    Everyone smiles in the same language. But not everyone smiles in the same medium, and that might be hurting us.

    That’s according to a new study from researches at the University of Haifa and Ben-Gurion University, both in Israel, and the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Inadvertently timed to the recent release of “The Emoji Movie,” scientists decided to study whether using smile emojis in text messages between work colleagues caused the same warm feelings as a face-to-face interaction that includes a smile.

    The results? For the first time, science was able to confirm that a smile emoji does not conjure those same feelings. Quite the opposite, in face: using a smile emoji in conversation actually decreases perception of the colleague’s competence and inserts a level of distance into the relationship.

    It’s a phenomenon study leader Arik Cheshin dubbed “virtual first-impression management.” He and his colleagues, including co-leader Ella Glikson, conducted several experiments analyzing the reactions to text messages that included smile emojis versus messages that don’t. They also measured these same interactions in social settings and found that the emojis actually improved perception.

    “I believe there is a greater gap in what the sender is hoping to convey and what the receiver interprets,” Cheshin, a professor, said, “This intention-interpretation gap can be damaging.”

    In addition, Cheshin and colleagues found that the effects of smiley use on social perceptions occur regardless of the expresser’s perceived gender.

    So what’s the takeaway here “I don’t think that emoticons and emojis replace actual emotion.” Cheshin told us. “They are just different. The emotions are there and will always be when there are humans involved.”

    Before picking an emoji that fits your mood at the moment, it’s better to just use words at least when you’re at work. Or, better yet, just show up and talk face-to-face. You know, like the good old days.

What is found in the study by Arik?

AWork colleagues use smile emojis more

BA smile emoji leads to warm feelings

CSmile emojis keep colleagues at a distance

DSmiley use works better than face-to-face interaction

    Reyna Gordon was an aspiring opera singer fresh out of college when she began considering the questions that would eventually define her career.

    “I moved to Italy when I finished my bachelor of music, and I started to take more linguistic classes and to think about language in the brain, and music in the brain,” she says. “What was happening in our brains when we were listening to music, when we were singing? What was happening in my brain when I was singing?”

    Today, Gordon studies how rhythm and music training might help children with atypical language development.

    “One thing that rhythm and grammar have in common is that they both unfold over time, and our brains form expectancies about what’s coming up based on what we just heard,” says Gordon.

    Consider the following sentence: The boy read the book that his mother gave to him. “When we hear ‘The boy read,’ then we’re expecting an object after that,” Gordon says. “Then when we hear ’The boy read the book? that we’re expecting an additional clause-something else about the book.’”

    By age 5, Gordon says children typically understand and use complex sentences. But studies have shown that about 7 percent of children have what’s known as developmental language disorder, which prevents their language skills even though they have IQs in the normal range and don’t have autism or hearing impairment. Gordon says. “So expressing complex ideas, especially as they start to go through school, is difficult.”

    Gordon studies children with and without language impairment in a training program called MILEStone, which involves weekly Suzuki violin lessons and a weekly movement class.

    “There may be something that music training can do to help boost things. Maybe we’re able to boost their auditory processing skills in the brain, or something about their rhythm sensitivity in their everyday listening to language,” Gordon says. “We don’t know yet, so we actually have a whole series of questions to look at.”

What did the questions that Reyna considered reflect?

AHer trouble as an opera singer

BHer interest in music classes

CHer puzzlement at the role of brain

DHer curiosity about language and music

    Machines might one day replace human laborers in a number of professions, but surely they won’t ever replace human artists. Right?

    Think again. Not even our artists will be safe from the inevitable machine takeover, if a new development in artificial intelligence by a team of researchers from Rutgers University and Facebook's A.I. lab offers a clue of what's to come. They have designed an A.I. capable of not only producing art, but actually inventing whole new aesthetic styles similar to movements like impressionism or abstract expressionism, reports. The idea, according to researcher Marian Mazzone, was to make art that is "novel, but not too novel."

    The model used in this project involved a generator network, which produces the images, and a discriminator network, which "judges" whether it's art. Once the generator learns how to produce work that the distributor recognizes as art, it's given an additional directive: to produce art that doesn't match any known aesthetic styles.

    "You want to have something really creative and striking-but at the same time not go too far and make something that isn't aesthetically(美学地) pleasing," explained Ahmed Elgammal.

    The art that was generated by the system was then presented to human judges alongside human-produced art without showing which was which. To the researchers' surprise, the machine-made art scored slightly higher overall than the human-produced art.

    Of course, machines can't yet replace the meaning that's infused in works by human artists, but this project shows that artist skill sets certainly seem duplicatable by machines.

    What will it take for machines to produce content that's infused with meaning? That might be the last A.I. frontier. Human artists can at least hang their hats in that field...for now.

    "Imagine having people over for a dinner party and they ask, ‘Who is that by?’ And you say, ‘Well, it's a machine actually’. That would be an interesting conversation starter," said Kevin Walker.

What is implied in the first paragraph?

AArtists won't be replaced by AI

BAI can produce new styles of art

CAI is totally at a loss about impressionism

DAI fails to reflect abstract expressionism

    We all need some kind of motivation to eat healthy. Only exercising is not quite enough to stay in shape and live your life as a healthy person free from extra problems.  36  So try these tips for staying motivated to eat healthy wherever you go.

Discover new foods

    Adopting a new eating habit is finding different foods to try. Explore a specialty foods store, get a new cookbook at the library, or explore new cultural restaurants.  37  .

Track your weight loss

    By cutting out fatty and eating high-fiber vegetarian healthy foods, you will forget about high-calorie foods such as dairy products and meat and you will be more likely to lose unwanted pounds.  38  Is not it?

Think short term

      39  Focus on half to one week at a time or, if essential, one day at a time. Feel great about the healthy choices you made at the last meal instead of wondering about the slip you made at the party last weekend.

  40

    You are on your way to a healthier, happier life, with decreased risk of serious diseases, including diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease and increased energy. As a result, you will have more time, energy and money to devote to the people and activities valuable for you.

    A. That is another powerfulmotivation!

    B.Think of what you have gained

    C.Pay attention to the energy you get

    D.Keep your goals in possible short-term amount
