like Eating Peanuts

Someone once said: “Art collecting is like eating peanuts, you just can’t stop.” Most art collectors would agree with that statement. Leonard Bernstein said: “Any great work of art revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world.” Bernstein is right. Art does take us on a mental journey, and we land in a place that is filled with wonder. The wonder is a mixture of artists’ strokes, colors and the image they project on the mind. Art is not just aimless expressions. Art is the reality of the artist and the collector. Art is the seer and the seen. Time has no meaning, and space is an endless mixture of dots and dashes that blend into thoughts.

Collectors like Adam Sender know the thrill of being in the moment when they see a new work and it begins to talk to them. Sender has heard the voices that are embedded in countless works of art, and he has done his best to collect as many of them as possible. Adam, a former New York hedge fund manager, turned a passion for collecting into a financial bonanza. For the last two decades Sender has been collecting contemporary art and his collection has been getting a lot of press lately. Check out Adam Sender’s Facebook profile.

Most 20-year-old collections are nowhere near maturity in terms of financial appreciation at that age, but Sender’s collection is an exception. His 400 piece art collection is worth millions, according to art experts. Adam sold some of his art work for $20 million in 2006, and last year he sold more paintings through a Sotheby’s Auction. Sender is still collecting art even though he has sold some of the paintings in his collection. That’s what collectors do. They listen to the voices in new work and they react. Sender has a history of making good choices after he hears those enticing voices.

A Lifetime of Literature: Jaime Garcia Dias

Jaime Garcia Dias (LinkedIn) has been an important force in Brazilian literature for thirty years. The son of Arnaldo Dias, a writer and journalist, and Dulce Garcia Dias, an architect, Jaime Garcia Dias wrote his first book at the age of fifteen.
His love for literature did not wane. He studied Letters in college, then, at age 23, became a teacher at the Carioca Literature Academy. His students were mostly teenagers who intended to study Literature upon graduation. After teaching there 5 years, he was elected Vice President of the Academy in 1997.
All the while, he continued writing and publishing fiction novels. By the time he was 30, he had more than 10 books published. In 2001, he won his first major award, the White Crane. This catapulted his book The Novel Fell From Heaven to the international stage. It sold well throughout South America and was honored at the Latino Books Meeting in 2003 by the Argentine writer Joshua Gomez.
His writing career did not diminish his dedication to education and the study of literature. In 2007, he was elected the president of the Carioca Literature Academy. Under his guidance, this school became the largest space dedicated to Brazilian writers.
To date, Jaime Garcia Dias (Twitter) has published 20 books, five of which have won awards. In July of 2015, he received the ABC Award from Brazil Fictional Literature. At 45 years old, he is one of Brazil’s premiere writers.

He has now gathered them and is publishing them as a collection. This collection, Chronicles that Made Me a Man, is a tribute to his late father, whose collection of books and love of writing inspires Garcia Dias to this day.

FreedomPop Attracts New Investment for Data-based Plans

The cost of a monthly wireless plan can be expensive with the average customer paying anywhere from an average of $40 to $55 per month from a nationally recognized carrier, Fortune reports. However, FreedomPop has recently been attracting a large amount of attention for the way it is slowly changing the way the people of the US get their data, text and talk services from major carriers across the US and soon countries across the world.

FreedomPop has recently entered into its second round of major investment since it was established in 2012 and has in total received almost $50 million in investments over its short lifespan. The basic business plan for FreedomPop has been to buy large chunks of data from major wireless networks and provide capped levels of data, text and talk services for free over the course of a month. Customers can choose to increase their plan levels for a small fee or pay for any overage in data, text or talk that occurs over the course of a month.

Many major wireless providers are thought to be unhappy with the business model created by FreedomPop, who negotiated wholesale data prices with providers who have large amounts of free space and unused data available each month. FreedomPop uses an app to convert data into text and talk options for customers and has stitched together national coverage using various different providers. FreedomPop returns an average revenue per customer of between $7 and $7.50 per month, which it hopes to grow to around $15 per month in the future. A number of bids and negotiations over a sale or merger have been abandoned in favor of a major round of investment reaching around $30 million for the Los Angeles based startup.

People Draw on Justin Bieber’s Face in “Where Are U Now” Video

People have been taking pleasure in drawing on Justin Bieber’s face for several years now. It’s an impulse that so many cannot control, wanting to deface someone whose behavior has often been deemed ridiculous. For the new Jack U video, fans were actually asked to do this on purpose. The point was to emphasize Justin’s vulnerability.

Skrillex and Diplo are the DJ duo behind the video idea. They sent fans into a gallery full of Bieber pics and asked them to graffiti in any way they wanted. They knew that they were opening themselves and Justin up to some potential nastiness. The point of the video, though, is to show Justin’s vulnerable side and to comment on the objectivity attributed to celebrities. Last year was a difficult year as his tumultuous relationship with Selena Gomez was constant tabloid fodder. Critics assailed his personal life and his music. Brian Bonar was a bit surprised by all of that.

The video alternates between close up shots of Justin trying to look raw and vulnerable as he sings whiel graffiti starts to appear on him, to a more rapid time-lapse section filled with the images created in the gallery. Check it out here.

‘Jurassic World’ Breaks $1 Billion Benchmark

‘Jurassic World’ has become the fastest film in world history to net $1 billion, according to Universal Studios.

