now to measure progressJuly 6th, 2016
When it comes to evaluating the progress we have made, there is a host of discussion and no consensus can be found. Some will claim that logic and precise measurement should be applied to evaluate the progress so we can exactly know whether we have made progress or moved backwards. Others insist that not everything is measurable and sometimes we can not find a objective standard to judge whether we improve or not. From my point of view, I favor the latter.

A myriad of different opinions are associated to the question that who should evaluate the greatness of a person, the people in the same history period or the one live after them. Some believes that only the decedents can judge an individual since they will not influenced by their own interest so the opinion is fair. However others are holding the opposite and they believe only the citizens living in the same history period can decide the greatness of a person because they have more information.

imaginative literatureJune 26th, 2016
Modern people have more methods to kill their leisure time. For example, idiot box (TV) has taken a lot of free time from seniors and working class; online games have occupied most of the time among juniors. People start to question that because of the fast pace of the modern life and more choices when it comes to relaxing ourselves, if it is still necessary for people to read poetry, fictions or other imaginative books. From my point of view, even though we are saturated with all kinds of technologies and have a way more colorful life than decades ago, people still need to enjoy ( at least try to enjoy) the poetries, mythology and other literatures since we definitely can benefit from these.
major cityJune 26th, 2016
People always say that if one wants to get to know China, Beijing is a must to visit since through visiting the biggest city in China, visitors can understand the most important characteristics of that country. Here comes to the argument, can major cities represent the features of the nation? From my point of view, major cities are of great help in comprehend the culture of the society, however, it is not sufficient to understand the whole country. We also need to take small cities and rural areas into account when evaluating the whole society.

Also, the government of the town will invest on the development of infrastructures such as schools and public services.

I feel like this argument is not well supported on several grounds. As discussed below, there are several severe flaws and therefore unpersuasive.

Politicians are one of the most tempting and yet demanding jobs in the world. People give them very high expectation on changing the society and bringing welfare to the citizens and so on they always expect politicians will disclose all the details they know to show their honesty and trustworthy. It is true that honesty is one of the crucial virtues for human beings. However, being a politician sometimes means they will always encounter a dilemma that they need to choose between withholding some information for good or unveiling the whole story which can cause really uncontrollable situations.
