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.

BC: BILLIONAIRES CABINET

Issue

Will history be recorded by this updated BC term and will AD now mean after The Donald?

There's a huge difference between the greater good and your own individual aggrandizements. Actions speak louder than words. This expression reportedly dates back to 1628 and was first used in 1856 by Abraham Lincoln in US.

Politicians say things and make promises they have no intention of keeping. They say Make America Great many times, but until their behavior coincides with that, no one will believe it.

Does @realDonaldTrump hope his Asia jaunt creates a runway to get tax legislation off the ground?

Washed Away?

Issue

Our Coast, Our Future is a collaborative, user-driven project focused on providing coastal California resource and land use managers and planners locally relevant, online maps and tools to help understand, visualize, and anticipate vulnerabilities to sea level rise and storms.

The group has mapped what a rise in sea levels would do to the Bay area and it appears the locations of several of the world’s largest and most popular tech companies will wind up underwater because they have been built way too close to the coast.

SAVING OUR JOINTS

Issue

Our range of motion how far we can move a joint in various directions is determined by many things, starting with the inner workings of the joints involved. Also important is the amount of tension in the muscles surrounding the joint, which can be affected by scarring or our habitual posture (passive factors), or by involuntary muscle spasms or purposeful muscle contractions (active factors).

Stretching exercises can help extend our range of motion. To understand how, it helps to know what joints, tendons, and ligaments do:

SAINT OF THE GUTTERS

Solution

Her face is one of the most recognizable in the world and many recognize the "Angel of Mercy" image while never realizing what she was doing was good for so many people and is still revered by millions today. She has been called saint of the gutters and The Pope, as bishop of the slums.

My late father, who died around the same time as Mother Teresa did 19 years ago used to say he admired three women during his lifetime. His mom, Maria Teresa, my mom Margarita and Mother Teresa. Although these three special ladies have passed, they will never be forgotten.

GOP True Colors?

Issue

Late on Friday as news of Hurricane Harvey was intensifying another legal hurricane could also have been developing. Convicted former Arizona official Joe Arpaio was pardoned two months before the former Maricopa County sheriff was to be sentenced for federal criminal contempt.

Trump had reportedly sought to help his fellow “birther,” while Arpaio’s Arizona trial rolled on. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-asked-sessions-about-closi...

Don's Tramp Trap

Issue

Who speaks extremely noisily, walks hot and heavily and attacks those who disagree? Who claims that he is angry because America is not great, but was able to manipulate US laws that allows for multiple bankruptcies?

Media Move Ease?

If Carl Rowe was known as Bush's brain, are President Trump's strings being pulled by Stephen Bannon?

CON GRACE?

Issue

There is no grace going on there on Capitol Hill, and too much of a con job. Some ask where is it? Show me. Well, if progress is moving forward, and regress is moving backwards, what is Congress, a national con job?

The GOP lead congress has done very little over the past years. Call your representative and condemn them for their continual refusal to perform their jobs. Demand that constant bickering and personal attacks must stop.
