Te Olvida via NV Marketing and Public Relations for use by 360 Magazine

Manuel Torizo – Te Olvido

Latin music superstar Manuel Torizo released his new song and music video, “Te Olvido.”

“Te Olvido” is a ballad that turns into a slow-tempo reggaeton that talks about being deceived by the person you thought was your partner and asking them to never come back. The song begins with Torizo giving us the backstory of the situation before transitioning to the pre-chorus, and finally dropping the beat in the chorus. 

“Don’t even bother giving my an explanation // If you ever think of apologizing when you’re alone // I hope you don’t even try it // Just remember I was rooting for you, and you threw everything out the window // You didn’t care how much I valued you, it just ended in lies,” Manuel Turizo begins singing, portraying his heartbreak with a lot of feeling that comes through his performance.

The music video, directed by P The Chemist, shows Manuel accepting the heartbreak and promising himself to forget that deception in one night. The inspiration behind it was the year 2000, which is the year when Manuel was born and will be the name of his upcoming third album. In the video, the viewer immerses themself in a memorable trip to the past with very recognizable tributes to shows, fashion, and celebrities that shaped a generation.

The video begins in a girl’s bedroom, exactly how you’d expect a teenager in the 2000s to decorate her room. Her TV is on, where we see the first hint of Manuel before taking us into his universe which feels like a mix of MTV Cribs and Entertainment Tonight. His fashion choices are very reminiscent of the styles of icons such as Pharrell, Nelly, and even Justin Timberlake, as he shows how he’s now getting over the heartbreak.

About Manuel Turizo

Manuel Turizo found fame after releasing his song “Una Lady Como Tù” (1.5 billion views) in 2016 and topping Colombia’s and then Latin America’s charts. This unprecedented success caught the attention of Juan Diego Medina and La Industria INC, who signed him as their artist to continue pushing a successful career of a very talented young man. His following singles “Esperàndote” and “Culpables” have garnered over 700 million views each, further cementing the career of Manuel Turizo among Latin music’s favorites.

He’s collaborated with names such as Nicky Jam, Ozuna, Darell, Noriel, Anuel AA, Zion & Lennox, Wisin & Yandel, Rauw Alejandro, Myke Towers, Piso 21, Maluma, Sech, Jay Wheeler, Mau & Ricky, Camilo, and more, and his songs have received multiple certifications from gold to platinum. He’s been nominated for Premios Juventud, Latin American Music Awards, Premios Tu Mùsica Urbano, Latin Billboards, and Latin Grammys.

Manuel Turizo has released two highly successful albums, ADN and Dopamina, and is working on his third project, 2000, an ode to the year he was born in. Currently, he’s on tour across the US, passing through cities such as Tampa, Chicago, El Paso, Orlando, Houston, New York, and more.

OBSERVAMÉ Apparel Line

ATTORNEY AND FORMER LAW SCHOOL ASSISTANT DEAN LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE ATHLETIC, ATHLEISURE, AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL APPAREL LINE OBSERVAMÉ

After a year of research and development, ObservaMé launched a line of sports, athleisure and healthcare professional apparel that sets the company apart from other brands in the industry. Karen D. Fultz-Robinson, a former attorney now fashion designer, has chosen the United States, specifically Tampa, to be the headquarters for all activities involving the design, manufacturing and distribution of the ObservaMé clothing lines for men and women.  

The ObservaMé brand was developed to meet the demands of those living active lifestyles while addressing the need for easy access to personal fitness trackers and watches while training. All active wear shirts include a provisionally patented, one-of-a-kind, design that allows for easy viewing and access to fitness devices directly through the sleeve. Recently, Fultz-Robinson also learned that there was a need for the patent design to allow access to watches in the medical field, which led to the development of the ObservaMé compression sleeves.

As a marathon runner, Fultz-Robinson knows that training happens under many weather conditions and access to fitness tracking devices should not be a distraction. The ObservaMé design concept was born during a 15-mile run. Fultz-Robinson developed sketches and assembled a team to help her put together the mock-ups and final patterns.

“As an athlete, regardless of weather, I wanted to track my progress – pace, heart rate, and distance, and sometimes you just want to know what time it is,” said Fultz-Robinson. “Why should something seemingly so simple be difficult to access?  Athletes or anyone living an active lifestyle shouldn’t have to struggle to view their devices.”

Today, the product line has grown to include the signature shirts along with vests and performance pants and a variety of accessories. ObservaMé’s brand name was also chosen by Fultz-Robinson to explain the company’s purpose for its customers. ObservaMé means “watch me” in Spanish.

“We help the consumer watch their performance and provide a stylish look that draws others to watch them as they compete or overcome performance barriers,” said Fultz-Robinson. “It references the clocks (watches) on our wrists but also encourages accountability, which helps us strive to maintain our fitness goals.”

