"It Ain't over 'till the fat lady sings" and today she's clearing her throat for the final act of the opera this afternoon. It's been fun but today is the end of Semester 1.

Today's schedule is B-A-Lunch-D-C.

B- Earth and Space Science 11 - Today we will finish up our work on the last set of handouts: Stars and Galaxies 2, 3, and 4. While working on these activities this and will watch The Universe DVD episode "The Most Dangerous Place in the Universe". Your final exam is next Wednesday morning so please do some prep work to get ready.

A - Law 12 - Today sees us work on the multiple choice section of our final exam. Today is the last day in Law 12 and so your major civil law case study project is due. Good luck!

D - Geography 12 - Today we will finish the "Six Degrees Could Change the World" DVD from yesterday's class. Remember Cheeseburgers in the United States? The greenhouse gas emissions arising every year from the production and consumption of cheeseburgers is roughly the amount emitted by 6.5 million to 19.6 million Sport Utility Vehicles. This comes from Jamais Cascio's research on cheeseburgers here.

We'll end the class by looking at the potential impacts of climate change on British Columbia and figure out simple things you can do to reduce your carbon imprint. Think 350! Your exam is next Friday in the morning and I'll have breakfast waiting for you in room 611 before the exam.

C - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we will continue looking at your anonymous questions that you always wanted answered about law but were afraid to ask out loud. The class will be shortened (ends at 2:45) because we need to take the desks from the class to the gym in preparation for Exam Week.

Pau Hana!
