I don't know why they put Johnny Damon instead of Wang.

But I do love the last sentence in this article, it goes

Through 28 starts, the numerical gauge tells it all: 16 victories, tied with Halladay, behind nobody.

Who is the one you will think of when you are alone?

The one who makes you laugh?
The one whom you can talk to?
The one who understands you very well?

Maybe none of them, you just want someone who is hot.

She doesn't know you at all.
She doesn't talk to you as well.
She makes you cry all the time.
You may say it's fine as long as she is hot.
I guess this is just like the principle how to pick up a secretary.

It's still raining outside.

I can enjoy working for the whole day. I'm with my Monte Carlo. What a beautiful sunday, isn't it??

I guess I need to stop working. Working too much drives people crazy... read more

There will be a medical physics workshop hold in Kaohsiuang this weekend. It's definitely worth to attend. Why?

Because the instructor is the most experienced, the most professional, the most handsome and the nicest person I have ever met in this field. In his class, it's just like sitting on the grass in spring, you'll feel the breeze all around you.

Tell you a little secret. Just pay a little extra attention, you may learn Monte Carlo as well. That's the bonus and the topic I'm thinking of all the time. Don't miss that...

By the way, if you guys can take some clear pictures on the topic I'm interested, please send me. Once approved, the reward will be a MSKCC employee appreciation watch. Sounds great, doesn't it? Go for it!!!

Illegal by Shakira

who would have thought that you could hurt me
the way you've done it
so deliberate so determined

Since you have been gone
I bite my nails for days and hours
and question my own questions on and on

Tell me now, tell me now
Why you're so far away
When I'm still so close

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
You said you would love me until you die
As far as I know you're still alive

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart

I tried so hard to be attentive
To all you wanted always supportive always patient
What did I do wrong?
I'm wondering for days and hours
it's here, it isn't here where you belong

Anyhow, Anyhow
I wish you both all of best
I hope you get along

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
You said you would love me until you die
As far as I know you're still alive

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
You said you would love me until you die
As far as I know you're still alive

You don't even know the meaning of the words I'm sorry
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart

Open heart

This song goes with the crying tone of Shakira style very well. I hope you guys can enjoy it. Besides, the lyrics is also very easy to understand, especially

You said you would love me until you die
As far as I know you're still alive

Ha Ha~ Way to go~~

As it said, Wang, Yanks in total control.

I guess we don't need to worry his position in the pitcher rotation for a while.

It has been one year and 9 months since I was here.

It's like I just got here yesterday. Time flies...

Today I just got my reappointment letter for the third year to work here. I feel quite happy about that.

The thing I want to share today is,
Although the work load is quite heavy and the work time is quite long, being a medical physicist is still much more fun than I thought. For an engineer like me who used to work in some places has little chances to meet female colleagues, working an engineer in a hospital is definitely a brilliant idea. An article in Scientific American mentioned, the most important thing to make an expert mind is the motivation. Yeah, motivation! Once you got motivation, you can make yourself an expert.

So, you guys may ask me, how long will I keep this motivation?
I shall say, as long as those colleagues are HOT~~

You should know that...

It's a common greeting phrase used between people here. When I was just here, I always tried to figure out something to reply this greeting. I think I need to tell something to be nice. (At that moment, I didn't know that I can just say "not much" yet...) You can't expect there always something happens everyday, especially an ordinary man like me. So, it really drives me crazy. However, it gets better after learning "not much".

As I said, you guys cannot expect there always something happens in my daily life. So, the one posted today is to express "not much"...

She's just sixteen years old
Leave her alone, they say
Separated by fools
Who don't know what love is yet
But I want you to know -

If I could fly
I'd pick you up
I'd take you into the night
And show you a love
Like you've never seen - ever seen.

It's like having a dream
Where nobody has a heart
It's like having it all
And watching it fall apart
And I would wait till the end of time for you
And do it again, it's true
I can't measure my love
There's nothing to compare it to
But I want you to know -

Thanks GOD, Friday is almost there...

Since I was starting the clinical rotation, it became quite busy. Besides, we also started the annual QA recently, so you can imagine how tight the schedule is.

The clinical stuffs are quite interesting, especially I can see more places and people. Although seeing some patient may not be so exciting, however it is still very fresh to me. One thing I have to mention again, there are bunches of hot girls in this hospital, really, lots of...

After these 4 days, I have to say, "I LOVE THIS JOB!!" again.

I've been starting my clinical rotation since this Monday.

I totally realized how great those clinical staffs are. Unlike before, I can sit in front of my computer all day, I have to run all the places to "rotate". It really kills me. However, it's quite exciting that I finally have somebody to chat with. By the way, I discovered several cute girls in our hospital. That would be the most important gain...

