DIRECTED WRITING:ACCIDENTS CAUSES AND PREVENTIONS

                                                 Accidents-causes and preventions
                                                  By: SitiMunirahBtMohdSaufi

Nowadays,accident  is a common word among the society.This is because,accidents almost happen every day,every time and every minutes whether in the city or in the countryside.The roads and highways are no more safe because many tragic and appaling accidents occurred on the roads and the highways.The situation is so frightening especially during festive seasons and weekends.We can read all about the horror accidents in newspaper and television from day to day.it is sorely sad to know that our loved ones and innocent people die due to the inconsiderate epitome of drivers.In question,how long do we need to face all  these fatal deaths?
Besides,nobody wants to be a casualty in the tragic accidents.Thus,as a concerned citizen,I would like to share on the causes and how to go about preventing the accidents.First  and foremost,the major cause that make accident happen is the epitome of drivers.The drivers should alter their epitome while using the roads and highways.They ought to be patient and curb their emotions especially when traffic jams are created.They should not be angry and blame the other road users just because they are in hurry to go to their destination on time.Usually,some of the drivers who are selfish,they do not comply to traffic rules and regulation and speed up while using their phones disregarding the other road users.Their action may harm many other road users and cause an accident.
   On top of that,accidents also can happen when the drivers are not in a good and well condition.For an example,when the drivers are in a run-down,sleepy and drunk while driving,so they will lost their focus.It is highly risk that they will collide with the other road users and cause a tragic accident.Moreover,it is imperil for those who are driving heavy vehicle such as lorries,buses and others in sleepy condition especially in the midnight will cause a fatal accident.
   Another factor that cause accident happen is because there are many potholes on the road which is not well maintained.When there is no street lights and signboards so that the drivers do not know which direction they want to go and they cannot drive carefully in the dark condition without street lights on the roads and highways.It will cause difficulty to the drivers and motorcyclists to drive and the possibility of accidents to happen is higher.
   Apart from that,there are many ways to overcome accidents.We must be smart and wise while driving on the roads and highways.So,to be a smart road user,we should drive carefully and be patient when we are trapped in traffic jams.In addition,we also must follow the rules and regulation.We need to turn over a new leaf to avoid from tragic accidents.We ought to change our epitome and do care about other road users.We cannot do what we want to do when we are driving on the roads such as speeding or racing because there is a maxim that goes, it is better to be safe than sorry.This is because we can never know what will happen in the future.
Furthermore,it is not only the road users who need to change but the government also need to implement their duties by repairing the roads and highways.So that,it is more safe for the drivers and motorcyclists to drive and ride.The government also need to provide signboards,street lights and others to make easier for the road users from being involved in accidents.They should penalize some drivers and motorcyclists who impinge the rules and regulation when driving such as hitting the red traffic light,driving at high speed,driving without license and others delinquency.
   When all is said and done,we must think wisely before we are going to do something because the saying  goes ,an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.We should work hand in hand in order to reduce the  rate of accidents in our country.Bear in mind,actions speak louder than words.We ought to be a smart road user and not be a selfish road user.So,we must ensure that we are alert at all times when we use the roads and highways.

DIRECTED WRITING:CRIME PREVENTION

                                                            Crime Prevention
                                                      By:Izzati Akhtar Bt Mohd Tajuddin

These days crimes almost happened every hour in our country.We can read about these crimes in newspapers and articles in the Internet and also watch them on television.These crimes which include robbery,kidnapping,extortion,snatch-thefts,raping and many others are obviously frightening and alarming..These crimes are committed by desperate people and they are ruthless and merciless which may cost lives and properties.Some too caused permanent injuries.Therefore it is important for us to be united and cooperate with our neighbours to combat these crimes and  never let them happen in front of our eyes.

Firstly it is important to be close to our neighbours.Then we can plan the patrolling schedules among our neighbourhood.These schedules can be done on every alternate days probably from 10p.m onwards and every neighbour must take turn to patrol.If the crime is too often,then the patrolling schedule can be further tighten up with the assistance of Police.Furthermore,it is advisable to promote campaign on crime prevention by distributing pamphlets or leaflets on ‘Ways to prevent crimes’Every neighbour must be duly informed of latest happening in the neighbourhood.Other useful information can be displayed on the leaflet such as the neighbours phone numbers,latest statistics on the crimes in the areas and pictures of  suspicious strangers and vehicles.Meanwhile the neighbours are encouraged for  monthly tea-party  gathering to ensure the neighbours are closer to each other and exchange telephone numbers.Talks on crimes can also be done by calling guest speakers. With all these promotions,the crimes can be minimized.

