Every since I was a teen I’ve struggled with my weight. No matter what I tried, I could never lose weight. I tried many different diets, including Atkins, Mediterranean, South Beach and others too. I have tried various exercise programs, and I have even tried a combination of both diet and exercise. The most I had ever lost was five to ten pounds, and the weight kept coming back. My highest weight was 233 pounds, and it was ruining my life. I had breathing issues, digestion issues and more. I had talked to many doctors over the years, and they didn’t have any solutions for me but to tell me that I needed to lose weight, which I kept telling them I had tried. Finally, I spoke with a neighbor, who told me about a surgery that her sister had. The surgery was called Bariatric surgery. I didn’t understand fully what this was, except that it was for those who needed assistance in losing weight. The Bariatric surgery is what I needed, so I called up the facility where my neighbor said her sister had the surgery performed. When I called the Nobilis Health facility in Dallas, they schedule me for an appointment. I did have to wait about a week, but that was fine with me. At my appointment, I was asking a lot of questions that they didn’t seem to mind. The doctor met with me also, and he told me about the surgery in more detail. He explained that my particular case was just the type that they took into consideration for the surgery. After getting all of the information that he gave me and asking more questions, I opted to get the Bariatric surgery. The surgery was my best option for losing weight, especially since I had exhausted all other options. I was scared at the time of the surgery, but I knew this was the right choice for my life. The doctor did inform me that I’d still need to make dietary changes and exercise too, but this surgery would get me below the weight that I was stuck at, and then it would help me to lose more weight. When my surgery was over, I went home to recover. My weight before the surgery was 233 pounds, and after receiving my surgery I got down to 175 pounds. I was amazed at how fabulous I looked. I now watch what I eat every day, and I make organic and healthy meals too. I make sure to exercise for at least 45 minutes each day, five days a week. The surgery has helped me out tremendously. Now, three months after my surgery I weigh 162 pounds. My goal weight is 150 pounds. The Nobilis Health facility in Dallas has saved my life. I don’t have to be ashamed of how I look anymore, and I can feel great going out with my friends again too. I would recommend this particular Nobilis Health facility I saw on cantechletter to everyone that I know who needs this type of surgery.
Brian Bonar has been associated with several successful companies over the years.He has the unique ability to manage international companies so their stock appreciates in value, but the recent drop in stock prices around the world has Bonar and other CEO’s and investors scratching their heads. Stock prices in Germany dropped 5 percent, and stock prices in France and Spain almost lost 6 percent of their value. The fear index surged recently, and most investors are pointing their profit-losing fingers at China.
Bonar and other business people around the globe are blaming China for a number of reasons. The first reason is the Chinese government is trying to keep their economy strong by devaluating their currency, the yuan. If the yuan’s value drops, Chinese exports are cheaper. China depends on cheap exports. The second reason, according to Bonar and others is the Chinese stock market has been taking a beating for several weeks. China’s stocks dropped by 8.5 percent recently, and that was after the Chinese government tried to sure-up market prices.
George Osborne, Britain’s Finance Minister, agrees with Bonar and other investors. Osborne said China’s stock market is a real concern, but Osborne also said he didn’t think Europe would feel an immediate impact from the Chinese debacle even though global markets are experiencing heavy losses. Osborne thinks the Chinese government will take the necessary steps to stop the financial bloodbath.
Meanwhile, Chinese investors are experiencing the worst drop in stock prices since 2007. Chinese stocks that fell by more than 10 percent were suspended, and there were a lot of stocks that fell by that percentage or more.
Some investors believe the market was due for an adjustment. The big question on the minds of investors now is: will the Feds raise interest rates soon? That question is hard to answer, but if the stock market prices continue to drop, an interest rate hike could turn into a financial nightmare for consumers as well as investors.
Many successful hedge fund managers spend their riches on fancy cars, exotic homes and wild vacations. For Adam Sender, the founder of hedge fund Exis Capital Management, collecting contemporary art is his way of enjoying financial successes. For over 15 years Sender has not only become a top investment guru but also a well known art collector.
His first journey into art collecting can be traced back to the mid 1990s. With early success in the financial world came the means to buy pieces such as the 1981 “Black Sheets” work by Cindy Sherman. Sender considered that one of his first significant art purchases and it came with the hefty price tag of $100,000. His collections have been described as “rich” and “personal” ,which would explain why he didn’t buy every new up and coming star piece that became available on the market. Rather, Sender chose to have a discerning eye for artists who have had extensive and successful careers in art. Accomplished artists such as Dan Flavin, Keith Haring and Martin Kippenberger are among those in the Sender collection.
Sender has amassed such a large collection of fine art that he has been able to host his very own exhibitions. His “Home Alone” exhibit was held in one of his Miami, Florida homes during Art Basel Miami Beach. This exhibit featured 70 works from his collection that included pieces from Richard Prince, Rashid Johnson and Chris Ofili. Even his offices at Exis Capital contained some of his prized possessions. Works from Kara Walker, Ed Ruscha and John Currin were placed throughout his New York City workplace.
Last May, Sotheby’s began to auction some of the Sender collection. Approximately 400 works by 139 artists worth far more than what Sender originally invested in them will be up for sale to the highest bidder.

My art is personal to me. Because of this, I had no idea how to market my art because I have always made it simply for myself, and the love of creating art. It is very realistic, but also very bucolic. This is because I am from a very rural area, and many things are simply beautiful in area like this. For example, we are a hundred and fifty miles from any city. This is not easy because Texas has many cities, and I am situated between two of the largest cities in the country. These are Houston and Dallas. Combined they have double the amount of people of New York state. However, the stars seem like they can be easily touched. The area is also very ranch and farm laden, so there are many subjects for artists like me.
I have been painting for at least 35 years now and when a collector contacted me, it actually scared me. Next, I did not believe them. I finally accepted their call, and she wanted to see all of my art. It was like letting a stranger fondle my wife. Her next move was suspiring. She unrolled a canvas, looked at it, ran to her car and drove off. I literally thought that I had been hit by high-level art grifters. Because I had no basis for value in my mind of the price of my art, I was actually gratified that someone wanted my work enough to come to my home in their nice car and steal my work. However, she returned with a rather large check. The check was so large that I talked to my wife about selling the collection, and I actually had no right to not accept that money because we needed it. To my surprise, the check was for that one piece. She had it in her gallery a single day before someone paid that sum for my work.
Additionally, the check was minus her commission. I also did not realize that she had no idea that I had so many works, but she was happy. This is the effect that collectors have on the art business. As I researched this, I found an investor that was also a collector named Adam Sender of New York. He did for contemporary art what she had done for my life. Sender found these obscure underpriced, but really deftly produced contemporary art pieces. Simply collecting these pieces made their values rise greatly. However, when he sold this work all at once, the contemporary art world exploded in both interest and in value. Collectors are invaluable for the art world. They are almost as necessary as the artists because my work would have never been seen if it were not for my collector.
