Description of Project
It takes 90 seconds or less for a car thief to take your vehicle. It is no longer enough to just roll-up your windows and lock your doors. Although few stolen vehicles are recovered within 48 -72 hours, the damage has already been done.
The Spartahouse City Council in collaboration with the Spartahouse Police Department is encouraging residents to protect their vehicles. This is due to the fact that Incidents of Grand Theft Auto in the city have spiked by over 35% over the last year. There is work to be done to educate citizens on how to protect their vehicles to reduce this particular crime even more. The council has been approached by the National Motor vehicle Theft Reduction Organization NMTRO and has planned to launch a campaign entitled “PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE". The program is specifically targeted at encouraging owners of high risk vehicles to install immobilizers and other antitheft devices.
NMTRO works with other stakeholders to develop and implement countermeasures that will impede the activities of organized criminals.
In the city and surrounding suburbs, any make or model of car is subject to theft. Toyota and Nissan models made between 2005 and 2012 and Honda products are the most vulnerable for being stolen.
The City has hired a team of specialist to analyze the car stealing situation in the city. They need to have an idea of the magnitude of the car stealing situation in order to provide preventative measures. In the past the City council distributed free immobilizers to owners of high risk vehicles after receiving a grant from the NMTRO. A repeat of this venture is being considered.
The insurance companies are also interested in these results since the recent trends is causing them to consider raising the premiums and introducing penalties based on the number of car owners who fail to install antitheft devices on their vehicles. They also require a program based on the study to assist their business in helping with the data collection and the necessary calculations with reference to premiums and payments.
At the end of this analysis, a report is to be presented to the Mayor and other relevant parties including NMTRO and the insurance companies.
A pamphlet on Tips to Avoid Auto Theft will be made available to the public as a part of the Operation Bounce Back Project. Candidates are required to utilized Word processing, Database, Spreadsheet and Programming packages to efficiently carry out the required activities.

MILLET MR. RYAN JASON DELOS REYES WRITING IN DISCIPLINE ENGLISH INSTRUCTOR BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCTION In education, student engagement refers to the degree of attention, curiosity, interest, optimism, and passion that students show when they are learning or being taught, which extends to the level of motivation they have to learn and progress in their education. Generally speaking, the concept of “student engagement” is predicated on the belief that learning improves when students are inquisitive, interested, or inspired, and that learning tends to suffer when students are bored, dispassionate, disaffected, or otherwise “disengaged.” Stronger student engagement or improved student engagement are common instructional objectives expressed by educators. In education, the term student engagement has grown in popularity in recent decades, most likely resulting from an increased understanding of the role that certain intellectual, emotional, behavioral, physical, and social factors play in the learning process. For example, a wide variety of research studies on learning have revealed connections between so-called “non-cognitive factors” or “non-cognitive skills” (e.g., motivation, interest, curiosity, responsibility, determination, perseverance,......
