There has been a heateddiscussion about libraries at the age of information among people. Some people,especially the younger generation, challenge the value of conventionallibraries. When they need any information in their studies or work, they canturn to their computers for help. For this reason, they do not need to go to a libraryfor borrowing or returning one or two books.
While others, including mostold people as well as scholars, value libraries. They love libraries becausethey can enjoy peace and quietness in an isolated spiritual world. And theyalso have access to rare academic works needed for their studies in thelibraries.
In my view, conventionallibraries are still available though there is still much room for improving. Atthe Age of Information, as long as knowledge is respected and cherished,libraries won’t extinct from our lives. On the other hand, libraries should notrefuse the latest information technology, which will enable them to regainthose young readers.

In Beijing, there are numerous hutongs. Thelife of common people in hutongs brings endless charm to the ancient capital,Beijing. The hutong in Beijing is not only the living environment of commonpeople but also a kind of architecture. Usually, there is a courtyard complexinside hutong, with rooms shared by 4 to 10 families of about 20 people.Therefore, life in hutongs is full of friendliness and genuine humanity.Nowadays, with rapid social and economic development, many hutongs are replacedby new tall buildings. I hope hutongs can be preserved.

The motor vehicle has killed anddisabled more people in its history than any bomb or weapon ever invented. Muchof the blood on the street flows essentially from uncivil behavior of driverswho refuse to respect the legal and moral rights of others. So the slaughter onthe road may be regarded as a social problem.
In fact, the enemies of society onwheels are rather harmless people, just ordinary people acting carelessly, youmight say. But it is a principle both of law and common morality thatcarelessness is no excuse when one’s actions could bring death or damage toothers. A minority of these killers go even beyond carelessness to totalnegligence.
Researchers have estimated that asmany as 80 percent of all automobile accidents can be contributed to the psychologicalcondition of the driver. Emotional upsets can distort driver’s reactions, slowtheir judgment, and blind them to dangers that might otherwise be evident. Theexperts warn that it is vital for every driver to make a conscious effort tokeep one’s emotions under control.
Significant legal advances have beenmade towards safer driving in the past few years. Safety standards for vehiclehave been raised both at the point of manufacture and through periodicroad-worthiness inspections. In addition, speed limits have been lowered. Dueto these measures, the accident rate has decreased. The only real and lastingsolution, say the experts, is to convince people that driving is a skilled taskrequiring constant care and concentration. Those who fail to do all thesethings present a threat to those with whom they share the road.

Years ago, when I was a young assistantprofessor at the Harvard Business School, I thought that the key to developingmanagerial leadership lay in raw brain power. Ithought the role of business schools was to develop future managers who knewall about the various functions of business.
My thinking gradually became tempered by livingand working outside the United States, and by serving seven years as a collegepresident. During my presidency of Babson College, I added several traits orskills that I felt a good manager must possess.
The first is the ability to express oneself ina clear, articulate fashion. Good oral and written communication skills areabsolutely essential if one is to be an effective manager.
Second, one must possess the required set ofqualities called leadership skills. To be a good leader one must understand andbe sensitive to people and be able to inspire them towards the achievement ofcommon goals.
Next, I concluded that effective managers mustbe broad human beings who not only understand the world of business, but alsohave a sense of the cultural, social, political, historical, and theinternational aspects of life and society. This suggests that the exposure tothe liberal arts and humanities should be part of every manager’s education.
Finally, as I pondered the business andgovernment related scandals that have occupied the front pages of newspapers,it became clear that a good manager in today’s world must have courage and astrong sense of integrity. You must know where to draw the line between rightand wrong.

You open yourfront door to find your boss — who is also a cat. The bizarre can seemcompletely normal when you’re dreaming, perhaps because parts of your braingive up trying to figure out what’s going on.
ArmandoD’Agostino of the University of Milan in Italy decided to investigate thestrangeness of dreams. His team asked 12 people to keep diaries in which theywere to write detailed accounts of seven dreams. When volunteers could rememberone, they were also told to record what they had done that day and come up withan unrelated fantasy story to accompany an image they were given.
A month later,the reports were read back to each of the dreamers while their brain activitywas monitored with an fMRI scanner. Both dreams and fantasies seemed toselectively activate a set of structures in the right hemisphere of the brainassociated with complex language processing. Curiously, the activity in thisarea appeared to decrease as the narrative became increasingly bizarre. It isalmost as if the brain is giving up trying to make sense of the dream, saysD’Agostino.
“It’s alegitimate theory,” says PatrickMcNamara at Boston University. He thinks bizarreness mayresult from the brain’s attempt to symbolise complex emotions as it tries tostore memories. “When emotions are intense, they are harder to symbolise, soperhaps the dreams are more likely to be bizarre,” he says.
