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.

Empathy vs Ego

Issue

We all have an ego, but size differ. We got it in primary school when kids were jerks or perhaps earlier if our older siblings, or other family members were jerks first. The ego kept us safe from the emotional slings and arrows. But now that we're grown, it is a wall that separates. It's time for it to come down. By practicing openness instead of defensiveness, forgiveness instead of vengeance, apology instead of blame, vulnerability instead of strength, and grace instead of power.

POTUS35 John F Kennedy was President of the United States from January 1961 until his shocking and mysterious assassination in November 1963. Was it Cubans, Russians, or something more sinister?

Register to avoid political disaster

Issue

Federal, state and local public servants have joined political inaction committees, which are wasting our tax dollars and courting political disaster.

Voter registration is the responsibility of all the citizens of The United State of America, but only 70 percent of those who are eligible to vote have been registered.

RegistertoVote.org is committed to reaching the remaining 30 percent. They simplify the voter registration process, making it faster and easier for US citizens to get involved and become an active voice in the democratic system..

Corruption

Issue

Happy belated birthday to Boss Tweed. April 3, 1823 – April 12, 1878. On the morning of April 12, 1878, William Tweed, known to the world as Boss Tweed, was dying. As the clock in the Essex Market tolled noon, the man who had once ruled New York, abandoned by friends and associates, lying in a prison bed, breathed his last.Tweed, disgraced, held up to contempt and ridicule before the very people who had held him in high esteem was gone.

The Real Deal

Issue

This is not reality TV, nor the art of any money making deal. It's real serious and our nation depends on it.

How can we the people of The United States of America allow members from the lunatic fringe to ruin our future?

US Classroom Walkout

Attraction
Images: 

Today's school walkout is about telling lawmakers to do something because students will no longer stand in silence while people are gunned down in schools, churches, and on the street. Today, thousands will stand across this great nation and say enough, no more.

Last month a Trump supporter stormed into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15-style rifle and killed 17 students and faculty members. Since then, Parkland, Florida, survivors and their allies have turned their grief into activism and advocacy. Part of the effort is this day's national school walkout.

NO RESPECT

Announcement
Images: 

Many cultures and traditions place lots of thrust on paying respect to their senior citizens. In some communities and societies, children are expected to listen, learn and give back to their elders.

However, everyone knows that respect is a two-way street and it has to be earned. According to national polls, Wahington DC lost all respect long ago and may have a long way to go to get back its Mojo.

Respect is a quality seriously lacking in today's society. So, what the hell does it mean when our elected leaders insist on being mean?
