Today, please allow me to greet my blogsite Nature's Eye: naomispenny.blogger.com a Second Anniversary. I never thought I will still be posting up to this moment. I was for quite sometime lost for words and ideas as a writer's blockout came to me for many times that I lost count. My respect to bloggers and writers who keeps writing with so much passion rain or shine. Being in this modern times, I thought signing up there or register here will increase my reader or pageview traffic but it does not work that way. Before my blog was full of ads that even I can not read my blog clearly which is so annoying that is why I removed a lot of code and I did no t expect the result has increased my viewers. Thank you so much everyone in one point or the other you happened to pass by my blog or through my blog I was able to help you be informed. My motto in life is " The more you get to know about little things the more you will realize how little you know. "
The truth about in blogging there is no formula... sometimes it works today but next time it won't. There are some will advice you at least to post twice or thrice a week or just posts regularly.There were times when I posted new article I get to have a lot of views and there were times as if I no one noticed my new article. And what surprised me the most is when I was not posting any blog at all (ran out of ideas or when I was so busy) and yet it is all time high. In the end what matters most to me is to hope in my own little way I was able to inform,inspire
and help you. One again thank you Everyone...

I wish I get to post about myself and the travel I did this year in Singapore. I am not confortable talking about myself even just to describe myself only one thing is for sure I always describe myself as a proud mom and blogger. Allow me to brag a little of how I feel . The best reward that I received is when some of my students for such a long time I did not hear from them then all of a sudden send me a message thanking me that I helped them in my own little waythe subject that I was teaching them and seeing my two sons to become successful. My eldest son, who is a R.N.works as a Company Nurse and my youngest son is a 1st year college student taking up B.S. Computer Scinece ,who is a scholar in a state college in our city. I feel so old na... I do not know what picture is best to feature this post but no matter what I hope to hear from all of you soon.

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has died, a family member told ABC News. He was 82.
De la Renta, who most recently designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
Born in the Dominican Republic in 1932, de la Renta left home at 18 to study painting in Madrid. It was there he developed a love of fashion design and began an apprenticeship with Cristóbal Balenciaga, who became his mentor, and then, landed a job with Lanvin in Paris.
"When I first arrived here in 1963, all the names on clothes were the name of [the store]," he told Gotham magazine last year. "You made your clothes, you sold them to the store, and they quickly removed the label and put the label of the store. If it was a dress at Saks Fifth Avenue, the label was Saks Fifth Avenue. Bergdorf Goodman was Bergdorf Goodman. But it was a time of transition."
He made his name in the early 1960s when first lady Jaqueline Kennedy frequently wore his designs, and launched his own label in the mid-1960s.
In 1965, the designer launched his own label, and soon caught the eye of former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Other first ladies including Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton would follow suit, as well as a bevy of A-list stars, from Amy Adams to Sandra Bullock to Jessica Biel and countless others.
Since Kennedy, first ladies Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush all frequently wore de la Renta gowns.
He also launched a successful bridal line, and most recently, designed Amal Clooney's wedding gown.
"George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can't imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress," she told Vogue last month. "Meeting him made the design process all the more magical, as he is so warm and such a gentleman."Amal Clooney

Cross-posted on the Google for Work blog. Japan faces a critical shortage of radiologists. Although major hospitals are well equipped to conduct scans, the scarcity of experts to read them and give patients their diagnoses means that people, especially those in rural areas, often have to wait a long time to discover their results. This can have tragic consequences for people with serious conditions. To address this shortage and help people get accurate diagnoses faster, Medical Network Systems Inc. (MNES) in Hiroshima started running a remote diagnosis service in 2000. Rather than waiting for patients to come to hospitals, we bring the radiology equipment to them. This teleradiology service has helped combat the challenge of getting scanning technology to people in remote areas; however, we are still short on specialists that can read the scans, and we wanted to find ways to give access to patients in areas without specialists. Last year, our team started using Google Cloud Platform to power our remote-diagnosis systems. Patients used to be given a hard copy of their scan to take to a doctor or specialist. Moving the process to the cloud speeds everything up. All of our buses are equipped with CT scanning machines, so our technicians upload images and scans right from the bus. Specialists can then log into the system from wherever they’re working and see the scans and diagnose the patient remotely. Reading scans is a very specialized process. Radiologists must examine lots of images and scans in a very particular sequence, and it’s important that this process isn’t laggy or slow. One of the benefits of using Google’s services is that they can handle massive volumes of information. Google App Engine processes the images and data in the right sequence and enables us to cross reference patient inputs with existing radiographic and pathological information. Instead of waiting for a few days or a week for a diagnosis, which was the usual turnaround for our teleradiology service, patients get their results within a few hours. And it’s not just our patients benefiting from remote diagnosis; enabling our radiologists to work from anywhere has meant that many of our female specialists are able to stay in the workforce — diagnosing scans while working from home and taking care of their kids. With so few radiologists in Japan, this flexibility helps us keep skilled technicians in the workforce. We’re optimistic about the potential for cloud-based technology to enrich our understanding of pathological issues and believe it signals a new chapter for the healthcare industry by removing geographical barriers between patients and doctors. - Posted by Dr. Naoyuki Kitamura, CEO, Japan’s Medical Network Systems Inc. source: http://googlecloudplatform.blogspot.com
