Neh, Owh, and Eh

Neh, Owh, and Eh All humans have reflexes, such as: sneezing, hiccups, and burps. But there is other reflex that experienced by all infants, namely: "crying". Cries of infants can show us about what they need. (for example: food, comfort, sleep, etc.). If their needs are not answered, then most likely they would be crying hysterically.

Baby's cry is an expression of their needs. If the baby left to cry in a long time, it will result in the disruption of infant growth and development of intelligence.

Dunstan Baby Language is a system that learned the meaning of crying babies. This system includes several "language" used by babies from day one to deliver their needs. These cries are universal, and applies to all babies in the world. Dunstan Baby Language is intended for all pregnant women, and parents who just had babies with less than three months of age.

According to Dunstan Baby Language, there are some universal word (or sound reflexes) used by the baby. Some of them are:

- Neh (I'm hungry)
Infants use sound reflex "Neh" to communicate to us that they are hungry. This sound is produced by pushing the tongue to the roof of the mouth (a bit like sucking reflex). This is a sign of the need for breast milk.

- Owh (I'm sleepy)
Infants use sound reflex "Owh" to communicate that they are tired. Generated voice sounded like a yawn. If you hear this sound reflex, immediately make your baby sleep.

- Eh (I have gas)
Infants use sound reflex "Eh" to communicate that they need to burp. The sound is produced when a large air bubble trapped in the chest, and reflexes are trying to remove it out of the mouth. So, your baby needs to burp.



In fact, the things I have learned is very valuable. By learning the language of babies, we hope that we can reduce the stress on our baby.

Gmail New Look

Gmail New Look For Gmail users, you may notice that Gmail is a little different lately. That because Google is testing a new look for their web-based email client in order to become simpler and enjoyable. Now, the new interface is available to all Gmail users. Your account will be automatically upgraded to the new look soon. But if you do not want to wait, you can switch to a new look by clicking Switch to the new look.

The Gmail New Look also includes new themes (personally, I am not a fan of Gmail themes). The new theme allows you to customize the look and feel of your Gmail account. Most of the new themes designed by artists, and background images provided by iStockphoto.

Looking at the changes in the new look of Gmail, I think that Google is now being focused on user convenience. The major change area is on the options tool bar, search feature, the use of labels, as well as the new user interface look slender. Navigation panel on the left is also more customizable, you can even resize the navigation area by clicking and dragging the arrow keys up or down.

Google Two-Step Verification The problem of the default authentication relies on something that is often easy to guess or rely on something the user knows. Many users rely on weak passwords. Many of them also rely on the same user names and passwords to protect all of their account (for example: they just create a single password to log in throughout their online accounts)

Like the incident that I experienced. This past month, I feel that my Gmail account has been hijacked. This can be seen on my last activity report on my Gmail account. I really panicked when I saw this. But I was very lucky when I found Google Two-Step Verification for all my Google account.
