蜘蛛丝上的水并不是露水dew，而是收集空气中的水汽collect moisture，这个在其他动物毛发上可以看到，但是人的头发上就没有。蜘蛛网是由纳米纤维nanofibre组成。给了一张图片解释了knot和puff的特点、位置，并说明了蜘蛛网收集水汽的过程(三步，多选题)。最后说虽然这个发现没有生物用途bio function，但对于干旱的地方很有价值的(有题考观点)。

Teachers may make mistakes, including those experienced teachers. Describe one of the mistakes teachers may commit.
Well, I think a common mistake that even experienced teachers tend to make is how to attract students’ attention. Perhaps a lot of teachers are really knowledgeable and prepare the classes hard enough, but they don't know how to interact and design the courses, so we may find it difficult to concentrate in class; like I remember when I was in my junior high school, my biology teacher, she was quite experienced, but she only read textbooks, like “frogs, are a kind of amphibian…” we tried so hard to focus, but it was only a matter of time before everyone got distracted. Honestly, we do want our teacher to interact and communicate more with us, to make the class both fun and academic.

Which advice would you give a friend who just got a job? Explain what the suggestion is and its importance .Please include specific details.
To a friend who just got a job, I will tell him or her to clarify his or her future plan. This means he or she should exactly know that what he or she intends to obtain. For example, what position to strive for, how to work for the position, and how long will it possibly take for he or she to realize the goal. Setting an appropriate goal can provide an orientation for a person which will lead him or her to a brighter future. First of all, after estimating his or her own personality, strengths and weaknesses, one should build a scientific and objective goal for the future position. This goal, most importantly, should take full use of his or her advantages. Second, based on the clear goal, a series of steps and measures for the goal should be built, including starting from basic works, improving abilities, striving for further promotions, etc. Also, a relatively specific period to reach the goal should be clarified. Facing a limited period, he or she will motivate himself or herself more for the future plan.

Which would you prefer: doing exercise everyday or only when you are free?
I would prefer to do exercise and go to the gym everyday, coz I am really into workout. I usually go there with my friends and jogging, swimming, dancing and weight lifting are all my favorites. Actually work out is not only a way for me to keep healthy, but also to regain my composure and strength after heavy sweating in the gym; however, the truth is I don't have sufficient time to hang around there each day, coz I am really busy, always bombarded with various examinations, papers, presentations, club activities etc; so for me, if I can go there like twice or three times a week, I am already satisfied.
相关背景内容The Yellowstone fires of 1988 together formed the largest wildfire in the recorded history of Yellowstone National Park in the United States. Starting as many smaller individual fires, the flames quickly spread out of control with increasing winds and drought and combined into one large conflagration, which burned for several months. The fires almost destroyed two major visitor destinations and, on September 8, 1988, the entire park was closed to all non-emergency personnel for the first time in its history. Only the arrival of cool and moist weather in the late autumn brought the fires to an end. A total of 793,880 acres (3,213 km2), or 36 percent of the park was affected by the wildfires.
Thousands of firefighters fought the fires, assisted by dozens of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft which were used for water and fire retardant drops. At the peak of the effort, over 9,000 firefighters were assigned to the park. With fires raging throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and other areas in the western United States, the staffing levels of the National Park Service and other land management agencies were inadequate for the situation; over 4,000 U.S. military personnel were soon brought in to assist in fire suppression efforts. The firefighting effort cost $120 million ($240 million as of 2014). No firefighters died while fighting Yellowstone fires, though there were two fire-related deaths outside the park.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: One can learn about another person by the books and movies that person likes.
To be honest, we can get a lot of information of middle-aged and old people from observing what kind of books they read and what kind of movies they watch, because they always tend to follow their habits and values.
In spite of the information that we can learn from the books and movies that person likes, however, it is irrational for us to take it for granted that we can figure out characteristics of all people, particularly when we take young people into account.

Many school require young children(aged 5-11)to work together in a small group instead of working alone to visit many activities. Do you think it is the best way to teach children?
这个分类其实来自于这样一个问题：Should Children go to Preschool?对于这问题大家也是各有见地，正方观点无外乎为培养孩子在集体生活的能力，具体可以写以下几点：
1.Children will learn many early social skills and manners
2.Children will realize that they are not the center of the universe
3.Children will begin to learn sharing, taking turns, following directions
4.Children will gain a sense of pride in their independence
5.Children will quickly and easily learn things like letters, numbers and other cognizant learning skills.
所以，这道题我们就分成 5-7岁vs. 7-10岁：让步段可以在上面的5个论点里面随便挑两个写，转折段相信睿智的同学们已经想出来了吧。不错，让步段就可以围绕“独立思考能力和培养个性”来写。
让步段：Certainly, by no means can we underestimate the valid part of the statement in question especially when children aged five to seven are involved in this topic.
转折段：It is true that children should be required to work together in a small group, but applying this advice to all children is ungrounded, particularly for children aged seven to ten.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Your job has more effect on your happiness than your social life does.
The good and evil are balanced by concealing our mundane thoughts of money. To be honest, for parents raising their children or say cultivate them can be a huge investment, in both long-spanning time and great deal of money. All of their painstaking is for only one purpose: let their children be happy, and in return for the money and effort they had spend. However, even in a material world of this age, we still have more than money considering a job.
The job gives us chances to perform, or show what we learned and make values at the field. Different jobs provide various types and different properties of work experience, which can be conceived equally based on interests and preferences. However, it happens that one offers more salary or wage than another, people would love to get higher paid or earn more to meet their satisfaction, therefore pursuing this type of jobs. But a money-based job can never give you chance to perform if it against your inner will, we all know that the standard payment of financial relatives are higher, but if one loves engineering instead of financing, then it can’t express himself truthfully or deeply as contradicting the will. Money is at most a disguised pathway for unwilling hearts.
Yet not many reasons supporting the idea that wealth brings good, and the fact that money-based job can be vicious as well as misleading. Jobs like drug dealer or prostitute earns a lot but totally bad and illegal that ruins from life to life. Money is no wrong at all, the truth is we are motivated or lured too much by frivolity, a desire of an extravagant life always affects us to make wrong decision, therefore we should never put the aspect of money at first place considering a job.
Think of a real reason to motivate us and make values that share inspiration, think of a real happiness to get the chance to express our heart, think that the money alone is never enough for a real good job.
