Essential Tips to Write a Great Essay

Well, we can bet that some people become dentists only because they suck at writing essays. Research papers and essays do invoke a high degree of anxiety and stress in a lot of people. Unfortunately, no matter what class or subject you take in college or high school, you will have to write an essay at some point or another. So, whether you hate them or love them, you can certainly follow a set of these 9 steps to reduce your stress and write fantastic essays.

Analyze what’s being asked

The first and the most important step in writing a phenomenal essay is being able to comprehend what’s being asked. See, your essay can be great in terms of the value it offers. However, if it doesn’t follow the prompt, it would not fetch you good grades. So, either you should seek online essay assignment help, or if you wish to do all the hard work, you can follow these steps.

Now, to understand what’s being asked, break down the prompt in 2 parts.

What is being asked directly?

  • What is the topic of the essay?
  • What is the kind of research required to fully understand and go about this topic?
  • How long should this essay be?

What is being asked indirectly?

  • Is your opinion required or do you have to provide the opinion of the credible sources or facts?
  • How to relate this topic to what’s been taught in the class?

After you have found the answers to all of these questions, you can start constructing your essay.

Draft a thesis statement

Now, you should always start your essay with a powerful thesis statement. This is your guiding statement for the complete paper. Given the prompt, what is it that you want to talk about in the essay? You could keep the thesis statement concise. However, do ensure that you include all the necessary points that you would want to address in this paper. So, as you go about writing the essay, always go back and refer to the thesis statement. This will ensure that you do not stray away from the topic. It is this thesis statement, which will determine whether you get an A or a B.

Create an outline

Next, you need to draft an outline as to what all you’d be including in this paper or essay. It will give you a flow when you are writing a paper. In this outline, you can briefly mention the information that you are planning to include in the paper. The outline will make the entire process quicker. In case all of this seems like a lot of work, you can always get in touch with FineGrades for brilliantly drafted essays, which are sure to get you an A.

Start with the body of the essay

As a general rule of thumb, your essay should always start with the body and not the introduction. In the body, you can form all the ideas and the inclusions and then come back to the introduction to list out all that you have included in the body. In this way, your introduction will be in sync with the body.

Start every paragraph with a topic-related sentence

Now, every paragraph looks better if it has a headline. This headline is the title of the paragraph and would give away what’s included in the paragraph. In case you are unable to write about a particular topic, you can look for its associated course like best online python course on TrumpLearning. There they have teachers who not only help you with your assignment but give you substantial knowledge about a particular topic, making it easier for you to compile your thesis or essay.

Always use credible sources

If your essay has contextual information and quotes in it, it makes it seem credible. These quotes, statistics, and facts are important techniques to support your argument and make your information look more credible. Hence, you should always use credible sources when drafting an essay.

Do not fake it

Your teachers are not dumb. In one overview, they can interpret whether you have understood the topic or not. So, never use fluff to make your essay look longer. Thus, every sentence that you use in your essay should do some value addition to the final output. If it isn’t doing that, remove that sentence from the essay. Trust us when we say this, teachers would prefer a well-written short essay, even if it doesn’t meet the stipulated word length over an essay, which caters to the word length but is 80% fluff. A lot of people face problems with difficult subjects like economics or statistics. So, when they get to write a thesis or an essay of these subjects, they include a few facts and a lot of fluff. In this situation, it is best to use economics or do my homework service, rather than preparing a bad essay.

Conclude it well

Lastly, you have to conclude your essay, and the conclusion has to start by restating the thesis statement. It is your grand chance to tie up all the main points together and summarize them. A good conclusion is one that addresses the primary arguments of each paragraph succinctly.

Final word

Research papers and essays can be a bit of a challenge, but hopefully, these 8 tips do simplify the task for you.

Best Slots To Play During The Warmer Months

With summer well and truly underway and the heat building, many of us automatically think of pursuing an outdoor hobby. But if you fancy staying cool out of the sun and in front of the fan, then here are some seasonal new game to play to keep the summer theme going.

Extra Chili Slot 

Don’t be fooled by the title, Extra Chili slot does not revolve around cold weather instead it’s a game that will leave you hot under the collar. This Mexican chili pepper themed slot is great to play in the summer because of its themes colours and settings. The stars of this slot are the crystal chilies that come in an array of different colours. This Big Time Gaming entry is yet another addition to the megaways slots and the graphics and style closely follow in the footsteps of Bonanza. The most noticeable thing here is the removal of the upper reel that sits across the main reel frame that is a common trait of megaways slots. Instead, here it sits at the bottom of the reels. The free spins bonus round has great potential thanks to multipliers and the 115649 megaways available on the 6 reels. Along with the peppers, you will also find the standard deck of cards symbols as well. Fireworks represent the wild symbol and there are three scatter symbols represented by the letters H, O and T. If you manage to spell the word HOT on the reels, then you will receive 8 free spins. Any other golden scatter symbol containing any of the letters, will add to the free spins during the bonus feature. 

