Genetic engineering (questioning)
How would you like bananas or pineapples that ripen more slowly, or potatoes that absorb less oil and therefore make lower calorie French fries? Those are just a few of the genetically engineered food products expected to hit American stores in the next few years. While many experts are hailing the rapid development of genetic engineering in food as the way to feed a fast growing global population, others say the changes are planting the seeds for a host of future problems.
Is there such a thing as an 'Eastern' and 'Western' way of organizing business? (source of concern)
Many commentators have over the years attempted to draw a hard distinction between eastern and western ways of organizing and carrying out business . According to this ‘culturalist’ view of history, the success of Japan and later of other East Asian countries such as China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan can be attributed to their common Confucian traditions and their associated cultural characteristics (Dale, 1986; Rozman, 1993) C. Due to space limitations it is not possible to repeat this argument in detail. I would however like to take a look at an alternative schema evolving around the concept of 'societal trust' proposed by Francis Fukuyama (Fukuyama, 1995). I would then like to ask if it is still possible to use the old east/ west distinctions in describing world business organization?
Is ‘free trade’ a natural way of organizing the world's market place?(example)
Events such as "the Protest of the Century" which took place in Seattle, USA in December 1999, have focused the world’s attention on global ‘free’ trade. The protest was against the World Trade Organization (WTO), in particular its role in promoting world-wide free trade. In this essay. I would like to take a critical look at the concept of free trade. Is it a natural phenomena? Are free market economies common in world history? Or is this a relatively recent concept created by powerful nations and companies and imposed on the less powerful?
Teaching Engineering as a Social Science (contentious statement)
Today’s public engages in a love affair with technology, yet it consistently ignores the engineering at technology’s core. This paradox is reinforced by the relatively few engineers in leadership positions. Corporations, which used to have many engineers on their boards of directors, today are composed mainly of M.B.A.s and lawyers. Few engineers hold public office or even run for office. Engineers seldom break into headlines except when serious accidents are attributed to faulty design. While there are many theories on this lack of visibility, from inadequate public relations to inadequate public schools, we may have overlooked the real problem: Perhaps people aren’t looking at engineers because engineers aren’t looking at people.
Difference between the rural area and the urban communities
Polarization between the rural areas and urban communities is not a new topic at all to social workers or psychologists. When things come to the case in China, they are more complicated and intricate owing to multilevel reasons and causes. Therefore, to narrow the discrepancy between these two parts of the world seems even more challenging both to the government and to the public.
Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings and structures. A building reflects the scientific and technological achievements of the age as well as the ideas and aspirations of the designer and client. The appearance of individual buildings, however, is often controversial.
Another one: (Thesis Statement)
Nuclear power supplies 5% of the worlds’ energy from more than 400 plants. But with the exception of France and Japan, the rich world has stopped ordering new reactors. A technology which was once deemed both clean and “too cheap to meter” has proved to be neither. The industry’s chief hope now rests on the poor world. Western firms with reactors to sell will be relying on Asia, where electricity demand is growing at 8% a year. New reactors are planned in China, Taiwan, Indonesia, South Korea, Pakistan and India. It is good news for the reactors’ vendors; but these countries are making a mistake.
In our profit-centered society, unemployment has attracted wide attention even from the education field.（背景）Should we only offer elementary education to those kids or shall we continue to educate them till they graduate from secondary school? What will happen if we deprive them of the rights to continue to be educated when they are still in elementary school?（提问）In this essay, I will analyze why those kids should carry on with secondary education.（间接法）
______. _______. In this essay, I would like to take a look at this way of transportation. Is it a profitable business to all parties involved? Can it diversify and enrich the local gourmet structure? Or can it indirectly improve the employment ratio in the local place?
In a recent flight by an A350 from London to the manufacturing base of this type of plane, the four engines just consumed 40 gallons of fuel, which is less than the amount of fuel used by four cars traveling the same distance. The example shows the efficiency of air plane engines over common car engines. To be based on hard evidences and sound argument, the essay will discuss why traveling via air planes should not be discouraged.
If you were a graduate with history as your major, would you blame that you did not choose practical courses to cover on campus when you were rebuffed by job offers? This is not a brand new problem baffling college graduates with traditional subjects as their academic focus. In my eyes, both traditional courses like history and geography and those in majors are necessary for college graduates for the following reasons.
