Primary 6 - Robbery

Three days before my twelfth birthday my parents brought me to the bank to start my first bank account. After taking our queue number we sat down and waited.
Suddenly, three men wearing black masks dashed into the bank, waving long knives and shouted, "Do not move!"
Two of the masked men went round and took all our hand phones. The other masked man went to threaten the bank's security officer. He showed the officer a picture of his daughter and said, "If you want to see your daughter again, disable the security system and give me your gun!”
We were stuck with no way to seek help. However, the masked men did not notice I had a hand phone hidden inside my jeans pocket! When the masked men were not looking, I dialled 999 and whispered, "Help! We are being robbed…”
Before I could finish, one of the masked men turned around and saw me. He ran towards me waving his knife ready to cut off my hand. Things happened so fast, I heard a slashing sound and blood splashed on my face. I looked and saw my hand was still alright but my father was not. He had jumped in front to protect me.
"Urgh..." My father groaned in pain and I saw he had a big wound on his chest.
"Daddy, are you ok?" I sobbed.
My father looked at me and with a fading voice said, "Chris, I am sorry I was always busy working and had no time for you. How I wish I had done things differently."
"Daddy, hang in there please!" I begged, hugging him tightly.
The police and ambulance arrived shortly later, but it was too late, my father was already dead.
It was the most miserable day of my life, I managed to help save everyone, but my father died to save me.

Flash Mob Robberies

...Flash Mob Robberies Americans, despite their religion, race, ethnicity, or gender, never gave much thought to the terms like “flash mob robberies” or “organized looting.” However, these expressions have become acknowledge to the American society due to their criminal nature and the alarming frequency in which they take place. Historically, a flash mob was clearly an assembly of people who unexpectedly appeared at the same location at the same time. Now, flash mobs began to incorporate robberies, but they occurred infrequently across the country. Unfortunately, because of the economic collapse, flash mobs have become very notorious and are increasing in numbers in turning into criminal action in attempt to survive in America. Adolescents take advantage of social media, such as Facebook, and Twitter, to organize large group of other adolescents to assemble at a certain time and place. Once assembled, the large groups of delinquents run into a store steal as much merchandise as they can in a very short period of time. This is so the retail merchant does not have time to react. As a result, the once unfamiliar term is no notoriously known amongst all Americans. All across the country, retailers and other Americans have personally witnessed and reported multiple flash mob incidents. Law enforcement officers have recognized the accuracy of the flash mop epidemic and are taking the criminal manner very seriously. There are two important elements which make flash...

Another Boxing Robbery

...ANOTHER BOXING ROBBERY My fraternity Brod, Edrin “The Sting” Dapudong, could not help but show his disappointment when we chatted over his loss to South African Gideon Buthelezi by a split decision for the IBO World Junior Bantamweight Title at the Emperor Palace Hotel Casino Resort Pavilion in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday, November 10. Dapudong’s manager, former North Cotabato Governor Manny Pinol, was utterly dismayed by the decision favoring the South African even after Dapudong “turned Buthelezi’s face into a bloody mess” as early as the first round “and then floored the local fighter with his signature left hook in the ninth round that sent Buthelezi to the canvas for a mandatory eight count.” Governor Pinol dubbed the fight as “one of the greatest boxing robberies of all time,” similar to the controversial Timothy Bradley victory over Manny Pacquiao. South Africa is notorious for hometown decisions. Governor Pinol writes in his blog, mannypinol.com, that “It was only the British judge from London, Reg Thompson, who saw Dapudong the winner by a wide margin while the South African judge, Tony Nyangiwe, living up to South African boxing tradition, and American Michael Pernick from Miami, gave the fight to Buthelezi.” I told Brod Edrin that even as he lost the fight, his being robbed of the title might hopefully drum up interest in the sport again and, eventually, in his capability as a fighter. I guess the boxing world needs such......

