Barack Obama is about to deliver his South Carolina victory speech, and here is the text of his remarks as prepared.
Over two weeks ago, we saw the people of Iowa proclaim that our time for change has come. But there were those who doubted this country’s desire for something new – who said Iowa was a fluke not to be repeated again.
Well, tonight, the cynics who believed that what began in the snows of Iowa was just an illusion were told a different story by the good people of South Carolina.
After four great contests in every corner of this country, we have the most votes, the most delegates, and the most diverse coalition of Americans we’ve seen in a long, long time.
They are young and old; rich and poor. They are black and white; Latino and Asian. They are Democrats from Des Moines and Independents from Concord; Republicans from rural Nevada and young people across this country who’ve never had a reason to participate until now. And in nine days, nearly half the nation will have the chance to join us in saying that we are tired of business-as-usual in Washington, we are hungry for change, and we are ready to believe again.
But if there’s anything we’ve been reminded of since Iowa, it’s that the kind of change we seek will not come easy. Partly because we have fine candidates in the field – fierce competitors, worthy of respect. And as contentious as this campaign may get, we have to remember that this is a contest for the Democratic nomination, and that all of us share an abiding desire to end the disastrous policies of the current administration.
But there are real differences between the candidates. We are looking for more than just a change of party in the White House. We’re looking to fundamentally change the status quo in Washington – a status quo that extends beyond any particular party. And right now, that status quo is fighting back with everything…...

Constructive Speach

...Constructive Speech What determines the outcome of someone’s life? Is it the choices they make or is it the situations they have been placed into? Good morning Mrs.Gittins, mediator, scores, my opponents, my colleague and audience. My partner and I agree on the fact that Willie is most definitely not to blame for the situation he has ended up in. In Willy’s case the outcome of his life is based on the situations he was placed into. We believe this is due to the fact that during his childhood years a father figure was not present. Also, Willy’s wife Linda Lowman clearly understood that her husband was mentally unstable but she decided to turn a blind eye and deny just like the rest of society and pretend as if everything were okay. In the play, Willie’s character is a tragic hero and an unconscious victim. He sees the world around him changing and his own inability to change with it seals his fate. The audience learns that Willie strongly believes that success is not what you know, but who you know and how well you are liked. At one point in time Willie was a very successful salesman, when Howard’s father ran the company. Many promises were made between Willie and Howard’s father across that desk in the office. Despite the fact that Willie worked hard his entire life, and was rewarded very little, the promises that he believed in for all his years of work and strived towards fell through. Now that he is old and not able to keep up at the pace he used to Howard......

American Presedents and Their Speach

... Кино – одно из самых молодых и в тоже время одно из самых массовых искусств. Потенциальный зритель в первую очередь обращает внимание на то, что его интересует, а потому название – это ориентир при выборе фильма. Исходя из этого, можно сделать тот вывод, что написать, придумать яркий и правильный заголовок – определенное искусство. Но не меньшее искусство – правильно перевести название фильма, чтобы оно было равноценно исходному названию. Для этого необходимы не только отличное владение иностранным и родным языком, но и определенные экстралингвистические знания и творческие способности. Однако производство кинолент на западе поставлено на поток, новые фильмы появляются очень быстро, вследствие чего переводчики не всегда уделяют достаточно внимания и сил на то, чтобы их перевод был качественным. Эта проблема особенно характерна для перевода названий фильмов, когда зачастую они искажаются российскими кинопрокатчиками при переводе. Вместе с тем, комплексный анализ переводов кинозаголовков показывает, что зачастую изменения обусловлены влиянием культурно-языковой специфики страны, где выходит в прокат иностранный фильм. Анализ переведенных названий фильмов позволяет выявить три стратегии, к которым прибегают российские переводчики, работая с названиями фильмов.Первая стратегия основана на прямом переводе англоязычных названий фильмов на русский язык. В основном, такой стратегии подвергаются названия фильмов, где отсутствуют непереводимые культурноспецифические компоненты......

Term Speach

...Ladies and Gentlemen, I beg for your attention. You will want to hear what I say, as it concerns your freedoms. First of all, I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.... The aeroplane and the internet have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Eventually, my voice will reach millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who......

