Joanne Needham, program officer for public programs and special events for the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, is retiring next month after a long career in a variety of fields. After earning her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Fairfield University, she worked in computer programming and project management at Houghton Mifflin, copy edited at the Journal of Neurosurgery and planned conferences at the Global Health Council. After being hired by the Rockefeller Center in 2011, she helped plan a 2011 Republican presidential debate that occurred at Dartmouth the next year. Over the course of her time at Dartmouth, she worked with invited speakers at the Rockefeller Center. Needham sat down with The Dartmouth to reflect on her career.
There is no one in the world who sounds like FKA twigs. Her music contains a multitude of recognizable influences, sure, but the way in which she seamlessly weaves together musical ideas from a broad range of genres and styles into her own music is unique to her and her alone in the modern landscape of popular music.
Coming from one who routinely wakes on Sunday mornings feeling little remorse for last night’s consumption of two Double-Doubles, Animal Fries and a 29-ounce Dr. Pepper, I’m constantly reminded of my “trust in the Lord” for my metabolism’s sake by the fact that Proverbs 3:5 is clearly printed on the underside of every soda cup at In-N-Out, including my own. And, all things considered, I’m not the only one unapologetically spending my Saturday nights ordering up highly-caloric, obesogenic, fast foods at my local Las Vegas burger temple.
The freedom of the press was defeated on a 15-13-4 vote earlier this week in a meeting of Harvard University’s Undergraduate Council, its student government body.
As students walk across the Green over the next few days, they may notice another fenced-off, ongoing campus project. Earlier this week, the College commenced drilling wells on the Green to learn more about the viability of a geoexchange system at the College, which would be a renewable energy option to meet up to 30 percent of the College’s heating needs.
The three percent rule states that a small, vocal minority of a population is enough to effect lasting social change through the use of nonviolent actions.
Individuals seeking to register to vote in New Hampshire cannot be denied the right to do so even if they have not yet obtained a driver’s license, according to a Nov. 7 letter sent by state officials to Hanover town clerk Betsy McClain.
Co-owners of Hanover Haircutters Ryan and Robert Romano, a father-son duo, have voiced criticism of the Office of Pluralism and Leadership’s hair care voucher program, which serves low-income communities on campus by offsetting the cost of hair care. The Romanos said that the vouchers can only be used at one barbershop in Hanover, unduly benefiting the operations of one shop over others.
Bringing a new perspective to our understanding of how people react in the face of disease is this term’s MainStage theater performance “The Living,” which will be performed in The Moore Theater from Nov. 15 to 17. With darkly dramatic scenes and a profound take on the humanity of remaining kind in the face of adversity, the play recalls the struggle of Londoners in 1665 during the height of the bubonic plague in a way that is current and unmistakably relevant to the epidemics that still threaten to unravel society today.
I’m a first-year, and I love the “frat ban.” Well, maybe I don’t love it, but I certainly understand where it’s coming from.
As we gear up to pack our bags for winterim and head off campus, one subject frequents conversation: Dartmouth abroad experiences. With the quick turnaround between arriving back on campus for winter term and the Feb. 1 due date for applications for study abroad programs in the 2020-21 year, now is the time we must consider our options and reach out for letters of recommendation.
As talk of “Medicare For All” begins to dominate the Democratic presidential primary, discussion of “Big Pharma,” or the pharmaceutical industry, become all the more frequent. The rising price of life-saving drugs contributes to a fast-growing sense of insecurity in the American health care system.
What part of your identity is most important to you?
The cliché of “finding yourself” never feels as real as it does during the four years of college. Many of us may have completely different conceptions of our identities than we did when we first stepped foot on Dartmouth’s campus. Perhaps this is because Dartmouth pushes you to develop as a person or because you experience a great deal of change over the course of the four years you spend here — or maybe because at a place like Dartmouth, you are virtually guranteed to interact with people whose identities differ from your own.
College is a time when students assert their independence. When arriving on campus, many students must grapple with their religious identities on their own for the first time, considering questions such as: “Should I go church today?” or “Should I pray before I eat?” Here, there’s no one forcing you to do anything; if you want to escape religion, you can.
The outdoors are an inherently expensive space, leading many people to associate outing clubs, like Dartmouth’s, with privilege. Today at 7:30 p.m. in One Wheelock, the Dartmouth Outing Club will be hosting an event called “Identity and the DOC” which aims to facilitate a conversation about privilege and the outdoors and take steps toward making the DOC an increasingly inclusive space, according to DOC president Sarah Kolk ’20.
It’s a running joke I’ve heard from twins and other students on campus alike: “Dartmouth loves twins.” Maybe that is true. But interestingly enough, there is some controversy surrounding how colleges address twins while making admissions decisions. In an article from the New York Times, William Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid at Harvard, explained that twins are viewed as separate individuals during the admissions process, and if they are qualified, both may be accepted.
Latin American, Latino and Caribbean studies professor Andre Pagliarini moved to Brazil with his family at age five and lived there until age 14. Pagliarni returned to the United States to further his education, majoring in history at the University of Maryland, College Park and studying the heritage of multiple world regions. Pagliarini said he was insired by his grandfather — who served a Brazilian diplomat during the Cold War — to study Latin American culture as a way of sustaining his Brazilian identity while living in the United States.
