As the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, as well as war hero, Alan Turing’s contributions were far ranging and path breaking. Turing is a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand.”The shortlist included Mary Anning, Paul Dirac, Rosalind Franklin, William Herschel and Caroline Herschel, Dorothy Hodgkin, Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, Stephen Hawking, James Clerk Maxwell, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Ernest Rutherford, Frederick Sanger and Alan Turing.The new £50 note will celebrate Alan Turing and his work with computers. As shown in the concept image, the design on the reverse of the note will feature:A photo of Turing taken in 1951 by Elliott & Fry, which is part of the Photographs Collection at the National Portrait Gallery.A table and mathematical formulae from Turing’s seminal 1936 paper On Computable Numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem. This paper is widely recognised as being foundational for computer science.The Automatic Computing Engine (ACE) Pilot Machine, which was developed at the National Physical Laboratory as the trial model of Turing’s pioneering ACE design. The ACE was one of the first electronic stored-program digital computers.Technical drawings for the British Bombe, the machine specified by Turing and one of the primary tools used to break Enigma-enciphered messages during WWII.A quote from Alan Turing, given in an interview to The Times newspaper on 11 June 1949: “This is only a foretaste of what is to come, and only the shadow of what is going to be.”Turing’s signature from the visitor’s book at Bletchley Park in 1947, where he worked during WWII.Ticker tape depicting Alan Turing’s birth date (23 June 1912) in binary code.

first_imgEast Baltimore, Oct. 13.WW photo: Joseph PietteOn Oct. 13, community activists along with friends and families of victims of police brutality gathered for the East Baltimore Peoples Assembly for Justice for Anthony Anderson Sr. The outdoor assembly took place on the vacant lot by a makeshift memorial marking the spot where Anderson was brutally killed in front of family members by three Baltimore undercover police officers on Sept. 21.The police claim that Anderson “choked and died after trying to swallow a bag of drugs” was exposed as a lie on Oct. 2 with the release of an official autopsy showing Anderson died from a ruptured spleen caused by “blunt force trauma” that broke as many as ten ribs. No drugs were found in his system.The Baltimore Peoples Assembly, organized earlier this year in response to growing police terror, conducted its own investigation of witnesses who described how the police ran up behind Anderson, grabbed him around the knees, hoisted him in the air and brutally slammed him to the ground.Anderson was the thirteenth person killed by Baltimore police since January 2012. The city has paid out nearly $17 million over the last two years in police brutality settlements. It spent another $10.4 million defending lawsuits in court. Meanwhile, much needed recreation centers are being closed because the city claims it lacks funds.Gathering participants from as far away as Virginia and Pennsylvania, the East Baltimore Peoples Assembly was the second such community gathering this year to address the growing epidemic of police abuse in Baltimore. As with the first Assembly in June, the moving testimony from community members was a clarion call to action.The Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon, a BPA organizer and president of the Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, opened the rally in what he called “the Anthony Anderson Field.” Witherspoon told those gathered, “We know why we are here. Black women are being strip searched on the streets; drug dealers are being robbed by members of the Baltimore Police Department. Every single month we’ve been at a vigil or a rally for someone killed by the police. Our communities are under assault and we won’t take it anymore!”Marcella Holloman described the killing of her son, Maurice Donald Johnson, by Baltimore police at her home on May 19. Holloman called the police when her mentally ill son began to exhibit erratic behavior. Since Johnson’s episodic illness was registered in the police data base she expected they would take him to the hospital for treatment. But rather than waiting for an ambulance, the two responding officers entered Holloman’s home where Johnson was sequestered and shot him three times.Renee Washington, whose fiancée was brutally beaten and killed by three Baltimore police officers in 2001, told the crowd, “The police are not in our neighborhoods to protect us. They are here to take us out, one by one, the men first.”Nakia Washington, whose boyfriend was killed in March by police who shot him six times in the chest, condemned the BPD’s practice of giving paid leave to officers under investigation for brutality. “The cops kill a Black man and they get a paid vacation — what kind of message is that?” Washington said. She urged people to speak up about what’s happening in their communities. “It won’t stop happening unless you stand up.”The outraged community has called for the jailing of the three Baltimore police officers — Todd A. Strohman, Gregg Boyd and Michael Vodarick — who killed Anderson and then lied about it.Members and friends of the Anderson family were at the EBPA. Anderson’s younger brother, Leon Anderson, described his own experience with police harassment while driving-while-Black. “It doesn’t matter where I am in Baltimore. Every time I turn around the same police officer is giving me a traffic ticket. We need to come together and put an end to this madness.”Sharon Black, a BPA organizer, urged people to come out on Oct. 17 when BPA activists will confront the Police Department over the confirmation of Anthony Batts as Baltimore’s new police commissioner.As chief of police in Oakland, Calif., Batts presided over numerous problems of police brutality and abuse. In January, U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson warned that the Oakland Police Department would be placed under federal control unless the Department sped up the pace of its reforms. Black told those assembled, “We need to give Batts the kind of welcome that he’ll know that police brutality and terrorism will not be tolerated in Baltimore City.”She urged people to carry cameras as they patrol their communities to record police harassment and terrorism. “We have the power to take back our communities, to get the occupiers out — from the rich running things in City Hall to the pit bull police they’ve put out in our streets. We demand community control now!