SH 5205 - Incident Management

This is an open book exam, which means that the question answers are not found in lecture notes. What the lecturer expects is that student must apply the theory to the scenario given. 4 questions of 25 marks each. Tough questions that need a little bit of thinking to answer to the point with reference to the case study given. I manage to answer all questions, but I really have no gauge on how well I have fared. It seems that I have hit most of the point, but miss out on some other details. I think I won't do really well for this, but unlikely I will fail this module.
Expectation: B- (Actual: B)

Olympus Has Fallen

Synopsis: When the White House (Secret Service Code: "Olympus") is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning's inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.

It has been a long time since Hollywood comes out a military action film that's decent. Combining intense action, close combats and never ending suspense into one, this film is worth all your money to spend 120mins with. I must say it is quite ridiculous at the start to let an unidentified airplane to be so near the white house and its 2x response fighter jets got shot down without much of a fight. But the after action of retaking the white house and fighting mind games with the terrorist is a joy to watch. In summary, this movie is a strong recommend.
Rate: 8/10

Assignments Crunch Week

After this semester, I shall always remember these toxic chemicals in the environment: PCDD/Fs, DL-PCBs, PBDE-49, PBDE-99, PBDE-209.

Most amazingly of all, they are all man-made, bio-accumulative in the seafood we eat, get stuck in the lipids of our body, and ultimately, causing us to malfunction, if present in a high enough concentration. The side effects of technology advancement and industrialization....
