Securus Technologies Does Good Deed In Aftermath of Dire Flooding

Securus Technologies of Dallas, TX has been serving the North American correctional industry for around three decades. During that time, the company has developed a number of advanced and innovative services to help inmate communicate with friends, family, and counsel. The creation of “video visitation” programs are among the most welcome arrivals. Securus Technologies is likely most well-known for its phone services. Reliability and consistent performance in inmate phone call facilitation has helped Securus Technologies develop a fantastic name.

The name of Securus Technologies is going to soon shine even brighter as word gets out about the amazing charitable endeavor the company is getting involved with. Basically, the company will be giving free phone calls to prisoners serving time in Louisiana so they can check up on persons close to them who may have suffered mightily due to the recent Louisiana flood disaster.

PR Newswire discusses the particulars of the calls. Inmates are afforded one free call per day. The total dollar amount of free calls Securus Technologies intends to give is in the range of $300,000.

Louisiana was hit very hard by recent flooding. The interiors of many homes were outright destroyed. Being able to stay in touch with those affected by the flooding helps reduce a great deal of anxiety on the part of inmates limited in their ability to help.

Norka Luque, Her Passion is Music

Norka Martinez Luque: a new air of positivity that moves every individual to pursue their dreams. Her story is full of motivation and inspiration, where impossibility never exists. The Venezuelan lady is sweet, a dreamer that discovered her passion for music at a tender age and who has been clean towards her goals: bringing forth her music has a positive message full of hope.

As a child, and with unconditional support from her parents, she began attending music lessons with piano, voice practices, flamenco and ballet, all while pursuing her normal elementary education.

Norka went to France after finishing high school and pursued a degree in Culinary Arts, Fashion, and Marketing, it was in France, that she got the opportunity to be part of a musical band. This helped her stay focused and constantly connected with her dreams of becoming a singer. However, it was just four years ago, when the renowned musical producer Emilio Estefan showed interest in her work and opened the door to the long-life dream of becoming a professional music singer. This was a very rare opportunity that many talented artists miss. Norka feels so blessed and privileged that Emilio liked her music and gave her the chance to become what she is today. Working with him has been a miracle in her life. Every day she spent time working with him she gained so much and learned something new. His faith and conviction in her are what mattered most. She has always believed that she will make the world a better place through her music. She has also realized that being alive is a privilege in itself.

Under the direction of the well-known music producer Emilio Estefan, a great team of producers composed of Archie Pena, Luigi Giraldo, Hermano Gaitan and many others played a very crucial part in the production of the song Milagro, which, together with El Cata, Norka is currently promoting. This song has been a hit in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the United States. The song is now one of the favorite songs in the Latin Music Billboard. The song is a pure blend of reggae, rock, pop, and Caribbean sounds that are combined with a very powerful message.

Norka believes that it is the sole duty of artists to bring a positive message to their fans in their musical lyrics because the songs arouse the deepest of emotions.

Thor Halvorssen Puts Himself On The Line In The Name Of Human Rights

The founder of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen is not a human rights activist in the way we all generally imagine them to be; instead, Thor Halvorssen looks to bring an energetic and positive image to the activism community he has spent the majority of his adult life working in. The Hollywood film producer has used the skills he has developed over the course of his adult life in a bid to bring attention to human rights issues. Halvorssen has gone so far as to place his body on the line during a trip to interview a political prisoner in Vietnam that brought him to the attention of local authorities.

In his work with the Human Rights Foundation Thor Halvorssen has also looked to create a number of contacts and connections with other activists who are fighting oppressive regimes from around the world. The latest President of the Human Rights Foundation is Gary Kasparov, the form chess champion turned political activist focused upon the issues in his native Russia.

Thor Halvorssen has also looked back to his own country of Venezuela and his adopted nation of the U.S. in a bid to use his power and influence to make sure every individual has the most information possible about the political situation in these countries. Halvorssen has publicized the problems facing the public in Venezuela as he feared the start of a major humanitarian crisis in the South American country that has been caused by economic and social mismanagement by the nations socialist government.

In the U.S. Thor Halvorssen has looked to provide his views to the mainstream media in a bid to explain his own views on the 2016 presidential election; the film producer has appeared on many different news media channels in the U.S. to explain the human rights issues candidates for President from both sides of the political spectrum face in their past.
