The Falls Park is one of the most renowned national parks in China, with over one million people visiting it each year.
The park lies in southern western Guizhou and is best known for its natural beauty, especially its spectacular waterfalls. This park is also home to an amazing variety of wild plants and animals.
I went there last summer. The trees there reached so high into the air that they reminded me of the skyscrapers in Hong Kong. And as I strolled around the park, I saw a whole bunch of meadows, waterfalls, rivers, valleys and mountains. The scenery seemed to change every few feet. I even rode to the bottom of the valley on the back of a donkey... Some people just took the shuttle bus to go around the valley, which I thought was boring.
When I felt tired , I just sat on a bench, staring into the sky and enjoying the natural beauty all around me.
Everything was good and the waterfalls were incredible.
The park is absolutely a must-see for nature lovers.
题目：Thomas Young The Last True Know-It-All
题型：判断题 7 简答题 6
The Last True Know-It-All
A Thomas Young (1773-1829) contributed 63articles to the Encyclopedia Britannica, including 46 biographical entries (mostly on scientists and classicists) and substantial essays on "Bridge, " "Chromatics, " "Egypt, ""Languages" and "Tides". Was someone who could write authoritatively about so many subjects a polymath, a genius or a dilettante? In an ambitious new biography, Andrew Robinson argues that Young is a good contender for the epitaph "the last man who knew everything. " Young has competition, however: The phrase, which Robinson takes for his title, also serves as the subtitle of two other recent biographies: Leonard
Warren’s 1998 life of paleontologist Joseph Leidy (1823-1891) and Paula Findlen’s 2004 book on Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), another polymath.
B Young, of course, did more than write encyclopedia entries. He presented his first paper to the Royal Society of London at the age of 20 and was elected a Fellow a week after his 21 st birthday. In the paper, Young explained the process of accommodation in the human eye —on how the eye focuses properly on objects at varying distances. Young hypothesized that this was achieved by changes in the shape of the lens. Young also theorized that light traveled in waves and he believed that, to account for the ability to see in color, there must be three receptors in the eye corresponding to the three "principal colors" to which the retina could respond: red, green, violet. All these hypothesis were subsequently proved to be correct.
C Later in his life, when he was in his forties, Young was instrumental in cracking the code that unlocked the unknown script on the Rosetta Stone, a tablet that was "found" in Egypt by the Napoleonic army in 1799. The stone contains text in three alphabets: Greek, something unrecognizable and Egyptian hieroglyphs. The unrecognizable script is now known as demotic and, as Young deduced, is related directly to hieroglyphic. His initial work on this appeared in his Britannica entry on Egypt. In another entry, he coined the term Indo-European to describe the family of languages spoken throughout most of Europe and northern India. These are the landmark achievements of a man who was a child prodigy and who, unlike many remarkable children, did not disappear into oblivion as an adult.
D Born in 1773 in Somerset in England, Young lived from an early age with his maternal grandfather, eventually leaving to attend boarding school. He had devoured books from the age of two, and through his own initiative he excelled at Latin, Greek, mathematics and natural philosophy. After leaving school, he was greatly
encouraged by his mother’s uncle, Richard Brocklesby, a physician and Fellow of the Royal Society. Following
Brocklesby’s lead, Young decided to pursue a career in medicine. He studied in London, following the medical circuit, and then moved on to more formal education in Edinburgh, G6ttingen and Cambridge. After completing his medical training at the University of Cambridge in 1808, Young set up practice as a physician in London. He soon became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and a few years later was appointed physician at St. George’s Hospital.
E Young’s skill as a physician, however, did not equal his skill as a scholar of natural philosophy or linguistics. Earlier, in 1801, he had been appointed to a professorship of natural philosophy at the Royal Institution, where he delivered as many as 60 lectures in a year. These were published in two volumes in 1807. In 1804 Young had become secretary to the Royal Society, a post he would hold until his death. His opinions were sought on civic and national matters, such as the introduction of gas lighting to London and methods of ship construction. From 1819 he was superintendent of the Nautical Almanac and secretary to the Board of Longitude. From 1824 to 1829 he was physician to and inspector of calculations for the Palladian Insurance Company. Between 1816 and 1825 he contributed his many and various entries to the Encyclopedia Britannica, and throughout his career he authored numerous books, essays and papers.
F Young is a perfect subject for a biography - perfect, but daunting. Few men contributed so much to so
many technical fields. Robinson’s aim is to introduce non-scientists to Young’s work and life. He succeeds, providing clear expositions of the technical material (especially that on optics and Egyptian hieroglyphs). Some
readers of this book will, like Robinson, find Young’s accomplishments impressive; others will see him as some historians have - as a dilettante. Yet despite the rich material presented in this book, readers will not end up knowing Young personally. We catch glimpses of a playful Young, doodling Greek and Latin phrases in his notes on medical lectures and translating the verses that a young lady had written on the walls of a summerhouse into Greek elegiaes. Young was introduced into elite society, attended the theatre and learned to dance and play the flute. In addition, he was an accomplished horseman. However, his personal life looks pale next to his vibrant career and studies.
G Young married Eliza Maxwell in 1804, and according to Robinson, "their marriage was a happy one and she appreciated his work" Almost all we know about her is that she sustained her husband through some rancorous disputes about optics and that she worried about money when his medical career was slow to take
off. Very little evidence survives about the complexities of Young’s relationships with his mother and father. Robinson does not credit them, or anyone else, with shaping Young’s extraordinary mind. Despite the lack of
details concerning Young’s relationships, however, anyone interested in what it means to be a genius should read this book.

In many countries, there is no enough recycling of waste materials (eg. paper, glass, cans).What are the reasons? What could be done to encourage recycling?
The accumulation of wastes has seriously posed a threat to human’s survival. One of effective ways to address the issue is to recycle waste. However, in fact, we seldom could find so called waste recycling sites. Thus, I will analyze the factors accounting for the phenomenon along with alternative solutions in this essay.
Several reasons may lead to this case as follows. Initially, public lack of awareness of recycling wastes. Most of us are enjoying benefits brought by modern technology and leading a high energy-consuming life in which they would consume excessive commodities and frequently discard wastes. But some people are unlikely to be aware of seriousness caused by discarded life or others do not know how to cope with these used items. In addition, imperfect recycling equipment may contribute to this situation to a large extent. Generally, recycling device involves recycling bins and employed techniques. However, in some countries, government may give priority to economy or other industries rather than set up salvage yard or develop new techniques of waste disposal. As a result, a considerable amount of wastes could not be recycled and even though garbage is put into recycling bins, they are not effectively utilized.
Accordingly, only government and citizens make joint efforts, can the problem be dealt with. Firstly, government should make the best use of public media platform. For instance, environmental institutions broadcast some charitable advertising via the Internet or television to popularize knowledge related to recovery of waste material, including the seperating rubbish. What’s more, local government should subsidize the establishment of recycling sites and the research of new techniques. For example, recycling stations or specialized companies could combine modern technology into waste disposal, processing classification and recycling, which could guarantee the high efficiency of refuse disposal to some extent
In conclusion, this phenomenon is attributed to several factors, including public’s lack of awareness and facility shortage, thus, government and individuals should take immediate steps to resolve it.