Anyway, I have to salute all those clinical staffs all around the world.
YOU GUYS ROCK!! read more

This is where I live in NYC.
People usually see the pictures taken from the west side, because it's easy to take some on the tram. However, if you want to see the other view, you have to walk onto the Queensboro bridge. That's what I was doing last Saturday. I walked all the way to Queens and took some pictures on the bridge.

Here goes another one.

I think it is quite different from the other side, isn't it??

By the way, it took me about an hour from my apartment to my office. I am thinking how long it would take by swimming... read more

(please switch the browser encoding to unicode)

來到紐約這麼久, 今天終於找到機會去現場看跟我同梯的阿民的比賽. 阿民真不愧是台灣之光, 到處都可以看到台灣人.

不用我說, 大家應該都知道, 阿民這場投的不好, 洋基也打得不好, 被曬成跟豬頭一樣, 還沒看到贏球, 實在是很鬱悶. 唯一慶幸的事就是沒有買太貴的票, 不然看到輸球實在會很ooxx.

今天小民會輸球, 我認真檢討後發現, 應該歸咎於洋基球場辣妹實在是太多了, 古語有云, 紅顏禍水, 一點兒都沒錯. 坐在我旁邊的一個韓國妹, 搞不清楚狀況, 皮膚幼咪咪, 白拋拋的, 搞得我實在沒辦法專心為小民加油. 實在是...

有多辣, 自己看唄...

穿短裙也就算了, 沒事還站那麼高, 搞得人家怎麼專心幫小民加油咩...

看完後, 肯定你也忘記我今天是去看比賽了, 所以大家也就別怪小民了.

You guys should know that I have subscribed the playboy magzine since I was here.

This magzine is delivered with a hearty consideration, which is the magzine delivered in a sealed and opaque plastic bag. It can prevent those hot girls on the cover to be seen and nobody will know that you are the guy who subscribe Playboy. Because the bottom page is usually for some commercials of cigar or wine, the plastic bag has only one opaque side. I believe God listened to my pray. I recieved the latest issue last evening, so those hot girls come directly to my place. However, something happened. The bottom page of this issue is a commerical for Volkswagon. They want to prompt their new car "rabbit" and emphasize "the rabbit is back", so they put the back of the cover page of this issue. There are three hot girls on the cover page, therefore you can imagine there are three cute butts on the bottom page. The picture is as shown below.
Do you notice that? The issue is still in that opaque plastic bag. However, there is only one opaque side. So, everybody knew it is a playboy in that bag.... What should i say?? I guess you guys will say, Yabee. Yeah, exactly, yabee....

I told you guys, you must pray! read more

Sweet Caroline
(by Neil Diamond)

Where it began, I can't begin to know when
But then I know it's growing strong
Oh, wasn't the spring, whooo
And spring became the summer
Who'd believe you'd come along

Hands, touching hands, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
I've been inclined to believe it never would

And now I, I look at the night, whooo
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two, oh
And when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when holding you

Oh, one, touching one, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
Oh I've been inclined to believe it never would

Ohhh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good read more

AAPM 06 - My poster

Purpose: To develop a Monte Carlo dose calculation engine for electron beams that is feasible for routine clinical treatment planning.
Method and Materials: The dose calculation engine consists of a description of the clinical beams and a dose calculation module. A 12-component multi-source model was used to characterize the phase-space of the clinical beams. There are 6 components for each electrons and photons, corresponding to the 3 scrapers, x-jaws, y-jaws, and the direct component respectively. In addition, we have developed a method to account for the presence of arbitrary shaped cutout by modifying the last component of the standard beam model. For the dose calculation module, implementation of the Super-Monte Carlo method accelerates the calculation by using electron and photon tracks pre-calculated in water to avoid the computationally intensive sampling processes. These tracks are replayed in the patient computer model as defined by CT. To account for inhomogeneities, the step size and scattering angle were adjusted according to the CT voxel values and material indexes. The dose calculation engine was verified by comparing with film measurements in several different geometries.
Results: The results agreed with film measurements to within a few percent both in homogeneous and heterogeneous phantoms. Our method is faster than the analog Monte Carlo calculation by a factor of 6 to 10 and is comparable in performance to a commercial system. The modified beam models for arbitrary cutouts can be derived in a few seconds. The disk storage for pre-calculated tracks is about 5.5 GB and 125 MB for the standard beam models.
Conclusion: The developed Monte Carlo calculation engine is highly accurate and efficient. The disk space and computational time required are well within clinical acceptability. It is a highly promising dose calculation tool for routine clinical applications. read more


After the annual meeting of AAPM this year, I deeply recognize that how much I love this job.

It recalled all the passion I had in 1995, the first time I told my advisor that I wanted to do something about medical physics. Although I didn't make it at that moment, several years later I finally entered this field. Thanks GOD~
There is another thing makes me so happy to work in hospital. When I was in the elevator this morning, there were 8 girls with me. It's unbelievable especially to those guys who used to work in INER( What should I say?? The only thing I want to say is "It's never too late to make a change".
