THE NEWS

  • Yale broke a record this year with seven Rhodes scholars, the largest number ever from the University. Read more about these bright Yalies in tomorrow’s News.
  • Deans representing the University’s cultural centers decided in a meeting last month to extend the curfew for all cultural house events from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. The extended event hours are part of a larger effort to provide a “safe, fun and non-alcoholic” social alternative that will last longer into the night, said Luming Chen ’14, head coordinator of the Asian American Cultural Center.
  • Despite adding jobs in October, Connecticut’s unemployment rate rose marginally to 9.0 percent as residents re-entered the labor market. While the rate rose, Connecticut added 1,200 jobs in October, indicating more people are entering the job market — a change politicians and experts said is a sign for cautious optimism.
