The role of ceremony in our lives

 

1.E:How important are ceremonies in our lives?

 

C: Well, according to my knowledge of them, ceremonies have had great significance in our lives in a way that they help unite people, creating opportunities for them communicate and exchange their thoughts and feelings. Communication is socially important considering the fact that it promotes harmony and stability of a socie-ty. And ceremonies always provide people with chances to achieve them for good reasons. They are indispensable for the healthy development of a country.

 

2.E: Do you see the role of private and public ceremonies changing in the future?

 

C: Yes, it for sure will. The popularity of private ceremonies will rise in the next few years due to the ever more intense lifestyle of modern people and their growing needs to get together for a good maintenance of their relationships . Similarly , people are beginning to realise the importance of public ceremonies and the benefits they're endowed . I hold the prediction that they will also become more welcomed in the fu ture .

 

Attitudes to marriage in your country

 

3.E:Have attitudes to marriage changed in recent years?

 

C: I guess I can take yes for an answer. Attitudes to marriage have changed quite a deal in the past few years. It used to be treated as a privilege held in possession by one's parents. One must be arranged to marry someone appointed by his /her parents without any resentment, which was indeed the cause of many failed relationships and family tragedies. People used to hold the idea that marriage was for good and the extension of family descent was the priority of it. Divorce was rarely seen and remarriage of women was even treated disgraceful. Now, to say a milestone has been achieved in the change of it is hardly an overstatement. People now handle it with more liberty. They encourage the view that marriage is for love and love should be prior to all things. A break-up in a marital relation is no more regarded as a shameful thing.

 

4. E: In what ways do men and woman feel differently about marriage, in your opinion?

 

C: You know, that's really a tough question for me since I'm still short of personal experiences in this field. However, I honestly think that this question is better explained by specific examples rather than by general discussion. But if I were to talk about it from the standpoint of the common attitudes men and women have for it respectively, I would conclude roughly as follows: men usually believe that marriage means more responsibilities than romance , whereas women take into account more sensitive feelings they think essential to the foundation of a good marriage. That might result from the different roles they play in the society. Have I made myself clear this way ?

 

Events of national/global significance

 

5.E:What sort of national events make headlines in your country?

 

C: Well, there're national events with various contents that could hit the headlines in newspapers in my country. To my experience, I see political actions always make themselves top news, for the reason that they concern the development of our nation as well as every single citizen's life. Nationwide events ranging from new findings through scientific researches, economic progress in regions of China, to sport championships and entertainments could all be headline issues at times. Others included may be explosive news like natural catastrophes, significant reform of famous or ganizations, and hideous crimes and destructions.

 

6. E: Does the media in your country pay more attention to global or national events?

 

C: Having a closer association with the lives of the citizens, national news has had the media of our country reveal more concern to it. By broadcasting all sorts of issues happening in our country on a daily basis, it attaches great significance to the interests of every individual person, for which matter it has naturally become the focus of attention of the domestic media. National news constitutes approximately 80 per cent of the entire series of news broadcast, leaving the rest to be occupied by global news. Seizing less time share though, the report of international news has its importance that could not be minimised. As is known to us all, one of the most important functions of news is to let us keep track with what's happening in the entire world to better understand ourselves as part of the globe and know what our strengths and weaknesses are. The world is interdependent internally and it is the responsibility of the media to let us be clear about it and know what actions should be taken accordingly to promote the life quality of the entire human race.

仪式在我们生活中的作用

 

1.E:仪式在我们的生活中有多重要?

 

C:根据我的理解,仪式在我们的生活中有很重要的意义,他们使人们能够聚集到一起,为他们创造彼此交流和交换思想和情感的空间。交流对于一个社会很重要,它,促进社会的和谐和稳定。而仪式总是能够以好的理由让人们实现这一切。它们对于一个国家的健康发展是必不可少的。

 

2.E:你认为在未来私人和公共仪式的重要性会改变吗?

 

C:是的,肯定会的。私人仪式在未来几年中会更受人们的欢迎。因为现代人紧张的生活方式使得他们更需要聚在一起去保持他们的关系。同样,人们也开始意识到公共仪式的重要性和他们从中获得的益处。我猜想他们在未来也会更受到人们的欢迎的。

 

你们国家人们对婚姻的态度

 

3.E:在最近几年中,人们对婚姻的态度改变了吗?

 

C:我想是的。在过去几年中,人们对于婚姻的态度的确改变了不少。它以前被认为是父母手中的特权。一个人要毫无怨言的和他/她的父母选中的那个人结婚,这是很多失败的婚姻和家庭悲剧的起因。过去人们认为婚姻是一生一世的选择,而且维持家族的延续是它的首要任务。离婚是很少见的事情,妇女的改嫁被认为是有失颜面的事情。而现在,可以毫不夸张地说婚姻发生了里程碑式的改变。人们现在有了更多的自由。人们鼓励为爱而婚,爱情至上的观点,婚姻关系的破裂也不再被认为是一件丢脸的事情。

 

4.E:在你看来,男人和女人对于婚姻的感受有什么不同?

 

C:这个问题对我来说可不太好回答,因为在这方面我没有什么经验。我真的认为这个问题用具体的例子来解释更好,而不是泛泛的谈论。但如果我要站在男女的公共态度的立场去谈这个问题,我可以大概总结成下面的几点:男人通常认为婚姻更多的是责任,而浪漫是第二位的。而女人把很多敏感的感情考虑进来,认为它们对于幸福的婚姻至关重要。这也许是由于他们在社会中的不同角色造成的。我不知道这样有没有解释清楚?

全国/全球重大事件

 

5.E:在你们国家会把什么样的全国性事件作为报道的头条新闻?

 

C:有很多种不同的全国性事件都可以登上报纸的头条。根据我的经验,国家的政策举动总会成为头条新闻,因为它们关系到国家的发展和每个公民的生活。像从科学新发现、中国局部经济进步,到体育锦标赛和娱乐都有可能成为头条新闻。其他一些爆炸性新闻像自然灾害、知名组织的重大变革和骇人听闻的犯罪和破坏性事件也列在其中。

 

6.E:你们国家的媒体会更加关注国际还是国内新闻?

 

C:国内新闻因为与公民的生活联系更为紧密而受到媒体更多的关注。它播报每天发生在国内的各种事件,对每个人的利益来说有很大的重要性,因此也就自然地成为了国内媒体的焦点。国内新闻大约占整个新闻联播的80%,其余的部分是国际新闻。虽然国际新闻的时间分配较少,但它的重要性不能被轻视。众所周知,新闻的重要功能之一就是让我们跟踪世界上发生的事情,以便更好地了解我们在国际中的位置以及我们的优势和弱点。世界的内部是相互依存的。媒体有责任让我们意识到这一点并且让我们清楚应该做些什么来提高整个人类的生活质量。
