Desiree Perez’s Relationship With Tidal

Business Partnership, Expansion

 

Tidal is the first online music service which was created for the purpose of providing high-fidelity music streaming. This means that it’s able to stream higher-quality versions of the same sound that you would normally listen to as compared with the lower-quality versions. Lower-quality music is more of a challenge and is a result of the expensive audio equipment which produces lower quality. Tidal music has also been expertly crafted by individuals whom are experienced in the audio field, called audio journalists. Tidal needs leadership to keep it afloat, so the addition of new leadership is designed to provide the backbone as the founders see the potential in the company despite all of the challenges which it has faced.

Tidal has recently courted Desiree Perez as a new leader of the firm. The company was founded by Jay Z, and Des Perez represents the new leadership of the company. The idea behind bringing her on is that she offers plenty of great business acumen that the company could benefit from. The company is trying to market itself as a competitor to the more popular streaming services such as Spotify, and offer better quality audio to these individuals. Additionally, there are rumors of a possible acquisition by Samsung. Samsung has talked with Jay Z regarding a buyout. The hope of a Samsung buyout is that it would enable Tidal to continue to grow its user base. These talks are between Desiree Perez and the leadership at Samsung as she is a key figure in the acquisition. In addition to Samsung, Google and Spotify are eyeballing Tidal as a potential acquisition target.

Desiree Perez has been a close associate to Jay Z for nearly 20 years. Her husband runs Roc Nation Sports, and she runs SC Enterprises. She is there building relationships with artists, and the hope is that she can help make Tidal a profitable company again. She also wants to see that Tidal is able to stand the test of time and be around for as long as possible. Jay Z trusts her wisdom and leadership as she provides the business acumen that a company like Tidal needs to stay afloat. This is a direct result of Tidal being an underdog. There have been multiple management changes in the company, but Jay Z is still motivated to keep the company around especially now that he has the assistance of Desiree Perez.

Norka Luque is Not Afraid to Pursue Her Dreams

Latin Music, Musicians

Millions of guys and girls post videos on YouTube. They want to be discovered and taken to new heights as singers. There are also lots of people that are signing up for shows like American Idol and The Voice because they want to be taken seriously as a singer.
Norka Luque did not choose any of these methods, but she has still managed to become an artist in her own right. She was discovered by Emilio Estefan, and she has been wowing crowds with voice and charming spirit.

She has become someone to watch because there is a Grammy-winning producer, Emilio Estefan, that is attached to her project. It could have been easy for Norka Luque to let music take a back sit in her life. Luque could have done something completely different. She already has degrees in other areas. Norka could do something else with her life right now because she had degrees in marketing and fashion. It was a choice that she made to leave the business world behind and pursue her solo career to the fullest.

It was when Norka was part of a band that she started to get some buzz from fans about her voice. She would eventually get discovered by someone like Estefan and this would be the start of a beautiful relationship. He had the producers. He had some writers. These were the things that she would need to make her sound come to life, but she had to have the desire. Emilio could not give her the desire. She had to have this for herself. It is evident that she does have the drive and desire because she has released a strong single like “Milagro.” She also hit the charts with “TomorrowLand.” It is her passion to move to the next level that makes people take notice of her.

Norka has even been presenting herself on social media. This is something that a lot of new stars fail to do. Luque, however, has continued to stay in touch with the fans. She has performed at Billboards parties and she has been on television to talk about her music. This is all a part of her ability to market herself. This shows that she was not afraid to dream and dream big. It shows that anyone can make it if they have a will that is strong enough to overshadow all the fears.

How Norka Luque Made It to the Top

Latin Music, Musicians

Norka Luque is an accomplished international musician who traces her roots to Venezuela. She was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and grew up in the Latino capital City. Her love and passion for music started at a tender age and she started participating in various singing competitions. Her passion convinced her parents to pay for extra voice practice, piano, flamenco, and ballet lessons. However, the lessons were on condition that she did not neglect her academic education.

Schooling in France

After high school, Norka travelled to France in pursuit of higher education. She took up an International Business degree. However, she continued singing and eventually joined a French band by the name Bad Moon Rising, Funk and Rock. She became the band’s soloist and appeared in many singing platforms allowing her to hone her performance and singing skills.

Return to the U.S.

Upon her graduation, Norka returned to the United States and took up further singing lessons at an art studio that also offered courses in culinary arts and fashion. Her luck soon changed when she met one of the most beloved and accomplished music producers in the U.S., Emilio Estefan Jr. In fact, their meeting was by chance because they met when Norka had gone to the studio for her lessons and Emilio was present.

