What must you take into consideration when you are creating your PPT presentation? How do these considerations guide your design?

As you are in the final days of working on your technical report, other than time-management issues, what part of the project has given you the most trouble? Is it the aesthetic component? Is it the integration of your primary research? How about the demand that you make your terminology and research comprehensible for non-experts? Or the integration and discussion of images? What about grammar and style? Or the incorporation of secondary research in a smooth and meaningful way? What is the hardest for you at this point?

From what you read, tell me first what an "IRB Approval" is. Second, why is IRB approval important to secure and for what kinds of projects it is critical? Based on what you've read, why does your project need to have it or why does your project not need to have it?
