MAKING HISTORY one brushstroke at a time...


From Paris to Venice to Rome, Europe’s most iconic cities have played host to magnificent ceremonies and dramatic events—and artists have been there to record them. During the eighteenth century, princes, popes, and ambassadors commissioned master painters such as Canaletto and Panini to record memorable moments, from the Venetian carnival to eruptions of Vesuvius, inspiring what became the golden age of view paintings.

This first exhibition focusing on views of historic events includes more than 40 works, many never seen before in the U.S. These paintings turn the viewer into an eyewitness on the scene, bringing the spectacle and drama of history to life.
Visit the Getty Center in May and enjoy this great exhibition!

My Frustrating Story with GODADDY

Dear friends and readers, I am going to share an experience I had with the company GODADDY.COM that claims to have an excellent customer service, but I am having a terrible and frustrating experience with such service.

All I need is to be able to change my phone number to receive a code, since I activated 2 step verification process and codes are sent to your phone on file for greater security, but since I only go to GoDaddy site once, when I changed phone numbers and deactivated my old phone number, I forgot to cancel it and now I am not able to enter my own site because codes are being sent to the old deactivated phone number.

I have already answered all their questions and filled out their email forms they sent me and after 13 days STILL NO ANSWER! 

This coming week, I will tell you what was the end of this frustrating and incredible experience of the worst customer service I have ever encountered! And be careful when you enable doble security (when you have to provide a code sent to your phone to verify it´s you) make sure you disable it before you change your phone number or you will not be able to access your own Internet account.

If a company does not provide an alternative way to access that security code, which most do, except GODADDY, BE CAUTIOUS, DO NOT ENABLE TWO STEP SECURITY AND PLEASE look for another company that offers double ways to verify your code. Otherwise, If you have the need to change phone numbers for any reason, and you forgot to cancel 2 step verification, you will start a nightmare trying to get back into your own account!

Other companies like GOOGLE and YAHOO were very fast and helpful sending a code to my email, or alternative email. They also gave me choices like an alternative phone number to be able to access the security code.

That is why I am sharing this nonsense attitude with my readers and with my audience at TONY FRANCO RADIO SHOW. I hope something positive comes out of this frustrating experience and we both can learn a good lesson.

I am so frustrated with not getting an answer for something so simple, if I need a code to enter my own site then email me one, you have had my business for so long and a hacker would not request a code to be sent to the customer email, or if they have my physical address send  a letter or if I answer the secret password then it means that I am the person they do business with, but try to help a customer in need! And It has been 13 days and still I cannot get into my account! And the worst part my site being down is causing me financial losses.

 

YES GODADDY MAYBE IS TIME TO MOVE ON IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION!

APRIL 5, 2017

THE PROBLEMS CONTINUES...

GODADDY continues sending verification codes to my old phone number even though I HAVE TOLD THEM A DOZEN TIMES I CHANGED PHONES! THE WHOLE ISSUE HERE IS THAT I FORGOT TO CANCEL 2 STEP VERIFICATION FIRST, OR IF I KNEW WHAT NUMBER THE NEW TELEPHONE PROVIDER WOULD GIVE ME, OF COURSE I WOULD HAVE UPDATED IT... But since I only go to my domain site registrar once a year, I forgot to cancel this feature.

Any other company finds a way to help you using other means like an alternate email, or phone NOT GODADDY SO BE CAREFUL!  I have been trying to reach different departments and no answer, I just get an email after email saying that my domain name has expired but no help on how to get into my account to pay it.

Many people I have talked to, told me once you sent the form and your ID to cancel two step verification, they respond in 3 days NOT TRUE! And in the meantime, my website is offline! 

What good can come out of this experience?

