Question: Summarise the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they cast doubt on specific points made in the reading passage.
    The passage asserts that the Sinosauropteryx fossil found in China have fine lines surrounding can\\\'t be the evidence that this kind of dinosaur had feathers. However, the speaker totally refutes the idea, by stating that the critics are not correct, the fine line strongly shows that this dinosaur had feathers. She mentions three points.
    Firstly, the speaker says that the fine lines can not be the decomposed skin since we didn\\\'t find others well-preserved dinosaur fossils in the same site had the same fine lines as this one. Moreover, others fossils be found also shows the trace of the complete functional structures which make it possiable to consider that the fine lines are also well-preserved structures such as feathers. This position is the opposite of the reading passage that the lines are the trail of the skin but not feathers.
    Secondly, in the lecture, the speaker argues that the chemical element in the feathers and frills are totally different, we can prove by detecting the chemical component that they are not frills remained. This completely contradicts the idea in the passage that the lines may be the remains of the real structures.
    Finally, the speaker does not agree with the opinion that the feathers are only for flying and keeping warmth, so that it is unserviceable for this dinosaur to have feathers only on the backbone and tail where the fine lines were found. She points out feathers can also be used for display function like peacocks\\\' tails nowadays. In addition, the detection shows the structures of the fine lines are colorful, which support the idea that they are feathers existed for displaying. Therefore, to treat the feathers found on the backbone and tail as useless does not make sense.



Question:
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Because the world is changing so quickly, people now are less happy or less satisfied with their lives than people were in the past.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
    Those who consider convenience and novelty the yardstick of the living standard might say that the lives we live today are better now than in the past since our world are changing every single days. However, I think, when it comes to easiness and comfort, the life of the past is more happy and strisfied than the modern people\\\'s life.
    Firstly, as far as the pressure people face today, it is less desirable to live the life nowadays. These days, many people are stressed out due to the heavy burden of having to study and work hard and competition among peers in this rapidly changing society. Being successful is everyone\\\'s life goal, but compared to the past, the standard of success is refreshed constantly, not only we have to take full effort to win, but only we have lots of anxieties to catch up with others and not to be chased. We have to run faster and faster, struggling to stay in our tracks in this moden world changes from day to day, otherwise we may fall behind and turn into a loser. Life is not easy now.
    Moreover, human relationship is getting more complex. As you may know, the stories in the books and movies in the past, people can be simply divided in two groups, bad people and good ones. As the time goes by, however, friends can become enemies, and enemies can become one of our co-workers. We have ever intricate relationships with a number of people. In addition, while people were responsiable only for themselves or their family in the past time, many people today have to take more responsibilities like as a member of communities, a manager who have subordinates or a president of a club.
    Finally, the current social structrue makes our present life more different to live. Most of us did farming in the past, the only thing we had to do was to reap what we sow, and that was it. However, as jobs are getting more specialized now, it is not when we become grownups, but when we are children that we have to set our goals and be educated according to them. An indian movie named Hindi Medium recently exposed the phenonmenon, many parents want their kids have top education resources even from the time they are pregnant! We get a ever-longer lasting education just to fit in our ever-faster changing social structrue.
    In conclusion, I agree with the statement that life is harder and less contentment compared to the past due to the high speed changes of our society.
