WRITING TASK 1 IELTS SIMON

WRITING TASK 1 IELTS SIMON

Line graphs always show changes over time. Heres some advice about how to describe them: · Try to write 4 paragraphs introduction, summary of main points, 2 detail paragraphs. · For your summary paragraph, look at the big picture what changes happened to all of the lines from the beginning to the end of the period shown (i.e. from the first year to the last). Is there a trend that all of the lines follow (e.g. an overall increase)? · You dont need to give numbers in your summary paragraph. Numbers are specific details. Just mention general things like overall change, highest and lowest, without giving specific figures. · Never describe each line separately. The examiner wants to see comparisons. · If the graph shows years, you wont have time to mention all of them. The key years to describe are the first year and the last year. You should also mention any special years (e.g. a peak or a significant risefall). · Start describing details (paragraph 3) with a comparison of the lines for the first year shown on the graph (e.g. in 1990, the number of...). · Use the past simple (increased, fell) for past years, and will or is expectedpredicted to for future years. · Dont use the passive (e.g. the number was increased), continuous (e.g. the number was increasing), or perfect tenses (e.g. the number has increased).

Topic True storiesReading different kinds of books are one of the favorite hobby of thepeople. Many people read books and different kind of stories in theirleisure time. However, some people believe that only those booksshould be read that are about real events, real stories, on establishedfacts, etc. I do agree with the statement that only these books shouldbe read which are on true incidents and well established factsbecause, it teach us how to cope up with such situations when itoccurs, what lessons do they infer while reading real eventshappened around the world. When reading such books which arebased on true stories, one feels that if such situations occurs to himhow would he handle it or what steps will he take when tacklingdifficult and puzzled circumstances. Often real events mentioned inthe books tries to motivate us how such people bore hardships togain success or how they faced difficulties in solving their problemsand even such events where people find themselves in such adilemma where it took a lot of time to handle it in a normal way.Real events occurred with real people give us a lesson whatmeasures they took when encountering difficult problems in life.Every story has a lesson because some stories are not only based ontrue incidents but also give us lessons that what purpose or idea wasbehind these stories. It also helps us in approaching better ideaswhen we aretrapped or facing same situations in our life. Therefore, books thatcontains true stories also helps us to gain better ideas and lessons.In conclusion, people should read only those books that are aboutreal events of real people with established facts because these factsshows us the true meaning of life, could gain more knowledgeabout real events happening in the world, could learn differentkinds of lessons these real stories provides us with.

IS DAILY HOMEWORK NECESSARY

IS DAILY HOMEWORK NECESSARY

Is daily homework necessary?I do strongly this idea that teachers should assign homework tostudents every day. There are numerous reasons why I advocate theattitude of assigning homework everyday, and I would in hereexplain a few of the most important ones.At first, homework is helpful for students to recall the knowledgethat they study at the same day. In general, students would like toplay. After going home, if there is no homework, they will only playall kinds of games. Maybe they will forget all knowledge. Buthomework will force them to sit their chairs to review what theylearn. So, homework will help students study better.Secondly, homework will help teachers understand how theirstudents study. Through examining their students` homework,they can know whether their students understand what they teachin the class. I feel that it will help teachers improve theireducational quality.Of course, there are some people who contradict homework becausethey think that assigning homework everyday will enhance thestudents` load. But I feel that study is the most important task of astudent. After going home, they should spend some timereviewing their knowledge. Only like this, they can acquire progress.After understanding the reasoning above, I think that nobodywould doubt this idea that teachers should assign homeworkeveryday.

IELTS SPEAKING TIPS 3 SIMPLE TIPS

IELTS SPEAKING TIPS 3 SIMPLE TIPS

IELTS Speaking: 3 simple tips Here are three simple tips that could make a difference to your score: 1. Be confident Although you might be nervous, try to speak clearly and confidently. Smile and be friendly with the examiner. As you go into the exam, tell yourself that you have prepared well and that youre going to enjoy the challenge. 2. Know that you are prepared You will feel much more confident if you know that you have prepared and practised for the test. You should know exactly what to expect. For example, have you prepared some common topics (e.g. describe a place, a person, a hobby) for the short presentation? Are you ready for a past and a future question in part 3? 3. Speak naturally Try to enjoy a normal conversation with the examiner. Instead of worrying about your grammar, listen carefully to the questions and try to give natural answers. Most of the questions are about you, your life and your opinions, so its best to be open. I used to be an examiner, and I always found the job more interesting when students spoke openly about their opinions and experiences. Note: You are not marked on body language, but Id still recommend that you try to act in a friendly, confident manner.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE IMPORTANT QUALITIES OF A GOOD ROOMMAT3

