WRITING SECTION

Integrated writing task

Topic discussed:   argentavis magnificens是古代的largest的鸟(记录应该到现在也没破)讨论是不是会飞的问题

 

Note

 

Reading:

 1.翅膀太大,起飞会打到地上所以飞不了。 听力:可以用助跑起飞,有heellarge feet证明能跑很快

  2.没有enough muscle去支持飞行。现在有些鸟像eagle之类,运用气流飞行不需要自己用力去保持。

  3.根据evolution只往有益的方向进化,没需要。可能食腐,需要高空飞行去捕食

 

Lecture: Marsupial

1.可以起跑再起,比如从山上向下跑;

  2.它只需要开翅膀在空中滑行

  3.行有利于scavenge就是工作的地方或者学校工人或者学生的着装行要求,你同意是不同

Essay question

Scientists should be responsible for the negative impact brought about by their discoveries or inventions.

 

【话题提示】

我们可以采取不同的观点,在开头说明科技带来的负面影响,后面说明正面的影响。

 

Words and expressions

 

Sample answer

Scientists have totally changed our world. Thanks to their discoveries and inventions, our life now is more comfortable and convenient. However, at the same time, some discoveries and inventions like pesticide, nuclear weapon and genetically modified food are bringing us serious problems. Consequently ,some people claim that scientists are supposed to be responsible for the negative impacts brought about by their discoveries and inventions. Personally, I disagree with their view.

On the one hand, for most scientists, their original intention is to benefit human beings when they make discoveries and inventions. For example, when chemical scientists invented pesticide, their intention is to help farmers kill insects effectively and increase crop and vegetable yields. They have no idea that the massive use of pesticides would give rise to serious ecological problems. When nuclear scientists discovered nuclear weapon, they just want to find a new way to help human produce more electricity.  No one wants to use nuclear weapon to destroy this world. When biologists changed the genes of certain plants, they just want to get bigger and better fruits in order to meet the demand of all people. I am sure they did not know genetically modified food is a hidden danger for our health.

On the other hand, if we punish scientists for the negative impacts of their inventions and discoveries, we would wipe out their enthusiasm for scientific research. Many scientists are now doing research on clone. Clone can help us cure many diseases. When there is something wrong with a patient’s organ, we can use cloning technology to produce a new organ and replace the old one. However, this would be shrouded in chaos. In order to avoid these problems, should we stop scientists from doing research and punish them? If we did, many diseases would never be cured. Besides, scientists in many other fields would feel over cautious and dare not doing research. If we blame scientists for their achievements, the society would be stagnant because science and technology are the driving force of society.

From what I have discussed above, we may safely draw the conclusion that scientists should not be responsible for the negative impacts of their discoveries and inventions for the good of mankind and human society.
