By Joe Vitale Successful ideas of the Information Age always begin with noticing a common dilemma. The hard part, though, is not coming across the dilemma, but finding its solution. For three Yale s...

By GIRISH SWAMINATH ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR To those of you who don’t know me well enough, I must confess that one of my strangest interests during my free time (whatever little I seem to have of it) include watching “food porn,” whether I am hungry or not. Don’t worry, guys I know your first reaction to that may be, “Wow! What an incredibly scandalous and inappropriate statement!” But don’t worry! “Food ...

By DANIELLE GARRAND ASSISTANT CULTURE EDITOR Last Wednesday night, while most college kids were cramming or snoozing, I was at The Barclay Center in Brooklyn watching Mumford and Sons perform their British hearts out. Every few years, there is that band that seems to captivate the nation’s attention with a completely new sound and style (Backstreet Boys anyone?). Right now, Mumford is that band and their star is no...

By DEVON SHERIDAN ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Monday morning saw me wake up feeling the same as many of my college-aged peers feel on Monday mornings following a three-day weekend: hazy, dazed and in need of a tall glass of ice water. I stretched. I yawned. I quickly assessed my extremities and valuables to make sure they were all there. Finding everything in adequate order, ready to take on a new day, I sat down on m...

From the Desk of Sarah Ramírez, Editor in Chief

November 7, 2012

I’m a planner. Blame it on my Virgo tendencies or just my personality, but I’m not one for spontaneity. So it shouldn’t surprise my friends that I’ve been brainstorming what to write here, in my senior From the Desk, since I wrote my first one, in January of my sophomore year. The planning for that piece didn’t go so well — I blame procrastination. And now, I’m entering a period in my life where I just can...
