But those aren’t his only talents. The YouTuber-turned-pop star also writes honest lyrics about relationships and love that his fans can easily relate to. Born in South Africa and raised in Australia, Sivan began singing as a child, performing at local charity events and making it to the finals of a TV singing competition. However, it was his YouTube channel that sparked his rise to fame. Viewers loved Sivan’s funny, relatable videos, and by the time he was 18, he had over four million subscribers. One of his videos even earned him a Teen Choice Award. Internet fame helped Sivan gain even greater notice. In 2015, he landed a record deal and produced the hit song “Youth,” which made it to the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. His most recent album, Bloom, featuring the lead single “My My My!” has been an even bigger success. Sivan has also worked in film, appearing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Boy Erased. The song he wrote for the latter film earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song. 特洛伊.希文憑藉清新的聲音和迷人的歌喉擄獲了數百萬人的心。但那些並不是他唯一的天賦。這位從YouTuber轉變而來的流行樂明星也撰寫關於人際關係和愛情方面的坦率歌詞,讓他的歌迷能夠容易產生共鳴。 希文在南非出生、澳洲長大,從小就開始唱歌,並在當地的慈善活動中演出,一路唱到一個電視歌唱比賽的決賽。然而,讓他一舉成名的是他的YouTube頻道。觀眾喜愛希文風趣、能產生共鳴的影片,到他十八歲時,他的訂閱數超過了四百萬人。其中一支影片甚至替他贏得了青少年票選獎。 網路名氣幫助希文得到更多的關注。在二○一五年,他獲得唱片合約、灌製了暢銷歌曲〈青春〉,這首歌成功打進《告示牌》百大單曲榜前四十名。他的最新專輯《綻放》以〈My My My!〉作為主打單曲,甚至獲得更大的成就。 希文也拍電影,出現在《X戰警:金鋼狼》和《被消除的男孩》中。他為後者寫的歌曲替他贏得金球獎最佳原創歌曲的提名。 The songs written by Sivan often take inspiration from the pop star’s personal life. He writes openly about his relationships with men, and his music videos often feature same-sex relationships—something few artists dare to do. While Sivan is confident in his sexuality today, he struggled with it when he was younger, for he didn’t see many gay people around him or in the media. He finally came out to his family at the age of 15 and has since become an advocate for LGBTQ rights. He’s also won two GLAAD awards for his contributions to the LGBTQ community. More recently, Sivan has kept busy with his collaboration with Ariana Grande on the single “Dance to This,” as well as appearing in her music video for “Thank U, Next.” In 2018, the artist also launched a yearlong world tour, including stops in Taipei, Tokyo, and Seoul, to promote his album Bloom. Sivan’s musical talents and engaging personality have allowed him to build strong connections with fans all

Dyslexia and Hyperlexia

Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Psychology

Even though I had been studying reading problems in children for a number of years as a means of understanding cognitive processes, I became deeply committed to the study of developmental dyslexia after my encounter with S. H. , a dyslexic college student. Until then, dyslexia to me remained an interesting phenomenon but somewhat removed from the mainstream of my research interests. The facts that, in spite of his superior IQ, S. H. could read no better than a child in the fifth grade and misspelled even common words such as was and here, however, took me by surprise and made me appreciate the intriguing and challenging nature of developmental dyslexia. This led to a series of studies of college students with reading disability, a group that is relatively unexplored. The general plan of these investigations was to study a small number of disabled readers at any given time, rather intensively. Even though this approach limits the generalizability of the research findings, it lays bare some of the most interesting facts about dyslexia which are obscured in large-scale statistical studies. These studies have now extended well over a decade and are still continuing. As soon as these studies were started, it became obvious that not all reading-disabled college students are alike and that disabled readers could be classified into three broad categories: those with poor decod ing skill, those with poor comprehension ability, and those with a combination of these two deficits.
