Day 29 - Wednesday October 20. 2010

A - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll start the class by quickly finishing our forensics unit in Law. We'll review the extraction and analysis of DNA and talk about its importance in police detective work. For the second half of the class we'll be in the library working on the Rookie Training section of the Rice University CSI Web experience site. I'd like you to mess around and coomplete the training for Forensic Biology (DNA), Toxicology, Firearms and Toolmarks (Ballistics), Medical Examiner (Pathologist) and CSI Ethics. Tomorrow I have the library booked again and you'll have time to work through the intermediate case (Canine Caper). Believe it or not I'd actually like you to work on the Canine Caper and the Burning Star case for homework this weekend. Yes parents that means I'd like Law students to play a computer game for homework this weekend.

C - Law 12 - Today we'll skip ahead in the text to look at violent crime (Chapter 7) and specifically Criminal Code section 229 (homicide). You'll have to work on questions 1-6 on page 190 dealing with culpable and non-culpable homicide in Canada. For the end of class we'll look at two cases R. v. Gosset (1993) on page 183-4 and R. v. Creighton (1993) on page 207.

D - Geography 12 - Today we'll finish Dante's Peak. All the really cool stuff (Volcanic destruction) that happens in the movie starts off pretty quick from where we left off on Monday. You have questions from the movie that are due tomorrow and I'll give you time to answer them after we finish the movie. NOTE: Your Orting, Washington case study is due today and those people that were not here for the unit final yesterday have the class to write it today (in the library). As for the Dante's Peak questions and the acidity of lakes check out George Kourounis' visit to Kawah Ijen, the acidic volcanic lake in Indonesia, to see if Granny had to die in the movie...
