Richard Greenblatt (programmer)
Richard D. Greenblatt is an American computer programmer. Along with Bill Gosper, he may be considered to have founded the hacker community, holds a place of distinction in the communities of the programming language Lisp and of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Greenblatt was born in Portland, Oregon on December 25, 1944, his family moved to Pennsylvania when he was a child. He moved to Columbia, Missouri with his mother and sister when his parents divorced. Greenblatt enrolled in MIT in the fall of 1962, around his second term as an undergraduate student, he found his way to MIT's famous Tech Model Railroad Club. At that time, Peter Samson had written a program in Fortran for the IBM 709 series machines, to automate the tedious business of writing the intricate timetables for the Railroad Club's vast model train layout. Greenblatt felt compelled to implement a Fortran compiler for the PDP-1, which lacked one. There was no computer time available to debug the compiler, or to type it into the computer.
Years elements of this compiler were typed in and "showed signs of life". However, the perceived need for a Fortran compiler had evaporated by so the compiler was not pursued further; this and other experiences at TMRC the influence of Alan Kotok, who worked at DEC and was the junior partner of the design team for the PDP-6 computer, led Greenblatt to the AI Lab, where he proceeded to become a "hacker's hacker" noted for his programming acumen as described in Steven Levy's Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution, as acknowledged by Gerald Jay Sussman and Harold Abelson when they said they were fortunate to have been apprentice programmers at the feet of Bill Gosper and Richard Greenblatt. Indeed, he spent so much time programming the Programmed Data Processor machines there that he failed out of MIT as a first-term junior and had to take a job at a firm, Charles Adams Associates, until the AI Lab hired him about 6 months later. In 1979, he and Tom Knight were the main designers of the MIT Lisp machine.
He founded Lisp Machines, Inc. according to his vision of an ideal hacker-friendly computer company, as opposed to the more commercial ideals of Symbolics. He was the main implementor of Maclisp on the PDP-6, he wrote Mac Hack, the first computer program to play tournament-level chess and the first to compete in a human chess tournament. AI skeptic Hubert Dreyfus, who famously made the claim that computers would not be able to play high-quality chess, was beaten by the program, marking the start of "respectable" computer chess performances. In 1977, unbeaten chess champion Bobby Fischer played three games in Cambridge, Massachusetts against Greenblatt's computer program, Fischer won all of them. Greenblatt, along with Tom Knight and Stewart Nelson, co-wrote the Incompatible Timesharing System, a influential time-sharing operating system for the PDP-6 and PDP-10 used at MIT.

Evelyn Greenblatt Howren
Evelyn Greenblatt Howren was an American woman aviator from Atlanta, Georgia. She helped organize the first all-woman squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, was one of the first women air traffic controllers in the U. S. and was in the first class of Women Airforce Service Pilots in World War II. After the war she remained active in the aviation business in Georgia for many years, she was the third woman inducted into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame. Evelyn Greenblatt was born in Atlanta in 1917, the daughter of Samuel Robert Greenblatt and Bessie Shear Greenblatt, she attended Vanderbilt University. It was while at Vanderbilt she took her first flying lesson in 1939. After graduation she took flight instruction at Atlanta's airport Her parents had refused to pay for pilot classes, so she had to do it in secret, sometimes pawning items to come up with cash.. She had her first solo flight in a Piper J-3 Cub in early 1941, it was only after the solo flight. Greenblatt received her private pilot licence on November 3, 1941.
The next month she joined the just-formed Civil Air Patrol and helped organize its first all-woman squadron. She remained active in the organization for years after. In June 1942 she was among three pilots named to a class of eight women air traffic control trainees, becoming one of the first women air traffic controllers in the United States. With an excellent record and over 300 flying hours, she was released from her air traffic control duty in November 1942 to join the first class of Women Airforce Service Pilots, she was one of the first class of twenty-three who graduated on April 24, 1943 at Ellington Field in Houston. During the war she was assigned to Love Field in Dallas and Peterson Army Air Base in Colorado Springs. Greenblatt spent 16 months ferrying various planes from their manufacturers to military training centers and elsewhere, she flew 30 different military aircraft including the B-17 and B-24 bombers and six types of fighter aircraft. By the end of the war she had logged 3,000 hours of flight time.
