Digital Advertising Basics

Tips to improve your social media presence Over 20 years ago, when my grandmother came to the US for the first time, she was awestruck by the windy city. She was a businesswoman well-traveled within Guatemala, but nothing compared to Chicago. I remember seeing her once sitting in front of the microwave in the kitchen.

Immediately, our trade partners around the world began talking about retaliation. Canada, the biggest exporter of steel to the United States, announced that it would seek to put tariffs on the almost $13 billion U.S. exports. Our other trade partners in Europe and China have also spoken about reprisal. Today, many Europeans companies manufacture auto parts in the southeast states including Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The manufacturing facilities provide a boost to local economies. Their parts are placed in cars for American consumers and in cars exported...
