• James "The Amazing" Randi Lecture at Princeton: The Search for the Chimera

    James "The Amazing" Randi in his visit to Princeton University in 2001, gives us his classic style of scientific scepticism mixed with his ability to expose the most irritating flaws in our society, and the fakers who push their tricks and gimmicks like a cheap drug. "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled. In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the ...

    It wasn't until the 1990s that scientists could be sure there were planets beyond our solar system. Since then, astronomers have discovered thousands of these planets – known as "exoplanets" – circling distant stars. The progress in this field has been extraordinary. On February 22, 2017, a team of European astronomers announced the discovery of a system of seven Earth-sized planets around a nearby star. Several of these planets may have surface temperatures that would allow for the presence of liquid water oceans, thought to be conducive to the evolution of life. Developments such as these bring us closer to answering the age-old question: Are we alone? Prof. Winn will explain the new technologies and techniques that were required to find exoplanets, and what kind of planets have been ...

James "The Amazing" Randi in his visit to Princeton University in 2001, gives us his classic style of scientific scepticism mixed with his ability to expose the most irritating flaws in our society, and the fakers who push their tricks and gimmicks like a cheap drug. "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled. In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the machinations from the chaos, the sense as well as the awe in both the tricks and the real world. For several decades, Randi has gone on to expose hundreds of psychics and teach millions across the globe about how they could be fooled into believing in a system which could potentially make them vulnerable to trickery and perhaps psychical harm. Randi is not afraid to go against popular opinion, as shown in his battle against so-called psychic Uri Geller in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Randi has also gone against the bizarre practise of faith "healing" and contacting the deceased, and has exposed the cruel, callous and cynical nature of the people who claim to be performing "God's will", such as Peter Popoff. Randi has also warned us time and time again about the fraudulent practise that is homoeopathic medicine and how it is essentially water solution, dished out as hocus-pocus medicine. James Randi is the founder of The James Randi Educational Foundation, an organisation that attempts to bring reason to world by luring potential psychics into a trap, baited by a million dollar prize to prove their psychic "powers". "powers" here is a kind of vague term,as Randi knows, so the tests are usually on the so-called psychic's terms. No self-acclaimed psychic has ever won the prize. Whether or not some form of psychic power exists is still an open question, however many psychics often do not properly gauge their so-called skills and instead brag about them, hence scepticism about such claims should not be so strange to their ears. Unfortunately the vast amount of psychic powers they have seem to remove all self-esteem as many psychics are often uneasy about Randi's reasonable request and attractive reward. Regardless, psychic frauds come and go in droves but there will only ever be one James "The Amazing" Randi. Enjoy this lecture and help share his noble message of skepticism and critical thinking of irrational claims.

How do galaxies emerge? In this lecture, David Spergel focuses on the results from NASA´s Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe (WMAP) and upcoming measurements from ESA´s PLANK satellite. While there has been significant progress, many key cosmological questions remain unanswered: What happened during the first moments of the Big Bang? What is dark energy? What were the properties of the first stars? Spergel discusses how future observations may start to answer these new and deeper questions.

The fourth annual Princeton in Europe Lecture -- Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch asks 'What if Arianism had won?' The most noticeable and remarkable thing about Western Europe in what we call the Middle Ages is its cultural and religious unity, united by a common alignment with the Pope in Rome, and a common language for worship and scholarship. Western Europeans tend to take this united medieval phase of their history for granted, but it is unique in human history for a region to be so dominated by a single form of monotheistic religion and its accompanying culture for a thousand-year period. The dominance of the Church which looked to the Bishop of Rome was a freak in human experience, albeit a freak with profound consequences for the present day. With this exercise in counterfactual history, Diarmaid MacCulloch draws on his experience of writing and filming an overview history of Christianity to consider how easily matters might have been different in the Christian West. He identifies Martin of Tours as a key figure, but also speculates on the perfectly plausible event of an Arian outcome to Western Christianity's emergence from the ruins of the Western Roman Empire.

A white Princeton University professor had several students walk out of his class after he allegedly refused to stop using the n-word during a lecture.In his Tuesday class, titled Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy and Pornography, Professor Lawrence Rosen asked students what would be worse, a white man punching a black man or a white man calling a black man the n-word, the Daily Princetonian reported.The anthropology professor used the racial slur two times after the initial question, students in the class told the university paper.'All the black students were looking at each other, as if asking whether he actually said that,' student Destiny Salter said.Things came to a boil when Malachi Byrd, a black, third-year student, allegedly asked Rosen if he was going to keep using the n-word.'Yes, if I think it's necessary,' the professor replied, per the Daily Princetonian.Byrd then walked out of the class, followed by three other students.Senior Devyn Holliday told the university paper that Rosen defended his choice of words after the student walk-out.He allegedly said: 'It's supposed to deliver a gut punch, so that's why I used it.'Byrd eventually returned to the lecture and he and other students continued to press Rosen for an apology, to which he allegedly replied: 'I don't think I need to apologize; I did not oppress anyone.'Students E Jeremijenko-Conley and Destiny Salter said they filed a complaint with the university's director of studies for Rockefeller College at Princeton.Director Justine Levine told the Princetonian in an email that she will work with students to resolve the issue.One student, Kevin Ramos, plans on dropping the class after the incident.'The professor saw how uncomfortable the students were with his language,' said Ramos. 'If he doesn't respect the students' opinion, then it's not worth learning from him,' he said.The course asks 'how civility relates to free speech, how codes may channel expression without oppression, and how cultural difference can relate to shared values and orientations,' according to its description on the university website.Many took to social media to disagree with the students who walked out, calling them 'snowflakes' and asking what they expected to hear in a class about hate speech.One Twitter user said: 'Given the title of the course, people should have been prepared. Not every class is designed to make you comfortable. They are not children anymore.'Another added: 'So students don't expect to be shocked in a class called, 'Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy and Pornography'? How can wer have an honest conversation?'According to the university's website, professor Rosen was set to retire last year after 40 years of teaching.

