DDS Detective: Balsamic vinegar & peaches

(10/31/12 9:30am)

Two summers ago, I tasted for the first time what would become my favorite sweet and savory combo since peanut butter and strawberry jelly: balsamic vinegar and peaches. It was a hot summer day in Hanover, and my housemates and I had finally decided to use the grill that we had — um — borrowed from a certain academic department. It was pretty simple: we sliced up some peaches, tossed them in balsamic vinegar and threw them on the grill. The peaches were messy, and the balsamic vinegar got all over our clothes, but the taste was pure bliss. I have not had the opportunity to grill peaches since that day, but I have developed what I think is the best way to recreate this delicious duo in DDS: Peach-Balsamic Salsa.

Daily Debriefing

(10/31/12 3:00am)

Contemporary film and literary portrayals of Greek and Roman mythological figures present distorted images and information, according to a Huffington Post article written by Dartmouth classics professor Pramit Chaudhuri. Although awareness of Greek and Roman mythology has increased, the success of books and movies by Rick Riordan, such as the "Percy Jackson" series, describes the contemporary adventures of teenage demigods inspired by inaccurate representations of ancient mythology, according to Chaudhuri. Modern retellings of myths about the Titans and Giants paint them as "monstrous threats to order and civilization" and favor mortal protagonists. Children who indulge in these contemporary versions of mythology that underline the creatures' negative qualities rather than powerful symbolism should be encouraged to learn the classic context for the "cartoonish" villains, Chaudhuri said.
