* Summary of piece (1/2 page min.)
       * Brief review of content (1st paragraph)
       * Describe scientific principles of piece (2nd paragraph)
* Purpose of presentation (1 page min.)
       * Even if not discussed in the article, describe impact on businesses and the economy,
          how people's values and beliefs may be altered by this knowledge, what impact there
          may be on society, and any political implications you can think of (mentioned, implied,
