       National Women History Month. - Recognizing and Celebrating Women's Accomplishments throughout History!

March is National Women's History Month!  Therefore, this month we will recognize, celebrate and honor women.  We will celebrate 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.

The idea to honor women was established in this country in 1978, and it began as "Women's History Week".  In 1981 Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) co-sponsored a joint Congressional Resolution proclaiming "National Women's History Week", which was passed by Congress.  However, Congress expanded the week to a month in 1987 (coincides with Int’l Women’s Day - which will be celebrated on March 8th, 2009).  

This year the National Women's History Month Project Organization's (NWHMP) theme for this month long celebration is: "Women Taking the Lead to Save our Planet ."  This theme represents and honors women who have taken the lead in the environmental or "green" movement. NWHMP is featuring Rachel Carson, the founder of the contemporary environmental movement, who is the iconic model of the theme. Rachel Carson's work provides an admirable model for comparison. The 2009 Honorees are scientists, engineers, business leaders, writers, filmmakers, conservationists, teachers, community organizers, religious or workplace leaders or others whose lives show exceptional vision and leadership to save our planet.


Women's History Month 2009 Proclamation - President Barack H. Obama


Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release                                               March 3, 2009


- - - - - - -


With passion and courage, women have taught us that when we band together to advocate for our highest ideals, we can advance our common well-being and strengthen the fabric of our Nation. Each year during Women's History Month, we remember and celebrate women from all walks of life who have shaped this great Nation. This year, in accordance with the theme, "Women Taking the Lead to Save our Planet," we pay particular tribute to the efforts of women in preserving and protecting the environment for present and future generations.

Ellen Swallow Richards is known to have been the first woman in the United States to be accepted at a scientific school. She graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1873 and went on to become a prominent chemist. In 1887, she conducted a survey of water quality in Massachusetts. This study, the first of its kind in America, led to the Nation's first state water-quality standards.

Women have also taken the lead throughout our history in preserving our natural environment. In 1900, Maria Sanford led the Minnesota Federation of Women's Groups in their efforts to protect forestland near the Mississippi River, which eventually became the Chippewa National Forest, the first Congressionally mandated national forest. Marjory Stoneman Douglas dedicated her life to protecting and restoring the Florida Everglades. Her book, The Everglades: Rivers of Grass, published in 1947, led to the preservation of the Everglades as a National Park. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1993.

Rachel Carson brought even greater attention to the environment by exposing the dangers of certain pesticides to the environment and to human health. Her landmark 1962 book, Silent Spring, was fiercely criticized for its unconventional perspective. As early as 1963,however, President Kennedy acknowledged its importance and appointed a panel to investigate the book's findings. Silent Spring has emerged as a seminal work in environmental studies. Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously in 1980.

Grace Thorpe, another leading environmental advocate, also connected environmental protection with human well-being by emphasizing the vulnerability of certain populations to environmental hazards. In 1992, she launched a successful campaign to organize Native Americans to oppose the storage of nuclear waste on their reservations, which she said contradicted Native American principles of stewardship of the earth. She also proposed that America invest in alternative energy sources such as hydroelectricity, solar power, and wind power.

These women helped protect our environment and our people while challenging the status quo and breaking social barriers. Their achievements inspired generations of American women and men not only to save our planet, but also to overcome obstacles and pursue their interests and talents. They join a long and proud history of American women leaders, and this month we honor the contributions of all women to our Nation.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 2009 as Women's History Month. I call upon all our citizens to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that honor the history, accomplishments, and contributions of American women.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this third day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.


# # #

Last month we celebrated Black History month, which gave me the special opportunity to recognize the bold and daring achievements of African Americans, so I have chosen to transition into celebrating Women's History Month by honoring the exceptional women in President Obama's Cabinet, who have indeed impacted our history with their education, skills, accomplishments, experiences and strength.  They will certainly carry the torch for multiple dimensions of women's lives in a leadership role. 

Oh dear...here I go again talking about the Obama Administration, and I know many of you may be saying "enough already with the new President," and I do "feel" you.  However, major history has been made, and we must acknowledge, teach and share this major triumph in our history.

