In recent years, there's been a revival of interest in Golda Meir, both in the US and in Israel. As an immigrant who came from the US to Israel, her image symbolizes very different – sometimes even opposing ideas in Israel and in the US. After many decades of deliberate disregarding her term of office as a prime minister her legacy as a state’s woman and labor minister is being re-examined and gaining recognition. Furthermore, in contemporary pop culture her figure appears frequently, suggesting a new role model in a gender aware society. In this Lecture we willexplore Golda’s political legacy as of the one of the only woman diplomats at the time and her relevance to today's popular culture.

In 2010, rumors in the information security world told of a new type of malware capable of defeating any firewall and evading antivirus software. And despite the rumors, no one has yet come across such sophisticated and dangerous malware. Then Stuxnet appeared, a virtual 'worm' that caused heavy damage to the Iranian uranium enrichment plant and shocked the experts. Stuxnet was not 'just' the most sophisticated malware in history - it was an entirely new type of weapon, ushering in a new era: the era of cyberwarfare.

They intricately explore issues of immigration, identity, and cultural integration in their work, shedding light on the experiences of those who have navigated complex journeys to make Israel their home. Through painting, these artists challenge traditional norms, offering a fresh and thought-provoking take on these important societal issues.
Why do we have a good feeling about a certain decision and a bad feeling about another? If we could make emotionless decisions, would they necessarily be more correct for us? We tend to describe ourselves as rational people who act from cost-benefit considerations. However, our degree of control over decisions is little to zero. Studies done in recent years show that eighty percent of our decisions are made without conscious control. These unconscious processes are controlled by emotion to a greater extent than we would like to admit. What is the place of emotion in making the decision? Can we trust our feelings? The lecture will allow a glimpse of what is happening in our minds and an understanding of the unconscious elements that direct our decisions.