She was sent with other women in the spring of 1944 to the Army Air Forces School of Applied Tactics in Orlando, which she completed. But she never became an officer because the military decided to keep its women employees civilians. At that point she went to Colorado Springs to become a flight instrument instructor. "Most of the boys didn't seem to resent being instructed by a woman," she recalled in 1994. She was honorably discharged on December 20, 1944. After the war the WASPs did not receive G. I. benefits, so Greenblatt lobbied the United States Congress for six years during the 1950s to change that. It wasn't until 1977 that she and the other women who flew in World War II received Veterans Administration benefits. In 1947 she founded Inc. in Atlanta with another aviator, Hillman V. Howren; the aviation company offered charter service, flying lessons, aerial photography classes and other services. The couple ran, they sold their businesses to Lockheed in 1968. It was, she helped organize the Atlanta Women's Aero Club.
She flew in the All-Women Trans-continental Air Race in 1951. She was appointed a captain in the United States Air Force Reserve that same year. At that time it was still rare for women to be pilots - there were only seven women licensed pilots in Atlanta in 1951. Howren served as secretary-treasurer of the Georgia Aviation Trade Association from 1950 to 1965, she was "instrumental" in promoting state legislation to enhance aviation in Georgia as an aviation lobbyist. After retirement she and her husband moved to south Florida and spent their time traveling and deep-sea fishing. In 1994 she became only the third woman named to the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame, she died February 9, 1998 of lung failure at Emory University Hospital and was buried at Crestlawn Memorial Park in Atlanta. Her husband had died the year before; the William Breman Jewish Heritage & Holocaust Museum in Atlanta holds a collection of her papers and other artifacts related to her.

Yiddish is the historical language of the Ashkenazi Jews. It originated during the 9th century in Central Europe, providing the nascent Ashkenazi community with a High German-based vernacular fused with elements taken from Hebrew and Aramaic as well as from Slavic languages and traces of Romance languages. Yiddish is written with a vocalized version of the Hebrew alphabet; the earliest surviving references date from the 12th century and call the language לשון־אַשכּנז or טײַטש, a variant of tiutsch, the contemporary name for Middle High German. Colloquially, the language is sometimes called מאַמע־לשון, distinguishing it from לשון־קודש, meaning Hebrew and Aramaic; the term "Yiddish", short for Yidish Taitsh, did not become the most used designation in the literature until the 18th century. In the late 19th and into the 20th century the language was more called "Jewish" in non-Jewish contexts, but "Yiddish" is again the more common designation today. Modern Yiddish has two major forms. Eastern Yiddish is far more common today.
It includes Southeastern and Northeastern dialects. Eastern Yiddish differs from Western both by its far greater size and by the extensive inclusion of words of Slavic origin. Western Yiddish is divided into Southwestern and Northwestern dialects. Yiddish is used in a number of Haredi Jewish communities worldwide; the term "Yiddish" is used in the adjectival sense, synonymously with "Jewish", to designate attributes of Yiddishkeit. Prior to the Holocaust, there were 11–13 million speakers of Yiddish among 17 million Jews worldwide. 85% of the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust were Yiddish speakers, leading to a massive decline in the use of the language. Assimilation following World War II and aliyah, immigration to Israel, further decreased the use of Yiddish both among survivors and among Yiddish-speakers from other countries. However, the number of speakers is increasing in Hasidic communities; the established view is that, as with other Jewish languages, Jews speaking distinct languages learned new co-territorial vernaculars, which they Judaized.
In the case of Yiddish, this scenario sees it as emerging when speakers of Zarphatic and other Judeo-Romance languages began to acquire varieties of Middle High German, from these groups the Ashkenazi community took shape. What German base lies behind the earliest form of Yiddish is disputed. In Max Weinreich's model, Jewish speakers of Old French or Old Italian who were literate in either liturgical Hebrew or Aramaic, or both, migrated through Southern Europe to settle in the Rhine Valley in an area known as Lotharingia extending over parts of Germany and France. Both Weinreich and Solomon Birnbaum developed this model further in the mid-1950s. In Weinreich's view, this Old Yiddish substrate bifurcated into two distinct versions of the language and Eastern Yiddish, they retained the Semitic vocabulary and constructions needed for religious purposes and created a Judeo-German form of speech, sometimes not accepted as a autonomous language. Linguistic research has finessed the Weinreich model or provided alternative approaches to the language's origins, with points of contention being the characterization of its Germanic base, the source of its Hebrew/Aramaic adstrata, the means and location of this fusion.
