nowadays, one of the most serious problems china is faced with is brain drain. while shortages of talent trouble many universities and state-owned enterprises, millions of talented people either emigrate to developed countries or work for foreign companies. at the same time, a big crowd of well-educated people who are determined to follow their footsteps take toefl or gre as their passport to the west.
however, people see this phenomenon in different perspectives. some hold the opinion that china suffers a lot from brain drain. they argue, on the one hand, that brain drain considerably weakens our international competitiveness. on the other hand, they believe that the talent should serve their native country first.in contrast, others highlight the advantages of international exchange and cooperation. they claim that chinese youths should go abroad to study and gain more experience. what’s more, the long-term benefits will outweigh losses we suffer now.
brain drain poses a challenge. china should go all out to attract talented people in order to better compete in the world. for one thing, decent living and working conditions should be offered to specialists. for another, we have to better develop our economy, which is a sure bait for all kinds of talent.
Health Gains in Developing Countries
From the graph we can see the health gains in developing cotmtries. In l960, the average life span or life expectancy was only 40 years old. In 1990, after thirty years, the life expectancy rose to 60. At the same time, with the life expectancy going up, the infant mortality is coming down. In 1960 the infant mortality was 200 deaths per 1000 births. That is, about 200 infants died at birth among 1000 babies born. In 1990, the infant mortality declined to 100 deaths per 1000 births.
What are the reasons for this situation? I think it lies in three respects. First, economy is developing as time progresses. People am better off than before. Second, education plays an important role. People are better educated and more civilized. They are more aware that good health ensures success in life and work, Third, the government pays more attention to the protection of the environment. More measures are being taken to deal with the problem of pollution. That is why life expectancy is on the rise and infant mortality on the decline.
China has only 7 percent of tile world farmland, but it successfully feeds 22 percent of the word population. It has the largest irrigated area of the fanaland in the world and grows more than a third of rice and other crops of the world. Fish farming is also important, so fresh-water fish can be produced wherever you hive. Vegetable waste is used to feed pigs and chickens in the country. Gas also is produced by human and animal waste there, and it is used to heating and cooking. Using waste can make the environment around us cleaner and cleaner.
The Lunar New Year is a great occasion to the Chinese people. It lasts about the first four days of the year, during which people do not work except for the workers on duty. Students do not go to school, and shops are closed. xzhufu_com

but ，what i really decide to do is that i must make good of anytime i can spare though it seems impossible. while，i will do my best to live up with what i have planned，and the result will prove it.
Dear David :
How’s everything going? As your birthday is drawing near, I’ve prepared a gift for you. It’s a Chinese painting “bamboo”, which I specially drew for you.
In Chinese culture, bamboo carries many best wishes and excellent qualities. On one hand, it stands straight and stays green all year round, so it’s always full of life. I wish you as strong and energetic as a bamboo. On the other hand, it’s hard outside but hollow inside. If compared to a bamboo, one is usually considered to be strong-willed and modest. All in all, we use bamboo to represent a noble and gentle person.
I hope you like the gift and wish you a happy birthday.
Chinese Traditional Virtue
Chinese traditional virtue is the excellent moral heritage we inherited from the ancients. We learned many moral characters, such as, thrift, honesty, affection, filial piety, loyalty, humaneness and so on through many old stories and life practice. I summarized it into three aspects: humanity, courtesy and integrity.
To begin with, Chinese culture advocates humanity. This thought does not only seek for human peace but also for the harmony between human and nature and other creatures. There are many examples that show humanity in the history. The emperors, who gain people’s great supports such as Tang Taizong, Kang Xi, complied with the philosophy that “Cultivate humanity, and then you could cultivate your family, administrate the country, and bring peace all over the world” (The Book of Rites). Additionally, there goes a famous saying, “honor the aged of other people as we honor our own, take care of the young of other people as we take care of our own” (the Analects). This important part of humanity makes great contributions to establishing a harmonious society. All in all, humanity makes us show respect to not only human life but also the environment and all kinds of life around us.
In addition, China, a nation which has civilization of 5,000 years, puts courtesy at a very important position. From the old to the young, from the important events to the trivial things, it is common for people to use this rule to regulate their behavior. The traditional story of Kong Rong sharing pears is well-known by Chinese people. The behavior of KongRong to choose the smallest pear and leave the bigger ones to his brothers is a good explanation for the courtesy and comity. Courtesy makes us form many good habits in the daily life, for instance, saying hello to teachers, respecting parents, showing courtliness to our friends, giving up our seat on the bus to the people who needs it more. What’s more, courtesy play an important role in the Chinese diplomatic policy which do great help to the success of building steady relationship with other nations.
Last but not least, Chinese ethics place a great emphasis on integrity. It is the basic
principle when we get along with others. For this reason, I regard it as the most important rule we should obey to regulate our behavior. Integrity is needed in every field of our life. To be honest and sincere is the fundamental thing to be a human being. Just as the famous saying of Socrates “The dishonest life is not worth living”. Moreover, honesty and integrity is necessary when we are handling the relationship with friends and family members. Keeping secrets among family and friends often harm them deliberately or in deliberately. Still, in a business perspective, integrity is mainly with sincere reception, fair trade, abiding by the contract, pay the liabilities in time, and not cooking the books, etc. As a student, we show our integrity through pursuing the true academic knowledge, obeying the discipline of test, using the true and correct information to compete in all kinds of award selection.
In summary, I am deeply convinced that all these great virtues had, have and still will have tremendous effect on the field of regulating people’s behaviors. The Chinese traditional virtues are not only the essence of ancient moral civilization, but also the cohesion of Chinese national family. Great efforts are essential for us to make in order to pursue and inherit all these invisible spiritual culture heritages.
