DAVIS MALM SPONSORS BOSTON MODERN ORCHESTRA PROJECT CONCERT FOUR SAINTS IN THREE ACTS

On November 16, Davis Malm was pleased to sponsor the Boston Modern Orchestra Project’s 18th season opener of Virgil Thomson’s innovative opera Four Saints in Three Acts at Jordan Hall. Led by Gil Rose, this unconventional opera is a collection of vignettes which feature two legendary Spanish Saints, the mystic Teresa of Avila and former mercenary Ignatius of Loyola, as well as their colleagues. Set to an imaginative, fluid libretto by Gertrude Stein, Thomson’s work notably defies many traditional aspects of opera. In 1934, it made a groundbreaking debut on Broadway and was the longest-running opera to that time.

McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies Advisory: This Week in Washington — November 15, 2013

President Obama has been adamant, even in the face of growing bipartisan anger, that he would not make significant changes to the Affordable Care Act. This week, facing the possibility of bipartisan action in both chambers, President Obama reversed course and announced changes that will allow individuals to keep their health insurance plans—even if they don’t meet the requirements of the new healthcare law.

How to Ensure Compliance under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act

The FCC has changed its rules to require “prior express written consent” in order to auto-send commercial calls or texts. Failure to comply can open violators up to private lawsuits, and to damages awards of up to $1,500 per violation.  So what should be done to avoid pricey violations?

First, there needs to be written before commercial calls or texts are sent. While this rule revision was primarily meant to address robocalls, the interaction of this priority requirement with the need for “writing” means that it will have a special impact on commercial texts.  Notably, advertisers cannot send messages to consumer numbers pulled straight from interactions that begin offline (for example, from a responses to an on-TV exhortation to text in to get a coupon code).  A consumer’s consent and opt-in cannot be implied from their response to such an ad because it does not satisfy the new rule’s written requirements.
