Murphy: The Grass is Always Greener

(11/30/11 4:00am)

A Dartmouth professor recently told a colleague: "Everything I teach my undergrads will be obsolete in 10 years." He attempted to introduce his undergraduate students to the frontiers of research in his own special field and those frontiers are constantly moving. No doubt we are all tempted to teach our own research fields and try to introduce our students to the issues and questions that we find so exciting. And there is no doubt that our students often enjoy feeling like participants in creating new knowledge.

Batchelor: Wake Up, N00bs

(11/30/11 4:00am)

The internet is in danger. Actually though.Under the terms of two recently introduced companion bills, the Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act, the internet as we know it could come to an end. I'm not being hyperbolic as observers from Silicon Valley to Wall Street have noted, the vague, misguided provisions of these proposals may give rise to a radically new authoritarian internet where government blacklists reign and the slightest misstep could permanently undercut or shutdown the websites you love. Considering the practical, legal and ideological concerns presented by these two bills, it is essential that Dartmouth students and people everywhere actively urge our lawmakers to reconsider.

Daily Debriefing

(11/30/11 4:00am)

Occupy Harvard and Occupy Boston protestors joined together to rally against a Goldman Sachs recruiting session hosted by Harvard University's Career Services on Monday afternoon, The Harvard Crimson reported. Of the 50 protesters who initially gathered for a "Rally to Defend Freedom of Speech," approximately half split off to interrupt the recruiting event. Harvard police officers and Career Services officials denied the protesters entry to the event, citing that the protestors attempting to enter lacked resumes, were not appropriately dressed and would have disrupted the recruiting session since it had already begun, according to The Crimson. Harvard Career Services Director Robin Mount said that while she respected the Occupy Harvard movement, she also respected students' right to search for jobs, The Crimson reported. Monday's rally, which focused on national politics and aimed to demonstrate solidarity with the broader Occupy movement, differed from the majority of Occupy Harvard events which have concentrated on internal university issues, according to The Crimson.
