Daily Debriefing

(11/27/07 8:41am)

Simbex LLC, a New Hampshire research and development company, was granted $3.6 million this September to partner with Dartmouth and Dartmouth Medical School, among four other hospitals and universities, to further develop its Head Impact Telemetry System by The National Institute of Health. According to the Associated Press, the HIT system is a high-tech device designed to detect and prevent head injuries. It is comprised of a helmet, data transmitter and control panel. The device has been tested on football players across the country since 2004. By recording and analyzing helmet impacts, the HIT system could potentially help football teams and the military by determining what types of impacts cause head injuries and with what frequency.

Dartmouth top Ivy for intn'l study

(11/27/07 8:40am)

While students spending a term away from Hanover may be at a coveted internship with Goldman Sachs or may be at home for some much-needed rest, many are among the 60.9 percent of Dartmouth students who spend at least one term studying abroad through an off-campus or transfer credit program, according to the Institute of International Education. Dartmouth placed third in the Institute's national ranking of undergraduate study abroad participation among research institutions granting doctoral degrees, climbing seven spots from the 2006 report. Dartmouth was the top school in the Ivy League.

Kucinich urges Bush impeachment

(11/27/07 8:38am)

On the website Democracy for New Hampshire, one of the event's sponsors, the teach-in is described as an educational forum to relay the general history and structure of impeachment. The content of the evening consisted mainly of reasons why the panelists believed that Bush and Cheney have violated the Constitution, and the event served as a forum for citizens to voice their discontent with the current administration.

Changes in Latitudes...

(11/27/07 4:42am)

Those 1490s ... talk about a great decade. The Moors surrendered after the long Reconquista, the Swiss won their independence and the Portuguese set out to establish an empire. Now, they were a people who knew their maps. Mapmaking schools sprouted across the nation, and their prince even earned the title "the Navigator." Simply put, cartography was cool. Unfortunately, the fad passed before it could begin a craze in modern America. As I'm sure many of my geographically-literate comrades agree, it's a challenge to have a conversation with someone who can't even locate Egypt on a globe.

Grass-rootin' for Policy Change

(11/27/07 4:41am)

"In Zambia, sex is not a negotiation," Gesh Banda, a Grassroot Soccer program assistant, and a 23-year-old native of Lusaka, Zambia, told me the other day during a conversation about Zambian culture. Gesh explained that in a typical Zambian relationship, men control all "terms" of sexual interaction. Women are expected to be submissive, to comply with the demands and desires of their partner, who is often unfaithful. While I was discouraged by what Gesh was telling me, I was not necessarily surprised. After two months of visiting schools and soccer teams throughout Lusaka to monitor the delivery of the GRS curriculum, the difference between young girls and boys was more than clear. Zambian boys come right up to me, asking "how ahh you, how ahh you" and shaking hands. They are not shy about calling me John Cena, their favorite WWF wrestler, or David Beckham (in both cases the similarities unfortunately end at the fact that I am white and have light colored hair). On the other hand, the young girls in the class typically stay seated at their desks, they do not make eye contact with me or the other GRS staff, and they rarely ask or answer questions.

Women's basketball continues scoring struggles at St. John's

(11/27/07 4:21am)

Although the Big Green was able to clamp down defensively early in the contest, the Red Storm pulled away with its hot shooting and costly turnovers committed by Dartmouth. Aiding St. John's was its bench, as the Red Storm got 22 points from its reserves, while Dartmouth was only able to get three points from its bench.

Main Street Museum provides a quirky getaway

(11/27/07 4:20am)

Much of the museum's collection is whimsical and humorous, but founder and curator David Fairbanks Ford encourages serious contemplation of his urban ore. Ford's artifacts include the following: Elvis's gallstones (alleged), dehydrated and framed cat carcasses, pressed poppy blossoms from Napoleon's grave, the Connecticut River Sea Monster and a jar of lint. These haphazard relics can be seen for free, although donations are always welcome.

Toe to Toe: Hodes versus Schmidley (Schmidley)

(11/26/07 7:24am)

Thanksgiving Day football. It has included the same two teams, Detroit and Dallas, for the past 41 years now. Hodes and I decided it was appropriate in the wake of this year's Thursday games to debate whether a change should be made, and whether Turkey Day football should take on a rotating schedule, with fans from all teams getting to periodically enjoy some pigskin with their turkey and stuffing.
