I recently found a text, written by Nina Berman, an American documentary photographer as well as an associate professor at Columbia University, called « The victims of fake news ». I read this article on the Columbia Journalism Review website, which is an American magazine, published at a frequency of two editions per year since 1961 by the Columbia University Graduate School of journalism. This magazine treats about news, media industry trends, analysis, professional ethics and the stories behind news.

In the news article that I chose, the main subject is “Cognitive Ability and Vulnerability to Fake News”, which is the title of the article, and it is written by David Z. Hambrick, Madeline Marquardt on February 6, 2018. You can find it on Scientific American. It talks about a study that prove there is a link between cognitive ability and vulnerability to fake news. Researchers find out a major risk factor for damaging effects of misinformation. The study demonstrate that older adults are particularly affect by fake news; they have more tendency to think it is true information.

In summary, the text says that there are a lot of benefits that exercise has on our brain. With many researches, they found that exercises have an impact on the memory, the cardiovascular fitness, and on the cognition (ability of acquiring knowledge). It also says that sports with teams were more popular; people choose team sports instead of free gym membership and home-based programs. The text explains that there is still a lot to find about the connection between the exercise and the brain.

Did you know that climate change does not only affect icebergs in Antarctic but also river in Europe? The article "Climate Change Is Altering Flood Timing in Europe" written by Michelle Hampson is just about that. A lot of long term studies have been done since 1960 to compare and understand flood timing. Earlier flooding has been proved by analysing all data collected from different hydrometric stations in Europe.

A few days ago, I read an article on the website of the American association for the advancement of science. It was talking about changes in the Arctic Ocean. Since 2002, a team of scientists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, led by Igor V. Polyakov, is making observations in this part of the Earth. The researchers set buoys to collect data during the different seasons and they compared them with those they take with satellites. They notice that the Arctic Ocean starts to have more common features with the Atlantic Ocean.