It is only suitable and proper to begin with the First Lady Michelle Obama - The first African-American First Lady of the United States.  Many of us know very little about Mrs. Michelle Obama, because the spotlight during her husband's presidential campaign was only on him and very rarely on her.  Sure, we know she is highly educated, an administrator, an excellent mother, and a lovely wife, but we never focused on her credentials.  Below you will find a detailed biography of Mrs. Obama.  Courtesy of www.biography.com.


Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama

First African-American "First Lady of the United States" and the 44th First Lady

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama, 44th First Lady, Lawyer, Chicago city administrator, community outreach worker and wife of President Barack Obama was born January 17, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois.

Michelle was raised on Chicago's South Side in a one-bedroom apartment. Her father, Frasier Robinson, worked for the city's water-filtration department as a city pump operator and a Democratic precinct captain, while battling multiple sclerosis. Her mother, Marian, was a Spiegel's secretary who later stayed home to raise Michelle and her older brother, Craig. The family has been described as a close-knit one that shared family meals, read and played games together.

Craig and Michelle, 16 months apart in age, were often mistaken for twins. The siblings also shared close quarters; they slept in the living room with a makeshift sheet serving as their room divider. Both children were raised with an emphasis on education. The brother and sister learned to read at home by the age of four, and both skipped second grade.

By sixth grade, Michelle was attending gifted classes, where she learned French and took accelerated courses. She then went on to attend the city's first magnet high school for gifted children where, among other activities, she served as the student government treasurer. "Without being immodest, we were always smart, we were always driven and we were always encouraged to do the best you can do, not just what's necessary," her brother Craig, has said. "And when it came to going to schools, we all wanted to go to the best schools we could."

Michelle graduated in 1981 from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School in Chicago's West Loop as class salutatorian. After high school, she followed her brother to Princeton University, graduating cum laude in 1985 with a B.A. in Sociology. She went on to earn a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1988, where she took part in demonstrations demanding more minority students and professors.

Following law school, Michelle worked as an associate in the Chicago branch of the law firm Sidley Austin in the area of marketing and intellectual property. There in 1989, she met her future husband, Barack Obama, a summer intern to whom she was assigned as an adviser. "I went to Harvard and he went to Harvard, and the firm thought, 'Oh, we'll hook these two people up,'" Michelle said. "So, you know, there was a little intrigue, but I must say after about a month, Barack...asked me out, and I thought no way. This is completely tacky." Initially, she refused to date Obama, believing that their work relationship would make the romance improper. Eventually she relented, and the couple soon fell in love.

After two years of dating, Barack proposed. "We were at a restaurant having dinner to celebrate the fact that he had finished the bar," Michelle remembers. "Then the waiter came over with the dessert and a tray. And there was the ring. And I was completely shocked." The couple married at Trinity United Church of Christ on October 18, 1992.

Michelle soon left her job to launch a career in public service, serving as an assistant to Mayor Daley and then as the assistant commissioner of planning and development for the City of Chicago.

In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit leadership-training program that helped young adults develop skills for future careers in the public sector.

Michelle joined the University of Chicago in 1996 as associate dean of student services, developing the University's first community service program. She then worked for the University of Chicago Hospitals beginning in 2002, as executive director of community relations and external affairs.

In May 2005, she was appointed vice president of community relations and external affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she continues to work part-time. She also manages the business diversity program and sits on six boards, including the prestigious Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.

Michelle Obama first caught the eye of a national audience at her husband's side when he delivered a high-profile speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate from Illinois that November.

In 2007, she scaled back her own professional work to attend to family and campaign obligations during Barack's run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Michelle says she's made a "commitment to be away overnight only once a week – to campaign only two days a week and be home by the end of the second day" for their two daughters, Malia (born 1999) and Natasha (2001). It has been reported that the Obama family has no nanny, and that the children are left with their grandmother, Marian, while their parents campaign. "I've never participated at this level in any of his campaigns," Michelle says. "I have usually chosen to just appear when necessary."

