All along, Michael Steven Sparks (Evil Twin) had been very jealous of Albert Steven Sparks. Albert had everything. He had fame, power, money and love. He owns a huge diamond company and had a happy family. He wants all of it! He wants to take over everything!! They were once best brothers, like best friends…

Dr. James: One day, Albert Steven Sparks (Real) fell sick and was lying in bed. I was in charge of this patient. Each day, Michael Steven Sparks would come to visit him. I thought to myself, how blessed is Albert to have such a great brother who is always being there to look after him.

Ian: *nods his head and continues to listen*

Dr. James: Though I see how well they were together, but I noticed that day by day, Albert was getting weaker and weaker.

Ian: Was Michael behind all of these? Did the daughter know about this?

Dr. James: Albert didn’t want her daughter to be worried; so he told him that he was just going on a vacation for a few months. But one day, as I was passing by the ward, I saw Michael secretly injected…some kind of fluid or vaccine into his blood. I was terrified! He saw me…I told me not to tell anyone if not he will kill me! And then the next day, Albert Steven Sparks died due to a chronic disease.

Ian: Whaaat??!! How evil and heartless is he!!!

Dr. James: He threatened me to fake his death, telling that it was Michael Steven Sparks that had died. I was the one who did the paperwork… I had been keeping this secret for years! I was afraid that the ghost of Albert Steven Sparks would come and haunt me!!

Ian: So are you saying that Annabelle was not his own flesh and blood?! Ohmy…how could this happen… what if she knows the truth of her father…*slowly backs out and held his fist*

Dr. James: He gave me a huge sum of money to keep my mouth shut for the rest of my life. And now, because I couldn’t betray my conscience and guilt… I hope you will be able to protect the one you love. Go forth!

Ian: *sighs* I will! Thank you, Dr. James! I will surely capture this cruel and inhuman person and let him suffer!!

Force Des Religions

...A quoi tient la force des religions? Les religions existent depuis toujours, en effet on a retrouvé des traces de rites datant des premiers hommes sur la Terre. Au cours du temps les religions ont pris des formes différentes, mais elles restent toujours présentes, encrées dans nos sociétés. Étrangement on pourrait penser que plus la science avance et plus la religion sombre, or on ne peut que constater son omniprésence même dans un monde où les valeurs semblent loin de nos esprits. On peut alors se demander « à quoi tient la force des religions? » Tout d'abord, les religions sont des croyances en une ou plusieurs puissances divines qui sont fondées sur des écritures et accompagnées de rites. La force est le fait d'être puissant, d'avoir de l'influence sur des personnes. La force peut donc vouloir dire danger si elle est utilisée sans démesure. On va alors se demander comment et pourquoi les religions sont-elles aussi puissantes. La force de la religion tient-elle de son utilité? Faut-il en avoir peur? On constatera dans un premier temps que les religions apportent des réponses à des questions,qui ne peuvent être résolues par la science mais aussi qu'elles apportent protection et bonheur. Ensuite on verra que les religions sont utiles à la société. Pour terminer on déterminera en quoi les religions peuvent devenir dangereuses. La religion apporte des connaissances, en effet elle donne à l'homme un savoir qui lui permet de comprendre son origine ainsi que celle de son......

Mas Privatisation

...15% Title of essay: On 8 August 2014, Khazanah National announced plans to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an attempt to revive the national carrier as it was struggling financially. Without doubt, the twin aviation disasters, MH370 and MH17, have also further contributed negatively towards MAS financials. The former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the national flag carrier should be privatised as it is running at a loss. The Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu), on the other hand, strongly stated that they will only support the privatisation of MAS if there is to be a new management team. In the past 12 years, MAS has undertaken about half-a-dozen restructuring exercises. Considering its current situation, the idea to privatise is seen as a necessity. In your opinion, can MAS turn itself around if it is now to be privatised? Why or why not? Justify your stand and support your arguments with reasons and examples. You should write between 600 and 650 words. Instructor: Mrs Anuratha Murugagoo On 8 August 2014, Khazanah Nasional Berhad (“Khazanah”) proposed an official petition to the Board of Directors of Malaysian Airline System Berhad (“MAS”) to handle a particular capital cutback and refund apply (“Proposed SCR”) of MAS’ ordinary shares.

...1 How are forces described ? In sciece the word push or a pull when one object pushes or pulls another object the first object exerts a force on the second object you exert a force on a computer key when you push it you exert a force on a chair when you pull it away from a table like velocity and acceleration a force is described by its strength and by the direction in which it acts pushing to the left is a different force from pushing to the right the direction and strength of the force can be represented by an arrow the arrow points in the direction of the force as shown in figure 1 length of the arrow tells you strength of the force the longer the arrow the greater the force the strength of a force is measured in the si unit called newton after sir isac newton How do forces affect newton often more than one force acts on an object at the same time the combination of all forces on an object is called net force the net force determines if and how an object accelerates you can find the net force by finding the sum of all the strengths of individual forces acting on the object look at figure 2a the big dog pushes on the box with a force of 16n to the tight the small with a force of 10 n to the right the net force on the box is the sum of these forces the box will accelerate to the right in the situation there is a non zero net force a non zero netforce causes a change in the objects motion What if the forces on an......

...Force Diatra Farasha In physics, a force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change, either concerning its movement, direction, or geometrical construction. It is measured with the SI unit of newtons and represented by the symbol F. In other words, a force is that which can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e., to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity. The original form of Newton's second law states that the net force acting upon an object is equal to the rate at which its momentum changes. This law is further given to mean that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object, is in the direction of the net force, and is inversely proportional the mass of the object. As a formula, this is expressed as: Related concepts to force include: thrust, which increases the velocity of an object; drag, which decreases the velocity of an object; and torque which produces changes in rotational speed of an object. Forces which do not act uniformly on all parts of a body will also cause mechanical stresses, a technical term for influences which cause deformation of matter. While mechanical stress can remain embedded in a solid object, gradually deforming it, mechanical stress in a......
