Symptoms include the following:

  • A feeling you can hear but not understand.

  • Chronic ear infections.
  • Confusing people’s words.
  • Dizziness.
  • Increasing the volume of the radio or television to the point it irritates others.
  • Ringing sound in the ears.
  • Difficulty to hear conversations.

Screenings include the following:

  • A pure-tone test to determine if hearing levels are at or below the screening levels at key speech frequencies.
  • A tympanogram measurement to determine middle ear function.
  • An otoscopic evaluation to determine if there are outer ear issues such as cerumen (ear wax) or other problems that need attention.

In a culture torn between celebrating the transgender community and trying to erase its very existence, your choices as a parent of a child who comes out seem straightforward: you either accept and support, or you don’t. But even for those of us who unhesitatingly choose love, we may find ourselves ill prepared to make the transition from parenting the child we knew to the one who needs us now — especially when guilt resulting from a sense of loss leaves you feeling like a bad parent. 

Join ASU faculty member Stephanie L. Downie, lecturer in the faculty of languages and cultures, for this presentation from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 21, in the Cronkite/Eight building, room 128. The event is part of the annual ASU Humanities Lecture Series, organized by the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU's Downtown Phoenix campus.

Downie's teaching focus is the  English 102: ProMod courses, where students engage in community-based issues through sustained, focused inquiry.

In this lecture, Robert Rosette (JD ‘96) will discuss utilizing sovereignty as an economic development resource for developing a tribal government economy. In doing so, this lecture will discuss the legal risks tribes must maneuver to establish and evolve a business opportunity without the capital or employee resources needed to do so. In making his point, he will be looking at the current arm-of-the-tribe test to demonstrate how it’s becoming harder and harder for tribes to pursue self-determination and self-governance.

Rosette formed Rosette, LLP to exclusively represent Indian tribal governments in all facets of federal Indian law, including finance, commercial transactions, economic development, gaming and litigation.

Having obtained a Master's of Business Administration in finance, Rosette maintains a unique and keen understanding of financial transactions, which is evidenced by over $4 billion in economic development and governmental infrastructure projects for over 30 tribes in eight States. Rosette has raised such capital through various forms of financing, including direct bank loans, taxable and tax exempt bond financing, venture capital, development loans, and bridge financing for his tribal clients.

About the lecture

Race, sex, religion, crime, liberty, patriotism, equality. The Supreme Court’s treatment of these incendiary topics has indelibly shaped public education and the constitutional rights of students around the country. In his new book, Justin Driver maintains that since the 1970s, the Supreme Court has regularly abdicated responsibility in protecting students’ rights, risking transforming public schools into Constitution-free zones and in turn jeopardizing our basic constitutional order. How have courts evaluated corporal punishment, random drug tests, strip searches, and transgender students accessing restrooms? Join Justin Driver, author of "The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind," as he analyzes these pressing legal questions regarding public schools and their place in American society.

Guest lecturer

Justin Driver is the Harry N. Wyatt Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School. A graduate of Brown, Oxford (where he was a Marshall Scholar), and Harvard Law School (where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review), Driver clerked for Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Sandra Day O’Connor. A recipient of the American Society for Legal History’s William Nelson Cromwell Article Prize, Driver has a distinguished publication record in the nation’s leading law reviews. He has also written extensively for lay audiences, including pieces in Slate, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Republic, where he was a contributing editor. A member of the American Law Institute and of the American Constitution Society’s Academic Advisory Board, Driver is also an editor of the Supreme Court Review. Before attending law school, Driver received a master’s degree in education from Duke and taught civics and American history to high school students. His first book, "The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind," was published by Pantheon in September 2018.

Lunch will be provided.

In the first half of 2018, more than 1,000 people were killed or wounded in mass shootings in the US. No wonder gun violence is a top concern for most Americans. But how do we deal with this crisis? Stricter gun laws? Better law enforcement? The Centers for Disease Control calls gun violence a public health issue, not a legal one. But is it a health concern? What does it mean to examine gun violence as a health issue? Does it change the debate, and what solutions are likely to result?

Join the conversation as experts discuss the implications of seeing gun violence as a health issue rather than a legal issue. The event includes audience Q&A and will be recorded as a live podcast.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

This event is part of the "We Need To Talk: Tough Conversations About Health" series hosted by ASU's College of Health Solutions.

Is it OK to take Ritalin or Adderall if you don’t have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder? Both are stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD and similar conditions, but more and more college students are taking them to stay awake, suppress their appetite or just because they say it makes them feel smarter when they’re taking a test. They’re buying them from fellow students who have prescriptions. Is this safe? Is it legal?

Join us for a discussion about the sharing of ADHD medications on college campuses. A panel of experts will explore this issue, and the event includes time for audience Q&A. The session will also be recorded as a live podcast.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
