Compromising Health Care

(11/30/09 4:00am)

It is hard to imagine from within the Dartmouth Bubble, but when we (hopefully) graduate in the coming years, the current health care debate in Congress could have a vast impact on our lives. As The Dartmouth reported two weeks ago, young people, new to the workforce and post-Bubble life, are the most likely to be uninsured and would be a group to whom the proposed public option or government subsidized healthcare might be particularly attractive ("House bill could help recent grads," Nov. 18).

Terrorizing Islam

(11/30/09 4:00am)

In the wake of the tragic shootings at Fort Hood, the national community has gathered to mourn the loss of 13 Americans. As a precaution, the Department of Homeland Security warned the Muslim-American community of the potential backlash from those who would blame them. At the same time, the media immediately sensationalized Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's Islamic faith and triggered a new wave of fear of the religion.

The No. 10 Harvard men's soccer team bowed out of the NCAA tournament in the Sweet Sixteen after suffering a 2-0 loss to the University of Maryland on Sunday. The Ivy League champions earned a first-round bye and moved past the second round after defeating Monmouth University, 3-0. The Crimson was the only Ivy League team to make it this far into this year's tournament, as Dartmouth crashed out in the second period of overtime in the first round to Boston College, 2-1, Princeton fell in the first round to Bucknell University, 1-0, and Brown was stopped in the second round after a 2-0 loss to the University of North Carolina.

Daily Debriefing

(11/24/09 4:00am)

The U.S. Department of Education is investigating complaints of discrimination against female cadets at the state-run Virginia Military Institute, according to The Boston Globe. Twelve years after women won the right to attend the institution, federal investigators are examining accusations that the institution's policies are sexist. An Education Department complaint filed in June 2008, for example, alleges that language used about women in the barracks reflects a derogatory attitude and hostility towards female cadets. The department is also investigating VMI promotion policies. Although female students still represent only a small fraction of the population at the institute, applications from women have doubled over the past six years, and many female cadets told The Globe they were surprised to hear of the complaints.
