comment Can I use real presidents (past and present) and real companies in a fictional story?
Can you clarify "largely" (when not?) and add some support for your second sentence? (Real companies show up in fiction, so when is there risk and when not? How do you know?) Thanks.

comment Is it ok to begin an essay/report with a quote?
Hi and welcome to Writers.SE. I edited your answer to remove the part about general writing help as it doesn't seem to address this question and also seems to promote the site you mentioned. (Linking to commercial services is fine if relevant and if you disclose affiliations.) This answer would be stronger if you could edit in something to support what you say about this being better. For example, do quotes grab the reader's attention, or do people skip past them? How do you know? Thanks.

removed what appears to be promotional content (and not an answer to the question directly)

comment What steps to follow in thinking through the writing of a conclusion?
To this I would add: thinking through what to say in your conclusion is really just an extension of thinking through what to say in the essay. Plan the major points before writing, and the conclusion will fall out more easily.

comment What does one call author blurbs at the bottom of journalistic articles?
The blurb may include a title, but I believe the question is asking what the whole block of text is called.