On my part, I realized how hard it would be for someone to steal your domain if you have 2 step verification, BUT REMEMBER TO UPDATE IF YOU HAVE YOUR NEW NUMBER PRIOR TO DEACTIVATING THE OLD ONE, OR CANCEL IF PHONE NUMBER IS CHANGED AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW THE NUMBER AFTER THE CHANGE!  Once you get the new number, you can access your site without a problem, because you have cancel 2 step verification and you can just sign in with your account number or user and password, no codes needed! And if you so desired, you can activate 2 step verification again because it really works!!! (even against you hahaha)

On GoDaddy's part, I really hope (if they really care), this experience will make them realize that THEY NEED TO HAVE ALTERNATIVES to provide clients with a faster solution for this kind of problem. Or hire more people that listen to a customer problem and instead of saying "I am sorry there is nothing we can do you have to just wait for an email answer or keep trying", They look for ways to really FIND A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM and help the client.

2-GODADDY needs to honor the time frame when a customer should have an answer from 2 step verification department. They claim it is 72 hours and it has been more than 20 days now!

3-Once client has updated his or her email with the company, (they finally provided me a site link, but not why not from the beginning if they knew my site was off and I could not use the registered email) GODADDY should have a code sent to that updated email so their client can cancel two step verification and avoid all the red tape because YES, I understand our security is first, but there are other ways to verify a client who has been using alternate emails with GODADDY for 4 years! And a company SHOULD NOT GO THE OPPOSITE WAY and make a nightmare and frustrating experience of this situation. 

4-GODADDY SHOULD PROVIDE ALTERNATE TOOLS in case TWO STEP VERIFICATION DEPT. TAKE THEIR SWEET TIME RESPONDING, OR INSIST IN SENDING CODES TO OLD PHONES OR NON WORKING EMAILS. That would help a client in distress and would show that they really care and can see the impact it would have on a client having his official webpage being offline! 

APRIL 10, 2017 

Dear readers, it has been 24 days since I contacted GODADDY to move my domain or at least registered and after complying to all requested documents including sending a copy of my Id! They continue denying to either register my domain or let me migrate it to my hosting company.

GODADDY claims “WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU!” But honestly, HIS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS A NIGHTMARE!

A TRIBUTE TO THE EAGLES ONE OF THE LAST CONCERTS WITH GLENN FREY


The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. With five number-one singles, six Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California, were ranked among the 20 best-selling albums in the United States according to the Recording Industry Association of America. Hotel California is ranked 37th in Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" and the band was ranked number 75 on the magazine's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.



The Eagles are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records[3]—100 million in the U.S. alone—including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California. "Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)" was the best selling album of the 20th century in the U.S.[4] They are the fifth-highest-selling music act and the highest-selling American band in U.S. history.




The Eagles released their self-titled debut album in 1972, which spawned three top 40 singles: "Take It Easy", "Witchy Woman", and "Peaceful Easy Feeling". Their next album, Desperado (1973), was less successful than the first, only reaching number 41 on the charts; neither of its singles reached the top 40. However, the album contained two of the band's most popular tracks: "Desperado" and "Tequila Sunrise". They released On the Border in 1974, adding guitarist Don Felder as its fifth member midway through the recording of the album. The album generated two top 40 singles: "Already Gone" and their first number one, "Best of My Love".


Their 1975 album One of These Nights included three top 10 singles: "One of These Nights", "Lyin' Eyes", and "Take It to the Limit", the first hitting the top of the charts. The Eagles continued that success and hit their commercial peak in late 1976 with the release of Hotel California, which would go on to sell more than 16 million copies in the U.S. alone and more than 32 million copies worldwide. The album yielded two number-one singles, "New Kid in Town" and "Hotel California". They released their last studio album for nearly 28 years in 1979 with The Long Run, which spawned three top 10 singles: "Heartache Tonight", "The Long Run", and "I Can't Tell You Why", the lead single being another chart-topping hit.

