Even people born after 1968 can easily name the first man to land on the moon; we have all seen the black and white footage of Neil Armstrong in a space suit taking slow, bounding steps to plant an American flag on the moon’s surface. Now, forty years later, some might suggest that governments should continue exploring outer space, and should even devote a healthy amount of money from their budgets to this end. However, the needs of our world have changed, and we must prioritize our spending accordingly and allocate our financial resources to helping the Earth itself.
When we consider the exploration of outer space that had its heyday in the 1950’s and 1960’s, we must also consider the political factors that were present here on Earth. During the Cold War, countries like the United States and the Soviet Union were interested in displaying their intellectual, scientific and financial resources, and outer space became the arena in which this took place. The ‘‘Space Race’’ culminated in 1968 when the United States landed the first astronauts on the moon. Space exploration was of the extreme interest to ordinary citizens, but was connected to themes of national strength and patriotism.
Now, as we consider whether to continue the exploration of outer space, our world is faced with a different set of circumstances. Governments are less preoccupied with their standing in the world, and more interested in the well-being of those who live in it. The greatest threat to our well-being is our damaged environment, and this is a concern of the entire world. For example, pollution caused by factories in South America might contribute to rising water levels in Bangladesh. Space exploration would require a great outlay of money on equipment, personnel and fuel; instead we must allot our financial resources toward cooperating with other countries to improve the environment and help make life more bearable for our fellow citizens on earth.
In summary, those who were alive during the Age of Exploration of the 1950’s and 1960’s can remember the excitement of that era; the scientific findings of those missions to outer space have provided precious insights into the universe beyond Earth. However, one of the goals of governments pursuing space exploration was to provide a show of strength for their countries. Now, the best way a government can show its strength is to show that it cares for its fellow citizens around the world.
Correct spelling is a basic skill in English study. However, nowadays many students do not pay much attention to it.
They have their own reasons for misspelling. First of all, they like an easy way of studying, which causes some omissions and changes in spelling. Second, the teachers might not be very strict in students spelling. In China, teachers seem to be more concerned with grammar and vocabulary but not spelling.
To change this situation, in my opinion, the teachers and the students should work together. On one hand, the teachers should give more attention to students spelling, asking the students to be conscious of the importance of correct spelling from the very beginning of their English study. On the other hand, the students themselves are supposed to be aware that correct spelling is a must in English study.
To sum up, correct spelling is so important that both students and the teachers should spare no efforts to achieve correct spelling.
The past aristocracies invented a lot of activities to make fun out of boredom,however, the problem of dealing with boredom may be even more difficult for such a future mass society than it was for latter, for example, ritualized their time;there was a season to shoot grouse,a season to spend in town, a season to hold a lot of parties, masses are more likely to replace an unchanging ritual by fashion which it will be in the economic interest of certain people to change as often as , the masses cannot go in for hunting,for very soon there would be no animals left to hunt.
For other aristocratic amusements like gambling, dueling, and warfare,it may be only too easy to find equivalents in dangerous driving,drug-taking, and senseless acts of seldom commit acts of violence,because they can put their aggression into their work,be it physical like the work of a smith,or mental like the work of a scientist or an role of aggression in mental work is aptly expressed by the phrase “getting one’s teeth into a problem”.
Social Practice of College Students
Nowadays a large number of and organize students to take part in social practice activities. During theholidays, students in mounting numbers choose to be the volunteers, take part-time jobs, ortake part in other practical activities alike. It is obvious that social practice is playing anincreasingly essential role in China’s college education.
Undoubtedly, college students have benefited a lot from social practice. Above all, they areprovided with more opportunities to contact the real world outside campus. What is more, insocial practice activities, students can apply their theoretical knowledge to the solution to thepractical problems. So their practical skills are improved greatly. Besides, social practice helpsstrengthen students’ sense of social responsibility.
Considering the above-mentioned, it is necessary for college students to participate insocial practice. However, social practice may bring some problems. For example, somestudents spend too much time in taking part-time jobs so as to ignore their study. Hence, weshould try to balance the relationship between social practice and study.
Thirdly, modern conveniences such as radio, TV, internet, various vehicles and labour-saving machines in the home, all greatly facilitate human communication, transportation and housework as well.
Nevertheless, living in the 21st century also has its disadvantages. The most serious one is the increasingly polluted environment; air is filled with smog and water is contaminated by iehemicals from main disadvantage is the personalization of human relattonships which mostly result from people’s ever-increasing contact with machines and numbers. Still one more disadvantage is the weakening of spiritual values. An undeniable fact is that a large number of people are solely interested in materialistic culture,while neglecting spiritual civilization. Limited by space, we have to skip the examples.
In conclusion, although the 21st century has indeed given us a lot of advantages, it may not have made us wiser, because it has also made our earth dirtier, our people less humane, and our spirituali iife poorer, We shpuld continue to enjoy the benefits of technological advancement,however, we must
make a concerted effort to preserve our natural environment for future generations. Moreover, we should take the time now to make our lives more meaningful in anihcreasingly impersonal, computerized world.

