On Monday evening, Dinesh D’Souza ’83 spoke at an event sponsored by the Dartmouth Republicans and the Young America Foundation. Over 200 people attended the event, and dozens of students and community members protested the speech through song, chants and signs. The event, part of Young America Foundation’s 10-campus “Dinesh D’Souza tour: Fake History Debunked,” took place in Filene Auditorium.
The need for additional surgery to replace the batteries for implantable biomedical devices may soon be eliminated. Researchers at the Thayer School of Engineering and clinicians at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio have been attempting to extend the lifetime of the batteries used in such devices, and now they may have found a way for pacemakers and similar devices to be powered by a patient’s heartbeat.
Debuted at Dartmouth in 1998, the play “the Vagina Monologues” inspired and started the V-February campaign, stemming from the global V-Day movement that aims to promote gender equity and end gender-based violence. However, over its 21 years, the campaign has evolved to feature more events and reflect different initiatives. This year, V-Feb focuses on “visibility” as its theme to increase the campaign’s inclusiveness, according to co-chair of the V-Feb committee Sara Cho ’20.
For anthropology professor Jeremy DeSilva, the evolutionary lineage of human beings hold a special allure. DeSilva specializes in human evolution and the anatomy of proto-human species, particularly the origin and evolution of bipedalism. DeSilva recently coauthored a special issue of the journal “PaleoAnthropology,” focusing on Australopithecus sediba, a two million-year-old potential human ancestor found in 2008 in South Africa.
Two top health care organizations have announced a merger that aims to more effectively meet the health service needs of the state’s residents.
As we find ourselves hurtling toward the already contentious 91st Academy Awards ceremony, I think it might be time to take a break from our regularly scheduled programming and tackle a seemingly unrelated question: Why do we like cult films?
I grew up in the south, and some of my most vivid childhood memories took place on the sandy shores of the Atlantic or in the pristine saltwater marshes on the Carolina coast. I was always captivated by the raw beauty in these environments: sunlight bending through Spanish moss, the great arc of a blue heron in flight, hundreds of fiddler crabs scuttling across the mud flats and the gentle lapping of waves at low tide. The sheer abundance of life clustered within the marshes always astounded me. They were their own little sanctuary, sheltered from concrete high-rises and boisterous tourists, having just the right conditions to foster an entire ecosystem.
“Tangerine” by Christine Mangan transported me beyond my world. I felt like I knew how the ghostliness, both the good and bad tangles of history, feels in Tangier. The book brought the feeling of standing on top of Phoenician tombs, gleaming white against the azure of the intersection of the Mediterranean and Atlantic Oceans alive; I felt like I could feel the layered history beneath my feet and the physical manifestations of syncretic culture present before my eyes.
Despite the warm weather, this year’s mammoth snow sculpture stands tall, bolstering the official Dartmouth tradition that has faded in recent years.
As an old school with a very long history, it is very difficult for school records at Dartmouth to be challenged or even broken. However, Donovan Spearman ’21 is on the verge of doing just that. He is currently ranked second in Dartmouth’s history for the 60 meter dash and has plans to improve his position.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a pretty big homer when it comes to sports. I strongly believe that Syracuse University basketball was hit way too hard by the NCAA Investigation in 2015 and that has hurt the program’s recruiting to this day (while the University of North Carolina faced no penalties for offering fake classes). I also believe the relocations of the Rams and Chargers to Los Angeles within a year of each other was a plot by Rams owner Stan Kroenke to keep the most popular team in the area, the Raiders, out of town when it came time for that team to move so the Rams could build a brand in the city while having “competition” from a team with an even smaller California fan base.
When the Dartmouth women’s basketball team packed for its trip to New York this weekend, they packed grit. The Big Green came out victorious in two hard-fought battles against Cornell University and Columbia University, bringing the team to an even 3-3 in Ivy play and a winning 10-9 record overall for the season thus far.
The Dartmouth men’s basketball team remained in contention in the wide-open Ivy League, splitting a two-game homestand this weekend with Cornell University and Columbia University.
Only 25 Division I teams in the nation get to be nationally ranked at any given time, and being ranked is a recognition of dominance and skill as a team. After making their first Ivy Tournament in several years last year, it comes as no surprise that the Dartmouth women’s lacrosse team has been given the honor of a preseason national ranking.
Last Friday, Columbus Blue Jackets winger and leading scorer Artemi Panarin announced a change in agents from Dan Milstein to Paul Theofanous. In a vacuum, this would be a horrifically boring announcement, but in context, there is more to the story. Along with the new agent, Panarin, an impending unrestricted free agent, made fully public what had been an open secret since last offseason — that he intends to test the free agency market, where he will surely collect a handsome raise on the $6 million he took home this season.
Croatia, Switzerland, Austria. For many Dartmouth students, that’s a travel itinerary for a summer break. For alpine skier Tanguy Nef ’20, it’s the countries he’s had World Cup races in since the beginning of January — while taking classes and skiing three carnivals for the Big Green.
Alpine skier Tricia Mangan ’19 didn’t participate in Dartmouth’s Winter Carnival this weekend, but not without good reason — she just happened to be racing at Snow King Mountain Resort in Wyoming.
This weekend, the men’s hockey team registered more shots on goal than both of its opponents, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and No. 20 Union College. This statistic has become the new norm for the team: the Big Green has outshot opponents in 18 of its last 20 games.
Only 30 years younger than the College, student journalism at Dartmouth has been a stalwart – chronicling institutional change and the College’s interactions with the world.
