Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.


I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 22, 2013 12:35 AM

When I work with clients and their biz stories, and their organizational culture, I often talk about the need to develop patience. I also discuss with them the principle of deceleration resulting in acceleration.

This article, written by Drake Baer, explains both the need for patience and the principle of deceleration in order to accelerate. I know, it sounds so counter-intuitive! But it works.

What does this have to do with storytelling? Because way too often we rush to craft our stories without giving ourselves time to patiently sit with them, think about them, recraft them, learn more about ourselves from them, etc. 

Spending the time to reflect on your story will get you to a more powerful piece more quickly. And your story creativity will definitely kick in by bringing more patience into the process.

This notion is rarely talked about in articles, but acknowledged as part of the story process among some top performance tellers.

So take a breath, relax, reflect, and give your creativity a chance to emerge.

This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling

John Michel's curator insight, May 22, 2013 4:51 PM

Deep patience. Close attention. These are not virtues often associated with college students (or some tech workers, for that matter). But as Harvard art history professor Jennifer L. Roberts recently explained, the skills for finding the "details, relationships, and orders that take time to see" can be introduced.

Beijing's Pollution

Beijing's Pollution | Personal Life Style |

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, November 24, 2014 2:21 PM

Great picture to show the two sectors of China's society. In Beijing we see the combination of industry and post industrialized. 

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, November 24, 2014 11:40 PM

This picture taken by a photographer with the perfect lighting is brilliant....that is, if you're into deceiving people that the pollution from these power plants stays away from the higher class businesses and residences.  Looking at this picture you see the smoke coming from the power plant in China far in the distance creating a yellowish hue that could be thought to be from the sun.  Then closer in the scene we see what appears to be businesses and potentially some peoples homes.  This area is in a totally different color from the yellow we see to be associated with the pollution from the power plant.  Here we see a blue, commonly associated with clean water, covering the entirety of this area.  With the difference in colors these places seem to be as different as possible from each other.  In reality though, smog doesn't just stay in one area of the city where it is produced, but spreads throughout the entirety of a city.  There are no restraints on where the pollution can and can't be, it is free flowing into communities where people work and live.  If you're trying to sell a house here this picture wouldn't be a bad idea to use, although most natives aren't oblivious to what is really going on.

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, December 15, 2014 8:00 PM

This picture is interesting to say the least, it depicts two different cities, even though it is the same city. the picture does a good job at showing the major problem that pollution is causing to Beijing. While showing a smog surrounded city behind a clean, yet clouded looking city, drives this point of pollution home and raises the question is putting large factories and toxic fumes in the air, more important than the well being of your citizens?

Remy Lamers's comment, June 6, 2013 9:25 AM
I'm Remy and I work at the company that invented and developed Knowble. We think it's great that so many of you appreciate Knowble and making the effort to give feedback.

To date we haven't found a proper method to make phrasal verbs work properly. We do consider adding phrasal verbs, but the sheer endless combinations of verbs, context and meaning make this a very though nut to crack. Also; Knowble is designed as a supplementary learners aid instead of an alternative language course. That's why we focus on what Knowble does best; improving vocabulary by reading news articles.

This free version of Knowble offers a rudimentary pre-test. We have developed specific versions with better pre-tests for our clients, such as publishers. These versions also include target word lists, specific resources and translations from dictionaries (instead of Google translation used in the free version). In the paid version of Knowble teachers can also view the progress of individual students.

Still, we hope that our free version of Knowble will continue to help people improve their English in a pleasant way.

Keep your feedback coming!
