‘disinterested’ or ‘uninterested’?

Disinterested and uninterested are NOT the same. Disinterested means impartial or neutral or not taking sides whereas uninterested means bored or lacking interest. A jury must be disinterested; an umpire needs to be disinterested. But they definitely can not be uninterested if they wish to do their job properly.