Jan-Werner Mueller delivered a lecture titled 'After populism'. Taking stocks from contemporary cases he identifies populism as a movement against pluralism and rebukes common wisdom that populists -being politically incompetent- are doomed to fail once in office. Glimps of hope for democracy are suggested nothwistanding. During the lecture it was shown a video clip that has been removed for editorial reasons.

Soon after winning the Fields Medal in 1962, a young John Milnor gave these now-famous lectures and wrote his timeless Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint -http://www.mat.unimi.it/users/dedo/top%20diff/Milnor%20J.%20Topology%20from%20the%20differentiable%20viewpoint%20(Princeton,%201965).pdf , which has influenced generations of mathematicians. The lectures, filmed by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), were unavailable for years but recently resurfaced. With Simons Foundation funding, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute has produced these digital reproductions as a resource for the mathematics and science communities. Milnor was awarded the Abel Prize in 2011 for his work in topology, geometry and algebra. The sequel to these lectures, written several mathematical lives — and a Wolf and an Abel Prize later — is "Differential Topology Forty-six Years Later,"- http://www.ams.org/notices/201106/rtx110600804p.pdf Source of the above information and lecture: https://www.simonsfoundation.org/science_lives_video/professor-john-w-milnor/ Also quite helpful: Differential Topology Lectures by John Milnor, Princeton University, Fall term 1958 Notes by James Munkres - http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/~aar/papers/difftop.pdf

It wasn't until the 1990s that scientists could be sure there were planets beyond our solar system. Since then, astronomers have discovered thousands of these planets – known as "exoplanets" – circling distant stars. The progress in this field has been extraordinary. On February 22, 2017, a team of European astronomers announced the discovery of a system of seven Earth-sized planets around a nearby star. Several of these planets may have surface temperatures that would allow for the presence of liquid water oceans, thought to be conducive to the evolution of life. Developments such as these bring us closer to answering the age-old question: Are we alone? Prof. Winn will explain the new technologies and techniques that were required to find exoplanets, and what kind of planets have been found. Recent advances have revealed bizarre new worlds unlike anything in our Solar System, while also bringing us right to the threshold of finding other planets similar to Earth.

This is the second of two parts which features Part 1 features Kip Cherry and archeologist Wade Catts. Part 2 will feature Historian Dr. Robert Selig. The Battle for Princeton lecture was held at the Princeton, NJ Public Library on May 16, 2013. This project has been funded in part by a grant from the Battlefield Preservation Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.Special thanks also to the National Trust for Historical Preservation for naming the Princeton Battlefield as one of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Sites in the United States in 2012. The lecture featured Historian Dr. Robert Selig and Archaeologist Wade Catts, with an introduction by Kip Cherry, 1st VP, Princeton Battlefield Society. Dr. Selig and Wade Catts were the authors of a major study on the Battle of Princeton financed by the American Battlefield Protection Program, U.S. Department of the Interior entitled: Battle of Princeton Mapping Project: Report of Military Terrain Analysis and Battle Narrative, Princeton, New Jersey. The study developed a new interpretation of the sequence of the Battle of Princeton using GIS/GPS to map the physical evidence in 130 original accounts of the Battle. Dr. Selig and Mr. Catts will discuss not only the findings of that study but also subsequent revelations and questions that still remain. Ms. Cherry provided a quick review of Princeton as a British Garrison before the Battle and the months following the Battle, a critical turning point of the American Revolution, and will be giving a peek at the pension application of a soldier named Jebez Flint

The Princeton Lecture is part of the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival, the Oxford Martin School is the Festival Ideas Partner Speaker: Professor Ian Goldin, Director, Oxford Martin School and Author Globalisation has brought us vast benefits including growth in incomes, education, innovation and connectivity. Professor Ian Goldin, director of the Oxford Martin School, argues that it also has the potential to destabilise our societies. In The Butterfly Defect: How globalisation creates systemic risks, and what to do about it, to be published in May, he and co-author Mike Mariathasan, Assistant Professor of Finance at the University of Vienna, argue that the recent financial crisis is an example of the risks that the world will face in the coming decades. The risks spread across supply chains, pandemics, infrastructure, ecology, climate change, economics and politics. Unless these risks are addressed, says Goldin, they could lead to greater protectionism, xenophobia, nationalism and to deglobalisation, rising conflict and slower growth.
