THE NEWS

  • In a talk on Monday afternoon, an American businessman tried to set the record straight about last year’s British hacking scandal. Stuart Karle, Reuters’ news chief operation officer, discussed the legal issues surrounding the well-known hacking scandal in the United Kingdom to a crowd of roughly 20 at the Yale Law School on Monday.
  • Roughly a year and a half after its founding, Roammeo is roaming into new cities. After winning the 2011 Yale College Council App Challenge and the 2012 Yale Venture Challenge, the app, which originally allowed users in New Haven to find local events using their smartphones, went on to become a finalist in this summer’s MassChallenge. With the help of MassChallenge’s office space and startup mentorship, the students expanded the app to service the Boston area and tweaked its current interface to become more customizable.
  • Last month, Rachel Mak SOM ’14 assembled a display of Styrofoam containers on the campus of the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies as part of a broader effort to encourage sustainability among the Environment School, School of Management and Divinity School. The three professional schools, which have been cooperating on sustainability initiatives since 2009, have used their physical proximity to organize projects aimed at increasing environmentally friendly practices.
