<br>Have you ever believed in a miracle, well a 13 year old has experienced one.
 +
<br>As a kid, he hanged out with his friend at the friend’s house as they rode a buggy.
 +
<br>However, little did he know that the friend pressed on the brakes to stop as Trenton flew out the buggy striking his head.
 +
<br>Trenton was rushed to a USA Medical Center and found out he had seven major skull fractures.
 +
<br>Yet, that wasn’t it since the doctor said they didn’t know if they could preform surgery to heal his injuries.
 +
<br>So the parents were depressed but convinced to sign a paper to donate his organs to other patients in need before he passes away.
 +
<br>However, a miracle happens to Trenton as he regains consciousness and woke up.
 +
<br>Luckily, Trenton was patched up and was okay just in time before the doctor took out his organs for donations.

POLICE OFFICERS
 +
<br>The police officer is a job that requires strict and orderly personal. (As a police officer, the job entails that the officer should be strict and orderly.)
 +
*** I rewrote this sentence to make it flow smoother. "The police officer is a job..." is not grammatically correct, so I changed it to "As a police officer the job entails...". I also changed the ending of the sentence how that the officers are required to be strict and orderly, there is no use of the personal.
 +
<br>Being a police officer is to keep order and to resolve crimes. ( Some tasks of being a police officer include keeping order and resolving crimes.)
 +
*** The two items you listed are not the only tasks a police officer must do. I changed it to "Some tasks of being a police officer..."
 +
<br>Also, it is a police officer's job to teach civilians to get along and not to harm anyone.
 +
*** I changed their to police officer, to avoid having a vague sense.
 +
<br>Not only that, a responsibility police officer's carry, is that they must be aware at all times.
 +
*** I changed they to police officer's to avoid having a vague pronoun. You can leave the second they because you have already included the subject in the first part of the sentence. I also added a comma after carry, so there would be an adequate break in the sentence to make it flow smoother.
 +
<br>Awareness is important, because danger, crime, or trouble can be lurking and hiding, just around the corner.
 +
*** I changed this to awareness is important. I made this change to avoid having the vague pronoun again and to have a description of what the sentence will be about, before the list. I also added a set of commas to make the sentence flow smoother and have appropriate breaks in the sentence.
 +
<br>Lastly, a police officers should be healthy in physical prowess; as this will come in handy, while resolving any problems.
 +
*** For a police officer to be healthy is not a burden but recommended for them to be physically healthy; so I removed the phrase. I also added semicolons and commas to break up the sentence and prevent it from being a fragment.
 +
<br>In conclusion, being a police officer is a job that requires certain requirements and a very important job to the community.
 +
*** I changed and removed two prepositions to make the sentence smoother. You also forgot to add a period at the end of the sentence. Always remember to use your punctuation.
 +
*** This is more of a list of things you may know about police officer's, it does not seem like an article summary. I recommend rewriting based off an article.

POISON IS KILLING ANIMALS IN AFRICA
 +
<br>Poison is a major issue for animals in Africa.
 +
<br>A common way to kill animals is to use a poison projectile.
 +
<br>Although this benefits us, it damages other animals.
 +
*** There is no need of the word "only", there could be other ways to damage animals.
 +
<br>Mentioned in the article, a lion died, when it ate the carcass of a dead animal killed by a poison dart.
 +
*** I changed for example to mentioned in the article, to show a more direct example. I also added a comma into the sentence to break up the sentence.
 +
<br>The poison in the carcass then killed the lion.
 +
*** I added the word then in to make the sentence flow smoother and to show the progression of the events.
 +
<br>Thus, the use of the poison projectiles are causing damage to ecosystems in Africa.
 +
*** I rearranged some of the word order at the end of the sentence to have the sentence flow smoother. I changed it to damage to ecosystems in Africa.