... GE217 Composition II Week 2 (B) Identifying logical Fallacies 1. Bandwagon Appeal: “Cash for Clunkers”; The New York Times, September 30, 2012 The argument on this article is about how the people think that something should to be done because the majority does it. The "Cash for Clunkers" program has been a success. By subsidizing the purchases of new, more fuel efficient vehicles for Americans willing to trade in their old gas guzzlers, this initiative makes a short-term investment in our long-term goals of environmental protection and decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels. 2. Ad Hominem: The education for women; Richard Norquist; This is an article from the year 1917 were women are not suppose to know everything like men, he’s argument and appeal that women should have the right to go be equal to men in terms of education. 3. Begging the question: “Murder is morally wrong, Therefore, abortion is morally wrong”;Hurley P. ; About.com The argument presumes the truth of a premise that isn’t stated, namely that abortion is murder. As this premise is far from obvious, and the arguer doesn’t even mention it (much less give it a defense), the argument begs the question. 4. Red Herring: Consequences of using Nuclear Power; Dean Babst and David Krieger; 1997 Here the arguer does nothing to address the issue of the dangers of nuclear power, but instead changes the subject to the danger of electricity. If there’s even an argument at all here, it certainly has nothing......

A Robbery

...tried to swerve left to ride past the police car but it was a failed attempt as police cars whizzed into view in front of them. Outnumbered and without any guns, the robbers had no choice but to surrender. The holdup was a foiled plan without modern weapons like guns although they sure had a lot of guts to carry it out in broad daylight. They were caught red-handed; hand cuffed and arrested to the police headquarters. Back at the store police officers can be seen jotting down statement of the witnesses. Although the jewellery store did not lose any of its jewellery as all of it was returned to the store owner, it was terribly damaged. The owner had to incur the costs of renovation and invest in a better security system to prevent any more robbery attempts. After assisting the police, father and I went home, we were chatting about the incident when I suddenly remembered that we had not chosen a gift for mother and tomorrow is already her birthday, we do not have any time to lose. I quickly told father about it, taking a glance at his watch, we realised that it was already afternoon. We took our lunch and hurried off to look for a suitable gift for mother....

Composition and Inverse

...Composition and Inverse Alicia Frambro MAT 222: Intermediate Algebra Prof: Michael Smith September 22, 2013 Composition and Inverse When using functions, there are different ways to solve various values. Many companies use these functions to monitor business pertaining gross profit and many other operations such as adjusting productivity. Visual examples of these functions are graphs. They provide a visual relationship between composition and inverse solutions as well and the difference between profit gain and profit loss for a business. The following functions will be used to solve certain problems. fx=2x+5 g(x)=x2-3 (x) = 7+x3 f-h(4) Use rule of composition and solve which is f(4)-h(4). f(x)-h(x)= 2x+5-(7-x) 2(4) +5- 7-43 Substitute 4 for x. 8+ 5- 33 Use order of operations to solve. 8+5-1= 12 Therefore (f-h)(4)= 12 Evaluate two compositions of the above functions. A. (fog)(x) B. (fog)(x) The method that should be used to solve is to find the solution of one function and then substitute the solution for x in the other solution. For A we would first solve for g(x) and substitute the solution for x into f(x). A. (fog)(x)= f(g(x)) (fog)(x)= f(x2-3) (fog)(x)= 2(x2-3) +5 Substitute g(x) for x in f(x). (fog)(x) = 2x2-6+5 Simplify by using the distributive property and order of operations. (fog)(x)= 2x2 -1 Answer. B. (h0g)(x) = h(g(x)) Use the same concept of A but (hg)(x)= h(g(x)) (hog)(x) = h(x2 –......

