    Q1, What is a curriculum vitae?
    It’s mean something like a resume that shows you what kinds of the parson who you are. What kinds of degree they got from Unversity or where do you work now. Curriculum vitae, a document, which lists information about a person’s education, work experience, and qualifications. People applying for a job are usually to send in their CV(Curriculum vitae).

    What does it normally list and for whom?
    Normally, there is no crime experience, usually they graduated from university, got a job, earn some money and living an ordinary life. This CV list is for employee who decide to hire the person or not. The list for personnel affairs.

    Q2, What is ironic about this?
    The irony talked about the person who work at the Harbour Light associate as a executive director. Gray Johnson asked if crime can be addictive, and he said “Absolutely” without no hesitation. Usually he should say “I don’t think so.” or “I objected to the matter.” But he said “I agree with that.” That is the thing that I think ironic about this article.

  2. Eri says:

    Q2, Harbour Light associate usually help the person who has alcohol addiction, however they steals Alcoholics Anonymous program. Maybe this is the ironic??? I really don’t understand.
    This is difficult question I think…..

    – What is a curriculum vitae?
    It is a brief biographical of a someone’s education background, qualifications, and previous experience, typically sent with a job application.

    – What does it normally list and for whom?
    In one’s life, we don’t know who used involve with crime. It normally list about someone’s background since they start school. They list is for someone who will work or hire those people to make the decision.

    What is ironic about this?
    I think the ironic is that the they don’t have any good experience, and they do so hard in stealing something. So it should be there good point.

    I am not sure that it is absolutely right, because it is my own thought.

  6. Kelvin Ng says:

    Ques 3. Because the word addiction is a bad action for having drugs. Yes i agree it. Having drugs.

    Ques 4. People who lack of money, No money. No because a lot of criminal are committing crimes because of lacking money.

  7. Jason Ehliger says:

    Q3: I agree with that.

    Q4: Some reasons are no money, no hope for future, no jobs.
    Most common reason are no money. Mostly they are foreign people who committing crimes.
