Sexual Harassment

Behind the Gown' is a group of barristers committed to tackling sexual harassment at the Bar. This lecture confronts the evidence. How can we learn from it? A lecture by Jo Delahunty QC, Gresham Professor of Law 29 November 2018 https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/sexual-harrassment-bar 2018 saw a seismic change in the willingness of women to speak out about sexual abuse they had suffered at work and the willingness of others to hear and act on it. This year (2018) saw the creation of a #metoo movement called 'Behind the Gown' created by a group of barristers committed to tackling sexual harassment at the Bar. This lecture frankly confronts the anecdotal evidence and suggests ways in which we can learn from it.

Executive Pay: What’s Right, What’s Wrong, and What Could Be Fixed?

Náhled

Executive pay causes mistrust in business. Which aspects of Executive pay are working well and which are dysfunctional? How should pay be reformed? A lecture by Alex Edmans, Gresham Professor of Business 12 December 2018 6pm (UK time) https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/executive-pay-fixed Executive pay is a controversial topic that is arguably the primary cause behind mistrust in business. Various remedies have been proposed but, just like in medicine, diagnosis precedes treatment. Many of the concerns are based on hand-picked examples and myths rather than rigorous data. Evidence will be presented on which aspects of pay are working well and which are indeed dysfunctional, and on how pay should be reformed. Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

Theatre Dionysus

One of the classical Athenians' most important inventions was the theatre. This lecture outlines the origins of Greek drama in this historic setting. A lecture by Edith Hall, Visiting Professor of Classics 29 November 2018 https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/theatre-dionysus Medea, Antigone, Oedipus and Lysistrata - these are just some of the characters from ancient Greek drama who still walk our contemporary stages and haunt our imagination. One of the classical Athenians' most important inventions was the medium of theatre. From the mid-sixth century BCE they gathered to watch tragedies, and later comedies in their sanctuary of the wine-god Dionysus on the south slope of the Acropolis. This lecture outlines the origins of Greek drama in this historic setting, its architectural development and some of the greatest masterpieces.

Romantic Lakes from Wordsworth Beatrix Potter

Jonathan Bate follows the 18th-century 'inventors' of the picturesque which lead to the creation of the National Trust and the idea of the National Park. A lecture by Sir Jonathan Bate, Gresham Professor of Rhetoric 11 December 2018 6pm (UK time) https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/romantic-leakes-wordsworth-beatrix-potter When Daniel Defoe rode through the Lake District in the early 18th century, he described the area as ‘the wildest, most barren and frightful of any that I have passed over in England.’ But for Victorians such as Matthew Arnold and John Ruskin, the Lakes offered a landscape of supreme beauty. How did this change come about? Jonathan Bate will follow in the footsteps of the 18th-century inventors of the ‘picturesque’ and show how Wordsworth shaped the vision of his native region, leading to the foundation of the National Trust and the idea of a National Park.

Beginning

Where did we come from? Professor Silk describes the modern scientist's view of the origin of the cosmos. A lecture by Joseph Silk, Gresham Professor of Astronomy 28 November 2018 https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/in-the-beginning Where did we come from? This question has always intrigued human thought. Professor Silk will describe the modern scientist's view of the origin of the cosmos. Here is the sequence: from an uncertain beginning, due to limitations in our knowledge that arise from our ongoing search for a theory that unites quantum theory with gravity, to a primordial ball of fire. Glowing embers condensed from the expanding and cooling fireball to form the billions of galaxies and stars that glitter in the night sky.

Why has it taken so long to crack the speech processing puzzle and what progress can we expect in the next few years?

Sci-fi films had talking computers many years ago. Why has it taken so long to crack the speech processing puzzle? Why do we find speech processing so effortless and machines find it so daunting?

