1) Here is an example:
When I woke up on this hot and humid morning, the sun temporarily blinded me. I had a headache so bad that I could barely stand up and walk to the kitchen for a nice, cold glass of refreshing ice water. While I was walking to the kitchen, a spider was staring at me, like it wanted to crawl on every hair follicle of my body and playfully haunt me, knowing my fear from its initial gaze upon me.
I could have just said:
I woke up this morning. It was hot and a spider stared at me.
2) In this case, doing good research is doing research that is satisfactory and true. From a scientific point of view, you would want to present evidence, and this would make the research good.
