Should University Campuses Be Used as Public Parking Lots?
In pace with the rapid growth of the economy, the amount of private cars is increasingly rising. Meanwhile, the problems of parking are also becoming more and more severe. Recently, some universities have opened their campuses as public parking lots, which has caused a heated discussion among people.
Should university campuses be used as public parking lots? Different people hold different ideas. Some argue that using university campuses as public parking lots is beneficial to improving the current parking condition by sharing resources. Yet 【yet改成Meanwhile】 others maintain that too many cars parked into the campus will break the peace of the academic environment.
As for me, I disagree with using university campuses as public parking lots. On the one hand, private cars release too much exhaust gas that exerts negative effects on the air condition and do harm to students’health. On the other hand, with too many vehicles, it is more difficult for campuses to stay 【stay改为keep】 well-ordered and safe. For instance, private cars pose a potential threat to pedestrians and cyclists on campus if drivers are careless. Therefore, to avoid trouble and danger, I strongly hold that university campuses should not be used as public parking lots.
In our country, currently, some higher education institutions begin to open their campuses as public parking lots in order to add to their balance sheet, which has become a heated debate among people from all walks of our society【of our society改为of life】.
On one hand, some people tend to harbor 【hold】 the idea that it is a reasonable way to share resources, for those universities are also financially supported by taxpayers among whom some may have a hard time finding parking places in this time and age. 【among whom后面有点表达有错误，whom在从句里不是做宾语是做的主语，要用who.建议改成：among who may have a problem of finding parking lots】 On the other hand, some others argue that doing this 【doing this有点指向不明哦，建议改成：Too many cars park in campus】 may inevitably disturb and disrupt the normal orders on 【of】 campuses and do harm to the quality of our education.
To sum up, I am highly convinced that the authorities should shoulder their due responsibilities to scientifically and holistically meet the needs of both sides, such as designating a special area as the parking area and strictly checking up the drivers who need to park there. (158words)

On Dialectal TV Programs
Nowadays, people are more easily exposed to the TV programs and shows in dialects compared to in the past when the audience only had a limited range of choices to pick. Many reasons contribute to this phenomenon, among which it includes the technology advancement, catering to the need of different ethnic groups and the protection of local cultures.
For one thing, some advocates believe that at this moment, a variety of local cultures are facing the danger of extinction, so this could be a suitable way to improve 【improve改为arise】 people's awareness of preserving the intangible cultural heritage like our vernaculars. Nevertheless, for another thing, those who oppose it hold the argument that this might affect the promotion of mandarin whose purpose is to fill the gap caused by the usage of different local languages.
In conclusion, it is more advisable, in my opinion, to strike a balance between these two sides. The relevant departments should make more efforts to prevent those cultural treasures from expiring 【expiring改为extinction】. At the same time, there should be more guides from parents and teachers to prepare our next generation for a better understanding of subcultures.
