In recent years, with the increasingly fierce competition, more and more people are bearing great pressure from study, work and life. Under great pressure, many people begin to become sad, hopeless and finally suffer from depression.
Depression has brought great bad influence on ones study, work and life. In fact, depression affects not only ones mind but also his body. Those with severe depression even are unable to continue their work or carry out normal activities. The symptoms mainly include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, not wanting food and trouble sleeping. Besides, depression is linked to many other diseases, like heart disease. Whats worse, depression is one ofthe main courses of peoples suicide.
Considering the bad effects of depression, it must be taken more seriously. For those patients with depression, first of all, it is important to accept treatment timely instead of covering or ignoring the disease. Besides, people should learn to release pressure and keep a pleasant mood. ActuaUy, the best treatment is a combination of medication and psychological help. Only in this way can people reduce the chance of suffering from depression or get rid of it.
According to a recent survey, in the last few years, quite a number of young people have chosen to quit their demanding but highly-paid jobs. Although they may have their own respective reasons, I dont think their decisions are wise in reality.
Its true the case is not unique. Some people choose to do something less competitive so that they can lead a comfortable, easy life that a highly-paid job cannot obtain. They are afraid that the stresses and strains of work will rob them of joy and happiness and do them harm both physically and mentally. In fact, however, stress isnt the bad thing it is often supposed to be. A certain amount of stress is vital to provide motivation and challenge, and to give significance to an idle life. People under stress are likely to express their full range of potential and to realize goal of a human life.
Stress is a natural part of everyday life and there is no way to avoid it. What we can do is to learn to deal with it rather than to escape from it.
In the past, a great many people used to use disposable plastic bags for shopping and other purposes. However, the excessive use of disposable plastic bags has led to great damages both to environment and to peoples health.
On the one hand, it takes about 200 years for a buried plastic bag to decompose and be absorbed by the soil. On the other hand, the use of disposable plastic bags will indirectly do harm to peoples health, which is less known to the public. Sometimes people buy hot food packed into disposable plastic bags to save the time and labor in washing their dining utensils. Yet they are not informed of the chemicals in the bags will release in high temperature. Therefore, they are eating the poisonous stuff while enjoying the tasty food.
Its enlightening and significant that our government has banned the free provision of disposable plastic bags in supermarkets. Trial practice has shown considerable reduction in the consumption of bags. In a word, fewer plastic bags will bring us the sustainable development of our earth.
Its no doubt that university campuses will produce a large amount of rubbish every day, however, there are fewer college students paying attention to its classification.
Factually waste separation is vital to create an environment-friendly campus. Firstly, waste separation does great contribution to the environmental protection. Since some of waste is recyclable, while other is unrecyclable, if all the students could voluntarily differentiate recyclable rubbish from unrecyclable rubbish, the risk of the environmental pollution will be greatly reduced. Secondly, waste separation could save a lot of energy and tirne on its processing.
With the rapid increase in the amount of rubbish at the campus, rubbish classmification does not permit of any delay. On the one hand, as the well-educated people, college students should act as hosts of the universities and separate waste from this moment in their daily life. On the other hand, university authorities should strengthen students awareness of environmental protection and guide students to separate waste in a reasonable way.
Nowadays more and more parents are eager to send their children to study abroad before they finish high school by whatever means and at whatever cost.It is quite understandable for parents to send their children to study overseas because they place high expectations on their children. They are encouraged by the success stories of those who have completed their overseas study.
With the development of economy, companies and institutions at home are giving more and more emphasis on overseas experiences, too. Consequently, pursuing overseas study became a kind of short cut in gaining a better future. Moreover, there is still one underlying reason for this rush-economic reason. The rapid economic progress in the past few years in China has enabled more and more parents to afford the huge cost for their children’s overseas study.As for me, overseas study is surely a helpful way to get both advanced knowledge and necessary experiences, but overseas study at an early age is neither necessary nor benef1cial. The students may be too young to either tend for themselves or think for themselves. I do think that overseas study can contribute to one’s self-improvement, but it’s better to be pursued after one has finished his college study at home, when he is more capable of learning and living on his own.
During the SXSW trade show, which ran from March13 to 15, ofo reportedly received a lot of interestfrom potential collaborators among the USexhibitors, users or even governmental agencies.
The company plans to adopt localization measures inaccordance with regional laws and regulations, as wellas the preferences of local users.
A low price of 50 cents for half-hour and the convenience of being able to "pick up and parkbikes wherever you want", have given the company the edge on its American competitors, suchas BCycle and Spin.
The founder of Mobike, another Chinese bike-sharing leading company, also attended a sharingsession at the SXSW Trade Show to introduce the enterprise to overseas audiences.
Unlike ofo’s ambitious overseas plan, Mobike is being more cautious, expressing no intentionof entering the US market for the time being.
As for the bigger picture, the company expects to steadily and gradually operate in Singapore,beginning with a "soft-landing" first, said Mobike founder Hu Weiwei in an interview with ThePaper.
