“Guatemala’s upcoming Attorney General Appointment will be a defining moment for the future of the country.” Despite enormous strides towards democracy in the past few decades, Guatemala’s corrupt politicians and tainted judiciary are eroding democratic institutions and weakening rule of law, while ordinary citizens, eager for better lives and greater justice, are denied any voice. Meanwhile, endemic corruption and impunity perpetuate Guatemala’s economic stagnation, which further increases social tensions and ultimately leads to greater instability. The appointment of Guatemala’s new Attorney General, which will occur in May...

Political campaigns are out of touch with reality. They design campaign strategies in echo chambers that fail to connect with ordinary individuals in a meaningful way. Their activities fuel growing anti-establishment sentiment and contempt for elitist politicians who “tell” voters what topics and issues are important, but fail to truly understand the concerns of everyday citizens. It’s time for a new approach that emphasizes politicians’ willingness to “listen,” which aligns candidates and constituents. The political landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade.

Companies need an advertising overhaul. One-way messaging, from companies to consumers, no longer sells. Online, television, radio, and print media advertisements are developed in vacuums, which often times result in marketing faux pas that incite significant backlash.

The majority of lone wolf attacks are committed by U.S. citizens or immigrants who purchase weapons legally. These...

With just a swipe, click, like, or tweet, social media (SM) has built widespread appeal as both a convenient virtual companion and an alternative news source. Mainstream Media (MSM) on the other hand, which was conceived during the pre-Internet era, is losing credibility due to questions about its objectivity and sourcing. The greatest challenge facing MSM is the inability of news editors and media executives to integrate public opinion. This is in stark contrast to SM, where news is crowd-sourced from millions of people. As...

According to a recent New York Times article, the NFL is now one of the most divisive brands in the U.S. It is rapidly losing viewers and even life-long football fans in the face of the ongoing player protests that focus on issues like police brutality and racial injustice. The NFL players’ union and 11 owners met this past Tuesday to discuss social issues; however the most contentious topic, the NFL's policy on the national anthem, did not come up. The NFL has seen tremendous blowback...