The Eagles disbanded in July 1980 but reunited in 1994 for the album Hell Freezes Over, a mix of live and new studio tracks. They have toured consistently since then and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2007, the Eagles released Long Road Out of Eden, their first full studio album in 28 years and their sixth number one album. The next year they launched the Long Road Out of Eden Tour in support of the album. In 2013, they began the extended History of the Eagles Tour in conjunction with the band's documentary release, History of the Eagles.

THE NEWS THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD 53 YEARS AGO...

Fifty three years have passed since one of my favorite presidents was killed. On November 22, 1963, the entire world  was shocked by the news that John F. Kennedy, President of the United States, had been assassinated. And even though many have tried to convince us, that his killer Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, most of us still believe the contrary...

Historian Robert Dallek once said “People cannot believe someone as inconsequential as Oswald could kill someone as consequential as an American president,” author of An Unfinished Life, a 2003 JFK biography.



JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY PRESIDENCY


His famous words as he addressed the nation will never be forgotten by those who admired him "SEEK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, AS WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY..."


Today, the question still remains...Why has the government and the CIA postponed the date to make all the documents linked to the case public? 

According to the United States Government, these documents "could be made public next year in October 2017. But, Are all the documents going to be released?, or Will the CIA claim that some might be too sensitive to be exposed...By the time these documents become available to the public many people would probably not remember who John F. Kennedy was, or will just recognized him as the assassinated president in the sixties and nothing more, but most of us who remember and are interested to know who killed our beloved president, will be gone...

I believe that yes, this might be the speech that killed President Kennedy...


Don Adams, a retired FBI agent whose career as an FBI agent spanned 22 years, never really bought the official line of his own employer: that Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, assassinated President John F. Kennedy.

Adams, who died on June 14 at age 83 in Akron, Ohio, eventually wrote From an Office Building with a High-Powered Rifle (Trine Day, 2012), in which he argued that “the FBI’s investigation was compromised from the top down, beginning with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.” He made this revelation about John F. Kennedy assassination: 


I will share vídeos with different opinions, theories and some facts about Kennedy´s death and YOU WILL DECIDE if  President Kennedy´s assassination was a conspiracy or not...

Top 10 Reasons To Believe There Was A Conspiracy To Assassinate JFK




In an essay for The Washington Post, prolific novelist Joyce Carol Oates opines that the real problem in the aftermath of the assassination of President Kennedy was not the government’s implausible and mendacious account of the crime but the confused and outraged response of the American majority that could not–and does not–believe it.

What do you believe...?

DONALD TRUMP ELECTED 45TH PRESIDENT OF USA

tony-franco-30From the beginning when he announced his candidacy,  Donald Trump was heavily criticized and even many members of his party did not want him as a Republican presidential candidate, however this Tuesday, November 8, against all odds and obstacles, Donald Trump was elected as the new President of the United States in a close race in the popular vote, but more notorious in the electoral votes count. 
Donald Trump was the winner in 30 states, while Hillary Clinton won 20 states and the District of Columbia.


The United States Congress will also be Republican majority, which will facilitate the task of the new president-elected Donald Trump.















In the Democratic headquarters, many people were sad about the results but also surprised of the vast support received by Trump, since the polls were favoring Clinton in many states just a few days ago,  but she lost!   

To all our readers I have to say this.... We never know what the future might bring,  but sometimes, the one who we less expect to do the right thing, might be the one who ends up doing it better! Let´s give Donald Trump a chance as President before judging him. 

I really like his attitude on his victory speech.   He praised Hillary Clinton and was a humble winner, not an arrogant one. He also reached for those who did not vote for him to unified forces and come together as one, to work hard and make this country a great nation once again! 



On behalf of our magazine EL NOTICOTO www.elnoticoto.com and our radio program TONY FRANCO RADIO SHOW www.elshowdetonyfranco.com,  want to extend my congratulations to the new President  DONALD J. TRUMP and I would like to ask  all our readers and listeners to join and support the new President  and put aside our differences to make this great country of us, a strong and powerful nation with equal opportunities for all regardless of race or social class ....
