4) The Fight Against Crime

Today the crime rate in some of our cities seems to be rising. Many citizens complain about the thefts and robberies which take place in their street blocks. Therefore, more and more people are appealing to the authorities to take strong measures to reduce the crime rate.

Faced with criminals, different people have different attitudes towards them. Some become so frightened that they tend to give up fighting or to turn a blind eve to the criminals. Others, however, are brave enough to fight the criminals even at the risk of their own lives. In their eyes, responsibility is the most important of all the values that hold honest people together Without it there can be no self-respect, no trust, no law-and, ultimately, no society. There is no doubt that they set a good example for all of us to follow.

As far as I am concerned, my suggestions are as follow. In the first place, every one of us should receive a law education. Secondly, criminals must be punished severely. Finally, it is urgent to set up a foundation to reward those who fight criminals. In this way we can stand up to any crime and smash it.

5) Challenges of Environmental Issues

Environmental protection has aroused great concern among people. In many cities, especially in big populous cities, environmental pollution has become really serious. For example, an urban population of 12 million and 1.4 minion vehicles in Beijing puts great pressure on resources and the environment, The underground water level in Beijing has continued to decrease in recent years due to excessive use. Coal burning, exhaust emissions from vehicles and factories also intensify the city's environmental problems. We have to pay the historical debts we owe to the environment because of early rapid economic development.

However, pollution control does not have to hinder economic development. In a sense, it is a stimulation to the economy because pollution controls motivate enterprises to aim for higher industrial standards and start a material and resource efficient production. The exhaust control on vehicles can be cited as an example. Some municipal governments require that the pollutant level in vehicle emissions be controlled to reduce air pollution. Unleaded gasoline has also been promoted during the past year. As a result, automobile and chemical factories have to enhance their production technology to meet the demand.

Now some municipal governments have also taken such measures to stop the pollution as replacing coal with natural gas, reducing dust and deforestation to improve the lives of residents. In Beijing, 30 per cent of fuel used in urban centers will come from natural gas. Low sulfur coal is replacing high sulfur coal for factories. Many small boilers and kitchen ranges in restaurants and dining halls have been replaced by gas ovens.

As we can see that the measures have been effectively combating pollution. The air sulfur dioxide density has been on the decline since this year, and the density of total suspended particles and carbon monoxide bas been kept on the same level as last year. Though the density of nitrogen oxides continues to increase because of the rising of the number of automobiles, the degree of growth has been reduced.

Despite the progress some big cities have achieved in improving the local environment, we believe that big city planners should adopt a comprehensive environmental policy, which is more important than the detailed measures and achievement.

6) Opportunities don't come often. They come every once in a while. Very often, They come quietly and go by without being noticed. Therefore, it is advisable that you should value and treat them with care.

When an opportunity comes, it brings a promise but never realizes it on its own. If you want to achieve something or intend to fulfill one of your ambitions, you must work hard, make efforts and get prepared. Otherwise, you will take no advantage of opportunities when they come to visit you.

The difference between a man who succeeds and one who does not lies only in the way each treats opportunities. The successful person always makes adequate preparations to meet opportunities as they duly arrive. The unsuccessful person, on the other hand, works little and just waits to see them pass by.

In my opinion, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone in our society, but only those who are prepared adequately and qualified highly can make use of them to achieve their purpose.

In the wave of the economic reform, many scholars and educators have realized that China's education system, especially the higher education, has to gear itself to the market economy.

First of all, the present college education system cannot meet the needs following the development of the market economy. For example, the enrollment and job assignment which are carried out in the conventionally planned manners, should be reformed.

The competition in the next century will be based on national strength and on science and technology. Therefore, training high-calibre Professional is important. Someone suggested to build 20 to 30 quality universities in a bid to train high-level professionals. But this is far from enough. If the state wants to succeed, it has to develop applied science, high-tech, inter-disciplinary sciences and engineering technology. The universities should try to readjust their syllabus in order to meet the needs of economic and social development. The reform is a long-term job. The second problem is concerning the expenditure of universities and colleges. The expenditure comes mainly from the State and the marketing of research findings: But it is not enough to rely on allocations from the state and the income of the school. Now many schools have asked the students to pay a certain amount of fees. This is workable because China's college education is not compulsory and with the improvement of people's living standards, parents are willing to pay for education, colleges can set up scholarships and students loans for outstanding students from low- income families.

From a strategic point of view, the country should increase expenditure on education. If China want to strengthen her overall national strength, the best way is to start from education.


A sane person should be at peace both with himself and with others. At work, for example, the successful businessman first creates ideas in his own mind, and then presents his plans to a committee where they can be improved upon by the wisdom of them. I believe that study also comprises the two sides of solitary work and group activity.

Wisdom always recognizes the worth of others. Firstly, there is so much to be learned from the expertise of a genuinely knowledgeable teacher. Secondly, other students can offer different perspectives of a topic. On a practical basis, friends can be useful for recommending the perfect textbook and so forth. In learning a foreign language, the student should always try to find friends who are native speakers of the target language. It is with sadness, contempt and cynical disbelief that I see a certain type of foreign student departing from a host country: by slavishly working in the library the student is awarded with high academic marks, but he or she has never spoken to a native speaker for any other reason than for petty power and financial gain. The insular academic student should remember the English saying that "no man is an island".

There is no substitute for self-study, for the solitary labor of reading and reflective thought. If a person is to master any academic subject, he must first read extensively. Until he does so, he can only contribute superficially to the group. Quiet reading encourages the student to think for himself. By thought and reflection the student begins to understand the world. Self-study (as the word implies) is also an inward 30urnev. When the student re-emerges from the forest of his own character, he gains one of the highest forms of learning-that of self-knowledge. Free from self-deceit, he is only then truly ready to create within the collective economy.

Overall, although I have argued for both methods, I prefer self-study to group interaction. Too much conversation can lapse into idleness; and weaker students sometimes attempt to take more than they contribute. Self-study is at the base of learning. Most important of all is the fact that a person has to learn about and control himself before he is prepared to present his opinions to others. Just as the businessman requires many years of experience to learn about commerce and industry so the student requires many years of reading.
