Wednesday’s Buzz: 10.06.10

THE NEWS

  • Since January 2009, Yale professors and visiting luminaries haven’t had to trek to Boston or New York for TV and radio appearances. Instead they need only take a short walk down College Street to the Yale Media and Broadcast Center, an institution that has been saving Yale money and helping it expand its influence worldwide.
  • This weekend the women’s rugby team traveled to West Point to face Army. Katie Miller ’12, who resigned from West Point and transferred to Yale this year because of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy, hardly received a warm welcome. Cries of “Go back to Yale!” and threats of injury on the field greeted Miller.
  • Yale scientists are breaking ground on the effects of pressure on the crystalline structure of the Earth’s mantle. Using a simulated pressure 1.8 million times that of the atmosphere, Lowell Miyagi, a post-doctoral assistant in the department of Geology and Geophysics, was able to uncover the reason for the previously unexplained deformation of post-perovskite, a material found in abundance in the lower mantle.
