The following graph shows the statistics of motor vehicle theft in Malaysia from 1980 – 2010. From the graph it is clearly seen that the amount of motorcycles theft has been increasing drastically throughout the years compared to private cars theft. This might been caused by the fact that motorcycles are easy to be stolen compared to cars. But the amount of cars theft in 2010 has also been increased since 1980.
Which means the activity of all vehicles theft has been increasing throughout the years. To avoid from becoming a victim of vehicles theft, there are a few preventive measures that can be taken. The first measure is to avoid parking your vehicle in a secluded place. This goes for both motorcycles and private cars owner. You should always make sure that you park your vehicle at the well lit areas at night or if possible, park at places that you can see your vehicle. The next measure is to install a tracking device such as GPS on vehicles.
Although it does not stop the theft from stealing your vehicles but it surely helps in locating them back. The GPS enables the police to track the whereabouts of stolen vehicles as long as the thieves didn’t dismantle it right away after stealing the vehicle. Vehicles owners also can install extra locks to their vehicle to avoid being stolen. For example car owners can install a steering lock while motorcycles comes with fork lock which is equivalent to car steering lock. This is an extra security to prevent their vehicle from the thieves.
Extra locks mean extra work for the thieves to steal the vehicles and they might just change their mind from doing so. For car owners, make sure to keep your belongings that you left in your car out of sight, including packages, boxes and sealed things because it can attract attention from thieves. You should always make sure that you lock your vehicles before leaving it. Motorcycle owners should avoid parking next or between large trucks, SUVs or anything that can help cover thieves trying to steal your motorcycle.
Use a chain and extra locks on the rim or stand or handle of your motorcycle. If you have to leave your motorcycle outside make sure to lock it to a pipe or something, put it around the back of the apartment buildings where someone just passing by can’t see it. Also when buying second-hand vehicles, it is good to take these precautionary steps to avoid purchasing stolen goods. Make sure the vehicle you are buying comes with original and complete documents. If in doubt about the vehicle you are buying, make a quick check with either the police or Road Transport Department for assurance.
Do not be enticed or lured by the (cheap) price because most stolen vehicles are sold at a lower rate than the market price. Vehicle and motorcycle theft became serious as the statistic rising, as the owner we should keep aware the safety of our vehicles and motorcycle.

We should protest against the plan of setting up a factory near our housing area as it is hazardous to all its residents.
Electricity which is used in factory is generated by heat stored in the fossil fuels and the stored energy creates a heat flow that drives turbine. The turbines then generate electricity. All the electricity try to be organized so that it may travel in the same direction in a small line. Organization of this sort is created by man and so it does not occur naturally. Excess heat is then created because of the unnatural processes of creating organization. The excess heat lead to thermal pollution which contributes to global warming.
If the factory is situated near a housing area then all its residents will experience changes in temperature around them. Factories using single unit machines would cause a sound of about 98 dB and above. This means as the number of machines being use by the factory increase so does the noise it produce. If the factory is situated near a housing area the immediate effect to its residents is deterioration of the ability to hear things clearly. This is why we must go against the plan of building the factory. We wouldn’t want to have noise pollution in our residential area. The machines in factory works by using fuel.
The more fuel being use by the factory the more smokes will it produce. These smokes will be release to the air and cause air pollution. The smoke carries particulates. Particulates are tiny particles which are grouped by their size. The smaller the particulates are of a noxious substance, the more dangerous it is as it will be able to travel more deeply into the airways of peoples who breathe it in. People who lives near a factory is facing the risk of having health problems. Last but not least is the chemical pollution caused by the release of some toxic chemical in the factory.
The chemical waste will pollute the soil and water in the surrounding area. The soil will be highly toxic and unsafe for people. The chemically polluted water will be unsafe for elementary uses as swimming, fishing and drinking water supply. An example of dangerous contaminant that has been entering the food chains are the polychlorinated biphenyl compounds, which are components in adhesives, plastic wrap and various lubricants. It can be concluded here that the building of a factory near our housing area will cause more disadvantages than advantages to its residents.
The more people realise about this is the better as we all must stand together to protest against the plan of building a factory near our housing area. We all must protect our environment from harmful pollution. We wouldn’t want our children to grow up in a polluted area. We need to provide a safe and healthy environment for our generation in the future. (502 words) QUESTION 3 Plagiarism is a growing concern across universities in Malaysia and internationally. The definition of Plagiarism can be vary across the disciplines in accordance with differences in knowledge, authorship conventions and traditions.
The University’s Examination Regulations define plagiarism as the unacknowledged inclusion in a student’s work of material derived from the published or unpublished work of another. This constitutes plagiarism whether it is intentional or unintentional. “work” here includes internet sources as well as printed material. There are many reasons for the rapid growth in plagiarism. One of it is the fact that students nowadays have increasingly ready access to downloadable information from the internet and assessment tasks.
They tend to copy everything from the pages in the internet instead of making their own opinion about the topic. This might been caused by the students lack of knowledge and inexperience. Students have not been told about plagiarism at school and do not know how to avoid it. To avoid this from happening, students should be reminded not to cut and paste information from electronic sources such as web pages. They should think independently and critically. They can read what others have said about a topic, but they will have to acknowledge the source, and then formulate their own opinion.
Some students are having difficulty with citing/referencing from other sources which caused them to do plagiarism unintentionally. To avoid this, students should make sure that they understand the lecturer’s expectations especially with regard to writing style, collaboration with other students, referencing/citing, sources and bibliographies. Students should always refer to their lecturer or tutor for advice to avoid plagiarism. Another cause of plagiarism is the lack of time due to poor time management. Students with poor time management often having problem to finish their assignment on time.
Due to this situation they tend to choose an easy but illegal shortcuts which is plagiarising others work. This can be avoided by reminding students to plan their work and asking them to send their draft to be assessed by their lecturer or tutors before they submitted their work. Students involved in plagiarism may not be able to learn certain skills that they should learn while in college or universities such as evaluating sources, taking careful notes, selecting appropriate quotations, paraphrasing and other related skills which can be very useful to them in their life as a student and beyond.
They will not learn any skills at all and their life as a students will be a complete waste of time. As a conclusion, plagiarism is a problem that has become rampant in higher learning institutions across all disciplines. Combating plagiarism is thus crucial as it is an immoral and unethical act violating another person’s intellectual property and lead to academic dishonesty. In the context of several studies, the overall findings suggest that the fight against plagiarism involves grooming the students and provide an adequate exposure.
Most of the students in this university are unaware of what really constitutes plagiarism and the consequence of such academic misconduct. (501 words) QUESTION 5 GENIUS DAY CARE ?
