Technology has dramaticallychanged our world, stretching its legs to all walks of life. As is humorouslydepicted in the drawing, a boy holding a cellphone in his hand is asking hismother with great surprise. Since his phone can solve all the problems for him,he argues, is it still necessary to go to school?

Funny as it seems, thispicture poses us a controversial question: “can technology replace traditionalschool learning?” For centuries, our Chinese have adhered to the public wisdom:school where education is provided is indispensable in our development.Nevertheless, there is a growing recognition that technology plays an extremelyimportant role in our study, which we can hardly ignored. Nowadays, whenchildren have questions, “baidu”instead of “teacher” will be the first to cometo their minds.

To my knowledge, schoollearning should go hand in hand with technology. While cell

phonesdo help in solving school problems, they cannot have answers to all thequestions, such as “how to become a real man”, “how to make real friends”.Schools can shape our personality and allow us to adapt to the real world.

How impressive the cartoon is in describing themost widespread social phenomenon concerning the independence of the children.Let’s take a closer look at the drawing, the girl told her mother she wasaccepted by the university of her mother’s choice with pride. The author’s realpurpose is not the drawing itself, but to lead us to secure what hides behindthe picture.

What are the reasons for it? In thefollowing sentences, I’ll venture to explore the reasons. To start with, theonly-one child policy in China has made more and more parents pay muchattention to their children that they would like to replace their children todo everything. In addition, parents don’t believe that their children haveenough ability to deal with their personal matters and make any decisions.

There are some suggestions given to ourparents. For one thing, it is quite important for our parents to realize thattheir children will grow up and have their own ideas as time goes by. Foranother, children should be encouraged to make some decisions alone so thatthey are able to pursue what they really want. I contend that our parentsshould give their children a free hand in some matters to help them to beindependent.

This picture vividly describes that theperson uses a computer in the whole day even when he falls asleep at night.What the cartoon conveys is the impact of computers on people.

New products are being invented everyminute of every day, all of which will hold sway over people in some respects.However, in all these technologies and products, computers have exerted themost important influence on people. Some people assert that computers have madelife more complex and stressful, while some people believe that computers havemade life easier and more convenient. Now many of my classmates like to surfthe Internet in their free time. I think Internet can bring us both advantagesand disadvantages. For example, if I have some trouble studying

I can surf the internet to find more helpful information. However, Internet can make someproblems at the same time.

In a word, in spite of the fact thecomputer appears to have made life more complex and stressful, I feel that the advantages are more obvious, which have become an integral part of everyday life.

TheBritish are supposed to be famous for laughing at themselves. But even theirsense of humor has a limit. As the British retailer JR found out to his cost.When R took over his father’s chain of 130 jeweler shops in 1984, he introduceda very clear company policy, he decided that his shops should sell down marketproducts at the lowest possible prices. It was a great success. The Britishpublic loved his cheap gold earrings and his tasteless silver ornaments. By1991, R company had 2,400 shops and it was worth over 680 million pounds. Butin April of that year, JR made a big mistake. At a big meeting of top Britishbusiness people, he sold up an explain the secret of his success. "Peoplesay, how can we sell our goods for such a low price? I say, because they'reabsolute rubbish." His audience roared with laughter. But the Britishnewspapers and the British public were not so amused. People felt insulted andstayed away from R shops. Sales failed and 6 months after his speech, R shareprice had fallen by 42 percent. The following year, things got worse, and JRwas forced to resign.

Lookingat the basic biological systems, the world is not doing very well. Yet,economic indicators show the world is prospering. Despite a slow start at thebeginning of the 80s, global economic output increased by more than a fifthduring the decade. The economy grew, trade increased, and millions of new jobswere created. How can biological indicators show the opposite of economicindicators? The answer is that the economic indicators have a basic fault. Theyshow no difference between resource uses that sustain progress and those usesthat will hurt it. The main measure of economic progress is the Gross NationalProducts -- GNP. In simple terms, this totals the value of all goods andservices produced and subtracts loss in value of factories and equipment.Developed a half century ago, GNP helped establish a common way among countriesof measuring change in economic output. For some time, this seemed to workreasonably well, but serious weaknesses are now appearing. As indicatedearlier, GNP includes loss in value of factories and equipment, but it does nottake into account the loss of natural resources, including non-renewableresources, such as oil, or renewable resources, such as forests. This basicfault can produce a misleading sense of national economic health. According toGNP, for example, countries that overcut forest actually do better than thosethat preserve their forests. The trees cut down are counted as income but nosubtraction is made for using up the forests.
