However, my experience with reading PDFs on iPad has taught me many things and over the time I came to discover a wide range of great apps to use academic writing on my PDFs. These are particularly apps which you can use to annotate, highlight, add notes, record, and comment on the content of your PDFs. I have compiled these apps in the list below and want you to have a look.

O you who augment your outstanding fame through your mighty
O decus eximium magnis uirtutibus augens,
The longest poem by Catullus (c. 84-54 bc) contains an account of the wedding of the Greek hero Peleus to the sea-goddess Thetis – a key event in mythological history, which led to the birth of the greatest Greek warrior, Achilles, and (thanks to the intervention of Eris with her golden apple) to the Trojan War in which he would win fame. In one part of the work the Parcae (Fates) describe Peleus’ future to him, opening their song with the following address (64.323-6):
At least, this is how the passage appears in the Oxford Classical Text of 1904, edited by Robinson Ellis. In line 324 he prints a modern emendation, clarissime, ‘most famous’; the manuscripts of Catullus read carissime, which would give ‘most dear to his son’, a senseless phrase, since Peleus at the time of this address is childless. Some half a century later, Roger Mynors in his Oxford Classical Text of 1958 – still the standard text of Catullus, and recently published in Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (or read the translation) – printed a different version of the second line, as follows:
This article first appeared on the OUPblog.
To you on this happy day
Emathiae tutamen, Opis carissime nato
So an apparently trivial change of punctuation allows us to understand a passage of ancient poetry, that had frustrated scholars and readers for centuries. No wonder C. J. Fordyce (not a man given to hyperbole), in his commentary on Catullus published by Oxford University Press in 1961 and recently added to Oxford Scholarly Editions Online, called this “the most spectacular contribution of modern scholarship to the interpretation of Catullus”. Or as A. E. Housman said elsewhere – not in real life, but as the character of that name in Sir Tom Stoppard’s The Invention of Love – “There is truth and falsehood in a comma.”
Emathiae tutamen opis, clarissime nato,

Only Oscar Wilde could be quite so frivolous when describing a matter as grave as the punctuation of poetry, something that causes particular grief in our attempts to understand ancient texts. Their writers were not so obliging as to provide their poems with punctuation marks, nor to distinguish between capitals and small letters. If modern editors wanted to recreate the ancient reading experience, we ought to print texts in capitals throughout, with no punctuation or even spaces between the words; but our readers would probably not thank us for doing that. So in our editions we have to make choices about punctuation and the like, based on our understanding of what the texts mean. And if Oscar Wilde could be perplexed by the placing of one of his own commas, we should not be surprised if we sometimes misinterpret the articulation of ancient texts – sometimes with unfortunate results.
“I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.” –Oscar Wilde
Protector of the might of Emathia [i.e. Thessaly], most famous through
Mynors’s new edition retains the text of the manuscripts (carissime) and, for its punctuation, adopts a suggestion made by A. E. Housman in 1915. By placing the comma before opis rather than after it, and by capitalising that word to make it a proper name, Housman restores what must have been Catullus’ intended meaning, and avoids the need to emend the text. Instead of the flabby phrase ‘Protector of the might of Emathia’ (as Housman remarks, “the might of Emathia did not need protecting: it was itself a protection”), we get the tighter ‘Protector of Emathia’. More crucially, the meaning of the second half of the line is now clear. Ops was a Roman goddess identified with Rhea, mother of Jupiter; so Catullus is saying that Peleus was ‘dear to Jupiter’, recreating in Latin the Homeric epithet διίφιλος (Iliad 1.74 etc.). Peleus was indeed dear to the gods, in that he was allowed to marry a goddess; and since Jupiter himself had previously expressed a personal interest in Thetis, it could be said that he showed Peleus particular favour in withdrawing his claim. This very point is made earlier in the poem in another invocation of Peleus, which is recalled by our passage as interpreted by Housman (64.26-7): Thessaliae columen Peleu, cui Iuppiter ipse, | ipse suos diuum genitor concessit amores (“pillar of Thessaly, Peleus, to whom Jupiter himself, the very father of the gods, conceded his beloved”).

To collate all of their product information, the LiveBy team created one very intricate mind map on MindMeister, listing every feature and sub-feature within their product.
Get started with mind mapping
“It’s a collaborative mind map shared with every team member, so they’re able to login and add their ideas for a new feature or sub-feature straight into the map. New ideas are labeled with a light bulb emoticon so the rest of the team can spot them and provide feedback.
This strategy can also be applied to planning growth experiments.
In order to make the most of 2017, it’s important to come up with cohesive strategies that will allow you to prepare for the best, as well as the worst.
Finally, try creating a mind map which will act as a knowledge map for the collective ideas, plans, and knowledge of your team.