<br> Fully Edited Article Summary:
 +
 
 +
ANIMALS ARE STARTING TO DISAPPEAR
 +
    <br>Animal sources in tropical forests are getting scarce, due to the forest starting to disappear.
 +
*** We would start changing this topic sentence, by eliminating animal sources. Animal sources would be used to describe animals that would be eaten. The phrase could possibly be changed to "Different species of animals." We also could break this topic sentence into two sentences. We could break the sentence after "scarce." The next sentence could be written as: "These different species of animals are starting to be scarce because of the disappearing rain forests.
 +
<br>They face human abuse such as industry, pollution, and the environmental abuse such as: droughts and heatwaves.
 +
*** You have written a run on sentence. Specify what "they" are. You could list the possible abuses together, to have the sentence flow better. I.E. The animals face different types of abuse, such as: human, industry, pollution, and environmental abuse. We could move the examples of the environmental abuses into the next sentence.
 +
<br>Also, due to these conditions, animals that once were thriving can become scarce in less than a decade.
 +
*** This sentence that you wrote is more of a concluding sentence. As I mentioned in my correction in the sentence above, we could move those examples down. To have a complete sentence we can also combine the sentence below. So a sentence that could work would be: Conciding with the different types of abuse, are other negative factors such as: droughts, heatwaves, humidity, and amount of rain.
 +
<br>Not only that, the humidity of the tropics impact the rain in major agricultural places.
 +
*** For this fact sentence, relook at the article and insert a new fact. You could include the factor that the animals could disappear within a decade. (Based off the sentence you wrote above.)
 +
**** Based off the format Mr. Steve has presented, you need four fact sentences. You have included only three, so include one more.
 +
<br>Thus, as the forest slowly disappears, these precious animals are starting to die out.
 +
*** I made some minor changes to this sentence. I changed disappear to disappears, to keep the verb tense appropriate. I changed "inhabitants" to these precious animals. Inhabitants is not the best word choice for the sentence, instead I followed the format with animals and just added the adjective precious, to give the sentence more depth. And I changed start to starting to keep the verb tense appropriate.

MARS IS COMING FOR US
 +
<br>————————————
 +
<br>This year, Mars will be the closest it has been in the last 15 years.
 +
*** To make the topic sentence stronger, add what Mars will be closest to.
 +
<br>It will enter in a vicinity of 25 million miles from Earth.
 +
*** Refrain from using "it", define what it is. I also made the correction of capitalizing Earth. You capitalize Earth when Earth is discussed as a celestial body.
 +
<br>People believed that dark crepes on Mars were canals made by extraterrestrial creatures.
 +
*** After reviewing your article source, I did not see anything about crepes. Crepes is a type of food. Did you perhaps mean craters?
 +
<br>However, this was quickly discarded as everyone else did not see such creates.
 +
*** Explain how this sentence would relate to the proximity Mars is to Earth.
 +
*** MISSING one more fact sentence!
 +
<br>Thus, extraterrestrial life was once thought to be on Mars, but was proven that there wasn’t.
 +
*** Concluding sentence does not relate to the topic sentence. Please rewrite.

WILD FIRES
 +
<br>—————-
 +
<br>Wildfires have benefits and disadvantages for the ecosystem.
 +
<br>According to the article, the wildfires can benefit predators such as: bears, raccoons, and raptors.
 +
*** A better way to start of the sentence would be according to the article instead for example. I also corrected the colon, where it follows such as, then space, then concluding with the examples. After reviewing the article, foxes was the not the example included, so I changed it to the example listed in the article, raccoons.
 +
<br>Although, the Australian fires may harm animals like the koala, as they can not move fast, so as they climb trees, it leaves them stuck.
 +
*** I added Australian to the fires, so there is another adjective and gives a better addition to the sentence. I also changed leaved it leaves, so it works grammatically with the sentence.
 +
<br>Not only, the fire may burn certain parts of the forest, but may result in the forest becoming more rich.
 +
*** Changed it to not only and but may result to have a better flow of the sentence.
 +
*** Add another fact sentence, refer back to the format.
 +
<br>Thus, wildfires benefit and damage the ecosystem.
 +
*** I changed yet to and to have the right coordinating conjunctions.

ILLEGAL TIGER TRADE
 +
———————————
 +
<br>There has been and will continue to be, illegal tiger trade in Southeast Asia.
 +
*** With illegal tiger trade, it has not only occurred in the past but continues to happen in the present. So I changed the sentence to implement that. I also removed the word "by", there was no need for the word. It flowed smoothly enough with "in Southeast Asia."
 +
<br> A woman had a secret door in her living room wall, the secret door led to 3 white tigers in a cage.
 +
*** I changed the to her, this allows it to be more specific and it is her living room. The door physically can not contain the 3 white tigers, so I changed it to "the secret door led to."
 +
<br>The host offered two visitors a tiger, where they pay money per kilogram.
 +
*** I changed the to a to keep in the articles in check. I also reworded the last part of the sentence to make it flow smoother.
 +
<br>Those visitors were actually secret investigators; they recorded video evidence of the tiger, and the host was arrested.
 +
*** I removed secretly, you had secret twice in a single phrase.
 +
***Refer to the format, you are missing TWO sentences.

