Friday, March 16. 2018

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

A Block Law 12 - We'll finish the plea bargain Karla Homolka 5th Estate video we watched yesterday and then after, we'll watch the Law & Order episode “Fools for Love” (season 10, episode 15). This episode is based on the Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Tammy Homolka cases.  Finally, I'd like you to finish with question 7 from page 179:

The plea negotiation has become the primary means of dispensing justice in Canada. It is effective, both for accused criminals looking to minimize their punishment and for prosecutors coping with the torrent of cases sloshing through the courts. Is it morally correct to trade the legal rights guaranteed by the Charter for convenience and cost savings?

B Block Introduction to Law 10 - BONUS DAY...I have the library booked so that you may work on the Clue Us In crime scene investigation project. Please note that your library time is coming to a close, today is the last day I have for you in the library, so please don't waste time. Remember you need to create a crime...replicate the crime scene...investigate the crime as if you were an R.C.M.P. officer...and prepare a dossier file to hand over to Crown Counsel so that they may prosecute the case.

C Block Criminology 12 - We'll continue with our last topic in the violent crime unit...terrorism. Some stuff to help with your questions:
What Motivates Terrorists?
Public Safety Canada Counter Terrorism
Terrorism threatens Canada
It’s time to talk about terror in Canada

Today you'll have time to wrap up questions from the violence unit and then we'll watch a Criminal Minds episode from season 4 "Amplification" where the BAU responds quickly after a someone releases a new strain of a deadly anthrax virus in Annapolis that threatens the public and puts a member of the team at risk.

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today we'll continue to examine the key issue "Why Do Countries Face Obstacles to Development"? Remember, developing countries are confronted with two fundamental obstacles in attempting to stimulate more rapid development:

  1. Adopting policies that successfully promote development and
  2. Finding funds to pay for development. 
Developing countries do not have access to the funds necessary to fund development, so they obtain financial support from developed countries. Finance comes from two main sources: direct investment by transnational corporations and loans from banks and international organizations. To promote the international trade development model (for development investment by transnational corporations), countries representing 97 percent of world trade established the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1995 (there are 164 member countries as of 29 July 2016). Commerce in which products are made and traded according to standards that protect workers and small businesses in developing countries is considered fair trade. The fair-trade movement is an alternative vision of the international trade approach which attempts to increase the prices that are paid to producers in LDCs. Fair trade also tries to eliminate the very low wages and extremely poor working conditions for workers in LDCs

Two UN agencies, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, provide loans to LDCs to develop. An alternative source of loans for would-be business owners in developing countries is microfinance. Microfinance is the provision of a small loan to individuals and small businesses that are unable to get a loan from commercial banks

You'll have some questions to finish up the week 7 package for me.
