Daily Debriefing

(11/21/08 9:42am)

Tennessee State University and Hampton University have blocked the web site from campus web servers, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported Thursday. The site allows users to anonymously post messages about peers and other campus-related topics, and messages often malign students' sexual behavior, sexual orientation and character, according to the Chronicle. Though Tennessee State has never before blocked a web site, Michael Freeman, vice president for student affairs at the university, told The Chronicle that in "a post-Virginia Tech environment," universities need to be more careful. Matt Ivester, the founder of JuicyCampus, responded by comparing Tennessee State's action to China's censorship of its online networks, according to the Chronicle, and said that the university was infringing on students' right to free speech. Dartmouth is one of over 500 colleges and universities with discussion forums on the web site, although the site has no official affiliations with any of the schools.

Verbum Ultimum: The Anonymous Agenda

(11/21/08 9:32am)

On Nov. 9, a campus organization called The Honor Education Committee sent a mass-Blitz with the subject line "Free Donuts in Novak! [sic]," inviting students to "learn how it has become easier for you to uphold the Honor Principle with its new ANONYMOUS online reporting system!" In addition to being taken aback by the cavalier nature of the e-mail given the grave consequences that accompany Honor Principle violations at Dartmouth, we were left wondering, what, exactly, the Honor Education Committee does, what its "new" anonymous reporting feature entails, and why had we never heard of either.

"Allegedly," or at least, according to some busty blonde anchorwoman, our country is in the depths of some sort of economic crisis. Crisis, I tell you! A heavy fog of financial gloom has settled over Wall Street, and the panic of an imminent market apocalypse is creeping across the nation. Everyone is freaking the eff out.

Point: Dartmouth is Flair

(11/21/08 9:27am)

While attempting to define the word "flair," I found that Urban Dictionary is plagued with references to the cult classic "Office Space"(1999), which, according to many internet sources, first introduced the phrase "flair" into mainstream culture. Flair is, according to the film, the term used for the buttons and various paraphernalia worn (and hated) by chain restaurant employees:
