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.

All News Is Good?

Problem

All politicians harbor a desire to get around the so-called media filter and deliver the news directly to the people. But what would such unfiltered news look like? What happens when they make inappropriate comments that solicit negative responses?

The accusations continue and some members of the public say they have not heard a true explanation or a believable response.

Simply calling experienced journalists for long-established news organizations "corporate lobbyists" is not a response to serious allegations.

No Tweets for UN

Idea

After sending Tweets about Rocketman and others, @POTUS has made his first statement as president at the United Nations and returns to the UN this morning for his first address to the 193-members of the world body's general assembly. However, the leaders of China and Russia are not expected there.

While tensions increase with North Korea, with a new terrorist attack in London and renewed efforts to bring peace to the Middle East, Trump will have plenty of topics to choose from for his speech, which is expected to be more than 140 long.

State of Refusal

Issue

Why are so many US states are going to be missing today's deadline to turn over voter information to the Trump administration?

Back in May, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order establishing the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The idea was to have Vice President Mike Pence chair the Commission, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach serving as the vice chair.

Don't Be Rude

Issue

Supervisors' perceptions of how fairly they are treated by their own supervisors can influence their subordinates' perceptions, attitudes, and behavior. We present a moderated mediation model that demonstrates how work group structure can enhance or constrain these effects.

Results show supervisors' perceptions of the fairness of the interaction treatment they receive relate to their subordinates' perceptions of interaction justice climate, and this relationship is stronger in work groups with more organic structures.

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.
