Topic discussed: 一种恐龙crest的功能

Notes

Reading:

一种恐龙Crest的功能:

l  1. 一是用来闻味道的。

l  2. 二是用来增加体表面积,从而降低体温的。

l  3. 三是用来发声。

 

Lecture:

L并不支持阅读文章的观点:

l  1觉得大脑结构不支持,因为要能闻味道,大脑必须有各种感觉神经元,这种恐龙crest下的大脑只能很小,不可能复杂到能感受气味。

l  2觉得crest太小了,对增加体表面积贡献不大。

l  3化石证据发现,有crest的恐龙里,能发声的品种只有一种,其他的都不能发声。

Essay question

Do you agree or disagree that with the following statement? It’s more important for the government to spend money to build art museums and music performance centers than to build recreational facilities (such as swimming pool and playgrounds).

【话题提示】

文章关于的话题是政府将资金投入在音乐艺术场所上建设好,还是建造运动娱乐设施更好。比如,选择建造运动娱乐设施recreational facilities更重要,可以阐述以下几点:首先,对于民众的日常生活来说,运动设施更加息息相关。其次,艺术音乐场所造价昂贵。最后,音乐艺术收费高,接触人群更小众,而运动娱乐则更加易于被广大民众接受。

Sample answer

An appreciation of art is one of the things that make life worthwhile, as it reminds people of the beauty that is all around them. Therefore in many countries public art projects such as galleries, museums and concert halls are being actively funded by the government. Although such spending will indeed promote citizens cultural spirit as well as strengthen a countrys historic tradition, I do not think this should be the priority responsibility of a government. I would like to point out one particular area to which the government should be giving more financial support, and that is sports and recreational facilities.

 

To begin with, compared with art facilities, recreational facilities such as swimming pools and playgrounds are much more essential to peoples daily life. Not everyone has a talent or interest in art. To most people, art is something lofty and even elusive, which takes a great amount of cultural knowledge and fine taste to truly understand and appreciate. But doing sports or exercises is much easier and therefore much more popular among the general public. Anyone can easily find a particular type of exercise that fits his/her physical condition and age.

 

Secondly, art facilities are generally much more expensive to establish. A modern concert hall often requires elaborate decoration, comfortable seats, exquisite lighting and top-notch sound rendering system. With the same amount of investment, the government can perhaps build more than a dozen playgrounds with inexpensive but easy-to-use exercising equipment.

 

Furthermore, once a museum or a concert hall is established, it usually charges a high admission fee in order to sustain its daily operation and to fund ambitious projects or performances. But in the meantime they are turning away many ordinary but genuine art lovers who may not be able to afford an expensive visit. By comparison, public recreational facilities run by the government are meant to be used by the general public at a low cost, and therefore much more accessible to people with limited financial means.

 

Therefore, the government should try all means to make art available to all instead of being the possession of only the few. Before this can be ensured, I think the government should always place the funding and construction of recreational facilities before art facilities.
