Norka Martinez Luque is Venezuelan, and was born on February 7th, 1986 in Caracas. While growing up, her parents taught her how to play the piano, how to dance and educated her in academics. Once she graduated from high school, she went to France to study business. Norka Luque graduated with multiple degrees in fashion, marketing and the culinary arts. This is when she took an interest in music, and in the European community of music. Not realizing yet the drastic impact this would have on her life, she joined up with a band and began going on city tours.
This new involvement in music changed her life, because in 2008 it led her to work with Emilio Estefan Jr. He helped to guide her in many ways, one of the most well know being the creation of Milagro. This song was exotic, and was influenced by both the Caribbean and Mediterranean cultures. The message of this song was that it is possible to change, and in 2012 it did very well in the United States, Venezuela and Puerto Rico. The promotion of this song was by El Cata, although Emilio is the song’s producer. Many other very talented individuals had a part in helping to promote this song as well. Milagro became a favorite piece of music on the music charts. In 2012, Latino Magazine quoted Norka as saying she believed it the artist who is responsible for bringing positivity and hope into their songs. That it is the songs lyrics that tap into the fans emotions. Since her own life has been difficult, she believes in placing hope and strength inside of her fans. Her difficulties with struggles have had a major effect on her life. Her success has not come easily but with her beautiful voice, she has the ability to get to the top.
As new genres are discovered, the message they send to fans should not change. Send hope for those enmeshed in a crisis or the belief in miracles that can change lives. Norka of course is still singing, still putting out only the most positive of messages for her fans. Her most recent release is a single called Tommorrowland. Emilio Estefan Jr. is still there to encourage her as she grows and writes more new music.

Eric Pulier, who was sued by Computer Sciences Corporation, finally gets the chance to tell his side of the story. Accused of accepting a $25 million dollar bribe regarding his employees, his lawyers stated that no, these employees did not receive or accept any bribe. They were paid in advance for contracted work. The charitable group did so because they were following tax advice they had received.
This $25 million, as well as another $98 million is still under dispute. ServiceMesh, Pulier’s company, has been purchased by CSC in the amount of well over $260 million, and a lawsuit is now pending regarding the recovery of the $98 million. The stockholders at ServiceMesh have been offered a substantial bonus to bring in over $20 million before the closing of this acquisition. At the same time, bank employees have signed numerous contracts with ServiceMesh for several million dollars each. This exceeded the goal of $20 million, causing another $98 million to be paid out to the equity holders for ServiceMesh. Pulier himself received a bonus of $25.3 million.
CSC then accused Pulier of bribing two ServiceMesh employees of signing contracts that caused this excessive payment of $98 million. One of Pulier’s foundations paid $2.5 million to the employees. Although claiming innocence, they were arrested. Pulier then resigned although still emphatically stating he was innocent of these bribery charges.
The bank is now being sued by Pulier’s charity. This lawsuit states that the $2.5 million was not a bribe but an honest payment advanced to the employees for work they had been hired to do. It was for tax purposes that the payments were made in advance because tax exempt status did not have to be proven until later. It was further stated that the decision to pay these two employees was made by the CEO of the foundation and not by Pulier. Since the bank is arguing it’s suspicions when talking to the police, all $2.5 million is currently unattainable by the foundation. They want this money and damages of a currently unspecified amount back.
Pulier is not hiding, he is simply living with his family. The entire lawsuit may be the result of a misunderstanding. Pulier’s lawyers state it will all be taken care of in the courts.

Town Residential, one of the fastest growing luxury real estate service firms in New York City is set to open a new office in New York’s meatpacking district. The office will be the company’s 10th new agency opening since the company began business operations over three years ago. This office choice was intentionally done too. The opening brings with it an extensive number of extremely desirable residential neighborhoods that line the Hudson River. It also gives new homeowners easy access to the Whitney Museum, The Standard, HighLine Hotel and the Chelsea Market. The new office should make quite an impact on Town Residential’s business because the firm’s principals are positive that their brokers will take their clients along the impressive High Line to appointments.
Town Residential has taken the bold move of leasing the entire second floor of their new offices on W. 14th Street in a 15-year deal. In addition to the prime location, the new 7,100 square foot office also has exceptional amenities which include not only 16-foot ceilings but also access to a private deck on the roof of the three-story office space. None of this comes as a surprise to anyone, though, because the new offices are just an extension of the flair and mastery of Andrew Heiberger, Town Residential’s owner, and CEO. Heiberger has stated that Town Residential’s new offices on the Hudson will be the only brokerage office in New York with such a beautiful outdoor space for brokers to meet and work with clients.

