The Impact of the Internet on the Way People Communicate Internet does exert such a profound effect on our life that it revolutionizes the way of people’s living and thinking. As is subtly revealed in the portrayal，there are parents sitting in the front of computer，who are chatting with their child on the internet. What a meaningful picture!
From my perspective, the electronic contact cannot replace face to face communication owing to the following factors. To begin with, over-reliance on electronic contact will damage the interpersonal relationship, for the cold machine never replaces a warm-hearted greeting face to face. For example, the aged parents would like their only son who works far away home to come back home more often rather than to talk with him on the internet occasionally. What’s more, face to face communication is preferable because it is beneficial to build a harmonious society, for it attaches more importance on human affection and feelings instead of convenience and speed.
Hence, it is necessary for us to use Internet in a reasonable way. After all, Internet is invented to connect you and me, and to bring conveniences to our life rather than set a barrier to keep people beyond reach. If we want to keep our interpersonal relationship more effectively, we should spend more time with them face to face in real life. Only in this way can we not only make full use of the communication tool on the net but also make our relationship tighter.
People are crossing the street looking at their cell phones and using sticks in order to see.
the Impact of the Mobile Phone in People’s Life
The thought-provoking drawing mirrors a common phenomenon in contemporary society that there is the negative influence of mobile phone. As is subtly shown in the picture，so many people are too much addicted to cell phones that they use walking sticks to see the road. What a meaningful cartoon!
It is to me that indulging in mobile phones produces native influences on body and mind. First and foremost, overusing mobile phones is detrimental to physical health for watching mobiles for a long stretch definitely impairs one’s eyesight. Suppose that a man is addicted in cell phones in
whatever situation, it will be very disadvantageous for him to concentrate on his work, learning, or daily life and is very likely to hurt him. Furthermore, overusing cell phones adversely affects state of mind. An addict may stay inside his bubble instead of pursuing other endeavors, which eventually prevents the growth of think skills.
It is high time that we took effective measures to curb this trend. I cherish a belief that cell phones themselves are good or bad and we can benefit a lot from it as long as we take a good control over them.

The Impact of the Internet on Learning
As is vividly shown above, a teacher and a pupil stand in front of a blackboard, talking about the relation of internet and education. The pupil, holding a smart-phone in his hand, questions whether he needs any other education or not, with the mastery of Google.
While the Internet has greatly impacted how to learn, education doesn’t simply means learning to acquire information because of the following two factors. On one hand, education is very inclusive, so leaning to obtain message is usually a part of it. If we overemphasize students’ability of acquiring information, we will fail to educate the young to be developed fully. On the other hand, it is only a passive way of learning to obtain information, which do not parallel to creative thinking that is essential for education.
Thus, while putting emphasis on education, we should cultivate the youngsters’awareness of obtaining the knowledge in many aspects rather than just by the internet. Only in this way, can our society be more harmonious; can our economy be more prosperous, and we, as individuals, embrace more promising perspective.
We cansee clearly from the cartoon there is a father talking with her son. Havingheard his son’s words that “Dad, I am a bit worried about disposing of nuclearweapon.”The father replies that “If you can empty the dustbin here, you cando anything”.
Just as is revealed in the picture above, the young, nowadays, just like the boy in the drawing, are prone to reach for what is beyond their grasp, but ignore the significance of doing something trivial and simple before accomplishing great feats.
There is no doubt that the symbolic meaning subtly conveyed in the picture should be given deep consideration. As we all know, a man who does not sweep a room, doesn't mention to sweep the world. In other words, the foundations of a building must be strong, or else the whole structure will fall down someday. Therefore, when it comes to the key to success, the most important thing lies in doing every tiny thing well around you.
As the saying goes, “the highest eminence is to be gained step by step.”To achieve the goal, not merely do we need ambition; we also need to realize the importance of dealing with triviality from the beginning. Only in this way can we get on the way to success down to earth.

The Importance of Learning Basic Skills
Facts about the world are waiting to be observed and discovered by people who have learned basic skills. However, few people realize the importance of basic skills. As is shown in the picture, the pupils in the class are questioning the necessity of learning basic skill such as multiplication table.
In my opinion, basic skills are the bridges reaching success. For one thing, in the everyday practice, we can use basic skills to carry out our work. For another thing, solution frequently follows a complicated route; therefore we cannot ignore the importance of basic skills, which help us maintain objective and wise.
As a result, we should take some effective steps to make people aware of the significance of learning basic skills. For instance, we can inform students that opportunities for misinterpretation and errors abound, so we must learn basic skills to cope with them. To sum up, we cannot deny it that basic skills are indispensable to our success.
The Importance of Reading Literature
In the face of various and complicated requirements of employment market, some students begin to question the significance of learning basic knowledge and skills, just as what is exposed in the cartoon above.
However, it is absolutely wrong to hold that idea. Owing to the fact that we are living in a competitive society, the development of our society demands that we arm ourselves with basic skills and up-to-date knowledge so as to keep up with the pace of our society. An investigation shows that millions of people spend time and energy grasping skills and technology so that they can keep a favorable position in job market or enhance their opportunities. While focusing on creativity, innovation, management and leadership skills, we should never forget the fundamental importance of the more basic, essential skills。
It is universally known that opportunity is important, but you could do nothing with it if you are not equipped with competitive forces, such basic reading and calculating skills, to seize it。

Education Pays, published every three years, presents detailed evidence of the private and public benefits of higher education. It also sheds light on the distribution of these benefits by examining both the increases and the persistent disparities in college participation and completion. In the three years between the publication of Education Pays 2007 and Education Pays 2010, median earnings for four-year college graduates increased more rapidly than those of high school graduates and the gap between the unemployment rates of the two groups grew. In addition to earnings comparisons, the report documents differences in lifestyles, health, and other outcomes for people with and without college education. Differences in enrollment and completion patterns across demographic groups highlight the reality that gaps in educational attainment are explained by a combination of money and other factors .
Note: Data are for persons age 25 and over. Earnings are for full-time wage and salary workers.

The above bar chart clearly shows us education pays in 2010. We see that one with higher education background earns more money weekly than those with lower ones. For instance, the college students with no degree get paid $712 per week whereas those with a Bachelor’s degree can earn $1038.
Several reasons, in my opinion, can be identified to account for this phenomenon. To begin with, compared with those with comparatively lower education degree, people who have received higher education possess considerably wider knowledge, more remarkable learning and research ability, greater innovation and most of all, resourceful social network, all of which are essential to a high-income work. Also, the higher one’s education degree is, the bigger platform he will have to show his ability. For example, his college, university, or research institute will organize various job fairs for them to communicate face to face with employers.
This phenomenon tells us that education is a worthy investment. Therefore, substantial education investment should be strengthened while we, as college students, should study harder to build our country and strive for a better life for ourselves.

On Excessive Packaging
In recent years, with the economy growing, all kinds of goods are flowing into our life. The packaging of goods becomes more and more attracting our eyes. However, the problem of excessive packaging has aroused people’s wide concern.
This phenomenon exists for a number of reasons. For one thing, the business has seen through the mind of most consumers who are face-saving, for they thought that the more beautiful the packaging of goods is, the best people like. For another thing, excessive packaging can make the majority of merchants get high profit for the cheap commodity by improving price. Perhaps the primary reason lies that the form far outweighs the content.
In my opinion, it is more advisable to focus on the quality of goods than to decorate its appearance. So, it is urgent that immediate measures should be taken to stop the situation. Only in this way can we reduce unnecessary waste and have a rational and pure shopping condition, making our money cost worthwhile.
