The first time when an astronaut arrived on the Moon, he said "It is a big step for mankind." However, some people think it makes a minor impact on our lives. Do you agree or disagree? Use you own experience to explain. (060408IeltsA)

 

Almost every day we read something in the papers about the latest exciting developments in the space race. Photographs are regularly flashed to the earth from thousands and even millions of miles away. They are printed in our newspapers and shown on our television screens as a visible proof of the man's newest achievements. The photographs neatly sum up the results of these massive efforts to 'conquer space' and at the same time they exposed the absurdity of the undertaking. All we can see is an indistinguishable blob which is supposed to represent a planet seen from several thousand miles away. We are going to end up with a little moon-dust and a few stones which will be put behind glass in some museum. This is hardly value for money when you think that our own earth can provide countless sights which are infinitely more exciting and spectacular.

 

The space race is not simply the objective search for knowledge it is often made out to be. It is just an extension of the race for power on earth. Only the wealthiest nations can compete and they do so in the name of pure scientific research. But in reality, all they are interested in is power and prestige. They want to impress us, their spectators, with a magnificent show of strength. Man has played the power game ever since they appeared on earth. Now he is playing it as it has never been played before. The space race is just another aspect of the age-old argument that 'might is right'.

 

We are often told that technological know-how, acquired in attempting to get us into orbit, will be utilized to make our living better on earth, but what has the space race done to relieve the suffering of the earth's starving millions? In what way has it raised the standard of living of any one of us? As far as the layman is concerned, the practical results of all this expenditure of money and efforts are negligible. Thanks to space research, we can now see television pictures transmitted live half-way across the globe and the housewife can use non-stick frying-pans in the kitchen. The whole thing becomes utterly absurd when you think that no matter what problems man overcomes, it is unlikely that he will ever be able to travel even to the nearest star.

 

Poverty, hunger, disease and war are man's greatest enemies and the world would be an infinitely better place if the powerful nations devoted half as much money and effort to those problems as they do to the space race. For the first time in his history, man has the overwhelming resources to combat human suffering, yet he squanders them on meaningless pursuits.

 It is right that college graduates earn higher salaries than the less well-educated in the community. But they should also pay the full cost of their study. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?

 

Some conclude that college students should bear Idontknowl expenses for their higher learning on the generalization that college graduates usually receive higher salaries for similar jobs than those without a college degree. We can not deny that higher level of education, indeed, do associate with better income. Still, build on such fact alone, the conclusion remains questionable when more aspects are taken into consideration.

 

The whole argument in question rests on an assumption that it is always the case that people with higher education make more money than those less well-educated. But salary or income is, in most cases, based on contributions made by employees to companies or organizations in which they are employed. Statistics in the labor market indicate that people with professional training tend to find jobs easier than college graduates do and that blue-collar workers who do not hold college degrees are becoming the hotties in the labor market. Employers prefer to hire and pay more to highly skilled and specially trained people rather than fresh college graduates. In the auto industry, for instance, skilled technicians make two or three times more than their college educated counterparts who make the average salaries in other companies. And it is widely accepted that people’s income is determined more by talent, hard work, and willingness to take risks than solely by certain qualifications such as college education. Otherwise, the unemployment rate of college graduates would not be increasing every year and the rule of supply and demand will lose much of power in controlling the labor market. Admittedly in some knowledge extensive field such as research, teaching, and practice of law the labor force are primarily consists of highly educated professionals. But such people make up only a fraction of the labor market and are thus unrepresentative of the whole employment in general.

 

Considering the goal of education, we find that it is even more problematic for the country to throw all the responsibility of financing college education to college students. The goal of higher education of a nation is to improve and strengthen the general level of intellectual and professional capacity of its labor force, thereby increasing the competency of the nation in the global economy. As tax payers, parents all contributes to the education system and country in various ways. It is only reasonable and necessary that the country gives some forms of financially assistance to students to ease the burden of rising education costs. Such help should go to not only students from needy or impoverished families but also outstanding students from affluent backgrounds. Doing so can significantly boost the motivation of children from millions of families to engage in higher level of study. It is understandable that the general quality of people in a country will improve and its economy will benefit both now and in years to follow.

The government should control the amount of violence in films and on television in order to decrease the level of violent crimes in the society. Do you aggress or disagree?

              

Prompted by some incidents of television and film inspired crimes, the issue of whether the government should control the amount of violence in films and on television has been a contentious discussion. Views on the topic vary greatly.

 

Advocates claim that the practice of controlling the amount of violence in mass media is a brazen violation of the people’s basic right to know the truth of the world. For example, some films contain some violence, but they reflect the things happened around us. Rather than producing negative effects on audience, to some extent, these films educate them. Furthermore, violence in films or on television programs cultivates people’s senses of crisis and responsibility, which makes ordinary people and police work better for public security. Consequently, it is irresponsible and foolish to blame the media for violence in our society.