The Robbery

...The robbery It was summer vacations and I went on holiday with my friends Josie jump and jazzy Jasmine to France in a village to visit a friend. This was a wonderderful place to visit. We went to do grocery shopping, as we were going to do a party. It was a weaseling windy day, there was a bold man giving dirties. It was sunny Sam who sat motionlessly, scanning the street from the car he had stolen two days ago, red like blood and a nineteen eighties Mercedes that no one would notice. He'd been parked in front of a grocery store for about 2 hours tracking the cars ; who went in and out of the grocery store . Nobody really paid attention to the cars a lot, as everybody would be busy bees doing there shopping. Sam hadn't always been so careful. He'd spent a few years in prison because he was a bit stupid to think his plans through. But by now he had worked out some pretty good rules to follow. Sam didn't need too do much for his purposes anyway; he never liked the way of rich. He just wanted to lead a nice simple life away from the giant cities. Nothing wrong with that is there? , whispered to himself. Springfield lane didn't have much of a police force just a few cops here and there sorting out minor offences, which was their most serious duty. This is one of the reasons why Sam chooses villages rather than humungous cities; he can steal cars in this way. He was going to steal another Mercedes which was bogey green bogey green. He meets a pretty girl called......

Composition of Sugars

...Lab: 3—Chemical Composition of Cells: Sugars Purpose of this lab: To learn about sugars and the test used to identify them. Introduction The organic macromolecules known as sugars are a type of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are composed of monosaccharides, which are single, sugar unit monomers. Two sugar units linked together are known as a disaccharide. In this lab, we conducted tests on various substances with Bendict’s solution to determine which sample contained sugars. Benedict’s solution is a turquoise blue color and reacts with sugars after being heated in a boiling water bath, resulting in a color change. The color change varies with the concentration of sugar present, with strong positives indicating a high sugar concentration and weaker positives correlating with lesser concentrations of sugar. The color changes are as follows: orange-red (very high), orange (high), yellow-orange (moderate), yellow (low), green (very low), no change in color (no sugar present). Materials and Methods: --6 test tubes marked at 1cm and 3cm from the bottom --Benedict’s reagent --substances to be tested: water (control), glucose solution, onion juice, potato juice, starch suspension, and an unknown substance --hot plate with a beaker filled with water for a boiling water bath Each substance to be tested was filled in a separate test tube to the 1cm mark, with the exception of onion and potato juice, to which 5 drops of each were added to......

...variants of β-casein have a Histidine residue at this position. In the case of the variants containing Proline the enzymatic hydrolysis of the Ile66-Pro67 bond does not occur or occurs at a very low rate. The proportion of the different protein variants expressed in the milk, including those of βcasein, is related to their allele distributions in the various cattle breeds and populations. Changing selection targets in the last decades has resulted in changes in bovine breed EFSA Scientific Report (2009) 231, 2-107 Review of the potential health impact of β-casomorphins and related peptides composition in most European countries. While no detailed information is available, it is likely that these changes in breed composition have had an impact on milk composition, including protein variants. Taking into account the lack of detailed knowledge in milk protein variant composition and the diverse geographical origin of dairy products and ingredients across Europe, insufficient information is currently available on the exposure of individual consumers to different β-casein variants. It would appear that fresh raw/unprocessed milk obtained from healthy cows does not contain BCM7 or related peptides. By contrast, there is a substantial body of evidence indicating that different proteolytic systems involved in fermented milk or cheese manufacture can potentially hydrolyze β-casein to BCM7 or other BCMs and further degrade these peptides to shorter-chain peptides and even......

...Composition 1.1 Felipe Viveiros de Moura PAT 201 1. “Creaking Door” a. Where and when: This creaking door was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. b. Interest and influence: Having lived in this house for about 5 months, the creaking of my door every time I leave my room has become a sound that is part of my daily routine. After listening to all my recordings and selecting the top 8, this was one of the ones that, I believe, captured exactly what I was looking for. c. Techniques: Mic of the recorder was placed very close to the axis of rotation of the door d. Success in capturing sound: For a couple of tries, I could not capture the sound as loud as I intended to. After changing position, recording from inside the room and increasing the recording level, I was able to get the results I wanted. Background sound from my roommates was another difficulty but recording from inside the room helped solve the problem. 2. “Flush” e. Where and when: The flush of a toilet was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. f. Interest and influence: Although this is a sound that everyone listens to every day, it does not receive the appreciation that it deserves due to its bad association. g. Techniques: recorder was placed perpendicular to the toilet centered in the drainage, to avoid the sound being too loud I made sure to place the recorder......

