As we reach toward our hopes, our task is to build on what has gone before--not turning away from the old, but turning toward the new.追寻希望的过程中,我们的根基始于过去,不能摒弃过去,更要努力创造新事物。In this past third of a century, government has passed more laws, spent more money, initiated more programs, than in all our previous history.在过去的三分之一世纪里,政府所通过的法律,所花费的钱财,以及所发起的项目,均超过以往历史的总和。In pursuing our goals of full employment, better housing, excellence in education; in rebuilding our cities and improving our rural areas;我们要实现充分就业,改善居住条件,达到优质教育的目标;重建城市和改进乡村地区;in protecting our environment and enhancing the quality of life in all these and more, we will and must press urgently forward.保护环境,提高生活质量,在所有这一切以及更多的方面,我们将要而且必须励精图治,一往直前。We shall plan now for the day when our wealth can be transferred from the destruction of war abroad to the urgent needs of our people at home.总有一天,我们用于国外毁灭性战争的财富将会转用于满足国内人民的迫切需要。现在我们就应当为这一天的到来做好准备。The American dream does not come to those who fall asleep.But we are approaching the limits of what government alone can do.美国梦不会降临于那些沉睡不醒的人们中间。 然而,我们正在接近政府单独作为的极限。Our greatest need now is to reach beyond government, and to enlist the legions of the concerned and the committed.现在的当务之急乃是突破政府的局限,去争取众多利益所关和乐于献身的人们的持。What has to be done, has to be done by government and people together or it will not be done at all.对于必须完成的事情,当由政府和人民同心协力,方可有成,否则将劳而无功。The lesson of past agony is that without the people we can do nothing; with the people we can do everything.过去的惨痛经历使我们懂得,离开人民我们就一事无成,与人民在一起,我们就无往而不胜。To match the magnitude of our tasks, we need the energies of our people enlisted not only in grand enterprises,我们的事业宏伟壮丽,因而我们需要人民的力量。我们调动人民不仅是为了投身于宏图大业,but more importantly in those small, splendid efforts that make headlines in the neighborhood newspaper instead of the national journal.更加重要的是从事琐碎而光夺目的工作,这些工作通常不会成为全国性报刊的头条新闻,而只出现于社区性报纸的头版头条。With these, we can build a great cathedral of the spirit--each of us raising it one stone at a time, as he reaches out to his neighbor, helping, caring, doing.借此我们就能建造一座宏伟的精神殿堂,我们每个人只要向自己的邻人援之以手,帮助和爱护他人,并且努力工作,就在为这座殿堂添砖加瓦。I do not offer a life of uninspiring ease. I do not call for a life of grim sacrifice.生活不是无趣,不是牺牲。I ask you to join in a high adventure one as rich as humanity itself, and as exciting as the times we live in.我要请你加入到这项伟大的事业中,惊奇充实。02/437813Speaking from the White House, the President says the violence in Libya is "outrageous" and "unacceptable," and that his Administration is looking at the "full range of options we have to respond to this crisis."

EDTDownload Video: mp4 (427MB) | mp3 (19MB) THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. Thank you, Secretary Napolitano, for being here to administer the oath --for making it official. Thank you, also, for leading our efforts to achieve comprehensive immigration reform so that America keeps faith with our heritage as both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. To Director Mayorkas and all the dedicated folks at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, thank you for your help to these men and women, and so many of our troops, to realize their dreams of citizenship.We are joined by Congresswoman Susan Davis, Deputy Secretary of Defense Bill Lynn and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Jim “Hoss” Cartwright.Most of all, to America’s newest citizens -- it is a great honor to serve as your Commander-in-Chief, and it is my greatest pleasure to be among the first to greet you as a “fellow American.” To you and your families, welcome to the White House.Today is your day -- a celebration of 24 inspiring men and women and the remarkable journeys that have brought you together on this beautiful spring morning to our nation’s capitol. The paths that led you here began in more than a dozen countries, from Peru to Poland, from Kenya to the Philippines.Some of you came to America as children, holding tight to your parents’ hands as you arrived in a new world. Some of you came as adults, leaving everything you knew behind in pursuit of a new life. And while your stories are your own, today we celebrate the common spirit that lives within each of you -- a spirit that has renewed and strengthened America for more than two centuries.We celebrate the love of family -- your moms and dads who were willing to say good-bye to their own families, their own countries, so they could have an opportunity to give you the opportunity you [sic] never had. Like generations of immigrants before them, they worked hard. They scrimped and they saved. They deferred their own dreams so that you could realize yours. So today is a tribute to their sacrifices as well. And I would ask that you join me in honoring your moms and dads and the families that helped bring you to this day. (Applause.)We celebrate the spirit of possibility -- an ethic that says if you’re willing to put your shoulder to the wheel and apply your God-given talents, if you believe in yourself and you play by the rules, then there is a place for you in the ed States of America -- no matter where you come from and no matter what you look like.201004/102324

