Wealth can create vicious cycles. The more money a person earns, the more scared they become of losing it, and, as such, they resort to extreme measures to protect their money. The scandal of the Panama Papers — the leaked documents exposing the offshore businesses of many wealthy individuals, of which some were shell companies used for the illegal purposes of fraud and tax evasion — details such extreme measures, making for an unbelievable chronicle that is the premise for “The Laundromat.”
Each year during the winter and spring terms, some members of the junior class are tapped by Dartmouth’s senior societies — groups that mostly remain secret until most members reveal themselves at graduation. Tapping dates have been set for Feb. 11 to Feb. 15 for the winter term and April 7 to 11 in the spring, according to Office of Greek Life director Brian Joyce. However, the tapping dates set by the Office of Greek Life can be complicated by the operations of unrecognized senior societies at the College.
Course election is often a stressful time for Dartmouth students. Failing to register for a class can lead to entire alterations of a term schedule. Frantic messaging, swapping of classes and begging a professor to let you into class all comprise this stressful time.
When a technology entrepreneur presents a high-profile plan to the House Financial Services Committee to provide low-cost access to financial markets and payments services to billions of people without bank accounts, most people would applaud him as a 21st-century hero. But Mark Zuckerberg is no ordinary tech entrepreneur — he has earned a bad reputation as the monopolist who oversaw egregious violations of user privacy.
When I was little, I asked my mom what makes Democrats different from Republicans. She tried to figure out how to explain the difference in 10-year-old-friendly terms. My mother’s response, not entirely tongue-in-cheek, was that “Republicans are motivated by self-interest, and Democrats are concerned about what’s good for others.” The differences as I learned them were not political; they were moral.

As fall term winds down and interim approaches, many students face an issue beyond finals and winter break plans: food insecurity. Despite efforts to address the issue, the lack of affordable dining options in the local area, especially during breaks, often leaves a number of students scrambling for alternatives. However, Dartmouth Dining Services and Student Assembly are working to resolve at least part of this issue.
On Friday, Cleveland Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta visited Dartmouth to speak to College President Phil Hanlon and government and quantitative social sciences professor Michael Herron’s class, QSS 30.01, “Sports Analytics,” and the sports analytics club. DePodesta gained notoriety after the publication of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book, “Moneyball,” which was later adapted into a popular motion picture. “Moneyball” details how Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane and DePodesta, portrayed by Jonah Hill in the movie, used sports analytics to propel the team to a record-breaking winning streak and the 2002 American League Championship Series. DePodesta spoke with The Dartmouth about “Moneyball” and analytics.
As students sort through their email inboxes, they may see that some new clubs have become recognized by the Council of Student Organizations. On Oct. 16, COSO recognized 14 new clubs and organizations.
The term “cancel culture” is the latest euphemism for political correctness. Often a term lobbed leftward, cancel culture refers to the online public shaming, usually of a celebrity, for some past action now deemed inappropriate. The intention is to encourage others to “cancel” consumption of the celebrity’s work.
Today is Día de Los Muertos, the Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Central America, honoring those who have passed on. Last week was Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, a celebration of new beginnings, the prevailing of good over evil
“Watchmen” seems like HBO’s first attempt at a replacement TV show for “Game of Thrones.” Even before the disappointing finale of “Game of Thrones” which aired this May, it seems HBO has been clamoring to produce a new hit show to keep their subscribers. My verdict on whether or not “Watchmen” has the ability to do just that is — being only two episodes into the season — hard to say, but it’s at least off to a good start.
