I Made A Linguistics Professor Listen To A Blink-182 Song And Analyze The Accent Blink-182 at the Whiskey in Los Angeles in 1996. (Photo: Daniel D'Auria/WikiCommons CC BY-SA 2.0) Two decades have passed since pop-punk exploded in the American music scene, yet the quintessentially suburban, teen-centric music still seems to bounce around our collective skulls. Of all the elements of the Clinton-era mutation of punk music that embraced skate and surf culture, mild angst, goofiness, and incredibly hooky, catchy music, it's the vocals that we remember.

Descriptors and Your Qualitative Data Analysis – Part 1: The Lingo Blog An intro to those devilish descriptors: It seems that there is often confusion about descriptors – what they are and how to use them in your mixed methods or qualitative data analysis. Descriptors are powerful. They allow you to break out your qualitative work across demographic and other survey data for greater insights. When using descriptors in your qualitative data analysis, in addition to being able to analyze media files, you are able to break out the information that describes the source of your media files to see things from different perspectives and introduce new dimensions to your analysis.

Language Log An important rallying cry and usage distinction made by allies of undocumented workers in the current cultural battle over immigration in the United States is Elie Wiesel's assertion above: "No human being is illegal." In the quote, Wiesel gives examples of the kinds of adjectives that he feels can denote properties of people (fat, skinny, beautiful, right, and wrong). On the other hand, calling a person 'illegal', he says, is a contradiction in terms. Here's a more elaborated statement of the idea, quoted from this website When one refers to an immigrant as an "illegal alien," they are using the term as a noun.

Two reviews of new reference manager ReadCube Today, Digital Science announced an investment in startup Labtiva. And Labtiva released a “community preview” of their reference manager ReadCube. The community preview is a free download for Windows and Mac, and this is the summary of my first impressions. You could write two different reviews about ReadCube. The first version would mention the really slick interface, and the fun you have using the program.

Scrivener “The biggest software advance for writers since the word processor.” —Michael Marshall Smith Grow your ideas in style Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. Evaluating Web Resources - When choosing a web site, you want to think the same way a journalist investigating a source would. By asking questions about the site, using your critical thinking skills, and digging deeper into what the site is all about you help ensure that you are using good-quality, reliable information. That will prevent embarrassing mistakes in class, and get you in the habit for when you go into the working world when mistakes can be worse than embarrassing. Ask yourself:

You can import files from Mendeley and explore some extra features in Quiqqa. by Oct 10

Hi binhpok, thanks for the information, it's very useful. I work at a university and support RefWorks so it's useful for me to find out about all the other services such as Zotero and Qiqqa that are on offer. Thanks to pearltrees I've also just learnt about Citavi. There's so much choice now! by danrholden Jan 26

btw, danrholden, I found qiqqa's annotation tools a tad cumbersome-- especially compared to iPad's iAnnotate. by kbpc172 Jan 25

danrholden, I've started to move away from mendeley-- I found it limiting. I moved to it at a time when it offered better metadata extraction and it was great for managing PDFs. Adding notes to PDFs was pretty good, too, but then I realized that reports of notes was based on 1 PDF at a time. This seems nuts that if I wanted to generate a report of all notes and references based on a search term, I could only do it one PDF at a time. Since Zotero now has a standalone copy (so it works in ANY browser) and plugins like Zotfile (to rename files) and forthcoming Zotpad (for iPad), it might be the winner for me. Two notes: Endnote's annotation tools have improved dramatically, but it might still be cumbersome to get Endnote PDFs into iPad and a new one called ReadCube seems interesting. by kbpc172 Jan 25

I also love this program. I can't say that I've seen too many bugs or found it too slow. Do you know how it compares with Mendeley? by danrholden Jan 25

I love many things about this program- highlighting to note functionality (can't believe no one else has done this in the age of iAnnotate, etc.[correction: more and more programs are doing this- ReadCube, WebNotes, diigo (though it's not a reference manager]). Unfortunately, there are still too many bugs- its cumbersome to use, slow....not worth switching yet. by kbpc172 Jan 25