  FATHER’S DAY 2008June 15, 2008 | Apostolic Church of God | Chicago, IllinoisGood morning. It’s good to be home on this Father’s Day with my girls, and it’s an honor to spend some time with all of you today in the house of our Lord .At the end of the Sermon on the Mount , Jesus closes by saying, “Whoever hears these words of mine, and does them, shall be likened to a wise man who built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock.” [Matthew 7:24–25]Here at Apostolic , you are blessed to worship in a house that has been founded on the rock of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior . But it is also built on another rock, another foundation—and that rock is Bishop Arthur Brazier.In fortyeight years, he has built this congregation from just a few hundred to more than twenty thousand strong—a congregation that, because of his leadership, has braved the fierce winds and heavy rains of violence and poverty; joblessness and hopelessness. Because of his work and his ministry , there are more graduates and fewer gang members in the neighborhoods surrounding this church. There are more homes and fewer homeless. There is more community and less chaos because Bishop Brazier continued the march for justice that he began by Dr. King’s side all those years ago. He is the reason this house has stood tall for half a century. And on this Father’s Day, it must make him proud to know that the man now charged with keeping its foundation strong is his son and your new pastor, Reverend Byron Brazier . Of all the rocks upon which we build our lives, we are reminded today that family is the most important. And we are called to recognize and honor how critical every father is to that foundation . They are teachers and coaches . They are mentors and role models. They are examples of success and the men who constantly push us toward it.But if we are honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that what too many fathers also are is missing—missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men . And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.You and I know how true this is in the African-American community. We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households , a number that has doubled—doubled—since we were children. We know the statistics—that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools; and twenty times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home, or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.How many times in the last year has this city lost a child at the hands of another child? How many times have our hearts stopped in the middle of the night with the sound of a gunshot or a siren? How many teenagers have we seen hanging around on street corners when they should be sitting in a classroom? How many are sitting in prison when they should be working, or at least looking for a job? How many in this generation are we willing to lose to poverty or violence or addiction ? How many?08/81862。

  Honorable judges ,ladies and gentlemen:尊敬的评委,女士们,先生们:Id like to begin my speech with a story I from a newspaper .A chinese writer visited the International Olympic Museum in Switzerland three years ago .我想以在报纸上看到的一个故事开始.三年前,一个中国作家参观了瑞士国际奥林匹克物馆.When he went to get the ticket ,he discovered that each ticket bears a design representing the city that had hosted the Olympic Games.他去买票时发现每张票上都印有曾举办过奥运会的城市的标志.He was frustrated ,however ,because the enthusiastic assistant who wished to give him one representing his country had to apologize.他觉得很失落,因为那位热情的售票员未能为他找到一张代表中国的票,而只能感到抱歉了.I thought to myself :Why cant China ,where sports have become an essential part of peoples lives ,host the Olympics?我想,为什么中国- 一个体育已成为人们生活不可缺少的一部分国家,却不能举办奥运会?Why cant China ,a country playing an important role in nearly all sports worldwide,host the Olympics?为什么中国——一个几乎在全世界各项体育运动中都有扮演着重要角色的国家,却不能举办奥运会?Why cant China ,a country playing an important role in economics and developing with a fast pace ,have a ticket of her own ?为什么中国-一个高速发展的,在经济领域中起着举足轻重作用的国家,却不能有一张代表自己的票?I believe China has plenty of reasons to be such a host and what China can contribute to the Olympics is not merely a ticket design .我相信中国有着充足的理由来举办奥运会,中国对奥运会做出的贡献将不仅仅是一张票的设计.The spirit of Olympic goes far beyond sports.It is an active way of living ,a demonstration of self-confidence and a presentation of courage.奥运精神远不只体育运动,它是一种积极的生活方式,一种自信和勇气的展示.The Olympic spirit has enlivened people in China ,especially the younger generation .奥运精神使中国人更加朝气蓬勃,尤其是年轻一代.I am a prime example.I encountered many obstacles in preparing for this speech contest,but the African swimmer Eric Moussambani was a great encouragement to me .我自己就是一个最好的例子.为在这次演讲比赛做准备时,我遇到了许多困难,但非洲游泳运动员埃里克.穆山巴尼给了我极大的鼓励.He reached the finish line long after others had,but his perseverance and courage won the applause of the audience and other competitors.其他人都达到终点后他才游完,但他的勇气和毅力赢得了观众和其他运动员的掌声.I now understand that the essential thing in life lies more in striving than in conquering.现在我明白了,生命最重要的在于争取,而不在获胜.China has 400 million youths today .If the 2008 Games can be held in China,the Olmpic spirit will be sp,enhanced, and passed down from generation to generation in the worlds most populous nation .现在中国有四亿年轻人,如果二零零八年奥运会在中国举行,那么奥运精神将在世界上人口最多的国家得发扬光大并代代相传.Moreover ,Beijings contribution to the Olympics will not only be sping the spirit within China,but also bringing rich Eastern culture to Olympics and to the world .还有,北京对奥运会的贡献不只是在中国传播奥运精神,还能将大精深的东方文化带给奥运和世界.The Olympics originated in ancient Greece ,the primary source of Western culture .奥运会起源于古希腊--- 西方文化的发源地.But the modern Olympics has become a celebration of mankind.It is an important international event and therefore needs global involvement.但现代奥运会已成为人类的一个庆典.它是一项重要的国际运动,需要全球的参与.The five-ring symbol calls not only for peace and unity in the world but also for a mutual understanding of Western and Eastern cultures.五环符号不仅呼唤着世界的和平统一,而且呼唤着西方文化与东方文化的相互理解.China is the cradle of the ancient Eastern civilization .When the Olympics steps into the new century by returning to their birthplace,中国是东方古文化的摇篮.当奥运会步入新世纪而回归发源地的时候,the next choice should be the ancient and modernized Beijing .I say this ,下一步选择就应该是古老而现代的北京.我之所以这样说,Because the Olympic needs constant enrichment from different cultures.I say this ,because I believe that the two cultures will nourish and benefit each other ,I say this ,是因为奥运会需要不同的文化来不断充实.我之所以这样说,是因为我相信这两种文化将互补充,相互充实;我之所以这样说,because Beijing is y to make all preparations necessary to host the Games.是因为北京已做好了所有必要的准备工作来举办奥运会.Beijing no longer impress the world with the Great Wall and the Forbidden City alone ;she is wooing the global community with her modern look .北京不仅以长城和紫禁城而闻名世界,她正以崭新的姿态取得全球共识.The environment ,telecommunications ,transportation,and other services are improving daily .环境,电讯,交通,以及其他设施正日新月异地发展,More important are the changes in peoples minds.More and more people have adoptetd the environment-friendly lifestyle .然而更重要的是人们观念的更新.越来越多的人们采取了对环境更为有利的生活方式.Increasing numbers of residents can speak English to the international community .These significant changes,越来越多的北京居民能与来自世界各地的团体用英语交谈.这些重大变化,both physical and mental ,and the endeavor to improve themselves ,no doubt ,will ensure a successful hosting and will enable a new Beijing to have a ticket with her name inscribed in the Olympic Museum.物质和精神这两者(的重大变化).以及提高自身的努力,无疑可以确实北京能够成功地举办奥运会,从而使新面貌的北京也拥有一张印有自己名字的票,在奥林匹克物馆占有一席之地.This ticket will not be a common ticket any more.With this ticket ,the Olympicss hosts will increase by 1.2 billions;这张票不再是一张普通的票了.有了这张票,奥运会的主办者将增加十二亿人;with this ticket ,the Olympics will have a new field to cultivate ,and this ticket will be a symbol of Chinas contribution to the Olympics.Thank you!有了这张票,奥运会将开辟出一片新领域,而这张票也将成为中国对奥运会所做贡献的一个象征.谢谢大家!Judge:Thank you very much indeed,contestant number 22,I m bringing you back to the Olympics.评委:非常谢谢二十二号参赛选手,我们还是回到奥运会的话题上去.You will guess.Im sure ,that yours was not the first presentation that weve heard today ,about the Olympics ,but you re almost the first person to say anything at all about the growing interest in modern China in competitive sports of the kind that come from western countries and from the Olmpic movement.我敢肯定,你在想,你的演讲并不是我们今天听到的第一个关于奥运会的演讲,但你几乎是第一个谈到了现代中国对来自西方国家的各种奥运竞技运动越来越感兴趣.And I wonder if you might like to say a little bit more about that and why you think it is that in modern China these kinds of traditionally western sports have become so much more popular.你能否说一说为什么这些传统的西方体育运动在现代中国越来越受欢迎?Guo Zhongbao:Thank you for your question .I think that we all know some Chinese sports.郭中宝:谢谢您的提问.我想,大家都知道中国的一些体育运动.I think that Chinese sports and Western sports have lots in common .But as for such a competitive society ,students need the sense of competition,and the Western sports emphasize more on competition .我认为中国的体育运动和西方的体育运动在许多方面有着共同点.但是这样一个竞争激烈的社会,学生要有竞争感,西方体育运动突出了这种竞争意识,So I think maybe that is one of the reasons that Chinese students like to choose Western sports.因此我认为这就是为什么中国学生选择西方体育运动的原因之一.And another reason ,I think ,it is very good for the audience to watch ,because it is competitive ,it is exciting and we have a lot of channels for that such as CCTV channel 5 and the sports section in China Daily.