Every year hundreds of thousands of people in China take civil service exams conducted at various levels in the hope of becoming government employees. Among them, college graduates are a fast-growing force that can't be ignored. The craze for being a civil servant is not limited to liberal arts majors, as it's also gaining popularity among science and engineering students.
In the final analysis, this growing trend among the youngsters is mainly attributable to two factors – ambitions and comforts. On one hand, many ambitious college graduates view these exams as a springboard to a higher social status, greater power and prestige, on which many of their other wishes rest. On the other, as being a civil servant generally means a as well stable income, enviable health care and pension programs, as other comforts of life, it's quite an appealing career option to many people, especially in this age of sluggish world economy.
Personally, the desire to be a government official is beyond reproach, as the nation and the people do need an injection of new blood into the civil service sectors. The fresh-faced college graduates, armed with lofty ideals, new vision, and strong drive, are undoubtedly among the best candidates.
Are We More Connected or More Alone?
Today, with the development of the times, science and technology in the continuous progress, so that the distance between the worlds has become more and more close, but in some ways also make people become more and more distant.
The emergence of mobile phones and computers, so that thousands of miles away can be anywhere and anytime calls and chat. Television news and mobile phone networks allow us to know what's happening abroad at home.In the past, people communicate with each other by means of writing letters, it takes a long time to receive an answer, and now open the phone through the video to see each other.This is the development of the times to narrow the distance between people, we are connected than ever before. However, in life, people always hold a cell phone, looking at the computer, linger in the network, and the peop le around him less and less communication.People communicate with each other from the mouth to the fingers, and become more and more distant from the people around them.

Speaking of bicycle, some people think it has outdated in many big cities. However, some people think that it is still popular for them because people can exercise themselves by riding bicycle. For me, I think people can get lots of benefits from riding bicycles.
First, we can become healthier by riding bicycles. Since people are busy with works, they have almost no time to do exercise. But if they ride bike to work, then they can practice themselves quite often. Consequently, they will be healthier.
Secondly, bicycle is good for our environment. In almost all big cities, the average temperature is a bit higher than countryside for there are too many car emissions there. We all know that people in big cities like to drive cars to go to work rather than taking public transportations. Therefore, our environment is polluted by lots of emissions. If more people join in the trend to ride bicycles to work, then our air quality will be improved obviously.
In conclusion, riding bicycle not only can make us healthier but also it is good for protecting our environment. So, we should encourage more people to ride bicycles quite often than driving cars.
