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

A Block Geography 12 - Today we're continuing our look at water by focusing on coastal processes and land forms. We will look at how water erodes, shapes, and creates coastal landscapes by focusing on long shore current & drift. We'll analyze the differences between an erosional and depositional coastline and try to make sense of the hazards of living along depositional coastlines (think Cape Hatteras, North Carolina). For additional information and help on questions 8, 11, 13, & 14 in your Geosystems text go to:

University of Regina Geomorphology Class notes
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Geomorphology from space site
USGS Coastal & Marine Geology program
NOAA: Pressures on Coastal Environments

There's a great article on the dangers of people moving to coastlines at EARTH magazine here.

There's a great web page on the Graveyard of the Atlantic: Sable Island Nova Scotia. Check out more on Sable Island here or here (from the basement geographer)

You can also find some very good before-after photos of the destruction caused to coastal landforms and human infrastructure by Hurricane Sandy at the CBC here or the Weather Channel here

And there was a good story on CBC about last week's topics (rock slides and the Trans Canada Highway here in BC)

B & C Blocks Social Studies 11 - You have your unit final test on World War One today. If you studied and came prepared, I'm sure that you will do well. With the remaining time left in class (as the test will only take about forty minutes to complete) you'll be able to work on on the following:

What effect did Canada’s participation in the First World War have on Canadian society and its status as a nation?

Think about:
Role of women
National unity
Independence from Britain
Changing ideas about war
Economy (Canada becomes industrial)

D Block Criminology 12 - Today is a catch up day for your blog entries. You need to have finished the following blog posts:

  1. Personal Theory of Crime (09/12)
  2. Trends in Crime (Drugs in BC) (09/19)
  3. Is school a violent place for teens (09/26)
  4. Short and Long term Impacts on Crime Victims (10/03)
  5. Hypermasculinity and Sexual Assault (10/11)
  6. Serial and Mass Murder (Olson or Pickton and Lepine) (10/17)
  7. Auto Theft (10/24)
  8. Good Burglars (10/31)

If you are all done every blog post then you may work on the questions connected to the Corporation:

  1. Should corporate executives be found guilty of murder if they fail to take reasonable measures to protect their staff and an employee subsequently dies?
  2. Is it fair to blame a single executive for the activities of a company that has thousands of employees?
  3. Can Corporations Commit Murder? If a corporation is considered as a person in law (as it is in the US) who can be held liable (responsible) if a corporation kills people?  
  4. Recall 10 or more brands, their logos, their jingles, slogans, and any memory of the product (think Nike = swoosh = "just do it"). Do you know who owns the brand? What is your perception of this "brand"?
  5. According to individuals interviewed in The Corporation, the problem is with the corporations themselves, not necessarily with the people who run them. What evidence does the film use to make this point? Do you agree or disagree? Explain using examples from the film.
  6. The documentary raises important questions about ethics and personal responsibility. One of the fundamental messages in the film is that corporations are irresponsible because in an attempt to satisfy corporate goals, everyone else is put at risk. To what extent is a person responsible for what they do even when within a company? Is a person morally culpable for their actions when satisfying the goal of profit within a corporation? Why or why not?
