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.

RIP: THE FORCE

Issue

With our apologies to Trekkies, this is about the "Obstructionists, we will call them "0 Force" those n US Congress which have done nothing for the past 8 years, and may ruin everything the greatest democracy on earth has worked hard to build. This is also for the media, which owns its fair share of the blame by doing next to nothing about preventing the mess we find ourselves in.

Its time to educate the public about "0 Force", which translates to America inaction. Future generations will condemn us for inaction. US citizens should register to vote and use #VoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word. http://cimages.me/content/register-vote-0

Start by cleaning House and Senate obstructionists. These are the culprits who have been trying to destroy the administration that our great nation voted for twice. It's not just about taking the White House, but it is also about changing Congressional leadership, which has been taking us in the wrong direction.

The media carry the blame for covering his antics and propping up The Donald. The media which gives him the platform to spew fear. Also, it's the GOP leadership which supported him and if they are not removed from powerful positions they will continue a path to the destruction of democracy.This is a clear explanation for increased foreign influence by corrupt nations and organizations.

Horrendous Harvey

Idea

This massive storm is testing the spirits of folks deep in the heart of Texas. As deaths continue to increase as a result of Harvey, this once a century storm has dumped more rain in a widespread part of southeast Texas which has so far received double digits of rain, with some locations passing 25 inches.

And why is the destruction of the past being repeated as the flood threat from #Harvey is now spreading into Louisiana? Roads have become rivers in #Houston and surrounding areas. At least 30 inches of rain so far and thousands of rescue calls to officials.

Hispanic or Latino?

Issue

They are multilingual but Hispanics may not identify with being Latino, not the same way in reverse.

Latinos I know have no problem being identified as Hispanics, but that is not always the case in reverse. Latinos refers to geography and Hispanics to the language, try explaining that to a Hispanic and insist they are Latinos.

US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain and the second most in the world, according to a recent study.

Wall of Words

Issue

President Trump has sparked a war of words over his signed executive orders mandating the construction of the wall and a mandate for internal immigration enforcement while punishing sanctuary cities.

The Mexican president has officially rebuffed president Trump over his border wall executive order and in an increasing wall of words over his insistence on a billion dollar boondoggle, President Trump is vowing to also crack down on hundreds of US cities which protect undocumented immigrants.

Cyber Theft Protection

Issue

This is expected to become Cyber Week as shoppers are extending the retail frenzy to include Thanksgiving week, but beware of identity thieves who are gearing up for their busy holiday season.

The following are some of the best ways to protect yourself from Better Business Bureau.

Lots of websites pop up around this time of year, offering deals you won’t find in the stores. The BBB suggests looking into the website to make sure you’re not falling into a scam. Some things to look out for:

Do they have a phone number and a physical address?

The Right to Remain Silent

Issue

This was never meant for members of Congress, who are no longer doing their jobs. More about that later.

It is designed to offer equal justice under the law. As US celebrates the 50th anniversary on June 13, it’s easy to forget the origin and purpose.

Miranda was the culmination of 30 years of Supreme Court cases that were designed to protect criminal suspects from abuse in police interrogations. The earliest of these decisions prohibited violence and torture.

Trump Trifecta Trip

Issue

President Donald Trump’s trips to the Middle East along with his audience with The Pope afterwards may become huge opportunities for healing amid his contentious positions and visits with Muslims, Jews, and Catholics leaders.

Trump's trifecta tour mat have been an awkward gamble during his meetings with world leaders whose views are different on key issues.

BOSS DAY

Solution

Boss’s Day is observed on October 16, or the nearest working day, which is today. I can safely say speaking from experience that if you have a boss, you're better off with a woman as your superior.

The day goes a long way to improving the relationship between employees and supervisors. Also, there's nothing more miserable than celebrating someone that you don’t like. And then there is the pressure if a collection being taken to get the boss a gift. If you don’t contribute, you're not a team player.
