HOWARD H.AIKEN AND THE COMPUTER
Howard Aiken’s contributions to the development of the computer -notably the Harvard MarkI (IBM ASSC) machine, and its
successor the MarkII - are often excluded from the mainstream history of computers on two technicalities. The first is that MarkI and MarkII

has come to be known as the von Neumann

Reading books is a very important role in the life of
people. It educates a person, enriches his intellect. Books bring pleasure and

Bread is more than just a food. Just
think of how the word is used: A person’s “bread and butter” is his or her main
source of sustenance, while bread or dough can be cash, plain and simple. When
people “break bread” they share more than just a meal: They come together in
body as well as spirit.
It’s not surprising that bread is
imbued with special meaning. Since the first raised breads were baked in Egypt
around 4,000 B.C., bread has been a vital food source for peoples around
