Whether you're traveling to Plymouth, New Hampshire, Plymouth, Minnesota, or any other of the 40 places across the country that share the name of the place where the first Thanksgiving was held, the lowest gas prices in nearly four years are likely to guarantee Connecticut residents will have plenty of company on the highway as they drive over the river and through the woods for the holiday, according to AAA. In advance of and after the holiday, 41.3 million Americans plan to drive more than 50 miles, a 4.3 percent increase in the number of motorists from last Thanksgiving. Air travel for the holiday is also expected to be at its highest level since 2007, with 3.55 million Americans flying.

The Moment I Learned Just How Far Uber Will Go to Silence Journalists and Attack Women

By Metro Taxi on November 20, 2014 1:12 PM Comments: 0 | Trackbacks: 0
A big debate among the Pando staff for the past two years has been over just how morally bankrupt Uber is. Earlier this evening, a bombshell story by Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith proves the reality is way worse than anyone on our team could have expected. And that's saying something. Back in 2012, Paul Carr first raised serious concerns about the company's view that both riders and drivers are disposable commodities in an all-out Randian battle to maximize profits. He uninstalled the app when he wrote that piece, and he started a drumbeat of press around these concerns.

Yale SOM Program for New College Grads Considers Expansion

By Metro Taxi on October 31, 2014 2:05 PM Comments: 0 | Trackbacks: 0
Discussions are currently underway to expand the Silver Scholars Program -- which enrolls students fresh out of college in the Yale School of Management -- administrators at the SOM say. The program is an MBA program enrolling students who just graduated from college, which requires two years of business school classes separated by a year of work experience. The program is different from regular MBA admission in that normally applicants work for a few years before enrolling in the SOM MBA program, according to the SOM website. From its founding in 2004 up until last year, the program enrolled five to six students annually. That number climbed to seven for the class of 2016 and to 15 for the class of 2017. The SOM Associate Dean Anjani Jain said administrators are considering the pursuit of a greater expansion starting next year.

The chicken salad starts here. From within the savory confines of Yale's new Culinary Support Center (CSC), Ron DeSantis and his cooks are whipping up an array of cold food classics for the entire university. They're fussing over hummus, attending to house-made dressings, and assembling a superior blend of salad bar gems. All this represents a new, more efficient approach to cold food preparation at Yale, bringing such tasks out of the pantry cellar and into the light. Meanwhile, Yale's bakery and catering crews have settled into their new home at CSC, as well.

HAMDEN >> Shari Caldwell reinforces African culture through the arts of dance and drumming. Caldwell, 54, said she started the The Caldwell Dance Center four years ago with the desire to instill African culture and social continuity in her students. "I don't separate dance and culture, it's the same. Africa is where we should establish our integrity and dignity, because it's the place that we can feel our own life identity, as opposed to something that was imposed on us (by others)," said Caldwell.
