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.

American Rose

Issue

Six decades ago, a young black woman sat down for her rights and won her place in the history books. If she had been a man, she may have gotten into a physical altercation and not accomplish anything.

She says she was tired of giving in, so sixty-one years ago today, Rosa Parks took a stand by keeping her seat and was arrested for not giving up her seat to a white passenger.

Dirty Trick's No Treat

Issue

It's Halloween, which means it is now time to put on that costume for Trick or Treating, but please keep it clean, because there have been too many dirty tricks being played out.

Dirty tricks, politics, as usual, unethical acts, illegal campaign practices or pranks intended to disrupt or sabotage the campaigns of opposing candidates, or similar practices carried out against rival countries or corporations for espionage or commercial purposes.

Medical Technology

Issue

I am undergoing a series of medical procedures, which should answer the questions my doctors have raised recently... What's up with that?

Media marvels will be allowing hospital cameras to travel down my throat and also into my intestines for inspection (I've been assured that its not going to be the same camera) these tests, along with a scheduled cat scan ( I don't care for mean cats, or dogs for that matter) are being performed to take a closer look at my digestive system. I am told the stomach is the engine of our body.

Lucky 113 SCOTUS?

Idea

The 113th US Supreme Court Justice is sworn in today. Judge Neil Gorsuch becomes a Justice for life.
And now there will be nine as the 49-year-old former appellate judge from Colorado replaces the late Antonin Scalia, who served a large part of a @SCOTUS conservative wing for nearly three decades.

LEGAL IMMIGRATION

Issue

Lately, we've seen first hand how immigration is and will continue to be a hot button issue.

Countries don't usually lose their richest citizens to USA. Most aren't elite when they arrive in this great nation. In my family's case, we lost everything in CUBA; That’s why arrived here legally to re-build and start a new life.

@POTUS Speech

Issue

Will Americans continue to follow leaders who claim to be problem solvers, but are really trouble makers?

Will @POTUS speech be characterized - Do as I say, not as I do? What are most folks saying following his latest flip flop?

Are you interested in reading news reports, and pundit responses, or have you overdosed with all the drama, BS and had enough?

New Years Resolution

Issue

As we approach the end of another year, we make resolutions after taking stock of who we are and how we want to be.

We think about our diets and whether or not we need to exercise more, eat, or drink less alcohol. We wonder if we’re smart, frugal, ambitious enough, whether we've studied or read enough books or donated our time and spent our energies wisely. We question if we’re in the right relationship or the wrong job. We try to imagine how we can better enjoy our quality of life. How can we be the best person we can be.
