Sailors qualify for Championships

(11/01/06 11:00am)

The Big Green's coed sailors headed to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this weekend for the Schell Trophy, where winds ranged from five to 20 knots on Saturday and 20 to 50 knots on Sunday. To give the landlubber an idea of just how windy 50 knots is -- according to the Beaufort Wind Scale -- at 48 knots the sea surface becomes white with streaking spindrift, trees are uprooted, and considerable structural damage occurs.

Daily Debriefing

(11/01/06 11:00am)

College campuses are becoming hot spots for the spread of mumps, whooping cough and tuberculosis, said an article in yesterday's Inside Higher Ed online magazine. While all three diseases have been on the decline in the United States for years, greater international populations at universities have partially led to an increasing number of cases. At the University of Virginia, 29 cases of the mumps were recently reported. All of the infected students had received the two-dose vaccination for the disease, which is only 90 percent effective. At Missouri Southern State University, a few students received positive test results for tuberculosis, a reminder of the disease's prevalence throughout the world. While all three diseases are treatable and do not pose a real threat to individuals, there is always the alarming possibility of it becoming plague-like and affecting the mass population.

COS installs peer resource program to aid accused students

(11/01/06 11:00am)

Testing the delicate balance between student privacy and the opportunity to help out students in need, the Committee on Standards enacted the Judicial Resource Network, a peer resource program that allows students brought before COS to contact students who have gone through the process as a defendant or who have served on the COS board. The program was initiated based on Student Assembly suggestions to the COS last winter.

PB kicks off Nugget discount initiative

(11/01/06 11:00am)

Dartmouth students will receive a half-price discount on movie tickets at Hanover's Nugget Theatre starting today as part of a new initiative by the Programming Board. The initiative, which will allow students to see movies for $4 after presenting their student IDs at the ticket window, will take the place of Dartmouth Television's movie program that operated for the last two years.

Director Eastwood follows war film formula with 'Flags'

(11/01/06 11:00am)

My uncertainty was compounded by the unpleasant suspicion that the filmmakers shared this same confusion. "Flags of Our Fathers" starts with a single iconic image -- the raising of the American flag on Mount Suribachi at the battle of Iwo Jima -- and ends in a tangled knot of subplots and half-baked characters. It's not really a bad movie, per se; it's more like the scattered shards of six or seven good ones, reassembled into a whole that is far less than the sum of its parts.

Field hockey can't put win away, losing streak stays alive

(10/31/06 11:00am)

Tough times continued for the Big Green field hockey squad in the final homestand of the year at Scully-Fahey field, as the team dropped a pair of matches over the weekend. On Saturday, the squad lost to its Harvard rival with a score of 2-0 in the midst of pouring rain and cold temperatures. The team took on the Lady Orange of Syracuse on Sunday, when the squad dropped a heartbreaker in overtime, 3-2. The pair of losses means Dartmouth will finish the season in the bottom spot of the Ivy League standings.