第二个原因,我认为,是体育运动适合观看,因为体育运动竞争性强,令人感到十分兴奋,我们可以通过许多渠道来了解体育,如中央电视台第五套节目以及lt;lt;中国日报gt;gt;体育版.So I think that these are very ...I think that why we like the Western sports is because it emphasize the competition,所以我觉得这些都是....这就是为什么我们喜欢西方体育运动的原因,因为它强调了竞争,and in the market based economy ,I think China badly needs that kind of idea.Thank you .在市场经济下,中国是十分需要这种理念的.谢谢.Judge :Thank you ,Im going to ask a more personal question .In your first presentation you mentioned that you had to overcome a lot of difficulties in order to participate in this contest.评委:谢谢.我还想问一个更私人的问题.在你的演讲中,你谈到为了参加这次演讲比赛,你克了很多困难.I wonder if you could tell us about those difficulties and what you did to overcome them.我希望你能向我们说说你都遇到了什么困难,以及你是怎样克它们的.Guo Zhongbao:Thank you .There is something wrong happen in my family and a disagreement between my father and mother .郭中宝:谢谢.我的家庭出现了一些问题.爸爸和妈妈之间出现不和.I couldnt tell because that is very personal .My mother told me that you just strive on ,work on your work and do not mention ,do ...not care about your family because the competition is very important for you .我不想说,因为这是很私人的事情.妈妈对我说,你只管继续努力,专注于自己的工作,不要管家里的事情,因为这次比赛对你来说十分重要.Besides the problem in my family I encountered many difficulties in language because I am only a second year student.除了家庭问题,我还遇到了许多语言上的困难,因为我只是一个二年级的学生.And a lot of difficulties understanding the Olympic spirit .And also ,the bidding because I m not a student in Beijing .还有在理解奥运精神上的困难.还有关于北京申奥,因为我不是北京的学生.So,to overcome these difficulties ,I really need some idea or some spirit .因此,为了克这些困难,我真的需要一些思想和精神上的鼓励.Gradually , I found that Erics spirit can support me ,because he never stop.逐渐地,我发现,埃里克精神可以给我以持,因为他从来停止过,He never quit.Because he tells us that a quiltter never wins and a winner never quits .他从来没有放弃过.因为他曾说,一个放弃者永远也不会获胜,而一个胜利者永远也不会放弃.So I think I got a lot of support from that accident .And I think that this kind of understanding was rooted in my mind .我认为我从这次事件中得到许多持.我想,这种理解将根植于我的头脑之中.Probably some day in the future ,when I have a child ,I will tell him,especially when he or she,has difficulties.也许在未来的某一天,我也有了自己的孩子,当他或她有了困难的时候,I will he or she,him or her,to learn for that accident.Thank you very much indeed.我会告诉他,无论是男孩还是女孩,我会让他从这次事中吸取经验教训.真的非常感谢.09/85159

  Fellow citizens In the presence of this vast assemblage of my countrymen I am about to supplement and seal by the oath which I shall take同胞们,值此空前盛会,我谨按照我国伟大the manifestation of the will of a great and free people.而自由的人民所明确表达的意愿宣誓就职。In the exercise of their power and right of self-government they have committed to one of their fellow-citizens a supreme and sacred trust,人民行使自治的权力与权利,赋予他们同胞中的一员崇高而神圣的重托,and he here consecrates himself to their service.我谨在此表示将为人民的事业奉献自己的一切。This impressive ceremony adds little to the solemn sense of responsibility with which I contemplate the duty I owe to all the people of the land.现在这一盛典并未给我所怀有的庄严的责任感增加多少分量,我深感自己对全体人民负有重任,Nothing can relieve me from anxiety lest by any act of mine their interests may suffer,无法从焦虑不安中解脱出来,唯恐自己有什么过失会损害人民的利益,and nothing is needed to strengthen my resolution to engage every faculty and effort in the promotion of their welfare.因而已无须任何东西来加强我的决心,使我尽职尽力为人民谋取福利。Amid the din of party strife the peoples choice was made,人民是在党争的喧嚣声中作出选择的,but its attendant circumstances have demonstrated anew the strength and safety of a government by the people.但随之而来的局势重新显示了民治政府的力量和稳定。In each succeeding year it more clearly appears that our democratic principle needs no apology,我们的民主原则日益清晰地表明其无须任何借口为自己辩护,and that in its fearless and faithful application is to be found the surest guaranty of good government.而一个好政府的最可靠保,便是忠实无畏地履行这些原则。But the best results in the operation of a government wherein every citizen has a share largely depend upon a proper limitation of purely partisan zeal and effort但是,人人参政的政府的运转要达到最佳效果,主要取决于正确限制纯粹的党派热情和尝试,and a correct appreciation of the time when the heat of the partisan should be merged in the patriotism of the citizen.以及正确估计党派热情与人民的·爱国热情融于一体的时机。To-day the executive branch of the Government is transferred to new keeping.今天,政府行政部门虽然易手,But this is still the Government of all the people,and it should be none the less an object of their affectionate solicitude.但它仍是全体人民的政府,也应当继续成为人民情之所钟的对象。At this hour the animosities of political strife, the bitterness of partisan defeat,此时此刻,政治纷争导致的敌意和党派斗争的得失苦乐应当暂告终止,and the exultation of partisan triumph should be supplanted by an ungrudging acquiescence in the popular will and a sober, conscientious concern for the general weal.而代之以对民众意愿的欣然接受,冷静而真诚地关怀大众的幸福。Moreover, if from this hour we cheerfully and honestly abandon all sectional prejudice and distrust,而且,如果从现在开始,我们能自愿诚恳地抛弃所有的地方主义偏见和不信任,and determine,with manly confidence in one another, to work out harmoniously the achievements of our national destiny,互存信任之心,和睦共事,共创我们国家未来的大业,we shall deserve to realize all the benefits which our happy form of government can bestow.