PART B_2

Android robots
A theater play called Sayonara features an android actress. In the story, the young girl is suffering from a serious disease that is why her family hired an android to keep her company. The viewers are aware that one of the actors is an android and that is being controlled by another actor. However, it looks as if it is real, so they almost forget that it was just an android.
Ishiguro Hiroshi is the great mind behind this invention. He always wanted to become an artist ever since he was a high school student and started building robots in his early 30’s. His first android was modeled on his four-year-old daughter, while his second android was built for an exhibition. Many people could not recognize that it was a robot because it looks so real. He had also created an android that was a copy of himself and speaks with his voice.
This type of robot has the ability to have a natural conversation with humans. However, not all people feel comfortable with it. In fact, some people find it “creepy”. According to Ishiguro, this creepiness is called the “uncanny valley” which he is trying to cross over to bridge the gap between robots and humans.

PART B_2

An artist’s brain
A study has found that artists have different brain structures compared to non-artists. A medical examination of the brain was done to 21 art students and 23 non-artist students. The results came across an area of the brain called the precuneus, an area where all of the art students had more grey matter. The precuneus is associated with creativity and visual imagery functions which make artists capable to manipulate, combine, and deconstruct visual images in their brain. It also suggests that an artist could possibly be born with a talent. However, it is not clear whether the artist’s environment and training could affect their abilities and talents.
In addition to that, the students who participated also completed a drawing task to check the connection between their performance and their brain’s grey and white matter. Scientists found out that the volume of grey matter, which is composed of nerve cells, and white matter, which is responsible for communication between the regions of the grey matter, are increased in the cerebellum and the motor area which are involved in routine actions and fine motor controls. However, according to Chris McManus, the author of the paper, it is not easy which part of an artist’s talent is learnt or achieved by birth so, further studies should be done to observe how they develop their drawings as they grow older.
Studies were also made to look over other creative people such as musicians who also have excellent creative processing in these areas. This is proof that the human brain is flexible to training and does not easily change. Also, experts can discover unlimited information on what the human brain can do.

Nowadays, a lot of tourists are being viewed as rude by the local people. For instance, not following the proper dress code in certain places and being too loud in public areas are some behaviors that often make local people feel uncomfortable around tourists.

PART B_2

Things to consider when looking for a part-time job
Nowadays, a lot of students have been doing part-time jobs to support their needs. Those students who usually have part-time jobs do not get financial support from their families. However, some universities do not encourage students from having a part-time job most especially during school days as it might lessen their time for their studies. Although this could be true, some students are left with no choice but to continue working to make ends meet.
A university in Manchester started a program that offers advice to students that would help them choose the best part-time job. They suggest working inside the universities so that their employers would be more understanding of their situation. Also, students are encouraged to look for jobs that have flexible schedules and avoid those commission-based jobs. They also recommend students to work for only 15 hours per week and do not consider working beyond 20 hours. In addition to that, it is important for employers to be aware of the students’ schedules before they start working.
All in all, students must remember that they should give more time to their school responsibilities along with their health. It is essential that they still get enough time to rest so that the money and time they are spending in the university would not be put into waste.

PART B_2

The Hayabusa Project
In 2003, the Hayabusa Project was started by Japanese scientists. One of its goals was to collect soil samples on an asteroid named Itokawa. Such samples could help solve the mysteries of the solar system’s origin. But its most important goal is to develop ion engines for space exploration. Gases and liquids are used for most rocket engines, while ion engines used electric field which is so weak. However, if ion engines are used in space, that weak energy can become powerful because there is no gravity and air resistance.
Another goal is to develop an autonomous navigation system. Radio signal takes 16 minutes to travel the distance between the Earth and Itokawa. Hayabusa could not wait for commands during the emergency, so it had to decide on its own.
The goals became even more difficult because of Itokawa’s small size. Hayabusa tried twice before successfully landing and collecting soil samples. However, when headed home, it had fuel and battery problems which the team were able to solve. But things got worse when communication with Hayabusa was cut off.

PART B_2

Biodiversity is essential to maintain life on Earth. However, it is being threatened which could make people, animals, and plants impossible to survive. An example that shows the cause-and-effect relationships in nature is the island of Yakushima. It is covered with various plants, mountains, and a dense forest that is home to many endangered animals. Every year, Yakushima receives huge amounts of rainfall. The residents even joke that it rains “35 days a month.” However, Yakushima’s biodiversity is being threatened and one of the reasons is the damage caused by the yakushika, a native animal of Yakushima and the smallest deer in Japan. Over 16,000 yakushika move around in herds to eat plants which causes vegetation to disappear.

Researchers found that trees’ barks, especially the bark of citrus trees, are withering and peeling because yakushika most often eats them. This affects the business industry of the island since the citrus trees provide Yakushima’s major agricultural products. Based on a study, researchers supposed that yakushika are partly to blame for the damage because it started when yakushika used the paths that humans made to go to the forest easily. Doing so makes them eat as much as they can which harms biodiversity. Another reason is their increasing population. Fewer yakushika are being hunted because they were nearly extinct. Nowadays, the residents of Yakushima are thinking of solutions to control yakushika’s population which should be carefully done to prevent harmful effects on the ecosystem.
