Hockey underperforms in holiday set, continuing slide

(11/29/11 4:00am)

The Dartmouth men's hockey team led 3-2 early in the third period of its game against the University of Vermont on Sunday afternoon, but UVM (3-8-1, 1-6-1 Hockey East) notched three late goals to eliminate the advantage and earn a 5-3 non-conference win over the Big Green. The Big Green (4-5-1, 3-3-1 ECAC) suffered the loss in Burlington, Vt., after a 3-3 overtime stalemate in Hanover against Harvard University on Friday.

Rubin: A Responsibility to Lead

(11/29/11 4:00am)

The United States went to war in the Middle East more than a decade ago, a fact that has since been an unchanging factor in our generation's lives. However, with President Barack Obama announcing that the U.S. military presence in Iraq will officially end by Dec. 31, the impending hand-over of responsibility to the Afghan Security Forces and the end of NATO operations in Libya, we must consider what our role will be in the impending peace. There are still many issues facing the world that require some form of international leadership that only the United States can provide. Therefore, the call by some of the Republican presidential contenders to adopt a near-isolationist stance is ill-advised and harmful. Given the lack of an alternative country to take an active leadership role in addressing major global issues, the United States must maintain its military and international commitments and its dedication to promoting peace.

Mechanicals have found success in minimalist Shakespeare

(11/29/11 4:00am)

Walking back from class on a cool fall day in 2008 on the theater Foreign Study Program in London, Chiara Klein '10, Jay Ben Markson '10 and David Mavricos '10 felt inspired. They had just read a particularly boring section of William Shakespeare's "Henry VI" in their Shakespearean Texts class, but had seen the words come to life, unfettered by props or costumes and despite the perception that Shakespeare is inaccessible to a modern audience.

Daily Debriefing

(11/29/11 4:00am)

The causes of the Nov. 19 car crash during the Harvard-Yale football game tailgate are still under investigation by the New Haven Police Department, the Yale Daily News reported Monday. A U-Haul carrying kegs of beer and driven by a member of the Yale class of 2013 swerved off path, killing one person and injuring two others during the tailgate. The legal repercussions for the driver, Brendan Ross, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, are still uncertain, as Ross passed a sobriety test shortly after the crash, according to the News. Ross and his defense attorney claim that the crash occurred due to a vehicle malfunction. The U-Haul vehicle is being held by the police until tests determine the validity of this claim. If a vehicle malfunction can be proved, Ross' legal culpability may be lessened and the U-Haul company may be liable, the News reported.

Upgrades planned for Wheelock St. bus stop

(11/29/11 4:00am)

The Town of Hanover is in the preliminary stages of planning the construction of a "transportation hub" outside of the Hanover Inn, Hanover Town Manager Julia Griffin said in an interview with The Dartmouth. A tentative vision for the hub includes a larger bus stop and seating area, a raised crosswalk in the middle of Wheelock Street and a "temperature-controlled" building in which passengers will be able to wait for their buses and purchase tickets, Griffin said.

Aires place second in 'Sing Off'

(11/29/11 4:00am)

The Aires exited the stage after sharing handshakes and hugs with the winners, looking dressed for the occasion in navy suits. The Aires performed a handful of songs during the live two-hour finale, including a rendition of "Not the Same" by celebrity judge and singer-songwriter Ben Folds, accompanied by Folds himself. Throughout the suspenseful and high-energy program, the Dartmouth crowd erupted into cheers after every Aires performance but groaned each time Lachey said "When we come back" as the show switched to commercial break.

Wheatley: A Little Holiday Magic

(11/28/11 4:00am)

About two weeks ago, long before cable news networks started squawking about "holiday trees" and Dirt Cowboy stocked up on eggnog, this holiday season's Christmas tree was planted in middle of the Green. It seemed to appear earlier than last year, and I can't help but notice its deteriorating health its inner branches are already becoming skeletal. I just hope that it survives through the annual Hanover Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 2. It is a local tradition that certainly doesn't match the hype of our major celebration weekends, but in spite of looming exams and final papers, more students should take a 20-minute study break and stop by this year's ceremony. I suspect that they will be surprised at what they find.

Los Campesinos! hones angst in fourth album

(11/28/11 4:00am)

As a whole, "Hello Sadness" forms a complete narrative, a musical monument to frontman Gareth Campesinos' failed relationship. Despite the overplayed subject of lost love, Los Campesinos! does not passively accept the paradigms for heartbreak albums set by such releases as Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks," Beck's "Sea Change" or even Bon Iver's "For Emma, Forever Ago." Instead, "Hello Sadness" tracks Campesinos' relationship with all the melodramatic hyperbole that could only be borne of the irrational histrionics of a lovelorn griever.

Rockapellas continue to examine social justice through song

(11/28/11 4:00am)

Dartmouth students know how to turn the sting of rejection into something powerful, creative and positive just ask Stephanie Wood-Garnett '92, one of two original founders of the Dartmouth Rockapellas. In Fall 1988, Wood-Garnett and Debbie Gartner '92 founded the Rockapellas, an all-female a cappella group devoted to sharing a love of singing and examining issues of social justice through song.
