Ghosts of libraries past. Yesterday, Bass Library hosted a drop-in session for students to get help on their research papers. The event photo they selected for their advertising showed a photo of student pretending to study … but actually reading Playboy. The picture was originally taken in Silliman in 1962 and is now part of the Yale Manuscripts & Archives.

The diet after the storm. Following a succession of chocolate-themed events, graduate students finally get a break with an event today centered on relaxation. At “Cultivating Gratitude,” attendees will design a planter with a seed or bulb to grow throughout the spring. The event is accompanied with a light soup and salad dinner, a drastic break from last night’s graduate student life event which advertised the “world’s largest jar of Nutella.”

How not to raise a psychopath. Students hoping to raise socially well-adjusted children got some helpful tips last night at an event from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. An event titled “Emotionally Intelligent Parenting” gave families tools for teaching their kids emotional intelligence at home. Although this trait does not constitute a portion of the SAT, emotional intelligence has been shown to be connected to well-being and success at home, work and school.

Lox et veritas. A recent IvyGate post called out Yalies on their complaints about the Yale Dining switch from normal-sized bagels to mini-
bagels. “In classic form, Yale students have found a petty nonissue to latch onto and raise hell over,” the post said. The post cited a few angry Facebook statuses, one complaining that the new bagels could be buttered only with a microscope.

Walk with me … to TD. For students who enjoy long walk and talks with their professors, Timothy Dwight College hosted a “Take Your Professor to Dinner” meal Wednesday evening. Participating professors enjoyed a menu of Caribbean chicken and Haitian rice and beans, as well as chance to take the scenic route down to Temple Street.

A gallery opening of sorts. The Yale Women’s Center has opened voting for its competition on feminist art. Entries include photos, art, poems and videos around the theme of “Feminism Today.”

Tides of history. A panel last night at Sterling Memorial Library explored “Black Panthers and the FBI.” On the panel was a former secretary for the Black Panther Party.
