Win Competition of Environment Protection for Beijing Although the 2008 Olympics are still three years away, another special competition has already started in Beijing. This time, the competitors are not the athletes from all over the world, but the people living in Beijing. The special competition is not held in a stadium, but in every street and every corner of Beijing. I suppose some of you may have already guessed what the special competition is. Yes, it is the competition of protecting our environment and creating a green Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games. Someone may ask who is our rival in this competition? The modern Los Angeles, the charming Sydney, or the historic Athens? No, none of them. The real rival is ourselves. It is our bad habits of neglecting to protect environment in our daily life. Several years ago, I was very lucky to have an opportunity to live in the United States for about two years. I not only enjoyed the beautiful environment there, but also appreciated the American people's active way of protecting their environment. Now, whenever the environment protection is mentioned, a beautiful view of California will arise in my mind: white clouds flying across the blue sky, green grassplot sprinkled with colorful flowers and small animals playing happily among the trees. I remember that at the beginning of my coming to America, I often went to my father's working place, the United States Geological Survey, to have fun. Each time I found a lot of people riding bicycles to their offices. Among the cyclists, an old man with white hair attracted my attention. Curiously, I asked my father," Why does the old man ride his bike to work every day? Doesn't he have enough money to buy a car?" Father laughed, "No, not because of money. Actually, he is one of the greatest scientists in the world. He can afford to buy a motorcade if he likes. He is just an environmentalist and usually doesn't drive unless going shopping, or in bad weather. In America, there are a lot of environmentalists, who actively protect their environment. For example, in Palo Alto city we are living now, there is even a bicycle-to-work day on May 19th every year to encourage people to decrease air pollution caused by cars". Later, I also learnt another interesting fact of environment protection there. In some states of America, in order to decrease air pollution, save energy and reduce traffic jams, state governments encourage people to take buses to work or to share a car among several people. They even set special "diamond lanes" in some main streets, which are only for the vehicles with 2 or more people. The positive actions of American people and the effective measures the American government takes in environment protection fully won my respects and deeply affected my consciousness in environment protection. When I was back in China, people often asked me: " What do you think of America?" I always bolt out:" Wonderful, especially the beautiful environment." Frankly speaking, after several years, the faces of my American teachers and friends have gradually faded away from my mind, but the blue sky, green grass and lovely animals in California often arise in my mind, and became my dream of visiting there again. The 2008 Olympics provide us with the opportunity to publicize and practise environment protection in Beijing. Is it possible for Beijing to Is it possible for Beijing to become as beautiful as California? The answer is "yes", but the dream needs every Beijing citizen's full support and active moves to accomplish. From now on, if every student who is driven to school can take bus or ride bicycle to school once a week, if every car owner goes to work in a car pool once a week, we can make a difference. If everyone can actively protect the environment in our daily life, the blue sky, green grass and lovely animals in California will appear in Beijing. Tiny streams can combine into a vast ocean, small trees can together be an immense forest. Beijing is often described as a beautiful and aged picture. If every Beijing citizen adds a trait of green on the picture, the whole Beijing will become an ocean of green. Let us unite together to win the competition of environment protection in Beijing, and present the world a big gold medal. That is "Green Beijing, Great Olympics " 给你找了一个中英文对照的，能好理解些. 打好环保比赛、创建绿色北京 尽管2008北京奥运会离我们还有3年之遥，但有一项规模宏大的特殊比赛已经拉开了序幕。

Hello everyone, my name is Lee. This is really a great honor to have this opportunity, and I believe I can make good performance today. Now I will introduce myself briefly. I am 20 years old,born in Guangdong province, south of China, and I am a senior student at Guangdong **University. My major is English. And I will receive my bachelor degree after my graduation in June. In the past four years, I spent most of my time on study. I passed CET4 and CET6 with a ease and acquired basic theoretical and practical knowledge of Language. Besides, I have attended several Speech competition held in Beijing, which really showed our professional advantages. I have taken a tour to some big factories and companies, through which I got a deep understanding of English for application. Compared to developed countries, unfortunately, although we have made extraordinary progress since 1998, our packaging industry is still underdeveloped, messy and unstable, and the situation of employees in the field is awkward. But I have full confidence in its bright future if only our economy can be kept at the growth pace still. I guess you may be interested in why I choose this job. I would like to tell you that this job is one of my lifelong goals. If I can work here,I will work hard. As to my character, I cannot describe it well, but I know I am optimistic and confident. Sometimes I prefer to stay alone, reading and listening to the music, but I am not lonely, for I like to chat with my classmates about almost everything. My favorite pastime is to play volleyball, to play cards or to surf online. From life at university, I learn how to balance study and entertainment. By the way, I was an actor in our amazing drama club. I have a few glorious memories on stage. That is my pride。
