Eutrophication refers to an increase of nutrients in a body of water. Although eutrophication is a natural process, when it is accelerated it is an issue for concern. Many human activities have led to widespread eutrophication in rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans around the world. If left unchecked, eutrophication becomes a problem, severely impacting water quality and biodiversity. Eutrophication was first recognized as a problem in the middle of the 20th century, and many biologists study it extensively in an attempt to prevent further eutrophication of vital bodies of water around the world.

In the sense of a natural process, eutrophication is part of the aging of bodies of water. When a body of water initially forms, it tends to be low in nutrients. As streams feed the body of water, they carry nutrients which foster plant life, ultimately allowing other species to grow as well. A layer of sediment slowly grows, and gradually the body of water will ultimately turn into a marsh or bog, as the sediment displaces the water and the species in the area change.

Some courts hold that an engagement ring is a conditional gift that becomes an absolute (effective) gift only on marriage. Other courts conclude that when an engagement ring is given to the donee, the donee should have full ownership rights in the property. Where do you stand on this issue? Why?
Weegy: My personal stance is that it is a conditional gift given in contemplation of marriage. If the marriage is broken off by the male, she keeps the ring. But if she breaks it off, he gets it back. It is kind of the "if he changes his mind penalty". [ If she breaks it off, she doesn't get to keep a nice present without going through with the underlying reason for the ring. . So essentially it depends on who is at fault for breaking off the ...
