Daily Debriefing

(11/09/12 4:00am)

California residents voted against a $6-billion cut to public education spending and granted Democrats a supermajority in both houses of the state legislature in Tuesday's election, Inside Higher Ed reported. Proposition 30, a sales and income tax increase initiative projected to raise $34 billion in new revenue over the next seven years, passed with 54 percent of the vote. While the tax hike prevents further cuts to the University of California and California State University systems this year, Proposition 30 is expected to provide long-term stabilization as opposed to radical transformation of California's educational system, according to Inside Higher Ed. With a democratic supermajority in the state legislature for the first time since 1933, Democrats will not need Republican support to bypass certain legislative actions and overrule vetoes by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.

She recounts administrative failure to properly deal with her case and anecdotal reflections on her personal journey. But her story holds more weight than a mere personal account of injustice it serves as a cautionary tale that is relevant to us at Dartmouth about the dangers of victim-blaming in cases of sexual assault.

Much to His Chagrin

Much to my chagrin, I have had to wait until my senior year to witness the talents of Michael Reilly '12 and Ryan McManus '15. The two men leading Dartmouth's receiving corps didn't see much action until this season, but their dual breakout was worth the wait. Both Reilly and McManus have surpassed the 500 receiving yards mark after last week's win against Cornell, and McManus even caught the attention of the folks at ESPN when he snagged a spot on SportsCenter's "Top 10." The tandem is characterized by balanced success, but not all stories are so equitable.
