核心提示:AYou want something you cant get by behaving within the rules, and you want it badly enough youll do it regardless
You want something you can’t get by behaving within the rules, and you
want it badly enough you’ll do it regardless of any guilt or deep regret,
and you’re willing to run the risk of being caught. That’s how Ladd
Wheeler, psychology professor at the University of Rochester in New York,
defines cheating. Many experts believe cheating is on the rise. "We’re
suffering a moral breakdown," Pinkard says. "We’re seeing more of the kind
of person who regards the world as a series of things to be dealt with.
Whether to cheat depends on whether it’s in the person’s interest." He
does, however, see less cheating among the youngest students. Richard
Dienstbier, psychology professor at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln,
believes that society’s attitudes explain much of the increase in
cheating. "Twenty years ago if a person cheated in college, that is
extremely serious, he will be dropped for a semester if not kicked out
permanently," he says. "Nowadays, at the University of Nebraska, for
example, it is the stated policy of the College of Arts and Science that
if a student cheats in an exam, the student must receive an "F" on what he
cheated in. That’s nothing. If you’re going to fail anyway, why not cheat?
Cheating is most likely in situations where the interests are high and the
chances of getting caught are low," says social psychologist Lynn Kahle of
the University of Oregon in Eugene.

Since life is short and the world is wide, the sooner you start exploring
it, the better. Soon enough the time will come when you are too tired to
move farther than the terrace of the best hotel. Go now.
No need, you may say, to tell that. But what I need to tell you is that
you will meet with a surprising amount of opposition the moment you try to
set out. Rubbish, you will reply. More people go abroad nowadays than ever
before; never has travel, particularly among the young, been more strongly
visit, of international exchanges. Perhaps not; but none of this, my dear
young friends, is travel. Travel is not going on a round coach trip for $
67 in all, or spending ten days at a hotel by the sea. Travel is when you
want to see how much money and resources you have and then set out, alone
or with chosen friends, to make an unhurried journey to a distant goal
without a set date for your return.
Real travel, then, is independence in action, and is not liked by most
parents. They don’t mind your going in a school party to Athens, because
they know just where you are and when you’ll be back, and they can
therefore permit you the imagination of freedom without for one second
letting you beyond their control. But what they cannot bear is that you
should travel all on your own, without giving them your address and return
date. In fact, their fears are quite reasonable because that shows how
much they love you. So in order to enjoy real travel and at the same time
put your parents’ mind at ease. It would be really important for you to
bear the following advice in mind.

In the West, advertisements are the fuel that makes mass media work. Many
TV stations, newspapers, magazines, radio stations are privately owned.
The government does not give them money. So where does the money come
from? From advertisements. Without advertisements, there would not be
these private businesses.
Have you ever asked yourself what advertising is? Through the years,
people have given different answers to the question. For some time it was
felt that advertising was a means of "keeping your name before the public"
And some people thought that advertising was "truth well told" Now more
and more people consider it in this way; Advertising is the paid,
non-personal, and usually persuasive presentation of goods, services and
ideas by some certain sponsors (发起人) through various media
First, advertising is usually paid for. Various sponsors pay for the
advertisements we see, read, and hear over the various media. Second,
advertising is non-personal. It is not face-to-face communication.
Although you may feel that a message in a certain advertisement is aimed
directly at you, in reality, it is directed at large groups of people.
Third, advertising is usually persuasive. Directly or indirectly it asks
people to do something. All advertisements try to make people believe that
the product, idea, or service advertised can benefit them. Fourth, the
sponsors of the advertisement must show their names. From the
advertisement, we can see if the sponsor is a company, or a single person.
Fifth, advertising reaches us through old and modem mass media. Included
in the old media are newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and films.