This will increase Town Residential’s marketing base by including the West Village where Thomas and Ingram have concentrated their sales efforts. Andrew Heiberger also sees the entire west side of New York City growing into a continuous string of high-end neighborhoods with his new office right in the middle of them. He has also declared that the staff of their newest offices will cover all of the markets from the Hudson Yards to TriBeCa. In recent months Town Residential has opened other high profile locations including its new headquarters building at 33 Irving Place just east of Union Square in addition to offices in Greenwich Village at 530 LaGuardia Place.
Because of their aggressive moves since their opening, Town Residential, in just five years, has been able to seal its position as the foremost Luxury service firm in New York City. This has been done not only because of Town Residential’s specialization in luxury residential sales but also because of its team of highly talented and dedicated real estate professionals. Town Residential’s remarkable success is also because of its simple yet inclusive business plan, Their plan is dedicated to giving equal value and resources to not only new sales but also to the development of marketing and rentals. They also strive to be New York’s real estate leader in all three of these areas. They also recognize that each real estate transaction they engage in has a common thread and that common thread is the client. A client that wants exceptional customer service, transparency of information, neighborhood expertise, and professional guidance throughout the total sales process.

There has been much talk of various celebrities studying the ancient religious teachings known as Kabbalah, but how much do any of us really know about this ancient religious teaching that has become an integral part of life in the 21st century. One of the reasons the religion has become such a major part of modern life is the fact it can be followed by followers of any religious groups who can intertwine these teachings into their everyday lives.
One of the main groups that has worked hard to raise the awareness and visibility of the teachings of Kabbalah is the Kabbalah Center, which was established in 1985 by husband and wife team Philip and Karen Berg. The chance to learn more about these teachings is something that had often been difficult to do before the Kabbalah Center opened its doors to these amazing teachings on the nature of life and our place in the infinite; Rabbi’s would usually discourage any male under the age of 40 from exploring these teachings and would usually refuse to teach women about Kabbalah at any point in their lives.
The Kabbalah Center has removed these restrictions and looks to bring the happiness and sense of contentment each individual feels when they understand the teachings to the public around the world. Unlike traditional Kabbalah teachings an understanding of Hebrew is not needed for those entering the Kabbalah Center, which fits into the idea the Kabbalah Center is a supplement area to the traditional religious beliefs of any follower. One area taught by the Kabbalah Center is that of the Light that represents God in the lives of each person, but this is an essence of God and not a relationship with a representation of an individual being.
The Kabbalah Center is just one way the teachigns of Kabbalah can be explored in the 21st century, which is often referred to as the most open of all the options open to potential students. Traditional Jewish groups have opened up their teachings of this area of study in recent years to make sure each individual has the chance to follow their preferred method of study.

Austin, Texas is budding with upcoming designers, fresh faces, and hidden talent, that in 2010, captured the attention of the notable Wilhelmina Brown Talent and Modeling Agency during a runway show hosted in its honor. Since then, the agency has launched its headquarter in Austin and has gone on to enroll over 400 models and actors in various fields, including fashion, film, print, and more.
During the 2010 launch, which can be found on YouTube, Wilhelmina Brown’s then agent Justin Brown, credited Austin’s good designers and amazing upcoming people for the piqued interest in the area. At the time, Austin enjoyed what was coined as an impressionable fashion scene with the talent to match. According to Roman Young, a then Wilhelmina Brown talent scout, “There’s a rock-ability look here mixed in with a collegiate look with a sports flair with a music scene. It’s really cool” (1).
During the runway show, Linda Asaf, an Austin based designer of bridal, evening wear, and classic feminine ready-to-wear pieces, showcased her Summer Frost collection, a collection of fun, flirty, pieces in light silvers, whites, neutrals, and her favorite spring piece, which the designer described as a beautiful evening gown comprised of gray couture lace that the crowd went ga ga for.
The 2010 addition of The Brown Agency to the area signified the beginning of something huge for Austin, which was predicted by participants to only go up from there. And given the sure magnitude of careers that have been launched there, it’s safe to say that it did just that. Since 2010, The Brown Agency has been accredited with launching the careers of hundreds of models and actors in runway, fashion, film, print, commercials, television, voice-over, catalog, industrial videos, conventions, trade shows, corporate, and industrial events.
The Brown Agency, part of the world renowned Brown Agency Family, is a full-service modeling and commercial agency located in Austin. The agency came to Austin in the Spring of 2010, with a goal to establish unprecedented market standards that had not yet been realized in Austin. Since their launch, Austin models and talent have been working for some of the world’s top brands including Louis Vuitton, L’Oreal, Toyota, and more. The Brown Agency fashion models have graced the runway at New York Fashion Week, Austin Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, as well as other major fashion shows.
In 2015, Justin Brown, President of Wilhelmina Austin and former modeling and talent agent in Los Angeles and New York, merged with Heyman Talent-South, one of the region’s most successful acting talent agencies, and re-launched as The Brown Agency, combining the unique strengths and capabilities of two of the largest talent agencies in the area. Michael B. Bonnee, founder of Heyman Talent-South, now serves as the expert of theatrical division for The Brown Agency. The combination of the two companies provides clients with a greater portfolio of experienced talent and increased opportunities nationwide.