Low-Carbon Lifestyle, Our Best Choice Comparing with the past, do you feel any warmer these days? Maybe you don't take much notice of it. Nevertheless, on account of the burning of fossil fuels, the temperature has been increasing during the 20th century. In consequence, green house gasses( CO2)trap heat from the sun and therefore warm the earth, causing both rising of sea level and terrible climate catastrophe. Presume that the temperature keeps on going up, no bright sunshine will visit us, unclear air will choke us and heat waves will kill us mercilessly. However, much to our delight, nowadays countries and some organizations are aware of the importance of cutting the producing of carbon-dioxide. The U.N. Climate change conference opened in Copenhagen, Denmark on Dec.7th, 2009 arouses great concern from experts and officials, us included. Besides, in China, an effective law system has been set up to avoid producing too much greenhouse gasses. Well goes a saying that protecting the earth is protecting ourselves. At the same time we are supposed to undertake the responsibility to lead a low-carbon lifestyle, which is of great significance. Needless to say, low-carbon lifestyle means a lot to our society. First of all, so great a method is it to control the global warming that we are bound to make good use of it. Moreover, to some degree, it contributes a lot to our health. Absolutely there is a diversity of measures we can take so as to lead such an environmental-friendly life. For one thing, it is known to us all that large quantities of greenhouse gases are produced mostly by motor vehicles so that we, if possible, can walk or ride to school instead of depending on cars all the time. For another, we should spare no efforts to reduce energy in our daily life, for energy in the world today is decreasing rapidly. For instance, we can turn off electrical appliances if not necessary as well as using recycled materials. Furthermore, at our leisure, we can seek opportunities to plant more trees which can absorb carbon-dioxide. Last but not least, we are responsible for calling on others to lead low-carbon lifestyles. In brief, low-carbon lifestyle is nothing but the best choice for us and only in this way can we form a harmonious relationship with the environment.。
Don't waste your time, especially your youth Ladies and gentleman, my Chinese name is Amy Lin, and I come from biology science class 2, grate 2009.Before I begin my speech, please give me a chance to thanks the Life Science Institution .Because of the competition they held, I have a chance to stand here and communicate with you .And then for the speech is written by myself , if there are some mistake I make ,please forgive me and thank for your patience of listening my whole speech.Now, let me begin my speech .The topic is don't waste your time, especially your youthfulness.First of all, allows me to ask you one question, everyone here thinks yourself is so young, isn't it? I don't know what your answer is, but as for me, the answer is yes. If your answer is the same as me, don't you think your youth will flow with the time?Yes, I'm just 19 years old now, but what social kill I have? Fashion knowledge, sleeping, eating, having a date, or something else? Sometimes I'm so sad with that. But some students will think why not that does? University is a heaven to enjoy my life and enjoy my youthfulness. But, do you know that in some western countries or just in Singapore or Hong Kong, the students in college have stepped into the society and have been a smart person to face many interpersonal relation problems.How about us? Yes, it's true that we can't be blame that we haven't kept closed to society, because our school is located far from the centre of the city. But however, we can fully use the resource of the campus. Many students like to enjoy the silence and comfort of the campus. But I hope that more and more students can enjoy the experience of the department and the knowledge of the books in library. Though now you are a freshman or sophomore when you think you are too young to think about getting a job, you will regret why not get more social experience that time when you soon graduate. I live with senior sister who soon graduate. They often blame they are too old to do this or another. And at that time, I seem to see what my classmate will say in the future. In order to prevent the words“I'm not good for anything in this age , but I'm not young enough”, I won't waste any time in my life. Look back to what I've said in the beginning. In some developed countries, the young person gets more closely to the world than us. So if our Chinese students don't catch any time we have, how can we beat them and how our country keep a foothold in the world. Our country needs us, especially our youthfulness, but, what you want to do is up to you. Thank you.。
The City Mouse and the Country Mouse 【By Kaiser3344】
Once there were two mice. They were friends. One mouse lived in the country; the other mouse lived in the city. After many years the Country mouse saw the City mouse; he said, "Do come and see me at my house in the country." So the City mouse went. The City mouse said, "This food is not good, and your house is not good. Why do you live in a hole in the field? You should come and live in the city. You would live in a nice house made of stone. You would have nice food to eat. You must come and see me at my house in the city."