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE IMPORTANT QUALITIES OF A GOOD ROOMMAT3

What are some of the important qualities of a good roommate?While going to school or university, we usually have to live withroommates. Since the roommates are those with whom we spendquite a lot of time, we often expect our roommates to be sincere,kind and magnanimous, for these qualities are deemed as some ofthe important qualities of a good roommate.Firstly, a good roommate should be sincere without doubt. Many ofus have the experience of being low in mood and eager to findsomeone who can listen to our story and give some positive advice.In such cases, sincere roommates are naturally the best choice, withwhom we can sit bay the table, or lie in bed chatting. Since we areall sincere, we can trust each other and talk about our own thoughtsand feelings, which will do much good in helping us get back togood mood again.Another equally significant quality of a good roommate is kindness.It is this quality that keeps driving us roommates to care for eachother and help each other. I`d like to take mydorm as a good example to illustrate this point. Whenever some onefell ill, others will voluntarily take her to the hospital, buy medicinefor her, make meals for her, and so on. We all appreciate such akind atmosphere, and we love each other.Furthermore, a good roommate should also be magnanimous. Aswe are still students, and have not much experience of living withothers, we may probably do something that will hurt ourroommates` feeling unconsciously. Without the quality ofmagnanimity, a roommate will be easily irritated, and the friendshipwill be easily broken.In a word, sincerity, kindness and magnanimity are the three mostimportant qualities of a good roommate in my mind. Fortunately, Iand my roommates all have such qualities, which has resulted in ourcozy dorm and long lasting friendship.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE IMPORTANT QUALITIES OF A GOOD ROOMMATE

What are some of the important qualities of a good roommate?Are you a student? Do you live with somebody? Are you satisfiedliving with your roommate? Do you have some requirements forlooking for a roommate you like? Most students who live withsomebody likes to have a roommate with some necessary qualitieswhich is friendly, considerable, and responsible.For the first important quality, a roommate should be a friendlyperson. As we know, nobody likes to live with a person who isdifficult to communicate and make friends; alsohe/she has some weird characters, which make you always feelunhappy whenever you face your roommate at home. To get acomfortable environment to live for gaining a satisfied student life,making a good study, and also getting a great relationship with yourroommate and both of your friends, every student want to find akind roomier.The second vital quality is student like to live with a person who isconsiderable for their friends. Because students leave their familyand share apartment or house with somebody, they and theirroommates are in the same boat as if they are a kind of family. Aswe known, when we live with our family, we get cares from ourfamily and we also take care of everyone in the family. So, for moststudents, even though they live without their families, they still wantto live with their roommates like a family. This makes everybodyfeel cozy and happy without his or her families; therefore, they willnot feel alone so much. They treat each other like their sisters orbrothers. For example, like me, I am a international student and Ihave a roommate too. I remembered that once I caught a heavy cold,and I felt so bad as if I was in the hell. At that time, I seriouslymissed my parents. I thought if I had a ticket to China, I would goback as soon as possible.However, I changed my mind soon. Because my roommate warmed

HAS COMPUTER MADE LIFE EASIER

HAS COMPUTER MADE LIFE EASIER

Has computer made life easier?The information technology has developed so fast that computers,which were completely unknown decades ago, have stepped intoalmost every household in the world and brought deep impact to theway people work, live and entertain. However, like the saying goesevery coin has two sides, computers have also brought some troubleto people.As far as work and business are concerned, computers have broughtrevolutionary change to our traditional practices. It greatly increasesthe efficiency and effectiveness of our work and it is also due tothem that E-commerce; E-banking is made available. For example,because of them, there is no need for you to queue in the shoppingmall as the shopping cart and goods are just one click away in frontof you. What is more about computer is that it makes possible to dotwo or more things at one time. You could communicate with yourfriends and do shopping or playing games or watching moviessimultaneously.However, computers do have a lot of disadvantages which we shallconsider. First, they are machines which are not infallible. Viruscould easily spread out through computers and cause chaos, whichdestroys all the data which has been stored in them or make somefatal mistakes to business or work. Secondly, though E-commercefacilitates our life, computers encourage credit fraud or ID fraud,which means someone else could pretend our identity and themachine could not differentiate. Last but not least, we have nocontrol over the content on computers, which might exposeunhealthy content to children and seriously affect their development.Though discussed above, I hold the idea that the advantagesbrought by computers far outweigh their disadvantages. As long aswe could use them wisely, like control certain website to bebrowsed to children, use anti-virus protection and encryption code,we could make them useful to the greatest advantage of human

