Versatility is a quality rarely found in the solo work of super-group veterans like Sting, Phil Collins and Pete Townshend. Paul McCartney, and his latest solo release, "Driving Rain," is the exception to the rule. On the inspired 16-track album, Paul augments his superb bass playing by giving soulful performances on the piano, acoustic and electric guitars and drums in addition to vocals on all of the songs.
What is the best way to start building a championship-winning basketball team? While having a competent point guard to serve as a floor general or a lights-out shooter to provide instant offense are keys to fashioning a good squad, the real key is having a strong presence in the middle.
These preseason sports previews are such a crapshoot, especially at the college level where the athletes are, shall we say, less refined. This is a level of competition where anything can happen. An athlete can go from a zero to a hero and then back to a zero in a week. Sports Illustrated, with all their overly enthused interns, can't accurately predict the capability of a college basketball team. There are just too many factors, chief of which is a team's ability to mature and develop raw talent.
After dominating the Dartmouth intramural league for a third consecutive year, the Gamma Delta Chi flag football team traveled to the snowy tundra of Ithaca, N.Y., last weekend for the Northeast Regional Flag Football Tournament.
Normally when one previews a team without any seniors returning for the upcoming season, the prognosis is really grim. This would be the case for any other team but the Dartmouth women's basketball team, which has established itself over the past decade as one of the top teams in the Ivy League and New England.
The Dartmouth men's basketball team has an uphill battle ahead of itself this winter if the Big Green hopes to win its first Ivy League title since 1959. With only two seniors and six freshmen, the team is hoping to overcome youth and inexperience in an attempt to improve upon the 8-19 finish of last year. With a little luck, the Big Green may do just that and knock off some of the league favorites in the process.
This weekend, the Dartmouth women's soccer team advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament with a pair of thrilling victories in the First and Second Rounds. On Friday, the Big Green beat UW-Milwaukee, 1-0, in double overtime on a goal from Milwaukee native Katherine Kannenberg '05. On Sunday, Dartmouth topped 20th-ranked Michigan, 1-0, after Mary McVeigh '03 scored with less than five minutes remaining. The Big Green will face second-ranked Santa Clara in California on Saturday in the third round.
Dartmouth junior Tom McArdle earned All-America honors yesterday at the NCAA championship cross country race in Furman, S.C., as the Big Green men finished 24th in a field of 31 teams.
Lint flabbergasts me. I'm not talking about the stuff that creeps up my stomach to burrow in my navel. I'm talking about the fluffy gray residue in the dryer. Whenever I wash clothes, I'm always astounded to find how much has accumulated in the lint-trap of the dryer. (And why is it always an odd gray color? Occasionally it'll be some cotton-candy pink or bluish hue, but for the most part, it's a rather unattractive slate-gray tone. Even when I wash my whites, the lint always comes out the same color.)
Although we respect the ongoing efforts of the Hanover Police Department to find the per- petrator of two recent on-campus assaults, the parading of a student through Food Court last Thursday evening was unacceptable.
Jennifer Rottmann '02 smiles when she remembers watching the owner of a new Habitat for Humanity house impersonating Elvis at a Habitat benefit concert.
With unemployment figures rising and the economy in a state of decline, seniors' search for jobs thus far is less fruitful this year than in the past. While some students have received job offers through recruiting and from summer and off-term internships, many are still struggling to find employment at a time when job openings are sparse.
After playing audience to over two hours of public commentary last night, Hanover's Board of Selectmen chose to delay voting on its controversial noise ordinance.
After being paraded through the main dining area of Food Court Thursday evening by Safety and Security and Hanover Police officers, Timothy Hall '05 was informed yesterday that he was no longer a suspect in the ongoing assault investigation, according to Hanover Police Chief Nick Giaccone.
At 10 'til eight last Saturday night, a horde of people could be found milling around the Hopkins Center. Half of these were Dartmouth students trying to grab a bite to eat at the Courtyard Caf before the penultimate performance of Shakespeare Alley's smash hit "As You Like It."
I woke up Saturday morning with the strangest urge to make a chain mail shirt and embroider. What better place to go to satisfy my yearnings than at the Medieval Faire that was being held in the Collis Common Ground? The Society for Creative Anachronisms and Dartmouth's Medieval Enthusiasts co-sponsored the four-hour event that was filled with fun activities for all.
It's time for this week's "Survivor: Africa" recap, but before you begin reading, why not have a delicious Mountain Dew?
The film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" hit theatres across the country last Friday, even one in Lebanon. Rowling's series of novels is wildly popular among ten-year-olds, but widely read among college students and adults as well. Those familiar with the books largely agree that they are incredible. But can an incredible book give rise to an incredible movie?
