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

B Block Physical Geography 12 - Today you have the class to get caught up on work from week 10 (last week). You'll need to get your Medicine Hat topographic map work into me along with your rivers, coastlines, deserts and glaciers work as well. Don't forget that on Thursday (That would be tomorrow) you'll have a test/quiz on Gradation (Weeks 8-9-10).

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll look at gangs and gang activity in Canada. I will show you a History Channel show called Gangland. The episode I'd like to show you is from season three and it's called "To Torture or to Kill". This episode is about "Los Zetas" and the drug corridor along the Nuevo Laredo - Texas border. Miguel Treviño Morales, alias "Z-40," the leader of Los Zetas was captured an arrested in July 2013 however los Zetas still survive (as does Sinaloa and others).

InSight Crime Los Zetas

You can watch the Gangland documentary in class, on the link here or watch it below...

C Block Human Geography 11 - Today we'll look at the key question "Why Do Territorial Conflicts Arise Among Religious Groups"?  It probably comes as no surprise that various conflicts have occurred between religions and governments and between governments or ethnicity using religion as an excuse.

We'll try to understand this with four examples:

  1. Hinduism, the Caste System and social equality;
  2. The "Troubles" in Northern Ireland;
  3. Jerusalem; and
  4. China, Tibet and the Dalai Lama
