The History of Programming Languages [Infographic]

Rackspace recently published a nice infographic on the evolution of programming languages. It starts with FORTRAN and COBOL and runs through Ruby on Rails (which, yes, is a framework and not a language).

Unfortunately, it omits such influential languages as LispALGOL 60and Smalltalk. But including every important language ever would make for a pretty long infographic.

Wanda never imagined she’s be homeless at 59. Her husband has serious health issues, so she quit her job to relocate with her husband to St Louis. Wanda was not able to find a new job so a friend offered her a place to stay in Los Angeles.

After living with her friend for 30 days Wanda came to Ascencia, a homeless shelter in Glendale, California. I work at Ascencia as a outreach case manager. I normally don’t share stories from work, but Huffington Post asked me to interview a few homeless people about the presidential election[http://huff.to/SQHtEc], and Wanda was so awesome I kept the camera rolling and could not help but ask about her story.

The 10 Most Anticipated Fall Movies

Though the summer movie season winds up this weekend and the holiday movie season doesn’t really ramp up until Thanksgiving, there are still going to be some pretty great flicks coming out this fall, from a time-travel thriller to a high-profile presidential bio-pic to the return of everyone’s favorite British spy. Check out 10 of the fall’s most anticipated movies below:

The Master (9/21) — There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest movie is a thinly veiled tale about the origins of Scientology.  The filmmakers are remaining mum. What we do know is that “The Master” is about a washed up ex-sailor (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls into the orbit of Lancaster Dodd (Phillip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic huckster who founded a Scientology-like religious organization.  It’s been five years since Paul Thomas Anderson’s last movie, the flinty masterpiece “There Will Be Blood,” so expectations for this movie are very high.
