Alessadra, I like your revision. I am glad you left out most of the "also includes" phrasing. The content stands out well.

I'm going to post my revision within the hour, so you can compare yours with mine. I kept some of the categories so readers can see the relationships between items.

Thanks for taking the challenge!

No wonder why have the posts with "lists" are so much popular in this internet world :) It makes our life so easy to gather the overall essence of the content with small bullet lists. I love your this post. Also, you explained it nicely with your revision of bullet lists. Keep up the good work!
