STERN: The politics of profanity

October 20, 2014 • 0
I think that avoiding swear words for the sake of respectability, even in print, even in a newspaper, is ridiculous.

DANIELS: Just disconnect

A break from technology provides us with a breath of authenticity, pushing us to be more present and to find value in our immediate surroundings.

WASSERMAN: In service against Ebola

October 17, 2014 • 0
Instead of engaging in gratuitous fear-mongering, we should devote those energies to figuring out how we can get help where it is needed most. We, as a University, must encourage more of our qualified physicians, engineers, biostatisticians and epidemiologists to offer assistance in the fight against Ebola.

Self-Absorbed

SYDNEY: Calm, cool, competent

October 17, 2014 • 0
Competency, perhaps, is what’s lost, or what’s harder to see, when we dedicate our time and energy to developing exceptional, specialized skills and ways of thinking.

KIM: Encourage language study

October 16, 2014 • 0
We should make the option of continuing a second language more accessible. By eliminating Friday L4 language classes, we would give upper-level language courses a fighting chance.

BLACKMON: Refuse to come out

October 13, 2014 • 0
When I saw several national organizations celebrate National Coming Out Day over the weekend, I couldn’t shake the feeling that we are going about it all wrong.

STERN: Farewell, grade deflation

October 13, 2014 • 0
Especially considering how close Yale came to almost enacting a similar — or even more draconian — grading policy two years ago, we should pay close attention to our neighbors to the south.
Notorious VHP

HALL-PALERM: Republicans are people, too

October 10, 2014 • 0
Somehow what is at stake in elections got completely and utterly lost in the fray. No one wants to talk to the voters about where they actually stand on issues, because that’s too contentious and complicated a topic to boil down into a bumper-sticker size.

TRAMONTE: Pursuing the present

October 9, 2014 • 0
Neither your future nor your success is guaranteed, so depriving yourself of simple pleasures, especially in college, is certainly no way to live.

CHIANG: For a better place

Earlier this month I visited the Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School on College and Crown to observe a senior journalism class as part of an assignment for one of my courses. What I saw taught me that there’s still much work to be done for New Haven youth.

BINYAM: Porous borders, dangerous parts

October 17, 2014 • 0
Ebola is frightening precisely because it alerts us to webs of transnational interdependency and mutual vulnerability. We’re surprised by the porosity of our borders, and our reaction is a desire for security and self-containment.

PLOTT: For Buckley College

October 17, 2014 • 0
Buckley’s legacy reminds us that, as Yalies, it is our duty to pave the roads we see fit, even if we find ourselves journeying them alone. And once we start, we must not stop.

ZIA: For Hopper College

October 17, 2014 • 0
As a woman studying mathematics, working in the Navy and doing research in computer science, Hopper was often the only female in the room.

JONES: For Bouchet College

October 17, 2014 • 0
A first-generation student of color and a first-class scientist, Bouchet is a role model for the Yale community. Though he came from Yale’s past, in many ways he represents the University’s future.

PERDUE: For Yung College

October 17, 2014 • 0
Because of Yung's dedication to learning, the links he forged between China and the U.S. and the model he offers for international education and cultural exchange, it is only fitting that Yale signal its dedication to truly global learning by naming a college after him.

GITLIN: For Webster College

October 17, 2014 • 0
Choosing Webster would re-emphasize Yale’s role in American history and culture. It would also reinforce our ties to Connecticut and resonate deeply with the history of Yale.
