My dad always complained to me that why do I have to choose to become a physiotherapist instead of becoming a doctor, well, in the beginning. It did hurt my feelings sometimes but I do know that he was only joking. I can take that joke because my dad's occupation is not within the science stream but what makes me really pissed of is when there's a few people who are in the health science & medical stream look down on our course & this profession. ooooo!!!!! I wished that they will be sorry for doing that!! anyway, peace, no war!

A cemetery of radioactive vehicles is seen near Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear power plant in this November 10, 2000 photo. More than 1,300 Soviet military helicopters, buses, bulldozers, and other equipment were used and contaminated while responding to the April 26, 1986 nuclear accident at Chernobyl.
The disaster's residual effects and its potential for future environmental and health damage has landed Chernobyl on the New York-based Blacksmith Institute's 2007 list of the ten most polluted sites.
