Title: Every Function Can be Computable

Abstract: I will relay an interesting result of Joel David Hamkins: that
there is an algorithm which can compute any function f of natural
numbers, if it is carried out in the right model of arithmetic
(corresponding to f). In particular, I will construct the necessary
models using Rosser sentences and describe the algorithm.
