Clarifying the use of the subjunctive mood in Spanish

May 03 alle 19:03

I've recently begun to pick up Spanish again after learning it for nearly seven years throughout middle school and high school; however, I'm a little confused with the subjunctive mood.

As far as I can remember, it is used with certain phrases as well with uncertainty or doubt. However, after having gone through some examples and thinking that I understand it, the examples below have confused me because I don't understand why the subjunctive mood is used over the indicative.

Any explanations would be much appreciated!

Example 2 from a news article:
