George Collins Oration 2015

Last year, Swinburne was touched by great sadness when our Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research and Development, George Collins, passed away unexpectedly in November. George was a highly respected applied physicist, trusted colleague and friend of Swinburne and a fervent believer in the importance of applied research. The George Collins Memorial Fund was established to allow colleagues and friends who wish to commemorate George's life and commitment to research by making a gift. Donations to this fund have been used to support the George Collins Oration so that George's passion for people and research may continue. The oration is delivered by three researchers, who each give a 15-minute presentation on the innovative research they have been undertaking in physics and astrophysics, two fields of which George was a strong supporter. Each presentation is followed by a live musical performance by George's family members to honour his love of music. Recorded on Wednesday 29 July 2015.

Black Saturday's pre-history (Inside Story)

Black Saturday seared itself into the history books and the memories of many on 7 February 2009. The grieving, the slow recovery and the debates continue. Over missions of years, the world's tallest flowering plants, the great Mountain Ash eucalypts of the forests of Victoria, have evolved as "fire weeds" ensuring their survival by spreading their seeds in ash beds open to the light previously shadowed by their towering canopies. They die to survive. Their cycles are much longer than ours. But their special relationship to the inevitability of devastating fires withing the "fire flume" of the Victorian bush offers a tough but essential lesson for the local communities and policy makers at both state and federal levels, as historian Tom Griffiths (Australian National University) tells Peter Clarke.

Do synonyms exist? (Inside Story)

They might have started off meaning the same things, but words acquire all kinds of baggage along the way - which means that mutts, hounds, curs and canine quadrupeds aren't interchangeable, despite what the thesaurus might imply.
