THE NEWS

  • Administrators at Yale and the National University of Singapore began reviewing applications for teaching spots in the sciences, social sciences and humanities at Yale-NUS last Tuesday. The initial review of applicants marks the beginning of a hiring process that will appoint 36 faculty by the time Yale-NUS opens to students in fall 2013, said Charles Bailyn, the school’s inaugural dean of the faculty.
  • A News poll conducted last week sheds new light on the status of the Ward 1 aldermanic race between Vinay Nayak ’14 and Sarah Eidelson ’12.
  • On December 22, 2003, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck a populated area in central California. It killed two people. Four days later, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck Bam, Iran. But this time, the death toll was 30,000.

    “Catastrophe and Consequence: The Campaign for Safe Buildings,” a symposium held at the Yale School of Architecture on Friday and Saturday, sought to investigate this disparity.
