Mr Carvalho could have just held a conference call, but instead, he agreed to meet with the client personally at her office to discuss the case. The meeting went as easy as any other case for Carvalho. In addition to conversing, he had the sense of the entire situation. Cathy was able to get a verdict in her company’s favor a few months later. Carvalho notes that he meets with people from all over the world at his office. He explained, “The incredible service and affordable price at the firm is a great combination for clients from all walks of life”.

Considering that hourly rate could cost more, using fixed rate seems like a bargain. Bargain price doesn’t have to equate to compromise in service or outcome. Your lawyer like Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho will be able to accomplish a successful outcome for a very reasonable price.

Sender, Art Collector/Investor?

If you look up the word contemporary, it will reveal that the word means currently. However, it may go on to say that it is something current but also popular. It can also denote someone or something that has the same interests, advocacies and professions even. These people are considered contemporaries of one another. However, it is when this term is applied to art that it really becomes ambiguous, and I am sure when the contemporary art movement kicked off that it understood the ambiguity of the term, and that is one reason they utilized it to label their form of art. The form began in the late 1950’s. This era is also called the modern era, and it can be said that the relation to the term modern also played into the choosing of the term contemporary. However, the terms really have the same issues. They both denote modernity, but their forms are far from being modern today.

This brings us to the issue of whether or not current art is contemporary art, or is the art of that long gone time considered contemporary art still? In my opinion as an art teacher, the art of the late 1950’s through approximately the 1970’s whose artists and patrons considered it contemporary art is contemporary art. I have this argument with my students because they are too cool to label their movement, but continuously whine about the lack of cohesiveness in their peer group or the transcendent positive media that art movements get when the movements are labeled. Labels have many more positives than negatives. In fact, the only negative that I can find is that labels are not cool to these young artists. However, what they do not understand is that if you do not choose a label, a label will be given simply by the people that view, purchase and review the art.

An additional negative to being given a name instead of instituting one is that these connoisseurs and critics of the art are often giving these names to movements whose artists have long since been deceased. However, posthumous riches does not garner affection from these young artists either. The only advice that I can give to a fickle group such as this is to make sure their art is technically up to par. I have no patience for artist without talent that mask this fact by labeling their art abstract.

This brings to light the genius of contemporary art collector Adam Sender. Sender is an actually a genius investor, and this is proof. Sender quietly collected close to a thousand contemporary art pieces, and just like an investor, he brought them at a time at which he was able to garner the finest pieces in the movement, but at costs that were minimal compared to what he is selling them for. The genius is that his selling of the art consequently generated the interest to make these values not only realistic, but likely to rise.

Steps to Avoid Doxxing

Security threats are evolving online. The newest trend to cause worry is “doxxing” wherein one’s files (or documents, also known as docs thus “dox”) are found and then dumped on the internet for anyone to see, or worse, to use. The victim of this security breach is described as being “doxxed.”

Darius Fisher, the president and co-founder of Status Labs, has a few suggestions to stay ahead of those wrong doers. One of the best ways is to simply find out what information is already out there yourself right now. Google yourself, use Yahoo! or Bing while you’re at it, and take stock of how much information you can find and if there any easy fixes, take care of them right away. Make some profiles private or delete log-ins or accounts you don’t use any more.

Fisher says private information such as your Social Security number or financial records are not the only thing you have to be worried about. Other things that seem innocent can also be used against you if they can collect enough. Such small details as might be found on an online biography might be used to bluff one’s way past security questions. The overall amount of data available should be watched and curated.

Status Labs, a reputation management company, specializes in the online perceived reputation of its clients, and they are one of the top firms in the country. They recommend that all domain name registration be done through a proxy or anonymously, even paying if you have to do. Many registries have searchable databases, so don’t just leave information like your address available for thieves.

Fisher recommends making sure all your social media accounts have their privacy settings set as strongly as you can. If possible, don’t use any real information, your real friends will recognize your picture, or maybe even your dog if you change your online name. Segregate your “friends” into different lists if you want to have some information available to a select few that you know you can trust.

The last simple step is to just change your passwords. Making changes more frequently than they are required keeps you ahead of the curve in your own online security.

Fisher graduated from Vanderbilt University and worked as a political consultant and copywriter, before co-founding Status Labs. Fisher was recently included in PRWeek’s “Innovation 50” – a list honoring the best PR and digital communications professionals in 2015.
