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.

MOTOR CITY MOVING FORWARD

Issue

Detroit's collapse into bankruptcy was after 50 years of neglect. The bottom line is that citizens there stopped fighting each other and started working together.

Now a few dozen local and national industry leaders, including Quicken Loans, which has brought hundreds of jobs to downtown Detroit are promoting TECHWEEK

Many of Detroit's emerging success-stories across technology, including those in finance, startups, health, e-commerce, fashion, makers and more will be recognized and discussed at Techweek Detroit.

#ChasingCleveland The Republicans

Issue

The press covered his long and winding political journey as a story that shouldn't, couldn't and wouldn't happen. Guess what, The Grand Old Party may be on the same road as The Federalists.

It's very clear The Donald is here and does not want to walk away. The reality star has raised the stakes from fear to tears. Trump is expected to accept the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

This loudmouth has-been NBC reality TV personality will show the doubters that Americans can't tell the difference between real life and media matters.

The Juice

Issue

Did you hear the one about a former wealthy celebrity who felt entitled enough to break the law, which landed him in prison? The juice is about to be freshly squeezed once again later this week.

Orenthal James Simpson, nicknamed The Juice, is a former American athlete, a broadcaster, an actor, and a convicted felon. OJ goes before a parole board considering his fate.

New York Values?

Issue

There has been much talk about "NY Values" during the political camp pain, but we are finally seeing and hearing that you can never tell what is going to come out of the mouth of a front runner besides hot air. Seriously?

We Don't Need No Stinking... FSC

Issue

We Don't Need No Stinking... Forensic Science Commission. The people require independent research.

Junked by the Justice Department as not necessary. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the discontinuance of the National Commission on Forensic Science. The group is an independent panel of experts chartered to raise evidentiary standards in criminal cases.

Sessions also announced the suspension of a review of FBI testimony about forensic techniques. An internal Justice Department review now will evaluate those techniques.
