One on One

(10/30/06 11:00am)

It was not a good week for me. I soiled quite dramatically in both academic and athletic venues, leaving me with my journalism career to fall back on, which is never good for the old self-esteem. In light of my impressive failings, I decided to grab a few minutes with Nick Christman '08. A starter on the soccer team for most of the year and an academic hard guy, I thought I'd sit him down and see if I could pick up some life lessons, or at least a laugh or two.

Big Green football shut out at home by Harvard, falls to 1-6

(10/30/06 11:00am)

Dawson, Harvard's prolific senior running back who is on his way to breaking the all-time Ivy League rushing record held by "Big" Ed Marinaro, rushed for 164 yards on 26 carries, and scored three of Harvard's four touchdowns. He was responsible for all of the scoring before the half, which the Crimson entered with a 21-0 lead. Most importantly, however, he set the ball rolling in the right direction for Harvard at Memorial Field on a wet afternoon.

Men's hockey sweeps through Harvard, opening weekend

(10/30/06 11:00am)

Such was the case for the men's hockey team as the 17th-ranked Big Green (2-0-0, 1-0-0 ECACHL) opened the 2006-07 season at home defeating Ivy League rival Harvard (0-1-0), 5-2 in a reprisal match of last year's ECACHL semifinal. The Crimson had trounced Dartmouth's NCAA dreams with a 10-1 shellacking in the semifinals, knocking the regular season champions out of the league tournament and into bubble-team status for the national tournament. The Big Green veterans returning for this season would not be quick to forget this sporting equivalent of a knee to the groin.

Daily Debriefing

(10/30/06 11:00am)

Professor James Weinstein, chairman of orthopedics at Dartmouth, co-authored a study examining the number of spine surgeries performed on Medicare patients. The topic of back surgery is a subject of debate among health care experts, with some arguing that the number of surgeries is unnecessarily high. The study found that in high-surgery regions of the United States almost five in 1,000 Medicare patients underwent surgery, while as low as 0.6 out of every 1,000 did in low-surgery areas. According to Weinstein, there are not a high number of back problems in high-surgery areas, but a lack of consensus among doctors on what cases require surgery. "I'm not against spine surgery, I'm a spine surgeon," Weinstein said. "But we need to find out what works and make sure people who have those problems get it. We don't do that well."

Program links students with inmates

(10/30/06 11:00am)

The student and inmate actors gave the audiences vivid snapshots of the sometimes harsh realities of the inmates' former life situations. One story showed two children furiously playing with their video game controllers while a livid father marched in wondering why dinner wasn't ready yet. The alcoholic mother poorly attempted to cook a dinner while one of her children said, "Mom, the smoke detector isn't a timer."

Hood celebrates 150th anniversary of Assyrian reliefs

(10/30/06 11:00am)

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of their installation in Hanover, the reliefs will be the focus of this collaborative symposium, which, thanks to the sponsorship of the Fanny and Alan Leslie Center for the Humanities, will be free and open to the public. Faculty members from Dartmouth's art history, Jewish studies and religion departments, as well as guest scholars from around the world, will present their scholarship by means of open dialogue, taking advantage of the small size of their panel by hosting more of a discussion than a seminar.

'Snakes' proves popular with Dartmouth audience

(10/30/06 11:00am)

Just because a real-life concept seems a bit unappealing does not mean one should not give its prolific, culture-changing fictional reenactment a chance. A prime example of this would be the 2006 B-movie Internet hype machine "Snakes on a Plane," which made its snake-tacular Dartmouth debut in Spaulding Auditorium this Saturday to a theatre packed with no fewer than 199 screaming, cheering, hollering students.