就一定能够使我们完美的政府形式所赐予的全部裨益成为现实。On this auspicious occasion we may well renew the pledge of our devotion to the Constitution,值此喜庆时刻,我们再次宣誓忠于宪法。which, launched by the founders of the Republic and consecrated by their prayers and patriotic devotion,我们的宪法经共和国的缔造者制定之后,在人民的祈祷和爱国主义的热情奉献中变得日益神圣不可侵犯。has for almost a century borne the hopes and the aspirations of a great people through prosperity and peace and through the shock of foreign conflicts and the perils of domestic strife and vicissitudes.近一个世纪以来,它与伟大人民的希望和抱负共生,不仅历经了繁荣与和平,同样经受过国外冲突的震撼和国内纷争的危机,历尽人间沧桑。By the Father of his Country our Constitution was commended for adoption as ;the result of a spirit of amity and mutual concession.;我们的国父曾赞扬宪法的采纳乃是“友好和相互让步精神的结果”。In that same spirit it should be administered, in order to promote the lasting welfare of the country宪法的实施同样也应体现这一精神,以推动国家的长久繁荣,and to secure the full measure of its priceless benefits to us and to those who will succeed to the blessings of our national life.确保我们及仰承国家福惠的后代子孙最大限度地拥有这一无比珍贵的恩泽。02/435495点击此处看视频全名:Joanne Kathleen Rowling 乔安妮·凯瑟琳·罗琳笔名:J.K.

  The Prime Minister (Mr. Tony Blair): I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty to offer the cordial congratulations of this House on the occasion of Her Majesty's eightieth birthday, and to express its appreciation of Her Majesty's unfailing devotion to the duties of State, the Nation and the Commonwealth, and its warmest good wishes for her long continuing health and happiness. That the said Address be presented to Her Majesty by such Members of the House as are of Her Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council or of Her Majesty's Household. This week we celebrate the 80th birthday of one of the most respected people of our times, whose sense of duty and service has had a profound impact on our country, the Commonwealth and the world. Years before the premature death of her father and her unexpected succession to the throne, the then Princess Elizabeth publicly dedicated her life to the service of her nation, but declared that she would need the support of the country to ensure that she could fulfil that promise. She has, as we know, carried out that pledge through all the changes, both in her life and in this country, with extraordinary grace and dedication, and her people, here and across the Commonwealth, who share in the celebration of her 80th birthday this year, have responded, as she hoped that they would, with their affection and support. In a world that has been transformed in her lifetime, she has been a truly remarkable source of constancy and strength. Our country has faced tremendous trials, witnessed the horrors of the second world war and celebrated some extraordinary triumphs in her 80 years. Throughout, as part of the royal family and as the Queen, she has been a reassuring and unifying presence for her people. She has also responded to a world that has become smaller and more interdependent than ever by travelling extensively. In all, the Queen has undertaken over 256 official overseas visits to 129 different countries. Her Majesty shows no sign of slowing down. She has just undertaken her 14th tour of Australia, which included the official opening of the Commonwealth games in Melbourne. She attends hundreds of public engagements every year and is an active patron of over 620 charities and organisations. There is simply no aspect of our national life that she does not have an interest in and a deep understanding of. Her Prime Ministers have better reason than most to know and appreciate her knowledge and experience. I am the tenth Prime Minister to serve her. Like each of my predecessors, I am profoundly grateful for her wise counsel. She has superb judgment, an intuitive empathy with people and, above all, an unshakeable and profound sense of duty. It is that sense of duty that motivates her and defines her reign and, since it communicates itself unobtrusively but none the less obviously to her subjects, brings her the love of the people of this country. It is difficult in this day and age for the monarchy to balance the natural demands for accessibility and openness with the dignity and majesty of the monarch, but it is a balance that she has struck with immense skill. 19 Apr 2006 : Column 128 So I know that I speak for the whole House and, indeed, a grateful nation when I convey to Her Majesty the Queen our best wishes on her 80th birthday and say, "Long may she reign over us." 08/80544【Speech Video】The President announces that the independent commission he created for the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling will be chaired by former Florida Governor and Senator Bob Graham and former EPA Administrator Bill Reilly.

