Founded in 2011, the company has received numerous consumer complaints and praises in equal measure. However, the company’s modality of dealing with the complaints has enabled it to operate as a going concern. One of the complaints is that customers’ enquiries were made via phone but they were not getting adequate feedback. To this end, White Shark Media collaborated with Marchex to provide clients with call tracking services. These services were provided free of any charges. Every consumer that signed up had to subscribe to this service.

Some of the clients posited that they were unable to track the performance of Adwords. White Shark media knows that part of client’s success with Adwords is being able to track performances happening on their Adwords account.

According to their Twitter profile, White Shark Media started an in-house process where conversion tracking, Google Analytics and call tracking services were provided free of any charges. Through these services, clients are able to track their results besides optimizing their Adwords campaign in order to get better performances.  Read more:  White Shark Media – Google+

The company received genuine complaints from customers that they did not like Adword campaigns created for them. Towards the end of 2012, the company started a new process for new clients.

A newly created Adwords account is used to ensure that they start from scratch, especially when developing new Adwords campaigns. The entity provides clients with the opportunity of working with their own accounts if they have a campaign that previously performed well.

Most clients posited that they the contact persons assigned to them were not conversant with their needs. This way, White Shark Media jumped into action and ensured that each senior SEM consultant followed customers through the entire process of signing up until the penultimate optimization stage. These consultants are not part of the contract, thus they are not in clients’ lifecycle with the company. However, they avail themselves for questions.

ClassDojo’s an Unorthodox Startup, And Teachers Love It July 26, 2016

It’s as if it were a story straight out of the movies. After just a week of partnership, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don started reaching out to teachers across California about their new business venture designed specifically for schools. With just days to go on Sam’s visa, they zeroed in on the biggest complication teachers encounter on a daily basis.

Years after their partnership began, Sam and Liam have turned ClassDojo into a household name, in use in more than two-thirds of schools across the United States and 180 other countries. Available through Apple’s App Store and Google Play, teachers can use this communication platform like most social media services, connecting them to parents who can learn about their child’s scholastic development through messages, pictures and videos passed along by the teacher.

While this platform may sound simple in what it offers, ClassDojo insists that connecting home and school has transformed the teaching experience for the better. With it, teachers can really make parents feel more involved in what goes on with students on a daily basis, “liking” updates that show off how well they’re advancing in that environment.

Parents are also allowed a bit of private communication with teachers with private messages that allow for more detailed conversations about the behavior of their children or places where they are in need of support in order to keep up with the rest of the class.

This not only does away with the need for semi-annual parent-teacher meetings where those two parties may exchange information about a student over a handful of minutes, but ClassDojo is single-handedly changing the atmosphere in classrooms by introducing unprecedented levels of collaboration that foster support for children at school and at home.

But ClassDojo is not without controversy. The platform has an application for behavioral tracking, which grades a student’s conduct with a number that suggests either behavior worthy of praise or one in need of correction. Yet ClassDojo continues to refine its platform and retain its place in the eyes of school districts everywhere.

Investors seem to be aware of that unique position ClassDojo has carved out for itself and are climbing over one another to hand out much needed funding for expansion. At the end of 2015, ClassDojo managed to raise $21 million on top of the $8.5 million from a previous round of funding in 2013.

ClassDojo is a communication platform that connects parents and teachers in order to exchange information about a student’s scholastic performance and conduct.

ClassDojo has been released in more than 180 countries, crossing cultural borders that make it possible to revolutionize the institution of schools through effective technology.

Venezuelan pop star Norka Luque goes worldwide with Tommorowland July 22, 2016

Venezuelan musical artist Norka Luque feels ready to take worldwide audiences by storm today with her latest single “Tomorrowland.” Well known in her native country, the Caracas-born pop star may surprise American audiences, not just with her sound, but her attitude – purely positive.

LatinOL.com describes her fusion of pop, reggae, and rock ‘n’ roll as “fresh” and “modern.” Her 2012 dance hit “Milagro” sat at number one on the Venezuelan charts for 14 weeks. The English language version, “Miracle,” remixed by DJ Ralphi Rosario, reached 11 on the Billboard dance chart. Luque has worked from the start of her professional career with producer Emilio Estefan, best known to American audiences for Miami Sound Machine and his work with spouse, singer Gloria Estefan.

