How to Enhance the Sense of Happiness
The sense of happiness is of great significance. As a vital factorof life, it brings us power, arouses our enthusiasm for loving life, and helps us to create apromising future. However, in contemporary China, it has become a trend for Chinese people tohold different views about happiness and the way to enhance it.
In addition to material basis, the sense of happiness also refers to several others aspects. Firstly, based on a recent survey, a majority of individuals admit that they are no longer content withbeing fed and clothed adequately, and their happiness depends more on their success in careers, friendship and love. Secondly, a great many people claim that health is the key to their sense ofhappiness. It is health that enables them to build up a solid foundation for anything significant.
As a college student, I am convinced that never can money equal happiness. To enhance oursense of happiness, we should educate, advocate and encourage our friends and classmates toenrich their knowledge, broaden their horizon and cultivate their ability.
Student Investors ID the Stock Market
China’s stock market is luring students looking to sec how their textbook teachings fare in real life. While there arc no concrete data on the student- investor, business professors say tbe market boom has boosted the number of students looking to play around with stocks. They invest in the stock market with money from parents and sometimes with amount equal to several times their annual tuition.
Some people are alarmed at the trend. As investing in the stock market involves many risks, they say，college students are very likely to lose, which may put students' &miiy assets at risk. However, some are supportive. As more and more students become sbarebolders, they will help raise tie general quality of shareholders and there will be more rational stock buyers in securities market， which is actually a good thing.
In my view, college students may give stock investment a try if possible. Stock investment may be a way to make fast money and help finance students* schooling. Even if the students are likely to lose in the stock market, it may still bring about valuable investment experience — they can、learn if they don’t tiy.

For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay based on the picture below. You should focus on the importance of being cautious about online comments and speech in the new media age. You are required to write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
Being Cautious about Online Comments and Speech
As is shown in the carton, people are often aroused with the feeling of anger or sympathy in this new media age when abundant information just swells within sight. The picture vividly reveals that modern people tend to receive and believe what they get from the media and then react to it directly.
From my perspective, one should think twice upon receiving online comments and speech. To start with, online information could be ungrounded and fictitious just to impress and catch attention. For instance, rumors go around that a celebrity couple is expecting a baby. What's more, reports online could be one-sided, that is to say, they are providing incomplete information and seeing things from one angle. In this way, it is hard for the audience to judge right from wrong, especially when the public opinions lean towards one side.
As an old saying goes, "Better don't read if you believe everything you read." Likewise, one should make his own judgement based on real facts and experience in the era of information explosion.
