Students express mixed opinions regarding class rings

(10/04/12 2:00am)

The ring committee, a subset of the 2013 Class Council, manages the selection, advertisement and marketing of the rings, according to Senior Class Council President George Travers '13. The committee is also responsible for negotiating prices with Balfour, the company chosen and contracted by the College to make and distribute the rings. In previous years, the College has worked with Jostens but decided to switch to Balfour because it offers better quality products at lower prices, according Travers.

(10/04/12 2:00am)

The book, "Party at the End of the World," chronicles Lohse's time at the College, including his arrest for cocaine possession and witness tampering in 2010 and the hazing he claims to have endured as a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.





The Off-Campus Kitchen: Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

(10/03/12 10:00am)

Outdoor farmer’s market season is winding down. This is the equivalent of snatching crack away from a toddler — me, of course, being the toddler. In the Bay Area, we have outdoor farmer’s markets at least four days a week, most of which run year-round. For me, the worst part of returning to Hanoveris that suddenly all the produce labeled “California-grown” ceases to be virtuously local, and instead becomes Bad and Unseasonal. It’s traumatic.



Fashion Tips for Men, by Men

(10/03/12 7:00am)

1) Jeans are staple apparel for any college student, but I also like brown or darker tan colored khakis as they provide a more mature look for the seemingly nonchalant striver. Dockers D1 Slim Fit, similar to the Levi’s 514s, is my choice for the most affordable, versatile pair. I have personally found the Levi’s 514 Slim Straight pants to be the most comfortable and best fitting option, and I encourage anyone with a tight budget to seriously consider making these the main part of your outfit. For jeans and fit, I like to refer to Levi’s style numbering for comparisons, although others might have a favorite brand or prefer different, more suitable sizing alternatives. For most people, the Skinny 511s, Slim 513s, and 514s are the only jeans and pants that could give a flattering look. Even as a skinny guy, I found the 511s fit a little bit too tightly around the legs. Only the 511 pants have that fashionable form to them, whereas the 511 jeans made me look like a hipster from SoHo. The 514s boast superior comfort while still retaining a very decent cut, and I highly recommend them if you want a safe pick in your online shopping.

Electronic med. billing may inflate payments

(10/03/12 2:00am)

Although former President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama have granted tens of billions of dollars in federal subsidies to hospitals that implement electronic medical records to increase hospital efficiency and patient safety, these records may be contributing to increased billings, according to Medicare data analyzed by The New York Times. While the Justice Department and other federal regulatory agencies are investigating instances of potential fraud, analysts at the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care a research group run through The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice that analyzes variations in health care delivery say that this correlation likely reflects underlying flaws in Medicare's fee-for-service payment system.
