Toe to Toe: Karr Vs. Schmidley (Karr)

(09/29/08 1:04pm)

Trying to pick college football's national champion after five weeks of play is similar to predicting today the high temperature for a September weekend in Hanover. I can say whatever I'd like, but chances are I'm going to be wrong. But we learned plenty from this past week's college football results, and so I'm feeling confident, despite having my column and prediction next to the mighty Schmidley. Before we dive into my selection for this year's college football national champion, let's list a few givens:


Toe to Toe: Karr Vs. Schmidley (Schmidley)

(09/29/08 1:03pm)

Another college football season, another year of intense unpredictability and confusion in the polls? It's amazing to think, after witnessing the singularity of last year's season relative to past seasons in this respect, that we could be in store for a repeat of 2007, but what's to say it isn't going to happen based on the action so far? Top teams have been falling at a similar rate, and no team is even close to distinguishing themselves enough to be labeled a "sure bet" for the title game. With that said, Ryan and I thought a wild stab at predicting this year's title winner would be fun. Here's my run down:

'Musclebound' probes taboo, explores male eating disorders

(09/29/08 12:48pm)

"Musclebound," a one-man multimedia play, will bring the audience in Collis Common Ground into the not-often-revealed and frightening world of male physical self-improvement. The show is co-sponsored by, among others, College Health Services, Eating Disorder Peer Advisors, Dartmouth Athletics, Chi Gamma Epsilon, Alpha Delta, Psi Upsilon and Chi Heorot. It centers around the lives of three men who all have different body image issues and who all hide their problems from the world around them. Written and performed by Michael Feldman and directed and edited by Adam M. Laupus, the 90-minute performance supplements the three main stories with real-life interviews with men on the subject of their body image as well as television clips from popular culture that shape our feelings about our bodies.


'Choke' revolts, grates, exaggerates and still appeals

(09/29/08 12:47pm)

"Choke" is a charming little movie, but appreciating it requires an enthusiastic appetite for sleaze. Here is a film made in the spirit of cheerful depravity, a comedy that manages to cram an endless parade of debauched behavior into a mere 90 minutes of screen time. Sitting through it is like listening to a dirty joke that goes on forever; there's no punch line to speak of, just an endless tirade of filth.


Daily Debriefing

(09/29/08 12:41pm)

Hanover Town Manager Julia Griffin said she was not concerned about a recent federal civil-rights lawsuit that could expose the town to potential liability in a case involving a 2006 regional SWAT team raid, The Valley News reported last Friday. The incident involved Hanover Police Sgt. Brad Sargent and Master Patrol Officer Richard Paulsen, who were responding to a call for service of an arrest warrant for Michael Rothman in Bristol, N.H. Griffin said it is still unknown if there was any merit to the lawsuit involving accusations of unreasonable search and seizure and excessive force. In addition, both officers were insured for up to $2 million of liability. Two other police officers from the Upper Valley -- one from Enfield and one from Lyme -- are among the 16 facing the lawsuit.



Buckey to test program for astronauts

(09/29/08 12:39pm)

Dartmouth Medical School professor Jay Buckey, along with a team of scientists and researchers, will soon begin clinical trials to test a new computer program that would help treat depression in astronauts on long space flights. The program, developed by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, uses an interactive, multi-media approach that would allow astronauts to self-diagnose and self-treat psychological problems.
