Managed to attend yesterday's classes ok

I managed to attend the polcing issues course and the statistical computing course yesterday. I borrowed some books for the study of policing. I read a little of the history of the private police this morning. I am also continuing to read about vunerability and also information technology in the developing world.

When I got home yesterday our gifts from Amazon.com had arrived and this included books on R. One of these books is very similar to yesterday's lecture on the basics of R. The other on R covers using R for the basic statistics I have learned in studying for my B.Math degree. My wife got a DVD and CD and an audio book by the Dalai Lama on ethics for the new millenium. I read some of the R books before sleeping at 6 PM last night.

I chatted with the policing professor after class about a possible topic for a paper. He is ok with me writing about labour and technology in police work. I have found a good quote about the demands on constables and how they had too much work to do in the past in Les Johnstones book the Rebirth of Private Policing. I also chatted with a younger student who is also just about finished her BA in legal studies. I did not even learn her name we just talked about courses and professors and working in policing.

I made an appointment to see the school psychologist again later in January. I also dropped in on union offices and did a little paperwork there. I got my grade today for my durg law course and I passed with an ok grade. My problem was again my English use.
