Nowadays, the gap between the city and the countryside becomes more and more overt, which arouses colossal concerns. To understand the solution, let’s take a closer look at the causes of the gap at first.
The main reason of the gap is the unequal investment between city and rural area. China is a typical example. While more and more money is being invested to the coastal areas and big cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai, the lack of investment barriers greatly the society development of rural area and western regions
The low education level partly sharps the gap. There is no doubt that the prime force of productivity is education. However, because of poverty, thousands of people go to work without graduating from primary school. The poorer, the few children go to school. This bad cycle finally leads to the dream of rich becoming a dream that is hard to realize.
Moreover, the rural area is short of people with high quality. A survey proved that most of university students, whether they come from city or countryside, choose big cities instead of poor areas to work. The rural area can neither adept talent man nor attract talent man. No wonder the gap is increasing largely.
Hence, The government ought to knock itself out to decrease the gap as soon as possible. First, balance the investment between city and rural area. In addition, the education level should be improved, especially pay attention on raising high quality people. Besides, let more people realize the latent capacity of rural area in order to attract talent and investment. The set up of CCTV channel12-western region channel is a good example.
Only when the ways mentioned above are realized step by step, can the gap between the cities and the countryside be bridged.
Nowadays, many people argue against the government putting money on
building theaters and sports stadiums. They have claimed that medical care
and education would benefit the citizens and the country much more.
However, I believe it is worth building more theaters and arenas.
First, stadiums and arenas provide ideal places for people to have physical
exercises and entertainment. After a whole week’s hardworking, people can
enjoy a wonderful football game in the weekend, and refresh themselves
with a good relaxation there. Moreover, the physical exercises are good for
people’s health, which will ease the pressure of medical care.
Second, theaters and museums can be used as base areas of culture and his
tory education. The British Museum, which is the largest one in the world,
provides visitors with knowledge about the world culture and the arts. The
visitors to the museum are all overwhelmed by the magnificence of the
cultural and historical displays featuring mankind’s achievements. In additio
n, the performances shown in the theaters will also greatly enrich the lives o
f citizens. People can enjoy ballet, symphony, and Peking Opera in a theater,
which contain the soul of Chinese and western cultures.
Third, running theaters and stadiums can earn much money.And this amount
of money can do great contribution in other fields, including medical care,
and education. After winning the Olympic 2008,Beijing made a plan to spend
160 billion RMB building an Olympic Village. This will surely attract many
sports fans to China, which would be much rewarded, not only in economy
but the whole society.
You can tell form my commentary above,since building theaters and stadiums
benefit not only individuals but also the state, it is very worthy of these
expenses.And the government should speed up the pace of the constructions.
An argument often heard these days is that whether or not the government should put money on building theaters and stadiums. Some believe that instead of spending money on this area, Medical care and education, both of which are basic developing factors of one country should be spent more money on. After weighting the pros and cons, I disagree with this opinion.
Firstly, theaters and stadiums are best choice for people relaxing. Most of workers, especially white collar who often feel nervous after one day’s hard work, need to relax both mentally and physically. Compared with staying at home, it is much better way to stay in comfortable theater and listen to a wonderful concert.
In addition, going to theaters and stadiums affect the same effect as education and medical care. Having more chances to go to theaters can help them mold character. There is no better way to keep healthy than doing proper sports in the daily. In this way, the culture and health will be improved greatly, which plays the same role of education and medical care.
Moreover, theaters and stadiums are basis essential facilities to a developed city. Take holding an Olympic games as an example, it is no doubt it will take millions of money to build stadiums. Why the winner country is proud of that. Because this is a confirmation given by whole world.
Of course I don’t mean that the more theaters and stadiums, the better society will be, after all, nothing can take the important place of medical care and education.
In summary, the key point is to keep both of this two part developing. Only in this way, can all people live better in future.
