Issues and Answers

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.

We Don't Need No Stinking... Bill A Wall?

Issue

How did we go from Build a wall and make Mexico pay for it to Bill a wall to US taxpayers?
Is it possible that the American taxpayer will lose health care and be billed for a border wall instead?

Mexico was supposed to pay for Trump's wall. Now that they won't, will Congress cut health care and Medicaid to fund the wall? Is this stinking wall more important than the health, welfare, and education of every US citizen?

Don't give any more tax money to rich people and corporations. Funds should no longer go towards military spending.

9/11

Issue

Much has been written and many theories have developed by people commemorating the September 11 attacks of 2001 on The World Trade Center in NYC. The following images may be able to either shine a light on the events of September 11, or cloud the issues surrounding this fateful day for US.

On the 14th anniversary of the attacks, video versions continue to develop supporting various viewpoints on this day of terror.

Terrible 3

Problem

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life... It has nothing to do with pretty or ugly.

It is all about respect and admiration. You must also avoid:

Choosing the wrong partner. A lot of people choose somebody for the wrong reasons. Have a solid foundation in the relationship so that the partnership can continue when some of the other factors start to erode.

Lack of communication. It's important to resolve disagreements immediately and not allow resentment to build. Take time to right any wrongs and never go to bed angry with each other.

Hurricane Irma

Issue

There's nothing sober, gentle, or sedate about Irma's arrival to the US mainland. As the category 4 hurricane begins an assault on Key West, it is expected to take its time drenching the Florida flatlands.

If there is anyone in the area and finds the winds going calm, you're in the eye, but do not go out. Stay inside! Winds dramatically shift and will do so violently! STAY PUT

Multilingual Mainstream Media

Issue

Providing multilingual information newspapers, television networks, radio stations, websites and global media sources over the internet. A new player online is NYT in Español.

The New York Times wants “to tailor our journalism and products to make them more relevant for specific new audiences, rather than viewing the rest of the world as just one big audience.”

HAPPY VALENTINE

Solution

Whether you're male or female, straight or gay... VALENTINES could be a special day.

Some say VALENTINES DAY is the day we're encouraged to make romantic gestures.

Whichever path you've chosen, you may consider saying:

Same Sex Attractions?

Issue

We live in a global society where everyone is assumed heterosexual unless they say it openly, or its otherwise obvious because most folk appear to be heterosexual.

But for those who aren’t, attempting to show interest in someone of the same gender can range from the awkward to interesting. There’s always the risk of hitting on someone who doesn’t return that sort of interest.

NO SMOKING GUN

News

After wasting seven hundred days of investigative work, which cost US taxpayers 7 million dollars, there's no smoking gun. However, the critics continue to waste time and resources pointing fingers at the over 700-page report on Clinton's actions before, during or after Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in the eastern Libyan city.

What Have You Done For US?

Issue

Dear Government-
What have you done for the US lately?
You have a GOP majority in Congress and WH.
There's no romance without healthcare and finance.
Remember that you're as good as your last day in office.
Yours truly,
-An American

PS

Filling your pockets with payoffs does not drain the swamp in the US.

Have you ever asked what you can do for your country?

Puttering with Golf balls does nothing for the US.

Playing a blame gets nothing done for the US.
