  • Well, its almost 2016 and I want to begin by wishing everybody in Britain a very happy New Year. For the Green Party, were looking forward with optimism, confidence and determination. 2015 was a huge year for us. We saw our membership more than triple. We saw 1.1 million votes in the General Election, more than four times more votes than weve ever won before. We saw the return of Caroline Lucas as our brilliant Green MP. So 2016 – this is the year in which we need to turn the Green surge into Green votes and thats what were determined to do. What we need to do is, up and down the country, provide people with the real alternative. And that is what we are doing. Because so many people, up and down the country, when we look at the local council elections that are coming up, are facing local government thats totally, or almost, a one-party state. They are finding that theyre not having the tough questions asked. The local council isnt getting the scrutiny it needs. So, sure, local councils are suffering enormously under the governments hideous program of austerity, but we should always be asking: Can they do better? Can they look after particularly the more vulnerable in their community better? Can they do a better job with their local environment? So, in the Council elections, were looking to really grow our number of Green councillors across England and Wales. And then weve got the assembly elections in Wales and in London. And these are the chance where we can significantly grow our representation, win our first assembly members in Wales in what are fair proportional elections, in which people can be sure that their vote counts. If you vote for what you believe in, you can get it. And of course, our sister party up in Scotland is looking forward with real confidence and enthusiasm to the Scottish Parliament elections there. What we want, one of the things we need to be getting out of 2016, is the same kind of elections, fair proportional elections all around the county, particularly to Westminster and of course getting rid of our un-elected House of Lords. It was in 1918 when women got the vote. That was the last time we saw significant reform in the Westminster Parliament. Now, it really is time for us to think again, look again, plan again, and get real change in our democracy. To get to a situation where people know that their vote counts, they dont have to make complicated calculations about what other people are going to vote, they can simply vote for what they want and get it. Thats what I would urge everyone to make a resolution for 2016. To do your bit towards electoral reform. It is, after all, our human right to have a fair democracy that reflects our political will. And of course, in 2016, were also going to have to be defending our human rights. Human Rights Act is under attack from our government and we need to stand up and defend it. So a new year, new possibilities. Weve got a government that doesnt have a mandate for the hideous austerity that its imposing, for the disastrous environmental policies, for its threats to our human rights. This government only won the support of 24% of eligible voters. Thats no kind of mandate. Lets pledge in 2016 to ensure that we make real progress toward the real change we need, a political system that works for the common good, not just for the few of the richest and a political system that delivers a society where were living within our environmental limits. And after all, at the end of the day, thats not politics, its physics. We have to do it. We have to have real change in Britain.201601/421566。
  • Class of ! I dont think I hurt you. First Id like you to get up, wave and cheer your supportive family and friends! Im sure you can find them out there. Show your love!09级的同学们,我不认为我想要伤害你们。首先我希望大家都站起来,向持你们的亲朋好友挥手致意!我相信你们都能在人群中找到他们,把你们的爱表达出来吧!It is a great honor for me to be here today.今天我很荣幸来到这里。Now wait a second. I know: thats such a cliche. Youre thinking: every graduation speaker here said that--Its a great honor, in my case, it really is so deeply true--being here is more special and more personal for me than most of you know. Id like to tell you why.请等一下。我知道,刚才那句陈词滥调。你们可能在想:每位毕业典礼的演讲人都会说——很荣幸,但就我而言,的确字真意深——因为我来到这里,要比你们所知的大多数人都更为特别和亲切。我想告诉大家这其中的缘由。A long time ago, in the cold September of 1962, there was a Stevens co-op at this very university. That co-op had a kitchen with a ceiling that had been cleaned by student volunteers probably every decade or so. Picture a college girl named Gloria, climbing up high on a ladder, struggling to clean that filthy ceiling. Standing on the floor, a young boarder named Carl was admiring the view. And thats how they met. They are my parents, so I suppose you could say Im a direct result of that kitchen chemistry experiment, right here at Michigan. My Mom is here with us today, and we should probably go find the spot and put a plague up on the ceiling that wrote:;Thanks Mom and Dad!;很久以前,1962年寒冷的9月,这座校园有一家史蒂文消费合作社。该合作社有一间厨房,那里的天花板由学生志愿者打扫,大概每十来年才一次吧。想象一下,画面上有位名叫格洛里亚的女大学生,爬上了高高的梯子,努力地打扫那脏兮兮的天花板。一位名叫卡尔的寄宿生站在地上,对此情景钦佩不已。这就是他俩的初次邂逅。他俩就是我的父母亲。所以我想你们会说,我就是这里,密歇根大学那个“厨房化学实验”的直接成果。我的母亲今天和我们在一起,或许我们应该去找到他们相遇的地方,并且在天花板上镶嵌一块铭牌,上刻“感谢爸爸、妈妈!” /201309/255893。
  • Let me say a few words about VeriFones capabilities. They started by providing solutions in the physical world with equipment such as payment terminals. The company then moved to become an early adopter of client/server computing, developing its solution on HP 9000 servers. As the Internet has grown in robustness, VeriFone has duplicated its capabilities in the physical world with products for the ;virtual; world. v.WALLET is a PC-based payment utility that is embedded in Netscape and Microsoft browsers to allow consumers to make payments using credit cards.v.POS which stands for Virtual Point Of Sale — is software that sits on the merchants server and provides the tools for accepting secure Internet credit card transactions for a virtual store. These include real-time, on-line authorization, settlement, and other payment management functions. v.GATE is Internet gateway software that resides at the financial institution, where it manages transactions from multiple merchant Web servers. Finally, integrating these three worlds, we have created the Integrated Payment System, which is an open, client/server-based platform that enables the processing of all these forms of payment. So electronic commerce is coming of age, and its happening quickly. With the combination of HPs and VeriFones capabilities, we are driving this change.现在我简单地谈一谈有关VeriFone的情况。他们起先提供诸如付终端这样的解决方案。然后该公司转向提供客户机/务器计算,在HP 9000务器上开发其解决方案。随着互联网的迅速发展,VeriFone开始增强了其功能,研制“虚拟”世界的产品。v.WALLET (虚拟钱包)是基于PC机的付器件,被嵌入Netscape和Microsoft 浏览器,使客户可使用信用卡进行付。V.POS指虚拟收款机——是一种位于商户务器的软件,专门用于确保虚拟商店的互联网信用卡交易安全。这包括实时、在线授权、结算以及其他付管理功能。v.GATE (虚拟网关)是一种位于金融机构务器上的互联网门户软件,用于管理来自多个商户网络务器的交易。最后,将这三项合而为一,我们创建了综合付系统,这是一个开放式的,基于客户机/ 务器的平台,可处理所有这些形式的付。所以,电子商务正在成熟,而且发展迅猛。惠普和VeriFone正在联手推动这一变革。 201411/340597。
