I am playing gample

These days I have been spending hours surfing the websites of Graduate school in order to find a right school in the meaning that I will be proud of entering it and it will be satisfactory of accepting me. There are so many schools and so many mentors that I can not make a choice. I am just playing a gamble.

When I decided to enter an university three years ago, I didn't have such a tough time because my family helped me and the universities are in China. But this time, I am going to study in America which I have never been and is unfamiliar with. It is said America has many good schools and more opportunities. Like the people on the boat of Mayflower, I cherish this dream and take the risk to pursue it.

This morning, my roommates, who is also preparing to study overseas, told me he dreamed that I reveived many offers last night. I hope it is a good signal to me.

When gmail disabled

Were your gmail disabled? I noticed a discusion about this problem. If you have any browser extensions, toolbars, or third party software intended to interact with Gmail, especially when such software involves too much data transfer, Google may decide to disable your gmail account, some temporaliry, some for ever. Goole list some example, such as GmailFS, Greasemonkey. I myself understand the justice of google's actions, and believe that google won't betray its don't be evil motto, thought I noticed greasemonkey, one of my favourite firefox extensions, is on google's blacklist .

If your gmail is unfortunately banned by google,there is a site to complain

Google Scholar recently added the ability to find related articles for a paper. Its is a link Related Article together with cited by and webseach attched to each search result. if not notified by offical google blog post, I would have neglected it. Some one tried it, and writes:

"so I decided to try it out with a paper from my former life as a graphics person. It was a paper in SIGGRAPH a few years ago called the "Office of the Future" and it dealt with projecting images onto surfaces that aren't exactly flat. If you predistort an image before you project it, you can often cancel out the different surfaces as you project onto them, which lets you create the appearance of a flat screen again. Here's a picture that gives you the idea. It's completely unrelated to me or the paper, but it demonstrates the concept really well (I just did a flickr search for [projection surface] and found a nice result–thanks flickr! I don't read German,... Source: "

Matlab 7 With Sp3

Matlab 7 With Sp3 (full 3 Cd ISO)

MATLAB is a high-level technical computing language and interactive environment for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis, and numeric computation. Using MATLAB, you can solve technical computing problems faster than with traditional programming languages, such as C, C++, and Fortran.

You can use MATLAB in a wide range of applications, including signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, financial modeling and analysis, and computational biology. Add-on toolboxes (collections of special-purpose MATLAB functions, available separately) extend the MATLAB environment to solve particular classes of problems in these application areas.

MATLAB provides a number of features for documenting and sharing your work. You can integrate your MATLAB code with other languages and applications, and distribute your MATLAB algorithms and applications.

Key Features:
High-level language for technical computing
Development environment for managing code, files, and data
Interactive tools for iterative exploration, design, and problem solving
Mathematical functions for linear algebra, statistics, Fourier analysis, filtering, optimization, and numerical integration
2-D and 3-D graphics functions for visualizing data
Tools for building custom graphical user interfaces
Functions for integrating MATLAB based algorithms with external applications and languages, such as C, C++, Fortran, Java, COM, and Microsoft Excel

Why my blog is called warm sping harbor lab

I invent the term Warm Spring Harbor Lab myself with the inspiration of the famous Cold Spring Harbor Lab, a international biological science research institute which sees the revolution of molecular biology. WSHL is a kind joke of CSHL. Another source is that the Anhui province, in which my university locates, actually have many warm springs in the Huangshan Mountain region. The third consideration is that I am always thinking of this term. I hope to set up such a institute in China, and promote the development of science in my country.

I used to think I am the first one to invent this term. However, I google it just now and found a papers in Science magazine published in 2004 had touched this name. Unfortunately, I fall behind.

Avril Lavigne

This is the first time I listen to Avril Lavigne. Long before today I have noticed her beautiful name and grace posters. She rarely smiles. She impress you with a remote and pride attitude, something like a girl in one of Murakami Haruki's novel, Dance! Dance!Dance! this kind of girls have a talent to observe and control others. however, I didn't become a fan of Avril then because I have seen too many quick-coming-and -quick-going singers with a beautifle face but an ugly voice. I have a prejudice toward newly emerging actrees.

My idea changed when I come to losing grip, the first song of the album Complicated. Her style is a little like Sun Yanzi, relaxed and comfortable. I continued. the song complicated convert me to a funs of Avril. And then,Tomorrow. The voice souds so sweet that I feel my sweetheart whisp around my ears.

I have just listen to Avril, I can only recommend the following
  • complicated
  • skater boy
  • tomorrow
List to be continued.