A DIALOGUE ON LABS

A DIALOGUE ON LABS

Student: Is this our final dialogue? Professor: I hope so! You’ve been becoming quite a pain, you know! Student: Yes, I’ve enjoyed our conversations too. What’s up here? Professor: It’s about the projects you should be doing as you learn this material; you know, actual programming, where you do some real work instead of this incessant talking and reading. The real way to learn! Student: Sounds important. Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Professor: Well, hopefully those using this book actually do look at this part earlier, all throughout the course. If not, they’re really missing something. Student: Seems like it. So what are the projects like? Professor: Well, there are two types of projects. The first set are what you might call systems programming projects, done on machines running Linux and in the C programming environment. This type of programming is quite useful to know, as when you go off into the real world, you very well might have to do some of this type of hacking yourself. Student: What’s the second type of project? Professor: The second type is based inside a real kernel, a cool little teaching kernel developed at MIT called xv6. It is a “port” of an old version of UNIX to Intel x86, and is quite neat! With these projects, instead of writing code that interacts with the kernel (as you do in systems programming), you actually get to re-write parts of the kernel itself! Student: Sounds fun! So what should we do in a semester? You know, there are only so many hours in the day, and as you professors seem to forget, we students take four or five courses, not just yours! Professor: Well, there is a lot of flexibility here. Some classes just do all systems programming, because it is so practical. Some classes do all xv6 hacking, because it really gets you to see how operating systems work. And some, as you may have guessed, do a mix, starting with some systems programming, and then doing xv6 at the end. It’s really up to the professor of a particular class.

CPU MULTIPROCESSOR SCHEDULING (ADVANCED

CPU MULTIPROCESSOR SCHEDULING (ADVANCED

This chapter will introduce the basics of multiprocessor scheduling. As this topic is relatively advanced, it may be best to cover it after you have studied the topic of concurrency in some detail (i.e., the second major “easy piece” of the book). After years of existence only in the highend of the computing spectrum, multiprocessor systems are increasingly commonplace, and have found their way into desktop machines, laptops, and even mobile devices. The rise of the multicore processor, in which multiple CPU cores are packed onto a single chip, is the source of this proliferation; these chips have become popular as computer architects have had a difficult time making a single CPU much faster without using (way) too much power. And thus we all now have a few CPUs available to us, which is a good thing, right? Ofcourse, therearemanydifficultiesthatarisewiththearrivalofmore thanasingleCPU.Aprimaryoneisthatatypicalapplication(i.e., someC program you wrote) only uses a single CPU; adding more CPUs does not make that single application run faster. To remedy this problem, you’ll have to rewrite your application to run in parallel, perhaps using threads (as discussed in great detail in the second piece of this book). Multithreaded applications can spread work across multiple CPUs and thus run faster when given more CPU resources. Beyond applications, a new problem that arises for the operating system is (not surprisingly) that of multiprocessor scheduling. Thus far we’ve discussed a number of principles behind singleprocessor scheduling; how can we extend those ideas to work on multiple CPUs? What new problems must we overcome? And thus, our problem: CRUX: HOW TO SCHEDULE JOBS ON MULTIPLE CPUS How should the OS schedule jobs on multiple CPUs? What new problems arise? Do the same old techniques work, or are new ideas required? 10.1 Background: Multiprocessor Architecture To understand the new issues surrounding multiprocessor scheduling, we have to understand a new and fundamental difference between singleCPU hardware and multiCPU hardware. This difference centers around the use of hardware caches (e.g., Figure 10.1), and exactly how data is shared across multiple processors. We now discuss this issue further, at a high level. Details are available elsewhere CSG99, in particular in an upperlevel or perhaps graduate computer architecture course. In a system with a single CPU, there are a hierarchy of hardware caches that in general help the processor run programs faster. Caches are small, fast memories that (in general) hold copies of popular data that is found in the main memory of the system. Main memory, in contrast, holds all of the data, but access to this larger memory is slower. By keeping frequently accessed data in a cache, the system can make the large, slow memory appear to be a fast one. As an example, consider a program that issues an explicit load instruction to fetch a value from memory, and a simple system with only a single CPU; the CPU has a small cache (say 64 KB) and a large main memory.

