Wolfram Language

The Wolfram Language is a general multi-paradigm computational language developed by Wolfram Research. It emphasizes symbolic computation, functional programming, rule-based programming and can employ arbitrary structures and data. The'Wolfram Language' is a general multi-paradigm computational language developed by Wolfram Research and is the programming language of the mathematical symbolic computation program Mathematica and the Wolfram Programming Cloud, it emphasizes symbolic computation, functional programming, rule-based programming and can employ arbitrary structures and data. It includes built-in functions for generating and running Turing machines, creating graphics and audio, analyzing 3D models, matrix manipulations, solving differential equations, it is extensively documented. Wolfram Language's core principles that differentiate it from other programming languages includes a built-in knowledgebase, automation in the form of meta-algorithms and superfunctions, a coherently elegant design and structure, built-in natural language understanding, representation of everything as a symbolic expression.

The Wolfram Language was released for the Raspberry Pi in 2013 with the goal of making it free for all Raspberry Pi users. It was included in the recommended software bundle that the Raspberry Pi Foundation provides for beginners, which caused some controversy due to the Wolfram language's proprietary nature. Plans to port the Wolfram language to the Intel Edison were announced after the board's introduction at CES 2014. In 2019, a link was added to make Wolfram libraries compatible with the Unity game engine, giving game developers access to the language's high level functions; the language was named in June 2013 although, as the backend of the computing system Mathematica, it has been in use in various forms for over 30 years since Mathematica's initial release. Before 2013, it was internally referred to by several names, such as "M" and "Wolfram Language." Other possible names Wolfram Research considered include "Lingua" and "Express."

Saint Joseph Hospital (Denver, Colorado)

Saint Joseph Hospital is a hospital in the City Park West neighborhood of Denver. Saint Joseph Hospital is part of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Healthcare system, it was started when a handful of sisters, with $9 in their pockets, set forth from Leavenworth, Kansas to Denver, Colorado in order to care for the poor and ill. They started with a small cottage, in September of 1873, through donations and begging, opened the first hospital at 1421 Arapahoe Avenue. Soon the sisters found themselves running low on space, some time in 1874, they moved to a larger structure near the red light district of Denver, at 26th and Holladay. Dr. Augustus L. Justice and Dr. Frederick J. Bancroft became the first physicians on the staff of what was called the Saint Vincent Hospital, named after the French saint, Father Vincent de Paul; the name was changed to Saint Joseph Hospital in 1876 - in honour of bishop Joseph Machebeuf - when the Sisters moved yet again, this time further east of downtown, at 18th Avenue and Humboldt Street on land donated to them by territorial Governor William Gilpin.

This site was directly adjacent to the hospital's present location. Construction of the administration building began in 1899. Led by flour baron John K. Mullen, the people of Denver raised $10,000 for this building with a "gigantic city-wide bazaar," and a "monster" euchre party, planned by Margaret Brown. In 1961, the ground was broken for the new hospital's twin towers structure. In 2014, Saint Joseph Hospital completed its current facility located at 1375 E. 19th Avenue and Downing Street in Denver. Exempla Healthcare — St. Joseph was part of the Exempla Healthcare group from c. 1997 through 2012, when the group renamed to SCL Health Towers of Healing, Dave Fishell "The Origin of Saint Joseph Hospital, Colorado".

Deborah Martin

Deborah Martin is a contemporary American painter. Her artistic work examines the complexities of individual experience in its relation to home and memory. Much of her practice emerges in collaborative conversation with writers and poets, taking form through exhibitions and publications, her stark landscape paintings convey the essence inherent within marginalized communities that exist on the fringes of American society. In 2016, Martin turned her focus to portraiture developing a long term project "Portraits of Autism" exploring the relationship and impact autistic children have within their immediate family and community on a continuum. In her continued exploration of American landscapes, Martin has turned her attention to two landmark "saline" sites in the United States known for their distinctive inhabitants, nontraditional social ecology, unique architecture: the Salton Sea and the Outer Cape area of Cape Cod. "Home on the Strange: In Search of the Salton Sea" is based on Polaroids taken over a period of several years, depicting various aspects of the reality of life on the Salton Sea.

In this series, Martin examines the eerie atmosphere centered on the Salton Sea, a bizarre body of water accidentally created by an engineering fiasco in the early twentieth century when the Colorado River was diverted spilling the river's water over a lowland directly on the site of the San Andreas Fault. The "Narrow Lands" is a transdisciplinary project documenting the architectural geography of history and time along the Outer Cape. Martin’s paintings that feature structures on the Outer Cape have justly warranted comparisons to Edward Hopper’s. Like Hopper's paintings, Martin's interpretations provide neither a celebratory stance. Unlike Hopper, Martin’s application of paint is undetectable. Martin's series "Back of Beyond" features scenes of the unincorporated town of Wonder Valley, located in Southern California’s Mojave Desert; the imprint of America is more than apparent in this group of landscapes that feature large, gas guzzling vehicles from the 1970s and'80s. Bleached bare from years of unprotected exposure underneath the sun’s aggressive blaze, Martin’s vintage sedans and convertibles don’t only evoke an air of abandonment, but they chronicle that, forgotten in exchange for what our commercially driven society considers worthy.

Martin’s recent series, The Slabs: The Last Free Place in America, gives voice to the nomadic cultures that drift in and out of Slab City. While the inhabitants of Slab City are noticeably absent from Martin’s work, her paintings radiate with an underling pulse emblematic of the community’s soul; such is achieved through the artist’s ongoing investigation of contrasting themes that touch upon isolation as well as community. In her latest series Martin turns to ethereal abstraction to express the emotional experience of autistic children and the people closest to them; the intent of this new body of work is to create a platform for social awareness while exploring the process a family goes through as their autistic child becomes an adult. The project focuses in part on relationship and methods of communication while opening up a discussion about available support systems and funding for both children and adults diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. Portraits of Autism provides multiple opportunities for a better understanding of autism as it presents each subject with not only a skilled technical ability, but a compassionate viewpoint to show each child as a complete person not only defined by their disability.
