Meaning the <meta name="description" content="xyz" /> may be used, but only as a last resort.  Instead it will preferentially use any structured data, aka schema.org data, that it finds on the page.  For this page the output contiains.

and Google finds and parses those (2) entries.  You can test that here: https://search.google.com/test/rich-results  It will give one warning as there is no image tag in the data (since there is no leading attachment).  I described all of this in another post.

Let me explain to you   :
See the picture:
  The descriptions are at the bottom of each section and specified in the yellow color, which is supposed to appear in the description code and not the name of the section as it is in the previous image :

This is regarding the sections.

As for topics, programs that are supposed to automatically put the first line or two of the topic in the situation, or as an alternative solution, make the user, member or writer put an appropriate description of the topic so that the description box is below the topic title

Your entitled to your interpretation, change the code to suit your needs.  Its not going to help your SEO as its not unique content

Made some adjustments using the OG and Schema data that was already present on the page.