it can be discerned that the american students prefer to read the popular novel rather than other kind of books, such as the nonpopular (unpopular) novel, the books of technology, poem and so on. the percentage of the popular novel current(currently) is about . other kind of novels current(currently) is, reletively (relatively), about , , and .
it is not hard to think out why the popular novels can attract so many students. the popular novel is interesting, and not so abstract as books that full of the mathmatic formulate(mathematic formulae). however, as university students, study is the first task for us to do. so we should pay more attention to the books about our major. fictions may color our life, but it can not be the key part of our studying life.
personally, i would like to spend my free time in reading books about my major, such as technology digests, computer newspaper... because i want do to(删掉) a good job in my subjects. fortunately, my dreams come true, meanwhile, i ve gained other things--i found（have founded）a solid basic knowledge about my major(加破折号)make me feel easy to contrive the electronic circuit which have to be done during our bachelor years. thanks to those books!
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Living in the 21st century(生活在21世纪的优缺点)
Living in the 21st century offers certain advantages,such as a higher standard of living, but it also has some disadvantages, such as a polluted environment.
To begin with, most people now have more money for less hard work. They earn higher salaries than before and enjoy better social security, such as social welfare for laid-off workers and disability insurance.

Save the Energy Resources
Recently,it is reported that oil price in the intemational market has been skyrocketing China, many traditional mineral cities in northeastem China has run into predicament,with their economy collapsed and workers unemployed,only because coal has been mined out.
Unlike sunlight,water and wind,fossil energy resources,including coal,oil and gas,are not practically reproductive during human history. Once consumed,they're gone they were to be exhausted before we could find sufficient resources to replace them,we would have to live in entire blackout again,which is of course not what we would like to see.
Therefore,we must economize on energy techniques should be developed and applied to reduce energy consumption in industry and daily energy should be employed wherever possible. Any practice that wastes energy should be eradicated.(140 words)

Limiting the Use of Disposable Plastic Bags
In the past,a great many people used to use disposable plastic bags for shopping and other excessive use of disposable plastic bags has led to great damages both to environment and to people's health.

omen are playing an increasingly important part in society today. in today, many women have a work. they worked as well as men playing an important part in factories. there are many women in government also. they lead other people country, and make out plans. there are many scientist slso. they event new things to improve our life.
ith the changes in their social role, women’s position in the family has been improved as well. in ancient, women’s position in family is pity. they had to looks after their children, did every how husband ordered her to do. but now it is changed. they are equal to her husband. they have the right of speaking of idea, discussion thing with her husband, do what she wants to do.
in spite of these changes, the liberation of women has not been completely realized. we also should realize, women’ likerty are limited. for example, many factories want men become its workers but the chance of women is less than men. everyone should do their best to change this condition. i’m sure, the liberation of women would be increased.
