The new Diigo is a major improvement | technology - 68 views

  • The default (see the M?) is called “Meta Search,” which locates search terms both in post titles and annotations. It’s so good that I made the big decision to get rid of tags altogether. Tags weren’t helping me organize my clips very well, and I figure that I can use Diigo lists if I want to curate and save a “best-of” collection. If you don’t like the Meta Search, you can also search by tags or by full text (if you have Diigo Premium.)
  • Diigo has also improved its already-excellent Chrome extension. Seriously, this is one of the most useful extensions out there. Here are some of its features: Save a webpage to Diigo, Annotate a page, Save the page to read later (I prefer Pocket), Take a screenshot (genius), Share the page via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Gmail, or an annotated link. I can’t say enough good things about the extension. No other service allows you to annotate the Internet as smoothly as Diigo does. Once you start highlighting or taking notes, up comes the “Annotation Toolbar,” which lets you change the highlight color and write a sticky note. Or you can reorganize the clip by changing the title, adding tags, and sharing to a list or a group.

美国大学升学作文命题趣谈 - 白露为霜的日志 - 贝壳村 - 7 views

  • You have just completed your 300-page autobiography. Please submit Page 217. (UPenn, 2009)
  • 这篇作文的目的是看学生对自己的人生有没有什么规划。任何大学都希望自己的学生和校友成功,而有雄心有计划的人成功的可能性会更高一些。这个题目并不难写,如果你想当导演,第217页可能是写你在奥斯卡奖颁奖仪式上焦急地等待结果;如果你想从政,第217页可能是写到你作为新科参议员视察飓风袭击后的灾区的情景。写什么都可以,你的想象力是唯一的障碍。如果你说我不知道我想做什么(这也常见),那就编一个,没人会找你算账的。最后别忘记提到你在宾大接受的教育在你成功中起到的作用,这样你就给大学一个录取你的好理由。
  • Using the quotation below as a jumping off point, tell us about an event or experience that helped you define one of your values or changed how you approach the world.     "Some questions cannot be answered./ They become familiar weights in the hand,/ Round stones pulled from the pocket, unyielding and cool."

  • 如果你想知道普林斯顿到底喜欢什么样的人,从这个题目应该可以看出点端倪 – 有思想而且执著的人。这首诗到底在说啥,怎样才能起跳?有些人可能有这样的经历,他看到了一件事,读了一本书,有一个哲学问题等等,以后就一直放不下。因为挥之不去,就变成了他的一个负担,坚硬而冰凉。没有?那你太幸福了,也许你就不该写这个题目。如果有这种经历,你或许能写出一篇很出彩的文章,展示你的思想的深度和敏锐度。要注意的是重点不在这个事件的本身,更重要的是后来呢?它是怎样改变了你的,而你又做了些什么呢?
  • Stanford students possess an intellectual vitality. Reflect on an idea or experience that has been important to your intellectual development.
  • In short, we are looking for the thinking student who has a passion for learning.
  • 斯坦福想看到的是不但有好奇心,能在饭桌上进行热烈的讨论,而且能进一步把它变成一个研究课题的学生。如果学生拥有对扩展自己智能空间的激情,能量,主动性和真正的兴趣,这个题目不难。这些特质一定会某方面展露出来的