  Good morning. Christmas is fast approaching, and I know many of you are busy trying to finish up your holiday shopping. This week, we received good news about the economy that should brighten the season and keep us optimistic about the year ahead.First, the Commerce Department released figures showing that sales for America's retailers were up in November and that the increase is much larger than expected. These figures are important because for many American businesses November and December are their highest sales months for the year. So the healthy increase in retail sales is a good sign for American employers and workers.America's working families also received another bit of holiday cheer this week: We learned that real hourly wages rose by 2.3 percent over the past year. That may not sound like a lot, but for the typical family of four with both parents working, it means an extra ,350 for this year. At the same time, our growing economy continues to create jobs and that has brought unemployment down to just 4.5 percent. These numbers give all Americans a reason to celebrate: More people are working than ever before, and paychecks are going further than they used to.When you decide how to spend your paycheck, you have to set priorities and live within your means. Congress needs to do the same thing with the money you send to Washington. That was one of the clear messages American voters sent in the mid-term elections. And one of the best ways we can impose more discipline on federal spending is by addressing the problem of earmarks.Earmarks are spending provisions that are often slipped into bills at the last minute, so they never get debated or discussed. It is not surprising that this often leads to unnecessary federal spending -- such as a swimming pool or a teapot museum tucked into a big spending bill. And over the last decade, the Congressional Research Service reports that the number of earmarks has exploded -- increasing from about 3,000 in 1996 to 13,000 in 2006. I respect Congress's authority over the public purse, but the time has come to reform the earmark process and dramatically reduce the number of earmarks.Reforming earmarks is the responsibility of both political parties. Over the past year, the Republican Congress succeeded in eliminating virtually all earmarks for three major Cabinet departments. And I'm pleased that Democratic leaders in Congress recently committed themselves to support reforms that would restore transparency and accountability to earmarks. For this year's budget, they pledged to maintain current levels of spending and not include any earmarks. And they agreed to a temporary moratorium on earmarks.This is a good start, but Congress needs to do much more. My administration will soon lay out a series of reforms that will help make earmarks more transparent, that will hold the members who propose earmarks more accountable, and that will help reduce the number of earmarks inserted into large spending bills.Republicans and Democrats alike have an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to spending restraint and good government by making earmark reform a top priority for the next Congress. When it comes to spending your money, you expect us to rise above party labels. By working together to cut down on earmarks, we can show the American people that we can be fiscally responsible with their money and that we can come together in Washington to get results.Thank you for listening. paycheck : salary or wage (薪水)earmark : to reserve or set aside for a particular purpose(为某用途拨款)200703/11249

I want to thank Pastor Mays, who will be following me here shortly, for coming. I'm looking forward to hearing the choir of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, New York City, New York. It's going to be a great moment to have this East Room filled with the joy of song. So I welcome them here today.   On this day, Americans come together to thank our Creator for our nation's many blessings. We are a blessed nation. And on this day, we celebrate our freedoms, particularly the freedom to pray in public and the great diversity of faith found in America. I love being the President of a country where people feel free to worship as they see fit. And I remind our fellow citizens, if you choose to worship or not worship, and no matter how you worship, we're all equally American. (Applause.)   I think one of the interesting things about a National Day of Prayer is it does help describe our nation's character to others. We are a prayerful nation. A lot of citizens draw comfort from prayer. Prayer is an important part of the lives of millions of Americans. And it's interesting, when you think about our faith you can find it in the Pledge of Allegiance, you can find an expression of American faith in the Declaration of Independence, and you can find it in the coins in our pockets. I used to carry coins -- (laughter) -- in about 10 months I'll be carrying them again. (Laughter and applause.)   The fidelity to faith has been present in our nation's leaders from its very start. Upon assuming the presidency, George Washington took the oath of office and then added the famous plea, "So help me God." On John Adams's first day in the White House, he wrote a prayer that is now etched in marble on the fireplace in the State Dining Room, and he prayed, "May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof." Now we'll leave it to the historians to judge whether or not that happened throughout our history. (Laughter.)   During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln turned to prayer. His second Inaugural Address ed from Scripture. He stood before the ed States people and ed from Scripture. And he sought to heal a people who " the same Bible and prayed to the same God" -- his words.   