Zaman: The Invisible Crisis

(11/06/18 7:00am)

The photograph of Amal Hussein, an emaciated 7-year-old Yemeni girl on the brink of death, took America by storm when it was first published in the New York Times. Its wide circulation drew long-overdue attention to Yemen’s ongoing crisis — although crisis seems too small a word for it. Famine and cholera have swept the country; as of June, one million Yemenis were infected with cholera, and 18 million don’t know where their next meal will come from. Of the country’s population of 28 million, over 22 million live in dire need of humanitarian aid. The health and survival of over 80 percent of Yemeni children are at risk. The U.N. has dubbed this catastrophe the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and potentially the worst famine the world has seen in a century if the war continues. 

Dartmouth study identifies severe scleroderma patients most likely to benefit from stem cell transplant

(11/06/18 7:45am)

Patients with hard-to-treat scleroderma will be happy to learn that an effective therapy for their painful autoimmune rheumatic disease may be soon in sight. A multi-center study by researchers at Dartmouth and other institutions found that a subset of patients who suffer from scleroderma are more likely to benefit from hematopoietic stem cell transplant than cyclophosphamide, the more standard drug therapy.

Morphy, the College's corpse flower, blooms early

(11/06/18 7:55am)

Stop and smell the roses — but perhaps not in the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center greenhouse, home of Dartmouth’s very own Amorphophallus titanum, which bloomed this past weekend. The plant, affectionately dubbed “Morphy” by a past greenhouse manager, is also known as the “corpse flower” due its rotting scent while in bloom.

One-on-One with Caroline Poleway '19

(11/05/18 7:10am)

The women’s swimming and diving team is off to a great start, recording their first win against the University of New Hampshire on Friday and looking to finish higher than last year’s eighth place performance at the Ivy League Championships. The Dartmouth sat down with co-captain Caroline Poleway ’19 to talk about the team’s prospects for the season as well as her swimming career. Poleway swam in multiple events last year, including in the 400m medley relay that set a Dartmouth school record. Poleway has high expectations for the team as well as herself based off of last year’s finish and the talent the first year students offer.

​Sticking to Sports: A Mess in College Park, Maryland

(11/05/18 7:15am)

I don’t want to write this column. I’d rather write about LSU-Bama from Baton Rouge, reflect on the Red Sox’s fourth title in my lifetime or break down another week of Connor McDavid showing his otherworldly speed and skill against the best hockey players in the world. But in light of recent events on a campus about 20 miles on the Beltway from where I grew up, it seems impossible to talk about anything else.

Rube Goldberg machine to be built in the Collis Center

(11/05/18 8:00am)

By 2020, two design and engineering students hope to have made campus a little happier. Julia Huebner ’20 and Sophie Frey ’20 formed the Collis Wall Project earlier this term to build a piece of public art in the form of a Rube Goldberg machine — a device that performs a simple task through a chain reaction —in the Collis Center by June of 2020. According to Huebner, they have enlisted four other student designers to help with the project.
