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.

Gobble Of Power

Issue

The man who has been attacking two-term President Obama vociferously and as long as anyone can recall is now expected to visit The White House.

How will The President welcome his successor? He called him unfit to serve as commander in chief. The Donald led the toxic birther charge challenging the legitimacy of Obama's presidency.

He is there to speak with US President Barack Obama about the transition plans. The President has instructed his staff to work toward a smooth transition, just as President George W. Bush and his team did for them eight years ago.

Volunteering and Civility

Issue

As the Christmas holiday spotlights acts of kindness and giving back, a new federal study shows that 1 in 4 volunteered through an organization and 3 in 5 helped their neighbors last year.

The annual Volunteering and Civic Life in America research, released today by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the National Conference on Citizenship, shows that service to others continues to be a priority for millions of Americans.

Too Little, Too Late?

Issue

The GOP candidates went all out to appear presidential in their 12th GOP debate speaking in firm but level tones.

The debate once again lacked specifics from all the candidates. This contest before Tuesday's polling at least did not degenerate into the mudslinging of past debates, when the candidates insulted and talked over one another.

Meanwhile, another former foe of The Donald, retired surgeon Ben Carson is endorsing Trump for president. This development may strengthen the front-runner’s support among blacks, conservatives and evangelicals.

OUT INCUMBENTS

Issue

US Congress members and state legislators have increasingly grown lazy and voters should exercise their right to vote, to get representatives working again and staying away from special interests and corruption.

Some observers may say it is probably not possible if the past record is any indication, but dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery must stop immediately.

Existing holders of political offices could be replaced during the upcoming elections where priorities are defined, established to improve structural advantages for all Americans.

Issue

Its not just Congress that is caught in DC gridlock, but local commuters now share a similar pain.

Hillary NYC Mayor?

Solution

Politics and payback often go hand in hand. The outcome could be very interesting because New Yorkers know her and have already voted for Hillary, so why not? But is she up for the task?

Brotherly Love?

Attraction

According to recently released research findings, some women look for men who remind them of their brothers. As creepy as this may sound, the Northumbria University study found that some were attracted to their siblings.

These findings weren't true of every woman but some partners did show a resemblance to the women's brothers.

Will Democracy End?

Issue

What if US had another democratically held election and nobody cast their ballots? Americans’ distaste for Trump And Clinton Is non-presidential. Registered voters don’t appear to be thrilled at the prospect of voting for either Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump. These two are more strongly disliked than any presidential nominee since the camp pain known as The Revolution of 1800. My God!