As William McKinley lay dying from an assassin's bullet, one of his final words on earth focused on the Almighty. On his deathbed he was heard to say, "Nearer, my God to thee."   As American forces risked their lives on D-Day, Franklin Roosevelt delivered a presidential prayer over the radio. He asked God to protect our troops as they liberated "a suffering humanity" and he prayed for "a peace that will let all men live in freedom." When Roosevelt died, his successor, Harry Truman, said he "felt like the moon, the stars and all the planets" had fallen on him. And he told reporters: "Boys, if you ever pray, pray for me now."   John F. Kennedy attended mass in Florida during the last week of his presidency, and during the last week of his life. It was at that mass that he heard the parable where our Lord compared the Kingdom of Heaven to a mustard seed that grew into a large tree and offered shelter to God's creatures.   Three days after the worst terrorist attack on American soil, Laura and I joined our fellow citizens in prayer before the Lord. It was in the middle hour of our grief. We prayed for those who were missing. We prayed for the dead. We prayed for those who loved them. I recalled the words of a woman from New York, who said, "I prayed to God to give us a sign that He is still here."   Well, sometimes God's signs are not always the ones we look for. And we learn in tragedy that His purposes are not always our own. But we also know that in adversity we can find comfort through prayer.   Over the last seven years, our country has faced many trials. And time and time again we have turned to prayer and found strength and resilience. We prayed with those who've lost everything in natural disasters, and helped them heal and recover and build. We prayed for our brave and brilliant troops who died on the field of battle. We lift up their families in prayer. And as we pray for God's continued blessings on our country, I think it makes sense to hope that one day there may be a International Day of Prayer, that one day the national -- (applause.) It will be a chance for people of faith around the world to stop at the same time to pause to praise an Almighty. It will be a time when we could prayer together for a world that sees the promise of the Psalms made real: "Your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth."   I want to thank you all for coming. Particularly want to thank you for your prayers. You know, somebody asked me one time, when I was there over seeing the Sea of Galilee, they said, what did you think about what you were there, Mr. President? I said I have finally understood the story of the calm on the rough seas. I may have been a little hardheaded at times, but I'm absolutely convinced it was the prayers of the people who helped me understood in turbulence you can find calm and strength. And I thank you for those prayers. (Applause.) 200806/41459。

  I was there because of Billy Jean King promoting an HBO special about women in sports called “Dare to compete.” It was about Title IX and how we finally, thanks to government action, provided opportunities to girls and women in sports.我去那儿是因为比利·琼·金要在家庭影院频道宣传一个名为“敢于竞争”的体育节目。这个节目旨在宣传“第九项体育运动”,宣扬在政府的帮助下女性最终获得了参加体育比赛的机会。And although I played not very well at intramural sports, I have always been a strong supporter of women in sports. And I was introduced by this young woman, and as I went to shake her hand she obviously had been ing the newspapers about people saying I should or shouldn’t run for the Senate. And I was congratulating her on the speech she had just made and she held onto my hand and she said, “Dare to compete, Mrs. Clinton. Dare to compete.”尽管在学校时我并不擅长体育运动,但我非常持女性参加体育运动。经别人的介绍,我认识了这位年轻女士。我前去跟她握手,而她显然已经在报纸上看到了有关人们讨论我该不该参加竞选的报道。我在对她刚刚的成功演讲表示祝贺时,她紧紧握住我的手,对我说,“要敢于竞争,克林顿夫人。要敢于竞争。”I took that to heart because it is hard to compete sometimes, especially in public ways, when your failures are there for everyone to see and you don’t know what is going to happen from one day to the next. And yet so much of life, whether we like to accept it or not, is competing with ourselves to be the best we can be, being involved in classes or professions or just life, where we know we are competing with others.我牢牢记住了她的话,因为有时候竞争真的很残酷,特别是通过公开方式进行竞争,因为在那种情况下你的失败人人可见,而且你不知道接下来的一天天会发生什么。然而,这就是生活,不管我们愿意接受与否,我们总是在不断挑战自我,力争做到最好。无论是在学校还是在职场甚至是在生活中,我们也都在和别人竞争。I took her advice and I did compete because I chose to do so. And the biggest choices that you’ll face in your life will be yours alone to make.我采纳了她的建议,参加了竞选,因为我已经做出了这样的决定。最重要的选择必须由自己来抉择。

  We began the 20th century with a choice, to harness the Industrial Revolution to our values of free enterprise, conservation, and human decency.我们进入二十世纪时又有一个选择,使得工业革命能符合我们的价值观,即自由经营,水土保持,和恪守人类正义,Those choices made all the difference.这些选择使得一切迥然不同。At the dawn of the 21st century a free people must now choose to shape the forces of the Information Age and the global society,在二十一世纪曙光来临之际,一个自由的民族必须做出选择,去打造信息时代和全球一体化的力量。to unleash the limitless potential of all our people, and, yes, to form a more perfect union.去释放全民无尽的潜能,并且,去成就一个更完美的联邦国家。When last we gathered, our march to this new future seemed less certain than it does today. We vowed then to set a clear course to renew our nation.上次我们在此相聚时,我们向这个新未来的进军似乎没有今天这么明确,我们那时曾宣誓确立新的道路,复兴我们的国家。In these four years, we have been touched by tragedy, exhilarated by challenge, strengthened by achievement.在这四年中,我们感到悲剧带来的触动,挑战带来的兴奋,成就带来的增强,America stands alone as the worlds indispensable nation.美国作为世界不可缺少的国家巍然挺立,Once again, our economy is the strongest on Earth.再一次, 我们的经济是世界上最强大的经济,Once again, we are building stronger families, thriving communities, better educational opportunities, a cleaner environment.