Pro tip (whether you are at Collis Cafe or '53 Commons): put pineapples in your stir-fry. You are welcome. When I got up there, I managed to only get in a quick chat with Grace before she had to turn her attention to assist others with their stir-fry ... what n00bs. Just kidding! What really happened was I finally got up there, had a clean wok set atop the induction burner, and immediately squirted some oil into it — this is wrong. Don’t do this! Grace was quick to correct me. After receiving lessons on working the wok with Grace herself, I make a stir-fry faux pas right in front of her as soon as I step up to the plate? How embarrassing! My ancestors must be rolling in their graves. Dear readers, please learn from my mistake and take these extra pearls of wok wisdom to heart for stir-fry that’ll make even Collis Dave blush:

One of the biggest adjustments involved in being on one's own is learning to be in charge of one's own food intake. Instead of having a family dinner or a school lunch prepared for us, as many of us had growing up, we now have a variety of options available at every meal.
With the election just a few weeks away, internet political advertisements are out in full swing. It seems impossible to watch television or even enjoy music on YouTube without hearing a message about America's future from either presidential candidate. In particular, an advertisement that revolves around women's rights has been played quite often, claiming that President Barack Obama stands for women's rights. Naturally, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is the shining example of his claim.
Demonstrations in Kabul, Afghanistan, turned violent on Monday after President Hamid Karzai's decision to change the name of Kabul Education University to the Martyr of Peace Professor Burhanuddin Rabbani University, The New York Times reported. Supporters of Rabbani and the name change, some of whom appeared to have been transported to the rally in police cars, initiated the altercation with primarily student protesters who had been protesting peacefully for 17 days. The Kandahar International Airport and a street in Kabul were also renamed to commemorate Rabbani, a prominent civil war figure, for the one-year anniversary of his assassination on Sept. 21. Renaming the university stirred controversy because of Rabbani's minority racial ties, his political philosophy and his role in a previous attack on the university, according to The Times.

While every autumn brings a wave of new students to campus, Hanover also sees an influx of visitors seeking to admire the vibrant fall foliage. Known as "leaf peepers," these tourists armed with cameras and a love of natural scenery provide a temporary boost to local businesses and hotels during September and October.
Dartmouth's distributive course curriculum which requires students to complete at least one course in eight different broad educational categories encourages student exploration and exposure to hidden interests, according to students and deans. While these requirements are similar in scope to those of peer Ivy League institutions the requirements at times hinder students who must complete numerous prerequisites for their major while creating an environment where courses perceived to be easiest become the most popular, they said.
