Quotes

...nothing particularly feminine about assembling a breakfast sandwich," said Patricia Shiu, director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance. "Stereotypes about 'women's work' and 'men's work' become harmful when they stand between qualified workers and good job opportunities."
...if the U S were taking actions, if the U S were more engaged and involved in making changes, then everybody in the world would be too," he said. "And I further claim that if we address climate change with public policies, that's one thing. But if we address it with innovation and conventions, techniques, doing more with less as I like to say, everyone else will want to follow the United States as people around the world have done the last couple hundred years.”"

We may build a 36-inch water line with the land use, where it normally needs a smaller one. Then we've embedded a lot of investment that isn't going to be used. So if we can really pretty much tie down what the developmental areas are going to contain, then as we continue to invest infrastructure we have a better idea of what (infrastructure investment the city should make)."