Apart from that,it is encouraged for you to take up any forms of martial arts specifically to defend you and your family from possible attackers.Popular ones such as tea-kwan do,silat,Muay-thai
karate,judo and others  are easily available at any martial-arts centre.All you need to do is to find the one that suits you.The female are advised to carry whistle and pepper spray..This will at least blinded the attackers for a while before the police can take further action.Be alert that sometimes the attackers carry with them sharp weapon so it is advisable not to be too close to them.

Your home is always the potential place for criminals to come and rob you.So be always alert to lock all doors and windows especially when you travel outstation.Leave a short note to the police to inform them on the empty house and they should be able to make their rounds.Put the lights on  especially the back lane,garage and front entrance.Better still if you can afford to  install CCTV or alarm.This will probably frighten the criminal and deter them to come closer to your residence.

Whatever your preventions are,the police must always be on the top list.If you suspect of any  suspicious characters loitering in your neighbourhood,take no chances and quickly report to the police.Crime is frightening and avoid it at all cost.No crime makes you happy and you can share all your joys with your loved ones and your neighbours.    

 

DIRECTED WRITING: ACCIDENTS -CAUSES AND PREVENTIONS-SPM 2015

                                                   Accidents:Causes and Preventions
                                                   By:Siti Suhana Bt Mohd Izzany

Accidents are common reports in all major newspapers.The  daily accidents  rates are increasing and this is alarming and frightening.You may see those tragic deaths reported in newspapers and shown on televisions and this is certainly making  us,the innocent people as victims by  those careless and inconsiderate drivers.So where do we go from here?Remember those days, twenty to thirty years ago when your neighbour died of accidents,it was something which you called fated,unavoidable and uncommon.But today when you hear people died of accidents,you said,“This is a common accident, it happens everyday and everywhere, people died due to accident easily and your turn maybe next!”Isn’t this statement frightening?

The more pressing problem are drivers especially the younger ones who like to show off their new acquired machines and drive at high speed as though they are the ‘King of the road”.They speed up on the roads and highways and ignoring all the traffic rules and regulations.Some like to send messages while riding on  the motorcycle and  most motorists are often caught on their mobiles phones.These are blatant mistakes on the roads and leading to carelessness,recklessness and ignorance.Therefore  these drivers and motorcyclists need to be taught to have good,considerate road manners and ofcourse courtesy. Otherwise it is a matter of time that their dead bodies  too would be collected at mortuary.Apart from that,most drivers today are well-known for their  selfishness and do not drive defensively.They like to challenge each other especially those driving big vehicles such as big lorries,containers, tankers and express buses.They would speed and zig-zag along the highways after midnight as though they are the only ‘vehicles’ on the road.They would put on challenges among each other and as a result you can see many daring and breathtaking races on the highways.The other road users are practically bullied  by them.These smaller and innocent drivers do not dare to overtake because of impending dangers that they may face. Moreover some of the heavy vehicles such as big lorries and tankers,they  are carrying more than the allowable weight.As a result they do not give priority on road safety.Thus accidents do happen and it is almost impossible to  avoid.That is why you can easily spot   many heavy vehicles skidded and overturned on the roads and  highways.Another point of concern are those drunk,sleepy and tired  drivers.Logically they should stop at any rest and recreation centre  for a short nap and rest and then continue with their journey.But many just ignore because they want to rush for more overtime and extra trips to earn more money.Hence their acts are jeopardizing the safety of other road users.Another instance is drivers who are addicted to drugs.They are also the cause of major accidents on the highways.These drivers should be completely banned on the roads and highways as they posed too much danger to other road users.

The maintainence of roads and highways is another factor that caused the accidents.Some roads and highways are poorly maintained with many potholes which endanger the safety of road users.Many parts of the roads and highways are without street lights and this is obviously dangerous.Proper sign boards to indicate the conditions of the roads such as sharp corners ahead and some people at work repairing the piping system or others also not displayed.Older vehicles which are not serviced or poor brake system and no proper signal lights are also contributing to accidents.

For reasons mentioned above obviously I am very concerned and getting worried day by day.If the situation does not improve and  authorities such as JPJ,Police Traffic and other authorised agency must act fast and regularly.They do not carry the enforcement only during festive seasons such as Hari Raya and Chinese New Year but  they must carry out throughout the year.Otherwise you will hear more deaths minutes by minutes and day by day.The drivers must change their habits and attitudes.They must abide by the traffic rules and regulations.Heavier penalties and jailed term must be add to the existing law.If irresponsible and careless driver who caused deaths to other road users,they must be penalized to the maximun such as RM10000 fine,10years jail and licence suspended for more than 10 years. Unfortunately the government have not yet amend these laws and drivers are still driving dangerously. Licence for those eligible to be be given upon reaching 21 years old. At this age,it is hope that the motorists and motorcyclists  would act rationally and do not be too hasty and hostile on the roads.apart from that the vehicles,roads and highways must be on regular basis to avoid any untoward incidents.      

