Preceding the Week Art Basel (the most important art event in the art world).
MEX / Art an exhibition created by Be Art Gallery. The main focus is to promote contemporary Mexican art. The idea is to show the enormous potential that Mexican artists have.
Bringing together Miami residents and visitors during art week, Mex / Art would share "the stage" with other art fairs such as Art Miami, Context and Art Basel, among others.

Mex / Art would be the platform that represents Mexico in the most important art season of the year, with visitors coming from all over the world, we want to give them a new and new exhibition unlike any other art fair.

With the participation of several Mexican artists, many of them had never participated in any event in Miami, such as Jesus Lima, who told us that he was "very honored even though he was a young artist with a little more than 2 years, working with art.

Already the artist Mariel Garcia, likes to use the wood as base for its works.

Artist Neon Caron had the audacity to paint a mural wall live.

The Artist, Romero Britto icon of  Brazilian art, was guest of honor, and attended the opening ceremony.

5 Best Practices for Setting
Measurable Social Media Goals for 2018
A strong social media strategy is a must for businesses today. A survey of CMO's revealed that marketers expect to spend 20% of their budgets on social media in the next five years. However, almost 50% of these marketers struggle to measure and show the impact of social on their business.
With all this focus on spending, setting measurable goals and executing on them becomes a vital part of a marketing organization’s function. Today’s monitoring and analytics tools make it possible to demonstrate success through social channels. 
Sysomos pulled together five practical tips that will guide you in creating and executing on measurable, actionable and meaningful social media goals that define success in your own organization.
Click here for 5 Tips for Setting Measurable Social Goals: http://bit.ly/MeasurableSM
Defining success in social media participation begins with appropriate goal-setting, backed by benchmarking, tracking, analysis and reporting. However, not all results generated through social media can or should be measured in monetary terms. Improvements to qualitative metrics such as awareness, reach and sentiment are equally valid outcomes. Every organization must determine the applicable metrics that move it closer to realizing its goals.
Are you dreading your end-of-year social media report?  Creating annual reports is a necessary evil so why not have Sysomos do the work for you.  Gain insights into trends and identify areas with high improvement potential so you can start the year strong - all without lifting a finger.

Na semana passada estava na pauta para ser votado o PLS 612/2011, casamento homoafetivo, cuja sessão caiu por falta de quórum. Foi feito um trabalho grande para que senadores contrários à matéria abandonassem o Plenário para impedir a votação.
Precisamos mobilizar a sociedade para que entre em contato com os senadores que estão indecisos, para que votem contra o PLS 612/2011.
http://www.citizengo.org/pt-br/fm/128606-peca-aos-senadores-para-rejeitarem-o-pls-6122011
Devido tratar-se de matéria polêmica, muitos parlamentares tem receio de se posicionar contra ou a favor temendo a repercussão diante do eleitorado.
Esta a razão principal por que deve ser rejeitada a matéria:
O Senado deve rejeitá-la porque este PLS – projeto de lei do Senado, de iniciativa da Senadora Marta Suplicy - padece de um vício de origem. Ele é inconstitucional, ilegal e ratifica um erro cometido pelo STF no julgamento da Arguição de Descumprimento de Preceito Fundamental 132 (ADPF 132) e da Ação Direta de Inconstitucionalidade 4277 (ADI 4277). 
Na época, a Suprema Corte afirmou que o artigo 1723 do Código Civil (que repete quase literalmente o artigo 226 § 3º da Constituição Federal), quando diz “é reconhecida como entidade familiar a união estável entre o homem e a mulher”, deve ser (re)interpretado assim: “é reconhecida como entidade familiar a união estável [por exemplo] entre o homem e a mulher [mas sem excluir a união de duas pessoas do mesmo sexo]”.
Assim, o STF já criou uma nova entidade familiar, à revelia da Constituição, constituída pela “união estável” de homossexuais, com direito à conversão em casamento. Então, diz-se, o mal já está feito e não resta ao Senado e à Câmara outra atitude senão a de modificar o Código Civil a fim de curvar-se de maneira subserviente à absurda decisão dos onze ministros do Supremo.
Mas isso é falso! É possível reagir ao Supremo
O Congresso, ao contrário, deve lutar por manter sua competência que está sendo usurpada pelo STF. Os ministros do STF devem guardar a Constituição Federal, e não violá-la como aconteceu neste caso. Tampouco receberam do povo este poder. Mas, os Congressistas sim.
Já em 2011, o jurista Ives Gandra da Silva Martins havia proposto uma solução para esse desmando da Suprema Corte:
Se o Congresso Nacional tivesse coragem, poderia anular tal decisão, baseado no artigo 49, inciso XI, da CF, que lhe permite sustar qualquer invasão de seus poderes por outro poder,  para garantir-se nas funções usurpadas.
De fato, diz a Constituição Federal que “é da competência exclusiva do Congresso Nacional zelar pela preservação de sua competência legislativa em face da atribuição normativa dos outros Poderes” (art. 49, XI, CF).
Quando o Executivo invadir a competência do Congresso, cabe a este “sustar os atos normativos do Poder Executivo que exorbitem do poder regulamentar ou dos limites de delegação legislativa” (art. 49, V, CF), o que se faz por um decreto legislativo.
Por isso, não se trata propriamente de uma discussão sobre o "casamento homoafetivo", mas sobre os verdadeiros limites da ação do STF. Se aceitarmos a ratificação dessa decisão do STF pelo Senado, teremos de aceitar outras decisões sem que possamos fazer nada.
Assine a petição para enviar um e-mail aos senadores.
