The Dartmouth Aires did not let the temperate climate of Washington, D.C., preclude them from celebrating an early "white" Christmas on Friday, when the a cappella group performed at the White House as part of its winter tour. The Aires sang holiday favorites and some of their arrangements from NBC's "The Sing-Off" for the last of a series of private holiday parties held by President Barack Obama.
The College offered 465 students early decision admission to the Class of 2016 out of the 1,800 applications received, according to a College press release. This marks a 21-student increase, as 444 students were accepted early into the Class of 2015 from an 1,759-person applicant pool. This rise in accepted students is due to the strength of the early applicant pool, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Maria Laskaris said in an interview with The Dartmouth.
Head into any Greek house on a party night and you'll see notice countless interactions that grow more muddled as BAC's climb. Since their first gig at Theta in February, 2011, a group of Dartmouth students have been working creatively to answer questions about the best way to handle the complications of drinking on campus. Green Team, the student-run bystander intervention program designed to reduce alcohol harm and sexual assault, has grown by leaps and bounds since its initial implementation. Modeled after a similar bystander intervention program at Haverford called the Quaker Bouncers, Green Team began shakily and suffered staffing challenges in the Spring. According to Will Conaway '13, a Green Team committee member, Summer term bore witness to a great increase in use. From spring to summer, staffing issues that left some parties staffed by only a partial team disappeared. Now, Conaway says, anywhere between 20 to 30 people sign up to work work Green Team on a given Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. Conaway estimates that there are over 300 trained Green Team members on campus this fall and even more off campus. Recognizing the benefits of having members trained to deal with high-risk Greek issues, some Greek organizations have begun sending members to get trained. Beyond solving staffing issues for Green Team, Conaway believes that Green Team training will kick in for students whether they're on duty or hanging out casually with friends. In other words, hundreds of students trained in bystander intervention are now deployed across campus each night, certainly a positive for campus. At this point, Green Team's fate is no longer in question. Conaway describes the program as steady-state since the summer and resources do not appear to be an issue as the group's received strong support from the College. Green Team's focus is shifting from major implementation challenges to data collection, the analysis of which can feed into larger College harm reduction strategies. Interestingly, other colleges may begin to pick up the program. In early November, students from Depauw University visited Hanover to discuss the program with Green Team members and observed a party in progress. Conaway notes that many schools are still stuck with a policy enforcement strategy with regard to alcohol. If other schools begin to try a harm reduction approach, we may see locally grown varieties of Green Team and the Haverford Bouncers popping up across the nation. Conaway seems optimistic, but recognizes harm reduction in social spaces as only one of many steps to changing campus drinking culture. And, perhaps in the not-so-distant future, Dartmouth will be held up as a model of innovative alcohol policies.

Dartmouth researchers recognized for recognizing photoediting Photo Courtesy Of Wired Dartmouth computer science prof Hany Farid was recognized for his work developing a software tool that can identify the amount of photo shopping a picture has been subjected to in a variety of newspapers this week. Working with Ph.D. student Eric Kee, Farid created an algorithm that measures how much images of faces and bodies have been altered. The team used online surveys to create a ranking system for the level of changes that gives images a number from one to five, one being the least edited. This technology could be used as a tool to help develop a rating system to show viewers how much images have been edited. You can see how these levels of change play out here.