Finally,prevention can only happen if and only the motorists and motorcyclists change their habits and attitudes.Remember the loved ones at home and this slogan may put them on alert on dangers that they may go through.Avoid ‘hanky panky’ or any forms of bribery if you are caught otherwise you may repat the same offences and continue to break the rules.Let us now put all efforts to prevent and reduce these tragic tragedies.

     Sometimes, you must think who exactly should read, right? Is it someone who will face examination? The answer is not, definitely not. Reading is not only for those students who will face examination but for everyone. Whether children, students on primary or secondary, teenagers, adults and even the aged. You also have to remember to choose the types of reading materials. Make sure it is suitable for your age, mood and the impact from the reading materials. Some books may bring a negative effect in our life especially the novels and magazines nowadays.
     When you are going to read, please set the best time to read. In the late afternoon, time from past noon till dusk is not suitable for us to read. In this time, Earth's pressure is too high until everyone easily feel stress and tired. The best time to read is on the midnight, three fourth night at around two o'clock. An hour study is similarly four hours study in the afternoon. When we read, we can learn about other's people culture. This is such an interesting knowledge especially we are as Malaysians that live in numerous nation with full of peacefulness. Usually this sources of knowledge can be found in documentary's books. Apart from that, we are also able to learn about life, people's joy and sorrow. We can take some moral values from others' life so that we will never do that and impenitent in the future.
     Furthermore, we can also learn new words from our reading especially in the newspaper. They always use new words in the articles so that their sentences will be dramatic and the readers will be excited to read. This will improve our vocabulary especially in our writing. Reading also fill-up your leisure time. It's better than you do something that cannot give you benefit at all and have many negative impact  such as playing play-station games, surfing social networks for leisure and others.
     In addition, reading also improve one's language as we are always use our mother tongue language, Malay language. English language is well-known,established worldwide. This language helps you to communicate with many people via e-mails, phones, sms and video conferencing. Beside that, someone who love to read will get new knowledge through their reading.

Lastly, you are able to share your knowledge with your sisters, friends at the school and in the social networks such as Facebook, Whats App ,Twitter and so on. This will help them to be more knowledgeable as you are.

DIRECTED WRITING:HOW TO KEEP YOURSELF FIT AND HEALTHY

                                                       Keeping yourself fit and healthy
                                                     By: Noor Imani Binti Mohd Zaki
                       Health is wealth. This is one of the most famous adage that has been used by almost people especially among the students. But many of us do not know what it really means. We should all agree with this saying as health is essential for us to have a better life. Thus,we have to take care of our health to stay as fit as a fiddle. By taking care of our health,we can avoid ourself from getting infected from deadly  diseases such as diabetes,high blood pressure and leading to  obesity which can affect our lives. Do you know how to keep ourself fit and healthy? Let me share some ways that will help us keeping fit. 
          
                    First and foremost,all we need to do is we must conduct regular exercises. For instance,we can do a brisk walking or jogging during our free time. Exercising in the morning can leave us with a refreshed feeling throughout the day and can put us in a good mental health.Thus,it can help us in our study as we will be able to generate ideas and think creatively.We should go for activities that we enjoy and not force ourself to activities that we despise. On top of that,we have to update the information about health by reading materials on health and supplementary copies.If we always update the information,we will know better about the diseases,the effect and preventing steps. We must visit the doctor regularly for preventive care.Don't wait until we are sick to talk to the doctor.Regular medical check up should be done to test blood,cholesterol and many others that can help keep our healthy.Apart from that,we should also avoid ourself from unbeneficial activities such as drug intake,smoking and illegal racing.Yet  OTHER things that we should better avoid are wasting time on social network activities,playing games and watching tv too long.We will be in trouble if we do not avoid these bad activities.
                  We are what we eat.Therefore,we should take in a balanced diet that can promote good health,prevent diseases and help us recover faster from illnesses.We have to consume a healthy and nutritious food such as vegetables,fruits and nuts.Bear in mind to take 8 glasses of plain water daily.We can see that Malaysians are mostly influenced by the mouth-watering junk and fast food.Even though,they are  finger-licking good,but they are  not good for health in the long run.Changing our bad diet will contribute a great difference for our health. As we all know,pevention is better than cure.
                 Besides,it is as easy as ABC to keep ourself  fit and healthy by having a good and adequate sleep.People nowadays are very busy with their own activities until they tend to  neglect  their health conditions. As a student,a good and adequate sleep is very important for us.We need to get enough sleep to stay focused in class and we should not burn the midnight oil to study.We are advised to sleep at least seven to eight hours per day.By following this advice,we will not feel sleepy in class. A good sleep can refresh our mind and make us feel healthier.
          Finally,we should realise the importance of keeping ourself fit and healthy. We should turn over a new leaf if we do not bother  about our health all this while.As a new generation who will take over the country,we should take care of our health for a better future because we are the leaders of tomorrow.
