Capuano advocates intervention in Sudan, the withdrawal of troops from Iraq with possible redeployment in the future, and the expansion of funding for public health care.

Reports of increasing casualties have continually flooded the news since the Iraq war began in 2003, but the large number of injuries that also result are seldom mentioned.

At Columbia University and Harvard University, soap operas produced and directed by students have come to captivate audiences on campus, online and in the media. The shows, which focus predominantly on the experiences of freshmen, provide snapshots of everything from roommates' first meetings to college parties, drugs and sexual endeavors.
"The whole point of this event is to present a real perspective for people," said Jonathan Merten '09, who organized the week's events. "It's easy to look at the stats and see that a billion people live on less than a dollar a day. This puts a real face on it. It's not trying to replicate poverty; it's just a representation."
The August departure of Associate Dean Tommy Lee Woon, who headed the Office of Pluralism and Leadership, has left Dean of Student Life Holly Sateia to oversee the office in addition to fulfilling her duties as a dean. This has increased the workload of OPAL's remaining staff members, she said.
It certainly is not easy to pull off a really scary play, the kind of unsettling performance that stays with you long after you leave the theater. Maybe you can't decide whether you loved it or hated it, probably because you're not totally comfortable with the new way it made you think about something -- war, hats, anything. It might leave you a little confused; you might even have a nightmare about it.

It's that time of the week again. Yes, they're still letting me write a weekly column, so sorry to disappoint all of the Tim Kidera proponents out there who support his disappointingly weak ad hominem attacks. What's that? It's Tom Kidera, not Tim? Oh well. I think I've given him enough ink already, so I'll just leave little Timmy alone and let him make more hard-guy blunt references.
The men's and women's swimming and diving squads competed in a series of heated meets this weekend. The men narrowly dropped their Friday contest to Colgate by a score of 126.5 to 114.5, before being trounced on Saturday by Ivy League counterparts Cornell and Harvard, 231 to 62 and 230 to 65, respectively. The women, however, put on a strong showing as they split results with a pair of conference foes.

Last Monday, Drew Lerman '10's comic, "The Still North," was set in a Dartmouth frat basement (Nov. 6). There was drinking, there was vomiting and there was sex. But there was also Nietzsche.
Mark T. Hegel, Ph.D. of the psychiatry department and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Medical School recently conducted a study showing that almost half of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients are afflicted by significant emotional distress or symptoms of psychiatric disorders before treatment. Hegel and his colleagues screened 236 women faced with breast cancer diagnosis and assessed the patients' emotional and mental health. All of the women reported that their new diagnosis was a source of stress, and this stress was significant enough in almost half the women to possibly merit treatment. Roughly one-tenth of the women showed symptoms of major depression, and another 10 percent had symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Because the symptoms of emotional stress often become even worse after treatment begins, Hegel suggests assessing the mental health of more cancer patients.

While the Facebook.com group "Wikipedia is the source of all my knowledge" was created out of humor, its title has a grain of truth for many students at Dartmouth. However, the use of the popular website for academic purposes is receiving mixed reviews from faculty members.
