Dee Dental Paisley – We will be offering Invisalign treatment here at our practice 5 County Place Paisley from November 2019

Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan based on your Invisalign Provider’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little.

Straightening your teeth could have a positive impact on your overall dental health. The aligners are easily removed, so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would to maintain good oral hygiene. And because straighter teeth are less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, investing in a straighter smile now may even minimize the need for costly dental work in the future.

Aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, trimmed to your exact gum line to fit better, and are easy to put in and take out. They’re also less painful than braces.

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time depends on your specific needs and will be decided by your Invisalign Provider.

Essay writing has become the most challenging affair for students. The increasing academic demands and homework that every teacher gives out to their students have overburdened them. Whether they have to write an essay on a simple subject or a bit complex topic, many students find the task overwhelming.

Writing a high-quality and meaningful essay is not easy at all. One should possess critical thinking, researching, and effective writing skills. Students struggling to improve their academic writing skills should learn how to break down each task into convenient parts. It will not only help them in obtaining high grades at the end of the semester but will improve their academic reputation as well.

If you are one of those students who want to enhance their writing abilities, then don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Heeding tips mentioned in the article will help you to draft an effective paper. Be sure to check out this article till the end!


1.    Select a Topic

Sometimes students are assigned with a topic to write a paper on, and sometimes they have to pick the topic of their choice. If you’re not assigned any topic, then you have to do a little extra work. For picking a topic, sit back and calm your mind and define your purpose. Is your essay to persuade or inform? Once you’ve defined your purpose, start by brainstorming and begin to jot down ideas that flow through your mind. Lastly, evaluate your opinions and choose the most interesting and relevant topic out of all.


2.    Create an Outline

To write an effective essay, organize your thoughts. Pen down on a piece of paper what is already in your mind regarding the topic.  Write down all the main ideas separately. This will help you create connections and build links between ideas more visibly. This structure will lay down a foundation for your academic essay. Another approach is to write outlines. Divide your essay into introduction, body, and conclusion. This skeleton will help you write an organized essay. It is the part of writing an essay were students often struggles, and they choose to buy essays online instead of writing themselves.


3.    Create a Thesis Statement

Once you have your structure laid down and main ideas written, it’s time to start writing your essay. Start by writing a thesis statement which defines the purpose of your essay. Keep your main ideas and outline in mind while writing a thesis statement. Your statement will carry both the topic and the main argument of your paper. However, make sure to write it at the beginning of the essay and don’t forget to refer it a few times in the essay.


4.    Write the Body

In the body of your essay, you will explain and describe your topic properly. All the main ideas that you wrote down earlier will become separate sections. You’ll have to follow the same structure for each body paragraph. Start by writing the main idea as your first sentence and then write your supporting ideas to complete the paragraphs.


5.    Write the Introduction

Now that you’ve finished writing your thesis and the body of your essay, you need to write an attention-grabbing introduction that also states the focus of your paper. For making your introduction catchy, you can begin with a famous quote, dialogue, a story, or just a summary of your topic. Whatever you choose, be sure it goes with your thesis statement well.


6.    Write the Conclusion

The conclusion of your essay will sum up overall ideas while delivering a final viewpoint of your topic. Keep your conclusion short up to 3-5 strong lines. Never introduce any new idea or argument at the conclusion. Simply summarize your prior statements. Once you are done writing your conclusion, proofread your draft and bring final changes if needed.







Though student life is considered as the golden period of life, it comes with a lot of challenges as well. It is said that “the roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.“ Indeed it is true! Our today’s challenges prepare us for our future. However, most students don’t come prepared for their college and university and end up being daunted; as a result, they take extra time to adjust to their student phase.

That is fine! Most students go through this phase where they find it difficult to get comfortable, make new friends, and complete their homework. But it is recommended to prepare yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally in order to get through the tough times in a better way. In this article, we’ll take you through some of the common challenges that students often face in college or university life. To learn about them and to prepare yourself, be sure to read this article till the very last word!


1.     Adjustment

Probably the biggest defy that almost everyone  face is to blend into a new life. Yes, we understand that it is a bit daunting affair. Whether you are stepping into college life for the first or you are going back to campus after a long vacation, there will be a duration of adjustment. For students who are just starting their university will find it extra hard, especially when they will be joining the university in another city. There will be a cultural difference, or maybe you’ll experience a little change in the way of teaching. Don’t worry! There is a solution to every problem. All you need to do is to be prepared for such things to happen and face them with confidence. Eventually, you’ll fall in love with this amazing life!


2.     Study

Another reason that can bring soreness into amazing student life is the pressure of ever-changing academic standards. College and university courses require a lot more effort than school classes. The education system has grown so tough that students focus more on getting high grades than learning. For example, the requirement of writing essays and academic papers in the college have made students look for shortcuts. Many students seek help from professional essay writing services to get their papers written by expert writers. If you don’t have enough writing skills, then you can face the same problem as well. But the solution is to contact a reliable and affordable writing service. All you need to do is to send them a message that says do my essay and you’ll get your 100% unique paper written.


