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

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll begin our look at the steps to world war two and Canada's response. We'll review your work on the rise of dictators and then we'll examine German aggression in terms of European politics. Next we'll look at isolation and appeasement along with Canada's declaration of war. I'll show you some archival footage from Germany and then you'll need to work on questions 2, 3, and 5 from page 98 along with questions 1 through 4 on page 105 of the Counterpoints text. Your 1920's - 1930's quiz will be Tuesday (May 14th - because you're helping run the Student Vote on Monday) and we'll have a quick review for that.

C Block Social Studies 10 - Because we didn't get to it we'll look at the development of Vancouver (Gastown - named after the areas first saloon owner "Gassy" Jack Deighton and Moodyville - named after sawmill owner Sewell Prescott Moody) incorporated as a city on April 24th, 1886. We'll get to Andrew Onderdonk and William Cornelius Van Horne later when we talk about the Canadian Pacific Railway, but for more on Vancouver's early days check out:
Museum of Vancouver
Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver
The History of Metropolitan Vancouver (Chuck Davis)

After you have a chance to finish your work on 'Ole Bill Coot - cut, colour and glue because tomorrow it's due.

D Block Criminology 12 - This week we looked at Choice, Trait, Social Structure, Social Process and Conflict Criminological Theories. In Trait theory we looked at certain personality disorders that could lead to criminal behaviour so today we'll take the class to understand what a "psychopath" is. Too often people throw the term psycho around without really understanding what it means so we'll look at Dr. Robert Hare's PCL-R (Psychopathy Checklist Revised). The diagnosis "Psychopath" is closely related to Antisocial Personality Disorder in the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th Edition).

I'll have you watch a Law & Order Criminal Intent episode "Jones" about a psychopathic killer. From Wapedia...

In this episode, Detective Goren and Eames are investigating the death of a pretty, petite woman found drowned in her bathtub.

The detectives go to work, turning down a more high-profile case because this one looks interesting. Suddenly, they find themselves awash when a second victim is another petite woman found naked and washed up on shore just days apart. Goren quickly deduces she, too, was drowned in a bathtub. But the case turns out even bigger as a third body is found, with similar body type and strangled but not drowned. Later, a fourth woman is killed.

The investigation leads Goren and Eames to an abusive, cocaine-addicted lawyer. The connection is that the women were his clients and he also was taking them for a significant amount of money to help feed his gambling addictions. The detectives dig into the case, knowing that he has one more unknown victim remaining on his list. Since Goren and Eames are unable to get help from his wife, they race in a desperate attempt to save the potential victim.
