I heard that the origin of espresso macchiato was so that the bartender knew that a particular coffee in a line of coffees was different – hotter or stronger or decaf – so it was marked – macchiato – with a tiny bit of milk foam. The term has been around for a long time apparently, so some say the milk would not have been textured or foamed, as the term predates espresso machines – but of course even heating milk in a saucepan makes it go a bit foamy. So it was to mark out that coffee, not to alter its taste. Any thoughts? Obviously a latte macchiato is a totally different drink and has resulted in considerable confusion.
Hi I moved into a house that has one sheet of white asbestos fence broken in three used in the garden bed as a plant protector by the old tenants. The land lord is having it removed but as The contractor who first looked at it is taking a week to come out I’m worried about the edges spikey bits hanging off it how dangerous are they for my kids who don’t play in the garden yet but have to walk past it ( two meters away) to get to the car? Also how safe will the garden be once its removed can I plant in the garden bed and can the kids play outside how do I get it ready and safe for them? With thanks Lisa.
PMC (PubMed Central) launched in 2000 as a free archive for full-text biomedical and life sciences journal articles. PMC serves as a digital counterpart to the NLM extensive print journal collection; it is a repository for journal literature deposited by participating publishers, as well as for author manuscripts that have been submitted in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy and similar policies of other research funding agencies. Some PMC journals are also MEDLINE journals. For publishers, there are a number of ways to participate and deposit their content in this archive, explained on the NLM Web pages Add a Journal to PMC and PMC Policies . Journals must be in scope according to the NLM Collection Development Manual . Although free access is a requirement for PMC deposit, publishers and individual authors may continue to hold copyright on the material in PMC and publishers can delay the release of their material in PMC for a short period after publication. There are reciprocal links between the full text in PMC and corresponding citations in PubMed. PubMed citations are created for content not already in the MEDLINE database. Some PMC content, such as book reviews, is not cited in PubMed.
