- On the morning of Valentine’s Day in 1989, Salman Rushdie woke to the news that an entire region of the world wanted him dead. Rushdie, a celebrated and controversial British Indian author, was forced to live in hiding under police protection for nearly a decade after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran from 1979 to 1989, issued a religious decree, or fatwa, calling for his death. In a Tuesday afternoon talk at the Yale University Art Gallery, Rushdie addressed an audience of more than 300 to speak about his works, political interests and feelings of isolation following the publication of his controversial novel.
- Despite a two-week stretch of sub-50 temperatures and clear skies, last month’s “Snowpocalypse” continues to affect New Haven and Connecticut residents across the state. According to a Connecticut Labor Department report released Thursday, last month’s massive snowstorm significantly impeded businesses in Connecticut and resulted in the loss of 5,700 jobs. The storm, which buried the Elm City, Connecticut municipalities and much of New England in three feet of snow, shut down countless office buildings, businesses and restaurants between February 8 and 9. As part of the Labor Department’s research, employers across the state were asked to report job figures, and the survey results indicated a drop-off in employment.
