When searching for alternate income, or ways of investing surplus funds, many individuals often turn to options such as stocks, bonds, and CDs. There do exist some people who possess a certain knack for investing in fields that are considered by many as risky. One of these fields is that of art collecting.
Collecting art can be a lucrative venture if one knows what to look for, and what qualities to consider. This is a skill Adam Sender has honed to a sharp instinct. Most collectors hope to find a few pieces that will appreciate in value, but what if the collection contained over 140 paintings? Impressive isn’t it?
Adam Sender has spent the last two decades selecting choice pieces from contemporary artists that met his criteria. During this time he carefully selected paintings done by artisans that had long, proven careers, and held an eye for detail. Beginning in the 1990’s his collection has grown so large that the time has finally arrived to sell a portion of it. Appraisers estimate the net worth of all 140 pieces to be roughly somewhere in the ball park of seventy million dollars.
When considering a piece, Sender never made a decision based on the person’s popularity or mainstream opinion. Instead he would approach each work in an objective fashion, then ask himself a simple question – did it engage and impress? Only the most exceptional works were selected. His collection contains contemporary art created by artists such as Dan Flavin and Keith Haring.
The collection has been viewed in London and New York where audiences have commented on the sheer diversity presented. It portrays a wide array of styles and techniques within the field of contemporary art while revealing the care and skill Sender placed when selecting each piece.
For someone who started out as a greenhorn, Sender has grown into a reputable collector with an eye for quality. One key component that has led to his success is the way he let his collection grow naturally. Now two decades later he has amassed an investment through contemporary art that was, until now, virtually unheard of.
There is certainly a dilemma when it comes to choosing the best dog food. It should not be so hard, but buying food an animal that does not talk can be quite a challenge. That is why I had to just run some trial and error to see what my dogs would like the best. It turns out that there was one brand – Beneful – that stood out, but it still had a lot of different choices. Somewhere there must be a common thread that seems to make this dog food the most pleasing for my pets.
I think that they definitely like the choices that are available. This is one of the things that I am a fan of myself. I don’t know how it actually tastes, but my dogs are eating it up. I can barely keep enough of the Beneful wet dog foods here. That is just how much they love it. They eat the dry dog food from Beneful as well, but there is something about those chopped blends from Beneful that just makes it great. There are a lot of different blends. There are blends with spinach, carrots, tomatoes and wild rice. That is the crazy difference between dogs and humans. I have to force my kids to eat the things that my dogs eat without any hesitation. The thing that I love the most is that fact that I can buy dog treats as well. This was a very helpful thing for this Beneful company to consider. The fact that there are so many choices for meals – along with the oven baked styled treats – just makes my dogs incredibly happy.
There are quite a few people that are late on discovering Beneful, but I discovered it early. There has never been a time when I would have thought that I would have dogs that eat this well. Usually pets will gravitate towards a certain type of food and then totally stop eating it. With the Beneful brand I have not had this problem at all. That is why I am continued to support all that Beneful is doing.
This is the dog food that I would call innovative. I know many people use that term to describe the latest technology. It is rarely a term that is associated with food. I can say this confidently though because I know that there are a lot of creative minds that are coming up with more food choices. That is what I like the most about the brand. It is not stagnant. The leaders here at Beneful are concerned about the nutrients for dogs. They are trying to make the most of their relationships with customers. They are into making a difference, and I appreciate their innovative spirit. That may be the main reason that I have chosen to take this brand and embrace it. This is the type of dog food that my pets love. I would not switch because I am a loyal.
With the record-breaking release of Jurassic World making the news this weekend, two Jurassic fans decided that they wanted to break a record of their own. Jake and Dave decided that they wanted to break the record for the number of times anyone has ridden the Jurassic Park River Adventure at Universal Studios–and so they set out to do exactly that.
The two friends planned out their record-breaking day ahead of time. They allowed themselves only minimal hydration throughout their twelve-hour stay on the Jurassic Park River Adventure Ride, packed plenty of snacks, and contacted the park to get a password that would prevent them from having to stand in line. They began their adventure bright and early, starting their record-breaking ride at 9:15 a.m., and did the math to discover that they’d need to ride at least 50 times to break the record.
