Compare the new welfare system with the old one and you would find a world of

difference between

the two. Under the new welfare system, the law encourages welfare clients to work on

their own for a

gradual shift away from welfare, and this is not the case in the past. Welfare clients now

can develop

their talents to make money. In the past, they often cheated to bleed the system for a few

extra dollars.

Now caseworkers will gladly help their clients find appropriate jobs rather than act like

detectives to

try to seek out any unreported properties. Today many welfare clients have made a

choice to live a life

of complete honesty and they tell the truth to caseworkers and declare any extra income

they make.

In cases like this, caseworkers will feel greatly relieved because they don’t need to

search for any

cheating as in the past.

Typically there are two kinds of people who choose to live alone on purpose. The first

group of people

is artists. They believe in the inspiration in solitude. One of my friends is a writer. He

enjoys the time

when he is alone because he can stay up late to read and, above all, concentrate on his

writing without

fear of being interrupted by others. On his wall he posts a quotation from Thoreau: “I

never found

the companion that was so companionable as solitude.” The second group consists of

people who

are disappointed with their marriage or family life. A woman I know has been living

alone since her

husband left her five years ago. She is not waiting for his return but she is just

disappointed with life.

Small in size and light in weight, electronic dictionaries are convenient to use.They are easy to carry and
students can take them anywhere they go. Whenever they come across a new word in reading, they can
find out its meaning with the help of an electronic dictionary. An electronic dictionary usually contains
the information of several paper dictionaries.When students have one such dictionary, they actually
have more than one dictionary in hand.Meanwhile,electronic dictionaries are time-saving. They save
students from turning pages over to find the word.Instead, they only need to key in the word and the
meaning will appear on the screen. Considering all the above factors,no wonder more and more students
are using electronic dictionaries nowadays.
