Writing Essays

By ACS Bookshop UK on April 2, 2015 in Writing and Publishing | comments
Although the essay uses objective information, its purpose is generally to develop or argue a main idea (the thesis). A good essay encourages the reader to think about ideas, and provides new insights and perspectives on a subject. It does this mostly by weighing data and the opinions of experts, and building a case for the theory - which may even be that there is no clear answer!

Using Macadamia Nuts

By ACS Bookshop UK on April 2, 2015 in Food and Nutrition | comments
Like cashews, macadamias have a high fat content, making for a decadent treat.  Macadamias are used whole, crushed, or ground, and the oil extracted from macadamias is also popular.

Like many nuts, macadamias are delicious coated in chocolate. As a snack, people also commonly eat them raw, salted, roasted, and honey roasted.