Knowledge management expert, Manel Heredero, explains that it’s vitally important for teams to preserve collective company knowledge as it arises, bit by bit.
It’s important that you have a clear vision for your company or organization. It’s equally important that your team are just as clear about these goals too.
To use the mind map, simply sign into MindMeister (or sign up free) and maximize the map via the ‘map actions’ icon. Once maximized, click again on the ‘map actions’ icon and choose to clone the map.
The product mind map acts as both a knowledge map, including all existing company information on the product and a home for new ideas. These ideas can then be discussed within the mind map and followed up in meetings when deciding which ideas to take forward for product improvements or experiments.”
Generating ideas while mind mapping has been found to boost creativity by up to 23%. To help come up with the next big idea, spend your next marketing meeting collaborating on a marketing mind map.
You can also include links to additional resources, such as your editorial calendar or newsletter drip campaign Google Sheet.
LiveBy’s CEO, Cory Scott, explains:
- Which resources you require to achieve these goals
- Which KPIs you’ll be focusing on (Churn, MRR, CMRR)
Clone the above mind map to use as a template for your own marketing strategy, including topics relevant to your business. These could include:
We recently held a marketing team brainstorm here at MeisterLabs to come up with new taglines for social media campaigns. Having shared a collaborative mind map before the meeting, we all added our initial ideas and sources of influence e.g. existing campaigns and imagery we liked. We then projected the mind map during the meeting and each added to it in real-time via our laptops, to come up with text we’re all happy with.
Your SWOT analysis could include potential opportunities, such as which customers you want to be focusing on most and how you plan to tailor your service to these clients. It should also help you to look out for potential problems. Threats and weaknesses might include emerging competitors and existing bottlenecks.

A vital part of your strategy for 2017 will rely on you first establishing the potential strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that your business or organization could be facing this year. In order to prepare, begin 2017 with a SWOT analysis via a mind map.
As a team, try brainstorming potential growth hacks in the form of small but influential changes to your product, service or website.
From there, edit or embellish the topics to make the map suitable for your business, covering topics such as:
Once you’ve brainstormed your first growth ideas, follow the tutorial from MeisterLabs’ head of Growth, in order to turn these experiments into actionable tasks, via the MindMeister and MeisterTask integration.
By having an incredibly intricate map, where all product ideas can be captured and assessed, your team will be able to preserve these thoughts and decide on which to take forward.

As 2017 begins, the new year brings new opportunities, as well as potential new challenges.
1. Plan a 2017 Roadmap
Marketing campaigns and efforts need to be both strategic and timely. In order to get started with your marketing plan for 2017, begin by planning out what you’d like to cover, month by month or quarter by quarter, via a marketing team brainstorm.
To achieve this, try creating a visual roadmap, mapping out your key goals and planned steps onto a strategic mind map. Once you’ve made your mind map, you can share your strategy with employees internally via a shareable link.
So those are our four mind maps for planning out your business in 2017.
The roadmap gave a great overview of company progression. To provide your team with the same direction, make sure to disseminate your roadmap to your team, once created. One recent survey found that on average 74% of employees feel they’re missing out on key company information and news. Ensure your whole team feel in the loop by making your strategy available to all staff, via a cloud-based tool.

5. Application Essays
Alicia McNease Nimonkar is an Accepted advisor and editor specializing in healthcare admissions. Prior to joining Accepted, Alicia worked for five years as Student Advisor at UC Davis’ postbac program where she both evaluated applications and advised students applying successfully to med school and related programs.
It is attractive to be able to include your postbac program or coursework on your application because it indicates that you thrive on teams in the classroom. Taking lab classes or completing research will show teamwork is a strength of yours, if you achieve positive results with high grades or publications.
By evaluating the strength of your AMCAS application, realistically and kindly, you can identify the areas you would like to strengthen. Hopefully this list will provide you with the evaluation criteria to locate areas you can change and improve. By using your energy to become a stronger applicant, you can avoid the self-doubt and uncertainty that often accompanies the decision to apply to medical school. Focus on those areas of the application that you have control over and do your best!
By taking additional time to prepare for medical school, you will be gaining more life experience and therefore approaching your professional education with more maturity and more clearly defined goals.
The additional coursework that you complete—with stellar grades—will provide opportunities for you to request current letters of recommendation from your science instructors. Formal programs also provide these letters.

Welcome to our med school blog post series, A Second Chance at Medical School, in which we’ll explore the A-Z of applying to postbaccalaureate programs. In this post, we’ll start with the topic of WHO – who should apply to postbac programs?
Any student who would like to become a more competitive applicant to medical school can benefit from completing a postbac program or postbaccalaureate coursework. Postbac programs or coursework can help you with completing and/or improving your:
If you need to participate in more activities to strengthen your application, you may consider pursuing clinical experience, expanding your volunteer work interests, or applying to a research program. Most formal postbac programs offer these activities and more.
3. MCAT Scores, if assistance is provided
If you have a low MCAT score, simply retaking the MCAT—with a course—may be the best approach for you—unless you need assistance in other areas as well.
Often, programs provide support in outlining, drafting and finalizing your application materials. Sharing your personal statement draft with the writing center on your college campus can also be helpful, if you do not have the support of a formal program.
Step 1: Introspection – You are the first topic you need to know. After all, the essay will be about you. What do you want to do after your MBA? Why do you want to attend this program? When have you demonstrated the qualities this school appreciates, the qualities that show you belong here? Before you introduce yourself to the adcom, you must make sure that you know yourself well.
