Although they aren’t consumed by Jewish people, giraffes are Kosher. The giraffe does not have a masorah (tradition) for its consumption by any Jewish community. Though it is commonly believed that it is not known where on a giraffes neck shechita (ritual slaughter) can be performed, this is incorrect as the shechita can be performed anywhere on the neck. The reason many people will not eat it is for the lack of tradition of eating it, and Judaism relies heavily on tradition. the people who would eat it anyway won’t because the cost is too high, something like a few hundred per steak.

Sister Mary Kenneth Keller (PHD, 1965): The First PHD In Computer Science in the US

In 1965, sister Mary Kenneth Keller was the first woman to get a Ph.D in computer science. She believed that the use of computers have boundless capacity for the sharing of information.

Sister Mary worked on developing the BASIC programming language. BASIC is a way of translating the zeroes and ones of computer code into something more intuitive and straightforward. It is a general-purpose, high level programming language which helped broaden computer programming into non maths and science fields, subsequently giving many people their first experience with programming.
