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.

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.

Merry Christmas

Issue

On this Christmas Eve and since Hanukkah begins today and stretches until New Year's Day. City Images wishes you a happy and healthy holiday season. Ho ho hoping you're able to snuggle up with loved ones.

If you're shopping, good luck getting thru the long lines of last-minute sales and be careful with gift cards.
For sports fans, there are plenty of sporting events being played from NFL to NBA on Christmas day.

It's My Party...

Issue

And I'll Lie if I Want To. This is what the 2016 political climate has been reduced to as we continually learn about flip flops, nasty accusations, and downright lies.

Old Timers Rock

Idea

Too many people wrongly assume that creativity and being inventive fades with age, but the opposite is true.

I have often watched or encountered age discrimination especially in the media and technical fields. Unfortunately, the frat-boy culture of Silicon Valley has only gotten younger and cockier.

GRIDLOCKEDUSA

Issue

Its not just Congress that is caught in DC gridlock, but local commuters now share a similar pain.
Where ido you suppose s the worst rush hour congestion in the entire country? The answer is in our nation's capital Washington, D.C., beat out commuting misery for LA, San Francisco and NYC with the dubious honor of worst rush hour congestion in the nation, according to TTI.

WHY UN?

Issue

The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization to promote international co-operation,but with more inaction than its worth. As a replacement for the equally ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945. UN is also a prefix meaning “not,”which is freely used as a formative, giving negative or opposite force in adjectives and their derivative adverbs and nouns.

Why NOT pull the plug and prevent a slow painful death?

American Dream or Nightmare?

Idea

Will there be more deaths and increased devastation as a result of a government that has failed some of US?

There was a time when this great nation welcomed all foreigners seeking a better life. But unfortunately, the lack of progress we have seen so far and most recently the DACA termination doesn't appear to be isolated acts. Is it an anti-immigrant camp pain undermining The United States of America's highest ideals of equality?
