Nationwide Shortage of Power Supply
According to experts, China is facing a more severe power shortage at present than it did in the second half of the year 2006. In fact, a good number of provincial areas have already imposed power brownouts in the past few months.
There is no doubt that accelerating development of power-intensive industrial sectors, the growing pace of urbanization and low energy efficiency should be blamed for the extensive shortage of power supply. Besides, the situation is worsened by slow power construction and inadequate overall power generation.
In order to ease the current power shortage, a package of measures should be introduced as soon as possible. Firstly, a nationwide campaign should be launched to educate the public about methods to improve efficiency of energy consumption. Secondly, great efforts should be made to curb wasteful duplications and cut irrational demand in some industries. Thirdly, construction of energy and transport projects should be accelerated to expand power supply. Lastly, it is necessary to optimize energy structure and establish a diversified energy consumption pattern. Only in this way can China’s power shortage ease and finally disappear in the near future.

Media and Shopping
With numerous technological advances, various kinds of media have been well developed. As a result, an increasing number of people are fond of purchasing goods with the help of media, such as newspapers, radio stations, TV stations and the Internet.
As we know, every coin has two sides and shopping via media is no exception. On the one hand, it saves much time, money and effort to purchase goods through media since you don’t have to go to the shops in person. Besides, you can choose what you want from an enormous variety of goods on display. On the other hand, you may be cheated sometimes by the false information and suffer a considerable loss.
As far as I am concerned, shopping via media brings great benefits to our life and our economy on the whole. At the same time, we need strengthened supervision over the information released via media. In this way, we can reap more benefits from shopping via media and reduce the possible harm to a minimum.