IELTS WRITING TASK 1 ( IELTS BUDDY )

Here is an example for the above line graph:The line graph illustrates the amount of fast food consumed by teenagers inAustralia between 1975 and 2000, a period of 25 years.You can see this says the same thing as the title, but in a different way.2) Give an OverviewYou also need to state what the main trend or trends in the graph are. Don’t givedetail such as data here – you are just looking for something that describes what ishappening overall.One thing that stands out in this graph is that one type of fast food fell over theperiod, whilst the other two increased, so this would be a good overview.Here is an example:Overall, the consumption of fish and chips declined over the period,whereas the amount of pizza and hamburgers that were eaten increased.This covers the main changes that took place over the whole period.You may sometimes see this overview as a conclusion. It does not matter if you putit in the conclusion or the introduction when you do an IELTS writing task 1, but youshould provide an overview in one of these places.3) Give the DetailYou can now give more specific detail in the body paragraphs.When you give the detail in your body paragraphs in your IELTS writing task 1, youmust make reference to the data.The key to organizing your body paragraphs for an IELTS writing task 1 is to groupdata together where there are patterns.To do this you need to identify any similarities and differences.Look at the graph – what things are similar and what things are different?As we have already identified in the overview, the consumption of fish and chips

writing 8 Benefits of Reading (or Ways Reading Makes You Better at Life) 27 Comments Last updated: December 17, 2014 Photo by celeste The public library is a phenomena that to this day I still can’t get over. Free knowledge, for anyone. Literally, anyone. I can’t think of an equivalent other than going to a clothing store, “checking out” an outfit, wearing the outfit and returning it in four weeks, free of charge. Except books are so much better than clothes. Recently I’ve been on a huge reading kick, checking out anything I can get my hands on in the library. (I’m writing a guest post on ZenHabits to detail some of the best stuff I’ve found, so more on that later.) I’ve found that no matter what I read, the act of reading every day has helped me in nearly every aspect of my life. Here are a few of my favorite ways that reading has improved my quality of life, and will definitely improve yours. 1. Enhanced Smarts Wow, this may be the most obvious statement of the post, right? Well, it turns out that reading helps in almost every area of smarts. Those that read have higher GPA’s, higher intelligence, and general knowledge than those that don’t. In Anne E. Cunningham’s paper What Reading Does for the Mind (pdf version), she found that reading, in general, makes you smarter, and it keeps you sharp as you age. No matter what you’re wanting to do or become, you can’t do it without more knowledge. Reading is an excellent way to get where you’re wanting to go. 2. Reading reduces stress When I’m reading a book, my mind shifts gears. Where I might have a had a stressful day, a book can easily distract me. Fiction is fantastic for this. Reading an awesome fiction book is perfect right before bed time. Though sometimes it’s hard to put the book down if it’s really good. Still, you’ll be relaxed ;)

WHAT SUBJECT WILL YOU STUDY GIVING A CHANCE

WHAT SUBJECT WILL YOU STUDY GIVING A CHANCE

What subject will you study giving a chance?If I could have the opportunity to choose another subject, I wouldlike to study children education.For one thing, the psychology of children is different from that ofthe adult. As a mother of six-year-old daughter, I become curiousabout the world of the children. For example, we have been taughtfrom a very early age that we must be truthful. But I discover thatmany children often tell lies now and then. When my daughter didit, I criticized her seriously. However, after I have read some booksabout children, I find that some untruthful behaviors of children arejust the results that they sometimes confuse thethings that are in their imagination with the things that aretrue. It is not that they deliberately treat adults.For another, I want give my daughter and other children a happychildhood and make them succeed. Every child is different, it can besaid that every child is an intelligent. The key problem is how tofind out his advantages and develop it. Some children are good atpicture thinking, while others are good at logic thinking. Somechildren are good at language, while others are good at mathematics.If I understand their psychology and their behavior. I would be agood teacher who could utilize their advantages, increase their selfconfidence and lead them to succeed.In conclusion, I want to study children education not only because Iam interested in it but also because I want help children to have ahappy childhood and become successful people.

