That is when our situation went from good to bad. We were experiencing a traveler's worst nightmare. When we walked back to the place we stayed, I saw three girls were cycling on the left on us, so we avoid them by walking nearer to the path at the right. At that time, I heard a motorcycle sound from back riding to the right of us. Fyi, the right side of us were only a small path and I asked my friend:" Hey, why this motor wanted to ride so near to us and he don't use the left path..." And we had been robbed, because that time my friend were carrying a clutch bag of mine. The first reaction after getting robbed was "ARE WE GOT ROBBED?" We had been stunned and frightened, I don't know how we walked back to the place we stayed. I never thought that I will be robbed in one day, like never. And we started to be sentimental about everyone around us, when people slightly near us, we will be terrified and double check our belongings. We started to suspect everyone around us, we can't trust anyone. But luckily we were fine after few days.
It is not my intent to speak about the relative safety of third world countries. So far, I never heard any story about other people getting robbed in Cambodia. *I'm the unlucky one TT

What I learned after getting robbed?

Don't be so naive, the are also cruel people outside the world.
Must always be careful and on alert. We were so happy that time and thought the place was very safe because the village people we met are so kind, so our awareness are 30% on that night.
But I'm quite lucky because the belongings I lost were

power bank(can't use my phone on bus because need to contact host on the next stop, phone always die when I saw nice scenery) phone cable notes book (all my travel memories TT)
RM1 (hope the robber happy with it ^____^) rubber band umbrella(this is why I became so tanned) bus tickets (luckily the receptionist gave us a new ticket without buying it)
Identity card (I think the robber was cursing on my pic because all the thing he robbed are useless for him lolllll, but he wasted my RM110 to redo new identity card -.-)
Luckily I had some senses that it is better to put my money and phone in my pocket so my trip can still continue. To be honest, the experience is good for me, because if I get robbed in other place, maybe more valuable things will lost. And we are more careful throughout the journey. I learned that misfortunes happen and there are cruel people in this world, but it’s important to not close yourself off and lose trust in humanity when bad things happen. It is important to always follow your gut and remember that with every misfortune comes good-fortune and that there are kind, generous and loving people in this world. I meet a lot of kind, generous and loving people in this trip too!

Why I Learn This

...381) did the team choose? Would a different form of task interdependence been more effective? They used pooled interdependence method whereas, every member does their own assigned part. A more effective task interdependence would be reciprocal. Reason being the team would have been assigned a part that he/she specialized in that way you would get a good response and work ethic out of them. 2. Was there a high degree of goal interdependence (p. 384) on the team? What could the team have done to increase goal interdependence? No there wasn’t because everybody didn’t do what was assigned to them. This team could have be more serious about this project and made it a top priority in their “to do” list. Some member didn’t show up to the meeting to complete the project. The quality of the project could have been more effective if the team would have treated it like something important. 3. Teamwork processes (p. 420) are important in helping teams be effective. Evaluate the team on all three types of teamwork processes, transition, action and interpersonal. In transition processes, the team did poorly in because they didn’t plan the process that they were going to face. I would have to say that they did bad in action processes to because no one didn’t keep up with the progress of each other and their position on their part of the assignment. Interpersonal process wasn’t like it should have been. The team had a lot of conflict with each other and frustration build up....

...Isabel Mendoza English 12 S1 Anna Dowlen 12 May 2016 Odysseus the Hero By definition, a hero is someone who is admired for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Odysseus represents the definition of an archetypal hero gorgeously merely from the fact that he receives super-natural help from the gods. He resembles his home (Ithaca) in the way that puts him as the main protagonist based upon his exceptional morals, which were considered to be boundless courage and respect for the gods and their traditions. With his outstanding qualities he is looked upon for guidance throughout the story as he tries to overcome the many obstacles that stand in his way as well. Odysseus is an archetypal hero mainly from the fact that he receives help from the gods. For example, Euanthes who grants Odysseus in his trouble gifts that will get him and his crew the opportunity to regain their strength. He also receives help from an entity named Dawn. In a way this character represents Odysseus and almost foretells the struggles he will later be facing. In a section he introduces this entity, “Young Dawn with her rose-red fingers shone once more we all turned out, intrigued to tour the island.” From there we can see the struggles he faces with himself to overcome the many obstacles that Zeus inflicts on Odysseus in hopes to prevent his journey to go any further. Another characteristic of an archetypal character is one in which all heroes contain a flaw that prevents them...

