On September 28, Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich spoke on the floor of the House in regards to the proposed $700 billion Wall Street bailout, asking, "Is this the United States Congress or the board of directors of Goldman Sachs?"
Every year, nay, every term, there seems to be an affliction that spreads across campus like wildfire. I'm not talking about the infamous Dartmouth flu -- no, this is something far more serious. Common symptoms include curricula that include 10 or more books, over 100 pages of reading assigned between two consecutive classes and nightly groaning due to academic pressure, among other symptoms. This affliction is called a "reading course," and if you're like thousands of Dartmouth students, you might be at risk.
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Alliance, a group of eleven organizations working to improve locally directed healthcare, will change its name to the New England Alliance for Health. The group will also transition to a limited-liability company at the beginning of next year to eliminate the complications of the current legal-corporate structure and appeal to a more regional group of organizations, according to Jason Aldous, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center media relations manager. Aldous said he hopes the inclusion of "New England" in the title will attract organizations from outside the Alliance's New Hampshire-centered sphere. The new Alliance will have a "bare-bones" bureaucratic structure, which will allow it to operate more efficiently, he said. Currently, the Alliance's Board of Trustees must approve all initiatives, including budgets, major capital expansions and hiring of chief executives. Aldous said the process seemed obsolete, as the board rarely rejected a proposal. Patient care will not be effected and community members should not be concerned by the change, Aldous said.
Two Dartmouth medical research analysts recently commented on a new study that links a chemical used in plastic water bottles -- including discontinued Nalgene models -- to adverse health effects in people. The analysts said the study raises questions, but offers no answers as to whether the chemical is harmful.
Construction on Dartmouth's South Block project has finished, with the completion of the fifth, and final, building late last month. The development -- which includes shops, cafes, and residential apartments -- is part of the College's efforts to stimulate business in downtown Hanover.
With barely a month left until election day, four candidates vie to represent New Hampshire in the U.S. House of Representatives. Democratic incumbent Paul Hodes '72 faces Republican Jennifer Horn, a local radio personality, in the state's second Congressional district, which includes Hanover.
Zeta Psi fraternity, derecognized by the College in 2001, has started construction on its Webster Avenue house in preparations for potential re-recognition in fall 2009. Renovations to the fraternity's physical plant are one condition of its "dark period."
Dartmouth's presidential search committee has presented the criteria it will use to select the College's president, releasing a formal leadership statement on Tuesday night. The statement asserts that the next president must articulate a comprehensive vision for Dartmouth that would strengthen the academic reputation of the College and its professional schools, while building consensus among students, faculty and alumni.
Leaving the rain in Hanover behind for California sunshine, Dartmouth women's tennis player Molly Scott '11 could not enjoy the West Coast for long, as she lost her opening match Saturday in the prequalifying draw of the 2008 Riviera-Intercolleigate Tennis Association Women's All-American championship hosted by Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
Alex Abate '09 led the Big Green with a strong showing during Saturday's rain-shortened opening day, which tied him for fifth place with a one-under-par 71.
Kahn, who many consider the contemporary equivalent to Degas in pastel, spent the summer spread out across various locations on and around the Dartmouth campus.
Volumes upon volumes of literary criticism and biographies have been written about Robert Frost over the years, but none has tackled his intellect. None, that is, until Brian Hall's novel, "Fall of Frost" (2008).

Nina Maja Bergmar '11's "Peace, Love and Respect" (Sept. 29) is an exercise in self-righteous writing, succeeding only at browbeating and berating its audience into anything but agreement with the premises of the piece.
Upon arriving on campus for their DOC Trips, freshmen and parents are greeted by an unfamiliar sight. Spread across Robinson Hall lawn is chaos incarnate: loud music, fiery-haired demons dancing and prancing together like embers shooting from a bonfire and wide-eyed fellow freshmen aghast at the scene before them.