The Criticisms on the Law of Robbery and Burglary

...The criticisms on the law of robbery and burglary is that In order for robbery to be committed, theft needs to be completed, in cases of theft appropriation only occurs at one time whereas in the robbery theft is a continuing act, as seen in the case of Lockley where defendant (D) used force to escape after he had stolen; therefore this is a problem because when using elements of theft it conflicts with the courts approach in theft cases. The Theft Act 1968 does not give any definition of the key elements of ‘entry’, ‘trespasser’, ‘building or part of a building’ in burglary. The inconsistency of not having any definitions causes the courts into deciding what the Act actually meant; therefore leading to different courts making different decisions on what it means, especially what is meant by ‘entry’. This is a problem because it means judge made law going against what the parliament actually meant. In addition to this the law on entry has changed as seen in the case of Collins where the principle stated that the D must know they are a trespasser or are reckless in not knowing. Here the CoA held that there needs to be ‘an effective and substantial entry’. However when it came to the case of Brown the ‘substantial’ part was removed and Brown was guilty of burglary as his entry was ‘effective’. Whereas in the case of Ryan ‘effective’ element was abandoned and Ryan was guilty because the jury found that D had entered the house. The decisions in these cases are inconsistent......

Led Composition

...Section 1: Claim: Observable factors that affect the composition of LEDs During our research of gallium arsenide phosphide (GaPxAs1-x), which is a semi-conducting material in the form of light emitting diodes, we observed how properties of the data collected directly correlated to the composition of the LED. The observed and measured properties we were able to notice and calculate during our research were wavelength, color, voltage, and temperature. Using a diffraction grating we first tested the different compositions for which color of light was emitted. Our data as can be seen in appendix 1, on pg. L93 table 1, shows that as the composition shifted from GaP0.40As0.60 to GaP1.00As0.00 the colors emitted, shifted from those associated with longer wavelengths to those of shorter wavelengths. (Red to green) We then set up a scanning spectrometer in order to measure the wavelengths, and as can be seen in our data in appendix 1, on pg. L94 table 2, as well as on the graph in appendix 2, we were able to measure the wavelength of each LED with varying composition. According to our data it can be said that greater bond length equals lower Eg, since lower Eg will result in longer wavelength. For example, GaP1.00As0.00 has the shortest wavelength and the shortest bond length, and as a result has the largest band gap energy. From the same data we can also conclude that greater bond strength equals greater Eg due to the fact that GaP1.00As0.00 has the highest bond strength. The......

Robbery Sentencing

...This essay is to decide whether or not to vote on a bill being passed by the Georgia state legislature. The bill will impose longer sentencing for armed robberies, but first we must weigh all of the options. Before we vote on this bill lets research and think of other solutions that will help us to decide whether this bill is needed or not. I am one who agrees with this bill 100%. When someone commits a robbery it is a crime against that person, so in my eyes it can be categorized as a hate crime. Regardless of how many voters are for or against a bill does that mean we have to make it a policy: yes if it is decided that it should pass; that way everyone will be on the same page.I think that the bill should be looked into a bit differently in order to see if there are some better solutions for people convicted of armed robbery. With the bill being in question I think we have to review what the bill will ensure and whether or not we should even consider “fixing something that is not broke”. No matter where you go there will be crime, even in the jails. When you think about it there are a lot of good that will come from the bill but also a lot of bad too. With the longer prison terms comes more overcrowding issues. We already have problems with population in the prisons, so would this mean that we would have to build more prisons? Then there is the possibility that they will start up gangs in prison therefore causing more riots and chaos inside prison walls. The good that......
