“How can I myself live my life everyday in a way that increases justice and… that fights injustice?” - Professor Russell Rickford. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEqQXoyl5xk&feature=player_embedded If you’ve been at a student activist demonstration in the past two years, you’ve probably caught a glimpse of history professor Russell Rickford — or at least his distinctive black-rimmed glasses.

As the apparent representatives of young Granite State conservativism, staffers of The Dartmouth Review sat down again with a national news organization, this time the Daily Beast. The group — which included Review editor-in-chief Sterling Beard ’12 — chuckled over the tweets of Michelle Malkin and former Review editor-in-chief Laura Ingraham '85 as they discussed low enthusiasm for the primary among college-age N.H.

Dartbeat: One of the most controversial campaign strategies we’ve seen thus far was Rick Perry’s anti-gay ad [see below] in Iowa.

<="" img=""> Courtesy Of Adbusters Even though it's currently removed from Columbia's spring anthropology course listings, the university has announced they will offer a class on Occupy Wall Street next semester, according to the New York Post. Postdoctoral scholar at Columbia University's Committee on Global Thought Hannah Appel, will teach the anthropology course, which is entitled “Occupy the Field: Global Finance, Inequality, Social Movement.” An anthropologist by trade, Appel has conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Equatorial Guinea's transational oil and gas industry. The course will combine seminars at Columbia's Morningside Heights campus with fieldwork in and around OWS movements. According to the syllabus, which features a ballerina in releve attitude balancing upon the Merrill Lynch bull, Appel expects students to be involved in ongoing Occupy projects, though she says a "particular orientation toward OWS" is not requisite for participation." Along with guest lecturers, Appel plans to incorporate sociological, political theory, economics, history and primary source material "from OWS and beyond." Appel blogs for the Social Text collective about OWS, where she offers ethnographic observations and commentary on the movement. Appel told the Post her support for OWS won’t keep her from being an objective teacher. “Inevitably, my experience will color the way I teach, but I feel equipped to teach objectively,” Appel told The Post.

<="" img=""> Courtesy Of Army Times A study co-authored by Dartmouth psychiatry professor Matthew Friedman indicates fewer veterans are using anti-anxiety drugs to treat symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder. The news comes to the relief of current psychiatric guidelines, which recommend against the use of benzodiazepines to treat PTSD. "One of our concerns is that it's very, very difficult to get patients off benzodiazepines," Friedman, executive director of the National Center for PTSD, told Reuters. As more and more soldiers return from recent and ongoing military conflicts, such as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this evidence will prove to be increasingly helpful, researchers say.

Hanover might not have the best Venetian glass or Italian silk shops in the country (or any at all), but the quaint college town does have “the best gelato in America” at the recently opened Morano Gelato, according to Forbes blogger Larry Olmsted. The self-declared “gelato freak” discovered the Main Street gelateria by chance, he wrote on his blog, saying he has been disappointed by American offerings of the Italian dessert in his travels around the country.