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award + posts Facebook Linkedin ReddIt printTCU baseball looked to be returning to the dominant play they were known for in the 2010s before their season was ended by COVID-19. Photo by Jack WallaceWhen Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus on March 11, the sports world turned upside down.Minutes later, the NBA suspended its season indefinitely, a move that caused the seriousness of the pandemic to sink in for sports fans worldwide.The next day, the NCAA canceled all remaining winter and spring championships.The move was one of caution, but it brought heartbreak to dozens of TCU student-athletes who lost their chance to show the nation their talents at the highest level. Here are the top five moments that Frog fans missed out on because of the COVID-19 pandemic.No. 5: Football plays first spring game in two yearsWho will compete with Max Duggan for the starting quarterback job? Can anyone fill Jalen Reagor’s role at wide receiver? Who has gained the most ground over the offseason? After TCU’s spring game was canceled in 2019 due to lack of depth, Frog fans looked to answer all of these questions and more at the event previously scheduled for March 28.After TCU missed a bowl appearance in 2019, Frog fans wonder how quarterback Max Duggan (15) and the team will bounce back. Photo by Heesoo Yang.Fans will now have to wait until the Frogs open their season at California Berkley on Sept. 5 to see just how good Patterson’s squad will be in 2020.No. 4: Rifle aims to defend their national titlePerhaps TCU’s most dominant sport, the Horned Frog rifle team looked just as strong in the 2019-20 season as the year prior when they came home with the national title. Before their season ended abruptly, TCU went 12-1, with their one loss coming in nail-biting fashion to No. 1 West Virginia.After winning the Patriot Conference Title, the Frogs would have looked to defend their title on March 13 and 14 at the NCAA Championships. This past weekend, six members of the team (the second-highest total nationally) earned a total of 13 All-American honors from the College Rifle Coaches Association and National Rifle Association.TCU Rifle competes against Ole Miss on Feb. 1, 2020. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com.No. 3: Baseball looks to return to the CWS As the 2010s came to a close, D1Baseball.com named TCU Baseball the Big 12 Team of the Decade after the Frogs made four-straight trips to the College World Series from 2014-17.TCU fell short of that mark in 2018 and 2019, but the 2020 season established themselves as a force to be reckoned with early on with dominant pitching different (second in Big 12 with 2.40 team ERA).Not only did the Frogs start the season at 11-4, but they were blowing by their opponents. When the season ended, TCU had outscored opposing teams 107-44.The Frogs had also yet to lose a series, with two of their three series wins coming as sweeps. TCU’s best win of the year came on March 7 as the Frogs defeated No. 2 UCLA 8-4.No. 2: Desmond Bane plays in his final game for TCUThe suspending of the NBA came after TCU lost to Kansas State in the first round of the Big 12 tournament, 53-49. Though the defeat ended any chance the Frogs had at making the NCAA Tournament, TCU still had a chance to make their third NIT Tournament appearance in four years.Along with the NCAA tournament, the NIT was canceled amid the COVID-19 outbreak, meaning senior Desmond Bane would never play again in the purple and white.While he had played well in his final game (16 points, nine rebounds), the game was not a proper representation for how much he has meant to the program.Bane leaves TCU as its all-time leader in three-pointers made, games played and games won. He ranks third on the school’s all-time scoring list and in the top ten in most other categories.No. 1: Women’s basketball finally makes the Big DanceWhen head coach Raegan Pebley came to TCU in 2014, her goal was to get the Frogs to their first NCAA Tournament since 2010.Over the next five seasons, Pebley’s team got about as close as you could get, making four WNIT appearances. In 2019, TCU was one of the first few teams left out of the NCAA tournament field.The Frogs left no doubt in 2020. Going 22-7 overall and 13-5 in conference play, TCU finished second in the Big 12, their highest conference finish since 2011.Heading into the Big 12 tournament, the Frogs were listed as a No. 7 seed in the NCAA tournament by ESPN’s Charlie Creme.Senior Kianna Ray hugs head coach Raegan Pebley during TCU’s senior day presentation. Photo by Heesoo Yang.With the six Frogs graduating in May, the news hit especially hard as their years of hard work would not be rewarded with a March Madness appearance.While an extra year of eligibility has been given to those who compete in spring sports, winter athletes were not given that opportunity. Pebley, along with her players, is hoping that the NCAA will give the seniors affected a “crack at competing for a championship with their current team.”Amid this COVID-19 outbreak, a lot of uncertainty rests in the hearts of everyone. Even if sports return in the fall, Frog fans will forever have to wonder what could have been for TCU Athletics in the infamous spring of 2020.

