Please note that the fonts "Clarendon Condensed and "Kozuka Mincho Pro B" are used in these documents. If your computer does not have these fonts installed, it will automatically replace them with a default font, which will cause it to look different than the screenshots indicated and require you to re-format the slides.
Please also note that this PowerPoint may contain links to outside websites or videos for additional content to expand upon topics. At the time of this posting, all links have been verified and are working, but I cannot predict when web addresses may change or be removed. If you notice a link not working, please let me know and I will rectify it.
