Even though computer is one of the important inventions throughout the history, it has many negative sides that couldn’t be ignored. The first negative thing about computer is that it makes people lazy. Many people especially teenagers like to use computer for entertaining, like games, facebook, and chatting. When they are doing those things, they feel relaxed and really enjoy it. Since people can easily have fun and also avoid doing things they don’t like when they are playing computer, this could become a factor that causes people to stay home all day and become too lazy to work or study.
The second negative thing is that it gives bad guys chances to do bad things. Nowadays, people like to post their information online and use internet to shop. Those situations could lead to crime. For example, if I want to buy a book online, I need to enter my information and my debit card number. bad people could see the information and steal money from my account or use my card to buy goods in some ways.
The last negative thing I want to mention is about health. Some teenagers and workers use computers from day to night, we all know that using too much computer could be bad for eyes and it has radiation that is harmful. And so, many people need to wear glasses. People who sit for a long time to use computer are easy to get disease like varicose vein of lower limb and cervical vertebra disease. People who use computers tend to have more chances to get mental disease like depression, hard to fall asleep at night, lose interest to everything.
Computer is very useful and it makes our life easier, but at the same time, we should use it properly to decrease its negative effects toward ourselves when we enjoy the convenience it brings to us.
I have three points to support the benefits of computer. First of all, the computer, which is a friend, follows us every day and every time. It is very usefull in our life that is coloful. When you surf on the internet, you will get a lot of interesting things right there.
Next, the computer likes a secretary that can service and help you almost all the way. You can go on internet, go shopping wish you want and check a new word or research some hard to understand new things, and you can use some programs to edit an article or photographs.
My last main point is that the computer is a good teacher for us. You can use its strong function to go online to study, communicate with people, get know knowledge and gather other person’s high opinions, enrich our experence. So, computer is our good partner, it has great memory and function that can benefit us. – Kyle Chen
Day by day cell phones are becoming the essential parts of our life. The most basic benefit of a cell phone which most of us use is that we can stay connected with our loved ones in any part of the world and anytime. I can use my cell phone to talk, keep in touch with my friends in my country. Cell phones are also useful in time of emergencies. People can get help with the use of cell phone easily. Having a cell phone means that you are accessible in case of an emergency even if you are out on the road. People can call each other no matter where they are. For example, if someone doesn’t have the cell phone, there is no way to contact him while he is on the road or whenever somebody needs him.
In addition, the technology which is provided with cell phones has made life easier. Cell phones act like a computer. At the present time cell phones are equivalent to tiny computers. People can also use cameras, calendars, set up alarm clocks, take notes and other devices. With the modern cell phones, users can connect to the Internet and searching for whatever they want. Sometimes I do not have to carry my laptop with me. Instead, I can use my cell phone. I can chat with friends, send email, download files, play games. Though cell phones were only useful for talks when they first came out, nowadays they are of multiple use and have practically driven out many interesting gadget.
The next one is that many parents provide their children with cell phones for safety reasons. The speed dial up option in cell phones lets people contact emergency numbers by pressing only one button. For example, my 12-year-old cousin has had a cell phone. If she runs into any problems, she can easily call her parents or her sister. Likewise, her parents can call her if they need to talk to her. For many parents, a cell phone is a convenient way to contact their children.
In conclusion, for many people, cell phones have become an important part of daily life. The ability to communicate with a cell phone, along with its other features, has made life easier. However, cell phones can harm their user’s health as well. Long-term use of cell phones can damage hearing and cause certain types of cancer. People should only use their cell phones in cases of emergency.
I was born in Guangzhou, a big city in southern China. I moved to the U S four years ago. Since then, I have been back to Guangzhou twice. I am planning to go the third time in January 2013. I am so missing Guangzhou. The three things I most miss about Guangzhou are the restaurants, my social status, and my family.
Thinking about the restaurants in Guangzhou really makes me homesick. When we are in Guangzhou, my wife and I liked to taste different kinds of dishes in different restaurants. We had an agreement that we celebrate our birthdays by eating buffets in different five star hotels. As time went by, more and more five star hotels were built in Guangzhou. We are looking forward to eating in these new hotels.
The next thing that I miss is the social status I used to have. I used to be a tour guide in an outbound travel agency. I have been to 28 countries in the world. I miss the opportunities to travel around different places. Also, I miss my large group of friends in Guangzhou.
The thing I miss the most is my family. My father and mother are living in Guangzhou. They are nearly 70 years old. The health of my Mom is not so good. She always gets headache and cough. My last time in Guangzhou was in April this year. My Mom coughed serious at that time. One week after I came back to the US, my Mom was in hospital. She stayed there for 10 days to treat her bad cough. Even if she is recovered now, I still miss my Mom very much.
I miss everything in Guangzhou. Going to Guangzhou only takes 14 hours by flight. I will go to Guangzhou more often whenever I have vacation.
My best friend TVC has so many good trail. One of his good trail is helpful. He is a helpful person, he likes helping people. He used to help me a lot.
One example happened three year ago, when we were in high school together. One of my classmates, whose name is Vincent, got sick. He couldn’t go to school and missed classes. No one in class helped him but TVC. One day , TVC didn’t see Vincent come to class anymore, then he thought it would be something wrong. He found out that he got sick . He asked the teacher for Vincent’s phone number and address. He came to Vincent’s house and helped him to catch up with class. One week later, Vincent got well and came to class. He hasn’t missed anything, because TVC helped him a lot.
To give another example, I am a student so bad at math, and always get low scores for my math test. My score was about 50%-60%. TVC voluntered to be my math tutor, to help me to improve my math skill. He told me to practice more, and my math skill would get better soon . He spent all his free time to help me. I was so worried , because the final test is coming , and if my math skills don’t get better, I would fail that test. Finally, I got high score from my final test, after so many day study hard with TVC. I was so happy.
One more example took place a few months ago, I was on the way to school by motorcycle. My school is kind of far from my house, like 30 minutes away. I was taking freeway, and this car was driving behind me and hit me suddenly. i fell down and my hand hurts a lots and bloods were falling down. I was so nervous and did not know what to do. I called my house and there was no one pick up the phone, and i called my best friend TVC to help. He was in class. He left the class and came with me. He helped me with everything , and went to hospital with me.
TVC is a helpful person. A good friend with good trail that I never had. I’ve learn how to be helpful person from him.
