Edward W. Morley House

The Edward W. Morley House is a historic house and National Historic Landmark at 26 Westland Avenue in West Hartford, Connecticut, it is notable as the home of the scientist Edward W. Morley from 1906 to 1923. Morley is famous for his collaboration with Albert A. Michelson on the Michelson-Morley experiment and for his work on the atomic weights of hydrogen and oxygen; the Morley House is an architecturally undistinguished 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, with a hip roof and a single chimney rising from the left side. The roof is pierced by hip-roofed dormers; the front of the house is spanned by a single-story porch with a low-pitch hip roof and a gable above the stairs, which rise to the front door. The house was built in 1906 for Edward W. Morley, who made it his home until his death in 1923, has been little altered since then. Morley was born in New Jersey in 1838, educated at home, he graduated from Williams College in 1860 studied theology at the Andover Theological Seminary before accepting a position teaching chemistry at Western Reserve College in 1869.

His reputation as a leading chemist and physicist was cemented during his tenure there, contributing to the apparatus of the famous Michelson-Morley experiment, which proved that light was not carried by any sort of luminiferous aether. His most significant solo contribution to scientific knowledge was the calculation of the atomic weights of hydrogen and oxygen, determining the composition of water from these elements. Morley retired in 1905, settling in this house, continuing to run experiments in a laboratory in the garage until his death in 1923.

Mastermind School

Mastermind School is a British-curriculum schools in Bangladesh. It offers English-medium education to students from play group age to grade 12, leading to the IGCSE or GCE'O' Level and GCE A-Level examinations, held under the Edexcel & Cambridge examination board; the main buildings are located with a branch in Uttara. The school's principal is Syed Fakruddin Ahmed, who doubles as the senior physics teacher at the school, it has over 3000 students, 300 teaching staff. It has a debating society, a sports club, a newsletter club, a community service club, it runs on the British curriculum. Mastermind School won "The Most Versatile School" award in 2011 and 2015, was the Champion of the junior category in 2015 at the Biotechnology Fest, Hosted by City Montessory School, in Lucknow, India. Mastermind School provides extra-curricular activities of community service and sports; the school clubs are run by an executive committee, selected for each club. Every year the Mastermind Community Service Club takes part in charitable works, including charity food sales, paying visits at Ashiq Foundation, collection of winter clothes for charity distribution, a blood donation camp and art competition for autistic children.

The school was accused by the newspaper Daily Star of excessive use of corporal punishment. In April 2011 vice principal Neera Habib was said to have physically assaulted seven students for protesting against the expulsion of their friends; the vice principal was said to have assaulted other students for straying off of the strict dress code. She was fired without an official announcement from the school itself. Ahmede Hussain an English teacher of this school and affiliated with the Daily Star newspaper, left Mastermind after the publication of this news; the school is one of those.

John Launchbury

John Launchbury is an American and British computer scientist, Chief Scientist at Galois, Inc. He directed one of DARPA’s technical offices, where he oversaw nation-scale scientific and engineering research in cybersecurity, data analysis, artificial intelligence, he is known for research and entrepreneurship in the implementation and application of functional programming languages. In 2010, Launchbury was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery. Launchbury received first-class honors in mathematics from Oxford University in 1985, an M. Sc. in computation in 1986. He holds a Ph. D. in computing science from the University of Glasgow. In 1991, the Cambridge University Press published his thesis, Projection Factorizations in Partial Evaluation, after it won the British Computer Society's distinguished dissertation prize; as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow, Launchbury focused his early research on the semantics and analysis of lazy functional languages and was one of the contributing designers of the Haskell programming language, which Apple developers cited as one of the influences behind the Swift programming language.

In 1993, Launchbury provided a formal description of lazy evaluation, addressing challenges in analyzing a program’s storage requirements. The operational semantics is cited in research on Haskell. In the context of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler team, Launchbury established an effective partnership with Simon L. Peyton Jones to write a number of papers that influenced the design of Haskell, their 1995 paper on State in Haskell introduced the “IO monad” as a mathematically-clean practical way of expressing effects on the external world, solidified the “do-notation” Launchbury had introduced earlier. Their papers on unboxed values and removal of intermediate data structures addressed many of the efficiency challenges inherent in lazy evaluation. In 1994, Launchbury relocated to the West Coast of the United States, becoming a full professor at the Oregon Graduate Institute in 2000, his research there addressed the creation and optimization of domain-specific programming languages ranging from fundamental research in combining disparate semantic elements, through embedding DSLs in Haskell, to applied research for modeling and reasoning about very-large scale integration micro-architectures.

Launchbury founded Galois Inc. in 1999 to address challenges in information assurance through the application of functional programming and formal methods. He served as the company’s CEO and Chief Scientist from 2000 to 2014. Under Launchbury’s direction, Galois Inc. developed the Cryptol domain-specific language for specifying and verifying cryptographic implementations. Designed for use by the National Security Agency, the language was made available to the public in 2008. Launchbury is the holder of two patents on cryptographic structures in data storage and one on effective mechanisms for configuring programmable cryptographic components. In 2014, Launchbury joined DARPA as a program manager, as director of the Information Innovation Office in 2015. Launchbury led programs in homomorphic cryptography, cybersecurity for vehicles and other embedded systems, data privacy. In 2017, Launchbury rejoined Galois as Chief Scientist. Launchbury published a theological perspective on the Moral Exemplar interpretation of the doctrine of atonement, entitled Change Us, Not God: Biblical Meditations on the Death of Jesus
