I just discovered a link to a great post on searching syntax in Logos 4. It gives a great overview of all the different ways to do searches. Sometimes it hard to remember all of the options and operators you can use – this is a good refresher. Check it out here – http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help#Matching_Case_or_All_Word_Forms
A friend ask me if there was a way to find all forms of a particular Greek work in a book using Logos 4. Rather than try to explain it I thought I would just record a short video to show how to do it.
This is a bit of a different post. Many of you know that I teach a course at the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver on Ministry Technologies. This post is to see which of my current students have been paying attention. If they have, they will be able to find this post and download the Study Guide I have attached here to help them prepare for the Midterm exam they have next week. If they have subscribed to this blog using Google Reader they shouldn’t have any trouble spotting it. Fun huh?
STUDENTS: – If you find this, remember that you may not tell any other students about it directly. You may post a link on Facebook or Twitter to help others find this, but that’s it. Happy studying!
The Pew Internet and American Life Project just released results of a new survey regarding the use of tech devices. While some of this may not be that surprising, it is interesting to see how we love gadgets as a culture.
- 85% of American adults own a cellphone
- Desktop computers are most popular with the 35-65 age group
- 70% of Millennials own a laptop, 54% own a desktop machine
- Almost half of all adults own an iPod or other MP3 player
- 74% of those 18-34 own an iPod or other MP3 player with only 56% of those 35-46 owning one
- 63% of those 18-46 own a game console
- 5% of all adults own an e-reader
- 4% own an iPad or other tablet
Interestingly, 9% of adults polled do not own ANY of the devices listed, but that number jumped to 43% of adults age 75 and older.
Clearly, we are (especially in the younger age groups) a culture that loves our gadgets. I hope that we as Christians, will continue to strive to learn to use these devices to spread the saving message of the cross and strengthen the church throughout this land.
