How to Create an Effective Thesis Statement in 5 Easy Steps
Creating a thesis statement can be a daunting task. It’s one of the most important sentences in your paper, and it needs to be done right. But don’t worry — with these five easy steps, you’ll be able to create an effective thesis statement in no time.
Step 1: Brainstorm Ideas
The first step is to brainstorm ideas for your paper. Think about what you want to say and write down any ideas that come to mind. This will help you narrow down your focus and make it easier to create your thesis statement.
Step 2: Research Your Topic
Once you have some ideas, it’s time to do some research on your topic. Look for sources that support your ideas and provide evidence for the points you want to make. This will help you refine your argument and make it more convincing.
Step 3: Formulate Your Argument
Now that you have done some research, it’s time to formulate your argument. Take the points you want to make and put them into one or two sentences that clearly state what your paper is about. This will be the basis of your thesis statement.
Step 4: Refine Your Thesis Statement
Once you have formulated your argument, it’s time to refine your thesis statement. Make sure that it is clear, concise, and specific. It should also be arguable so that readers can disagree with it if they choose.
Step 5: Test Your Thesis Statement
The last step is to test your thesis statement. Does it accurately reflect the points you want to make? Is it clear and concise? Does it make an arguable point? If not, go back and refine it until it meets all of these criteria.
Creating an effective thesis statement doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With these five easy steps, you can create a strong thesis statement in no time at all.

Things about the Lancia Thesis.
The Lancia Thesis is an Executive Car produced by Italian automaker Lancia between 2001 and 2009. The Thesis is made in Turin, Italy. The Thesis got it’s looks from Lancia Diálogos concept Car. Thesis was desinged by Michael Vernon Robinson.
Engines: 2.0 i5 Turbo 20V 182hp 2.4 i5 20V 170hp 3.0 V6 24V 212hp 3.2 V6 24V 230hp 2.4 i5 10V JTD 150hp 2.4 i5 Multijet 173hp
You can get it with manual or automatic.
Stand out from the crowd, with a dash of Italian style
On the stylistic front, the Lancia Thesis is marked by an emotional elegance that immediately rejects rationalism and visual sparseness in favour of a large, tall grille and diamond-shaped headlamps. The headlamps, separated by the grille, are built into sculpted, shapely wings (the dip between bonnet and side is a nod to cars of the Thirties and Forties).
The result is a sculpted yet integrated front end without the normal protruding bumpers and the consequent overhang from the car body that divides the front into ‘above’ and ‘below’. The imposing, distinctive motif is destined from now on to become an obligatory reference point, a new family look for Lancia designers to follow.
The Lancia Thesis side also features clean, uncluttered form. The side line starts from the front wing and runs unbroken along the car’s waistline from headlamp to tail-light. It helps reinforce the limousine effect by lengthening the car. This view gives a better idea of the car’s long wheelbase (2.80 metres) and generous dimensions (4.88 metres in length and 1.83 in width), essential features when plenty of interior passenger space is required.
The car’s well-proportioned and striking rear end features an integral bumper that leaves room for vertical body traits. Most important of these are the Flaminia-like fins that set off the subtle and innovative led tail-lights to perfection. By day, these look like two understated chrome decorations; by night they are red and orange stripes that make the car unique and immediately recognisable even on the motorway.
The Lancia Thesis passenger compartment is luxurious, roomy and protective. The resulting space provides a most relaxing setting for passengers, whose knees encounter only soft surfaces covered in luxurious materials. A big central column under the facia on the middle seems to support and divide the two front seats, keeping them apart to leave room for a high, wide arm rest. This means that both front occupants can use the armrest simultaneously without getting in each other’s way.
The technological brain of the Thesis is also housed in the same place: a seven-inch colour screen flanked on either side by switches for direct access to the various menus and completed underneath by a row of reconfigurable keys.
The Lancia Thesis seats also represent the current state of the art in terms of comfort and ergonomics because we solicited the help of Professor Dal Monte, the internationally-renowned physiologist. The front seats feature rounded, soft shapes that ensure maximum comfort and the aesthetic appeal of a luxury environment. Double, riveted seams add a touch of craftsmanship and elegance, while saddle-shaped head-restraints are unmistakably Italian in style. In the Comfort version, the Lancia Thesis front seats are fully electrically-adjustable and also offer intriguing and revolutionary functions such as ventilation, heating, adaptivity and massage. Rear seat passengers will also enjoy all the comfort and gratifying well-being of their own living rooms. The new Lancia flagship offers one of the best rear passenger room ratings in the segment.
A space is also reserved for customers who do not drive their Thesis themselves and must be able to travel with sufficient style and dignity in the rear. Hence the need for individual air outlets and the possibility of choosing an air temperature and flow that may be different from that imposed at the front. A big fold-way armrest in the middle of the back seat can house a remote control that is used to adjust the TV and Hi-Fi system.
The top-quality materials include leather, ultra-soft Poltrona Frau leather, Alcantara and wool, an unusual trim material that brings to mind the famous Lancia cloth trim of the past. These cover the seats and a central band that encircles the passenger compartment without a break. The quality of this trim is set off to perfection by an understated insert made out of wood: an open-pored untreated mahogany in which the natural grain is apparent. Lastly, the central console and tunnel are made out of pressure cast magnesium.
The result is an environment made out of top-quality, warm, exclusive materials - an emotionally involving place where top-quality materials have been chosen for their tactile and acoustic qualities to create a multisensorial whole that represents the final frontier of the Lancia world.
The concept of comfort has been superseded by that of well-being, in the sense of mental and physical gratification. When aboard the Lancia Thesis, well-being is truly multisensorial, because the air and sound (as well as the light) always reach occupants in an indirect manner without ever being over-invasive. Air is diffused slowly from a broad band of micropores located in front of the front passenger. Sound comes from the 11 speakers that form part of the ultra-sophisticated Bose® Hi-Fi system.
On-board instruments and controls are naturally analogue and feature large, round, clear, 3-D faces with numbers that apparently float in space (the reference is to the Aurelia and the Flaminia, two cars that play an important role in brand history). One glance provides all the information required. When the lights come on, the dashboard combines the simplicity of the past with ultra-new electroluminescent technology that makes the instruments easier to read by setting them against a soft blue background. Similar care has gone into the courtesy lights that offer functionality - with spot lights that come on and light a specific area so that passengers can read or work - and also an indirect, diffuse light that adds three-dimensionality and makes the interior look more pleasing by night.

That’s all, have a nice day :)
Looks like a happy face
Literally everything is better with a cream coloured interior
Just asking out of interest,but what is tue thing tjat makes you love italian cars so much? I like them too,but just asking
Passion, style, cool, beautiful Italy my favorite holiday destination.
I want one I rember top gear talked about this car in there episode when they were talking about cars they don’t get in the uk
Did they like it?
If only they were old enough to import
I quite like the Thesis… Not a very good looking car, but I quite like it
Funfact: The super slim, white tail lights from the Thesis have been used by Morgan on the Aeromax. Gorgeous car! Until it breaks…
I always liked the Thesis.
I owned Thesis 5 years ago… It was a bit of a lemon car… mileage probably around 300.000… With V6 running perfectly after 2 years I sold the car… and when I was searching whatmy next car Will be I ended up thinking that Thesis is Just one class above the New luxury cars… So I bought a 2,4 jtd in mint cindition…it is absolutely great car, which gets under your skin… so refine and beautiful, stupid people Just dont get it! And thats fine, because it s cheap… But very few in good shape are on the market now… Very rare car!
Yeah the Thesis is something else compared to the normal and common Germans, hopefully i’ll get one before the prices rise. The Thesis really has some future classic potential. Only about 3000 were made with the lovely 3.0 litre Busso V6 engine if i remember correctly.

Review: Clarkson reviews the most popular car in Japan, the Nissan Cube, and generally makes fun of its styling, poor performance and handling. He finds it to be a good “tool” in that it is very spacious and practical for the money, but says that “it’s got the worst automatic gearbox EVER in the whole world” which, coupled with weak power and weird, emotionless and asymmetrical styling, make it unworthy of importing.
Review: May drives a Jaguar XJS modernised by Knowles-Wilkins Engineering that, freed of a multitude of low-grade parts, actually works as a coherent and enjoyable sports tourer, unlike the poorly built originals.
Review: Hammond looks at the Cadillac CTS, which is not available in Britain. He tests it on some winding roads, referring to “corners: an American car’s natural enemy”. The results are favourable (as it can now, literally, “drive you around the bend” as opposed to the previous more figurative situation) but Clarkson disagrees, saying simply, “Cadillacs are for pimps and pensioners.”
Okay No Way: Hammond and Clarkson introduce a new feature. There are two dustbins – a red one marked with No Way and a green one marked with Okay. Hammond and Clarkson show pictures of cars that are not available in the UK. Cars that the two think should come to Britain go in Okay and cars that the two do not want in Britain go in No Way.
Hammond thinks that the Pontiac Solstice should come to Britain, but Clarkson puts it in No Way. Jeremy puts the Pontiac Aztek in No Way within three seconds. Richard puts the Hummer H2 in Okay. Richard thinks that the Ford Mustang should go in Okay, but Jeremy puts it in no way. Once again, Richard thinks that the Chevrolet SSR is Okay, but Jeremy puts it in No Way, saying that it (the SSR) is just a purple convertible pick-up truck. Richard puts the Lancia Thesis in No Way, and finally, Richard puts the Renault Logan in Okay, saying that it is a car – just a car – no stereo, electric windows, anything like that.
Main review: Clarkson reviews the Renault Clio 182. He likes it even though he considers it unrefined, cheap and unsafe. They conclude that it is like a puppy dog – just plain fun, despite having no manners. It scores a 1.33.8.
Challenge: Hammond investigates: “Could you run your car on poo?” (or more accurately, LPG made from faecal biomass, with human and bovine waste challenging commercial fossil-fuel LPG). The answer is yes, but the savings are not worth it – even after considering the money also to be made from milking the cows.
Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Terry Wogan sets a very slow time of 2:03.4 (credited as 2.04), only beating Richard Whitely.

I’ve been looking for a track from the Nissan cube review for a long time. Both Shazam and y’all had it listed as Nissan Cube Review:
01:32 – 01:56 – Gert Wilden – Bordello Bedlam
I couldn’t find it anywhere on the net except here:
Apparently Bordello Bedlam is the alternate title for the song Juggling Cowboy. Once I had that name I was able to find the track on youtube:
Love your site and thank you.