Not one to waste a chance, she met Emilio and arranged to present some of her musical materials at the Crescent Moon Studios the next week. She impressed the producer and he agreed to work with her, but asked her to finish all her singing lessons.

International Music Career

Together, Emilio and Norka, worked on her song selections and produced several hit singles including “As you do,” “Miracle,” and “Tomorrowland.” Her songs have featured in several charts including the Record Report. Her song “Miracle” gained her international stardom status because of its powerful message of hope and amazing mixture of reggae and Caribbean sounds, with traces of Mediterranean beats.

Norka has said that working with Emilio Estefan was an amazing experience that allowed her to learn a lot from the producer. She revealed that Emilio was a team player who always listened to her input before making a decision.

Today, the accomplished musician is thankful to her parents and fans for their support. She continues to produce powerful music that inspires hope in her fans. Her own personal struggles with her weight and music have turned her into a musical phenomenon and a wonderful person.

Halvorssen and the Human Rights Foundation

Activism, Human Rights

Thor Halvorssen has is so committed the international human rights that he works nearly around the clock year round. Halvorssen is founder and president of the New York-based Human Rights Foundation, which he started in 2005. He is half Norwegian and half Venezuelan and descends from a long line of political movers and shakers on both sides. Two primary ideals that have remained important to almost every one of these people is human rights and individual liberty. Commitment to these things has also become very personal to Halvorssen: His father was tortured after exposing corruption in the Venezuelan government and his mother was shot at a human rights demonstration.
The incident with his mother and father are the biggest personal motivators for his drive for human rights, but his cousin is also unjustly imprisoned in Venezuela. Above all, Halvorssen has a commitment to help and deep love for all people. Halvorssen had appointed Vaclav Havel as chairman of Human Rights Foundation. After Havel died in 2011, he replaced him with Garry Kasparov. This has been a very hands on role both for Kasparov and Halvorssen. They have both endured many beatings and physical trials for the cause of human rights.

Thor Halvorssen has also been in some incredibly sticky situations and managed to get himself out of them. He has been involved and continues to be involved in some of the most biggest human rights infringements throughout the world. However, his biggest passion has always been opposition to left-wing Latin American dictators. He has been criticized for his defense of right-wing groups and his fight against left-wing politicians in an industry where the left-wing principle of tolerance is so important. Halvorssen does insist the he is a liberal, but a classical liberal.

But being right or left isn’t that important an issue to Halvorssen. He goes after human rights violations wherever they are found. Most of the politicians he has opposed just happened to be left wing. Halvorssen just guides the ship that is the Human Rights Foundation and its staff of 12 employees. But although they are smaller than other human rights organizations, they usually have bigger international projects.

Securus helping customers save money and time using the automated inmate forms and grievance application

Video Visitation App

Securus Technologies is a leading provider of criminal and civil justice technology solutions. The company recently announced how it is saving its customers time and money in real time only by implementing the Inmate Forms and Grievance application on ConnectUs. Russell Roberts, the Vice President of Strategy and Marketing for Securus, says that the company is committed to providing the latest technology and features for their customers. The company is modernizing their customers with the latest and most effective technologies, and an example of this is the Inmates Forms and Grievance application on ConnectUs.

 

The company has noted that most of the correctional facilities use paper forms for inmate requests such as medical, grievances, sign up forms and many others. The correctional officers have to spend time then distributing the forms and later on collect them, copy, file, archive, and respond to them. All of this has been eliminated by Securus. Customs forms for any request can be created easily and made available to the inmate. There is no printing involved such that even if you want to change a form, it will take a few minutes. According to Securus, they are processing and automating 13.8 forms a month per inmate. This is saving the correctional officers time and energy getting them to concentrate on more serious issues like safety and security of the facility.

 

This is beneficial to the inmates too because they can view the status of their forms or grievances and they can also appeal and accept them easily.

 

ConnectUs is the best feature-rich inmate platform that is on the market today. It allows inmates access to a set of unlimited applications that are designated and allowed by each correctional facility. This new platform allows inmates access to features that were not available before, and it also controls and governs the content that is available to the inmates and when it is available. The platform also allows inmates to communicate with other inmates more efficiently. This interface can be used in any country because it is available in many different languages

 

 

The Advantage of Having Content Syndicated

Tech News

If there is one thing that could work to the advantage of an online marketer when it comes to online reputation management, it is getting content syndicated. However,, this can prove to be a really tough act for one to do all by himself. It takes a lot of time to syndicate the content that is created. As a result, the syndication might be put off for other aspects of business that may be deemed more important. Therefore, it is a better idea to automate the syndication of content. Business runners already have a lot of other tasks to deal with.
There is another option besides hiring someone to syndicate content. There is the automated syndication software. There are websites and services that offer automatic syndication of content. One example of a service is IFTTT. It is also very easy to set up an account with IFTTT. All that needs to be done is to fill in the information like with other sites that require the user to sign up. Then every social media account that the user has is to be linked to the service. After that, all that needs to be done is for the person to create new content. Once the content is released, it is automatically sent to different platforms. This is very powerful when it comes to online reputation management as well.

