As a famous saying goes, "Never go out there to see what happens,go out there to make something happen." Simple as the sayingis, its meaning is profound and thought-provoking, which is meantto tell us that we aresupposed to be creative instead of acting as theonlooker.
Conspicuous are the impacts of being creative and I would like toexplore the following aspects. To begin with, it is to leading a team to makeconstant progress what water is to fish, which can be best illustrated by an example concerning an extraordinarybasketball player, Yao Ming. Moreover, this kind of innovation also makes it possible for anation to promote its international statusand improve the comprehensive competitiveness.
From my perspective, keeping creative is so essential thatadequate importance must be attachedto it. Only when we literally realize the key roleit plays can we become better selves in theforeseeable future.
As the most evolved creature in thisplanet，wehuman beings are in possession of two kinds of most powerfulcapability, which are listening and talking. Compared with talking,more often than not, the significance of listening is way ahead inour life.
The most typical example of the importance of talking liesin the exchange among family members. When we are accustomed totalking without listening, in the process of which we might onlyfocus on ourselves, feeling of others are ignored and even hurt.Without listening, the essential passport towardsmutual understanding, the relation among our family members may bitby bit go alienated .
Besides , listening can also promote the efficiency ofteamwork and efficiency is of the utmost consequence in such afast-tempo society.
Talking is a window through which we convey ourselves ,while listening is a door via which we understandeach other . A life without mutual listening isjust like a house without adoor. Careful listening , so atleast it seems to me , is a necessity but not a luxury in our dailylife as well asin our work .
Currently in this constantly changing world, learningbecomes a seemingly convenient but actually more complex matter. Asan old saying goes,”Learning is a daily experience and a lifetimemission”.Apparently, the meaning of this saying is that if we truly desireto learn something, we are supposed to devote our life toit.
There are several reasons accounting for this viewpoint.For one thing, learning itself is an actually complicated andpainful matter, and as a result, it is advisablefor us to commit much more time even our whole life to it. Foranother, it is exceedingly obvious that we are easy to forget whatwe learned, and accordingly, the significance of lifetime learningcannot be ignored. For example, memorizing vocabulary is commonlythe first step of preparing for an English test. However, it is pretty difficult for us to put a huge number of newwords in our mind. Therefore, we can divide these words into somegroups and spend some hours each day on it in order to remember andunderstand these words.
To sum up, lifelong learning lays a solid foundation tothe development of ourselves, and only when we realize thesignificance of lifetime learning can we understand theessence of learning.
studying the english language in an english-speaking country is the best but not the only way to learn the language. do you agree or disagree with this statement?
learning english in an english speaking country has many advantages. it is, therefore, a good idea to learn english in britain or america. however, i believe it is not the only way to learn the language.
to begin with, most students in non-english-speaking countries learn english in high schools or universities. although their spoken english is not usually of a very high standard, their knowledge of grammar is often quite advanced. this is certainly useful when later they come to an english-speaking country to perfect the language.
however, it is obviously advantageous to learn english in english speaking countries where, every day, students will have ample chance to practise listening and speaking. in addition, students can experience the foreign culture, which greatly helps understand the language. this is especially true if they choose to live with an english or american family. still, since students are taught by native speakers, their reading and writing skills will improve as well.
as every coin has two sides, learning english at home also proves effective. at home students will have less stress and fewer problems in accommodation, expensive tuition and living costs.
in conclusion, it is preferable to study english in an english speaking country, but a reasonable level of english can be achieved at home, if a student is gifted and dedicated to study.
The shortage of housing is one of the most serious problems facing many big cities in China. Though the government has spent a large sum of money on housing,the investment has not been very resultful and a housing shortage still exists. Two generations sharing one room and newlymarried couples finding it difficult to have a house of their own are still common cases. Housing shortage is a problem that requires an immediate solution.
People's attitudes towards the solution to the housing problem are different. Some suggest building more tall apartment buildings; others believe that we should develop underground housing areas. I am in favour of the former opinion. For one thing, it is cheaper to build upward than downward. For another, living underground for a long time will do harm to people's health. Above all,people are unwilling to live underground with artificial lighting and they prefer to live normally on the ground to enjoy the sunshine.
Although there may be some other ways to solve the housing shortage problem, I believe to build more apartment buildings is one of the feasible solutions to the housing problem.
