A study, to be published in the upcoming issue of the Journal of Population Economics, sheds new light on whether full-time college students who work perform better than those who do not work while in school, Inside Higher Ed reported Oct. 8. The study took cross-sectional data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, finding that students in four-year colleges who work 20 hours or less per week perform better academically in comparison to students who work more than 20 hours and those who do not work, according to Inside Higher Ed. One of the study's authors, Charlene Kalenkoski, told Inside Higher Ed that the lack of a relationship between parents' financial contributions and student work schedules suggests that students are working to raise money for non-tuition-related expenses.

First, I doubt any student was "left reeling" by Scherr's departure. Who even knows what the Provost does? That said, change is needed the Wright administration was flawed. I certainly hope Kim will lead us in the right direction, but at any rate, positions cannot be left unfilled in this critical time. Phil Aubart '10
On Friday, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded President Barack Obama one of the world's highest and most distinguished honors, the Nobel Prize for Peace. The roster of Nobel Laureates includes some of the greatest humanitarians and human rights advocates in the history of mankind. As one works his way through the names, pausing at such luminaries as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Lech Walesa, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela, it becomes strikingly clear that President Obama's resume is absurdly thin by comparison. All conscientious citizens of the world, regardless of ideology, should hope the President realizes his monumental potential to become the sort of transformative, life-saving figure worthy of this honor. But for now, his inclusion reeks of the sort of tone-deaf political showmanship that could ultimately cheapen one of the world's most honorable institutions. Rather than naively playing the pawn of Oslo's broader agenda, Obama should have politely declined the award, pledging to actualize his global vision before accepting any further plaudits.

Fans who made their way to Memorial Field for the first two games of the 2009 football season may have felt that something was missing. Although across the country on Saturdays this fall, a similar scene played out: fans watched as their team battled against the opposition throughout two 15-minute quarters, and at halftime, listened to the sounds of brass and woodwind as their school's marching band takes the field. At Dartmouth, something has been different.
A number of familiar obstacles stand between Mark Bellison (writer-director Ricky Gervais) and his beautiful date, Anna McDoogles, (Jennifer Garner) in the first scene of "The Invention of Lying" (2009). They include Mark's lack of financial assets, his soon-to-be lack of employment, his lack of any apparent talent that could remedy those situations and the obstacle that proves most difficult to overcome his chubby, snub-nosed exterior.
