March 1st: discussion

Yarly to Irving’s response.

After I reading Irving’s respond for discussion today, I found that he used some of my jokes as example. It does exists in our daily life, people from other provinces may say:” people from Yunnan are so barbarous and they all trade drugs with Myanmar.” Thus, we would always use these folks as jokes. But after I reading his article, I found that he is complaining and not thinking it’s funny, so I would not joke that way anymore and I don’t want him to joke that way either.Moreover, I have never been to Xi’an and I have also heard about the fake scenery-spot news. I hope that Irving didn’t go to fake ones. In addition, I am wondering how food there is?

El Paso is located in the far western corner of the United States of Texas State, which also near Mexico. El Paso means ‘the pass ‘ in Spanish’. Also El Paso has a transitional climate between cold dessert climate and hot desert climate with hot summers, usually with little humidity, and mild, dry winters. It was a part of Mexico, but after the Texas Revolution, it became a part of the United States.

Thinking critically after reading:

Question: Do you agree that universities have the same obligation to uphold diverse voices that you might expect of our government? Why or why not?

Answer:

I agree that universities have the same obligation to uphold diverse voices that you might expect of our government.

First of all, I claim that we should talk about the role and the obligation of universities. Michael Bloomberg have expressed his view about this from Commencement Speech at Harvard University in 2014 “The role of universities is not to promote an ideology. It is to provide scholars and students with a neutral forum for researching and debating issues—without tipping the scales in one direction, or repressing unpopular views.”(33rd paragraph). I cannot agree the idea more, In university, the scholars are not teaching students ways to solve problems, but to provide a environment that can help them develop themselves from debating. It is not about helping them what to do, but about how to figure out all their confusions.

Also, for the obligation of the government, it absolutely needs various voices. For example, when members from different parties are debating, they would try to convince the opposite and also they would improve themselves from it. Listening from the other side can be really beneficial and progressive.

Therefore, I think the obligations of universities and government are in common and I agree with the state that universities have the same obligation to uphold diverse voices that you might expect of our government.

The social media changes human’s life in a plenty of aspects, especially in my daily life. Since I came to the United States for the university courses, I live alone in a small room with my bed which has been placed my blue quilt and grey blanket, a desk with my textbooks and makeup, a closet. But sometimes, I would feel alone. At this time, many social media helps me to get closer with my family and friends and cultivate me to get rid of all these lonely feeling. With WeChat, I can always have video call with my family  and I can even show them the flower that I bought for today, fruit I bought for late night or a new light decoration which is like a bird in my room. All the works do not only make my parents feel not worry so much for me when I live alone, but also make  me to not feel so much homesick.

I also use some blogs to share my daily life in community to make friends or find classmate. At beginning of semester, students share their schedules for the new semester and post blog with”hey, anybody has same class with me”,and when they found classmates and get known with them, they would feel much more relax in class.  Or sometimes, when I have some confusion, I can    search it from internet.

Many of the benefits didn’t exist in the past, so after I experienced some development, I can feel much more incredible and convenient for life now.