再一次,我们建设着更牢固的家庭,繁荣的社区,更好的教育机会,更清洁的环境,Problems that once seemed destined to deepen now bend to our efforts: our streets are safer and record numbers of our fellow citizens have moved from welfare to work.曾经似乎注定要恶化的问题现在也屈于我们的努力,我们的街道更安全,我们的同胞有创记录的人数已从福利走向工作。And once again, we have resolved for our time a great debate over the role of government.再一次,我们解决了当前关于政府角色问题的巨大争论。Today we can declare: Government is not the problem, and government is not the solution.今天我们可以宣告:政府不是问题的产生者,政府也不是问题的解决者,We the American people we are the solution.我们-美国人民-我们才是问题的解决者,Our founders understood that well and gave us a democracy strong enough to endure for centuries,我们的缔造者深深地了解这一点,他们给予我们的民主强壮的足以持续几个世纪。flexible enough to face our common challenges and advance our common dreams in each new day.柔韧地足以在每一新的日子里迎接我们共同的挑战并推进我们共同的梦想。As times change, so government must change.随着时代更迭,政府必须改革。We need a new government for a new century humble enough not to try to solve all our problems for us,新世纪需要新政府,虽然不能解决我们的所有问题,but strong enough to give us the tools to solve our problems for ourselves; a government that is smaller, lives within its means, and does more with less.但却有能力为解决问题提供助力,虽然规模不大,但却通过自己的方式经营,经常事倍功半。Yet where it can stand up for our values and interests in the world,如何实现自身价值,如果正确个人利益,and where it can give Americans the power to make a real difference in their everyday lives, government should do more, not less.如果让美国民众改变生活,改变命运,政府应该发挥职能,而不是无所作为。03/442465

  President's Radio Address THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Over the past few days, we have witnessed a startling drop in the stock market -- much of it driven by uncertainty and fear. Many Americans have serious concerns about their economic well-being.Here's what the American people need to know: The ed States government is acting -- and will continue to act -- to resolve this crisis and restore stability to our markets. The Federal government has a comprehensive strategy and the tools necessary to address the challenges in our economy.Here are the problems we face and the steps we are taking: First, key markets are not functioning because there is a lack of liquidity. So the Federal Reserve has injected hundreds of billions of dollars into the system. The Fed has joined with central banks around the world to coordinate a cut in interest rates -- a step that should help free up credit. The Fed has also announced a new program to provide support for a vital tool that many American businesses use to finance their day-to-day operations -- the commercial paper market, which is freezing up. As this program kicks in over the next week or so, it will help revive a key source of short-term financing for businesses and financial institutions. Second, some Americans are concerned about whether their money is safe. So the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the National Credit Union Administration have significantly expanded the amount of money insured in savings accounts and checking accounts and certificates of deposit. That means that if you have up to 0,000 in one of these insured accounts, every penny of that money is safe. The Treasury Department has also acted to restore confidence in a key element of America's financial system by offering government insurance for money market mutual funds.Third, we are concerned that some investors could take advantage of the crisis to illegally manipulate the stock market. So the Securities and Exchange Commission is launching rigorous enforcement actions to detect fraud and manipulation in the market.Fourth, the decline in the housing market has left many Americans concerned about losing their homes. My Administration launched the HOPE NOW Alliance, which brings together homeowners and lenders and mortgage servicers and others to find ways to prevent foreclosure. We're also making it easier for responsible homeowners to refinance into affordable mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Americans listening today can know that if you're struggling to meet your mortgage there are ways you can get help.These actions are helping to address a key problem in the housing market: The supply of homes now exceeds demand. And as a result, home values have declined. Once supply and demand balance out, our housing market will be able to recover -- and that will help our broader economy begin to grow.Fifth, we have seen that problems in the financial system are not isolated to the ed States. So we're working closely with partners around the world to ensure that our actions are coordinated and effective. Today, I'm meeting with the finance ministers from our partners in the G-7 and the heads of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. And Treasury Secretary Paulson is also hosting finance ministers from the world's 20 leading economies.Finally, American businesses and consumers are struggling to obtain credit. So my Administration worked with Congress to pass a 0 billion financial rescue package. This new law authorizes the Treasury Department to use a variety of measures to help banks rebuild capital -- including buying or insuring troubled assets and purchasing the equity of financial institutions. The Department will implement measures that have maximum impact as quickly as possible. Seven hundred billion dollars is a significant amount of money, and as we act, we will do it in an effective way.In the short term, we'll continue to face challenges. But in the long run, Americans have reason to be confident. We have the strongest and most resilient economy in the world. When we have faced difficult tests in the past, the American people have always risen to meet them. And that is exactly what we're going to do again.Thank you for listening.200810/52711
