Attorney Dan Newlin works hard to get his clients the results they deserve. Dan started his career in law at age 20 when he went to work for the New Chicago Indiana Police and Fire Department. From there he moved to Florida working for the Orange County Sheriff earning the rank of Sheriff’s Detective. Dan is still proudly serving as a reserve Deputy Sheriff.

After graduating from Florida State College of Law he started Newlin Law in Orlando. Here he has focused his practice on accidents, workers compensation, medical negligence, disability and employment law. In the fall of 2014 he expanded his practice beyond the state of Florida to open an office in Chicago to serve the people of Illinois. Now with two offices he has 18 experienced trial attorneys ready to get the results their clients need and deserve.

Newlin Law recently obtained a record 100 million dollar verdict for the family of Danielle Sampson. Danielle was only 15 years old when she was struck by a stray bullet while sitting in the back of her family’s mini-van. The man who fired the shot was a reputed gang member with a group of men who were fleeing the scene of a home invasion. The teen spent weeks in the hospital and in rehab. She remains paralyzed unable to communicate beyond blinking her eyes. Newlin said he hoped this record verdict sent a powerful message to criminals – that they will be held responsible for their actions.

Let these experienced trial attorneys review your case. You don’t pay unless you win.

It’s a widely known fact that the rich and famous spend money on authentic and exotic art, bringing home shiny pieces to place in their living rooms and proudly show off to their friends. But a few have taken on an a different art altogether of finding newer cheaper art pieces that are barely noticed at the time, and putting them back on the market when their value skyrockets due to the success of the artist or their legacy. Doing this takes the brain of a real wizard indeed, someone just like a sports coach that can see not just the potential of an athlete, but actually have a true vision of where he’ll be down the road. When it comes to recognizing artists with that same ability, businessman Adam Sender has proven with his much coveted art collection that his eyes for talent have been unmatched by anyone else.

Adam Sender has been an entrepreneur for a long time and currently owns a hedge fund managing company called Exis Capital. But some time ago, he started getting a keen interest in different art works. At first it was really nothing more than a hobby he did when he had time off. But gradually, his art collection started to build up and as more paintings came in, he began to consider selling them or displaying them at exhibits and as the appraisers scanned them over, he soon began discovering what a wealth he had amassed in art treasures. In fact, Sender once sold $19 million worth in art pieces at a 2006 auction. One of Sender’s tricks to the trade is that he is known to do searches for artists that are not totally brand new on the scene, but are still at that point where they are trying to get their work recognized. Adam Sender is a well known CEO and leader in his field.

Even though Sender does take all the precautions to protect his hidden treasures at home, he is known to loan them out to various museums, exhibits and educational institutions for various purposes. He holds originals from some of the most famous contemporary artists such as Cindy Sherman, Frank Benson, Keith Haring and Jenny Holzer. Some of the exhibitions he has visited or taken his collections to include Sotheby’s, an international art company that hosts auctions all over the world, and the Guggenheim Museum. He’s also hosted many personal exhibits in his Miami home providing lavish parties for his guests as well.

The late 20th-Century gave rise to the postmodernist movement that cast a skeptical eye on the enlightenment of the modern era. Many writers embraced the fragmented perspectives and unreliable narrators that now mark the literary period after WWII. Among this rich literary heritage are some of Brazil’s greatest writers like Clarice Lispector, Graciliano Ramos de Oliveir, and João Guimarães Rosa.

Clarice Lispector has been heralded the greatest Jewish writer since Franz Kafka. Although largely ignored by publishers during her time (no doubt due to her political stand against the Brazilian dictatorship), Lispector’s work is now renowned for its female characters who struggle with the idea of a woman’s proper role in society, her duty to her husband and children, and the quiet despair of second class citizenship. Her feminine ideology has been compared to Virgina Woolf, although Lispector objected to the likeness. As a fashion icon, Lispector was a glamorous intellectual who both represented the era and challenged it.

Another postmodern writer, Graciliano Ramos de Oliveir, is best known for his depiction of the poverty-stricken residents of Brazil. In his novel Vidas Secas (Barren Lives), Ramos uses a cyclical novel structure to underscore the never-ending hardships of poverty. As one reads the story of a struggling family of five, it is possible to read the last chapter and then return to the first chapter once again, emphasizing the futility of the struggle.

Finally, João Guimarães Rosa is consider one of the greatest Brazilian novelists of the 20th Century. His novel Grande Sertão: Veredas (The Devil to Pay in The Backlands) is heralded as the Brazilian Ulysses, the novel chronicles the life of a mercenary named Ribaldo. With over 600 pages of non-linear narrative, this novel represents fragmented perspectives and unreliable narration on an epic scale. Although widely unknown among English-speaking audiences, the novel was highly influential in Portuguese and Latin American countries.

One Brazilian writer, Jaime Garcia Dias credits Grande Sertão: Veredas as the inspiration for his literary career. Dias has published more than twenty novels including, Caiu do Céu (Fell From Heaven), Dois Caminhos (Two Ways), Canal, andDas Nuvens e Miúda (Clouds and Tiny) and has won numerous awards including the White Crane Award (2001) and the ABC Award of Brazilian Fiction (2015). That’s quite an influence from Jamie Garcia Dias for an often-overlooked piece of postmodern literature.

In our search for a broader perspective on post-modernism, academic and literary critics alike need to look beyond the traditional canon and explore the postmodern works of the Brazilian greats. Until then, we readers can take the lead and embrace the rich literary tradition of Brazil.