This same storm system will move east Tuesday and the East Coast should expect storms with damaging winds later on. The biggest threat for damaging winds will be from southern Virginia to North Carolina, including Norfolk, Raleigh-Durham, Fayetteville and just north of Wilmington and Charlotte. There is also a small chance for isolated tornadoes.Elsewhere, seven fires are currently burning in California and there were a couple of new fires that ignited Monday in southern California around Los Angeles and San Bernardino. The Palisades brushfire in L.A. had caused a local evacuation but, since Monday, it has been lifted and the fire is 10% contained. The Little Mountain Fire continues to burn Tuesday morning. It is currently 19 acres big with three homes damaged and 40 more threatened. On Tuesday, the big story will be the heat in southern California with highs in the mid 90’s in L.A. and near 90 in San Diego.There is a wind advisory just north of Los Angeles as well where winds could gust Tuesday morning up to 50 mph. But the big wind event is coming later this week starting on Wednesday in northern California around the San Francisco Bay area and moving into southern California for Thursday and Friday.

first_imgBefore an audience of priests, seminarians and students, Bishop Kevin Rhoades warned “there is no excuse today for the confusion and errors about priestly identity and mission that were prevalent a few decades ago.”Calling for Catholic priests to fulfill the call of becoming “living images and living instruments of Christ,” Rhoades delivered his address at the Moreau Seminary auditorium on Thursday night in honor of the Church’s “Year for Priests.”“We should be filled with a spirit of wonder when contemplating the mystery of the priesthood,” Rhoades said.As part of his overnight stay at the Moreau Seminary, Rhodes’ address focused on the theme of “Christ the High Priest,” telling his audience that it is not possible to talk about this area of Catholicism without returning to “the priesthood of Christ.”“Only Christ is the true priest, the others being only his ministers,” Rhoades said, quoting St. Thomas Aquinas.Rhoades, who was ordained as a priest in 1983, was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend last November.For Bishop Rhodes, life in the priesthood has been one of reflection.“To understand and appreciate the nature and the meaning of the Catholic priesthood, one needs to reflect deeply on the priestly consecration and mission of Jesus Christ,” Rhoades said.This reflecting, he continued, finds roots in the New Testament’s Letter to the Hebrews.Though describing it as one of the most challenging books of the New Testament, Bishop Rhoades pointed out that Hebrews is significant for its “priestly Christology, a presentation for the identity and mission of Christ in priestly terms.”In return, the Bishop said, Jesus gives comfort to the priest in his Priestly Prayer found in the 17th chapter in the Gospel of John.“He is praying for us,” he said of this passage. “He is praying for the Church.”He likewise stressed the importance for the faithful to pray for protection in the Church’s mission as well, especially in light of the resurgence of new sex abuse scandals.“I wonder if we would be in the mess we’re in after the priest and clergy abuse scandals if we were praying for protection from the evil one,” Rhoades said.In the present day, the Bishop also said it was “absolutely essential” when promoting vocations to present the beauty of the priesthood.This responsibility, he said, falls on parishes, schools, religious education programs, campus ministry and other youth ministry groups.“Such authentic catechesis can and does inspire young men to consider a possible vocation to share in the priestly consecration of Jesus,” Rhoades said.last_img read more
