1.Do you mind noises?
It’s really hard for me to say no. I mean, I really can’t bear noisy people, noisy places or even noisy things. For me noise is the number-one distractor when it comes to studying or working. You know, they actually just go ahead and interrupt my flow of thoughts.
2.What types of noise you come across in your daily life?
Well, I have to say that I face up to a rich variety of noises on a daily basis. The first type of noise is from traffic, especially during the rush hours. The second is noise from factories, construction sites which never fail to distract me from working, thereby reducing my productivity.
3.Are there any sounds that you like?
I think there is one sound that can always lull me to sleep, the rain sound. There are nights I was so stressed out that I can hardly sleep no matter how much I tried, and then I went online searching for some sound for deep sleep or relaxation, and rain sound is always one of the top choices. And since then rain sound has become my go-to on sleepless nights.
4.Where can you hear loud noise?
From a number of sources. It can come from the crazy drivers down there on the streets. It can come from a building being built. It can come from a music festivals or a DJ party where the crowd totally go wild. It can even come from a crying baby or a fight next door.
5.Do you think there’s too much noise in modern society?
Indeed. I do think the level of noise is increasing overtime mainly due to human activities. The situation gets even worse if you live in a big modern city at a young age. Your auditory must be trained so hard to tolerate such noise everyday. It is really alarming now to raise people’s awareness towards this “invisible” killer.
6.Are cities becoming noisier?
Most cities in our country are suffering serious noise pollution due to rapidly increasing population and a massive amount of daily transportation. The consistently intense presence of noise does serious harm to the public health.
Do you like science?
I love science so much because it can explain everything in life. It allows me to know where things come from and how we act, why roses are red, how airplanes fly, and so much more! Besides, it is never ending, which means that there is always something new to discover because the topic of science is so huge.
What science have you studied?
I have studied several science in the middle school and university, such as maths, physics, chemistry, biology, geography and computer science. I found most of them were very challenging and thought-provoking.
What do you find most interesting about science?
Science in itself is pretty interesting because of the broad concepts that it brings into the picture. So, it is all about nature and its components: biology, physics, and chemistry do make our daily lives possible. I believe the fact that no matter one does not pursues it in their lives as a career, science surely helps in leading a better life.
Is there anything that you do not like about science?
Science is a beautiful subject which if learned practically can teach people a lot. But I believe it is taught poorly in schools making kids lose interest in it. Science is about doing experiments and trying new things, the lack of proper lab tools and the competition of getting good grades often takes away the real teaching that science has to offer.
Is your work related to Science?
Being a computer engineer science does not come to my use every day. Most of the times I am writing articles on things around or coding my way to make certain things happen. But Science does create curiosity in me and I do watch some shows on Discovery or read science fiction.
