>'Amazon coat' is a hit
A $129.99 winter coat by Chinese fashion label Orolay has become a number one best-seller on Amazon, becoming so popular it is now known as the "Amazon coat," after going viral on social media. The Women's Thickened Down Jacket has been reviewed more than 6,000 times on the e-commerce site and comes in five colors, with shoppers saying they are delighted to have got their hands on one. Its success is due in part to the influence of shoppers' peers, according to Alexis DeSalva, a senior retail and e-commerce analyst at consultancy Mintel. 56% of women aged 18 to 34 would be willing to buy something because a friend posted about it on social media, compared to 38% for all age-groups, according to a survey. Some shoppers will be attracted by the element of discovery, according Michelle Whelan, chief executive of marketing agency Geometry UK. "Influencers, celebrities, moms and teens are all connected through the purchase of a coat. An unknown coat (not a Canada Goose expensive coat) available on the most democratic retail platform in the world, at a price that everyone can afford," Welan said.


>Face-changing causes stir
A classic Chinese drama clip whose heroin's face was changed with that of another actress has gone viral, stirring a heated debate on AI-based image synthesis technology and the possible backlash it may face in the film and TV industry. Yang Mi's face acts naturally in the clip from wuxia television series "The Legend of the Condor Heroes", making it appear as if the role of Huang Rong was done by her. The classic female role was played by Athena Chu in fact. The video was uploaded to Bilibili, a popular Chinese video sharing website, by a netizen named "Huanlian Ge", who is a loyal fan of Yang. On Weibo, a popular Chinese social media platform, discussions regarding the video have attracted over 120 million views and more than 12,000 comments. Many people, though amused by the trick, saw it as a form of disrespect to the original actress, while others said that it violated her personality rights.


>Do we look like our names?
Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem examined whether a person's appearance can be influenced by their given name. To do this, they recruited independent observers and showed them color headshot photographs of complete strangers. Then they presented a list of names to the observers and asked them to choose the stranger's real name based on his or her facial appearance. The observers repeatedly beat the odds of correctly identifying a person's name based on their facial appearance alone. The researchers also found that observers are less good at guessing the given name of people who use a nickname exclusively. This indicates that a person's appearance is affected by their name only if they use it, and not if it simply appears on a birth certificate. "We suggest this happens because of a process of self-fulfilling prophecy, as we become what other people expect us to become," said Dr Ruth Mayo, senior lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
