De Blasio used his state of the city address to speak broadly about New Yorkers' struggles to pay rent and make ends meet and discussed recent proposals, rather than lay out many new proposals. De Blasio, a Democrat who took office in January 2014, is up for reelection in November. Held at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, home to numerous American musical legends including Billie Holiday, the program featured at least 45 minutes of introductory remarks that were a mostly a love story to the city's diversity. "So many people in this city are afraid they cannot stay in the city that they love," because of high costs, de Blasio said. De Blasio cited a long list of what he considers some of his biggest accomplishments, including the implementation of neighborhood policing and the highest ever four-year high-school graduation rate of 72.6 percent in 2016. He said residents would hear in coming weeks more details of forthcoming proposals about homelessness, opioid addiction and the creation of more higher paying jobs, which he called the "next frontline." He said the city would strive to create 100,000 more permanent good รองเท้าวิ่งผู้ชาย jobs that pay at least $50,000 a year. Last week, de Blasio released information about other proposals that he touched on in his speech, including ways to help seniors and low-income people afford housing by adding new units and providing more rental assistance. He said previously that he would seek to add 10,000 apartments for households earning less than $40,000 a year, half of which would be reserved for seniors, while another 500 would be for veterans. De Blasio referenced another element of the plan announced last week to help more than 25,000 older residents with rent of up to $1,300 a month through the city's "mansion tax," which he has proposed before. "You will hear people say it cannot be done," de Blasio said of the tax. "They will say you cannot get it through Albany," using the state capital to refer to the state government, whose approval would be required for the tax.

But the film? Not so much Has Hollywoods need for the feel-good factor done Margot Shetterleys book and the history of Nasas black women mathematicians a disservice? Still from the film Hidden Figures, directed by Theodore Melfi. Photograph: Allstar/20TH CENTURY FOX Marie Hicks is a historian of technology at Illinois Institute of Technology. Monday 13 February 2017 02.50EST Last modified on Monday 13 February 2017 06.40EST In the opening scenes of Hidden Figures , released in the UK on Friday, we are introduced to Dorothy Vaughan played with verve and wit by Octavia Spencer as a pair of legs sticking out from under the bonnet of a broken-down car. One detail immediately stands out: Vaughans legs are light beige and shiny. She is wearing stockings that dont match her skin tone, presumably because that was all that was available to her. Related: Hidden figures: the history of Nasas black female scientists Although the scene goes on to establish the deep racism of the time in more direct ways, the small detail of the stockings tries to put viewers in the shoes of someone like Vaughan. It reminds us how these women were made to feel like outsiders in their own country in small and large ways, even as they helped the nation succeed on the global stage. In writing history, the devil is always in the details. Margot Shetterlys groundbreaking book, Hidden Figures , reorients our view of the space race by telling the stories of Nasas black women mathematicians.