Today，few people would defend the traditionalattitude to children．If you recall what happened inold days，you would be astonished at the severeand strict education for children，for instance，old—fashioned spanking was common punishment forchildren．As a result，while the parents thusestablished their own authority，the poor children would never recover from the dreadfultraumatic experience when they grew up．
However，as you know，things often go to extremes．Nowadays，parents' confidence in theirown authority has been greatly undermined．Countless articles in magazines and newspapersand tv programmes publicize childcare．When so much over—enthusiastic advice flying about，mum and dad just don't know what to do any more．In the end，they do nothing．
So from early childhood，the kids are in charge and parents' lives are regulated according tothe needs of their off spring．When the little dears develop into teenagers，they take completecontrol．If the young people are going to have a party，for example，parents are asked to leavethe house．Their presence merely spoils the fun．What else can the poor parents do butobey？
In my mind，a child certainly needs love，and a lot of it．But the excessive pe rmissiveness ofmodern parents is surely doing more harm than good．The spread of juvenile delinquency islargely due to parental laxity．Mother，believing that her little baobao can look after himself，isnot at home when he returns f rom school，so little baobao roams the street．The dividing—linebetween permissiveness and sheer negligence is very fine indeed．
Nowadays，the overwhelming influence of advertisements on media has made too many controversial social issues．Some people argue that advertisements make the audience have the similar look by driving them to buy products of the same brand．Personally，I fundamentally agree with this assertion，and my reasons will be explored as below．
Admittedly，the literal intention of advertisements is to sharpen the concept of individualism．For the purpose of distinguishing brand names，slogans and testimonials in advertisement are always full of very personalized words，including "new"，"innovation"，"uniqueness"，"revolution"，"the best"，"the only"，"the first"．It is clear that core values of these words bring people a motivation to change，and a desire to try something distinctive．Consequently，the gap between people can be broadened，because any individual is stimulated by advertisements to express their personalities by buy different items，instead of following common tastes．
However，when considering practical effects of advertisements on the society，I strongly believe they play a role of depersonalizing the audience，and the first reason is that commercials are the key tool for big companies to monopolize the market．One hand，many big companies invest billions of dollars annually in making fascinating and prepossessing advertisements to attract the public，which consistently maintains the loyalty of patrons，and cultivate good impressions of potential customers on their brands．On the other hand，small companies have too limited financial ability to afford these costly publicity campaigns，so that their names and influences continue to fade and lose consumer groups．That is to say，advertisements，an expensive privilege only for rich and big companies，help these companies exclusively occupy the market，as well as reducing the diversity of brands．In this situation，people definitely look the same，because they have no other options but buy the same—brand food，clothes and devices produced by a dominating company．
Another reason supporting this assertion lies on the fact that exposure to advertisements standardizes thoughts and tastes among audiences，especially in terms of their appearance．A typical example comes from fashion，cosmetic and shampoo commercials which highlight the close—up of images of certain model or celebrity．This is a strong brainwash by implying that images of these actors are common standards of human beauty，and then triggering massive public imitation shows round by round．In too many cases，large groups of hypnotized people，regardless of ages，careers and races，blindly follow and chase so—called iconic figures in an advertisement，mainly through buying and using the same lipstick and perfume，wearing same clothes，watch，ornaments and bag，even copying the same hair style．
In conclusion，I believe the main social influence of advertisements is to make people have the similar images apparently．Although slogans of advertisements tend to individualize the audience，the truth is that advertisements not only let big companies rule the market solely，but also manipulate the public’s minds to buy the same things．
With the modernization of the world, people’s standard of living has improved a lot. Then there appears a state of sub-health among people which poses a new threat to them.
There are some tpical symptoms for people who are in a state of sub-health. First of all, those who suffer from it often have a headache or backache. Secondly, they feel like having a rest frequently. What upsets us most is that, the situation spreading countrywide. As a result, more and more workers in big cities are harassed by it, with a percentage of 75 in Beijing, 72 in Shanghai and 70 in Guangzhou respectively.
Then how can we sovle this problem effectibely? Experts suggest that the best way to keep ourselves thealthy is to do exercises. It is also very important that people should form a good living habit, for example, getting up early and going to sleep early. Only doing so can we keep us healthy.
"Runner Fan", nickname of Fan Meizhong, who ran out of the classroom leaving his students behind during the May 12 earthquake, has caused a controversy concerning traditional Chinese values. Many people regard his action as wrong and a direct violation of teachers' responsibility and I would have to agree with them.