Thank you all. Thank you very much. With the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, we observe one of the great traditions of our nations capital. And throughout the Christmas season, we recall that Gods love is found in 1)humble places, and Gods peace is offered to all of us. Laura and I are pleased to be with you at this Christmas Pageant of Peace, and we thank you all for coming as well.
I want to thank Barbara for hosting this event. (Applause) I want to thank all the 2)entertainers for making the night such a special evening, thank you all for coming. (Applause) I want to thank Peter and the board of directors and the production team for organizing this fine event. I appreciate Santa coming. (Laughter) Looks like he needs a belt for Christmas. (Laughter) Finally, I want to thank all the good people of the National Park Service. (Applause) The National Christmas Tree is a living tree and the Park Service looks after it every single day of the year.
For nearly 80 years, in times of calm and in times of challenge, Americans have gathered for this ceremony. The simple story we remember during this season speaks to every generation. It is the story of a quiet birth in a little town, on the margins of an indifferent empire. Yet, that single event set the direction of history and still changes millions of lives. For over two 3)millennia, Christmas has carried the message that God is with us - and, because Hes with us, we can always live in hope.
In this season, we celebrate with our families - and deeply miss family members no longer with us. Thousands of families in our nation are still grieving over the terrible losses that came to them last year on September the 11th. We pray for their comfort. We pray for the comfort for everyone who has lost a life this year.
Our entire nation is also thinking at this time of year of the men and women in the military, many of whom will spend this Christmas at posts far from home. They stand between Americans and grave danger. They serve in the cause of peace and freedom. They wear the uniform proudly and we are proud of them. (Applause)
Laura and I wish every American family the blessings of this season, happy holidays, and a merry Christmas. And now we have the honor of lighting the National Christmas Tree. And joining us, weve got two new friends, Samara Banks and Ben Schneller, to help us light this tree.
Now, if everybody - you all step up here - (laughter) - get ready. Please join us in the 4)countdown: Five, four, three, two, one. (Applause)
The use of translation apps is becoming increasingly popular. Why? Admittedly, in the contemporay society, an increasing number of people, with the help of translation apps, find it convenient to read foreign literature or essays.
On the one hand, these apps can bring users greater efficiency and help them save more time or energy, particularly for those who have no knowledge of a foreign language. For instance, a host of people may have a variety of difficulties or troubles in learning English, but with the assistance of these apps, it will not be difficult for them to read and understand English materials. On the other hand, it is these apps that cuase some learners to lose motivation for studying. With Apps in hand, they are not willing to do their utmost to memorize new words, pratice speaking or writing skills every day. Fianlly, they will fail to get a good command of any foreign language.
I, as a college student, deem that it is of great necessity for youngsters to use translations apps in a rational way. We should bear in mind that any translation app is merely a tool. Provided that one intends to master a foreign language, it is advisabel to practice each day instead of relying on translation apps.
We are all called upon to make a speech at some point in life, but most of us don’t do a very good job. Here are some suggestions on how to give a good speech.
First of all, it is important to plan. Do your homework. Find out everything you can about your subject. And, at the same time, find out as much as you can about your audience. Who are they? What do they know about your subject? Do they have a common interest? Why are they coming to hear you speak? Put yourself in their shoes as you prepare your speech. Just remember: be prepared. Know your subject, your audience, and the occasion.
Let us suppose that you have been asked to introduce the main speaker at a meeting. First, find out the most important and interesting things about the speaker. Then, summarize this information in a few words. Remember, you are not the main speaker; you are introducing the main speaker.
If you are giving a lecture or explaining an idea, gather as many facts as you can on your subject. Spend plenty of time doing your research. Then spend plenty of time organizing your material so that your speech is clear and easy to follow. Use as many examples as possible, and use pictures or charts if they will help you make your points more clearly. Never forget your audience. Don’t talk over their heads, and don’t talk down to them②. Treat your audience with respect. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
If you follow these simple steps, you’ll see that you don’t have to be afraid of public speaking. In fact, you may find the experience so enjoyable that you ask to make more speeches! You’re not convinced yet? Give it a try and see what happens.
With the development of national economy, a worrying social problem also arises——people can trust each other less and less, especially strangers.
This phenomenon will bring many unfavorable consequences. First and foremost, peoples life will lose a lot of fun since they become cautious all the time. What makes matters worse, the general expense of doing things rises abruptly as a result of the fact that people dont want to help strangers. FinaUy, if this matter is not properly settled, it will pose a threat to national education.
It is high time that we called on the efforts from all sides to deal with this problem properly. For one thing, the government should make all efforts to create a harmonious social atmosphere. For another, teachers should seize every chance to stimulate affection and unselfishness in the hearts of the students. FinaUy, the mass media should also play a positive role in restoring mutual trust.
No matter whether this problem is a natural result of social development, it is important that we find a satisfactory solution to it in this social transformation era. (181 words)
