Why did I ask Ehud Barak, "What is peace?" I asked Mr. Barak what is peace because I believe it is the one question that is not being asked. Instead of focusing on a broader vision of what a peaceful settlement might be, what it would look like, Israel, Palestine and the rest of the world are trapped in a quagmire of immediate political concerns. I did not expect Mr. Barak to answer my question. Nor would I expect Mr. Arafat to provide us with some vision of what it would mean to live at peace with Israel. The problem is that neither Mr. Barak nor Mr. Arafat nor Mr. Sharon has stopped to consider what peace is and what peace would mean. Israel, Palestine, the United States and the international community are caught in political concerns that conceal the obvious path to security for Israel and Palestine. We must realize that Sept. 11 was only the beginning. We can no longer afford to split our world into east and west. We can no longer afford not to ask what is peace.
They called the Gulf War the first war fought on TV, but they never dreamed that war would be fought through TV. Conflicts are no longer won or lost on the battlefield; this war is for control of your mind. And if you think my X-Files verbiage is out of place, then you haven't heard some of the conspiracy theories that are out there.
It's high noon, a drop of sweat slides down my brow, and I enter the gauntlet. Between the detectors, past the plaster walls and into the stacks I stride. Thousands of book titles try to catch my attention from either side, but I stare straight ahead, completely focused. A yellow tape arrow under my foot directs me as I swing a sharp left. More books pass by unnoticed before I swing a sharp right, bringing my target into view. Someone's coming right at me, but I pay him no heed. Just before we slam into each other, I swivel my shoulders sideways so that I slip by, barely missing him, all the time keeping my eyes locked on my target: the two lightswitches on either side of the last row of books -- the only two switches along that path that can be operated manually.
A Hanover zoning ordinance known colloquially as the "three-persons rule" has been the bane of students seeking off-campus housing since its passage in 1961 and revision in 1976.
Reaching out to Greeks and unaffiliated students alike with a platform and a personal touch that appealed to voters across the political spectrum, Janos Marton '04 waged a successful campaign that last week carried him past his rivals in the race for student body president.
Stuart Lord, the Dean of the Tucker Foundation has worked at a feverish pitch since coming to Dartmouth two years ago, but some student leaders say he has had a polarizing effect on the Foundation.
A door-lock system for College residence halls based on coded ID cards -- in the works since the winter of 2001 -- might finally debut in a test run over the Summer term.
Two Dartmouth alumni were elected by the Board of Trustees to five-year terms on the Board, the College announced yesterday.
Woody Allen has made a name for himself writing, directing and starring in pictures with offbeat humor and strange neurotic characters. "Hollywood Ending" is no exception to this trend. Allen shines in what is perhaps his most neurotic role to date, and his keen acting provides many laugh-out-loud moments.
This weekend, Dartmouth will play host to a Professional Squash Association satellite event, the Dartmouth Mudbowl, at the squash courts in the Kresge sports complex. The 16-man main-draw field, with a total prize pool of $4,500, will run from Thursday to Sunday, with Thursday composed of an additional 16-man qualifying playoff to get into main-draw play, running from noon to 5 p.m.
Will the third time be a charm?
The decision for Dartmouth to become coeducational was a good one for the College. On that point, students, administrators and faculty would agree almost unanimously. Some alumni, particularly those who attended an all-male Dartmouth, disagree, but the overwhelming majority of the Dartmouth community has accepted the new vision of Dartmouth as an improvement over the old order. Indeed, it was this sentiment that led to the decree in the Student Life Initiative a few years ago that "The [residential] system should be substantially coeducational and provide opportunities for greater interaction among all Dartmouth students." Given this general consensus, should the College continue its prohibition on mixed-sex River apartments? Logically, it should not.
Downtown Hanover, as most of us would agree, provides everything that a college student could ever need. When I first strolled down Main Street, I was almost overwhelmed by the variety of shops there. In fact, I didn't dare venture past the Dartmouth Co-op. Main Street, to me, seemed to continue on forever. And after almost half a year of exploring it (though I have not experienced all that is there), I have come to the conclusion that the only thing that prevents Main Street from achieving a hallowed status akin to that of the Downtown Crossing in Boston is its dearth of authentic Chinese food.
Professor Jama A. Dadwi of St. Mary's University in Halifax, Canada, provided an in-depth and positive look at the realities behind Islamic concepts such as peace, brotherhood and Jihad in last night's most recent Islamic Awareness Week event.
People have told Janos Marton '04 that being Student Body President will look good on his resume, but Marton says he won't capitalize on his political experience anytime soon.
Provost Barry Scherr discussed the possibility of a new student social space in North Fairbanks Hall and Assembly members distributed a number of faculty awards last night at the Student Assembly's first meeting since general elections were held last week.
All Americans --whether directly involved or not -- were profoundly affected by the events of September 11, according to New York University professor Diana Taylor.
Beginning next fall, student organizations will be able to hold office space in Robinson Hall only if selected through a newly instituted application process.