Amazon Queen Slot 

Keeping the hot and humid theme going is Amazon Queen. Here amongst the heat of the rainforest setting you can expect close encounters with snakes, tigers and gorillas. Amazon Queen is a 5-reel 20 payline video slot by WMS. The base game can offer some big wins courtesy of wilds and the most valuable symbol of them all, the silver back gorilla. Other symbols include a tiger, parrot, snake, durian fruit, diamonds, spades, clubs and hearts. The alluring amazon queen herself is the bonus symbol and 3 nets you 10 free spins, 4 gives you 25 spins and 5 throws 100 free spins your way. 

Great Rhino Slot 

The searing heat and sundrenched land of the rhino features heavily in the Great Rhino slot. The sun kissed setting of this Pragmatic Play slot is also home to flamingos, meerkats, crocodiles and big cats. This 5 reel, 20 payline slot also includes a respins streak feature and a free spins bonus round. To activate the free spins feature you need to land 3-tree scatter symbols on the reels. The bonus consists of 10 free spins and during these spins the rhino symbol becomes a wild. The Super Respin feature is triggered if you land 2 or more full stacks of rhino symbols on the reels. If this happens, then you are awarded 3 free spins on a screen displaying nothing but rhinos and blank.

Announcing — #iVoted

 

#iVoted Initiative to Break All Records with Election Night Virtual Concerts

 

The Non-Partisan Effort To Get Out the Vote Projects Over 1,000 Acts Performing Via Webcast

 

(New York) August 6, 2020 Emily White, founding partner of Collective Entertainment and co-founder of #iVoted, which she established along with Mike Luba and Wilco’s Pat Sansone for the 2018 election, is proud to announce their November 3, 2020 Election Night digital concerts. The goal is simple – to get out the vote, particularly for millennials and x and y Gen voters. The list of performers is growing daily with over 225 committed thus far with many notable artists and another 700-900 more acts to be confirmed, making this the largest single night digital concert ever. The list to date can be found at iVotedconcerts.com.

Politics are set aside for this non-partisan initiative. All voters have to do is RSVP with a selfie taken outside their polling place or at home holding their blank voting ballot for access to all the free entertainment they can squeeze into one night. “We don’t know people’s political beliefs – and don’t want to – we just want people civically engaged in the democratic process,” according to White. Fans under 18 can RSVP with a video, letting #iVoted know what election they will be 18 for, and why they’re excited to vote. International fans can RSVP simply to enjoy the talent.

The acts invited to perform were largely determined by statistics provided by Chartmetric’s data, pinpointing the favorite artists of key geographic areas that are vital in the polling process, from swing states to those that reflected low voting numbers for this demographic in the last elections.

#iVoted has attracted a dynamic all-volunteer team from all facets of the entertainment community. Kevin Lyman, founder of the Warped Tour and numerous other mega- successful festivals and tours, is one of the impressive members of the burgeoning non-profit’s board along with Lawrence Peryer ( Lyte, formerly Amazon, Warner Music Group), attorney Joyce Dollinger, Kennita Hickman (Imagine Milwaukee’s Director of Artist Outreach), Kevin Ray (Walk the Moon), Rebecca Kennedy (WNYC), MIT tenured economist Jon Gruber, Kyle Frenette (ex-Bon Iver, 46 for 46 Founder), veteran booking agent Steve Ferguson, and analytics strategist Talia Borodin.

Sponsorships and endorsements are being spearheaded by Kate Truscott, General Manager of the Kevin Lyman Group and Lisa Tenner, President of Tenner & Associates. In fact, 100% of the executive volunteer staff are women and 70% of the diverse #iVoted team are women and non-binary.

White and her co-founders have a long-range view of this project. They began for the 2018 midterm elections for which they provided more than 150 live concerts in 37 states with acts including Billie Eilish and Good Charlotte. The initiative began in swing states and expanded exponentially from there. The digital concerts this year will enable greater national impact. White says, “We want to do this every national election day from now on.”

Will You Trust a New COVID Vaccine?

 

 

There’s a false assumption that a COVID vaccine is the cure to our problems.

Not so fast.

There’s growing concern that *if* and *when* a vaccine becomes available, it might not be as effective as we’re inclined to think.

What if a quarter of the population refuses to get vaccinated? Think that’s unrealistic? Read on.

A few points for discussion:

1. Trump’s recent pronouncements that he’s confident a new vaccine will be available “by the end of this year” are preposterous. Science (infections) doesn’t bow to political pressures nor is it concerned about the outcome of an election. The correct response to the question about a vaccine timeline from a non-scientific source and voice of authority (the President) should be, “it will be ready when we’re convinced it’s effective and it’s safe.” THAT should be the timeline.