3.     Homesickness

If you come under the umbrella of such students who are studying far from home in other cities, then you are more likely to experience homesickness. However, today, it has become much easier to communicate with friends and family that are even living on the other side of the world all thanks to modern means of communication. For students feeling homesick can contact their loved ones anytime and anywhere over the internet.


4.     Depression

Last but probably the most common issue that students of today are going through around the world. Depression has become more common than ever. Today, the competition has grown so tough between students that they are challenged to compete with each other. Moreover, the pressure from parents of obtaining high grades is one of the major causes of depression among the students. It comes highly recommended to seek professional help from students that are dealing with this extreme issue. Value your life over dying!







– Fleet of three Scottish-built BYD ADL Enviro200EV full-electric buses will operate free 24-hour passenger service to airport’s Long-Stay Car Park – 


Glasgow has today (Tuesday, October 8) become the first UK airport to introduce a fleet of zero-emission electric buses to its car park operation. 


The three-strong fleet of all-electric battery buses, which were built in Scotland by Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL), will replace the current diesel fleet used to shuttle passengers between the terminal and the airport’s Long-Stay Car Park.


This is the first time the BYD ADL Enviro200EV model has been operated anywhere in Scotland and its introduction at Glasgow Airport was made possible thanks to a £450,000 Green Bus Fund support grant from Transport Scotland.


Mark Johnston, Glasgow Airport’s Managing Director, said: “We are proud to be the first airport in the UK to incorporate a full-electric bus fleet into our car park operation.


“These state-of-the-art vehicles will play an important role in supporting our continued efforts to create a more sustainable business and will contribute significantly to help further reduce carbon emissions locally at Glasgow Airport.


“The environmental benefits and considerable cost reductions associated with the introduction of these electric vehicles was very attractive. 



“Moving to a full-electric bus operation cuts the carbon emissions associated with passenger travel to and from our car park from 143 tonnes per year to zero, and this significant reduction is further supported by the fact that the airport’s electricity is also supplied via renewable energy.”


The launch of the airport’s new electric fleet coincides with Scotland’s Climate Week 2019. Events are being organised in schools, colleges and workplaces across the country to encourage people to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said: “I’m pleased that the Scottish Government has been able to help fund these new electric buses at Glasgow Airport which will eliminate 143 tonnes of carbon emissions from passenger travel operations.


“The uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles is central to meeting our climate change commitments and our goal of making Scotland’s air quality the best in Europe.


“At the same time, decarbonisation and the global transition towards electric mobility provides real opportunities for sustainable economic growth. We will continue to work to position Scotland at the forefront of this movement and to maximise the economic opportunities afforded through innovation – as demonstrated in this exciting joint project between ADL and BYD Europe.”


The introduction of the new full-electric bus fleet is one of a number of projects introduced to help reduce Glasgow Airport’s carbon footprint. Earlier this year, the airport invested £200,000 to deploy eight of petrol/electric plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 4×4 vehicles across its airfield operations. 


Glasgow Airport, as part of the AGS Airports Ltd group which owns and operates Aberdeen and Southampton airports, also made a commitment to Airports Council International (ACI) Europe’s NetZero2050 this month.


Glasgow joins 203 airports run by more than 47 operators across 24 European countries who have signed the resolution to formally commit to becoming net zero for carbon emissions by 2050.


A joint project between ADL and BYD Europe, the new zero-emission fleet combine BYD’s leading electric driveline and battery technology with Alexander Dennis bodies, which have been specially adapted to suit Glasgow Airport’s operational requirements.  


Charging infrastructure for the three buses has also been installed at the airport’s Long-Stay Car Park and the fleet will be operated by NCP. At 10.8m long, each bus has both front and rear access points, 23 seats, three-tier luggage compartments and includes wheelchair provision.  


Colin Robertson, ADL Chief Executive, said: “Glasgow Airport’s decision to electrify its official car park shuttles shows that battery buses have an important role to play at airports. We are delighted to have used our expertise in adapting buses to specific operational requirements on these environmentally-friendly vehicles. It is great to see Glasgow Airport leading the charge with pure electric buses.”


The world of social media can be intimidating for a small business – especially if using tech brings you out in hives.

It’s a crazy world out there in this whirlwind era of Twitter spats, Insta-controversies and Facebook SNAFUs. Despite this, there are many ways that you can create a social media presence that will boost user engagement, increase awareness of your products and, if you’re lucky, see a positive swell in your profits.

We can’t promise the world on a stick – after all, millions of businesses are competing for the attention of customers on social media and they can’t all be a success – but we can give you a few tips that’ll swing the odds in your favour.

So take a look at these tricks of the trade and see how they can apply to your social media plan.

Which channels to choose?