Since her husband's political role pushed the Obama family into the spotlight, Michelle has been publicly recognized for her steely, no-nonsense campaign style as well as her sense of fashion. In May of 2006, Michelle was featured in Essence magazine as one of "25 of the World's Most Inspiring Women." Then in September 2007, Michelle was listed in 02138 magazine as number 58 in "The Harvard 100," a list of the most influential alumni for the year. She has also made the Vanity Fair best-dressed list two years in a row, as well as People Magazine's 2008 best-dressed list.

Michelle Obama became the 44th First Lady of the United States on January 20, 2009.

Last month history was made once again by 4 African-American women who became the nation's first all black, all female flight crew.  They flew an ASA flight from Atlanta to Nashville.  They are captain Rachelle Jones, First Officer Stephanie Grant, and Flight Attendants Diana Galloway and Robin Rogers.  To read the details CLICK HERE!

For the next 3 weeks we will continue celebrating the great and historical accomplishments of Women...The Women of the Obama Administration!

A message from Todd Mangatal

Greetings my on-line family: 

Unfortunately, its been a while since I have had a chance to talk to you.  So you can imagine what a  pleasure it is that my schedule have permitted me to chat with you this week!  

We  have been working on a lot of exciting things here at Arious Entertainment and we have lots of electrifying things planned for the future.  For the last 6 years we have been communication with all of you through our weekly What's Happening E-Newsletters, and for us it has been extremely delightful having a forum to express our thoughts and opinions on various issues and events happening in and around our community today.  Most importantly, it's wonderful to be able to share it all by just one click of a button.  Obviously, what I have been saying for years about this internet is true, "the internet is the new frontier", because each and every day new doors of communications are opening!  

The latest breakthrough of communication is the social network.  Social networks have become one of the most popular forms of communication, and they have changed the way we communicate in a very short time.  Social networks have only become extremely popular in the last few years, and they have become essential for business and pleasure.  I'm sure many of you are members of some of the more popular social networks such as "MySpace", "Facebook," etc.  A lot of people say they are addicted to their social networks and I agree.  One can certainly become addicted, but they can also be a great tool.

After dealing with "MySpace" and "Facebook", which are large communities filled with a broad range of people from all walks of life.  We thought a targeted network for the Caribbean would be very exciting and useful in uplifting and educating.  Therefore, a few months ago we set out on a venture to create the ultimate Caribbean Social Network, and today we are proud to officially announce www.mycaribbean.us.  

MyCaribbean is a social network all about everything Caribbean.  We believe this will be a great tool to link up the Caribbean community, people, lovers of everything Caribbean, and those who would like to learn about other cultures. The possibilities are endless of what we can achieve as a team at www.mycaribbean.us.  

MyCaribbean has everything that the other networks offer, except our target is the Caribbean.  In addition to this being a great tool in promoting and exposing the vast cultures and traditions of the various Caribbean countries; this will be a place to meet new friends, and link up with old ones.  Being that MyCaribbean is a community, this means everyone are invited.  

We have been testing for the last 2 months, and the site is shaping up quite nicely.  We currently have over 400 members from around the world who represent the English, Spanish and French speaking Caribbean, which is really exciting!  We currently have over 175 videos, and over 800 pictures.  Some of the features of MyCaribbean starts with "your spot", everyone gets their own personal page that they can design the way they like.  It is a place to express and promote you.  

Since this is a social network, there are many ways to be social starting with our new "On-line CHAT" feature.  Immediately and instantly you can chat with anyone on the network worldwide publicly or privately.  Of course, this is a great way to save on long distance charges.  

Additionally, for those of you who like to express yourself, there is a "Blog" section included in your network so you can speak your mind.  There is also (1) an "Event" Section where you can list your events and invite your friends and family to attend, as well as track your RSVP's.  (2) For those of you who like to have discussions, we have a "Forum" section where you can start your discussions and others can comment.  (3) You can post your photos.  (4) Add you favorite music.  (5) Upload you favorite videos.  And (6) Start Groups on subjects that interest you.  Plus much...much more.  The best part of this...IT's FREE!  Yup, just like all the other social networks...IT IS ALL FREE!

I would like to personally invite you to come on over to www.mycaribbean.com and "MAKE IT YOURS".  See you there, and hit me up so we can become friends!

First there was My Space, then Facebook came along, and now we have My Caribbean!
