The Digital Age
Living in the digital age, we are unavoidably exposed to all kinds of digital products, such as digital camera, digital computer, digital television, and so on, which grow in an increasing categories and quantities. Believe it or not, look around yourself and you can easily find one or two of these stuffs.
Here is a question，what kind of influence do the digital products bring to people’s life.? Frankly speaking, these modern digital products offer us a more convenient life than before. For example, the digital camera makes it possible to delete or correct the “unsuccessful” photo of ours, which was impossible with the traditional camera. While, unfortunately, these fashionable digital items have cultivated a generation more isolated from the real life. It is hard to imagine that a man so accustomed to the digital mobile on-line chatting can be capable of the practical communication with others. Finally, too much dependent on the digital things, human seem to be more indifferent to the real world, which we, though reluctant to admit, have to accept.
Thus, as the generation assailed by all kinds of digital miracles, we might as well initiatively avoid some of them despite efficiency and comfort they can supply. Don’t forget those old days when you were going to visit an old school friend though there would be a long train journey, which, in today’s digital era, has been thoroughly replaced by the digital on-line chatting.
Should One Expect a Reward When Doing a Good Deed
In past several decades,owning to the fantastic development of society,many traditional views are changed.And nowadays the following topic has around public attention.Some people argue that it is absolutely correct for one to expect a reward when doing a good deed,while others hold opposite view.
It is pointed out by a great many people that one should not expect any reward when doing a goog deed.They believe that good deeds belong to voluntary service,purely out of willingness,which has nothing to do with expectation of rewards.In other words,people do good deed is not because intending to obtain money or returns from others,but because wishing to do so and feeling honored,respected and needed.As a result,doing good deeds will be an essential source of one's happiness,pleasure and even pride. However,people who agree a fresh view claim that people should be rewarded for doing good deed,because those warm-hearted and nice people will sacrifice their own benefits.Suppose those people cannot obtain any praise and reward,will they still manage to do good deeds?The answer will not be
optimistic.Logically,they emphasize that proper and proportionate rewards will definitely encourage people in ever increasing numbers to help those who are in trouble.
Weighing the pros and cons of both two sides,I believe every view has its own reasons.Nevertheless,I cherish a belief that rewards,although many people do good deeds in order not to gain any reward,will gradually and eventually increase the number of people who expect to help people.
How to improve psychological health?
As is known to all, psychological health is as important as, if not more important than, physical health for a student during his/her growth. However, it’s quite worrying that nowadays some students are not quite psychologically healthy.
Undoubtedly, schools and universities should take great account in the responsibilities of students’ psychological health. Relevant courses and activities should be introduced to students so that they would be more aware of the significance of psychological health and find appropriate ways to maintain and improve it. For example, there should be a psychological counseling hotline or office for students to turn to when they need some psychological aid.
Of course no psychological health can be obtained without the efforts from the students themselves. From my perspective, what they can do is trying to stay positive, optimistic and follow the right guidelines from their schools. To be more specific, they can participate in some activities such as voluntary work to cultivate an opening and caring mind. Meanwhile, harmful impacts from the cyber space should definitely be avoided.
On the Importance of a Name
Recently， it is universally acknowledged that due attention has to be paid to the importance of name. To begin with， a large number of people assert that one’s name can exert profound influence on the success of a person or institution. In addition， some even maintain that the mental health and physical fitness of a person will be influenced or even determined by his or her name.
On the contrary， it is the view of a great many people that one’s name is of little significance. I can think of no better illustration than the following ones. “Qiu”， which means “hill”， is the name of Confucius， the greatest thinker， philosopher and educator throughtout history. Likewise， another case in point is Lao Zi， the founder of philosophical and religious Taoism， whose name is “er”， which means “the ear”. These examples effectively clarify that one’s future is only determined by his striving spirit， talent or intelligence rather than some mysterious and superstitious factors such as certain names or lucky numbers.
As for me， significance should be attached to intelligence， persistence and diligence instead of one’s name. Given all the above arguments， it is high time that we put an end to this undesirable phenomenon.