Some theorists argue. The two main candidates for the germinal matrix of Yiddish, the Rhineland and Bavaria, are not incompatible. There may have been parallel developments in the two regions, seeding the Western and Eastern dialects of Modern Yiddish. Dovid Katz proposes that Yiddish emerged from contact between speakers of High German and Aramaic-speaking Jews from the Middle East; the lines of development proposed by the different theories do not rule out the others. In more recent work, Wexler has argued that Eastern Yiddish is unrelated genetically to Western Yiddish. Wexler's model has met with little academic support, strong critical challenges among historical linguists. By the 10th century, a distinctive Jewish culture had formed in Central Europe which came to be called אַשכּנזי Ashkenazi, "Ashkenazi Jews, from Hebrew: אַשכּנז Ashkenaz, the medieval Hebrew name for northern Europe and Germany. Ashkenaz was centered on the Rhineland and the Palatinate, in what is now the westernmost part of Germany.

A given name is a part of a person's personal name. It identifies a person, differentiates that person from the other members of a group who have a common surname; the term given name refers to the fact that the name is bestowed upon a person to a child by their parents at or close to the time of birth. A Christian name, a first name, given at baptism, is now typically given by the parents at birth. In informal situations, given names are used in a familiar and friendly manner. In more formal situations, a person's surname is more used—unless a distinction needs to be made between people with the same surname; the idioms "on a first-name basis" and "being on first-name terms" refer to the familiarity inherent in addressing someone by their given name. By contrast, a surname, inherited, is shared with other members of one's immediate family. Regnal names and religious or monastic names are special given names bestowed upon someone receiving a crown or entering a religious order; such a person typically becomes known chiefly by that name.
The order given name – family name known as the Western order, is used throughout most European countries and in countries that have cultures predominantly influenced by European culture, including North and South America. The order family name – given name known as the Eastern order, is used in East Asia, as well as in Southern and North-Eastern parts of India, in Hungary; this order is common in Austria and Bavaria, in France, Belgium and Italy because of the influence of bureaucracy, which puts the family name before the given name. In China and Korea, part of the given name may be shared among all members of a given generation within a family and extended family or families, in order to differentiate those generations from other generations; the order given name – father's family name – mother's family name is used in Spanish-speaking countries to acknowledge the families of both parents. Today the order can be changed in Spain and Uruguay using given name – mother's family name – father's family name.
The order given name – mother's family name – father's family name is used in Portuguese-speaking countries to acknowledge the families of both parents. In many Western cultures, people have more than one given name. One of those, not the first in succession might be used as the name which that person goes by, such as in the cases of John Edgar Hoover and Mary Barbara Hamilton Cartland. A child's given name or names are chosen by the parents soon after birth. If a name is not assigned at birth, one may be given at a naming ceremony, with family and friends in attendance. In most jurisdictions, a child's name at birth is a matter of public record, inscribed on a birth certificate, or its equivalent. In western cultures, people retain the same given name throughout their lives. However, in some cases these names may be changed by repute. People may change their names when immigrating from one country to another with different naming conventions. In certain jurisdictions, a government-appointed registrar of births may refuse to register a name that may cause a child harm, considered offensive or which are deemed impractical.
In France, the agency can refer the case to a local judge. Some jurisdictions, such as Sweden, restrict the spelling of names. Parents may choose a name because of its meaning; this may be a personal or familial meaning, such as giving a child the name of an admired person, or it may be an example of nominative determinism, in which the parents give the child a name that they believe will be lucky or favourable for the child. Given names most derive from the following categories: Aspirational personal traits. For example, the name Clement means "merciful". English examples include Faith and August. Occupations, for example George means "earth-worker", i.e. "farmer". Circumstances of birth, for example Thomas meaning "twin" or the Latin name Quintus, traditionally given to the fifth male child. Objects, for example Peter means "rock" and Edgar means "rich spear". Physical characteristics, for example Calvin means "bald". Variations on another name to change the sex of the name or to translate from another language.
Surnames, for example Winston and Ross. Such names can honour other branches of a family, where the surname would not otherwise be passed down. Places, for example Brittany and Lorraine. Time of birth, for example day of the week, as in Kofi Annan, whose given name means "born on Friday", or the holiday on which one was born, for example, the name Natalie meaning "born on Christmas day" in Latin. Tuesday, May, or June. Combination of the above, for example the Armenian name Sirvart means "love rose". In many cultures, given names are reused to commemorate ancestors or those who are admired, resulting in a limited repertoire of names that sometimes vary by orthography; the most familiar example of this, to Western readers, is the use of Biblical and saints' names in most of the Christian countries (with Ethiopia, in which names were ideals or abstractions
