The HMM-based TTS can produce a highly intelligible and decent quality voice. However, sometimes the synthesized speech exhibits perceptibly annoying glitches due to F0 extraction errors in the training data and voiced/unvoiced swapping errors in F0 generation. In the conventional MSD based F0 modeling [10], the dual but incompatible two probabilistic(More)
Learning a second language is hard, especially when the learner's brain must be retrained to identify sounds not present in his or her native language. It also requires regular practice, but many learners struggle to find the time and motivation. Our solution is to break down the challenge of mastering a foreign sound system into minute-long episodes of(More)
Stress-induced viscous flow is the characteristic of atomic movements during plastic deformation of metallic glasses in the absence of substantial temperature increase, which suggests that stress state plays an important role in mechanically induced crystallization in a metallic glass. However, it is poorly understood. Here, we report on the stress-induced(More)
Sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy (SHML) or Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is an uncommon but well-defined benign self-limited clinicopathological entity. It mainly involves lymph nodes. Extranodal involvement is seen in up to 43% of cases, with the most common location in the head and neck region. Primary RDD occurring in the bone is rare with(More)
