I applaud Prime Minister Abe for expanding paid family leave here in Japan, an important step in addressing the modern challenges of working families and maintaining women’s attachment to the workforce.
This year, for the first time ever, the President’s Budget included a proposal to establish a nationwide paid family leave program. We know this will take time, but we are deeply committed to working with members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, to get it done and deliver more pro-family solutions to hardworking Americans.
Third, in this age of rapid technology, we must also confront the challenges of workforce development.
It is critical as we look toward the future, that we don’t allow women in the United States and around the world to be left behind by the 4th Industrial Revolution – a revolution that’s integrating robotics, computer programing, artificial intelligence, social media, and cutting-edge technologies into every aspect of our society.
As technology transforms every industry, we must work to ensure that women have access to the same education and industry opportunities as men.
Female and minority participation in STEM fields is moving in the wrong direction. Women today represent only 13 percent of engineers and 24 percent of Computer Science professionals, down from 35 percent in 1990. We must create equal participation in these traditionally male-dominated sectors of our economy, which are among the fastest-growing and most lucrative industries in the world. Over the coming decades, technologies such as automation and robotics will transform the way we work, and we want to make sure that women can lead in the economy of the future. Otherwise, not only will we fail in closing the persistent gender wage gap, we will risk reversing the hard-fought progress we have made in this fight.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right down in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith that I will go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
And this will be the day, this will be the day when all of Gods children will be able to sing with new meaning, "My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrims pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring!" And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
All the students:
Hello everyone. The Black Mamba is a deadly poisonous snakes, why do I take this name? Because I once entered the stadium, Im deadly, like the black mamba. So there I can make fun of, but once I entered the stadium, I would like to change a person, be absorbed in the court.
I am 35 years old, is reached after the half occupation career, like some injury is It is quite common for the. Once injured, you feel the world stopped, whether injured knee, shoulder injury etc.。
I know a lot of people so that the entire occupation career is ruined, and some people even unable to get up after a fall, cant even return. When that moment, I will look at yourself in the mirror and say, "Kobe, what would you do? If you experience this pain will you? "You know that every time I see someone injured, I met a lot of people do not come back after the injury, I looked at myself in the mirror to oneself said," Is it right? Should stop playing? "I dont know myself can also return. Im here to tell you, I want to completely recovered and returned to the stadium. But I wouldnt bet on it, because a lot of the time I also have doubt, but I think, which is to meet the challenges of the significance.
To seize every opportunity, you prove yourself to all people, that you can meet the challenge. To those who say you can never succeed, you will fail to prove, this is my opinion. If someone says to you of the injury, to be unable to get up after a fall, for me, if somebody this injury may quit, but Kobe cant. People say that you can not, I would say, you so that you may exit. So I must prove to them, especially to those who support me, love of my fans, I must win, to win the pain, will be able to return. In order to let all of the doubters think again, what will become impossible possible. The importance of these scars represented here, these scars is my growth transition 。
As a player, I was born with a passion is to succeed, want to win. At the same time is also the most difficult thing in life is the most important thing. As a player, go up to meet the greatest challenge to the stadium, I think the biggest challenge is to get the people to become as one, constantly, constantly victory, this is the biggest challenge of team sports, this is also my passion. For me personally, the most important thing is to continue to meet the challenge, but never fear challenges is very important.
But more important is to keep curiosity about things, such as how to play better, how to improve skills, how to learn from them what. Actually I have been looking for me from the aspects of motivation factors, not only from the Michael Jordan body, from the magician Elvin Johnson, also from Michael Jackson, Beethoven, Da Vinci, Bruce Lee, these great people gave me encouragement, let me go, so this is the black mamba the spirit of. Does not mean that you should continue to attack others, but you must never stop the pace of progress. Life is Knowledge has no limit.， so learning becomes extremely important. Do you want to continue learning, learning, learning, and others, understanding, learning, and not think you understand what.
Only in this way, you can become a better person, your skills in order to further improve the. Finally, there will be a byproduct, become a champion, a better myself. For me this is the black mambas spirit, at the root of my spirit. So if I can pass on the spirit to all of you, no matter what you want to do, to become a basketball player, a writer or host, no matter what you dream, you must adhere to dream, to learn from successful previous experience and knowledge, successful people from all walks of life, their body there are some features that make them successful, talent showing itself, this is just what I want to transfer to the positive energy you.
In the east of China, there is a small city---Haimen. I was born there. Today, I am telling you about my hometown.
Haimen is not farfromShanghai. It’s at the mouth of the Changjiang River.
Haimen is a modern city. There are lots of high buildings in it. Most of us live in flats. We like to live in flats because we can be close to our friends. In the center of Haimen, there are many shops. You can buy some nice things here. Things in most shops aren’t expensive. You can pay a little money and they are yours. My hometown is a beautiful city. On each of the roads, there aresome big trees and nice flowers. The roads are also very clean. They make people happy and comfortable.
The seasons here are very nice. I like autumn best. It’s neither hot nor cold. A poem says “Flyer of summer come to my window to sing, then fly away. And yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, just fall there with a sign.” It’s very cool.I love Haimen. It’s a nice place to live. Welcome to my hometown.