WHAT ARE THE QUALITIES OF A GOOD NEIGHBOR

WHAT ARE THE QUALITIES OF A GOOD NEIGHBOR

What are the qualities of a good neighbor?I believe that in every community very special relationships occurbetween neighbors. After our family and friends, neighbors are theclosest people we have around us. In my opinion, the qualities of agood neighbor are helpfulness, tactfulness and lack of unsoundcuriosity.To begin with, many people expect their neighbors to be helpful orto do them a favor when they are in trouble. In my opinion, a goodneighbor would not refuse to keep an eye on our house or apartmentwhen we are away. What is more, good neighbors would never leaveus outside in the rain if we have lost our home keys. In addition, theywould always suggest using their phone if ours is disconnected. Orthey would never refuse to lend us some sugar for our morningcoffee.Apart from latter mentioned, I consider that tactfulness is a qualityas important as helpfulness is. I would expect that my goodneighbor would not tell every one what the color of my dressinggown is. Neither he nor she would call the police because of loudmusic on my birthday party, for example.Finally many people believe their neighbors display a lot of unsoundcuriosity. What does it mean? These people feel that their neighborstry to spy on every step they make. To be watched twenty-four hoursa day is not only uncomfortable but also very irritating.Sometimes many misunderstandings occur between neighbors. As amatter of fact, to have a good neighbor around you could be a realbless. And if we are polite, helpful and if we show required respect toour neighbors, I believe that sooner or later they would treat us in thesame way.

INTERLUDE: FILE AND DIRECTORIES

INTERLUDE: FILE AND DIRECTORIES

Thus far we have seen the development of two key operating system abstractions: the process, which is a virtualization of the CPU, and the address space, which is a virtualization of memory. In tandem, these two abstractions allow a program to run as if it is in its own private, isolated world; as if it has its own processor (or processors); as if it has its own memory. This illusion makes programming the system much easier and thus is prevalent today not only on desktops and servers but increasingly on all programmable platforms including mobile phones and the like. Inthissection, weaddonemorecriticalpiecetothevirtualizationpuzzle: persistent storage. A persistentstorage device, such as a classic hard disk drive or a more modern solidstate storage device, stores information permanently (or at least, for a long time). Unlike memory, whose contents are lost when there is a power loss, a persistentstorage device keeps such data intact. Thus, the OS must take extra care with such a device: this is where users keep data that they really care about. CRUX: HOW TO MANAGE A PERSISTENT DEVICE How should the OS manage a persistent device? What are the APIs? What are the important aspects of the implementation? Thus, in the next few chapters, we will explore critical techniques for managing persistent data, focusing on methods to improve performance and reliability. We begin, however, with an overview of the API: the interfaces you’ll expect to see when interacting with a UNIX file system. 39.1 Files and Directories Two key abstractions have developed over time in the virtualization of storage. The first is the file. A file is simply a linear array of bytes, each of which you can read or write. Each file has some kind of lowlevel 1 2 INTERLUDE: FILE AND DIRECTORIES name, usually a number of some kind; often, the user is not aware of this name (as we will see). For historical reasons, the lowlevel name of a file is often referred to as its inode number. We’ll be learning a lot more about inodes in future chapters; for now, just assume that each file has an inode number associated with it. In most systems, the OS does not know much about the structure of the file (e.g., whether it is a picture, or a text file, or C code); rather, the responsibility of the file system is simply to store such data persistently on disk and make sure that when you request the data again, you get what you put there in the first place. Doing so is not as simple as it seems The second abstraction is that of a directory. A directory, like a file, also has a lowlevel name (i.e., an inode number), but its contents are quite specific: it contains a list of (userreadable name, lowlevel name) pairs. For example, let’s say there is a file with the lowlevel name “10”, and it is referred to by the userreadable name of “foo”. The directory “foo” resides in thus would have an entry (“foo”, “10”) that maps the userreadablenametothelowlevelname. Eachentryinadirectoryrefers to either files or other directories. By placing directories within other directories, users are able to build an arbitrary directory tree (or directory hierarchy), under which all files and directories are stored.
