Why the World Should Recycle - ...

This large disposal of solid waste has led researchers and environmentalists to worry about the room in our landfills, which has made them turn to recycling as the solution to cut back our solid waste disposal rates....   [tags: Environment, Trash] 2594 words

Juror - Juror 10 There are two main characteristics of the 10th juror that influence his verdict. The first is that juror 10 is prejudiced against the defendant (most likely he is racist, but we can not be 100% sure). The second is that he is uncaring and impatient.
