It's my first time~~ thank you all.

 

And finally the Dumbest Generation, and if you are watching this web cast, that apparently it means you. At least, that's a theory of a professor of English, Amery University, who's written a book, which basically *using that internet is making people stupid. "I'm Art Barroline, professor of English, at Amery University. The book has a provocative title. It's the dumbest generation. How the digital age stupefies young Americans and jeopardizes all their future. Recent years, though I had begun to look at youth culture, youth knowledge, youth academic achievements and what have come up. One more, is the things don't look good. Young people today are enjoying more and more digital connections, more screen time than ever before. And one of the effects of that is that they are steadily disengaging from the traditional contents of the liberal arts. One of the things we measured was how much people read literature and how much they read books in general. And the first time we did this study was in 1982. At that time, young people form the most active reading group. When we did it again in 2002, they were the least active, only about half of them ever read a book on their own. It's not assigns from school. It's not assigns in the work place. They simply don't care. The Internet is extraordinary. It is miraculous tool for knowledge and information. But the fact is, that is not what the Internet means to the average sixteen-year-old. What the Internet does is to provide a more intense firm contact with other sixteen-year-olds. You know, I do often tell my students: read more books, please read more books in your leisure time, unplugged for just an hour or two per day. I,er, I urged them and they, they * just laughed at me. some of them made me feel that I come down with them too hard, but they know deep down that this is right."