YOU WILL SLEEP NO MATTER WHAT

<br>To sleep, your brain must be slowed down.
 +
<br>A little known fact is, if you have thoughts, it  delays you from sleeping.
 +
<br>Finally, an efficient way to fall asleep, is to think about non-stressing ideas while you are trying to sleep.
 +
*** Before a word that starts with a vowel, it should have an as the article before it.

<br>Thus, to sleep, you must think non-stressful thoughts instead of stressful ones.

Also, due to its weight and short wings, it is not able to fly. However, while the ostrich can’t fly, it can run and clock up to 60 mph. Thus, the ostrich is a bird, where it is not able to fly, yet it still can move faster than some birds by running.

Have you ever believed in a miracle, well a 13 year old has experienced one.
As a kid, he hanged out with his friend at the friend’s house as they rode a buggy.
However, little did he know that the friend pressed on the brakes to stop as Trenton flew out the buggy striking his head.
Trenton was rushed to a USA Medical Center and found out he had seven major skull fractures.
Yet, that wasn’t it since the doctor said they didn’t know if they could preform surgery to heal his injuries.
So the parents were depressed but convinced to sign a paper to donate his organs to other patients in need before he passes away.
However, a miracle happens to Trenton as he regains consciousness and woke up.
Luckily, Trenton was patched up and was okay just in time before the doctor took out his organs for donations.

POLICE OFFICERS
The police officer is a job that requires strict and orderly personal. (As a police officer, the job entails that the officer should be strict and orderly.)

      • I rewrote this sentence to make it flow smoother. "The police officer is a job..." is not grammatically correct, so I changed it to "As a police officer the job entails...". I also changed the ending of the sentence how that the officers are required to be strict and orderly, there is no use of the personal.


Being a police officer is to keep order and to resolve crimes. ( Some tasks of being a police officer include keeping order and resolving crimes.)

      • The two items you listed are not the only tasks a police officer must do. I changed it to "Some tasks of being a police officer..."


Also, it is a police officer's job to teach civilians to get along and not to harm anyone.

      • I changed their to police officer, to avoid having a vague sense.


Not only that, a responsibility police officer's carry, is that they must be aware at all times.

      • I changed they to police officer's to avoid having a vague pronoun. You can leave the second they because you have already included the subject in the first part of the sentence. I also added a comma after carry, so there would be an adequate break in the sentence to make it flow smoother.


Awareness is important, because danger, crime, or trouble can be lurking and hiding, just around the corner.

      • I changed this to awareness is important. I made this change to avoid having the vague pronoun again and to have a description of what the sentence will be about, before the list. I also added a set of commas to make the sentence flow smoother and have appropriate breaks in the sentence.


Lastly, a police officers should be healthy in physical prowess; as this will come in handy, while resolving any problems.

      • For a police officer to be healthy is not a burden but recommended for them to be physically healthy; so I removed the phrase. I also added semicolons and commas to break up the sentence and prevent it from being a fragment.


In conclusion, being a police officer is a job that requires certain requirements and a very important job to the community.

      • I changed and removed two prepositions to make the sentence smoother. You also forgot to add a period at the end of the sentence. Always remember to use your punctuation.
      • This is more of a list of things you may know about police officer's, it does not seem like an article summary. I recommend rewriting based off an article.

POISON IS KILLING ANIMALS IN AFRICA
Poison is a major issue for animals in Africa.
A common way to kill animals is to use a poison projectile.
Although this benefits us, it damages other animals.

      • There is no need of the word "only", there could be other ways to damage animals.


Mentioned in the article, a lion died, when it ate the carcass of a dead animal killed by a poison dart.

      • I changed for example to mentioned in the article, to show a more direct example. I also added a comma into the sentence to break up the sentence.


The poison in the carcass then killed the lion.

      • I added the word then in to make the sentence flow smoother and to show the progression of the events.


Thus, the use of the poison projectiles are causing damage to ecosystems in Africa.

      • I rearranged some of the word order at the end of the sentence to have the sentence flow smoother. I changed it to damage to ecosystems in Africa.

ANIMALS ARE STARTING TO DISAPPEAR

    
Animal sources in tropical forests are getting scarce, due to the forest starting to disappear.
      • We would start changing this topic sentence, by eliminating animal sources. Animal sources would be used to describe animals that would be eaten. The phrase could possibly be changed to "Different species of animals." We also could break this topic sentence into two sentences. We could break the sentence after "scarce." The next sentence could be written as: "These different species of animals are starting to be scarce because of the disappearing rain forests.


They face human abuse such as industry, pollution, and the environmental abuse such as: droughts and heatwaves.

