Yale ranks #124 for best global universities in computer science, faculty comment on lack of institutional support

Zoe Berg, Photo Editor

Just over four years since Yale University President Peter Salovey first said that the University would make up ground in the sciences, 2021 U.S. News rankings have placed the computer science department at Yale as 124th in the world.

The University is currently ranked #11 in overall best global universities according to U.S. News, but its standing in computer science is far lower. The ranking is based on the department’s research performance. 

Within the past 10 years, the number of CS majors at Yale has grown ten-fold, and the program is now the third most popular undergraduate major. But for more than 20 years, the number of faculty in the department did not increase significantly, even as the field has gained popularity.

Front-line workers have seen the worst of covid-19. A new website allows donors to support them.

“If we are going to get through this pandemic, and we haven’t done it yet and are maybe about to enter the worst period, we need these front-line workers,” said Walter Smith, D.C. Appleseed’s executive director. “We need them on the job because they are serving all of us.”

Through the website, www.frontlineworkersdc.org, supplies such as N95 masks, protective glasses and cash can be funneled to workers through nonprofits such as Bread for the City, Mary’s Center, Martha’s Table, the Leadership Council for Healthy Communities and DC Dream Center.

“We didn’t want D.C. Appleseed to be in the business of taking the money and figuring out what to do with it,” Smith said. “So we contracted with nonprofits on the ground who are already supporting people like these workers.”

The project stems from a report by D.C. Appleseed, commissioned by the Greater Washington Community Foundation and published earlier this year

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testifies virtually Tuesday about social media’s responsibilities in fighting hatred while promoting free speech.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey agreed Tuesday to support changes to a key federal internet law even as they pushed back at allegations that their companies are biased against conservative views.

In a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, the pair of executives answered a range of questions that strayed from the original topic: how the companies handled the 2020 US election. The four-and-a-half-hour hearing touched on tech addiction, encryption and antitrust, in addition to content moderation.

The testimony marked the second congressional appearance for both men in less than a month. Though the exchanges were more cordial than last month’s, it was clear from the outset that lawmakers are intent on reining in the two popular social networks. One frequently raised possibility: revising Section 230, a
