The central issue in Philosophy of Mind is the Mind-Body problem: How can something like the material brain produce something like the non-material mind?  And how can they interact with each other?  In this presentation we will survey some of the different positions people take in regards to the mind-body problem and discuss some objections to each. Dr. Johnson received a MA and PhD in Social/Organizational-Industrial Psychology and a MA in Communication from Northern Illinois University.  She received a B.S….

Every year, Fermilab’s Engineering Advisory Council holds its annual All Engineers’ Retreat during EWeek, which is dedicated to celebrating engineers’ contributions to society and to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce. This year’s retreat organizers expanded the annual gathering to a week-long series of events to engage with the Fermilab engineering community directly. Participants can register for on-site tours, 3-D printing demonstrations and professional-inreach workshops. The agenda also features events to inspire innovation.

For 2020 Engineers’ retreat, the EAC is sponsoring a week-long series of events to highlight Fermilab’s own engineering community. Register NOW for onsite tours, 3Dprinting demonstrations, and Professional Inreach (PI) workshops. Registration will be first-come, first-serve. We will try to accommodate those on any wait list, but there are no guarantees due to limited room availability and/or capacity. https://indico.fnal.gov/event/22843/  

Mexico City is a fantastic venue for a physicist gathering. Magnificent colonial buildings dating from the 1500s, impressive archeological sites, a thriving art scene, authentic Mexican cuisine and wonderful hosts made the Centro Histórico in the former capital of the Mexica Empire the perfect setting for the first Latin American Workshop on Software and Computing Challenges in High-Energy Particle Physics, held in November.