The Country mouse went to the house of the City mouse. It was a very good house. Nice food was set ready for them to eat. But just as they began to eat they heard a great noise. The City mouse cried, " Run! Run! The cat is coming!" They ran away quickly and hid.
After some time they came out. When they came out, the Country mouse said, "I do not like living in the city. I like living in my hole in the field. For it is nicer to be poor and happy, than to be rich and afraid."

Dear leaders, teachers, dear students: Hello everyone, today my topic is "faith, beyond the self". Helen Keller had such a vivid image of the words: "when a person felt the urge to fly, he would never be content to crawl on the floor." is the ideal, it is a kind of belief, she accepted the challenge of life, created the miracle of life. She is deaf, weak woman in one actually graduated from the Harvard University, and all of life force running calls, built up a charity for the benefit of persons with disabilities, was selected for the twentieth Century ten American Idol. Ideal and faith like burning fire so that she was out of the darkness, out of the dead, ideals and beliefs as the great wings, help her flew up into the sky. In a sense, people are not living in the material world, and Live in the spirit world, live in the ideal and faith. For human life, to survive, as long as a bowl of rice, a cup of water on it; but to be wonderful, she has spirit, we should have lofty ideals and firm beliefs, ideals and beliefs so that poor people become a millionaire, so dark, people see the light, make people see a glimmer of hope, make the dream a reality. Let me tell you a story: the vast desert, an expedition in the difficult trek. The head of the scorching sun baked, the explorers sweat like rain. The mouth parched and tongue scorched. Unfortunately, they have no water. Water is the survival of their faith, faith, like a flat frame, a lost soul, invariably look to the captain. It can do the captain took a kettle from the waist, hands up, firmly shook, shouted in surprise:" Oh, I have a pot of water! But before crossing the desert, no drink. "The heavy kettle from the players hands in order to pass, the original kind of desperate face has also revealed a strong expression, we must get out of the desert belief support they staggered forward step by step. Move. Looked at the bottle, they pursed his chapped lips, suddenly add strength. Finally, they escaped out of the vast expanse of the desert, we cried when a long time staring at that to support their belief in the kettle. Captain carefully unscrew the bottle cap, slowly out of the sand is a continuously his sincere. Said:" as long as the heart has the firm faith, dry sand can sometimes become cool springs. "Black leader Martin Ruud Kim famously said:" in this world, no one can make you down. If your own beliefs Still standing. "Yes, even in the most difficult time, also don't put out the faith the hearts of the torch. The students, no matter what your current results, no matter how you now, as long as the firm faith, beyond the self, you will have a direction, you will have a goal you have, the power of life, you will have a hope of success.尊敬的领导，老师，亲爱的同学们： 大家好，今天我演讲的题目是《坚定信念，超越自我》. 海伦 凯勒有这样一句非常形象而生动的话："当一个人感觉到有高飞的冲动时，他将再也不会满足于在地上爬."正是有了远大的理想，正是有一种信念，她接受了生命的挑战，创造了生命的奇迹.她，盲聋哑集于一身的弱女子竟然毕业于哈佛大学，并用生命的全部力量奔走呼告，建起了一家家慈善机构，为残疾人造福，被评选为20世纪美国十大英雄偶像.理想和信念像熊熊燃烧的烈火使她才走出黑暗，走出死寂，理想和信念像巨大的羽翼，帮助她飞上云天. 从某种意义上说，人不是活在物质世界里，而是活在精神世界里，活在理想与信念之中.对于人的生命而言，要存活，只要一碗饭，一杯水就可以了；但是要想活得精彩，就要有精神，就要有远大的理想和坚定的信念.理想信念使贫困的人变成富翁，使黑暗中的人看见光明，使绝境中的人看到希望，使梦想变成现实. 下面我给大家讲一个故事： 浩瀚的沙漠中，一支探险队在艰难地跋涉.头顶骄阳似火，烤得探险队员们口干舌燥，挥汗如雨.最糟糕的是，他们没有水了.水就是他们赖以生存的信念，信念破灭了，一个个像塌了架，丢了魂，不约而同地将目光投向队长.这可怎么办 队长从腰间取出一个水壶，两手举起来，用力晃了晃，惊喜地喊道："哦，我这里还有一壶水！但穿越沙漠前，谁也不能喝."沉甸甸的水壶从队员们的手中依次传递，原来那种濒临绝望的脸上又显露出坚定的神色，一定要走出沙漠的信念支撑他们踉跄着，一步一步地向前挪动.看着那水壶，他们抿抿干裂的嘴唇，陡然增添了力量. 终于，他们死里逃生，走出茫茫无垠的沙漠，大家喜极而泣之时，久久凝视着那个给了他们信念支撑的水壶. 队长小心翼翼地拧开水壶盖，缓缓流出的却是一缕缕沙子.他诚挚地说："只要心里有坚定的信念，干枯的沙子有时也可以变成清冽的泉水." 黑人领袖马丁 路德金有句名言："这个世界上，没有人能够使你倒下.如果你自己的信念还站立着的话."是的，即使在最困难的时候，也不要熄灭心中信念的火把. 同学们，不管你现在的成绩怎么样，不管你现在的基础怎么样，只要坚定信念，超越自我，你就。
A computer game is a computer-controlled game. A video game is a computer game where a video display such as a monitor or television is the primary feedback device. The term "computer game" also includes games which display only text (and which can therefore theoretically be played on a teletypewriter) or which use other methods, such as sound or vibration, as their primary feedback device, but there are very few new games in these categories. There always must also be some sort of input device, usually in the form of button/joystick combinations (on arcade games), a keyboard & mouse/trackball combination (computer games), or a controller (console games), or a combination of any of the above. Also, more esoteric devices have been used for input (see also Game controller). Usually there are rules and goals, but in more open-ended games the player may be free to do whatever they like within the confines of the virtual universe. The phrase interactive entertainment is the formal reference to computer and video games. To avoid ambiguity, this game software is referred to as "computer and video games" throughout this article, which explores properties common to both types of game. In common usage, a "computer game" or a "PC game" refers to a game that is played on a personal computer. "Console game" refers to one that is played on a device specifically designed for the use of such, while interfacing with a standard television set. "Video game" (or "videogame") has evolved into a catchall phrase that encompasses the aforementioned along with any game made for any other device, including, but not limited to, mobile phones, PDAs, advanced calculators, etc. Beginnings The first primitive computer and video games were developed in the 1950s and 60's and ran on platforms such as oscilloscopes, university mainframes and EDSAC computers. The earliest computer game, a missile simulation, was created in 1947 by Thomas T. Goldsmith Jr. and Estle Ray Mann. A patent application was filed on January 25th, 1947 and U.S. Patent #2,455,992 issued on Dec 14th, 1948. Later in 1952, was a version of tic-tac-toe named Noughts and Crosses, created by A. S. Douglas, as part of his doctoral dissertation at Cambridge University. The game ran on a large university computer called the Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Calculator (EDSAC). In 1958, William Higinbotham - who previously helped build the first atomic bomb - created Tennis for Two at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York to entertain visitors at the lab's annual open house. In 1962 MIT's Steve Russell created Spacewar! and John's Great Adventure. The game ran on a PDP-1 mini-computer. The game spread quickly to universities and research facilities around the country. In 1968 Ralph Baer, who would later be known as the "Father of Video Games", applied for a patent for an early version of a video game console named the "Television Gaming and Training Apparatus." In 1967, Baer created a ping-pong like game for the console that resembled Tennis for Two (and the future 1972 arcade game Pong). He worked with Magnavox to create and release the first console, named the Magnavox Odyssey, in 1972. The Golden Age of Arcade Games Arcade games were developed in the 1970s and led to the so-called "Golden Age of Arcade Games". The first coin-operated arcade game was Computer Space, created in 1971 by Nolan Bushnell. In these pre-arcade days, the game was placed in bars and taverns. The game required players to read a set of instructions before playing, and never became a hit in the bar scene. In the spring of 1972, Bushnell attended a demonstration of the Magnavox Odyssey system in Burlingame, California, and played Baer's ping-pong game for the first time. Soon afterwards Bushnell and a friend formed a new company, Atari. Nolan envisioned creating a driving game for arcades. He hired an electronic engineer named Al Alcorn and directed him to build a ping-pong game. The game Alcorn created was so much fun that Nolan decided to go ahead and market it. Since the name Ping-Pong was already trademarked, they settled on simply calling it PONG. The intuitive interface led the game to be wildly successful in the bar scene and ushered in the era of arcades. Consoles and beyond The 1970s saw the release of the first home video game consoles. The patent for Ralph Baer's Magnavox Odyssey was granted in 1972, and paved the way for the 。
