Example summary of a trend(if topic will repeat again in 4 weeks):
identified five trends in my regional newspaper headlines: Trump, the Vegas shooting, hurricanes, Spanish separatism, and California fires.
The first trend I identified was California fires. There were six articles related to California fires. They described the destruction of property, including of houses and offices, and the number of people who died in the fires. I was not surprised to see many articles about California fires because I know that fires occur in California due to natural and human causes.
