Monday’s Buzz: 1.10.11

THE NEWS

  • Since President Barack Obama signed the repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” on Dec. 22, University administrators have been working quickly to reintroduce ROTC, which was banned from campus in 1969, at the height of the Vietnam War. Levin spoke with U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates last week to express interest in the military setting up a new ROTC unit at Yale. Yale College Dean Mary Miller said Levin has since had a “positive” follow-up conversation with a senior military official.
  • The officer in charge of the Elevate raid, New Haven Police Department Assistant Chief of Operations Ariel Melendez, announced his resignation on Thursday. The announcement was made amidst ongoing internal investigations into multiple incidents in which Melendez was involved.
  • Since learning last month that her cancer had returned, Mandi Schwartz ’11 and her family have elected to stop medical treatment of her aggressive leukemia. The women’s hockey player’s 25-month battle with cancer took a drastic turn in mid-December. Mandi learned of her relapse on Dec. 17 — almost three weeks after a potentially life-saving stem cell transplant, and just two weeks shy of the point at which the average transplant patient is well enough to return home — and resumed treatment for less than a month before announcing Jan. 6 that she would not continue the therapy.
