Addressing the pressing foreign-policy questions of Iraq, Iran and Darfur, Samantha Power, a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and advisor to presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., advocated the candidate's foreign policy platforms to around 12 Dartmouth students in Sanborn Library on Saturday morning. Power emphasized that Obama's alleged "experience deficit" is not a hindrance to his leadership capability.
Presidential hopeful and former governor Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., addressed residents, doctors and staff of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Friday.
Huckabee chose to focus on his personal political experiences rather than his current platform, highlighting the successes of his health programs as governor. He told the crowd that, by mandating all public school students to have their body mass index measured and allowing state employees time to exercise during work hours, as governor he helped the government increase its long-term savings.
Dartmouth Board of Trustees Chairman Ed Haldeman '70 and College President James Wright declared that the College would "continue working" with the Association of Alumni despite its lawsuit against the College in an interview with The Dartmouth after the board's November meeting this past weekend. Following through on the recommendations of its September governance report, the Board of Trustees added three new standing committees to its structure and received updates on the College's $1.3 billion capital campaign and plans for new facilities.
Big Green soccer has long been one of the most exciting sports to watch each fall. But the question for far too long among spectators has been, "Where the heck do I sit?"
A few weeks ago, I toppled Schmidley in our debate over whether college football needs a playoff system. I still maintain that it does not, but we're rapidly approaching another BCS nightmare scenario. After Illinois all but ended Ohio State's title dreams, the top BCS ranking was thrown up for grabs. Currently, there are eight one-loss teams, seven of which hail from major conferences. More importantly, there are two undefeated teams remaining -- and one has a legitimate gripe about not being the top-ranked team in the country. All things considered, several teams are going to end the season feeling as if they've been cheated out of a shot to play for the national championship. Umm, so why do I still think the BCS works?
It's almost that time of year, college football fans, and the hype surrounding this year's BCS National Championship game is skyrocketing thanks to the most riveting regular season in recent memory.
Tom Lobben '08 and the Big Green fell to Brown in a heartbreaker, 1-0.
With the loss on Saturday, Dartmouth falls to 10-4-2, 4-1-1 Ivy. However, the team remains in second place in the league standings, barely edging out rivals Harvard and Princeton. Brown remains undefeated in the Ivy League, improving their record to 6-0, and increasing to 14-1-1 overall.
The Dartmouth men's basketball team tipped off its season this past weekend at the inaugural Air Force Classic tournament in Colorado. Joining Dartmouth at Clune Arena were teams from the Air Force Academy, the University of Northern Colorado and Virginia Military Institute.
The Brown Bears jumped ahead of the Big Green at the end of the second quarter in Saturday's match.
The Bears' (4-5, 3-3 Ivy) offense was led almost single-handedly by WR Bobby Sewall. Sewall caught 18 passes for 141 yards, had 15 carries for 154 yards and four scores, and even threw a touchdown pass.
Big Green hockey started the weekend off strong with a home victory over Union, but lost the next night to RPI.
Friday night, the Big Green relied on a quick start to put early pressure on the Dutchmen, scoring three goals in the first period. However, the first goal proved to be all that was necessary, as goalie and assistant captain Mike Devine '08 recorded 29 saves to earn his first shutout of the season.

I read the article on Nov. 8 about professors being able to monitor students' Blackboard use ("Profs monitor student Blackboard use"). Why on earth has the feature been included in the Blackboard software? I could see the educational value of looking at general statistics, such as how many students accessed Blackboard, or a general chart of when different documents are accessed. But for professors to have information as to exactly who is looking at what and when? What precedent or need exists for professors to get specific information about which students are reading what and when?
Several weeks ago, along with about 200 alumni, I attended a briefing in the San Francisco Bay Area about affairs related to the expansion of the Board of Trustees. That was one of a number of informational sessions conducted by trustees over a period of a couple of days around the country to try and keep alumni informed about "goings-on" in Hanover.
Quick, what's the opposite of a "jock?" If you said "nerd" (like I did), you're probably not alone. Jocks versus nerds. Body versus mind. Hulking, football-jersey-wearing meatheads versus skinny, bespectacled computer geeks. The dichotomy between brains and brawn is one that has been reinforced and perpetuated by countless movie, television and pop culture references.
Although Veterans Day was Sunday, Monday is the official day of observance. What's this? Yet another national holiday which Dartmouth does not observe, but which prevents you from going to the bank? At some level, Veterans Day is just another holiday, but its meaning is much deeper than that.
"Apology: noun, a written or spoken expression of one's regret, remorse, or sorrow for having insulted, failed, injured, or wronged another" says Dictionary.com.
