    1. Beamer

      Another point worth mention, you must have beamer package installed in your texmf tree or if you use linux or macOS, install beamer separately. None of these commands or options will work if beamer itself is not installed. These tutorials are useless if they do not mention these things.

    2. nsert the defaul

      This information is wrong or outdated. The way to insert a default org-exporter is to do M-x-org-export-default and select default when they present for options.

    1. More recently, scientists who are not themselves computational experts are conducting data analysis with a wide range of modular software tools and packages

      What do you think?

    1. boxplot is a type

      Need to add a code that can produce boxplot for a single variable and state that the code will be

      data %>%
       ggplot() +
       geom_boxplot(aes(x = "", y = continuous_variable))
    1. A big listicle with plenty of misinformation about prices of the tools, and outdates or broken links. These people do not maintain what they write. Practically none of the tools are good, except for freeplane/freemind to some extent, and I'd say wisemapping.

      There is a need for developing better concept/mind mapping tools for regular use.

    2. browser enabled tool

      A good and free tool true, but you cannot connect the nodes and you cannot label the connectors. So, while a good mind mapping tool, practically useless for concept map as well.

    3. Mind42 is supported with free

      Free, fast and easy, but the interface is clumsy. It does not allow for linking of nodes, and it does not allow for labelling of arcs. Useless but a nice diagramming tool.

    4. LucidChart provides an entirely new perspective to the process of creating diagram

      It is nice and has free options, and for educators. Can be "tweaked" to produce concept maps, but clumsy.

    5. MindManager

      Good tool but NOT free.

    6. Like others, using this tool

      Looks good, but too expensive for 20 bucks a month. Useless.

    7. Brainstorming could never be simple

      A nice visual editor that works in html but clumsy. Not worth the six dollars a month they are asking. But can be useful for concept mapping, not so much as mind mapping

    8. are in a hurry

      Anything but. The site did not open after five minutes and I gave up.

    9. t’s one of the best tool I’ve used

      Broken link, useless

    10. Easiest and simplest mind mapping tool

      Not quite. Very ugly and not at all user friendly.

    11. FREE

      No, it is expensive, there is no free option.

    1. Collaborative close reading involves breaking the class into small groups and passing short excerpts from a text around the room. Each group annotates the passage, making their marks and weaving a colorful web of observations atop the author’s words

      Select short texts >> pass around the class >> ask students to annotate

    1. veridical

      Theory of planned behaviour by Ajzen; veridical here means truthful. Three factors:

      1. What is my attitude to the behaviour?
      2. What do others think or I think others think towards my behaviour (normative belief)?
      3. How much control I think or I believe I have towards my behaviour or what factors either make it easy or make it difficult for me to conduct my behaviour?

      These will determine my intention to actually act my behaviour, and then intention precedes my actual conduct.

    1. A very important note for writing the introduction of a journal article, and I think it is useful for any article for that matter. Essentially four or five points:

      • Start with a compelling question, story, data, quote
      • Layout the map of the rest of the paper right there in the introduction leading to the next section
      • Spell out the main argument in the introduction section, this helps to lay out the rest of the map of the paper together
      • Use simple language.
      • Use one of the two approaches or horses for courses - either write a rough sketch in the beginning and then rewrite, or write the perfect story right from the beginning. I like the former approach.

    1. even use the data to try to disprove what the original investigators had posited

      Isn’t this the point of reproducible and replicable research? Old Popper must be turning in his grave! Oh dear!

    2. people who had nothing to do with the design and execution of the study but use another group’s data for their own ends,

      This is the point of research. Give it, show it to others who can take your data and challenge your assumptions and find new meaning. Why is this a limitation?

    1. In study 2, why did the authors not employ a an intervention for the longhand note takers as well but only for the laptop group?

    2. Better paraphrasing and less word overlaps for longhand note takers. Were the students randomised? Did the students have similar background and experiences in note taking in each medium selected? How was that known?

    3. The study compared two note taking methods: laptop based note taking methods and longhand note taking methods. Used TED talks as cues or stimulus and paired students in a room to view and take notes using their favourite note taking methods. Then after 30 minutes the students were tested on their recall and concepts. The authors found that while there was not much differences in their recall and comprehension in or o for the facutual contents, when it came to testing concepts, those who took notes i in longhand performed better. Several arguments could be raised. This was not a typical class simulation as in a class the students are expected to read the materials beforeand beforehand and the lectures can augment these experiences. Here they did not have that opportunity.

    1. We do not have to worry about both bases in both strands. Any one strand is fine. Because A always pairs with T and C always pairs with G.

    1. An excellent commentary on what ails our current peer review system and how alternative quality assurance system might work in academics.

    1. People want health, not health care. And those who require the most health care and get the least health — high-need, high-cost patients with multiple or severe medical conditions — feel this most acutely.

    1. An excellent meditation that brings out the problem in today's computing culture: under-representation of the minority and females in computing, starting with the students and all the way up to venture capitalists and the culture. It is interesting how Bogost talks about alternative scenarios. Looks like this is a disbalance of power.

    1. The mixing of two distinct lineages led to most modern-day Indians. Elie Dolgin

      An important report.

    1. রা হাত িটেয় নেব

      রাষ্ট্র ঠিক হাত গুটিয়ে নেয়নি, ডিফেন্স কিন্তু বিভিন্ন খাতে গবেষণায় ভাল পয়সা ঢেলেছে।

    1. Provided that the clinical ...

      This rider contravenes with the first objective that people cannot be denied emergency services. How does the establishment exert its right to recover the cost of operations? Is it allowed to determine how much to charge and interest rates, etc?

    2. Which 20%? which 10%? Per day quota of visits? If the bed size is 100, it will be 10 patients but which ten patients? Will they be randomly selected? Same patient can receive the free treatment twice? what will determine this?

    1. I believe it unfair to demand that students watch the video outside of the class time for various reasons. If you have a blended learning environment, that of course provides a natural time and place to watch the videos, but it will be difficult to ensure all students watch a video as homework
    2. If reflection is not a regular part of your classroom culture, then implementing the flipped classroom will not be as effective

      How is it going to be helpful? What is its relevance?

    3. project-based learning (PBL), game-based learning (GBL), Understanding by Design (UbD), or authentic literacy, find an effective model to institute in your classroom

      Project based learning Game based learning Understanding by design

    4. must be paired with transparent and/or embedded reason to know the content

      So, on the test is not good enough? Hlep you in real life not good enough? WHAT is good enough?????

    5. just because I "free" someone, doesn't mean that he/she will know what to do next, nor how to do it effectively

      Good point. What's the way to bring students to use technology effectively?

    1. A specific component cause mayplay a role in one, two, or all three of thecausal mechanisms pictured

      Figure 1 here is particularly important.

    2. “sufficient cause,” whichmeans a complete causal mechanism, can bedefined as a set of minimal conditions andevents that inevitably produce disease; “mini-mal” implies that all of the conditions orevents are necessary to that occurrence

      Set of minimal conditions together define the sufficient cause or complete causal mechanism.

    3. an event, condition, or characteristicthat preceded the disease event and withoutwhich the disease event either would nothave occurred at all or would not have oc-curred until some later time

      The expression, "without which the disease or event would not have occurred", points out to another important concept here, the notion of counterfactual theory of causation.

    4. We can define a cause of a specific dis-ease event as an antecedent event, condition,or characteristic that was necessary for theoccurrence of the disease at the moment itoccurred

      Note the criteria:

      1. Cause as an event
      2. Cause as a condition
      3. Cause as characteristic
      4. Cause is antecedent
      5. Cause is necessary
      6. Cause is conditional We will see all of these conditions expanded
    5. we need a moregeneral conceptual model that can serve as acommon starting point in discussions ofcausal theories

      Note that we start with the example of the bulb and then expand to generalise this example to larger issues -- in our case, health.

    6. Theeffect usually occurs immediately after turn-ing on the switch, and as a result we slip intothe frame of thinking in which we identify theswitch as a unique cause

      Another important point -- often the last observable event tends to be considered the "cause" of an outcome. One must be careful to find out other possible causes of an outcome.

    7. When allother factors are in place, turning the switchwill cause the light to go on, but if one ormore of the other factors is lacking, the lightwill not go on

      This is a very important point in this paper. It points to the notions of multifactorial causality -- that is, an outcome will more often than not have more than one cause, and one cause is not usually sufficient to result in the effect.
