Reading Guide Date: 7 March Article Title: E-Gad! What about this article did you find most interesting or important?: What was most interesting to me was that people throw away so many damn electronics! At home, we have a drawer full of old cellphones awaiting a new calling, whether it’s because one of the new smart phones dies or a phone is lost and we still have more in the drawer. Sprint also has a program where you can send old phones back and they recycle the materials and reuse them for phones (to refurbish old ones or make new parts). If not taken care of properly, people in China and other countries suffer in digging out precious metals as a threat to their heath and the environment. How does this apply to Campus (think of Student behavior, etc.):

Unformatted text preview: Students are prime users of technology now days, and instead of throwing away old computers, campus should collect old electronics so that all the computer geeks like my brother can make new things out of these old yet still useful devices.

One question you would ask the author/Organization?: What about the continuing growth of mining and depletion of natural resources for future electronics?...

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