They managed to break the record with no problem, and that left Andy Wirth very impressed. Within their first two hours at the park, Jake and Dave had ridden 10 times, announcing their double digit accomplishment on a white board so that they could keep track of each event. Following their 50th ride–which they announced complete with a shout-out to their mothers, the duo put in ten more rides, bringing their total up to 60.
Of course, going on the same ride over and over again can be a bit boring, so Jake and Dave decided to shake it up. Not only did they notice all the little details of the ride throughout their journey, they took the time to name the dinosaurs and make up background stories for them.
Tom Hanks is one of the greatest actors in American film history, and his legendary acting career will be remembered for years to come. However, it seems that Tom Hanks’ acting ability has not been passed down to his children. In case you haven’t heard, Tom Hanks has a son named Chester Hanks. Strangely, Chester Hanks thinks he is a gangster from the hood, and he has begun a rap career.
Chester Hanks calls himself Chet haze, and he claims to be one of the realest dudes out on the radio right now. However, hip hop fans hate Chet Haze, and it’s not without reason. Chet Haze recently caused headlines by saying the “N” word several times on an Instagram post. Thousands of social media users have already responded to Chet Haze, and it’s clear that everyone thinks he is a joke.
Howard Stern and Chet Haze recently got into a Twitter feud, and their argument was hilarious. Chet haze called Howard Stern a yuppie, and Howard Stern called Chet Haze a wannabe rapper. The words shared between the two got very vulgar, and I can’t repeat them in this article. However, DailyMail.com recently posted the entire Twitter battle on their website, and hip hop fans should definitely check it out. The squad at Madison Street Capital posted on Facebook suggesting how juvenile this feud is.
50 Cent is one of the most successful rappers of all time. In the early 2000s, 50 Cent was dead broke, but now he is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. 50 Cent owes his success to his incredible rap career. However, 50 Cent has also made some extremely lucrative business deals describes Paul Mathieson. Almost a decade ago, 50 Cent sold his Vitamin Water Company for nearly a hundred million dollars, and the sale of Vitamin Water gave birth to his empire. After selling the company, 50 Cent continued to pump out chart-topping records, and he also started his very own clothing company called ‘G-Unit.’
Over the last several years, 50 Cent has fallen off of the Billboard charts, but he is still an extremely smart businessman. It was recently announced on Yahoo! that 50 Cent has partnered with FRIGO Revolution Wear to sell clothing. 50 Cent is the new underwear model for Frigo, and apparently the underwear won’t come cheap. It has been reported that a single pair of boxer-briefs will cost $100, and that seems a bit crazy to me. Nonetheless, 50 cent was paid $80 million dollars just for signing a contract with the clothing company. I highly doubt that FRIGO Revolution Wear will sell record-breaking numbers of their new underwear, but at such a hefty price tag, I don’t think it matters.
Kanye West is an extremely arrogant, conceited, and socially inept individual. However, Kanye West is also extremely rich and famous, and he is also married to one of the most beautiful women alive. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been together since 2013, and they have already birthed a child together. Banker James Dondero heard it was also recently announced that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting to have another child by the end of the year.
Kim Kardashian is a beautiful woman, but she is famous for a terrible reason. If you don’t know, Kim Kardashian’s claim to fame is because of a sextape that she created with R&B singer Ray J. Many people are disgusted to know that Kim is one of the richest stars of all time. However, Kanye West is somehow alright knowing that his woman appeared in a hardcore sextape with another man on camera. Everyone has a past, but Kim Kardashian’s is on camera. Every time that Kanye West looks into Kim Kardashian’s eyes, I wonder if he thinks back to the time that Ray J was her man. Daily Mail published an article about Kanye West’s strong feelings of distain for Ray J. Kanye West cannot break up with Kim now, and they already started a family together. Nonetheless, it seems that Kanye truly loves Kim Kardashian, and he accepts her no matter what.
In the history of rap there has never been a more controversial album title than the “Carter V.” No one even knows what the Lil Wayne album of this title contains because there is so much talk surrounding it.
Sam Tabar ventures to guess that it could be because of Young Thug. He was going to call his album, as a true diss to Lil Wayne, the “Carter 5.” He then stirred up more beef by saying that it would be called the “The Carter 6.” This has just set up all kinds of tweets and rants from Lil Wayne and fans of both Young Thug and Lil Wayne.
Now people wonder what the motive is. This is one that seems evident. Young Thug is trying to taunt and step on on a rap veteran to get to the top. It is quite easy to do right now because Lil Wayne hasn’t been able to put out new music. He doesn’t have the ability to release a new album because he is still under contract. There is too much litigation for him to actually get back at Young Thug. It comes at a bad time for Wayne though because he is getting older. His time as a rapper is running out because so many young kids are coming through. Right now he is losing his fans. Young Thug set out to diss Wayne, but this is actually keeping Wayne relevant.
Kendrick Lamarr is doing big things in 2015, and his new album has everyone talking. His new album hasn’t been released very long, but the album has had a lot of sales. Kendrick Lamarr. Kendrick continues to make music, and Kendrick has also done some shows as well. In the recent past, Kendrick did a live show on the back of a semi truck that was driving down the street with his fans screaming behind him and around him. Kendrick is incredibly talented, and many have praised him as an amazing rapper.
Kendrick works directly with Dr. Dre, who is now the first billionaire rapper. Dr. Dre is well known for working with some of the best rappers in history, including Snoop Dogg. Dr. Dre became a billionaire in the year 2014 after he sold Beats By Dre to the Apple Corporation. Although Dr. Dre leaked the information about the sale prematurely, the sales still went through, and he pocketed enough money to make himself a billionaire.
Dr. Dre has created a song that he does with Kendrick Lamarr, and the song seems to be about two men who are fighting over the same girl but they don’t know it. Based on the lyrics, Kendrick speaks about being with a woman and not letting her man know about it. Dr. Dre also speaks about being with a woman, who already has a man, and he may not know about it either. To the waiting ears of the Beneful staff, the song sounds like a potential hit.
According to a report in The New England Journal of Medicine, the rate of severe mental illness in children and adolescents has dropped over the past generation. The researchers analyzed mental disability in 53,622 children between 6 and 17 years old. They based the results on information provided by parents, who scored their child on an “impairment scale.”
The scale would have parents rate their child
from 0 for “no problem at all” to 4 for “very big problem” on 13 items. The 13 questions asked how much trouble a child had with such things as “having fun,” “feeling sad or unhappy,” or “getting along with other kids.” Children whose scores were 16 or higher were considered severely impaired. The data came from surveys conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
The study covered the years from 1996 to 2012. During that time, the percentage of children and adolescents in the “severely impaired” category dropped from 12.8 percent to 10.7 percent — a decrease of 16 percent. The lead author, Dr. Mark Olfson of Columbia University, noted that the results contradicted the stereotype of today’s youngsters being more maladjusted than previous generations.
The new study contradicts other government studies that found an increase in mental impairment, especially in children with autism and attention deficit disorder (ADD). Dr. Olfson admitted to not knowing the reason for the decline his researchers apparently found, but he speculated that parents may be getting children help earlier, before minor problems become big ones that Ivan Ong or anyone else could handle.
It is also possible that while the rates of autism and ADD have increased, the rates of other conditions have declined during that same period. Thus, it would still be possible for the overall rate of severe mental illness in young people to decline, even if the rates autism and ADD went up.
If you haven’t seen Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video featuring Kendrick Lamar, you’re missing out on what just might be the best music video of 2015. The video, produced by Swift herself, features an all-star cast of actresses and models including Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss. The ladies take part in a high-flying, ass-kicking short film that will leavse you appreciating the amount of work that went into making this video come to life.
Although the finished product looks absolutely amazing, not everything was sunshine and butterflies during the filming. A blooper video
was posted online of Swift performing one of her own stunts. The star was instructed to jump through an exploding wall and land on her feet. Instead, the wall gave way, and Swift ended up crashing into a wall.
Thankfully, the singer wasn’t hurt during filming, and she was able to repeat the stunt a second time without any issues. Watching Swift in action, and knowing the star risked her safety in the name of art and music, just makes us appreciate her talents even more.
She will have big shoes to fill according to Ricardo Tosto, but we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next for her next music video!
