Specialized tours hit new stops

(10/13/14 10:42pm)

Almost 400 visitors crossed the Green this weekend during the last of three “fall information days” run by the admissions office. While a similar day-long program — which includes faculty presentations, a College-sponsored lunch with current students and specialized tour routes in the afternoon — launched this summer under the name “faculty Friday,” organizers added an admissions and financial aid question-and-answer session this term.

Black Ivy Coalition calls for awareness, policy shifts

(10/13/14 10:40pm)

One week after Darren Wilson, a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, students at Yale University created a Facebook chat to talk about what had happened. Over the next several days, the chat grew, as students invited anyone they thought might be interested in contributing to the conversation. Out of this online group formed the Black Ivy Coalition, a group of 16 black Ivy League student leaders — two per school — dedicated to changing a culture they say led to the death of Brown and others like him.

New Hampshire nabs top spot in OECD ranking

(10/13/14 10:40pm)

New Hampshire ranks highest in the nation for quality of the life, according to a report released last week by the Office of Economic Cooperation and Development. The study, “How’s Life in Your Region? Measuring Regional and Local Well-Being for Policy Making,” scored all 50 states and Washington, D.C., along with more than 300 other regions across the OECD’s 34 member nations. Regions were evaluated in nine categories: health, safety, housing, access to broadband, civic engagement, education, jobs, environment and income.

Parajuli: The Republican Diet

(10/13/14 10:37pm)

Political scientists are starting to find that the angry, threatened, gun-clinging Republican stereotype might run deeper than the news. To cite just a few recent studies, in 2006 John T. Jost found that conservatives suffer from “chronically elevated levels of threat” and are “more likely than liberals to perceive the world as a dangerous place,” while in 2014 John R. Hibbing found that “conservatives tend to register greater physiological responses to negative stimuli.” The link works the other way, too. Heightened insecurity seems to increases the popularity of conservatism, as seen in its rise in the U.S. after 9/11. Why are Republicans so afraid? Dietary differences and the hormone cortisol may provide an answer.

Hsu: Keep It Local

(10/13/14 10:36pm)

I come from a suburban, middle class town in central New Jersey, where industry giants like Costco and Kohl’s dominate over local boutiques and farmer’s markets. It seems like every other day an independent store hangs a dismal “going out of business” sign in its window. Living in Hanover, where local produce and indie stores have an overwhelming presence, has shown me that there is a better way of living life — rather than dumping money into monopolizing chain companies, you can build a better future by investing in independent businesses.

WWI poster show explores the 'unseen'

(10/13/14 10:35pm)

Despite Baker Library’s notorious bustle, one cannot help but stop and notice the flashy graphics of World War I posters featured in glass cases along the entrance lobby’s walls. Behind the glass pane, a war-torn figure stands defiant amidst the blaze of a flaming battlefield. In another image, a soldier steps over the corpse of a fallen enemy. Above him, two words capture his unbroken will: “Come On!”