 

However, opponents argue that violence in films and on television is detrimental to audience’s psychology. Taking fantasy for reality, people become aggressive and eccentric. They believe things can be solved by violence. In addition, violence has negative impacts on the stability of society. Research findings reveal that 60 percent of crimes are committed by teenagers after watching films or television which had a large amount of violence. Teenagers are so vulnerable and immature that they cannot judge whether the activities performed in mass media are right or not. As an illustration, a boy killed his younger sister in Australia because he imitated the violent scenes from television programs.

 

In my opinion, the disadvantages of controlling the amount of violence in media outweigh the advantages. But I believe the government should label how much violence the programs contain on the screens, and parents and teachers have responsibility to guide their children and help them to distinguish right from wrong when they watch violent programs.

Computers are less helpful to children’s study. Some people say computers have a negative effect on children’s physical and mental development. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

 

Admit it or not, the time children spent on computers is on the rise.  Some people say that computers have positive effect on children’s study, while others think that, contrarily, computers can be harmful to children’s physical and mental development.

 

People with the former idea argue that faced with the vast knowledge of all kinds on the internet, children’s interest in study can be aroused.  Moreover, the internet provides children with the latest development of all subjects, which the textbooks can never keep up with.  Lastly, computer skill is essential for people now, and it is certainly better for children to learn to master it earlier.

 

However, I side with the latter point of view: computers can have a bad effect on children.  In the first place, besides knowledge, there is other information which can pervert children on the internet, such as pornography, violence, and so on.  As children’s ability of self-control is poor, those things may easily lead children to go astray.  In the second place, children may become egoists spending most of their time with computers.  With little time to communicate with other, they may gradually lose the ability to get along well with people around them.  Lastly, spending much time with computers also can be bad for children’s physical development.  It is known to all that computers and televisions are the two main causes of nearsightedness. Besides, children are prone to be obese with long time sitting in front of the computer and little time on sports.

 

The disadvantages of computer mentioned above are easy to point to a conclusion that computers have more disadvantages than advantages to children. (272 words)

Traffic and housing problems in major cities could be solved by moving large companies and factories and their employers to the countryside. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

 

It is undeniable that traffic and housing problems are becoming more and more prominent in major cities.  Take the city I am living in for example: traffic jams in rush hours are a commonplace; millions of workers have to live in low “huts”, and most city dwellers have to spend a large part of their life working to pay for an apartment.

 

Some people suggest that large companies and factories and their employers should be moved to the countryside as a solution to the problems.  This suggestion may work, but I do not think it is the best one.

 

First, let us look into the causes of the traffic problem.  In my opinion, it results not only from the large population but also from the underdevelopment of public transportation, which leads to the growing amount of private cars, a considerably large proportion of the city transport.  So, in order to solve the traffic problem, the government has to improve public transportation, the underground for instance, and thus decrease the number of cars running on the road.

 

Then, let us turn to the housing problem.  I do not think the moving of big companies, etc., is feasible.  If they are moved out of the city, they will lose the benefits the city brings to them, the updated information and the convenient transportation from other cities, and so on.  My suggestion is to build satellite residential cities; thereby, people can commute to work in the major city every day.

To sum up, other than moving the big companies and factories to the countryside, there are more effective solutions to the traffic and housing problems.

Many people say that we have developed into a “throw-away society”, because we are filling up our environment with so many plastic bags and rubbish that we cannot fully dispose of. To what degree do you agree with this opinion and what measures can you recommend to reduce this problem?


Mrs. Liu, as a retired rural lady in mountain area of Sichuan province, with the aim of environmental protection, has voluntarily collected eight hundreds kilograms of used batteries by her meager life-saving as well as thousands of waste plastic bags. Reading this coverage, besides touched by this sincere environmentalist, I feel shame on 123lf—regarded as a well educated modernist but “throw away” rubbish everyday! Undoubtedly, it is the right time to ponder about environmental problems.
To begin with, it is turning to be an industrialized society and quite popular to produce a titanic number of those plastic bags and packages because of their low cost and high profit. Meanwhile, there are too many infectious diseases so it is necessary to popularize through-away syringes and throw-away chopsticks to avoid explosion of communicable diseases. As a result, we have neglected that plastic, as one of the biggest enemy of environment, is not biodegradable. This feature has already caused an irretrievable white pollution in our planet.  
On the other hand, people’s the outlook on consumption is completely altered in this epoch. The rapidly increasing income brings about a new life style that is keep buying the new things and discarding the old ones, such as furniture, clothes, and articles of everyday use. Such an extravagant custom dramatically swell the amount of trash which cannot be totally deposed, triggering off a serious pollution.
The best way to solve the problem, in my opinion, is to reduce the production of plastic and try to use paper bags as much as possible. At the same time, the government also should implement some powerful policies to popularize the environmental knowledge and encourage more volunteers such as Mrs. Liu to safe the dirty earth.

