    1. But thirdly, and most valuably, the template gives you a big space at the bottom to write sentences that summarise the page.  That is, you start writing your critical response on the notes themselves.

      I do much this same thing, however, I'm typically doing it using Hypothes.is to annotate and highlight. These pieces go back to my own website where I can keep, categorize, and even later search them. If I like, I'll often do these sorts of summaries on related posts themselves (usually before I post them publicly if that's something I'm planning on doing for a particular piece.)

    2. I kept losing content that I edited out and then wanted to put it back in.

      This is where bits like version control of academic documents can be incredibly valuable!

    1. intellectually lazy

      Word choice! What does it mean to be "intellectually lazy"? I think a great example of this can be seen when we talked last class about note taking and how taking notes should be a continual process, one which you constantly refer to and add to your notes, as opposed to taking notes and not looking at them again until you need something.

      this is just for test

    1. Vulvar cancer statistics Vulvar cancer is rare. According to the American Cancer Society, about 6,200 women in the United States are diagnosed with it each year.  Vulvar cancer usually grows slowly and may begin as precancerous changes that can be treated before they become cancer. The median age of diagnosis for Vulvar cancer is 68, and the disease's five-year survival rate is about 71%.

      This is a great section that answers a lot of searcher's intended questions!! Consider a "statistics" section for each cancer type.

    1. The result of this externalization, Blair notes, is that we come to think of long-term memory as something that is stored elsewhere, in “media outside the mind.” At the same time, she writes, “notes must be rememorated or absorbed in the short-term memory at least enough to be intelligently integrated into an argument; judgment can only be applied to experiences that are present to the mind.”

      Indeed memory is being atrophied as a result of easy to access externalization, the temptation to just offload it onto the computer makes the forgetting curve even sharper. The concepts don't present to the mind when needed because since we didn't commit to our memory we can hardly perceive correlations to what we previously read. Simply we miss our chances to recall & connect new concepts and knowledge because we don't commit them to our memory.

      当且设备屏幕支持广色域且操作系统支持色彩管理时,才会以正确的方式显示广色域图片。

      • iPhone 7 / 7 Plus (2016)
      • MacBook Pro (Late 2016)

    3. 我尝试了多款写作软件

      我尝试了 MWeb、Bear、Letterspace 和 Microsoft Word:

      MWeb 当前在 iOS 端的完成度还比较低,因此其语法解析速度慢是可以理解的。在最新的设备上,MWeb 没有任何性能问题,但是功能缺失和一些 Bug 让人不能把它当作主力使用。其 Mac 版本是一个很强大工具,不但支持直接发布到 WordPress、Medium 等博客平台,还支持静态网站的生成。

      Bear 是一个广受好评的写作新秀,按订阅模式收费。相比起写博客,它更像是一个本地备忘录的替代者。可能是因为颜值过高、彩蛋较多,在 iPad 3 上 Bear 的性能也一般。

      Letterspace 是一个极简的 MarkDown 写作工具,简单到连图片都不能插入。但就算是简单成这样,它还是不能流畅运行。

      至于微软 Word,不到万不得已,我不推荐任何人把它当作重度写作工具。

    1. In a Hewlett Packard online survey of 527 college students at San Jose State University, 57 percent of students who responded said they preferred print materials to e-books when studying. When citing reasons for their preference, 35 percent of print users cited “note-taking ability” as a reason for preferring print vs. six percent of those who favored e-books.

      Great stat for hypothes.is..

    1. Students who were part of the experimental group (35.41%, N = 7) performed worse than their peers (38.54%, N = 43) onthe pre-test. On the post-test students who participated in collaborative note-taking did significantly better (72.49%) than their peers (64.17%). Presumably this means that the students who participated in the study had lower levels of baseline knowledge at the outset, but they had a more robust level of knowledge by the end of the class and the experiment than did their peers who had taken notes individually. The difference of 8.28% is strikingly similar to the difference in grades. As the results indicate, these are difficult tests for students. The experimental group did not just perform almost a letter grade better in grades; they also performed almost a letter grade better on the pre/post tests

      Pre-post tests showed better gains (again by about 8%) for collaborative note-takers than for students who did not take notes collaboratively.

    2. Table 2 shows that the average grade across all classes and groups (experimental and control) was 72.02%. Students in the experimental group had an average grade of 79.66%, while the control group average was a 71.87% (a difference of 7.79%). Students who participated in collaborative notes performed nearly a single letter grade better than did their peers in the same classes. The ANOVA result found significance at the .01 level (F = 5.47, p < 0.01). Further, Bartlett’s test for equal variance returned a non-significant value, indicating a reliable ANOVA model. It is possible to say there was a statistically significant difference between the control group and the experimental group.

      Students who took notes collaborative scored nearly 8% higher on their course grades than students who did not.

    3. The problem found in the literature is that students are not efficient note takers, meaning they only successfully capture information about 20% of the time, and they are organizationally flawed and therefore miss how information should fit together. These shortcomings, efficiency and organization, are particularly acute in individuals taking notes on a computer alone (Mueller & Oppenheimer, 2014). Mueller and Oppenheimer (2014) specifically find that computers –when used in isolation –lead to lower levels of information retention, and they postulate this is due to students trying to bestenographers with keyboards instead of actively engaging with the material.

      Summary of the problem with taking notes on computers as opposed to by hand, ie the temptation to try to be a stenographer rather than engaging with and interpreting the material.

    1. An algorithm

      Interesting. The algorithm should be worked on early, as it will need to inform any required changes to the data model (eg, new selectors)

    1. Since civilization obeys aninternal erotic impulsion which causes human beings to unite in a closely-knit group, it can only achieve thisaim through an ever-increasing reinforcement of the sense of guilt.
    2. A child who has been veryleniently brought up can acquire a very strict conscience. But it would also be wrong to exaggerate thisindependence; it is not difficult to convince oneself that severity of upbringing does also exert a stronginfluence on the formation of the child’s super-ego.

      genetic vs. environmental influences on the formation of conscience

    3. loss of love and punishment on the part of the external authority - hasbeen exchanged for a permanent internal unhappiness, for the tension of the sense of guilt

      guilt arising from "big other" external and super-ego internal

    4. fear of loss of love

      helplessness and dependence on other people

    5. What is bad is often not at all what is injurious or dangerousto the ego; on the contrary, it may be something which is desirable and enjoyable to the ego
    6. we shall add that even when a person has not actually done thebad thing but has only recognized in himself an intention to do it, he may regard himself as guilty; and thequestion then arises of why the intention is regarded as equal to the deed
    7. His aggressiveness is introjected, internalized; it is, in point of fact,sent back to where it came from - that is, it is directed towards his own ego. There it is taken over by aportion of the ego, which sets itself over against the rest of the ego as super-ego, and which now, in theform of ‘conscience’, is ready to put into action against the ego the same harsh aggressiveness that the egowould have liked to satisfy upon other, extraneous individuals
    8. satisfaction of the instinct is accompanied by an extraordinarily high degree ofnarcissistic enjoyment, owing to its presenting the ego with a fulfilment of the latter’s old wishes foromnipotence.
