Oral Work Debating: Perhaps we should ask ourselves whether we are always asking the right questions. This is a common problem. Many questions are complicated and require careful analysis. We cannot easily give true-or-false or yes-or-no answers. In fact, often the questions are wrong in the first place. Please debate whether these questions are right: When can we give every Chinese a car? How can we make machines work for us so that we do not have to work at all? The end of Debating.

Writing • steps for boosting creativity: • 1) Listen to music by Johann Sebastian Bach. If Bach doesn't make you more creative, you should probably see your doctor — or your brain surgeon if you are also troubled by headaches, hallucinations or strange urges in the middle of the night. • 2) Brainstorm. If properly carried out, brainstorming can help you not only come up with sacks full of new ideas, but can help you decide which is best. • 3) Always carry a small notebook and a pen or pencil around with you. That way, if you are struck by an idea, you can quickly note it down. Upon rereading your notes, you may discover about 90% of your ideas are daft. Don't worry, that's normal. What's important are the 10% that are brilliant. To be continued on the next page.
Writing 4) If you're stuck for an idea, open a dictionary, randomly select a word and then try to formulate ideas incorporating this word. You'd be surprised how well this works. The concept is based on a simple but little known truth: Freedom inhibits creativity. There are nothing like restrictions to get you thinking. 5) Define your problem. Grab a sheet of paper, electronic notebook, computer or whatever you use to make notes, and define your problem in detail. You'll probably find ideas positively spewing out once you've done this. 6) If you can't think, go for a walk. A change of atmosphere is good for you and gentle exercise helps shake up the brain cells. To be continued on the next page.
Writing 7) Don't watch TV. Experiments performed by the JPB Creative Laboratory show that watching TV causes your brain to slowly trickle out your ears and/or nose. It's not pretty, but it happens. 8) Don't do drugs. People on drugs think they are creative. To everyone else, they seem like people on drugs. 9) Read as much as you can about everything possible. Books exercise your brain, provide inspiration and fill you with information that allows you to make creative connections easily. 10)Exercise your brain. Brains, like bodies, need exercise to keep fit. If you don't exercise your brain, it will get flabby and useless. To be continued on the next page.
