Saying that "his cancer is fatal" means that his cancer WILL kill him. The word "fatal" means will cause death. Saying "his cancer is deadly" means that his cancer is dangerous and COULD kill him. "deadly" means that it could kill, but it might not. For example, a deadly snake bite could kill you if you do not go to hospital. A fatal snake bite will kill you anyway.

    2. The meaning of "apart" and "apart from" aren't so different after all. Both mean the opposite (or negative) of together. I'll give you two sentences that mean the same thing to show you. The United States and Japan are not next to each other, they are apart. But you could also say: The United States and Japan are apart from each other. Both sentences mean that the U.S. and Japan are not close together. Japan is far away from the United States, so the two countries are far apart. Put it this way: if you want to write a sentence with the phrase "apart from," put it between the two things you want to contrast, like "Japan is apart from the United States." If you want to just use the word "apart," state the two things you want to contrast, in this case it's Japan and the United States, connect the two things with the word "and", like "Japan and the United States," and then simply state that they "are apart," meaning not together. So you'd get "Japan and the United States are apart."

    2. Poison           Ouch! Something hurt my arm. Soon red spots spread all over my body. So itchy and painful. I went to a hospital. The doctor told me it WAS poison. THE poison of A caterpillar! I felt sick, but at the same time I thought, “Oh, this is how it works! Amazing!” What is “amazing”? Poison! This WAS the first time I experienced poison. Actually, I had been interested in poison for a long time. Don’t look at me like that! I’ll tell you the reason. I found A book at a library three years ago. It had some colorful and beautiful pictures of POISONOUS planTs and animals. I especially liked the strawberry frog from South America. It is only two centimeters LONG and has A cute red body, just like a strawberry. But it can kill you in one hour with its poison. It is so pretty and so strong! I was surprised. The title of the book was “Poison and Medicine." The book said THAT poison can be medicine. For example, the DPT vaccine we all get is made from INACTIVATED poison. There are some studies ABOUT MAKING medicine to kill cancers from THE poisons of frogs and lizards. How wonderful! I got so interested in poison and learned about more ABOUT IT. I visited an exhibition about poison called, “Modokuten,” in Tenjin last year. It was just fantastic. What a large world of poison. Still, a very little part of that is known to us. Now my dream is to find CURES to fatal diseases from poisons. I will cure many people with poison. My mom often says to me, “Oh, reading about poison again? Scary girl! Don’t kill me!” No, mom.

    2. “Another twist” means another complication. “Mechanisms” are the body cameras. Adding body cameras to police officers was a complicated matter, and had a troubled history, since the police departments in general didn’t want them, or wanted control on the rights to the footage that they took, in opposition to civil rights groups, and the public. The article mentions that because of the conflict between the police departments and the public about the footage captured, and if it is to be publicly available or used in the court of law, one lawsuit at least was filed. So this delay in deployment will make things even worse since it could be viewed by the public as an excuse by the police department not to deploy the ‘mechanisms’ and not a genuine reason, and could elevate the tensions.
