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.

DemocRepublican?

Issue

What is @POTUS? The leader of the GOP, or a wannabe popular politician? Donald John Trump is the 45th President of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.

GRANDPARENTS

Issue

No matter if you're called Grandma, or Grandpa, being a grandparent is a magical feeling. I have been blessed with wonderful and healthy grandchildren, who call me GB. Grandpa BoB and I absolutely love them.

They live in California and I in New York, where I work as a college professor and teach approximately 100, 20 year old students each semester. But I often think about what it would be like if I was living closer to my grandkids.

YOU'RE FIRED?

Issue

Mexican businessman, C. Slim has reportedly decided to dismiss one of the members of in his firm. The Donald was apparently fired after Slim learned that the real estate mogul opined that Mexicans who come to the US are criminals, drug addicts and rapists.

Slim had previously decided to give an ultimatum to Donald when he learned he had spoken ill of famous film director Iñárritu following his victories at Oscars by the mere fact of being Mexican. However he decided to dismiss definitively after The Donald continued making racist comments.

FACT CHEKING

Issue

Media fact-checking is crucial, and will increase criticism and create cynicism . Journalisten then let the fact-checking begin.

This practice must become a larger segment of news for all citizen journalists. And the problem is that many of them are not merely calling balls, swing, and miss strikes. They are spewing views and making it seem like its news.

The Rocket’s Red Glare

Announcement
Images: 

A staredown and scary situation in a hostile or intimidating way, in which someone feels forced to look away increased today. The conflict between North and South Korea has been locked in a state of tension since The Korean War ended with a truce in 1953. The two nations have remained deeply hostile, exchanging occasional violence and showing plenty of hatred over the years across the Demilitarized Zone, which separates the two countries.

Mañana in Habana

Idea

You may not realize the depth of this announcement, but the death of Fidel Castro is big news for Cubans living all over the world.

When a strongarmed and tight-fisted dictator like Castro dies, the future of the island is definitely uncertain.

Cuba was my birthplace as well as for generations of The Soto family. My home for the first years of my life will literally and figuratively be "Mi Casa es Su Casa" My home is your home for. And all my friends, neighbors, and followers on social media who have been kind and supportive to me, please know that I will never forget.

Cuba si!

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..

Respect Restraint

Solution

Restraint is the act of self-control, which is not only a virtue but a blessing during these trying and hate-filled times that we have been exposed to.

On this Sunday, let's listen to and talk about a monk. Thelonious Monk was an artist who made restraint the beauty that we don't see but must always be on the lookout look for.

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?
