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.
In celebration of the Lunar New Year, the Hopkins Center is hosting globally renowned Chinese musician Wu Man tomorrow in a one-time performance titled “Wu Man and Friends: A Night in the Garden of the Tang Dynasty.”Wu Man is best known for her revolutionary work with the pipa, a traditional Chinese instrument similar to the lute. Through the pipa, she is able to masterfully blend time periods and cultures, from ancient to modern and East to West.
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.
A group of more than 30 Dartmouth faculty members wrote a column in the Valley News earlier this week criticizing a Jan. 4 article in The New York Times about the circumstances around the suicide of former psychological and brain sciences chair David Bucci last fall.
A new study authored by trauma surgeons at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center suggests that wearing snow sports helmets may not protect against serious head injuries.
As the New Hampshire primary approaches, students volunteer with their favorite candidates, register to vote and attend campaign events. With all the buzz about the first-in-the-nation primary, three political experts — Ned Helms, Tom Rath ’67 and Andrew Smith — discussed the political phenomenon during a panel titled “Polls, Pundits and Predictions: Sizing Up the NH Presidential Primary Race” hosted by the Rockefeller Center on Wednesday.
Let’s be honest: long-distance relationships aren’t anyone’s first choice. They can be sad and frustrating and lonely; the list goes on. Yet, by one estimate, up to 75 percent of college students find themselves in a long-distance relationship at some point during their four years at school.
This editorial board has previously criticized the New Hampshire state government’s efforts to restrict student voting — and we remain concerned about how laws passed in 2017 and 2018 by Republicans in the state legislature can hinder students’ ability to vote.
Culture matters. The sentence’s brevity belies its gravity. After a few frenzied days of threats and debates about targeting Iran’s cultural heritage sites, we’ve seen the triumph of legal frameworks and precedents that prevent the deliberate destruction of culture. These laws, treaties and conventions are all important, and to ignore them flagrantly is wrong and weakens our country’s moral standing.
Two weekends ago, I eagerly gathered my snowboard, snow pants and puffy parka and boarded the shuttle bus to the Dartmouth Skiway to participate in my first-ever snowboarding class. Upon reaching the Skiway, I noticed the barren mountains, void of the fluffy white blanket of snow that would normally be present this time of year. What’s more, as soon as we began moving around outside, we began to sweat with almost no level of physical exertion. It was the middle of January in New Hampshire — and yet, we were sweating.
While the pursuit of happiness is often thought to be an ambiguous, subjective entity, economics professor David Blanchflower believes that happiness is quantifiable. In a study recently published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Blanchflower details the existence of a happiness curve that forms a U-shape, with peaks early and late in life, with a major dip around middle age. Most significantly, Blanchflower’s research proves that this trend is consistent everywhere in populations all around the world. Blanchflower recorded the happiness of people in 132 countries — including 95 developing and 37 developed nations — and saw that this pattern held true despite differences in socioeconomic levels and life expectancy. His research concluded that unhappiness peaks at 47.2 years in developed countries and 48.2 in developing countries. Blanchflower has been a pioneering scholar in the field of happiness literature and The Dartmouth sat down with him to talk about the inspiration behind his research, as well as its implications.
Since its introduction on campus in April, the food-ordering application Snackpass has continued to gain popularity in Hanover through its promotions as well as unorthodox advertising tactics that have included offering free gear, sponsoring student ambassadors, and throwing events such as a rave and “darty.”
Since the Jan. 15 announcement that a Dartmouth community member has contracted an active case of tuberculosis, the College has begun testing individuals who have the highest risk of having contracted the disease.
Today, the concept of a universal basic income is synonymous with Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s “Freedom Dividend.” The self-proclaimed “MATH” candidate likes to use his campaign’s cardinal policy proposal — sending every American adult $1,000 per month — as a panacea for the country’s myriad problems. These include climate change, poverty, racial divisions and the gender pay gap — all ambitious goals to announce in just the second Democratic presidential primary debate.
After another year of incredible music output, it is almost time for the Grammys to choose which albums were the most commercially viable of 2019 — or, as the Academy phrases it, the best.
There is no shortage of conflict in our world today: from online discussions about a possible “World War III,” to the restructuring of the British royal family, to the debate over which candidates will represent the Democratic and Republican parties in the 2020 presidential election, the evidence is everywhere. But if conflict is the norm rather than the anomaly, how do we make sense of the swirl of players, agendas and outcomes all around us? How do we inform ourselves about conflict in a world increasingly permeated by misinformation, and how do we formulate an opinion and craft an appropriate response?
It’s no secret that current college students have a reputation for being “snowflakes.” The existence of things like safe spaces and emotional support animals can seem to many like classic examples of Gen-Z coddling.
