Issue

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.

Spiritual Spring Training

Issue

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of lent. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York is receiving and distribute ashes at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral today. He calls it "Spiritual Spring Training"

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a 40 day period of prayer, penance and sacrifice to prepare for the celebration of Easter.

Dolan writes " Lest you think that your Catholic co-workers, neighbors, or passersby on the street forgot to wash their face, let me try to explain Ash Wednesday.

Brotherly Love?

Attraction

According to recently released research findings, some women look for men who remind them of their brothers. As creepy as this may sound, the Northumbria University study found that some were attracted to their siblings.

These findings weren't true of every woman but some partners did show a resemblance to the women's brothers.

What is your personal opinion?

Issue

When terrorists in Paris attacked offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring as many, they were protesting parody on the Prophet Muhammad.

Now, people all over have condemned the attack, with some carrying sings or posting “Je Suis Charlie” (“I Am Charlie”).

This attack was one of France’s deadliest in decades, prompting it to raise its terror alert to the highest level. From Bangkok to Berlin, thousands are taking a stand against living in fear, as rallies defend freedom of expression.

Sexting is a crime

Issue

Some say that sexting is the new flirting, but it is not. In fact, the act is highly illegal and considered a felony.
Apparently, this has been going on for a while and those involved are acting stupid and could wind up in prison.

All News Is Good?

Problem

All politicians harbor a desire to get around the so-called media filter and deliver the news directly to the people. But what would such unfiltered news look like? What happens when they make inappropriate comments that solicit negative responses?

The accusations continue and some members of the public say they have not heard a true explanation or a believable response.

Simply calling experienced journalists for long-established news organizations "corporate lobbyists" is not a response to serious allegations.

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.

The Academy Awards were probably the least favorite in history not only because of what happened at the end, but their television ratings were dismal. http://www.vulture.com/2017/02/2017-oscars-ratings-pretty-bad-but-no-dis...
