991_Practical English Writing 973003526 蕭琬真EssayTopic: Should the fast food industry be blamed for national obesity? 973003526 蕭琬真 The fast food industry provides high-calorie, high-fat, high-sugar, butpoor-nutrition foods. These kind of junk foods cause health problems, includingobesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. However, the fast food industry did notadmit the impacts on national obesity. This essay will illustrate some of the reasonsfor blaming the fast food industry. The proportion of children obesity is growing faster and faster. The fast foodindustry makes many fantastic commercials. The corporation even creates cartoons toadvertise their products and gives toys as gifts to make great popularity amongchildren. Some small children even do not know the bad effect which the fast foodcauses to their body. They are brainwashed by the packing and only see the wonderfulside which is in front of them. Therefore, these companies should take the blame forthe negative influence. The business owners argue that there is no proof showing that the obesityproblem has direct relation between the fast food. They also claim that the consumersmake the choice. In some conditions this is true. However, though we cannot provethe fast food directly results in national obesity, we are sure that this kind of junk foodcould not make good effects for our health, too. Hence, they should not make goodcover or remarkable commercials to attract people. On the contrary, they should postthe warnings on the products to tell people the consequences which the fast food maycause. The healthy problems caused by obesity become one of the top ten leadingcauses of death. The fast food industry use the great marketing to fascinate people andcover the facts which make our health become bad. The businessmen have infinitedesires and continue to expand their enterprises. Thus, they need to be blamed and beurged to make some changes. The fast food industry should take some of the responsibilities for nationalobesity. The junk food they provide does make harms to people. We cannot act likewe did not see the issues and tolerate the behavior of the fast food industry.
991_Practical English Writing 973003526 蕭琬真Final Writing/ReportReport on James’ Collection Show, Sep. 25 For the most part, I think the idea of the combination between eastern andwestern style was well and nice. The eastern mode tended to be reserved, simpleand gray. On the contrary, the western form was likely to be colorful, vigorous, andmature. I believe that the conjunction might develop into a new fashion and I reallyexpect for that. However, I must report a few concerns. First, the designation was absurd. Iwas surprised to see the strange tailoring of the clothes. Every production was likethe same. I didn’t observe the main idea of the combination. More serious, itbecame weird and flat. Second, the use of colors was totally odd and bizarre. The color matchingcould not catch my eyes. I wouldn’t even want to see it more and don’t think that Iwant to put it on. They were obsolete and I could not understand the design point. Finally, the main idea of intersection between eastern and western wasdisappeared. I don’t think these designs present vogue or fashion and they wereeven far away from that. I do not wish to give the impression that the whole design was worthless. Iknow that the designer must had paid efforts into the work. However, I really hopethat we can see the remarkable and marvelous creations. I think it is a good way forthe designers to understand more about the cultures of the western and eastern. Sothat it is helpful to make touch and extraordinary designs.
