As the drawing presents, there is a man walking across the street absorbedly focusing on his cell phone without noticing the surroundings. This sort of phenomenon is not uncommon and rare in some metropolis, especially among the youngsters.
What the picture illustrates is the prevailing situation that has long existed in today's China. That is the mobile phone obsession. With the advent of information age, people are becoming
increasingly fascinated on the electronic products, especially the cell phones. Not surprisingly, you could easily notice that most of us are obsessed in sending messages, playing online games with their mobile phones. It cannot be denied that this phenomenon may negatively impact the relationship among people, and therefore they will become estranged and isolated.
Personally, in view of the overuse of mobile phones, I hold that we individuals should raise the necessary awareness that good relationships are reinforced by sincere and face-to-face communication.
The Impact of the Internet on the Way People Communicate
Due to the wide use of computers and the development of Internet, more and more people like to chat on the Internet. We tend to pay more attention to electronic communication than to face-to-face contact.
As electronic communication is not limited by space, we can chat with others where there is Internet with our tools such as computers, mobile phones and pads. However, when we chat with others online, we cannot express our feelings fully. Just as the picture shows, the parents cannot touch or hug their child. We know that body language plays an important role in our communication, but the electronic communication cannot do this. For example, when we are sad, we need more love and warmth, a real hug from our parents or friends can mean much more to us than just words through electronic communication.
Therefore, though electronic communication brings convenience to our life, I still don?t think the electronic communication can replace face-to-face contact.
Once a child asked such a question: What can I benefit from being "a good child"? Among the many answers he received one ran like this: "A good child" is the most precious gift God gives to you. And the same can be said for being honest. It pays to be honest.
Yes, it's true that dishonesty exists almost everywhere in the society. Consumers often found themselves being blackmailed by those merchants selling shoddy products; and there are students
Cheating in order to pass the exams or get high marks; moreover, we are not short of examples that many rich professionals evade the taxes by sacrificing the interests of government.
But haven't we seen their results? "A fall into the pit, a gain in customers' wit", which would surely drive those dishonest merchants out of business. Regret of wasting time yet being
Empty-handed would accompany those dishonest students all their life. On the contrary, we could have all they lost, especially a good reputation and a clear conscience, which are the best qualities of human beings. That's why we say "It Pays to Be Honest".
The first snow came. How beautiful it was, falling so silently all day long, all night long, on the mountains, on the meadows, on the roofs of the living, on the graves of the dead! All white save the river, that marked its course by a winding black line across the landscape; and the leafless trees, that against the leaden sky now revealed more fully the wonderful beauty and intricacies of their branches. What silence, too, came with the snow, and what seclusion! Every sound was muffled, every noise changed to something soft and musical. No more tramping hoofs, no more rattling wheels! Only the chiming of the sleigh-bells, beating as swift and merrily as the hearts of children.
The winter holiday is coming. I am very excited. I want to better my holiday plan. Now let me tell you my plan.
I’m going to read some books and listen to music and relax for a few days first. On the fifth day, I’m going to do my homework. Of course, I’m also going to do some housework. Lunar New Year’s Day, I’m going to take a trip with my parents. I think it must be very happy. I can hardly wait! In the first six days of February, I’m going to visit my relatives. It’s going to be fun! After a few days, I’m going to finish my homework, because I am going back to my school on February 16th.
From the sixteenth of January to the seventh of February is our Winter Holiday. I think everybody did a lot of things in the Winter Holiday. But I didn’t. Let you to listen to my story of Winter Holiday.
I spend a lot of time on the homework.. Every day in my Winter Holiday, I always got up late. Then I listened to the tape, it was nine o’clock. Then I ate breakfast and then I did my homework during the daytime! I’m not very slow but the homework was too heavy!
I’m unlucky on the playing too. I played firecracker but I hurt my finger with the fire. I ‘m careless to kindle the firecracker, so I’m very unlucky.
I still unlucky on my friend’s party. In the morning, I wanted to get up early but I woke up at 10:50. After ten minutes, the party would start! So I only eat a piece of bread then I go to my friend’s home! And I stay at his home for a long time when I came home. My mother and father were very angry and they scolded me!