Plastics from Potatoes Rubber from Rice

This lecture shows that the inclusion of a simple salt can lead to a flexible, recyclable plastic with mechanical properties similar to oil derived plastics. A lecture by Professor Andrew Abbott, University of Leicester 26 November 2018 https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/plastics-potatoes-rubber-rice With over 80% of organic carbon being present in the form of cellulose, lignin and starch, it is unsurprising many groups have attempted to use these as feed-stock chemicals and materials. Extensive hydrogen bonding makes the plasticisation of starch and the dissolution of cellulose difficult. This talk shows that the incorporation of a simple salt can lead to a flexible plastic with mechanical properties similar to oil derived plastics. Most importantly these plastics are recyclable and ultimately compostable.

Understanding Violent People

What makes people violent? How has violent behaviour been understood over the past two centuries and what can we do today to reduce levels of violence? A lecture by Joanna Bourke, Visiting Professor of History 06 December 2018 6pm (UK time) https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/understanding-violent-people Most of us have witnessed or had personal dealings with violent people. Why do they act as they do? How have British and American commentators during the past two centuries understood violent behaviour? The media incites anxieties about personal vulnerability; widespread innumeracy leads many people to misread crime-statistics; and an expectation of greater civility makes its breach so much more frightening. What can we do to reduce levels of violence in our society? Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

Uhor, Uhri – starobylé meno stredoeurópskych Slovanov I(10)

oc 04.06.2018, 20:24

Magna Germánia, po správnosti Magna Ugermánia Klaudios Ptolemaios zostavil rozsiahle dielo s názvom Geographia, v ktorom opisuje geografiu vtedy známych oblastí. Jednou z nich bolo aj územie zvané Magna Germania – Veľká Germánia. Jej hranice popísal pomerne presne. Západnú hranicu tvorila rieka Rýn, severnú Baltické more, ktoré nazýva Germánsky oceán. Južnú hranicu kladie do oblasti od prameňa Dunaja po [...]

Uhri – Alani známi aj ako historickí Germáni Jazykový „doplnok“, ktorý sa „udial“ v prípade Alani – Ala(man)i sa rovnako realizoval aj s tvarom Ugri – Uger(man)i. Táto skutočnosť nie je náhodná, pretože na jednej strane tvary Uhor/Ugor a Alan (aal) označujú úhora-rybu, na strane druhej Alaman a Germán sú pomenovania synonymické. Francúzi dodnes západných, Rimanmi „scivilizovaných“ Germánov (Nemcov), nazývajú [...]

Starobylí Uhri boli známi pod menom Alani Meno Alan, Alani a jeho modifikácie boli v časoch „Keltov a Germánov“ najfrekventovanejším pomenovaním Uhrov v rámci celého Euroázijského priestoru. Najzápadnejší Alani dostali od Rimanov príponu „man“, takže boli známi ako Alamani; v oblasti dnešného východného Rakúska, Maďarska, Slovenska a Rumunska boli známi ako Osi, Jasi (1) a neskôr ako Jazygi alebo Vandali Asdingi; ďalej [...]

Chrobati – jedno z mnohých mien stredoeurópskych Bielych Uhrov V súvislosti s výskytom úhora na línii rozvodia sa objavujú dve základné „prostredia“, v ktorých dochádzalo k prechodu z úmoria do úmoria. V prevažnej miere sú to hory a vrchy, v menšej miere to boli bažiny – pripjaťské močiare, bažiny v oblasti Valdajskej vrchoviny, mokrade medzi Valdajskou a Haličskou vrchovinou. Tento fakt spomína Pomponius Mela (asi 1. stor.), [...]

Uhor, Uhri – starobylé meno stredoeurópskych Slovanov I(6)

Etymologický súvis medzi pomenovaním Uhri, Uhorsko a rybou-úhorom Pôvod pomenovania Uhrov a Uhorska premení v mene ryby nazývanej úhor. K tomuto uzáveru je možné dôjsť aj jednoduchým porovnávaním známych toponymických názvov v rôznych jazykoch. V slovenčine je to jasné a zreteľné. Krajina Uhorsko, hadovitá ryba sa nazýva úhor. V poľštine majú pre úhora výraz węgorz, Uhorsku hovoria Królestwo Węgier. Dve odlišné slová [...]
