Soccer clinches second at the last second

(11/12/12 4:00am)

With 20 seconds remaining in the first period of the golden goal extra time, Dartmouth had a corner kick but seemed to be heading toward another period of extra time. A cross from midfielder Kevin Dzierzawski '13 landed in the box, ricocheting off players from both teams. As the clock ticked down to zero, Skelly controlled the ball and slammed it into the left side of the net past the hands of goalkeeper Sam Kernan-Schloss mid-dive, marking his first goal of the season.

What NOT to Watch For

Vince Marriott: The NHL. The status of the labor negotiations never seems to improve, and time keeps on ticking. The recent leak of confidential documents detailing labor talks and the fact the two sides only met for an hour on Sunday leads me to believe that there won't be a pro hockey season this year. The negotiation process, however, has received more media attention than a regular hockey season ever would, so at least hockey is getting some publicity. Something else not to watch for is another Sports Weekly edited by us. It's been real guys, and keep an eye out for the next generation of sports editors taking over in the winter.

Sellers: A Sex Ed Reality Check

(11/12/12 4:00am)

We all know that teen pregnancy is a problem. But for most of us, it is a far-off threat, one that is confined to the glow of MTV's "Teen Mom" on Tuesday nights. The idea of being a mother or father at this point in life or earlier is, for many of us, a distant concern. My typical reaction when Facebook shows me yet another girl from my high school sporting a baby bump is either a sigh or a passing thought of condolence. Personally, it is difficult to imagine toting around a crying, miniature me on my hip, especially since I find it hard enough to take care of myself each day. However, with recent attacks on Planned Parenthood and its contraceptive services and the prevalence of abstinence-only sex education in public schools, my high school classmates' situations and the country's financial concerns are inextricably linked.

Daily Debriefing

(11/12/12 4:00am)

Students in Women's and Gender Studies 80, "Feminist Theory and Methodology," posted a petition online over the weekend conveying their frustration with what they perceive to be the College's anti-feminist culture. The petition advocates for a culture and community at Dartmouth that promotes "integrity, responsibility and consideration." The petition also argues that the College has resisted the need for a cohesive community and does not uphold the "Principle of Community," which discourages sexism, racism, homophobia, prejudice and violence. Students at the College "rape, are raped and are taught to accept that sexual violence is a facet of our campus," according to the petition. To create a greater sense of community at the College, the petition suggests that the administration institute a required sex and sexuality seminar for all first-year students, renovate all social spaces to make them safer environments and enforce zero-tolerance violence policies. As of press time, approximately 560 people had signed the petition. Members of the class will present their proposals to senior administrators on Monday.

Andrew Pham: A lot of the hype on the Internet these past 48 hours has been about Nate Silver and his perfect prediction of the Electoral College results, but Sam Wang of Princeton nailed the popular vote and predicted just as well as Silver did. Do you have any thoughts on either of them?
