Beechert: Slash the Staff

(11/03/15 12:02am)

Elite universities enjoy a certain privilege when compared to publicly traded companies and state-owned enterprises. Namely, Ivy League universities and their peers are not held accountable to the same external checks on decision-making that other sorts of institutions face. Public companies, whether they are active in the technology, financial or energy sector, have to answer to both customers and shareholders. Bodies that rely on government spending are — at least in theory — subject to taxpayer oversight through legislative action. If poor management leads to inefficiency and underperformance in either scenario, affected parties have recourse to boards or legislators who can exert influence and force reform. This is how organizations improve.

Men’s soccer seizes control of Ivy League with OT win

(11/02/15 11:30pm)

The men’s soccer team travelled to Cambridge, Massachusetts, this Saturday to take on Harvard University at Jones Field. After 98 scoreless minutes, Dartmouth (9-4-1, 5-0 Ivy) took the victory against the Crimson (7-6-2, 3-2 Ivy) when Amadu Kunateh ’19 headed in a corner kick from Justin Donawa ’19 to end the overtime period with a 1-0 win over the Crimson.

Men’s hockey drops two straight to No. 11 Harvard University

(11/02/15 11:30pm)

The men’s ice hockey team (0-2, 0-2 ECAC) dropped its two season-opening games against no. 11 Harvard University over the weekend, losing 7-0 at home on Saturday night and 5-2 at Harvard on Sunday night. Harvard (2-0, 2-0 ECAC) was powered primarily by a dynamite offense — shaping up to be one of the top packs of forwards in the NCAA — and managed to keep the Big Green offense in check by taking away its centering pass option and keeping Dartmouth off balance in the paint.

College announces details of "Moving Dartmouth Forward" residential communities

(11/02/15 6:08pm)

Six new residential communities based in current residence halls will begin housing students next fall, the College announced in a press release on Monday. Students graduating later than June 2016 will be randomly assigned into one of the communities in February and will have the chance to request up to five students they would like to be in their house next month. Members of the Class of 2020 will be assigned houses next July when they are given room assignments.

FoCo Joe: PB & J Cannoli

(11/02/15 5:04pm)

I was in a bit of a scramble this week. After a jam-packed weekend, I could not afford to spend my Sunday evenings in FoCo, as I usually do. I had made plans to order in Boloco with my friend instead. I know – WHO AM I AND WHAT HAVE I BECOME. But alas, I cannot let my dear readers down, my faithful followers who are already dealing with reading my column only every other week.

Chews Wisely: Salt Hill Pub

(11/02/15 4:02pm)

First of all, I’d like to apologize for and explain the lack of a column last week. I had the misfortune of coming down with a stomach bug for the better part of four days, which denied me my favorite hobby: eating. I lost roughly 15 pounds and experienced severe Collis stir-fry withdrawal. Nevertheless, after four days, I willed myself out of bed, down the stairs and across the 50 feet to Foco. After a few exploratory meals, I was ready to return to my solemn duty as Dartbeat columnist.

19 Thoughts I Had During the Dartmouth vs. Harvard Football Game

(11/02/15 2:10pm)

With both teams 3-0 in the Ivy League, the Big Green took on the Harvard Crimson Friday night in Cambridge for a match that likely determined the conference champion. Most people can agree that watching the game on TV or catching up with the highlights is not the same as being there in real-time. It’s a full experience that’s defined by the little things. To help you feel like you were there, Dartbeat has created a narration of that experience (complete with GIFs, of course). Before the Game

Sonic Space: Melting

(11/02/15 1:31pm)

The weather is creeping toward frightful, but right now it’s mostly just cozy. Is there anything that cold, grey days lend themselves to better than large mugs of hot chocolate and mountains of blankets? Unfortunately, cozy weather coincides with piles of work, and finding music that both encompasses the coziness of the fall and motivates me to get work done is hard to find. In times like these, I turn mostly to female vocals layered over complex and pulsating beats. So, this is a playlist my friend put together, and I’m sharing it with all of you. Please listen responsibly.

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders talks policy in Lebanon

(11/02/15 2:07am)

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) drew a crowd of over 1,000 — including Upper Valley residents and Dartmouth students — at a speech on Friday at Lebanon High School. Sanders discussed income inequality, institutional racism, campaign finance reform and numerous social issues in his nearly two-hour speaking engagement.

Pymetrics aims to help students determine strengths

(11/02/15 1:46am)

The first thing that one encounters upon making an account for pymetrics is a series of games. One of them, called “Keypresses,” is — as the name suggests — all about pressing a key as fast as you can for a few seconds. This game, it turns out, is a measure of one’s processing speed, as well as one’s impulsiveness or deliberateness when reacting to new information.