Firstly, it is the responsibility of a teacher to protect his students' safety by law. Being concerned solely fol his own life and leaving his students behind while fleeing violates the spirit of the law. In an emergency, each teacher is responsible for the direct supervision of his students. Furthermore, it will be of great help if they can direct the evacuation of their students to designated assembly areas in accordance with warning signals and written notification. It is out of the question that they should not remain with their students until rescue crews arrive. Secondly, teachers act as a role model for their students. The Compulsory Education Law does stipulate that “a teacher should be a model of virtue for others and should be devoted to the education of the people." Teachers not only teach students how to think, but also how to behave to support others in society. Fleeing the classroom and leaving the students behind in an emergency sets a bad example for students.
To conclude, teachers are responsible for students' safety in an emergency. Teachers are expected to demonstrate responsible behaviour and they ought to be specifically trained to deal with emergency situations. (248 words)
Should university students be rewarded for donating blood or should they do it out of altruistic reasons? As far as I am concerned, I believe that students should not make the donation merely in order to obtain rewards. Yet, institutions ought to devise some incentives to promote blood donation.
To begin with, the act in question is to help or even save the lives of people in need. In view of the notion that prize and punishment should be meted out accordingly, donors should be rewarded for their selflessness. Second, the implementation of various incentives also serves to encourage students to donate blood. As the saying goes, "One good turn deserves another." Even if donors do demand some repayment, it is utterly justified. Meanwhile, the establishment of the incentive policy also reinforces an advantageous societal system where good deeds are encouraged. Nevertheless, the foregoing points do not justify able-bodied students eschewing blood donation if no rewards are offered. Otherwise, our world would be replete with mercenary individuals; and no society can survive let alone thrive when it is corrupted with selfishness.
In the final analysis, students should make donations in an altruistic fashion".However, universities ought to present some rewards to express their gratitude. (205 words)
There are many reasons for my decision to study for postgraduate programs, one of which is the value of a master’s degree. It ensures me a secure future in a society in which college graduates in mounting numbers failed to be employed.
First, there is a recognition that a candidate with a master’s degree will have an competitive advantage over those with only a bachelor’s degree. Five years ago when college population accounted for only 30 percent of the people of the same age, it was easy for a college graduate to get a good job in any field. But now things are quite different. Second, the higher education you have, the higher salary you will receive. Just look at some big companies which compete against each other to recruit skilled personnel.
Briefly speaking, more knowledge means more opportunities. More years of academic studies will help equip you with more knowledge and skills. Then if conditions change, you can slip with comparative ease from one field into another, avoid the pain of waking up to find yourself out of a job.
omen are playing an increasingly important part in society today. in today, many women have a work. they worked as well as men playing an important part in factories. there are many women in government also. they lead other people country, and make out plans. there are many scientist slso. they event new things to improve our life.
ith the changes in their social role, women’s position in the family has been improved as well. in ancient, women’s position in family is pity. they had to looks after their children, did every how husband ordered her to do. but now it is changed. they are equal to her husband. they have the right of speaking of idea, discussion thing with her husband, do what she wants to do.
in spite of these changes, the liberation of women has not been completely realized. we also should realize, women’ likerty are limited. for example, many factories want men become its workers but the chance of women is less than men. everyone should do their best to change this condition. i’m sure, the liberation of women would be increased.
omen are playing an increasingly important part in society today. many women today are playing an important part at works that was thought only could be done by the men before. for an example. some women are not secrtary in the office, instead, they become manager of a company.
ith the changes in their social role, women’s position in the family has been improved as well. in the world today, more and more women have their own job. they get their own salary, and become more independent from their husband. with the economic situation improved, their family position is improving.
n spite of these changes, the liberation of women has not been completely realized. many husbands only want his wife to stay at home, and do house works or do some shopping. they only want their wife to be a housewife, but not a manager of a company.