I’m worried and feel unlucky on my weight. Last term, I was 48 kilogram but now I am 51 kilogram! I must to do banting!
But most important, I have gone to Shanghai Ocean Aquarium, I want to go there very much because I want to see the horse, the monkey……in the sea. Now I’ve done it . It is a bright dot in my Winter Holiday.
Nowadays it is common to encounter a scene when people want to see things happen but can‘t make things happen for various reasons. The most important reason is that they just refuse to create and innovate. With the accelerated pace of our society,more and more people recognize the importance of creation that is bound to make a difference in social productivity.
As far as I am concerned,we should all have the notion of being the participants of supporting creation. First of all,creation is the most vital factor to improve the inner competitiveness of our nation. For another,it is certain that creation is so essential that enables many people to find their positions in the company and careers in their lives.
Measures are also needed to encourage creation . First and foremost,the government should establish certain rules to sweep up the obstacles of invention. Some people have already complained much about complicated procedure of patent applications or high fees to do experiments of inventions. Additionally,high schools and universities can provide students with scholarships or overseas learning opportunities,which will stimulate more youngsters to join the group of invention and innovation.
In the winter vacation life I have seen such a story to share with you:
Boone smile day, boone to visit a client, but unfortunately, they didnt reach an agreement. Boone very upset, come back later told the story to the manager. Tell the manager listened patiently boone, silent for a moment and said, "you might as well go again, but should adjust their own state, always remember to smile, use your smile to impress each other, so that he can see your sincerity."
Boone to try to do it, he behaved himself very optimistic, very sincere, has been permeated with a smile on his face. Results each other have also been infected by boone, they happily signed agreement.
Boone have been married for 18 years, every morning to go to work. Busy life let he forgot his beloved wife, he seldom smile to his wife. Boone decided to give it a try and see what difference smile will bring their marriage.
The next morning, boone comb my hair looked in the mirror is smiling at frail, the scowl on his face. When he sat down to eat breakfast, he greeted Mrs. With a smile. She amazed, very excited. In this two weeks, boone felt more happiness than in the past two years.
Boone often sincerely compliment, now stop talking about their needs and annoyance. He tried to see things from other peoples opinions. All this really changed his life, he gained more joy and friendship.
This story gave me the message, do anything to adjust their own state of mind, always remember to use the smile, set each other, play with your smile so that he can see your sincerity. A smile can bring warmth, friendship, can bring happiness. So in the work, life will smile to face, in a good state of mind to treat people and things around.
Let my little niece winter vacation homework today, she readily agreed, she took out a pile of books from the school bag and book, Ill ask her winter vacation homework you have so much? She said, "yeah, were going to do winter vacation homework book, write a complete book of the words and it is each line, and a day to write a diary, and mathematical complete book of exercises to do." After hearing her answer I am a little consternation, winter vacation in only a month off, how can have so much homework, but also for second grade children.
I will be in our school children compared with them, find our school children is luckier. We only require students to finish winter vacation homework book, and then make a happy years of China pictorial. Especially happy Chinese New Year posters produced, it can let the student to understand the traditional culture, and cultivate their ability, but also let them learn in life, found in the life, and why not? So that the students didnt feel much homework, at the same time also can get harvest, so now there are a lot of local education system needs reform indeed, society needs is to be able to adapt to social development talent, not only can keep the book a nerd. So these are thought-provoking!
Since the first day of my winter vacation, I’ve decided to make it a valuable and enjoyable one. I made a plan to finish my homework within the first week, and after days of hard working, I actually got all my assignments done a day earlier. I am pretty proud of myself for not —as usual —hang out with my friends until the last few days of my vacation and rush through my homework.
In the rest of my winter vacation, I made up my mind to improve my reading skills. I’ve had tons of books that I simply bought and put them on my shelf, wishing some day they would be finished themselves. But this time, I realized I was not trying my best last term and decided to make some change. I finished a couple of novels and watched some classic movies, I also went to a library to borrow some new books for next term. The more I read the more enthusiastic I became, and now I’ve developed my reading skills a lot.
Another event in my winter vacation is that I went to hiking with my parents. It was a warm, sunny day, which is pretty precious during winter time. I can still remember the scene when we drove
