As is shown in the first picture, on a mountain of university tiredly climbs a college student, almost finishing his journey in the university, and awkwardly and surprisingly finding that he has to climb another much higher mountain -- hunting a job, bus as is shown below, in front of a post board for recruiting government officials stand an ocean of people, with only one in front of the board for hiring waiter. There has been a heated discussion about these pictures recently in the newspaper. Simple as the pictures are , they do demonstrate certain thought-provoking social phenomenon. 如图第一幅图所示,在求学的大山上一个学生疲惫的攀爬着,好不容易快到了山的 顶峰,却不得不吃惊且尴尬的发现还有一座高很多的山他必须去爬,那就是找到一 份工作。但是在另一幅图中我们看到,在招聘公务员的广告牌前面站着一堆人,而 在招聘服务员的牌子前却只有一个人。最近报纸上对这样图画的讨论有很多。这些 图虽然简单,但是却确实表明了一个发人深思的社会现象。 The pictures tell us the issue of hunting jobs for college students is increasingly and seriously important in current days. What’s more , individuals, organizations and even the whole society have been attaching due attention to this issue. On one hand, when facing the pressure of finding a job, students are struggling painfully. The burden can cause not only depression but also anxiety and such problems as isolation and solitude. One’s thought , creative thinking and exploration spirit, therefore, have been stifled by pursing measurable high scores and various certificates when confronting this harsh reality. On the other hand , that college students fail to change the conventional view on jobs and to adapt their goals to the reality deepens this problem. Were there no prompt and proper solution to this problem, never would we taste the happiness of the harmonious society. 图画告诉我们大学生就业的问题在当今越来越重要了。个人,团体,政府甚至是整个社会都很关注这个问题。一方面,当面对找工作 的压力时,学生们痛苦的挣扎着。这样的负担不仅给他们带来了抑郁和焦虑的问题,还带来了像孤单,孤僻这样的问题。这样一来, 面对这样的残酷现实,一个人的思考,创造性的思维,开拓的精神很可能因为追求可被量化的分数和证书的而被遏制了。另一方面, 大学生没有能改变传统的就业观念让自己的目标更贴近现实也进一步的加重了这个问题。如果不能及时和恰当的解决这个问题,我们 将不可能实现体会到和谐社会的幸福感。 What should be done to reverse this situation? For one thing, instead of just earning their degrees and high exam scores, college students are expected to cultivate their potentials such as creation, imagination and coordination. Such qualities, though cannot be measured by their college certificates, really matter in their prospective career. For another thing, the educational institutions are supposed to integrate more practical training in their programs so that more competent college graduates can be produced for our society. Above all, the new awareness that all jobs are equal in dignity and that fame and excellence can be reached at any occupation should be promoted in the whole society. 如何改变这样的现状呢,一方面学生不只是要注重文凭和分数,学生们还需要培养自己的创造性,想象力和协调能力。这样的素质虽 然不能用证书来衡量却在以后工作中非常重要。另一方面,教育机构应该整合课程加入一些实用课程,让学生成为这个社会需要的一 员。最重要的是,整个社会都应该认识到:任何工作都是有尊严的,优秀和卓越在任何工作中都能成就。 背景介绍:山寨现象 “山寨”一词源于广东话,是“小型、小规模”甚至有点“地下工厂”的意思,其主要特点为仿造性、快速化、平民化。如今,网络上各种 各样的东西都有山寨版,山寨版明星、山寨版“神七”,山寨版“鸟巢”,山寨版的《红楼梦》甚至火过新版《红楼梦》。 从 2003 年开始出现山寨手机到各种山寨产品,“山寨”一词从经济行为逐渐演变为一种社会文化现象。如今“山寨相机”、“山寨电影”、 “山寨明星”甚至“山寨版的春晚”等诸多带有模仿性质的“山寨现象”层出不穷,形成了独有的“山寨文化”。KEYWORDS:
“Shanzhai” or “copycat”(山寨)
As is indicated in the illustration given above, one well-known historical notability named Li Kui is being astonished by his another-self, who is standing in the opposite side, with a disgraceful note in his hand announcing “giving you the parallel experience as the original edition could pay”. So, paid for what? Definitely, he would be paid for his special reputation as a so-called “Copycat Big Star” or “Shanzhai Superstar” which is rampant in today’s China. The trend of the variety of human culture is unchangeable even without the action delivered by human beings ascribing to the various individualities themselves, so is this round of culture revolution. The novelties emanating from the “Copycat Culture”--“Shanzhai Movie”, “Shanzhai Camera” and even “Shanzhai Celebration of Spring Festival” have brought a lot of entertainment to the public to some extent, but what we should never be blind to is
their negative influence if they go to extremes hypothetically. Just as the exemplification demonstrated in the cartoon goes, “Shanzhai Star” is taking advantage of the fame or profitable value generating from the true superstar, sometimes this kind of behavior is a typical infringement to the intellectual property indeed, which we can never fail to recognize from TV programs or newspapers always. Then, the question goes to another orientation, that is, whether or not should we admit the existence of “Copycat Culture” or to what extent could we make efforts to protect the rights of original authority? It goes with no denying that the engine of the development of a country is subject to the nation’s creative power, which needs the much strongest protection from no matter government or civilian to fight with any behavior ravaging this kind of ecological balance. Fortunately, the first good news has been coming in -- “a unique 15-digit code, the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), is being applied to China’s more than 200 types of registered mobile phones. The effort will combat “Shanzhai” mobile phones, or copycat phones, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said recently. ”
With the rapid development of economy, the number of Chinese traveling abroad has increased enormously, which definitely benefits both China and the world. In the past three years, the number of Chinese traveling abroad has kept a high growth rate. In accordance with the figures from a survey, there were about
  7.5 million people traveling abroad in 19
  99. In the year after 1999, the number continued to rise. By 2000, it reached 10 million people. And the year 2001 saw an ever-growing number of
  12.1 million people going abroad. The reasons why the number of Chinese traveling abroad grows so rapidly are just as follows. First of all, after 20 years' reform and opening up to the world, our economy has developed very quickly. Now Chinese have more money in their pockets than before. They can do whatever they want. Moreover, with more spare money in their hands, many Chinese would like to better the quality of their lives by going out to see different people, to hear different ideas and experience different cultures. And traveling abroad is just one way on the list to meet their demands. From the above analysis, we can easily draw the conclusion that such an increase in the number of people traveling abroad is reasonable and will continue to prove on a rise.
