Good news and bad news for five influential Latin Americans

Time Magazine has published its list of "100 Most Influential People in the World for 2015" and the good news is that there are five Latin Americans included:
Aura Elena Farfán, the Guatemalan human rights activist at the forefront of the movement for justice and criminal proceedings from the civil war period (mostly 1980s). 
Raul Castro: Old dude in Cuba.
Jorge Ramos: Mexican born journalist and head face of Univision News. 
Pope Francis: Old dude from Argentina. 
Jorge Paulo Lehmann: Very very wealthy Brazilian person (Brahma beer amongst many other things).
And the bad news: 
  • Kim Kardashian and Kayne West are on the same list.
  • Nobody under 50 years old gives a damn about Time Magainze.
