Day 36 - Monday November 1. 2010

C - Law 12 - You will need to get in all of your work from last week (Chapter 7 questions from pages 194 & 199). We'll review all of our work and then discuss criminal negligence, mischief, and enterprise crimes. You'll need to work on questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 201 and Reviewing Key Terms a through j on page 206 in the All About Law text.

D - Geography 12 - Today we're looking at water. The USGS diagram above shows the distribution of water on the planet and explains the amount of water available for "human use". You'll note that there is precious little water available for 6.7 billion people. Then consider that the flora and fauna of the biosphere require water as well and you can see the importance of water to all forms of life on the planet. Today we'll look at the properties of water in its three phases and then you'll need to sketch a diagram of the hydrologic cycle (page 253 in Geosystems). Next you'll need to define: condensation, evaporation, transpiration, precipitation, sublimation, percolation, aquifer, zone of aeration, and zone of saturation. Lastly you'll need to complete questions 2 & 5 from page 210, 1 from page 278, and 14, 16, & 18 from page 280 all in your Geosystems text. To help look at the United States Geological Survey Water Cycle website and ther University of Kentucky Geology Department flash animation site.

A - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we are off to the library again to continue work on our forensic science web page project. I have the library booked for you on Monday and Tuesday next week so there is not very much time remaining for this assignment. You will have a law quiz on Friday this week.
