Re-employment of Laid-off Workers
As we oil know, there are more and more laid-off workers in China now mainly because of the rapid changes in the economic reform. Among them are the old and the young, men and women, and even some well-educated graduates. What's more, with more and more workers being laid-off, lots of social problems have appeared.
As a result, the issue of re-employment of the laid-off workers has become one of the hot topics and drawn much attention from governments at all levels. A number of solutions are being offered. First of all, re-training programs should be organized to help the laid-off workers to learn new skills to help them keep up with the changing society. Besides, our government should take some necessary measures to create
more new opportunities of employment for these peopie. Finally, colleges and universities should reform their courses to adapt to the development of economy so as to provide qualified studens to meet the needs of society.
In my opinion, solving the problem of re-employment of laid-off workers needs the effort of the whole society, including our government, the laid-off workers themselves and all those who are ready to offer their help, Moreover, the lay-off workers, especially the well-educated graduates, should lower their standards before looking for satisfying jobs.

Boys and girls,
Attention, please! I have an announcement to make.
Our military training will last 11 days from Aug. 15th to Aug. 25th. It will take place in the school playground. The training time is from 7:30 to 11:30 in the morning and 2:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon. Everyone must attend the military training on time. Nobody is allowed to be absent from the training or be late for it. Ask the drillmaster for leave if necessary. Furthermore, we must be in military uniforms, wear strong sports shoes and bring our own cups. Finally, I have to stress that everyone should work hard during the training so that we will perform perfectly in the final test!
That's all. Thank you!
My View on the “Campus Star” Contest
At an age of character and individuality being encouraged and demonstrated, we see various “stars” pop up—singing stars, dancing stars, movie stars and sport stars, etc. Many schools even hold contests to choose their “Campus Stars”. Although these activities make our cultural life in campus more colorful and varied, a lot of problems spring up at the same time.
First of all, these activities can result in the swelling of vanity in some students, making them become arrogant, or even feel superior to other students. Moreover, these activities can greatly distract the students from their study. In order to become a star, they will, without any doubt, spend a lot of time and energy on the preparation and competition. The focus of their academic life will be shifted, and even worse, they can become too enthusiastic about extracurricular activities and hate the academic knowledge and skills they need to grasp for their future development.
On the whole, I think these various “Campus Star” contests should be controlled in the campus. After all, schools are different from any other social institutions. Extracurricular activities should be encouraged, but they should be helpful to the student's academic study and all-round development.