There are a multitude of social media channels online and they all appeal to a different demographic. So Instagram is for a younger crowd that enjoys images, while Twitter attracts people in their thirties who enjoy spirited debate. Meanwhile, Facebook has given way to an older audience and LinkedIn has maintained its niche as the home of high-flying businesspeople.

Which channels you choose to engage with depends on the type of business you have and the content you intend to create. You can’t be all things to all people, so don’t try to corner a social media channel that doesn’t serve your business needs.

Give yourself a chance

People are used to cons on social media. If they aren’t being spammed by clothing chains that don’t really exist, they’re being assaulted with fake news or false friend requests. The wild west of the internet, while still being regulated, remains alive and well.

So imagine how your business will look if you have three followers while you try to hawk your wares. Clue – it ain’t going to look trustworthy.

It’s for this reason that purchasing a baseline of followers can help give your social media channel authority. Sites like Greedier Social Media can do exactly this, improving your social media presence and adding the element of trust to your business page.

Have personality – but avoid controversy

A cursory glance at the news media will show you a huge number of businesses that’ve been caught with their proverbial pants down on social media. Whether they’ve misused shock tactics to promote themselves or written something downright offensive unintentionally, there are a plethora of businesses who misunderstood the impact of social media backlash on their bottom line.

Obviously you should try to avoid making such a mistake, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a personality online. Banality will guarantee you a low following, so you’ll have to walk a fine line to be subversive without causing offence.

Those are our tips! Can you think of anymore? Then let us know in the comments below!


With the new Scottish National Ice Hockey season only days away, Paisley Pirates supporters are girding their loins, as they look forward to a diet of activity for the next six months or so, combining vocal support for their favourites on the the ice with a programme of off ice events aimed at giving the players and management the maximum support possible as they once again bid for honours.

Chairwoman Marie Cadenhead looked back at activities over the last 6 months of a very long close season and, while declaring herself satisfied with events which tool place, declared that she wants to see supporters become even more involved with the Pirates, one of Scotland’s top amateur teams.

“Every year, the role of the Supporters Club becomes more and more important, as the cost of running an ice hockey team, even an amateur one like us, rises and we, as fans, have to do our bit to keep the Pirates’ ship afloat. In the close season just ended, we appeared at three Summer Gala Days, namely, Barshaw, Renfrew and Ferguslie Park, we had our AGM at the end of May, staged a very successful Meet The Players Night just a few weeks ago, and held a successful raffle thanks to the support we received from Morrison’s Falside Rd, Hannah’s in Johnstone, Chivas and Rangers FC and Celtic FC for raffle prizes, all of which helped ensure that the club had a financially viable close season. We also tool part in a recent Celebrating Renfrewshire event, and all of these are important in keeping the club in the public eye on an ongoing basis.”


“We’re now getting into the serious stuff at long last as in addition to giving the boys all the vocal support we can muster we continue to help with the match night stuff like Chuck a Duck, man some of the table and generally help in keep a smile on the Treasurer’s face, all in the name of supporting the Paisley Pirates. It’s hard work, but we wouldn’t change our job for the world!” 

We are so so happy and grateful to be shortlisted for this award. Nichola and Kristine are astonished that such new business is being considered for such prestigious recognition. This award is sponsored by the paisley daily express…

The wait is finally over for the fans and players of the Paisley Pirates as they take to the ice in competitive action for the first time on Saturday evening when they make the short trip to Kilmarnock to play the local Thunder in a Stewart Robertson cup tie (face off 7.30pm)

The hosts have had a tough start to the season, with their young side taking several heavy defeats in competition in the first few weeks. “We won’t be taking any notice of Thunder’s results so far,” said Head Coach Ian Turley. “As we do against any opponent, we’ll treat Thunder with the utmost respect, and rely upon our own performance to get us off to a good start in a competition from which we failed to qualify last season. Certainly, there are two teams going through from each group this season, but with Murrayfield and North Ayr also in the section it will be no walkover. We have a few new guys making their competitive debut for us, and it will be interesting to see how they perform in the heat of action.”

It will be a busy weekend for Pirates as they’re on the road again on Sunday when they head south to take on a strong-looking Solway Sharks at the Dumfries Ice Bowl. The hosts have joined the SNL while remaining in the Northern Ice Hockey League and player/coach Adam Walker is expecting a tough battle against a side which has recorded some impressive results so far. “It’ll certainly be a tough old night in Dumfries,” he commented. “I anticipate that the Sharks will be occupying a spot at the top end of the league table and we will really have to put in a top-notch performance if we hope to take anything from the game.”

The match faces off at .5.30pm.

“There is a shortage of funding for research into autoimmune diseases and I would like to our bit help make sure there is more funding into the causes and treatment of autoimmune diseases.

“We’re also running a poll just now for people to vote which autoimmune diseases they think needs funding most and we’ll donate whatever we have raised to the top five as voted by the public.”
