Daily Debriefing

(11/28/11 4:00am)

The suicide of Bradley Ginsburg, a member of Cornell University's class of 2013, prompted Ginsberg's father to sue Cornell, several university administrators and the city of Ithaca, N.Y., The Cornell Daily Sun reported Friday. Although the bridge where the suicide occurred is owned by the city, the student's father, Howard Ginsburg, said the university could have done more to prevent his son's death. Ginsburg's death and similar incidents could have been prevented if the university had made mental health a larger priority and raised more awareness of the three student suicides that occurred in 2009, Howard Ginsburg said in the lawsuit he filed on Nov. 21. Since Ginsburg's death, Cornell has installed fences and 24-hour guards at the site of the bridge. The university expects that the case will be dismissed, a Cornell spokesperson said in an interview with the Ithaca Journal.

A "pioneer factor" called PBX1 may help scientists understand the causes of breast cancer's resistance to estrogen treatment and help develop new strategies for identifying aggressive tumors, according to a study by researchers at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The research, which was conducted in the Dartmouth Medical School professor Mathieu Lupien's lab, was published in the open source journal Public Library of Science Genetics on Nov. 17.

Dartmouth students marathon for a cause

(11/27/11 8:06pm)

  Feel­ing a lit­tle bloated after Thanks­giv­ing feasts? If you’re think­ing about run­ning off the hol­i­day weight over the next few weeks this isn’t a bad time to start train­ing for next year’s NYC Marathon. You can look to Dart­mouth stu­dents Annie Op­pen­heim, Au­drey Sher­man, and Katie Rohn for tips on the race – all three ran the 26 mile race through Team for Kids ear­lier this month. The or­ga­ni­za­tion has brought health and fit­ness pro­grams to 100,000 chil­dren in over 400 schools across the US and Africa, ac­cord­ing to their site. To date they have raised over $16 mil­lion for their cause. Ac­cord­ing to the marathon trio, train­ing was en­joy­able be­cause they had the op­por­tu­nity to go on runs through­out the area (which, need­less to say, in­cluded beau­ti­ful scenery) and to spend time to­gether wile work­ing out. After four hours and six min­utes of run­ning and months of train­ing, the three of them crossed the fin­ish line feel­ing up­lifted and ac­com­plished; an ideal end to such a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
