TOPIC: Nowadays, pollution and waste levels are increasing rapidly. How does this affect ordinary people? What steps can be taken to overcome this problem?   Show submitted essay
Revised by tutor:
In this modern era, environmental issues are the major problem that everyone faces. The rate of pollution and waste level is augmenting day by day. As a result, this can bring many health issues to ordinary people. In my opinion, there are many ways to tackle these issues by avoid plastics, awareness programs, and promote electric cars.

One of the primary causes of many health problems in ordinary people is the polluted environment. For instance, air pollution plays a significant role in bringing health problems such as asthma and other respiratory issues. It will be the same effect as smoking a pack of tobacco every day. A recent article in the New York Times says that some parts in India and China do not have clean air to breathe and a rapid increase in health problems in people. Although many people know about the environmental effects in everyone's life, others keep doing the activities that are damaging our nature. Because of the wastes that are piling up in our area, new diseases are evolving, and that could lead to many pandemic situations.

So, governments should promote recycling products rather than using plastics. Banning plastics can make an astonishing decrease in terms of waste. In addition to this, they should also bring some awareness programs to the citizens to make them understand that environmental damages are irreversible. For example, species that are extinct due to natural problems. Even though we have many state of art technologies for various thing, there are no advancements that could bring down the environmental issues. Many countries like Sweden and Finland completely got rid of the use of plastics, so that less waste burden. Moreover, they also promote the use of electric cars rather than using cars that run by fuel. As a result, it helps to prevent problems.

To sum up, clean air and the environment is necessary for everyone to be healthy. In addition, avoiding the use of plastics and burning fuel can make a significant improvement in nature. If people had followed these methods a long time ago, there would not be too much nature issues.

TOPIC: Some people think that new technology always improves the lives of workers. Other people believe that it results in disadvantages for workers. Discuss both the views and give your opinion.   Show submitted essay
Revised by tutor:
It is indeed true that modern technology has equipped masses with machines. There are positive and negative effects of these machines on workers of any organisation. Some people are divided on the issue that this technological advancement results in disadvantageous for them. However, others oppine that it improves their daily work life. This essay will intend to analyze both perspectives.

To begin with, undoubtedly, machines are faster, more convenient, and energy saving. Numerous industries are much more facilitated with it because these machines reduce the human resources for work and increase output as well. Moreover, technology devices make it possible nowadays to do jobs done within minutes, which humans did in hours. For example, printers, computers, cutters, and many more. Therefore, it makes it easier for the workforce and lessens their burden.

In contrast, this is also a fact that the introduction of technology declines the need for manual work, which can lead to unemployment, especially in developing countries. In addition, insufficient knowledge of machine handling and operating is detrimental to uneducated workers, and they can get either injured or disabled while working with machines.

Besides, technical failure may disturb the whole working system and lead to business loss. At that moment, employees are unable to do it manually, or sometimes not enough workforce is available. What is more, machines are not able to do creative work, where required. For instance, the original and unique work done by many artists can never be replaced by any equipment.

In conclusion, negative effects of machines outweigh the positive on the workers. Nonetheless, in order to meet the employment needs of the population, a balance has to be maintained between manual work and mechanization.

TOPIC: Advantages Disadvantages: In some countries, young people are encouraged to work or travel for a year between finishing high school and starting university studies.   Show submitted essay
Revised by tutor:
In certain nations, youngsters are motivated to take a gap of one year either to do work or travel after completion of secondary studies and before entering in tertiary studies. In the following paragraphs, I will explain the merits and demerits of taking a one year break before pursuing college.

To embark on, working, or traveling before tertiary studies has plenty of positive sides. Firstly, doing a job before studies provides prior experience and helps in differentiating whether the field is right for him or not. Moreover, it develops a sense of responsibility. Secondly, he also learns how to maintain his finances, consequently knows about the value of money. On the other side, traveling between studies provides an opportunity to know about different people, their profession, achievements, ultimately gives a perspective to realize the purpose of life. Despite this, it provides a break from the regular routine, relaxes the person, and energizes the person.

However, it has some drawbacks. Students feel that life without study is more relaxing and happier than in institutions. Even some students waste their whole time in entertainment, fun, and games. Moreover, one year break is very long, so some persons indulge in bad habits by choosing a bad company to spend time. In addition, those who started working sometimes feel more comfortable in earning and fulfilling their needs and think of pursuing a job in the future and left the studies.

To conclude, students, after higher studies are stimulated to take a break of one year while entering university, has both pros and cons. However, limitations can be reduced by proper utilizing the time period and knowing the indispensable facts related to the course a student want to choose in university.
