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.

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.

Big Bother and Baby Sitter

Issue

The 2016 camp pain has disintegrated into a playground brawl and a cafeteria food fight.

The activities that relate to influencing future actions and policies of a government or getting and keeping power for people and their opinions about what should be done according to political thoughts and opinions.

It has come to mud slinging and accusations of dirty tricks. Will an unfortunate flirtation with fascism lead to more violence, or death?

ICE Cold?

Issue

The number of "Bad Hombre" labels given to immigrant “criminals” who are being targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, should only apply to approximately half. From the total number who've been arrested during the latest detention and deportation raids. Half of those had traffic convictions, or no criminal records whatsoever, according to the federal government.

ICE data shows half of the immigrants arrested in raids had traffic convictions or no record. http://wapo.st/2oH4AZm?tid=ss_tw

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.

The Hits Keep Coming...

Issue

President Trump's National Security topper was fired, the Secretary of Labor candidate did not take the job. Now we learn that Admiral Robert Harward has turned down President Trump’s offer to replace Michael Flynn as national security adviser and several White House staffers have been let go after failing clearance.

Why is the president blaming others? Most agree governing is not about bullying people and pointing fingers. What the hell is going on with his so-called plan to make America Great?

HILLARY'S CHOICE

Issue

Hillary Clinton has broken the glass ceiling and it is now time for her to deliver the most important speech of her life.

For Clinton to deliver her victorious White House speech, she must improve her favorability ratings by reaching out to Bernie supporters, independents, and undecided voters.

This election is a referendum on the best of two unpleasant candidates, but she has the most favorable ratings.

Hillary has to focus on her sharp contrast with Donald Trump’s dark rhetoric and negative policies.

She saw her kid on the streets of Baltimore, so she went out to take him home and in the process, she showed him some tough love.

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."

Baby Born To Rabies Mom

Issue

The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases is reporting on the case of a pregnant woman, who gave birth to a healthy baby, but was infected with the rabies virus after a fatal dog bite.

The unbelievable story occurred a couple of years ago, but was just reported. The woman's rabies reportedly appeared in labor and she died after pregnancy. Her baby and husband did not develop this deadly disease.
