Abstract for a Lay and Scientific Audience

Hello. This assignment is a supplement to a previous essay I have completed. This assignment requires you to write both a scientific abstract and a general abstract for my essay. Abstracts are concise summaries of your argument and should be one paragraph maximum for each abstract. Remember that abstracts are not introductions–instead, they are summaries of the main points and thesis of your essay. Cite in-text citations as needed. Note: avoid first-person, wordiness, passive voice, and don’t mimic one abstract from another. Thank you.
