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.

PRAGMATIC TRUMP

Issue

An individual dealing with the problems that exist in a specific situation in a reasonable and logical way instead of depending on ideas and theories is considered to be pragmatic.

President Obama took questions from The White House Press Corps today.

- Seven + Seven

Issue

Lust – To have an intense desire or need: “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).

Gluttony – Excess in eating and drinking: “for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags” (Proverbs 23:21).

Greed - Excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more” (Ephesians 4:19).

FREE PRESS AND PUBLIC SAFETY

Idea

A non scientific analysis of the past week indicates there were lots of doings, including long lasting issues dealing with freedom of the press and the right to obtain information from public records in The United States of America.

Don't Be Rude

Issue

Supervisors' perceptions of how fairly they are treated by their own supervisors can influence their subordinates' perceptions, attitudes, and behavior. We present a moderated mediation model that demonstrates how work group structure can enhance or constrain these effects.

Results show supervisors' perceptions of the fairness of the interaction treatment they receive relate to their subordinates' perceptions of interaction justice climate, and this relationship is stronger in work groups with more organic structures.

Hillary NYC Mayor?

Solution

Politics and payback often go hand in hand. The outcome could be very interesting because New Yorkers know her and have already voted for Hillary, so why not? But is she up for the task?

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.

WAIT A LEAP SECOND

Issue

Back in 1967 clocks went atomic, and human timekeeping was dependent of the earth’s rotation. The problem is, the planet is slowing down and clocks are not.

So every few years, to get everything back in sync, scientists add a second. They’ve done it 25 times since 1972. The last time was 2012, but that was on a weekend. June 30 will be the first leap second during trading hours since markets went electronic.

Leap seconds are added to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) - and clocks worldwide - in order to compensate for the slowing of the Earth's rotation.

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

Issue

The current temperature tantrums are unpleasant all over the world and these wicked and disruptive weather behaviors and global outbursts have been registered from NYC, USA to Shanghai, PRC.
