THE NEWS

  • New allergen stickers, which will be placed on the dining hall food labels, aim to help Yalies with allergies. Though the stickers were supposed to be phased in two weeks ago, Yale Dining ran into delays with their labeling printer and hopes to introduce the stickers in the spring semester, officials said.
  • Rakesh Mohan, India’s executive director-designate at the International Monetary Fund, discussed the nonlinear progression of his career last Friday in front of an audience of roughly 10 students. During his talk, Mohan encouraged audience members to pursue their own interests without worrying about their future career prospects, adding that students should take advantage of the diversity of career paths they can take after graduation.
  • In its daily two-minute “Making a Difference” segment, NBC’s “Nightly News” detailed the efforts of Inner City Lacrosse (ICL), a nonprofit dedicated to bringing lacrosse to underprivileged youths in New Haven and Hartford, Conn. The program, which was founded by New Haven native Michael Gary, brings together lacrosse players from Yale University and Trinity College to teach middle school students the sport.
