Li Ming was a chemistry major, a charmer noted for his easygoing and humorous temperament. However, his English was so poor that he always barely got by. The teacher admonished him that his poor English would be an impediment to scholarship. What’s more, she showed her trump card: if Li Ming did not work hard. She would flunk him.
He was also told that he should not learn English merely for the sake of his diploma, otherwise, even after graduation from university, he would still be semiliterate. Although Li Ming did not lose his composure, he was well aware that he had to settle down to work and follow through because his academic life was at stake.
Linda, my good friend, has received good education and is both beautiful and elegant. She was not proposed to even when she was well over thirty. The reason is that she, as a career –oriented woman, is devoted to her work. Navigating between home and the company, she had hardly any time to socialize with people of the opposite sex. Her parents were gripped by anxiety at the thought of their daughter still remaining single at such an age. They did not know what to do and even consulted with some sociologists.
But the situation began to change last month, when the headquarters of the company transferred Linda to the training department. On the new post, Linda met a man who tugged on her heartstrings for the first time. Ever since then, they dated virtually on a daily basis, and Linda realized that she would love the man beyond all reason. When she decided to take the matrimonial plunge, she informed me.
Though Linda’s love is reminiscent of the romance that we see only in movies and I don’t know what the future will hold for her, I give her my heart-felt wishes and agree readily to be a member of the entourage of bridesmaids and groomsmen.
The disingenuousness of food suppliers has become a serious issue in today’s society. Some of them defraud the public by disinformation and extolling food additives as a great achievement in food industry. They also claim that additives at a moderate level do no harm to health.
Some righteous scientists have made in-depth pathological investigations into the content and toxicity of food additives. Their findings, which suggest that some common food additives may lead to health risks if used for a long time, are regarded as a landmark event in the research of food security.
Although a gaggle of skeptics hired by food manufacturers question whether such researches are scientifically based and even deride people as timid, many consumers are beginning to pay attention to food additives and turning to natural and fresh food. Some experts promise to give testimony if any consumer charges food suppliers with racketeering.
The effect that e-mail has on our professional and personal life is mind-boggling. People thousands of mile s away from each other can send and receive detailed documents within mere seconds. This allows us to take on a multitude of projects, to pool our collective efforts in a way that wouldn’t have been possible before. It has become routine for us to correspond and exchange files with people overseas. The only obstacle is the di fference in time zones.
But on the other hand,e-mail can eat up a substantial portion of our workday.sometimes,most of the time and effort involved is going through unsolicited messages and deleting junk.However,many of the unwanted me ssages I receive are actually worth reading,so it would be reckledd to wipe them all out without further inves tigation.After all,many of the messages I receive come from coworkers and superirs.In my opinion,e-mail he lp flatten hierarchies in an office setting. It is far easier to make suggestions to our bosses via e-mail than it i s to do so in a face-to-face talk.But the downside of it is that e-mail,if misinterpreted,may result in some hurt feelings,and offenses.
E-mail can be a blessing or a curse. Used properly,e-mail offer great advantages.Used poorly,it can cause e normous trouble.
In modern societies, despite the social progress and prosperity. People always feel that there is something not quite right. However, it is hard for them to put a finger on it. A feeling of emptiness and not belonging, a lack of defined solid relationship seem to be the sources of unhappiness. People all agree on the great conundrum of personal happiness: when asked how they are, they will answer in terms of their family life and work life rather than just what they are paid. For them, the quality of life means more than the quantity of salary.
However, politicians find it hard to grasp the subject, and are flummoxed by immeasurable concepts such as the family value. As a matter of fact, the government can take a provocative role to respond to the yearning for happiness. Ultimately society’s happiness requires us all to play our part, and indeed, playing our part is part of being happy.
