北京赛车pk10单吊技巧www.qqomk.com.cn,  拒绝粗俗网络流行语不是杞人忧天  “君要臣死,臣Facebook”“baby无耻”“无可phone告”“无shake击”“无fuck说”……不知什么原因,这种中英混杂的词语最近突然开始在网络上流行起来,在朋友圈和微博上更是随处可见。这里既有语言修辞的文学问题,又有作者和写作时代的历史问题,还有学术思想的学派归属等哲学问题。

The Administration of President Donald Trump has placed a focus on women's economic opportunities, empowerment and entrepreneurship.

That's because even though there is no better way to strengthen the economy than to boost women's participation in the workforce, still, too often women face barriers to success. One persistent problem is women's lack of access to digital technology, said USAID's Senior Coordinator for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment, Michelle Bekkering.

“In developing countries it is estimated that 70 percent of women-owned small and medium size businesses are still denied access to the capital they need. Nearly one in two women are shut off from the internet.”

“In all of our conversations we're recognizing that technology is ... the great equalizer. Technology is offering us... an acceleration of impact in areas where change had been taking a very long time,” said Ms. Bekkering.

Unfortunately, even as the world becomes ever more digital, women and girls lag far behind boys and men in access to technology, particularly the internet. “If you look right now at the gap around the world, 1.7 billion women in the developing world are still unconnected to the internet. And so if you look at the figures – [the] Intel[Corporation] has predicted that if you could even bring 600 million women online, that could add an average of between 13 to 18 billion dollars in GDP to 144 developing countries,” said Ms. Bekkering.

Although this is a common problem globally, the reasons for the digital gender gap vary. A recurrent one is high costs of mobile phones and service. In the developing world, some 200 million fewer women than men own a mobile phone, the most common means of Internet access there.

USAID is looking at solutions to bring down the costs, such as offering two SIM cards for the price of one, and using-solar powered charging stations in off-the electric grid regions. We are also working with people who live under these conditions who have a lot of great ideas for improvements.

“USAID,” said Senior Coordinator Bekkering, “is working to break down these barriers to allow women the opportunity to achieve their full potential.”
