I attended my LAWS3205 lecture yesterday. We covered the end of the section on consumer credit. We looked at bankrupcy. Then we covered the legislative respones to consumer issues. I got some notes for last week's lecture from Tom who also took LAWS4305 this term.
I am up early this morning doing some bibliographic files on this laptop.

I started to read chapter 18 in my consumer law textbook. I completed reading chapter 17 Saturday night.
I surfed an ebay sellers store for educational software.
I need to do some more preparing for a calculus tutorial I have to give today. Today is the last tutorial for this course. I hope I am a teaching assistant in this course next term, too. I have done some preparation work using Maple 7. I thought of posting my answers to the web as MATHML files and letting the students know where the URL is.
I have one more question to mark from last week's MATH0107 test.

I borrowed the book by Lisa J. Servon, Bridging the Digital Divide, Technology, Community and Public Policy (Malden, MA: Blackwell Publishing, 2002) and did a preliminary read of it.
I completed marking last weeks' tutorial and recording the marks.
I need to finish up my executive summary tonight/this morning or Thursday morning. This morning would be nice.

I gave the calculus test yesterday and have to mark 5 tests by Friday.
I completed reading chapter 3 in What's Wrong with Addiction this morning and started chapter 4 which is about smoking and how smoking is not really an addiction but is too an addiction.
I read some more of a book on SAS that is new in the library.
I have written two pages now for my executive summary for LAWS4305
I have not read any of ruling the root this week.

My dad is working on a paper for the journal Nature. He also is writing for Nature, an obituary for the scientist and nobel prize winner Bert Brockhouse.
I might study some first year computer science next term. That would be COMP1005. I might also study LAWS4307 medical issues in criminal law.

I took up trigonometric limits and derivatives in the MATH0007 tutorial today.
I finished chapter 9 in ruling the root today.
I got a space in Feminist Law Issues today for next term. I also dropped contemporary ethical theories because the schedule conflicts with one of my game nights. I still need to narrow down my course choices for next term.

I finished reading Sandra Walklate's paper in the book Criminal Justice Research, titled: Reflections on 'Victims and 'Victimisation': An Autobiography of Ideas. Some key concepts she presents from the Gidden are ontological security, risk and trust. She then explores the social psychologist Harre and brings in his universal law of humans searching for respect. We must learn to treat victims as people and treat them with respect. I guestion who the victims are. Being a radical I would say these people would include students failing courses leading to unemployment, other unemployed, the disabled and all others victimised by capitalist society and the pursuit of intellectualism. Ontology is something I first learned about reading the Divided Self by R.D, Laing.
