    How not to praise your employee’s work
    FeedbackFeed-twFeed-fbProviding negative feedback is one of the hardest parts of any manager’s job. For example, you would need different approaches for a new employee who may benefit from additional training as compared to a seasoned employee who always gets defensive. Theoretically, giving positive feedback should be much easier. Your employee does something great, you recognize his or her contribution, and everyone feels good about their work.

    Wild 'space weather' may threaten chances for alien life
    Solar-flareFeed-twFeed-fbEarth regularly endures violent ejections of material from the sun, but could similar eruptions in other solar systems make alien planets inhospitable to life? Two telescopes in the Mojave Desert are searching for these bursts of activity from stars, which could affect the development of distant planets and their potential for life. When material streams off of a star on a daily basis, it produces what scientists call "space weather."

Adam Bradley, a professor of English at the University of Colorado has described it in glowing terms. Rapping, he says, crafts "intricate structures of sound and rhyme, creating some of the most scrupulously formal poetry composed today." The highly structured nature of rap makes it particularly amenable to computer analysis. And that raises an interesting question: if computers can analyze rap lyrics, can they also generate them?
