Right and "Right"

(11/18/10 4:00am)

Apparently words have more power than I thought. Last Saturday, I was hanging out with a group of poets visiting from Washington University who wanted to see a "Dartmouth party." A friend and I took them over to a fraternity that was hosting one. As soon as I entered the house, brothers began whispering to one another and pointing at me. I was in the basement for less than a minute before two brothers surrounded me.


Survey Says

If there is one thing that Dartmouth students are great at, it's knowing how to complain, loudly and often. Not that we're at any loss for things to complain about. We have cold winters, a sometimes unresponsive administration and an endless stream of pointless domestic drama. One fairly constant refrain that seems harder to justify, however, is that the quarter system is somehow more difficult than a semester system. The D-Plan, it is said, compresses semester courses and students' workloads rise accordingly.


Rec League Legends

(11/18/10 4:00am)

Rec League Nation the Hanukkah bush has appeared in the center of The Green, meaning Holiday time is here. It also marks the final Rec League Legends of the term, so please read this once, twice, maybe even thrice for us. We've had a good term and a good friendship, but this article really isn't about Tim "Randy" Connor or Jonathan "Rockets" Katz. It's about the athletesthe Floren-going, Muggle-fearing D-1 elites whose locker rooms we've pillaged, whose egos we've shattered and whose parents we've made giggle. And with our final and most festive article of the term, we gathered our favorite campus athletes, treated them to the Hop and interrogated them about thankfulness. It's the least we could do.



As Seen On

Del Toro the Mexican director best known for "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006) and "Hellboy" (2004) is teaming up with "Battlestar Galactica" executive producer David Eick to create a live-action version of "The Incredible Hulk" for ABC the first live-action Marvel Comics series since the late '70s, early '80s show of the same name. Don't worry: Lou Ferrigno isn't planning on reprising his famous role.



Daily Debriefing

(11/18/10 4:00am)

Fewer minority students, particularly blacks and Hispanics, are being admitted to elite colleges and universities, instead being sent to less competitive schools, according to a new study by University of Michigan researchers, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. This trend, which has resulted in wealthier and less diverse student bodies at top schools, coincides with an increase in the academic preparedness of members of minority groups. Increasing selectivity at elite schools, however, has outpaced the rise in minority students' qualifications. The study also found that colleges are giving increasing weight to applicants' extracurricular activities, without regard to race.
