(11/22/10 4:00am)

Each year, Dartmouth faculty members work to update their curricula, according to College faculty members interviewed by The Dartmouth, in line with a national trend among faculty at public and private universities, according to a survey released Nov. 6 by the Bringing Theory to Practice program. The survey found that professors implement revisions ranging from minor changes in course readings to larger changes in teaching approaches at least once per year.

Playing Chicken with the Future

(11/22/10 4:00am)

The United States federal government is headed for a fiscal train wreck. It has made significant spending commitments primarily on defense, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid but does not have a tax system that will produce enough revenue to meet these commitments in the future. Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, the co-chairs of President Barack Obama's Deficit-Reduction Commission, recently released a proposal that would avert fiscal catastrophe. Both political parties have rejected this plan. Unfortunately, neither party has been honest about what they would do instead.

Wrong and "Wrong"

(11/22/10 4:00am)

In responding to the two recent columns by Jordan Osserman '11, Intra-Fraternity Council President Tyler Brace '11 wrote, "[Osserman] cannot understand that wearing a uniform or carrying a lunchbox surely a traumatizing and dehumanizing experience for all is actually a mark of honor for pledges who choose to demonstrate their pride in becoming a part of something greater than themselves," ("Right' and Wrong," Nov. 19).

Briefly Noted

Ethan Shaw '12, Phil Royer '13 and Tom Robbins '11 were named to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Region runners list last Monday. They qualified for the award by finishing in the top 25 of the NCAA Regional Championships meet that took place on Nov. 13. At the meet, Shaw led all members of the Dartmouth squad by finishing in 18th place. Royer and Robbins followed close behind, finishing in 19th and 24th, respectively. Both Shaw and Robbins earned the award last year as well. The team failed to qualify for the National meet, however, as it finished fourth overall at Regionals, and only the top two teams receive an automatic bid.
