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.

Passport Fraud Dangers

Issue

Honduras' National Registry of Persons has reportedly confirmed that hundreds of Palestinian, Syrian, and citizens of other Arab nations were fraudulently registered as Honduran citizens.

As a result, they are able to acquire Honduran passports to be used to apply for visas to enter the United States.

ICE Cold?

Issue

The number of "Bad Hombre" labels given to immigrant “criminals” who are being targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, should only apply to approximately half. From the total number who've been arrested during the latest detention and deportation raids. Half of those had traffic convictions, or no criminal records whatsoever, according to the federal government.

ICE data shows half of the immigrants arrested in raids had traffic convictions or no record. http://wapo.st/2oH4AZm?tid=ss_tw

MEDIA MANIPULATOR

Issue

The media is best when it offers unbiased news and rarely views in editorials. It should also be from all angles and on every media platform and format available. However, today's media is in a state of confusion because the medium did not see any of this coming. Trust me, I'm not lying. The Donald has managed to trump the media and continues to get away with it each and every day.

Temperarure Tantrums

Your tired, poor, huddled masses...

Announcement
Images: 

Someone hung a banner on Lady Liberty. It said "Refugees Welcome"

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

I Know Nothing About Politics...

Issue

This was the first phrase I learned when I arrived to the US and could barely speak English. My parents were trying to protect their children because of Fidel Castro's Revolution, The Cuban Missile Crisis and issues surrounding the base in Guantanamo.

However, politics is what decides much in our lives. From how our health care is set up, which subjects schools are teaching to salaries we will be earning as adults.

Thanksgiving thoughts

Idea

The past few days have been difficult for me to adjust to. It's was not only wet, cold and keeps on getting dark earlier every day, but leaving loved ones is always sad to say the least. Add to that, the political camp pain, which is a nightmare and what about those horrific acts overseas.

Therefore, I've decided to counter the bad by making a list of the good. May it lift all our spirits and give us all reasons to be thankful.

Thank you mother nature for creating us, other precious animals, plants for our pleasure.