Syndication of content is nothing new. For one thing, a lot of sites that accepted content would have some of the content syndicated because of good writing. There were other forms of syndication for other content. Either way, syndication has proven to be very helpful for online marketers that are trying to get their business off the ground. With syndication, one could also gain a high page rank for his content. As a result, any bad news that is released about the person or his company will be buried quickly in the search results.

Adam Goldenberg’s Success Story

Entrepreneurs

Adam Goldenberg’s rise to financial and business prominence is an uncommon one. From the young age of 13 he was motivated to make something of himself so he started bulletin board service online using the money from his Bar Mitzvah no less. Then through hard work and ingenuity he made that bulletin board service into a website for gamers. Adam Goldenberg called it Gamer’s Alliance. It was a unique website that catered well to the interests of its market and so it caught the eye of Intermix CEO Brett Brewer who purchased it from him. Brett Brewer was unaware that he was forming a relationship with a young genius but he soon found out. Adam Goldenberg was only 17 years old at the time of the acquisition.

The relationship between these two people would grow over time and Brewer promoted Adam Goldenberg to the position of Intermix’s COO. This made Goldenberg the youngest person to ever hold that title at a publicly traded company. His appointment proved to be wise. Before long, Intermix purchased the website Fitnessheaven.com which was founded by Don Ressler. They expanded their portfolio of web properties into the realm of eccommerce and advertising. The locus of the cutting edge online transactions was the Intermix held company Alena Media, and it was the most profitable one Intermix had. News Corp saw the massive potential of Alena Media’s business model and sought to acquire it for themselves. However, News Corp put Alena Media’s potential to waste and this frustrated Adam Goldenberg. Soon after the acquisition of the company he helped build from the ground up he left to start a new venture.

Goldenberg was confident in himself. He was one of the world’ foremost experts in building brands online so he decided to create an online empire centered around that with Don Ressler’s help. The resulting company was called Brand Ideas, which they would later rename Intelligent Beauty on vbprofiles.com. It was an innovative direct to consumer company. The first brand was DERMSTORE which focused on providing women with cosmetics and skincare products from the comfort of their own home. Not long after they also created SENSA an online weight loss system. Both companies were financial successes. They were doing well enough to attract the attention of the venture capital fund Technology Crossover Ventures which invest $43 million in them in 2008.

With the new funds they launched JustFab. The excitement around JustFab was so great that they received $33 million in funds from the VC fund Matrix Partners, and a further $76 million from Rho Ventures. JustFab also managed to attract the fashion celebrity Kimora Lee Simmons to be its President and Creative Director. This great success story was all brilliantly engineered by Adam Goldenberg.

The Legacy of Naomi Campbell

Fashion Industry

Born in May of 1970 and beginning her international success in 1987, Naomi Campbell is one of the last true supermodels. To date, she has quite an impressive resume including, but not limited to, Versace, YSL, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Burberry, and Chanel campaigns. She has been known as a role model for women of color, fighting discrimination and becoming the first black model to appear on the cover of Time Magazine as well as French and Russian Vogue. She was also the first British Black model to grace the cover of British Vogue, and the first black model on British Vogue since 1966. In 1989, Naomi appeared on the cover of American Vogue’s highly-regarded September issue. She appeared on the cover of American Vogue again in 1992 alongside several other well-known “supermodels” of the era for the magazine’s one-hundredth anniversary issue. Not surprisingly, Naomi also has a respectable list of acting credits to her name, which include the film “Ali G Indahouse” in 2002, the modeling competition reality TV show “The Face” in 2013, and some majorly popular TV shows in the 80’s and 90’s such as “Fresh Prince Of Bel Air” and “The Cosby Show.” She has also attempted to get her feet wet in other areas of the entertainment industry, but was met with little success. In 1994, Naomi Campbell attempted to write a novel entitled “Swan,” for which she used a ghost-writer named Caroline Upcher. Unfortunately, “Swan” was met with rather poor reviews upon it’s release. That same year, she also released an album entitled “Baby Woman,” which failed to reach US or British charts but was commercially successful only in Japan. Since then, after retiring from the catwalk, Naomi remains in demand doing what she does best as an actress and print model.
