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

B Block Geography 12 - Today we start looking at storms and "CYCLOGENESIS"...sweet! We will look at mid-latitude cyclones and the source regions of air masses that cause these storms to develop. We'll analyze the difference between the three dimensional structure of a warm front and a cold front and we'll finish watching our BBC friend Mr. Donal McIntyre and his efforts to combat wet extremes on the planet. Your work to accomplish for the day is questions 1, 2, and 5 from page 147 and question 10 from page 248 in your Geosystems textbook. The following sites will help with cyclogenesis:
Michael Ritter's The Physical Environment: An Introduction to Physical Geography on line text
National Weather Service Jet Stream on line weather school
University of Illinois WW2010 Weather Wold Project

Rapid Cyclogenesis Web lesson
Environment Canada Understanding Cyclogenesis

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we are in the library for our last day to work on the Dictatorship for Dummies project. This assignment is due on Monday and you will have no more computer room nor class time to work on it. As this is your first major project for term four, doing well on it can be a very effective way of starting off the term well! Please ask as many questions as you need to do well. Good luck!

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we are going to finish up our crime map of the Comox Valley in order to understand geographic profiling and criminal hot spots. We've identified both the Break and Enter and Thefts for the city of Courtenay from June to November 2011. On your map you'll need to colour the areas of criminal activity - those areas with a higher concentration of crime will need to be shaded in warmer colours (orange to red) while those areas that have lower concentrations of crime will need to be shaded in cooler colours (green to blue). Attached to your map will be an explanation of what areas are prone to crime (based on the map) and why you think that is. I'll also need you to hand in your profile of a student hacker/cracker that you were assigned on Monday.