from the novel, we can see that the students like read(reading) novel, at the same time, only (a) small part of students like read(reading) science and art.
the reason to(for) this is novel is intereting(interesting), students like reading it. most of the students read too much(many) major books when they have classes, so they want to read some(something) interesting (when) they have time. novel can let them relax(relaxed). so they choose novel.
i like read(reading) novel, by reading it i know a lot of things, i also relax my brains. so i choose the novel.
we can know from the picture that most of students like reading popular novel instead of reading science, poetry. from this we can know different people have different addiction to(preferences for) books.
different people have different addiction to(preferences for) books. they read different books just to meet their different needs. because different people have different meets to read the different kinds of books. from this we can also see that different people have different intentions and notions. so they choose the different things to meet their needs in every facet in life.
i like reading poetry because i think poetry can make me calm, pleased, comfort(comforted), (and) i can see many beautiful thing(things) in the poetry.
book is the source of life. when we read a book, we should not only linger on the surface of a book, but also we should(删掉) master its intrinsic. as is charted in the blank, we can see clearly that a majority of the university students in america are addictet(addicted) to the popular fiction, and a minority of student like reading the science, poetry.
why do they like reading popular novels? in my opinion, popular novel books are usually interesting, earthly, close to our lives. in contrast, science, poetry books are usually serious, dull and difficult. therefore, most of the students prefer the popular novels.
i like reading the since book（science books）. for one thing, it can make me enhance my speciality knoweledy(specialized knowledge); in addition, it can help me know the frontier about my speciality and master the newest things in since(science); thirdly, it can give a good chance to know a lot and can help me to study the useful subject when i graduate from the university.
it can be discerned that the american students prefer to read the popular novel rather than other kind of books, such as the nonpopular (unpopular) novel, the books of technology, poem and so on. the percentage of the popular novel current(currently) is about 68.2%. other kind of novels current(currently) is, reletively (relatively), about 16.8%, 8.3%, and 5.2%.
it is not hard to think out why the popular novels can attract so many students. the popular novel is interesting, and not so abstract as books that full of the mathmatic formulate(mathematic formulae). however, as university students, study is the first task for us to do. so we should pay more attention to the books about our major. fictions may color our life, but it can not be the key part of our studying life.
personally, i would like to spend my free time in reading books about my major, such as technology digests, computer newspaper... because i want do to(删掉) a good job in my subjects. fortunately, my dreams come true, meanwhile, i ve gained other things--i found（have founded）a solid basic knowledge about my major(加破折号)make me feel easy to contrive the electronic circuit which have to be done during our bachelor years. thanks to those books!
at 9:00am october 25st(25th) 2003, i saw a traffic accident on daxue road. at that time, i was on my way to school.
when i turned right on the corner, a motorbike knocked into a small car. the motorbike was red, and there are(were) two persons on the motorbike. the car was yellow. the motorbike fell down, and the two persons on the motorbike were slight injured. the (car) driver came out of the car at once, and asked about the two persons. as soon as i saw that, i made a telephone call to 110.the traffic police arrived in a short time.
according to what i saw, i thought there may be one reason leading to the accident. that was the motorbike kept too short（a）distant from the car. when the car slowed down, the motorbike couldnt slow down in time. so the accident took place.
last friday afternoon, when i was on my way home, a traffic accident took place at the crossing of shanghai road.
a pupil was knocked down by a black car when he was walking across the street. his legs were badly hurt. sever(several) minutes later an ambulance came, and the driver of the black car sent the pupil to the hospital immediately.
in my eyes, this accident was due to that the pupil broke the traffic rules. that is to say, the pupil walked across the street when the traffic lights were red. as soon as the driver saw the pupil, he stopped the car, however, it was too late. in my opinion, it was necessary to advocate people to confirm to the traffic rules. if the pupil hadnt broken the traffic rules, the accident might not have happened.
my name is liming. i am studying at college. a week ago i saw a traffic accident , which is still vivid in my mind.
it was at about 9:00 on saturday morning, june 15th, when i went out of the university to visit a friend of mine at another university. i was walking leisurely on the sidewalk when i heard a loud crash of two vehicles just at the t-junction about 10 meters away. two taxis crashed together. it was a traffic accident.
i went up and found that the two taxis were badly damaged. both hoofs were out of shape. one door of a car was knocked off and lying on the road. one driver was blooding and another was shut in the taxi. some people were trying to help the driver get out of the damaged car. one man was calling to the traffic policeman station. a lot of cars were jammed on the road.
from the stopping track on the road, it is clear that the two taxis were driving too fast. but it is just one of the reasons. in my opinion, the taxi drivers are eager to take more passengers and make a little more money. on the other hand, both drivers dont show concern for one another. both of them wanted to run in front of another. therefore, the accident is inevitable. so far, we should let the drivers keep it in their mind that a little slower, a little safer. taking care of others lives means taking care of your own life.
