Milo Yiannopoulos brings conservative university tour to Dartmouth

(11/03/16 4:35am)

Milo Yiannopoulos, a technology editor for Breitbart News and conservative speaker whose appearances have been cancelled by other universities citing concerns over a hostile environment and safety, spoke to a Cook Auditorium on Tuesday as part of a stop on his tour. Cosponsored by the College Libertarians and The Dartmouth Review, the lecture was titled “In Defense of Hazing.”

Homecoming bonfire expected to have exceeded budget

(11/03/16 4:29am)

The total cost for this year’s Homecoming weekend bonfire will likely go over budget, said Eric Ramsey, the Homecoming and bonfire committee chair. Ramsey, who is also the associate dean for student life, attributed this increase in spending to the hiring of third-party security and variable building costs, such as scaffolding and timber, that may increase year to year.

Perez: Once Upon a Political Meme

(11/03/16 4:15am)

In less than a week, voters will head to the polls to elect the next President of the United States and leader of the free world. Halloween may have been spooky, but for many the scare factor will increase exponentially on Nov. 8. Indeed, entrusting either a misogynist Muppet or a sleazy career politician with the nuclear codes is enough to give anyone nightmares, myself included. I am disappointed with our options on both sides of the aisle. In a country of over 300 million people, I am aghast that we’ve somehow narrowed it down to Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

Coppola: Globalization is on the Ballot

(11/03/16 4:15am)

Historical elections will take place this month, not only in the United States. In France, Les Républicains will choose the candidate to represent them in the 2017 presidential election. Barring any surprises, this candidate will likely be the next French president, especially considering the catastrophic ratings of current President François Hollande of the French Socialist Party and the fact that Marine Le Penn of the National Front’s extremism makes it difficult for her to win a general election. In Italy, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has called for a constitutional referendum, which has been fiercely opposed by the Populist Party. The results of this referendum will decide the fate of his government. Since it is currently one of the few moderate and seemingly stable governments in Europe, a chaotic Italy, especially after the Brexit vote in Great Britain, could lead to increasing instability. And in the U.S. our presidential election is on Nov. 8.

Stanescu-Bellu: Death to Attack Ads

(11/03/16 4:15am)

For the last few weeks, I have been unable to open a YouTube video without seeing an attack advertisement for or against New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte. I can’t watch Buzzfeed in peace without seeing, yet again, why I should or should not vote for the Republican senator. If the purpose of those ads was to sway my opinion, they fell short by a wide margin. Regardless of where I stand on the political spectrum, being inundated with pointless ads isn’t going to make me more likely to vote in a certain direction — if anything, it will make me incredibly annoyed at hearing the same propaganda over and over again. Why are billions of dollars spent each election cycle on pointless ads that have been proven to only slightly, if at all, sway the election in a candidate’s favor?

Student Spotlight: Multitalented artist Emily Neely '17

(11/03/16 4:00am)

Emily Neely ’17’s love of art started as a child when she would hand-copy pictures of horses, her favorite animals, from encyclopedias and books. Her mother noticed her proclivity for drawing and painting and suggested she attend an arts high school, where she concentrated on visual art. As a studio art minor at Dartmouth, she has continued to develop her style and technique while trying to find the intersection between her interests in sociology and art.

Guo: Cockroach in the Bathtub

(11/02/16 5:12am)

The year is 2059. I have always dreaded retirement: the sudden release from commitment, the odd opportunities to spend my afternoons in pajamas. What am I supposed to do with the free time? Pick up another hobby, probably. Read more books — more non-fiction, definitely. Maybe even write a novel (plot, genre and characters to be imagined at a much later time). Take care of my granddaughter when she’s born (this one’s a no-brainer). Mentor med students? Teach some courses? Sleep. A lot.