      • You have written a run on sentence. Specify what "they" are. You could list the possible abuses together, to have the sentence flow better. I.E. The animals face different types of abuse, such as: human, industry, pollution, and environmental abuse. We could move the examples of the environmental abuses into the next sentence.


Also, due to these conditions, animals that once were thriving can become scarce in less than a decade.

      • This sentence that you wrote is more of a concluding sentence. As I mentioned in my correction in the sentence above, we could move those examples down. To have a complete sentence we can also combine the sentence below. So a sentence that could work would be: Conciding with the different types of abuse, are other negative factors such as: droughts, heatwaves, humidity, and amount of rain.


Not only that, the humidity of the tropics impact the rain in major agricultural places.

      • For this fact sentence, relook at the article and insert a new fact. You could include the factor that the animals could disappear within a decade. (Based off the sentence you wrote above.)
        • Based off the format Mr. Steve has presented, you need four fact sentences. You have included only three, so include one more.


Thus, as the forest slowly disappears, these precious animals are starting to die out.

      • I made some minor changes to this sentence. I changed disappear to disappears, to keep the verb tense appropriate. I changed "inhabitants" to these precious animals. Inhabitants is not the best word choice for the sentence, instead I followed the format with animals and just added the adjective precious, to give the sentence more depth. And I changed start to starting to keep the verb tense appropriate.

MARS IS COMING FOR US
————————————
This year, Mars will be the closest it has been in the last 15 years.

      • To make the topic sentence stronger, add what Mars will be closest to.


It will enter in a vicinity of 25 million miles from Earth.

      • Refrain from using "it", define what it is. I also made the correction of capitalizing Earth. You capitalize Earth when Earth is discussed as a celestial body.


People believed that dark crepes on Mars were canals made by extraterrestrial creatures.

      • After reviewing your article source, I did not see anything about crepes. Crepes is a type of food. Did you perhaps mean craters?


However, this was quickly discarded as everyone else did not see such creates.

      • Explain how this sentence would relate to the proximity Mars is to Earth.
      • MISSING one more fact sentence!


Thus, extraterrestrial life was once thought to be on Mars, but was proven that there wasn’t.

      • Concluding sentence does not relate to the topic sentence. Please rewrite.

WILD FIRES
—————-
Wildfires have benefits and disadvantages for the ecosystem.
According to the article, the wildfires can benefit predators such as: bears, raccoons, and raptors.

      • A better way to start of the sentence would be according to the article instead for example. I also corrected the colon, where it follows such as, then space, then concluding with the examples. After reviewing the article, foxes was the not the example included, so I changed it to the example listed in the article, raccoons.


Although, the Australian fires may harm animals like the koala, as they can not move fast, so as they climb trees, it leaves them stuck.

      • I added Australian to the fires, so there is another adjective and gives a better addition to the sentence. I also changed leaved it leaves, so it works grammatically with the sentence.


Not only, the fire may burn certain parts of the forest, but may result in the forest becoming more rich.

      • Changed it to not only and but may result to have a better flow of the sentence.
      • Add another fact sentence, refer back to the format.


Thus, wildfires benefit and damage the ecosystem.

      • I changed yet to and to have the right coordinating conjunctions.

ILLEGAL TIGER TRADE

———————————
There has been and will continue to be, illegal tiger trade in Southeast Asia.

      • With illegal tiger trade, it has not only occurred in the past but continues to happen in the present. So I changed the sentence to implement that. I also removed the word "by", there was no need for the word. It flowed smoothly enough with "in Southeast Asia."


A woman had a secret door in her living room wall, the secret door led to 3 white tigers in a cage.

      • I changed the to her, this allows it to be more specific and it is her living room. The door physically can not contain the 3 white tigers, so I changed it to "the secret door led to."


The host offered two visitors a tiger, where they pay money per kilogram.

      • I changed the to a to keep in the articles in check. I also reworded the last part of the sentence to make it flow smoother.


Those visitors were actually secret investigators; they recorded video evidence of the tiger, and the host was arrested.

      • I removed secretly, you had secret twice in a single phrase.
      • Refer to the format, you are missing TWO sentences.

YOU WILL SLEEP NO MATTER WHAT


No matter your determination, you will succumb to the need of sleep.
To sleep, your brain must be slowed down.
A little known fact is, if you have thoughts, it delays you from sleeping.
Finally, an efficient way to fall asleep, is to think about non-stressing ideas while you are trying to sleep.

      • Before a word that starts with a vowel, it should have an as the article before it.


Thus, to sleep, you must think non-stressful thoughts instead of stressful ones.

