was promoted to chief executive officer of a company after several years of employment and schooling. I worked over sixty hours a week, I was sleep deprived, and I didn 't spend much time on leisure.

I picked up my suitcase and started walking towards the sign that welcomed the visitors.

Part Two – The “Dual” Approach
In the face of these flaws, this essay proposes a “dual” approach would be more effective in enhancing both human and state security. This “dual” approach recognizes the synchronicity of Human Security and State security, meaning that the relationship between the two concepts is less of a “cause and effect” relationship, but rather that the advancement of one is likely to relate to the advancement of the other, and the degradation of one will likely result in the…
