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.!/All/

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.

Latino Vote


Are #HispanosUnidosdeAmerica Latinos united? According to The AP, It's a persistent paradox in American politics: Many Hispanic families have an immense personal stake in what happens on Election Day, but despite population numbers that should mean political power, Hispanics often can't vote, aren't registered to vote, or simply choose to sit out.

Top Countries


The United Nations lists Norway, Australia, Switzerland, Denmark and Netherlands as the top five counties to live. Not America, but Scandinavia’s reputation is still going strong.

Norway maintains the top spot of the Human Development Index rankings in a report released by the UN. The index was designed in 1990 to give a fuller picture of livability by combining income data with health and education statistics instead of ranking countries on economic achievement alone.

As noted, Australia and Switzerland took second and third place. The U.S. ranked number eight. The bottom five countries in rank order of HDI are: Niger, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Chad and Burundi. There is twice as wide a range in HDI values among the bottom five countries compared to the top five, which indicates that countries with the highest HDIs have similar human development while countries at the bottom vary much

Idiots or Innocents?


These terms may apply to an individual, a small or large group of people. I personally watched this unravel with the latter. Today is Sunday, Jan. 1, the first day of 2017 with what could turn out to be 364 global crazed days to follow.

He was a rebel leader who led a successful revolt against the establishment was ready to exercise a triumphal victory with his forces as he prepared to move into the capital.



The United States of America must conduct an investigation and consider canceling special interest influence and donations. These culprits are spreading cancer and endangering our government by increasingly infiltrating our political system of government.

Special interests are the predatory animals which are devouring our democracy. Some of these toxic groups direct public policy and increasingly play a destructive part in the development of political and social systems. Special interests are demeaning and patronizing. They've gone wild and are now dangerous and out of control.

Forgotten Revolution?


The Peoples Republic of China keeps trying to forget its Cultural Revolution. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the day Mao Zedong issued the order that began China's Cultural Revolution.

This was a ten-year period of violence and chaos when more than 1 million who were perceived to be counterrevolutionaries were imprisoned, killed or committed suicide and the economy was left in a shambles.

President Obama Returns


He's back, Barack Hussein Obama II. The former President chose the University of Chicago in his first public appearance since leaving The White House. As expected, he handled himself like a pro.

President Obama said warned that political gerrymandering is preventing the country from tackling problems like economic inequality, a broken criminal justice system and climate change.



Here we go again, folks... The possibility of another federal government shutdown, which would be the second in two years is growing. US House conservatives oppose any funding for Planned Parenthood.

A move that blocks funding for Planned Parenthood would almost certainly lack the votes to pass the Senate, and would be vetoed by President Obama.

But House Republicans lack GOP votes to approve a funding measure that continues Planned Parenthood, and don't want to negotiate with Democrats.

House Democrats are demanding negotiations with GOP leaders on a budget. They also want spending limits known as the sequester to be lifted, and it’s not clear they’d back a short-term spending measure written by the GOP with no concessions.