...In my life there have been many occasions to get absolutely whiskey bent. You know, to wake up and essentially set the goal to get black out drunk with nothing but bourbon and cheap smiles in mind. Knowing my whiskey habit, my 21st was set to be a momentous day in whiskey drinking’s fantastic history. On my 21st I blacked out at 930 and didn’t get home till 2am (last sighting at least). Apparently in my stupor (like I said, it was a great day for whiskey drinking and I put on a clinic) I invited two different girls over to my house on my walk home with my friends from the bar. It really was a great birthday, I got really drunk all day all over the place so I remember very little in nothing but fragmented blurs. And oh yeah, the only bad part was that my house got robbed latter that night. This is what I do remember: I woke up wide-awake at 7:30 am so dehydrated that I could barely move or open my eyes. I’m fully dressed with my shoes still on, laying face down on top of the sheets with my contacts in and everything on my nightstand had been thrown across the floor. Jolted awake by the harsh reality of morning, I began to try to remember what happened the night before but I can’t get past that familiar yet fine taste of bourbon that has come to welcome me in the morning as often as the sun’s light. My next move seems obvious. I should go down stairs, get wicked high and chug water to recover and start to piece together the night. Once I got downstairs I saw that my......

A Community Problem

...Property theft has been one of the greatest problems faced by every community aside from drugs and homicide. In the community where I live, property theft has always been an issue. Day after day, more houses were being robbed in broad daylight. If there is a case of property theft; properties are broken and stolen, fear was developed among victims and trust among neighbors was compromised. Property theft caused victims property damage and loss. Usually, if there was a robbery in a house, thieves break windows or doors to get in the home which causes property damage. Aside from the damage being done, the theft victim will be at loss; household appliances, jewelry and money are the most common interest of these thieves. Theft also causes fear among the victims.

Micheal Brown Case

... 1 Michael Brown’s Case Kahlandra Walton MS Palmer High School English I January 5, 2015 Michael Brown’s Case 2 On the timing and day of the case Teenager Michael Brown had recently robbed a convenient store and wasn’t running but walking down the street with his friend. An on-duty police officer recognized the teens walking from the description the dispatcher had given him. It was reported by some eye witnesses that Michael had been harassing the police officer and banging on his squad car window. Keep in mind Michael Brown is 6”2 and the police officer described the experience of Brown standing over him to be “Like a toddler holding onto Hulk Hogan.” The police officer said he felt as if Brown was trying to imitate him in a way. The boy that had been reportedly walking down the road with Michael had taken off to running after he had handed him the cigarillos they had just stolen from the store up the road. The boy told police he ran because he saw them start to fight and the bullets being shot. Michael did not live to be able to state his version of the story, but his autopsy spoke it all.

...We know that Jake runs a Delicatessen store in a high-crime section of the city. We know that he was robbed eight times in one year. We know that he obtained a permit and bought a pistol. We also know that a man came into the store brandishing a knife asking him for all the money in the cash register. We know that Jake moved towards the register and instead of opening it, he went for his weapon and without warning opened fire hitting the robber. What we don’t know if the permit was obtained legally. He could have gotten the permit by not going through the proper channels making him discharging his weapon illegally. What we don’t know if Jake was premeditated in his actions. Jake has been robbed multiple times and he may have believed the next time there’s an encounter he’s going to discharge his gun and ask questions later. Jake’s action wasn’t ethical, the fact that he pulled his weapon and point blank shot a person at point blank range isn’t justifiable. It’s understandable that he has been victimized many times in one year but that doesn’t give him a right to pull the trigger and shooting six times at that. He didn’t give the robber a warning shot or told him that he will pull the trigger if he doesn’t put his knife down. Just the simple fact that the robber was carrying knife he should’ve considered not shooting. Jake could’ve handle it by telling warning the robber to stop or he’ll shoot. There was no warning and I believe Jake had the upper hand in this......

Crime in Bahamas

...A cruise-ship passenger gets robbed at gunpoint by thugs in the Bahamas, raising the important question, How safe are you while on vacation? Offending Party: Bahamian criminals What's at Stake: a few hundred dollars The Complaint: As reader Carly Milne found out, nothing can ruin a holiday faster than armed robbery. (Though dysentery and street mimes run pretty close behind.) Last November, Milne says, she and 17 other Bahamas cruise-ship passengers were accosted by gun-toting criminals during two separate onshore excursions in Nassau. The passengers, who were traveling aboard Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Line ships, were all scooting around the island on Segways (on ship-sponsored tours) when they were robbed of their money, passports and cell phones. Milne reported the incident to the police and later contacted the Avenger, hoping to get the word out about the rising crime rate in a popular stop for American tourists. The Outcome: None of the passengers were injured, and all were compensated by the cruise lines. But it seems they are not alone in being victimized in the Bahamas. The national crime rate has been rising there in recent years, alarming the government and its tourist board. The Bahamian murder rate hit record highs during two of the past three years, and the country's crime rate appears to be ascending in 2010. Crime was up 17% in the first quarter of this year, with an 18% jump in armed robberies (to 224, up from 190 in the same period in......

