校长推荐 nomination from headmaster

酝酿已久的北京大学 “中学校长实名推荐制”终于正式亮相,全国39所中学获得北大2010年“校长实名推荐”资质。目前北大将开始审核推荐生资料。“一考定终身”已然广为诟病,但“校长实名推荐制”也触动了很多人的神经,引发人们的热议。

请看《中国日报》的报道:

Hong Xinge, from Tianyi High School in Wuxi, is believed to be the youngest of 90 students nationwide to receive nominations from their headmasters to attend Peking University.

无锡市天一中学的洪欣格据称是全国90名获得北大校长推荐名额的学生中年龄最小的一位。

文中的nominations from their headmasters就是指“校长推荐”,也可以用recommendation from headmaster来表示。这个pilot program(试点计划)是university entrance system(高考制度)改革的一次尝试,例如此次入选的洪欣格就被大家公认为all-rounder(全才、通才)。她在获得推荐名额后,会去这座world-renowned institution(世界知名学府)参加面试。

在secondary education(中学教育)之后,没能参加higher education(高等教育)的很多人还会选择接受further education(继续教育)。有身体障碍或学习障碍的儿童还可以参加special education(特殊教育)。而一个人的educational background(教育背景)则事关职业发展。

It's time to take a closer look at the cause of all those mine disasters

Wu Hangmin, in Beijing News, asks why this happened only a few days after two provincial safety supervision groups had visited the mine. High-ranking government officials had promised to make safety their top priority. There may have been a lot of inspections, but the effectiveness of the supervision has to be called into doubt, writes Wu. Shouldn't the inspectors inspect the quality of their own work, Wu asks.

Is fleeing big city good for us?

SOME say it's a revolutionary social phenomenon; some call it a trendy new way of life; others write it off as escapism.

More young white-collar, urban workers are reportedly quitting their jobs and moving out of the city to enjoy a more relaxed work and life style. Some move to smaller cities, others are said to have quit their glamorous day jobs and opened virtual shops on the Internet.

Is fleeing big city good for us?

 

SOME say it's a revolutionary social phenomenon; some call it a trendy new way of life; others write it off as escapism.

 More young white-collar, urban workers are reportedly quitting their jobs and moving out of the city to enjoy a more relaxed work and life style. Some move to smaller cities, others are said to have quit their glamorous day jobs and opened virtual shops on the Internet.

 Media commentators have noted the contrast of this to the rapid influx of thousands of migrant workers and better educated youth in major Chinese cities. These young people struggle hard to make a living amid intense competition, while hoping to change their lives. Meanwhile, some better-off urban people are fleeing the city in droves. Who's the wiser? Which life is healthier? People have really different views on this.

 

How do you see it? Do the young urbanites fleeing the city mean a new form of social progress?

 YES

It's just the choice some young people make.

1. The mass migration to the city can't be sustained. If this trend continues, urban populations could spiral out of control and life would just get harder. Some people need to move out to maintain a balance.

2. Some of these people leaving the city are successful professionals. For them, small-city life and flexible employment mean a step up. If it works well for them, why couldn't this be social progress?

3. Young professionals leaving the city could mean many other opportunities, such as greater transportation and electronic communication demands. This could prove helpful to both the economy and society as a whole.

 

NO

Scattered reports of some young people moving out doesn't constitute a social shift.

1. We can't say exactly how many yuppies are moving out of major cities. Even if many of them are, it could be for a variety of reasons, not just because of urban stress.

2. Giving up on city life means these young people can't take the pressure and are running away. This is not a positive approach and it certainly doesn't represent social progress. That “idyllic” small-city life could just turn out to be more difficult.

3. This “new” way of life, even if it does exist, works only for a small number of people. Most young people at that age are still looking for success in their career and a way to make something of themselves in the city.

Online applications: how can you possibly stand out?

“Job search from your own home”, page 16, Oct 28

Online applications are being accepted by many enterprises, especially foreign ones, as the first step of the evaluation process for job seekers. An online application usually covers not only academic performance and work experience but also open questions and even a comprehensive test of personality and professional potential. It's no longer a simple click sending your resume.
