ELT burnout revisited A little more than two years ago, I talked about burnout, particularly the path towards it that I and probably you were on. My ELT:Other ratio stared glaringly in my face, mocking my attempts at having a life outside of language teaching. It’s then that I realised I was definitely on the road to burnout. Now with Shelly Sanchez Terrell’s cycle 4 of the 30 Goals for Educators, and an upcoming Google Hangout I’ll be doing with her about them, it seems like an opportune time to revisit my path and see if things have changed.

Enable “Save As” in OS X Mountain Lion & OS X Mavericks Mac users with OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, and Mountain Lion finally have the option to bring back the much-loved “Save As” feature that was removed from Lion. It’s slightly hidden though, and there’s a few quirks with it, but we’ll show you how to access “Save As” and even better, how to have it always be visible by enabling a reasonable keyboard shortcut to use the feature again with a simple keystroke. This will work on all Macs with OS X Yosemite, OS X Mavericks, and OS X Mountain Lion, leaving Lion to be the odd version out, as versions of Mac OS X prior to that retained Save As from the earliest days of the Mac operating system.

martin-thoburn.com » Install the Apple ProRES codec without Final Cut or ProApps Thanks to the very old forum discussion over at Creative Cow. I was able to install the Apple ProRES codec for quicktime without installing Final Cut X or Final Cut Studio. I’m sorry apple, but I abandoned Final Cut years ago.