Portia's Mercy Speach

...Portia’s speech “The mercy speech” In this famous speech, Portia is dressed as a doctor of law, and has taken the identity of a young lawyer named “Balthazar” She tries to plead with the Jew (Shylock) to have mercy on Antonio, however she says that mercy cannot be forced, that it must come freely, and compares it to a drop of rain falling from the sky. She explains to Shylock, that mercy is something so beautiful and pure that it is really its own reward, she goes on to say that mercy is not only a blessing on the person receiving it, but also a blessing on he who shows mercy. Portia then tries to convince Shylock that it is a mighty symbol that could be shared by him and king’s alike, that mercy suits a king even better than his crown. This is something very powerful to say, as a king’s crown is the very symbol of his power and respect. She explains the power of the king’s sceptre, that it is the symbol of his authority over all, that it is the most prized symbol of kings, that it is so special it leaves all in awe of the monarch’s strength and authority. However she adds that mercy is in itself more powerful even than this awesome symbol of strength. She says that mercy is something cherished by all king’s and that it is the one true symbol of strength. By saying all of this she hopes to give Shylock the impression that he will show true inner strength and will be respected just by showing mercy. She then goes a level above that of kings, by saying that it is an attribute...

International Trade and Finance Speach

...Exports: Chrysler, Ford and GM are the top automotive manufacturers in America. When the top three automobile manufacturers began to see a decline in their sales, shortly afterwards it lead to a trade deficit and soon after that a drop in employment (Thompson, 2010). When America cannot sell goods to other countries this causes a surplus of domestic goods. In the case of automobiles if there is a surplus there production will slow and eventually stop. This will to the lay-off of workers and the potential to close manufacturing facilities. Trade deficit is when the goods the U.S imports are greater than the total it exports. The automotive industry is one of the categories where the U.S. ran a trade deficit in 2011 (Amadeo, 2012). As companies are unable to sell the surplus that has accumulated, and workers are no longer working, the economy goes deeper into debt. The trade deficit is a negative impact to the U.S economy. The U.S. buys more than it produces and foreign countries are lending money to the U.S. However, when these countries ask to be repaid the U.S. might not be able to pay it back. Imports: A high exchange rate encourages imports. In the case of the Italian clothing company if they import clothing into the United States and the United States does not have the money to pay it creates a deficit to the company. As Americans purchase more imported items such as Italian clothing, it is taking money out of the US economy and adds to the......

Without their invaluable assistance I would not have been able to have completed this work. i SUMMARY Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) are crucial to the operation and development of the Internet.

As this risk threatened the potential of the Internet, various jurisdictions opted to promulgate legislation that granted ISP’s safe harbours from liability. The South African......

...MR JOE MACKENZIE 50 Surry St, Knightbridge West London Sunday, 5 August 2012 Dear Joe I just want to let you know that Jules and I have arrived at Santa Clara University, California in the United States of America. I can’t believe that I am actually here. It is all thanks to you that I made it here. Without your support, I could not have convinced my parents to let me travel here and have this amazing opportunity. As you know, my parents are very religious. They are Hindus and both grew up in India. They wanted me to be a doctor or lawyer but thanks to you I may get the chance to be a professional football player! My parents did not think soccer was suitable for girls to play. They would never have considered that it could be a career for me. They thought it was unsuitable for girls to wear shorts and reveal their legs. When my Dad saw me play football one day when I had gone to play without permission, he realised that it was important to me. My Dad told me that when he arrived in England, he was made fun of because he wore a turban and was not included to play cricket with the other kids. I guess my Dad did not want me to suffer like he did and so because you persuaded him, he let me come here. My parents did not just want me to be a homemaker, they did want me educated and wanted me to have dreams but soccer was not one of them. I guess because I am the youngest in my family, my parents were even more protective of me. As you know, my older......

...Imagine standing in a long line, in a hot, crowded courthouse, why are you there? Are you there to renew your driver’s license? Are you there to get new tags for your vehicle? You’re not there to renew your license, or get new tags for your vehicle, you’re there to VOTE. Ignore the crowd around you and keep in mind that you are there for a great reason. As a registered American voter, I would like to share with you the 4 steps for voting, show you the importance of voting, and encourage you to become a registered voter. Let me take you back to a critical time in America’s history. Let us begin by talking about the time or the civil war. It started in 1861. By the time of the Civil War, most white men were allowed to vote. In 1869, the 15th Amendment guaranteed the right to vote to black men, with most women of all races still unable to vote. Before the civil rights movement, which started in 1955, only free, rich, white men who owned property could vote. Although freed African Americans could vote in four states, white working men, almost all women, and all people of color were denied the right to vote. There is no doubt that people lost their lives fighting for rights to vote. People have lost their lives for us to vote in war. Also, some people performed courageous acts on their own to try and prove a point and died. Who fought so hard for us to vote? Women and men who supported the cause fought. Susan b Anthony, perhaps the most well-known women’s......
