his flight number is ca985, and it will arrive at 11:30 am, august 6. my uncle is tall and he is wearing glasses. and he will be in a blue jacket。
looking forward to your reply。
to many people even the word “work” sounds unpleasant ,not necessarily because they are lazy. the same man, who dislikes his job in the factory or even in the office, may work hard at the weekend ,painting the house or digging the garden。
what is the reason, then? in most cases, it is because these people simply do not enjoy the job they are doing .it does not give them any real satisfaction. it may be quite easy, like making up wooden boxes, but it is very boring. very often they are doing a job which is just a small part of a much larger one, such as attaching a door handle to a car. but the part they play in actually making the car is so small that they can never say: i have made something !
yet in modern society somebody has to do ordinary jobs such as cleaning streets because this is the way society is organized, no matter how ordinary a job is, it plays a part in society and therefore deserves our due respect. society cannot function a single day without the “dull and boring” jobs。
it is reported that thirty volunteers to be sent to the mars who are at least 18 years old will be chosen from all the globe by the year of 2015. the volunteers must make a full preparation that there is almost no chance to return to the earth once they are immigrated to the mars. what’s more, it is greatly important for them to try to keep a good relationship with other members. experts strongly warned that the living conditions on the mars are very hard, for not only the extremely cold climate would they meet with, but also loneliness and fear. on the contrary , the volunteers insist that they have got tired of the life on the earth, so greatly being eager to experience the unknown, mysterious life on the mars; meanwhile, if the would be succeeded , they would get the honor to be heroes of human beings。
in the passage, the author mainly stressed the importance of small and ordinary work, such as cleaning the street because of their essentiality for the organization of the society ,and thinks those doing such jobs should be respected greatly。
there is no doubt that what a cleaner does is more harder compared with any other jobs in the society. on one hand, they must get up in the early morning every day to clean the street while we are sill in the sweet sleeping dreams. on the other hand, they also suffer from less respect and lower pay, working all day on the street no matter it is sun shines strongly or snow, wind heavily。
nobody could imagine what an bad environment we would live in if there were no cleaners in the city. wherever we go, there is rubbish. maybe we would soon be drowned in the mountain of rubbish. even worse, if there were no change about that, diseases would spread at a very quick speed. is there anything that can be worse than this!
from the above, i can draw the conclusion safely that even the smallest and the most ordinary job, such as cleaning the street is also the necessary part to keep the society going smoothly. consequently, those who do those most insignificant jobs should get respected as much as those being engineers or doctors。

in order to encourage the students to take outdoor exercise, our school organized a mountain-climbing on april 10. hundreds of us took part in it。
it was a nice day. at 8:00 am, we gathered at the foot of daqing moutain and set out for the top in high spirits. all the way we were chatting, singing and laughing, enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful scenery. when some fell behind, others would come and offer help. about 2 hours later, we all reached the top. bathed in sunshine, we jumped and cheered with joy。
the activity benefited us a lot. not only did it get us close to nature and give us relaxation from heavy school work, it also promoted the friendship among us. what a wonderful time!
