Tuition passes inflation

Yale College’s 4.5 percent tuition increase, announced last week, is its lowest in five years. But following a tradition stretching over the large part of three decades, the price of attending college here has risen faster than the expenses faced by schools nationwide. Annual term bills, including Yale’s, have been increasing at a pace faster […]

RIAA warnings up

Yale students emerged unscathed from the music industry’s latest round of anti-file-sharing lawsuits, but the number of copyright infringement warnings targeting Elis has skyrocketed since a year ago. While the University received no notices of impending lawsuits against its students during a wave of legal action in March, data released by Information Technology Services officials […]

Ruling reveals Y-NH violation

Top Yale-New Haven Hospital administrators, including CEO Marna Borgstrom EPH ’79, may have misled the public and an independent arbitrator about how much they knew about tactics used during their anti-union campaign, according to a recent order by the arbitrator.

All NetID passwords to change

Using your mother’s maiden name as your Yale NetID password won’t work anymore, unless her name is between 8 and 14 characters long and has at least two numbers in it.

Hospital document suggests anti-union mentality

A document leaked anonymously to New Haven’s City Hall provides the clearest and most startling picture yet as to how Yale-New Haven Hospital management might have violated a Election Principles Agreement struck with the union trying to form there for the past nine years. The document, which runs more than 30 pages and is entitled […]

Time change causes worry

Spring break will be an hour shorter this year — but your computer might not know it. Daylight saving time, which is set by Congress, will now start three weeks earlier than it has in recent years in an effort to conserve energy by maximizing the number of usable daylight hours. But computers, programmed with […]

Y-NH files for election

In an unorthodox move that shocked city and union leaders, Yale-New Haven Hospital announced Wednesday that it will file a petition for a secret ballot unionization election with the National Labor Relations Board, less than two weeks after SEIU 1199 withdrew its own election petition on the grounds that a fair vote would be impossible.

Market shift may hurt Yale

The Chinese stock market suffered its largest fall in a decade on Tuesday, leading to the worst week in four years for U.S. exchanges.
