  • As the world popullation reaches a staggering 7-billion the amount of waste which we daily produce has exponentially risen. It is a common site for the citizens of developing countries to notice mountains of garbage lying on the side of the road of an interstate highway, therefore lawmakers in these countries have proposed mandatory recycling even at a small scale level such as individual homes. In thios essay I would like to elaborate my views on this proposal and explain why such actions are imperative for our survival.
  • Nowadays , more community expect to live more than ever before. In many nations around the world , growth expectancy will go higher . This essay will consider the main causes of rising apply average life expectancy , before proposing two possible solutions .
  • Nowadays, the crime rate is increasing rapidly, in HCM City this quota is nearly 40%, it is not an acceptable rate for a city to visit or have a trip alone for a foreigner or even the citizen live here. Because of that, the government provides a lot of punishment for criminals, one of them is penitentiary sentences. In my opinion, we must use the Education, job training and prison sentences with acceptable felony, not only use Education, appointment training or prison sentences.
  • A generation ago, teaching in a high school was considered an extremely well-respected and popular job, and in some countries this is still true. However, in many parts of the world, there has been a sharp drop in the number of young people who want to become high school teachers. This essay will look at the reasons for this and propose some solutions. One of the main causes of the problem is that teachers’ salaries are lower than many other jobs. Teachers’ pay has not kept pace with that of other professions, such as law or medicine. In the UK, for example, a doctor with five years’ experience will earn far more than a teacher with the same experience. The solution is for the government to raise teachers’ pay significantly, which would attract more people into the profession. Another problem is that many children do not behave well in class. That is to say, teachers often have to deal with pupils who disobey them, which often causes them to give up teaching. This tends to put off potential teachers as well. To tackle this issue, parents must give their children a sense of respect for teachers, in order to make children behave better in class. At third cause of the problem is that teaches often have too much work to do. Most teachers are snowed under with marking and paperwork, which means that they have to stay late at school and work at home in the evening. As a result, many teachers are tired and stressed, and their job has a negative effect on their family life. The way forward could be to cut teachers’ hours, and to take on more teaching assistants, which would make teaching and easier job. To sum up, teaching has become a much less popular job in many countries, due to reasons such as the salary, the working hours and pupils’ behavior. This is a serious problem, and unless we can get more talented young people to become teachers, the education of our children will suffer. My view is that the main responsibility for solving the problem lies with parents and the government.
  • Nowadays, among the youngster's community, having a quality lifestyle has become one of the trending life goals. In order to achieve the style of living many people migrate to different countries in search of money. Sometimes, In few nations, the lifestyles are decided by the government. In my opinion, the lifestyles when decided by the government turns into a rule and becomes a law hence imposing it on all the people irrespective of their financial background. So, it is always the best idea for people to decide on their lifestyles.
