Government professor John Carey is associate dean of faculty, and his research has spanned topics like American democracy, campus diversity and conspiracy theories. This week, The Dartmouth sat down with Carey to learn more about his work on conspiracy theories, which includes how they affect perceptions of the Zika virus in Brazil, politics in Venezuela and even the 2014 Deflategate scandal right here in the United States.
I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist. I push myself to my limits to get good grades, be in every organization and keep up those #squadgoals. In the era of social media and Instagram, we are able to project a fake image of who we want to be rather than who we actually are. Striving for perfectionism goes beyond social media, though, and students put up a front that everything is “so wonderful” when, in reality, many of us are just trying to get through the week.
In the age of social media, the way young people consume media is changing quickly. In a study done by the Pew Research Center, only 16 percent of American 18-to 29-year-olds said they often get their news from TV. Not surprisingly, 36 percent said they often get their news from social media and 27 percent said they often get their news from news websites.

Gage Young, the 23-year-old West Lebanon man charged with the nonfatal shooting of a visiting Providence College student in the fall of 2018, has been granted release on bail by a Grafton Superior Court judge.
Mac Miller’s posthumous album “Circles,” released on Jan. 17, is a fitting end to his respected rap career and eclectic body of music. Miller began his career at the age of 15 in Pittsburgh’s hip-hop scene, and over time became an almost entirely different artist. He evolved from his beginnings as a fratty pop-rap artist to boldly experimenting with his sound, all the while growing immensely as a rapper, producer and singer.
As I scrolled through TikTok over winter break, I came across multiple videos of people jokingly expressing how much they want to die or how bad their mental health is. There are even song lyrics repeatedly used to create these videos, which seem to rack up hundreds of thousands of views. After seeing this for the first time, I didn’t know how to react.
It is so easy to complain. When something is annoying, all we need to do is voice our complaints to the world, and instantly our feelings are validated and consoled — so the line goes. If we get really lucky, someone might even share our grievances. Then we get to relish in the back and forth of complaining with someone else as we unite in self-pity and relieve the burdens of our inner demons. And sure, complaining is cathartic. But while complaining provides short-term satisfaction, constant complaining and catastrophizing fosters a culture of unhappiness as we drag each other deeper into the hole of negativity.
MANCHESTER — For a state engulfed with events dedicated toward the upcoming primary, New Hampshire hosting a professional bull riding tournament at the Southern New Hampshire University Arena last weekend was a dramatic change of pace. Despite a snow storm blanketing the local roads, dozens of bulls and riders — along with thousands of spectators — took part in the two-day Manchester Invitational, the first Professional Bull Riders, Inc. series in the city’s history.
Maybe it’s just that the Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl, but I find myself more excited for this year’s rendition of the greatest event in sports than I’ve been in a long time. It’s fitting that the Kansas City Chiefs, who represented the AFC in Super Bowl I, will play for their second Lombardi Trophy in the league’s storied 100th season. They find themselves facing the five-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers, who can tie the Patriots and Steelers for both the most rings in NFL history and the most annoying fan base with a victory.
From the onset of Saturday’s game, 3-point shooting proved to be the differentiator between Dartmouth (7-10, 0-2 Ivy) and Harvard University (13-4, 2-0 Ivy) men’s basketball, with the Big Green falling just short, 70-66.
No. 20 Dartmouth men’s hockey held leads for five different stretches this weekend on a New York road trip, but ultimately fell to No. 1 Cornell University 3-2 and tied Colgate University 3-3. The Big Green now sit in fourth in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, settling for just one point in the standings despite playing from behind in only one period across the two games.
As I write this column two weeks into the winter quarter, I find myself to be infinitely smarter than I was when I arrived on a frigid Sunday two weeks earlier. Why, you ask? Because, after taking two weeks of social psychology, I have solved the most fundamental debate facing NFL fans.
Following two home wins last weekend, the men’s hockey team ranked No. 20 in the nation in this week’s NCAA poll on USCHO.com. The ranking represents the first time Dartmouth has snuck onto the charts in nearly four years, having last polled at No. 20 on Feb. 1, 2016.

Jewel of India, a family-owned Hanover mainstay, will not be able to renew its lease with the College — the owner of the property on which it resides — and will close by the end of June. Jewel of India co-owner Surjit Kaur said that she wants to renew the lease on the building, but the College is interested in developing a mixed-use structure on the property instead.
