  17. 17. WHILE YOU READ MUSIC IN OUR LIVES A lot of people like many different types of music. We do not all like the same types of music but, probably, we all like music. However, a recent study reveals that we dont have the same feelings when listening to music. This study investigates the impact of different types of music on tension, mood, and mental clarity. A total of 144 people completed a psychological profile before and after listening for 15 minutes to four types of music - grunge rock, classical, New Age, and designer. According to the study, when listening to grunge rock music there is a significant increase of hostility, sadness, tension, and fatigue and there is a significant reduction in caring, relaxation, mental clarity, and vigour. In contrast, after listening to the designer music (music designed to have specific effects on the listener) there is a visible increase in caring, relaxation, mental clarity and vigour, and significant decrease in hostility and fatigue. Unlike grunge rock music, which can make people feel like a bear with a sore head, designer music can make people feel over the moon. The results for New Age and classical music were mixed. But dont worry. The study does not mean that if grunge makes you happy and relaxed you should stop listening to it. After all, we dont all react the same to different stimuli.

  28. 28. TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE READING THE MOST FAMOUS STATUETTE IN THE WORLD Shortly after the creation of the First Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1927, film directors and producers started to discuss ways to honour outstanding achievements in the new motion picture business. One of the most important ideas was the creation of a trophy. MGM art director Cedric Gibbons took the idea to several Los Angeles artists who submitted designs. The sculptor George Stanley proposed the figure of a knight standing on a reel of film, hands gripping a sword. The Academys world- renowned statuette was born. Initially, Oscar was solid bronze. Then, due to a shortage of metal during World War II, Oscars were made of painted plaster for three years. Today, the statuette is gold-plated britannium. Oscar is thirteen and a half inches tall and weighs eight and a half pounds. He hasnt been changed since he was first created, except when the pedestal was made higher in 1945. Officially named the Academy Award of Merit, the statuette is better known by its nickname, Oscar, the origins of which arent clear.
