Suggestion 1: Equip all vehicles with the latest high-technology security gadgets such as GPS tracking system, alarm systems and locks. This will , at least, hinder thieves from getting away with the vehicles in a short time. This will give the owners more time to be alerted of any theft occurring. Suggestion 2: Avoid keeping/leaving valuables such as laptop, handphones, ipads, purses, handbags in the cars. This will discourage would-be thieves from breaking into the car. Suggestion 3: Make sure to park your car in safe places/ areas such as secured car parkings, well-lit car parkings. This will avoid car break-ins because thieves cannot operate well in a highly-public areas. Suggestion 4: make sure you keep all your windows wind-up. Thieves will use the small openings in the windows to open your door and break-in.
Question 2: Persuasive essay
Introduction: The goods of science and technology to humans: o o It makes our lives convenient It improves the quality of life
The downsides of science and technology to humans: o it is environmentally hazardous if not properly monitored
Thesis statement: (the controlling idea of the essay) There are several/ three reasons why we do not want the factory to be set-up in our residential area (Taman Bahagia)
Body 1: The first reason is it is a hazard to the environment
It is a hazard to the environment
It causes all kinds of pollution such as thermal pollution, air pollution, noise pollution and water pollution Affect the quality of life because humans depend on water and air (nature) to live long and healthy life. Pollution can kill other living things such as floras and faunas and this will lead to inbalance in the ecological system.
Body 2: It is a hazard to health o The harmful chemicals being released into the air can cause ailments to people especially small children and the elderly; people suffer from asthma and respiratory problems The toxic wastes and refuse from the factory thrown into rivers and streams can seep into the water tables and contaminate the water supply as well killing the fish; It can also cause terminal illnesses such as cancers of all kinds (skin cancer, throat cancer, lung cancer, nose cancer)
Body 3: It can cause traffic congestion o Most vehicles used by the factory are big lorries and trailers. They can take up most of the road and this will cause congestion as other vehicles have to compete with these lorries/trucks; Residents will find it difficult to arrive at their destinations in time because they have to give way to vehicles that travel to and fro the factory every day. Besides, these heavy vehicles can cause big potholes and this pose a risk to the residents using the roads.
Body 4: It can cause fatalities
Children like to play by the roadside. They can get run over by a lorry if they are not careful enough. The elderly or cyclists might get knocked down by vehicle if they are not fast enough to avoid the big trucks and lorries. Some out –of- control lorry drivers might rammed into people’s homes and put the residents’ lives in danger, too.

A PROPOSED 5 KILOMETRES BICYCLE LANES FOR RESIDENTS OF TAMAN BAHAGIA, MIRI
Taman Bahagia is located in Pujut areas which is about 6 kilometers from town centre. The population of the residents is about 2,000 people and is showing a marked increase in the near future. Taman Bahagia residential area is provided with a good number of facilities which make
life convenient. Such facilities built are a playground, a 2 kilometer running track, a community hall and a football field. However, our residential area lack a bicycle lane track that would improve the quality of our life overall. Below are several reasons why we propose a new 5 kilometers bicycle lane for Taman Bahagia to be considered by the relevant authorities.
1. The safety of the cyclists
If the proposed bicycle lane is approved by the relevant authorities, this will ensure the overall safety of the residents especially those who love to cycle. The risk of being run over by cars and motorcycle will be reduced if a proper lane is built to accommodate the cyclist. Besides, the elderly and children can cycle at their own pace in this assigned area.
To conclude, the relevant authorities need to look into this problem due to the reasons proposed above and come up with a winning solution for all parties involved.
