Topic discussedMarsupialsplacental mammals谁适应能力强

Notes

Reading: 

Marsupials 不如placental mammals 适应性强

l 1. marsupial 的幼崽joeys,没完全发育就出生,导致需要装在pouch里面,vulnerable,抵抗能力差,而placental 的幼崽生下来就完全发育了,比较高级。

l 2. marsupial 不能有效的控制其体温,这是其不足之处,不如placental高级。

l 3. marsupial竞争不过placental,澳洲的kangaroo数量多的原因是因为没有placental与其竞争。

 

Lecture: 

Marsupial 适应能力很强,有些方面比placental有过之而不不急

l 1. Joeys在妈妈口袋里很安全。喝妈妈的奶,增强抵抗力,帮助建立免疫系统,很有适应能力。

l 2. marsupials 不光控制体温,还能故意改变体温,比如降低体温,减少体力消耗,增强存活率。

l 3. 两种哺乳动物共同存在Australia 的时间是百万年以前,而不是文章中说的最近。所以,placental 不用和marsupial竞争。

Essay question

A/D: It is important for government to provide money for things that are beautiful not just for things that are practical. 【140524 CN

话题提示

 

Sample answer

Government’s core function is to provide for health, safety, education and defense of its citizens. It may be tempting to argue that by focusing on things pleasing to beholders, a government can harvest more support. I, however, believe this could be a bad idea, and eye-catcher projects can be no substitute for ones with practical purposes..

 

Consider real estate. The recent decades has witnessed a boom in majestic mansions and skyscrapers on a global scale. While they are all pleasing to our eyes, quite a few boasts fashionably hallow designs taking up much space yet serving few practical purposes. Even so, governments still play along, funding projects and enforcing policies in the hope of a sound public image. However, all this could  be in vain when the housing reality of the working class has become so harsh that few others would step up to fill the role. If the government could subsidize affordable housing, things would be a lot better for struggling college graduates. Studies have shown a majority persons have to postpone their wedding plans as the results of inability to buy a house. Affordable housing does not necessarily make a good headline, but government is doing the right thing of the benefits of the public from a practical sense.

 

Also, consider the public transit. Maglev train can be regarded as a remarkable milestone in transportation history. The sleek design and fast speed gives this invention aura of fame and the government aura of flourish. Can we thus assume the administration is a successful one? The answer is negative. This technological advancement is rather costly and energy inefficient. At the expense of huge financial and human resources, the government manages to present the world with an eye-catcher yet fails to satisfy the needs of the majority. Poorly maintained bus lines and overly crowed subways are the reality for the public. It surely falls under the rubrics of government responsibility to upgrade the current public transit. Such practical pan does not always gather much spotlight but if we take a long view, government is making a contribution commuters can benefits from on an every-day basis.

 

To sum up, nice-looking projects tend to be a huge drain on government’s resources Things that seem to be practical, on the other hand, deserve more attention.