Air transport is increasingly used to export some types of fruits and vegetables to countries where those plants can not grow or are out of season. Some say it is a good thing, but others consider this use of transport cannot be justified. What do you think?

Nowadays, there is no denying that air transport has become a heated argument on which people hold quite diverse standpoints. Some people claim that different types of fruits and vegetables can be exported to countries where those plants are everyday requisites that are not available in the market, while others advocate that this use of transport cannot be justified. As far as I am concerned, I am of the viewpoint that it is essentially important to make good use of air transport, provided that it is properly regulated and superintended by corresponding government watchdogs.

Firstly, air transport can cater for the basic needs of those people who have almost no access to those daily necessities since these fruits and vegetables are out of their local market. Recent surveys have found that nearly 60% of the countries or regions all over the world have to import goods and products from other countries with an aim to satisfying people's requirements, and among those things from other countries such agricultural products as fruits and vegetables rank in the first place.

Furthermore, air transport can not only boost the local economy but also increase the fiscal revenue of the government. Furthermore, the government can take advantage of the money to improve the living standard of the locals. Only in this way can local residents benefit a great deal form air transport.

Last but not least, air transport allows countries in the world to specialize in the state-of-the-art techniques of manufacturing and processing in order to optimize natural resources that are the most valuable wealth that human beings shall cherish so as to stimulate their economy continuously since the trend of global cooperation and collaboration is inevitable and indispensable.

From the above-mentioned analysis, we can easily reach the conclusion that air transport of fruits and vegetables plays a vital and indispensable role in both people' life and the country's economy, and I have the convicted faith that people will really utilize it positively and proactively.

Advantages and disadvantages of private cars. 小汽车的利与弊。
With the fantastic spur both in industry and in economy in China, the number of people who own private cars is on the rise. Some people have bought cars of their own, and others are planning to buy cars. But there have been two quite different views on this phenomenon.
Some claim that there are many advantages brought about by cars. First, the automobile industry provides jobs for countless workers and strong support for other industries. Second, if conditions permit, owning a car can make us work more efficiently. Finally, life will become more convenient. A car allows one to move freely and with a car there is no need to wait for the bus in the cold or under the burning sun.
However, others strongly object to the increase in developing private cars. They hold that automobiles will give rise to a series of problems. In the first place, as more and more cars are produced and run in the street, a large volume of poisonous gas will be given off, polluting the atmosphere and causing actual harm to the health of people. Next, private cars contribute to traffic congestion so greatly that the advantages gained in comfort and freedom are often cancelled out by the frustration caused by traffic jams. The last problem is the increasing number of car accidents that have killed and will kill a lot of people in a friction of a second.
In my opinion, although automobiles have been playing a vital part in the daily activities of our society, they also bring us numerous troubles such as more serious environmental pollution, more traffic accidents and more energy consumption. They drink up huge amounts of fuel and throw out huge amounts of pollutants. Traffic accidents kill thousands and thousands of people each year and cripple more. Jams waste our precious time. Therefore I am against developing private cars.

Some British families decide not to buy televisions because they influence the development of the creativity of children. What do you think?
   As science and technology accelerates, television, as a powerful invention in the 20th century is becoming unbelievably popular in people’s life. People can be acquainted with the current affairs and appreciate the affluent programs right at home. As to my opinion on it, television will not whittle children’s creativity as exaggerated.

To begin with, television is the most effective means to inform children of the latest news and scientific improvement all over the world. Television reveals the recent development of some researches, such as the new computing technology, clone technology, genetic breakthroughs and so on, which can inspire the imagination of children and motivate them to conduct relevant experiments, making new findings and breakthroughs in their study.

Moreover, some programs like adventures and geography can enlarge children’s capacity of knowledge. With the emergence of information technology, the knowledge presented in textbooks cannot cater for children’s curiosity any more. Children need to learn wider knowledge and know more about our world. Programs like adventures can cultivate children’s creativity and the ability to tackle difficulty; programs like geography can teach children knowledge about different countries in the world and initiate their aspiration to know about the nature; programs about science can inspire children’s interest in science and technology.

Admittedly, the inappropriate programs on television somehow play negative role in the shape of children. The films containing violence, crimes and pornography contents tempt children to go astray.

In a word, it is my strong belief that television will not impair children’s creativity as is asserted. Nevertheless, the government and the whole society should exert to eliminate the unhealthy contents on TV and ensure the children with a favorable growing environment.
