Dear All, This sentence doesn't sound very native-like to me... Could you please help phrase it in a more natural way? By the way... do you still have that business card of the person from your school? Thanks
 Switch the and that. Do you still have the business card from that person from your school? - Sounds a little better.
 Thank you Philip.
Based on your answer, I've noticed two things:
1) We don't say do you have a business card OF the person... Instead, we use FROM
2) My original sentence (whether it's the wording or something else, I don't know) doesn't sound good ...
 Of, from: one's as good as they other, as far as I'm concerned. I think I already offered an alternative for your first sentence.

But by and large voters appear more willing to accept domestic environmental laws that international ones. If true, that is an indictment of years of green activism that has pushed for a global treaty first. What's "but by"? Is it a typo?
 Here, but means however, and it should be followed by a comma, just to avoid the confusion that you have experienced. I would also change the word order a little: But, voters by and large appear...
  Eh.... What's 'voters by'?
 by and large is a way of saying for the most part. So, the author is saying most voters.
