Greetings On-Line Family


Happy Easter to you (our on-line family)!!!!  Thanks to you, in the past few weeks we have really been witnessing the positive effects of our "Weekly What's Happening" e-mail, because many of you love receiving them, and supports the items, and events we advertise.  Due to your overwhelming support, we thought we should take some time this week to talk about the services we offer, maybe you will need our marketing services in the future.  The price of our services are quite reasonable and very affordable.  If you have a product, service or event you would like exposed to our on-line family contact us at ariousentertainment@earthlink.net to find out how.  Keep in mind that our e-mail blast reach over 35,000 people around the world, and it's the greatest and fastest way to spread the word about what you are trying to promote.

I'm really excited about how this has come together, and even though we were down for several months last year due to all types of circumstances beyond our control, many of you have stayed loyal and expressed to us how much you missed receiving the information.  Well, this is about our 3rd year and we started with zero, currently we have 35,000 subscribers nationwide, and is growing daily.  Actually, who knows how many more people are see the e-mails because of forwarding and things like that.  It pleases me greatly when I receive responses from our blast from folks all over the world.  It was a great pleasure this week to get an e-mail from Melvin Jackson, Jr., from HBO's "The Wire" and who also has appeared on Chris Rock's "Everybody Loves Chris".  He has been a part of our on-line family for some time now.

The services we offer seems to be needed in our community!!!  When this started we had no idea it would grow into such an essential and appreciated service.  We were working with a group of musicians out of Bermuda and we were brought in by Qadree El Amin from South Paw Entertainment to do marketing on this venture.  At that point, we felt the best way to market the group were through e-mail marketing, and not through the usual flyers, radio, print (they were old in this time), and we needed something new and more effective - THE INTERNET and E-mail Marketing..."The portal to the world"!!!!  Now, we had something brand new, once we thought about it, put it on paper, it could be transmitted immediately to folks around the world.  From that point on we developed a website, continued building by promoting a few parties, products, etc., began speaking our mind through our commentary and our list grew and grew.  The rest is history, we now have some direction for the next few years, because we see how popular this has become.   

If you know our goals, then you know it's promoting Caribbean Music and Culture, this Internet is the prime vehicle to do so, and to bringing the community together through communications can be accomplished!!!

Rapid Increasing Gas Prices!

by Susan Mangatal

These high gas prices are becoming quite annoying.  How can us (consumers) be protected from these pricing cruelty?  You may recall the gas prices began slightly increasing when we went to war, but really began skyrocketing last year when hurricane Katrina hit and devastated America's gulf coast (in late August.)  We were told then due to the oil refineries being destroyed and damaged, prices will be increasing and will continue increasing substantially.  Even though we were concerned we accepted it, because we were more worried about helping the many who lost members of their families, their homes along with everything they owned, and how we would begin helping with the rebuilding from the damages the coast sustained.  However, when we eventually "had enough" and began complaining and letting our voices heard, we were promised that there were no price gouging by the oil companies, however oil companies profits had risen substantially.  So how was that possible if there were no gouging?    Meanwhile, it was reported that Exxon Mobil raked in 10.71 billion in profits (42% from 2004), what thieves!!!   I read some time ago that "The National Consumer group called on Congress to investigate uncompetitive practices by oil companies, curb energy companies' price-gouging by implementing a windfall profits tax and enact strong fuel economy standards to curb demand and save the environment" .  

I truly hope something is done about the rapid increasing prices.  We the American people need to let our voices be heard again.  We cannot sit back and allow these ridicules prices continue getting higher and higher.  I'm sure many are struggling due to these increases, and are experiencing financial hardships.  

Last month locally a gallon of gas averaged $2.33, now (a month later)  we are paying approximately $2.73.  Actually, nationwide a gallon averages $2.79, and it is expected to reach highs up to $4.00.  We have got to do something to solve this major problem, so let me know what your thoughts are, and how these rapid increases are affecting your family and most importantly your life.
