ISSUE232 - "The purpose of education should be to create an academic environment that is separate from the outside world. This kind of environment is ideal because it allows students to focus on important ideas without being held back by practical concerns."

In this argument, the author claims that an ideal academic environment which is separate from the outside world should be created for students in education system since students can focus on important ideas without being held back by practical concerns. In my opinion, however, I agree the view partially. I believe that campus should be open to outside world that is a favor of learning more knowledge that doesn't exist in book and school and students full-aspect development.
Admittedly, a thick academic environment contributes our study and research. In general, we are eager to have a quiet circumstance to study our course in school and we can focus on our study. Since there is no other outside interference, students in school can freely talk or discuss with each other. In this circumstance, obviously, it is a favor of student development.

However, we also notice that either students or school is one part of our society. They evitable has interaction with outside world as the interaction is good for school self and society. For students, their final goal is not just for everyday study in school but master enough knowledge and ability to be competent in society. As we all know, knowledge in book is limited, even is outdate in some aspects. At same time, outside world is changing and may put forward other novel require for graduate students in future job market. It is necessary and essential to let our students to know the development of our society. Anyone who blinds to this point and only concentrates on study or school life may not adapt future society with dramatic compelling.
Similarly, as an important research institute, school also introduces more outside condition and information to their students and teachers. One hand, more fellowship donated by companies and league can be applied to prompt our students and enhance their enthusiasm on study or scientific research. Furthermore, research goal can be induced by practical concerns which are important and urgent problem needed to be solved in society. It will have a clear effect for scientists in school to determine their research direction and goals which is a win-win thing for both school and the well-being of society. Without the information, it is just like a mosquito without head and a waste of school academic resource and money of government.
At the same time, we also should notice that extreme outside world has certain negative impact on academic environments more or less. There is an old saying that every coin has two sides. Therefore, there should be a balance on school and outside world.
In sum, absolute academic environment is bad for students and school and extreme outside world also have negative influence on school. So, we should seek a balance on school and outside world and desire a win-win case for our well-being of school and our society.



题目:ARGUMENT90 - The following appeared in an editorial on health problems in the country of Corpora.

"Some pharmacies now feature ultrasound machines that screen for an elevated risk of stroke. For a fee, a technician presses a probe against the neck to determine whether any plaque has thickened the walls of the main artery leading to the brain. Researchers have shown that a thickening of artery walls is associated with elevated stroke risk, and such scans typically find that anywhere from 5 to 20 percent of clients have detectable plaque. All pharmacies should offer this service, because early detection of increased risk for stroke will encourage clients to consult with their doctors and make important life-style changes to reduce their risk of having a stroke. This in turn will cause a decrease in overall medical costs in Corpora."

In this argument, the arguer draws the conclusion that, providing service of screening the potential stroke by a certain ultsound machines will cause a decrease in overall medical costs in Corpora, since clients will be encouraged to consult with their docotrs and change their life-style to reduce their reisk of having a stroke in early detection. To support the conclusion, the arguer points out researches' result that a thickening of artery walls is associated with elevated stroke risk and the screening can detect out plaque from 5 to 20 percent of clients. In my opinion, however, there is little credible evidence to support the conclusion as following reason.
To begin with, the argure unfairly assump that screening will cause a decrease in overall medical costs in Corpora. There is no exact data showing how many potential patients with risk of stroke and what rate is for mecial cost of stroke in Corpora. In common sense, we know there are also many dieases for human. However, the fact the arguer justifies the impact on medical costs throug one diease is absurd. It is entirely possible that there is a more severe disease which happens in Corpora and needed more money to be solved. Obviously, the medical costs in Corpora will be increase.
Secondly, there is no enough evidence indicates clients may turn to consult with their doctors and make some change on the their life-style. The arguer can't persuade me to accept the assumption, unless provding more credible evidence. It is higly possible that clients may seek may disregard it or seek other way to confront the proble.
Thirdly, the survey result of researchs is suspect. We are not told the information how many samples and respondents in survey respective. If there are 50 samples and only 5 respond. Obviously, the result can't persuade me to agree that the early detection favor decrease of stroke.
In sum, the
