Damaged Goods [Day 2 Part 2]
The kinds of cases filed in the Small Claims Court vary, but a case must seek money only. For example, a suit cannot be brought in Small Claims Court to force a person or business to fix a damaged item, fulfill a promise made in an advertisement, or seek money for pain and suffering. Some of the kinds of cases most often filed in the Small Claims Court include the following: 1. Damage caused to automobiles, other personal property, real property or person. 2. Failure to provide proper repairs, services, merchandise, or goods. 3. Failure to return security, property, a deposit, or money loaned. 4. Failure to pay for services rendered, salary, an insurance claim, rent, commissions, or for goods sold and delivered. 5. Breach of lease, contract, warranty or agreement. 6. Loss of luggage, property, time from work, or use of property. 7. Bounced or stopped check.
The Small Claims Court may not be used by a claimant to harass another party. Where a claimant repeatedly unsuccessfully brings the same claim against a defendant, the claimant might end up with a court order denying him or her the right to use the Small Claims Court to prosecute the claim.
A traumatic brain injury interferes with the way the brain normally works. When nerve cells in the brain are damaged, they can no longer send information to each other in the normal way. This causes changes in the person's behavior and abilities. The injury may cause different problems, depending upon which parts of the brain were damaged most.
The brain is the control center for all human activity, including vital processes (breathing and moving) as well as thinking, judgment, and emotional reactions. Understanding how different parts of the brain work helps us understand how injury affects a person's abilities and behaviors.
The brain is made up of six parts that can be injured in a head injury. The effect of a brain injury is partially determined by the location of the injury. Sometimes only a single area is affected, but in most cases of TBI multiple areas have been injured. When all areas of the brain are affected, the injury can be very severe.

It is true that people tend to discard their old or damaged possessions these days, rather than repairing them. There are various reasons why we behave in this way, and it seems to me that the effects are largely negative.
There are three main reasons for this trend. Firstly, advances in technology enable companies to produce large number of goods faster than ever, and costumers can buy items with low prices than before. Samsung company, for example, produces thousands of television every day and all individuals can buy this commodity with reasonable prices if their old one is not working any more.Secondly, advertisements promote consumerism culture and encourage us to buying the latest new objects rather than repairing the old possessions. Finally, people are too busy with their jobs and making a living, and they do not have enough time to mending their old or broken things.
The most important consequence of this attitude is that raw materials such as trees, metals and fossil fuels are running out in order to produce new objects. Furthermore, we produce more waste than ever with throwing away damaged items and even plastic garbage doesn't break down easily and add to litter problem. Finally, increasing number of companies, which are producing large quantities of goods, release huge amount of gasses such as carbon monoxide that cause global temperature to rise.
What are the effects of this trend:I think this modification is negative due to the following reasons:1. old and damaged items can be fixed and given to charities. In this way, many people will have the things that they can not afford to buy.2. Throwing away the objects frequently will create lots of waste and even pollution. Therefore, it is not environmentally friendly.3.it is expensive to buy new stuffs and repairing things is less costly. We can save money for other things.
---------------The Essay-----------It is true that people tend to discard their damaged possessions these days, rather than repairing them. There are various reasons why we behave in this way, and it seems to me that the effects are largely positive.
I believe that the most important reason for people to throw their broken things is the increased complicacy of modern products which is much more complicated than ever. For example, if the major parts of computers stop working, like CPU, hard disk, it would be almost unable to recover them without a IT professional. For those who may try to send their damaged stuffs to the customer service centers for help, they would probably find there is no official center nearby. Even if there was one, it might take a long time for reservation, examining, waiting in queue, to get their possessions fixed. Therefore, the difficulties of preventing consumers from repairing would consequently lead them to purchasing new merchandise.
The tend above would affect many aspects of our life and society. On individual level, while discarding might be seen as a waste of money, I prefer the view that they would save their time and furthermore they have chance to bring back and enjoy some of the latest goods. From another angle, the transactions in second-hand markets might be beneficial for young adults who have not amassed enough money. From economic perspective, the increment of deal numbers, including the first and second-hand transactions, would advance the development of retail, manufacturing, logistics, and as well as the relative businesses of used stuff, like quality and value evaluation. Moreover, some certain thrown things will be useful to charity, clothes, in particular, are highly demanded by people who lives in poverty areas.
I am a little confused. About this 'discard their old or damaged possessions', is there necessary to use 'old' here? I don't think there is any information about 'old' mentioned in the question.
INDRODUCTIONthere has recently been an increased trend in people disposing damaged products rather than repairing them.There are several reasons for it and this phenomenon could have negative ramifications.
para 1-want to add my pointfirstly,one of the main reasons for this trend might be the tremendous increase in the labour cost for repairing damaged items these days,therefore people find it less expensive to buy new product instead.
It is true that people nowadays get easier to get rid of their damaged belongings rather than mend them. The condition is a backdrawn of people's habit at previous time. There are some reasons why the phenomenon has changed and what consequences of that behaviour.
The technology are developing through years. People can have assistant from things that very rare a long time ago. For example, it is not easy to communicate with our relatives who live in a distance from us. We can connect to their family by using public telephone and it was costly. Cell phones are very luxurious things that day, so when you have one then you will use it wisely and take carefully for it. When it was broken, then repairing is a first option. However, todays people can choose any type of cellphone base on the budget. When it is damaged, it is affordable to buy new ones that meet with our budget. Another reason for not repairing the broken possesion because it is not easy to find a person who can fix it. The thing happens when people break their umbrellas. They find difficulty to find an umbrella repairmen.
It is true that in recent years we have been living in a throw-away society, as people tend to dispose off the old or damaged materials, however, this behaviour is contradicting the reservation techniques of the previous generations. There are a variety of reasons for this transformation and it had huge influence on our lives. 041b061a72