Although much of Luque’s music resembles Gloria Estefan’s in some ways, her positive pop leans most toward dance. But the MTV generation shouldn’t expect J Lo styled dance videos. Although she studied ballet and flamenco her videos showcase little dance. The performer prefers storytelling videos that showcase happiness and a lust for life.

“We as artists have the great responsibility of bringing a positive message to our fans because the lyrics in our songs transport them to the deepest levels of their emotions. Both, societal and musical evolution go hand in hand,” she told Latino Show Magazine. “New rhythms and genres are born, but the essence of the message that we want to transmit to people should never change. With the song Milagro, I want to send a message of hope to those who are overwhelmed by a personal crisis, like the one that I went through, and who hope for a miracle to change their lives. I am the result of several situations which have allowed me to value life even more and to come to the realization that my destiny is music, the medium by which I want to transmit love.”

Spanish-speaking audiences already love Norka Luque, a fact supported by her 2011 nomination for Female Pop Artist of the Year by “Premios Lo Nuestro” (a Univision produced music awards show). In 2016, she’s ready to share her music and love with the world.

Why Thor Halvorssen is a Key Figure in the Human Rights Movement July 21, 2016

If his incessant late night emails and encoded Wickr messages are anything to go by, then Thor Halvorssen is not your average human rights defender. Thor Halvorssen serves as the president of New York based lobby group, the Human Rights Foundation (HRF). Since launching the organization in 2005, the 39 year old half-Norwegian, half-Venezuelan has created a name for himself in the human rights movement.

During the Second World War, Thor’s grandfather served as the Norwegian king’s representative in Venezuela. He played a key role in diverting Norwegian merchant ships to Venezuelan sea ports after Norway was invaded by Germany. Thor’s father on the other hand played a crucial role in helping liberate Latin American countries from Spain. Thor therefore grew up in an environment where personal liberty was held in high esteem.

The Pragmatic Fight

Thor’s knowledge about human rights defense is not just theoretical. He has had first-hand experience concerning the suffering that citizens go through in tyrannical regimes. His father endured the full brunt of cruelty after he exposed a major narcotics syndicate. His mother was also shot while taking part in a demonstration against Hugo Chavez’s regime. His cousin Leopoldo, who has been a sharp critic of the Chavista administration is currently languishing in jail as a political prisoner.

Thor derives strength from such instances. Many would expect him to exude bitterness towards the Venezuelan people. He however loves them unconditionally. This explains why he has unconditionally embraced mavericks and political troublemakers who are best known for blowing spitballs at dictators while standing up against totalitarian regimes. Thor Halvorssen looks up to renowned political philosopher, John Stuart Mill.

Up-Close with the Man

The human rights advocate has also had resounding success as a film producer. He has been steadfast in championing the rights of the powerless. His advocacy career begun in 1989 when he organized other students to demonstrate against the Apartheid rule in South Africa.

Under Thor Halvorssen’s leadership, HRF has helped liberate many political prisoners. He has also been pivotal in promoting democracy and tolerance in Latin America. Mr. Halvorssen has submitted damning dossiers to tens of commissions investigating human rights violations. He has similarly published extensively on issues related to human rights.

Hard Times Making Devco Revitalization Loan Difficult To Repay

In 2005 DEVCO built the Heldrich Hotel complex, including a large conference center, which has never been more than 63 percent occupied. It was paid for with a loan to the Middlesex County Improvement Authority in New Jersey. The lead attorney who is guiding Devco and the Atlantic City Development Corporation, Chris Paladino, says repayment of the loan may take an extra couple of years. It was Paladino who put the whole deal together in the beginning. He is not worried for the long term, but does state that because of low occupancy, the loan for the complex will be repaid on a longer term schedule than was originally planned. He also points out that the project has shown to bring a revitalization of the downtown location, which will lead to the whole city becoming vibrant again, in the long run.

Devco stands for The New Brunswick Development Corporation. It is a non-profit organization that develops real estate specifically in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The aim is to use Devco to drive interest in revitalizing the city’s blighted urban areas. They have been particularly active in updating one full block of the downtown area into a new type of urban community. It was built with a $20 million loan provided by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. The loan’s repayment is already behind over $7 million.

So far, Devco has operated on several city projects, with a budget of $1.6 billion. Most of this came from New Brunswick investors. The method Devco is using has proved successful. Their partnerships, both public and private, are effectively re-imaging the city of New Brunswick. They are also expert at securing funding to complete their projects, some of which have won major awards. Read more about this in this article in Press of Atlantic City.
