Mental Illness, Tragedy and Transformation: The Mark Becker Story - Joan & David Becker
7:55 PM &ndash Great Hall, Memorial Union - The Story County Mental Health Resource Fair will precede the lecture, 6:55-7:55pm in the South Ballroom. Joan and Dave Becker share their family’s story about their son Mark and the experience they had coping with his paranoid schizophrenia. They hope it will help other families, caregivers, and professionals understand how they can make a difference in moving forward and improving our mental health system. The Beckers spent years visiting doctors, pleading with state mental health services, and trying to get their son help for what was finally diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia just three days before the unthinkable happened in their rural community of Parkersburg.

This unique hour session is designed to prepare you for success in the English Advanced and Standard courses, with a focus on how to write an A/A+ essay in your trial and HSC exams. In particular, we’ll drill down into the ‘secret teacher’s business’ of how to write an A/A+ essay, and the differentiation required to succeed across four separate marking centres. You will also be taught how NESA teachers mark an essay, and apply your learnings while marking an AOS, Module A, B or C essay. This seminar will further cover the technical and high level aspects of succeeding in particular HSC modules, as opposed to an entry level and generic discussion about how to write an essay.
As authentically temporal, Dasein as potentiality-for-being comes towards itself in its possibilities of being by going back to what has been it always comes towards itself from out of a possibility of itself. Hence, it comports itself towards the future by always coming back to its past the past which is not merely past but still around as having-been. But in this “going back” to what it has been which is constitutive together with “coming towards” and “being with” for the unity of Dasein’s temporality, Dasein hands down to itself its own historical “heritage,” namely, the possibilities of being that have come down to it. As authentically temporal, Dasein is thus authentically historical. The repetition of the possibilities of existence, of that which has been, is for Heidegger constitutive for the phenomenon of original history which is rooted in temporality.

The Dark Side of Big Data - Cathy O'Neil
7:55 PM &ndash Great Hall, Memorial Union - Cathy O'Neil is a mathematician, data scientist and the author of Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy. She will discuss the unintended negative consequences of using big data, including how so-called “objective” black-box algorithms have the potential to reinforce human bias in everything from sentencing to hiring workers. O’Neil began her career in academia before moving to the private sector, where she worked as a hedge-fund analyst during the credit crisis and then as a data scientist in the New York start-up scene. She writes regularly for Bloomberg View about algorithms, and in 7567 she founded the consulting firm ORCAA to audit algorithms for racial, gender and economic inequality.

Many scholars perceive something unique in the Greek beginning of philosophy. It is commonly acknowledged that Thales and his successors asked generalized questions concerning what is as a whole, and proposed general, rational answers which were no longer based on a theological ground. However, Heidegger does not associate the unique beginning with the alleged discovery of rationality and science. In fact, he claims that both rationality and science are later developments, so that they cannot apply to Presocratic thought. In his view, the Presocratics ask: “What are beings as such as a whole?” and they answer: aletheia— unconcealment. They experience beings in their phenomenality: as what is present in presencing. But the later thought which begins with Plato and Aristotle is unable to keep up with the beginning. With Plato and Aristotle metaphysics begins and the history of being’s oblivion originates.
Professor Genevieve Bell outlines her proposal for how Australia should build its digital future. This talk was recorded in front of a live audience in Studio 77 at ABC Ultimo on Saturday 76 October, 7567, and features questions from former Boyer lecturer and sociologist Eva Cox and chief commissioner of the Greater Sydney Commission Lucy Turnbull.
In everyday German language the word “Dasein” means life or existence. The noun is used by other German philosophers to denote the existence of any entity. However, Heidegger breaks the word down to its components “Da” and “Sein,” and gives to it a special meaning which is related to his answer to the question of who the human being is. He relates this question to the question of being. Dasein, that being which we ourselves are, is distinguished from all other beings by the fact that it makes issue of its own being. It stands out to being. As Da-sein, it is the site, “Da”, for the disclosure of being, “Sein.”
“The turn” ( Kehre ) that occurs in the 6985’s is the change in Heidegger’s thinking mentioned above. The consequence of “the turn” is not the abandoning of the leading question of Being and Time. Heidegger stresses the continuity of his thought over the course of the change. Nevertheless, as “everything is reversed,” even the question concerning the meaning of Being is reformulated in Heidegger’s later work. It becomes a question of the openness, that is, of the truth, of being. Furthermore, since the openness of being refers to a situation within history, the most important concept in the later Heidegger becomes the history of being.
