No need for the double-take: The posters read "Islamo-Fashion Awareness Week." Al-Nur marked the beginning of its Islamo-Fashion Awareness Week with a movie on Monday. Events planned for the rest of the week include group discussions and a sundown prayer. The event takes place two weeks after the controversy surrounding headline speaker Robert Spencer, who concluded "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week" on Monday, Oct. 29th.

I was amazed by the evident contradictions in an email sent out last week concerning the fight against hunger. Students were enticed to attend a meeting about the struggle against hunger and health issues in the world by offering them free food. I was even more surprised to see that I was one of few to react to this rather ironic message. It seems to me quite pathetic that there is a need to bribe students into attending meetings concerning global issues, as our own drive to promote change is too weak of an incentive.
President Wright gets extraordinary (for lack of a better word) facetime. It seems as though almost every other week, I hear about our president receiving public recognition for his admirable, ongoing work with U.S. military veterans. He even managed to beat out Tom Brady for "New Englander of the Year"! But as I think about James Wright's non-Dartmouth-related actions, I can't help but question what his role is, and should be, as Dartmouth's president. Ultimately, President Wright seems to understand his role to be that of a figurehead and fundraiser, and while this may have its flaws, the College certainly benefits from it.
I first saw "Lonesome" a little over a year ago, at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado. I had seen roughly 12 feature films in the preceding 72 hours, and was drifting along in a sleep-deprived movie coma when our program director announced that the next screening on the agenda was a black-and-white silent movie from 1928. I remember sighing in blissful relief at the thought that, at last, I had come upon a film worth sleeping through.
Men's soccer defeats Cornell, focuses attention on Brown.
Overall, the team was satisfied with its play on Saturday.
The team demonstrated marked improvement over last weekend as it worked cohesively as a unit to come through in the clutch against the Tigers in its second come-from-behind victory of the year.
Alex Rodriguez is the best player in baseball. He deserves to be paid as such. But the best player in baseball does not deserve to be paid $350 million. When Babe Ruth had baseball's highest salary at $80,000 in 1930, he was paid $5,000 more than President Hoover. Well, Alex Rodriguez is asking for $34.6 million more per year than the President--something seems a bit off.
Salary levels in professional sports have undergone an absolutely meteoric rise over the last quarter century. Since the turn of the century, the NFL and MLB's highest payrolls have risen by $73 and $97 million, respectively.
After a split on the road last weekend, the Dartmouth women's volleyball team still had a mathematical shot to clinch the Ivy League championship coming into this weekend. The squad hoped to beat Princeton and Penn, the top two teams in the conference, for a chance to head into the final homestand of the season a game back of second-place Penn. Dartmouth was unable to pull off an upset in either match, however, losing to Princeton 3-1 and Penn 3-0, effectively ending its conference championship hopes.
Melisa Krnjaic '10 helped the Big Green hold Cornell to just one goal.
The Big Green was in control for the entire game, consistently threatening the Big Red goal while shutting down its offense.
Rob Pritchard '09 and the Big Green could not complete a weekend sweep, falling to Clarkson Saturday night.
Last year, Clarkson (6-2-0, 3-0-0 ECACHL) won the ECAC postseason tournament while St. Lawrence (3-5-0, 0-3-0 ECACHL) had the best record during the regular season. The two teams were picked by the coaches of the ECACHL to finish first and third respectively this year.
The Big Green pummeled the Big Red to improve to 3-2 in the Ivy League.
Bennewitz, back in the starting role, led Dartmouth's charged offense to a 59-31 rout of Cornell (4-4, 1-4 Ivy).
Like many, I have emotional scars from high school. There was, of course, a gaggle of rabid ribbon-wearing girls that wreaked havoc on my life. They were brutally ridiculous; I was helpless.
