Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

It cheating on the planet when you really think about it. VW was cheating on emissions tests and fined $14.7 billion. And that's just the beginning.

Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President-

Democracy is not a joke. It’s something we must work hard at and are tremendously proud of. We all want it to last, which is why you must treat it accordingly.

It is not just enough to say America first, but you must match your words with actions and represent all Americans. If you put any of us last; it’s a tragic, sad affair.

Our lives are consumed by the logistics of running our households, managing careers and caring for our families. This great nation provides the foundation for everything that we and our forefathers have built together.

Different is Good

Idea

The time has come to end the harmful teachings by some religious denominations that being LGBT is bad, or whatever words they use to demean, call evil, and cause enormous pain to our youth. More and more people are changing their minds….from evangelicals to Presbyterians to Catholics to Conservative Jews. Our understanding of human sexuality, and the natural place of same-sex love in it, has evolved!

HAIL MARY PASS

Issue

With only three days away, it's a Hail Mary pass for the GOP nominee as he begins to panic this close to rejection day. As many football fans know, a Hail Mary is a very long forward pass made in desperation with only a small chance of success. In the Hail Mary pass all receivers run straight toward the end zone and the quarterback will make a long pass that is often "up for grabs."

Trump's Niger Problem

Issue

Has Niger turned into Trump's Benghazi? A nation of nearly 21 million people, the Republic of the Niger is landlocked in Western Africa, named after the Niger River. An attack which resulted in the deaths of four elite US special forces with two others wounded when their unit, which was assisting local forces, was ambushed by local members of Islamic State in southwest Niger has drawn many questions the Trump administration apparently wishes to ignore with fake news. Congresswoman warns Niger ‘might wind up to be Mr. Trump’s Benghazi’ — is she right?

Over, under and out?

Issue

New York City appears to be crumbling right from under our feet, according to some. Many are expressing their disappointment with the subway system, while others are increasingly concerned with the level of violence underground and on the streets.

I have lived and worked in NYC for decades and the situation appears to be getting more serious by the day, and night. The only way the situation is going to improve is wehn New Yorke residents realize its up to US.

WATER EVERYWHERE?

Issue

But is clean water as available as we may think? Every day we hear stories about water and rarely pay attention because we assume there's plenty of it to go around.

I am fortunate because I live on an island in New York City, where drinking water is world-renowned for its quality. Each and every day, more than 1 billion gallons of fresh, clean water are delivered from large upstate reservoirs as far as 125 miles from NYC to the taps of nine million thirsty neighbors throughout New York.
