Quentin carries around a suitcase stuffed with books wherever he goes and finds excuses to get out of gym class. He is excitable and often confounds the other members and townspeople with his advanced vocabulary when jumpy. Jimmy "O'Dell" Carroll: is small and excitable, the most emotional member of the group. His father drove the town garbage truck, allowing O'Dell access to many useful items, frequently scrounged to further the group's efforts. He is always scheming ways of making money, from the failed iron scrap attempt—which took an entire summer, yielded a net loss of one dollar, not counting the destruction of borrowed equipment, and almost killed Sonny—to the profitable harvesting of ginseng.
Over twelve million workers were jobless and families lined up at soup kitchens and bread lines for food (5).This created Americas biggest crime wave in the history. Grocery store robberies were common and many urban poor stole food. Farmers organized public demonstrations to demand higher prices for their crops. At times farmers in the Midwest disrupted food shipments by blocking highways with logs and poured milk onto roads. Many banks seized land cattle, and farm machinery from farmers that defaulted on their loans to keep themselves in business (4 pg665).
Although a fifth Kiwanee dumper was updated last year with the hope of resolving the problem, it was unable to fix them and the overtime costs of the process are still very high. 2. There is a long waiting time for trucks and drivers in queuing to unload process fruit into the receiving plant. Seriously, when the holding bins were full, the waiting time could be up to several hours. This has upset the growers since the wages of a truck and drives are up to $100 per hour.
“Mama: What you been doing for these three days, son?” (105) Walter replied by telling her he spent his work time just driving, roaming the streets of their small are, and drinking at the Green Hat. (105) Also, after Walter was finally given another chance to prove himself a man, he disobeyed his mother. Lena told him that he could have a share of the money, if he put a small some into a safe bank account for his sister Beneatha. (106) Instead of doing so, Walter poured every single cent of the money into the hands of another man. Karma came back to bite him for his Selfish actions.
One of the earliest and most profound reasons for his experiment was the guilt over his own family's waste in their daily lives. Before he started the No-Impact Man project, by his own count, in four days they had consumed and collected 3 full bags of trash. Cardboard, Styrofoam, plastic cups, aluminum containers were just a few of the things found in his collected bags. This seem to horrified him more than anything else. Another guilt which he felt about his family was the fact that because of the convenience of plastics and throw away containers, they had no time really spent together as a family.
A robber shot a Black Friday shopper who refused to give up his purchases outside a Walmart store, leaving the victim hospitalized in critical but stable condition after one of several violent incidents in California that marred the annual bargain-hunting ritual, authorities said. Police in San Leandro, about 15 miles east of San Francisco, said the victim and his family were walking to their car around 1:45 a.m. when they were confronted by a group of men who demanded their shopping items. When the family refused, a fight broke out, and one of the robbers pulled a gun and shot the man, said Sgt. Mike Sobek. "The suspects saw these guys, got out of their car and tried to rob them but were unsuccessful," Sobek said.
Consequently, the final terms favoured the city. In the end, many citizens were shipped off to slum housing, their personal belongings transported in city garbage trucks. Bulldozers were sent in during the night to level the community; not only the houses, but the stores, businesses and even the church. One resident recalls,"Those who refused or were slow to leave often found themselves scrambling out of the back door with their belongings as the bulldozers were coming in the front." Property claims were in chaos: only a handful of families could establish legal title, others claimed squatter rights, and others rented.

If you consider driving then the problem gets even worse. Drinking and driving is a one of the biggest problems when it comes to driving and it is against the law. Every injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. Although the percentage of crashes that are alcohol-related has dropped dramatically in recent years, there are still way too many preventable accidents. Unfortunately, in spite of great progress, alcohol-impaired driving remains a serious national problem that tragically affects many victims on a yearly basis.
I have seen a lot of people quit drinking because they were not able to drive off with their vehicles due to the ignition interlock system that was placed into their vehicles due to the drinking habits people have. I have also see a lot of people going to jail because they cannot stop drinking. If everyone could stop drinking it could help save a lot of lives today. Innocent kids and parents are being killed every day due to someone else drinking and driving. •Please support your findings with statistics.