While all long-sleeved ObservaMé apparel has been designed to stop the need for tugging or placing straps over the sleeve, each article of ObservaMé active wear is hand-made with high-quality dry wick material and some provide UV protection for active lifestyles (i.e., running, cycling, hiking, boating, golfing, hunting, and etc.). The streamlined designs contour to all body types for easy flexibility during any activity and all-day comfort, and the fabric is soft to the touch which prevents chaffing. The compression sleeves, which also provides easy access to watches and fitness trackers, can be used by athletes for sun protection or quickly convertible warmth, but have also been tested for use by those in the medical profession to prevent skin contact with inadvertent splashes from contaminants while allowing for monitoring vitals and staying warm.

The ObservaMé apparel line for men includes half-zip and crewneck shirts, hoodies, vests, full-zip jackets with hoods and performance pants. Women’s athletic/athleisure wear includes half-zip and V-neck shirts, full-zip jackets with hoods (with a high/low option), vests, hoodies, and long and capris style performance pants. All apparel is available for purchase at www.observame.net, and during various athletic events nationally.   ObservaMé has previously appeared at the Boston and Detroit Marathons.

All products are manufactured at ObservaMé’s headquarters in Tampa, located at 14260 Carlson Circle, under Fultz-Robinson’s supervision to ensure the quality of each product meets the high standard set by the company.

Before founding ObservaMé, Fultz-Robinson practiced state and federal commercial and business litigation with the Tampa office of Sheehe & Associates, P.A., and was an assistant dean and professor at Cooley Law School’s Tampa Bay campus. Before moving to Florida, she was a partner and practiced commercial, business, subrogation and recovery litigation, as well as family law at the law firm of Cozen O’Connor in Atlanta, Georgia, and was an assistant vice president at Bank of America in the Estate Settlement Division. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Fultz-Robinson earned her bachelor’s degree in International Relations at Michigan State University and juris doctor from Thomas M. Cooley Law School’s Lansing, Michigan campus.

Cyber Florida Publishes Free Cybersecurity Guide

Cyber Florida is pleased to announce the launch of Cyber Defense for SMBs, a free resource for small and medium-sized businesses. This beginner’s guide introduces readers to the fundamentals of cybersecurity for business to help SMBs be better prepared to respond to, and recover from, cyberattacks. Cyber Defense for SMBs is available as a free digital download at http://www.cyberflorida.org/SMB.

“Small businesses are targeted by cybercriminals precisely because they are small,” remarked Cyber Florida Director Sri Sridharan. “Criminals know these businesses likely lack the financial resources necessary to employ state-of-the-art cyber defenses. Our goals with this guide are to help Florida’s small businesses avoid becoming victims of this troubling trend and if they are targeted, to help them be better prepared to recover and respond appropriately,” he said.

The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report stated that 58% of data breach victims in 2017 were categorized as small businesses. 

With input from experts in academia, private industry, government, and the military, this guide offers guidance to help SMBs identify the most cost-effective cybersecurity best practices for their business. Detailing some of the most important and urgent factors affecting cybersecurity, Cyber Defense for SMBs reviews the common threats SMBs are likely to encounter and industry-standard best practices for cyberattack prevention and mitigation, crisis management, and post-incident response.

In support of this effort, Cyber Florida has teamed up with the National Cyber Security Alliance to offer free workshops throughout the state of Florida that will provide SMB leaders with hands-on guidance. Workshops are planned for Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, and Tallahassee during the first quarter of 2019. For more details and to register for a workshop, please visit http://www.cyberflorida.org/SMB. 

Accompanying this initiative is a resource-rich webpage, www.cyberflorida.org/SMB, that offers planning and assessment worksheets and links to other helpful organizations and resources. The webpage will be updated often with tips and articles to help SMB leaders stay abreast of best practices, as cybersecurity is a rapidly changing field. 

Cyber Florida Director Sri Sridharan is available for press interviews. To schedule an interview, please contact Kate Whitaker at the email or phone listed above. For all other inquiries or questions, visit the Cyber Florida website at www.cyberflorida.org.

Jesse Mccartney Returns

Critically acclaimed, pop musician, JesseMcCartney is thrilled to unveil his new music video for his new song, “Better With You”. CLICK HERE to watch exclusively on Paper Magazine. The video was directly by Jo Roy and features Danielle Campbell (from the CW’s TV Show, The Originals).

McCartney says, “This is about that person who helps keep the divisive negativity in the world in perspective. The one who loves you no matter what.”

“Better With You” is McCartney’s first new music since his well-received 2014 album In Technicolor. The acoustic-guitar-driven pop song was co written with Brandyn Burnette, Molly Moore, and producer Rob Knox (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna).

His upcoming music is no different. With multiple platinum-selling tracks and a songwriting credit on Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” under his belt McCartney is ready to introduce his fans to who he is today. He plans to release more music throughout 2018 and bring his dedicated fans along for the ride.
