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.
Dartmouth has been a placed filled with incredible opportunities and experiences that have allowed me to challenge myself and engage with my passions in a meaningful way. In my freshman year, a serendipitous series of events ranging from interesting courses to new ties with mentors and peers accelerated me into the world of global health. Lisa Adams, the dean of global health at Geisel School of Medicine and human being extraordinaire, appreciated my enthusiasm and offered me mentorship. Thanks to her and so many others, I’ve received tremendous support using both the sciences and humanities to understand the structural violence and epidemiology that have resulted in global health inequities, most profoundly for women and children of color.
At Dartmouth, where 35 percent of given degrees are for the social sciences, another 9 percent are for engineering, and 8 percent are for biological or life sciences, it can be easy to look at potential degree paths through a narrow lens. While Dartmouth’s liberal arts philosophy encourages students to experience a wide range of academic fields, this kind of study is often accomplished through students’ efforts to complete distributive requirements. For example, an engineering major may take COLT 1: “Read the World” his freshman fall for a literature credit or a government major may take EARS 2: “Evolution of Earth & Life” her sophomore summer for a science credit. But for some students, studying across departments has influenced their chosen degrees — leading them to combine seemingly conflicting areas of study, fusing art with technology and blending science with humanities.
The recent rise in tensions between the United States and Iran has incited a substantial amount of concern about increased conflict between the two countries. As a result, many of us have been closely following the news in hopes of better understanding the situation and its potential consequences.
In Round 2 of a fight that started four years ago, the Justice Department and the FBI are pressuring tech giant Apple to create “backdoor” access to its iPhone encryption software. The request comes as the FBI investigation into a shooting at a Pensacola, FL, naval base looks for information on the shooter’s iPhone.
Directly across from the Hinman Mail Center in the Hopkins Center is The Booth, a small but carefully curated display of student art. With its eye-catching neon pink sign, welded by student curator Jamie Park ’20, The Booth is hard to miss.
The “Reconstitution” exhibit, which opened in the Hood Museum on Jan. 2 and will stay up until May 31, aims to make viewers consider how the dominant art historical narratives exclude many experiences and artists.
A Dartmouth graduate’s average salary can range from $38,900 to $100,500, while student debt at the College ranges from $7,500 to $17,007 depending on a choice of major, according to government data published in the Wall Street Journal.
The College will no longer offer two-day camping or hiking trips for physical education credit. According to College spokesperson Diana Lawrence, these trips will no longer be offered until the Outdoor Programs Office establishes administrative oversight of PE credit offerings.
After nearly a year of preparation, the Rise Together! celebration brought together the Dartmouth community yesterday to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Dartmouth men’s hockey won two games on its home ice twice this past weekend, defeating league opponents Clarkson University and St. Lawrence University. With the wins, the Big Green moved into a four-way tie for third place in the Eastern College Athletic Conference standings.

Dartmouth’s ski team will hit the slopes this weekend for its first races of the season. Last season, the Big Green finished in fourth place at the NCAA Championships and won its third-straight Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association title.
Thanks to surprise wins for Best Director and Best Motion Picture — Drama at the Golden Globes, Sam Mendes’ bold cinematic experience “1917” has been a buzzy film, garnering a spike in attention it hopes to carry into the Oscars in February. Set during World War I and focusing on two British soldiers in the trenches of France, “1917” is shot and edited to look like one take. This is much like Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s masterful 2015 Oscar winner for Best Motion Picture of the Year, “Birdman.” Unlike “Birdman,” though, “1917,” lacks a scintillating script or multifaceted characters, but it makes up for some of that loss with the sheer grandeur of its cinematic vision.
We are disturbed by The Dartmouth’s reporting on the New York Times story about the tragic suicide of Professor David Bucci. The angle of the Times’ piece was misguided and regressive: Its narrative missed the nuances of mental health and the institutional failures of Dartmouth College, while perpetuating harmful victim-blaming.
