The Unique Sound of Norka Luque Dominates the Music Airwaves

There is always a Latin artist trying to break into the mainstream entertainment community. Over four decades ago it was the Miami Sound Machine featuring the vocals of Gloria Estefan (Gloria María Fajardo García). In 1999, the spotlight was on Ricky Martin. Other artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and Selena Gomez have also walked the path.

As of now, the spotlight is on Norka Martinez Luque. This Venezuelan singer was born in Caracas on February 7, 1986. She developed an interest in singing as a child, and her parents encouraged her to take piano, dance and voice training. She even took part in competitions such as the “The Golden Voice” and the “School Festival of Gaitas” – Venezuelan folk music contest.

After completing her early education, she moved to France to pursue higher education. She majored in Business Administration and graduated with diplomas in Fashion, Culinary Arts, and Marketing. During her time as a student, she stayed in touch with her musical ambition by joining a band, “Bad Moon Rising.” They would tour France performing in different gigs. Her time with the band enabled her to get a taste of the European music community.

Norka Luque’s big break

Norka’s big break came when she met the legendary producer Emilio Estefan. Emilio agreed to work with Norka after he heard her sing. Emilio together with Archie Pena, Hermanos Gaitán, and Luigi Giraldo produced Norka’s first album. This album quickly became a success.

“Como lo haces tú” was her first single from the album. The song became an instant hit in the Latin music community and Norka got a nomination for Best Pop Female Artist of the Year in the “Premios Lo Nuestro.” At the beginning of 2012, Norka premiered her second single “Milagro.”The song amusingly blended the Caribbean and Mediterranean flavors, making it a masterpiece.

“Milagro” was produced in three versions; salsa version, dance version and urban remixed version. The salsa version held the top position in Venezuela charts for 14 straight weeks. The dance version remixed by DJ Ralphi Rosario climbed to the 11th position on the Billboard Dance Club. The urban remixed version was a massive success and dominated the airwaves in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the United States. Her latest single is “Tomorrowland.” She is currently working in on its re-launch later this year.

Norka Luque is heading the right direction. She has a team of great producers and songwriters by her side. As of now, we can say that her success is almost a guarantee.

Securus Technologies: Investigator Pro 4.0

Securus Technologies recently announced the release of JLG Technologies‘ new “Investigator Pro 4.0 with searchable voice”. For those not familiar with the company, fret not. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies serve over 3,450 public safety, law enforcement and correctional facilities agencies. The company is said by some online sources to be the leading provider of criminal and civil justice tech solutions for corrections, investigation, monitoring and public safety.

The new Investigator Pro 4.0 software allows users to choose a recorded voice sample from either a caller or a prisoner’s phone call and utilize said sample to locate all other telephone calls that include that same voice. Additionally, the software aids in the discovery of various high interest, gang-related and other criminal activities through the identification of a called party via voice. The COO (chief operating officer) at JLG confirmed this. He told PRNewswire the program “also identifies other inmates that may have called that party,” adding that it “brings a new level of bio-metric sophistication” to the business and can even help “stop crime before it happens.”

The Investigator Pro 4.0’s searchable voice feature doesn’t just trace a PIN, an ID or a phone number. It allows users to put a tail on an individual’s voice. An investigator can also learn who all is speaking to one specific party, if the person was ever an incarcerated inmate and if any present day prisoners speaking to a released inmate as well.

This feature can also be used in conjunction with various other analytic features like voice identification confidence ratings and high-interest group tagging. Some online experts consider the Investigator Pro 4.0 software to be both a powerful and sophisticated weapon in crime prevention. They specifically praise the software for discovering criminal networks being run via various inmate telephone systems.

A Look Into The Growth And Establishment Of Don Ressler’s JustFab

Don Ressler has achieved a lot of success establishing and running startups in different areas of business. Most of his ideas have been based on online marketing and, therefore, all the businesses he has launched have used the internet as a marketing platform. His desire for success began more than a decade ago when he launched his first startup, FitnessHeaven.com. Ressler later sold the business in 2001 to Intermix Media to raise capital for his next idea.

In his second attempt, he joined hands with the COO of Intermix Adam Goldenberg and they formed Alena Media, which was offering marketing services to performing and ecommerce businesses. Their services earned millions and they opted to sell the business in 2005 to News Corp to raise capital for a bigger venture.

Understanding Don Ressler possessed the skills to succeed in the online performance advertising field, the duo came up with an idea to create a brand building enterprise that could be run autonomously. They gathered all former Alena members and convened for brainstorming, which led to the birth of Intelligent Beauty.

Intelligent Beauty began offering skincare and cosmetics products and two years after its launch, they established a weight loss system referred to as SENSA on matrixpartners.com. The two systems generated revenues to the tune of millions and in 2008, they got $43 million from Technology Crossovers Ventures to fund their expansion.

2010 was time to come up with additional systems under Intelligent Beauty, so Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg launched JustFab, an online retail subscription store.

About JustFab
JustFab, launched in March 2010, is an online store that operates a subscription system. The company has developed and acquired other businesses, becoming the biggest online subscription store in Europe and America. JustFab changed to TechStyle, and the company was in the process of expanding to reach wider markets.

This led them to seek funds amounting to $33 million from Matrix Partners in 2011. The company would later receive $76 million in 2012 from different venture capitals to fund expansion into other international markets like Canada, the UK and Germany.

In January 2013, the company moved on to acquire FabKids, which would operate separately and independently. FabKids is a retail subscription store just like JustFab and despite the similarity in names, the two were differently owned companies before the merger. JustFab also acquired other businesses in the same line like Fabletics, an online subscription retail that deals with athletic wear. Fabletics was launched by Kate Hudson in 2013 and she joined hands with Adam Goldenberg and Ressler during the formation of the company.