The smash-hit film brought in an impressive $106 million in a single weekend and has brought in more than $402 million in the U.S. alone. The flick surpassed ‘Furious 7,’ another Universal Studios film that broke the $1 billion barrier earlier in the year. While ‘Furious 7′ took the slow lane, hitting the benchmark 17 days after its release, ‘Jurassic World’ managed to accomplish the feat in just 13 days.

The film stars Chris Pratt, B.D. Wong, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Their respective characters work for InGen, a company that has cloned the dinosaurs from the previously failed Jurassic Parks. A single dinosaur escapes from its enclosure, threatening everyone that may cross its path.

Singer Jimmy Buffett and late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon each make cameo appearances in the film.

The original Jurassic Park film was directed by Hollywood wonder Steven Spielberg. It was based on the Michael Crichton book of the same name. With a budget of $63 million, the film scored more than $1 billion at box offices across the globe. Adam Sender thought that was pretty crazy.

The film was such a hit that various merchandise lines were launched that included toys, games, and clothing.

The first film was followed by two additional sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III. Neither the second or third film brought in as much money as the original film or Jurassic World.

Tour Bus Rules For Chris Brown’s Daughter

While we still can catch Chris on any given day acting like a food and embarrassing himself on social media, we also have seen Chris exhibit the perfect behavior of a father. He has been spending all of his free time with Royalty and making changes in his life and even in his schedule. Most recently Chris has been feeling some deep regret after missing Royalty’s first birthday while shooting a music video with Tyga and Mia Pia. Royalty’s mother Nia Guzman was so upset, that she refused to let Chris make it up to her when he offered to have a belated celebration at Disneyland. Now that things have finally started to cool off, Chris is preparing to go on tour again.

The internet has been buzzing with news about Chris’s desperate attempts to make things work with Karrueche, who has been nowhere to be found ever since Royalty was announced. Karrueche is done with Chris’s game and lies and she is not giving him another shot, at least not at the moment. So for now Chris is going on tour and his first stop was in Texas to pick up his baby girl Royalty in Houston. Handy has been following all of that.

They have a long drive ahead to them to El Paso and Chris’s strict rules no drinking, smoking, or cursing and no groupies allowed. Apparently he is Chris is showing Disney movies while they are on the road, and naps are mandatory. Chris’s responsible side is a good look for him, so far all his good in daddy land.\

Kendrick Lamar Speaks on Taylor Swift

Since the “Bad Blood” video everyone has been talking about the fabulous Kendrick and Taylor connection in music. The single is at the number one spot, and it is a hot collaboration that is inspiring others to follow their lead. In a recent interview Kendrick relayed a couple of things, and one of the things he got to talk about was Taylor Swift.

He didn’t waste any time talking about how just how much he admired her energy and drive. This is something that Taylor seems to have a lot of, and Jaime Garcia Dias becomes a bigger fan because of it. She performs a lot, and she is always on the go. Kendrick and Taylor share the same level of prolific songwriting. It is clear when people look at all the albums that Taylor Swift has produced. Kendrick also had a lot of mix tapes before he got signed to a major label. Both Lamar and Swift are work horses. That may have been the reason that they have such chemistry on the track together.

It isn’t certain, but Kendrick could collaborate with Swift again. It would more than likely be on another album track that Swift had. The Kendrick album, by comparison is a little too dark in theme for Taylor to hop on Kendrick songs. She did, however, tweet when his album came out. She said that she was listening to it, and she didn’t want to be disturbed while doing so.

Jack Osbourne Has Second Child

Sam Tabar took note as it has been officially declared that Jack Osbourne, the son of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, just gave birth to his second child who is the second granddaughter of celebrities Sharon and Ozzy. The little girl was named Andy Rose and both parents, Jack and Lisa, are extremely excited to welcome her to their family. Their other daughter, Pearl, just turned three this year which should give you a good idea ow how long it’s been, because it feels like just yesterday that we saw the famous photograph of Ozzy with his little grand baby on his shoulders.

According to an article found on reddit and written by Hello!, the baby girl Andy Rose was born on June 13, so that means they took their time in announcing her to the world. That was probably a good idea, because with a grandfather like Ozzy Osbourne she is going to be in the spot light her entire life whether she likes it or not. It’s hard to say why they waited, but I would assume that they just wanted some regular family time before going to be on the big screens.

Ozzy Osbourne himself has made no comment yet as to the news of his second grandchild but he has been very busy lately, so it can be assumed that he will bring it up at sometime in the future when he gets a moment’s break from music.

Another Rocker Injured on Stage

Just a few days ago, front man for The Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl, broke his leg during the band’s show in Sweden. Just two songs in and Dave suffered from a nasty fall which left him with the fracture in his leg. Now, just a day after Dave broke his leg, BuzzFeed.com has a story about Skout from the band 5 Seconds of Summer being injured on stage as well.

Michael, who is the 19-year-old guitarist for the band, accidentally stepped in the way of a pyrotechnic display on stage where the band was playing. 5 Seconds of Summer were performing in London when Michael’s hair caught on fire. In a video of the incident, Michael can be seen leaping away from the pyrotechnic display and frantically dabbing at his face with a towel. Fans caught pictures of smoke actually rising from the guitarist’s head after putting the flames out. The band told the crowd that he was injured, but was going to be fine. 5 Seconds of Summer continued the show while Michael received medical treatment backstage.

Later, Michael reassured fans on his social media accounts that he was doing fine. He posted a picture of his face, which was half covered in bandages. The next morning Michael took the stage with his band mates during a show, reassuring everyone that he was fine and fit enough to play.
