Doctors at the hospital videoconferenced with stroke specialists participating in the new Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Mayo Clinic joint telestroke program, who assessed the patient, looked at a CAT scan of her brain and recommended a clot-busting drug. Within an hour after being administered the drug, the patient was able to move the left side of her body.
An analysis conducted by the Institute of International Education in conjunction with the State Department found that a record number of international students came to study in the United States this year, up 7 percent from last year, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. Even with this increase, the total number of international students in the U.S. represents less than 4 percent of the total student population. Among the countries sending students to the U.S., China, India, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Canada lead the way, with China alone sending 235,000 students to the University of Southern California, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Purdue University, New York University and Columbia University enrolled the most international students.

Who decides whether an activity meets the criteria to be called a sport or if it’s fated to be designated as a hobby? ESPN devotes hours of afternoon programming almost every day to poker. Is poker really a sport? One of the most popularly debated “sports” is cheerleading. Dartmouth recognizes competitive cheerleading, but it continues to get a bad rap.
A common cliche is that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The rollout of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, is the latest episode in a long-running epic in which good intentions are pitted against harsh reality. A bill designed to increase the number of insured Americans has resulted in thousands of people having their health insurance policies canceled — so many that President Obama gave a speech apologizing to them.
We all need sleep. Period. There is no getting around that basic biological fact; no amount of willpower that will make repeated all-nighters bearable or viable. Experts agree that adults our age need at least seven to eight hours of sleep per night. Habitual sleep deprivation results in more stress, a weakened immune system, abnormal weight gain or loss, increased anxiety and depressive behavior — not to mention overall poorer academic performance. Those all-nighters are not only unhealthy but ineffective in the long run. Although this information is widely known, it seems that sleep deprivation and its consequences continue to be harmfully normalized on college campuses.

University officials did not indicate whether or not this would result in a tuition increase next year.