As is subtly revealed in the cartoons above, global warming is a real threat to our world. In the first drawing, the glaciers in the polar region are rapidly melting owing to global warming. In the second picture, a homeless polar bear is staying on an isolated big block of ice. The purpose of these portrayals is to show us that global warming is a looming threat to people all over the world. To begin with, global warming leads to the rise of sea levels. Large sections Chinese coastal regions would gradually disappear under rising sea levels because of global warming, severely impairing the country’s social and economic progress. China’s long coastline is the base for about 70% of the large cities, over half of the domestic population and nearly 60% of the national economy. With comparatively-advanced social, economic and cultural developments, China’s off-shore regions will suffer great losses if the sea level does not cease rising. In addition, global warming increases the possibility and intensity of extreme weather such as hurricanes and snowstorms. Hurricanes and typhoons have become stronger and longer-lasting over the past 30 years. These upswings correlate with a rise in sea surface temperatures due to global warming. Taking into account the devastating effects of global warming, we can draw the conclusion that global warming is a great threat to our world. Facing the growing menace of global warming, more scientific and active preventive measures should be taken on a larger scale to change for the better. (250 words)
As is symbolically illustrated in the picture, a lovely baby is sleeping comfortably on th e beautiful earth with a little bird singing over him. In the drawing, a huge green umbr ella shelters the baby and the earth from the threatening outside world. The caption indi cates that we should advocate low carbon economy and cherish the earth. The painter aims at reminding us the relationship between low carbon economy and environmental protection. In the first place, low carbon economy is crucial to sustainab le economic development. Economic expansion causes irreparable damage to our environ ment. A fragile ecological environment, insufficient environmental capacity and shortage of resources are becoming critical problems hindering the world’s development. If we w ant to achieve sustainable development, environmental protection should be integrated int o our economic endeavors. Low carbon economy will have a direct impact on the overall situation of the world’s modernization drive and its long-term development. In the second place, environmental protection is in line with traditional Chinese culture. One of the core principles of traditional Chinese culture is to maintain harmony betw een man and nature. Many philosophies from Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism have emphasized the significa nce of a balanced environment. As an old Chinese saying goes, “Forefathers plant trees so future generations can enjoy the shade.” Protecting our environment and preserving a healthy environment for future generations goes h and in hand with Chinese culture. Generally speaking, low carbon economy is indispensable for sustainable development. Haunted by various en vironmental problems, we should put the low carbon economy at the core of our economic development plans an d solve wide-ranging environmental problems before they evolve into environmental crisis.

As is shown above , on the sky fly a group of doves symbolizing the volunteers who are deeply involved in the shanghai world exposition. In the middle of another picture happily walks a young volunteer, holding a heart shape symbol representing the spirit of volunteer. Just as a proverb says, the fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose. There has been a heated discussion about these pictures recently in the newspaper. Simple as the pictures are , they do demonstrate certain thought-provoking social phenomenon. 如图所示,一群象征着志愿者的白鸽正在飞想上海世博会。在另一幅图中,一位志愿者正高举着象征着志愿者 精神的标志。下面有一行谚语:送人玫瑰,手有余香。 The picture tells us that volunteer spirit is flourishing in china. Nearly 30 million registered volunteers in China have made the outstanding contributions to the relief for the May 12 earthquake ,the success of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games ,and the wonder of Shanghai World Exposition ,which has left a deep impression on the world. After the devastating earthquake hit southwest China's Sichuan Province, more than one million volunteers plunged into relief work within days. They went all out to save the victims, provide psychological counseling and donate money and materials. The spirit of volunteerism featuring altruism and charity is a social concept held by individuals or groups who are willing to help others and improve society without pay. Just as many volunteers said , they cherish the experience and love the volunteer work, which enriches their lives , enlightens them and brings them spiritual wealth. 这两幅图告诉我们志愿者在中国大量涌现。近 3000 万注册的志愿者在 512 地震,奥运和当下的世博中都作出 了重大的贡献。这给整个世界都留有深刻的印象
