The Power of Meditation


Have you ever wondered why meditation is a word that has come to be used loosely and inaccurately in the modern world? That is why there is so much confusion about how to practice it. Meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state. It is the means for fathoming all the levels of ourselves and finally experiencing the centre of consciousness within. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified. Are you keen to learn more about meditation and its benefits? Come and join us!

Social Bots in The Digital Era: Conception, Detection, and Description


Synopsis: With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, automated bots are rising on social media platforms. Will this type of media algorithms manipulate public opinions? This question has drawn both anxiety and curiosity from researchers across the river of disciplines. The first half of this webinar is to systematically introduce research fronts of social bot studies from a perspective of social sciences. In the second half, an in-processing computational work will be presented. It focuses on testing the agenda-setting power of social bots in the context of COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. This study aims to answer an essential theoretical question: to what degree social bots can influence public discourse and media coverage, and in which situation social bots can further exert influence on our society at scale.

Speaker: Zening Duan, a doctoral student at School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC), University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is passionate about developing and applying computational tools in observational, theoretical, and experimental research on social bots, propaganda, and public campaign.

Rising above the Pandemic: Covid-19 and its effect on Women and Gender


Speakers: Ms Nazreen Nizam (Capacity Building Coordinator, Women's Aid Organisation); Dr Lim Soo Jin (UTAR); & Dr Premalatha Karupiah, Kanita (USM). 

 The COVID-19 global pandemic will have long-term consequences for our societies and the global economy. It is imperative to implement a gender-sensitive approach in the responses to the pandemic and in the recovery phase ? to make these measures more effective and ensure that no one is left behind. In the wake of COVID-19, it is also a time to highlight and magnify inequalities and the multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination faced by women and girls. In many instances, women may be overburdened by unpaid work, unable to continue their learning at a distance, and facing growing domestic violence. 

Join us for this virtual forum to:
1) explore the challenges faced by women and girls during the pandemic (Ms Nazreen);
2) discuss work and employability of women in various trades (Dr Lim Soo Jin); and
3) discuss gender mainstreaming and intersectionality of women in a pandemic (Dr Premalatha)