2. Being wary of a new COVID vaccine isn’t the same as being anti-VAX, though there’s probably some crossover within this otherwise disparite demographic. Many of us who are strongly *pro-vax* also have (legitimate) concerns about a new drug that might be cutting corners during the research and trial phases.

3. I don’t trust anything that comes from this Administration. Not a word. Trump knows his re-election chances likely hinge on finding a “cure,” so all the stops have been pulled out on normal protocols. While a compelling case can be made that some short cuts do need to be made to get a vaccine out, based on the Trump Administration’s appalling track record of deflection, disastrous predictions, absurd statements, and misplaced priorities, I simply don’t trust the safety of a drug that’s been rushed to market.

4. Vaccine Origins: I am divided on the factor of the source of the prospective vaccine discovery. I would feel somewhat safer if the vaccine came from labs in Europe, where public/private cooperation has been in place for decades and there’s a long history of success. I am uncertain about the safety of a vaccine if it were discovered in China (certainly a possibility). China’s research capabilities rival our own and we better prepare ourselves for the possibility we could be forced to make some decisions. I’m also wary of a vaccine created by the US pharmaceutical industry, which is under enormous pressure from government (overseeing and financing) and is financially incentivized to cut corners to be first to get a drug to market to shaft the competition. I’d be very concerned if any pharma company that releases a vaccine is also given legal indemnification against damages (which I think is very possible).

5. The biggest fear as I understand it (and I am admittedly a layperson with no scientific knowledge) is a possible repeat of the Thalidomide disaster, when 60 years ago thousands of women mostly in the UK took a drug which later resulted in widespread birth defects. That might be an overreaction and fearmongering. But there is some chance that the recklessness of an untested medication rushed to market under intense political pressures could be problematic later on.

Curious to know the public sentiment on this question, I posted a poll on Twitter yesterday, which produced some interesting results. By about a 3:1 margin, most respondents stated they would agree to a vaccine. What this means is — 25 percent of the population say they will not get the vaccine (see my opening comments).

Note that I tinkered with this question just a bit by asking, what if the vaccine were released “this fall.” One presumes that if any vaccine were released under normal trial and testing the trust factor would be much higher.

No Direction Home: Bob Dylan (Documentary Film Review)

 

 

He was a receiver. 

He was possessed. 

He articulated what the rest of us wanted to say, but couldn’t say.

 

Writer’s Note:  No Direction Home:  Bob Dylan — (Duration — 3 hours, 28 mins) is currently available on Netflix.  Allow me to sum up the film-music-biopic documentary in one sentence:

 

Bob Dylan is nostalgia unless you were there and remember, or you know someone who was there and remembers, or you’re related to someone who was there and remembers that time and place before the matrimony of music and poetry and message and purpose that was changed by the lad born “Zimmerman” who appeared to be the most unlikely of poets and prophets, a lyricist not known for the quality of his voice nor revered for his ability to strum the guitar nor blow into a harmonica but who nonetheless shattered all the previous expectations and conventions of celebrity and superstardom and became the incarnate of an entire generation, the relectant recipient of a passed torch, and the shatterer of stereotypes — and all of this, and the man, and the music, and the backstory of how this perfect storm of a miracle in time happened is told in a sprawling nearly 3.5 hour long documentary stoked with rare footage, candid recollections, and (shocker!) arguably the most self-revealing interview ever done with Bob Dylan, who despite hundreds of prior interviews dating back to the start always seemed aloof and hostile to the responsibilties and pressures thrust upon him, who realizes this film might be his cinematic epitaph, a comprehensive collection of untold stories and set-the-record straight pronouncements on many of the singer-songwriter’s most memorable compositions which includes some of the most memorizing stage performances ever on recorded, some drowned out by hecklers, and the gaps in between of pensive introspection and outter expression of the shaggy sage who seemed not so much the origin as the conduit of a new sound, a new voice, a new expression, a new vision, a new aspiration, a new consciousness, a new conviction, a new idea, and new possibilities that music and words and idealoism mattered and were capble of greatness and had the power to end wars and cure racism and end poverty and bring awareness and heal and give hope to the helpless and that music and those words in his genre came not from grand orchestras nor amoed rock bands nor the roar of choirs nor techno wizardry but rather from solitude and the twangy strings of a weathered guitar and the pitch of a voice slightly out of tine and the look of a man who seemed frail and might otherwise be perceived as uncertain but who spoke and sang with the force of a sledgehammer, splintering all that was before and pounding the mantel of a new way of looking at things and thinking about things and doing things and all that’s expressed in this film, which must not be viewed as a look back but a vision forward as something sure to entertain, arouse, and inspire.

No Direction Home: Bob Dylan is an absolute must-see.  I recommend it highly.

Note:  Okay, so that’s three sentences.