Bonnie and Clyde

...Abstract In the opinion of most Bonnie and Clyde where the most famous and most romantically involved criminals in American history, Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow were two young Texans having and early 1930s crime spree before my time of birth would forever leave their legacy to be criticized by many and envied by most. Most people only live to tell the story of what was expected, but I am here to state the facts of who Bonnie and Clyde really were, grasping your attention, making your mind run full with imagination and placing yourself in the era owned by Bonnie and Clyde the 1930's. Bonnie Elizabeth Parker born October 01, 1910, Clyde Chestnut Barrow born March 24, 1909, both from Dallas, Texas and ambushed in Bienville Parrish, Louisiana on May 23, 1934 killed at least nine officers and other civilians, leaving Bonnie to always have her name placed first in the matter, as do to respect that ladies always come first. As most would lead you to believe by all the hype, what they say was a reality for the two young lovers, this let's the listener carry the idea of Bonnie and Clyde in all their fancy clothes, and broke all the rules of the norm. Bonnie and Clyde never feared the law and lived a life of infamous luxury keeping them on the run. Reality was different, Bonnie and Clyde and the Barrow gang lived a hard, uneasy life left by narrow escapes, botched robberies, injury, and murder. They became one of the first outlaw media stars......

The Mysterious Tomb of Queen Hetepheres

...February of 1925, people have been trying to restore its historic scenario as it was built and arguing about whether it is the true and original tomb of the queen, as many aspects of the tomb are unclear and confusing. The missing superstructure, the reverse arrangement order of furniture, the obviously hasty state of the chamber, the empty sarcophagus, and full ceremonies in the shaft are reasons why Egyptologists debate about how to interpret the tomb. Two well-known Egyptologists, George Andrew Reisner, the director of the excavation, and Mark Lehner, proposed two opposing reconstructions to explain them. While Reisner believed that the shaft, registered as G 7000 X, is a reburial tomb of the robbed one near the pyramid of Hetepheres’ husband Snefru, Lehner suggested that G 7000 X is her original tomb and her body was moved to G I a, one the three queen’s pyramids to the east of the pyramid of her Khufu, due to change of the plan for his cemetery. Looking through the pictures of the tomb and two Egyptologists’ scientific publication, Lehner’s theory seems more convincing since it has more convincing arguments that are more in accordance with ancient Egyptian funerary traditions. No superstructure was found on the surface above G 7000 X and “there was nothing to indicate the burial place of the king’s mother” (Reisner 1927, 34). If it were not Reisner’s photographer who discovered the shaft by coincidence, the tomb of Hetepheres might have been buried deep underground......

Gun Control

...Gun Control Weapons have been with us for a very long time. Longer than anyone can remember. It has become part of our constitution and a legal matter. It is made legal by the constitution and many other laws passed that require many steps to obtain a firearm. Although it is stated to be legal many people oppose the issue and I am one of them. Tens of thousands of people are killed every year by illegal guns thrown on the streets. There is never any gain from guns because someone always ends up dying for the right and wrong reasons. There are many ways to punish someone without the use of guns. Almost every day we hear a story in the paper or on the news about a fatality involving guns. One day it’s a little boy that shot himself or his cousin while playing with his father’s gun. Another day it’s a drive by shooting that killed a mother and her little kid. If guns were illegal then many people would still be alive. The United States of America has the highest gun death in the world, and its leading the other ranking countries by a very wide gap. If guns were illegal in the United States, and strict rules were enforced against those who are caught with a gun many people would fear the consequences and think twice about committing a crime with a gun. At that point criminals would face a much tougher decision whether to commit a crime or not. Many people make the argument that guns are for safety purposes and they should be kept in every house, but as statistics show...

Materialistic Teenagers

...Are Teenagers Too Materialistic? “I would be happier if I had more money to buy more things for myself” as said by more than 70 percent of teenagers in the U.S. in a survey taken by market researcher Harris Interactive. We all know or have friends that would say the same exact thing when it comes to buying materialistic items. Are today’s teenagers really too materialistic? What could possibly be the reasons behind this obsession of wanting the latest material items? Maybe it’s to portray an image that the media is constantly advertising about. It could also be that they are trying to maintain an image amongst their peers of the same clique. There are many negative consequences of being too materialistic due to focus on items more than themselves. Teenagers tend to value material items more than they value learning and becoming a better person. One of the biggest influences on teenagers nowadays is the media. They manipulate our teenagers into buying the newest and latest trends. Many studies have shown that television presents an unrealistic picture of many aspects of the American life. Celebrity endorsers may be influential because they are viewed as highly dynamic and they have attractive and likeable qualities, which teenagers are attracted to. Teenagers think that by buying the newest Apple iPhones that they see advertised by the media, they will fit in their social groups or be the coolest kids at school. Teenagers will spend money that they don’t have to buy......
