Greetings On-Line Family from Susan Mangatal and all of us at Arious Entertainment - susan@ariousentertainment.us


Now that the end of March approaches, Women's History Month comes to a close.  However, throughout this month many of us have recognized, celebrated and honored the accomplishments of Women throughout history.   We  have celebrated their diverse and historic accomplishments, as well as their rich and varied contributions to the history and culture of the United States and around the world.

Women have indeed changed the world, and throughout history it has been proven that Society cannot progress without the contributions of Women.  Actually, women and men are partners in steering society's development, but the many contributions by women were kept silent for numerous amounts of years and was never acknowledge.  Further, gender equality simply didn't exist for women.  

As women tried to pursue their goals, the challenges they faced throughout the years due to sexism, racism and segregation were unimaginable.  Nevertheless, through their strength, tenacity and intellect, they drew something deep inside their souls that helped them stay motivated and allowed them to succeed; despite their race, gender, class or age.  

Women have certainly advanced and have become extremely successful, empowered and in some aspects gained gender equality.  As a matter of fact, many are well on their way to becoming economically empowered due to them venturing into high-value and more meaningful economic activities and enterprise developments.  They are managing huge successful Corporations,  attacking and handling global financial crisis, and even setting policies in the new Presidential Administration.  In fact some are billionaires!  Lets celebration women and continue doing so throughout the entire year for all their outstanding contributions

This last week in March we continue celebrating and honoring the exceptional women of President Obama's Cabinet, who have  impacted our history with their education, skills, accomplishments, experiences and strength.  Read and get to know Lisa P. Jackson and Melody C. Barnes.


Lisa P. Jackson

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator

As EPA’s Administrator, Lisa P. Jackson, who is the first African American to serve in this position leads a staff of approximately 18,000 professionals dedicated to protecting the public health and environment of all Americans.  She was nominated to lead the Agency by President Barack Obama on December 15, 2008 and confirmed by the Senate on January 23, 2009.  At her Swearing In Ceremony on January 26, 2009, Ms. Jackson stated: "I am honored by the confidence and faith President Obama and the Senate have reposed in me to lead the EPA in confronting the environmental challenges currently before us. As Administrator, I will ensure EPA’s efforts to address the environmental crises of today are rooted in three fundamental values: science-based policies and programs, adherence to the rule of law, and overwhelming transparency. By keeping faith with these values and unleashing innovative, forward-thinking approaches – we can further protect neighborhoods and communities throughout the country. “ 

Administrator Jackson was born on Feb. 8, 1962, in Philadelphia.  She was adopted a few weeks later and raised in the Ninth Ward in New Orleans.  She was first in her class at St. Mary’s Dominican High School.  Later she graduated summa cum laude from Tulane University's School of Chemical Engineering and earned a master’s in chemical engineering at Princeton University.

Administrator Jackson lists among her priorities reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality, managing chemical risks, cleaning up hazardous waste sites, and protecting America’s water.

Before becoming EPA’s Administrator, Mrs. Jackson served as Chief of Staff to New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine.  Prior to that, she was appointed by Governor Jon S. Corzine to be Commissioner of the state’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in 2006. While Commissioner, Jackson was known for her advocacy for reducing greenhouse gases, aggressively addressing pollution, and having an open and honest dialogue with stakeholders in the public policy process.  She was also noted for ensuring that underserved communities received fair environmental protection under the law.

Earlier in 2002 Administrator Jackson joined Department of Environmental Protection serving as Assistant Commissioner for Compliance and Enforcement, then Assistant Commissioner for Land Use Management, before becoming Commissioner. Prior to joining DEP, she worked for 16 years as an employee of the U.S. EPA, initially at its headquarters in Washington and later at its regional office in New York City.  During that time, she was involved in directing hazardous waste cleanup operations and helping to direct the region’s enforcement division.

Governor Corzine said of her after her confirmation to head the U.S. EPA, “The American people have gained a tireless public servant and a tenacious guardian of the environment.” 

Administrator Jackson now resides in Washington D.C. and East Windsor, New Jersey. She is married to Kenny Jackson and is the proud mother of two wonderful sons, Marcus and Brian.
