My father was the gentlest, most loving and caring dad in the world----until we had an argument. During those moments, my words surely never reached his “open mind” because his ears were closed. There was no point trying to argue with my dad. He always had the last word.
I could never win.
When my father refused to understand that I needed the privacy of a phone in my room, my frustration turned to tears. He ended our “discussion”, leaving me silently defeated and miserable. So when he refused to change his idea about letting me go on my class trip to Montreal, I could do nothing but race from his room in despair.
With the hope that his eyes would be more open than his ears, I began to write a note that began with “Dear Daddy” and ended with how much I respected his opinio n, how much I hated to fight with him and how much I valued our relationship and, above all, how much I loved him.
I folded my note into an envelope, slid it under the door of his bedroom and raced back to my own room. It was only minutes before I heard a knock at my door. When I saw the look on my father’s face, I knew that my note had melted his temper and touched his heart.
The victory of winning my dad’s permission to go to Montreal was sweet. But even sweeter was the discovery of a strategy that enabled me to have an argument with my dad that didn’t end in tears, but instead with a hug. My “Dear Daddy” notes became a follow-up to many of our arguments.
Years later, one of my favorite stories was the “Dear Daddy” notes. It always made me smile to remember some of our most passionate arguments and how my dad would become so
pig-headed, until he read my notes.

19. The “Dear Daddy” note is a good way to ______.
A. avoid meeting her father suddenly
B. stop the argument in a funny way
C. deliver her message more quickly
D. persuade her father into supporting her
20. The author’s father impressed her most with his ______.
A. last word
B. generous love
C. bad temper
D. pig-headed decision
Big data of the human face can make a difference. Technology is rapidly catching up with the human ability to read faces. Apple’s iphone X has already used face recognition t o unlock the home screen. Face recognition is becoming increasingly common in China, where it has been equipped at ATM and KFC restaurants. It is also used by shop owners to catch shoplifters.
Some universities are using face recognition technology as a means to keep track of the students’ attendance in the classrooms. Students stand in front of a screen when they walk into lecture halls. Photos taken at the screen are matched with those logged in the university’s database. It’s believed that the system is highly accurate(精确的)because it can identify students even if they change their hair or wear makeup. Students have joked that face recognition is so strict that they don’t dare to skip classes anymore. The traditional way of taking attendance is through a roll call. The new system helps to improve efficiency(效率).
Face recognition technology has already been used in different fields in Chin A. Police have set up face recognition scanners at busy crossroads to catch jaywalkers, whose photos will be shown on the digital screen as a warning. In the hotels of Wuzhen attractions, face
scanner-equipped gates identify tourists staying in its hotels. The data collected will then serve as Entry Pass through the town’s various attractions. Tourists do not have to pa y extra entrance fee. Face recognition has also been in business use in Chin A. Alipay, for example, is using its face recognition technology to help customers at a Hangzhou KFC branch order food: The camera in the KFC will check customers’ face against the ID card photos linked to their Alipay accounts.