      • The sentences after your topic sentence do not relate to the topic sentence. Please rewrite and add one more topic sentence.

Dark matter is a dangerous type of matter that 80% of the universe is made of and can end the universe. There are 3 types of dark matter. If dark matter has a value of -1, the universe will collapse on itself and squish all the galaxies into a smaller area, then a supermassive black hole will suck up all the planets and explode from the massive amount of mass.If the dark matter had a value more than 1, the universe will stop expanding(dark matter multiplies) and will densify all other matter, eventually, the universe will explode. If dark matter's value is 0, the universe will keep expanding and we will live peacefully. Thus, the world will most likely end due to dark matter.

The multiverse is a universe with many universes inside of it and may or not be a theory that may or not be true. After the big bang, the light residue was left everywhere and has a temperature of -270 degrees Celsius or -470 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, in the light residue, scientists discovered an odd spot; this odd spot has a temperature that is slightly warmer than the average light residue. Not only that, many scientists and philosophers tried to settle on theories, but the most likely theory was that another universe may have collided with our universe. Thus, the theory of the multiverse may be true as scientific research has to lead to many conditions, resulting in the most likely theory...the multiverse.






The third eye is a fearsome and fearless achievement with its own risks. The third eye is an invisible and spiritual eye between the eyebrows awakened from meditation. Also, the third eye has wondrous abilities, such as: seeing clearly when blindfolded, psychic abilities, and more. Although, opening the third eye has its own risks as well. For example, when you open the third eye, you can see into other dimensions and see monsters/illusions. This may cause mental and spiritual trauma. In conclusion, the third eye is a legendary ability to unlock but has many negative aspects and traits about it.






The multiverse is the philosophical theory that our universe resides in an endless group of other universes, which may be possible as there are many theories. One theory explains that there are infinite universes next to each other like in a "giant patchwork quilt of the universes. Another theory called the "bubble universes" explains that our universe is in an inflating bubble with many other inflating bubbles. Also, another theory is that the universes are parallel, which explains that other universes are in different "slabs" that may bang into each other and cause another big bang. Thus, the multiverse is a theoretical idea which may be possible and will never be answered.






For many years, scientists and astronomers speculated a planet beyond Neptune, and the discovery of Pluto was discarded and not considered a planet. There have been speculations that a planet, comet, or asteroid will crash into to Earth, killing off humanity, but no possibilities as such have appeared, until now. This planet is called planet x, which is a Neptune-sized planet that lingers outside of the orbit of Pluto. Every few hundred years, the planet comes close to Earth, the last being 100000 miles from the Earth. The year before that was 120000 miles from Earth. Many people believe that planet x will crash into Earth and kill off humanity. This mystery can only be concluded n the future.






In martial arts, there is a secret technique to kick harder and takes less damage. This technique is called bone remodeling. What happens on impact of a bone and a hard object with 110 lbs of pound of force is the edges of the bone get slightly fractured. It is called micro fractures and cells called osteoblasts send calcium to repair the damage. When the bone gets shattered, the bone heals and makes it harder, denser, and more durable. Thus, bone remodeling is a secret techniques that not many people know about.






There are many theories about the universe from the multiverse to parallel dimensions. For example, the multiverse, one if the most popular theories, is the belief that there are multiple universes. Not only that, a parallel dimension theory is that multiple dimensions are stacked on top of each other, but they vibrate at different frequencies. Finally, another theory is that the Big Bang wasn’t the first Big Bang. Thus, the universe has many theories but none of them have yet to be proven.

The only planet that appears to have liquid water in the solar system was Earth, but we were so wrong. When NASA sent a drone for exploration to Mars, they discovered that there was once water in Mars. In the samples they collected, they found ice within the rocks with living organisms and germs. They suspect that the water on Mars can be connected to the mysterious craters found on Mars.

Birds are stereotypically expected to fly, yet an ostrich defies those expectations. The ostrich is a peculiar bird that doesn’t have the ability to fly. Also, due to its weight and short wings, it is not able to fly. However, while the ostrich can’t fly, it can run and clock up to 60 mph. Thus, the ostrich is a bird, where it is not able to fly, yet it still can move faster than some birds by running.

Scientist have discovered that one of Jupiter’s moons can sustain life on Earth. It ya called Euro. Euro may be able to sustain life, since it has liquid water in its surface, as well as, some land. Not only that, the temps tired rest at -110 degrees farheinheit, which is just as cold as the North Pole, and some humans live there. So, life is a possibility on Jupiter’s moon, Euro.
