  • Protecting Homeowners, Protecting the EconomyREMARKS BY THE PRESIDENTAT THE SIGNING OFTHE HELPING FAMILIES SAVE THEIR HOMES ACTAND THE FRAUD ENFORCEMENT AND RECOVERY ACTEast Room4:38 P.M. EDTTHE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody -- good afternoon. Please, everybody, have a seat. Everybody have a seat. It is wonderful to see all of you. Four months ago today, we took office amidst unprecedented economic turmoil. And ever since that day we've worked aggressively across all fronts to end this crisis and to build a new foundation for our lasting prosperity. Step by step, I believe we're moving in the right direction.I know my administration will be judged by various markers. But there's only one measure of progress that matters to me, and that's the progress that the American people see in their own lives, day to day, because right now, despite progress, too many Americans are hurting. They're Americans desperate to find a job, or unable to make ends meet despite working multiple jobs; Americans who pay their bills on time but can't keep their heads above water; Americans living in fear that they're one illness or one accident away from losing their home -- hardworking Americans who did all the right things, met all of their responsibilities, yet still find the American Dream slipping out of reach.Now, much of what caused this crisis was an era of recklessness where short-term gains were too often prized over long-term prosperity. And too often in our nation's capital, we said the right words, we patted ourselves on the back, but ultimately failed to do what we were actually sent here to do -- and that is to stand up to the special interests, and stand up for the American people. Well, standing up for the American people is exactly what we're doing here today with two bills that I'm about to sign -- The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act, and The Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act. These landmark pieces of legislation will protect hardworking Americans, crack down on those who seek to take advantage of them, and ensure that the problems that led us to this crisis never happen again.Thanks in large part to some of the men and women here, both onstage as well as in the audience, each bill passed by overwhelmingly bipartisan majorities. But we wouldn't be here without the leadership of my good friend, Chris Dodd. And I want to thank him and Senator Richard Shelby. (Applause.) Chris and Richard Shelby over on the Senate side; and then on the House side, Chairman Barney Frank and Representative Maxine Waters -- have done a great job. (Applause.) And I want to thank Senators Patrick Leahy and Chuck Grassley, as well as Representatives Conyers and Bobby Scott for leading the way on the fraud enforcement bill. (Applause.)These two laws, together with the comprehensive credit card reforms that I hope to sign later this week, represent fundamental change that will help ensure a fair shake for hardworking Americans. And I think it's important for people to understand the significance of this week. This has been one of the most productive congressional work periods in some time. And I am grateful to have Harry Reid here, as well as Nancy Pelosi, who could not be here, and the other key members of Congress for assigning these measures the urgency that they deserve and that the times demand.Let me talk a little bit about the housing bill. The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act advances the goals of our existing housing plan by providing assistance to responsible homeowners and preventing avoidable foreclosures. Last summer, Congress passed the HOPE for Homeowners Act to help families who found themselves "underwater" as a result of declining home values -- families who owed more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. But too many administrative and technical hurdles made it very difficult to navigate, and most borrowers didn't even bother to try.This bill removes those hurdles, getting folks into sustainable and affordable mortgages, and more importantly, keeping them in their homes. And it expands the reach of our existing housing plan for homeowners with FHA or USDA rural housing loans, providing them with new opportunities to modify or refinance their mortgages to more affordable levels.Because many responsible renters are being unfairly evicted from homes that go through foreclosure because the owners haven't been paying their mortgages, it requires banks to honor existing leases, or provide at least 90 days notice for renters on month-to-month leases.05/70673。
  • Ladies and Gentlemen, Id planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for mourning and remembering. Nancy and I are pained to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger. We know we share this pain with all of the people of our country. This is truly a national loss.Nineteen years ago, almost to the day, we lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But weve never lost an astronaut in flight. Weve never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps weve forgotten the courage it took for the crew of the shuttle. But they, the Challenger Seven, were aware of the dangers, but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We mourn seven heroes: Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together.For the families of the seven, we cannot bear, as you do, the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss, and were thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones were daring and brave, and they had that special grace, that special spirit that says, ;Give me a challenge, and Ill meet it with joy.; They had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served all of us.Weve grown used to wonders in this century. Its hard to dazzle us. But for twenty-five years the ed States space program has been doing just that. Weve grown used to the idea of space, and, perhaps we forget that weve only just begun. Were still pioneers. They, the members of the Challenger crew, were pioneers.And I want to say something to the schoolchildren of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttles take-off. I know its hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen. Its all part of the process of exploration and discovery. Its all part of taking a chance and expanding mans horizons. The future doesnt belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and well continue to follow them.Ive always had great faith in and respect for our space program. And what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We dont hide our space program. We dont keep secrets and cover things up. We do it all up front and in public. Thats the way freedom is, and we wouldnt change it for a minute.Well continue our quest in space. There will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews and, yes, more volunteers, more civilians, more teachers in space. Nothing ends here; our hopes and our journeys continue.I want to add that I wish I could talk to every man and woman who works for NASA, or who worked on this mission and tell them: ;Your dedication and professionalism have moved and impressed us for decades. And we know of your anguish. We share it.;Theres a coincidence today. On this day three hundred and ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama. In his lifetime the great frontiers were the oceans, and a historian later said, ;He lived by the sea, died on it, and was buried in it.; Well, today, we can say of the Challenger crew: Their dedication was, like Drakes, complete.The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and ;slipped the surly bonds of earth; to ;touch the face of God.;Thank you. /201205/182066。

  • 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。
