    1. The study demonstrated the capacity of a third dose to broaden antibody-based immunity and boost protection against circulating variants of concern. However, it is interesting that neutralizing responses against the Beta variant, known to markedly escape vaccine-elicited antibody responses4, were only fractionally better in those receiving a Beta-specific booster immunization.

      Choi et al. showed that a Beta-targeted booster shot broadened antibody-based immunity and boosted protection against circulating variants, the neutralizing response against the Beta variant was only slightly better.

      @gerdosi thinks this points to Original Antigenic Sin.

    1. Interestingly, all four vaccine breakthrough infection subjects who had previous COVID-19 were seropositive for anti-membrane IgG during acute infection, while no breakthrough subjects without prior COVID-19 had detectable anti-membrane antibodies in the acute infection period (Figure 1I).

      Vaccinated individuals that experience a breakthrough infection do not develop antibodies to the parts of the virus that is not encoded by the vaccine.

    1. History of Computer Aided Language Learning Infographic by E-learning Infographics is included on the basis of fair use as described in the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Education 

      Attributions for non original content can be handled many ways - due to the brevity and simulated nature of this example, I managed them this way. But as in the original OER, a full attributions page would eventually become necessary for clean attribution and decluttered document layout.

    2. Consider the following infographic

      This would have been selected with SME. I wanted to demonstrate multiple means of representation and use an insert to demonstrate use of Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in OER.

    1. Chapter 4 Revision by Colleen Sanders is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License, except where otherwise noted.

      This is where I would work out, with instructor, what license this revision should bear. I opted for CC BY for now, but that could change depending up on whether the instructor wanted to move into remixing more copyrighted/openly licensed content.

    2. Reference List

      I culled the in-text citations to create a structured reference list, then placed it with the conclusions. Students are one click away from the extensively cited works while reading.

    3. Attribution

      Providing attribution for source material

    1. References

      Full list of sources cited in this chapter. In real life, these would all be properly formatted citations with links to articles.

    1. CMC gives language learners access to more knowledgeable individuals, either native speakers of the target language or more advanced nonnative speakers, than they might be able to encounter in a face-to-face environment, thus increasing their potential ability to learn. Indeed, in some environments, CMC provides the only possibility for access to NSs. (p. 12)

      Indented and italicized to offset the quote for navigability and readability.

    1. Configuration style is exactly the same for env_bang and env_setting, only that there's no "ENV!" method... just the normal class: EnvSetting that is called and configured.

    1. Musikalisches Wochenblatt

      Dass unter solchen Umständen die vorgetragenen Quartette die denkbar vollendetste Reproduction erfuhren, dass namentlich der eine ganze Welt tiefsten Seelenlebens umfassende Inhalt der Beethoven´schen Tondichtung eine hier vorher noch nie nur annäherend durchgeistigte, bis ins kleinste Detail hinein plastische Interpretations erfuhr, wird Jeder zugeben müssen, der diesem unvergesslichen Quartetteabend beiwohnte.

    1. On this model, students are responsible for their own education, often forming communities or societies to collaborate. Professors typically worked one-on-one with students, but from time to time would be enlisted to offer a series - or 'course' - of lectures on a given topic. The lectures could be (and often were) public, and were frequently attended by other professors in the same field.

      Reminds me of @KevinCarey1 describe the original university of Bologna, in his End of College. Don’t have the quote handy (one of many cases where #OpenAccess would allow for more thoughtful discussion), but the gist of that paragraph sounds similar to what @Downes is describing here

    1. religious occasions, intended to invoke God’s help to cope with hardships, or to offer God thanks for positive developments.

      thanksgiving was more of a religious experience; one where the relationship between God and the people was reflected upon and strengthened.

    2. But it was not until the 19th century that it became enshrined as the progenitor of the modern event.

      interesting and important point: we often think thanksgiving was a concrete holiday in 1692, but Paul argues it was spearheaded more by Lincoln

    1. Those annoying pop-up windows? My fault, at least in part. I designed a vertically-oriented popup window that included navigation tools and an ad for inclusion on webpages at some point in late 1996 or early 1997. It was intended to be less intrusive than inserting an ad into the middle of a user’s homepage. I won’t claim responsibility (irresponsibility?) for inventing the damned things, and I disclaim any responsibility for cascading popups, popups that move to the top, and those annoying “bot” windows that open different popups every few minutes. Still, the fault is at least in part mine, and I’m sorry. :-)

    1. It is this way with all of us concerning language; we believe that we know something about the things themselves when we speak of trees, colors, snow, and flowers; and yet we possess nothing but metaphors for things--metaphors which correspond in no way to the original entities.

      Truth = the original entities
