On March 22, special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the two-year long investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. Many Democrats have spent the previous two years on the edge of their seats, hoping Mueller’s report would allege that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Two days after Mueller submitted his report, attorney general William Barr submitted a four-page summary of the report to Congress — a decision that many Democrats decried as indicative of a lack of transparency and oversight. Given Barr’s public skepticism of the investigation, Democrats aren’t wrong to question whether Barr held back details that could have hurt the President’s standing. But even if Democrats have grounds to pursue a full release of the report, they dwell on the issue at their own peril.
Campus outsiders use many stereotypes to describe Dartmouth students. Posts on college-matching website Unigo portray Dartmouth as a fraternity-dominated, beer-drinking party school, but also as a place where students are laid back, outdoorsy and active. I find these Dartmouth stereotypes contradictory — on one hand, students are known for extreme partying, and on the other, they are seen as healthy and physically active. The truth is that both stereotypes are largely valid.
In the wake of last month’s horrific massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, all of the usual media phrases and buzzwords that have grown so familiar and tired were put back into circulation. First came the expressions of shock and sorrow, peppered with words like “unimaginable” that have not been applicable for a long time. Then came the discussion of the responsibilities of the news media, wherein a number of very serious-sounding people have the same conversation about not showing the video of the shooting for what seems like the 30th time.
Joshua Keniston, who formerly served as vice president and chief of staff to executive vice president Rick Mills, was named vice president for institutional projects on April 5. Prior to joining the Dartmouth community in January 2018, Keniston worked with the College on a number of projects as a consultant with the Huron Consulting Group.
Last week, government professor Deborah Brooks and a group of Dartmouth students launched the International Menstrual Health Entrepreneurship Roundup, a free website that provides resources to individual entrepreneurs and organizations that aim to address global menstrual health problems. As a project under the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding’s Dartmouth Global Girls Forward Lab, an undergraduate research team that gives students the potential to create projects that help forward the interests of girls and women worldwide, IMHER focuses on raising awareness of global menstrual health and helping people in the field tackle related problems.
On Tuesday, Dartmouth Planned Parenthood Generation Action hosted a panel discussion about reproductive healthcare and policy in New Hampshire and nationally.
Dartmouth Dining Services currently employs 46 temporary workers at wages below their unionized counterparts. This practice, which has been increasing in recent years, has drawn criticism from the Service Employees International Union, the largest union on Dartmouth’s campus with 477 members covering areas such as Safety and Security, custodial staff and DDS workers.
This spring, English and creative writing professor Joshua Bennett is teaching ENGL 53.29/AAAS 35.50; “Introduction to African American Environmental Thought: The Black Outdoors.” Bennett said that his work as a poet and a professor of the class both relate to his interest in preservation and spreading awareness.His course seeks to bring light to the vast artistic and ecological life of the African American literary canon as well as their lived experiences in the outdoors. Bennett has a fascination with black literature and poetics, especially in relation to environmental and animality studies.
In her second installment of "Recollections: A Dartmouth Experience," Raja glimpses at humanity's shared fate with computers.
When we think of blueprints, a lot of things come to mind: planning, designing, rearranging. We use blueprints and their corresponding process of design thinking to construct the soundest building, to create the best D-Plan and even to solve our problem sets. As students, we like having steps to follow in order to ultimately be successful. Having things planned out provides us with a sense of reassurance, with the comfort of knowing that it will all make sense in the end. But sometimes, we hit a block in the road, and things don’t go exactly as planned. Even so, things have a funny way of working out.
Think about a recent conversation you had that was particularly meaningful. Maybe it made you reevaluate your own perspectives or reflect on your personal values. Maybe it was at 1 a.m. with your roommates over Domino’s buffalo wings, or with a mentor or with a friend from home. Mine was with an 8-year-old on a Caribbean cruise. Said 8-year-old was passing my friends and I when he suddenly stopped us and asked suspiciously, “Hey. What do you guys do at night time?”
Going to college is scary. Being in college is scary. I combat this fear with planning. On the drive from Alexandria, VA to Hanover, I opened the Notes app on my phone and made a list of goals that would allow me to become the version of myself that would thrive at Dartmouth. I’ve stuck to some of them. Some didn’t work out because I didn’t understand then what it was really like being here. Planning allows me to feel like I have a handle on the future, but I’ve accepted that I have to revise my expectations when life happens.
What's your blueprint for success?
A few days ago, my friend texted me with horrifying news: on Saturday afternoon at the end of week one, Sanborn Library was full. Armchairs piled with jackets, laptops crammed on tables, every-alcove-occupied kind of full.
Mike Trout might just be the best baseball player to ever live. In just 3,898 at-bats, the 27-year-old Trout has hit 245 homeruns, stolen 190 bases, posted a .307 batting average and amassed a whopping 64.2 wins above replacement (a statistic that estimates the number of wins a player contributes to his team). Since his 2011 debut, Trout has won six Silver Slugger awards and has finished in the top two of MVP voting in every season but 2017, when he missed 39 games for a thumb injury and still finished fourth. Trout already has a higher career wins above replacement than forty Hall of Famers, including Yogi Berra, Harmon Killebrew and Jackie Robinson. Only the great Ty Cobb, who retired in 1928, had a better WAR by the age of 26. Last month, the Los Angeles Angels rewarded Trout with a 12-year, $430 million extension, the largest contract in the history of American sports. In 150 years of Major League Baseball, the sport has never seen a player like Mike Trout.
The recent college admissions scandal has focused national attention on college admissions processes at elite institutions. However, only some of these accounts considered the influence of social inequalities on students’ experiences after admission. Especially at elite colleges, social inequality between students runs deep, unfairly disadvantaging some students. These inequalities can effectively bar disadvantaged students from the same opportunities that their privileged peers enjoy.
Using funny memes as a coping mechanism.
It’s a teakettle! It’s a dog whistle! It’s Andrew Stanford of West Lebanon recently breaking the Guinness World Record for highest note whistled — and it was whistled in Dartmouth’s linguistics lab. His whistle reached 8,372 hertz, eclipsing the previously established record of 7,040 hertz.
With the recent release of admissions results for the Class of 2023, vice provost for enrollment and dean of admissions and financial aid Lee Coffin said that ongoing trends may necessitate different admissions strategies at the College. Specifically, the changing importance of different geographic regions has already resulted in alterations to Dartmouth’s admissions practices, and a court challenge to Harvard University’s admissions practices for Asian students could result in a potential threat to the holistic admissions process the College employs.
